Tittle: On Being an Artist
Author: Michael Craig-Martin
Editorial: Art / Books
Place: Los Angeles, 2019
This is an erudite, insightful and amenable readable collection. Few living artists can claim to have had the influence of Michael Craig-Martin in the artworld. He was born in 1941 and he has been celebrated internationally for his art; he has also helped many generations of younger artists. His teachings have combined personal example and individual guidance, offering students insights gained from his own professional highs and lows. On Being an Artist, which partakes from memory and practical instruction, mixes reminiscence, personal philosophy, self-examination and advice for young artists. In a series of interesting episodes, Craig-Martin expresses himself with wit and candor on many ideas and concepts, events and people that have inspired and shaped him throughout his life, from his childhood in postwar America through his time as an art student in the 1960s and subsequent work as an art teacher, to his international success in later years.
This comprehensive study of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) offers a complete catalogue of his 871 paintings, alongside writings and essays, charting the life and work which continues to tower over art to this day.
