Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Displaying an artist's sensitivity, an editor's skill, and a camera's perceptive eye, Liberman's 1960 classic, The Artist in His Studio , presented a singular image of the great artists working in France during the 20th century. Twenty-eight years later, he offers a revised and expanded edition, strengthening his contribution to the world of art by adding material to some sections and enlarging the number of artists. Liberman's empathy and erudition, enhanced by fine reproduction quality, is exemplified by his intimate conversations with many of the artists, sensitive shots of the surroundings in which they created, and keen understanding of the creative process. Matisse's hand, a pensive Giacometti, the meticulous line of tools laid out by Braqueall are photographic witness to an intimacy pierced by the author's vision. Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum Lib.

Format: Hardcover
One way to judge my opinion of this book is for me to remember that I have read it and reread it many times. It is a fascinating look into the working spaces of some of the greatest artists of the 20th Century. The photos are usually Liberman's own and while good, they are not usually "fine art". However, they do provide glimpses into places few have been, and that now no longer exist. Do I recommend it? Try borrowing mine--sorry! A companion piece is another book entitled, "Latin American Artists in Their Studios". The photos were taken by professionals and they look it. Both books are worthy of study for serious art enthusiasts. For more info on Liberman, read "Alex", the story of his life.

This is a wonderful book full of extraordinary photos of artists and Lieberman's accounts of his meetings with them. They almost leap out of the pages at you because he brings them so much alive, both in his anecdotes and his pictures. I don't know any other book which makes me feel that I know these talented people, as if I had just met them, and I keep going back into the book to meet them again. A really good present for any artist or art lover.

MUST, I REALLY Must salute this perhaps dated, but CLASSIC of a book about artists..

Growing up in an ignorant town in Alabama

Artistically inclined , and with little inspiration

THIS was a delicious eye-opener

Chock full of insightful interviews

and photos of these artists in their studios, lovingly documented, down to their palettes.

This is a soul ful, delectable book about artists .

I heartilly urge, especially art students to just GRAB this, without hesitation ...
