Hugh Steers: The Complete Paintings

                    February 23rd 2016
                    isbn: 0967842565 (ISBN13: 9780967842561)
                    Hugh Steers: The Complete Paintings is the first publication on the career of American figurative painter Hugh Steers                     (1962-95), who died of AIDS at the age of 32. Committed to figurative painting at a time when it had fallen out of favor,                     Steers painted expressionist-realist narratives of a life shadowed by isolation and mortality, yet infused with wry humor,                     camp and what Steers himself called a "gorgeous bleakness." Steers consciously merged AIDS, intimacy and the body                     into the traditional vocabulary of painting.

                    ISBN 3867871663 (ISBN13: 9783867871662)

                    The list of artists who had major influence on the gay movement is rather short, since the movement itself is just a few                     decades old. But without a doubt Tom of Finland has to be included, the man whose amazing drawings tell us everything                     about love, lust and life of those hunks who have a good heart and live a simple life. Tom of Finland - Life and Work of a                     Gay Hero is a detailed anthology which is dedicated to his body of work from its early beginnings to the last years. With                     many drawings, a lot of photos and an extensive biography it gives you a portrait of this unique artist, which is as many-                    sided and life-embracing as the artist himself.

Fire in the Belly: The Life and Times of David Wojnarowicz

                    July 17th 2012
                    isbn: 1596915331 (ISBN13: 9781596915336)
                    David Wojnarowicz was an abused child, a teen runaway who barely finished high school, but he emerged as one of the                     most important voices of his generation. He found his tribe in New York's East Village, a neighborhood noted in the                     1970s and '80s for drugs, blight, and a burgeoning art scene. His creativity spilled out in paintings, photographs, films,                     texts, installations, and in his life and its recounting-creating a sort of mythos around himself. His circle of East Village                     artists moved into the national spotlight just as the AIDS plague began its devastating advance, and as right-wing culture                     warriors reared their heads. As Wojnarowicz's reputation as an artist grew, so did his reputation as an agitator-because                     he dealt so openly with his homosexuality, so angrily with his circumstances as a Person With AIDS, and so fiercely with                     his would-be censors.

POPism: The Warhol Sixties

                    January 1st 1980
                    ISBN: 0156031116 (ISBN13: 9780156031110)

                    Anecdotal, funny, frank, POPism is Warhol’s personal view of the Pop phenomenon in New York in the 1960s and a look                     back at the relationships that made up the scene at the Factory, including his rela­tionship with Edie Sedgewick, focus of                     the upcoming film Factory Girl. In the detached, back-fence gossip style he was famous for, Warhol tells all—the ultimate                     inside story of a decade of cultural revolution.

Romaine Brooks: A Life

                    September 22nd, 2015
                    isbn: 0299298604 (ISBN13: 9780299298609)
                    The artistic achievements of Romaine Brooks (1874–1970), both as a major expatriate American painter and as a                     formative innovator in the decorative arts, have long been overshadowed by her fifty-year relationship with writer Natalie                     Barney and a reputation as a fiercely independent, aloof heiress who associated with fascists in the 1930s. In Romaine                     Brooks: A Life, art historian Cassandra Langer provides a richer, deeper portrait of Brooks's aesthetics and                                         experimentation as an artist—and of her entire life, from her chaotic, traumatic childhood to the enigmatic decades after                     World War II, when she produced very little art.

Gay Art

                    July 1st 2008
                    isbn: 1844844374 (ISBN13: 9781844844371)
                    Divulging the rich tradition of homosexuality in the arts from an unabashed perspective, Gay Art represents a unique                     effort in the art publishing market whose cultural relevance will ensure its success. It is a scientific study led by Professor                     James Smalls who teaches art history in the prestigious University of Maryland, Baltimore. The author highlights the                     sensibility particular to homosexuals, and abandons all classical clichés and sociological approaches. This book                     examines the process of creation and allows one to comprehend the contribution of homosexuality to the evolution of                     emotional perception. In a time when all barriers have been overcome, this analysis offers a new understanding of our                     civilisations masterpieces.

Andy Warhol

                    January 1st 1997
                    ISBN 0300135556 (ISBN13: 9780300135558)

​​                    In a work of great wisdom and insight, art critic and philosopher Arthur Danto delivers a compact, masterful tour of Andy ​​                    Warhol’s personal, artistic, and philosophical transformations. Danto traces the evolution of the pop artist, including his ​​                    early reception, relationships with artists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and the Factory ​​                    ​​                    phenomenon. He offers close readings of individual Warhol works, including their social context and philosophical ​​                    dimensions, key differences with predecessors such as Marcel Duchamp, and parallels with successors like Jeff Koons. ​​                    Danto brings to bear encyclopedic knowledge of Warhol’s time and shows us Warhol as an endlessly multidimensional ​​                    figure—artist, political activist, filmmaker, writer, philosopher—who retains permanent residence in our national ​​                                   imagination.

Strange Sisters: The Art of Lesbian Pulp Fiction 1949-1969

                    August 1st, 1999
                    ISBN 0140284028 (ISBN13: 9780140284027)

                    In the scandalous world of pulp fiction in the 1950s and into the 60s, detectives, gangsters, and mad doctors were joined                     on the racks by bad girls, dissolute youths, drug-crazed beatniks, and other assorted miscreants and misfits. Where                     romance met with soft porn there was also a surprisingly large population of butch brunettes pursuing and seducing                     blond femmes. This was an alternate universe of erotic pulp fiction where gals and dolls were exploring the illicit                     pleasures of lesbian love -- much to the delight of a largely male, heterosexual readership. Before the sexual revolution                     of the 1960s, these books offered a thrilling peek into the deviant underworld of wild passion and scandalous sex.

Tom of Finland: His Life and Times

                    ISBN 031211365X (ISBN13: 9780312113650)

                    When the definitive history of the emergence of gay culture in the second half of the twentieth century is written, one                     individual artist is almost certain to be acknowledged for having singlehandedly shaped the erotic imaginations of                     generations of gay men: the Scandinavian illustrator Tom of Finland. Working alone and in secret in a far-off land, the                     remarkable drawings that sprang from this artist's hands, leather man, bikers, cowboys, cops, lumberjacks, hardhats,                     soldiers, and sailors -- become archetypal images that delineated the shape of homoerotic desire.

                    ISBN
026263242X (ISBN13: 9780262632423)
​​                    Andy Warhol (1928-1987), one of the most celebrated artists of the last third of the twentieth century, owes his unique ​​                    place in the history of visual culture not to the mastery of a single medium but to the exercise of multiple media and ​​                    roles. A legendary art world figure, he worked as an artist, filmmaker, photographer, collector, author, and designer. ​​                    Beginning in the 1950s as a commercial artist, he went on to produce work for exhibition in galleries and museums. The ​​                    range of his efforts soon expanded to the making of films, photography, video, and books. Warhol first came to public ​​                    notice in the 1960s through works that drew on advertising, brand names, and newspaper stories and headlines.
