About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Jan Yoors Tapestries.

Description:

A catalogue of art works created in the last years of the artist's life and assembled as a tribute after his death. Undated but presumed 1981. The publication's copyright date is 1981. Moreover, a heavy glassine insert, perhaps unique to this copy, states, in a neat ink hand, "With all our good wishes for Christmas [1981] and for all of 1982." Presumed printed in the USA. Technically ex library but with almost no ex-library marks. The glassine insert has a "received" stamp in light ink dated December 30, 1981, and there is also a discreet library stamp on the reverse blank side of the first sheet of illustrations. We can find no other markings, ex library or otherwise. Plain beige paper wrappers, lettered in black on both sides. The wrappers with repairs in clear tape to the spine. Oblong, 8.25 x 11.5 inches, unfolded. Reproduced here are lithograph cartoons of actual tapestries created and woven by the artist. With 13 sheets of heavy matte paper in the form of broadsides, i.e., with printing on one side only, the sheets measuring 8.25 x 23 inches unfolded. The first double-sheet is a B&W key to the 19 tapestry cartoons featured in this publication. The remaining twelve double-sheets with large-format reproductions of all 19 cartoons in vivid color. Apart from the two ex-library marks noted and the amateur tape repairs to the wrapper this is an exceptionally clean copy. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. The following is excerpted from the wrapper notes: "Jan Yoors [1922-1977] was a writer, photographer and sculptor, as well as a tapestry artist. He was his own designer, he made his own cartoons, and he was his own artisan in his own studio. At the time of his death Yoors left behind a number of working cartoons which he had yet to translate into tapestries. After his death his wife continued to execute these working cartoons." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Northwestern University Press, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Hidden Tapestry reveals the unforgettable story of Flemish American artist Jan Yoors-childhood vagabond, wartime resistance fighter, and polyamorous urban bohemian. At the peak of his fame in the 1970s, Yoors s photographs and vast tapestries inspired a dedicated following in his adopted Manhattan. Though his intimate friends guessed the rough outline of his colorful life, Hidden Tapestry is first to detail his astonishing secrets. At twelve, Jan s life took an extraordinary and unexpected turn when he wandered into a Roma encampment on the outskirts of his native Antwerp just as the place was being raided. Rather than return home, Jan fled with the Roma and continued to live on-and-off with them and with his own family for several years. As an adult in German-occupied France, Yoors joined the Resistance. Defying repeated arrests and torture by the Gestapo, he worked first as a saboteur and later escorted Allied soldiers trapped behind German lines across the Pyrenees to freedom. After the war, he married childhood friend Annabert van Wettum and embarked on his career as an artist. When a friend of Annabert s, Marianne Citroen, modeled for Yoors, Hidden Tapestry reveals how the two began an affair, which led the three to form a polyamorous unit that would last for the rest of their lives. Moving to New York, the trio became part of the bohemian life of Greenwich Village in the 1950s, Marianne being presented as Annabert s sister. Told in arresting detail by Debra Dean, best-selling author of The Madonnas of Leningrad, Yoors s story is a luminous and inspiring account of resilience, resourcefulness, and love.
