George Stubbs, 1724-1806 : science into art by George Stubbs ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This thorough appreciation of the eighteenth century master of animal painting looks beyond the artist's sporting scenes to explore Stubbs' full range of work. Although George Stubbs is best known for his images of hounds and horses charging round the British countryside, the painter was also an avid student of the broader animal world. Among his subjects were zebras, cheetahs, and moose, which he drew from life in the exotic menageries where they were kept. This volume features gorgeous color reproductions of paintings that highlight the painter's genius for combining realism and lyricism. It includes numerous drawings and prints--among them the exceptional studies for his "The Anatomy of the Horse" series. Informative essays discuss Stubbs' superb aesthetic sensibility, his far-reaching scientific studies, and his place in the pantheon of eighteenth-century European painters."--Publisher's website
Jean-François Millet : drawn into the light by Jean François Millet ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Few artists of the nineteenth century created works as subtly evocative, as socially poignant, and as artistically influential as Jean-Francois Millet did. This book examines Millet's technical and creative achievement, focusing on his rarely seen pastels, watercolors, and drawings, and considering them as independent works of art, as procedural steps toward paintings, and as important elements in his finished pictures."--BOOK JACKET
Il ritratto nella Gran Bretagna del Settecento : teoria e pratica by Brian Allen ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Noble dreams, wicked pleasures : orientalism in America, 1870-1930 by Holly Edwards ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Noble Dreams, Wicked Pleasures explores complex American attitudes toward the Near East--as revealed in collected paintings, interior design, and multiple vernacular forms--at the formative moment of industrialization and the crystallization of a truly mass culture. Published to coincide with the multimedia exhibition that opens at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and travels to the Walters Art Gallery and the Mint Museum of Art, this catalogue considers how urban, mercantile, Protestant America represented the Islamic world of the Middle East and North Africa in ways that say more about itself than the foreign culture. This gorgeously illustrated volume first looks at the use of Orientalist stereotypes by some of the country's most important high art painters of the nineteenth century: Frederic Edwin Church's treatment of the exotic terrain through a lens of deep religiosity; a more cosmopolitan reading of the harem girl by John Singer Sargent; the perfumed alternative to industrial capitalism conjured in the landscapes and market scenes of Samuel Colman and Louis Comfort Tiffany; and interpretations of the Orient as emancipatory by Ella Pell, the only major woman Orientalist. The book next traces the popularization of Orientalism in the decorative arts (including a few treasures from Olana, Church's Moorish-style home on the Hudson), on Broadway, and in Hollywood, as well as through advertising that linked consumer products with visual suggestions of exotic sexuality and through cultural objects, such as the Shriners' fez
