Gerrit Dou, 1613-1675 : master painter in the age of Rembrandt by Ronni Baer( Book )

19 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerrit Dou, Rembrandt's first pupil, was lauded at an early age by his contemporaries as a model for other painters. His works, sought by collectors throughout Europe, fetched extremely high prices well into the eighteenth century. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, Dou's reputation had fallen into eclipse, and the works of a master whose fame had once equaled that of Rembrandt appeared only rarely, if at all, in exhibitions of Dutch art. In the last thirty years scholars have begun to reevaluate the artistic achievement of Gerrit Dou. This book, which accompanies the first international exhibition devoted exclusively to Dou's works, provides an opportunity to reassess the artist's achievements."--Jacket
Rembrandt's Journey : Painter, Draftsman, Etcher by Clifford S Ackley( Book )

17 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Illustrated with some 200 works in all these media, this book traces the remarkable evolution of Rembrandt's art over four decades, from the robust physical energy of his early productions to the breadth, simplicity, and meditative beauty of this later works. It establishes new and important connections among these works and among the three media that the artist explored throughout his career. It encompasses the wide range of his vision, from the tragic and spiritual to the earthy and comic. And it gives full due to Rembrandt's narrative sensibilities, showing how he endowed his figures (particularly in biblical scenes) with unprecedented psychological nuance and vividness. Published to accompany the first comprehensive American survey of this work in decades, Rembrandt's Journey offers a fresh, authoritative view of this endlessly familiar, yet still unknown, artist."--Jacket
Class Distinctions : Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer by Ronni Baer( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Dutch Republic in the 17th century was home to one of the greatest flowerings of painting in the history of Western art. Freed from the constraints of royal and church patronage, artists created a rich outpouring of works that circulated through an open market to patrons and customers at every level of Dutch society. The closely observed details of daily life captured in portraits, genre scenes and landscapes offer a wealth of information about the possessions, activities and circumstances that distinguished members of the social classes, from the nobility to the urban poor. The dazzling array of paintings gathered here--by artists such as Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch and Gerard ter Borch, as well as Rembrandt and Vermeer--illuminated by essays from leading scholars, invites us to explore a vibrant early modern society and its reflection in a golden age of brilliant painting"--
The poetry of everyday life : Dutch painting in Boston by Ronni Baer( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seventeenth-century Dutch paintings were often made for a newly wealthy middle class and were of a size, subject, and scale appropriate to their homes. Predominantly Protestant and ruled by an oligarchy rather than the monarchy prevalent elsewhere, The Netherlands stood apart from much of the rest of contemporary Europe." "From early on, Americans have felt an affinity for seventeenth-century Dutch painting, perhaps because it reflects their own ideals and social structures: a shared belief in democracy, religious freedom, and prosperity; the rise of the middle class, and a Protestant work ethic. Tradition has it that American notions of national pride and nostalgia, particularly during the nineteenth century with its increasing urbanization, responded to the domestic scale, humble subject matter, and naturalistic style of works by the Dutch." "The Poetry of Everyday Life features sixty such paintings from Boston private collections."--Jacket
So many brilliant talents : art & craft in the age of Rubens by Ronni Baer( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ori Gersht : history repeating by Al Miner( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first comprehensive survey of the photographs, films, and videos of Ori Gersht, this richly illustrated book presents the best of Gersht's achingly beautiful work and explores how he intertwines spectacles of painterly and narrative imagery with personal and collective memory, metaphysical journeys, contextualized spaces, and the history of art and photography. Pushing the camera to the limits of what it can record, Gersht engages an aesthetic that reflects both a highly researched and instinctive approach to his chosen media. Be it the scars left on the sunlit yet war-torn interiors of buildings in Sarajevo, the white noise of a modern-day train journey to Auschwitz, or the clearing of trees in a forest that once stood witness to mass murder in the Ukraine, Gersht's vision bridges a history that is full of violent horror and a world of emergent, transcendent beauty. Ori Gersht was born in Israel in 1967 and is currently based in London. A conduit between the past and present, his large-scale photographs and videos wed old masters to new technologies, quoting from such sources as Spanish and Dutch still- life painting and the Hudson River Valley School.Gersht's interest in history also goes beyond the visual arts, encompassing the political history that has shaped his personal identity and that of all of us scarred by violence in our contemporary world. His work has been acquired and commissioned by major art institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, London, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. -- Publisher's blurb
