Childe Hassam, American impressionist by H. Barbara Weinberg( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I believe the man who will go down to posterity is the man who paints his own time and the scenes of every-day life around him," declared Childe Hassam in 1892. It was as a pioneer of American Impressionism and perhaps its most prolific and successful practitioner that Hassam (1859-1935) realized this credo. In so doing, he provided an account of our national life during a dynamic period. At the same time he helped to create a wave of enthusiasm for American Impressionism that he rode to fame and fortune." "Today he is best known for his portrayals of Celia Thaxter's old-fashioned garden on Appledore Island, Maine, and his depictions of the flags, banners, and bunting displayed on New York's tall buildings in patriotic response to World War I." "This illustrated publication accompanies a major exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, the first retrospective presentation of Hassam's work in a museum since 1972. Unique to this volume are an account of Hassam's lifelong campaign to market his art, a study of the frames he selected and designed for his paintings, and an unprecedented lifetime exhibition record. Included in addition are a checklist of works in the exhibition and a chronology of Hassam's life. All works in the exhibition as well as comparative materials are reproduced."--Jacket
Samuel Palmer, 1805-1881 : vision and landscape by William Vaughan( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel Palmer (1805-81) is one of the most original and influential of British painters. A younger contemporary of Turner and Constable, he looked at nature as much with the inner as with the outer eye, producing vision-inspired landscapes of unprecedented boldness and great poetic richness that form a striking contrast to the dominating naturalism of the day." "Marking the bicentenary of Palmer's birth, this catalogue is published to accompany the largest retrospective exhibition of his work for nearly eighty years. Bringing together nearly all his greatest works from collections around the world, supplemented with essays by eight distinguished scholars, it celebrates the full range of the artist's achievement."--Jacket

Joseph Wright of Derby in Liverpool by Elizabeth E Barker( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1768 Joseph Wright left his native city of Derby and moved to Liverpool in search of recognition and success. Earlier the same year he had exhibited the masterly Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump to great acclaim in London, but he had failed to sell the picture. He would also, at the end of the year, find himself excluded from the Royal Academy. Liverpool offered Wright the opportunity to engage with wealthy clients who had little experience of art patronage. He painted portraits of the prosperous merchants and their families, and he continued to develop the brilliantly illuminated subject paintings on which his reputation chiefly rests today." "This illustrated book examines Wright's decisive impact on the artistic climate of the expanding port town of Liverpool and on the other artists working there. The Merseyside network of merchants, bankers, and amateur and professional artists that Wright encountered in the years around 1770 is identified as his true historical milieu. The book serves as the catalogue of the exhibition of the same name shown at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, and the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven in 2007-8"--Jacket

Ministry of Health by British Columbia( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Summary: The applicant requested access to records related to data sharing and research agreements between the Ministry of Health and four individuals, including information about delays or impediments to accessing data for research purposes. The Ministry refused to disclose some information in the responsive records under ss. 13, 15(1)(a), 15(1)(l) and 22 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (zFIPPAy). The Ministry established that disclosure of some of the information at issue could reasonably be expected to harm a computer system, so could be withheld under s. 15(1)(l). However, the Ministry did not prove that disclosure would be harmful to law enforcement, so it was not authorized to refuse to disclose information under s. 15(1)(a). Nor did the Ministry establish that it was authorized under s. 13 to withhold policy advice or recommendations because that information had already been disclosed elsewhere in the records. Finally, the adjudicator ordered disclosure of most of the information that was withheld under s. 22(1) because disclosure would not be an unreasonable invasion of third party personal privacy.."--P.

It also refused access to one of the agreements on the grounds that disclosure would harm the conduct of relations between the Province and other provinces and reveal information received in confidence from other provinces. The adjudicator found that all four agreements were protected by solicitor-client privilege."--Page [1]
The religious instruction of children at home by Elizabeth Barker( Book )

Samuel Palmer, 1805-1881 : vision and landscape by William Vaughan( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palmer began his career as an artist at an early age. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy at the age of fourteen (one of his sketchbooks from this time is in the British Museum's collection). In 1824, he met William Blake whose influence helped confirm his visionary approach to art. Palmer retreated into rural isolation in the village of Shoreham, Kent, his own 'Valley of Vision'. Here he produced his most distinctive work, and gathered around him a group of artists (including Edward Calvert and George Richmond) known as 'the Ancients'. He married in 1837, and on his two-year honeymoon in Italy, his style turned to intensely coloured watercolours, with an obvious spiritual connection to his subjects. The striking watercolour "A Cornfield by Moonlight with the Evening Star" is one of his finest works from the Shoreham period and was acquired by the British Museum in 1985 after a public appeal. Samuel Palmer was active during the great flowering of British landscape painting in the first half of the nineteenth century. His work influenced many artists of the twentieth century, including Graham Sutherland and Eric Ravilious
