S.J. Peploe by Samuel John Peploe( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samuel John Peploe (1871-1935) was the eldest of the four artists popularly known as 'The Scottish Colourists'. Born in Edinburgh, he was drawn to France and returned to paint there frequently, moving in 1910 to Paris, where he moved in artistic avant-garde circles. His painting style gave way to a more contemporary and expressive approach, and he used rich colours applied with more structured brushstrokes. In 1912 Peploe returned to Edinburgh and slowly began to build a successful career as an exhibiting artist. From around 1914 until his death, he sought to paint the perfect still life. A modest selection of props, including roses or tulips, fans, books, fruits and Chinese vases, were carefully placed in infinite varieties on patterned drapery. In 1929 he explained: 'There is so much in mere objects, flowers, leaves, jugs, what not - colours, forms, relation - I can never see mystery coming to an end'
Monet and French landscape : Vétheuil and Normandy by Monet and French Landscape( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the late 1870s and early 1880s Monet reached a crossroads in his career. Based in Vetheuil and later at Poissy, he was often short of money and, even though radical thought and new scientific developments continued to inform much of his work of this period, he was also obliged to consider a more conventional approach, often catering to the market. During the 1880s he rethought his earlier emphasis on modernity and developed his skills as a painter of pure landscape, culminating in the experimental works he produced on the Normandy coast. This collection of essays, many by leading scholars in the field, looks in depth at the political, economic, scientific, religious, literary and art historical context for this complex and often contradictory period in Monet's life."--Jacket
Van Gogh's twin : the Scottish art dealer Alexander Reid 1854-1928 by Frances Fowle( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Reid was one of the most influential art dealers of his time. A close friend of Whistler and the Van Gogh brothers, he was the first Brittish dealer to take a serious interest in impressionist art. He was also a contemporary of the Glasgow boys and supported emerging artists such as Henry, Hornel and Crawhall as well as the Scottish colourist. His clients were rich Scottish merchants and industrialists who made their fortunes on the back of Scotland's rapid economic development, and whom he persuaded to buy impressionism well in advance of their English contemporaries. In this first biography devoted to an unsung hero of the Brittish art world, Frances Fowle traces the history of Reid's gallery against the background of a fascinating period of economic boom and bust
L'impressionnisme et les Américains by France) Musée des impressionnismes (Giverny( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ouvrage publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée au musée des impressionnistes à Giverny, du 28 mars au 29 juin 2014. L'histoire de l'impressionnisme américain commence avec Mary Cassatt et John Singer Sargent. Tous deux travaillent aux côtés des impressionnistes français et jouent un rôle dans la définition des tendances avant-gardistes de leur temps. Parmi la jeune génération, beaucoup découvrent l'impressionnisme à travers les tableaux qu'ils admirent à Paris, mais aussi à Boston et à New York. S'ils s'approprient certains aspects de la technique impressionniste, ils en inventent d'autres en adaptant leurs styles respectifs au public des États-Unis. L'Impressionnisme et les Américains propose une exploration inédite des débuts de la pratique impressionniste chez les peintres américains des deux côtés de l'Atlantique
Daubigny and impressionism by Frances Fowle( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known today for his atmospheric views of the river Oise, Charles Francois Daubigny was a pioneer of modern landscape painting and an important precursor of French Impressionism. Although commercially highly successful he was often criticised for his broad, sketch-like handling and unembellished view of nature, and was dubbed the leader of 'the school of the impression'. As a result he drew the attention of the next generation of artists, among them Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh, who were inspired by Daubigny's frank naturalism, bold compositions and technical innovations. Theirs was an artistic dialogue which spanned thirty years, from the early 1860s to the end of Van Gogh's short life

Monet au Havre : les années décisives by Géraldine Lefebvre( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Comment naissent les révolutions? L'impressionnisme en fut une, et Monet son principal acteur. Pour mieux comprendre ce que cette peinture a de profondément neuf, il faut revenir sur les lieux de son apparition, interroger les hommes et les femmes qui permirent à Monet d'accomplir sa rupture historique. Trente années décisives séparent 1845, époque où la famille Monet s'installe au Havre, et 1874, date de la première exposition impressionniste à Paris. Le jeune homme, né en 1840, effectue aux portes de l'Océan ses premiers pas artistiques, à une époque elle-même bouleversée par l'essor de la photographie et les attentes d'une nouvelle clientèle. Dans le sillage de Courbet, Boudin, Jongkind, Daubigny, qu'il fréquente tour à tour, le jeune peintre observe et trouve sa voie. À partir de 1859,il se partage entre la Normandie et Paris, où il approfondit sa formation artistique auprès des futurs impressionnistes. C'est le temps des grandes marines exécutées dans le port, des paysages où s'élabore le vocabulaire de la jeune peinture, des premiers chefs-d'oeuvre, La Terrasse à Sainte-Adresse, Impression, soleil levant. Ce livre, pour la première fois, articule les prémisses d'une révolution en peinture aux richesses d'un pays dont le territoire a pour coeur Le Havre. Une équipe de chercheurs internationaux, réunis par Géraldine Lefebvre, fait le point sur ces années décisives. Documents inédits à l'appui, ils passent au crible le milieu familial, la vie havraise et son incidence sur Monet, les conditions de sa première formation artistique, les sites peints, les influences à l'oeuvre dans la peinture du jeune artiste, l'évolution de sa technique, les premiers mécènes. Une chronologie, des cartes et un arbre généalogique apportent une documentation essentielle à la compréhension du peintre et de son parcours."--Page 4 of cover

American impressionism : a new vision, 1880-1900 by Katherine M Bourguignon( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lively, beautifully illustrated book focuses on a group of American artists who applied Impressionist ideas and techniques to American subjects, and in so doing, they attracted and cultivated an enthusiastic American audience. These artists, including Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, James McNeill Whistler, Theodore Robinson, William Merritt Chase, and Childe Hassam, invented a new and highly diverse formulation of the Impressionist movement. Essays by experts in the field of Impressionism discuss the impact of Impressionism on the countryside and city paintings of Robinson and Hassam; and consider significant pictures by Cassatt, Sargent, and Whistler that demonstrate their role in the exploration of brilliant color harmonies and compositions developed from contact with French artists such as Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. The book features more than 60 paintings, some well known, others less familiar, produced in Europe and America. By representing American imagery, from the Atlantic coastline to New York’s public gardens, through the most current ideas about art-making, the artists showcased here created a unique expression of an evolving national identity.0Exhibition: Musée des Impressionnismes de Giverny, France (29.3.-29.6.2014) / National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK (19.7.-19.10.2014) / Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid, Spain (4.11.2014-1.2.2015)
