Off the pedestal : new women in the art of Homer, Chase, and Sargent by Newark Museum( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pictures of women portrayed as professional, athletic, and intellectual seem common to us today, but until the late nineteenth century, such representations of strong, self-reliant women were virtually, if not completely, absent from the visual arts and literature." "Off the Pedestal is the first book to explore the radical change that occurred in the representation of women immediately after the Civil War. Three critical essays draw on the visual culture of the period to show how postbellum social changes in the United States brought issues of subordination and autonomy to the surface for women in much the same way that they did for blacks. As women began attending college in greater numbers, entering professions previously dominated by men, and demanding greater personal freedom, these "new women" were featured more frequently in the visual arts and in a manner that made it clear that they had ambitions outside the domestic sphere." "Featuring more than seventy color and black-and-white images, Off the Pedestal is a window into the ways that identities and attitudes are forged on the stage of visual culture."--Jacket
Angels & tomboys : girlhood in nineteenth-century American art by Holly Pyne Connor( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explores the myriad ways artists portrayed young girls, from the sentimental, innocent stereotype to the freespirited individual. Works by John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, and Thomas Eakins, together with those by leading women artists, such as Cecilia Beaux and Mary Cassatt, reveal a new, provocative psychological element not found in early Victorian portraiture, while the mischievous tomboys in Lilly Martin Spencer's paintings and the pure angels in the works of Abbot Handerson Thayer underscore the complexity of girlhood--and of representing that evanescent phase. Essays ... consider the historical, social, and literary contexts of the artworks, drawing on sources as varied as etiquette books, poems, censuses, and the histories of medicine and economics. With more than 130 illustrations--including paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs ..."--Publisher description
Small but sublime : intimate views by Durand, Bierstadt and Inness by Newark Museum( Book )

John Singer Sargent by John Singer Sargent( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American painter John Singer Sargent's (1856-1925) world of images is full of contrasts. The technically brilliant Sargent had an impressive international career, especially with his elegant portraits of personalities from the upper echelons of international high society, but there are also several lesser-known yet interesting sides to his oeuvre. This exhibition marks the first extensive presentation of Sargent's work in the Nordic region. Sargent may have been of American parentage, but most of all he was a cosmopolitan: born in Florence, he studied in Paris, lived in London and travelled around the world. His friends and acquaintances included his Nordic contemporaries Anders Zorn and Albert Edelfelt and there are many parallels between their careers. Sargent's artistic production was extensive; estimated at over 900 paintings and twice as many watercolours. Exhibition: Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, Sweden (13.10.2018-13.01.2019)

Angels and tomboys. Girlhood in nineteenth-century American art by Holly Pyne Connor( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of the civil War, the american girl seemed transformed at once more introspective and adventurous than her counterpart of the previous generation. For the first time, girls claimed the attention of genre artists, and though the culture still prized the demure female child of the past, complementary images of angel and tomboy emerged as competing visions of this new generation. 'Angels and Tomboys' explores the diverse ways 19th-century artists portrayed girls, from the sentimental stereotype to the free-spirited individual. Works by John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer and others reveal a new, provocative psychological element not found in early Victorian portraiture, while the tomboys in lilly martin Spencer's paintings and the angels by John George Brown underscore the complexity of young girlhood.
