The London paintings by André Derain( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first publication dedicated to the extraordinary series of paintings of London that Andre Derain produced at the height of his avant-garde notoriety, having been newly branded a Fauve or 'wild beast' in Paris for his uncompromising use of pure colour. Building on his rising artistic fame, Derain's dealer Ambroise Vollard sent him to London in 1906 to produce works that would rival Claude Monet's recently exhibited views of the city. The result was a series of canvases that confronted the traditions of Impressionism and constructed a new artistic language to express an unprecedented vision of the capital, seen not as fog-shrouded and gloomy but bathed in piercingly bright sunshine and radiating wild colours." "New research and the recent discovery of Derain's two London sketchbooks has completely revised our understanding of these paintings. It allows us to appreciate fully the impact of the young artist's three visits to the city between 1906 and 1907, considering especially the importance of his studies in the ethnographic galleries of the British Museum and his encounters with the foreign customs of London itself. Andre Derain: The London Paintings presents this new work and reproduces all 29 canvases in full colour together with pages from the sketchbooks for the first time."--Jacket
Michelangelo's Dream by Barnaby Wright( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michelangelo Buonarroti's (1475-1564) celebrated masterpiece The Dream (Il Sogno) has been described as one of the finest of all Renaissance drawings and it is amongst The Courtauld Gallery's greatest treasures. Based on new research, this illustrated publication examines The Dream in the context of the so-called 'presentation drawings' which Michelangelo gave to Tommaso de' Cavalieri, a young Roman nobleman with whom he had fallen passionately in love." "Further outstanding drawings by Michelangelo as well as letters and poems by the artist and works by his contemporaries are considered in this revealing study of one of the artist's most complex and personal drawings."--Jacket

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Paul Rubens, a touch of brilliance : oil sketches and related works from the State Hermitage Museum and the Courtauld Institute Gallery by Peter Paul Rubens( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two celebrated and complementary collections of Rubens' sketches - in the Courtauld Institute of Art in London and The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg - are brought together to form the basis of this study of the artist's work." "Often regarded as one of the most compelling and remarkable aspects of the artist's work, Rubens' oil sketches reveal the genesis of many of his most important commissions. This book, published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Hermitage Rooms, Courtauld Institute of Art, focuses on Rubens' projects where the Hermitage and Courtauld holdings are exceptionally rich, including the ceiling of the Banqueting House at Whitehall, and the now lost ceiling of the Jesuit church in Antwerp. By bringing together preparatory material from a number of major commissions this book aims to provide a concentrated account of the role of the oil sketch in Rubens' work."--Jacket
Renoir at the theatre : looking at La loge by Courtauld Institute Galleries( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the story of Pierre-Auguste Renoir's painting dubbed La Loge (The Theatre Box), created in 1874. This work is one of the masterpieces of Impressionism. Its depiction of an elegant couple on display in a box at the theater epitomizes the Impressionists' interest in the spectacle of modern life. At the heart of the painting is the complex play of gazes enacted by these two figures. In turning away from the performance, Renoir focused instead upon the theater as a social stage where status and relationships were on public display. This book unites La Loge with Renoir's other treatments of the subject and with loge paintings by contemporaries, including Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas. Concentrating on the early years of Impressionism during the 1870s, the book explores how these artists used the loge to capture the excitement and changing nature of fashionable Parisian society
Temptation in Eden : Lucas Cranach's Adam and Eve by Lucas Cranach( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Temptation in Eden: Lucas Cranach's 'Adam and Eve' is the catalogue of the first exhibition in Britain devoted to Lucas Cranach the Elder (around 1472-1553). Cranach was one of the greatest and most inventive painters of sixteenth-century Germany, and a personal friend of the Reformation theologian Martin Luther. Both the exhibition and this catalogue are focused around Cranach's Adam and Eve of 1526, one of the most beloved paintings in the Courtauld collections, and a work ideally suited to the artist's outstanding gifts as a portrayer of landscape, animals and the female nude." "Beautiful, beguiling and inventive, Adam and Eve depicts the split-second before mankind's fall from grace, and subsequent expulsion from paradise. This fully illustrated book presents new art historical and conservation research exploring the making and the meaning of this iconic image, and its place in Cranach's artistic production. It also provides a rare introduction to this great German artist in English."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turner and Peter De Wint, as well as numerous watercolours by lesser-known artists.

Becoming Picasso : Paris 1901 by Courtauld Institute Galleries( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1901 was a momentous and turbulent year for the nineteen-year-old Picasso. His first visit to Paris, at the end of 1900, had fuelled his ambitions and led to the prospect of an exhibition with one of the city's most important modern art dealers, Ambroise Vollard. As he prepared work for the show he received news that his closest friend, Carles Casagemas, had committed suicide. The tragedy would have a profound impact upon his art as the year unfolded. Picasso left for Paris in May with around 20 paintings and little over a month to produce enough work to fill his Vollard exhibition. Once there, he painted unstintingly, sometimes finishing three canvases in a single day. This great outpouring of creative energy resulted in more than 60 paintings for the exhibition. The canvases express Picasso's desire to take on and reinvent the styles and motifs of his artist heroes, such as Van Gogh, Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec
Boudin at Trouville by Vivien Hamilton( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Sickert : the Camden Town nudes by Walter Sickert( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition devoted to the group of female nudes painted by Walter Sickert (1860-1942) in and around Camden Town between 1905 and 1912. The uncompromising realism of Sickert's nudes, set in the murky interiors of cheap lodging houses, broke artistic conventions and shocked critics. Today they are recognised as being among his most important contributions to the development of twentieth-century art." "This publication looks in detail at Sickert's reinvention of the nude as a subject of modern painting. It explores the ways in which he attempted to overturn outmoded traditions of the genre and pursue instead a stridently realist approach. These ambitions achieved their most profound expression in his so-called Camden Town Murder paintings which are brought together in this exhibition for the first time. Walter Sickert: The Camden Town Nudes offers an account of this important body of work by one of the most significant British artists of the twentieth century."--Jacket
The bone beneath the pulp : drawings by Wyndham Lewis by Jacky Klein( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) was one of the key avant-garde figures in twentieth-century British art and a highly experimental and accomplished draughtsman. His drawings, startling in their range and visual dexterity, are renowned for their powerful line and distinctive colour, from the early Vorticist studies to portraits and works of imaginative fantasy. Lewis's drawings are here considered for the first time as a distinct contribution to his art. More than 50 colour images are reproduced."--Jacket
