Discovered lands, invented pasts : transforming visions of the American West( Book )

"A common theme of western American art--from the depictions of Indians by early explorers to the monumental landscapes of Albert Bierstadt to the vibrant images of Georgia O'Keeffe--is the transformation of the land through European-American exploration and resettlement. In this handsome book, leading authorities look at western American art of the past three centuries, reevaluating it from the perspectives of history, art history, and American studies." "Jules David Prown begins the book by discussing the need for interdisciplinary approaches to broaden the study of western American art. Nancy K. Anderson then calls for a reconsideration of western art as art rather than documentation and for the adoption of new methods to probe its aesthetic, historical, political, and cultural complexities. William Cronon explores what an environmental historian might learn from American landscape art, concluding that each image must be read as a multilayered view intertwining past, present, and future within a larger context of progress and expansionism. Examining representations of American Indians, Brian W. Dippie finds that early works pictured Indians caught up in a process of dramatic change while later artists showed them frozen outside of time; when the frontier ended, western art made nostalgia its defining characteristic. Martha A. Sandweiss argues that the ways in which views of the American west and its peoples reached nineteenth-century audiences--through large edition prints, book illustrations, or theatrical exhibitions--significantly affected both the images and the meanings attached to them. Susan Prendergast Schoelwer challenges popular perceptions of the frontier as a womanless domain, discovering abundant pictures of Native American women in the art of the western fur trade. Howard R. Lamar concludes by discussing the changing perceptions of western artists and inhabitants of their region's landscape in the twentieth century."

The architecture of the Yale Center for British Art : published on the occasion of the inauguration of the Yale Center for British Art by Jules David Prown( Book )

18 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Yale Center for British Art stands as the final masterpiece of the great twentieth-century American architect, Louis I. Kahn (1901-1974). The building received the 2005 American Institute of Architects Twenty-Five Year Award honoring "significant architectural landmarks... that have withstood the test of time." With perfect proportions, clear articulation of structure, and sensitively matched natural materials, the Center projects an aura of classical serenity. Paul Mellon's superb collection and other works of British art look splendid in the luminous interiors, bathed in controlled amounts of natural or incandescent light amidst the muted tones of oak and linen, travertine, and concrete that discreetly and appropriately allow art to be the focus of attention." "This handsome volume, originally published for the Center's grand opening in 1977, is a timely reminder of the Center's architectural distinction. Contemporaneous photographs and an enlightening essay by Jules David Prown provide an account of the architecture, design, and circumstances of its commission and building. A new foreword by its current director, Amy Meyers, brings the celebration of the Center into the present day."--BOOK JACKET

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1969 and 1970, Louis I. Kahn (1901--1974)--one of America's greatest 20th-century architects--participated in a series of interviews with a young German architectural historian, Heinrich Klotz, then a visiting professor at Yale University, and John W. Cook, who was teaching architecture at the Yale Divinity School. Louis I. Kahn in Conversation provides the first full edited transcript of these candid, illuminating interviews, which provide remarkable insights into Kahn's philosophy of architecture. The conversations touch on many of his iconic works, including the unbuilt City Tower Project for Philadelphia, the Yale University Art Gallery, the First Unitarian Church in Rochester, and major international projects then under construction, as well as the Yale Center for British Art, Kahn's final building, on which he was beginning work at the time. Illustrated with dozens of plans, drawings, and photographs, the book also features an introduction by Jules David Prown, the first director of the Yale Center for British Art, who recommended Kahn as its architect"--
