Charles Burchfeild, one of the finest American watercolorists of the 20th century- and perhaps our greatest visionary - used watercolors with weight, power and flexibility to achieve a variety of effects unprecedented in scale and technique for the medium. Working out of the 19th-century Romantic tradition in which nature's primordial energy is revealed throught the drama of human emotions, Burchfield makes the commonplace extraordinary, the everyday miraculous

The Jules Verne steam balloon : nine stories by Guy Davenport( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three angels, or daimons, or maybe neutrinos--who may also have been the Three Wise Men--drop into several of these stories via their steam balloon, the Jules Verne. They bring messages from the Consiliarii, but who are they? A council of heavenly spirits? The Force? A code name for God? And what might their message be? Could it be as simple as All you need is love? Maybe. Davenport ranges from ancient Greece to a somewhat contemporary Denmark; from Christian theology and ancient philosophy to pubescent phallocentrism and drug overdose

Americans in Paris : (1921-1931) : Man Ray, Gerald Murphy, Stuart Davis, Alexander Calder by Elizabeth Hutton Turner( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1920s, when cultural exchange across the Atlantic suddenly became heady and reciprocal, Americans traveling to Paris found their americanisme embraced. The French avant-garde, fueled by tempos and freedoms, loved jazz and the visual elegance of Machine Age aesthetics. The American fascination with technology, which electrified their work, gave new charge to European art. Paris welcomed Gerald Murphy, whose billboard-sized cubist icon dominated the 1924 Salon des Independants and launched a brief but briliant career; Stuart Davis, who explored the continuity between cubist painting, lithography, and jazz at the atelier Desjobert; Man Ray, who abandoned oils to begin "painting with light" in his movies and rayographs; and Alexander Calder whose wire circuses and portraits inspired critics to acknowledge art's inherent playfulness. Americans in Paris documents the work and influence of these four notables of the avant-garde, who startle and delight us even today
