Rodin's art : the Rodin collection of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University by Albert E Elsen ( Book )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The late Albert Elsen was the first American scholar to study seriously the work of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, and the person most responsible for a revival of interest in the artist as a modern innovator - after years during which the sculpture had been dismissed as so much Victorian bathos. After a fortuitous meeting with the financier, philanthropist, and art collector B. Gerald Cantor, Elsen helped Cantor build a major collection of Rodin's work. A large part of this collection, consisting of more than two hundred works, was donated to Stanford University's museum by Mr. Cantor, who died in 1996. In size, Stanford's collection is surpassed only by the Musee Rodin in Paris and rivaled only by the collection in Philadelphia
Law, ethics, and the visual arts by John Henry Merryman ( Book )
31 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in English and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Law, Ethics and the Visual Arts describes and critically discusses what happens when the art world encounters the law and vice versa. Thorough a combination of primary source materials, excerpts from professional and art journals and extensive textual notes, this work presents a thorough analysis of, inter alia: the fate of works of art in wartime; the international trade in stolen and illegally exported cultural property; artistic freedom, censorship and state support for art and artists; copyright, droit moral and droit de suite; the artist's professional life and death; collectors and the art market; income and estate taxation; charitable donations of works of art, and art museums and their collections. Art world professionals, including practising and academic lawyers, the art trade, art administrators, museum trustees and staff, art historians, archaeologists and art collectors will find this book of value."--Jacket
