John Ruskin and the Victorian eye by John Ruskin( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The six essays gathered in this book present an engaging look at the art and ideas of Victorian art critic John Ruskin, considered by many to be the greatest tastemaker of his time. Ruskin first came to fame in the 1840s for his articulate, impassioned defense of the paintings of J.M.W. Turner; later he championed the efforts of Pre-Raphaelite artists such as Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Elizabeth Siddal. As a lecturer at the University of Oxford and founder of the Saint George's Museum in Sheffield, England, Ruskin strove to instill in his followers a respect for craftsmanship and reverence for historic monuments. He actively promoted art education for all classes of people and spoke out continually against the social ills of his day. Ruskin believed that an artist's true gift was the power to see and to communicate moral as well as physical realities, and that insistence on the "art of seeing" serves as a unifying thread throughout the essays in this book, each of which addresses a different aspect of the critic's art and thought. Robert Hewison, a Ruskin scholar and theater critic for the London Sunday Times, recounts pivotal moments in Ruskin's life that were motivated by his encounters with Renaissance artworks. George P. Landow, Professor of English and Art at Brown University, discusses Ruskin's writing style, describing his "word paintings" and the evangelical prose with which he urged his readers to develop their own perceptive abilities. As a former art dealer and expert in British Victorian art, Christopher Newall brings special insight into Ruskin's own distinctive drawings. Susan Phelps Gordon, Curator of European Art at the Phoenix Art Museum, relates Ruskin's critical reaction to the art of his time, including the infamous Whistler vs. Ruskin libel trial of 1878 as well as Ruskin's relationships with and aspirations for the artists he supported. Anthony Lacy Gully, Associate Professor of Art History at Arizona State University, explores Ruskin's fascination with the natural world and his clashes with the scientific community. Susan P. Casteras, Curator of Paintings at the Yale Center for British Art and a lecturer in art history at Yale College, looks at Ruskin's theories on museums and their installations as he applied them in his Saint George's Museum, which he founded for the education of the miners of Sheffield. Complementing the essays are 179 beautiful illustrations - 40 in color - of works by Turner, Burne-Jones, Rossetti, Siddal, John Everett Millais, James Tissot, and many other artists; also included are a number of watercolors and drawings by Ruskin himself. A chronology of Ruskin's life, a bibliography, and an index round out this fascinating and very readable volume, which should remain a valuable resource for art lovers, Ruskin scholars, and Victoriana enthusiasts for many years to come

Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and twentieth-century Mexican art : the Jacques and Natasha Gelman collection = Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera y arte mexicano del siglo veinte : la colección de Jacques y Natasha Gelman by Pierre Schneider( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cosponsored by the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; the Dallas Museum of Art; and the Phoenix Art Museum, the bilingual exhibition catalog under review complements the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Twentieth-Century Modern Masters: The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. The two collections were mutually exclusive, for the Gelmans furnished their New York apartment with European art and their Mexican homes with Mexican art. Kahlo is represented by ten paintings, Rivera by nine; 34 artists created the additional 90 works. Most are illustrated full page in color, and exhibition curator Olivier Debroise includes short descriptions of the works as well as artist biographies. Art critic Sylvia Navarrete provides a chapter on the Gelmans' appreciation of modern figurative, surrealist, and abstract art and their relationships with many of the artists. The portraits of the now-deceased Gelmans commissioned from Kahlo, Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, Rafael Cidoncha, and Angel Zarraga are particularly haunting. Recommended for all modern art and Mexican art sections of public libraries

Weaving China's past : the Amy S. Clague collection of Chinese textiles by Claudia Brown( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western admiration of China's silk textiles dates back at least to the days of the Roman empire. The establishment of the Chinese republic caused a large number of imperial costumes, no longer needed for court ritual, to enter collectors' hands. Textiles curators have studied these in depth, yet American museums are just beginning to explore the broader topic of Chinese textiles, and to present splendid examples of the art along with porcelains, bronzes, enamels, and other decorative art traditions of China. This work examines an extraordinary private collection of Chinese textiles of diverse styles, functions, and techniques. The collection is remarkable for its chronological expanse, with works ranging in date from the Song (960-1279) and Jin (1115-1234) dynasties through the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). The book examines the relationship of these textiles to the greater fabric of Chinese art. Pieces in the collection have been subjected to microscopic examination and radiocarbon dating as well as full examination by a textiles conservator, and the results of these studies are included. The yarn type, thread count, weave, and supplementary materials are identified. Several of the brocades feature gold fibers, and these have been analyzed to identify specific techniques. A remarkable discovery was the use of peacock feathers twisted with silk fibers in a kesi woven during the Qing dynasty. The study of Chinese silk textiles, like the study of Chinese ceramics and metalwork, offers a glimpse into a complex tradition in which both organized industry and individual creativity played a role. Traditional China viewed spinning, weaving, and embroidery as divinely inspired arts to be practiced dutifully in the home. Concurrently, however, luxury textiles were commissioned for religious, state, and private use. Silk was essential in China's foreign policy, used along with gifts of tea and silver to pacify borderlands. Together with porcelain, silk became a major commodity for export to Europe. Elaborate techniques were developed for producing complex designs in both brocade and embroidery. During China's later dynasties, textile arts were pursued as fine arts, appreciated on equal footing with painting and calligraphy

In contemporary rhythm : the art of Ernest L. Blumenschein by Peter H Hassrick( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The text by Peter H. Hassrick and Elizabeth J. Cunningham draws on Blumenschein's papers as well as other archival sources to explore in depth the dimensions of his multifaceted life and his place in American history and culture. They examine his sixty-four-year artistic career, first as an illustrator and then a painter, revealing how his technique evolved and how his schooling and the artistic movements of his time informed his work. The authors demonstrate how Blumenschein's musical training profoundly influenced his painting, and they address issues overlooked in previous studies, such as Blumenschein's pivotal role in helping to preserve American Indian culture. Additional contributions by noted art historians focus on particular paintings, such as Superstition (1921) and Jury of the Trial of a Sheepherder for Murder (1936), and particular aspects of the artist's work, including modernism and his promotion of American Indian rights." "In Contemporary Rhythm shows that, far from simply a western painter, Blumenschein is a major figure in twentieth-century American art, bridging traditionalism and modernism. As the only book of its kind available on this influential artist, it is a major contribution to American art history. It is also a visual feast."--Jacket

Super Indian : Fritz Scholder, 1967-1980 by Fritz Scholder( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past two centuries the lives of American Indians have been romanticized and idealized in everything from Hollywood films to souvenir shops. Fritz Scholder (1937-2005) took another approach in his artwork. He blended figurative and Pop Art influences to create compelling and revolutionary images that challenge viewers to look beyond the stereotypes. Part American Indian himself, Scholder defied the label "Native American artist." This paradox and others are evident in his renowned Indian series, which spanned the years 1967-1980. In this generously illustrated exhibition catalog, noted scholars discuss Scholder's influences and artistic process, including, for the first time, an assessment of the impact of his foreign travels on his work. Featuring iconic paintings, rarely seen monumental canvases, and lithographs, "Super Indian: Fritz Scholder 1967-1980" situates Scholder in the figurative arts tradition and confirms his brilliance as a colorist."--Publisher's website
A century of retablos : the Janis and Dennis Lyon collection of New Mexican santos, 1780-1880 by Charles M Carrillo( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A rich tradition of religious painting flourished in New Mexico during the years prior to statehood in 1912. In the Spanish colonial era, many painters and their workshops created painted wood panels depicting various santos, or saints, and Christian holy figures, earning for themselves the title of santeros - saint makers. These colorful, narrative panels, called retablos, were worshipped in churches and private homes. Their heyday in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries remains a largely overlooked episode of the history of art in New Mexico." "This book and accompanying exhibition, originating at the Phoenix Art Museum, is groundbreaking in its approach. Previously unconsidered questions and the biographies of various santeros are explored, as well as the relationships among artists, workshops, and patrons. The essays explore themes of art and religious value, artists' interpretations of religious symbolism, and the stylistic development of the santeros."--BOOK JACKET
