Vermeer and the masters of genre painting : inspiration and rivalry by Adriaan E Waiboer( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A landmark exploration of the engaging network of relationships among genre painters of the Dutch Golden Age. The genre painting of the Dutch Golden Age between 1650 and 1675 ranks among the highest pinnacles of Western European art. The virtuosity of these works, as this book demonstrates, was achieved in part thanks to a vibrant artistic rivalry among numerous first-rate genre painters working in different cities across the Dutch Republic. They drew inspiration from each other's painting, and then tried to surpass each other in technical prowess and aesthetic appeal. The Delft master Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) is now the most renowned of these painters of everyday life. Though he is frequently portrayed as an enigmatic figure who worked largely in isolation, the essays here reveal that Vermeer's subjects, compositions, and figure types in fact owe much to works by artists from other Dutch cities. Enlivened with 180 superb illustrations, Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting highlights the relationships - comparative and competitive - among Vermeer and his contemporaries, including Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu, and Frans van Mieris"--

Beyond Caravaggio by Letizia Treves( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Italian painter known as Caravaggio (1571-1610) claims a place among the most revolutionary figures in the history of art. His intense naturalism, almost brutal realism, and dramatic use of light had a wide impact on European painters, including Orazio Gentileschi, Valentin de Boulogne, and Gerrit van Honthorst. Each of Caravaggio's followers absorbed something different from his work, propagating his stylistic legacy across Europe. In this extensively illustrated catalogue, Letizia Treves introduces the international Caravaggesque movement and traces the distinct artistic personalities of its leading players. Even now, Caravaggio's name overshadows the other talented artists who adopted his approach to narrative painting: the use of theatrical lighting to illuminate a story encapsulated in a single, dramatic moment. Treves explains the innovative and unifying features of these painters' work and how, despite resistance to their style and subject matter, many outstanding Caravaggesque pictures found their way into important collections

William Orpen : politics, sex & death by Robert Upstone( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great British artists of the first quarter of the twentieth century, Sir William Orpen (1878-1931) is an example of an artist who, despite his career as a highly successful portrait painter, remains something of an outsider. Although Orpen is represented in many public collections in the UK, Ireland and the USA, his work does not fit easily into the conventional moulds of art history." "This illustrated monograph portrays an artist who, at the time of his death, was probably the best-known painter in Britain. The book reveals the full variety of Orpen's work, from his revitalization of the nude and his conversation pieces to his extraordinary allegories and war paintings, and analyses the series of self-portraits that are a particular feature of his oeuvre."--Jacket
Sorolla : Spanish master of light by Joaquín Sorolla( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida (1863-1923) was the leading Spanish painter of his day, world-famous when Picasso was still struggling to establish a name. This sumptuously illustrated book traces Sorolla's career at home and abroad, focusing on more than 60 canvases. These include portraits, landscapes, the bathers and seascapes for which he is most famous, and genre scenes of Spanish life. His monumental early works established the artist's reputation as an unflinching social realist. Sending pictures strategically to major exhibitions across Europe, Sorolla depicted peasants, fishermen, and sail-makers eking out meager existences; young women forced into prostitution; and naked, disabled orphans. Rarely had Impressionist technique been turned to such provocative ends. As Sorolla found a wealthy clientele toward the turn of the century, his focus turned to sun-drenched scenes of leisure and elegant sociability: beautiful women stroll in fashionable resorts and children gambol on the seashore. Here, leading scholars offer a contemporary assessment of his career and explore Sorolla's relations with the most famous bravura painters of the day, including John Singer Sargent and the Swedish artist Anders Zorn. An illustrated chronology by Blanca Pons Sorolla, the artist's great-granddaughter, provides additional information."

William John Leech : an Irish painter abroad by Denise Ferran( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Dublin in 1881, William John Leech considered himself an Irish painter although most of his career was spent abroad. He completed his training at the Academie Julian in Paris and painted in Brittany from 1903. While his early interior views and portraits reflect the tonal influence of Whistler, about 1910 he began to use a brighter, Post-impressionist palette. The later Brittany canvases are flooded with light and colour. During this period, his first wife Elizabeth Kerlin was the model in a number of exciting and experimental works such as Convent Garden, Brittany (National Gallery of Ireland). After the First World War, Leech divided his time between London and the South of France, travelling with his companion and later wife May Botterell. In the tradition of the 'Irish Impressionists' he was fascinated by the treatment of light in French painting, though he continued to explore different styles through his career. Leech painted portraits, landscapes and still lifes, including remarkable self-portraits, interiors and luxuriant aloes. Throughout his life he regularly exhibited in Ireland and England. The majority of his paintings are still in private hands and little known. This retrospective catalogue documents his reclusive life and confirms his place as a major Irish artist."--Jacket
