Portraits of a people : picturing African Americans in the nineteenth century by Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the American Revolution through the Civil War and on into the Gilded Age, American artists created dynamic images of black sitters. Many of these portraits illuminate the search for a self-possessed identity as well as cultural stereotypes and practices. Portraits of a People looks critically at images made of and by African Americans. They range from a 1773 engraving of the African-born poet Phillis Wheatley purportedly drawn by her friend, the slave Scipio Moorhead, to an 1897 portrait of the artist's mother painted by the expatriate Henry O. Tanner while visiting from Paris." "Portraits of a People features color reproductions of more than 100 important portraits in various media, drawn from museum and historical collections across the United States. The biographies of individual sitters, artists, or histories of the works are discussed in short texts. Essays consider various issues of how the self was fashioned pictorially and the development of unique identities through the formal portraiture of freeborn and previously enslaved African American artists and sitters."--Jacket
Ruth Duckworth : Modernist sculptor by Jo Lauria( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a career spanning more than six decades, Ruth Duckworth has created an immense and important body of work. Her ambition, intensity, and defiance of convention have governed her personal journey - fleeing from Nazi Germany to England at the outset of World War II, and settling in the United States in the mid-1960s - as well as her prodigious artistic output. Although Duckworth started out sculpting in stone, and has created both intimate and large-scale artworks in bronze and other materials, she has since the early 1960s predominantly worked in clay. It is for her work in this medium that she is recognized as one of the twentieth century's most innovative and significant sculptors. A true alchemist of abstraction, Duckworth has consistently produced barrier-bending art that is elegant yet at the same time buoyant, visionary works of seductive refinement, austere power, and radiant immediacy that masterfully continue the aesthetics of modernism into the twenty-first-century." "This volume, which accompanies a major touring exhibition provides a long-overdue assessment of Duckworth's significance. It reveals the conceptual and iconographic foundations that Duckworth's work shares with other important modernist sculptors."--Jacket
