Most widely held works by Mary Anne Stevens
Monet in the 20th century by Claude Monet( Book )

24 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the beginning of the twentieth century, Claude Monet was a figure of national importance in France - the patriarch of impressionism and the country's foremost landscape painter. This richly illustrated book examines for the first time the body of work that Monet completed from 1900 until his death in 1926, a period during which he was enormously productive, increasingly wealthy, and ever more venerated

Alfred Sisley by Alfred Sisley( Book )

21 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has never before been a major retrospective exhibition in Europe or America of Sisley's work, and there have been few serious publications. He remains therefore the least known of the Major Impressionists. Although a prolific artist, the uneven quality of his output has made it difficult to establish his particular place within the history of Impressionism. An important international exhibition (of which this is the catalogue) has been organised by the Royal Academy in London, the Musee d'Orsay in Paris and The Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore. By concentrating on only the highest quality pictures from throughout Sisley's career, his contribution to the forging of Impressionism in the 1860s, his mastery of style in the 1870s and his resolution of the problems of technique in the 1880s are all surveyed and illustrated. In addition, his individual exploration of the idea of serial painting in the 1890s is examined. The influence of earlier painters, both French and English, as well as of his contemporaries, is studied in Christopher Lloyd's essay on Sisley's stylistic development. Caroline Durand-Ruel Godfroy, great-granddaughter of the dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, discusses the relationship between the artist and his dealer. The impact of Impressionism in America and the history of early exhibitions and collectors there have been researched by William Johnston, who publishes his findings. Written by an international team of scholars, this book is a richly illustrated complement to the exhibition, exploring all its themes in detail

24 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alfred Sisley : impressionist master by Mary Anne Stevens( Book )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Paris to British parents, Alfred Sisley (1839{u2013}1899) abandoned his business studies early on in order to pursue training as a landscape artist and has become admired for his characteristic subtlety and highly restrained approach to painting. This beautiful publication offers an overdue reevaluation of Sisley, one of Impressionism's most distinctive yet undervalued figures. An artist of unparalleled sensitivity, Sisley maintained a strong commitment to creating his works outdoors, skillfully recording the nuances within the landscapes of northern France and rendering the effects of the changing light and weather patterns along specific areas of the river Seine in a truly remarkable fashion. Exploring the artist's relationship to his fellow Impressionists as well as to his influences, including J.M.W. Turner, 17th-century Dutch art, and Japanese prints, and showcasing rarely seen privately owned works, this volume celebrates Sisley's unique virtuosity as an observer of the natural world"

Living bridges : the inhabited bridge, past, present and future by Peter Murray( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klappentext: In 1831 Old London Bridge was demolished following the construction of Sir John Rennie's replacement structure. Begun in 1176, it was the first stone bridge to have been erected across the Thames and until 1763 it had boasted a famous parade of shops and houses on either side of a narrow thoroughfare. Throughout Europe whole communities were supported by such habitable bridges. The last bridge of this type to be built in Britain was Pulteney Bridge constructed in Bath in 1773. This work examines the contribution that habitable bridges have made to city life from the Middle Ages to the present day. The history and construction of major inhabited bridges in Europe, the Middle East and America are discussed in detail. In Europe these include Old London Bridge, the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Venice's Rialto Bridge and the Pont de Notre Dame in Paris. One section of the book is devoted to presenting the seven shortlisted entries in a competition to design a habitable bridge for London, spanning the Thames from Temple Gardens on the North Bank to the area in front of London Weekend Television building in the south. Among the entries is one by Daniel Libeakind, originator of the "boiler house" proposal for the extension to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Four pages are accorded to the winning entry in the competition

Impressionism abroad : Boston and French Painting( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston possesses one of the world's finest collections of nineteenth-century French and American art. This colourful book illustrates many of its highlights." "As she outlines the history of the collection, Erica Hirshler considers the taste in Boston for atmospheric landscapes which, by the late 1880s, had led young Boston painters to Monet's door. Their willingness to embrace Impressionism helped to popularise this style of painting throughout the United States." "All the high points of Boston's nineteenth-century collections are revealed here, with works by the leading French Impressionist painters and their American counterparts, such as Childe Hassam and Philip Hale."--Jacket

Hammershøi and Europe by Kasper Monrad( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and German and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive study of the great Danish painter, this monograph places Hammershøi within the context of his European contemporaries. This generously illustrated volume examines Hammershøi's work as a whole and in relation to the artists of his generation. Hammershøi's enigmatic paintings, with their rich and muted palettes, have always enjoyed enormous popularity in Scandinavia, and recently his work has received renewed attention across the globe. Thematically arranged, this volume includes beautiful reproductions and essays that focus on Hammershøi's isolated private life and travels; his time in London and Germany; and comparisons between him and such notable painters as Seurat, Gauguin, and Whistler. Fans of this remarkable painter, and anyone interested in modern art, will enjoy this celebration of Hammershøi as a part of the pantheon of great European painters."--Publisher's website
Jean-Etienne Liotard, 1702-1789 by Jean-Etienne Liotard( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean-Etienne Liotard was renowned during the eighteenth century for his exquisite portraits and works in pastel, not to mention his outlandish Oriental garb. He painted some of the most significant rulers and aristocrats of Europe, including several members of the British royal family. A peripatetic artist who worked in the Levant as well as major European capitals, Liotard was born in Geneva and studied in Paris before travelling to Italy and then on to Constantinople in the train of British aristocratic Grand Tourists. There he painted the local residents as well as the British community, and adopted the eccentric style of dress that, when he later visited London, caused him to become known as 'The Turk'. This volume illuminates the career of this remarkable but now little-known artist, showcasing a variety of his extraordinary works, including portraits, drawings and enamels
