Art in Rome in the eighteenth century by Edgar Peters Bowron( Book )

23 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caught between the Theatricality of the Baroque and the acute sensibility of Romanticism, art in Rome in the eighteenth century has long been a neglected area of study." "The grand scale and spectacular diversity of the period are comprehensively captured for the first time in this definitive history of the period, produced to accompany a major U.S. exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and documenting the work of over 150 artists. With over 450 illustrations, and texts by an outstanding array of experts from around the world, Art in Rome in the Eighteenth Century provides a massively authoritative survey of a fascinating era."--Jacket

"Best in Show is the most up-to-date, comprehensive survey of the dog as shown in painting, sculpture, works on paper, and photography from the end of the sixteenth century to today. This book features more than sixty works by such artists as Jacopo Bassano, Titian, Frans Snyders, George Stubbs, Thomas Gainsborough, Rosa Bonheur, Sir Edwin Landseer, Giacomo Balla, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Andrew Wyeth, and many more. Four essays by distinguished scholars discuss the dog in the context of the art of the sixteenth through the twenty-first centuries; examine the development and changes of breed over the years; and outline the results of scientific inquiry over the centuries regarding the nature of dogs."--Jacket

Pompeo Batoni : prince of painters in eighteenth-century Rome by Edgar Peters Bowron( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pompeo Batoni (1708-1787) was the most celebrated painter in Rome in his day. For nearly half a century he recorded the international travellers who visited the city on the Grand Tour, and these portraits remain among the most memorable artistic accomplishments of the period. His allegorical, religious, and mythological paintings were also highly prized by royal and aristocratic patrons and collectors in Britain and on the Continent." "This book, published in celebration of the tercentenary of Batoni's birth, offers a vivid appreciation of his work. More than 150 full-colour illustrations represent the finest examples of his paintings from public and private collections in Europe and the United States. Some of these works are newly discovered, and others have never before been on public display. The illuminating text by Edgar Peters Bowron and Peter Bjorn Kerber explores the textual and visual sources for Baroni's history paintings, often undeservedly neglected in favour of his portraits; the origins and prototypes of his portrait style; the extraordinary patronage Batoni enjoyed as perhaps the only eighteenth-century painter to work for virtually all of the major European courts; his working methods and techniques; and his critical reception."--Jacket

Romantics, realists, revolutionaries : masterpieces of 19th-century German painting from the Museum of Fine Arts, Leipzig by Edgar Peters Bowron( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the vast number of Americans who claim German ancestry, there is neither a single major collection of 19th century German painting in the US nor have their been any exhibitions focusing on this subject in such detail. This volume redresses the balance. Although many will not be familiar with the great artists included in the volume, Caspar David Friedrich, Lovis Corinth, and Max Klinger are well-known names whose work forms the core of the permenant collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Leipzig, Germany. The 84 paintings reproduced in this sumptuously illustrated volume provide a rare opportunity to learn about these masters and their influence, especially between 1840 and 1880 when Germany had a profound impact on artistic life in America. - Publisher
