Art Nouveau Bing : Paris style 1900 by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 1,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The literature on Art Nouveau is extensive but little mention has been made of the man who created the name, Siegfried Bing, a leading figure in fin de siecle decorative arts and a moving force in the style that swept through Western Europe and the United States. Weisberg, along with SITES, has produced a visually delightful, detailed tribute to this elusive but effective artist-entrepreneur. The catalog traces Bing's life, involvement in Japanese arts, the creation of the gallery "L'Art Nouveau" and the atelier that flourished under his supervision. It was a union of art and industry aimed at design reform with an international style and no distinction between major or minor, fine or applied arts. Useful for art libraries." -- Metropolitan Museum Library staff
King Herod's dream : Caesarea on the sea by Kenneth G Holum( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caesarea is one of the richest archaeological sites in Israel. Located on the Mediterranean coast, this urban center was a port of great vitality that survived until the thirteenth century. Recently archaeologists both on land and underwater have discovered many of the secrets of Caesarea, enabling them to reconstruct what the city was like and the manner of life therein. This profusely illustrated volume offers the results of the archaeologists' findings, describing their methods and adventures as well

African-American artists, 1880-1987 : selections from the Evans-Tibbs Collection by Guy C McElroy( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three essays in this companion volume to a traveling exhibition trace the artistic and political forces shaping African-American art of the last century. McElroy, guest curator at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., explores the years 1880-1920; however, his dry, formalistic analyses of various works do not address what their makers might have had in common aside from race. Fortunately, Powell, program director for the Washington D.C. Project for the Arts, and Patton, chief curator of Harlem's Studio Museum, who respectively cover the periods 1920-1950 and 1950-1987, relate the pieces in the collection to one another, placing them in a socio-historical context. Color reproductions of 75 works are well integrated and commendably diverse, and include art by Elizabeth Catlett, whose subjects address societal inequities, and by Charles Alston, who in the 1930s led the influential Harlem Art Workshop and who was equally adept at figurative and abstract representation. Prints, etchings such as those of Henry O. Tanner, whose works are marked by religious themes, and the folk art of Bill Traylor, who at 85 began to draw on cardboard scraps, complement the oil paintings depicted here." -- Publishers Weekly

Close observation : selected oil sketches by Frederick E. Church from the collections of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Design by Frederic Edwin Church( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederic E. Church is increasingly recognized today as the leading painter of the Hudson River School -- the group of optimistic, realistic landscape painters who flourished during the mid-nineteenth century (1840-1875). He is a pivotal figure, and one who influenced his contemporaries greatly. Yet even Church is known almost solely from his finished oil paintings, which are large, detailed, and panoramic, with no hint of the artist's hand visible. This book brings, for the first time, scholarly attention and the eye of the connoisseur to Church's best oil sketches (112 are discussed and illustrated). In these works, the artist is seen working directly from nature, en plein air, with great speed and emotion. The sketches are astonishingly detailed, yet fresh and sensuous in execution. The book analyzes Church's stylistic progression, his use of sketches in the creation of finished studio paintings, and the formation and decline of his own vision (and that of the Hudson River School itself) as reflected in the changing style and use of the oil sketch. The book is divided into sections according to Church's major travels and subjects: the trips to South America, 1853 and 1857; Niagara; the voyage to the north to see icebergs; the trip to Jamaica, 1865; and his year-and-a-half-long journey to Europe and the Near East, starting in the autumn of 1867. The last years of his life Church spent the winters in Mexico and the summers at "Olana" -- center of the earth -- the house he designed and built in the fotthills of the Catskills. - Jacket flap

Visionary drawings of architecture and planning : 20th century through the 1960s : developed for travel and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) by George R Collins( Book )

10 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the catalog for a 1979 exhibition at New York's Drawing Center developed for travel and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). It presents a wide range of illustrations notable for their style and subject-personal glimpses of theory, speculation, and fantasy of what should or might be the future of our built environment. Collins has written an introduction which defines visionary architecture and which comments on the historical position of those represented in the exhibit. Thirty-eight designers are represented by a brief biography followed by a few annotated examples of the individual's work. The exhibition--a striking example of internationalism--is reduced by the catalog to a hurried look at individuals and their creativity which should, however, encourage readers into further exploration of this field
