Noble dreams, wicked pleasures : orientalism in America, 1870-1930 by Holly Edwards ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 863 libraries worldwide
Noble Dreams, Wicked Pleasures explores complex American attitudes toward the Near East--as revealed in collected paintings, interior design, and multiple vernacular forms--at the formative moment of industrialization and the crystallization of a truly mass culture. Published to coincide with the multimedia exhibition that opens at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and travels to the Walters Art Gallery and the Mint Museum of Art, this catalogue considers how urban, mercantile, Protestant America represented the Islamic world of the Middle East and North Africa in ways that say more about itself than the foreign culture. This gorgeously illustrated volume first looks at the use of Orientalist stereotypes by some of the country's most important high art painters of the nineteenth century: Frederic Edwin Church's treatment of the exotic terrain through a lens of deep religiosity; a more cosmopolitan reading of the harem girl by John Singer Sargent; the perfumed alternative to industrial capitalism conjured in the landscapes and market scenes of Samuel Colman and Louis Comfort Tiffany; and interpretations of the Orient as emancipatory by Ella Pell, the only major woman Orientalist. The book next traces the popularization of Orientalism in the decorative arts (including a few treasures from Olana, Church's Moorish-style home on the Hudson), on Broadway, and in Hollywood, as well as through advertising that linked consumer products with visual suggestions of exotic sexuality and through cultural objects, such as the Shriners' fez.
Impression : painting quickly in France, 1860-1890 by Richard R Brettell ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 839 libraries worldwide
The "point" of Impressionist art was to capture the fleeting moment, the transient effect of a certain place, person or time. Impressionist artists worked on site with speed and directness, hoping to distinguish their works with a new freshness, immediacy, and truthfulness. Yet the paintings they exhibited were in fact almost always completed in the studio later. This beautifully illustrated book investigates for the first time works that might truly be called Impressions--paintings that appear to be rapid transcriptions of shifting subjects but were nonetheless considered finished by their makers. Renowned Impressionist scholar Richard R. Brettell identifies and discusses Impressions by some of the best-known artists of the period, including Manet, Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Morisot, Degas, Pissarro, and Caillebotte. The book surveys the various practices of individual artists in the making, signing, exhibiting, and selling of Impressions. Brettell discusses the pictorial theories behind the paintings, the sales strategies for them, and the various forms they took, including works completed in one sitting, "apparent" Impressions, and repeated Impressions. In a concluding chapter, the author considers a small group of works by Vincent van Gogh, who painted with an almost fanatical rapidity and was the only major post-Impressionist painter to push the aesthetic of the Impression even further.
The unknown Monet : pastels and drawings by James A Ganz ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 824 libraries worldwide
"Claude Monet (1840-1926) is one of the best-known and most beloved painters in the history of art, with myriad publications and exhibitions devoted to his oeuvre. And yet there remains a previously undiscovered aspect of his career: his surprisingly significant role as a draftsman. This book is the first to focus on Monet's pastels, drawings, and sketchbooks, offering a new interpretation of the artist's life and work." "Citing recently discovered, unpublished documents that overturn the accepted image of the artist, The Unknown Monet reveals an extensive group of graphic works created over the course of the artist's career, many of which are unknown to the general public and to scholars: beautiful pastels, stunning black-chalk drawings, and fascinating sketchbooks, which include pencil studies that relate to many of his paintings. The book also shows how Monet exploited the print media to promote his art." "The most important publication on Monet to appear in a generation, this volume is essential to anyone interested in his work, Impressionism, and nineteenth-century French culture."--BOOK JACKET.
Like breath on glass : Whistler, Inness, and the art of painting softly ( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 755 libraries worldwide
Through an innovative manner of handling paint, a group of American artists around 1900 created deceptively simple canvases that convey images of shimmering transcience, visions suggested rather than delineated. Focusing on this singular aesthetic characteristic - softness - this book explores this painterly phenomenon.

Turner : the late seascapes by James Hamilton ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 592 libraries worldwide
"The English romantic painter J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851) is renowned for his sublime and dramatic landscapes and seascapes. The sea held a particular fascination for the artist, exemplified not only by the subject matter of many of his paintings but also by his own collection of ship models and personal experiences as an amateur sailor. This handsome book - written by Turner expert James Hamilton and published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition organized by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and Manchester City Galleries - focuses primarily on the artist's spectacular seascapes dating from the 1840s, the last decade of his illustrious career." "Turner: The Late Seascapes provides new and provocative insights into these powerful works, relating them to the artist's interest in poetry and drama as well as his curiousity about science, optics, and photography. Turner's extensive travels - which clearly fed his imagination and inspired his choice of subject matter - are explored in depth, as is the relationship between Turner's paintings and seventeenth-century Dutch precedents. Hamilton also examines the important role of the pendant in Turner's late art, arguing that his paired works have intentional associative narrative, stylistic, and chromatic meanings. In addition, the author traces the evolution of Turner's famous Whaling series, offering a new source for it, and examines Turner's captain Elisha Morgan and the English photographer John Mayall, both of which have been previously overlooked in the literature on the artist." "Including more than 90 examples of Turner's dramatic and lively marine pictures - 70 of which are reproduced in full color - this elegant book sheds fascinating new light on one of the world's most beloved artists."--BOOK JACKET.

Overcoming all obstacles : the women of the Académie Julian ( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 556 libraries worldwide
"Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Academie Julian is the first book to examine late nineteenth-century Paris's most famous training ground for the leading women artists of the period. The Academie Julian was founded in Paris in 1868, initially to prepare students for entry to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the nineteenth century's preeminent art school. Because women could not study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts until 1897, Julian itself became an international equivalent for many of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century's most important women artists." "Not only does Overcoming All Obstacles introduce the reader to many works by women artists - both famous and lesser known - but the essays offer a cultural and historical context in which to appreciate their art."--BOOK JACKET.

Picasso looks at Degas by Elizabeth Cowling ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 451 libraries worldwide
This volume presents documented instances of Spanish painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso's (1881-1973) direct responses to French painter and sculptor Edgar Degas's (1834-1917) works, as well as more conceptual and challenging affinities between their individual bodies of work. Illustrated essays explore the artists' parallel interests in modern urban life, ballet dancers, activities such as bathing and combing the hair, photography, and the challenges of sculpture. The book also provides the first extended analysis of Picasso's engagement with Degas's art in his final years, when he acquired several of the French artist's brothel monotypes and reworked some of them in his own prints.
Renoir and Algeria by Roger Benjamin ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 398 libraries worldwide
Renoir made two journeys to Algeria, in 1881 & 1882. He was the only Impressionist to paint Orientalist themes, but this aspect of his work has been little studied. This book places Renoir in the unfamiliar context of the French Orientalist tradition.
