Master paintings from the Phillips Collection by Phillips Collection( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Phillips Collection, America's first museum of modern art, was founded in 1921 by Duncan Phillips (1886-1966), a Washington DC collector who played a vital role in introducing America to contemporary art. Unusually for his time, Phillips saw American artists as fully equal to their European counterparts, often hanging their works side by side. Moreover, Phillips chose to buy and exhibit works according to stylistic continuities and affinities, reflecting the visual connections between various artistic expressions, past and present. Master Paintings from The Phillips Collection highlights 108 masterworks from the Phillips's permanent collection and offers insight into the creation of one of the greatest private collections of modern art in the world. -- Book Description

John Walker : changing light : March 13-April 26, 2003 by John Walker( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In John Walker's current exhibit titled Changing Light, the artist turns his compass point in an unexpected direction to explore an American theme, the coast of Maine. Yet again Walker provides us with an experience that invokes a conjunction between nature and our collective past. But gone are the charged iconographical and autobiographical motifs, and in their place are deep vistas filled instead with a hushed emptiness. Originally from Great Britain, Walker has previously explored the landscapes of Australia and Vermont. Here in the U.S. he is both a native and a visitor, and one is tempted to see these works within a traditional American genre. But they are thoroughly modernist, and their essential elements are those of a minimalist planar ground set against an horizon and containing either sun or moon. Painted with ease and confidence, they are full of repose and the pleasure of looking across expanses of land. Often their setting is dusk, or the brief time just before dawn. Each painting is set on the edge of the seashore, and their reflective surfaces shimmer with the layering of transparent films of paint, handled with a deftness and an utter lightness of touch. Another element present in nearly every painting is a tidal pool, the relational place of which shifts from painting to painting, and whose presence becomes more charged with significance as this series progresses. Tidal pools are residues of water the sea has left behind when the tide goes out. Though separated from the immensity of the whole, they nevertheless harbor the ocean's procreative elements, which cling to their lifeline and wait until the tide returns. They thus become symbolic centers of loss and regeneration. These paintings invoke strong aural and tactile elements; one can hear the insistent sound of the water and feel the muddy sand. In paintings titled "Clammer's Marks, John's Bay," Walker brings in new elements: hand drawn and horizontal bars and pool-like reflections echoed by rounded script scrawled latterly across the painted surface. Here color crescendos to thick muddy scumbled reds and ultra-marine blues. It is at these moments that Walker implies a history of memory from Europe, a history brought to the American shore and harkening back to its continent of origin. Previous works of Walker's have dealt with historical events directly, such as World War I. In the present work, his concern is rather to change a tradition: to reevaluate classical landscape painting without using the conventions of the picturesque. As a student of his, I once heard him say: "Cut an Englishman open and you'll find a landscape." Why this is more true of an Englishman than of an American or a Frenchman is more than I can say. Walker has, however, broken away from the nineteenth-century idea of the picturesque and works here with minimally pictorial elements: the horizon, the sun or moon, and tidal pool motifs. He treats them in such a way that their emptiness opens up the possibility of renewal."--John Walker by Rachel Youens

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American art has been essential to 'The Phillips Collection' since its founding by Duncan Phillips in 1921. Phillips acquired the work of living American artists when it was unpopular to do so and promoted diversity, as seen in works by self-taught artists, artists of colour, and naturalised Americans, resulting in a rich assembly of independent-minded artists. The Phillips Collection's superb collection of American art, acquired over half a century, is presented here for the first time in a comprehensive overview, featuring 160 works from heroes of the late 19th century - such as William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer, who set the course for modern art in America - to abstract expressionists Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko, whose efforts to create a new visual language following the Second World War brought a new global significance to American art, "--Publisher's description
