Berthe Morisot by Kathleen Adler( Book )

33 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The French nineteenth-century painter Berthe Morisot was held by her contemporaries to the the 'quintessential Impressionist'. She was an influential member of the Impressionist group, whose exhibitions she organized with her colleagues, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and Degas. This book shows how she was able to turn the limitaitons that her gender, background and education imposed on her as an artist to advantage. But, above all, it has been the quality of her paintings, drawings and graphic work that has ensured her continuing fame."--Back cover

The Body imaged : the human form and visual culture since the Renaissance by Kathleen Adler( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twelve essays in this book employ a wide range of visual material from varying periods in history to explore different attitudes to and representations of the human body. Each essay serves to analyse how visual representations of the body work metaphorically and systematically to define and reinforce beliefs and social practices. Many of the essays focus on a single painting, photograph, or other object to examine the wider implications of the image of the body and the body as image. An impressive range of methods and approaches is brought to bear, serving to demonstrate the intellectual vigour and breadth of the subject of the body in art, and the richness of the material with which it can be studied

Manet by Kathleen Adler( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his lifetime Édouard Manet (1832-83) insisted that his paintings were to be seen 'as a whole'. The major exhibitions of his work in Paris and New York in 1983 went some way towards achieving this aim, and the same intention lies behind Kathleen Adler's new monograph, for it is only when the paintings are juxtaposed that the artist's continuing preoccupations and explorations become apparent. There has been an upsurge of interest in Manet in recent years, and the recent scholarship which this has generated is duly appraised in Kathleen Adler's wide-ranging text. The major themes of Manet studies are fully discussed: his concern to express visually what Charles Baudelaire had termed 'the heroism of modern life'; his continual struggle for acceptance at the Paris Salons and his interest in other ways of exhibiting; his absorption and reinterpretation of the work of earlier artists; his experimentation with complex composition; and his attempts to engage the spectator as an active participant in his work. The views of critics of Manet's day and of our own are also considered and new propositions made for a better understanding of his intentions and of the measure of his success. The cleaning of many of the major paintings for the exhibitions was itself a major contribution to Manet studies, and the book's carefully selected colour plates allow readers to assess for themselves the tremendous impact paintings such as Olympia and A Bar at the Folies Bergére must have had on the visitors to the Paris Salons. They also demonstrate clearly why the artist's work continues to impress and challenge. -- Inside jacket flap
Alfred Sisley : impressionist master by Mary Anne Stevens( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Paris to British parents, Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) 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"--
Unknown Impressionists by Kathleen Adler( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and German and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The outstanding achievement of French Impressionism has traditionally been ascribed to a few acclaimed heroes. The lily-ponds of Monet, the boating-parties of Renoir, and the acute vision of Cezanne have all dominated popular attention. But in reality these artists shared their work and ideals with a constantly shifting group of painters. In the Impressionist group exhibitions the paintings of all the now better-known artists hung side-by-side with those of the 'unknown' Impressionists whose work is presented here in a first published collection. Different issues brought these men and women together. Caillebotte was an enigmatic figure, the wealthy patron of his contemporaries as well as a painter in his own right. He, Morisot, and Rouart took part in the organisation of the independent exhibitions without which Impressionism would never have been known. Guillaumin and Vignon were friends of Pissarro, painters who shared his vision of the misty and fertile landscape of the lie de France. Forain and de Nittis painted the Paris demimonde, and they offer a view of urban life firmly rooted in the nineteenth century. This is a visually sensational book, a source of imagery of the France and its capital that the Impressionists knew, and of the colourful characters who have left an enduring mark on Paris - painters like Lepic, the gentleman jockey and greyhound fancier, Zandomeneghi, the Italian army deserter, and Forain himself, who kept company with chorus girls and acrobats. The Paris of the Third Republic comes to life in Raffaelli's revealing pictures of the proletariat. As Raffaelli announced in 1885, 'from the cafe of neighbourhood tradesmen to the tavern where politicians hold forth! What discoveries are there to be made!'

Mary Cassatt : prints by Kathleen Adler( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a selection of the prints by American artist Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) from the collection of The National Gallery, Canada. As well as being a skillful painter, Cassatt was a gifted printmaker. Cassatt was a friend and collaborator of fellow Impressionist Edgar Degas, and, like him, she often depicted the day-to-day lives of women -- with seamstresses, confiding in companions, and caring for children. In the early 1890s, Cassatt was also inspired by Japanese woodblock prints and as a result, she infused many of her works with striking Asian forms and patterns that were refreshing and technically innovative

Pissarro in London by Kathleen Adler( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was in many ways the quintessential Impressionist painter, exhibiting at all eight Impressionist exhibitions, and retaining to the end of his life an interest in the direct observation of nature. But he was unique among the French artists who visited London in the latter pat of the nineteenth century in his choice of subject matter, repeatedly painting the city's suburbs - many of their features recognisable today - in preference to grander sights and monuments. This beautifully produced book features a charming group of paintings of London, made by Pissarro during his four visits to the city over the course of thirty years. Kathleen Adler's lively and accessible text traces the Pissarro family's history and relocation to London, while Pissarro's impressions of the city are revealed not only through the paintings, but by quotations from his many letters. His affection for London's modest suburban landscape, from Norwood to Stamford Brook, Bayswater to Kew, is evident in each of the works included here: everyday scenes of newly built brick houses, the rapidly expanding railway network, parks and gardens, and ordinary people at work and at leisure. Together they form a fascinating record of nineteenth-century London by an avant-garde artist
