The art of Thomas Gainsborough : "a little business for the eye" by Michael Rosenthal ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Michael Rosenthal provides a lively account of Gainsborough's varied life and diverse artworks. Rosenthal also examines for the first time the artist's oeuvre as a whole and how the trajectory of his career reflected the problems, dilemmas and situations that were common to other painters of his time. This book sets Gainsborough's art within its social and cultural contexts, shedding new light on the art worlds of London and the English provinces and on the ways in which Gainsborough's painting would have been seen and understood by his contemporaries." "The book begins by charting the geography and professional tactics of a career that took Gainsbourgh from London to Suffolk, Bath and eventually back to London. Rosenthal looks at such wide-ranging topics as how artists manipulated the press, the issue of likeness in portraiture, how rivalries between painters were handled in public and private, and the pressures of the public exhibition. The second part of the book explores the manifestations of Gainsborugh's aesthetic in portraiture, landscape painting and paintings of sensibility. Rosenthal concludes with a discussion of the problem of defining a role and proper form for the fine arts at a time of rapid social change and innovation."--BOOK JACKET

James McNeill Whistler : drawings, pastels, and watercolours : a catalogue raisonné by Margaret F MacDonald ( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Painter, etcher, draughtsman, lithographer, watercolourist, and author of critical essays and aphorisms, James McNeill Whistler had a tremendous influence on the art and aesthetics of his era. Born in Massachusetts in 1834, he settled in London when he was twenty-five years old and for the next four decades produced hundreds of highly acclaimed (and sometimes highly criticised) works. His prodigious output and proficiency, along with his eccentricities, polemics, and arguments with critics, won him wide recognition. This catalogue raisonne of Whistler's drawings, pastels and watercolours makes available many of his works that have never before been exhibited or published and vividly demonstrates the wide range of his art. His drawings reveal the everyday working out of his ideas and note the world as it passed by Whistler with vigour and humour. The pastels include sensitive portraits, vigorous studies of models in the studio, and detailed views of Venetian palaces. The watercolours, perhaps his finest works, catch the subtle colours of northern skies and ever-changing seascapes

The King's pictures : the formation and dispersal of the collections of Charles I and his courtiers by Francis Haskell ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The greatest paintings in today's most famous museums were once part of a fluid exchange determined by volatile political fortunes. In the first half of the 17th century, masterpieces by Titian, Raphael, and Leonardo, among others, were the objects of fervent pursuit by art connoisseurs. Francis Haskell traces the fate of collections extracted from Italy, Spain, and France by King Charles I and his circle, which, after a brief stay in Britain, were largely dispersed after the Civil War to princely galleries across the Continent. From vivid case studies of individual collectors, advisers, and artists, and acute analysis of personality and motive, Haskell challenges ideas about this episode in British cultural life and traces some of the factors that forever changed the artistic map of Europe".
