Most widely held works by William C Agee
Arthur Dove : a retrospective by Debra Bricker Balken( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The American artist Arthur Dove (1880-1946), purportedly the first artist to have produced an abstract painting, has always occupied a central place in writings on early American modernism. This book accompanies the first major exhibition on Dove since 1974. The exhibition, organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art and The Phillips Collection, covers the period from 1908, the year after Dove took up painting, through 1946, the year of his death. It is comprised of approximately eighty paintings, collages, pastels, and charcoal drawings."--Jacket

Fairfield Porter : a catalogue raisonné of the paintings, watercolors, and pastels by Joan Ludman( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fairfield Porter (1907-1975) is one of the great American artists of the postwar period. His work is widely loved for its lyricism and apparently realist subject matter: still lifes, studio and other interiors, landscapes in Southampton, N.Y., and Great Spruce Head Island in Penobscot Bay, Maine, and portraits - including his many friends among the leading poets and artists of the New York School. Yet he was as concerned with color, light, paint handling, and composition as the Abstract Expressionists. The "natural" look of his paintings was achieved after a lifetime spent at his craft. In line with a long American tradition, Porter's art insists on the concrete and the specific rather than on the European heritage of the ideal and the general." "This project documents every known painting by Porter, more than 1,300 in all, dating from 1924 to 1975. Three essays by leading authorities place the work in the context of Porter's biography and ideology: "The Thought behind the Painting" by Rackstraw Downes; "An American Painter 'Dense with Experience'" by William C. Agee; and "A Life in Art" by John T. Spike. This definitive reference also includes a Chronology, Selected Bibliography, list of Museum and Corporate Collections, and Index."--Jacket
Coming of age : American art, 1850s to 1950s by William C Agee( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the 1850s to the 1950s, American art and culture progressed from provincial status to international prominence, and American art transitioned from figurative depictions of the particular to abstract interpretation of universal ideals. This book chronicles this complex century of maturation through a selection of paintings from the collection of the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover Massachusetts."--BOOK JACKET
Masterpieces of American modernism : from the Vilcek Collection by William C Agee( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Modernism, referring to the period dating roughly from the late 19th century to 1970, is regarded as a crucial moment in the history and development of American art. Although modernist artists adopted a wide range of styles, they were linked by a desire to interpret a rapidly changing society and to cast aside the conventions of representational art. Some, such as Stuart Davis and Joseph Stella, responded to consumerism, urbanism, and industrial technology; others, such as Arthur Dove and Georgia O'Keeffe, found inspiration in nature and the Native American culture of the Southwest. This magnificent new book presents the works of the Vilcek Collection, an unparalleled private collection of American modernist paintings, drawings, and sculpture."--Jacket
