Arthur Dove : a retrospective by Debra Bricker Balken( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 740 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

Masterpieces of American modernism : from the Vilcek Collection by William C Agee( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 530 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
Coming of age : American art, 1850s to 1950s by William C Agee( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 499 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."--Jacket
Fairfield Porter : a catalogue raisonné of the paintings, watercolors, and pastels by Joan Ludman( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 480 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

4 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important American artists of the 20th century, Donald Judd (1928-1994) pioneered the use of industrial materials and fabrication in serial forms to redefine the relationships between artist, art object, viewer, and space, and usher in the minimalist style. Focusing entirely on Judd's multicoloured works, this work features essays by leading scholars that illuminate this body of work and examine its relationship to his oeuvre as a whole

Modern art in America 1908-68 by William C Agee( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of American artists in the history of modern art is well-known and well-documented, from Jackson Pollock to Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol. However, the work of such artists did not spontaneously appear after World War II, nor was it simply transplanted from Europe. There is a longer, subtler history of the development of modernism in relation to American artists, as well as teachers, patrons and collectors, which can be traced through the first half of the twentieth century. William C. Agee's analysis includes artists working in the first half of the century, such as Arthur Dove, Stuart Davis, Charles Demuth, Marsden Hartley, Georgia O'Keeffe, and John Marin, as well as a discussion of the continuity between this period and the artists who went on to become celebrated internationally, such as Arshile Gorky, Edward Hopper, Helen Frankenthaler, Willem de Kooning, Morris Louis, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Donald Judd. Agee also integrates the work of certain European artists who became central to modern American art. Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Marcel Duchamp and Piet Mondrian as well as Josef Albers and Hans Hofmann became influential teachers (and eventually American citizens), impacting strongly on the likes of Stuart Davis and many others, who have not necessarily been compared or connected to the European art canon previously. As a radical re-evaluation of art history from the early twentieth century to the late 1960s, this brilliant new account of American modernism is a must-read for students and scholars of art as well as all those interested in modernism and its wider cultural history--Google books
