Discovered lands, invented pasts : transforming visions of the American West by Jules David Prown( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A common theme of western American art--from the depictions of Indians by early explorers to the monumental landscapes of Albert Bierstadt to the vibrant images of Georgia O'Keeffe--is the transformation of the land through European-American exploration and resettlement. In this handsome book, leading authorities look at western American art of the past three centuries, reevaluating it from the perspectives of history, art history, and American studies." "Jules David Prown begins the book by discussing the need for interdisciplinary approaches to broaden the study of western American art. Nancy K. Anderson then calls for a reconsideration of western art as art rather than documentation and for the adoption of new methods to probe its aesthetic, historical, political, and cultural complexities. William Cronon explores what an environmental historian might learn from American landscape art, concluding that each image must be read as a multilayered view intertwining past, present, and future within a larger context of progress and expansionism. Examining representations of American Indians, Brian W. Dippie finds that early works pictured Indians caught up in a process of dramatic change while later artists showed them frozen outside of time; when the frontier ended, western art made nostalgia its defining characteristic. Martha A. Sandweiss argues that the ways in which views of the American west and its peoples reached nineteenth-century audiences--through large edition prints, book illustrations, or theatrical exhibitions--significantly affected both the images and the meanings attached to them. Susan Prendergast Schoelwer challenges popular perceptions of the frontier as a womanless domain, discovering abundant pictures of Native American women in the art of the western fur trade. Howard R. Lamar concludes by discussing the changing perceptions of western artists and inhabitants of their region's landscape in the twentieth century."

Eva Hesse : a retrospective by Eva Hesse( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eva Hesse (1936-1970) has long been recognized by artists and critics as a sculptor of exceptional talent and prodigious influence. The public has rarely seen her work, however, because its fragility has made it difficult to exhibit. This richly illustrated and critically interpretive book enables a wide audience to appreciate the magnitude of her achievement and the legacy of her art. Hesse was an expressionist in an age of minimalism. Against the predominantly impersonal visual modes of the sixties, she insisted on the subjective qualities of her art. She opened up new frontiers in sculpture--in form, content, and material--and helped to change the way artists, critics, and viewers look at art. Hesse's career also coincided with the incubation period of modern feminism, and her art stands as a courageous and complex effort to articulate a female identity. The book includes essays by five noted authorities: Linda Norden discusses Hesse's early career in New York following her years as a student of Josef Albers; Maria Kreutzer writes on Hesse's work in Germany in the mid-sixties, when she moved from two to three dimensions; Robert Storr places Hesse in relation to the central American artistic concerns of the 1960s, focusing on her links to such artists as Jasper Johns, Sol LeWitt, and Claes Oldenburg; Anna Chave analyzes Hesse's mature work in light of contemporary feminist theory on authorship and subjectivity; and Maurice Berger examines Hesse's radical and personal approach to the sculptural object following her rejection of painting. In addition, Helen Cooper draws on the artist's extensive diaries, notebooks, and correspondence for a chronology detailed as much as possible in Hesse's own words. This beautiful book, which brings together Hesse's most important sculptures, reliefs, and her rarely seen drawings and early paintings, is the catalogue for an exhibition of Hesse's work that opens at the Yale University Art Gallery in April 1992 and travels to the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C
John Trumbull : the hand and spirit of a painter by Helen A Cooper( Book )

8 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Trumbull's paintings of the key events of the revolutionary war are among the most familiar and revered images in American art. In 1832 Trumbull gave to Yale College his most important history paintings and portraits. This gift established the Yale University Art Gallery, making it the first college art museum in the Western hemisphere. In celebration of this event, the Gallery has mounted the first major exhibition of Trumbull's work. The fully illustrated catalogue that accompanies the exhibition opens with a biography of Trumbull as a history painter, Oswaldo Rodriguez Roque on the artist's conflicting attitudes toward portrait painting, Patricia Mullan Burnham on the religious subjects, Bryon Wolf on the landscapes, Martin Price on the literary themes, and Egon Verheyen on the Capitol Rotunda commissions. The essays are followed by extensive catalogue entries on 170 paintings and drawings"--Publisher's description
Thomas Eakins : the rowing pictures by Helen A Cooper( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1870s, rowing because a tremendously popular sport in the United States. An enthusiastic rower, the young Philadelphia-born Thomas Eakins painted, sketched, and drew an extraordinary series of rowing pictures that were the most ambitious project of his early career. He brought to the theme his personal experiences as an avid amateur rower on his beloved Schuylkill River, and a scientific understanding of the physical effort involved. His 24 rowing works, which include some of the most celebrated and recognized images in the history of American art, are brought together and examined as a group for the first time in this beautiful book. They shed light on the artist's creative process and subsequent achievements as well as on social, cultural, and artistic concerns central to nineteenth-century audiences. Helen A. Cooper, along with essayists Martin A. Berger, Christina Currie, and Amy B. Werbel discuss various aspects of Eakins' rowing series, explaining his affection for the sport, his adoption of the images of popular culture into the realm of fine art, his commitment to novel, "modern" subjects, his preoccupation with perspective and measurement, and his belief that the most profound artistic truths were best expressed through the human figure - particularly the male figure. Just as sculling is dependent upon precision, practice and unwavering dedication, so the paintings were constructed from scrupulous observation of details and intense preparation. In the less than four years in which the rowing pictures were created, Eakins moved subtly from the analytic and descriptive toward the more intuitive and suggestive

The Société anonyme : modernism for America by Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated book highlights the unique history of the Societe Anonyme, Inc., an organization founded in 1920 by the artists Katherine S. Dreier (1877-1952), Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), and Man Ray (1890-1976). As America's first "experimental museum" for modern art, the Societe Anonyme provided a means for artists, rather than historians, to chronicle the rise of modernism. Led by Dreier and Duchamp, the group presented to the public a variety of innovative programs, publications, and exhibitions and eventually assembled a collection of more than one thousand artworks." "With new archival information, including personal correspondence between Dreier and the artists whose work she assembled, a host of previously unpublished images, and essays by leading scholars, this book is essential to our understanding of the reception and interpretation of modernism in America."--Jacket
Livable modernism : interior decorating and design during the Great Depression by Kristina Wilson( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the years of the Great Depression in America, modernist designers developed products and lifestyle concepts intended for middle-class, not elite, consumers. In this fascinating book, [the author] coins the term 'livable modernism' to describe this school of design. Livable modernism combined international style functional efficiency and sophistication with a respect for American consumers' desires for physical and psychological comfort, paving the way for the work of Charles and Ray Eames and other post-World War II designers. [The author] offers a new view of modernist furnishings marketed for middle-class living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms of the 1930s, and provides groundbreaking analyses of many of the most popular items, including George Sakier's stemware for the Fostoria Glass Company, Russel Wrights' American modern furniture for Macy's, and Gilbert Rohde's clocks for the Herman Miller Clock Company. As the first study of the marketing of modern design during the Depression years, [this book] features an extensive array of vintage advertisements from such magazines as 'Better Homes and Gardens', 'House Beautiful', 'Ladies' Home Journal', and the 'Saturday Evening Post'. [The author] discusses the relation of modernism to the cultural and economic climate of the Depression and examines the sophisticated marketing strategies of the movement that coincided with a period of tremendous growth for print magazines and the advertising industry. Filled with fresh insights into a fascinating period in American modern design, this book provides an important new look at these designers' and design companies' philosophies, innovations, and influence that until now have been under-appreciated"--Bookjacket

Love and loss : American portrait and mourning miniatures by Robin Jaffee Frank( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most often, portrait miniatures were painted in watercolor on thin disks of ivory. They were sometimes worn as jewelry, sometimes framed to be viewed privately. Many were painted by specialists, although renowned easel artists - including Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, and Charles Willson Peale - also created them to commemorate births, engagements, marriages, deaths, and other joinings or separations. The book traces the development of this exquisite art form, revealing the close ties between the history of the miniature and the history of American private life."--Jacket

Making it new : the art and style of Sara and Gerald Murphy( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paris in the 1920s - art, literature, the Lost Generation. The glitterati who inhabited this legendary world - F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Cole Porter, Man Ray, Dorothy Parker, and a host of others - were members of an intimate circle centered around Sara and Gerald Murphy. The Murphys, who endeavored to make art of their own lives, embodied a predominant theme of the 1920s: life as one would like it to be versus life as it is." "Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy is a collection of essays examining through images and text the Murphys' influence on a remarkable constellation of artists. It accompanies an exhibition organized by the Williams College Museum of Art and examines, from multiple points of view, the Murphys' artistically adventurous way of life and their ability to confer distinction on everything, from the inconsequential to the grand. The book also explains how this period of enchantment ended and explores Gerald Murphy's abbreviated career as a painter, his artistic legacy, and the complex nature of his motivation and vision."--Jacket
