Standing in the sun : a life of J.M.W. Turner by Anthony Bailey( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Mallord William Turner, Britain's greatest and most mysterious artist, was the son of a Convent Garden barber and a woman who died in Bethlehem Mental Hospital. During his lifetime (1775-1851), Turner achieved fame and fortune for a range of work encompassing seascape and landscape, immensely powerful oil paintings and intimate watercolors. His friend and colleague C. R. Leslie remembered him thus: "Turner was short and stout, and had a sturdy, sailor-like walk. He might be taken for the captain of a steamboat at first glance; but a second would find more in his face than belongs in any ordinary mind. There was the peculiar keenness of expression in his eye that is only seen in men of constant habits of observation."

Responses to Rembrandt by Anthony Bailey( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1968, a group of Dutch scholars known as the Rembrandt Research Project, feeling that the master's oeuvre was inflated, began to take Rembrandt to task. The group's members traveled around the world, subjecting Rembrandt to intense scrutiny: they x-rayed paintings; examined the rendering of lace, hands, and signatures; counted threads of warp and woof. Paintings long considered Rembrandts started to fall. Then, in 1984, one of the members of the Project suggested, in print, that The Polish Rider might be next. Perhaps this painting, "one of the world's masterpieces," wasn't a Rembrandt after all but the work of a lesser-known pupil, Willem Drost

Major André by Anthony Bailey( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A day in the last week of September 1780: a young English officer sits in a room of a small stone house in the village of Tappan, New York, where the Continental Army under General Washington is encamped. His name is John André, and he is the acting Adjutant-General of the British Army in New York. His captors had believed him to be a merchant named John Anderson. Now they know better. The conspiracy in which General Benedict Arnold planned to surrender West Point to the British was a crucial moment in the Revolutionary War. It was also a manoeuvre that -- had it gone the other way -- could have changed the course of the war, and of history. The author presents this episode from the perspective of a leading participant, a charming and talented professional military man, amateur actor and poet who abruptly finds himself in highly charged and then tragic circumstances. He is compelled in the end by his code of conduct to rise above his own shortcomings. An individual rather than a historical figure is movingly and dramatically presented

Rembrandt's house : exploring the world of the great master by Anthony Bailey( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No. 4 Breestraat, Amsterdam, is an imposing 17th century house, but little different from many big old houses in the city. What makes it exceptional is that for twenty years one of the world's greatest artists lived here - Rembrandt van Rijn, master painter of the time. This is the story of that house, the world Rembrandt observed in and around it and the special universe he created in his studio there. In this unique and imaginative portrait, Anthony Bailey pieces together the events and circumstances which shaped Rembrandt's career - from his beginnings in Leiden and early apprenticeship to his marriage and personal relationships; his restless artistic energy, creative triumphs and, finally, his slow fall from fashion and descent into financial hardship, which forced him to sell his home. With as many levels and hidden corners as the house Bailey describes, this is at once biography, travel writing and history of a golden age
