Aubrey Beardsley by Stephen Calloway( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898) was the most notorious illustrator of his day. This book, published to commemorate the centenary of his tragically early death at the age of twenty-five, tells the story of his extraordinary life and brief, hectic career. Beardsley's distinctive body of work is considered alongside that of his contemporaries and friends, among them Oscar Wilde, James McNeill Whistler, Max Beerbohm, Edward Burne-Jones, and W.B. Yeats, and set against the vibrant and often racy artistic, literary, and social world of 1890s London. Beardsley's startling designs are reproduced here from original drawings and from rare early editions of the books and magazines he illustrated. Also included are examples of his innovative prints, posters, and bookbindings, along with a gallery of portraits and photographs of Wilde, Yeats, and other celebrated figures in Beardsley's circle. The authoritative text is the first to fully explore the precocious young artist's diverse influences, which range from ancient Greek vase paintings to erotic Japanese ukiyo-e prints and European Old Master paintings by Mantegna, Watteau, and Botticelli
The cult of beauty : the Victorian avant-garde 1860-1900 by Stephen Calloway( Book )

25 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book "focuses on a period in the nineteenth century when a group of artists, architects and designers found themselves united in the search for a new Beauty. The Aesthetic Movement, as it came to be known, sought nothing less than the creation of a new kind of art, an art freed from outworn establishment ideas and Victorian notions of morality. This was to be "Art for Art's sake" -- art that did not tell stories of make moral points,art that dared simply to offer visual delight and hint at sensuous pleasure. This new and exciting "Cult of Beauty" joined, for a while at least, romantic bohemians such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, along with maverick figures such as James McNeill Whistler and painters of grand classical subjects who belonged to the circle of Frederic Leighton. ... The book also reveals how artists' houses, their collections of beautiful things and their extravagant lifestyles became the object of public fascination. the influence of the "Palaces of Art" created by Rossetti and Morris, Lord Leighton and others led to a widespread revolution in architecture and interior decoration. Oscar Wilde made his name promoting the idea of "The House Beautiful" and the styles favoured by Aesthetic designers were among the very first to be widely exploited commercially in Britain."

John Constable : the making of a master by Mark Evans( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Criticized in his lifetime for his rough handling of paint, John Constable's (1776-1837) paintings have long defined the idea of the English countryside, its geography fully captured by his remarkable naturalism. His vivid and timeless oil sketches, as he called them, have been celebrated since the 1890s as precursors of Impressionism, Modernism, and photography. This major book reconciles the two defining aspects of Constable's work--his revolutionary painting techniques and his reverence for the old masters. Where other artists competed with the masters, Constable assimilated their ideas and values to imbue his own naturalistic vision with dynamism. This seeming incompatibility, placed in the context of the artist's wider practice, helps delineate why Constable remains such a powerful influence on contemporary artists
