Great women collectors by Charlotte Gere( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the first to look at the very few women who, from 1750 to 1997 (the book does not include living collectors), independently assembled significant collections of art, ceramics, jewelry, glass, furniture, textiles, silver, photography, and other objects." "Richly illustrated throughout, Great Women Collectors shows that the kinds of collections created by these empresses, queens, socialites, actresses, and entrepreneurs often differed tangibly from those of their male counterparts. Authors Charlotte Gere and Marina Vaizey consider how and why these women collected, and explore the obstacles they overcame to create such important collections, many of which can be seen today, sometimes in their entirety, in public museums and galleries."--Jacket

Artistic circles : design & decoration in the aesthetic movement by Charlotte Gere( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and Swedish and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artists' houses and their gardens formed a distinct and influential strand in Victorian architecture and decoration, eliciting public interest and coverage in the popular press of the day. The artist's home and its contents were essential components of the Aesthetic Movement, in which artists - as home-owners, interior designers, producers and consumers - drove the movement into the mainstream. Artists such as Frederic Leighton, G.F. Watts, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones were the product of the phenomenon of the Victorian art world which brought fame and public adulation to its most successful exponents. "Artistic Circles" takes the unique approach of examining Aestheticism from a social perspective and reveals how the art movement influenced the development of domestic building and homemaking for an emerging section of Victorian society, the educated middle-class professional

This richly illustrated book covers one of the most fascinating yet poorly documented periods of jewellery design.

Jewellery in the age of Queen Victoria : a mirror to the world by Charlotte Gere( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 'age of Victoria' is taken in its widest sense to encompass jewellery made throughout Europe and America, displayed at the great international exhibitions and distributed through foreign trade, illustrated publications and a burgeoning tourist industry ... The focus of the book is on the attitudes of owners to their jewellery and the symbolic weight that it was expected to carry. Rather than concentrating on the major figures at the top end of the jewellery trade, or indeed offering a chronological survey of the development of jewellery styles and fashions, it is oriented towards the social aspects of owning, wearing and displaying jewellery. The authors show, for example, how novelists use jewellery to add a moral or metaphorical dimension to a character, while jewels depicted in portraits would often have disclosed multiple messages which could be immediately decoded by the viewer. The achievements of science, the fascination with nature and the Victorian sense of humour are all embodied in jewellery. Topics discussed in depth include the importance of jewellery in the life of the Queen herself, jewellery and dress, the language of jewellery, the cult of novelty, the importance of nationalism in the revival of historical styles, and the contribution of archaeological discoveries."--Publisher's description
Pre-Raphaelite sisters by Jan Marsh( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (the 'PRB') exhibited their first works in 1849 it heralded a revolution in British art. Styling themselves the "Young Painters of England", this group of young men aimed to overturn stale Victorian artistic conventions and challenge the previous generation with their startling colours and compositions. Think of the images created by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and others in their circle, however, and it is not men but pale-faced young women with lustrous, tumbling locks that spring to mind, gazing soulfully from the picture frame or in dramatic scenes painted in glowing colours. Who were these women? What is known of their lives and their roles in a movement that, in successive phases, spanned over half a century? Some were models, plucked from obscurity to pose for figures in Pre-Raphaelite paintings, whileothers were sisters, wives, daughters and friends of the artists. Several were artists themselves, with aspirations to match those of the men, sharing the same artistic and social networks yet condemned by their gender to occupy a separate sphere. Others inhabited and sustained a male-dominated art world as partners in production, maintaining households and studios and socialising with patrons. Some were skilled in the arts of interior decoration, dressmaking, embroidery, jewellery-making -the fine crafts that formed a supportive tier for the "higher" arts of painting and sculpture. And although their backgrounds and life-experiences certainly varied widely, all were engaged in creating Pre-Raphaelite art
Edward Burne-Jones by Edward Coley Burne-Jones( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward Burne-Jones is widely regarded as one of the great British artists, and the only Pre-Raphaelite to achieve world-wide recognition through the elusive mythic language he developed across a range of media. Accompanying a major exhibition of Burne-Jones's work at Tate Britain, this beautifully-designed book looks at what was distinctive about Burne-Jones's art, and charts the course through which he emerged from being an outsider, to being revered as one of the great artists of the European fin de siecle. It shows how he maintained his vision through meticulous attention to craftsmanship and the repetition of key motifs. It examines the extraordinary combination of flattening and illusionistic effects in Burne-Jones's work, the artist's preoccupation with romance and horror, and the emphasis he placed on the potential of physical and symbolic objects within an image to simultaneously unlock and obfuscate meaning. Illustrated works show how Burne-Jones's highly subjective approach to storytelling resulted in a paradoxical combination of seriality and stasis, making the image unsettling in narrative and emotional terms

A brush with nature : the Gere collection of landscape oil sketches by Christopher Riopelle( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning in the 1950s, John and Charlotte Gere pioneered the collecting of small-scale landscape oil sketches created by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century artists working out of doors. Such pictures, painted quickly to capture subtle atmospheric effects and the fleeting play of light, played a vital role in the visual training of generations of European artists. The sketches were not conceived of as finished works of art, were rarely if ever exhibited during the painters' lifetimes, and were often kept in the studio for later consultation." "Today the Gere collection numbers some 70 works, the majority of them views of Italy by British, French, Italian, German, Belgian and Scandinavian artists. It includes paintings by such admired figures as Thomas Jones, Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes, Simon Denis, Louis Gauffier, Francois-Marius Granet, Gilles Classon, Giovanni-Battista Camuccini and Frederic, Lord Leighton. These intimate and compelling documents of artists at work form what is perhaps the most comprehensive collection of its kind." "Two introductory essays provide a background to the collection. Charlotte Gere's memoir charts its formation, while Christopher Riopelle's essay traces the development of the plein-air oil sketch, and its place in European painting. This revised edition incorporates new information about the paintings gathered since the Gere collection was first shown at the National Gallery in summer 1999, much of it generously provided by visitors to that exhibition."--Jacket
