American realism by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and French and held by 1,520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lavishly illustrated book, surprisingly the first on the subject, explores the tremendous scope, richness, toughness, sensibility, and liveliness of the American realist tradition. Sixteen varied sections discuss and display the finest and most influential work of different groups, schools, and periodsbeginning before the Revolutionary War and including American Impressionism, the Ashcan School, Precisionism, American Scene painting, Urban Realism, Photorealism, and today's Postmodern Realism - and provide convincing proof that the American realist legacy occupies an unparalleled position in world art." "In this important critical synthesis, Edward Lucie-Smith discusses the work of the pioneering masters of American realism, such as Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, Charles Sheeler, Thomas Hart Benton, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Hopper, and Andrew Wyeth. He adds a major new dimension in his examination of the work of contemporary realist painters: those recently acknowledged as major figures, among them Isabel Bishop, Alice Neel, and Fairfield Porter, and those such as Wayne Thiebaud and Leon Golub, whose reputations and contribution only currently are coming to full appreciation. He includes as well younger artists like Eric Fischl and Jeff Koons, who have achieved star status within this innovative tradition. The book thus carries the story of American realism right up to the present, showing how it continues to flourish today as strongly as it has in the past. A magnificent volume, with more than one hundred color plates, American Realism both celebrates and reveals the power of a great American legacy."--Jacket

Race, sex, and gender : in contemporary art by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

19 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most significant developments in the art world of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s has been the rise to prominence of art made by minority cultures. Race, Sex, and Gender examines the controversial challenges these groups present to today's artists and critics. Works by African-Americans, feminists, homosexuals, and Latino-Hispanics - once considered marginal - have come to transform contemporary art. As this so-called minority art has moved into a more dominant position, museums - once official symbols of culture - have formed a more secure alliance with the avant-garde. The result is that "minority" art has become, in effect, our most major concern. In this provocative volume, art historian Edward Lucie-Smith seeks to determine how these different groups came to acclaim, and how they have revolutionized the kind of art shown in museums and galleries. Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Nancy Spero, Hannah Wilke, Larry Fuente, Cheri Samba, and Martin Puryear are among those artists whose work is pictured and discussed as Lucie-Smith probes issues of racial identity, sexual orientation, and gender politics. Statements from the artists as well as from theoreticians and critics are given, offering additional commentaries on these crucial new topics. Organized by profusely illustrated chapters devoted to specific minority groups, Race, Sex, and Gender is a timely introduction to the issues that are shaping contemporary art

Joan of Arc by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

29 editions published between 1976 and 2000 in 5 languages and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joan of Arc (?1412-31) has a unique power to fire the imagination. From her sudden burst upon the scene in the spring of 1429 to her humiliating execution at the stake in Ruen in 1431, she achieved astonishing feats that changed the history of the kingdom of France. Edward Lucie-Smith charts the action of her brief life - the journey from rural Lorraine to the tensions of the Dauphins court, the siege of Orleans, the Coronation in Reims and Joan's trial and execution - and provides a full and humanitarian biography of the Maid of Orleans." "In spite of the fact that Joan of Arc is one of the best documented people of the Middle Ages, Edward Lucie-Smith has - by 'listening to all the witnesses' including Joan herself, Joan's contemporaries, the chroniclers and all who were able to preserve fragments of her career - been able to recreate the life of one of the most remarkable women of Western Europe."--Jacket

Women and art : contested territory by Judy Chicago( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the centuries, male artists and critics have laid claim to a gender monopoly on artistic 'greatness'. Yet, throughout history, many female artists have produced art of great power and accomplishment despite widespread hostility and practical obstacles. Some of these artists have received critical recognition, many more have been consigned to obscurity. One far-reaching consequence of this has been that some of the most famous images of women have been produced by male artists with no direct knowledge of the female experience. Wave upon wave of art has depicted women as sexually precocious children, idealized icons of beauty, dewy-eyed pillars of domesticity or fearful hags; only rarely have audiences been offered a female artist's perspective on women's lives."--Jacket
