Murrow, Helen Kirkpatrick, Margaret Bourke-White, Carl Mydans, Bill Mauldin, and Ernest Hemingway, the Fourth Estate's reporting of World War II surpassed all previous war coverage. For the first time, new technologies enabled almost instantaneous transmission to a waiting audience back home. Radio listeners heard the voice of Edward R. Murrow, speaking from a London rooftop during a German air raid, and newspapers ran stories and pictures of battles in the Pacific and Europe, sometimes only hours after the reporters witnessed the scenes. And for the first time women covered the war, earning the respect of their male colleagues for insightful, accurate reporting+-+93983451063246863ocn627693494book20100.47Katz, JonathanHide/Seek : difference and desire in American portraitureExhibition catalogsA new interpretation of modern American portraiture based on the history of sexual difference. This companion volume to an exhibition of the same name at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, traces the defining presence of same-sex desire in American portraiture through a seductive selection of more than 140 full-color illustrations, drawings, and portraits from leading American artists. Arcing from the turn of the twentieth century, through the emergence of the modern gay liberation movement in 1969, the tragedies of the AIDS epidemic, and to the present, Hide/Seek openly considers what has long been suppressed or tacitly ignored, even by the most progressive sectors of our society: the influence of gay and lesbian artists in creating American modernism.--From publisher description+-+44479833066693ocn002339089book19750.50Sobieszek, Robert AThe spirit of fact : the daguerreotypes of Southworth & Hawes, 1843-1862HistoryExhibition catalogs6657ocn045399875book20000.28Voss, FrederickPortraits of the presidents : the National Portrait GalleryBiographyCatalogsPortraits"The most visited gallery of the National Portrait Gallery is the Hall of Presidents, the collection of portraits of America's elected leaders. More than a visual record of holders of power, these images evoke the careers and legacies of the men they portray." "An authoritative text by Frederick Voss illuminates the pictures, offering a concise history of each President and telling how each portrait came to be made. Included in this book are images of every American President, from Gilbert Stuart's famous depiction of George Washington, to Elaine de Kooning's John F. Kennedy and Norman Rockwell's Richard Nixon, and concluding with Chuck Close's photographic portrait of Bill Clinton."--BOOK JACKET+-+73477329356586ocn011786003book19850.47Fabian, Monroe HJoseph Wright, American artist, 1756-1793HistoryExhibition catalogs6543ocn009970111book19830.50Stapp, William FRobert Cornelius, portraits from the dawn of photography : an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, October 20, 1983 to January 22, 1984Exhibition catalogs6493ocn010100853book19830.50Gordon, Alden RMasterpieces from Versailles : three centuries of French portraitureExhibition catalogs8909ocn006626208book19780.53National Portrait Gallery (Smithsonian Institution)Permanent collection illustrated checklistCatalogs83016ocn004032871book19780.56National Portrait Gallery (Smithsonian Institution)National Portrait Gallery Smithsonian Institution : permanent collection, illustrated checklistCatalogs4202ocn050073574book20020.59National Portrait Gallery (Smithsonian Institution)Eye contact : modern American portrait drawings from the National Portrait GalleryExhibition catalogs"Fifty graphic masterpieces representing the American artistic tradition from the 1880s to the 1980s are showcased in this volume, including the work of such renowned artists as Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, Stuart Davis, Jacob Lawrence, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein. Life portraits of well-known Americans, from politicians and inventors to writers, artists, and musicians are represented. Theodore Roosevelt, W. C. Fields, Alice B. Toklas, Igor Stravinsky, Stokely Carmichael, Truman Capote, and Robert F. Kennedy number among them." "In her introductory essay for Eye Contact, Wendy Wick Reaves analyzes the history of twentieth-century portraiture in America and the changing role of drawing within it. Bernard F. Reilly Jr. follows with an essay about the intellectual developments that influenced artists' conceptualization of the figure. The volume also contains in-depth essays by Reaves and twelve other art historians on each of the highlighted National Portrait Gallery treasures. What emerges are rich, wonderful stories: Gaston Lachaise capturing an exuberant Hart Crane dancing nude with his hands clapping over his head; William Zorach drawing Edna St. Vincent Millay for Century magazine just after the young poet won the Pulitzer Prize; Beauford Delaney remembering James Baldwin after an intense, decades-long, mentoring friendship; Andy Warhol and Jamie Wyeth portraying each other, relishing their supposedly antithetical roles as the "Patriarch of Pop" and the "Prince of Realism.""--BOOK JACKET+-+02173404753546ocn047637519book20000.63National Portrait Gallery (Smithsonian Institution)A brush with history : paintings from the National Portrait GalleryCatalogsExhibition catalogs"Portraiture is a unique genre that is common ground both for American art history and for history told through the biographies of the people who shaped it.
