Frederic Remington : the masterworks by Michael Edward Shapiro( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It would be easy to dismiss Remington's Wild West panorama with his glorified cowboys and noble savages, his ready-made melancholy and sunsets. While this catalogue of a traveling exhibition recognizes the painter's vocal jingoism and racism, it aims to show that he was much more than a facile celebrant of American frontier life. In Remington's later paintings, a literal realism gave way to impressionism and symbolism. His pure, almost abstract landscapes and romantic nocturnes suggest that white settlers could live in harmony with nature instead of imposing their will on it. The energy and dynamism of his darkly encrusted, cantilevered sculptures are undeniable. Remington's awareness that the destruction of Amerindian civilization was a national tragedy is reflected in his little-known, melodramatic novels and short stories, as one of the essays here makes clear. With 180 plates (half in color), this album highlights his diverse artistic outlets, from photography to drawing. Shapiro is chief curator at the St. Louis Art Museum; Hassrick is director of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. BOMC dividend selection, American Artist Book Club alternate. (March)
Masks : faces of culture by John W Nunley( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transporting readers across centuries and continents, this volume presents masks from all over the world. 200 colorplates provide such stunning and diverse examples as an intricately carved coronation mask from Cameroon; an exquisite gold Egyptian mummy mask; colorful Mexican Day of the Dead masks; and breathtaking Noh theater masks from Japan." "Accompanying the photographs are essays tracing the functions of masks throughout history, written by scholars in the fields of art history, anthropology, decorative arts and design, and theater. John Nunley examines cross-cultural themes in his discussion of the origins of masks and their use in rituals. He also analyzes the phenomenon of men who "cross-dress" in masquerade, because women are not allowed to wear masks in many societies." "John Emigh and Lesley K. Ferris explore the role of masks in theater, whose roots lie in ritual performance. Cara McCarty looks at the ways in which masks are featured in the medium of film as well. But these artistic examples are not the only masks found in industrial societies. McCarty also discusses the proliferation of masks for physical protection, in areas such as military combat, sports competitions, and space exploration."--Jacket

Vincent Van Gogh and the painters of the petit boulevard by Cornelia Homburg( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most people think of van Gogh as a tortured loner, but the engrossing Vincent van Gogh and the Painters of the Petit Boulevard makes plain his great desire to be part of the art world of his time. Focusing on the years between 1886 (when he came to Paris) and 1890 (the year of his death), four art historians examine the competitive spirit of young radical painters who searched for ways to express their reactions to an industrialized world increasingly remote from the idealized values of peasant life. The painters (who included Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Signac, and Émile Bernard) were vastly different from one another in style and temperament. Yet van Gogh embraced them all as "painters of the petit boulevard"--fellow unrecognized artists toiling in out-of-the-way studios and showing their work in cafés rather than in swank galleries. Dreaming of founding a colony of like-minded painters he called "The Studio of the South," van Gogh decamped to Arles in 1888. But the only artist who joined him, for two stressful months, was Gauguin. Both were loners, and differences loomed large. While van Gogh worked from nature, conveying his physical engagement with thick marks on canvas, Gauguin looked inward, abstracting objects with a thin application of paint. Even on a personal level, Gauguin's swaggering ease with the local women magnified van Gogh's insecurities. Each essay illuminates a different aspect of the complex personal, social, and artistic motivations that fueled each "petit boulevard" artist's search for a personal artistic identity. Lavishly illustrated and fluidly written, this book is the catalog for an exhibition of the same name at the St. Louis Art Museum (through May 13, 2001) and the Städelsches Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt (June 8-September 2, 2001)."

This book celebrates an international array of both historic and contemporary women photographers, whose important contributions to art and photography have provided a collective perspective on life, the self, the world, and each other. From well-known luminaries of the medium such as Diane Arbus, Margaret Bourke-White, Nan Goldin, Laura Gilpin, Dorothea Lange, Imogen Cunningham, Cindy Sherman, Tina Barney, and Annie Leibovitz, to far lesser-known figures, this book is not so much comprehensive as an ideal cross-section of those women whose images have shaped the way we view the world

Painting on light : drawings and stained glass in the age of Dürer and Holbein by Barbara Butts( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The names Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein the Younger evoke the dazzling accomplishments of Renaissance panel painting and printmaking, but they may not summon images of stained glass. Nevertheless, D rer, Holbein, and their southern German and Swiss contemporaries designed some of the most splendid works in the history of the medium. This lavish volume is a comprehensive survey of the contribution to stained glass made by these extraordinarily gifted artists and the equally talented glass painters who rendered their compositions in glass. Included are discussions of both monumental church windows and smaller-scale stained-glass panels made for cloisters, civic buildings, residences, and private chapels. The subjects of these rarely seen drawings and panels range from religious topics to secular themes, including love, planets, hunts, and battles. Focusing on stained glass produced in Germany and Switzerland from about 1495 to 1530, Painting on Light includes drawings by D rer, Holbein, Albrecht Altdorfer, Hans Baldung Grien, J rg Breu the Elder, Hans Burgkmair, Urs Graf, Hans von Kulmbach, Hans Leu the Younger, Niklaus Manuel Deutsch, Hans Sch ufelein, Hans Weiditz, and others. This informative book is published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Getty Museum from July 11 through September 24, 2000, and from November 7, 2000, to January 4, 2001, at the Saint Louis Art Museum
