Winslow Homer by Nicolai Cikovsky ( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,515 libraries worldwide
The book discusses and reproduces more than two hundred paintings, watercolors, and drawings that span Homer's career, all of which are discussed in entries by Cikovsky and Kelly. It begins with the Civil War paintings that first brought Homer's remarkable artistic mentality to public attention, in which he movingly expressed the profound implications the war held for the nation. Homer's interest in national themes is further explored in his works of the later 1860s and 1870s, which embraced a wide spectrum of American life. His shift toward more idealized and heroic imagery and his withdrawal to a solitary life at Prout's Neck, Maine, in the 1880s are discussed as turning points leading to the great achievements of his last two decades. After considering his beautiful late watercolors of the Tropics and the Adirondacks, and his monumental Prout's Neck seascapes, the book concludes with a reassessment of the tragic, almost visionary paintings of his last years. The book is also the catalogue for a major exhibition on Homer's works, opening at the National Gallery of Art on 15 October 1995 and traveling to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
John Singer Sargent by John Singer Sargent ( Book )
3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,319 libraries worldwide
"The remarkable portraits for which John Singer Sargent is most famous are only one aspect of a career that included landscapes, watercolors, figure subjects, and murals. Even within portraiture, his style ranged from bold experiments to studied formality. And the subjects of his paintings were as varied as his styles, including the leaders of fashionable society, rural laborers, city streets, remote mountains, and the front lines of World War I. This book surveys and evaluates the extraordinary range of Sargent's work, and reproduces 155 of his paintings in color. It accompanies a spectacular international exhibition - the first major retrospective of the artist's career since the memorial exhibitions that followed his death." "Richard Ormond presents a biographical sketch and, in a second essay, reviews Sargent's development as an artist. Mary Crowford Volk explores his thirty-year involvement with painting murals - in particular the works at the Boston Public Library and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts that Sargent regarded as his greatest achievement."--Jacket.

Van Gogh face to face : the portraits by Vincent van Gogh ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1,203 libraries worldwide
"Published to accompany a major touring exhibition, this book brings together for the first time the great portraits from all periods of the painter's life. The story begins with the relatively unknown body of vivid, carefully executed drawings of orphans and paupers produced in The Hague when he was a young man. It continues with van Gogh's time in Paris, where the influence of Impressionism, Japanese art, and contemporaries like Gauguin and Bernard led him to produce some of his most famous images." "Each work is reproduced and set in context by leading scholars. Individually, their essays focus on particular groups of work, shedding new light on van Gogh's aims and methods. Collectively, they establish the centrality of portraiture to his oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET.

Charles Sheeler, the photographs by Theodore E Stebbins ( Book )
8 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in English and held by 735 libraries worldwide
"This monograph presents the often-overlooked photographic work of Charles Sheeler. It opens with his Cubist-inspired architectural images of the 1910s, moves on to the highly abstract nude studies and dramatic New York City views from around 1920, and culminates in the series devoted to the Ford Motor Company's River Rouge plant in 1927, a project that established modern industrial iconography. Also featured are his stunning images of the Chartres cathedral done in 1929 and images of American industry made for Fortune magazine in 1939. Freely experimenting with the possibilities of the medium, Sheeler paved the way for other innovative photographers such as Walker Evans. This volume also investigates the links between the photographer and the painter Charles Sheeler - as he employed both media in the process of visual creation."--BOOK JACKET.
