A studio of her own : women artists in Boston, 1870-1940 by Erica E Hirshler( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Studio of Her Own tells the interwoven stories of some forty women artists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, exploring, in the author's words, "both the individual lives and talents of Boston women artists and the integrated relationships that enabled many of them to excel."" "No one category or medium can encompass these careers, which range from the paintings of Ellen Day Hale and the sculptures of Katharine Lane Weems to the photographs of Sarah Sears and the innovative book designs of Sarah Wyman Whitman. Included as well are lengthy discussions of the importance of the Arts and Crafts movement; the conflicts presented by concerns of marriage and family (as well as the relative freedom offered by the "Boston marriage" between two women); the role of the MFA School and of such key instructors as Frank W. Benson, William Rimmer, and Edmund Tarbell; and the ways in which societal changes have influenced the art itself. Perhaps more than anything, this is a story of community and resourcefulness, in which some artists adopted "suitable" media and subject matter - still lifes, arts and crafts - and made them their own, while others campaigned for the right to work in such traditionally "male" domains as monumental sculpture, and still others braved the scandal of painting from live nude models, traveling abroad to study their art, or showing their work on a national scale." "Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, A Studio of Her Own is the definitive work on an important but little-known moment in America's cultural history"--Jacket

Japan at the dawn of the modern age : woodblock prints from the Meiji era, 1868-1912, selections from the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston by Donald Keene( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Woodblock prints from the Meiji era (1868-1912) challenge our notion of Japanese pictures as romanticized, timeless images of geisha, kabuki actors, and picturesque landscapes. Instead, they depicted current events with a propagandistic flair, and were printed in vivid colors reflecting the vibrancy of Japan's rush toward modernization at the turn of the century. As feudal Japan was transformed into a unified, modern state and emerged as a military and industrial power, woodblock printmakers chronicled and validated the introduction of Western technology, architecture, dress, and social practices, as well as the wars that propelled Japan into the international community. In keeping with the new spirit of the Meiji years, the woodblock prints often feature lurid colors that prefigure twentieth-century poster art and stylistically point the way toward contemporary Japanese manga and animation." "Japan at the Dawn of the Modern Age features over eighty Meiji-era prints in full color, along with two previously unpublished essays by the renowned literary critic, historian, and biographer Donald Keene on Meiji and his times. Additional writings by curators Anne Nishimura Morse and Louise E. Virgin, and the collector and historian Frederic A. Sharf place these prints in the context of their times, their collection, and their home at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston."--Jacket
