Childe Hassam : impressionist in the West by Margaret E Bullock( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The renowned American impressionist Childe Hassam built his reputation on light-filled images depicting the streets of New York and New England's coastal resorts. During his sojourns in the West, he painted at least sixty images ranging from portraits and still lifes to landscapes and seascapes in oil, watercolor, and pastel." "Childe Hassam: Impressionist in the West explores this significant, but little known, body of work in the context of the artist's entire oeuvre and larger developments in modern art at the turn of the century. This richly illustrated catalogue investigates how Hassam's images of the West mirror a number of his personal and professional concerns; provides insights into technical aspects of his work, which he tended to adapt to the subject and circumstances at hand; and looks at how the West appealed to the artist's broader interests and concerns, such as his desire to create an art that was purely American in both content and style."--Jacket

Stroganoff : the palace and collections of a Russian noble family by Penelope Hunter-Stiebel( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lavishly illustrated with more than two hundred works, this book chronicles the history of the Stroganoff family and its collections. From icons, embroideries, and richly decorated Russian stonework to exquisite paintings and decorative objects produced in western Europe, these works of art, most of them never before reproduced, represent the highest level of quality and reflect the discerning taste of the Stroganoffs as both collectors and patrons. Of special interest are the architectural designs of Andrei Voronikhin, a Stroganoff protege whose influence can still be seen in St. Petersburg today." "This book, published to accompany an exhibition opening at the Portland Art Museum, Oregon, provides an opportunity to understand how one family helped to shape the culture of a nation."--Jacket
Mysterious spirits, strange beasts, earthly delights : early Chinese art from the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer collection by Donald Jenkins( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The artworks documented in this volume are selected from the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Collection of Early Chinese Art, which has been assembled over the course of some thirty years by these prominent Northwest collectors. Reflecting an empire whose strength and splendor saw few rivals in the world, the sociopolitical, intellectual, and cultural institutions established in this period provided prototypes for later dynasties throughout China's imperial period and even for the republics in modern times. They also had far-reading significance in the rest of East Asia. No other period in China's history has enjoyed similar influence."--Jacket

Great expectations : John Singer Sargent painting children by Barbara Dayer Gallati( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The title of the book makes ironic reference to Charles Dickens's famous novel Great Expectations and signals that Sargent's paintings of children are interpreted here in light of the expectations associated with childhood as it was represented in the art and literature of the late nineteenth century - a period then acknowledged as the advent of the "Century of the Child." The investigation traces how Sargent reacted to the contemporary shift in childhood's meaning and used child imagery to advance his professional standing with the public and critics. In turn, this strategy aided in removing child imagery from the grip of Victorian sentiment, elevating it to a higher level in the hierarchy of artistic subject matter." "The book includes five essays by three notable art historians, as well as a Biographical Index of Child Sitters, and is illustrated with a wide array of Sargent's works, including the earliest known oil portrait from his hand (an intimate 1875 portrait of his five-year-old sister) and some of the best-loved paintings of his career. In addition, a wealth of comparative works by his contemporaries is provided along with a selection of Sargent family photographs, some of which are published here for the first time."--BOOK JACKET
People of the river : native arts of the Oregon territory by Bill Mercer( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People of the River: Native Arts of the Oregon Territory is the first major publication to focus exclusively on the rich artistic traditions of the Native Americans who traditionally lived along the lower Columbia River from the mouth of the Snake River to the Pacific Ocean. In this illustrated catalogue, author Bill Mercer describes the Columbia River art style as an indigenous development that emerged over the course of countless generations and whose forms reveal unique combination of designs, motifs, materials, and techniques. Included are more than two hundred objects organized into sections that focus on sculptural forms, basketry, and beadwork spanning the pre-contact era to the middle of the twentieth century. People of the River features many objects that have never before been published and provides been insight into a previously unrecognized area of Native American art. With insightful texts, lavish reproductions, and an extensive bibliography, People of the River promises to be a key resource on this compelling body of work for years to come."--Jacket

Manuel Neri : the figure in relief by Bruce Nixon( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This striking publication focuses on relief sculptures and related drawings by Manuel Neri. The extensive body of work is clearly grounded in a long sculptural tradition that stretches back through the Renaissance and Medieval sculpture to ancient architectural sites, and underscores Neri's significance as a sculptor of international note whose works in plaster, ceramic, bronze, and stone have merited him the 2006 Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Sculpture Center. Neri has created figurative relief sculpture over a period of twenty-five years. His concern with the dynamic nature of the architectural or spatial environment has developed his keen understanding of its potency as a setting for the figure. His pieces possess incredibly rich and evocative surfaces and his ability to depict the figural form in various media with equal mastery and sensitivity is unrivaled. This publication documents not only reliefs but also more than fifty years of Neri's engagement with the partial figure."--Publisher's website

Art and music in Venice : from the Renaissance to the Baroque by Hilliard T Goldfarb( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artistic and musical creativity thrived in the Venetian Republic between the early 16th century and the close of the 18th century. The city-state was known for its superb operas and splendid balls, and the acoustics of the architecture led to complex polyphony in musical composition. Accordingly, notable composers, including Antonio Vivaldi and Adrian Willaert, developed styles that were distinct from those of other Italian cultures. The Venetian music scene, in turn, influenced visual artists, inspiring paintings by artists such as Jacopo Bassano, Canaletto, Francesco Guardi, Pietro Longhi, Bernardo Strozzi, Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo, Tintoretto and Titian. Together, art and music served larger aims, whether social, ceremonial or even political. --
