Shaker design by June Sprigg( Book )

10 editions published between 1966 and 1986 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Shaker movement in America began in 1774 when Mother Ann Lee emigrated from Manchester, England, with a small group of followers, and settled in New York State. Despite impoverished beginnings, the Shakers flourished in the early nineteenth century, and by 1840 there were four to six thousand members living in eighteen principle communities from Maine to Kentucky. Turning away from society, they lived in large families that were both celibate and communal. In striving for heaven on earth, they created a visual environment of such harmony and quiet power that it continues to impress observers today, when the Shakers have all but passed from the American scene. The many works presented in this beautiful volume reveal the Shaker commitment to excellence in all matters. The chairs, cases of drawers, work stands, baskets, oval boxes, wheelbarrows, stoves, looms, and even tailoring tools have a purity of form that transcends mere utility and elevates our appreciation beyond a sense of function."--Amazon

Sam Gilliam : a retrospective by Jonathan P Binstock( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sam Gilliam established himself as a major artist in 1968 when he jettisoned the wooden stretcher bars that had previously determined the shape of his paintings and allowed his vivid, sometimes ecstatic, rushes of color-stained canvas to hang, billow, and swing through space. Yet Gilliam's contributions to art history extend far beyond these often monumental and always dramatic works. In this volume, the first in-depth book devoted to this major figure, Corcoran Gallery of Art Curator of Contemporary Art Jonathan P. Binstock explores four decades of work and establishes the artist's place in the history of post-1960s art. Binstock's wide-ranging and provocative inquiry into Gilliam's groundbreaking achievements as a modernist and as an African American artist is supported with a wealth of beautifully produced illustrationsboth full-color and black-and-whiteas well as an annotated and illustrated chronology and an exhaustive bibliography. This thoughtful exploration and appraisal of Gilliam's extraordinary oeuvre places the artist at the forefront of American abstract art. - Publisher

8 editions published in 1975 in English and German and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The painted sketch : American impressions from nature, 1830-1880 by Eleanor Jones Harvey( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1830 and 1880, oil sketches by American landscape painters gradually emerged from the privacy of the studio as desirable and marketable works of art in their own right. Landscape painting was of prime importance in America during the mid-nineteenth century, and artists such as Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Albert Bierstadt, and Sanford Robinson Gifford traveled to distant, often inaccessible places in search of new images. The hazards accompanying such ventures added to the public's interest in the on-the-spot sketches, which also became marketing tools for the carefully composed paintings that would later be created in a studio setting

Whistler and his circle in Venice by Eric Denker( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As this book reveals, Whistler's struggle to find a "Venice of the Venetians" proved profoundly significant, challenging and redefining the ways in which others viewed the city. It also traces the remarkable breadth of his influence on artists in Europe and the United States, including John Singer Sargent, whose lifelong association with Whistler-begun during their stay in Venice-receives a new, in-depth appraisal. Whistler's impact on pictorial photography, notably on the work of Alfred Stieglitz, is explored here for the first time
