A Renaissance treasury : the Flagg collection of European decorative arts and sculpture by Laurie Winters( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Richard and Erna Flagg collection, formed over six decades and given and loaned to the Milwaukee Art Museum in 1991, is one of the most important single donations of earlier European decorative arts to an American museum. It includes unique and historically significant objects that provide insight into the culture, religion, and history of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Although enormously varied in style and country of origin, these works are united in their emphasis on virtuoso displays of craftsmanship, technical innovation, intricate artistry, and precious materials." "A Renaissance Treasury catalogues 112 objects in all; of these, 77 are reproduced, mostly in color, with authoritative commentary on their formal, social, and religious significance."--BOOK JACKET

Bessie Potter Vonnoh : sculptor of women by Julie Aronson( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Gilded Age, when most sculptors aspired to produce monuments, Bessie Potter Vonnoh (1872-1955) made significant contributions to small bronze sculpture and garden statuary designed for the embellishment of the home. Her work commanded admiration for her fluid and suggestive modeling, graceful lines, and sculptural form. In 1904 Bessie Potter Vonnoh won the gold medal for sculpture at the St. Louis World's Fair for bronzes of contemporary American women and children that delighted all who saw them." "Although Vonnoh's work is represented today in museums throughout the United States, Bessie Potter Vonnoh: Sculptor of Women provides for the first time an intimate and engaging encounter with one of the most widely respected sculptors of her day. Julie Aronson explores how, by concentrating on sculpture for domestic settings that expertly combined naturalism with elegance, Vonnoh negotiated a male-dominated field to create a pathway to professional success and made high-quality sculpture accessible to a wider audience. In an essay that examines Vonnoh's relationship with her foundries and scrutinizes bronze castings, Janis Conner demystifies baffling issues of authenticity and quality in turn-of-the-century bronzes."--Jacket
