George Tooker by Robert Cozzolino ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"George Tooker first came to prominence for imaginative visions that expressed the uncertainity of the Cold War era. Over the past sixty years, using his own particular blend of figuration and abstraction, he has continued to create radiantly illuminated yet disquieting images. Imbued with moral, spiritual, and sensual power, they quietly demonstrate his passion for issues of social equality, and have garnered admiration from critics and peers alike for their acuity and virtuoso technique." "This book, the first representative overview of Tooker's work for thirty years, provides a much-deserved and comprehensive examination of the scope of his art. In essays comprising new research and offering fresh insights, it explores his passion for composition, his spirituality and his exploration of identity. Featuring superb reproductions of more than eighty of the artist's timeless images, the book also enables readers to see the unexpected ways in which Tooker's work echoes what has been considered avant garde in American art and to appreciate the depth of his resonant, prescient imagery. A major new study of one of America's most influential modern painters, George Tooker celebrates the lifetime achievement of an artist whose work subtly challenges conventinal prejudices and captures the essential mystery at the heart of the human experience."--BOOK JACKET
Reckoning with Winslow Homer : his late paintings and their influence by Bruce Robertson ( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The radical camera : New York's Photo League, 1936-1951 by Mason Klein ( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Artists in the Photo League, active from 1936 to 1951, were known for capturing sharply revealing, compelling moments from everyday life. Their focus centered on New York City and its vibrant streets--a newsboy at work, a brass band on a bustling corner, a crowded beach at Coney Island. Though beautiful, the images harbor strong social commentary on issues of class, child labor, and opportunity. The Radical Camera explores the fascinating blend of aesthetics and social activism at the heart of the Photo League, tracing the group's left-leaning roots and idealism to the worker-photography movement in Europe. Influenced by mentors Lewis Hine, Berenice Abbott, and Paul Strand, artists in the Photo League worked within a unique complex comprising a school, a darkroom, a gallery, and a salon, in which photography was discussed as both a means for social change and an art form. The influence of the Photo League artists on modern photography was enormous, ushering in the New York School. Presenting 150 works of the members of the Photo League alongside complementary essays that offer new interpretations of the League's work, ideas, and pedagogy, this beautifully illustrated book features artists including Margaret Bourke-White, Sid Grossman, Morris Engel, Lisette Model, Ruth Orkin, Walter Rosenblum, Aaron Siskind, W. Eugene Smith, and Weegee, among many others"--Provided by publisher
Optic nerve : perceptual art of the 1960s by Joe Houston ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The abstract art movement Op art came to international attention in the mid-1960s, an era of global social and technological change. The movement, which placed emphasis on viewer perception by exploring optical effects in painting, sculpture and light installation, quickly gained in popularity but met with considerable criticism. This important book published to accompany the first major Op art exhibition by on American museum in twenty-five years, examines the development of the movement, its cultural context and its widespread impact on advertising, fashion and film-making. Featuring visually stunning works by such key figures as Josef Albers, Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely, Optic Nerve offers a timely reappraisal of this highly influential movement."--BOOK JACKET

Renoir's women by Ann Dumas ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Taking as its starting point two very different but equally engaging female portraits, which Renoir painted twenty years apart - Madame Henriot en travesti, a portrait of the Parisian actress dressed as a pageboy, and Christine Lerolle Embroidering, showing the daughter of Renoir's friend the painter Henry Lerolle in a scene from her everyday life - Renoir's Women brings to life the major themes of Renoir's captivating pictures of women with enlightening text and over eighty beautiful illustrations, including some of the most perceptive and intimate portrayals of women ever painted."--BOOK JACKET
George Bellows : an artist in action by Mary Sayre Haverstock ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"George Wesley Bellows (1882-1925) painted American life in action. From prizefights and polo matches to children playing on the banks of a river, his subjects reflect his vivacious approach to the world around him. A major realist painter, his vigorous brushstrokes also compose landscapes of remote areas of natural beauty, scenes of bustling city streets, and intimate portraits of society figures, friends, and family. All dynamics of early twentieth-century America fill Bellows's canvases and prints." "Bellows studied at the New York School of Art under Robert Henri and became one of the leading artists of the Ashcan school. His technical brilliance and vibrant realism were celebrated from early in his career, and at the age of twenty-six he became one of the youngest artists ever to be elected to the National Academy of Design in New York. Bellows exhibited often, to great acclaim, and completed many significant commissions, achieving a powerfully impressive body of work before his sudden death in his early forties." "This book brings together the most important works of Bellows's short but prolific career, combining them with an in-depth biography of the artist. Photographs of family and friends, as well as of Bellows himself throughout his life, illuminate the text and complete this portrait of George Bellows, the artist and the man."--BOOK JACKET

Shared intelligence : American painting and the photograph by Barbara Buhler Lynes ( Book )

Shared Intelligence, companion catalog to the exhibition of the same name, explores the stimulating and productive relationship between painting and photography in American art. The essays in this beautifully illustrated book describe how this dynamic developed, beginning in the nineteenth century and continuing to the twenty-first--from Thomas Eakins to the Stieglitz circle and Georgia O'Keeffe to contemporary art. The book shows that while the initial proponents of photography were struggling to secure its place among the fine arts, photography's inherent expressiveness was leading painters t
