Walker Evans : decade by decade by James Crump( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The photographs of Walker Evans (1903-1975) altered the American consciousness; many of his images are fixed in our collective memory. His uncompromising documentation of poverty during the Great Depression is iconic in the history of photography, yet his equally innovative works produced in the ensuing decades have been little known and underappreciated. This monograph, spanning all of Evans's work, presents many photographs that are only rarely seen, including his last images, the Polaroids he shot in the early 1970s. The photographer's rising influence in the 1970s and his symbiotic relationship with legendary Museum of Modern Art curator John Szarkowski are at the core of this revisionist volume"--Page 2 of cover

John Henry Twachtman : an American impressionist by Lisa N Peters( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Twachtman was one of the most modern American painters of his day. A founding member of the Ten American Painters and an important teacher at the Art Students League, Twachtman combined European and American influences to create his own highly individual artistic style. Throughout his career, Twachtman won the approval of his fellow artists by challenging artistic conventions and experimenting with innovative subject matter. This catalogue is the first in-depth assessment of Twachtman's career. In an essay based on fresh research, Lisa N. Peters provides the definitive account of Twachtman's life as an artist. With an eye for the critical reception of his work, Peters constructs a narrative of Twachtman's artistic development, from his student days in Munich to his early death in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Accompanying the traveling exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art, this fully illustrated catalogue elegantly reveals the subtle delicacy of Twachtman's oeuvre."--Jacket
Henry Ossawa Tanner : modern spirit by Henry Ossawa Tanner( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautiful book, companion publication to the exhibition of the same name, presents a complex overview of the life and career of the pioneering African American artist Henry O. Tanner (1859-1937). Recognized as the patriarch of African American artists, Tanner forged a path to international success, powerfully influencing younger black artists who came after him. Following a preface by David Driskell, the essays in this book -- written by international scholars including Alan Braddock, Michael Leja, Jean-Claude Lesage, Richard Powell, Marc Simpson, Tyler Stovall, and Hélène Valance -- explore many facets of Tanner's life, including his upbringing in post-Civil War Philadelphia, his background as the son of a bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal church, and his role as the first major academically trained African American artist. Additional essays discuss Tanner's expatriate life in France, his depictions of the Holy Land and North Africa, and the scientific and technical innovations reflected in his oeuvre. Edited and introduced by Anna O. Marley, this volume expands our understanding of Tanner's place in art history, showing that his status as a painter was deeply influenced by his race but not decided by it--Publisher

Decoded messages : the symbolic language of Chinese animal painting by Hou-mei Sung( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Ming Dynasty numerous new animal themes were created to convey political and ethical messages current at court. As the result a sophisticated language of Chinese animal painting was developed, employing both the animals' symbolic associations and homonymic puns. Hou-mei Sung's exciting rediscovery of some of these lost meanings has led to a full-scale investigation of the evolving history of Chinese animal painting." "Distinct symbolic meanings were associated with individual motifs, but all animals were assigned a place in the universe according to the Chinese concept of nature. From the very early yin/yang cosmology to later developments of Daoist and Confucian philosophies and ethics, Chinese animals gained new meanings related to their historical contexts. This book explores these new findings, using the colorful animal images and their rich and evolving symbolic meanings to gain insight into unique aspects of Chinese art, as well as Chinese culture and history."--Jacket

The arts of Kashmir by Pratapaditya Pal( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An important cultural bridge between the Indian subcontinent and regions to the west and east for over two millennia, the Kashmir Valley was a vibrant hub of intellectual activity for its Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim populations. Multiple cultural influences have fostered a unique artistic environment of diverse aesthetics, witnessed in this landmark exhibition of 130 sumptuous objects of exemplary quality, dating from the 2nd to the 20th centuries. The Arts of Kashmir comprises works of Buddhist, Hindu, and Islamic art, including sculpture, painting, and calligraphy loaned from collections in the U.S., Europe, and India. Many of the objects have never been seen outside of India; in some cases they have never been exhibited or published anywhere. To provide a sense of the broad artistic contributions of this famously lush and beautiful region, the exhibition includes examples of stone and bronze sculptures and manuscript paintings, in addition to the fine examples of papier-mache, carpets, shawls, and embroidery for which Kashmir is renowned."--Publisher's website

A separate sphere : dressmakers in Cincinnati's golden age, 1877-1922 by Cynthia Amnéus( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dressmaking, considered a natural extension of women's proper work in the home, was a common and lucrative employment for women in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It afforded creative expression, prestige in the community, and even the possibility of financial independence. Yet as entrepreneurs, dressmakers faced unique business pressures, and with the advent of department stores and widespread mass production of women's clothing, most were forced out of business. Coinciding with the exhibition Cynthia Amnéus organized for the Cincinnati Art Museum, this work examines the nineteenth-century ideology of women's separate sphere, the early feminist movement, women in the workplace, and dressmakers as artisans and professionals. More than 140 stunning custom-made garments, historical photographs, and dressmakers' labels document the superb artistic and technical skill of the women who produced fashionable dress in Cincinnati from 1877 to 1922. Bracketing Amnéus's incisive study are essays by Anne Bissonnette on the eccentric tea gown, Marla Miller on the pitfalls of researching women's cultural work, and Shirley Teresa Wajda on the dressmakers' wealthy clientele. In all, A Separate Sphere offers a careful look into the lives of women struggling with ideological boundaries. Chronicling choices made by and imposed on both working-class women and their affluent counterparts, it reveals how these women managed to enhance their prescribed sphere for themselves and for the community at large
