The American renaissance, 1876-1917 by Brooklyn Museum( Book )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and Malay and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Underlying the American Renaissance was a desire to take selected elements of American and Western history and recombine them in new, eclectic ways in order to create a new American heritage that would provide a backdrop against which the pageant of a great civilization of the future could be staged. One of the intents of the American Renaissance was the unification of all the arts into one creative amalgamation that would encompass painting, sculpture, the decorative arts, architecture, and the setting, whether the garden or an urban landscape, as a unit. This book examines the various elements that went to make such a coherent aesthetic statement
America & Lewis Hine : photographs 1904-1940 by Lewis Wickes Hine( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hine's dynamic images changed the way Americans looked at social conditions. Hine put his life on the line to capture a truthful picture of people at work. He risked physical attack in order to expose the brutal exploitation of child labor; then, years later, he had himself suspended from the hundredth floor of the Empire State Building to preserve on film the workers who were in the process of erecting it. Never content merely to depict labor's dehumanizing features, Hine shows us the dignity of work, the workers dominate the instruments of their labor-- the open hearths, mine pits, shovels, tongs and trolleys. Only a consummate camera-artist could have made such pictures, with their poignant qualities of light and shadow, their inescapable presence: all the more remarkable when we consider his cumbersome instrument-- a tripod-mounted 5 x 7 view camera with slides, flash pan, and powder

Soul of a nation : art in the age of Black power by Mark Godfrey( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the period of radical change that was 1963-1983, young black artists at the beginning of their careers in the USA confronted key questions and pressures. How could they make art that would stand as innovative, original, formally and materially complex, while also making work that reflected their concerns and experience as black Americans? This significant new publication, accompanying an exhibition at Tate Modern, surveys this crucial period in American art history, bringing to light previously neglected histories of twentieth-century black artists, including Sam Gilliam, Melvin Edwards, Jack Whitten, William T. Williams and Frank Bowling. This book features substantial essays from co-curators Mark Godfrey and Zoe Whitley, writing on abstraction and figuration respectively. It will also explore the art historical and social contexts with subjects including black feminism; AfriCOBRA and other artist-run groups; the role of museums in the debates of the period; and where visual art sat in relation to the Black Arts Movement

Basquiat by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and French and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Brooklyn in 1960, Jean-Michel Basquiat lived to the age of only twenty-seven. His meteoric career as an artist had lasted no more than eight years. The one-time teenage runaway and high-school dropout was first included in a group exhibition in 1980, and almost immediately knew considerable success, enjoying his first solo exhibition just two years later. Basquiat quickly became a notable figure on the international art scene, mixing with dealers and artists. Among these was Andy Warhol, with whom he established a close working relationship." "Borrowing from graffiti and street imagery, cartoons, mythology and religious symbolism, Basquiat's drawings and paintings explore issues of race and identity, providing social commentary that is both shrewdly observed and biting. Characterized by their intensely personal nature and the raw, almost aggressive handling of paint, these works have an enduring power to move and to confound." "Viewing the heady world of the 1980s art scene from the beginning of a new century, we are able to look at Basquiat's achievements with increasing objectivity. Rather than explore his persona, this book aims to demonstrate the lasting quality of Basquiat's work itself, as well as its uniqueness within modern art. It strives not only to reevaluate his principal works, but also to explain Basquiat's continuing interest as a major painter."--Jacket

Here are prime examples of stone and wood sculpture; wall painting; statuettes in bronze, terracotta, and faience; a mummy case; a painted and gilded wood coffin; jewelry in gold, stone and faience; and vessels and utensils in bronze, glass, and stone.

Objects of myth and memory : American Indian art at the Brooklyn Museum by Diana Fane( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first decade of the 20th century, the Brooklyn Museum set the standard for the acquisition and display of Native American art. In many ways, this book is a tribute to Stewart Culin, the museum's founding Curator of Ethnology, who remains legendary in the field for his enlightened acquisition of thousands of American Indian objects for Brooklyn's collection. The book's layout is excellent, beginning with an analysis and appreciation of the work of Culin and followed by examples and photographs of his early displays at the Brooklyn Museum. Four sections follow in a geographical breakdown of Indian art and the societies that produced it. The excellent Brooklyn collections are mostly in color and join the text in creating a fine catalog of Indian craft that is art. Recommended for academic, museum, and public library collections."--Library Journal viewed on June 24, 2020

The dinner party : from creation to preservation by Judy Chicago( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judy Chicago's internationally acclaimed installation The Dinner Party is a monumental work of art conceived as a symbolic history of women in Western civilization. Strategically countering the traditional erasure of women's achievements, this epic work honors 1038 iconic, mythical, archetypal, and historical women. This, the most definitive book to be published on Chicago's masterwork, reveals the visual and intellectual scope of the installation more fully than ever before, supported by new photography, documentary images, and the artist's expanded research into the history of the women represented. Chicago begins by discussing the creative genesis of The Dinner Party, the dynamism of her collaborative approach to art-making, and the technical processes involved. Mirroring the structure of the installation, the book then divides into three beautifully illustrated "wings," or sections, covering from prehistory to the twentieth century. These explore the remarkable lives of the thirty-nine women symbolically represented as "guests of honor" at The Dinner Party, and of the 999 other women honored in the work. To conclude, Chicago reflects on the work's early--often hostile--reception in the art world and the political arena, as well as the subsequent, decades-long struggle for its preservation and permanent exhibition. At the heart of The Dinner Party is the belief that, by understanding the legacy of women's achievements, women's perceptions of themselves can be transformed. This definitive accompaniment to Chicago's installation continues its purpose and introduces the work to a new generation interested in the relationship between art, culture, and gender politics." -- Publisher's description
