Charles Sheeler, paintings and drawings by Carol Troyen( Book )

10 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Sheeler (1883-1965) was one of the pioneer modern artists in America, and the only one whose achievements were equally significant in painting and photography. His best-known subjects celebrate twentieth-century America; at the same time, his work has important links to nineteenth-century American landscape and folk art"--Jacket

Avant-garde : experimental cinema of the 1920s and '30s by Bret Wood( Visual )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century
Charles Sheeler : across media by Charles Brock( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Sheeler (1883-1965) is recognized as one of the founders of American modernism and one of the master photographers of the twentieth century. His work is synonymous with precisionism, a crisp, clean, hard-edged style that reconciled cubist abstraction and the machine aesthetic of Marcel Duchamp with American subject matter. Trained in industrial drawing, decorative painting, and applied art at the School of Industrial Art in Philadelphia, Sheeler also attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he learned an impressionistic, painterly style. He later embraced European modernism and taught himself photography. Sheeler fully absorbed the lessons of each discipline and forged his own singular approach." "This beautifully illustrated book, created to accompany a traveling exhibition of Sheeler's work, features detailed analyses of the artist's mediums and working methods. Focusing on the complex, often paradoxical, relationships among photography, film, drawing, printmaking, and painting that were central to Sheeler's art, this pathbreaking book traces critical points in Sheeler's trajectory, beginning with a small selection of Sheeler's seminal photographs, circa 1917, of the interior of an eighteenth-century Quaker fieldstone house in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Sections are also devoted to the 1920 film Manhatta, made in collaboration with Paul Strand; a series of commercial photographs of the Ford Motor Company's River Rogue factory (1927); the enigmatic painting The Artist Looks at Nature (1943) and its related works; and finally a group of mill subjects from the 1940s and 1950s that experiments with photomontage."--Jacket

The photography of Charles Sheeler : American modernist by Theodore E Stebbins( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph presents the often-overlooked photographic work of Charles Sheeler. It opens with his Cubist-inspired architectural images of the 1910s, moves on to the highly abstract nude studies and dramatic New York City views from around 1920, and culminates in the series devoted to the Ford Motor Company's River Rouge plant in 1927, a project that established modern industrial iconography. Also featured are his stunning images of the Chartres cathedral done in 1929 and images of American industry made for Fortune magazine in 1939. Freely experimenting with the possibilities of the medium, Sheeler paved the way for other innovative photographers such as Walker Evans. This volume also investigates the links between the photographer and the painter Charles Sheeler - as he employed both media in the process of visual creation."--Jacket

PICTURING A METROPOLIS is part of the film retrospective UNSEEN CINEMA that explores long-forgotten American experimental cinema. Artists/photographers Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand created one of the earliest achievements of 20th century film modernism. This expressive film resonates a grand passion for New York City and visualizes selected passages of Walt Whitman's poetic text. --BRUCE POSNER Strand and Sheeler's only film collaboration was the first consciously produced avant-garde U.S. film and a model for subsequent "city films, though it was released as a New York "scenic" of lower Manhattan. A modernist work, the film demonstrates a romantic subtext in its Whitmanesque inter-titles and narrative construction. -- JAN-CHRISTOPHER HORAK Born into wealth, Charles Sheeler became an artist in the 1910s, creating "Precisionist" paintings that looked like photographs and sharply realist photographs that won numerous prizes. Apart from several attempts at filmmaking, Manhatta was his only film work, but his oil painting "Church Street El' "(1920) among other paintings and photographs are renditions from the film. --JAN-CHRISTOPHER HORAK. One of America's most famous art photographers, Paul Strand's career spanned 60 years

Manhatta : a study of the modern Babylon-on-the-Hudson [new music by Donald Sosin]( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1920, photographer Paul Strand and painter-photographer Charles Sheeler, who had acquired a French 35mm Debrie movie camera, collaborated on a short non-commercial art film, no titled Manhatta. They began to shoot in lower Manhattan, working without scenario or script. Many of the scenes were made from the upper floors of skyscrapers in order to emphasize the geometric character of the city's architecture and to suggest the ant-like character of its population. In their press release, Strand wrote that they had tried to "register directly the living forms in front of them and reduce [them] through rigid selection ... to their most intensest [sic] terms of expressiveness ..." to capture the "elusive spirit" of New York, without resorting to "artifice or photographic trickery". 2K restoration from 35 mm 1.33:1 black & white silent 16 fps; new music by Donald Sosin
