The lives, loves, and art of Arthur B. Davies by Bennard B Perlman( )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on extensive archival research, including previously unavailable letters and diaries, this book covers the breadth and depth of the artist's life and career, from his boyhood in Utica in the 1860s; through his close association with such artists and collectors as Robert Henri, John Sloan, Alfred Stieglitz, Lizzie Bliss, and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller; to his death in Italy in 1928 in the company of his mistress, with whom he had lived a secret double life as "David A. Owen" for more than twenty years. Included are 101 color and black-and-white illustrations of Davies's own work, ranging from romantic dream visions to fragmented cubist forms, as well as photographs depicting his family and friends
American artists, authors, and collectors : the Walter Pach letters, 1906-1958 by Bennard B Perlman( )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As an artist, author, critic, consultant, teacher, and museum lecturer, Walter Pach was instrumental in shaping America's attitudes toward modern art during the first half of the twentieth century. In American Artists, Authors, and Collectors, Bennard Perlman offers selections from Pach's lifelong correspondence with such important figures as Marcel Duchamp, Alfred Stieglitz, Arthur B. Davies, Walter Arensberg, Duncan Phillips, and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. The letters' range, as well as their content, reveal the extent of Pach's influence and provide insight into a significant era in the development and emergence of American art as a world force. Also included are an introduction and overview of Pach's life, as well as headnotes on each correspondent and footnotes that illuminate and explain items of interest in each of the letters."--Jacket
The immortal eight : American painting from Eakins to the Armory show, 1870-1913 by Bennard B Perlman( Book )

14 editions published between 1962 and 1983 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Around the turn of the century, American art was at a low ebb. Painting was in a hopeless state of nothingness. Sentimental landscapes were produced by the hundreds with little resemblance to the American scene. The established art world showed little of the vitality that marked the rambunctious growth of a nation in the throes of establishing a great free enterprise social order. In Philadelphis and later, New York, artistic rebellion grew up around a group of talented artist-reporters who painted the world as they saw it, in all its beauty and grim reality. The Realist or Ashcan School of Art was born. At first, the Realist painters were despised and rejected because of their choice of subjects -- burlesque houses, Bower bars, bedrooms, ragged urchins and dingy street scenes. But the biting truth of the Realists' pictorial observations could not be denied. The artists' determination to freely exhibit their art became a virtual battle for survival. This is the true story of the men in the forefront of the struggle to establish the first truly American tendency in art"--Front flap
