Overcoming all obstacles : the women of the Académie Julian by N.Y.) Dahesh Museum of Art (New York( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Academie Julian is the first book to examine late nineteenth-century Paris's most famous training ground for the leading women artists of the period. The Academie Julian was founded in Paris in 1868, initially to prepare students for entry to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the nineteenth century's preeminent art school. Because women could not study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts until 1897, Julian itself became an international equivalent for many of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century's most important women artists." "Not only does Overcoming All Obstacles introduce the reader to many works by women artists - both famous and lesser known - but the essays offer a cultural and historical context in which to appreciate their art."--Jacket
The changing garden : four centuries of European and American art by Betsy G Fryberger( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautifully illustrated volume examines the garden as an enduring and evolving cultural resource, in two hundred works by more than one hundred artists. Prints, drawings, photographs, and paintings illuminate the changing aesthetics and uses of gardens from the powerful Medici dynasty's villas in sixteenth-century Florence and Louis XIV's royal showcase at Versailles to such democratic urban parks as New York City's Central Park and San Francisco's Crissy Field, adapted from a former military base."--Jacket

The Craft of art : originality and industry in the Italian Renaissance and baroque workshop by Andrew Ladis( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of nine essays some of the preeminent art historians in the United States consider the relationship between art and craft, between the creative idea and its realization, in Renaissance and Baroque Italy. The essays, all previously unpublished, are devoted to the pictorial arts and are accompanied by nearly 150 illustrations. Examining works by such artists as Michelangelo, Titian, Volterrano, Giovanni di Paolo, and Annibale Carracci (along with aspects of the artists' creative processes, work habits, and aesthetic convictions), the essayists explore the ways in which art was conceived and produced at a time when collaboration with pupils, assistants, or independent masters was an accepted part of the artistic process

Augusta Savage : Renaissance woman by Jeffreen M Hayes( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a timely, visual, exploration of the fascinating life and lasting legacy of sculptor Augusta Savage (1892-1962), who overcame poverty, racism, and sexual discrimination to become one of America's most influential twentieth-century artists. Her story is one of community-building, activism, and art education.0Born just outside Jacksonville, Florida, Savage left the South to pursue new opportunities and opened a studio in Harlem, New York City, offering free art classes. She co-founded the Harlem Artists' Guild in 1935 and became the first director of the federally-supported Harlem Community Art Center. Through her leadership there, Savage played an instrumental role in the development of many artists: William Artis, Gwendolyn Knight, Gwendolyn Bennett, Norman Lewis, Jacob Lawrence, Robert Blackburn, Romare Bearden, among many others.0This ground-breaking volume features fifty works by Savage, and those she mentored or influenced, as well as correspondence and period photographs.00Exhibition: Cummer Museum of Art, Jacksonville, USA (12.10.2018-07.04.2019)

John Rogers : American stories( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Rogers (1829-1904) is arguably the most popular American sculptor ever, selling over 80,000 small plasters, known as 'Rogers Groups' over the course of a career that spanned the late nineteenth century. Rogers himself said, 'I want each group to tell a story', and these narrative sculptures carried on a deeply rooted popular American genre tradition that was established in the antebellum period by painters such as William Sidney Mount and George Caleb Bingham. The book, illustrated and containing eleven essays on different aspects of his work (including its Neoclassical elements influences and the mass market it found), aims to bring Rogers' work to life for a new generation of admirers
