George Inness and the visionary landscape by Adrienne Baxter Bell( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Inness and the Visionary Landscape includes forty color reproductions of Inness's most important paintings and presents both a chronological overview of Inness's life and a more focused treatment of the artist's main philosophical and religious preoccupations. Central to his thinking were the writings of the Swedish scientist-turned-visionary Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), who influenced many of Inness's contemporaries, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Walt Whitman. George Inness also suggests resonances between the artist's visionary landscapes and the concurrent efforts, on the part of the psychologist-philosopher William James (1842-1910), to validate the existence of mystical states of mind. It shows Inness to have anticipated many of the most important tenets of modernism, an achievement that continues to inspire contemporary audiences."--Jacket
Eastman Johnson : painting America by Teresa A Carbone( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important painters of the 19th century, Eastman Johnson (1824-1906) produced a number of canvases that now stand as icons of American art. Works like his Negro Life at the South (1859), Fiddling His Way (1866). Not at Home (ca. 1873), and The Cranberry Harvest, Island of Nantucket (1880) are remarkable both for their artistic originality and for what they suggest about American culture of the period.This comprehensive volume accompanies the first major museum retrospective devoted to Johnson in more than twenty-five years. Eastman Johnson: Painting America reproduces in color 104 works by Johnson along with 108 black-and-white comparative illustrations, making it the most complete source of reproductions of the artist's work
Black womanhood : images, icons, and ideologies of the African body by Barbara Thompson( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explorations of contemporary art have focused on issues of identity and race for some time. Few, however, have sought to investigate these themes by juxtaposing historical and contemporary frameworks. Black Womanhood examines an especially charged icon - the black female body - and contemporary artists' interventions upon historical images of black women as exotic Others, erotic fantasies, and supermaternal Mammies." "This book presents icons of the black female body as seen from three separate but intersecting perspectives: the traditional African, the colonial, and the contemporary global. The display and contemplation of such iconic images addresses complex and often competing forces of self-presentation and the representation of others. Peeling back layers of social, cultural, and political realities, Black Womanhood explores how historic icons inform contemporary artistic responses to the black female body through an examination of themes such as beauty, fertility and sexuality, maternity, and women's roles and power in society."--Jacket

Pacific Arcadia : images of California, 1600-1915 by Claire Perry( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated catalog presents a fascinating cultural history of an idyllic vision of California that still figures prominently in the American imagination. Currier and Ives lithographs and the work of early European cartographers are juxtaposed with photographs by Carleton E. Watkins, Arnold Genthe, and Eadweard Muybridge, and paintings by Albert Bierstadt, James Walker, and William Hahn, among others." "Perry investigates how and why this vision of a Pacific paradise was developed and marketed to the public, taking as her subject the images produced by early visitors and residents confronted by the peculiarities of California's landscape, the abundance of its natural resources, and the omnipresence of the vast Pacific."--Jacket

Coney Island : visions of an American dreamland, 1861-2008 by Robin Jaffee Frank( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Called "America's playground," Coney Island is a world-famous resort and national cultural symbol that has inspired music, literature, and films. This groundbreaking book is the first to look at the site's enduring status as inspiration for artists throughout the ages, from its inception as an elite seaside resort in the mid-19th century, to its evolution into an entertainment mecca for the masses, with the eventual closing of its iconic amusement park, Astroland, in 2008 after decades of urban decline. How artists chose to portray Coney Island between 1861 and 2008--in tableaux of wonder and menace, hope and despair, dreams and nightmares--mirrored the aspirations and disappointments of the era. This dazzling catalogue highlights more than 200 images from Coney Island's history, including paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, posters, film stills, architectural artifacts, and carousel animals. An extraordinary array of artists is represented, from George Bellows, William Merritt Chase, Reginald Marsh, and Joseph Stella to Diane Arbus, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Robert Frank, Red Grooms, Weegee, and Swoon. Essays by prominent scholars analyze Coney Island through its imagery and ephemera as both a place and an idea--one that reflected the collective soul of the nation."--Publisher's description

The art of music by Simon Shaw-Miller( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Art of music is a handsomely illustrated and rich interdisciplinary look at the mutual influence between music and the visual arts across cultures and eras. The book sheds new light on more familiar artists at the intersection of the visual and the musical, such as Wassily Kandinsky and Arnold Schoenberg, and presents new scholarship on less well-known examples in the arts of Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe, from antique pottery to contemporary video and sound art. Essays consider key works and themes such as synesthesia and other formal and theoretical crossovers, motifs of musicians, and performative and ritual functions of music, musical instruments, and art. With more than 250 color images illustrating works of art in diverse traditions, The Art of music offers enriching reading for scholars and general audiences alike."--Page 4 de la couverture
