Inventing Acadia : artists and tourists at Mount Desert by Pamela J Belanger( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, Acadia National Park is one of the nation's most popular national parks, visited by over three million people annually. But in the mid-1800s, Mount Desert Island was a remote and inhospitable wilderness. Its discovery by visiting artists such as Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, and Sanford Gifford, and its promotion through their paintings and in prints, travel books, and photographs, began a transformation of its landscape into scenic representations that became symbols of national identity. A visual culture created by these and other artists of the period established new picturesque travel destinations, resulting in the emergence of a new tourist class stimulated by a belief in the transcendent value of the wilderness experience and an appreciation of landscape."--Amazon
Robert Indiana and the Star of Hope by John Wilmerding( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps best known for his iconic paintings and sculptures of LOVE, also featured on a u.s. postage stamp, and HOPE, created in support of Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, Robert Indiana (b. 1928) has been living and working in Maine since 1978. The Star of Hope, his yearround home and studio on the island of Vinalhaven, is a former late nineteenth-century Odd Fellows lodge listed on the National Register of Historic Places." "Robert Indiana and the Star of Hope is both a retrospective of the artist's work based on his own holdings, and an unprecedented study of his living and working space. His studio is a home, museum, archive, and gallery, all set within the historic interiors of the former Odd Fellows lodge. This book offers a unique examination of how Indiana's work has unfolded since his move to Vinalhaven and includes works from his student days to storied sculptures such as EAT, prematurely removed from the 1964 New York World's Fair and not exhibited since."--BOOK JACKET

Alex Katz in Maine by Alex Katz( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alex Katz is one of the most influential painters of our era. Having come of age in the 1950s alongside the New York School of painters and poets, he has impacted generations of artists with his iconic images. Best known for his emotionally ambiguous and psychologically complex portraits of cosmopolitan friends and colleagues from the New York art world, he is also admired for his bold, transcendent landscape paintings and his coolly intimate portraits of friends and family - often painted in Maine, where Katz has summered since 1954. Many of Katz's most poetic, melancholy and slyly humorous works have their settings in or near Lincolnville, Maine, and are reproduced here in conjunction with the Farnsworth Art Museum's summer 2005 exhibition. The topic of Maine in Katz's work is examined in depth for the first time, in an essay by art critic Sanford Schwartz. Also included are texts by Suzette McAvoy, the exhibition's curator, and Vincent Katz, the artist's son."--BOOK JACKET
