Sun, wind, and rain : the art of David Cox by David Cox( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The watercolor Sun, Wind, and Rain, painted in 1845, typifies the concerns with representing light and atmosphere and weather that lie at the heart of David Cox's landscape art. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1783, Cox was destined to become a major figure in the linked worlds of landscape painting and watercolor painting in the first half of the nineteenth century. No significant study of the artist has been undertaken in more than a century. This illustrated volume focuses attention on Cox, filling in the details of his biography and illuminating his contributions to British landscape painting." "Scott Wilcox investigates Cox's artistic identity and his legacy. Other essays address such topics as Birmingham's cultural milieu; myths about Cox's life; the papers he chose; his painting in oils; and the fakes, forgeries, and misattributions that have challenged attempts to identify his oeuvre with certainty."--Jacket

Peter DeWint, 1784-1849 : 'for the common observer of life and nature' by Peter DeWint( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing together up-to-date scholarship, Peter DeWint 1784-1849: 'For the common observer of life and nature' re-presents and re-evaluates the artist and his work, so offering a reassessment of his approach to painting and his contribution to British art history. This book seeks to locate DeWint within the changing attitudes and ideas in painting of the period and to highlight how key historical changes such as agrarian reform helped shape his career. It also reveals hitherto neglected facets of the painter's work including his interest in architectural subjects, his use of Creswick papers and his post-humous reputation. Featuring a full reprint of his wife's memoir, Peter DeWint 1784-1849: 'For the common observer of life and nature' will provide a major reappraisal of the artist's life and career."--Jacket
