Turner : the late seascapes by James Hamilton( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The English romantic painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is renowned for his sublime and dramatic landscapes and seascapes. The sea held a particular fascination for the artist, exemplified not only by the subject matter of many of his paintings but also by his own collection of ship models and personal experiences as an amateur sailor. This handsome book - written by Turner expert James Hamilton and published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition organized by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and Manchester City Galleries - focuses primarily on the artist's spectacular seascapes dating from the 1840s, the last decade of his illustrious career." "Turner: The Late Seascapes provides new and provocative insights into these powerful works, relating them to the artist's interest in poetry and drama as well as his curiousity about science, optics, and photography. Turner's extensive travels - which clearly fed his imagination and inspired his choice of subject matter - are explored in depth, as is the relationship between Turner's paintings and seventeenth-century Dutch precedents. Hamilton also examines the important role of the pendant in Turner's late art, arguing that his paired works have intentional associative narrative, stylistic, and chromatic meanings. In addition, the author traces the evolution of Turner's famous Whaling series, offering a new source for it, and examines Turner's captain Elisha Morgan and the English photographer John Mayall, both of which have been previously overlooked in the literature on the artist." "Including more than 90 examples of Turner's dramatic and lively marine pictures - 70 of which are reproduced in full color - this elegant book sheds fascinating new light on one of the world's most beloved artists."--Jacket
Black Victorians : black people in British art, 1800-1900 by Jan Marsh( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The black presence in Victorian art is greater than may be supposed. Indeed, the expanding art market in the nineteenth century was largely based on British prosperity resulting from imperial commerce and conquest. It can therefore be said that Victorian art owes its existence to those who are relatively absent from its images. Black Victorians brings together over 100 images depicting black figures, to reveal the diversity of representation within nineteenth-century visual culture and to foreground the 'forgotten' presence of people of African descent in Victorian British art. The range of images is broad, from pictures of soldiers and sailors in Britain's armed forces and men and women in genre scenes to portraits of entertainers and political refugees and studies of artists' models. Notable individuals featured include actor Ira Aldridge, Crimean heroine Mary Seacole, the Queen's god-daughter Sarah Bonetta Davies, composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and Abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass. In addition to the fine arts of painting, drawing and sculpture, the selection includes photography, popular illustration, caricature and ephemera, which provide a cultural context for the portraits and subject pictures, as well as presenting black figures as members of British society in everyday settings. Many major artists of the period are represented, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, Edward Burne-Jones, Julia Margaret Cameron, Edgar Degas and J. A. M. Whistler. Many works are virtually unknown and collected here for the first time. Presenting an important opportunity to see and assess how black figures have been portrayed in British art, Black Victorians is an original and fascinating survey of a subject that has been given little coverage to date. It is essential reading for anyone wishing to seek a fresh perspective on a well-documented period of British history."--Book jacket
Angels of anarchy : women artists and surrealism by Patricia Allmer( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive and up-to-date survey available about women Surrealists features an outstanding array of artists from the early twentieth century to modern times. Surrealism, and in particular its women practitioners, has undergone a resurgence of interest in the past decade as evidenced by numerous exhibitions in the world's leading museums. Now, 90 years after the birth of Surrealism, comes the most comprehensive study yet of the women who contributed so much to this fascinating movement. Angels of Anarchy reconsiders the art-historical tradition of women Surrealists. It draws on an international range of artists to investigate how their practices responded to, developed, enriched, and even subverted the conventions and traditions of art history. One hundred colour images by thirty artists are accompanied by essays that illuminate fascinating aspects of the Surrealist approach. By presenting these important artists side-by-side for the first time, Angels of Anarchy allows for an unprecedented appreciation of the variety and depth of these artists' contributions to the field of Surrealism and art in general
