American sublime : landscape painting in the United States, 1820-1880 by Andrew Wilton( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The painters who came to be known as the Hudson River School -Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Frederic Edwin Church, Jasper Cropsey, Sanford Robinson Gifford, and others - found inspiration in our young country's natural wonders and were the first to paint many of its still-wild vistas. As America was settled and the wilderness receded, their successors - most notably Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran - carried their quest for the sublime to the Far West, communicating its breathtaking grandeur in brilliant views of Rocky Mountain peaks, roaring waterfalls, and vast canyons. Within a single generation these artists established the dramatic approach to American landscape painting that is celebrated in this stirringly beautiful book. The freshness of their vision, the intensity of their invention, and the energy of their execution were all born of the urgency these artists sensed in the life of America itself. Published to accompany a major transatlantic exhibition, American Sublime rejoices in America the Beautiful as seen in some of the country's most glorious landscape paintings. It contains a fully illustrated catalogue of all the paintings in the exhibition, with more than one hundred color plates, including three gatefolds. Biographies of the artists are included, and thoughtful and elegantly written essays cast new light on their ambitions and achievements. The lucid text places American landscape painting in the context of the international art world and of the European landscape tradition. And it explores ideas of national identity and empire in America, looking in particular at how these landscapes, whether real or imagined, reflect Americans' hopes and fears for their country. As a tribute to some of our most important American artists and the land that inspired them, this stunningly illustrated book will have a deep and wide appeal

Alfred Stieglitz's Camera notes by Christian A Peterson( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Camera Notes was the most significant American photographic periodical of its time. Published quarterly by the Camera Club of New York and edited by Alfred Stieglitz, the fountainhead of American Art Photography, it represented a critical phase in the campaign to legitimize the photo image as an artistic pursuit. Throughout most of its six-year life (1897-1903) the publication included thoughtful articles on photography as fine art as well as hundreds of halftone images and stunning high-quality photogravures. While much has been written on Stieglitz's life and many endeavors, including his later publication Camera Work, little attention has been given to Camera Notes." "This striking volume details the history of Camera Notes and its influence on the photographic world. It reproduces in their original tones all 91 of the beautiful photogravures that appeared during the journal's life. In addition, it contains a fully illustrated index of the more than 250 halftones that appeared on its pages."--Jacket
Fakes and forgeries : [catalogue of an exhibition] the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, July 11-September 29, 1973 by Minneapolis Institute of Arts( Book )

19 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Fakes, Forgeries, and Other Deceptions,' a unique show organized by Samuel Sachs II, acting director of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, was exhibited in 1973 and was the first such exhibit of fakes and forgeries by a major museum in over 20 years. The catalogue includes over 240 forgeries and originals in styles from ancient art to the present. Some of the forgeries are so outrageously bad that even an untrained eye can detect the original; but more often the fakes are subtle and convincing, and in these instances modern technology, x-ray analysis, spectroscopic examination, and pigment comparison have been necessary to separate the fakes from the originals. The truly education character of both the exhibition and the catalogue lies in Mr. Sachs' learned and lively comparisons between the genuine and the fake, and both are juxtaposed on the same page with accompanying text."--Front book jacket flap
The surreal Calder by Alexander Calder( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is a key presence in the history of modern art, and yet he is rarely seen or remembered in the context from which he initially emerged as an artist. When Calder became "Calder"--Well known for his signature mobiles and stabiles-it was due to a unique variety of presiding influences. His artistic parentage consisted of Marcel Duchamp, who provided the name of and concept for the mobile; Piet Mondrian, who introduced pure abstraction to him; and Joan Miro, who communicated the central theses of Surrealism. Although Calder went on to play a major role in Surrealist manifestations during the formative years of the movement, including being shown in the defining 1936 "Exposition surrealiste d'objets" in Paris, he has since been separated from those beginnings. Indeed, at this point in time, Calder is never included in exhibitions of Surrealist art, even though he was incubated by that phenomenon and contributed mightily to it. This book will put the artist back in midst of Surrealism so that his achievement is more profoundly understood within that context. Works by artists such as Miro, Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, and Rene Magritte will delineate the Surrealist milieu and some of its chief aspects. The following theses are also explored: Calder's wit, caricature, and linear flights of fancy; his marvelous personages and fantastic creatures; biomorphic forms from an imaginary vision of nature; and his constellations, apparent views of celestial space

Jim Dine prints, 1985-2000 : a catalogue raisonné by Elizabeth Carpenter( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jim Dine ranks among the greatest artists of the twentieth century and the present day. He entered the New York art world to great acclaim with his Happenings and mixed media assemblages in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Although commonly associated with the Pop art movement of the 1960s, Dine's work pertains more to his lifelong search for the self and for insights into what it means to be human. He has continued to work unceasingly for over four centuries, producing paintings, sculpture, prints, and photographs." "This illustrated catalogue raisonne provides detailed information on 198 prints, 10 livres d'artiste, and 4 portfolios. Essays by Elizabeth Carpenter and Joseph Ruzicka give context to Dine's graphic work since 1985 and offer new insights based on conversations with the artist and his printers and collaborators. Joseph Ruzicka presents a historical and critical overview of Dine's print work and examines the genesis and evolution of Dine's familiar motifs through detailed analysis of individual images. Elizabeth Carpenter demonstrates how Dine's livres d'artiste integrate his performances, visual art, and poetry with his love of literature. The catalogue also includes a selected exhibition history, a glossary of printmaking terms germane to Dine's practice, and a selected print bibliography, all reflecting the most current research on this major figure in American printmaking."--Jacket
Georgia O'Keeffe : circling around abstraction by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: One of America's most innovative and popular artists, Georgia O'Keeffe is rightfully celebrated as a pioneer who worked in her own style and on her own terms. Perhaps O'Keeffe's most significant contribution to art history was her unique approach to abstraction. From her groundbreaking charcoal drawings of 1915 to her final paintings from the 1970s over the course of a career spanning more than seven decades Georgia O'Keeffe consistently incorporated swirling circular forms into her compositions. Her innovative use of this motif as a means of abstraction stands in contrast to the strategies adopted by many of her peers, which tended to be Cubist-based, using straight lines and angles rather than curves and circles. Using the circle and its kin-the ellipse, the oval, the spiral, and the arcing line-O'Keeffe explored the shifting terrain between abstraction and representation, sometimes calling upon them forms to represent a mood, a reaction to a sensation, or the spiritual essence of a subject

Beauty, honor and tradition : the legacy of Plains Indian shirts by Joseph D Horse Capture( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beauty, Honor, and Tradition: The Legacy of Plains Indian Shirts represents a powerful collaboration between two great museums - the National Museum of the American Indian/Smithsonian Institution, and The Minneapolis Institute of Arts - and two curators, father and son members of the A'aninin Indian Tribe of Montana. George P. Horse Capture, and his son, Joseph D. Horse Capture, bring different insights to this project as they explore new relationships among the shirts, the shirtmakers, the historians and scholars, and the audience of Indians and non-Indians alike."--Jacket

Peter Henry Emerson and American naturalistic photography by Christian A Peterson( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Henry Emerson (1856-1936) was a leading English photographer who spearheaded a style he termed "naturalistic photography." He argued for photography as a fine art, encouraged his colleagues to use nature as their standard, and introduced the theory of "differential focusing," whereby the main subject was in focus and everything else fell into moderate softness." "Many young Americans admired Emerson's work, forming a movement of naturalistic photography in this country that lasted from the 1890s to about 1930. Like Emerson, they emphasized the beauty of Mother Nature and humankind's harmony with her, photographing the land in all its seasons. Among the photographers whose work is included are Edward S. Curtis, Rudolf Eickemeyer, Alfred Stieglitz, and Doris Ulman."--Jacket
