John Singer Sargent by John Singer Sargent( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The remarkable portraits for which John Singer Sargent is most famous are only one aspect of a career that included landscapes, watercolors, figure subjects, and murals. Even within portraiture, his style ranged from bold experiments to studied formality. And the subjects of his paintings were as varied as his styles, including the leaders of fashionable society, rural laborers, city streets, remote mountains, and the front lines of World War I. This book surveys and evaluates the extraordinary range of Sargent's work, and reproduces 155 of his paintings in color. It accompanies a spectacular international exhibition - the first major retrospective of the artist's career since the memorial exhibitions that followed his death." "Richard Ormond presents a biographical sketch and, in a second essay, reviews Sargent's development as an artist. Mary Crowford Volk explores his thirty-year involvement with painting murals - in particular the works at the Boston Public Library and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts that Sargent regarded as his greatest achievement."--Jacket

Bonnard by Sarah Whitfield( Book )

20 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) is among the most enigmatic of the great masters of twentieth-century painting. In this book, Sarah Whitfield and John Elderfield bring a new understanding to his deeply serious, complex paintings." "Published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London, and at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Bonnard features two important essays based on much fresh research. Sarah Whitfield, curator of the exhibition, discusses the legacy of the Symbolism of Bonnard's early years and the way in which his acceptance of nature's surrender to time finds expression in the grand elegiac paintings of the later period. John Elderfield, curator of the exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, writes about Bonnard's awareness of the complexities of visual perception, and how crucial an understanding of this is to fully comprehending his stature as a painter."--Jacket

The Pre-Raphaelites by Tate Gallery( Book )

22 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pre-Raphaelites first appeared in 1984 as the catalogue of the highly successful exhibition mounted by the Tate Gallery that year. The book, which has been out of print ever since, remains the most comprehensive account of this important movement in British art. It concentrates on the vital years from 1848 (when the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was formed) to 1860 but also includes a substantial groups of works from the following twenty years, a period in which the movement took new directions. The full range of Pre-Raphaelite painting is represented, from the 'hard-edge' style of Millais's early work to the sensuousness of Rossetti's and Burne-Jones's painting in the 1870s."--Jacket

The art of Bloomsbury : Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell, and Duncan Grant by Richard Shone( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The word Bloomsbury most often summons the novels of Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster or images of artists and intellectuals debating the hot parlor topics of 1910s and 1920s London: literary aesthetics, agnosticism, defining truth and goodness, and the ideas of Bertrand Russell, A.N. Whitehead, and G.E. Moore. But the Bloomsbury Group also played a prominent role in the development of modernist painting in Britain. The work of artists Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, and their colleagues was often audacious and experimental, and proved to be one of the key influences on twentieth-century British art and design. This catalogue, published to accompany a major international exhibition of the Bloomsbury painters originating at the Tate Gallery in London and traveling to the Yale Center for British Art and the Huntington Art Gallery, provides a new look at the visual side of a movement that is more generally known for its literary production. It traces the artists' development over several decades and assesses their contribution to modernism. Catalogue entries on two hundred works, all illustrated in color, bring out the chief characteristics of Bloomsbury painting--domestic, contemplative, sensuous, and essentially pacific. These are seen in landscapes, portraits, and still lifes set in London, Sussex, and the South of France, as well as in the abstract painting and applied art that placed these artists at the forefront of the avant-garde before the First World War. Portraits of family and friends--from Virginia Woolf and Maynard Keynes to Aldous Huxley and Edith Sitwell--highlight the cultural and social setting of the group. Essays by leading scholars provide further insights into the works and the changing critical reaction to them, exploring friendships and relationships both within and outside of Bloomsbury, as well as the movement's wider social, economic, and political background

George Stubbs, 1724-1806 by George Stubbs( Book )

25 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stubbs was for too long under-valued by the label 'Mr. Stubbs the Horse Painter'. He is now recognized as deserving an equal place with his contemporaries Gainsborough and Reynolds in the foremost rank of British art. He is the most original and searching of all animal painters, whether his subject is a broodmare and foal, a monkey, or a poodle in a punt; he is also a realistic and perceptive portraitist of human beings, as much a master of the art of class distinction in eighteenth-century England as he is of the anatomy of the horse. Above all, he is a master of design, able to translate faithful observations from nature into unforgettable images. This is by far the most fully illustrated book on Stubbs available. All the works in Tate Gallery's George Stubbs exhibition of 1984-1985 are reproduced in colour, including some which have never before been reproduced, and focusing on many fascinating details in his work."--Provided by publisher
