John Singer Sargent by John Singer Sargent( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,285 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

Willem de Kooning : paintings by Marla Prather( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of America's greatest painters, Willem de Kooning is a masterful colourist whose huge canvases are charged with enormous energy. The publication of this beautiful book, which presents eighty of de Kooning's finest paintings and painted works on paper from the early 1940s to the 1980s, coincides with the artist's ninetieth birthday in the spring of 1994. Organized thematically and chronologically, the book focuses on de Kooning's most noteworthy and original painted achievements: portraits from the early 1940s; black-and-white abstractions from 1945 to 1949 that established de Kooning as a leader of the abstract expressionist movement; monumental cityscape paintings from 1949 and 1950; key selections from the notorious Woman series of 1945 to 1954; highway and pastoral landscape abstractions from 1954 to 1960; lush figures in landscapes from 1966 to 1973; landscapes from the 1970s; and later expressive and calligraphic "tableaux." Drawing on new archival sources, essays by David Sylvester, Richard Shiff, and Marla Prather reassess de Kooning's critical status, examine his complex and evocative painting techniques, place him in the context of other artists and art movements of his era, and discuss the fundamental impact of his art on subsequent generations. The book serves as the catalogue for a major retrospective of de Kooning's work that will be on exhibit at the National Gallery of Art in Washington from 8 May 1994 to 5 September 1994, the Metropolitan Museum in New York from 6 October 1994 to 8 January 1995, and the Tate Gallery in London from 15 February 1995 to 7 May 1995

Bonnard by Pierre Bonnard( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,020 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

Late Picasso : paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, 1953-1972 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

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

20 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 809 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
Max Ernst : a retrospective by Max Ernst( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in 3 languages and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Ernst (1891-1976) is one of the few incontrovertibly great artists of the twentieth century. This book provides a unique opportunity of assessing Max Ernst's achievement. The extensive plate section includes works in all medias and genres -- painting, sculpture, works on paper, book illustration -- and from all periods of the artist's career. In his introductory essay, Werner Spies reviews the artist's oeuvre, pointing to certain basic attitudes and procedures that informed all his work. Essays by other well-known scholars discuss the symbolism of his Surrealist imagery, the influence of Romanticism and of the North American Indians on his work, and his ties with England. Max Ernst's own 'Biographical Note', lavishly illustrated with documentary photographs and further examples of his work, and interspersed with other writings by the artist, provide profound and fascinating insights into his life and art. "Max Ernst: A Retrospective" is an indispensable volume on the life and art of one of the few truly international artists of the twentieth century. -- From publisher's description
On classic ground : Picasso, Léger, de Chirico, and the new classicism, 1910-1930 by Elizabeth Cowling( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

18 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 621 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

Ellsworth Kelly : a retrospective by Ellsworth Kelly( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive monograph - published on the occasion of the first complete retrospective of Kelly's work since 1973, organized at the Guggenheim Museum by Diane Waldman, the museum's Deputy Director and Senior Curator - is a definitive investigation of Kelly's career, from his earliest works to the present. Waldman, author of numerous monographs on Modern and contemporary art, has brought together more than 399 of Kelly's most important paintings, sculptures, and works on paper (including several that have never been published): early abstract paintings and reliefs; figurative drawings; collages; photographs; paintings featuring a synthesis of biomorphic and geometric form; single-panel and multipanel paintings; shaped panels; and many of his sculptures, including the first two (from 1959) through the most recent (from 1996). her essay - an overview of Kelly's entire career - and four additional essays on various aspects of his oeuvre by Roberta Bernstein, Carter Ratcliff, Mark Rosenthal, and Clare Bell (plus a Chronology, Exhibition History, and Bibliography) explain the important relationships among his works in various mediums, and reveal why and how Kelly has produced some of the most distinctive art of our time

The Pre-Raphaelites by Tate Gallery( Book )

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years there have been excellent one-man exhibitions of the major Pre-Raphaelite artists but no really comprehensive exhibition has ever been devoted to Pre-Raphaelite painting as such. In mounting the present exhibition we have tried to bring together as many as possible of the essential works of the movement so as to give a more complete account than has been possible in the past. The strictly chronological arrangement we have adopted affords a unique opportunity to examine the changing affinities and divisions between the protagonists of Pre-Raphaelitism, as well as allowing us to re-unite paintings by different artists which were first shown together in the exhibitions of the time." -- Foreword
