Treasures of ancient Nigeria by Ekpo Eyo( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The magnificent art that is the heritage of Nigeria was, for the first time, presented to the world beyond Nigeria at the "Treasures of Ancient Nigeria - Legacy of Two Thousand Years" exhibit at The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the California Palace of the Legion of Honor from April 27 - June 29, 1980. This book is a record of that exhibit and what it represented. One hundred extraordinary works of art in bronze, terracotta, and ivory - works spanning more than two thousand years, from the fifth century B.C., and representing seven cultures (Nok, Igbo-Ukwu, Ife, Owo, Benin, Tsoede, and Esie) - were selected for exhibition in the United States and are shown here in 137 photographs and plates, 53 in full color. The introduction is by Dr. Ekpo Eyo, Director of Nigeria's Department of Antiquities and head of Nigeria's National Museums, and the interpretive text is by Frank Willett, who taught art and archaeology at Oxford and Northwestern Universities and was formerly an archaeologist for Nigeria's Department of Antiquities and Curator of the Museum of Ife Antiquities

Picasso and the war years, 1937-1945 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book draws upon new research and works that, in some cases, were held out of public view in Picasso's own collection to explore the critically important - but still under-studiedperiod of his life from the time of the Spanish Civil War through World War II and the Nazi occupation of France. This span of years is marked by some of the most intensely personal and expressive work of his long and diverse career." "This book is published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. It traces Picasso's responses to the cataclysm of war as manifested in a lengthy series of figure paintings, still lifes, portraits, and cityscapes, amplified by prints, drawings, and photographs, drawn from collections all around the world."--Jacket

Claude Lorrain--the painter as draftsman : drawings from the British Museum by Richard Rand( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great French artist Claude Lorrain (1600-1682) - for whom drawing was an integral part of the artistic process - spent most of his career in Italy, where he documented the beauty of the landscape and the splendor of classical ruins. This richly illustrated book examines the wide-ranging role the medium played throughout Claude's career. The book presents some of Claude's most remarkable drawings, representing all aspects of his style and subject matter - from informal outdoor sketches of trees, rivers, and ruins to formal presentation drawings and elaborate compositional designs for paintings, many of which have never before been reproduced in color. A detailed and scholarly essay places them within the social and cultural contexts of their time and includes comparative illustrations of paintings and etchings to situate them within the artist's oeuvre. A selection of works from the Liber Veritatis (Book of Truth), a portfolio of highly finished drawings that the artist created to document his own painted compositions, is also included
