Walker Evans : a biography by Belinda Rathbone( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and German and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first full biography of the enigmatic artist, a leading national authority on Evans brilliantly penetrates the calculated anonymity of his work to reveal the obsessions behind it. A man in love with Americana, Evans was a sensualist, a junk collector, a connoisseur, a wit, a perpetual weekend guest. Charismatic and seductive, he attracted many of the brightest talents of his day. He counted Hart Crane, James Agee, Lincoln Kirstein, Ben Shahn, and Berenice Abbott among his closest friends, and with them he reveled in the intellectual and sexual freedom that distinguished the New York art world during his lifetime. Evans loved nothing better than a good party, and he attended all the best ones in the half-century from the 1920s to the 1970s. A social chameleon, he was as much at ease in bohemian Greenwich Village as in the heady West Side circle that included Robert Penn Warren, Lionel Trilling, and Alfred Kazin. Belinda Rathbone interviewed more than a hundred friends and colleagues of Evans' as well as his two former wives, and combed archives and letters to illuminate his singular vision and the complex personality Evans so carefully withheld from his photographs. The result is a portrait not only of an artist who profoundly influenced the generation of photographers who followed him but also of the artistically fecund times that nurtured him
Two lives : Georgia O'Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz : a conversation in paintings and photographs by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photography historian Belinda Rathbone, the author of a forthcoming biography of the American photographer Walker Evans, looks at the couple's life together from the perspective of Stieglitz who, at the age of fifty-two, was thoroughly rejuvenated when Georgia entered his life. Art historian Elizabeth Hutton Turner examines the relationship from O'Keeffe's point of view. She portrays how a gifted but inexperienced artist came into Stieglitz's world at the age of twenty-nine and in a short space of time evolved from apprentice to collaborator and finally to a leading artist in her own right. As Associate Curator at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., Dr. Turner organized the traveling exhibition that accompanies this book." "Two Lives reproduces the work of both artists with the stunning quality and fidelity for which Callaway books are known. Together, the reproductions and the three essays form a unique account of two lives and two artists."--Jacket

The Boston Raphael : a mysterious painting, an embattled museum in an era of change & a daughter's search for the truth by Belinda Rathbone( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The riveting story of a museum director caught in a web of local and international intrigue while secretly pursuing a forgotten Renaissance painting-the Boston Raphael. On the eve of its centennial celebrations in December, 1969, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts announced the acquisition of an unknown and uncatalogued painting attributed to Raphael. Boston's coup made headlines around the world. Soon afterward, an Italian art sleuth began investigating the details of the painting's export from Italy, challenging the museum's right to ownership. Simultaneously, experts on both sides of the Atlantic lined up to debate its very authenticity. While these contests played themselves out on the international stage, the crisis deepened within the museum as its charismatic director, Perry T. Rathbone, faced the most challenging crossroads of his thirty-year career. The Boston Raphael was a media sensation in its time, but the full story of the forces that converged on the museum and how they intersected with the challenges of the Sixties is now revealed in full detail by the director's daughter. In her quest for the true story behind this pivotal event in her father's life, Belinda Rathbone digs into the background of the affair as it was reported in the popular press, both questioning the inevitability of its outcome and revealing the power struggle within the museum that led to his resignation. She draws almost entirely from primary source material in various archival collections and over a hundred contemporary and personal interviews. The book is lavishly illustrated with full-color plates and many previously unpublished photographs.--Provided by publisher
