Impressionism in America : the Ten American Painters by Ulrich W Hiesinger( Book )

13 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book to explore in depth the development of America's premier Impressionist group, which formed amid great controversy in 1897 following the secession of its members from the once progressive Society of American Artists. Childe Hassam, John H. Twachtman, William Merritt Chase (who joined the group after Twachtman's death), Edmund C. Tarbell, Frank W. Benson, Joseph R. De Camp, Thomas W. Dewing, Edward E. Simmons, Willard L. Metcalf, Robert Reid, and J. Alden Weir ... The author discusses the beginning of the ten artists' activities as members of a sweeping reform movement at the time of the nation's Centennial Exhibition in 1876, traces their emergence as Impressionist painters in the 1880s and 1890s, and charts the course of their mature careers as members of the Ten between 1897 and 1917"--Jacket
Childe Hassam : American impressionist by Ulrich W Hiesinger( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is notable for its careful selection and analysis of Hassam's finest oils and watercolors, many of them in private collections and never published before. A number of errors in previous publications on the artist, ranging from falsely identified works to details of Hassam's travels, are corrected here, and new information is provided on such a classic painting as Grand Prix Day. Recently discovered letters shed new light on the artist's views and on his personality, a strange mixture of irreverence and New England propriety. These letters are printed in an appendix, together with other writings by Hassam and interviews with him. A bibliography and a chronology that plots the artist's movements year by year add to the value of the book as an essential reference work on the Impressionist movement in America and its most important exponent
Indian lives : a photographic record from the Civil War to Wounded Knee by Ulrich W Hiesinger( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an introduction the author places the photographs in the contexts of White American expansion and Indian culture, and discusses the means and aims of photography at the time. In a series of narratives, organized thematically around certain tribes and their activities or around outstanding historical events, Hiesinger goes on to provide a background for the interpretation of the individual images. Biographical notes on the photographers, a map, a chronology, and a bibliography complete a volume that brings the reader into intimate contact with a critical period of American history
Antonio Mancini : nineteenth-century Italian master by U.W Hiesinger( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Italy's greatest modern painters, Antonio Mancini (1852-1930) is best known for his daring and innovative painting methods. This overview of his career - the first comprehensive study in English - follows upon the Philadelphia Museum of Art's recent acquisition of fifteen major oil paintings and pastels by Mancini, including the famous Saltimbanco (1877-78), all of which are included in this beautiful volume." "Mancini's paintings are at once realistic and visionary, and they span a career that brought him from the legendary slums of Naples to Paris, Rome, and English country houses. Of particular interest is Mancini's relevance to the American art world, where he was once a much-discussed controversial figure, supported by a small group of American patrons and artists before becoming famous in Italy. John Singer Sargent is said to have called Mancini the greatest living painter."--Jacket
