Classical taste in America 1800-1840 by Wendy A Cooper( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fashionable new international style, which had its European beginnings in the eighteenth-century excavations at Pompeii and Herculaneum, and as a distinctive expression of America's own emulation of classical precedents in government, ideal beauty, education, and the decorative arts. This book charmingly investigates the multifaceted impact of classical political, intellectual, and aesthetic values on early nineteenth-century American culture through a close examination

French oil sketches and the academic tradition( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Academie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, founded in Paris in 1648 as an alternative to the old guild system, was the center for art instruction through the end of the nineteenth century, and the most skilled practitioners of oil painting - and the majority of artists included in the catalogue - belonged to the Academie. Membership in the Academie provided artists with the only opportunity to exhibit their work and was, therefore, crucial for professional success. Because the oil sketch played an important role in the planning and execution of finished works, these artists were well-versed in the practice of oil sketching."--BOOK JACKET. "This catalogue explores the diversity and evolution of the oil sketch within the French academic tradition, with detailed discussions of 127 works, all of which are drawn from a private collection currently on loan to the University Art Museum of the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. Among the artists whose works are included are Francois Boucher, Henri Fantin-Latour, Jean-Baptiste Hilaire, Adelaide Labille-Guiard, Jean-Baptiste Leprince, Jacques Sablet, and Simon Vouet."--BOOK JACKET
Contemporary British studio ceramics : the Grainer collection by Annie Carlano( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Britain today the output of excellent ceramics seems more eclectic than elsewhere. This stylish and wide-ranging survey comprises examples of clay art by one hundred major artists, covering the period from the late 1980s through 2009. Drawn from the Diane and Marc Grainer Collection, it includes works by Allison Britton, Edmund de Waal, Kate Malone, Grayson Perry, Julian Stair, Steve Dixon, and Nick Arroyave-Portela, among others. The selection balances functional objects and sculpture; hand-built, thrown, and molded techniques; varieties of scale and color; and cerebral and emotional content. All the ceramics here are rooted in the materiality of clay. The properties of the raw material, from its soft, malleable texture to the alchemy of slips and glazes, are at the core of the artists’ passion. And, as the text reveals, the younger generation is moving into new directions of art practice."--Publisher description
Double solitaire : the surreal worlds of Kay Sage and Yves Tanguy by Stephen Robeson Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yves Tanguy and Kay Sage were two of Surrealism's leading painters, who together elaborated de Chirico's world of isolate and obdurate forms into eerie landscapes sparsely populated with biomorphic life forms. Here, for the first time, the work of this dynamic couple is explored in depth. An essay by Stephen Robeson Miller examines the intersection of Sage's and Tanguy's biographies with their work, accurately recounting for the first time Sage's conversion to Surrealism. A second essay by Jonathan Stuhlman traces the ways in which Sage's art influenced Tanguy's. These essays are accompanied by color plates containing several previously unreproduced works and photographs."--Publisher description
Against the grain : wood in contemporary art, craft and design by N.Y.) Museum of Arts and Design (New York( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on some of the most interesting conceptual technical trends in wood working today, Against the grain includes approximately 65 vessels, sculptures, furniture, and installations, created since 2000, which provocatively defy categories and celebrate the visual dynamics of wood. The book demonstrates how contemporary creators have engaged the medium of wood in strategies that might be described as "postmodern, " employing mimicry, assemblage, virtuosity, and whimsy (with a serious purpose). Environmental issues also are prominently addressed. Artists represented include Derek Bencomo, Gary Carsley, Hunt Clark, Piet Hein Eek, David Ellsworth, Sebastian Errazuriz, Bud Latven, Mark Lindquist, Thomas Loeser, Sarah Oppenheimer, William Pope.
