"This illustrated work displays the full glory and elaborate details of many of the newly restored bronze panels, the remarkable work of the conservators and restorers who cleaned the priceless doors.

Other chapters explore the challenging craft of bronze sculpture, Ghiberti's casting and finishing techniques, and the painstaking process involved in documenting and restoring the treasured doors. A chronology of Ghiberti's life completes this volume."--Jacket
Leonardo da Vinci and the art of sculpture by Gary M Radke ( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is renowned as a painter, designer, draftsman, architect, engineer, scientist, and theorist. His work as a sculptor is not commonly acknowledged, and many have argued that Leonardo believed that sculpture was an inferior art form ("of lesser genius than painting"). Challenging and overturning these assumptions, Leonardo da Vinci and the Art of Sculpture looks at the sculptural projects that the artist undertook, as well as the late Renaissance sculptures that were indebted to him. Leonardo consistently drew inspiration from ancient sculpture, admired the work of such contemporary sculptural innovators as Donatello, and even trained under Andrea del Verrocchio, the preeminent bronze sculptor of late 15th-century Florence. Furthermore, Leonardo spent many years of his life working on two larger-than-life-sized horse sculptures - Sforza and Trivulzio - monuments to Francesco Sforza, the Duke of Milan, and to Gian Giacomo Trivulzio, his successor. Although neither was completed, the authors argue that these equestrian monuments show how Leonardo was intensely engaged with the design dilemmas of representing a horse rearing on its hind legs. Another highlight of the book is a group of new images of the John the Baptist Preaching to a Levite and a Pharisee, a recently restored large-scale work in the Florentine Baptistery that clearly demonstrates Leonardo's collaboration with Giovanni Francesco Rustici."--Book jacket
Winslow Homer and the critics : forging a national art in the 1870s by Margaret C Conrads ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Winslow Homer's luminous watercolor seascapes and highly spirited portraits of children and outdoorsmen are some of the most recognizable and cherished works in the history of American art. This catalogue, published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition, examines his pictures from the 1870s, the least-studied period of this perennially popular American artist. Debunking the common myth that Homer worked in isolation, Margaret Conrads reveals him as a controversial artist who was an integral part of the dizzying New York art scene of the 1870s. Indeed, Homer was the American artist most frequently discussed by the press at this time - often with simultaneous commendation and vilification." "By viewing Homer's works of the 1870s through the lens of contemporaneous criticism, the author explains how and why the painter embodied the critics' high hopes for an art that expressed national values. She finds reflected in his vivid images an ongoing struggle to meet these expectations, even as he challenged and helped to redefine the artistic conventions governing American aesthetics." "This handsome volume is a remarkable record of an important period not only in Winslow Homer's career but also in the fascinating art world of late-nineteenth-century America."--BOOK JACKET

John Henry Twachtman : an American impressionist by Lisa N Peters ( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John Twachtman was one of the most modern American painters of his day. A founding member of the Ten American Painters and an important teacher at the Art Students League, Twachtman combined European and American influences to create his own highly individual artistic style. Throughout his career, Twachtman won the approval of his fellow artists by challenging artistic conventions and experimenting with innovative subject matter." "This catalogue is the first in-depth assessment of Twachtman's career. In an essay based on fresh research, Lisa N. Peters provides the definitive account of Twachtman's life as an artist. With an eye for the critical reception of his work, Peters constructs a narrative of Twachtman's artistic development, from his student days in Munich to his early death in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Accompanying the traveling exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art, this fully illustrated catalogue elegantly reveals the subtle delicacy of Twachtman's oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET

After Whistler : the artist and his influence on American painting ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This illustrated book - published to commemorate the centenary of the artist's death - addresses Whistler's extraordinary legacy and establishes his pivotal place in the history of American art." "After Whistler juxtaposes fourteen of the artist's most important works with an array of pictures by thirty-eight other American painters - including Henry Ossawa Tanner, William Merritt Chase, and John Singer Sargent - to demonstrate how Whistler's American contemporaries were affected by his techniques, color palette, compositions, and subject matter. The introduction to the book provides an overview of Whistler's association with American artists and the reception of his work in the United States. The essays that follow discuss Whistler's Venetian sojourn and its effect on the American artists who flocked to that city: his relationship with Philadelphia's art community; the Whistler Memorial Exhibition held in Boston in 1904; and much more." "This volume is essential reading anyone interested in American art and Whistler's role in it's history."--Jacket
