Love and loss : American portrait and mourning miniatures by Robin Jaffee Frank ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Most often, portrait miniatures were painted in watercolor on thin disks of ivory. They were sometimes worn as jewelry, sometimes framed to be viewed privately. Many were painted by specialists, although renowned easel artists - including Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, and Charles Willson Peale - also created them to commemorate births, engagements, marriages, deaths, and other joinings or separations. The book traces the development of this exquisite art form, revealing the close ties between the history of the miniature and the history of American private life."--BOOK JACKET
Trisha Brown--dance and art in dialogue, 1961-2001 by Roland Aeschlimann ( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1962, at the age of twenty-six, Trisha Brown became one of the original members of the experimental Judson Church Dance Theater in New York, and in 1970 she cofounded The Grand Union. The dancers of these radical groups, such as Yvonne Rainer and Steve Paxton, embraced improvisation and the use of everyday movements not usually associated with legitimate choreography. To bring her dance into the real world of objects and unpredictable events, Brown performed much of her early work outdoors. The book recalls the richness of those times, when poets, musicians, painters, and sculptors joined with dancers and choreographers in questioning the hierarchies and boundaries of their disciplines." "In this book, which accompanies a nationally touring exhibition co-organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art and the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, historians, critics, choreographers, dancers, and visual artists explore the dialogue between dance and the visual arts in Brown's work. The contributors include Guillaume Bernardi, Trisha Brown, Simone Forti, Marianne Goldberg, Deborah Jowitt, Klaus Kertess, Laurence Louppe, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Charles Stainback, Hendel Teicher, and Adam D. Weinberg."--BOOK JACKET
Coming of age : American art, 1850s to 1950s by William C Agee ( Book )

"From the 1850s to the 1950s, American art and culture progressed from provincial status to international prominence, and American art transitioned from figurative depictions of the particular to abstract interpretation of universal ideals. This book chronicles this complex century of maturation through a selection of paintings from the collection of the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover Massachusetts."--BOOK JACKET

Miracle in the scrap heap : the sculpture of Richard Stankiewicz by Richard Stankiewicz ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers the first comprehensive survey of the art of Richard Stankiewicz (1922-83) and reassesses its place in the art of his time. Stankiewicz's welded sculpture of rusted iron and cast-off steel played an important role in the redefinition of art in New York during the 1950s. Yet, as is the case of several artists who figured significantly in the heady decade when the New York School came to international prominence, the full range of Stankiewicz's art has not been fully appreciated. This publication - accompanying an internationally touring exhibition organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts - provides the first overview of his pioneering "junk sculpture" of the 1950s within the context of the artist's thirty-year career. Although Stankiewicz has been included in important group exhibitions of Assemblage, Neo-Dada, and Abstract Expressionist sculpture, his art has eluded conclusive critical identification." "Following an introduction by Addison Gallery Director Adam D. Weinberg, is an extended critical look at Stankiewicz, his life, and his achievement by Emmie Donadio, who wrote her 1996 doctoral dissertation on the artist. The artist is placed within the twentieth-century European avant-garde tradition in an essay by Jon Wood. Martin Friedman's "Putting It All Together" positions Stankiewicz's work in relation to that of his contemporaries in 1950s New York. The book also includes a narrative chronology, a bibliography, and generous illustrations of key sculptures by the artist."--BOOK JACKET
Motion and document, sequence and time : Eadweard Muybridge and contemporary American photography by James L Sheldon ( Book )
5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The art of David Ireland : the way things are by Karen Tsujimoto ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Accompanying the first full-scale retrospective of David Ireland's work, this book provides an insightful overview of over thirty years of the artist's accomplishments, from his drawings, sculptures, and site-specific installations to his remarkable series of architectural transformations, including his well-known house at 500 Capp Street in San Francisco. Chronicling Ireland's circuitous route to his calling, curator and author Karen Tsujimoto explores how key life experiences have influenced his artistic perspective - from his early art-student days, through his years as an African importer and safari guide to his long standing interest in Eastern, and particularly Zen, philosophy and his connections to the Bay Area art community. An illuminating essay by Jennifer R. Gross helps to place Ireland's work in relationship to the work of other conceptual artists and especially considers his art in terms of historical materialism - assessing his use of neglected materials and artifacts as a process of cultural preservation." "With over 140 color and black-and-white images, as well as a detailed chronology, bibliography, and exhibition history, this volume offers the first thorough exploration of Ireland's visually and intellectually provocative work."--Jacket
