The arts in Latin America, 1492-1820 by Philadelphia Museum of Art( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the end of the 16th century, Europe, Africa, and Asia were connected to North and South America via a vast network of complex trade routes. This led, in turn, to dynamic cultural exchanges between these continents and a proliferation of diverse art forms in Latin America. This monumental book transcends geographic boundaries and explores the history of the confluence of styles, materials, and techniques among Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas through the end of the colonial era––a period marked by the independence movements, the formation of national states, and the rise of academic art. Written by distinguished international scholars, essays cover a full range of topics, including city planning, iconography in painting and sculpture, East-West connections, the power of images, and the role of the artist. Beautifully illustrated with some three hundred works—many published for the first time—this book presents a spectacular selection of decorative arts, textiles, silver, sculpture, painting, and furniture. Scholarly entries on each of the works highlight the various cultural influences and differences throughout this vast region. This groundbreaking book also includes an illustrated chronology, informative maps, and an exhaustive bibliography and is sure to set a new standard in the field of Latin American studies. --Publisher description

Cézanne and beyond by Philadelphia Museum of Art( Book )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The famous proclamation that Cezanne "is the father of us all" has been attributed to both Matisse and Picasso, and his influence has extended to a great diversity of artists thereafter. In this monumental book, a team of distinguished scholars offers the most comprehensive view to date on Cezanne's vital role in shaping European and American art throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. More than forty paintings and ten works on paper by Cezanne-many of his best-known and most admired-are juxtaposed throughout the catalogue with approximately 120 works by a range of modern and contemporary artists who found in Cezanne a central inspiration. They include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Fernand Leger, Brice Marden, Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, Liubov Popova, and Jeff Wall, as well as Picasso, Matisse, Johns, and Kelly. The essays offer insights into the "conversation" between Cezanne and each of these other artists, who stand on a par with his greatness. Among its many features, this book contains conceptual overviews by Richard Shiff and Robert Storr as well as an illustrated chronology."--Publisher description
Art in Rome in the eighteenth century by Edgar Peters Bowron( Book )

24 editions published in 2000 in English and Italian and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caught between the Theatricality of the Baroque and the acute sensibility of Romanticism, art in Rome in the eighteenth century has long been a neglected area of study." "The grand scale and spectacular diversity of the period are comprehensively captured for the first time in this definitive history of the period, produced to accompany a major U.S. exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and documenting the work of over 150 artists. With over 450 illustrations, and texts by an outstanding array of experts from around the world, Art in Rome in the Eighteenth Century provides a massively authoritative survey of a fascinating era."--Jacket
Gauguin, Cézanne, Matisse : visions of Arcadia by Joseph J Rishel( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The notion of a golden age set in an earthly paradise has long kindled the human imagination. Virgil envisioned such a place of bucolic pleasures - erotic and unsullied, sometimes shadowed by blunted desires and doubts - in his Eclogues, set in the valley of Arcadia in ancient Greece. His poems defined for Western art and literature a theme that continues to this day. Their resonance as a foundation for European painters around 1900 is the subject of this beautifully illustrated catalogue, which focuses on three monumental paintings - Paul Gauguin's Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (1897-98), Paul Cézanne's The Large Bathers (1906), and Henri Matisse's Bathers by a River (1909-10, 1913, and 1916-17). Other masterpieces by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Nicolas Poussin, and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes establish the high value given to Arcadia in the history of French painting. These are joined by major works by Henri Edmond Cross, Robert Delaunay, André Derain, Pablo Picasso, Henri Rousseau, and Paul Signac, as well as paintings by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Franz Marc, and Natalia Goncharova to suggest the vitality of this subject outside the canonical French definitions. Distinguished scholars place these artists within the larger context of this inventive period in art history."--Publisher's description
Cézanne in Philadelphia collections by Joseph J Rishel( Book )

12 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For anyone seriously interested in the works of Paul Cézanne, Philadelphia is one of the primary pilgrimage sites. At or near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, one finds a marvelous concentration of Cézannes from all periods--portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and figures--that cover the major themes of his artistic life. This book catalogues a major exhibition celebrating Cézanne in Philadelphia. Forty-four works are included, representing among them the subjects to which he returned throughout his career. Views of his native Provence include a group of watercolors and late paintings on the monumental theme of Mont Sainte-Victoire. Three portraits of his wife executed over a ten-year period show a remarkable range in handling and expression. Four drawings that have never been published--including one of his son that is newly discovered--are also featured. The culmination of the exhibition and book is the huge canvas of "The Large Bathers" on which Cézanne was working when he died. Together with the other major variations on that theme in the National Gallery, London, and the Barnes Foundation in suburban Philadelphia, it stands as his most ambitious and stately achievement. Cézanne in Philadelphia Collections gives those interested in painting the opportunity to experience a valuable and very generous cross-section of the work of one of the world's most influential artists. It also reaffirms the remarkable resources of fine art that exist in Philadelphia. -- Back cover
Painting in Italy in the eighteenth century; rococo to romanticism. An exhibition organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and the Toledo Museum of Art by Art Institute of Chicago( Book )

Inventing impressionism : Paul Durand-Ruel and the modern art market by Inventing impressionism( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most forward-thinking art dealers of all time, Paul Durand-Ruel (1831-1922) played a crucial role in the rise of French Impressionism. This book explores how Durand-Ruel discovered, exhibited, and shaped an audience for Impressionist paintings at a time when they were not yet appreciated. Durand-Ruel first encountered key Impressionist painters in the early 1870s and guided many of their careers for decades. A passionate advocate of the Impressionists, he established personal ties with these artists and developed new markets for them by opening branches of his Paris gallery in London, Brussels, and New York. Featuring essays by leading scholars, this handsome volume provides a biography of the man and the trajectory of his career. It also examines his relationships with artists and buyers and his groundbreaking business practices, such as embracing the idea of the solo show, publishing art reviews, and paying artists stipends--often at great financial risk and personal cost to himself. Illustrated with archival documents, historic photographs, and paintings by artists such as Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, among others, this major contribution to the study of art and commerce transforms our understanding of the development of Impressionism."--Publisher description

Goya, another look : an exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Palais des beaux-arts, Lille by Francisco Goya( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his own lifetime Francisco Goya (1746-1828) was thought to be without rival in his native Spain. Since his death, his legacy has received ever-higher acclaim. This illustrated catalogue presents several distinct aspects of Goya's oeuvre, including the tapestry cartoons, his religious works and still-life paintings, related to the inventory of works of art he kept for himself in his studio. These diverse groups afford a series of insights into this artist's successful career. In turn, it shows that Goya at his most public can be as private and revealing as he is in the works he held back from public view
