Frederic Remington : the masterworks by Michael Edward Shapiro( Book )

23 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It would be easy to dismiss Remington's Wild West panorama with his glorified cowboys and noble savages, his ready-made melancholy and sunsets. While this catalogue of a traveling exhibition recognizes the painter's vocal jingoism and racism, it aims to show that he was much more than a facile celebrant of American frontier life. In Remington's later paintings, a literal realism gave way to impressionism and symbolism. His pure, almost abstract landscapes and romantic nocturnes suggest that white settlers could live in harmony with nature instead of imposing their will on it. The energy and dynamism of his darkly encrusted, cantilevered sculptures are undeniable. Remington's awareness that the destruction of Amerindian civilization was a national tragedy is reflected in his little-known, melodramatic novels and short stories, as one of the essays here makes clear. With 180 plates (half in color), this album highlights his diverse artistic outlets, from photography to drawing. Shapiro is chief curator at the St. Louis Art Museum; Hassrick is director of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. BOMC dividend selection, American Artist Book Club alternate. (March)

Gordon Parks : segregation story by Gordon Parks( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 1956, Life magazine published a photo-essay by Gordon Parks entitled "The Restraints: Open and Hidden," which documented the everyday activities and rituals of one extended African American family living in the rural South under Jim Crow segregation. One of the most powerful photographs depicts Joanne Thornton Wilson and her niece, Shirley Anne Kirksey, standing in front of a theater in Mobile, Alabama, an image which became a forceful "weapon of choice," as Parks would say, in the struggle against racism and segregation. While 26 photographs were eventually published in Life and some were exhibited in his lifetime, the bulk of Parks' assignment was thought to be lost. In 2011, five years after Parks' death, The Gordon Parks Foundation discovered more than 70 color transparencies at the bottom of an old storage bin marked "Segregation Series" that are now published for the first time in Segregation Story

"John Portman is an architect and artist whose influence has reshaped the skyline of cities internationally, particularly that of his hometown, Atlanta. His architectural firm was established in 1953, and the 800-room Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, which opened in 1967, introduced the world's first modern atrium hotel, a model which radically changed the industry. In the 1980s, Portman began painting and creating sculptures that are on view in his buildings and homes. The October 2009 exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta features Portman's fine art as well as projects from throughout his career." "John Portman: Art and Architecture, including essays by eminent architecture critics Paul Goldberger and Robert M. Craig, considers selected architectural and development projects, from early works in the 1950s and 1960s, including the Peachtree Center complex, to landmark hotels throughout the world, to vast mixed-use developments that sparked the rejuvenation of major cities (Embarcadero Center in San Francisco, Shanghai Centre in Shanghai, and Marina Square in Singapore), to exciting recent buildings in Korea and China"--

"Hamilton Collects American Art offers a fresh look at the history of American painting from 1738 through 1960.

With 62 works from 30 lenders, the exhibition surveys current collecting trends in the Hamilton community and tells the story of America and our national search for an artistic identity. The exhibition is organized by theme into three sections, The Natural Landscape, The Face of Society, and The Response to Modernism."--Fred L. Emerson Gallery website ( ; accessed 1 May 2003)
