Dalí's optical illusions by Salvador Dalí( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on a central but relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. The book examines Dali's use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Wardsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh."--Jacket

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue presents the 188 works of art and thirty-two costumes that compose the Serge Lifar Collection. It has been enlarged since 1933, most notably with the 1996 acquisition of original costumes. Most of the set and costume designs and all of the costumes were made for thirty-seven Ballet Russes productions, from the first in 1909 to the last in 1929. The Ballet Russes was one of the greatest artistic movements of the early twentieth century, which fused the efforts of composer, choreographer, dancer, and designer into total works of art. Diaghilev commissioned prominent Russian painters and artists from the School of Paris -- among them Bakst, Picasso, Matisse, Braque, and Miro -- to design sets and costumes. This book provides notes about each production and the corresponding items in the collection, as well as a new assessment of theimmediate impact and lasting influence of the renowned Ballet Russes

Winslow Homer in the 1870s : selections from the Valentine-Pulsifer collection by John Wilmerding( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Both during and since his lifetime, Winslow Homer (1836-1910) has been acknowledged as a great American master, whose productive career as a graphic artist, oil painter, and watercolorist spanned the second half of the nineteenth century into the first decade of the twentieth. All but one of the works illustrated here date from the 1870s, the central decade of Homer's life and a critical one in his development into a mature artist. These pictures comprise all the essential images of his art during this period, and some are related to key works in the artist's oeuvre. One watercolor, Berry Pickers, is arguably among the half-dozen greatest pieces of his output dating from this decade. Among the themes concerning Homer at this time were the position of blacks in American society at the close of the Civil War, women in rural and leisure settings, children or youths on the threshold of maturity, issues of sexual opposition and tension, and portraiture, the latter a subject not commonly associated with Homer's art"--Back cover
