In the light of Italy : Corot and early open-air painting by Philip Conisbee( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prominent art historians Philip Conisbee, Sarah Faunce, Jeremy Strick, Peter Galassi, and Vincent Pomarede discuss the cultural, theoretical, and art historical background of this school of outdoor painting. They examine the early history of open-air painting, its theory and practice, the sites of Rome and southern Italy that were painted, and the delicate balance that existed among realism, memory and imagination. A rich selection of representative paintings is discussed and reproduced. The book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Saint Louis Art Museum
Gustave Courbet by Sarah Faunce( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Creator of defiantly anti-official art, French realist painter Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) insisted on the right of artists to be independent witnesses to the truth of their own time. This attitude, according to Faunce, lies at the heart of our own concept of the modern. Faunce, curator of European painting and sculpture at the Brooklyn Museum, has written a fresh, timely reassessment of an artist who still looks contemporary. Courbet coined the term "real allegory" to describe his paintings of persons and places familiar to him, depicted as the embodiments of ideas. He "invented a whole vocabulary of touch" in his landscapes, powerful meditations on natural forces. Some of his erotic pictures startle even today. This beautifully illustrated study includes 40 color plates with facing-page commentaries and 59 in black-and-white." -- Publishers Weekly
French nineteenth-century drawings and watercolors at the Brooklyn Museum by Brooklyn Museum( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1900 the more than five hundred gouaches and ink drawings made by James Jacques Joseph Tissot for his Life of Christ were purchased by public subscription by The Brooklyn Museum, and in 1992 a sketchbook by Tissot, related to this series, was also purchased for the collection. Over the intervening years nearly one hundred other works on paper by nineteenth-century French artists entered the collection. Many of them are by artists now considered to be the major masters of their time; but there are also works by other artists, both academic and avant-garde, less familiar to the American public today, who deserve recognition. This collection - which spans a century of creativity and a subsequent century of collecting, thus preserving a portion of our cultural and artistic heritage - is one of the significant holdings of works on paper at this great museum." "This volume is part of an ongoing series devoted to the Museum's outstanding and encyclopedic collection of works on paper. It presents ninety-three drawings, watercolors, and pastels by some fifty artists, ranging from Fragonard through Corot, Millet, Daumier, and Rodin; the Impressionists Degas, Manet, Morisot, and Pissarro; the Post-Impressionists Cezanne, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, and van Gogh; and the modernist pioneers Picasso and Gris." "Through an examination of these works and the fascinating texts that accompany them, we can gain an understanding not only of the aesthetic attitudes of each artist and his society, but also of the history, politics, and social mores of the time and place in which each work was created. These works on paper, thanks to their intimacy and directness not found in the more formal media of oil painting and sculpture, help us to understand better the art and the artist's thoughts at the moment of creation."--Jacket
