Most widely held works by Duncan Robinson
William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, and the Kelmscott Chaucer by Duncan Robinson( Book )

13 editions published between 1982 and 1987 in English and German and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Kelmscott Chaucer is widely held to be one of the most magnificent printed books ever produced. For forty years Morris and Burne-Jones had worked together on a variety of projects: this was their last and greatest venture. The book describes the growth of the monumental Chaucer from a more modest concept through its many production problems to its final form on publication in 1896. The author also traces the development of the ideas for the illustrations which were suggested by the text and modified by practical concern for page layout and reproduction quality. There are a number of illustrations of designs which Burne-Jones made but never used. The final drawings from which ink interpretations were made and the woodblocks engraved are reproduced to facsimile standards. There are a number of reproductions of the engravings themselves, and several of the full decorated pages are shown."--book jacket

With the accomplished photographer David Finn at his side, Robinson presents the building to us inside and out - from its formal welcoming atrium to the armchair comfort of its galleries, to the serene and well-ordered offices and study spaces - as a successful, living museum. Along the way on this very personal guided tour, he enlightens us as only he could on the history of the museum, on the experience of viewing this particular art collection in its setting, and on a host of architectural and decorative details, from carpets and door-knobs to vaulted skylights

Stanley Spencer by Duncan Robinson( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) was the most original British painter of his era. This catalogue celebrates the achievements of an artist who continued to explore and develop over five decades. By 1914, aged only twenty-two, Spencer had completed a series of important religious works set in the Thameside village of his childhood. He experienced the First World War as a loss of Eden, yet his art was opened to complexities unguessed at in his Cookham innocence. An essay by Patrick Wright focuses on Spencer in the 1920s, uncovering a new cultural milieu and pointing to hidden themes in the murals he painted for Burchclere Chapel. Timothy Hyman charts Spencer's work as a process of autobiographical revelation, tracing his transition from the monumental Christian idealism of Giotto to his confrontation with raw reality and sexual fantasy in the crisis years of the 1930s. Both essays locate Spencer alongside his contemporaries, such as Otto Dix, Max Beckmann and Diego Rivera. Reproducing a large selection of his finest works, including several that are little known, this book offers fresh perspectives based on current research and presents a ground-breaking survey of the artist

Nineteenth- and twentieth-century European drawings by Richard R Brettell( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Lehman was a member of the first generation of American collectors to embrace what we call modern art. This volume catalogues 207 nineteenth- and twentieth-century European drawings that are now part of the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum. More than three-quarters of these drawings are French, but there are also sheets from Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and Great Britain. Most are from the nineteenth century, but Robert Lehman also acquired, in some cases from the artists themselves, a number of drawings made during his own lifetime."--Jacket
Eileen Hogan : personal geographies by Elisabeth R Fairman( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This visually stunning survey provides an in-depth look at Eileen Hogan's (b. 1946) working methods. Covering her entire career, it focuses particularly on two dominant themes in the artist's oeuvre--enclosed gardens and portraiture. Her depictions of gardens range from London's well-known Kew Gardens and Chelsea Physic Garden to Little Sparta, Ian Hamilton Finlay's garden in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh. Her portraits include expressive sketches and paintings of veterans of the Second World War, and of HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall. The book includes images from Hogan's sketchbooks, her studies, and finished paintings, accompanied by striking photographs of the artist at work. Essays by scholars and Hogan herself trace the artist's career from her student days at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts through the present. This volume provides an unprecedented, intimate look at the life and work of one of the most interesting and evocative artists working today."--Yale University Press
