Bernhard Gutmann : an American impressionist, 1869-1936 by Percy North( Book )

15 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Major Impressionist and Post-Impressionist, Bernhard Gutmann (1869-1936) recorded his travels and the joys of family life in paintings distinguished by luscious color and an exuberant sensibility. He was not only a painter who received serious critical acclaim during his lifetime but also a beloved teacher, a successful illustrator, and a master of ceramic and graphic art. In addition, Gutmann had a great influence on American regional art: he organized the still-thriving Lynchburg Art Club in Virginia and later helped establish the influential Silvermine Guild of Artists in New Canaan, Connecticut."--BOOK JACKET. "Born and educated in Germany, Gutmann arrived in the United States at the age of twenty-three. From modest beginnings - he emigrated to Virginia to work as an electrician - he quickly rose to become the first superintendent of drawing in the Lynchburg public schools. After moving to New York and marrying Bertha Goldman, granddaughter of the founder of the investment banking firm Goldman Sachs, he was financially secure and free to concentrate on his art alone. The last decades of his life were spent in Connecticut, where he raised his family, and in traveling to Europe with his wife and daughters."--BOOK JACKET. "Because Gutmann had no need to sell his art, it remained with his family rather than going to the galleries, auction houses, and museums that would have kept it in the public eye. His work therefore was little known from his death until his "rediscovery" in 1988, when Gutmann was lauded as "an American Gauguin." Percy North's authoritative text - interwoven with private journals and letters as well as reviews and other period commentary - captures the spirit and the skill of this charming and extremely gifted artist. Gutmann's affectionate and incisive portraits, his foreign genre scenes and landscapes, and his tranquil still lifes are lavishly reproduced in this handsome volume, which will enchant all those who finally have the pleasure of discovering Gutmann's work."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first exhibition to extensively explore American artist Max Weber's formative years in Paris from fall 1905 to December 1908, when he transformed his painting style from classical representations of figures to bold interpretations of cubism and futurism. More than 30 paintings, prints, and drawings-many of them loaned by the Estate of Max Weber and other public and private collections-showcase the artist as one of the most important American modernist painters. The exhibition features several Weber paintings from 1909 to 1915 from the BMA's collection, as well as works from Weber's personal collection by his teacher Henri Matisse and his friends Pablo Picasso and Henri Rousseau."--Publisher description
The Anglo-Catholic Revival's Contribution to the Resurgence of the Venetian Enamel Mosaic Industry by Rita S Kovach( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The art of mosaic decoration has existed for millennia. The earliest examples are floors made of pebbles from the eighth century BC that were found in Asia Minor. The Greeks were the first to produce enamel mosaic two thousand years ago, and the process travelled around the Mediterranean before eventually spreading to the adjacent continents. Byzantine craftsmen created an innovative style with their extensive use of rich metallic colors, and they had a great influence on the emergence of Venice in the thirteenth century as a leading, global force in enamel mosaic manufacture for hundreds of years. The deregulation of the industry and the lack of skilled masters contributed to the drastic decline of Venetian enamel mosaic workshops by the early 1800s; however, within a century, the industry was booming again, with new architectural mosaics being installed all over Europe and North America
