Independent spirits : women painters of the American West, 1890-1945 by Patricia Trenton( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brilliantly illustrated with more than 100 color plates, this book is a rich compendium of Western art by women, including those of American Indian, Mexican, African, and Asian heritage. The essays examine economic, social, and political forces that shaped this art over years of profound change. The dynamic growth of the West altered the role of women and opened new opportunities within the dominant culture, beginning in the late nineteenth century. In contrast to the East, the West was less constrained by tradition and social hierarchy: Western women had more freedom than their Eastern counterparts in almost every sphere of creative endeavor. In most Western states women had the vote before 1915, five years before the passage of the 19th Amendment. By 1924 the West had sent the first women to the U.S. Congress and had elected two woman governors (Wyoming and Texas) and a woman mayor of a large city (Seattle). Sometimes following the art currents of the times, sometimes working apart from them, women artists in the West painted in a variety of styles that included Realism, Impressionism, Symbolism, and Surrealism. Many of these women pursued additional careers in order to support the making of art. Some owned art galleries, others avidly collected art, while still others preferred to write art criticism in widely read publications. Many shared their talents by teaching classes and administering art programs in schools and colleges

The not-so-still life : a century of California painting and sculpture by Susan Landauer( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In illustrated essays, as entertaining as they are informative, The Not-So-Still Life traces the great variety of media and forms these artists have engaged as they have moved the still life not just off the table, but off the wall and into three dimensions. Susan Landauer, William H. Gerdts, and Patricia Trenton investigate a range of forces and influences - whether historical, sociological, economic, psychological, or biographical - that have played into this evolution, from the plein-air Impressionism of the early twentieth century to the Synchromist bouquets of Stanton Macdonald-Wright, the revolving table settings of Charles Ray, and the electronic sculptures of Alan Rath. In doing so they deepen our understanding of American art over the last century." "Presenting, interpreting, and celebrating the world-renowned and the lesser-known California artists who have uniquely defined and redefined the still life, this volume offers an exploration of the sensual pleasures, the aesthetic challenges, and the intellectual and perceptual associations of a century of art through the prism of a single genre."--Jacket

Birds, boughs, & blossoms : Jessie Arms Botke (1883-1971) by Patricia Trenton( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jessie Arms Botke is recognized as one of the great decorative painters of her era, specializing in images of birds rendered with her signature gold leaf technique. Born in Chicago, she trained at the School of the Arts Institute of Chicago beginning in 1902. Botke took her first trip to the West in 1906, bartering several paintings for a round-trip ticket on the Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railway. In 1909, she embarked on a three-month trip to Europe, returning home to Chicago with renewed determination & focus. In 1911, Botke moved to New York & was hired by Albert Herter for a position at the Herter Looms. It was through one of Herter's commissions that Botke started painting images of birds. In 1915 she married Cornelis Botke, a Dutch artist living & working as an architectural renderer in Chicago. Both she & Cornelis often worked in concert on large commissions, & it was her commercial popularity that gave the couple its financial stability. After several years in Chicago, the couple moved in 1919 to Carmel, California. They briefly lived in Los Angeles in the late 1920s before buying property & building a ranch in Wheeler Canyon, Ventura County, California, in 1929. It was from this rather unlikely spot that Botke orchestrated her career while tending to the duties of the ranch. Maintaining an exhausting painting schedule throughout her lifetime, she exhibited at venues such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Academy of Western Painters, & the National Association of Women Painters & Sculptors
