The origins of American photography : from daguerreotype to dry-plate, 1839-1885 by Keith F Davis( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this text, Keith F. Davis examines photography's social history and aesthetic development in an era of rapid national growth. He demonstrates how key themes and genres - including the business of daguerreian portraiture, the markets for Civil War images, and the art of Western landscape photography - reflected the concerns and values of nineteenth-century society. Photographers of this era expressed a new national consciousness while, at the same time, helping to shape it. They also explored the visual language of a radically new medium, laying the foundation for all of photography's subsequent history."--Jacket
Winslow Homer and the critics : forging a national art in the 1870s by Margaret C Conrads( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winslow Homer's luminous watercolor seascapes and highly spirited portraits of children and outdoorsmen are some of the most recognizable and cherished works in the history of American art. This catalogue, published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition, examines his pictures from the 1870s, the least-studied period of this perennially popular American artist. Debunking the common myth that Homer worked in isolation, Margaret Conrads reveals him as a controversial artist who was an integral part of the dizzying New York art scene of the 1870s. Indeed, Homer was the American artist most frequently discussed by the press at this time - often with simultaneous commendation and vilification." "By viewing Homer's works of the 1870s through the lens of contemporaneous criticism, the author explains how and why the painter embodied the critics' high hopes for an art that expressed national values. She finds reflected in his vivid images an ongoing struggle to meet these expectations, even as he challenged and helped to redefine the artistic conventions governing American aesthetics." "This handsome volume is a remarkable record of an important period not only in Winslow Homer's career but also in the fascinating art world of late-nineteenth-century America."--Jacket
John Steuart Curry : inventing the Middle West by Patricia A Junker( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Steuart Curry: Inventing the Middle West is the first comprehensive study in more than fifty years of this member of the great triumvirate of American Regionalists: Thomas Hart Benton, Curry, and Grant Wood. It revives the reputation of one of the most important and controversial artists of the first half of the twentieth century, whose paintings of farm life in his native Kansas (including baptisms and tornados), of the circus, of American history, and of the American scene in general were dramatically eclipsed by the ascendancy of abstract art and the New York School at midcentury
An American century of photography : from dry-plate to digital by Hallmark Photographic Collection( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An American Century of Photography represents the first comprehensive study of this vast and important subject from the mid-1880s to the present. Lavishly illustrated, and printed to the highest technical standards in both tritone and color, this authoritative volume presents a significantly new perspective on the history of American photography that will be of interest to general audiences and scholars alike. Based largely on photography's own literature and supplemented with detailed source notes, this book emphasizes the relationships between individuals and aesthetic movements, and the intellectual and cultural climate in which artists work. Together, the images and text of this volume constitute both an introduction to, and an exploration of, the most vital age of American photography. This era began just over a century ago with the advent of the dry-plate and the hand camera; now, in the mid-1990s photography is in the midst of another revolution, one brought on by the impact of the computer. An American Century of Photography documents this remarkable evolution through a detailed discussion of leading photographers and the reproduction of a great variety of images, from such famous works as Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother to many that were previously little known or unpublished. The variety of this selection will greatly expand understanding of the complexities and riches of American photography. In addition, this volume takes a broad view of its subject by including important European artists who emigrated to the United States in the 1930s, such as Andre Kertesz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and others

Heartland : the photographs of Terry Evans by Keith F Davis( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The landscape and people of the American Midwest have captivated photographer Terry Evans (b. 1944) throughout her forty-year photographic career. Evans has a deep connection to her native region, which she has explored from a variety of visual and thematic perspectives. Heartland traces the evolution of Evans's vision, beginning in the early 1970s with her social documentary images of people in Kansas. She became a landscape photographer in 1978, focusing on the grasses, land, and skies of the prairie; this was followed by an aerial survey of the entire Great Plains, from Texas to Canada. She has also photographed Chicago from the air, an abandoned military site, small-town life in Kansas, and historical samples of prairie flora and fauna from Chicago's Field Museum. More recently, she has documented the steel industry in the Midwest and oil and gas drilling in North Dakota. This generously illustrated book examines all of these works, which together reveal the enduring beauty of the prairie landscape"--Publisher's website

Class distinctions : Dutch painting in the age of Rembrandt and Vermeer by Ronni Baer( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Dutch Republic in the 17th century was home to one of the greatest flowerings of painting in the history of Western art. Freed from the constraints of royal and church patronage, artists created a rich outpouring of works that circulated through an open market to patrons and customers at every level of Dutch society. The closely observed details of daily life captured in portraits, genre scenes and landscapes offer a wealth of information about the possessions, activities and circumstances that distinguished members of the social classes, from the nobility to the urban poor. The dazzling array of paintings gathered here--by artists such as Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch and Gerard ter Borch, as well as Rembrandt and Vermeer--illuminated by essays from leading scholars, invites us to explore a vibrant early modern society and its reflection in a golden age of brilliant painting"--

Inventing the modern world : decorative arts at the world's fairs, 1851-1939 by Jason T Busch( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inventing the Modern World explores innovation and its effect on the creation of objects and modern life. Objects examined here not only illustrate inventive or revived fabrication techniques, but also embody cross-cultural and cross-national influences, and reflect the significant nationalistic objectives and folkloric customs that shaped the competition inherent in the events. They also illuminate how the fairs became places where designers, makers, and consumers assembled to learn about other peoples and cultures, to make discoveries about craftsmanship and manufactures, to appropriate ideas, and to acquire works"--Cover flap
