Landscape of slavery : the plantation in American art( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approaching their topic through the lenses of art history and social history, the authors explore a largely unexamined and provocative genre of American art: plantation paintings. The 83 color plates, 19 black-and-white illustrations, and six essays present both the images and a background for understanding them in the context of slavery and race relations in the United States

Matisse, Picasso, and modern art in Paris : the T. Catesby Jones collections at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the University of Virginia Art Museum by John B Ravenal( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A New York lawyer with Virginia roots, T. Catesby Jones acquired an extraordinary collection of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures by some sixty artists working in Paris during the early twentieth century. Jones's collection of almost three hundred works, divided between two Virginia institutions after his death, is reunited here in an illustrated catalogue with a full-color checklist accompanied by entries on twenty-four of the artists. Some are the best-known figures of this crucial era (Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Masson, Lipchitz); others are now less familiar (Lurcat, Bauchant, Marcoussis). Considered together, they provide a comprehensive view of modern art in Paris up to World War II and bring Jones's legacy to a wide audience for the first time."--B&N

Siting Jefferson : contemporary artists interpret Thomas Jefferson's legacy( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the summer of 2000, the University of Virginia Art Museum mounted an unusual site-specific exhibition called "Hindsight/Fore-site: Art for the New Millennium," for which twenty-four artists created art-works inspired by Thomas Jefferson's legacy. The projects were conceptually ambitous and visually compelling, yet most were ephemeral, making the eighty illustrations and accompanying essays in Siting Jefferson a particularly valuable documentation of a largely unreplicable exhibition."--Jacket
