Paris 1889 : American artists at the Universal Exposition by Annette Blaugrund( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marisol : sculptures and works on paper by Marina Pacini( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Paris-born, Venezuelan artist Marisol (b. 1930) burst onto the 1960s New York art scene with large figural sculptures in a wild amalgam of mixed media. Often satirical, Marisol's art is inspired by sources as diverse as Pre-Columbian art, folk art, Cubism, and Surrealism. For the past several decades, however, Marisol has shunned the spotlight and her artwork has been overlooked as a result. Accompanying the first retrospective of Marisol's work in more than a decade, this long-awaited and beautifully illustrated volume offers a much-needed corrective, reestablishing her role as a major figure in postwar American art. Essays by leading scholars of Latin American and 20th-century art explore all facets of her work including her influences, the theme of family, American politics and pop culture, Native American rights and poverty, her role as a female artist, and her relationship to Latin America and Latin American art"
Pissarro : creating the impressionist landscape by Katherine Rothkopf( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pissarro: Creating the Impressionist Landscape explores Camille Pissarro's transformation from a Barbizon-style painter to one of the leaders of the emerging Impressionist movement. This publication is the first to focus on the revolutionary landscape paintings he created between 1864 and 1874. During this pivotal decade in his career, Pissarro produced some of his most beautiful and innovative canvases, and his experimental techniques and vision laid the groundwork for an entire generation of painters. The catalogue brings together forty-nine of these exquisite works, from key paintings included in the Salon exhibitions of the 1860s to a powerful selection of landscapes seen in the first Impressionist show of 1874. Many of these paintings are drawn from major museums around the world and rarely shown private collections." "Essays on the development of Pissarro's painting style from 1864 to 1974, and on the influence of place in his work, acknowledge his formative years in St. Thomas and Venezuela as well as his fascination with the countryside surrounding Paris. Technical studies of several of the artist's paintings from the 1860s reveal new insights into the artist's creative process."--Jacket

Remington, Russell and the language of Western art by Peter H Hassrick( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning about 1825 the frontier artists of the American West helped shape the national identity through their collective images of the region. Following in their footsteps were Frederic Remington (1861-1909) and Charles M. Russell (1864-1926), who brought western art to its apotheosis, becoming, in the historian Robert Taft's phrase, "the most celebrated artists of the West."" "As young men, Remington and Russell struck out for the West, seeking adventure and self-identity. Remington stayed for only one year, Russell for the rest of his life. But both eventually became artists, and both took as their subject the disappearing West and its people. Different in temperament and style, they became the focal point of a manufactured rivalry that dominated the American art scene at the turn of the twentieth century and in essence pitted East against West. Camps of followers developed, and duels were waged on their behalf in the press, although neither Remington nor Russell directly engaged in the rivalry." "This volume, the catalogue for the exhibition Remington, Russell and the Language of Western Art, recounts the story of that shared limelight, its interplay and its tensions. It also explores who Remington and Russell were, how their art interacted, and why, despite their fundamental differences, they are so inextricably joined in the public's mind. Their depictions of the West and its people - Indians, cowboys, cavalrymen, and mountainmen - continue to define the West in the American imagination."--Jacket

Venice in the age of Canaletto by Alexandra Libby( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canaletto's landscapes are arguably, even today, the most familiar artistic products of eighteenth-century Venice For those with the requisite means, no visit to the city would be considered complete without the purchase of at least one of the artist's views, which captured the city's topography and urban activity with apparent verisimilitude. ... View painting, not a favored genre during the preceding several centuries, gained considerable popularity in the 1700s. Its ascendency corresponded directly to increased foreign travel and in particular to the aristocratic Englishmen who, having embarked on the Grand Tour - an itinerary which necessarily included Venice - sought mementos of their travels. ... However, for all Canaletto's popularity and his ability to capture the fabric of Venice at its most appealing and evocative, his work is curiously devoid of the rich coloring, sensuality, and exuberance of most Venetian art of the period. To help elucidate the complicated forces that shaped Canaletto and the city of Venice during his age, this catalogue offers a range of essays."--Preface

Two centuries of American still-life painting : the Frank and Michelle Hevrdejs collection by William H Gerdts( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Showcasing a treasured private collection amassed over several decades, this publication represents the beauty and complexity of still-life painting in the United States. More than 65 works from the Hevrdejs collection, many of which have never been on public view, are accompanied by comprehensive and accessible explanations that contextualize their role in the ongoing development of the genre. Featuring works by prominent and diverse artists such as Raphaelle Peale, Thomas Hart Benton, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Andrew Wyeth, this study expands the overall notion of the still life by examining its use in a variety of painting styles from the 19th century to the present day. With color illustrations and an essay and entries by a distinguished scholar, this book demonstrates why the genre has been a compelling preoccupation for American artists over two centuries
A new American sculpture, 1914-1945 : Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first publication to situate the individual contributions of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman, and William Zorach into a compelling constellation of artists with shared aesthetic and social concerns. Although each European-born, American artist cultivated his own distinct style, their creative priorities were all deeply rooted in quiet composition, synthetic approaches to anatomy, and architectural unity of curves and volume. At a time when abstract forms were popular, Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach were all ultimately in favor of maintaining the integrity of the human body to explore modernist styles. This handsome book underscores their unrelenting search for a novel American visual tradition at the intersection of modernism, historic visual culture, and contemporary popular imagery.

Angels & tomboys : girlhood in nineteenth-century American art by Holly Pyne Connor( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explores the myriad ways artists portrayed young girls, from the sentimental, innocent stereotype to the freespirited individual. Works by John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, and Thomas Eakins, together with those by leading women artists, such as Cecilia Beaux and Mary Cassatt, reveal a new, provocative psychological element not found in early Victorian portraiture, while the mischievous tomboys in Lilly Martin Spencer's paintings and the pure angels in the works of Abbot Handerson Thayer underscore the complexity of girlhood--and of representing that evanescent phase. Essays ... consider the historical, social, and literary contexts of the artworks, drawing on sources as varied as etiquette books, poems, censuses, and the histories of medicine and economics. With more than 130 illustrations--including paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs ..."--Publisher description
Bouguereau & America( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seeking to bring Gallic sophistication and worldly elegance into their galleries and drawing rooms, wealthy Americans of the late 19th and early 20th centuries collected the work of William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) in record numbers. This revelatory volume offers an in-depth exploration of Bouguereau's overwhelming popularity in turn-of-the-century America and the ways that his work--widely known from reviews, exhibitions, and inexpensive reproductions--resonated with the American public. While also lauded by the French artistic establishment and a dominant presence at the Parisian Salons, Bouguereau achieved his greatest success selling his idealized and polished paintings to a voracious American market. In this book, the authors discuss how the artist's sensual classical maidens, Raphaelesque Madonnas, and pristine peasant children embodied the tastes of American Gilded Age patrons, and how Bouguereau's canvases persuasively functioned as freshly painted Old Masters for collectors flush with new money"--
