Lawrence Alma-Tadema by R. J Barrow( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912) was one of the finest and most distinctive of the Victorian painters. Dutch-born, he moved to London in 1879, and became famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, with langorous figures set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean sea and sky." "In this original and penetrating study, Rosemary Barrow presents an absorbing and often amusing portrait of an exuberant personality who carved out a brillant career for himself at the heart of London's artistic and cultural elite. But above all she subjects the paintings to a fresh and rigorous scrutiny, revealing that Alma-Tadema was a highly knowledgeable student of antiquity, who made effective use of precise literary and archaeological allusions to play a game of interpretation with his viewers. Time and again the seeming innocence of the scenes he depicts is subverted by a mischievously placed inscription or statue, suggesting to the initiated a darker and usually risque meaning." "Like his contemporaries, Alma-Tadema was neglected after his death, but his paintings are once again admired for their beauty and their mastery of light, colour and texture. With its fresh and intriguing new insights into his personality and intentions, this book now provides a challenging reassessment of a major artist."--Jacket
Fierce friends : artists and animals, 1750-1900 by Louise Lippincott( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fierce Friends: Artists and Animals, 1750-1900 examines a critical period in our evolving relationship with animals. Between the mid-eighteenth and the early twentieth centuries, the philosophical legacy of the Enlightenment, the mechanical inventions of the Industrial Revolution, and the intellectual transformation sparked by Charles Darwin undermined many of the traditional roles assigned to animals, and overturned our view of them as physically, mentally - and divinely - separated from humans. This book interweaves the history of science and of art in an account of how humans came to understand and appreciate their shared biological ancestry." "Fierce Friends explores how painters, sculptors, illustrators, and ceramists reflected contemporary changes in the perception of animals, incorporating in their work the latest developments in geographical exploration and comparative anatomy, advances in geology and the birth of paleotology, the enthusiasm of amateur naturalists, and the impact of evolution theory. It identifies the importance of illustrators such as Audubon, who were frequently at the forefront of natural history discoveries, and reveals the visionary artists who drew imaginatively on Darwin's theory of natural selection to create mythical beasts. Artists as diverse as Hogarth, Oudry, Gericault, Delacroix, and Van Gogh here demonstrate mankind's increasing awareness of animals as sentient creatures, infusing genres such as animalier painting and portraiture with new meaning and emotional power."--Jacket
Selling art in Georgian London : the rise of Arthur Pond by Louise Lippincott( Book )

11 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Light! : the industrial age 1750-1900 : art & science, technology & society by Andreas Blühm( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the revolutionary changes brought about by the Industrial Age, perhaps the most extraordinary and far-reaching was the transformation of light. Scientists described its hidden laws to the public for the first time. Artists found radical ways of depicting it. Inventors found new ways of making it. The lives of ordinary people changed forever as streets, shops, theaters, and their own homes were brilliantly illuminated, first by gas, and then, even more dazzlingly, by electricity." "This book describes the inventions still with us, like electric light, the microscope and photography, as well as arcane reminders of a vanished world, such as the heliostat, the lithophane and the magic lantern. It portrays a revolution in the arts: Constable inventing daylight, Caspar David Friedrich discovering twilight, the impressionists conjuring up sunlight. And it debates the changing symbolism of light."--Jacket
Light! : the industrial age 1750-1900 : art & science, technology & society by Andreas Blühm( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the revolutionary changes brought about by the Industrial Age perhaps the most extraordinary and far-reaching was the transformation of light. Scientists described its hidden laws to the general public for the first time. Artists found radical ways of depicting it. Inventors found new ways of making it. The lives of ordinary people changed forever as streets, shops, theatres, even their own homes were brilliantly illuminated, first by gas, and then, even more dazzlingly, by electricity." "The story is told here for the first time in its entirety. The book describes the inventions still with us, such as electric light, the microscope and photography, as well as arcane reminders of a vanished world, such as the heliostat, the lithophane and the magic lantern. It portrays a revolution in the arts: the impressionists conjuring up sunlight, Constable redefining daylight, Caspar David Friedrich discovering twilight. And it debates the changing symbolism of light: the meaning of the Enlightenment, the light of God's truth, the nightmarish light of factory furnaces by night."--Jacket

Teenie Harris, photographer : image, memory, history by Cheryl Finley( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles "Teenie" Harris (1908-1998) photographed the events and daily life of African Americans for the Pittsburgh Courier, one of the nation's most influential Black newspapers. From the 1930s to 1970s, Harris created a richly detailed record of public personalities, historic events, and the lives of average people. In 2001, Carnegie Museum of Art purchased Harris's archive of nearly 80,000 photographic negatives, few of which are titled and dated; the archive is considered one of the most important documentations of 20th century African American life (www.cmoa.org/teenie). The book will serve as the definitive publication on the life and work of Teenie Harris, consisting of three significant essays: Cheryl Finley, assistant professor in the history of art at Cornell University, offers the first thorough analysis of Harris as an artist, situating him within the history of 20th?century African American art as well as American documentary and vernacular photography; Larry Glasco, associate professor of history at the University of Pittsburgh, draws on new research to present a detailed biography of the photographer; and Joe Trotter, professor of history and social justice at Carnegie Mellon University, explores the social and historical context of Harris's photographs. The book will also include a foreword by Deborah Willis, professor at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. In addition to comparative illustrations within the essays, the book includes 100 plates of Harris's signature work and a complete bibliography and chronology"--
