Monet in the 20th century by Claude Monet ( Book )

By the beginning of the twentieth century, Claude Monet was a figure of national importance in France - the patriarch of impressionism and the country's foremost landscape painter. This richly illustrated book examines for the first time the body of work that Monet completed from 1900 until his death in 1926, a period during which he was enormously productive, increasingly wealthy, and ever more venerated

Impressions of light : the French landscape from Corot to Monet by George T. M Shackelford ( Book )
9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Impressions of Light introduces a new level of complexity into the discussion of French landscapes. Rather than considering the landscape as a steady, linear development, it takes into account the many crosscurrents and intersecting paths in French art, from the foundations of the Barbizon School through the Post-Impressionist period. In addition, it studies the landscape in a variety of media - painting, printmaking, drawing, and photography - exploring both the individual artists' perceptions and the ways in which they influenced one another." "With over eighty paintings and seventy works on paper from the Museum of Fine Arts' collections, and published to accompany a major exhibition, Impressions of Light encompasses more than one hundred years and fifty-five artists. The book includes an authoritative opening essay, detailed discussions of the works by specialists in the field, and thorough documentation for each object. It takes a broad view, yet never loses sight of the intricacy and variation that make the landscape so endlessly appealing."--BOOK JACKET
Degas, the dancers by George T. M Shackelford ( Book )
10 editions published between 1984 and 1994 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Degas and the nude by George T. M Shackelford ( Book )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Degas and the Nude" is the first book in a generation to explore the artist's treatment of the nude from his early years in the 1850s and 1860s, through his triumphs in the 1880s and 1890s, all the way to his last decades when the theme dominated his artistic production in all media. With essays by leading American and French critics, it provides a new interpretation of Degas' evolving conception of the nude, situating it in the subject's broader context among his peers in nineteenth-century France. It explores how Degas exploited all of the body's expressive possibilities, how his vision of the nude informed his notion of modernity, and how he abandoned the classical or historical form in favor of a figure seen in her own time and setting--whether engaged in overtly carnal acts or just stepping out of an ordinary bath

Paul Gauguin : Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? by George T. M Shackelford ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Each volume in the MFA Spotlight series illuminates a significant work in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, offering a brief and engaging introduction to its creation and history.0The life of Paul Gauguin is one of the richest and most mythic in the history of Western art. Abandoning a career in banking, a family, and his homeland, in the last decade of the nineteenth century he sailed from France to the South Seas to seek a life ‘in ecstasy, in peace, and for art’. During his years in Tahiti, although beset by sometimes appalling poverty, illness, and despair, Gauguin brought forth a wealth of astonishing and deeply felt paintings, culminating in this monumental meditation on what he called the ‘ever-present riddle’ of human existence posed in the work’s title. This compact introduction to Gauguin’s masterpiece explores its relation to European models as well as to the artist’s own companion pieces, emphasizing not only that the painting responded to current French art but also that its creator always intended it to find its ultimate audience in Paris. It also provides an enlightening entry into the work’s formal composition and complex symbolism, drawing on Gauguin’s writings to help explore the philosophical and personal struggles that led to the creation of this endlessly mysterious, profoundly beautiful work
