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

22 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Gauguin Tahiti by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life of Paul Gauguin is one of the richest and most mythic in the history of Western art. A banker and "Sunday painter," he left behind family and homeland and sailed to the South Seas, seeking a life "in ecstasy, in peace, and for art." Gauguin Tahiti, the first major retrospective of the artists work in fifteen years, offers an in-depth study of the fabled Polynesian years that have so defined our image of the painter. Alongside essays by leading American and French critics on every aspect of Gauguins art, from the legendary canvases to his sculptures, ceramics, and innovative graphic works, are discussions of the Polynesian society, culture, and religion that helped shape them; an in-depth biographical narrative of the artists life, with the many epiphanies, frustrations, and discoveries that make his time in the South Seas one of the most mythologically potent episodes in the history of Western art; and a chronicle of his changing fortunes in the century since his death. At the center of it all is Gauguins 1897 masterpiece, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, the summation and crowning glory of his mature career, presented with unprecedented depth and authority. Over one hundred years later, Gauguin remains one of the most enigmatic and attractive figures of 19th-century art, the very pivot of modernism, and Gauguin Tahiti finally portrays this crucial period of his life in all its color and drama
Impressions of light : the French landscape from Corot to Monet by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 635 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."--Jacket
Degas, the dancers by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

14 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustave Caillebotte : the painter's eye by Mary G Morton( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than fifty of Gustave Caillebotte's (1848-1894) strongest paintings illustrate the fertile period from 1875 to 1885 when he was most closely allied with the impressionists. Accompanying the National Gallery of Art's major new exhibition, coorganized with the Kimbell Art Museum, this volume explores the inquisitive, experimental, almost fearless vision that inspired his masterworks"--
Degas and the nude by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 447 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.--
Monet : the early years by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This elegant volume is the first to be devoted to the young genius of Claude Monet (1840-1926). Bringing together the greatest paintings from his early career-including his first Salon-exhibited work, the Kimbell Art Museum's La Pointe de la Heve at Low Tide; Dejeuner sur l'Herbe (Luncheon on the Grass) and The Magpie from the Musee d'Orsay; and The Green Wave and La Grenouillere from the Metropolitan Museum of Art-it features essays by distinguished scholars, focusing on the evolution of Monet's own distinctive mode of painting. Through the 1860s, the young painter absorbed and transformed a variety of influences, from the lessons of the Barbizon school and his mentor Boudin to the challenges posed by his friends Manet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Sisley. Artistic innovation and personal ambition shaped the work of the celebrated impressionist painter from the very start of his long and illustrious career

"Vincent van Gogh: The Painter and the Portrait, produced in conjunction with the international loan exhibition Van Gogh: Face to Face, explores the artist's changing conception of the portrait from his first experiments with drawing character studies around 1880 to his astonishing explorations of expressive color at the end of the decade. Illustrated with more than 50 color plates, the text incorporates selections from van Gogh's extraordinary letters, bringing the artist's singular vision of portraiture to life. This collection features portraits of the artist, his friends, neighbors, family, and other figures from his daily life offering the reader an opportunity to see inside van Gogh's world, so passionately evoked in his canvases."--BOOK JACKET
Monet : the late years by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the later years of his life, Claude Monet (1840-1926) stayed close to home, turning to his extraordinary garden at Giverny for inspiration. The garden became a laboratory for the artist's concentrated study of natural phenomena-and for a revolutionary shift in the appearance and execution of his paintings. This beautiful publication examines the last phase of Monet's career, beginning in 1913, bringing together approximately 60 of his greatest works from this period. More specifically, Monet: The Late Years focuses on the series that Monet invented and reinvented at Giverny, reevaluating many large-scale works that have long been considered preparatory studies, reexamining their relationship to and status as finished works. Essays by a roster of distinguished scholars address topics such as Monet's plans for displaying his late paintings, the mechanics of his painting technique, and the critical and market reception of these works. Through this visually stunning reassessment, Monet's late works, still astonishing a century later, recast the titan of Impressionism as a radical modern painter."

Claude Monet : the truth of nature by Claude Monet( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Capturing fleeting natural impressions played a central role in the art of Claude Monet (1840-1926). He deeply engaged with the landscape and light of different places, from the metropolis of Paris to the Seine villages of Argenteuil and Giverny. This lavishly illustrated volume explores the development of Monet's art from the 1850s to the 1920s, focusing on the places, both at home and on his frequent travel, from which he drew inspiration for his painting. In addition, the book traces the critical shift in Monet's art that occurred when he began to focus on series of the same subjects such as haystacks, poplars, and the water lilies and pond at his meticulously designed garden in Giverny. Insightful and revealing, the book deepens our appreciation of Monet's art and allows us to experience anew his gift for bringing the natural world to life."
