British watercolors : drawings of the 18th and 19th centuries from the Yale Center for British Art by Scott Wilcox( Book )

13 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prospects for the nation : recent essays in British landscape, 1750-1880( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating book provides a picture of the changing state of British landscape studies. Art historians, historians, geographers, and literary. scholars discuss a wide range of topics: the role of landscape in the construction of a national identity; tourism and the politics of the picturesque; the relation of scientific observation to naturalistic landscape; and the depiction of rural labor. In so doing, they point up the extent to which scholarship has moved from concerns with individual artists to broader issues of representation and society.The authors challenge a number of orthodoxies in chapters that reconsider the role of women amateurs in landscape painting, recast the notion of John Sell Cotman's genius, explore the imaging of the nation, and examine the development of the history of watercolor painting. With essays by Maxine Berg, Stephen Copley, Stephen Daniels (with Susanne Seymour and Charles Watkins), Elizabeth Helsinger, Andrew Hemingway, Alun Howkins, Charlotte Klonk, Kay Dian Kriz, Anne Pullan, Kim Sloan, Sam Smiles, and the editors, the book is pluralistic in content and multidisciplinary in nature. It not only indicates where matters stand at the moment but suggests directions for future scholarship
Sun, wind, and rain : the art of David Cox by David Cox( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The watercolor Sun, Wind, and Rain, painted in 1845, typifies the concerns with representing light and atmosphere and weather that lie at the heart of David Cox's landscape art. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1783, Cox was destined to become a major figure in the linked worlds of landscape painting and watercolor painting in the first half of the nineteenth century. No significant study of the artist has been undertaken in more than a century. This illustrated volume focuses attention on Cox, filling in the details of his biography and illuminating his contributions to British landscape painting." "Scott Wilcox investigates Cox's artistic identity and his legacy. Other essays address such topics as Birmingham's cultural milieu; myths about Cox's life; the papers he chose; his painting in oils; and the fakes, forgeries, and misattributions that have challenged attempts to identify his oeuvre with certainty."--Jacket
Victorian landscape watercolors by Scott Wilcox( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English landscape watercolor painting, a perfect marriage of genre and medium, entered a lively period of experimentation in style and content during the second half of the nineteenth century, with rich and diverse results. Through all the changes of style and technique and all the debates over the appropriate use of the medium, it was watercolor's ability to convey the timeless truth and reality of the natural world that mattered to artists, critics, and audiences. British watercolors of the Victorian period continued to observe an essential humility before nature; they remain fresh and compellingly immediate because they derived in the first place from the artists' heartfelt communion with the elements of nature. Victorian Landscape Watercolors begins with a consideration of the continuing influence of the great generation who earlier in the century, during the extraordinary parallel rise of watercolor and landscape painting, had established the landscape watercolor as a major British contribution to the arts. The second chapter examines the role of the landscape watercolor in the aesthetic thought of John Ruskin, whose critical voice played a dominant role in shaping that art. The third chapter looks at the place of landscape within the watercolor societies and its development as it appeared in their annual exhibitions. The final chapter deals with the tug of new and old, foreign and native in the later Victorian period. The book also features 126 watercolors, from public and private collections in America and England, all reproduced in full color and accompanied by individual commentaries. Among the 76 artists represented are David Cox, Sr. and Jr., Walter Crane, William Holman Hunt, Edward Lear, Samuel Palmer, James Mallord William Turner, James McNeill Whistler, and Ruskin himself, along with dozens of lesser-known masters of the medium. Victorian Landscape Watercolors is published in conjunction with the first exhibition to survey this period of this particularly British contribution to the arts; the exhibition, organized by the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut, will also be seen at the Cleveland Museum of Art and in Birmingham, England

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This handsome and engaging book looks at how Vinters and Turkey Mill is a superb example of Sandby's art and an important document both of the rise of industry in the British countryside and of the intertwined developments of papermaking and the art of painting in watercolor.

The English prize : the capture of the Westmorland, an episode of the grand tour( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Laden with works of art acquired by young British travelers on the Grand Tour in Italy, the British merchant ship Westmorland sailed from the Italian port of Livorno before being captured by French naval vessels and escorted to Malaga in southern Spain. The artistic treasures on board were purchased by King Carlos III of Spain, and the majority were deposited in the collections of the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. There they resided, unknown, until recent research, using original inventories that survive in the Academia's archives, identified the Westmorland's rich cargo.The English Prize reveals the gripping story of the ship's capture and the disposition of its artistic contents, which included Raphael Mengs's Perseus and Andromeda, Pompeo Batoni's portraits of Frances Bassett and Lord Lewisham, and watercolors by John Robert Cozens. This volume illuminates the cultural phenomenon of the Grand Tour and the young travelers who acquired the trove of books and art works on board the Westmorland but were never able to enjoy their purchases"--

Bruce Davidson/Paul Caponigro : two American photographers in Britain and Ireland by Jennifer Watts( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bruce Davidson (b. 1933) and Paul Caponigro (b. 1932) are two of the greatest American photographers of their generation. Working in different traditions, and exhibiting fundamentally distinct approaches, they are both brilliant observers whose art inspires and provokes. This book, the first to pair the two, examines the work they produced during visits to Britain and Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s. The gritty sensibility that made Bruce Davidson's series Brooklyn Gang such a sensation was unmistakable as he trained his camera on the gamut of British society, travelling from London to Scotland and later to the mining region of Wales. Paul Caponigro, steeped in a formalist black-and-white landscape tradition, made expressive portraits of prehistoric stone circles, dolmens, and ancient Irish churches in the landscape. Bruce Davidson/Paul Caponigro brings the work of these artists together into a dramatic visual dialogue."

Great British watercolors : from the Paul Mellon collection at the Yale Center for British Art by Matthew Hargraves( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a period of a little over fifteen years, beginning in the early 1960s, Paul Mellon (1907-1999) assembled one of the world's greatest collections of British drawings and watercolors. As part of his extensive collecting of British art, he purchased several distinguished private collections of British watercolors, enriching and expanding them with purchases reflecting his own taste." "This catalogue of an exhibition celebrating the centenary of Paul Mellon's birth features eighty-eight outstanding watercolors from the fifty thousand works of art on paper with which he endowed the Yale Center for British Art. The selection spans roughly the hundred years from the emergence of watercolor painting in the mid-eighteenth century to its apogee in the mid-nineteenth. These works highlight the diversity of British watercolor painting, showcasing both landscape and figurative subjects by some of the principal artists working in the medium, including Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Rowlandson, William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, and John Constable."--Jacket
