Hokusai by C. J Holmes( )

34 editions published between 1898 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his elegant brush paintings and masterful woodblocks, Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) became one of Japan s most internationally-renowned artists. A master of ukiyo-eart, he singlehandedly transformed the art form from a simple style focused on courtesans and famous actors into a grander style depicting the beauty of nature seen through landscapes and wildlife. His style of art and his subjects evolved as many times as he changed his name, but Hokusai s talent as an artist remained constant and his influential role in later art movements such as Art Nouveau and Impressionism remains eternal

Memoirs of the life of John Constable, composed chiefly of his letters by Charles Robert Leslie( Book )

8 editions published between 1911 and 2006 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C.R. Leslie's memoir of his friend John Constable was first published in 1843 (with an expanded second edition in 1845) and has remained the standard biography of Constable ever since. The book is chiefly compiled from Constable's own correspondence and conversation; indeed its great authority arises from the fact that the story is told almost throughout in the subject's own words. Constable wrote as he painted, with an acute and serious eye on the subject, and with a spontaneous presentation of imagery; he also showed over and over again a robust wit and a taste for gossip. Leslie's memoir is thus still valuable on two counts: it is a classic biography, in which the author's warm and engaging personality is portrayed as freshly as on the first day of publication, and it is a art-historical source-book for the life and opinions of England's greatest landscape painter. This edition contains Leslie's complete and unabridged text. The preface and explanatory notes are by Jonathan Mayne, who also selected and annotated the 72 illustrations
