Towards a modern art world( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To speak of 'the British' in conjunction with 'the Modern' suggests a linkage that goes against the grain of the narrative which dominates our understanding of the history of western art from the eighteenth century to the present day. Although works produced by British artists do occasionally appear in that story, as a rule they have featured as insignificant, or have simply been left out altogether. Towards a Modern Art World aims to account for the marginal position of British art by approaching that marginality as an historical problem. In a series of essays dealing with institutions as well as individual painters and sculptors, this book charts the development of the London art world from the 1730s to the 1930s. Academies, public exhibitions, and commercial galleries feature together with artists as diverse as William Hogarth, Sir Joshua Reynolds, W.P. Frith, Walter Sickert, and Henry Moore

George Stubbs, 1724-1806 by George Stubbs( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This thorough appreciation of the eighteenth century master of animal painting looks beyond the artist's sporting scenes to explore Stubbs' full range of work. Although George Stubbs is best known for his images of hounds and horses charging round the British countryside, the painter was also an avid student of the broader animal world. Among his subjects were zebras, cheetahs, and moose, which he drew from life in the exotic menageries where they were kept. This volume features gorgeous color reproductions of paintings that highlight the painter's genius for combining realism and lyricism. It includes numerous drawings and prints--among them the exceptional studies for his "The Anatomy of the Horse" series. Informative essays discuss Stubbs' superb aesthetic sensibility, his far-reaching scientific studies, and his place in the pantheon of eighteenth-century European painters."--Publisher's website

The Anglo-Florentine Renaissance : art for the early Tudors( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under the rule of Henry VII (r. 1485-1509) England became a powerful nation. The Tudor court sought to express its worldliness and political clout through major artistic commissions, employing Florentine sculptors and painters to create lavish new interiors, suitable for entertaining foreign dignitaries, for its royal palaces. These were exemplified by Henry VIII's palace of Nonsuch, so named because no other palace could match its magnificence. Italian sculpture, painting, and tapestries of the day reflected an interest in portraiture and dynastic monuments, epitomized in England by the royal tomb projects created by Baccio Bandinelli, Benedetto da Rovezzano, and Pietro Torrigiani. Generously illustrated throughout, The Anglo-Florentine Renaissance traces the artistic links between Medicean Florence and Tudor England through essays by an international team of scholars and explores how the language of Florentine art effectively expressed England's political aspirations and rose to prominence as a new international courtly style."--Provided by publisher
