Art & architecture by Judith H Bonner( )

18 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Potomac to the Gulf, artists were creating in the South even before it was recognized as a region. The South has contributed to America's cultural heritage with works as diverse as Benjamin Henry Latrobe's architectural plans for the nation's Capitol, the wares of the Newcomb Pottery, and Richard Clague's tonalist Louisiana bayou scenes. This comprehensive volume shows how, through the decades and centuries, the art of the South expanded from mimetic portraiture to sophisticated responses to national and international movements. The essays treat historic and current trends in the visual arts and architecture, major collections and institutions, and biographies of artists themselves. As leading experts on the region's artists and their work, editors Judith H. Bonner and Estill Curtis Pennington frame the volume's contributions with insightful overview essays on the visual arts and architecture in the American South."--Publisher's website

William Edward West, 1788-1857 : Kentucky painter by Estill Curtis Pennington( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rise-to-fame-and-decline-into-obscurity scenario is predictable enough for any artist. Perhaps no less predictable is the rescue effort, complete with color transparencies, rediscovered works of art retrieved from dusty storage bins, and crumbling, yellowed letters with one phrase that sets the entire story right. In the case of William Edward West, the "imperfect information" had not been perfected since Dunlap's day, and provided for me the essential challenge. -- Author's preface

Kentucky : the master painters from the frontier era to the Great Depression by Estill Curtis Pennington( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the twenty-five years since The Kentucky Painter from the Frontier Era to the Great War opened at the University of Kentucky Art Museum, interest in the topic has steadily increased. This volume is a survey of the major painters of note, organized by chronological and thematic topics. Viewers will recognize some of the familiar names here, especially Matthew Harris Jouett and Paul Sawyier. But they may be surprised by the work of little-known but accomplished artists whose work merits serious consideration as part of the astonishingly vibrant artistic tradition in Kentucky. For a place of fairly recent frontier origins, a small populace, and extremely disparate regions, the Commonwealth has certainly had - and continues to have - its fair share of proficient artists. The artists presented here were not "regional" painters working in isolation. Many were quite well-trained. This book celebrates their achievements even as it seeks to nurture an ongoing interest in Kentucky's art history."--Jacket
