The natural man observed : a study of Catlin's Indian gallery by William H Truettner( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indians and their lifeways have provided one of the most popular themes in American art since the discovery of the New World. Sixteenth and seventeenth century artists who accompanied exploring expeditions to the East and West coasts sought to create pictures which would satisfy the curiosity of stay-at-home Europeans about the appearances and customs of the Indians they encountered. By the second quarter of the nineteenth century another motive began to encourage artists to picture Indians - a growing fear that those tribes who still lived beyond the rapidly advancing frontier of white settlement would be destroyed by white men?s diseases, wars, and liquor, or that their traditional picturesque customs would be immutably altered through contracts with civilization before artists could compile visual records of those Indians? great leaders and of their strange customs. No artists felt that urgency more strongly than did George Catlin

Picturing old New England : image and memory by Picturing Old New England: Image and Memory (Exhibition)( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When we think of New England, we envision village greens surrounded by neat, white-framed houses; tall elms and church spires; country stores; Yankee farmers; sailing ships; rocky coastlines; brilliant autumn foliage. Despite the fact that there is a New England of cities, factories, and an increasingly diverse ethnic population, it is the Old New England that Americans have always treasured, finding in it a kind of "national memory bank". This beautiful book examines images of Old New England created between 1865 and 1945, demonstrating how these images encoded the values of age and tradition to a nation facing complex cultural issues during the period
Painting Indians and building empires in North America, 1710-1840 by William H Truettner( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Europeans who first settled North America were endlessly intrigued by the indigenous people they found there; even before the colonials began to record the landscape, they drew and painted Indians. This study offers a new visual perspective on westward expansion through a survey of the major Indian images painted by Euro-American artists before and after the American Revolution. William H. Truettner's accessible readings of paintings by artists such as Benjamin West, Gilbert Stuart, Charles Bird King, and George Catlin relate these images to social and political events of the time and tell us much about how North American tribes would fare as they fought to survive during the second half of the nineteenth century."--Publisher's description
George Catlin's souvenir of the North American Indians : a facsimile of the original album by George Catlin( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume contains fifty exquisite watercolors each with a facing page of hand-penned text. The title page is signed by Catlin and dated 1849. The watercolor plates are based on paintings from Catlin's Indian Gallery, a body of works he created and exhibited in the 1830s and 1840s. The paintings, based on Catlin's direct observations of Native life, include depictions of individuals, dances, and hunting scenes. Catlin's narrative describes the persons and events portrayed."-- Book jacket

The two art histories : the museum and the university by Stephen Deuchar( Book )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many museum professionals today believe that university-based art history focuses too much on theory and the social agency of art, neglecting the aesthetic dimensions of the art object. Conversely, many academics feel that museums have become preoccupied with the quest for money and audiences, making them an increasingly unlikely source of innovative scholarship. In this collection of essays, 17 figures from both sides of the art world - museum professionals and university scholars - explore the questions underlying the often tense relationship between the two main branches of the discipline. The contributors to this work include Dawn Ades, Andreas Beyer, Richard R. Brettell, Stephen Deuchar, Sybille Ebert-Schifferer, Ivan Gaskell, Eckhard Gillen, Richard Kendall, John House, Patricia Mainardi, Griselda Pollock, Mark Rosenthal, Barbara Maria Stafford, Gary Tinterow, William H. Truettner and Michael F. Zimmermann. The afterword is by Richard Brilliant
