Samuel Palmer by Timothy Wilcox( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the best loved but also the least understood of British artists, Samuel Palmer (1805-1881) exhibited at the Royal Academy aged fourteen and produced many of the visionary landscapes for which he is most famous before reaching the age of thirty. Deeply influenced by the artist William Blake, his portrayals of pastoral life in the Kent village of Shoreham hint at a deeper, spiritual reality behind the activities and rituals of the rural community. Later works engage with the burning controversies of the day, including religion and the rise of mass culture." "This long-overdue survey is the first to examine Palmer's career within the artistic and cultural context of his time. It examines his struggle for recognition and the role played by critics in determining how his work was received, as well as delving behind his apparently idyllic representation of Shoreham to explore the realities of rural life."--Jacket

Tapestry : a woven narrative by Caron Penney( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and Norwegian and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tapestry: A Woven Narrative initially focuses on European tapestry and features significant historical images derived from extensive international tapestry collections. The book addresses the developing status of historical factory houses, the differing roles of tapestry artists and manufacturers, discusses how these roles have changed over time and looks in further detail at the socio-historical context of the featured works. The book also looks in detail at the current tapestry scene, beginning in earnest with the textile work of Henry Moore 20 years ago. Now, established artists across the globe, significantly in North America, Australia and New Zealand, have begun appropriating the medium to present their work and ideas in a previously unexplored fashion, creating a fascinating juxtaposition between the socio-cultural documentation of many historical works and the more abstract, modern and personal themes often dealt with in tapestries today. The book includes works from notable modern artists such as Annika Ekdahl, Chuck Close, Fred Tomaselli, Grayson Perry, Francesca Lowe, Jaime Gili, Henry Moore, KB Kitaj and Kara Walker. Tapestry: A Woven Narrative also discusses the practical aspects of tapestry production, taking in both historical methods and those employed by the few specialist tapestry houses flourishing in the world."--Publisher description
The triumph of watercolour : the early years of the Royal Watercolour Society 1805-55 by Timothy Wilcox( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boudin to Dufy : impressionist and other masters from the Musées des beaux arts, Le Havre by Musée des beaux-arts du Havre( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The channel port of Le Havre played a key role in the development of Impressionist painting. It was there that Monet painted Impression, sunrise, the work that gave the movement its name. Many other artists of the period were associated with the town, from Monet's teacher Boudin to the colourful and exuberant favourite of a younger generation, Raoul Dufy. The beauty of the light on the coast attracted landscape artists throughout the nineteenth century. This was not a simple history, parts of the coastline were rapidly changing with the growth of the port at Le Havre and the emergence of Trouville as the leading seaside resort for the whole of France. It was on this coast that painters first began to paint the explicitly modern life of the tourist and holidaymaker on the beaches, bringing Parisian invaders face to face with the traditional imagery of the forces of the elements. For Boudin, such paintings were an explicit counter to traditional landscapes peopled by the stock imagery of rural peasants. The painters who worked in and around Le Havre made choices of subject matter and style that were a vivid expression of the contemporary debate on the art of landscape painting. What were the appropriate subjects for the landscapist? And how should they be treated?

The ceramic art of James Tower by Timothy Wilcox( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Tower (1919-88) is widely regarded as one of the most distinctive figures in post-war British ceramics. Since his death over 20 years ago, his work has been often cited for its dramatic visual qualities, its subtle exploration of the boundaries of art and craft, and its lyrical integration of references to nature and the cosmos into an essentially abstract language of form and surface decoration. This is the first single publication to be devoted to his work and will reveal to a new audience the extraordinary range and quality of his achievement. Tower's career was unusual in inhabiting the worlds of fine art and ceramics which, in the 1950s and 1960s, still had only a low level of inter-penetration. Teaching at Corsham brought him into contact with some of the pioneering painters of post-war abstraction, including William Scott, Peter Lanyon and Howard Hodgkin, and as a potter Tower showed his work alongside Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie, contributing to a re-definition of modern craft. During the 1960s and 1970s he worked in white terra cotta and bronze, representing a diversity of sculptural practice during a period in which sculptors such as Anthony Caro and Phillip King were experimenting with new materials. From the late 1970s until his death, Tower concentrated again on glazed ceramic forms and was a highly original contributor to the 'New Ceramics' ..."--Publisher description

A day in the sun : outdoor pursuits in art in the 1930s by Timothy Wilcox( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ground-breaking exhibition focuses on an overlooked strand in British painting of the 1930s. It reveals a small group of figure painters, situated stylistically between the avant-garde abstractionists and the entrenched Edwardian traditions of belle peinture, who were looking for ways of being both modern and in touch with a wide public. Their crisp, realist style was one which enjoyed a vogue across Europe, and has been explored in a number of recent exhibitions on the Continent, but the full extent of the movement has never been investigated in its British context." "The artists include Stanley Spencer and William Roberts, painters whose contribution to British painting between the wars is only now being fully recognised. Alongside them are shown a host of lesser names, including Maxwell Armfield, Laura Knight and Harold Williamson. Their paintings of swimmers, cyclists and sunbathers promote an aspect of our own culture in the 1930s which has long been concealed beneath the shadow of similar activities in Germany, where Freikorperkultur was put to the service of a more sinister ideology. Yet, these British paintings may not be as innocent as they seem, either. The exhibition also includes travel posters, press photographs and printed ephemera, all of which demonstrate the penetration and cross-fertilisation of this imagery across a wide range of visual culture."--BOOK JACKET
