Hearts of our people : Native women artists( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women have long been the creative force behind Native American art, yet their individual contributions have been largely unrecognized, instead treated as anonymous representations of entire cultures. 'Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists' explores the artistic achievements of Native women and establishes their rightful place in the art world. This lavishly illustrated book, a companion to the landmark exhibition, includes works of art from antiquity to the present, made in a variety of media from textiles and beadwork to video and digital arts. It showcases more than 115 artists from the United States and Canada, spanning over one thousand years, to reveal the ingenuity and innovation fthat have always been foundational to the art of Native women."--Page 4 de la couverture
The Eloquent object : the evolution of American art in craft media since 1945 by Marcia Manhart( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aptly titled, this splendid tour de force treats readers to multifaceted investigations of memorable objects "shimmering with consequence," from the formally sublimeHarvey Littleton's prismatic glass arcs, Laura Andreson's quixotic luster-glazed porcelains; to the socially portentousJudy Chicago's feminist tableware; the satiricRobert Aronson's ceramic finger-key typewriter; the harrowingJames Surl's cruciform wood mobile, "Needle Man"; the technically awesomeStanley Lechtzin's electroformed silver jewelry; and just plain kitschKenny Scharf's "Van Chrome Television." The authors, curators of the exhibition at Tulsa's Philbrook Museum that formed the basis for this volume, highlight new directions over the last two decades in work in clay, glass, metals, fibers and wood

Green woods & crystal waters : the American landscape tradition by John Arthur( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Green Woods and Crystal Waters examines American landscape painting in the second half of the twentieth century through the works of 89 artists. Keeping the city at a safe distance, it focuses on the pastoral views and dramatic wilderness that have provided such a powerful American subject over two centuries. Formally and expressively diverse, the works range from the objective depiction of the physical appearance of nature to the romantic or mystical use of landscape as a vehicle for poetic and spiritual concerns to the expressionist's reshaping of nature to follow the curvature of interior moods." "Includes 100 color illustrations, checklist of the exhibition, bibliography, and index of artists."--Jacket

Monet and the Seine : impressions of a river by Helga Kessler-Aurisch( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his career, French artist Claude Monet (1840-1926) used the Seine as his testing ground for documenting on canvas the transformative effects of light and atmosphere. He produced many ethereal, evocative, and poetic paintings of the meandering river, which remained his favorite subject and also provided solace throughout his life. This beautiful book brings together fifty of Monet's most glorious paintings of the Seine, from the early works focusing on Argenteuil, Le Havre, and Paris, to the works on Lavacourt and Ve;theuil, and culminating with the stunningly beautiful works that make up the acclaimed series Mornings on the Seine, which depicts an intimate stretch of the Seine near Giverny. These paintings not only offer special glimpses into Monet's creative process but also introduce the concept of the series-a concept that would influence the art of future generations. Monet and the Seine features gorgeously reproduced images and engaging essays by four distinguished scholars."
The Eugene B. Adkins collection : selected works( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Eugene B. Adkins (1920-2006) spent nearly four decades acquiring his collection of Native American and American southwestern art. His vast assemblage includes paintings, photographs, jewelry, baskets, textiles, and ceramics by many of the Southwest's most renowned artists and artisans. This volume features full-color reproductions of significant works from the Adkins Collection, some of which are reproduced here for the first time. Adkins began collecting in the 1960s, when American southwestern art enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. Ultimately his holdings encompassed works by such distinguished American artists as Maynard Dixon, Dorothy Eugenie Brett, Charles Bird King, Alfred Jacob Miller, Charles M. Russell, and Joseph H. Sharp. In addition, Adkins was a passionate and prescient connoisseur of Native American art and artifacts, and his wide-ranging collection of works by Native artists includes paintings by T. C. Cannon, sculpture by Maria Martinez, and jewelry by Charles Loloma, all of which are represented in this book. Along with its rich photographic sampling of works by Native and non-Native artists, this book offers essays by art historians and curators, whose areas of expertise coincide with Adkins's own interests." -- From dust jacket

Another world : the Transcendental Painting Group by Michael Duncan( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founded in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico, in 1938, at a time when social realism reigned in American art, the Transcendental Painting Group (TPG) sought to promote abstract art that pursued enlightenment and spiritual illumination. The nine original members of the Transcendental Painting Group were Emil Bisttram, Robert Gribbroek, Lawren Harris, Raymond Jonson, William Lumpkins, Florence Miller Pierce, Agnes Pelton, Horace Towner Pierce and Stuart Walker. They were later joined by Ed Garman. Despite the quality of their works, these Southwest artists have been neglected in most surveys of American art, their paintings rarely exhibited outside of New Mexico. Faced with the double disadvantage of being an openly spiritual movement from the wrong side of the Mississippi, the TPG has remained a secret mostly known only to cognoscenti. Another World: The Transcendental Painting Group aims to address this slight, claiming the group's artists as crucial contributors to an alternative through-line in 20th-century abstraction, one with renewed relevance today. This volume provides a broad perspective on the group's work, positioning it within the history of modern painting and 20th-century American art. Essays examine the TPG in light of their international artistic peers; their involvement with esoteric thought and Theosophy; the group's sources in the culture and landscape of the American Southwest; and the experience of its two female members

Die Essenz der Dinge : Design und die Kunst der Reduktion by Mathias Schwartz-Clauss( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

?The Essence of Things? seeks to investigate the motifs and motivations of reduction in design. Beginning with a look at the broad horizons of the theme, this richly illustrated catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name places a central focus on industrial design. Its extensively researched and vivid presentations consider the importance of technological and economic conditions as well as the dialogue between design and art and the changing ethical standards applied to design. It traces the unassuming heroes of daily life, examines the concept of man as the measure of all things and finds meaning in omission as a paradoxical intervention -- Book jacket

Amazing! Mel Bochner prints : from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his family foundation by Mel Bochner( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 50 years, American conceptualist Mel Bochner (born 1940) has been shaping dialogs between art and language through exhibition concepts, paintings and sculptures that embrace systems and structures to reveal their cracks and limitations, undermining the means we use to comprehend the world. Bochner created his first prints in 1973 at the invitation of publisher Robert Feldman of Parasol Press (who introduced a generation of minimalist and conceptual artists to printmaking through his work at Crown Point Press). Since then, Bochner has employed many different forms of printmaking, using and abusing its material possibilities and its unpredictability to counter the methodical fashion in which plates and stencils are cut, characters per line are fixed, or print runs set. This volume surveys Bochner's longstanding engagement with various types of printmaking, from aquatints to monoprints
