Van Gogh's van Goghs : masterpieces from the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam by Richard Kendall( Book )

15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Van Gogh's Van Goghs presents seventy paintings from the extraordinary collection of the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, home to the single greatest assemblage of the artist's paintings, drawings, and letters. The collection is based on works acquired directly from the artist by his brother Theo, an art dealer and the source of Vincent's financial and emotional support. All periods of Vincent van Gogh's brief but intensely productive career are represented: his earliest paintings in The Netherlands; his responses to French Impressionism in 1886; the images he painted while in hospitals in Arles and Saint-Remy in southern France; and his last, feverishly creative works in Auvers-sur-Oise. Van Gogh's Van Goghs represents a unique opportunity to sample the largest and most varied Van Gogh collection in the world. It accompanies a major exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art."--Jacket

The unknown Monet : pastels and drawings by James A Ganz( Book )

19 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claude Monet (1840-1926) is one of the best-known and most beloved painters in the history of art, with myriad publications and exhibitions devoted to his oeuvre. And yet there remains a previously undiscovered aspect of his career: his surprisingly significant role as a draftsman. This book is the first to focus on Monet's pastels, drawings, and sketchbooks, offering a new interpretation of the artist's life and work." "Citing recently discovered, unpublished documents that overturn the accepted image of the artist, The Unknown Monet reveals an extensive group of graphic works created over the course of the artist's career, many of which are unknown to the general public and to scholars: beautiful pastels, stunning black-chalk drawings, and fascinating sketchbooks, which include pencil studies that relate to many of his paintings. The book also shows how Monet exploited the print media to promote his art." "The most important publication on Monet to appear in a generation, this volume is essential to anyone interested in his work, Impressionism, and nineteenth-century French culture."--Jacket
Cézanne by himself : drawings, paintings, writings by Paul Cézanne( Book )

42 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite being one of the most influential nineteenth-century artists, Cézanne was far from being a conventional hero, and was ill at ease in the cafes and salons of the Paris art world. His work shows a classical conern with form and structure which sets it apart from the Impressionist mainstream, and led a subsequent generation of art historian to dub hime the first 'Post-Impressionist'. This book provides fascinatin evidence of the artist's friendships and family life and through his own writings and the reminiscences of his contemporaries show the paradoxes and contradictions of his personality

Degas landscapes by Richard Kendall( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Degas is renowned for his masterful studies of the human body - powerfully rendered paintings of dancers, jockeys, washerwomen and bathers. It is less well known, however, that he also produced challenging and varied landscapes at almost every phase of his career - from his early travels in Italy, to his association with the Impressionist movement, and into his final decades. Remarkably, Degas chose the subject of landscape for his only one-person show in 1892

Degas and the Little Dancer by Richard Kendall( Book )

18 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautiful book is the first full-length study of the subject and offers entirely new perspectives on a work that is widely regarded as a key precursor of twentieth-century sculpture. In three chapters, Richard Kendall analyzes the origins of this distinctive figure in Degas's ballet imagery; explores the condition of French sculpture in the 1870s and the significance of Degas's choice of materials, procedures, and exhibition strategy; and describes the critical responses to the first public display of the statuette, particularly those comparing it with dolls and the art of ancient Egypt. Douglas W. Druick then explores the fascinating association between the sculpture and views of criminality current in the artist's day, and for the first time in the history of the work, Arthur Beale examines the technical character of its variant forms using laboratory analysis and X-ray photography. The book presents sixty-five color plates of major works by Degas that encompass the genesis and legacy of the Little Dancer, as well as a wealth of comparative plates and preparatory drawings, some never before published
Picasso looks at Degas by Elizabeth Cowling( Book )

20 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents documented instances of Spanish painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso's (1881-1973) direct responses to French painter and sculptor Edgar Degas's (1834-1917) works, as well as more conceptual and challenging affinities between their individual bodies of work. Illustrated essays explore the artists' parallel interests in modern urban life, ballet dancers, activities such as bathing and combing the hair, photography, and the challenges of sculpture. The book also provides the first extended analysis of Picasso's engagement with Degas's art in his final years, when he acquired several of the French artist's brothel monotypes and reworked some of them in his own prints

Women artists in Paris, 1850-1900 by Laurence Madeline( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris was the epicenter of art during the latter half of the nineteenth century, luring artists from around the world with its academies, museums, salons, and galleries. Despite the city's cosmopolitanism and its cultural stature, Parisian society remained strikingly conservative, particularly with respect to gender. Nonetheless, many women painters chose to work and study in Paris at this time, overcoming immense obstacles to access the city's resources. 'Women Artists in Paris, 1850-1900' showcases the remarkable artistic production of women during this period of great cultural change, revealing the breadth and strength of their creative achievements. Guest Curator Laurence Madeline (Chief Curator at Musées d'art et d'histoire, Geneva) has selected close to seventy compelling paintings by women of varied nationalities, ranging from well-known artists such as Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, and Rosa Bonheur, to lesser-known figures such as Kitty Kielland, Louise Breslau, and Anna Ancher
Van Gogh and nature by Richard Kendall( Book )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The celebrated painter Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) had a lifelong fascination with the natural world. He spent his youth in rural Holland, and the country's flat landscapes, trees, flowers, and birds would feature in his early art. After he moved to Paris, he encountered new radical thinking about art and humans' changing relationship with nature. Later, in Provence and Auvers, he discovered unfamiliar terrain, flora, and fauna that further influenced his artistic ideas and subject matter. Van Gogh's images of such diverse environments reflect not only his immediate surroundings but also the artist's evolving engagement with nature and art. Van Gogh and Nature is an eye-opening new catalogue that chronicles the artist's ongoing relationship with nature throughout his entire career. Among the featured works are Van Gogh's drawings and paintings, along with related materials that illuminate his reading, sources, and influences. Vivid color photography and explanatory texts based on new research by the authors clarify a central theme of Van Gogh's oeuvre. " --2e de la couverture

Degas and the ballet : picturing movement by Richard Kendall( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edgar Degas is best known for his vivid studies of dancers. He captured them warming up, practising at the bar or mid-performance with a stunning immediacy and accuracy, on canvas, paper and in bronze. Illustrated with drawings, pastels, paintings, prints and sculpture, this beautiful book proposes that Degas's ballet imagery is more than simply an expression of his lifelong engagement with the figure in movement. Exploring the artist's innovative approach to his subject matter in the context of contemporary developments in photography and film, Degas scholars and exhibition co-curators Richard Kendall and Jill DeVonyar bring together photographs taken by the artist and his contemporaries and samples of film from the period. This study establishes the importance of early visual technologies to the practice of Degas's work for the first time."--Publisher's website
Giovanni Boldini in impressionist Paris by Sarah Lees( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Distinguished by his brilliantly energetic brushwork, Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931) was one of the most prominent Italian artists of the late nineteenth century. Still, he has remained little known beyond his native country. Giovanni Boldini in Impressionist Paris is the only publication on Boldini in English in a generation and accompanies the first major exhibition of his works outside of Europe." "Born in Ferrara, Boldini moved to Paris in 1871, where he lived for the remainder of his life. This important volume focuses on his work from 1871 to 1886, which reflects the influence of his contemporaries - Degas, Manet, Caillebotte, Meissonier, and Fortuny, among others. It features Boldini's fanciful paintings made for the art market and depictions of the city around him - from the bustling streets and squares to cafes, theaters, and concert halls - as well as paintings of friends and models, and a selection of later portraits that established him as one of the quintessential portraitists of the Belle Epoque."--Jacket

Drawn to painting : Leon Kossoff drawings and prints after Nicolas Poussin by Richard Kendall( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1995 and 1999, Leon Kossoff, immersed himself in looking at the work of the seventeenth-century French artist Nicolas Poussin." "Throughout his career, Kossoff has worked from paintings by the great artists of the past drawing from them as he does from daily life, until both become part of the same working environment. However, the arrival of a major Poussin retrospective at the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 1995 gave Kossoff the opportunity, for the first time, to spend day after day surrounded by his source of inspiration, drawing quickly and incisively with charcoal and pastel or, more remarkably, straight on to etching plates. This book, containing over fifty full-page colour illustrations, is the first publication to examine this important new body of work."--Jacket
