Discovered lands, invented pasts : transforming visions of the American West by Jules David Prown( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A common theme of western American art--from the depictions of Indians by early explorers to the monumental landscapes of Albert Bierstadt to the vibrant images of Georgia O'Keeffe--is the transformation of the land through European-American exploration and resettlement. In this handsome book, leading authorities look at western American art of the past three centuries, reevaluating it from the perspectives of history, art history, and American studies." "Jules David Prown begins the book by discussing the need for interdisciplinary approaches to broaden the study of western American art. Nancy K. Anderson then calls for a reconsideration of western art as art rather than documentation and for the adoption of new methods to probe its aesthetic, historical, political, and cultural complexities. William Cronon explores what an environmental historian might learn from American landscape art, concluding that each image must be read as a multilayered view intertwining past, present, and future within a larger context of progress and expansionism. Examining representations of American Indians, Brian W. Dippie finds that early works pictured Indians caught up in a process of dramatic change while later artists showed them frozen outside of time; when the frontier ended, western art made nostalgia its defining characteristic. Martha A. Sandweiss argues that the ways in which views of the American west and its peoples reached nineteenth-century audiences--through large edition prints, book illustrations, or theatrical exhibitions--significantly affected both the images and the meanings attached to them. Susan Prendergast Schoelwer challenges popular perceptions of the frontier as a womanless domain, discovering abundant pictures of Native American women in the art of the western fur trade. Howard R. Lamar concludes by discussing the changing perceptions of western artists and inhabitants of their region's landscape in the twentieth century."--Source inconnue

This magnificent volume provides a full appreciation of his talent as an artist."--Amazon
George de Forest Brush : the Indian paintings by Nancy K Anderson( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George de Forest Brush (1854/1855-1941) created an important series of paintings of American Indians that was much celebrated in his time but has been seen rarely since. Brush combined extraordinary technical skills acquired during several years of training in the studio of Jean-Leon Gerome with firsthand experience living among the Arapahoe, Shoshone, and Crow Indians in Wyoming and Montana. This book, the first scholarly study of Brush's Indian paintings, features detailed discussions of individual paintings, interpretative essays exploring the historical and cultural context in which the paintings were produced, a comprehensive chronology, and lavish color reproductions of numerous paintings not shown publicly since the nineteenth century."--Jacket
The American Pre-Raphaelites : radical realists by Linda S Ferber( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together insights from a distinguished group of scholars, The American Pre-Raphaelites: Radical Realists examines the history and legacy of this often-overlooked group of American artists who were profoundly influenced by John Ruskin (1819-1900), the most influential art critic of the Victorian era, and his call for a revolutionary change in the practice of art--to leave tradition behind, exit the studio, work outdoors, and reproduce nature's "truth" with exacting detail. Published in celebration of Ruskin's two-hundredth birthday, The American Pre-Raphaelites includes some eighty works by Thomas Charles Farrer, Fidelia Bridges, Charles Herbert Moore, Henry Roderick Newman, and William Trost Richards, among others. New research reveals that many of these artists sought reform not only in the practice of art, but also in the broader political arena--many were abolitionists, and Farrer himself had served in the Union army. They followed Ruskin's dictum to record the natural world with strict fidelity, but they also created works of stunning beauty that often include a rich political subtext.--Provided by publisher

American impressionism and realism : the Margaret and Raymond Horowitz collection by Nicolai Cikovsky( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years American painting has enjoyed one of the most lively, interesting, and deserved revivals in the art world. Museums all over the country have rediscovered, dusted off, and added to their American collections, installed them handsomely, and presented them in numerous worthwhile exhibitions, thereby helping to reopen the eyes of Americans to an immensely appealing and important part of their artistic heritage. Although art museums have good reason to be pleased with this activity, it should be remembered that private collectors have often been the pioneer reviving force in American art. They, through their enthusiasm and acumen, have shown the way for the museums. Currently nineteenth-century painting is probably the most restudied and sought-after American art, and the work produced by the last generation of that century and first two decades of the twentieth--impressionist and realist pictures--has begun to receive particular attention. Margaret and Raymond Horowitz, as a result of their perceptive collecting, have been primary leaders of the large and ever-growing group that appreciates the lyric beauty of this work. The Horowitzes have collected examples in painting and drawing of the highest quality, which, brought together in this exhibition, isolate some of the most noticeable characteristics of the art of the period--quietude, simplicity, delicacy, and intimacy. The consistent quality of the Horowitz collection is a remarkable accomplishment and a tribute to the collectors' knowledge and taste. The Metropolitan Museum is grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Horowitz for sharing with the public what they have achieved as collectors of American art
