Like breath on glass : Whistler, Inness, and the art of painting softly by Marc Simpson ( Book )
15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through an innovative manner of handling paint, a group of American artists around 1900 created deceptively simple canvases that convey images of shimmering transcience, visions suggested rather than delineated. Focusing on this singular aesthetic characteristic - softness - this book explores this painterly phenomenon
William M. Harnett by William Michael Harnett ( Book )
6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his short but productive career, William Michael Harnett (1848-1892) became the great American master of trompe-l'oeil still-life painting. His works, popular with the public long before they were appreciated by the art critics, "fool the eye" with their convincing, sharp-edged definition of form and careful rendering of materials. This volume provides the first thorough examination of Harnett's career and its significance for the history of American art. Twenty-two essays by a roster of leading scholars examine three major areas: Harnett's relationship to his contemporaries, among them painters, patrons, critics, and the general public; his formative training and experiences; and the meaning of his themes for the audience that supported him. These essays discuss not only Harnett's own technical skill and artistic development, but also the aesthetic issues of illusionism and trompe l'oeil, Harnett's relationship to other painters working in a similar vein, and the implications of his subject matter. Ultimately, the essays help to resolve the question of how Harnett's technically skillful imitations of real objects fit the definition of "art" and what his popularity says about the culture in which he worked and lived. Each of the editors has written an essay for this volume; other contributors include Henry Adams, Maria Chamberlin-Hellman, Nicolai Cikovsky, Jr., Elizabeth Jane Connell, William H. Gerdts, Elizabeth Johns, Judy L. Larson, David M. Lubin, Chad Mandeles, Roxana Robinson, and Paul J. Staiti. The forty-nine works reproduced in full color and arranged chronologically provide the first comprehensive survey of Harnett's work. A bibliography, chronology, and thorough index add to the reference value of this handsome volume
Uncanny spectacle : the public career of the young John Singer Sargent by Marc Simpson ( Book )
10 editions published in 1997 in English and French and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors contend the canvases present a fresh view of Sargent's aspirations and ambitions, representing a metaphoric self-portrait of the artist as a young man. The early paintings, their relationship to one another, and their reception also shed light on the complex, cosmopolitan art world in which Sargent lived

Winslow Homer : poet of the sea by Winslow Homer ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Organised by geographic location, this book reveals Homer's keen ability to capture the quintessence of nature, from the raw coast of Maine to the balmy shores of the Caribbean, through his remarkable capacity to adapt materials and techniques to the locale. The works assembled simultaneously capture the unique landscape of their geographic settings, issues of pictorial representation in general, and the universality of man's relationship to the sea." "Through a series of essays by distinguished European and American scholars, Winslow Homer: Poet of the Sea offers a fresh exploration of the American master and his life-long proccupation with the sea"--Book jacket
