Toil and plenty : images of the agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890 by Christiana Payne( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the ideological uses of agricultural imagery during the period 1780-1890, exploring how and why the myth of rural contentment was perpetuated by these images and how the images contrast with the actual features of 19th-century rural life
Prospects for the nation : recent essays in British landscape, 1750-1880( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating book provides a picture of the changing state of British landscape studies. Art historians, historians, geographers, and literary. scholars discuss a wide range of topics: the role of landscape in the construction of a national identity; tourism and the politics of the picturesque; the relation of scientific observation to naturalistic landscape; and the depiction of rural labor. In so doing, they point up the extent to which scholarship has moved from concerns with individual artists to broader issues of representation and society.The authors challenge a number of orthodoxies in chapters that reconsider the role of women amateurs in landscape painting, recast the notion of John Sell Cotman's genius, explore the imaging of the nation, and examine the development of the history of watercolor painting. With essays by Maxine Berg, Stephen Copley, Stephen Daniels (with Susanne Seymour and Charles Watkins), Elizabeth Helsinger, Andrew Hemingway, Alun Howkins, Charlotte Klonk, Kay Dian Kriz, Anne Pullan, Kim Sloan, Sam Smiles, and the editors, the book is pluralistic in content and multidisciplinary in nature. It not only indicates where matters stand at the moment but suggests directions for future scholarship
John Brett : Pre-Raphaelite landscape painter by Christiana Payne( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide to John Brett (1831{u2013}1902) investigates the painter who was seen as the leader of the Pre-Raphaelite landscape school. In addition to exploring the familiar early works, including The Val d'Aosta and Stonebreaker, it provides information on his later, less-known coastal and marine paintings. Brett's turbulent friendship with John Ruskin is discussed, as are his relations with his beloved sister, Rosa, and his partner Mary, with whom he had seven children. His fervent interest in astronomy, his love of the sea, and his lifelong pursuit of wealth and recognition are all examined in this reassessment, which concludes with a catalogue raisonné of his works
English accents : interactions with British art, c. 1776-1855 by CHRISTIANA PAYNE( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the century following the foundation of the Royal Academy in 1768, British art had an international reputation: prints spread knowledge of the work of British artists around the globe, and it was widely seen as the product of a modern, commercial society, and much admired by artists as diverse as Goya in Spain, Delacroix in France, and Bierstadt in America. In recent years, scholars working on this period have become increasingly aware of the international context of their subject, but there has been no systematic analysis of the reception of British art abroad. This collection of essays looks at the uses made of the paintings of Reynolds, Hogarth, Lawrence and their contemporaries on the continent of Europe, and in the colonies and ex-colonies of Australia and America. The authors go beyond the simple issue of 'influence' to consider how ideas and artistic conventions originating in the British Isles were adapted, appropriated or resisted in these new environments. In the process, some surprising views of British art emerge, demonstrating how a multi-faceted view from the outside can correct and enrich the narrative produced within a national school, and revealing some of the important connections that are obscured when art is studied, as it so often is, within narrow national boundaries."--Provided by publisher
Where the sea meets the land : artists on the coast in nineteenth-century Britain by Christiana Payne( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author explores artists' responses to the coast and looks at the different ways politicians, tourists, theologians, poets and scientists would have viewed the coast. She shows how the images fit into the wider narratives of responses to social change and the transformation of religious belief. Special attention is paid to the development of lighthouses and lifeboats, and to the interest in the social organisation of fishing villages, both of which provided important subject matter for artists." "Cartoons, photography and book illustrations are considered alongside significant oil paintings and watercolours. Their themes range from satirical humour to the most serious philosophical reflections. The book discusses the work of well-known artists, including J. M. W. Turner, John Constable, William Powell Frith and Winslow Homer, as well as others, such as James Clarke Hook and Henry Moore, whose contributions have been little studied in modern times."--Back cover

The power of the sea : making waves in British art 1790-2014 by Kerr Janette( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the sublime spectacle of crashing waves to the vast and open expanse of the oceans, the sea has long fascinated artists in Britain. 'The Power of the Sea' offers a multi-disciplinary approach to this fascinating subject, showcasing work by internationally-renowned contemporary artists alongside key historical works from national and regional art collections. Many of the earliest artists in the exhibition - George Morland, Francis Danby, John Brett and Walter Langley - emphasized the Romanticism of the sea through images depicting the human costs of shipwrecks and their aftermath. Meanwhile JMW Turner and John Constable were captivated by its elemental nature - its fury and fluidity, breeze and light. By the late nineteenth century, the sea seemed more benign, a source of leisure and health: Henry Moore, David James, and Sydney Mortimer Laurence experimented with different ways to capture the movement of the waves

Silent witnesses : trees in British art, 1760-1870 by Christiana Payne( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, naturalists, poets and artists were united in their love of trees. William Gilpin began his influential 'Remarks on Forest Scenery' (1791) with the bold statement that?It is no exaggerated praise to call a tree the grandest, and most beautiful of all the productions of the earth.? Illustrated books and tree portraits celebrated the beauty, antiquity and diversity of individual, and particularly ancient specimens. A wide range of drawing manuals showed artists and amateurs how to express their?character? and?anatomy?, as if they were human subjects. Paintings of woodland scenes provided welcome relief from city life, and studies of exotic trees reflected the growth of tourism and empire. The arrival of new species from all over the world aroused much excitement and scientific activity. At the same time, the native trees? oak, ash, beech, elm? acquired new resonance as emblems of the rural countryside. Many of Britain?s most important landscape painters, including Paul Sandby, John Constable, Samuel Palmer, Edward Lear, and the Pre-Raphaelites, made themselves experts in the drawing and painting of trees
Fire : flashes to ashes in British art 1692-2019 by Gemma Brace( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fire traces the representation of fire in British art across the last four centuries. In turns destructive and creative, fearsome and fascinating, it's a subject loaded with symbolism, ritual and emotion. Unsurprisingly, the subject of fire has drawn in artists throughout the ages. It features in the work of major British artists such as J.M.W. Turner, John Martin, J.M. Whistler, Joseph Wright of Derby and William Blake, who are presented here alongside contemporary work by artists such as Cornelia Parker, David Nash, Mark Wallinger and Douglas Gordon. The book looks at the many facets of fire; its ability to express concepts on a human scale, such as warmth, anger and passion; as a storyteller fundamental to religion and mythology; its effects on our language - we talk of burning desires and blazing rows; as a driving force behind the progress of civilisation through science, industry and technology; as a political tool sending visceral message with shocking finality; its contribution to advances in cooking, pottery, metal and glass; as a signifier of absence, the soul, loss and transcendence. Three newly commissioned essays on the subject explore fire in the process of making and how artists' approaches to fire have changed over time, recording historical, religious, domestic or natural events as well as exploring fire as a material phenomenon informed by contemporary themes and issues, combining art and science. This book seeks to address the dual nature of fire showing that fire continues to be welcomed and feared in equal measure. Exhibition: Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, UK (15.06.-01.09.2019)

AIR : visualising the invisible in british art 1768-2017 by CHRISTIANA PAYNE( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Air' explores the tradition in British art of finding inspiration in the air around us and skies above us. The book weaves its way through British art including early experiments with air and studies of clouds, to representations of breath (blowing glass, balloons) and wind instruments to flying creatures (real and imaginary) and wartime skies, before considering the physical possibilities of flight which shifted our perceptions of the landscape, as aerial photography made the view of the earth from above available to wider audiences. Contemporary work introduces new environmental issues to the narrative, making reference to climate change and air-borne disease, as well as considering air as an integral component in the process of making art, to demonstrate how air is everywhere. 00Exhibition: Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, UK (16.06.-03.09.2017)

William Henry Hunt : country people by William Henry Hunt( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking its lead from W.H. Hunt's watercolour The Head Gardener, c. 1825, that is part of The Courtauld Gallery's permanent collection, this focused display will be first to investigate Hunt's depiction of rural figures in his work of the 1820s and 1830s. Consisting of twenty drawings borrowed from collections across the United Kingdom, William Henry Hunt: Country People will bring together watercolours depicting country people in their working or living environments, from farmer and gamekeeper to stonebreaker and gleaner. The representation of these country men, women and children, closely observed, raises questions about their status and way of life at a time of rapid agricultural and social change. These profound changes are also reflected in the literature of the period. William Henry Hunt was one of the most admired watercolourists of the 19th century. Better known as 'Bird's Nest Hunt' for his intricate still lives of flowers, fruit and birds' eggs, he exhibited prolifically at the Old Water Colour Society. His works were sought after by collectors, notably John Ruskin, a serious champion of his work.'00Exhibition: Courtauld Institute, London, UK (24.06. ? 17.09.2017)
