The art of Dora Carrington by Jane Hill( Book )

26 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the age of thirty-eight Dora Carrington (1893-1932) committed suicide, unable to contemplate living without her companion, Lytton Strachey, who had died a few weeks before. Lytton was the linchpin of a life in which friendships, making a home and her own artistic output jockeyed for attention." "The association with Lytton Strachey and his Bloomsbury friends, combined with her own modesty, have tended to overshadow Carrington's contribution to modern painting, but Jane Hill's important study goes a long way to redress the balance. The author takes a chronological viewpoint, looking at the art Carrington produced in each period and the influences upon it of personal relationships, places, and current events and trends. The immense range of her art - portraits, landscapes, glass paintings and decorative work - reveal Carrington as a significant artist of her period."--Jacket
The sculpture of Gertrude Hermes by Jane Hill( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A graduate of Leon Underwood's Brook Green School of Art in London, Gertrude Hermes (1901-83) trained as a painter and sculptor. Hermes and her husband, Blair Hughes-Stanton, who she met at Brook Green, went on to become leading lights in the early twentieth-century's wood-engraving revival. Although their marriage was short-lived, their exuberant visual inventions for Bunyan;s 'The Pilgrim's Progress' and T.E. Lawrence's 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom' Brought them critical acclaim. Much has been written about Hermes' career as a wood engraver. In contrast, her contribution as a sculptor has been somewhat eclipsed--until now. 'The Sculpture of Gertrude Hermes' presents for the first time a full analysis of the artist's entire sculptural oeuvre. Along with a comprehensive catalogue of Hermes' sculpture, Jane Hill provides a full account of the artist's life in the context of her career as a sculptor. What results is a picture of a pioneering spirit who created busts and heads, functional designs, decorative work and reliefs that are dynamic and unpredictable. Featuring over 140 images, 'The Sculpture of Gertrude Hermes' is a groundbreaking study of an artist so long associated with one art form. This book redresses the imbalance and creates a new and fresh perspective on an important female artist of the twentieth century."--Publisher's website
