Independent spirits : women painters of the American West, 1890-1945 by Patricia Trenton( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brilliantly illustrated with more than 100 color plates, this book is a rich compendium of Western art by women, including those of American Indian, Mexican, African, and Asian heritage. The essays examine economic, social, and political forces that shaped this art over years of profound change. The dynamic growth of the West altered the role of women and opened new opportunities within the dominant culture, beginning in the late nineteenth century. In contrast to the East, the West was less constrained by tradition and social hierarchy: Western women had more freedom than their Eastern counterparts in almost every sphere of creative endeavor. In most Western states women had the vote before 1915, five years before the passage of the 19th Amendment. By 1924 the West had sent the first women to the U.S. Congress and had elected two woman governors (Wyoming and Texas) and a woman mayor of a large city (Seattle). Sometimes following the art currents of the times, sometimes working apart from them, women artists in the West painted in a variety of styles that included Realism, Impressionism, Symbolism, and Surrealism. Many of these women pursued additional careers in order to support the making of art. Some owned art galleries, others avidly collected art, while still others preferred to write art criticism in widely read publications. Many shared their talents by teaching classes and administering art programs in schools and colleges
How the West was worn by Holly George-Warren( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In How the West Was Worn, Holly George-Warren and Michelle Freedman offer a sartorial history of the American West. From the pre-20th-century origins of western style to Hollywood westerns, rodeo stars, cowboy crooners, ranchers and businessmen, good old boys from the Tetons to Dallas are presented in all their tooled, embroidered, sequined, fringed, 10-galloned, gun-toting finery."
Buffalo Bill's Wild West : an American legend by R. L Wilson( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a panoramic celebration of colorful characters who created the image of the West for Americans and for the world. It also celebrates the exciting and often flamboyant accoutrements and costumes which were part and parcel of the stars' public appearance, and honors such characters as William Mathewson, recognized even by Cody himself as the "original Buffalo Bill." It is an unmatched chronicle drawn upon decades of research and collecting, augmented with images by master photographers
Drawn to Yellowstone : artists in America's first national park by Peter H Hassrick( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Old Faithful Geyser, Emerald Spring, the magnificent canyons and falls of the Yellowstone River: these and other sites, familiar to the millions of visitors who travel through Yellowstone National Park each year, have been an inspiration to generations of artists. Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Remington, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and dozens of other artists have braved difficult conditions to capture the splendors of Yellowstone in many media, from delicate watercolors and pen-and-ink sketches to powerful oils and popular lithographs. They have portrayed the animals that lived there, the humans who passed through, and above all the remarkable features that have made Yellowstone a wonderland to so many artists and observers."--Jacket

Western amerykański : Polish poster art and the Western( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In postwar Poland, film poster artists employed the universally recognized symbols of the Western - horse, six-shooter, boots, tin-star badge, Stetson, saddle - to convey violence as a negative force. Unlike many other art forms, the film poster did not fall within the censor's domain because it was not expected to pose a threat to the social order. But messages were conveyed through subtle means of symbol and color. The Polish poster has been likened to the Trojan horse, with the artist smuggling messages onto the streets in the guise of ephemera."--BOOK JACKET. "The posters displayed so strikingly in this book, and discussed in three essays, are from the golden age of Polish poster-making, the mid-1940s to the 1970s."--Jacket

Patterns of progress : quilts in the machine age by Barbara Brackman( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patterns of Progress: Quilts in the Machine Age examines quilts as clues to women's lives, especially women who lived and worked in the West, and to the changes they experienced because of the invention and accessibility of the sewing machine. Amply illustrated with more than 50 beautiful color images, author Barbara Brackman's lively text situates quilts within the culture of the American West. In such a context, quilts become more than just bed coverings: they are cultural artifacts, revealing much about women's lives, their roles and their perceptions of the world. Brackman also examines the ways in which the sewing machine changed women's aesthetic perceptions of the beauty of their work, and how that aesthetic has evolved to the present day
Saddlemaker to the stars : the leather and silver art of Edward H. Bohlin by James H Nottage( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by James H. Nottage, Vice President and Chief Curator at the Autry Museum, Saddlemaker to the Stars is the culmination of ten years of research and writing. Nottage examines Edward Bohlin's personal voyage from his departure from Sweden as a cabin boy aboard a freighter, to his apprenticeship as a cowboy in Montana, to the opening of his first saddleshop in Cody, Wyoming, to the growth of his shops in Hollywood. In the process, he situates Bohlin in his own time, and in the history of the American West."--Jacket
