Graham Sutherland : landscapes, war scenes, portraits, 1924-1950 by Graham Vivian Sutherland( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book revisits a major figure from a somewhat neglected generation which dominated the British art scene in the 1930s and 1940s. Focusing on the period from the mid-1930s - when Sutherland established his identity as a modern painter - to the 1950s, when his influence began to wane, it portrays the types of work that gave rise to a widespread consensus amongst fellow artists and critics that Sutherland was the most exciting and compelling voice in contemporary British painting." "This long-overdue and much-requested exhibition and accompanying catalogue (there has not been a substantial Sutherland show in London since 1982) comprises 85 oils and works on paper drawn from public and private collections throughout the UK, and offers a selective interpretation of his painting rather than the usual career retrospective."--Jacket
Edward Burra by Simon Martin( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward Burra (1905-76) was an English painter who is best known for his paintings of the seedy underworld of urban life. Yet, as this fascinating new monograph on his work reveals, his interests were much broader, incorporating landscape and still-life paintings, stage designs and book illustration. Somewhat neglected by histories of modern art because his singular vision was often at odds with the mainstream art world, his work is now due for a re-appraisal. Published to accompany a major exhibition of Burra's paintings and drawings at Pallant House Gallery, this important book represents the first full-scale monograph on Edward Burra and reproduces 100 key paintings alongside drawings and a range of fascinating contextual material. It positions Burra as a major figure in the history of 20th-century art, placing his work alongside that of the German Expressionists and other important contemporaries and influences, such as Surrealism and the macabre. Long awaited, this book will be widely welcomed by all those with an interest in the art of this fascinating maverick and documenter of modern life."--Publisher's website
Rubens drawing on Italy by Jeremy Wood( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Paul Rubens was one of the most inventive and prolific artists in the history of western art. After his early training in Antwerp, Rubens spent formative periods in Italy between 1600 and 1608. This book explores the ways in which Rubens studied, copied, and adapted the work of artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian. A large group of drawings by Italian artists, many of which were owned by Rubens and extensively transformed by him, are illustrated. These works show how Rubens's dialogue with Italian art went far beyond mere imitation and how his copies and adaptations attracted the attention of scholars and collectors from his lifetime onwards."--Jacket
Angels & urchins : the fancy picture in 18th-century British art by Martin Postle( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michelle Stuart : drawn from nature by Michelle Stuart( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American artist Michelle Stuart (*1938 in California) is internationally known for a rich and diverse body of work stemming from her lifelong interest in the natural world and the cosmos. Working in drawing, sculpture, photography, video, installation and site-specific earthworks, she has pursued a subtle and responsive dialogue with nature, distinct from the epic gestures of American Land Art. Spanning the period from the late 1960s to the present day, this publication encompasses a varied and unconventional range of media, while highlighting Stuart's major contribution to the practice of drawing."--Publisher description

A day in the sun : outdoor pursuits in art in the 1930s by Timothy Wilcox( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ground-breaking exhibition focuses on an overlooked strand in British painting of the 1930s. It reveals a small group of figure painters, situated stylistically between the avant-garde abstractionists and the entrenched Edwardian traditions of belle peinture, who were looking for ways of being both modern and in touch with a wide public. Their crisp, realist style was one which enjoyed a vogue across Europe, and has been explored in a number of recent exhibitions on the Continent, but the full extent of the movement has never been investigated in its British context." "The artists include Stanley Spencer and William Roberts, painters whose contribution to British painting between the wars is only now being fully recognised. Alongside them are shown a host of lesser names, including Maxwell Armfield, Laura Knight and Harold Williamson. Their paintings of swimmers, cyclists and sunbathers promote an aspect of our own culture in the 1930s which has long been concealed beneath the shadow of similar activities in Germany, where Freikorperkultur was put to the service of a more sinister ideology. Yet, these British paintings may not be as innocent as they seem, either. The exhibition also includes travel posters, press photographs and printed ephemera, all of which demonstrate the penetration and cross-fertilisation of this imagery across a wide range of visual culture."--BOOK JACKET

Art of Tess Jaray by Tess Jaray( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the geometry of pattern, repetition and colour within her surroundings, British artist Tess Jaray has explored painterly perspective for more than five decades. Alongside a large group of Jaray's paintings of enigmatic forms and colours - which celebrate the vitality inherent within archetypal rhythms and patterns - this first monograph explores her contemporary influence. From Kazimir Malevich and Lucio Fontana to Italian architecture and Islamic mosaics, this volume situates the artist within the tradition of abstract painting and the history of art
The first cut : paper at the cutting edge( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First Cut is a major exhibition featuring new and recent works by over 30 international contemporary artists who work with paper in revolutionary ways. Featuring established and emerging artists from America, Australia, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Romania, Sweden and the UK, it explores how the humble scrap of paper is transformed into extraordinary creations, through cutting, folding and sculpting. The title alludes to the beginning of the creative process but also suggests a violent and sinister action.
