Goya's last works by Jonathan Brown( Book )

19 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) had a prolific career and spent the last four years of his life in Bordeaux with other political emigres from Spain. In those years and just before his departure from Spain, he created a body of work that is little known to the public and consists of small-scale, intimate pieces, including uncommissioned portraits of friends and family, miniature paintings on ivory plaques, and numerous drawings and lithographs. These simple, bold, and brilliant works attest to the artist's continuing vitality in his old age and also offer some insight into his life during that last period in Bordeaux. They are the culminating achievement of a great artist who was, in his own words, "still learning" as he faced death."--Jacket

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) is acknowledged as one of the greatest draftsmen of the 20th century.

A selection of more than seventy works on paper, with extended entries, highlights his stylistic experiments and techniques during this roughly thirty-year period, which begins and ends in a classical mode and encompasses his most radical innovations
Turner's modern and ancient ports : passages through time by J. M. W Turner( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Widely considered Britain's greatest painter, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) is best known for his light-filled landscapes and seascapes. A relentless traveler, Turner often turned his artistic attention to the theme of modern and ancient ports. In the mid-1820s, Turner exhibited two monumental, and controversial, paintings of ports: Cologne and Dieppe. Shocking for their intense luminosity and yellow tonality, as well as for Turner's unorthodox handling of paint, these works marked a transition in the artist's career as he moved away from naturalism and toward a new, poetic topography. This in-depth study of these two seminal paintings also addresses a wide selection of Turner's works in both oil and watercolor from the 1820s, placing them in the context of radical changes in British social and economic structures taking place at the time. Drawing from period travel accounts, contemporary critical commentary, and new technical analyses of Turner's work, this magnificently illustrated book brings a fresh, new perspective to the pivotal middle years of Turner's career"--
