Rodin's art : the Rodin collection of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University by Albert E Elsen( )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The late Albert Elsen was the first American scholar to study seriously the work of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, and the person most responsible for a revival of interest in the artist as a modern innovator - after years during which the sculpture had been dismissed as so much Victorian bathos. After a fortuitous meeting with the financier, philanthropist, and art collector B. Gerald Cantor, Elsen helped Cantor build a major collection of Rodin's work. A large part of this collection, consisting of more than two hundred works, was donated to Stanford University's museum by Mr. Cantor, who died in 1996. In size, Stanford's collection is surpassed only by the Musee Rodin in Paris and rivaled only by the collection in Philadelphia
Revolutionary tides : the art of the political poster, 1914-1989 by Jeffrey T Schnapp( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and French and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public assemblies and multitudes in action are fundamental to our notion of political life. Through 120 posters-many never previously reproduced-the book examines the impact of large gatherings of people in politics and society concentrating on the turbulent years of the first half of the 20th century. The posters will be presented in a nearly year-long US exhibition, drawn from the massive collection of Stanford University's Hoover Institution, and augmented by works from the Wolfsonian Museum, Florida International University, and the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University. The exhibition catalog, published in conjunction with the Cantor Arts Center, explores the decisive importance of large gatherings of people and its correlative, the mass medium of poster art, and considers the complex nature of the portrayal of political crowds in the modern period. Schnapp's text frames the featured works within a broader history of the images of the crowd in Western art. The essay aims to sharpen the reader's perspective by creating a synthetic understanding of how emerging principles of popular sovereignty in politics shaped new images and myths of a new, collective sense of our humanity

Pacific Arcadia : images of California, 1600-1915 by Claire Perry( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated catalog presents a fascinating cultural history of an idyllic vision of California that still figures prominently in the American imagination. Currier and Ives lithographs and the work of early European cartographers are juxtaposed with photographs by Carleton E. Watkins, Arnold Genthe, and Eadweard Muybridge, and paintings by Albert Bierstadt, James Walker, and William Hahn, among others." "Perry investigates how and why this vision of a Pacific paradise was developed and marketed to the public, taking as her subject the images produced by early visitors and residents confronted by the peculiarities of California's landscape, the abundance of its natural resources, and the omnipresence of the vast Pacific."--Jacket
The changing garden : four centuries of European and American art by Betsy G Fryberger( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautifully illustrated volume examines the garden as an enduring and evolving cultural resource, in two hundred works by more than one hundred artists. Prints, drawings, photographs, and paintings illuminate the changing aesthetics and uses of gardens from the powerful Medici dynasty's villas in sixteenth-century Florence and Louis XIV's royal showcase at Versailles to such democratic urban parks as New York City's Central Park and San Francisco's Crissy Field, adapted from a former military base."--Jacket
Young America : childhood in 19th-century art and culture by Claire Perry( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an era of both optimism and anxiety about the nation's future, Americans in the nineteenth century focused attention on the cultivation and education of children as future citizens. Contemporary portrayals of children - in fine paintings, popular prints, illustrated primers, and advertisements - helped to shape cultural expectations: pictures of hardy country boys, intent schoolchildren, and little girls practicing embroidery were examples of the ways model Americans should look and behave. At the same time, images showing street urchins, young slaves, or children at work in factories reflected troubling conflicts in society. This appealing book explores representations of children in relation to the currents of American culture, including urbanization, immigration, separate spheres of the genders, and the nation's professed devotion to egalitarianism. A generous selection of illustrations includes well-loved works by such artists as Winslow Homer and Eastman Johnson, as well as fascinating archival images. With engaging depictions of children from varied economic, racial, and geographic backgrounds, Young America opens a new window on the life and culture of the United States during a century of vast change and growth

Arthur Wesley Dow and American arts & crafts by Nancy E Green( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The full range of Dow's creative genius is represented in this volume, reproduced in color." "Two authoritative essays explore Dow's influence and his place within the arts and crafts community of his time."--Jacket
Art of being Tuareg : Sahara nomads in a modern world by Thomas K Seligman( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This excellent volume is an essential addition to the limited scholarship resulting from more than a century of Euro-American fascination with Africa's Tuareg peoples. This catalog, from a collaboratively produced exhibition, examines the Tuareg in multiple contexts, enriching anthropological and art historical studies with essays on Tuareg poetry, music, dress, and gender roles. Attention to Tuareg music usefully balances the study of artfully crafted instruments and traditional musical forms with the contemporary music, often electrically amplified, that has a growing presence in popular world music today. This volume will interest audiences in anthropology, African studies, and geography, in addition to students of global art history. Artists who work with textiles, jewelry, and metalwork will find here beautiful and fascinating artworks that are rarely examined in such depth. Analysis of the signs and symbols repeated in these objects and in other decorative patterns (i.e., architectural decoration) shows how the interpretation of their meanings varies widely, in part because the Tuareg nomads have historically preferred the oral tradition to written documentation
The Virgin, saints, and angels : South American paintings 1600-1825, from the Thoma collection by Suzanne L Stratton-Pruitt( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and Italian and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is astonishingly little literature in English on painting in the Viceroyalty of Peru. Published in association with the Cantor Center for Visual Arts, this exhibition catalogue explores a little known aspect of the history of art that is increasingly appreciated for its energy and originality. Although the initial impetus for paintings in South America was provided by artists who came from Europe, they were soon outnumbered by natives who become proficient in decorating churches and public buildings. The 56 paintings--never previously published--in the Thoma Collection offer an accurate and compelling survey of the diverse schools of painting that developed in the vast regions of the Viceroyalty which yielded the present day countries of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina."--Publisher description
The photography of John Gutmann: culture shock by Sandra S Phillips( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This retrospective volume traces Gutmann's career from his training as a painter in Germany, first under renowned Expressionist Otto Muller, then in the wild, decadent Berlin of the 1930s, through his resolution to leave during Hitler's ascent to power, to his decision to settle in San Francisco. As a Jew, Gutmann was forbidden by the Nazis to exhibit or teach; photojournalism struck him as a useful means of supporting himself as a refugee. He had no training as a photographer and no interest in the medium as a pure art form, but he was fascinated by the popular culture of photography in magazines. Bringing to San Francisco the eye for the bizarre that he had developed in recording the vibrant, cosmopolitan life of Berlin - an eye further sensitized by his status as an exile in a strange country - Gutmann photographed the odd, the morbid, and the freakish with the detachment of an anthropologist examining an exotic culture."--Jacket
Picasso, graphic magician : prints from the Norton Simon Museum by Pablo Picasso( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred and twenty prints by Picasso from the collection of the Norton Simon Museum are presented in this highly readable, fully illustrated, and scholarly catalogue which accompanies the exhibition at the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, at the Toledo Museum of Art, and at the Norton Simon Museum." "The prints include highlights from all major areas of Picasso's graphic work, and are presented here in rare depth. Picasso's formidable printmaking accomplishments cover a range of activity in varied techniques from 1905 to 1970"--Jacket
Tracing the past, drawing the future : master ink painters in twentieth-century China by Xiaoneng Yang( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the Past, Drawing the Future examines a crucial turning point in the development of Chinese ink painting in the twentieth century, a change represented by the beautiful and innovative work of four artists, Wu Changshuo (1844–1927), Qi Baishi (1863–1957), Huang Binhong (1864–1955), and Pan Tianshou (1897–1971). With careers spanning over a century of radical change in China, these artists were instrumental in propelling the ancient tradition of Chinese ink painting into the modern era in the face of compelling Western influences. As a group, their work represents an alternative approach to questions of relevance and modernity

Carleton Watkins : the Stanford Albums by Stanford University( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in upstate New York in 1829, Carleton Watkins ventured west in 1848 to strike it rich. Instead of prospecting for gold, Watkins acquired a talent for photography. Through the 1860s and 1870s, Watkins charted the remote American West, and masterfully captured the vast scale and spirit of the Pacific Northwest. Among his most iconic photographs are the dramatic waterfalls, peaks, and valleys of Yosemite Valley. So moving were these images of the Valley that they were instrumental in convincing the 38th U.S. Congress and President Abraham Lincoln to pass the Yosemite Act of 1864, the first official step toward preserving the region and creating a blueprint for America's National Park System. 'Carleton Watkins: The Stanford Albums' presents over 150 images from three of Watkins's albums - Photographs of the Yosemite Valley (1861 and 1865-66), Photographs of the Pacific Coast (1862-76), and Photographs of the Columbia River and Oregon (1867 and 1870) - from the Stanford University Libraries Special Collections. These images represent the definitive collection of Watkins's highest achievements
