Edward W. Redfield : just values and fine seeing by Constance Kimmerle( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia and arguably the stylistic leader of the Pennsylvania impressionist school of painting, Edward W. Redfield (1869-1965) was fascinated by the forces that color an individual's reaction to nature. His paintings reflect an engagement with the American experience in an unsentimental impressionist style. Redfield understood that art is an expressive activity rooted in sensibility and feeling." "During the first decade of the twentieth century, Redfield was one of the most popular and widely exhibited painters in America. His paintings captured the rawness and energy of America during a period of transformation from a predominantly agrarian society to an industrialized, capitalist nation." "With access to the Redfield family archives, Constance Kimmerle is able to broaden the understanding of the artist and his work. Using primary sources, including Redfield's personal letters and his journals, Kimmerle creates an intimate portrait of one of America's greatest impressionist painters."--Jacket

Thomas Eakins' exploration of the mechanism and laws of human expression and understanding in themes of mental effort and creative activity by Constance Kimmerle( )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Thomas Eakins has been regarded as an artist interested in accurately transcribing objects and visible experiences, recent scholarship has begun to explore the iconographic complexity of his work. Still almost no consideration has been given to Eakins' concern to communicate how evidence of visual experience and consciousness in general is conditioned by the mind and the order of nature. The purpose of this study is to examine the development and significance of Thomas Eakins' interest in those principles and processes that structure man's mental life and underlay his expressive movements
Paul Evans Crossing Bounderies and Crafting Modernism( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using his welding, metallurgy, and jewelry design skills, designer-craftsman Paul Evans (1931-1987) established a reputation as a creative designer of unique sculpted metal furniture. Constantly experimenting with new materials, technologies, and designs, his shop operated much like an industrial laboratory, and his highly innovative experimental approaches to metal have attracted an international following, especially over the past decade. This first comprehensive survey of Paul Evans's work will document Evans's role in the midcentury American studio furniture movement, his approach to furniture as sculpture and abstract composition, and his unremitting new approaches to metal. Opening at the Michener and then traveling to Cranbrook Art Museum, 'Paul Evans: Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism' will be comprised of some sixty-five works, spanning the artist's entire career with choice examples of Evans's early metalwork and jewelry, collaborative pieces made by Evans and Phillip Lloyd Powell during the fifties when they shared a studio, as well as a comprehensive selection of Evans's studio work representing his sculpted steel; verdigris copper; copper, bronze and pewter; argenté sculpted bronze, and cityscape techniques. The show will also include examples of Evans's sculpture as well as a selection of work he produced for Directional Furniture Company.--
