Off the pedestal : new women in the art of Homer, Chase, and Sargent by Newark Museum( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pictures of women portrayed as professional, athletic, and intellectual seem common to us today, but until the late nineteenth century, such representations of strong, self-reliant women were virtually, if not completely, absent from the visual arts and literature." "Off the Pedestal is the first book to explore the radical change that occurred in the representation of women immediately after the Civil War. Three critical essays draw on the visual culture of the period to show how postbellum social changes in the United States brought issues of subordination and autonomy to the surface for women in much the same way that they did for blacks. As women began attending college in greater numbers, entering professions previously dominated by men, and demanding greater personal freedom, these "new women" were featured more frequently in the visual arts and in a manner that made it clear that they had ambitions outside the domestic sphere." "Featuring more than seventy color and black-and-white images, Off the Pedestal is a window into the ways that identities and attitudes are forged on the stage of visual culture."--Jacket
Robert Indiana : beyond Love by Robert Indiana( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With essays by René Paul Barilleaux and Sasha Nicholas Robert Indiana's popular LOVE works have made the esteemed Pop artist a household name. Their fame and ubiquity have also served to eclipse the rest of his dynamic, conceptually charged work. 'Robert Indiana: Beyond LOVE' is a compelling reassessment of the artist's contributions to American art during his long and prolific career. Indiana has explored the power of language, American identity and personal history for five decades. Although visually dazzling and apparently cheerful on the surface, his imagery has a depth and a darkness that draws on his own biography as well as on the myths, history and literature of the United States.

George Rickey : kinetic sculpture : a retrospective by George Rickey( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presenting both indoor and outdoor work, this volume examines the depth and breadth of George Rickey's sculptural oeuvre between 1950 and 2000 and its place in the history of American art. Trained originally as a painter, George Rickey turned to sculpture in 1949. In 1964 his kinetic piece Two Lines Temporal "established him internationally as a major figure in the history of kinetic sculpture," according to art historian Nan Rosenthal. In 1966 he gave up teaching to devote himself entirely to his creative work. The recipient of 10 honorary doctorate degrees and many awards and honors, George Rickey built a stellar career as an exhibiting artist, author, and professor of art in the U.S. and abroad."--Amazon
The Orient expressed : Japan's influence on Western art, 1854-1918 by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1872, the critic Phillipe Burty coined the term Japonisme to describe the fascination with Japanese art and culture that swept into France and beyond, maintaining itself in the visual and decorative arts as well as architecture, music, theatre, literature, and graphic design."--Publisher
Coney Island : visions of an American dreamland, 1861-2008 by Robin Jaffee Frank( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Called "America's playground," Coney Island is a world-famous resort and national cultural symbol that has inspired music, literature, and films. This groundbreaking book is the first to look at the site's enduring status as inspiration for artists throughout the ages, from its inception as an elite seaside resort in the mid-19th century, to its evolution into an entertainment mecca for the masses, with the eventual closing of its iconic amusement park, Astroland, in 2008 after decades of urban decline. How artists chose to portray Coney Island between 1861 and 2008--in tableaux of wonder and menace, hope and despair, dreams and nightmares--mirrored the aspirations and disappointments of the era. This dazzling catalogue highlights more than 200 images from Coney Island's history, including paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, posters, film stills, architectural artifacts, and carousel animals. An extraordinary array of artists is represented, from George Bellows, William Merritt Chase, Reginald Marsh, and Joseph Stella to Diane Arbus, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Robert Frank, Red Grooms, Weegee, and Swoon. Essays by prominent scholars analyze Coney Island through its imagery and ephemera as both a place and an idea--one that reflected the collective soul of the nation."--Publisher's description

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New image sculpture by René Paul Barilleaux( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As our culture relocates into digital realms, numerous artists have returned to a studio practice grounded in 'doing' and 'making.' New Image Sculpture unites the work of artists who freely borrow from the worlds of ethnographic and material culture, folk art, fashion, hobby crafts, DIY and the shelves of Home Depot
Beauty reigns : a baroque sensibility in recent painting by Stephen Westfall( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book assembles the work of 13 emerging and mid-career abstract painters--Jose Alvarez, Kamrooz Aram, Charles Burwell, Annette Davidek, Fausto Fernandez, Nancy Lorenz, Ryan McGinness, Beatriz Milhazes, Jiha Moon, Paul Henry Ramirez, Rex Ray, Rosalyn Schwartz and Susan Chrysler White--whose art is characterized by high-key color, obsessive layering of surface imagery, repeated patterns, stylized motifs and a tension between melancholy and the sublime. It builds directly on Barilleaux's award-winning exhibition and book New Image Sculpture, which examined how contemporary artists transform widely available, often non-art materials into fanciful replications of the ordinary. Beauty Reigns identifies a recent trend towards exoticism, exuberance and optimism.0Exhibition: McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, USA (11.5.-17.8.2014)

Telling tales : contemporary narrative photography( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Telling Tales' presents a survey of work by artists who record stories through pictures, whether real or imagined. Sixteen groundbreaking photographers are featured, including such greats as Gregory Crewdson, Nan Goldin, Jessica Todd Harper, Erwin Olaf and others, with photographs spanning the early 1970s to the present. While some contemporary artists explore photographic imagery as it is mediated by technology, these artists exploit photography's ability to present a momentary, frozen narrative. Images are staged for the camera or highly manipulated through digital processes, yet they often resemble a casual snapshot or movie still. Primarily in color and often large-scale, the photographs reference everything from classical painting and avant-garde cinema to science fiction illustration and Alfred Hitchcock.
