This essay traces the life and collecting interests of William Wilson Corcoran, his remarkable support of art and artists in his native city, and the founding and growth of his crowning achievement, the museum that bears his name. Following Corcoran's death in 1888, the institution grew to encompass a school of art (today the Corcoran College of Art + Design) and much expanded collections and exhibitions. The history of the museum's American paintings collection is discussed within the context of American art patronage and institutional collecting. --+-+96180400063242713ocn212376107book20080.63Strong, Lisa MariaSentimental journey : the art of Alfred Jacob MillerExhibition catalogs"Alfred Jacob Miller (1810-1874) was the first artist to journey into the heart of the Rocky Mountains. He did so as the commissioned expedition artist for William Drummond Stewart (1795-1871), a Scottish nobleman and veteran of a five-year hunting tour in America. Their destination would be the annual fur traders' rendezvous at Horse Creek, near the present-day border of Colorado and Wyoming." "Miller, Stewart, and the rest of their party departed from Independence, Missouri, in mid-May 1837. They arrived at the rendezvous two months later and, after a week among the trappers and traders, headed into the Wind River Mountains to the source of the Green River. There, they spent the waning summer hunting moose and elk before returning to St. Louis in early October. Miller executed some one hundred watercolor and pen-and-ink sketches during the expedition, and he later reworked them into finished watercolors and oils for a variety of patrons." "Over the past two decades, much valuable scholarship has emerged on how western American art has reflected American nationalist or expansionist ideologies. In Sentimental Journey: The Art of Alfred Jacob Miller, Lisa Strong takes a new approach, however, by examining how Miller tailored his western scenes to suit the specific needs and interests of local American audiences. She also crosses national boundaries to explore how Miller's paintings helped promote a vision of Scottish aristocratic identity."--Jacket+-+70565183351452ocn608687721book20100.79Miller, Alfred JacobAlfred Jacob Miller : romancing the West in the Bank of America collectionCatalogsExhibition catalogs+-+462608061594ocn041000994book19980.97Strong, Lisa MariaImages of Indian-White contact in the watercolors of Alfred Jacob Miller, 1873-60Art21ocn082757047book19981.00Strong, Lisa MariaImages of Indian-White contact in the watercolors of Alfred Jacob Miller, 1837-60Notebooks, sketchbooks, etc11ocn845278636book2008Strong, Lisa MariaSentimental journey : the art of Alfred Jacob Miller ; [to coincide with the Exhibition Sentimental Journey: The Art of Alfred Jacob Miller, Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, Texas Sptember 20, 2008-January 11, 2009 ; Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, Nebraska, February 7-May 10, 2009]Exhibition catalogs+-+7056518335+-+9618040006324+-+9618040006324Fri Mar 21 15:46:35 EDT 2014batch7185
