Corcoran Gallery of Art : American paintings to 1945 by Sarah Cash ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America's first art museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art was founded in 1869 by the wealthy Washington, D.C. banker and philanthropist William Wilson Corcoran (1798--1888). The museum was established from the private collection. Corcoran began in about 1850, and since that time its American paintings collection has grown to more than five hundred works dating from 1718 to 1945. These holdings include a remarkable number of iconic works in all genres of American painting. This list includes Samuel F.B. Morse's The House of Representatives (1822); Rembrandt Peak's Washington before Yorktown (1824--25); Thomas Cole's The Departure and The Return (1837); Frederic Edwin Church's Niagara (1857); John Singer Sargent's En route pour la peche (1878); Thomas Eakins's Singing a Pathetic Song (1881); Albert Bierstadt's The Last of the Buffalo (1888); George Bellows's Forty-two Kids (1907); and Aaron Douglas's Into Bondage (1936). The collection also boasts outstanding breadth and depth in Hudson River School painting, nineteenth-century portraiture and genre painting, American Impressionism, and early twentieth-century realism
Sentimental journey : the art of Alfred Jacob Miller by Lisa Maria Strong ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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
