Samuel Palmer, 1805-1881 : vision and landscape by William Vaughan( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel Palmer (1805-81) is one of the most original and influential of British painters. A younger contemporary of Turner and Constable, he looked at nature as much with the inner as with the outer eye, producing vision-inspired landscapes of unprecedented boldness and great poetic richness that form a striking contrast to the dominating naturalism of the day." "Marking the bicentenary of Palmer's birth, this catalogue is published to accompany the largest retrospective exhibition of his work for nearly eighty years. Bringing together nearly all his greatest works from collections around the world, supplemented with essays by eight distinguished scholars, it celebrates the full range of the artist's achievement."--Jacket

Turner's Oxford by Colin Harrison( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his life, J.M.W. Turner was fascinated by Oxford, 'the English Athens'. Indeed, no other place in England so consistently engaged his attention over so long a period, from the beginning of his career until the late 1830s. This book brings together for the first time all his views of the city, and discusses the circumstances surrounding the genesis of these works. They range from watercolours done by the teenage artist while staying with relations at the nearby village of Sunningwell, in Berkshire; numerous drawings and watercolours of the 1790s made for collectors and for private pleasure and instruction; ten watercolours commissioned for the Oxford Almanack between 1799 and 1804; two oil paintings for the Oxford dealer, James Wyatt in 1809-12; and the preparatory works and finished watercolours for several projects in the 1820s and 1830s, when Turner was at the height of his powers."--Jacket

The Ashmolean Museum's collection of British drawings and watercolours is undoubtedly one of the richest in the world.

Degas to Picasso : creating modernism in France : works from the Ursula & R. Stanley Johnson Family Collection by Colin Harrison( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to coincide with the exhibition of the same name, this will explore the evolution of modernism in French art between c. 1800 and 1940. Although the traditional view of French art as a steady progression from the representational to the abstract, notably through the genre of landscape, has long been rejected, the meanings of modernism have never been examined in all their complexity. The exhibition will be selected from the private collection of Stanley and Ursula Johnson. Although the Johnson Family Collection is well known, only one substantial exhibition from the holdings has ever been shown: Cubism and La Section d'Or in 1991. This new exhibition is a rare opportunity to show a substantial selection from across the entire collection. Not only do these works speak for themselves, they will constitute an exhibition both enjoyable for the general public, and thought-provoking for the specialist
