Exposed : the Victorian nude ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 663 libraries worldwide
"The exposure of the body through representations of the nude was one of the most controversial issues in Victorian art. In an era that witnessed a broader audience for art and the development of new reproductive technologies, the nude was implicated in a variety of debates concerning public health and morals, which meant it could not be comfortably contained within the confines of high culture." "This illustrated publication surveys the full range of Victorian representations of female and male figures. While concentrating on painting, sculpture and drawing, it also explores the depiction of the body in other media, including photography, popular illustration and film, exposing issues of morality, sexuality and desire that remain relevant today."--BOOK JACKET.
Thomas Gainsborough : 1727-1788 by Thomas Gainsborough ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 514 libraries worldwide
Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) was one of the masters of 18th-century art. This stunning book, published to accompany a major international exhibition covering the artist's entire career, reveals the sheer range, quality, and originality of Gainsborough's work, from his engagingly naturalistic landscapes and touching images of children to his sophisticated and glamorous society portraits. In their revealing essay, Michael Rosenthal and Martin Myrone explore Gainsborough's dynamic involvement with the social world of his day, while other essays explore his subtle approach to the lucrative world of fashionable portraiture and the often pointed social commentary behind his seductive landscapes. This volume provides new and refreshing insights into Gainsborough as an artist who succeeded in creating an experimental and modern art for his own time, and whose works remain vital and rewarding today.

William Blake by Robin Hamlyn ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 406 libraries worldwide
"William Blake is one of the most influential, but also one of the most perplexing, of all British artists. Probably best known for his verses of the hymn "Jerusalem" and his poem "The Tyger," he produced an enormously varied range of visual work - including prints, illuminated books, drawings, and paintings - appealing to a more diverse audience than perhaps any other artist." "This illustrated volume, published to accompany the largest Blake exhibition ever mounted, closely examines Blake's vision, personal mythology, political views, and highly idiosyncratic painting techniques. An analysis of Blake's life-long interest in the Gothic, both as a source of his own distinctive style and as an ideal of spiritual and artistic integrity, leads into a study of his life during the 1790s, when his radical political interests and innovative printmaking techniques came together to form a totally new visionary art. This is followed by an investigation into the sources from which he developed his ideas, language, and images - including an explanation of the key characters that populated his imaginative universe. Finally, the culmination of Blake's highly original vision, his major illuminated books, including Songs of Innocence, Songs of Experience, Europe, and Jerusalem, are unveiled. Throughout, a wealth of reproductions bring Blake's vision to life." "In two opening essays, Peter Ackroyd, author of the definitive biography of the artist, introduces Blake the man, exploring the apparent contradictions of his complex personality, and Marilyn Butler, an expert on the poetry of the era, casts new light on Blake in the context of the social, cultural, and literary environment of his time."--BOOK JACKET.

"Illustrated throughout and featuring contributions by leading writers on the period, Art and the 60s is both a history of the art of a generation and the portrait of an era."--BOOK JACKET.
Turner and the masters ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 374 libraries worldwide
"J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is widely regarded as the greatest painter Britain has ever produced. Despite the many books and exhibitions that have been devoted to him, there is one aspect of his extraordinary oeuvre that has never been thoroughly examined. Uniquely in the history of European art, he took on all comers, past and present, that he considered worthy of a challenge, creating his own images in their styles. These works were both acts of homage and a sophisticated form of art criticism, demonstrating his understanding of great art and his ability to equal or better the most celebrated exponents of the landscape tradition. No artist, however revered, was considered beyond challenge. This unique habit is clearly a key to understanding Turner's art, yet the issue is one that has so far never been thoroughly addressed on Turner and on British art of the 18th and 19th centuries. In "Turner and the Masters" leading authorities explore this fascinating aspect of his career, revealing new detail on the debts and rivalries that shaped his work in often unexpected ways. Accompanying a major touring exhibition that brings together works by Turner with masterpieces by Claude, Canaletto, Ruisdael, Van de Velde, Poussin, Rubens and Rembrandt, as well as by Turner's contemporaries including Constable and Bonnington, this book firmly positions Turner in the company of the greatest painters of all time. The contributors include Guillaume Faroult, Sarah Monks, Martin Myrone, Kathleen Nicholson, Philippa Simpson and Ian Warrell."--BOOK JACKET.

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
Peter Doig by Peter Doig ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 343 libraries worldwide
"Peter Doig's highly distinctive paintings have been exhibited in major museums and galleries worldwide to international acclaim. In each work, Doig seeks to create an atmosphere that will draw the viewer into an intense and beguiling perceptual experience. Derived from photographic sources or quasi-memories, to form grand and magical tableaux, his pictorial world has also been shaped by the different places he has lived in. Born in Scotland, he was raised in Canada and spent two decades in London, before moving to Trinidad, where he now lives and works." "Accompanying a major retrospective exhibition, this lavishly illustrated book provides a comprehensive account of Doig's practice over two decades of extraordinary achievement. With an essay by Richard Shiff, an introduction by Tate curator Judith Nesbitt and an illuminating conversation between Doig and his friend, the artist Chris Ofili, this is a thorough and up-to-date survey of one of the most influential painters at work today."--BOOK JACKET.
