Exposed : the Victorian nude ( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member 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
William Blake by Martin Butlin ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Published to accompany the largest Blake exhibition ever mounted, this book "closely examines Blake's vision, personal mythology, political views, and highly idiosyncratic painting techniques."--Jacket
J.M.W. Turner : a wonderful range of mind by John Gage ( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book reveals the extent to which Turner wanted his paintings to communicate intellectually as well as emotionally; and how intensely involved he was with the culture of his times, using landscape as a vehicle for the deepest ruminations on society, politics and the human condition." "Sam Smiles discusses and illustrates the whole range of Turner's work, tracking his career from the 1790s to the 1840s, exploring the themes that motivated him and explaining his importance for subsequent generations."--Jacket
Thomas Gainsborough : 1727-1788 by Thomas Gainsborough ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member 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

Ruskin, Turner, and the pre-Raphaelites by Robert Hewison ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pre-Raphaelites : Victorian art and design by T. J Barringer ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood shook the mid-19th-century art world. Effectively Britain's first modern art movement, the Brotherhood combined rebellion and revivalism, scientific precision, and imaginative grandeur. Today, the works of the Pre-Raphaelites are among the best known of all English paintings, and yet they have often been dismissed or misunderstood as Victoriana or escapism. This fascinating book convincingly corrects that view, examining works in a wide variety of media and demonstrating the broad scope of the movement's revolutionary ideas about art, design, and society. Led by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, and John Everett Millais, the Pre-Raphaelites' unflinchingly radical style, inspired by the purity of early Renaissance painting, defied convention, provoked critics, and entranced audiences. Many of their most famous paintings are featured, including Millais's Ophelia and Ford Madox Brown's The Last of England. This book also includes sculpture, photography, and the applied arts, the last of which shows the important role the Brotherhood played in the early development of the Arts and Crafts movement and the socialist ideas of the poet, designer, and theorist William Morris."--Publisher's website
Bridget Riley by Bridget Riley ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bridget Riley is one of Britain's most celebrated artists, and her career has been distinguished by a series of remarkable innovations. She first attracted critical attention with the dazzling black-and-white paintings she began to make in 1961. Her participation in the seminal exhibition The Responsive Eye at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1965 and her triumph at the Venice Biennale in 1968 - when she became the first living British painter to win the International Prize for painting - established her as an artist of the first rank." "Bridget Riley surveys the artist's entire career and includes key examples of all phases of her work. It offers the opportunity both to review many early, celebrated paintings and to see these afresh in the context of recent works in which light, colour, movement and space are drawn into fresh and unexpected relationships. Numerous preparatory working studies are reproduced to illuminate the artist's complex and fascinating working processes." "Essays from Paul Moorhouse, Richard Shiff and Robert Kudielka provide an overview of her art and career, along with new insights into the relation of Riley's work to theories of aesthetics and perception."--BOOK JACKET

Turner and the masters ( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member 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
Degas, Sickert and Toulouse-Lautrec : London and Paris, 1870-1910 by Anna Gruetzner Robins ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Between 1870 and 1910 the burgeoning populations and hectic speed of life in London and Paris fascinated artists on both sides of the English Channel. French artists such as Edgar Degas and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec pioneered new ways of representing city life, profoundly influencing many British artists." "This publication examines the exciting and controversial exchange of pictorial and aesthetic ideas that took place as British art adapted to modernity, and explores the rich interplay between the making, exhibiting and collecting of new figurative art. The pivotal figures in this cross-cultural dialogue are Degas, hailed in Britain as a genius; Sickert, whose Degas-inspired art explored the gritty, urban side of modern life; and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, whose largest one-man show was staged in Regent Street, London. Works by these and other key artists, including Vuillard, Bonnard, Tissot, Whistler, Steer and Rothenstein, involved society portraiture and posters, scenes of the street and public entertainment, creating evocative images of the decadence and spectacle of the fin-de-siecle metropolis"--Dust jacket
Peter Doig by Peter Doig ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 402 WorldCat member 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

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Art and the 60s presents a comprehensive cultural history of the period, exploring a wide range of visual media, including fine art, architecture and photography, examining works in the context of such phenomena as Americanisation, the breakdown of the divide between 'high' and 'low' culture, pop music, the sexual revolution and the growth of the counter-culture." "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
