Pre-Raphaelites : Victorian art and design by T. J Barringer( Book )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 822 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

The Pre-Raphaelite lens : British photography and painting, 1848-1875 by Diane Waggoner( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As photography steadily gained a foothold in the 1840s, a group of British painters calling themselves the Pre-Raphaelites came of age. Answering John Ruskin's call to study nature, 'rejecting nothing, selecting nothing, and scorning nothing, ' these young painters were also spurred on by the possibilities of the new medium (introduced in 1839), particularly its ability to capture every nuance, every detail ... This volume explores the rich dialogue between photography and painting through the themes of landscape, portraiture, literary and historical narratives and modern-life subjects. These artists - from photographers Lewis Carroll, Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, Henry Peach Robinson and Oscar Gustave Rejlander, to such painters as John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John William Inchbold - not only had much in common, but also upended traditional approaches to making pictures."--Publisher's description
The American Pre-Raphaelites : radical realists by Linda S Ferber( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together insights from a distinguished group of scholars, The American Pre-Raphaelites: Radical Realists examines the history and legacy of this often-overlooked group of American artists who were profoundly influenced by John Ruskin (1819-1900), the most influential art critic of the Victorian era, and his call for a revolutionary change in the practice of art--to leave tradition behind, exit the studio, work outdoors, and reproduce nature's "truth" with exacting detail. Published in celebration of Ruskin's two-hundredth birthday, The American Pre-Raphaelites includes some eighty works by Thomas Charles Farrer, Fidelia Bridges, Charles Herbert Moore, Henry Roderick Newman, and William Trost Richards, among others. New research reveals that many of these artists sought reform not only in the practice of art, but also in the broader political arena--many were abolitionists, and Farrer himself had served in the Union army. They followed Ruskin's dictum to record the natural world with strict fidelity, but they also created works of stunning beauty that often include a rich political subtext.--Provided by publisher

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photography Reinvented" brings together thirty-five works by eighteen critically acclaimed artists who, through innovative experimentation and visionary conceptual scope, have changed the course of contemporary photography.

Lewis Carroll's photography and modern childhood by Diane Waggoner( Book )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1856, when Charles Lutwidge Dodgson adopted the pen name Lewis Carroll, photography was still a young medium, and presented uncharted possibilities for representation. Carroll soon found his forte in photographing children, and his photograph Alice Liddell as a Beggar Child (1858) is now one of the most famous Victorian depictions of a child. Carroll's engagement with childhood occurred at a critical juncture, when the idea of "childhood" was just beginning to attain status as a life stage with characteristics distinct from adulthood. In this sense, Carroll's photographs are especially rich, incisive, and complex: they embody conflicting definitions of childhood intertwined with constructions of gender, class, bodies, age, sexuality, and whiteness; behavioural norms and propriety; innocence and experience; fantasy, play, and imagination; and aesthetic standards and contexts of viewing. Author Diane Waggoner shows that Carroll's photographs of children were as important to him as his literature in modelling the concept and appeal of Victorian childhood. Based on over twenty years of scholarship and archival research, the manuscript places Carroll's images within broader Victorian visual and social culture. Waggoner shows how these contexts shaped Carroll's pursuit of a distinctive photographic vocabulary for childhood, and explores how Carroll established new aesthetic norms for images of girls; engaged with evolving definitions of masculinity, education, and boyhood; and pushed the definition of childhood to its outer limits with his use of fancy dress and nude images. Meditating upon Carroll's handling of childhood, time, and loss in both word and photograph, she argues that Carroll's photographs should be understood as powerful contributions to the nineteenth century's visual representation of the emergent definition of childhood"--
East of the Mississippi : nineteenth-century American landscape photography by Diane Waggoner( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important reconsideration of landscape photography in nineteenth-century America explores crucial but neglected geographies, practitioners, and themes. Although pictures of the West have dominated our perception of nineteenth-century American landscape photography, many photographers were working in the eastern half of the United States during that period. Their pictures, with the exception of Civil War images, have received relatively scant attention. Redressing this imbalance is East of the Mississippi, the first book to focus exclusively on the arresting eastern photographs that helped shape America's national identity. Celebrating natural wonders such as Niagara Falls and the White Mountains as well as capturing a cultural landscape fundamentally altered by industrialization, these works also documented the impact of war, promoted tourism, and played a role in an emerging environmentalism. Showcasing some 180 photographs from 1839 to 1900 in a rich variety of media and formats--from daguerreotypes, salted paper prints, tintypes, cyanotypes, and albumen prints to stereo cards and photograph albums--this volume traces the evolution of eastern landscape photography and introduces the artists who explored this subject. Also considered are the dynamic ties with other media--for instance, between painters and photographers such as the Bierstadt and Moran brothers--and the distinctive development of landscape photography in America.--Provided by publisher

Picturing children : constructions of childhood between Rousseau and Freud by Linda A Pollock( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book charts the development of the Romantic ideal of childhood, starting with Rousseau's Emile, and attends to its visual, social and psychological transformations during the historical period from which Freud's psychoanalytic theories eventually emerged. Foremost scholars such as Anne Higonnet, Carol Mavor, Susan Casteras and Linda Pollock uncover the means by which children became an important conduit for prevailing social anxieties and demonstrate that the apparently 'timeless' images of them that proliferated at the time should be understood as complex cultural documents."--Jacket

The memory of time : contemporary photographs from the National Gallery of Art by National Gallery of Art (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Memory of Time presents work by contemporary artists who investigate the richness and complexity of photography's relationship to time, memory, and history. In the last two decades, as the world has undergone an unprecedented technological revolution, photography itself has changed profoundly. With the advent of the digital age, people around the world are recording every aspect of their lives through photography, sharing their pictures with friends and strangers online and through the burgeoning social media. Yet digital photography has not only changed the way people make and circulate photographs, it has also shattered enduring notions of the medium as a faithful witness and recorder of unbiased truths, for now everything in a photograph can be fabricated; nothing need be real. Photography -- once understood as verifying specific facts, capturing singular moments of time, and preserving explicit memories -- is now recognized to have a multifaceted and slippery relationship to the truth and to the past. By embracing this complexity, contemporary artists have placed photography at the center of a renewed discussion around the construction of history and memory and the perception of time
