A studio of her own : women artists in Boston, 1870-1940 by Erica E Hirshler ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Studio of Her Own tells the interwoven stories of some forty women artists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, exploring, in the author's words, "both the individual lives and talents of Boston women artists and the integrated relationships that enabled many of them to excel."" "No one category or medium can encompass these careers, which range from the paintings of Ellen Day Hale and the sculptures of Katharine Lane Weems to the photographs of Sarah Sears and the innovative book designs of Sarah Wyman Whitman. Included as well are lengthy discussions of the importance of the Arts and Crafts movement; the conflicts presented by concerns of marriage and family (as well as the relative freedom offered by the "Boston marriage" between two women); the role of the MFA School and of such key instructors as Frank W. Benson, William Rimmer, and Edmund Tarbell; and the ways in which societal changes have influenced the art itself. Perhaps more than anything, this is a story of community and resourcefulness, in which some artists adopted "suitable" media and subject matter - still lifes, arts and crafts - and made them their own, while others campaigned for the right to work in such traditionally "male" domains as monumental sculpture, and still others braved the scandal of painting from live nude models, traveling abroad to study their art, or showing their work on a national scale." "Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, A Studio of Her Own is the definitive work on an important but little-known moment in America's cultural history"--BOOK JACKET

Dennis Miller Bunker : American impressionist by Erica E Hirshler ( Book )
3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dennis Miller Bunker (1861-1890) was one of the most talented painters of late nineteenth-century America. He was among the first Americans to use the bright colors and broken brushstrokes of the new Impressionist style; his beautiful landscapes and portraits are sought after by the most distinguished collectors of American art. Dennis Miller Bunker: American Impressionist is the first comprehensive study of this important American artist. Trained in the academies of his native New York, Bunker continued his education in Paris, where he flourished in the sophisticated atmosphere of the world's art capital. In 1885, he accepted a teaching position in Boston. He joined the city's vibrant artistic community and developed close friendships with the writer William Dean Howells, the composer Charles Martin Loeffler, and the legendary collector Isabella Stewart Gardner, who became his champion. In Boston, Bunker also met John Singer Sargent, America's most renowned painter. The summer they spent working together in England proved to be a turning point in Bunker's career. Bunker moved to New York in 1889. His heart remained in Boston, however, for he had fallen in love with Eleanor Hardy, the daughter of a prominent businessman. The couple married in October 1890. Barely three months later, Bunker died at age twenty-nine of a sudden illness. His beautifully crafted paintings were his only legacy

John Singer Sargent's approach to watercolor was unconventional. Disregarding contemporary aesthetic standards that called for carefully delineated and composed landscapes filled with transparent washes, his confidently bold, dense strokes, loosely defined forms, and unexpected vantage points startled critics and fellow practitioners alike. One reviewer of an exhibition in London proclaimed him "an eagle in a dove-cote"; another called his work "swagger" watercolors. For Sargent, watercolors were not so much about swagger as about a renewed and liberated approach to painting. His vision became more personal and his works began to interconnect as he considered the way one image--often of friends or favorite places--enhanced another. - Sargent chose to participate in only two major watercolor exhibitions in the United States during his lifetime, both at the urging of his friend and co-exhibitor Edward Darley Boit. The first, held in New York and Boston in 1909, was a sensation, and its entire contents was purchased by the Brooklyn Museum. The paintings exhibited in the equally acclaimed second show, in 1912, were scooped up by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. John Singer Sargent Watercolors reunites nearly one hundred works from these two collections for the first time. Together they trace Sargent's path across Europe and the Middle East as he explored the subjects and themes that habitually attracted his attention: sunlight on stone, reclining figures, patterns of light and shadow. Lavishly illustrated and enhanced by biographical and technical essays, this publication introduces readers to the full sweep of Sargent's accomplishments in this medium, in works that delight the eye as well as challenge our understanding of this prodigiously gifted artist

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston possesses one of the world's finest collections of nineteenth-century French and American art. This colourful book illustrates many of its highlights." "As she outlines the history of the collection, Erica Hirshler considers the taste in Boston for atmospheric landscapes which, by the late 1880s, had led young Boston painters to Monet's door. Their willingness to embrace Impressionism helped to popularise this style of painting throughout the United States." "All the high points of Boston's nineteenth-century collections are revealed here, with works by the leading French Impressionist painters and their American counterparts, such as Childe Hassam and Philip Hale."--BOOK JACKET
