Edward W. Redfield : just values and fine seeing by Constance Kimmerle( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia and arguably the stylistic leader of the Pennsylvania impressionist school of painting, Edward W. Redfield (1869-1965) was fascinated by the forces that color an individual's reaction to nature. His paintings reflect an engagement with the American experience in an unsentimental impressionist style. Redfield understood that art is an expressive activity rooted in sensibility and feeling." "During the first decade of the twentieth century, Redfield was one of the most popular and widely exhibited painters in America. His paintings captured the rawness and energy of America during a period of transformation from a predominantly agrarian society to an industrialized, capitalist nation." "With access to the Redfield family archives, Constance Kimmerle is able to broaden the understanding of the artist and his work. Using primary sources, including Redfield's personal letters and his journals, Kimmerle creates an intimate portrait of one of America's greatest impressionist painters."--Jacket
Form radiating life : the paintings of Charles Rosen by Brian H Peterson( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Rosen (1878-1950) began his career as a photographer in western Pennsylvania but fell in love with painting while still a teenager. This interest led him to enroll at the National Academy of Design in New York, as well as the New York School of Art, where he studied under William Merritt Chase and Frank Vincent DuMond. Rosen began to develop an interest in landscape painting, and in 1903 he and his wife moved to New Hope, Pennsylvania, where he quickly became an important member of the Pennsylvania Impressionist school, producing large snowscapes and spring scenes. His New Hope canvases utilize a simple but elegant compositional style sometimes reminiscent of Japanese prints, and his mature landscape work demonstrates an interest in the decorative patterning of nature. Rosen eventually became dissatisfied with the landscape style, and under the influence of Modernist ideas his work changed radically. In 1920, he moved to Woodstock, New York, to teach at and later direct the Art Students League summer school. In Woodstock he developed close friendships with painters George Bellows and Eugene Speicher, and began to work in a semiabstract, formalist style using buildings and other man-made structures as subject matter. This style would characterize his work from that time forward. Form Radiating Life is an examination of the life and work of Charles Rosen, studying both phases of his career and featuring paintings that demonstrate this unusual range of styles. Lavishly illustrated, it represents the oeuvre of an artist of prodigious talent and vision but also tremendous sensitivity
Charles Sheeler : fashion, photography, and sculptural form by Charles Sheeler( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philadelphia native Charles Sheeler (1883-1965) is recognized as one of the founding figures of American modernism. Initially trained in impressionist landscape painting, he experimented early in his career with compositions inspired by European modernism before developing a linear, hard-edge style now known as Precisionism. Sheeler is best known for his powerful and compelling images of the Machine Age-stark paintings and photographs of skyscrapers, factories, and power plants-that he created while working in the 1920s and 1930s. Less known, and even lesser studied, is that he worked from 1926 to 1931 as a fashion and portrait photographer for Conde Nast. The body of work he produced during this time, mainly for Vanity Fair and Vogue, has been almost universally dismissed by scholars of American modernism as purely commercial, the results of a painter's "day job," and nothing more. Jensen contends that Sheeler's fashion and portrait photography was instrumental to the artist's developing modernist aesthetic.Over the course of his time at Conde Nast, Sheeler's fashion photography increasingly incorporated the structural design of abstraction: rhythmic patterning, dramatic contrast, and abstract compositions. The subjects of Sheeler's fashion and portrait photography appear pared down to their barest essentials, as sculptural objects composed of line, form, and light. The objective, distant, and rigorously formal style that Sheeler developed at Conde Nast would eventually be applied to all of his artistic forays: architectural, industrial, and vernacular

Taking liberties by David Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of America’s most important contemporary photographers shares his latest installment of documents in Taking Liberties, a collection of 65 beautifully produced full-color photographs with an introduction by the prominent American architect Robert Venturi. Graham’s myriad subjects include 3,000 miles of full-color roadside attractions, and a world of general oddities. Taking his inspiration from the United States Constitution, David Graham has tirelessly traveled the entire continental United States seeking out those Americans who are serious about their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—from the California dentist who sculpts mammoth Amazon warriors to the Dallas hamburger stand that features a life size statue of Lenin. The book is a jubilant and highly amusing celebration of the freedom of expression that is truly American, and it will appeal to photography and architecture lovers as well as fans of American culture
