Van Gogh's van Goghs : masterpieces from the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam by Richard Kendall( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Van Gogh's Van Goghs presents seventy paintings from the extraordinary collection of the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, home to the single greatest assemblage of the artist's paintings, drawings, and letters. The collection is based on works acquired directly from the artist by his brother Theo, an art dealer and the source of Vincent's financial and emotional support. All periods of Vincent van Gogh's brief but intensely productive career are represented: his earliest paintings in The Netherlands; his responses to French Impressionism in 1886; the images he painted while in hospitals in Arles and Saint-Remy in southern France; and his last, feverishly creative works in Auvers-sur-Oise. Van Gogh's Van Goghs represents a unique opportunity to sample the largest and most varied Van Gogh collection in the world. It accompanies a major exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art."--Jacket

Van Gogh and Gauguin : the studio of the south by Douglas W Druick( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The friendship of Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin - including an intense, two-month collaboration in Aries, in the south of France - is one of the most revealing and dynamic relationships in the history of modern art. When they first met in Paris in late 1887, they were two of a number of artists seeking a way to move beyond impressionism. They found common ground in the belief that progressive art should be created at a distance from urban decadence, a conviction that led Gauguin to Brittany and van Gogh to Aries in the early months of 1888." "Published on the occasion of a landmark exhibition organized by The Art Institute of Chicago and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, the book is a provocative study of influence and innovation. With a wealth of illustrations, it offers a new perspective on some of the best-known masterpieces of modern art, as well as fresh insight into two of its central personalities."--Jacket
Signac, 1863-1935 by Paul Signac( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and French and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, the catalogue of the first retrospective of the work of the French Neoimpressionist artist Paul Signac to be held in nearly forty years, accompanies the 2001 exhibition organised by the Reunion des Musees Nationaux/Musee d'Orsay, Paris, the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. This long overdue tribute to Signac's power of expression and artistic influence features some two hundred paintings, drawings, watercolours, and prints from public and private collections worldwide. Fully illustrated in colour and discussed in individual entries, these works offer an unprecedented overview of Signac's fifty-year career. Signac's artistic development began with the luminous plein air paintings he made in the early 1880s which reveal the lessons he absorbed from Monet, Guillaumin, and other leading Impressionists. From 1884 until 1891 Signac's close association with Georges Seurat encouraged his explorations of colour harmony, contrasts, and Neoimpressionist technique. In the scintillating works of his maturity the rigours of Pointillism gave way to richly patterned, decorative colour surfaces. In a series of essays the exhibition's curators disc
Dante Gabriel Rossetti by Dante Gabriel Rossetti( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dante Gabriel Rossetti was the central figure of the Pre-Raphaelites. Together with Hunt and Millais, he started the original Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and was the 'poetic inspiration' of the movement. His turbulent and romantic imagery has always beguiled and intrigued art-lovers." "This beautifully illustrated book, published to accompany the landmark Rossetti exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Walker in Liverpool, is the most thorough and up-to-date analysis of the life and career of this pivotal nineteenth-century English painter available today." "It reproduces all of his most famous works in glorious colour, and major sections are also devoted to Rossetti's subjects from Dante; his representations of artists and their models; his drawings of Elizabeth Siddal; the medievalizing watercolours of the late 1850s; his monumental decorative projects at Llandaff Cathedral and at the Oxford Union; and his contributions to the decorative arts in the form of book bindings and illustrations, stained glass, furniture and picture frames."--Jacket

Van Gogh and the colors of the night by Vincent van Gogh( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Light! : the industrial age 1750-1900 : art & science, technology & society by Andreas Blühm( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the revolutionary changes brought about by the Industrial Age perhaps the most extraordinary and far-reaching was the transformation of light. Scientists described its hidden laws to the general public for the first time. Artists found radical ways of depicting it. Inventors found new ways of making it. The lives of ordinary people changed forever as streets, shops, theatres, even their own homes were brilliantly illuminated, first by gas, and then, even more dazzlingly, by electricity." "The story is told here for the first time in its entirety. The book describes the inventions still with us, such as electric light, the microscope and photography, as well as arcane reminders of a vanished world, such as the heliostat, the lithophane and the magic lantern. It portrays a revolution in the arts: the impressionists conjuring up sunlight, Constable redefining daylight, Caspar David Friedrich discovering twilight. And it debates the changing symbolism of light: the meaning of the Enlightenment, the light of God's truth, the nightmarish light of factory furnaces by night."--Jacket
Van Gogh to Kandinsky : symbolist landscape in Europe 1880-1910 by Rodolphe Rapetti( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A groundbreaking collaboration between the National Galleries of Scotland, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Finnish National Gallery, this catalogue accompanies the first exhibition dedicated to landscapes by the Symbolists, the innovative movement whose artists took a more imaginative and emotional approach to painting and embraced themes such as music, nationalism, science and modernity. It covers a wide range of artists, from forerunners of symbolism, like Bocklin and Whistler, to Mondrian and Kandinsky, who provided the impulse for major 20th-century movements, such as surrealism and abstraction. Exhibition: Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (24.2.-17.6.2012); The National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh (14.7.-14.10.2012); Ateneum Art Museum, Finnish National Gallery, Helsinki, Finland (16.11.2012-17.2.2013)

Van Gogh at work by Marije Vellekoop( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is often considered to be a genius in a class of his own, an exceptional self-taught artist who paid little attention to the art world around him. In reality, Van Gogh learned extensively from others, exchanged ideas with his contemporaries, and often made use of prevailing methods and techniques to hone his skills. This book explores the workmanship behind his artistry. The reader follows Van Gogh's quest to perfect his skills and the way he adopted various drawing and painting techniques; acquired information about materials; learned about the physical characteristics of canvasses, paint, paper, chalk, and other materials; how he approached working on paper and canvas and which factors influenced his working practice. Showing his work alongside that of other artists demonstrates the degree to which he followed examples set by his contemporaries. Van Gogh's working methods are explored along with his most famous works, addressing topics as the use of a perspective frame, color theory, the influence of contemporaries and the famous repetitions of a theme as in the Sunflowers and the Bedroom series
Barcelona 1900 by Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The character of modern Barcelona has its origins in the artistic ferment that took place at the turn of the twentieth century, when music, architecture, painting, sculpture, and literature flourished as never before. This book recreates this momentous period in the city's artistic, social, and political history, offering a variety of perspectives on the modern foundations of one of the world's great cultural capitals."--BOOK JACKET
Fierce friends : artists and animals, 1750-1900 by Louise Lippincott( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fierce Friends: Artists and Animals, 1750-1900 examines a critical period in our evolving relationship with animals. Between the mid-eighteenth and the early twentieth centuries, the philosophical legacy of the Enlightenment, the mechanical inventions of the Industrial Revolution, and the intellectual transformation sparked by Charles Darwin undermined many of the traditional roles assigned to animals, and overturned our view of them as physically, mentally - and divinely - separated from humans. This book interweaves the history of science and of art in an account of how humans came to understand and appreciate their shared biological ancestry." "Fierce Friends explores how painters, sculptors, illustrators, and ceramists reflected contemporary changes in the perception of animals, incorporating in their work the latest developments in geographical exploration and comparative anatomy, advances in geology and the birth of paleotology, the enthusiasm of amateur naturalists, and the impact of evolution theory. It identifies the importance of illustrators such as Audubon, who were frequently at the forefront of natural history discoveries, and reveals the visionary artists who drew imaginatively on Darwin's theory of natural selection to create mythical beasts. Artists as diverse as Hogarth, Oudry, Gericault, Delacroix, and Van Gogh here demonstrate mankind's increasing awareness of animals as sentient creatures, infusing genres such as animalier painting and portraiture with new meaning and emotional power."--Jacket

The colour of sculpture, 1840-1910 by Andreas Blühm( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sculpture is commonly associated with the three dimensions of volume, while color is claimed as the exclusive means of expression for painters. However, polychromy was widely used in sculpture from the Middle Ages to the Baroque and beginning in 1814, there was a renewed interest in antique polychromy. Its effect in sculpture became visible several decades later. This book sheds light on this neglected aspect and leads to a better understanding of the art of the period in general. The volume includes works by Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Jean-Leon Gerome, Auguste Rodin and many others
