Monet and the Mediterranean by Joachim Pissarro( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First invited by Pierre-Auguste Renoir to the Italian Riviera in 1883, Monet over the next decades crafted several magnificent series of works, remarkably different from the paintings that had established his reputation in the North. Here, assembled for the first time in its entirety, is the audaciously colorful group of works that he executed on the Italian and French Rivieras in 1884 and 1888, and in Venice in 1908. Arresting in their stunning color, dazzling light effects, and the sheer beauty of the land and the sea they depict, these paintings address in a new language the artist's ability to stretch his own pictorial boundaries. Now available in paperback, this new look at Monet accompanied the highly successful exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum in 1997

Masters of color and light : Homer, Sargent, and the American watercolor movement by Linda S Ferber( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Less often displayed than oils because of their sensitivity to light, watercolors nevertheless have enjoyed a lively, complex history. Illuminating well-known works as well as many that have never before been reproduced, Masters of Color and Light showcases an array of paintings that range far beyond watercolor's early reputation as the "lighter and daintier" medium
Vital forms : American art and design in the atomic age, 1940-1960 by Brooke Kamin Rapaport( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the TWA Terminal to Cadillac tail fins to paintings by Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko, 1940 to 1960 was a groundbreaking period for the arts in America. World War II ushered in an era of unprecedented destruction and the frightening promise of atomic power, and artists and designers responded with creations that emphasized the human body and living forms - reconfiguring what was now imperiled." "This illustrated volume, published on the occasion of a major exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, presents the work of artists, architects, and designers alongside historical photographs and period advertisements. The essays in Vital Forms: American Art and Design in the Atomic Age, 1940-1960 examine fine art and commercial design of the 1940s and 1950s from an interdisciplinary perspective."--Jacket
Eastman Johnson : painting America by Teresa A Carbone( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Providing a comprehensive overview of Johnson's oeuvre within the context of his era, this volume will transform the study of the artist. The two curators and three other distinguished contributors reveal the true scope and diversity of Johnson's American subject matter, notably the thematic originality of his Civil War and Reconstruction imagery."--Jacket
Manufactured landscapes : the photographs of Edward Burtynsky by Lori Pauli( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past twenty-five years, the Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been an explorer of unfamiliar places where industrial activity has reshaped the surface of the land. His surveys of the man-made terrain of quarrying, mining, railcutting, recycling, oil refining, and shipbreaking remind us that these incursions into the earth arise out of perennial human needs and desires. Burtynsky's photographs may show us things that are disturbing, but they also have about them an unexpected beauty, subverting our usual notions of the sublime in nature and leading us to a new awareness of the landscape of our times." "Manufactured Landscapes, organized by the National Gallery of Canada, is the first major retrospective of Edward Burtynsky's work. This fully illustrated catalogue of the exhibition includes essays by Lori Pauli, Mark Haworth-Booth, and Kenneth Baker, and an interview with the artist by Michael Torosian."--Jacket

The last expression : art and Auschwitz( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The catalog includes reproductions of some 300 artworks; each tells a piece of an incredible history. Each remnant of these personal journeys and individual travails contributes to our understanding of the victims of the Holocaust, their experiences, the nature and function of the camps, the strategies of the perpetrators, as well as the will and need to create art."--Jacket
Royal Persian paintings : the Qajar epoch, 1785-1925 by Layla S Diba( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iranian art of the Qajar period (1779-1925) has long been neglected and is little understood. This beautifully illustrated book for the first time comprehensively examines the flowering of Persian painting and the visual arts of this period. It focuses on the growth of a remarkable tradition of life-size figural painting, virtually unseen in the Islamic world. Exquisite historic manuscripts, lacquer works, calligraphies and enamels further illuminate the subject. The Qajar Epoch carries essays by leading scholars exploring the historical and social context of the period. Detailed entries describing and interpreting a wide variety of painting and artifacts, many hitherto unseen masterpieces from museums such as the Hermitage and private collections are virtually all illustrated in color and accompanied by translations of inscriptions, technical appendices and extensive bibliographies. A unique reference work, The Qajar Epoch will appeal to both specialist of pre-modern Iran and all those interested in non-Western artistic and cultural traditions
