Monet and the Mediterranean by Joachim Pissarro ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 841 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
Eastman Johnson : painting America by Teresa A Carbone ( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 715 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."--BOOK JACKET
Manufactured landscapes : the photographs of Edward Burtynsky by Lori Pauli ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 623 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."--BOOK JACKET

The last expression : art and Auschwitz ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 428 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."--BOOK JACKET
Fred Tomaselli by Ian Berry ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Growing up in southern California near the desert, Fred Tomaselli was influenced by both the manufactured unreality of theme parks and the music and drug counter-cultures of Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. His distinctive melding of these influences forms an updated, personalized, folk-driven vision of the American West. Although his work is deeply personal, its celebration of psychedelic and alternative modes of experience raises provocative questions and possibilities for understanding our inner and outer lives." "The artist's most comprehensive survey to date, with over 280 color illustrations, this book surveys Tomaselli's career from early experiments with sculpture and installation to recent paintings and prints that combine abstraction and current events. Fred Tomaselli includes new essays by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson and Linda Norden, an excerpt from a work by David Shields, and an extensive interview with the artist by Ian Berry."--BOOK JACKET
Royal Persian paintings : the Qajar epoch, 1785-1925 by Layla S Diba ( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 284 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
