Most widely held works by Edward Saywell
Degas at Harvard by Marjorie B Cohn( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a catalog published in conjunction with a 2005 exhibition organized by the Harvard University Art Museums. Co-author Cohn offers a historical account of the unusually deep collection of Degas's works at the Fogg (it's one of the most important in the United States); and art historian Boggs writes of her experiences as a student (beginning in 1944) with Paul J. Sachs, Degas's champion at the Fogg and the man who inspired her own and many others' scholarship. The catalog contains 53 color and 41 b & w plates showcasing the museum's paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures
Christopher Wilmarth : drawing into sculpture by Edward Saywell( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christopher Wilmarth (1943-1987), an American artist best known for his expressive sculptures constructed from plate glass and steel, was also an innovative draftsman. This compelling book - the first to focus on Wilmarth's use of drawing throughout his career - offers fascinating insights into his artistic practice and personal vision." "Edward Saywell considers three aspects of Wilmarth's drawings: his student and early works; the remarkable crossover that he made between two- and three-dimensional works in a series of drawings constructed from etched glass and steel cables done in the early 1970s; and the independent drawings he made directly after or during the construction of his sculptures as a means to think through completed work and to look forward to new creative ideas. Saywell also draws on previously unstudied materials, such as sketchbooks, preparatory maquettes, and letters selected from the Christopher Wilmarth Archive recently presented to the Fogg Art Museum by Susan Wilmarth-Rabineau, in order to shed new light on Wilmarth's working process."--Jacket
Contemporary art by Boston Museum of Fine Arts( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary art is a vast and complex field representing artists, ideas and trends from every imaginable cultural and geographical background. This book introduces the art of our times by taking the reader through a tour of some 70 examples from the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Thematic chapters present artistic categories, concepts and propositions that offer a path toward understanding the different subjects, forms, styles, purposes and techniques of contemporary art. Some, such as portraiture, are long-standing notions in the history of art; others, such as site appropriation, raise provocative questions and may be less immediately obvious. But it is the works themselves--brilliantly conceived by some of the most creative minds of our times--that make the case for embracing contemporary art in all its diversity
