17 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founded in 1811, Dulwich Picture Gallery was England's first public museum. The gallery is home to one of the most important collections of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century art in the world, including works by Rembrandt, Rubens, and Van Dyck; Poussin and Watteau; Tiepolo and Canaletto; Murillo and Velazquez; and Hogarth and Gainsborough, among many others. Ninety masterpieces of the Baroque and Rococo periods are illustrated and discussed in this publication, which features some of the finest of the gallery's holdings."--Jacket
Vanessa Bell by Vanessa Bell( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This accompanying publication showcases the oil paintings, photographs, ceramics, fabrics, decorative screens and works on paper of Vanessa Bell in a stunning display of her vibrant and wide-ranging talent. Long overshadowed by the complexity of her family life and romantic entanglements, the editors assess Bell in the context of her relationship with sister, Virginia Woolf, and as muse and confidant to Roger Fry and Duncan Grant, but ultimately present an intrepid artist deserving of fresh consideration
Painting Canada : Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven by Tom Thomson( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In early twentieth-century Toronto, Canada, the first stirrings of a new movement of painting were being felt. A group of artists started to engage with the awesome Canadian wilderness, a landscape previously considered too wild and untamed to inspire true art. Leading the way was Tom Thomson. In little more than three years of electrifying creativity before his premature death in 1917 he formulated an artistic language that captured the unique qualities of the Canadian landscape. Three years later his friends--Lawren Harris, J.E.H. MacDonald, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael and A.Y. Jackson--formed the Group of Seven. They built on Thomson's legacy to produce a landscape style that to this day influences the way Canadians visualise their country, and their paintings are national icons in Canada. This book tells of the Group's collective quest to depict Canada in paint. It recounts their beginnings, the challenges they faced and the remarkable and often extreme journeys they undertook in search of new subject matter. Essays explore the artists' relationship with the Arctic north, and analyse Thomson's art through the prism of the prevalent scientific theories of the day. A fresh, European perspective on these Canadians is offered in essays exploring their links with Scandinavian art and European expressionism. Beautifully illustrated with over 120 colour reproductions of their work, and maps indicating the geographical range covered by this selection of paintings, this book offers an insight into the history of this important--yet little-known in Europe--artistic movement."--Publisher's website

The Dutch Italianates : 17th-century masterpieces from Dulwich Picture Gallery, London by Ian A. C Dejardin( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the 17th century, a steady stream of Dutch painters made the arduous journey to Italy, the acknowledged 'home of art'. But they were more inspired by the country itself than its artistic tradition. In their paintings, they recorded the glittering distances of the Roman campagna, the ruins of earlier civilisations, and the colourful characters of the streets and countryside. Hugely popular in their own time, and influential throughout the 18th century, the 'Dutch Italianates' fell out of favour in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, for Noel Desenfans and Sir Francis Bourgeois, founders of Dulwich Picture Gallery, artists like Nicolaes Berchem, Karel Du Jardin, Philips Wouwermans, Aelbert Cuyp and Adam Pynacker were names to mention in the same breath as Rembrandt and Ruisdael. This book once again celebrates the beauty, virtuosity, observation and humour of the Dutch Italianate vision while also telling the fascinating story of Dulwich Picture Gallery itself."--Jacket
Twombly and Poussin : Arcadian painters by Nicholas Cullinan( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Painting Norway : Nikolai Astrup, 1880-1928 by Nikolai Astrup( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A showcase for the illustrations and prints of Nikolai Astrup, a well-loved Norwegian painter, uniquely placed to be able to capture the spirit of his home country. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, February-May 2016
David Milne : modern painting by David Milne( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive survey of the life and work of the Canadian artist David Milne (1882-1953) accompanies the first UK exhibition of Milne's work at Dulwich Picture Gallery and brings together one hundred and twenty of his most significant works in oil, watercolour and dry-point printmaking. Like the members of the Group of Seven, Milne primarily chose landscape as his subject matter. However, his true subject was the process of perception and representation, reducing his painting to its essentials and infusing it with his own distinctive modern sensibility. Through the use of photographs, archival material and Milne's own writings the book presents a moving account of one man's spiritual and emotional voyage into modernity - from his early life in small town Ontario, to the bustling sidewalks of New York, on to the war torn landscapes of northern France as an official war artist and back again to the woods, lakes and fields of upstate New York. Pivoting as it does on Milne's war art, which includes some of the most formally daring of his career, the publication will serve as a poignant locus of remembrance, underscoring the historic bond between Canada and Great Britain, and offering a unique perspective on history through the eyes of one of Canada's most sophisticated modern painters
Dulwich Picture Gallery, London by Ian A. C Dejardin( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Passion over reason : Tom Thomson & Joyce Wieland = La passion avant la raison : Tom Thomson et Joyce Wieland by Tom Thomson( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The catalogue, Passion Over Reason: Tom Thomson & Joyce Wieland, sits at the intersection of exhibition catalogue and bookwork, serving as a site for documentation and intervention. Independently published by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, with the assistance of Ontario150 Community Celebration Program, this limited edition stands as unique contribution to institutional art publications. Featuring reproductions of upwards of 130 original artworks and archival materials from the exhibition, it is a visual conversation between major works by Canada's own feminist art pioneer Joyce Wieland and masterworks by Canadian painting cult figure Tom Thomson. A third artist in focus for this publication is Zachari Logan (b. 1980), who adds yet another anachronistic comparison and point of influence into this unexpected mix. -McMichael Canadian Art Collection Website as viewed November 17, 2017
McMichael Canadian Art Collection by Ian A. C Dejardin( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection has a unique mandate to celebrate the art of Canada, which it does within a great building in beautiful grounds overlooking the Humber River Valley. Originally a home completed in 1954 for entrepreneur Robert McMichael and his wife Signe, the building became an unofficial gallery when they began allowing passers-by and school parties inside to view their art collection. In 1965 they took the visionary step of donating their home, collection and land to the Province of Ontario and in 1966 the McMichael officially opened to the public. The permanent collection now consists of over 6,400 artworks. The iconic Canadian landscape artist Tom Thomson (1877-1917) features prominently, as do his colleagues the Group of Seven and their contemporaries. Historic and contemporary Indigenous art accounts for over a third of the total collection and is celebrated in the Gallery's dynamic exhibition program. Here, Ian Dejardin's personal selection of highlights offers a revelatory opportunity to engage with the essence of Canada as portrayed in the luminous works of its artists
