Turner's papers : a study of the manufacture, selection and use of his drawing papers, 1787-1820 by Peter Bower( Book )

19 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... This study of the manufacture, selection and use of the papers that Turner worked on during the first half of his career is an introduction to the depths of that knowledge and experience. It charts the constantly developing relationship between his often very imaginative techniques and the grounds he worked on. It documents his complex responses to the rapid changes and increasing sophistication of the design and production of papers for artists. The focus in this ... are the years 1787-1820."--publisher
Sun, wind, and rain : the art of David Cox by David Cox( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The watercolor Sun, Wind, and Rain, painted in 1845, typifies the concerns with representing light and atmosphere and weather that lie at the heart of David Cox's landscape art. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1783, Cox was destined to become a major figure in the linked worlds of landscape painting and watercolor painting in the first half of the nineteenth century. No significant study of the artist has been undertaken in more than a century. This illustrated volume focuses attention on Cox, filling in the details of his biography and illuminating his contributions to British landscape painting." "Scott Wilcox investigates Cox's artistic identity and his legacy. Other essays address such topics as Birmingham's cultural milieu; myths about Cox's life; the papers he chose; his painting in oils; and the fakes, forgeries, and misattributions that have challenged attempts to identify his oeuvre with certainty."--Jacket

Peter DeWint, 1784-1849 : 'for the common observer of life and nature' by Peter DeWint( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing together up-to-date scholarship, Peter DeWint 1784-1849: 'For the common observer of life and nature' re-presents and re-evaluates the artist and his work, so offering a reassessment of his approach to painting and his contribution to British art history. This book seeks to locate DeWint within the changing attitudes and ideas in painting of the period and to highlight how key historical changes such as agrarian reform helped shape his career. It also reveals hitherto neglected facets of the painter's work including his interest in architectural subjects, his use of Creswick papers and his post-humous reputation. Featuring a full reprint of his wife's memoir, Peter DeWint 1784-1849: 'For the common observer of life and nature' will provide a major reappraisal of the artist's life and career."--Jacket

The intimate world of Josef Sudek by Josef Sudek( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Josef Sudek (1896-1976) was a Czech photographer, best known for his photographs of Prague. He was a bookbinder before turning to photography after losing his right arm in WWI. This book, published to accompany an exhibition, examines how Sudek's photographs reflect his relationship to the world around him, from intimate explorations of cherished objects and views through his window to his night walks through the streets of Prague and its periphery, as well as excursions into the surrounding countryside. With essays, reminiscences by two former assistants, and stunning illustrations, here is a compelling view of Sudek s photographs, and the art of his friends and fellow artists. Sudek's legacy includes some of the 20th century's most haunting images of nature, monuments, city streets, and objects all transformed by his sensitivity to the power of light to reveal and the power of darkness to render all impenetrable
