Milton Avery : the late paintings by Robert Carleton Hobbs ( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The painter Milton Avery is the among the most beloved of American artists. A cool modernist, he is known chiefly for his vividly colored landscapes and intimate scenes of family life. Long overshadowed by Abstract Expressionism, his art has recently begun to be reassessed and its place in the history of modernism restored." "Robert Hobbs explores the development of Avery's painting in this crucial phase and draws insightful connections between it and Wallace Stevens's innovative poetry, written during the same period. This comparison will intrigue devotees of American poetry and American art." "A 1958 essay on Avery by the renowned critic Clement Greenberg, reprinted here, places the artist in the vanguard of an art that unites abstraction and representation, American ingenuity and an international sensibility. Altogether, this book takes a many-faceted approach to the presentation of an exquisite group of artworks."--Jacket

"The British Museum possesses one of the world's foremost collections of Egyptian antiquities. Temples and Tombs provides readers with an invaluable opportunity to view renowned masterpieces and little-known treasures from the museum's collection. The eighty-five objects featured within these pages span a full range of pharaonic history - from shortly before the Third Dynasty, about 2686 B.C., to the Roman occupation of the fourth century A.D. - and cover each of the four periods into which ancient Egyptian history is divided: Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom, New Kingdom, and the Late Period." "Presented here are a wide variety of objects - sculpture, relief, papyri, ostraca, jewelry, cosmetic objects, and funerary items - in a variety of media, including stone, wood, terra, cotta, gold, glass, and papyrus, each categorized according to its use in ancient culture. From objects made for temples of the gods and funerary monuments, to the objects used daily by artists and nobles and ritual objects concerning death and the afterlife, the treasures collected here are a testament to the rich, vibrant, and captivating culture of the ancient Egyptians."--Book jacket

"Spanning the first century B.C. through the early fourth century A.D., the Louvre's world-class Roman art collection includes an enormous array of objects that reflect the rich history and culture of a magnificent civilization. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition organized by the American Federation of Arts and the Musee du Louvre, this book features an extraordinary selection of these works - from the most famous to some with new significance resulting from new information. Themes such as religion, urbanisim, war, imperial expansion, funerary practices, intellectual life, and family are vividly represented in mosaics, frescoes, bronze and terracotta statuettes, monumental sculptures, sarcophagi, reliefs, and glass and metal vessels." "Roman Art from the Louvre also documents the major restoration, process undertaken by the Louvre to revive the vibrancy of the works included in the exhibition. Through careful procedures of cleaning and repair, the reincarnation of the Louvre's collection transforms the contemporary view of early Roman public and private life, conveying a novel perspective and understanding of these ancient masterpieces."--BOOK JACKET
