Symbolist art by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

62 editions published between 1972 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 1,740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the Symbolist heyday in Paris was short-lived, the movement had an influence on painting in both duration and geographical range. Important Symbolist painters were at work in places as remote from one another as Munch in Oslo, Klimt in Vienna, and the young Picasso in Barcelona. It is through Symbolism, too, that the relationship between the English painting of the later nineteenth century and what was taking place in Europe can be explained. Edward Lucie-Smith's important study throws light upon the origins of Modernism, and upon the development of painting and sculpture in the final years of the century

American realism by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

22 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lavishly illustrated book, surprisingly the first on the subject, explores the tremendous scope, richness, toughness, sensibility, and liveliness of the American realist tradition. Sixteen varied sections discuss and display the finest and most influential work of different groups, schools, and periodsbeginning before the Revolutionary War and including American Impressionism, the Ashcan School, Precisionism, American Scene painting, Urban Realism, Photorealism, and today's Postmodern Realism - and provide convincing proof that the American realist legacy occupies an unparalleled position in world art." "In this important critical synthesis, Edward Lucie-Smith discusses the work of the pioneering masters of American realism, such as Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, Charles Sheeler, Thomas Hart Benton, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Hopper, and Andrew Wyeth. He adds a major new dimension in his examination of the work of contemporary realist painters: those recently acknowledged as major figures, among them Isabel Bishop, Alice Neel, and Fairfield Porter, and those such as Wayne Thiebaud and Leon Golub, whose reputations and contribution only currently are coming to full appreciation. He includes as well younger artists like Eric Fischl and Jeff Koons, who have achieved star status within this innovative tradition. The book thus carries the story of American realism right up to the present, showing how it continues to flourish today as strongly as it has in the past. A magnificent volume, with more than one hundred color plates, American Realism both celebrates and reveals the power of a great American legacy."--Jacket

19 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and Danish and held by 1,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward Lucie-Smith follows craft through three historical stages. Starting form the time when everything was made by hand, he proceeds to a second period, from the Renaissance onward, when there emerged an intellectual distinction between the idea of craft and that of fine art, which eventually came to be regarded as superior. The third period occurred during the Industrial Revolution, which introduced a separation between the craft object and the product made my machine. Continuing his account chronologically, Lucie-Smith treats the Arts and Crafts movements in Great Britain and America, as well as Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, Art Deco, the Bauhaus, and craft today. His absorbing narrative is enlivened by a stunning collection of more than 300 photographs (42 in color) of a wide vareity of objects -- the finest examples of craft work from all over the world. -- Form publisher's description

Women and art : contested territory by Judy Chicago( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and German and held by 1,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the centuries, male artists and critics have laid claim to a gender monopoly on artistic 'greatness'. Yet, throughout history, many female artists have produced art of great power and accomplishment despite widespread hostility and practical obstacles. Some of these artists have received critical recognition, many more have been consigned to obscurity. One far-reaching consequence of this has been that some of the most famous images of women have been produced by male artists with no direct knowledge of the female experience. Wave upon wave of art has depicted women as sexually precocious children, idealized icons of beauty, dewy-eyed pillars of domesticity or fearful hags; only rarely have audiences been offered a female artist's perspective on women's lives."--Jacket
Joan of Arc by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

22 editions published between 1976 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joan of Arc (French: Jeanne d'Arc, ca. 1412[4]? 30 May 1431), nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans" (French: La Pucelle d'Orléans), is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. She was born a peasant girl in what is now eastern France. Claiming divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France. She was captured by the Burgundians, transferred to the English in exchange for money, put on trial by the pro-English Bishop of Beauvais Pierre Cauchon for charges of "insubordination and heterodoxy", and was burned at the stake for heresy when she was 19 years old. Twenty-five years after her execution, an inquisitorial court authorized by Pope Callixtus III examined the trial, pronounced her innocent, and declared her a martyr.[6] Joan of Arc was beatified in 1909 and canonized in 1920"--Wikipedia
Race, sex, and gender : in contemporary art by Edward Lucie-Smith( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most significant developments in the art world of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s has been the rise to prominence of art made by minority cultures. Race, Sex, and Gender examines the controversial challenges these groups present to today's artists and critics. Works by African-Americans, feminists, homosexuals, and Latino-Hispanics - once considered marginal - have come to transform contemporary art. As this so-called minority art has moved into a more dominant position, museums - once official symbols of culture - have formed a more secure alliance with the avant-garde. The result is that "minority" art has become, in effect, our most major concern. In this provocative volume, art historian Edward Lucie-Smith seeks to determine how these different groups came to acclaim, and how they have revolutionized the kind of art shown in museums and galleries. Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Nancy Spero, Hannah Wilke, Larry Fuente, Cheri Samba, and Martin Puryear are among those artists whose work is pictured and discussed as Lucie-Smith probes issues of racial identity, sexual orientation, and gender politics. Statements from the artists as well as from theoreticians and critics are given, offering additional commentaries on these crucial new topics. Organized by profusely illustrated chapters devoted to specific minority groups, Race, Sex, and Gender is a timely introduction to the issues that are shaping contemporary art
