Art Nouveau Bing : Paris style 1900 by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The literature on Art Nouveau is extensive but little mention has been made of the man who created the name, Siegfried Bing, a leading figure in fin de siecle decorative arts and a moving force in the style that swept through Western Europe and the United States. Weisberg, along with SITES, has produced a visually delightful, detailed tribute to this elusive but effective artist-entrepreneur. The catalog traces Bing's life, involvement in Japanese arts, the creation of the gallery "L'Art Nouveau" and the atelier that flourished under his supervision. It was a union of art and industry aimed at design reform with an international style and no distinction between major or minor, fine or applied arts. Useful for art libraries."--Metropolitan Museum Library staff
Made in U.S.A. : an Americanization in modern art, the '50s & '60s by Sidra Stich( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Made in U.S.A. takes a new look at American art of the 1950s and 1960s and shows us how American it was. This is a provocative study of those artists who appropriated everyday images form the world of mass media and suburban living and forced their viewers into a sometimes witty, sometimes bittersweet, confrontation with the realities of living in late twentieth-century America

Views from Jade Terrace : Chinese women artists, 1300-1912 by Marsha Smith Weidner( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Views from Jade Terrace: Chinese Women Artists 1300-1912' is the first exhibition ever devoted to the painting of Chinese women artists. In the past two decades the role of women in the arts in general has been extensively, if not yet exhaustively, surveyed in many books and articles and in a number of important exhibitions. 'Views from Jade Terrace,' then, can be seen as a continuation of this process and a first attempt to place into proper context the contributions of women to the history of Chinese painting." -- Foreword

Power : its myths and mores in American art, 1961-1991 by Holliday T Day( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exhibition catalog includes essays by Day's coauthors, who present varied points of view as to whether artists can effectively criticize the existing power structure in society today when they themselves participate as the avant-garde within the same system. The volume represents 28 artists, spanning the pop and minimalist movements to the controversial art of the 1980s. They approach issues of power in diverse ways--at times questioning specific materials or production methods, at other times the literal reference an image projects, and often they are engaged with ideas based on context. These three themes form the configuration of the exhibition, eliciting questions with regard to gender, race, and class attitudes implicit in the visual images. The social implications of the artwork within the show are assessed by either an anthropological approach or a Western art-historical perspective

16 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architecture in Virginia : an official guide to four centuries of building in the Old Dominion by William B O'Neal( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Virginia Museum has entered a new field of museum curatorship with this authoritative guide to Virginia's extraordinarily rich architectural heritage. With the aid and advice of some of America's most distinguished architectural historians, the Museum has conducted fresh research and secured new photographs of 223 buildings and sites in the Old Dominion, each chosen carefully for its architectural significance rather than mere historical association. William B. O'Neal's scholarly text, generously laced with quotations from primary sources, is a fascinating blend of anecdote, legend, lore and architectural criticism. Here are four centuries of building in the Old Dominion -- from Jamestown to Reston. -- From publisher's description
Sally Mann : the flesh and the spirit by John B Ravenal( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout her career, Sally Mann has fearlessly pushed her exploration of the human form, tackling often difficult subject matter and making unapologetically sensual images that are simultaneously bold and lyrical. This publication documents Mann's interest in the body as a principal subject
The Making of Virginia architecture by Charles E Brownell( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The long tradition of architecture in Virginia begins with the earliest structures at the Jamestown settlement in 1607, and continues today with some of the most advanced buildings yet completed anywhere. In its legendary landmarks -- Mount Vernon, Monticello, the Virginia Capitol building in Richmond, the James River plantation mansions, the Reynolds Metals headquarters building in Richmond, Washington National Airport, and Dulles International Airport -- as well as in homes, churches, stories, and office buildings across the state, Virginia's architecture is a mirror of the many expressions of America's built environments. This book invites the readers on a journey through the eye and mind of the architect, from the very drawings that give shape and form to the idea, through the tracks and traces found in long lost letters, office records, and other primary sources. You will never see the buildings around you, anywhere, in the same way again. -- From publisher's description

Martin Puryear by Margo A Crutchfield( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Monumental in scale and meticulously crafted by hand, the sculptures featured in this book exemplify the mystery and beauty of Martin Puryear's work. Created over a period of eleven years from 1989 to 2000, these sculptures include recently completed pieces from the artist's studio that have not been exhibited or published before. Each of these objects is portrayed in rich color, many with details and multiple views. An introductory essay and commentary on each object accompany this visual record of works by one of America's pre-eminent sculptors."--Jacket
Great British watercolors : from the Paul Mellon collection at the Yale Center for British Art by Matthew Hargraves( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a period of a little over fifteen years, beginning in the early 1960s, Paul Mellon (1907-1999) assembled one of the world's greatest collections of British drawings and watercolors. As part of his extensive collecting of British art, he purchased several distinguished private collections of British watercolors, enriching and expanding them with purchases reflecting his own taste." "This catalogue of an exhibition celebrating the centenary of Paul Mellon's birth features eighty-eight outstanding watercolors from the fifty thousand works of art on paper with which he endowed the Yale Center for British Art. The selection spans roughly the hundred years from the emergence of watercolor painting in the mid-eighteenth century to its apogee in the mid-nineteenth. These works highlight the diversity of British watercolor painting, showcasing both landscape and figurative subjects by some of the principal artists working in the medium, including Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Rowlandson, William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, and John Constable."--Jacket
