Frederick Carl Frieseke : the evolution of an American impressionist by Frederick C Frieseke( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and Italian and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A biographical overview and a detailed chronology by the artist's grandson, including vintage photographs, provide much new information and correct several misconceptions about Frieseke's life and career. Three essays by leading scholars discuss the diverse stages of his work and place it in art historical context, detailing his experience as a student at Whistler's atelier in Paris and as a central member of the group of American expatriates who settled in Giverny, France, near the French master Monet. The book casts new light on Frieseke, American Impressionism, and the art world at the turn of the last century."--Jacket

A young woman in the hair salon raises her a in a furtive gesture, frank and tantalizingly brief, to show a friend the work in progress: a riot of stunning tattoos. From his accidental vantage point in the barber's chair, Fred Taylor knows that those images?weird insects, beasts, and naked human figures?could only come from something nice, a painting that, if he could only see the original in person, might prove to be rare and of significant value. And the girls don't have a clue. Such a painting needs to be understood and identified, but before that can happen it must be found. Fred's inquiries lead from the hairdresser to the illegal tattoo parlor of an unlicensed genius, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, into a dilapidated urban wilderness in neighboring New Hampshire. Fred is met everywhere by ignorance or denial. Anyone who must have seen the painting denies that it exists, despite the vivid proof increasingly laid bare on the hairdresser's skin. Fred's employer, the collector Clayton Reed, is out of the country. So Fred, left to his own devices, is free to follow the trail, despite the distraction of the intriguing librarian Molly Riley. Not wanting to spook his unwilling witnesses, Fred must proceed with caution even after he encounters the first serious bump in the road, a suspiciously convenient hit-and-run accident that turns one potential informant into an abrupt dead end. Can a painting that supposedly does not exist be worth a murder?

An American art colony by Paul H Mattingly( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An American Art Colony' demonstrates the social dimension of American art in the 20th century, paying special attention to the role of fellow artists, nonartists and the historical context of art production. The book treats the art colony, not as a static addendum to an artist's profile, but rather an essential ingredient in artistic life. The art colony here becomes an historical entity that changes over time and influences the kind of art that ensues. It is a special methodology of the study that collective features of three generation of artists help clarify how artists engage their audiences. Since many of these artists worked within the cultural confines of metropolitan New York and its magazine industry, they cultivated subjects that were recognizable by ordinary citizens. Early on, they drew from the emergent suburban life of their neighbors for their artistic themes. Gradually these contexts become more formally institutionalized and their subjects gravitated away from themes of ordinary life to themes more exotic, expressionistic and fanciful. A key methodology for this study consisted of an analysis of collective biographies of 170 participating artists. The theme of modern art explains here how abstraction was suborned to public images, widening the very meaning of the term modern
