Mirror of the medieval world by William D Wixom( Book )

18 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Highlighted in these pages - and in an accompanying exhibition that allows the public to savor many of the works at first hand - are more than 300 purchases and gifts. Although a great majority of the objects have been on view and have figured in various Metropolitan Museum publications over the last two decades, many works have remained unpublished until now. Following a Foreword by the Director, the Introduction by William D. Wixom provides an overview of the enrichment of the collections under his stewardship. The reader then discovers how lacunae were filled, as highly significant examples of the art of the Middle Ages took their place among others with equally impressive provenances." "For those unaware of the richness and quality of the medieval treasures available for edification and enjoyment in New York's foremost museum, this volume offers an exciting introduction; for students and scholars of medieval art, it presents the opportunity to take an armchair tour of old favorites encountered on past visits to the Metropolitan's galleries and to become acquainted with the many splendid additions."--Jacket

Medieval sculpture at the Metropolitan : 800 to 1400 by William D Wixom( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second Bulletin by William D. Wixom devoted to a survey of medieval sculptures in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum. The first volume, published in the winter of 1989, provides a summary of independent sculptures at The Cloisters. The present volume focuses on similar works, as well as several from architectural contexts on display in the galleries of the Medieval department in the main building of the Museum. Ranging in date from the ninth century to the late decades of the fourteenth century, the works discussed come from all over Europe and include ivory reliefs from the Carolingian, Ottonian, and Early Romanesque periods, statues made of copper alloy with gilding from the high Romanesque and Early Gothic periods, stone heads taken from full-length relief figures from the Gothic period, enthroned figures made of movable wood and stone from Late Gothic period, and smaller-scale carvings and statues from these five centuries. William D. Wixom, former Michel David-Weill chairman and now curator emeritus of the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters, examines chronology, style, iconography, and context as the primary and multifaceted basis for his study of these sculptures. In addition, he considers these works in terms of their expressive and decorative formal elements, including the interrelationships of mass, line, proportion, symmetry, texture, and color. Together, these factors accentuate the rich artistry of the largely anonymous medieval artists represented in the Museums collection. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Providing a rare glimpse into one of the finest private art collections in the world, this book presents the extraordinary collection of the Neue Galerie's co-founder, Ronald S. Lauder. This book accompanies an exhibition of the Lauder collection at the Neue Galerie, which celebrates its tenth anniversary in the fall of 2011. The book focuses on six areas: medieval art, arms and armor, Old Master paintings, nineteenth- and twentieth-century drawings, fine and decorative art of turn-of-thetwentieth-century Vienna, and modern and contemporary art. It features works by Constantin Brancusi, Paul Cézanne, Vasily Kandinsky, Ellsworth Kelly, Gustav Klimt, Jackson Pollock, Piet Mondrian, and Pablo Picasso, among many others. Essays by medieval art specialist William Wixom; Stuart Phyrr, arms and armor curator, Metropolitan Museum of Art; esteemed drawings collector Eugene Thaw; independent scholars Christian Witt-Dörring and Alessandra Comini; and Ann Temkin, chief curator of painting and sculpture, The Museum of Modern Art, discuss how the Lauder collection was assembled and round out this generously illustrated volume. Encompassing a broad range of masterworks, this book offers an in-depth look at the Lauder collection through numerous illustrations and scholarly essays."--Publisher's website

Tilman Riemenschneider : master sculptor of the late Middle Ages by Tilman Riemenschneider( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sculpture of Tilman Riemenschneider stands solidly anchored in the late Gothic tradition, while it also reflects emerging humanist concerns. Riemenschneider, who was active in Wurzburg from around 1483 until 1531, was one of the first sculptors to abandon polychromy on occasion, making a conscious aesthetic decision to leave visible his favored material, limewood. His sculpture strikes a rare balance between formal elegance and expressive strength, and it is among the most appealing work of the late Middle Ages." "The approximately fifty works documented in this handsome volume offer a fresh look at this great master. The book presents a broad survey of Riemenschneider's oeuvre, including representative work from all periods of his career. Contributors explore the sources for his art, his social milieu and the organization of his workshop, the critical reception of his work, his polychrome and monochrome sculpture."--Publisher's description
