In honour of the 50th birthday of the Sheldon Museum of Art's Philip Johnson-designed building and the 125th anniversary of the Sheldon Art Association and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln art collection, 'Painting from the collection of the Sheldon Museum of Art' showcases the Sheldon's impressive collection, featuring reproductions of 125 major works along with smart, engaging entries by a team of respected scholars. The catalogue presents some of the museum's most beloved and widely known canvases, including eighteenth- and nineteenth-century masterpieces by Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent and Benjamin West; iconic pictures by twentieth-century artists such as Edward Hopper, Lee Krasner, Barnett Newman, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Frank Stella and Andy Warhol; and works by both emerging artists and giants in the contemporary field, including Dan Christensen, Carmen Herrera, Hung Liu, Ed Ruscha, Patssi Valdez and Philemona Williamson. This survey highlights the artistic, cultural and geographic conflicts and concurrences that shaped more than two centuries of American painting and offers art enthusiasts and scholars alike a means to reconnect with old favourites while discovering new ones - all freshly interpreted based on recent discoveries and research
Encounters : photography from the Sheldon Museum of Art by Sheldon Museum of Art( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Résumé sur le rabat de la 1ère de couverture: "In this volume, the Sheldon Museum of Art presents more than one hundred examples from its distinguished photography collection, which contains nearly twenty-five hundred objects. Encompassing the full range of photographic history, Encounters showcases recognized masterpieces, recent acquisitions, and rarely seen treasures by a diverse range of artists, including Berenice Abbott, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Julia Margaret Cameron, Gertrude Käsebier, André Kertész, Robert Mapplethorpe, Yinka Shonibare, Paul Strand, William Henry Fox Talbot, and Carrie Mae Weems. Encounters explores photography through the lens of transnationalism, highlighting the artistic, cultural, geographic, scientific, and technological conflicts and concurrences that have shaped the modern photographic image. Arranged thematically rather than chronologically, the catalog addresses issues such as tourism, souvenir production, and the search for authenticity in the face of increasing industrialization; the transmission of American, European, and Mexican forms of modernism; gender identity and sexuality; the real and perceived tensions between nature and the built environment; and the convergences of art and science, craft and technology. Images are set within their context by the catalog's principal author, Brandon K. Ruud, and are accompanied by lively, thought-provoking essays by a team of scholars that includes Zeynep Çelik, Keith F. Davis, Gregory Nosan, Robert G. O'Meally, Britt Salveson, and the museum's director, Jorge Daniel Veneciano."

"This book celebrates the Gechts' gift of over thirty works to The Art Institute of Chicago, joining what has long been one of the most distinguished public collections of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century graphic arts in America. Showcasing the couple's bequest, Graphic Modernism is augmented by one hundred other examples from the family's important holdings. The Art Institute's staff worked closely with the Gechts in making selections for the museum that will fill lacunae and add strength to strength. In an informative introduction, Art Institute curator Suzanne Folds McCullagh relates the collection to the context in which it was formed. Each of the over 130 works included here is reproduced in full color, and is accompanied by an informative and accessible entry prepared by Art Institute staff and the Gechts' curator, Mark Krisco."--BOOK JACKET
