The National Gallery, London by Homan Potterton( Book )

30 editions published between 1977 and 1990 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Homan Potterton here gives a birds's-eye view of one of the richest collections of paintings in the world. Others may excel in particular schools, but the National Gallery of London is unique in it's coverage of the whole of European painting, from International Gothic to Post-Impressionism. The illustrations of which 75 are in color, include works by great masters of all periods: Botticelli and Leonardo, Michelangelo and Titian, El Grecco and Rubens, Rembrandt and Vermeer, Watteau and Gainsborough, Constable and Turner, Degas, Cézanne and (one of the gallery's latest acquisitions) Klimt. A novel feature is the inclusion of comparative illustrations showing such things as related works, preliminary drawings and x-ray photographs, in order to explain a paintings evolution. The introduction is divided into two parts. The first tells the story of the growth of the collection. The second is a description of the physical components of a painting ( wood, canvas, paint, varnish) and the technique of cleaning, restoring and conserving an item. The book ends with a complete list of all the National Gallery's 2,044 pictures, forming an invaluable reference catalogue."--Cover page 4
Frederick Hart: sculptor by Frederick Hart( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Text and picture portfolios focus on Hart's major public sculptures: the monumental Creation works at the main entrance to Washington National Cathedral and the larger-than-life-size bronze Three Soldiers at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, both in the nation's capital. The portfolios show the development of these two important national monuments. Hart's cathedral work reflects a contemporary theological perspective which envisions Creation as not just a singular act but a state of constant becoming. His Vietnam Veterans Memorial statue fulfills the public's need for the reflection of the human face in our monuments in order to give human perspective and meaning to our history

Rathcormick : a childhood recalled by Homan Potterton( Recording )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in 1950s rural Ireland, Rathcormick is an engaging tale of a large and happy family: a stern and domineering Papa, a warm and practical Mamma, their two daughters and six sons. For Homan, the youngest, life is a free-spirited awakening in an adult world of old-fashioned virtue and frugality. He recalls the moment that the day-old chicks arrived, holidays in Kilkee and the eight-mile trudge to school. But no boyhood lasts forever, and an abrupt turn of events signals an end to the idyll
