William Glackens by William H Gerdts( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Glackens was one of the most influential American painters in the first decades of the twentieth century. From his beginnings as a witty magazine artist-illustrator in Philadelphia and New York to his participation in the forward-thinking group of artists dubbed The Eight, Glackens was a perceptive interpreter of his surroundings. Glackens, one of the most versatile and popular artists of his time, assimilated the lighthearted modern French themes of spirited cafes and bustling parks and resorts in such canvases as Chez Mouquin (1905) and Sledding, Central Park (1912). An admirer of the more traditional figure painting of the Impressionist Renoir, his name also became closely linked to the modern artists who exhibited their works at the famous Armory Show of 1913, which Glackens helped organize. This important study, the first major monograph on Glackens, includes an insightful essay by Dr. William Gerdts and a complete catalog, introduced by curator Jorge Santis, describing the incomparable holdings of the Glackens Collection of the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With a chronology, bibliography, and index, this profusely illustrated volume is sure to become the standard reference on Glackens for historians and collectors of twentieth-century art
Santa Claus's partner by Thomas Nelson Page( Book )

8 editions published between 1899 and 2011 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A children's novel about Santa Claus and a man who helps him deliver toys to the children in his town, Santa Claus's Partner depicts Santa's workshop, the North Pole, elves and reindeer with beautiful color illustrations. Elves have been depicted as Santa's traditional helpers as early as 1850, when Louisa May Alcott completed, but never published a book entitled Christmas Elves. The small creatures assist in the toy-making process in Santa's workshop at the North Pole and are traditionally described as wearing green or red and having pointed ears. In some works, including Clement C. Moore's famous "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," Santa himself is described as "a right jolly old elf."
