William Glackens by William H Gerdts( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 657 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 )

6 editions published between 1899 and 2011 in English and held by 293 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."

"A monumental new monograph accompanying the first major retrospective in fifty years of the work of William Glackens, an important American realist painter. This richly illustrated volume provides a comprehensive introduction to William Glackens (1870-1938), one of the liveliest and most influential American painters of the early twentieth century. A founder of the Ashcan School, along with painters such as Robert Henri and John Sloan, Glackens was crucial to the introduction of modern art in the United States through his collaboration with Albert C. Barnes and his championing of landmark exhibitions of American and European avant-garde art. The finest examples of his works over a fifty-year career, including paintings previously unknown to the general public, are reproduced here -- from intimate nudes, portraits, and figure studies to vivid still lifes, vibrant street scenes, and landscapes, in which he captured people and their surroundings with matchless spontaneity and spirit. The book features essays by important scholars examining the artist's relationship with French painting, his social observation and interest in costume, his depiction of women, and his role as a tastemaker"--Amazon.com, viewed March 4, 2014
