Stubbs & the horse by Malcolm Warner( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Stubbs (1724-1806) was a versatile genius whose work includes paintings, prints, and detailed anatomical studies. His many images of horses show a classical beauty, expressiveness, and heroism previously reserved for the human figure. This handsome book presents for the first time the wide range of his equine imagery, from refined portraits of racehorses to violent scenes of horses attacked by lions in the wild. Published to coincide with a major traveling exhibition, Stubbs and the Horse celebrates the artist whom many consider to be the greatest painter of horses in the history of art."--Jacket
George Stubbs by Martin Myrone( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Stubbs (1724-1806) is one of Britain's best-loved painters. His pictures of famous racehorses and their riders and the more dramatic works showing horses and lions in combat are among the most familiar images in British art, prized for their subtlety, naturalism and piercing observation. Once marginalised as merely a humble sporting artist, Stubbs is now recognised as a key figure in British cultural tradition. In this highly original study, Martin Myrone presents a less familiar account of the artist. From his earliest anatomical studies through to his depictions of exotic animals and experiments with the industrialist Josiah Wedgwood, Stubbs is shown to have been dynamicallly engaged with the science, technology and popular culture of his day. He emerges from this new account as an artist more experimental and challenging than is conventionally thought."--Back cover

Stubbs & Wedgwood : unique alliance between artist and potter by Bruce Tattersall( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty for making discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret, and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour : drawn up from the journals which were kept by the several commanders, and from the papers of Joseph Banks, Esq by John Hawkesworth( Book )

2 editions published in 1773 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bestseller in its day, this three-volume work vividly recounts significant voyages made by Britain's leading navigators. A prominent figure in London cultural life, John Hawkesworth (c.1720-73) was commissioned by the Admiralty to compile, from the captains' journals, the official record of voyages which included James Cook's first journey to the South Pacific. Reissued here is the Dublin edition based on the first printing of 1773; a second edition appeared later in the year. Critical opinion was fierce, however, with Hawkesworth accused of impiety, manipulating the original texts and promoting the sexual freedoms of Pacific islanders. Devastated by these attacks, he died the same year. Later taken aboard the Beagle with Darwin, the work still speaks to scholars and students of nautical exploration. Volume 1 includes accounts of voyages by John Byron, Philip Carteret and Samuel Wallis - notably the latter's discovery of Tahiti

George Stubbs, 1724-1806 by George Stubbs( Book )

13 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stubbs was for too long under-valued by the label 'Mr. Stubbs the Horse Painter'. He is now recognized as deserving an equal place with his contemporaries Gainsborough and Reynolds in the foremost rank of British art. He is the most original and searching of all animal painters, whether his subject is a broodmare and foal, a monkey, or a poodle in a punt; he is also a realistic and perceptive portraitist of human beings, as much a master of the art of class distinction in eighteenth-century England as he is of the anatomy of the horse. Above all, he is a master of design, able to translate faithful observations from nature into unforgettable images. This is by far the most fully illustrated book on Stubbs available. All the works in Tate Gallery's George Stubbs exhibition of 1984-1985 are reproduced in colour, including some which have never before been reproduced, and focusing on many fascinating details in his work."--Provided by publisher
