Gwen John : with a catalogue raisonné of the paintings and a selection of the drawings by Cecily Langdale( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From London in the 1890s to Paris in the early twentieth century, Gwen John's career spanned some of the most exciting periods and places in cultural history. Demolishing the myth of Gwen John (1876-1939) as a recluse, this new survey explores the art world at the center of these cities and reveals the alliances and differences the artist had with her contemporaries. John's representation of the female nude, her paintings of interiors, and the effects of her Catholic faith on her work are all considered. The author also discusses the key relationship between John's position as a woman artist and her fascination with the portrayal of the female sitter. -- Provided by publisher
Gwen John : a painter's life by Sue Roe( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1942, at the height of his fame, Augustus John predicted that 'fifty years after my death I shall be remembered as Gwen John's brother'. Gwen John (1876-1939) is indeed now recognised as a great artistic innovator, yet for years her life remained shrouded in the myth of the solitary recluse. Born in Pembrokeshire, Gwen followed her brother to the Slade. She would always be bound up with Augustus, his women and his coteries, yet she was also daring and highly original, living determinedly in her own way." "Based on her lively and passionate unpublished letters, and copiously illustrated, this new biography challenges our prejudices about the ways we evaluate women artists and finally uncovers the life of this ardent and complicated personality."--Jacket
Gwen John by Alicia Foster( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From London in the 1890s to Paris during the early decades of the twentieth century, Gwen John's career spanned one of the most exciting periods in cultural history. Rather than reiterating the myth of Gwen John as a recluse, this new survey places the artist at the centre of the cities where she worked in order to appreciate her art in its context, and explore the alliances and differences the artist had with her contemporaries." "Gwen John's representation of the female nude, her paintings of interiors and the effect of her Catholic faith on her work are all considered. The author also discusses the key relationship between Gwen John's position as a woman artist and her life-long fascination with the portrayal of the female sitter"--Jacket

Helene Schjerfbeck und Gwen John : der Ausdruck von Emotionen in der Malerei der Moderne by Marie Christine Jádi( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helene Schjerfbeck, die finnisch-schwedischer Herkunft war, und ihre walisische Zeitgenossin Gwen John nahmen beide die Sehnsucht nach "dunklen Seelentiefen" zum Ausgangspunkt für ihr künstlerisches Schaffen. In ihrem Inneren hofften sie etwas zu entdecken, das sie mittels der Malerei sichtbar machen könnten. Die reduzierte Form- und Farbgebung sowie die verschwommenen Konturen ihrer Bilder vermitteln einen ruhigen und harmonischen Eindruck? und damit eine ganz spezifische Stimmung. Die Autorin untersucht den Ausdruck von Emotionen in den Werken der beiden Künstlerinnen, die hier erstmals in einen Zusammenhang gestellt werden. Anhand von ausführlichen Bildanalysen zeigt Jádi, wie Schjerfbeck und John aus der Innenschau heraus zu einem neuen und jeweils eigenen Stil fanden
