Most widely held works by Yale Center for British Art
George Stubbs, 1724-1806 by George Stubbs( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 730 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

James Tissot : Victorian life, modern love by Nancy Rose Marshall( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Tissot (1836-1902), the wry and urbane observer of manners and fashions, painted scenes from the life of "society" that simmer with undercurrents of sexual drama. This book presents nearly a hundred paintings, prints, and watercolors from every phase of Tissot's career, including such signature paintings as The Ball on Shipboard, Hush! (The Concert), and London Visitors." "Nancy Rose Marshall and Malcolm Warner explore Tissot's themes and interests and consider the influence on his work of Charles Baudelaite's brilliant essay on the aesthetics of modernity, Le Peintre de la vie moderne. They examine how Tissot dealt with the ways of modern love in Paris and London in the later nineteenth century."--Jacket
Presences of nature : British landscape, 1780-1830 by Louis Hawes( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edwardian opulence : British art at the dawn of the twentieth century by Angus Trumble( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Edwardian age was as brief as the Victorian era that preceded it was long. It has been depicted as an indolent summer afternoon of imperial and elite complacency, but also as a period of rapid political, economic, and artistic change, culminating in the First World War. This magnificent book explores themes of power, nostalgia, and a contrasting lightness of touch that characterized the period. Issues of creation, consumption, and display are examined through a range of objects, including portraits by Sargent and Boldini, diamond tiaras and ostrich-feather fans, jewel-like Autochrome color photography, and a spectacular embroidered gown that belonged to the American-born Vicereine of India. Spanning divides of class and geography, this book identifies opulence and leisure as driving forces for the domestic and imperial British economic engine in the early years of the 20th century

Canaletto in England : a Venetian artist abroad, 1746-1755 by Charles Beddington( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on Canaletto in England, reproducing the views of London he painted while there as well as the Italian and imaginary views he painted in response to the vigorous demands of his patrons." "The book, which also serves as the catalogue of an exhibition at the Yale Center for British Art and Dulwich Picture Gallery, offers a full study of Canaletto's English period along with detailed catalogue entries for about fifty paintings and twenty drawings. The works depict such landmarks as St. Paul's Cathedral, Somerset House, and Westminster Bridge as well as inventive scenes in which the artist playfully reorganizes a view or places a familiar element in an unexpected location."--Jacket

He is still a regular contributor to Vanity Fair and to Vogue, for which he took his first pictures over forty-five years ago, making him the magazine's longest-serving contributor."--Jacket

Great British watercolors : from the Paul Mellon collection at the Yale Center for British Art by Matthew Hargraves( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a period of a little over fifteen years, beginning in the early 1960s, Paul Mellon (1907-1999) assembled one of the world's greatest collections of British drawings and watercolors. As part of his extensive collecting of British art, he purchased several distinguished private collections of British watercolors, enriching and expanding them with purchases reflecting his own taste." "This catalogue of an exhibition celebrating the centenary of Paul Mellon's birth features eighty-eight outstanding watercolors from the fifty thousand works of art on paper with which he endowed the Yale Center for British Art. The selection spans roughly the hundred years from the emergence of watercolor painting in the mid-eighteenth century to its apogee in the mid-nineteenth. These works highlight the diversity of British watercolor painting, showcasing both landscape and figurative subjects by some of the principal artists working in the medium, including Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Rowlandson, William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, and John Constable."--Jacket
