Edward Burne-Jones, Victorian artist-dreamer by Stephen Wildman( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pupil of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and a protege of John Ruskin, Burne-Jones belonged to the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, creating a narrative style of romantic symbolism steeped in medieval legend and fused with the influence of Italian Renaissance masters that was to have widespread influence on both British and European art. Within the sophisticated culture of the late Victorian period, Burne-Jones's star rose rapidly, and by the 1880s he had become the establishment artist par excellence, one of the most admired and sought-after painters in Europe
Turner's Britain by James Hamilton( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great English artist J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) travelled around Britain at a time of exceptional change and upheaval following the Industrial Revolution. Unusually for a London childhood at the end of the eighteenth century, Turner's was spent away with relatives for long periods, and this set the pattern for a lifetime of journeys that saw him criss-crossing Britain in search of patronage and subject-matter. As Turner's poetry and the pattern of his print publishing confirm, it was the complex image of a growing sense of nationhood that he captured and celebrated as Britain grew to be the world's first industrial power." "Author James Hamilton takes us on Turner's restless journeys on foot and horseback, by stagecoach and riverboat, as the artist sketched the rural market towns, the burgeoning industrial cities and the lonely landscapes of Wales, northern England and Scotland. Britain's past is honoured in the looming forms of ancient castles and churches, and in the picturesque jumble of ancient shops and thoroughfares; its present by canals, soldiery and industrial workings." "Turner witnessed the repercussions of war in Europe and the threat of invasion to see Britain, the island kingdom, emerge as a triumphant naval power. By the 1840s Turner, now in old age, moved from his depiction of the dramatic interior of Britain to its edges. In his last images of the sea and shore, we look out across the water through Turner's eyes to a beckoning but indistinct future."--Jacket
Art & the 60s : this was tomorrow by Tate Britain (Gallery)( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art and the 60s presents a comprehensive cultural history of the period, exploring a wide range of visual media, including fine art, architecture and photography, examining works in the context of such phenomena as Americanisation, the breakdown of the divide between 'high' and 'low' culture, pop music, the sexual revolution and the growth of the counter-culture." "Illustrated throughout and featuring contributions by leading writers on the period, Art and the 60s is both a history of the art of a generation and the portrait of an era."--Jacket
Love revealed : Simeon Solomon and the Pre-Raphaelites by Colin Cruise( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sun, wind, and rain : the art of David Cox by David Cox( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The watercolor Sun, Wind, and Rain, painted in 1845, typifies the concerns with representing light and atmosphere and weather that lie at the heart of David Cox's landscape art. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1783, Cox was destined to become a major figure in the linked worlds of landscape painting and watercolor painting in the first half of the nineteenth century. No significant study of the artist has been undertaken in more than a century. This illustrated volume focuses attention on Cox, filling in the details of his biography and illuminating his contributions to British landscape painting." "Scott Wilcox investigates Cox's artistic identity and his legacy. Other essays address such topics as Birmingham's cultural milieu; myths about Cox's life; the papers he chose; his painting in oils; and the fakes, forgeries, and misattributions that have challenged attempts to identify his oeuvre with certainty."--Jacket

George Catlin : American Indian portraits by George Catlin( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, and the exhibition it accompanies, showcases works from Catlin's 'Indian Gallery' - a series of portraits not seen in the UK since the 1840s - and seeks to reposition this remarkable artist for a contemporary audience. The authors explore the origins of Catlin's achievement: his ambition to record what he believed to be dying cultures, and his collecting activities, educational intentions and methods of exhibition and display, which demonstrate the growth of a new sensibility towards native peoples. While Catlin's work is well known in the USA, especially in Washington DC, where most of it is still housed in the Smithsonian Institution, George Catlin's Indian Gallery will help to bring these spectacular pictures to new audiences in Britain and around the world.

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ford Madox Brown : the unofficial Pre-raphaelite : works on paper by Ford Madox Brown from Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery by Ford Madox Brown( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ford Madox Brown: The Unofficial Pre-Raphaelite - the third in a series of publications on Birmingham's unique collection of nineteenth-century drawings - throws new light on this important artist. Born in France in 1821, Ford Madox Brown was older than his contemporaries Holman Hunt, Millais, and pupil Rossetti. The creator of seminal nineteenth-century paintings, including Work and The Last of England, Brown has nevertheless remained a presence that defies easy categorisation in art history. Never officially a member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, he was, however, a central figure within this major nineteenth-century art movement. As Brown said of himself in 1851,'if not an actual Pre-Raphaelite Brother, I am an aider and abettor of Pre-Raphaelitism'." "The volume illustrates fifty-five selected drawings and works on paper, which appear throughout the essays and the main exhibition presentation, forty of which are reproduced in colour. Each work is accompanied by an entry, which includes specifications, provenance, inscriptions and an extended caption. A full catalogue listing of the Museums' 174 works on paper by Madox Brown appears in this volume, which will be incorporated into a new online Pre-Raphaelite Resource Site. This includes sketch and study drawings, watercolours, stained glass designs, design for wood engravings and archive material dating from the 1840s to the 1890s, which were largely acquired through public subscription from the collection of Charles Fairfax Murray in 1906"--Jacket
