William Glackens by William H Gerdts ( Book )
6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 674 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

Alice Schille by William H Gerdts ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Alice Schille (1869-1955) was one of the finest watercolor artists of her time and among the foremost woman watercolorists ever produced in America. Born in Columbus, Ohio, she studied art in New York and Paris and was influenced by progressive art movements. Remarkably for a woman in that era, she was a world traveler, painting throughout the U.S. (including the Southwest), Europe, North Africa, and Latin America. One of Schille's greatest achievements is her communication of the fascination she herself derived from these travels." "Alice Schille brings together the artist's finest painting - still lifes, landscapes and gardens, mothers and children, market and harbor scenes. She captured the naturalness of childhood in an extremely appealing way, producing a series of warm, affecting images, managing a rare balance of realism and sentiment." "Alice Schille provides a full-scale critical biography and retrospective showing of the artist's work in the context of selected works by her contemporaries. It further documents her life and career with an illustrated Chronology; lists of Selected Exhibitions, Permanent Collections, Prizes and Awards, and Memberships; Bibliography and Index."--BOOK JACKET

The not-so-still life : a century of California painting and sculpture by Susan Landauer ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In illustrated essays, as entertaining as they are informative, The Not-So-Still Life traces the great variety of media and forms these artists have engaged as they have moved the still life not just off the table, but off the wall and into three dimensions. Susan Landauer, William H. Gerdts, and Patricia Trenton investigate a range of forces and influences - whether historical, sociological, economic, psychological, or biographical - that have played into this evolution, from the plein-air Impressionism of the early twentieth century to the Synchromist bouquets of Stanton Macdonald-Wright, the revolving table settings of Charles Ray, and the electronic sculptures of Alan Rath. In doing so they deepen our understanding of American art over the last century." "Presenting, interpreting, and celebrating the world-renowned and the lesser-known California artists who have uniquely defined and redefined the still life, this volume offers an exploration of the sensual pleasures, the aesthetic challenges, and the intellectual and perceptual associations of a century of art through the prism of a single genre."--BOOK JACKET
