Manet : the still-life paintings by George L Mauner( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Still-life painting offers everything from pure sensual pleasure to a challenge for rigorous aesthetic analysis. A bowl of luscious fruit, a vase of exquisite flowers, an arrangement of food on a table - all can be enjoyed on many levels." "Manet's still-life paintings are among the finest ever created, and account for almost one-fifth of all his works. The full range of these oils, watercolors, and prints is discussed in this study and beautifully reproduced in color."--BOOK JACKET

Noble dreams, wicked pleasures : orientalism in America, 1870-1930 by Holly Edwards( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Noble Dreams, Wicked Pleasures explores complex American attitudes toward the Near East--as revealed in collected paintings, interior design, and multiple vernacular forms--at the formative moment of industrialization and the crystallization of a truly mass culture. Published to coincide with the multimedia exhibition that opens at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and travels to the Walters Art Gallery and the Mint Museum of Art, this catalogue considers how urban, mercantile, Protestant America represented the Islamic world of the Middle East and North Africa in ways that say more about itself than the foreign culture. This gorgeously illustrated volume first looks at the use of Orientalist stereotypes by some of the country's most important high art painters of the nineteenth century: Frederic Edwin Church's treatment of the exotic terrain through a lens of deep religiosity; a more cosmopolitan reading of the harem girl by John Singer Sargent; the perfumed alternative to industrial capitalism conjured in the landscapes and market scenes of Samuel Colman and Louis Comfort Tiffany; and interpretations of the Orient as emancipatory by Ella Pell, the only major woman Orientalist. The book next traces the popularization of Orientalism in the decorative arts (including a few treasures from Olana, Church's Moorish-style home on the Hudson), on Broadway, and in Hollywood, as well as through advertising that linked consumer products with visual suggestions of exotic sexuality and through cultural objects, such as the Shriners' fez

Pandora : women in classical Greece by Ellen D Reeder( Book )
9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spotlighting superb examples of classical Greek art in the context of recent findings in anthropology, social history, psychology, classics, and classical archaeology, Pandora offers a multifaceted look at women in myth, ritual, and daily life in classical Greece. Written to accompany an international traveling exhibition organized by the Walters Art Gallery, this volume examines the imagery of classical Greek marbles, bronzes, terracottas, and vases in order to understand how women were perceived and how they lived. Pandora offers a new emphasis on myths dealing with the unmarried maiden and the difficulty of the transition to marriage and motherhood - as exemplified in the stories of Danae, Thetis, Atalanta, and Amymone. Also explored are images of containers and untamed animals as metaphors for women; rituals involving women, such as the wedding and the cult of the Little Bears at Brauron; the character and cult of goddesses; and the close association of women with textiles
