The vital gesture, Franz Kline : Cincinnati Art Museum by Harry F Gaugh( Book )

9 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walker Evans : decade by decade by James Crump( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The photographs of Walker Evans (1903-1975) altered the American consciousness; many of his images are fixed in our collective memory. His uncompromising documentation of poverty during the Great Depression is iconic in the history of photography, yet his equally innovative works produced in the ensuing decades have been little known and underappreciated. This monograph, spanning all of Evans's work, presents many photographs that are only rarely seen, including his last images, the Polaroids he shot in the early 1970s. The photographer's rising influence in the 1970s and his symbiotic relationship with legendary Museum of Modern Art curator John Szarkowski are at the core of this revisionist volume"--Cover, p. 2

John Henry Twachtman : an American impressionist by Lisa N Peters( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Twachtman was one of the most modern American painters of his day. A founding member of the Ten American Painters and an important teacher at the Art Students League, Twachtman combined European and American influences to create his own highly individual artistic style. Throughout his career, Twachtman won the approval of his fellow artists by challenging artistic conventions and experimenting with innovative subject matter. This catalogue is the first in-depth assessment of Twachtman's career. In an essay based on fresh research, Lisa N. Peters provides the definitive account of Twachtman's life as an artist. With an eye for the critical reception of his work, Peters constructs a narrative of Twachtman's artistic development, from his student days in Munich to his early death in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Accompanying the traveling exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art, this fully illustrated catalogue elegantly reveals the subtle delicacy of Twachtman's oeuvre."--Jacket
Henry Ossawa Tanner : modern spirit by Henry Ossawa Tanner( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautiful book, companion publication to the exhibition of the same name, presents a complex overview of the life and career of the pioneering African American artist Henry O. Tanner (1859-1937). Recognized as the patriarch of African American artists, Tanner forged a path to international success, powerfully influencing younger black artists who came after him. Following a preface by David Driskell, the essays in this book -- written by international scholars including Alan Braddock, Michael Leja, Jean-Claude Lesage, Richard Powell, Marc Simpson, Tyler Stovall, and Hélène Valance -- explore many facets of Tanner's life, including his upbringing in post-Civil War Philadelphia, his background as the son of a bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal church, and his role as the first major academically trained African American artist. Additional essays discuss Tanner's expatriate life in France, his depictions of the Holy Land and North Africa, and the scientific and technical innovations reflected in his oeuvre. Edited and introduced by Anna O. Marley, this volume expands our understanding of Tanner's place in art history, showing that his status as a painter was deeply influenced by his race but not decided by it--Publisher

The arts of Kashmir by Pratapaditya Pal( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An important cultural bridge between the Indian subcontinent and regions to the west and east for over two millennia, the Kashmir Valley was a vibrant hub of intellectual activity for its Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim populations. Multiple cultural influences have fostered a unique artistic environment of diverse aesthetics, witnessed in this landmark exhibition of 130 sumptuous objects of exemplary quality, dating from the 2nd to the 20th centuries. The Arts of Kashmir comprises works of Buddhist, Hindu, and Islamic art, including sculpture, painting, and calligraphy loaned from collections in the U.S., Europe, and India. Many of the objects have never been seen outside of India; in some cases they have never been exhibited or published anywhere. To provide a sense of the broad artistic contributions of this famously lush and beautiful region, the exhibition includes examples of stone and bronze sculptures and manuscript paintings, in addition to the fine examples of papier-mache, carpets, shawls, and embroidery for which Kashmir is renowned."--Publisher's website
Imperishable beauty : art nouveau jewelry by Yvonne J Markowitz( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A new, imperishable beauty," was how the artist and architect Henry van de Velde described it. European Art Nouveau jewelry of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries embraced a new aesthetic characterized by sensuous forms, dramatic imagery and vivid symbolism. Many of the designers associated with the movement sought their inspiration not in traditional jewelry, but in the work of the pre-Raphaelites and Impressionists and in the arts of Japan. Rejecting the rigid naturalism typical of European decorative arts, designers such as Ren Lalique and Henry van de Velde, and the artists of the German Jugenstil and Austrian Wiener Sezession movements, created ornaments that expressed the spirit and freedom of the era. These artists and designers adopted a free-flowing line and asymmetrical format that invigorated their work and set it apart, while their use of natural motifs and of the female form imbued their creations with energy, sensuality and dreamy mysticism. But underlying the undeniable exuberance of these works was a fin-de-sicle edginess that endows this period with inexhaustible fascination." "Illustrating nearly eighty ornaments from a single private collection - the finest of its type in America - Imperishable Beauty features all of the major designers and jewelers from this groundbreaking era. Paintings, prints, posters and textiles fill out the presentation, making this book as rich and intoxicating as the aesthetic it portrays."--BOOK JACKET
