Winslow Homer : paintings of the Civil War by Marc Simpson ( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume has been published on the occasion of the first monographic exhibition uniting the majority of the Civil War paintings of Winslow Homer ... The essays and related materials that inform this book offer a close reading of Homer's paintings in the cultural context of the Civil War period and the critical responses with which the works were originially received ... accompanied by a diverse array of period media illustrations and cartoons, as well as Homer's sketches"--Dustjacket
Georgia O'Keeffe and the camera : the art of identity by Susan Danly ( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: From her appearance as a provocative young artist in Alfred Stieglitz's photographs to her depiction as a grande dame of the art world in silkscreens by Andy Warhol, Georgia O'Keeffe captivated the media with her image of a woman as bold as her art. This beautifully illustrated book tells the stories behind the portraits of one of the 20th century's foremost American painters. O'Keeffe's professional and personal relationships with the leading photographers of her time come to light, as does her ability to shape public perceptions of her career. Stieglitz first created photographs of his protegee posing in front of her abstract artworks as a manifestation of a sexually liberated woman. O'Keeffe later redefined her image, sometimes working with photographers at her homes in New Mexico, where she emerged as a rugged individualist among the animal bones and gnarled trees that she often painted. This publication brings together for the first time photographs by Stieglitz, Newman, Loengard, Webb, and others-many of which probe fascinating tensions between abstractionism and realism in O'Keeffe's art. In addition, a selection of O'Keeffe's works chronicles the span of her long career
American moderns on paper : masterworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Young America : childhood in 19th-century art and culture by Claire Perry ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In an era of both optimism and anxiety about the nation's future, Americans in the nineteenth century focused attention on the cultivation and education of children as future citizens. Contemporary portrayals of children - in fine paintings, popular prints, illustrated primers, and advertisements - helped to shape cultural expectations: pictures of hardy country boys, intent schoolchildren, and little girls practicing embroidery were examples of the ways model Americans should look and behave. At the same time, images showing street urchins, young slaves, or children at work in factories reflected troubling conflicts in society. This appealing book explores representations of children in relation to the currents of American culture, including urbanization, immigration, separate spheres of the genders, and the nation's professed devotion to egalitarianism. A generous selection of illustrations includes well-loved works by such artists as Winslow Homer and Eastman Johnson, as well as fascinating archival images. With engaging depictions of children from varied economic, racial, and geographic backgrounds, Young America opens a new window on the life and culture of the United States during a century of vast change and growth
Affinities of form : arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas from the Raymond and Laura Wielgus collection by Diane Pelrine ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Affinities of Form: Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas examines the motives that led Raymond Wielgus to become a collector and that guided him to his chosen field. Wielgus originally made his name as a maker of high-quality prototype models for potential new products in the manufacturing industry, and the book shows how the very special experience gained in this profession molded his view of the art of collecting. It lists the criteria that he applied to the objects to be included in the collection and assesses the importance of the skill with which they were eventually displayed. The collection spans in excess of three thousand years of ethnographic art and contains exquisite masterpieces produced by the indigenous peoples of Africa, the islands of the Pacific, and the Americas."--BOOK JACKET. "The book starts by analyzing the sources of the objects amassed since the dawn of collecting ethnographic objects in the early 1800s and discusses how representative they are of their cultures of origin. It puts the Wielgus collection in context with other notable collections. The text honestly acknowledges the probable damage that enthusiastic collecting has inflicted upon some of the sites from which these artifacts derive, but argues that this has been in part offset by the spread of knowledge through the literature published on the great collections."--BOOK JACKET. "One hundred of the most important objects from the Wielgus collection are illustrated in color. The photography employs dramatic use of light and shade, excitingly conveying the visual power of these beautiful objects. The illustrations are divided into three sections: Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, and the provenance and importance of each is analyzed in the context of the history of the respective geographical regions."--BOOK JACKET
Frank Lobdell : the art of making and meaning by Frank Lobdell ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Picasso, Braque, Léger, and the Cubist spirit, 1919-1939 by Kenneth Wayne ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents art and design in France during the years between the two World Wars, in an effort to dispel the perception that Cubism was only a pre-World War I phenomenon. After the war, Cubist painting became more varied, colorful, and accessible, and began to affect other media such as furniture, fashion, cinema and architecture. What had begun as a rarefied pictorial style became a popular language. The first essay addresses Picasso's abundant and varied cubist painting. The second essay treats the art of three major Cubists -- Picasso, Braque, and Leger -- in the context of the various cubist idioms that developed. The third essay, also broad in scope, examines the significant relationship between Cubism and the decorative arts in France

"This beautifully illustrated catalogue celebrates Homer's legacy at Prouts Neck, and documents the Portland Museum of Art's six-year conservation project to preserve the Winslow Homer Studio, the former carriage house in which Homer lived and worked. Photographs of the studio and site, never before open to the public, highlight views that are recognizable as the subject of so many of Homer's paintings. Essays by leading scholars examine his iconic masterpieces; his artistic development in Prouts Neck; the architecture of his studio; his relationship to French painting; and the full range of his marine paintings."--Publisher's website
