Home lands : how women made the West by Virginia Scharff( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The storybook history of the American West is a male dominated narrative of drifters, dreamers, hucksters, and heroes, a tale that relegates women, assuming they appear at all, to the distant background. This book upends this view to remember the West as a place of homes and habitations brought into being by the women who lived there. The authors consider history's long span as they explore the ways in which women encountered and transformed three different archetypal Western landscapes: the Rio Arriba of northern New Mexico, the Front Range of Colorado, and the Puget Sound waterscape. This book, companion volume to the Autry National Center's exhibit, is an aggregate of women's history, the history of the American West, and studies in material culture. While linking each of these places' peoples to one another over hundreds, even thousands, of years, this work reimagines the West as a setting in which home has been created out of differing notions of dwelling and family and differing concepts of property, community, and history

The masterworks of Charles M. Russell : a retrospective of paintings and sculpture( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the decades bracketing the turn of the twentieth century, Charles M. Russell depicted the American West in a fresh, personal, and deeply moving way. To this day, Russell is celebrated for his paintings and sculptures of cowboys at work and play, his sensitive portrayals of American Indians, and his superlative representations of landscape and wildlife. This handsome book--a companion volume to the acclaimed Charles M. Russell: A Catalogue Raisonné, edited by B. Byron Price--showcases many of the artist's best-known works and chronicles the sources and evolution of his style. Here are iconic images that have defined the West in the popular imagination for more than a century. The volume boasts reproductions, most in full color, of more than 150 of Russell's finest works in oil, bronze, and mixed media. Select examples of his drawings, watercolors, and illustrated letters as well as archival photographs place Russell's paintings and sculpture in historic and artistic context."--Publisher description

After Lewis & Clark : the forces of change, 1806-1871 by Gary Allen Hood( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between May 1804 and September 1806, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and their Corps of Discovery explored a new expanse of America known as the Louisiana Purchase. They encountered lands, rivers, and peoples previously unknown Americans east of the Mississippi. During the next sixty-five years, Lewis and Clark's journey was followed by other explorations of the West, from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean and from Canada to Mexico. Artists often accompanied explorers as they encountered the unexpected and unique subjects of the American West. Inspired by the thrill of adventure and the majesty of high mountains, great chasms, and wide-open spaces, artists became eyewitnesses and visual commentators of the changing shape of the frontier -- and the tragic displacement of American Indian tribes. As these artists sought to capture on paper and canvas what they saw during their explorations and travels, they gave birth to American Western art. After Lewis and Clark highlights more than sixty paintings, drawings, and prints in the collection of one of America's finest museums of American art, the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This richly illustrated book presents and places in aesthetic and historical context many of the priceless portraits, striking scenes, and grand landscapes inspired during the sixty-five years after the Corps of Discovery completed its epic journey. It features the works of notable artists of the nineteenth-century American West, including George Catlin, Karl Bodmer, Alfred Jacob Miller, Charles Bird King, Paul Kane, Seth Eastman, Carl Wimar, John Mix Stanley, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Moran

The Codex canadensis and the writings of Louis Nicolas : the natural history of the New World by Louis Nicolas( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part art, part science, part anthropology, this ambitious project presents an early Canadian perspective on natural history that is as much artistic and fantastical as it is encyclopedic. Edited and introduced by François-Marc Gagnon, The Codex Canadensis and the Writings of Louis Nicolas showcases an intriguing attempt to document the life of the new world - flora, fauna, and aboriginal. The book brings together for the first time the illustrated Codex Canadensis and The Natural History of the New World, following Gagnon's argument that both can be attributed to Louis Nicolas, a French Jesuit priest who travelled throughout Canada between 1664 and 1675. Histoire Naturelle des Indes Occidentales, originally written in classical French, has been put in modern French by Réal Ouellet and translated into English by Nancy Senior. The Natural History presents a pre-Linnaean botany and pre-Darwinian account of living things, including hundreds of species of plants and vivid descriptions of wildlife. It is thoroughly annotated, focusing on the contemporary identification of species, as the result of a pan-Canadian collaboration of experts in fields from linguistics to biology and botany. The Codex Canadensis, currently in the collection of the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is reproduced in full and provides both a fascinating visual account of wildlife as Nicolas saw it and a rare example of early Canadian art. Gagnon's introduction profiles Louis Nicolas and analyses connections between his work and European examples of natural illustration from the period. The Codex Canadensis and the Writings of Louis Nicolas shows how the wildlife and native inhabitants of the new world were understood and documented by a seventeenth-century European and makes available fundamental documents in the history and visual culture of early North America
