Most widely held works by Whitney Museum of American Art
The art of Richard Diebenkorn by Jane Livingston( )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, which accompanies the Whitney Museum's 1997 Diebenkorn retrospective exhibition, the most comprehensive survey of his work ever held, Diebenkorn emerges as an artist who restored to late modernism the sense of the sublime that seemed to fade with each successive decade after World War II. In the 1940s and early 1950s, he forged an impressive abstract vocabulary - and then suddenly abandoned it in 1955 for a representational mode that encompassed still lifes, landscapes, figures, and interiors. Along with painters David Park and Elmer Bischoff, he established what has come to be known as the Bay Area Figurative School

The American century : art & culture, 1900-1950 by Barbara Haskell( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers American art as a response to political, social, and economic conditions. It opens at the start of the century, when boundaries between high art and all that simmered beneath it were collapsing. In these pages, we are able to see the dramatic changes that characterized art in the first half of the century. We discover why the New York Armory Show of 1913 was such a shock to many artistic sensibilities; how Alfred Stieglitz and his circle drove photography toward modernism, a movement that would eventually include all the arts; and how the Depression (and the WPA) shaped a generation of artists, leaving a rich, public legacy in photography, painting, literature, and architecture. By the century's midpoint, the artistic output of this still young nation was astonishing."--Jacket
The flowering of American folk art, 1776-1876 by Jean Lipman( Book )

8 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 1,694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interest in American folk art has increased steadily over recent years and is more widespread today than ever before--yet the full scope of this tradition has never until now been published in a single volume or presented in a single exhibition. This comprehensive book illustrates more than 400 outstanding examples produced during the period of its finest flowering. The authors, selecting from more than 10,000 objects, have discussed and illustrated the works in four major categories: pictures, painted, drawn and stitched; sculpture; architectural decoration; decorated household objects. The extraordinary range and quality of American folk art are revealed by such diverse subjects as portraits, genre and religious scenes, ship figure-heads, weathervanes, toys, tinware, tavern signs, painted furniture, quilts, and works in many other categories. Though primitive or naïve in the sense they were fashioned by men or women who were primarily craftsmen or amateur artists rather than "fine" artists, these objects each possess an originality, a power and a beauty that place them in the mainstream of the American artistic tradition. In addition to the illustrations, more than 100 in color, there are brief essays on each type of object, detailed captions for each work, biographical notes on the artists, and a selected bibliography."--Publisher's description

The American century : art & culture, 1950-2000 by Lisa Phillips( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second half of the twentieth century has been a time of rapid change and accelerated cycles of creativity. In this volume, Lisa Phillips keeps pace with the dizzying energy of these decades by focusing on the avant-garde - the artists who propelled American art after World War II and who continually challenge our basic assumptions about what art is and what the role of the artist should be within the turbulent social atmosphere of twentieth-century America. Sidebar essays by a variety of experts in related fields highlight the broad cultural context - from rock 'n' roll to underground film to postmodern dance - in which vanguard American art flourished."--Jacket

This volume, which accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, is the first to focus exclusively on the exquisite landscape paintings and watercolors that Wyeth has been creating throughout his long career. Fluid, expressionistic, often breathtaking in their abstract beauty, these landscapes enable us to view Wyeth's work without the usual focus on narrative and anecdote. By revealing the art behind the story, they offer a fresh basis for understanding Wyeth's genius

Alice Neel by Alice Neel( Book )

"This volume accompanies a landmark exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art to celebrate the centennial of the artist's birth. It reviews the full range of Neel's paintings, from her early watercolors to the late work for which she finally achieved renown. Three essays, by Ann Temkin, Susan Rosenberg, and Richard Flood, examine Neel's indirect presence in her paintings, the roots of her work in the culture of the 1930s, and her portrayal of the contemporary art world. The transcript from a roundtable discussion among Neel's sitters and a richly illustrated chronology provide much new information on the artist's life and work."--Jacket

"The works in this volume are those exhibited in the Whitney Museum's American Pop Art survey -- the first major retrospective exhibit of this exhilarating contemporary art whose principal themes are taken from advertising, comic strips, motion pictures, and other forms of popular culture. The combination of Alloway's brilliant exposition and the one-hundred-and-five illustrations, ten in color, provides an illuminating experience, a visualization and understanding of this complex, exciting, typically American art movement."--Page 4 of cover
Shaker design by June Sprigg( Book )

8 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Shaker movement in America began in 1774 when Mother Ann Lee emigrated from Manchester, England, with a small group of followers, and settled in New York State. Despite impoverished beginnings, the Shakers flourished in the early nineteenth century, and by 1840 there were four to six thousand members living in eighteen principle communities from Maine to Kentucky. Turning away from society, they lived in large families that were both celibate and communal. In striving for heaven on earth, they created a visual environment of such harmony and quiet power that it continues to impress observers today, when the Shakers have all but passed from the American scene. The many works presented in this beautiful volume reveal the Shaker commitment to excellence in all matters. The chairs, cases of drawers, work stands, baskets, oval boxes, wheelbarrows, stoves, looms, and even tailoring tools have a purity of form that transcends mere utility and elevates our appreciation beyond a sense of function."--Amazon
