William M. Harnett by William Michael Harnett ( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his short but productive career, William Michael Harnett (1848-1892) became the great American master of trompe-l'oeil still-life painting. His works, popular with the public long before they were appreciated by the art critics, "fool the eye" with their convincing, sharp-edged definition of form and careful rendering of materials. This volume provides the first thorough examination of Harnett's career and its significance for the history of American art. Twenty-two essays by a roster of leading scholars examine three major areas: Harnett's relationship to his contemporaries, among them painters, patrons, critics, and the general public; his formative training and experiences; and the meaning of his themes for the audience that supported him. These essays discuss not only Harnett's own technical skill and artistic development, but also the aesthetic issues of illusionism and trompe l'oeil, Harnett's relationship to other painters working in a similar vein, and the implications of his subject matter. Ultimately, the essays help to resolve the question of how Harnett's technically skillful imitations of real objects fit the definition of "art" and what his popularity says about the culture in which he worked and lived. Each of the editors has written an essay for this volume; other contributors include Henry Adams, Maria Chamberlin-Hellman, Nicolai Cikovsky, Jr., Elizabeth Jane Connell, William H. Gerdts, Elizabeth Johns, Judy L. Larson, David M. Lubin, Chad Mandeles, Roxana Robinson, and Paul J. Staiti. The forty-nine works reproduced in full color and arranged chronologically provide the first comprehensive survey of Harnett's work. A bibliography, chronology, and thorough index add to the reference value of this handsome volume

Richard Estes by Richard Estes ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Richard Estes, the American "king of photorealism," is regarded as one of the most important witnesses to the New York urban landscape. The crisp, clarity of Estes' paintings is reminiscent of photography, yet upon closer inspection his work reveals elements and perspectives that do not exist in reality. Like the artist Red Grooms, he is a true New York artist; Estes views the shop windows and street signs as his subjects, and gives his own unique perspective of city life. His hyper-crisp, people-less streetscapes have more to do with minimalism and realism than with traditional landscape painting. The book illustrates his fifty years of work and includes many recently completed paintings, published here for the first time. Author John Wilmerding is one of the most respected and widely known authorities on American art, and he takes a fresh look at this significant realist painter. The text covers the artist's themes and techniques and the inspiration of other artists such as Vermeer, Canaletto, Frederic Church, Edward Hopper, and Walker Evans. This book encompasses Estes' entire oeuvre and is an essential resource for all collectors of his work.--Book jacket

As Wilmerding states, "Part of the island's continuing allure is that a fixed point of geography can inspire such diverse visual responses and stylistic treatments as the romantic realism of the early Hudson River painters, the crystalline luminism of artists in the middle of the nineteenth century, the variants of impressionism practiced at century's end, and the new modes of representation in the twentieth, approaching aspects of abstraction."
