Most widely held works by Eric Zafran
Fantasy and faith : the art of Gustave Doré( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Hebrew and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the second half of the nineteenth century, Gustave Dore (1832-1883) was one of the world's most famous artists. This illustrated book situates Dore in the context of French nineteenth-century art, focuses on his major works, and assesses his impact on North American collectors and museums."--Jacket

Renaissance to Rococo : masterpieces from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Wadsworth Atheneum opened in 1844 as the first public gallery of fine arts in America, the highlights of the collection were works by contemporary American artists. However, gifts soon brought a number of old master paintings to the museum, and today perhaps the most famous aspect of its European collection is the concentration of Italian Baroque masterpieces." "The museum's distinguished director in the 1930s and 1940s, Chick Austin, acquired notable works by Strozzi, Luca Giordano, Claude, and the first authentic Caravaggio in an American museum. Today the Atheneum can present an exhibition beginning with such renaissance masters as Piero di Cosimo and Sebastiano del Piombo, continuing with the finest examples of Baroque painting, and culminating in a blaze of rococo splendor with Tiepolo, Canaletto, Guardi, Melendez, Greuze, and Goya. This catalogue includes a history of the collection by Eric Zafran and entries on the individual paintings by distinguished scholars."--Jacket
Surrealism and modernism : from the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum by Eric Zafran( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many of the works - in particular the museum's Surrealist paintings - were bought directly from the artists or from their very first exhibitions. The famed Chick Austin, director of the Atheneum from 1929 to 1944, mounted the first Surrealist exhibition in America in 1931 and proceeded to buy a work by the then relatively little known Salvador Dali. Examples by de Chirco, Cornell, Matta, Calder, and Ernst soon followed. Later, when painters such as Tanguy and his wife, Kay Sage, settled in Connecticut, they became friends with Austin, and works by them and owned by them, such as an admirable painting by Magritte, eventually came to the Atheneum. In 1934 the museum presented the first great American retrospective of Picasso, and Austin was able to buy one small neo-classical example, which over the years has been supplemented by four other Picasso paintings. Austin's successor purchased works by Stanley Spencer, Henry Moore, Maillol, and Marini. In More recent years, examples of American modernists and expressionists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Arthur Dove, Willem de Kooning, and Jackson Pollock have entered the collection to provide a broad overview of artistic trends of the last century."--Jacket

Fifty old master paintings from the Walters Art Gallery by Md.) Walters Art Gallery (Baltimore( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The holdings in the old master painting collection were developed almost entirely by Henry Walters, although they have been supplemented in recent years by superb gifts and excellent, if infrequent, purchases. The core of Renaissance and Baroque paintings came with the purchase in 1902 of 1500 works from Rome's Massarenti collection. This massive acquisition inspired Henry Walters to build the great Renaissance Revival structure whose restoration and return to the public was completed in 1988. - Preface
