Velázquez in Seville by David Davies( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raphael to Renoir : drawings from the collection of Jean Bonna by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lovers of European drawing will take delight in this illustrated volume of 120 drawings that cover some 500 years of art history and represent a diversity of artistic schools in Italy, Northern Europe, France, and Great Britain. They were selected from the notable collection of Jean Bonna, of Geneva, Switzerland, and they highlight the rich quality and diversity of the Bonna Collection." "The drawings are as varied in their range of subject matter as they are in medium and artistic style, and they encompass fine examples by both major masters and less well-known artists. Narrative scenes, religious subjects, studies of the human figure, formal and informal portraits, animal and nature studies, landscapes, cityscapes, and seascapes predominate in the collection. Although many of the drawings in Jean Bonna's collection have previously been published and exhibited, the quality and scope of his holdings have not been explored so fully until this publication and the exhibition it accompanies." "The works from the Bonna Collection are illustrated in color, and whenever possible, at their actual sizes. They are arranged chronologically by the artist's date of birth and are grouped according to the main artistic schools. This volume is introduced by an interview with Jean Bonna by George Goldner. Each drawing is then described in an entry, many of which have comparative illustrations that shed further light on individual works."--BOOK JACKET

Christen Købke : Danish master of light by David Jackson( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christen Købke (1819-1848) was arguably the greatest painter of Denmark's Golden Age, the period of the nation's supreme artistic achievement. He had the remarkable ability to invest the simplest corner of town or countryside with charm and delicacy, without resorting to the artificial rhetoric of academic traditions. He endowed ordinary people and places, and simple motifs, with a universal significance; a world in microcosm. This beautiful book, written by leading scholars of Scandinavian art, offers an overview of Købke's achievement within its cultural context, and also highlights the most innovative aspects of his work, including outdoor sketching, his fascination with painterly immediacy in the treatment of light and atmosphere, his exquisite originality, and his experimental outlook."--Publisher's description

Rubens drawing on Italy by Jeremy Wood( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Paul Rubens was one of the most inventive and prolific artists in the history of western art. After his early training in Antwerp, Rubens spent formative periods in Italy between 1600 and 1608. This book explores the ways in which Rubens studied, copied, and adapted the work of artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian. A large group of drawings by Italian artists, many of which were owned by Rubens and extensively transformed by him, are illustrated. These works show how Rubens's dialogue with Italian art went far beyond mere imitation and how his copies and adaptations attracted the attention of scholars and collectors from his lifetime onwards."--Jacket

Rembrandt's women by Julia Lloyd Williams( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on Rembrandt's portrayal of women, this work accompanies a major exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London. It examines the women in Rembrandt's life, as well as his unique approach to depicting the female form in paintings, drawings and prints. The book features 140 works drawn from the finest collections in the world - sketches of women employed in household chores, mothers with babies and toddlers, paintings of smiling servant girls and wizened old women, studies of the female nude, pictures of goddesses and historical heroines, and his little-known erotic prints. It traces how mother, wife, mistress, maid and models appear in compositions, and followed how, throughout his life, Rembrandt combined classical and northern traditions, the personal and universal, with an extraordinary breadth of vision in his depiction of womankind. The essays by major Rembrandt scholars discuss the painter's biography in relation to the portrayal of the women in his household; the social position of women in Rembrandt's time; the artistic context of Rembrandt's nudes; the identity of the women who modelled for artists in 17th-century Holland; the significance of costume and jewellery in Rembrandt's images; eroticism in Rembrandt's works; and responses to Rembrandt's portrayal of women of later artists through the 18th and 19th centuries up to Picasso
