Most widely held works by Linda S Ferber
Masters of color and light : Homer, Sargent, and the American watercolor movement by Linda S Ferber ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Less often displayed than oils because of their sensitivity to light, watercolors nevertheless have enjoyed a lively, complex history. Illuminating well-known works as well as many that have never before been reproduced, Masters of Color and Light showcases an array of paintings that range far beyond watercolor's early reputation as the "lighter and daintier" medium
Albert Bierstadt : art & enterprise by Nancy K Anderson ( Book )
10 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bierstadt was the great recorder of the American western landscape. He was the first artist with both the technique and the talent to convey the powerful visual impact of western space and to capture the scale of America's mountains. This magnificent volume provides a full appreciation of his talent as an artist."--Amazon

Making American taste : narrative art for a new democracy by Barbara Dayer Gallati ( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Making American Taste features fifty-five works from the New-York Historical Society's collection that cast new light on both the history of American art and the formation of American cultural ideals during a crucial period from the 1830s to the late 1860s. By integrating history, literary and religious subjects with now better-known examples of rural and domestic genre, the exhibition explores the broad range of styles and narrative themes that appealed to nineteenth-century Americans seeking cultural refinement. The exhibition includes Louis Lang's The Return of the 69th (Irish) Regiment, 1862, a Civil War masterpiece rediscovered, as well as works by such canonical artists as Benjamin West, Asher B. Durand, William Sidney Mount and Eastman Johnson. Additionally, significant works by artists who were major figures in their own time, such as Daniel Huntington, Henry Peters Gray and T.H. Matteson, but who have been virtually ignored in current American art surveys, are also on exhibition. The reintegration of these "forgotten" works into the larger art-historical framework challenges the canon of current taste that has elevated genre to a privileged position at the expense of other narrative modes (including Stuart and Tudor, Shakespearean, and idealized subjects inspired by European masters). Together the works expand our understanding of the tastes of the nineteenth-century New Yorkers whose gifts formed the New-York Historical Society's core collections
