Most widely held works by Philip Conisbee
Portraits by Ingres : image of an epoch by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres( Book )

18 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Portraits by Ingres: Image of an Epoch, published in conjunction with an exhibition at The National Gallery, London, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, is the first comprehensive study of these nineteenth-century masterpieces." "This volume unites texts by American and European scholars with the most complete visual presentation ever of Ingres's portraits. The biographical essays and the catalogue entries provide fresh insights based on examination and interpretation of original correspondence, contemporary reviews, and newly discovered documents; supplementing these are an introduction that discusses Ingres's sources of inspiration, essays on the critical reception of the portraits and on the artist's use of assistants, and a detailed illustrated chronology."--Jacket
Georges de La Tour and his world by Philip Conisbee( Book )

18 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georges de La Tour (1593-1652) was one of the greatest French painters of the seventeenth century, but his art was rapidly forgotten after his death and has been rediscovered only in our own century. Since the major retrospective exhibition held in Paris in 1972, previously unknown paintings have continued to come to light, such as Saint John the Baptist in the Wilderness, a moving late work discovered in 1994. The exhibition celebrated by this beautiful book presents this and other new additions to La Tour's oeuvre and locates his art in the wider European context of his time

Cézanne in Provence by Philip Conisbee( Book )

38 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published on the centenary of the death of Paul Cézanne (18391906), this stunning book celebrates the artist's depictions of his native Provence. While Cézanne is recognized as one of the fathers of the modern movement, this publication focuses on his own sense of achievement, especially as a painter exploring the landscape in and around his hometown of Aix-en- Provence. Although he spent time elsewhere in France, especially Paris, Cézanne repeatedly returned to Provence, where he lived nearly all of the last twenty years of his life. In studios at the Jas de Bouffan and at Les Lauves, and on painting expeditions into the surrounding countryside, Cézanne created some of his most original and compelling works, not only landscapes but also portraits of local characters, friends, and family; still lifes, and imaginative figure paintings, such as the monumental bathers painted in the last decade of his life. Beautifully illustrated with some 160 paintings and watercolors, Cézanne in Provence offers fascinating insights into a true genius in the history of art and his beloved native countryside
