Gerrit Dou, 1613-1675 : master painter in the age of Rembrandt by Ronni Baer( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gerrit Dou, Rembrandt's first pupil, was lauded at an early age by his contemporaries as a model for other painters. His works, sought by collectors throughout Europe, fetched extremely high prices well into the eighteenth century. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, Dou's reputation had fallen into eclipse, and the works of a master whose fame had once equaled that of Rembrandt appeared only rarely, if at all, in exhibitions of Dutch art. In the last thirty years scholars have begun to reevaluate the artistic achievement of Gerrit Dou. This book, which accompanies the first international exhibition devoted exclusively to Dou's works, provides an opportunity to reassess the artist's achievements."--Jacket

Winslow Homer : poet of the sea by Winslow Homer( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Organised by geographic location, this book reveals Homer's keen ability to capture the quintessence of nature, from the raw coast of Maine to the balmy shores of the Caribbean, through his remarkable capacity to adapt materials and techniques to the locale. The works assembled simultaneously capture the unique landscape of their geographic settings, issues of pictorial representation in general, and the universality of man's relationship to the sea." "Through a series of essays by distinguished European and American scholars, Winslow Homer: Poet of the Sea offers a fresh exploration of the American master and his life-long proccupation with the sea"--Book jacket
Canaletto in England : a Venetian artist abroad, 1746-1755 by Charles Beddington( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The golden age of watercolours : the Hickman Bacon collection by Eric Shanes( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Watercolour flourished as an artistic medium in late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century England. Its transparency afforded both rich colour and exact tonal control, while its portability, speed of drying and relative technical ease permitted direct contact with nature, as well as great expressivity. The spontaneity of watercolour made it the perfect medium for capturing the fleeting light and weather effects of Britain, and, because of it, there arose a group of painters who put English art on the global cultural map." "These 'Golden Age' watercolourists included John Robert Cozens, Thomas Girtin, J.M.W. Turner, John Sell Cotman, David Cox and Peter de Wint. Cozens expanded the spatial breadth and character of landscape images, influencing both Girtin and Turner. Turner used watercolour to search for future images, producing a body of work that prefigures abstract painting. For Cotman, watercolour permitted a highly lucid method of representing reality, while it allowed Cox great expressiveness and de Wint the ability to find his imagery within the very act of painting itself. Such later artists as Louis Francia, Richard Parkes Bonington, Thomas Shotter Boys, William James Miller and John Frederick Lewis equally employed watercolour in the most virtuosic ways possible."--BOOK JACKET
Italy in the age of Turner : "the garden of the world" by Cecilia Powell( Book )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Murillo : scenes of childhood by Xanthe Brooke( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here, for the first time Murillo's pictures of childhood are collected together, demonstrating how the artist's own experiences as a member of the Brotherhood of Charity, which distributed bread to the starving of Seville, invested his paintings of street children with first-hand knowledge of their lives and genuine compassion for their plight. The Catholic Church promoted the notion that the rich needed the poor in order to be able to perform acts of charity for them and thus attain grace. The crop failures of the 1670s and the resultant famine made the middle and upper classes of the city more conscious than ever of its vast population of the dispossessed. Murillo's paintings often feature apparently well-nourished though grubby children relishing fruits and tarts: part of his artistic mission was to encourage acts of charity towards the poor, and the sympathy and affection that his paintings are intended to provoke in the viewer are often designed to assist this aim."--Jacket
William Beckford, 1760-1844 : an eye for the magnificent ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Piper in the 1930s : abstraction on the beach by David Fraser Jenkins( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John Piper was one of the leading Modernist artists of the twentieth century whose work was not only at the forefront of artistic developments but also appealed directly to a wide public. Marking the centenary of Piper's birth in 1903, this book dramatically uncovers the various shifts in his early career while working largely on the south coast of England, from a lyrical, painterly style and lively use of collage, inspired by Picasso and Braque, into pure abstraction, in keeping with International Modernism. The second half of the 1930s saw the order and harmony of Piper's work unsettled by the onset of war, and with it a return to representation in an attempt to find a contemporary idiom with which to express his romantic love of the past. The tension between abstraction and realism in Piper's work of the period is engagingly told and stunningly illustrated in this, the first in-depth exploration of the artist's formative years."--BOOK JACKET
Graham Sutherland : landscapes, war scenes, portraits, 1924-1950 by Graham Vivian Sutherland( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book revisits a major figure from a somewhat neglected generation which dominated the British art scene in the 1930s and 1940s. Focusing on the period from the mid-1930s - when Sutherland established his identity as a modern painter - to the 1950s, when his influence began to wane, it portrays the types of work that gave rise to a widespread consensus amongst fellow artists and critics that Sutherland was the most exciting and compelling voice in contemporary British painting." "This long-overdue and much-requested exhibition and accompanying catalogue (there has not been a substantial Sutherland show in London since 1982) comprises 85 oils and works on paper drawn from public and private collections throughout the UK, and offers a selective interpretation of his painting rather than the usual career retrospective."--BOOK JACKET

Painting Canada : Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven by Tom Thomson( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In early twentieth-century Toronto, Canada, the first stirrings of a new movement of painting were being felt. A group of artists started to engage with the awesome Canadian wilderness, a landscape previously considered too wild and untamed to inspire true art. Leading the way was Tom Thomson. In little more than three years of electrifying creativity before his premature death in 1917 he formulated an artistic language that captured the unique qualities of the Canadian landscape. Three years later his friends--Lawren Harris, J.E.H. MacDonald, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael and A.Y. Jackson--formed the Group of Seven. They built on Thomson's legacy to produce a landscape style that to this day influences the way Canadians visualise their country, and their paintings are national icons in Canada. This book tells of the Group's collective quest to depict Canada in paint. It recounts their beginnings, the challenges they faced and the remarkable and often extreme journeys they undertook in search of new subject matter. Essays explore the artists' relationship with the Arctic north, and analyse Thomson's art through the prism of the prevalent scientific theories of the day. A fresh, European perspective on these Canadians is offered in essays exploring their links with Scandinavian art and European expressionism. Beautifully illustrated with over 120 colour reproductions of their work, and maps indicating the geographical range covered by this selection of paintings, this book offers an insight into the history of this important--yet little-known in Europe--artistic movement."--Publisher's website

Hockney, printmaker by David Hockney( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1954, a 16-year-old student at the Bradford College of Art opted to study lithography as part of the National Diploma in Design. His first effort, a small self-portrait printed only in a handful of impressions, marks the beginning of one of the longest and most diverse careers in modern printmaking. By turns traditional and groundbaking, over six decades David Hockney has created graphic works of great wit, beauty of great wit, beauty and intellectual complexity. This book features over 150 works, from etchings executed at the Royal College of Art in the 1960s, to experiments with printed computer drawings some 50 years later, via portraits, pools, poetry, Xeroxes and investigations into a multi-point perspective
