Stanley Spencer by Duncan Robinson ( Book )
17 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) was the most original British painter of his era. This catalogue celebrates the achievements of an artist who continued to explore and develop over five decades. By 1914, aged only twenty-two, Spencer had completed a series of important religious works set in the Thameside village of his childhood. He experienced the First World War as a loss of Eden, yet his art was opened to complexities unguessed at in his Cookham innocence. An essay by Patrick Wright focuses on Spencer in the 1920s, uncovering a new cultural milieu and pointing to hidden themes in the murals he painted for Burchclere Chapel. Timothy Hyman charts Spencer's work as a process of autobiographical revelation, tracing his transition from the monumental Christian idealism of Giotto to his confrontation with raw reality and sexual fantasy in the crisis years of the 1930s. Both essays locate Spencer alongside his contemporaries, such as Otto Dix, Max Beckmann and Diego Rivera. Reproducing a large selection of his finest works, including several that are little known, this book offers fresh perspectives based on current research and presents a ground-breaking survey of the artist

The Yale Center for British Art : a tribute to the genius of Louis I. Kahn by Duncan Robinson ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Throughout he draws our attention to the dual nature of the Center as both a public museum and a research institute, a concept well understood and beautifully articulated in Kahn's organization of the building around two interior courts. The Yale Center for British Art is a building that works equally well for research scholars, for third-graders on their first visit to a museum, and for seasoned art lovers. No more and no less than any great building, Robinson and Finn show us, the Center is a work of art in its own right

"Robert Lehman was a member of the first generation of American collectors to embrace what we call modern art. This volume catalogues 207 nineteenth- and twentieth-century European drawings that are now part of the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum. More than three-quarters of these drawings are French, but there are also sheets from Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and Great Britain. Most are from the nineteenth century, but Robert Lehman also acquired, in some cases from the artists themselves, a number of drawings made during his own lifetime."--BOOK JACKET
