Andrew Wyeth : autobiography by Andrew Wyeth ( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This comprehensive survey is a look back at six decades of paintings by America's favorite artist. With 138 reproductions, including many seminal paintings from both his Chadds Ford and Maine work, this is the crowning book of Andrew Wyeth's career. But what makes Andrew Wyeth: Autobiography truly extraordinary are Wyeth's comments about each painting--an "autobiography," told through conversations with Thomas Hoving--which offer fascinating, often unexpected facts about Wyeth's life and art

The origins of American photography : from daguerreotype to dry-plate, 1839-1885 by Keith F Davis ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this text, Keith F. Davis examines photography's social history and aesthetic development in an era of rapid national growth. He demonstrates how key themes and genres - including the business of daguerreian portraiture, the markets for Civil War images, and the art of Western landscape photography - reflected the concerns and values of nineteenth-century society. Photographers of this era expressed a new national consciousness while, at the same time, helping to shape it. They also explored the visual language of a radically new medium, laying the foundation for all of photography's subsequent history."--BOOK JACKET
John Steuart Curry : inventing the Middle West by Patricia A Junker ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Steuart Curry: Inventing the Middle West is the first comprehensive study in more than fifty years of this member of the great triumvirate of American Regionalists: Thomas Hart Benton, Curry, and Grant Wood. It revives the reputation of one of the most important and controversial artists of the first half of the twentieth century, whose paintings of farm life in his native Kansas (including baptisms and tornados), of the circus, of American history, and of the American scene in general were dramatically eclipsed by the ascendancy of abstract art and the New York School at midcentury
An American century of photography : from dry-plate to digital by Hallmark Photographic Collection ( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An American Century of Photography represents the first comprehensive study of this vast and important subject from the mid-1880s to the present. Lavishly illustrated, and printed to the highest technical standards in both tritone and color, this authoritative volume presents a significantly new perspective on the history of American photography that will be of interest to general audiences and scholars alike. Based largely on photography's own literature and supplemented with detailed source notes, this book emphasizes the relationships between individuals and aesthetic movements, and the intellectual and cultural climate in which artists work. Together, the images and text of this volume constitute both an introduction to, and an exploration of, the most vital age of American photography. This era began just over a century ago with the advent of the dry-plate and the hand camera; now, in the mid-1990s photography is in the midst of another revolution, one brought on by the impact of the computer. An American Century of Photography documents this remarkable evolution through a detailed discussion of leading photographers and the reproduction of a great variety of images, from such famous works as Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother to many that were previously little known or unpublished. The variety of this selection will greatly expand understanding of the complexities and riches of American photography. In addition, this volume takes a broad view of its subject by including important European artists who emigrated to the United States in the 1930s, such as Andre Kertesz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and others
Nancy Graves : excavations in print : a catalogue raisonné by Thomas Padon ( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Graves is unusually attuned to the phenomena of nature. A passionate interest in science led her to introduce unorthodox forms drawn from astronomy, botany, cartography, and zoology into her art. In the last decade, her intellectual pursuits have taken a more humanist course as she has recast world history into an enigmatic pictorial idiom. Graves has spoken of her desire to make art out of what she terms the "shards of art," and she has assembled a cache of images drawn from various disciplines, eras, and civilizations

Heartland : the photographs of Terry Evans by Keith F Davis ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The landscape and people of the American Midwest have captivated photographer Terry Evans (b. 1944) throughout her forty-year photographic career. Evans has a deep connection to her native region, which she has explored from a variety of visual and thematic perspectives. Heartland traces the evolution of Evans's vision, beginning in the early 1970s with her social documentary images of people in Kansas. She became a landscape photographer in 1978, focusing on the grasses, land, and skies of the prairie; this was followed by an aerial survey of the entire Great Plains, from Texas to Canada. She has also photographed Chicago from the air, an abandoned military site, small-town life in Kansas, and historical samples of prairie flora and fauna from Chicago's Field Museum. More recently, she has documented the steel industry in the Midwest and oil and gas drilling in North Dakota. This generously illustrated book examines all of these works, which together reveal the enduring beauty of the prairie landscape."--Publisher's website
