Grant Wood's studio : birthplace of American Gothic by Grant Wood( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Library Journal: In 1930, painter Grant Wood (1891-1942) created American Gothic, the iconic image of a stolid Midwestern couple complete with three-pronged pitchfork. The Art Institute of Chicago exhibited and purchased the piece, catapulting Wood to national acclaim as a regionalist. In conjunction with the opening of Wood's studio at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art in Iowa, guest curator Milosch (Smithsonian) presents a survey of Wood's artwork and four highly readable essays on the artist, his career, his connection to the Arts and Crafts movement, and his relationship to Modernism. Included is the bitter campaign against his carefully articulated and representational images and his alleged ties to National Socialism in Germany. Contributors include on-site curator Debra Foxley Leach and art historians Wanda M. Corn, James M. Dennis, and Joni L. Kinsey. Although many books on this artist have been published, especially those concentrating on the iconic painting, this book is recommended for libraries that need a broad and careful survey of Wood and his culture.-Ilene Skeen, Hunter Coll
Seeing Gertrude Stein : five stories by Wanda M Corn( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gertrude Stein is justly famous for her modernist writings and her patronage of vanguard painters (most notably Matisse and Picasso) in Paris before the First World War. This work is the companion book to an exhibition of the same name, illuminates less familiar aspects of her life. The authors analyze the portraits for which Stein posed, the domestic settings she created with Alice B. Toklas, her partner, and the signature styles of dress the two women adopted. The authors also explore Stein's engagement with multiple art forms and the bonds she formed with younger artists. Focusing on portraits in a range of media, photo essays, press clippings, snapshots, clothing, furniture, and other visual artifacts, this study reveals Stein's sophistication in shaping her public image and cultural legacy. Illustrated throughout, these "five stories" represent Stein's life on a human scale while tracing her influence on a wide variety of visual artists of her own and subsequent generations

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Taos, Mabel and her husband, Antonio "Tony" Lujan of Taos Pueblo, built an enclave that consisted of a seventeen-room "Big House" and five guesthouses. From 1918 through 1947, scores of visitors found her home and its environs an inspiring place where they could help to create a new national art and culture. In Taos, West coast luminaries crossed paths with East Coast movers and shakers. With Luhan as their guide, hostess, and impressario, these European and American talents found inspiration in the mesas, mountains, Hispano villages, and INdian pueblos of northern New Mexico. This book - copiously illustrated with works by major artists and drawing on extensive collections of archival and scholarly research - illuminates the regional, national, and international significance of Luhan's life and legacy." --Publisher

This fresh and carefully researched study brings O'Keeffe's style to life, illuminating how this beloved American artist purposefully proclaimed her modernity in the way she dressed and posed for photographers, from Alfred Stieglitz to Bruce Weber. This beautiful book accompanies the first museum exhibition to bring together photographs, clothes, and art to explore O'Keeffe's unified modernist aesthetic
