Andrew Wyeth : autobiography by Andrew Wyeth ( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 1,243 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
Winslow Homer and the critics : forging a national art in the 1870s by Margaret C Conrads ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Winslow Homer's luminous watercolor seascapes and highly spirited portraits of children and outdoorsmen are some of the most recognizable and cherished works in the history of American art. This catalogue, published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition, examines his pictures from the 1870s, the least-studied period of this perennially popular American artist. Debunking the common myth that Homer worked in isolation, Margaret Conrads reveals him as a controversial artist who was an integral part of the dizzying New York art scene of the 1870s. Indeed, Homer was the American artist most frequently discussed by the press at this time - often with simultaneous commendation and vilification." "By viewing Homer's works of the 1870s through the lens of contemporaneous criticism, the author explains how and why the painter embodied the critics' high hopes for an art that expressed national values. She finds reflected in his vivid images an ongoing struggle to meet these expectations, even as he challenged and helped to redefine the artistic conventions governing American aesthetics." "This handsome volume is a remarkable record of an important period not only in Winslow Homer's career but also in the fascinating art world of late-nineteenth-century America."--BOOK JACKET
John Steuart Curry : inventing the Middle West by Patricia A Junker ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 695 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

Marsden Hartley by Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) was a painter, poet, writer, and pioneer of American modernism. Born in Lewiston, Maine, he lived a peripatetic life, working in Paris, Berlin, New York, Mexico, New Mexico, Bermuda, and elsewhere before returning to Maine in 1934. This superbly illustrated book encompasses the extraordinary range and depth of Hartley's creative output. Some one-hundred and five of his works - landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and abstract paintings - demonstrate the visual power for which Hartley gained acclaim as well as the development of his art over the course of his thirty-five year career." "The book gathers together the most recent scholarship on Hartley's work, discussing such topics as the artist's working methods, his self-portraits, the influence of Cezanne on his work, and Hartley's attitudes toward Native Americans. A chronology of his life is included, and each painting is accompanied by a full catalogue entry." "This book also serves as the catalogue of an exhibition organized by the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art and traveling to the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City."--BOOK JACKET
