Albert Moore by Robyn Asleson ( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Surveying the whole of Moore's career and drawing on unpublished materials, Robyn Asleson throws a flood of new light on the artist and his work. She presents new evidence to debunk the myth of his hermit-like existence, re-examines his notorious exclusion from Royal Academy membership, and documents his close relationship with Whistler, demonstrating that Moore's influence on his older and more famous friend was far greater than has hitherto been assumed. Moore emerges as the most radical exponent of English Aestheticism, a passionate and audacious crusader for abstract beauty who anticipated the aesthetic concerns of twentieth-century Modernism."--Jacket

A passion for performance : Sarah Siddons and her portraitists by Shelley M Bennett ( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Renowned for her majestic beauty and impassioned performances, the English actress Sarah Siddons (1755-1831) revolutionized the aesthetics of eighteenth century theater while inventing a complex public persona to promote her fame. Her flair for self-presentation was matched by the showmanship of the many artists who portrayed her." "The three lively essays in this volume - by Robyn Asleson, Shelley Bennett and Mark Leonard, and Shearer West - explore Siddons's life and career, as well as her complex relationships with a number of artists."--BOOK JACKET
Notorious muse : the actress in British art and culture, 1776-1812 by Robyn Asleson ( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As these essays demonstrate, the cultural and social position of the British actress was in transition at this period. The growing professionalism of the female performer, along with her greater social mobility, financial sufficiency, and creative autonomy, began to supplant - though not entirely erase - her time-honoured reputation as a sexual object."--BOOK JACKET
