Georgia O'Keeffe : American and modern by Charles C Eldredge( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georgia O'Keeffe has become a legend in modern western culture. As an artist, she was able to garner and sustain the attention of the public and critics alike for well over six decades. Though O'Keeffe is particularly known for her canvases of large flowers and of bones and skulls, her oeuvre is far more extensive. Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern accompanies the first international retrospective of one of the most loved American artists. Charles C. Eldredge explores two qualities of the artist's work - the American and the modern - suggesting that they were the leading impulses for her extraordinary vision. Beginning with a discussion of O'Keeffe as an American artist, Eldredge describes the openly nationalistic billing that the photographer and art impresario Alfred Stieglitz, who later became her husband, gave to her one-woman exhibition in New York in 1923. Even in O'Keeffe's earliest works, her penchant for abstraction is evident. Eldredge also examines the artist's later preoccupation with common subjects such as barns, which reflected her desire to paint "something I know." He highlights these subjects as a mark of her modernism - her ability to borrow from the pedestrian world as a vehicle for transcendence. For the first half of the twentieth century, O'Keeffe was the preeminent woman artist of the United States. Eldredge explores this circumstance as well, discussing the psychoanalytic speculation surrounding the element of sexuality in the artist's drawings and paintings. In particular, her flower paintings grabbed the attention of the critics, who were quick to interpret them with the help of the increasingly popular Freudian theory. Despite the inclination to discuss O'Keeffe's art as feminine self-revelation, critics discovered that it transcended easy categorization. As Eldredge points out, her style and choice of subjects evolved from a variety of influences, not the least of which were the photographic techniques she adopted from Stieglitz. Other influences include the immensity of the American West, a profound commitment to nativism and modernism, and a true respect for American culture. As O'Keeffe's work suggests, her life was infused with a spirit reflecting a new outlook, a new approach that was wholly modern - and distinctly American. Eldredge further illuminates the artist's career with a chronology of her life, which is illustrated with photographs - portraits and snapshots - many of them unpublished, and drawn from O'Keeffe's personal archive and from those of renowned photographers. The chronology creates a historical and biographical context for O'Keeffe's career, emphasizing the maturity and talent of the artist, as well as the scope of her acquaintances and travels. This book, which reproduces more than eighty of O'Keeffe's paintings and drawings, and includes extended discussion of many of them, serves as the catalogue for the exhibition "Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern," shown at the Hayward Gallery, London; El Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City; and the Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama in 1993 and 1994

The responsive eye : Ralph T. Coe and the collecting of American Indian art by Ralph T Coe( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past three decades, Ralph T. Coe has traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada to assemble this collection of Native American art, one of the finest in private hands today. Immersed in the cultures of Native America, he has come to know artists and artisans, traders, dealers, and shop proprietors, selecting the very best they have to offer. The Ralph T. Coe Collection includes representative pieces from most Native American geographic regions and historical periods, beginning with objects dating back to the fourth millennium B.C. Many examples{u2014}men's shirts with ermine fringe, weapons, and button blankets{u2014}evoke the heroic lifestyle of the past, while small objects, such as tipi and kayak models, dolls, and tiny moccasins, speak to a more intimate significance. Ritual objects imbued with spiritual meaning{u2014}masks and katsinas, tablitas and medicine bundles{u2014}as well as utilitarian objects, such as pottery and baskets, also have a strong presence. This catalogue tells the stories of nearly two hundred of these objects, combining art history with personal reminiscence, and reveals the role Coe has played in bringing about awareness of the artistic heritage of Native America.-- Metropolitan Museum of Art website

Intérieurs romantiques aquarelles, 1820-1890, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York, Donation Eugene V. et Clare E. Thaw : [exposition, Paris], Musée de la vie romantique, 10 septembre 2012-13 janvier 2013( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le célèbre collectionneur Eugene V. Thaw a offert sa remarquable collection de quelque quatre-vingt-dix Vues d'intérieurs romantiques au Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York. Cet ensemble exceptionnel d'aquarelles invite à pénétrer dans l'intimité patricienne des intérieurs les plus raffinés du XIXe siècle. Dans toute l'Europe, en France, en Angleterre, en Allemagne ou en Autriche, jusqu'en Russie, s'impose un genre pictural très séduisant, celui de la "vue d'intérieur". Des gallerie italiennes aux retraites en Bavière, des halls à Brighton aux chambres avec vue sur la Neva, la société aime à recevoir dans ses appartements où rivalisent d'invention architectes et décorateurs à la mode. Elle commande alors, non sans fierté, des images aussi spectaculaires que variées, comme autant d'évocations sensibles du charme discret de la bourgeoisie. À travers ce panorama pluriel de l'art décoratif, dans ses multiples variations en vedute contemporaines, du premier néogothique jusqu'au Biedermeier le plus étudié, ce sont autant de boudoirs et bibliothèques, alcôves et petits cabinets, fumoirs ou jardins d'hiver, qui participent d'un nouvel art de vivre moderne, au confort chaleureux. Les plaisirs de la conversation, mais aussi de la musique de chambre, de la peinture comme de l'art épistolaire, animent des cercles polyglottes cultivés, où les milieux de la finance et du pouvoir épousent ceux des arts et des lettres."--Back cover

Bright lights in the Dark Ages : the Thaw collection of early medieval ornaments by Noël Adams( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bright Lights of the Dark Ages is a major new volume on early Medieval art. It features over two hundred stunning and extremely rare early medieval gold and precious stonework objects, including brooches, buckles, shields, clasps, spoons and other 'grave goods, ' that were interred as status symbols with their owners in burials mounds across Europe. The new societies of the early Medieval period which developed on the periphery of the great Roman Empire--Germanic barbarians in Western Europe, Sarmatian and later Alanic tribes around the Black Sea, and the eastern frontier cities bordering the Parthian Empire in Iran--were all shaped by interaction with the Roman Empire, and profoundly influenced by its material culture. Author Noël Adams surveys the magnificent pieces that were made to advertise power and wealth in these new 'barbarian' kingdoms which arose after the fall of the Roman Empire, and in doing so shows the dramatic and surprising relationship between these 'migration era' objects and later medieval art. In a volume full of wonderful images, highlights include Gothic and Visigothic imperial style brooches from modern-day Slovakia and Crimea, superb Gallo-Roman spoons and enamelled domed brooches and buckles from Northern Europe and Britain"
