William Scott by Norbert Lynton( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Scotland in 1913, William Scott was raised in Northern Ireland, the oldest boy in a family of eleven children. He trained at the Belfast College of Art and the Royal Academy Schools in London, and first came to the public's attention when he participated in the Art Council's exhibition at the 1951 Festival of Britain. In 1953 he visited Rothko, Pollock, de Kooning and others in New York, and began to exhibit there regularly." "His work ranges from abstract paintings to ever-richer still lifes with multiple levels of meaning. This lavish volume includes work from all periods - most reproduced in full colour - introduced and assessed by the art historian Norbert Lynton, who has been given completely free access to Scott's private archive by the William Scott Estate. His account of William Scott and Scott's art is rooted in personal knowledge of the artist and the art world he inhabited, and has involved first-hand contact with his work around the world and research in the Scott Archives, as well as consideration of the artistic currents operating in western art during his time."--BOOK JACKET

Staking out the territory : and other writings on music by Hugh Wood( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since his early days, Hugh Wood has pursued a triple career as composer, teacher and writer: he has added to the repertory of orchestral, chamber and vocal music, he has lectured at the Universities of Glasgow, Liverpool and Cambridge, and he has been involved in an endless round of articles, reviews and broadcasts. What these activities have in common is a keen interest in the highways and byways of European culture, a fastidious style, and a determination to scotch pretence wherever it appears. But behind all this lies another concern, an insatiable quest for knowledge of the territory composers stake out for themselves. This selection of writings is in three parts and shows three aspects to the quest. The first addresses his own experience; the second maps out the historical and cultural context for a number of orchestral and chamber works in a set of concert essays; and the third draws together several composer-vignettes from his recent reviews for the Times Literary Supplement. The book marks his seventy-fifth birthday and includes eight works by his favourite painter, the British artist William Scott
