Winslow Homer by Nicolai Cikovsky ( Book )
11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book discusses and reproduces more than two hundred paintings, watercolors, and drawings that span Homer's career, all of which are discussed in entries by Cikovsky and Kelly. It begins with the Civil War paintings that first brought Homer's remarkable artistic mentality to public attention, in which he movingly expressed the profound implications the war held for the nation. Homer's interest in national themes is further explored in his works of the later 1860s and 1870s, which embraced a wide spectrum of American life. His shift toward more idealized and heroic imagery and his withdrawal to a solitary life at Prout's Neck, Maine, in the 1880s are discussed as turning points leading to the great achievements of his last two decades. After considering his beautiful late watercolors of the Tropics and the Adirondacks, and his monumental Prout's Neck seascapes, the book concludes with a reassessment of the tragic, almost visionary paintings of his last years. The book is also the catalogue for a major exhibition on Homer's works, opening at the National Gallery of Art on 15 October 1995 and traveling to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Hudson River School visions : the landscapes of Sanford R. Gifford by Sanford Robinson Gifford ( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sanford Gifford (1823-1880), a leading Hudson River School landscape painter and a founder of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, was so esteemed by the New York art world that, at his untimely death, the Museum mounted a show of his work - the first monographic exhibition accorded any artist - and published a Memorial Catalogue that, for nearly a century, remained the principal source on his oeuvre." "Gifford's art, which was inspired by the work of Thomas Cole, the founder of the Hudson River School, and by that of J. M. W. Turner, and enriched by his travels in Europe (from 1855 to 1857, and from 1868 to 1869), came to be called "air painting," for he made the ambient light of each scene - color saturated and atmospherically potent - the key to its expression. His approach to painting and his unique style gave rise to a highly distinctive body of work, of enchanting and mesmerizing effect. While Gifford himself compiled a "List of Chief Pictures" late in his career, a significant part of his extant oeuvre consists of small-scale studies, preparatory works in oil, and original drawings, most of which are in annotated sketchbooks and document the progression from on-site record to idealized vision achieved in his major pictures."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Spanning the entirety of Hopper's career, but with particular emphasis on his heyday in the twenties, thirties, and forties, Edward Hopper highlights his greatest achievements while discussing such topics as his absorption of European influences, critical reactions to his work, the relation of realism to modernism, his fascination with architecture, his depiction of women, and the struggle in his last years to produce original works. Illustrated with more than 150 of his oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, and including essays by several noted scholars in the field and an extensive chronology and bibliography, this is the most comprehensive volume on Hopper to be published in many years."--BOOK JACKET
