Matisse, his art and his textiles : the fabric of dreams by Henri Matisse( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Textiles were the key to Matisse's visual imagination. His ancestors had been weavers for generations: the textures and vibrancy of cloth were in his blood. Although Matisse was to outgrow every other influence, textiles retained their power to inspire his imagination throughout his life. His studio in Nice was a treasure house of exotic Persian carpets, delicate Arab embroideries, richly hued African wall hangings, curtains, costumes, patterned screens and backcloths. This sumptuously illustrated book, which includes over 100 works by Matisse together with numerous colourful fabrics, is the catalogue of a groundbreaking exhibition at the Musée Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambrésis; the Royal Academy of Arts, London; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Matisse's relationship with the textiles that surrounded him from his earliest days is revealed here for the first time. Charting how the fabrics he painted from became the very fabric of his paintings, the authors examine the ways in which Matisse used what he called his "working library" of textiles to furnish, order and compose some of the twentieth century's most pioneering works of art

Renoir's women by Ann Dumas( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking as its starting point two very different but equally engaging female portraits, which Renoir painted twenty years apart - Madame Henriot en travesti, a portrait of the Parisian actress dressed as a pageboy, and Christine Lerolle Embroidering, showing the daughter of Renoir's friend the painter Henry Lerolle in a scene from her everyday life - Renoir's Women brings to life the major themes of Renoir's captivating pictures of women with enlightening text and over eighty beautiful illustrations, including some of the most perceptive and intimate portrayals of women ever painted."--Jacket

Cézanne in Britain by Paul Cézanne( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) was one of the most influential and well-loved artists of all time. He was a key figure in the great debate about Modernism that took place in Britain in the early years of the twentieth century, and a stylistic innovator who constantly struggled to perfect his art. Yet, during his lifetime, Cezanne remained virtually unknown in this country, and as recently as 1964 the National Gallery's purchase of the most important Cezanne in Britain - Bathers - was denounced in the press as a public outrage." "Today, more than 80 of Cezanne's works remain in British collections, public and private, and over half of these pictures, covering the full range of his oeuvre - paintings, drawings, watercolours and prints - are reproduced here, tracing the artist's development from the 1860s until his death."--Jacket
Degas and America : the early collectors by Ann Dumas( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Degas and America: The Early Collectors is organized by Ann Dumas and David Brenneman. The catalogue includes several illustrated essays. Ann Dumas details the early awareness of Degas in America ... the first exhibitions and purchases, the movement of works around the country, the first collectors, the development of the American taste for the Frenchman's art. Rebecca Rabinow writes of Louisine Havemeyer, the first great American collector of Degas, who was led by her friend Mary Cassatt to begin amassing a collection that was bequeathed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. David Brenneman surveys the critical response to first appearances of art by Degas in the United States, noting the generally warm acceptance and admiring attention earned by Degas. Richard Kendall contributes an essay on the impact of Degas's art and sensibility upon American artists, especially painters of the Ashcan generation and members of The Eight. Valerie Fletcher writes a short overview of the problematic subject of Degas's sculpture; almost none of the sculpture was intended for public viewing, yet it was warmly embraced by American collectors and museums, whose holdings now form the best representation of Degas's work in this medium."--Jacket
Madame Cézanne by Dita Amory( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Cézanne's (1839-1906) portraits of Hortense Fiquet (1850-1922), his wife and the subject of some of his most iconic portraits, rank among the most powerful of their kind in French modernism. Yet, posterity has not been kind to Madame Cézanne. She was called a distraction, blamed for her husband's "lackluster" landscapes, and disdained for her impenetrable expression in the paintings. The reality is more complex, for while Fiquet may not have been the passion of Cézanne's lifetime, she was a willing accomplice, as model, mother of his only son, and unwavering partner against all odds. Madame Cézanne examines this unique relationship within the context of Cézanne as a painter, draftsman, and portraitist, and sheds light on the personal relationship between artist and muse. Featuring all 28 of Cézanne's oil portraits of Fiquet and most of the known drawings, Madame Cézanne both corrects, with insight and compassion, the long-held misconceptions about the Cézannes' unconventional marriage, and shows how Cézanne's portraits of his wife provide a lens through which to better understand his overall technique"--Publisher's website
Edgar Degas : the last landscapes by Ann Dumas( Book )

Painting the modern garden : Monet to Matisse by Monty Don( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While depictions of gardens are found throughout history, the impressionists were among the first to portray gardens directly from life, focusing on their color and form rather than using them as a background. This volume explores the close, symbiotic relationship between artists and gardens that developed during the latter part of the 19th and first part of the 20th centuries, centering on Monet, a great horticulturalist as well as a great artist who cultivated gardens wherever he lived, and the creation of his masterpiece garden at Giverny, where he painted his renowned water-lilies series. Beautifully illustrated with masterpieces by Monet and later painters--Renoir, Bonnard, Sargent, Klee, Kandinsky, and Matisse, among others--Painting the Modern Garden traces the evolution of the garden theme from impressionist visions of light and atmosphere to retreats for reverie, sites for bold experimentation, sanctuaries, and, ultimately, signifiers of a world restored to order--a paradise regained."--Publisher's description

Revolution : Russian art 1917-1932 by John Milner( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revolution: Russian Art, 1917-1932' encapsulates a momentous period in Russian history that is vividly expressed in the diversity of art produced between 1917, the year of the October Revolution, and 1932 when Stalin began to suppress the avant-garde and its debates. Based around the great exhibition of 1932 held at the State Russian Museum in Leningrad, the book explores the fascinating themes and artistic developments of the first fifteen years of the Soviet state, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, posters, graphics and film. The exhibition itself was to be the swansong of avant-garde art in Russia: new policies quickly ensured that Socialist Realism - collective in production, public in manifestation and Communist in ideology - was to become the only acceptable art form. This volume is a timely and authoritative exploration of how modern art in all its forms flourished, was recognised, celebrated, and broken by implacable authority all within fifteen years
