Most widely held works by Cecilia Beaux
Cecilia Beaux : a modern painter in the gilded age by Alice A Carter ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cecilia Beaux (1855-1942) is widely regarded as one of the leading women artists working in America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Author Alice A. Carter expertly traces Cecilia Beaux's fascinating and unconventional life, from her proscribed Philadelphia childhood through her triumphant entry into the male-dominated inner circle of the art world of Paris, Philadelphia, and New York." "Born in Philadelphia in 1855, Cecilia Beaux pursued an artistic career with the same zeal as her male peers, and by the turn of the century she had established an international reputation. She was acquainted with many of the eminent artists of her day, including Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, and John Singer Sargent. Carter reveals how Beaux's passion for her work combined with her headstrong spirit enabled her to achieve professional success unrivaled by any other female artist - and the personal price she paid for it." "This is the first illustrated biography of Beaux's work to showcase more than 130 illustrations, including her best-known high-style portrait commissions as well as landscape and still-life compositions."--BOOK JACKET

"This volume is the most comprehensive appraisal of Cecilia Beaux's talent in more than three decades.

The book accompanies a major exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta."--BOOK JACKET

This collection is a complete record of the museum's work, starting with the planning of the first loan exhibition in 1885 and ending with the cancellation of the International at the start of World War II in 1940. The museum's day-to-day relationships with all aspects of the contemporary art world are documented within the historical context of artists' reactions to World War I; the economic repercussions of the Great Depression on art sales and museum budgets; the ramifications of fascism on German, Italian, and European art; the impact of civil war on Spanish art; and the tensions introduced by the rise of 'radical' modernist art in Europe
