Most widely held works by Jane Munro
Endless forms : Charles Darwin, natural science and the visual arts by Yale Center for British Art( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated book is the first to explore Darwin's links with artistic traditions and his impact on the visual arts in Europe and America in the nineteenth century. Bringing together art and science in a completely original way, it sets works by major artists such as Church, Landseer, Heade, Redon, Cezanne and Monet in a fresh and illuminating context. In grand landscape painting and dioramas, in imaginary scenes of prehistory and early human life, in depictions of exotic birds and of life in the wild, Darwin's sense of the interplay of all living things and of the beauties of colour and form in nature proved vital."--Jacket

Silent partners : artist and mannequin from function to fetish by Jane Munro( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The articulated human figure made of wax or wood has been a common tool in artistic practice since the 16th century. Its mobile limbs enable the artist to study anatomical proportion, fix a pose at will, and perfect the depiction of drapery and clothing. Over the course of the 19th century, the mannequin gradually emerged from the studio to become the artist's subject, at first humorously, then in more complicated ways, playing on the unnerving psychological presence of a figure that was realistic, yet unreal-lifelike, yet lifeless. Silent Partners locates the artist's mannequin within the context of an expanding universe of effigies, avatars, dolls, and shop window dummies. Generously illustrated, this book features works by such artists as Poussin, Gainsborough, Degas, Courbet, Cézanne, Kokoschka, Dalí, Man Ray, and others; the astute, perceptive text examines their range of responses to the uncanny and highly suggestive potential of the mannequin"--
