Red Grooms : the graphic work by Walter Knestrick ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Even a quick glance through the pages of Red Grooms: The Graphic Work makes one thing perfectly clear: Red Grooms is an original. And this comprehensive collection of his graphic work from 1956 to 1999 offers a dazzling display of Grooms's unique mastery of an array of printmaking techniques. From delicate, soft-ground etchings to an over six-foot tall woodblock print to spray-painted stencils, Red Grooms's artistry reflects his antic humor, imaginative vision, and often raucous view of an extensive range of subjects." "Walter Knestrick, a boyhood classmate of Grooms who has collected the artist's prints over the years, introduces the reader to Red Grooms and tells of his fifty-year friendship with the artist from their early artistic experiments in Nashville to their collaboration on this superb assembly of Red Grooms's graphic work."--BOOK JACKET
Janet Fish : paintings by Vincent Katz ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Artist Janet Fish is well known for her richly executed oil paintings and watercolors of glass, fruit, and flowers, through which she "captures the beauty of everyday objects." The true subject of her paintings, however, is the movement of light and color from one object to the other, and critics have continually praised her art, labeling it "beyond realism." The only previous monograph on her paintings, long out of print, is today a collector's item. Now, Abrams is proud to present this new and completely up-to-date survey of her work." "The introduction gives way to page after page of Janet Fish's beautiful and engaging paintings, filled with life and light, color and fascinating detail. In all, more than 100 works are reproduced in full color, including gorgeously outsize details and four gatefolds. An illustrated chronology as well as selected exhibition history and bibliography round out the book."--BOOK JACKET

Maine sublime : Frederic Edwin Church's landscapes of Mount Desert and Mount Katahdin ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Frederic Church, the acclaimed Hudson River School artist, first traveled to Maine in 1850. Over the next decades Church ventured repeatedly from his New York State home, Olana, to explore the Maine coast and its rocky islands. He also frequently trekked inland to visit Mount Katahdin. Maine provided sensational sunsets, robust waves crashing on rocky shores, and an abundance of wilderness well suited to Church's artistic vision. Maine Sublime brings together all of the artwork in the Olana collection resulting from and inspired by Church's travels, from finished oil sketches that Church selected to mount, frame, and display at his home to pencil sketches and cartoons that he stored in portfolios. The subjects include such specific locations as Sunset Bar Harbor (1854) and works like Sunset (ca. 1852-65) and Twilight a Sketch (1858), which were inspired by dramatic Maine skies and are evocative of the region as a whole. Throughout his life, Church would continue to visit Maine, sketching, fishing, and hiking. In 1878 he bought land on Lake Millinocket with a view of Katahdin and built a simple cabin. After Church's marriage in 1860, his wife Isabel often joined his excursions to Maine. In a witty cartoon included in this catalog, Frederic and Isabel Church on Mount Desert Island, Church captures his wife's admiration of the scenery."--Publisher's description

Charm by Sextus Propertius ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Born near Assisi around 50 BC, Sextus Propertius was one of the great writers of love poetry in Roman literature. His first book of poems, published in Rome when he was about 20 years of age, made him an overnight sensation. This book caught the attention of one of the great literary benefactors of Rome, Maecenas, who had supported and befriended both Horace and Virgil. Propertius, accordingly, was introduced into their circle
Pleasure palaces : the art & homes of Hunt Slonem by Vincent Katz ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Artist Hunt Slonem creates his magical paintings and sculptures of flora, fauna, saints, and other subjects with inspiration that he draws not only from his sense of spirituality, but also from his environment in a "self-created world" filled with myriad exotic forms, vivid colors, and mystical essences. While the public can imagine an artist at work or at home, rarely does an aficionado or a reader gain access to an artist's lair. That will change with the publication of Pleasure Palaces: The Art and Homes of Hunt Slonem, by Vincent Katz. Here, the reader is invited into not only the artist's studios (past and present) but also his homes in New York and Louisiana. From Slonem's first downtown studio in New York City "where it all began" in 1975 (shown on the book's cover) to his Victorian mansion on the Hudson River in Kingston, New York, as well as his two Louisiana plantations--one on the Bayou Teche in St. Mary Parish, about two hours' drive northwest of New Orleans, and the other in a remote location one hour north of Baton Rouge--the reader will get a unique perspective on how this Neo-Expressionist artist's environments are brought to life by his collections of antique neo-Gothic furniture, Blenko glass, and period frames, not to mention his astonishing collection of tropical birds, which are both his muses and his passion. Multi-talented poet/author/curator/documentarian/editor Vincent Katz, who has written about Slonem numerous times and has previously contributed poetry to Slonem's publications Hunt's Place and Exotica, has written an essay for Pleasure Palaces that not only provides a critical analysis of the artist's work, but also explores his spiritual life and how it influences his art and the extraordinary homes that are his havens. Katz's essay and an interview with the artist bookend lavishly illustrated color sections, with views of Slonem's estates (Albania Plantation, Lakeside Plantation, Cordt's Mansion) and New York City studios (including the private aviary in his West 10th Street studio) interspersed with his oil and watercolor paintings of flora and fauna. At the book's conclusion, an up-to-date chronology of Slonem's solo and group exhibitions (including forthcoming 2007 shows), a bibliography, a list of awards received, and a list of public collections that include his works complete this comprehensive document of Slonem's body of work."--Publisher's website
