Photography in Boston, 1955-1985 by Rachel Rosenfield Lafo( Book )

Painting in Boston : 1950-2000( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the history of painting in Boston during the first half of the twentieth century has been well recorded, with particular attention to the so-called Boston School of academic painters, the latter half of the century has been relatively neglected, despite the remarkable body of work produced during that period. This handsome volume, created by DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in conjunction with a major exhibition, is the first to document the importance of painting produced in Boston after 1950 and the impact of modernist and postmodernist issues on this work." "The book includes essays by five experts in the field, presenting and analyzing the work of sixty-seven artists. Rachel Rosenfield Lafo introduces the reader to the Boston art scene, from the academic institutions that have nourished the area's painters, to the galleries where their work has been shown, to the museums, exhibitions, and critics that have shaped public opinion. Writing about the realist tradition that has thrived in Boston for over three hundred years, John Stomberg focuses on a group of painters of widely differing styles who have redefined realism in modern and contemporary terms."--Jacket
James Surls : the Splendora years, 1977-1997 by Terrie Sultan( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated book, which accompanies an exhibition of the same name at the Blaffer Gallery, the Art Museum of the University of Houston, captures an extraordinarily creative period in Surls's career - the two decades he lived and worked in Splendora, Texas. During this time, Surls established a home and artists' colony in the East Texas pineywoods, where he produced an astonishing body of work while encouraging the creativity of other visual and performing artists. Magnificent color and black-and-white images illustrate the key sculptures and works on paper that Surls created in Splendora." "Accompanying the images are essays and interviews that offer fascinating insights into Surls's artistic breakthrough in Splendora. Terrie Sultan introduces Surls's work and provides a concise biography of the artist. Eleanor Heartney places Surls's Splendora works within the larger contexts of American and international art. Artists and gallery owners John Alexander, Joseph Havel, The Art Guys, Hiram Butler, and Sharon and Gus Kopriva, as well as curator Jim Harithas and architect Peter Zweig, share lively memories of Splendora as an artist colony and of Surls's pivotal role as artistic mentor and arts impresario for the whole Houston-area arts community. James Surls and his wife Charmaine Locke add a personal signature to the book by describing how their love and their work blossomed in an atmosphere of total freedom to experiment and create."--Jacket
