Rodin's art : the Rodin collection of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University by Albert Edward Elsen ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The late Albert Elsen was the first American scholar to study seriously the work of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, and the person most responsible for a revival of interest in the artist as a modern innovator - after years during which the sculpture had been dismissed as so much Victorian bathos. After a fortuitous meeting with the financier, philanthropist, and art collector B. Gerald Cantor, Elsen helped Cantor build a major collection of Rodin's work. A large part of this collection, consisting of more than two hundred works, was donated to Stanford University's museum by Mr. Cantor, who died in 1996. In size, Stanford's collection is surpassed only by the Musee Rodin in Paris and rivaled only by the collection in Philadelphia
Revolutionary tides : the art of the political poster, 1914-1989 by Jeffrey T Schnapp ( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Public assemblies and multitudes in action are fundamental to our notion of political life. Through 120 posters-many never previously reproduced-the book examines the impact of large gatherings of people in politics and society concentrating on the turbulent years of the first half of the 20th century. The posters will be presented in a nearly year-long US exhibition, drawn from the massive collection of Stanford University's Hoover Institution, and augmented by works from the Wolfsonian Museum, Florida International University, and the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University. The exhibition catalog, published in conjunction with the Cantor Arts Center, explores the decisive importance of large gatherings of people and its correlative, the mass medium of poster art, and considers the complex nature of the portrayal of political crowds in the modern period.Schnapp's text frames the featured works within a broader history of the images of the crowd in Western art. The essay aims to sharpen the reader's perspective by creating a synthetic understanding of how emerging principles of popular sovereignty in politics shaped new images and myths of a new, collective sense of our humanity

The changing garden : four centuries of European and American art by Betsy Geraghty Fryberger ( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This beautifully illustrated volume examines the garden as an enduring and evolving cultural resource, in two hundred works by more than one hundred artists. Prints, drawings, photographs, and paintings illuminate the changing aesthetics and uses of gardens from the powerful Medici dynasty's villas in sixteenth-century Florence and Louis XIV's royal showcase at Versailles to such democratic urban parks as New York City's Central Park and San Francisco's Crissy Field, adapted from a former military base."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Young America : childhood in 19th-century art and culture by Claire Perry ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In an era of both optimism and anxiety about the nation's future, Americans in the nineteenth century focused attention on the cultivation and education of children as future citizens. Contemporary portrayals of children - in fine paintings, popular prints, illustrated primers, and advertisements - helped to shape cultural expectations: pictures of hardy country boys, intent schoolchildren, and little girls practicing embroidery were examples of the ways model Americans should look and behave. At the same time, images showing street urchins, young slaves, or children at work in factories reflected troubling conflicts in society. This appealing book explores representations of children in relation to the currents of American culture, including urbanization, immigration, separate spheres of the genders, and the nation's professed devotion to egalitarianism. A generous selection of illustrations includes well-loved works by such artists as Winslow Homer and Eastman Johnson, as well as fascinating archival images. With engaging depictions of children from varied economic, racial, and geographic backgrounds, Young America opens a new window on the life and culture of the United States during a century of vast change and growth

3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The full range of Dow's creative genius is represented in this volume, reproduced in color." "Two authoritative essays explore Dow's influence and his place within the arts and crafts community of his time."--BOOK JACKET
Art of being Tuareg : Sahara nomads in a modern world by Thomas K Seligman ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This excellent volume is an essential addition to the limited scholarship resulting from more than a century of Euro-American fascination with Africa's Tuareg peoples. This catalog, from a collaboratively produced exhibition, examines the Tuareg in multiple contexts, enriching anthropological and art historical studies with essays on Tuareg poetry, music, dress, and gender roles. Attention to Tuareg music usefully balances the study of artfully crafted instruments and traditional musical forms with the contemporary music, often electrically amplified, that has a growing presence in popular world music today. This volume will interest audiences in anthropology, African studies, and geography, in addition to students of global art history. Artists who work with textiles, jewelry, and metalwork will find here beautiful and fascinating artworks that are rarely examined in such depth. Analysis of the signs and symbols repeated in these objects and in other decorative patterns (i.e., architectural decoration) shows how the interpretation of their meanings varies widely, in part because the Tuareg nomads have historically preferred the oral tradition to written documentation
The photography of John Gutmann: culture shock by Sandra S Phillips ( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This retrospective volume traces Gutmann's career from his training as a painter in Germany, first under renowned Expressionist Otto Muller, then in the wild, decadent Berlin of the 1930s, through his resolution to leave during Hitler's ascent to power, to his decision to settle in San Francisco. As a Jew, Gutmann was forbidden by the Nazis to exhibit or teach; photojournalism struck him as a useful means of supporting himself as a refugee. He had no training as a photographer and no interest in the medium as a pure art form, but he was fascinated by the popular culture of photography in magazines. Bringing to San Francisco the eye for the bizarre that he had developed in recording the vibrant, cosmopolitan life of Berlin - an eye further sensitized by his status as an exile in a strange country - Gutmann photographed the odd, the morbid, and the freakish with the detachment of an anthropologist examining an exotic culture."--BOOK JACKET
