Thomas Gainsborough : 1727-1788 by Thomas Gainsborough ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) was one of the masters of 18th-century art. This stunning book, published to accompany a major international exhibition covering the artist's entire career, reveals the sheer range, quality, and originality of Gainsborough's work, from his engagingly naturalistic landscapes and touching images of children to his sophisticated and glamorous society portraits. In their revealing essay, Michael Rosenthal and Martin Myrone explore Gainsborough's dynamic involvement with the social world of his day, while other essays explore his subtle approach to the lucrative world of fashionable portraiture and the often pointed social commentary behind his seductive landscapes. This volume provides new and refreshing insights into Gainsborough as an artist who succeeded in creating an experimental and modern art for his own time, and whose works remain vital and rewarding today
Henry Fuseli by Henry Fuseli ( Book )
11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Painter, poet, critic and teacher, Henry Fuseli (1741-1825) is one of the most idiosyncratic figures in the history of British art. His work has always been the subject of speculation, gossip and fantasy." "This book offers a completely new interpretation of the artist, placing him firmly in the context of a period of traumatic social, cultural and political revolution. Martin Myrone explores his career from his early work in London and Rome to his old age, the period of his greatest professional success when he exerted a profound influence on a whole generation of younger British artists. A vivid image of the artist emerges, revealing Fuseli as a seminal figure in the development of modern art."--BOOK JACKET

Producing the past : aspects of antiquarian culture and practice, 1700-1850 by Martin Myrone ( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Antiquarianism, which had its roots in Renaissance thought, was a popular intellectual and cultural pursuit throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The antiquarian work of collecting, compiling and presenting material which exposed the past was seminal to the formation of social and national identities. These essays evaluate the cultural and political implications of antiquarianism in the period 1700-1850. The volume also considers how the antiquarians laid the foundations of later museum culture and the discipline of history."--BOOK JACKET
George Stubbs by Martin Myrone ( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Martin : apocalypse by John Martin ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John Martin's spectacular paintings, featuring panoramic scenes of battles, biblical catastrophes and the vastness of nature, moved and astonished viewers in his own day. The legacy of his apocalyptic imagery remains clearly visible today, in art, popular culture and blockbuster cinema. Yet his success was controversial: many critics thought his work vulgar and misguided, and were further confused by Martin;s engagement with science, engineering and public affairs. Perhaps as a result, he has been unjustly neglected by modern art history. This long-overdue reassessment surveys the full range of Martin's achievement, examining the paintings and prints that made him famous, as well as his astoundingly accomplished watercolours. With many stunning illustrations capturing the full drama of Martin's vision, the book also includes searching essays by leading authorities on his life and work, providing new insights into the career of an extordinary and driven artist with a perpetually enquiring mind."--P [4] of cover
Rude Britannia : British comic art ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Put together with some the country's best-known cartoonists and comedy writers, this exhibition explores British comic art from the 1600s to the present day. Bringing together a wide array of paintings, sculptures, film and photography, as well as graphic art and comic books, the exhibition celebrates a rich history of cartooning and visual jokes. The room on the Absurd is curated by comedian Harry Hill, and includes such diverse materials as Alice in Wonderland illustrations, David Shrigley's sculpture, and films by Edwina Ashton and Oliver Michaels. Within the Bawdy, Donald McGill's smutty seaside postcards can be seen with works by artists as different as Aubrey Beardsley, Sarah Lucas, and Grayson Perry. The rooms exploring Politics, Social Satire and Cruikshank's Victorian masterpiece The Worship of Bacchus, have been put together with Gerald Scarfe, Steve Bell, and the cartoonists from Viz. These show the power of comic art as a form of social and political commentary throughout history, from satires of Georgian society by Rowlandson and Gillray to Spitting Image's damning Thatcher puppet. Looking at comedy that is both timeless and of-its-time, Rude Britannia contrasts contemporary artists such as Angus Fairhurst with key historical pieces, and covers everything from Hogarth to the YBAs

John Martin by Martin Myrone ( )

In February and March of 1849, the ""Illustrated London News"" carried a series of announcements about the works of the painter John Martin being exhibited at the British Institution, the third of which included an account of his early life. On the 17th of March the paper received a long letter from the artist, reproduced here in full, from his house on the river at Chelsea, in which he demands a right of reply. Their article is, he claims, so unfortunate a tissue of errors from beginning to end, that it can only have the effect of misleading your readers; and I must, therefore, request y
