Jean-Etienne Liotard, 1702-1789 by Jean-Etienne Liotard( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean-Etienne Liotard was renowned during the eighteenth century for his exquisite portraits and works in pastel, not to mention his outlandish Oriental garb. He painted some of the most significant rulers and aristocrats of Europe, including several members of the British royal family. A peripatetic artist who worked in the Levant as well as major European capitals, Liotard was born in Geneva and studied in Paris before travelling to Italy and then on to Constantinople in the train of British aristocratic Grand Tourists. There he painted the local residents as well as the British community, and adopted the eccentric style of dress that, when he later visited London, caused him to become known as 'The Turk'. This volume illuminates the career of this remarkable but now little-known artist, showcasing a variety of his extraordinary works, including portraits, drawings and enamels

Arthur Melville : adventures in colour by Kenneth McConkey( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Melville was arguably the most innovative and modernist Scottish artist of his generation and one of the finest British watercolourists of the nineteenth century, yet he avoided categorisation. In 1943 that the Scottish Colourist John Duncan Fergusson could confess that although they never met, "his work opened up to me the way to free painting - not merely freedom in the use of paint, but freedom of outlook". This book offers a comprehensive survey of Arthur Melville's (1855-1904) rich and varied career as artist-adventurer, Orientalist, forerunner of The Glasgow Boys, painter of modern life and re-interpreter of the landscape of Scotland. His travels inspired spectacular watercolours and paintings. This book illustrates around sixty of his works, each with a catalogue entry, and an essay by Kenneth McConkey, which discusses Melville's art and career. 0Exhibition: Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh, UK (10.10.2015-17.01.2016)
Daubigny and impressionism by Frances Fowle( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known today for his atmospheric views of the river Oise, Charles Francois Daubigny was a pioneer of modern landscape painting and an important precursor of French Impressionism. Although commercially highly successful he was often criticised for his broad, sketch-like handling and unembellished view of nature, and was dubbed the leader of 'the school of the impression'. As a result he drew the attention of the next generation of artists, among them Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh, who were inspired by Daubigny's frank naturalism, bold compositions and technical innovations. Theirs was an artistic dialogue which spanned thirty years, from the early 1860s to the end of Van Gogh's short life
Peter Doig : no foreign lands by Peter Doig( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Doig is well known for the exotic atmospheres and dreamy narratives that appear in his work. With an uncommonly rich color palette and a unique material sensibility, he has created some of the most resonant and evocative images in contemporary painting, placing him among the most inventive painters working today. But, as this extensive volume makes clear, he is also a sophisticated visual thinker, endlessly preoccupied with the process and history of painting. "No Foreign Lands" is the first publication to examine in depth the conceptual underpinnings of Doig's oeuvre. Particular attention is given to the importance of motifs, themes and variations in his work, explored in over 200 paintings and works on paper from the past 13 years, among them new works never before published
Pin-ups : Toulouse-Lautrec and the art of celebrity by Hannah Brocklehurst( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a beautiful exploration of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's works in lithography. It explores the new artistic approach to the poster at the end of the 19th century, which bridged visual and popular culture and turned the relationship between 'high' and 'low' art on its head. Technical innovations in lithography pioneered by Lautrec and other artists produced larger sizes, more varied colours and new effects and launched the role of the poster as a powerful tool for communication and marketing in fin de siecle Paris. Lautrec's embrace of celebrity helped to define the famous hotspots (theatres, cabarets and cafe-concerts) of fin de siecle Paris and made their stars recognisable figures across the whole city. Works by contemporaries such as Pierre Bonnard, Theophile Alexandre Steinlen and Jules Cheret also feature, and Lautrec's influence on British, and particularly Scottish, artists of the period will be explored. These include Walter Richard Sickert, Arthur Melville, John Duncan Fergusson, William Nicholson and James Pryde. Exhibition: Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh, UK (06.10.2018 - 20.01.2019)
Inspiring impressionism : Daubigny, Monet, Van Gogh by M. van Dijk( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ART & DESIGN STYLES: IMPRESSIONISM & POST-IMPRESSIONISM. Charles Francois Daubigny (1817-1878) was one of the most important French artists of the nineteenth century. Admired by the Impressionists, he routinely painted outdoors, invented new subjects such as the mid-river view, and developed a radically "unfinished" style. He supported younger artists at the Salon and introduced both Monet and Pissarro to the Paris art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel. In later life he explored a more subjective interpretation of nature in his sunsets and nocturnes, inspiring not only Monet but Vincent van Gogh, who spent the last two months of his life close to Daubigny's home and studio at Auvers-sur-Oise. These themes and others are explored through a series of essays that examine his interactions with the young impressionists, the market response to his paintings, his pioneering use of a studio boat, the evolution of his highly original technical processes, his role as the leader of an artists' colony and his importance for Van Gogh

Beyond Caravaggio by Letizia Treves( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Italian painter known as Caravaggio (1571-1610) claims a place among the most revolutionary figures in the history of art. His intense naturalism, almost brutal realism, and dramatic use of light had a wide impact on European painters, including Orazio Gentileschi, Valentin de Boulogne, and Gerrit van Honthorst. Each of Caravaggio's followers absorbed something different from his work, propagating his stylistic legacy across Europe. In this extensively illustrated catalogue, Letizia Treves introduces the international Caravaggesque movement and traces the distinct artistic personalities of its leading players. Even now, Caravaggio's name overshadows the other talented artists who adopted his approach to narrative painting: the use of theatrical lighting to illuminate a story encapsulated in a single, dramatic moment. Treves explains the innovative and unifying features of these painters' work and how, despite resistance to their style and subject matter, many outstanding Caravaggesque pictures found their way into important collections
