Exposed : the Victorian nude( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exposure of the body through representations of the nude was one of the most controversial issues in Victorian art. In an era that witnessed a broader audience for art and the development of new reproductive technologies, the nude was implicated in a variety of debates concerning public health and morals, which meant it could not be comfortably contained within the confines of high culture." "This illustrated publication surveys the full range of Victorian representations of female and male figures. While concentrating on painting, sculpture and drawing, it also explores the depiction of the body in other media, including photography, popular illustration and film, exposing issues of morality, sexuality and desire that remain relevant today."--Jacket

16 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pre-Raphaelitism was one of the great revolutionary movements of 19th century British art, rejecting both the academic dryness of classicism and the vapid sentimentality of so-called genre painting. This text showcases the range, virtuosity and vision of the artists aligned with the pre-Raphaelite brotherhood

William Orpen : politics, sex & death by Robert Upstone( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great British artists of the first quarter of the twentieth century, Sir William Orpen (1878-1931) is an example of an artist who, despite his career as a highly successful portrait painter, remains something of an outsider. Although Orpen is represented in many public collections in the UK, Ireland and the USA, his work does not fit easily into the conventional moulds of art history." "This illustrated monograph portrays an artist who, at the time of his death, was probably the best-known painter in Britain. The book reveals the full variety of Orpen's work, from his revitalization of the nude and his conversation pieces to his extraordinary allegories and war paintings, and analyses the series of self-portraits that are a particular feature of his oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET

William Orpen : an onlooker in France : a critical edition of the artist's war memoirs by William Orpen( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Orpen was the only official war artist to publish an extensive memoir of his experiences in the Great War. This ... narrative was first published in 1921 and is a classic of war literature. In this fully revised edition, Orpen's war paintings and drawings have been reproduced in colour and keyed to the narrative, resulting in a perceptive and moving account by an artist who moved easily between all levels of the military, from generals to Tommies, and was a close friend of many journalists and influential civilians. But despite his high-level connections, Orpen's emotional sympathies were with the common soldier, whose post-war neglect embittered his view of the political classes. He witnessed not only the battlefields but also what he felt to be the greed and self-interest of the national delegates at the Peace Conference in Versaiiles in 1919. His text contains ... comments on the personalities of his sitters. ..."--Book jacket
