American sublime : landscape painting in the United States, 1820-1880 by Andrew Wilton( Book )

21 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The painters who came to be known as the Hudson River School -Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Frederic Edwin Church, Jasper Cropsey, Sanford Robinson Gifford, and others - found inspiration in our young country's natural wonders and were the first to paint many of its still-wild vistas. As America was settled and the wilderness receded, their successors - most notably Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran - carried their quest for the sublime to the Far West, communicating its breathtaking grandeur in brilliant views of Rocky Mountain peaks, roaring waterfalls, and vast canyons. Within a single generation these artists established the dramatic approach to American landscape painting that is celebrated in this stirringly beautiful book. The freshness of their vision, the intensity of their invention, and the energy of their execution were all born of the urgency these artists sensed in the life of America itself. Published to accompany a major transatlantic exhibition, American Sublime rejoices in America the Beautiful as seen in some of the country's most glorious landscape paintings. It contains a fully illustrated catalogue of all the paintings in the exhibition, with more than one hundred color plates, including three gatefolds. Biographies of the artists are included, and thoughtful and elegantly written essays cast new light on their ambitions and achievements. The lucid text places American landscape painting in the context of the international art world and of the European landscape tradition. And it explores ideas of national identity and empire in America, looking in particular at how these landscapes, whether real or imagined, reflect Americans' hopes and fears for their country. As a tribute to some of our most important American artists and the land that inspired them, this stunningly illustrated book will have a deep and wide appeal
Reading the Pre-Raphaelites by T. J Barringer( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pre-Raphaelite art is par excellence the art of mid-Victorian Britain, and this reappraisal fills an important void within available scholarship on the subject. By adopting a thematic approach, Tim Barringer navigates a course from analysis of key pictures to their significance within the complex cultural and social matrix of Victorian Britain. Individual chapters provide core concepts for understanding the Pre-Raphaelite engagement with medieval revivalism, nature worship, issues of class and gender, and the reconciliation of the religious image and realism in the nineteenth century; these chapters are also enlivened by telling biographical information where it is significant for the meaning of an image."--Jacket
Pre-Raphaelites : Victorian art and design by T. J Barringer( Book )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood shook the mid-19th-century art world. Effectively Britain's first modern art movement, the Brotherhood combined rebellion and revivalism, scientific precision, and imaginative grandeur. Today, the works of the Pre-Raphaelites are among the best known of all English paintings, and yet they have often been dismissed or misunderstood as Victoriana or escapism. This fascinating book convincingly corrects that view, examining works in a wide variety of media and demonstrating the broad scope of the movement's revolutionary ideas about art, design, and society. Led by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, and John Everett Millais, the Pre-Raphaelites' unflinchingly radical style, inspired by the purity of early Renaissance painting, defied convention, provoked critics, and entranced audiences. Many of their most famous paintings are featured, including Millais's Ophelia and Ford Madox Brown's The Last of England. This book also includes sculpture, photography, and the applied arts, the last of which shows the important role the Brotherhood played in the early development of the Arts and Crafts movement and the socialist ideas of the poet, designer, and theorist William Morris."--Publisher's website
Colonialism and the object : empire, material culture, and the museum by T. J Barringer( Book )

27 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing together an international group of scholars from a variety of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds, Colonialism and the Object explores the impact of colonial contact with other cultures on the material culture of both the colonized and the imperial nation. The book includes intensive case-studies of objects from India, Pakistan, New Zealand, China and Africa, all of which were collected by, or exhibited in, the institutions of the British Empire, and key chapters address issues of radical identity across cultural barriers, and the hybird styles of objects which can
The Pre-Raphaelite lens : British photography and painting, 1848-1875 by Diane Waggoner( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As photography steadily gained a foothold in the 1840s, a group of British painters calling themselves the Pre-Raphaelites came of age. Answering John Ruskin's call to study nature, 'rejecting nothing, selecting nothing, and scorning nothing,' these young painters were also spurred on by the possibilities of the new medium (introduced in 1839), particularly its ability to capture every nuance, every detail... This volume explores the rich dialogue between photography and painting through the themes of landscape, portraiture, literary and historical narratives and modern-life subjects. These artists - from photographers Lewis Carroll, Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, Henry Peach Robinson and Oscar Gustave Rejlander, to such painters as John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John William Inchbold - not only had much in common, but also upended traditional approaches to making pictures."--Publisher's description
Frederic Leighton : antiquity, Renaissance, modernity( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This original collection of writings reinterprets the art of Frederic Leighton (1830-1896), challenging the view that limits him to the category of 'Victorian artist' and revealing his broader significance in the history of modern art. The book is the first to extend the discussion of Leighton beyond his life and works to address such current concerns as gender and sexuality, the artist's identity and self-positioning, and Leighton's position in relation to Aestheticism and Modernism. The contributors argue that not only does Leighton's profound commitment to the ancient and renaissance past not exclude him from an important role in modern art, but indeed it assures his position there."--Jacket
Art and emancipation in Jamaica : Isaac Mendes Belisario and his worlds by T. J Barringer( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coinciding with the bicentenary of the abolition of the British slave trade, this multi-disciplinary volume chronicles the iconography of sugar, slavery, and the topography of Jamaica from the beginning of British rule in 1655 to the aftermath of emancipation in the 1840s
Men at work : art and labour in Victorian Britain by T. J Barringer( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring extensive new research, Men at Work examines a broad spectrum of the visual culture of Victorian Britain and its empire, including prints, photographs, book illustrations, material objects, and exhibition and museum displays. Barringer arrives at a major reinterpretation of the art and culture of nineteenth-century Britain as well as new readings of such key figures as Ford Madox Brown, John Linnell, and John Ruskin."--Jacket
Sculpture victorious : art in an age of invention, 1837-1901( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sculpture Victorious highlights the diversity, originality, and ubiquity of sculptural production during the reign of Queen Victoria. This lavishly illustrated book examines how colorful marbles, bronzes, finely wrought silver, and exquisitely detailed electrotypes, as well as gems, cameos, and porcelain, related to and contributed to the contemporary world. In an age of unprecedented territorial expansion, sculpture reflected the power of the British empire; at the same time, increased access to materials and resources facilitated artistic production and innovation. The partnership between art and industry was equally generative and creative, enabling daring explorations of sculpture's possibilities, both political and aesthetic. Bringing to bear a range of materials including statuary, reliefs, models, drawings, and objets d'art, as well as prints, photographs, and paintings, this stunning tome assembles, for the first time, the vibrancy, inventiveness, and modernity of Victorian sculpture."--
Art and the British Empire( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is dedicated to the problematic relationship between art and the British Empire from the 16th century to decolonization in the 20th century.

Writing the Pre-Raphaelites : text, context, subtext by Michaela Giebelhausen( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays claims that a complex network of texts by critics, biographers and diarists established the credibility and influence of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Throughout the twentieth century, Modernist taste failed to acknowledge the achievement of oppositional groupings such as the Pre-Raphaelites. The essays collected here, however, reveal that the British group anticipated later avant-gardes by using the written word to configure for itself a radical artistic identity."--Jacket
Paintings from the reign of Victoria : the Royal Holloway collection, London by Mary Cowling( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Holloway, a self-made English multi-millionaire, embarked upon a carefully orchestrated purchasing spree during the last years of his life, amassing a remarkable collection of modern paintings. This collection was the final enhancement to Holloway's generous endowment of a College for women, founded in 1879 and opened by Queen Victoria in 1886. The collection was widely reported and attracted visitors from the start but, although individual paintings have appeared in major exhibitions in Europe and the United States, this exhibition will enable American visitors to see the majority of these works for the very first time." "The exhibition highlights sixty extraordinary paintings which not only exemplify the astute taste of a late Victorian collector, but also represent some of the highest achievements in the figurative and landscape art of the nineteenth century. This volume accompanies the exhibition, which was organized and circulated by Art Services International, Alexandra, Virginia."--Jacket
David Hockney : 82 portraits and 1 still-life by David Hockney( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following his sweeping exploration of landscape in 2012 at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, published in the phenomenally successful David Hockney: A Bigger Picture, this new volume looks exclusively at a new series of portraits that David Hockney, one of the most famous artists in the world, has been painting recently. In 2012, Hockney returned to California, where he had lived and worked for long periods. There followed a series of painted portraits, the subjects of which ranged from studio assistants and office staff to family, friends, and long-term acquaintances. Also included are a number of fellow artists, curators, and gallerists, including John Baldessari and Larry Gagosian. Reproduced in stunning colorplates the paintings are shown alongside revealing images of the works in various stages of development, which provide an exciting insight into Hockneys painterly process. The book is introduced with two important new texts. This vivid series of portraits, executed in bold acrylics, observant and full of life, marks Hockneys vibrant return to Technicolor form."

Ford Madox Brown : the unofficial Pre-raphaelite : works on paper by Ford Madox Brown from Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery by Ford Madox Brown( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ford Madox Brown: The Unofficial Pre-Raphaelite - the third in a series of publications on Birmingham's unique collection of nineteenth-century drawings - throws new light on this important artist. Born in France in 1821, Ford Madox Brown was older than his contemporaries Holman Hunt, Millais, and pupil Rossetti. The creator of seminal nineteenth-century paintings, including Work and The Last of England, Brown has nevertheless remained a presence that defies easy categorisation in art history. Never officially a member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, he was, however, a central figure within this major nineteenth-century art movement. As Brown said of himself in 1851,'if not an actual Pre-Raphaelite Brother, I am an aider and abettor of Pre-Raphaelitism'." "The volume illustrates fifty-five selected drawings and works on paper, which appear throughout the essays and the main exhibition presentation, forty of which are reproduced in colour. Each work is accompanied by an entry, which includes specifications, provenance, inscriptions and an extended caption. A full catalogue listing of the Museums' 174 works on paper by Madox Brown appears in this volume, which will be incorporated into a new online Pre-Raphaelite Resource Site. This includes sketch and study drawings, watercolours, stained glass designs, design for wood engravings and archive material dating from the 1840s to the 1890s, which were largely acquired through public subscription from the collection of Charles Fairfax Murray in 1906"--Jacket
