Illuminating well-known works as well as many that have never before been reproduced, Masters of Color and Light showcases an array of paintings that range far beyond watercolor's early reputation as the "lighter and daintier" medium

Making American taste : narrative art for a new democracy( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making American Taste features fifty-five works from the New-York Historical Society's collection that cast new light on both the history of American art and the formation of American cultural ideals during a crucial period from the 1830s to the late 1860s. By integrating history, literary and religious subjects with now better-known examples of rural and domestic genre, the exhibition explores the broad range of styles and narrative themes that appealed to nineteenth-century Americans seeking cultural refinement. The exhibition includes Louis Lang's The Return of the 69th (Irish) Regiment, 1862, a Civil War masterpiece rediscovered, as well as works by such canonical artists as Benjamin West, Asher B. Durand, William Sidney Mount and Eastman Johnson. Additionally, significant works by artists who were major figures in their own time, such as Daniel Huntington, Henry Peters Gray and T.H. Matteson, but who have been virtually ignored in current American art surveys, are also on exhibition. The reintegration of these "forgotten" works into the larger art-historical framework challenges the canon of current taste that has elevated genre to a privileged position at the expense of other narrative modes (including Stuart and Tudor, Shakespearean, and idealized subjects inspired by European masters). Together the works expand our understanding of the tastes of the nineteenth-century New Yorkers whose gifts formed the New-York Historical Society's core collections
Children of the gilded era : portraits by Sargent, Renoir, Cassatt and their contemporaries by Barbara Dayer Gallati( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Children of the Gilded Era: Portraits by Sargent, Renoir, Cassatt, and their Contemporaries presents a compelling selection of children's portraits painted at the end of the nineteenth century - an age of Mark Twain, Henry James and Edith Wharton. The featured paintings by John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Lawrence Ahna-Tadema, Edgar Degas, and James McNeill Whistler, some of the leading artists of this pivotal period in the histories of the United States and Europe, offer an idyllic view of yesterday's childhood." "Well-known examples such as John Singer Sargent's delightful Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose, with its enchanting garden scene of Polly and Dolly, daughters of the artist Frederick Barnard, lighting paper lanterns, or the collective family groups such as The Artist's Family by the French Impressionist Pierre Auguste Renoir, showing his wife and children with their nurse, are featured alongside lesser-known, but equally endearing, works sharing both the formal and informal moments of a bygone age."--Jacket
American paintings in the Brooklyn Museum : artists born by 1876 by Teresa A Carbone( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sargent : portraits of artists and friends by Richard Ormond( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the sitters in this collection were John Singer Sargent's close friends. They are posed informally, sometimes in the act of painting or singing, and it is evident from the bold way they confront us that they are personalities of a creative stamp. Brilliant as these pictures are as works of art and penetrating studies of character, they are also records of relationships, allegiances, influences and aspirations. This volume aims to explore these friendships in depth and draw out their significance in the story of Sargent's life and the development of his art. The book is structured chronologically, with sections arranged according to the places in which Sargent worked and formed relationships during his cosmopolitan career: Paris, London, New York, Italy and the Alps. The cast of characters includes famous names, among them Gabriel Fauré and Auguste Rodin, Robert Louis Stevenson and Henry James. But the authors also make their point with images of Sargent's intimate friends, such as the artists Jane and Wilfrid de Glehn, who accompanied him on his sketching expeditions to the Continent, and the Italian painter Ambrogio Raffele, a recurrent model inhis Alpine studies. In such paintings, Sargent explored the making of art (his own included) and the relationship of the artist to the natural world. These are examples of an absorbing range of images and personalities, all distinguished in one way or another for their astistry, and all linked by friendship and a shared aesthetic to the central figure of Sargent himself.

Beauty's legacy : gilded age portraits in America by Barbara Dayer Gallati( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Named after a series of charity portraiture shows held by the New York social elite during the 1890s, Beauty's Legacy examines the resurgence of society portraiture in the United States between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of World War I. The catalog features 65 portraits from the New-York Historical Society collection: sitters range from celebrated beauties to business titans, among them Mrs. William Waldorf Astor, Emma Thursby, Samuel Verplanck Hoffman, Mary Barrett Wendell, Reverend Henry Codman Potter, and Mary Gardiner Thompson; featured artists include John Singer Sargent, James Carroll Beckwith, George Peter Alexander Healy, Daniel Huntington, Eastman Johnson, and Benjamin Curtis Porter. Accompanying entries provide insight into patterns of patronage within a social milieu obsessed with identity and appearance. Essays consider issues such as celebrity, exclusivity, philanthropy, and the competing ideals of natural and enhanced beauty
