American impressionism : a new vision, 1880-1900 by Katherine M Bourguignon( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: This lively, beautifully illustrated book focuses on a group of American artists who applied Impressionist ideas and techniques to American subjects, and in so doing, they attracted and cultivated an enthusiastic American audience. These artists, including Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, James McNeill Whistler, Theodore Robinson, William Merritt Chase, and Childe Hassam, invented a new and highly diverse formulation of the Impressionist movement. Essays by experts in the field of Impressionism discuss the impact of Impressionism on the countryside and city paintings of Robinson and Hassam; and consider significant pictures by Cassatt, Sargent, and Whistler that demonstrate their role in the exploration of brilliant color harmonies and compositions developed from contact with French artists such as Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. The book features more than 60 paintings, some well known, others less familiar, produced in Europe and America. By representing American imagery, from the Atlantic coastline to New York's public gardens, through the most current ideas about art-making, the artists showcased here created a unique expression of an evolving national identity
Hopper by Edward Hopper( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents a definitive Hopper monograph. Published for a massive retrospective at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, and the Grand Palais in Paris, it approaches Hopper's relatively small oeuvre in two sections. The first covers the artist's formative years from approximately 1900 to 1924, examining a selection of sketches, paintings, drawings, illustrations, prints and watercolors, which are considered alongside works by painters that influenced Hopper, such as Winslow Homer, Robert Henri, John Sloan, Edgar Degas and Walter Sickert. The second section considers the years from 1925 onwards, addressing his mature output through chronological but thematic groupings."--Jacket flap
Gauguin and the origins of symbolism by Paul Gauguin( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the mid-1880s until his departure for Tahiti in 1891, Gauguin moved beyond Impressionism to become the leading figure of the Symbolist movement in painting. This departure from Impressionism led him to question the entire 'naturalist' tradition of European art from the Renaissance onwards. He sacrificed all of painting's descriptive devices in favour of line and flat colour. His path towards Symbolism can also be characterised as a 'primitive' quest, developed both in iconography and style. On the iconographic level, this tendency starts from the use of a number of pastoral themes representing scenes of rural life. This spiritual return was accompanied by a stylistic regression, a leap from naturalism towards archaic modes of representation. The volume follows this process through a series of encounters between Gauguin and his masters, his contemporaries and his pupils."--Jacket
The spectacular art of Jean-Léon Gérôme : 1824-1904 by Jean Lon Grme( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gérôme was one of the most famous artists of his day, yet throughout his career he was the object of polemical debate and harsh criticism. Long stigmatized as the embodiment of sterile academicism, he is now considered to be one of the greatest painters of the nineteenth century. Gérôme's interest in Antiquity, his theatrical approach to history painting, and his complex relationships with the Orient and with the new medium of photography all contributed to his highly inventive imagery. Acquired by American collectors at an early date, Gérôme's oeuvre fired the new world's historical imagination and even inspired its favorite medium, the movies. This catalogue traces Gérôme's unique career and features his major works--from history paintings to polychrome sculptures--thereby casting the nineteenth century in a new light."--Cover p. [4]

Photorealism : 50 years of hyperrealistic painting( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They devote themselves to the veneer of modern everyday life, the mirrored world of surfaces. Reflective shop windows, limousines with shiny chrome, garishly colored plastic kitsch, and urban scenes have been the favorite subjects of the Photorealists for fifty years. In a complicated work process, the artists employ technical aids to create painted illusions: they photograph their source materials, transfer them with the aid of slide projectors or scans, and then capture them precisely with the brush or spray gun on canvas. This publication presents the impressive works of art by leading figures in this movement, starting with sixties artists such as Richard Estes, Chuck Close, and Don Eddy and moving through three generations of artists to the hyper-realistic visual experiences of contemporary digital artists such as Yigal Ozeri, Raphaella Spence, and Robert Neffson."--Publisher's website

Lágrimas de Eros by Guillermo Solana( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición está dedicada a los tormentos de la pasión, al lado oscuro del deseo sexual. El título procede del último libro de Georges Bataille, Les larmes d'Éros, y se inspira en algunas de sus ideas sobre el erotismo, como la dialéctica prohibición/transgresión o la identificación de lo erótico con el sacrificio religioso. La muestra tiene un carácter total, pansexual, e incluye todas las orientaciones y nichos del deseo: la mirada masculina y la femenina, lo hetero y lo homo, el voyeurismo y exhibicionismo, el bondage y el sadomasoquismo, los diversos fetichismos, etc. Todas esas especialidades se reconocen en el gran repertorio de los mitos de Eros, tanto los que proceden del Olimpo grecorromano como los que vienen de la Biblia. La exposición ilustra la pervivencia de esos mitos hasta nuestros días y a la vez su transformación en la época moderna, que les ha dado nuevos sentidos perversos
