Monet and the Mediterranean by Joachim Pissarro ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 819 libraries worldwide
First invited by Pierre-Auguste Renoir to the Italian Riviera in 1883, Monet over the next decades crafted several magnificent series of works, remarkably different from the paintings that had established his reputation in the North. Here, assembled for the first time in its entirety, is the audaciously colorful group of works that he executed on the Italian and French Rivieras in 1884 and 1888, and in Venice in 1908. Arresting in their stunning color, dazzling light effects, and the sheer beauty of the land and the sea they depict, these paintings address in a new language the artist's ability to stretch his own pictorial boundaries. Now available in paperback, this new look at Monet accompanied the highly successful exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum in 1997.

Masters of color and light : Homer, Sargent, and the American watercolor movement by Linda S Ferber ( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 760 libraries worldwide
In the 1870s and 1880s, artists' societies promoted watercolors as attractive, decorative, inexpensive alternatives to oils, successfully elevating them to the mainstream of American art. Based in New York City, this American watercolor movement paved the way for larger, more seriously received exhibition watercolors, and for a broad turn-of-the-century effort by public institutions - among them the Brooklyn Museum of Art - to acquire American works in the medium.
Vital forms : American art and design in the atomic age, 1940-1960 by Brooke Kamin Rapaport ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 759 libraries worldwide
"From the TWA Terminal to Cadillac tail fins to paintings by Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko, 1940 to 1960 was a groundbreaking period for the arts in America. World War II ushered in an era of unprecedented destruction and the frightening promise of atomic power, and artists and designers responded with creations that emphasized the human body and living forms - reconfiguring what was now imperiled." "This illustrated volume, published on the occasion of a major exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, presents the work of artists, architects, and designers alongside historical photographs and period advertisements. The essays in Vital Forms: American Art and Design in the Atomic Age, 1940-1960 examine fine art and commercial design of the 1940s and 1950s from an interdisciplinary perspective."--BOOK JACKET.

Royal Persian paintings : the Qajar epoch, 1785-1925 ( Book )
10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
Iranian art of the Qajar period (1779-1925) has long been neglected and is little understood. This beautifully illustrated book for the first time comprehensively examines the flowering of Persian painting and the visual arts of this period. It focuses on the growth of a remarkable tradition of life-size figural painting, virtually unseen in the Islamic world. Exquisite historic manuscripts, lacquer works, calligraphies and enamels further illuminate the subject. The Qajar Epoch carries essays by leading scholars exploring the historical and social context of the period. Detailed entries describing and interpreting a wide variety of painting and artifacts, many hitherto unseen masterpieces from museums such as the Hermitage and private collections are virtually all illustrated in color and accompanied by translations of inscriptions, technical appendices and extensive bibliographies. A unique reference work, The Qajar Epoch will appeal to both specialist of pre-modern Iran and all those interested in non-Western artistic and cultural traditions.
