Navigating the West : George Caleb Bingham and the river by Nenette Luarca-Shoaf( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879) moved to Missouri as a child and began painting the scenes of Missouri life, for which he is now famous, in the 1840s. This book explores how Bingham's iconic river paintings reveal the cultural and economic significance of the massive Mississippi and Missouri waterways to mid-19th-century society. Focusing on the artist's working methods and preparatory drawings, the book also explores Bingham's representations of people and places and situates these images in a dialogue with other contemporary depictions of the region. Of particular note are two landmark essays investigating Bingham's creative process through comparisons of infrared images of 17 of his paintings with both his preparatory drawings and the completed works, casting new light on his previously understudied process. Technical analysis of the artist's lauded masterpiece, Fur Traders Descending the Missouri, reveals Bingham's considerable revisions to the painting. In the concluding essay, the 20th-century revival of the artist's work is discussed within the context of American Regionalism and in light of a shifting sequence of narratives about the nation's past and future.

Archibald Motley : jazz age modernist by Archibald John Motley( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring more than 140 colour illustrations, this catalogue accompanies the first full-scale survey in 20 years of the work of Archibald John Motley, Jr. (1891-1981), a master colourist and radical interpreter of urban culture. Motley's brilliant yet idiosyncratic paintings - simultaneously expressionist and social realist - have captured worldwide attention with their rainbow-hued, syncopated compositions. The catalogue includes the artist's depictions of African American life in early-twentieth-century Chicago, as well as his portraits and archetypes, portrayals of African American life in Jazz Age Paris, and renderings of 1950s Mexico
Art and appetite : American painting, culture, and cuisine( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Food has always been an important source of knowledge about culture and society. Art and Appetite takes a fascinating new look at depictions of food in American art, demonstrating that the artists' representations of edibles offer thoughtful reflection on the cultural, political, economic, and social moments in which they were created. Using food as an emblem, artists were able to both celebrate and critique their society, expressing ideas relating to politics, race, class, gender, and commerce. Focusing on the late 18th century through the Pop artists of the 20th century, this lively publication investigates the many meanings and interpretations of eating in America. Richly illustrated, Art and Appetite features still life and trompe l'oeil painting, sculpture, and other works by such celebrated artists as William Merritt Chase, John Singleton Copley, Elizabeth Paxton, Norman Bel Geddes, Stuart Davis, Edward Hopper, Alice Neel, Wayne Thiebaud, Roy Lichtenstein, and many more. Essays by leading experts address topics including the horticultural and botanical underpinnings of still-life paintings, the history of alcohol consumption in the United States, Thanksgiving, and food in the world of Pop art. In addition to the images and essays, this book includes a selection of 18th- and 19th-century recipes for all-American dishes including molasses cake, stewed terrapin, rice blancmange, and roast calf's head."--

Plain pictures : images of the American prairie by Joni Kinsey( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Bountifully illustrated with 160 years of artistic responses to both the vast grasslands and agricultural expanses of the Midwest, Plain Pictures is the first book to address representations of the midwestern Prairie as a genre distinct from American western art. In a wide-ranging narrative, Joni Kinsey argues that images of the grassland, far from being plain, offer a paradox of their own: the significance of the subject is equaled only by the struggle to express it

Samuel F.B. Morse's Gallery of the Louvre and the art of invention by Terra Foundation for American Art( Book )

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

"Samuel F.B. Morse's (1791-1872) large-scale painting Gallery of the Louvre (1831-33) is one of the most significant, and enigmatic, works of early-19th-century American art. It is also one of the last works Morse painted before turning his attention to the invention of the telegraph and Morse code. Gallery of the Louvre, owned by the Terra Foundation for American Art, was the focus of three separate international symposia held in 2011-13 at the Yale University Art Gallery, the National Gallery of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. This collection of essays, carefully drawn from the proceedings of these scholarly sessions, brings together fresh insights by academics, curators, and conservators, who focus on the painting's visual components and the social and historical contexts that make it such a rich, complex work. The book accompanies a multi-year tour of the painting to prominent museums around the country"--[Note de l'éditeur]
