"In this study David Rosand shows how early American painters transformed themselves from provincial followers of the established traditions of Europe into some of the most innovative and influential artists in the world. Moving beyond simple descriptions of what distinguishes American art from other movements and forms, The Invention of Painting in America explores not only the status of artists and their personal relationship to their work but also the larger dialogue between the artist and society. Rosand looks to the intensely studied portraits of America's early painters - especially Copley and Eakins and the landscapes of Homer and Inness, among others - each of whom grappled with conflicting cultural attitudes and different expressive styles in order to reinvent the art of painting. He discusses the work of Davis, Gorky, de Kooning, Pollock, Rothko, and Motherwell and the subjects and themes that engaged them."--BOOK JACKET

Drawing acts : studies in graphic expression and representation by David Rosand ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Drawing Acts is about drawing, as both art and act. Taking the study of drawings beyond the traditional agenda of connoisseurship, David Rosand explores the significance of the making of drawings, the meaning in the line of the draftsman, and the re-creative dimension of critical response. The book focuses on drawings by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Piranesi, Tiepolo, and Picasso, as well as on the history and theory of the medium itself. It seeks to establish new foundations for the criticism and appreciation of drawing, which is generally considered the most revealing record of artistic creativity, offering the most direct expression of the artistic self."--BOOK JACKET

Myths of Venice : the figuration of a state by David Rosand ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this work, David Rosand explores the imagery Venice developed to represent the legends of its origins and legitimacy, its divine favor and holy purpose. These themes found public expression throughout the city: in the basilica of San Marco and the Ducal Palace, at the Rialto and in the decoration of the confraternities, and in the monuments of the Piazza, the Loggetta, and the Libreria di San Marco. Indeed, among the most significant political resources of the Most Serene Republic were the imagination and talents of her greatest artists - Gentile and Giovanni Bellini, Carpaccio, Titian, Jacopo Sansovino, Tintoretto, and Veronese - who gave enduring visual form to the myths of Venice." "Myths of Venice is concerned not only with the official iconography of state per se, but with the ways in which such imagery resonates within a culture, the ways in which visual motifs acquire an aura of association and allusion dependent upon a network of shared values and habits of interpretation."--BOOK JACKET

Paolo Veronese : a master and his workshop in Renaissance Venice by Virginia Brilliant ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Paolo Veronese (1528-1588) is recognized as one of the giants of Venetian Renaissance painting. His artistic production was richly varied, extending from imposing altarpieces to smaller religious paintings for private clients, from grand portraits to sensual episodes drawn from the classical tradition. He was also an outstanding draughtsman, and his graphic oeuvre randed from preliminary sketches to highly finished chiaroscuro sheets. Produced to accompany an exhibition celebrating the artist at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, this magnificently illustrated book displays Veronese's extraordinary versatility and examines his artistic practice, concentrating on works from American and Canadian museums and private collections. For a sixteenth-century painter, many of whose works are in fresco or on enormous canvases still in situ, Veronese is unusually well represented in North America. At the same time, the broad spectrum of Veronese as a painter and draughtsman has not been available to American audiences in over two decades. This publication, with contributions by an international team of experts and focusing attention on little-known works as well as acknowledged masterpieces, constitutes a major contribution to Veronese studies."--Jacket

Véronèse by David Rosand ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Révéler l'intelligence picturale de Véronèse dans toute sa profondeur et son originalité, tel est l'objet de ce livre. L'éclat et l'inventivité de la touche de l'artiste lui ont valu une réputation solidement enracinée de splendide décorateur, de maître de l'élégance du coloris et des surfaces spectaculaires mais David Rosand désire aller au-delà de cet aspect superficiel et analyser la nature véritable de l'art de Véronèse, qui mêle étroitement forme et contenu. Sa virtuosité tehnique n'est plus à démontrer. Une exploration critique centrée sur ses peintures prises une à une débouche sur une vision enrichie de l'oeuvre peint du plus jeune membre du grand triumvirat des peintres vénitiens du XVIe siècle (Titien, Tintoret et lui). David Rosand, le plus grand spécialiste de Véronèse, qui a participé à la restauration des peintures de San Sebastiano - l'église vénitienne du peintre -, démontre toute l'ampleur de cet oeuvre, depuis les débuts de l'artiste dans sa Vérone natale, jusqu'à son triomphe à Venise
