Hudson River school : masterworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art by Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 693 libraries worldwide
"Hudson River School paintings are among America's most admired and well-loved artworks. Such artists as Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt, and Martin Johnson Heade left a powerful legacy to American art, embodying in their epic works the reverence for nature and the national idealism that prevailed during the middle of the nineteenth century. This book features fifty-seven major Hudson River School paintings from the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, recognized as the finest and most extensive in the world." "Amply illustrated, the book includes paintings by all of the major figures of the Hudson River School. Each work is beautifully reproduced in full color and is accompanied by a concise description of its significant and historical background. The book also includes artists' biographies and a brief introduction to American nineteenth-century landscape painting and the Wadsworth Atheneum's unique role in collecting Hudson River pictures."--BOOK JACKET
The impressionists at Argenteuil by Paul Hayes Tucker( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 677 libraries worldwide
"With the exception of Paris, no other site is more closely associated with the birth of impressionism than Argenteuil. Only fifteen minutes by railroad from the heart of the capital, Argenteuil was home to Claude Monet from late 1871 to early 1878, a period that was prolific and revolutionary. It was during his time in Argenteuil that Monet developed his unique vision of landscape painting, at once authentic and idyllic, suffused with light, atmosphere, and the complexities of contemporaneity. At the end of the nineteenth century, other avant-garde painters - Eugene Boudin, Gustave Caillebotte, Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley - were also drawn to Argenteuil by its beauty, its proximity to Paris, and its association with suburban recreation. Monet's amiable presence was another source of appeal, and many artists - most notably Sisley and Renoir - came to paint alongside him. The Impressionists at Argenteuil explores the fertile moment when the fascination with atmospheric effects, depictions of modern life, and lively artistic exchanges of the 1860's coalesced to become classic impressionism. An introductory essay as well as entries on fifty-two paintings by Boudin, Caillebotte, Manet, Monet, Renoir, and Sisley present the richness of the artists' individual responses to this site and the relationships that developed among them."--Jacket

Surrealism and modernism : from the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum by Eric Zafran( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 374 libraries worldwide
"Many of the works - in particular the museum's Surrealist paintings - were bought directly from the artists or from their very first exhibitions. The famed Chick Austin, director of the Atheneum from 1929 to 1944, mounted the first Surrealist exhibition in America in 1931 and proceeded to buy a work by the then relatively little known Salvador Dali. Examples by de Chirco, Cornell, Matta, Calder, and Ernst soon followed. Later, when painters such as Tanguy and his wife, Kay Sage, settled in Connecticut, they became friends with Austin, and works by them and owned by them, such as an admirable painting by Magritte, eventually came to the Atheneum. In 1934 the museum presented the first great American retrospective of Picasso, and Austin was able to buy one small neo-classical example, which over the years has been supplemented by four other Picasso paintings. Austin's successor purchased works by Stanley Spencer, Henry Moore, Maillol, and Marini

Caravaggio and his legacy by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 184 libraries worldwide
"They were known as the "Caravaggisti"--Artists who imitated the 16th-century master's earthy, realistic style or subject matter. Caravaggio's impact on his contemporaries was immediate, but in the decades that followed his brief career, hundreds of artists drew inspiration from his innovative use of intense light and shadow, the distinctly theatrical atmosphere of his paintings, his use of religious imagery, and his preference for painting directly from life. This companion volume to an exhibition features works by Caravaggio and more than 30 other artists. The book displays an amazing cross section of genre, portraiture, historical subjects, and religious scenes. Bringing together previously unconnected painters from Italy, Northern Europe, France, and Spain, this remarkable collection brilliantly illustrates Caravaggio's enormous effect on the development of 17th-century European painting"--

Marsden Hartley by Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
"Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) was a painter, poet, writer, and pioneer of American modernism. Born in Lewiston, Maine, he lived a peripatetic life, working in Paris, Berlin, New York, Mexico, New Mexico, Bermuda, and elsewhere before returning to Maine in 1934. This superbly illustrated book encompasses the extraordinary range and depth of Hartley's creative output. Some one-hundred and five of his works - landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and abstract paintings - demonstrate the visual power for which Hartley gained acclaim as well as the development of his art over the course of his thirty-five year career." "The book gathers together the most recent scholarship on Hartley's work, discussing such topics as the artist's working methods, his self-portraits, the influence of Cezanne on his work, and Hartley's attitudes toward Native Americans. A chronology of his life is included, and each painting is accompanied by a full catalogue entry." "This book also serves as the catalogue of an exhibition organized by the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art and traveling to the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City."--BOOK JACKET
