The great experiment : George Washington and the American Republic by John H Rhodehamel( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 820 libraries worldwide
To most Americans, George Washington is a remote figured encased in myth, more a monument than a man. This book brings him vividly to life once again--a man who was born a loyal subject of the British Crown and became the leader of a radical revolution, a victorious military leader who relinquished the trappings of power to return to farming, a reluctant statesman who forged the institutions of a popular government that have endured for two centuries. The text is enhanced by illustrations that reproduce an array of original documents, contemporary portraits, artifacts, and personal memorabilia of Washington and her family.--From publisher description
Painted prayers : the book of hours in medieval and Renaissance art by Roger S Wieck( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 799 libraries worldwide
"In Painted Prayers, the two key elements of Books of Hours are explored: the glorious illuminations and the texts. 107 color plates reproduce stellar pages from Books of Hours that range from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major manuscript-producing countries of Europe: France, Belgium, The Netherlands, England, Italy, and Spain. Mr. Wieck's text offers explanations and translations of key passages from the various "Hours," psalms, Gospel lessons, hymns, litanies, and private prayers found in a typical Book of Hours. The Book of Hours is explored from illuminated manuscripts to the early printed editions of the same texts, leading us from the piety of the Gothic era into the culture of the Renaissance."--Jacket

Saul Steinberg : illuminations by Joel Smith( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 756 libraries worldwide
"Best known for his barbed and brilliant art for The New Yorker, Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) did much more. He executed public murals, designed fabrics and stage sets, was an inventive collagist and printmaker, and turned his magic touch to the fields of painting, sculpture, advertising, and even wartime propaganda. This is the first comprehensive look at Steinberg's contribution to twentieth-century art, which was that of a modern-day illuminator, putting word and image in play to create art that spoke to the eyes, and minds, or readers." "An introduction by poet Charles Simic tracks the origins of Steinberg's darkly comic sensibility in the "Balkan bazaar" of the artist's native Romania. Joel Smith shows how architectural training and an early rise to fame as a cartoonist in fascist-era Milan honed Steinberg's gift for subtle graphic invention, and explores why one of the most visible, prolific, potent, and cosmopolitan careers in postwar American art has so thoroughly evaded serious study. Tracing the evolving motives that underlie Steinberg's multi-layered activity, this volume also raises fundamental questions about the historiography of modernism and the vexed status of "the middlebrow avant-garde" in an age of museum-bound art." "Previously unseen sketches, documents, and printed matter from the artist's papers illustrate the essay, career chronology, and entries for the works featured in this important book."--Jacket

Drawing Surrealism by Leslie Jones( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 583 libraries worldwide
"Drawing, often considered a minor art, was central to Surrealism from the very beginning. Automatic drawing, exquisite cadavers, and frottage are just a few of the techniques invented by Surrealists as means to tap into the subconscious realm. While previous books have examined the connection between drawings and Surrealist paintings, Drawing Surrealism is the first to recognize the medium as a fundamental form of Surrealist expression, and to explore its impact on other media as well. Surrealist collage, photography, and even paintings are presented in the context of drawing as a metaphor for innovation and experimentation. It is also the first book to encompass a wide array of artists on a global scale--from the great figures in Surrealist history to lesser-known Surrealists from Japan, Central Europe, and the Americas, where the movement had a profound and lasting effect. In addition to brilliant reproductions of drawings and other works by more than 100 artists, this volume also includes a substantial historical essay by the exhibition's curator as well as informative essays by leading scholars. This groundbreaking book offers a deep understanding of the techniques and concerns that made Surrealism such an intimate perceptual revolution"--Provided by publisher

The Painted page : Italian Renaissance book illumination, 1450-1550 by Royal Academy of Arts (Great Britain)( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 569 libraries worldwide
137 manuscripts, printed books with hand-painted illustrations and single pages are illustrated in full color, ranging from small prayer books to large choir books, and from Greek, Roman, and Italian literature to collections of fables and historical treatises. Many of these volumes were commissioned by powerful wealthy, and discriminating patrons who included members of the ruling Italian families as well as cardinals and popes and many of whom were also prominent bibliophiles. Among other fascinating issues, the mechanics of patronage, patterns of production, and formation of libraries are discussed in three essays and in the catalogue entries - the latter divided into eight thematic sections - written by noted specialists in the history of Renaissance manuscripts and books. And, of course, we are introduced to the artists themselves - their working habits, characteristic styles, and interrelationships
The Codex Huygens and Leonardo da Vinci's art theory; the Pierpont Morgan Library, Codex M.A. 1139 by Erwin Panofsky( Book )
10 editions published between 1940 and 1976 in English and held by 562 libraries worldwide
Considered to be the work of Leonardo when it was acquired by Constantine Huygens in 1690, this illustrated manuscript does not in fact contain a single orignal drawing by Leonardo da Vinci. Its authorship still in question, this mid sixteenth-century work has been attributed to, among others, Aurelio Luini, Girolamo Figino, and Carlo Urbino
