Drawn from nature : the plant lithographs of Ellsworth Kelly by Richard H Axsom( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 628 libraries worldwide
"An American artist of worldwide renown, Ellsworth Kelly (born 1923) has consistently returned to nature as a subject throughout his extraordinary career. Kelly began making prints in 1964; shortly thereafter he created his first suite of plant lithographs. To date he has produced seventy-two plant lithographs." "Drawn from Nature serves as a comprehensive portfolio of the plant lithographs, accompanied by informative texts on all of these works by Richard H. Axsom. In addition, Axsom provides an insightful discussion of how the lithographs relate to the ink and pencil plant drawings that the artist has produced concurrently with them throughout his career."--Jacket
A moral compass : seventeenth and eighteenth-century painting in the Netherlands by Arthur K Wheelock( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 380 libraries worldwide
"Painting in the Netherlands during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries offers a compelling visual record of the tastes and values of a prosperous society mindful of its obligation to personal and public standards. This richly illustrated volume examines twenty-six paintings by master artists from this Golden Age of Dutch art and features essays by leading scholars who explore the various interpretations of these works within the context of their culture. A Moral Compass, published in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the Grand Rapids Art Museum, includes individual descriptive entries on each work and artist by Henry Luttikhuizen, guest curator, an introduction by Peter Sutton and essays by Arthur Wheelock, Jr., Lawrence Goedde, and Mariët Westermann. These distinguished curators and art historians provide their insights on the artistic achievement of the Netherlands during an extraordinary period of maritime dominance, material affluence, and moral purpose." -- Publisher's description
The Eames lounge chair : an icon of modern design by Martin P Eidelberg( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 290 libraries worldwide
"This book is the first in-depth study of one of the most revered pieces of American furniture, and its equally revered creators. The Eames Lounge Chair explores the design in detail, shedding new light on its development and construction, and on the role played by Ray Eames in its genesis. In situating the Lounge Chair in its cultural, social, and historical contexts, the book reveals its provocative positioning in relation to Modernism and the trajectory of twentieth century design, through its combination of traditional and modern materials, mechanical production, and hand-finishing. The personal and professional recollections of those who knew Charles and Ray Eames confirm the Lounge Chair's enduring appeal and powerful presence, from its arrival - to critical acclaim - in the mid-1950s, when it promised a more comfortable life to postwar Americans, to its latterday appearance in fiction and film as an icon of "Mid-Century Modern" design - and a key indicator of design awareness." "With more than two hundred illustrations, including a superb photographic essay and previously unpublished drawings, film stills, and personal correspondence, this book is the definitive survey of the Lounge Chair and a tribute to its remarkable creators, who, above all, "took their pleasures seriously." The Eames Lounge Chair is essential reading for anyone interested in Modernist design."--BOOK JACKET
