A studio of her own : women artists in Boston, 1870-1940 by Erica E Hirshler( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 533 libraries worldwide
"A Studio of Her Own tells the interwoven stories of some forty women artists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, exploring, in the author's words, "both the individual lives and talents of Boston women artists and the integrated relationships that enabled many of them to excel."" "No one category or medium can encompass these careers, which range from the paintings of Ellen Day Hale and the sculptures of Katharine Lane Weems to the photographs of Sarah Sears and the innovative book designs of Sarah Wyman Whitman. Included as well are lengthy discussions of the importance of the Arts and Crafts movement; the conflicts presented by concerns of marriage and family (as well as the relative freedom offered by the "Boston marriage" between two women); the role of the MFA School and of such key instructors as Frank W. Benson, William Rimmer, and Edmund Tarbell; and the ways in which societal changes have influenced the art itself. Perhaps more than anything, this is a story of community and resourcefulness, in which some artists adopted "suitable" media and subject matter - still lifes, arts and crafts - and made them their own, while others campaigned for the right to work in such traditionally "male" domains as monumental sculpture, and still others braved the scandal of painting from live nude models, traveling abroad to study their art, or showing their work on a national scale." "Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, A Studio of Her Own is the definitive work on an important but little-known moment in America's cultural history"--BOOK JACKET

Edward Hopper by Edward Hopper( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and French and held by 51 libraries worldwide
"Spanning the entirety of Hopper's career, but with particular emphasis on his heyday in the twenties, thirties, and forties, Edward Hopper highlights his greatest achievements while discussing such topics as his absorption of European influences, critical reactions to his work, the relation of realism to modernism, his fascination with architecture, his depiction of women, and the struggle in his last years to produce original works. Illustrated with more than 150 of his oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, and including essays by several noted scholars in the field and an extensive chronology and bibliography, this is the most comprehensive volume on Hopper to be published in many years."--BOOK JACKET
