John Singer Sargent by John Singer Sargent( Book )
9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,419 libraries worldwide
"The remarkable portraits for which John Singer Sargent is most famous are only one aspect of a career that included landscapes, watercolors, figure subjects, and murals. Even within portraiture, his style ranged from bold experiments to studied formality. And the subjects of his paintings were as varied as his styles, including the leaders of fashionable society, rural laborers, city streets, remote mountains, and the front lines of World War I. This book surveys and evaluates the extraordinary range of Sargent's work, and reproduces 155 of his paintings in color. It accompanies a spectacular international exhibition - the first major retrospective of the artist's career since the memorial exhibitions that followed his death." "Richard Ormond presents a biographical sketch and, in a second essay, reviews Sargent's development as an artist. Mary Crowford Volk explores his thirty-year involvement with painting murals - in particular the works at the Boston Public Library and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts that Sargent regarded as his greatest achievement."--Jacket
David Hockney : a retrospective by David Hockney( Book )
9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 1,298 libraries worldwide
"David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most significant artists exploring and pushing the boundaries of figurative art today. Hockney has been engaged with portraiture since his teenage years, when he painted Portrait of my Father (1955), and his self-portraits and depictions of family, lovers, and friends represent an intimate visual diary of the artist's life." "This illustrated book examines Hockney's portraits in all media - painting, drawing, photographs, and prints - and has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. Featured subjects include members of Hockney's family and private circle, as well as portraits of such artists and cultural figures as Lucian Freud, Francesco Clemente, R. B. Kitaj, Helmut Newton, Lawrence Weschler, and W. H. Auden. The authors reveal how Hockney's creative development and concerns about representation can be traced through his portrait work: from his battle with naturalism to his experimentation with and later rejection of photography, and from his recent camera lucida drawings to his return to painting from life in oil." "Featuring more than 250 works from the past fifty years, David Hockney Portraits illustrates not only the fascinating range of Hockney's creative practice but also the unique and cyclical nature of his artistic concerns."--BOOK JACKET
Willem de Kooning : paintings by Marla Prather( Book )
9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,243 libraries worldwide
One of America's greatest painters, Willem de Kooning is a masterful colourist whose huge canvases are charged with enormous energy. The publication of this beautiful book, which presents eighty of de Kooning's finest paintings and painted works on paper from the early 1940s to the 1980s, coincides with the artist's ninetieth birthday in the spring of 1994. Organized thematically and chronologically, the book focuses on de Kooning's most noteworthy and original painted achievements: portraits from the early 1940s; black-and-white abstractions from 1945 to 1949 that established de Kooning as a leader of the abstract expressionist movement; monumental cityscape paintings from 1949 and 1950; key selections from the notorious Woman series of 1945 to 1954; highway and pastoral landscape abstractions from 1954 to 1960; lush figures in landscapes from 1966 to 1973; landscapes from the 1970s; and later expressive and calligraphic "tableaux." Drawing on new archival sources, essays by David Sylvester, Richard Shiff, and Marla Prather reassess de Kooning's critical status, examine his complex and evocative painting techniques, place him in the context of other artists and art movements of his era, and discuss the fundamental impact of his art on subsequent generations. The book serves as the catalogue for a major retrospective of de Kooning's work that will be on exhibit at the National Gallery of Art in Washington from 8 May 1994 to 5 September 1994, the Metropolitan Museum in New York from 6 October 1994 to 8 January 1995, and the Tate Gallery in London from 15 February 1995 to 7 May 1995

Bonnard by Sarah Whitfield( Book )
16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 988 libraries worldwide
"Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) is among the most enigmatic of the great masters of twentieth-century painting. In this book, Sarah Whitfield and John Elderfield bring a new understanding to his deeply serious, complex paintings." "Published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London, and at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Bonnard features two important essays based on much fresh research. Sarah Whitfield, curator of the exhibition, discusses the legacy of the Symbolism of Bonnard's early years and the way in which his acceptance of nature's surrender to time finds expression in the grand elegiac paintings of the later period. John Elderfield, curator of the exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, writes about Bonnard's awareness of the complexities of visual perception, and how crucial an understanding of this is to fully comprehending his stature as a painter."--Jacket

Sir Edwin Landseer by Richard Ormond( Book )
13 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 849 libraries worldwide
The Pre-Raphaelites by Tate Gallery( Book )
17 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 830 libraries worldwide
"The Pre-Raphaelites first appeared in 1984 as the catalogue of the highly successful exhibition mounted by the Tate Gallery that year. The book, which has been out of print ever since, remains the most comprehensive account of this important movement in British art. It concentrates on the vital years from 1848 (when the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was formed) to 1860 but also includes a substantial groups of works from the following twenty years, a period in which the movement took new directions. The full range of Pre-Raphaelite painting is represented, from the 'hard-edge' style of Millais's early work to the sensuousness of Rossetti's and Burne-Jones's painting in the 1870s."--Jacket

George Stubbs, 1724-1806 by George Stubbs( Book )
30 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 757 libraries worldwide
"Stubbs was for too long under-valued by the label 'Mr. Stubbs the Horse Painter'. He is now recognized as deserving an equal place with his contemporaries Gainsborough and Reynolds in the foremost rank of British art. He is the most original and searching of all animal painters, whether his subject is a broodmare and foal, a monkey, or a poodle in a punt; he is also a realistic and perceptive portraitist of human beings, as much a master of the art of class distinction in eighteenth-century England as he is of the anatomy of the horse. Above all, he is a master of design, able to translate faithful observations from nature into unforgettable images. This is by far the most fully illustrated book on Stubbs available. All the works in Tate Gallery's George Stubbs exhibition of 1984-1985 are reproduced in colour, including some which have never before been reproduced, and focusing on many fascinating details in his work."--Provided by publisher
