Dalí's optical illusions by Salvador Dalí( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,035 libraries worldwide
"This book focuses on a central but relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. The book examines Dali's use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Wardsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh."--Jacket

Winslow Homer in the 1870s : selections from the Valentine-Pulsifer collection by John Wilmerding( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 257 libraries worldwide
"Both during and since his lifetime, Winslow Homer (1836-1910) has been acknowledged as a great American master, whose productive career as a graphic artist, oil painter, and watercolorist spanned the second half of the nineteenth century into the first decade of the twentieth. All but one of the works illustrated here date from the 1870s, the central decade of Homer's life and a critical one in his development into a mature artist. These pictures comprise all the essential images of his art during this period, and some are related to key works in the artist's oeuvre. One watercolor, Berry Pickers, is arguably among the half-dozen greatest pieces of his output dating from this decade. Among the themes concerning Homer at this time were the position of blacks in American society at the close of the Civil War, women in rural and leisure settings, children or youths on the threshold of maturity, issues of sexual opposition and tension, and portraiture, the latter a subject not commonly associated with Homer's art"--Back cover
