With impressive new scholarship and little-known, color-drenched images, this beautiful book reveals an unexpected and highly engaging aspect of John Singer Sargent's remarkable career. Although most renowned for his dazzling society portraits, Sargent took greatest pleasure in escaping his studio to paint out of doors. In the past, his far-flung expeditions have been dismissed as little more than tourist jaunts
Sargent's Venice by Warren Adelson( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 491 libraries worldwide
John Singer Sargent returned to Venice many times during his life, endlessly fascinated with this enchanting city. In paintings filled with vivid colors and dazzling light, he sought to capture its vitality and unique ambience, often working while afloat in a gondola. This gorgeously illustrated book presents nearly seventy of Sargent’s oil and watercolor paintings of Venice, many of them famous but others only rarely seen. The book also contains fascinating new photographs of actual sites depicted in Sargent’s paintings. Sargent’s early works in Venice were created in 1880-1882, and he undertook a second, larger body of work in the city during visits from 1900 to 1913. His responses to Venice - its local figures, its buildings and waterways, its extraordinary light - reflect his changing interests over time as well as his lifelong ability to extend his own reach as a creative artist. The book considers various aspects of Sargent’s work and milieu in a series of informative essays by international scholars. They discuss the evolution of Sargent’s style, the topography of his work in Venice, his connections with Henry James and other Americans in Venice, Italian artists in Venice in the nineteenth century, and American artists in Venice in the nineteenth century

Winfred Rembert : memories of my youth by Winfred Rembert( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
"A self-taught artist, Rembert grew up working in the cotton fields of Cuthbert, Georgia, in the 1950's. He was arrested after a 1960's civil rights march and survived a near-lynching before serving seven years in jail. It was in jail, creating wallets next to another inmate, that he first learned to hand-tool leather. Years later, at the suggestion of his wife, Rembert integrated storytelling and the tales of his youth into tableaux on sheets of tanned leather. He soon attracted the attention and support of Jock Reynolds, Director of the Yale University Art Gallery, who exhibited his work next to that of renowned African-American artist and educator Hale Woodruff. Rembert often begins his pictures with drawings to work out detailed patterns. When the stories are carved and tooled into the leather, his images take on texture and depth, and finally he paints the surfaces in vivid dyes. The surface of the piece becomes an important aspect of the composition. The final images offer a flamboyant narrative of life in the still-segregated South of the mid-twentieth century. Rembert draws heavily from his own experience, populating his paintings with pool sharks, reverends, midwives and chain gangs—all of which come to life with the richness and vitality of oral tradition. The scenes range from cotton fields to night life. Each is as finely detailed as it is emotionally powerful."

Seven deadly sins & recent works by Jamie Wyeth( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
The exhibition of Jamie Wyeth’s 2007 series of paintings, The Seven Deadly Sins, is a rare example of a contemporary artist taking on a subject long associated with the history of Christian art. The subject’s focus is human frailty, specifically the sins of pride, envy, anger, greed, sloth, gluttony, and lust, codified as the seven deadly sins in the writings of the late thirteenth-century Dominican, Saint Thomas Aquinas. Dante dealt with the theme in his famed Divine Comedy and Chaucer in his The Canterbury Tales, as did Shakespeare’s contemporary, playwright Christopher Marlowe. Perhaps the most famous painted treatment of the subject is that of the sixteenth-century Dutch painter, Hieronymous Bosch. By the twentieth century, however, the subject had disappeared from artists’ repertoires, only to be revived in the 1930s by the playwright Bertolt Brecht, and choreographer George Balanchine.It was Cadmus’ surreal 1945-49 paintings of the seven deadly sins that inspired Jamie Wyeth, decades after first seeing them, to do his own series of paintings on the theme. Wyeth’s take on the subject, however, is characteristically his own – the sins are acted out by seagulls, birds the artist has observed for decades along the coast of Maine and from his studios on Monhegan and Southern islands. As he noted in an interview for the exhibition, “gulls are nasty birds, filled with their own jealousies and rivalries….” The exhibition will focus on these seven paintings, accompanied by written and visual materials that place Wyeth’s work within the subject’s long iconographic history
