Christen Købke : Danish master of light by David Jackson( Book )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
"Christen Købke (1819{u2013}1848) was arguably the greatest painter of Denmark{u2019}s Golden Age, the period of the nation{u2019}s supreme artistic achievement. He had the remarkable ability to invest the simplest corner of town or countryside with charm and delicacy, without resorting to the artificial rhetoric of academic traditions. He endowed ordinary people and places, and simple motifs, with a universal significance; a world in microcosm. This beautiful book, written by leading scholars of Scandinavian art, offers an overview of Købke{u2019}s achievement within its cultural context, and also highlights the most innovative aspects of his work, including outdoor sketching, his fascination with painterly immediacy in the treatment of light and atmosphere, his exquisite originality, and his experimental outlook."--Publisher's description
The Russian vision : the art of Ilya Repin by David Jackson( Book )
22 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 237 libraries worldwide
Ilya Repin (1844-1930) is a key figure of Russian nineteenth century realism, the finest and most celebrated national painter of his generation. His career spanned a period of huge cultural, social and political change which witnessed the challenge to Russian autocracy, the coming of the October Revolution and the dawn of the Soviet Union. From humble peasant beginnings Repin rose to a place of artistic preeminence and international acclaim and was the most important influence in shaping a distinctly Russian school of art. Through a series of successful but controversial works he addressed such issues as the hard lives of the peasants, the fate of revolutionary activists and Russian history, as well as painting some of the nation's greatest cultural figures, many of whom - such as Tolstoy, Musorgsky and Gorky - he counted as personal friends. A painter of immense technical and aesthetic talent, Repin's vibrant, colourful and highly topical canvases offer a fascinating panorama of all strata of life in late-Tsarist Russia and a microcosm of the issues that preoccupied Russian thought during this crucial period of historical change. This is the first book by a western art historian devoted to a full critical analysis of Repin's vast output. Drawing on a wealth of illustration from public and private collections in Russia and abroad, it combines close readings of all his major canvases, as well as many of his most intriguing but lesser known works, within the broader context of Russian art, society and culture. Written in an accessible style, this unique publication will be essential reading for academics, students and enthusiasts interested in Russian art, Slavic culture and nineteenth century painting

Nordic art : the modern breakthrough 1860-1920 by Groninger Museum( Book )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
"The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries marked a defining moment in Nordic art. From the cozy domestic landscapes of Carl Larsson to Edvard Munch's darkly beautiful The Scream, the diverse artwork of the period mirrored shifting literary and intellectual pursuits in their attempts to broaden the cultural conversation to incorporate the identities and traditions of the region. Through more than two hundred paintings, Nordic Art tells the story of this important period. In conversation with both Scandinavian culture and the contemporary art of the time, turn-of-the-century artists developed distinctly Nordic interpretations of realism, impressionism, and symbolism. The book focuses on the transitions between these forms of expression, as well as the impact of Nordic art on mainstream European art. Featuring works by well-known artists, including Carl Larsson, Edvard Munch, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, and Vilhelm Hammershøi, the book also introduces artists from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, and Finland whose contributions, though crucial, may be less familiar to international audiences. With Nordic Art, David Jackson offers the first comprehensive look at this critical period of cultural development in the Nordic countries and the extraordinary art that arose during this time."--Publisher's website
