Art in a mirror : the counterproofs of Mary Cassatt by Mary Cassatt( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 360 libraries worldwide
This volume is a catalog published to accompany an exhibition of the works of American painter and printmaker Marry Cassatt (1844-1926). The exhibition showcased a previously unseen inventory of 48 counterproofs done by Cassatt around 1905-1915. Counterproofs are essentially monotypes, created by a damp sheet of paper laid over a chalk or pastel drawing and run through a press. Pigment lifts from the original, yielding a pale mirror image. Because so little pigment is transferred, individual hatchings pale into veils of melded color. There is a purity and economy to these images, testimony to what little means are needed to suggest weight and volume

Frederic Edwin Church : romantic landscapes and seascapes by Frederic Edwin Church( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
"This catalogue, published to accompany a major exhibition of notable landscapes and seascapes by Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900) at Adelson Galleries and Meredith Long & Company, offers a rich sampling of the artist's five decades of creative production. The works in the exhibition, reproduced here in full color, constitute a veritable travelogue of the places Church visited over the course of his illustrious career, including much of New York State and New England, Labrador, Central and South America, Greece, Turkey, and the Holy Land. Among the paintings presented are some major canvases and oil sketches from private collections that have rarely been on public view."--Jacket

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 61 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
