Monet in the '90s : the series paintings by Paul Hayes Tucker( Book )

Winslow Homer by Nicolai Cikovsky( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,534 libraries worldwide
The book discusses and reproduces more than two hundred paintings, watercolors, and drawings that span Homer's career, all of which are discussed in entries by Cikovsky and Kelly. It begins with the Civil War paintings that first brought Homer's remarkable artistic mentality to public attention, in which he movingly expressed the profound implications the war held for the nation. Homer's interest in national themes is further explored in his works of the later 1860s and 1870s, which embraced a wide spectrum of American life. His shift toward more idealized and heroic imagery and his withdrawal to a solitary life at Prout's Neck, Maine, in the 1880s are discussed as turning points leading to the great achievements of his last two decades. After considering his beautiful late watercolors of the Tropics and the Adirondacks, and his monumental Prout's Neck seascapes, the book concludes with a reassessment of the tragic, almost visionary paintings of his last years. The book is also the catalogue for a major exhibition on Homer's works, opening at the National Gallery of Art on 15 October 1995 and traveling to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
John Singer Sargent by John Singer Sargent( Book )
6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,399 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

Monet in the 20th century by Claude Monet( Book )

By the beginning of the twentieth century, Claude Monet was a figure of national importance in France - the patriarch of impressionism and the country's foremost landscape painter. This richly illustrated book examines for the first time the body of work that Monet completed from 1900 until his death in 1926, a period during which he was enormously productive, increasingly wealthy, and ever more venerated
Van Gogh face to face : the portraits by Vincent van Gogh( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,213 libraries worldwide
"Published to accompany a major touring exhibition, this book brings together for the first time the great portraits from all periods of the painter's life. The story begins with the relatively unknown body of vivid, carefully executed drawings of orphans and paupers produced in The Hague when he was a young man. It continues with van Gogh's time in Paris, where the influence of Impressionism, Japanese art, and contemporaries like Gauguin and Bernard led him to produce some of his most famous images." "Each work is reproduced and set in context by leading scholars. Individually, their essays focus on particular groups of work, shedding new light on van Gogh's aims and methods. Collectively, they establish the centrality of portraiture to his oeuvre."--Jacket

"The art that is life" : the arts & crafts movement in America, 1875-1920 by Wendy Kaplan( Book )
12 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and held by 896 libraries worldwide
"This paperback edition is a reissue of the classic book on the American Arts and Crafts movement, one of the most significant and far-reaching movements in American art. It is also one of the least understood. It transformed not only how objects looked but how people looked at objects. It changed American attitudes toward design and the home, and compelled people to think about the relationship of art to everyday life. The results can be seen in such diverse styles as Gothic, Oriental, Aesthetic, Colonial Revival, Native American, Mission, and Art Nouveau." ""The Art that is Life" was initially published in conjunction with a 1987 exhibition originated by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the first to synthesize the decorative arts and architecture of this period in America. Works include such objects as furniture, glass, silver, ceramics, textiles, wallpaper, books, and architectural drawings. With eight essays by distinguished scholars and more than 300 illustrations, this book serves not only as a classic reference on American design reform but also as a celebration of the era that so unified the "artful" with the "useful.""--Jacket
How to care for works of art on paper by Francis W Dolloff( Book )

David Hockney : portraits by Marco Livingstone( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 873 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

10 editions published in 2007 in English and French and held by 855 libraries worldwide
"Spanning the entirety of Hopper's career, but with particular emphasis on his heyday in the twenties, thirties, and forties, Edward Hopper highlights his greatest achievements while discussing such topics as his absorption of European influences, critical reactions to his work, the relation of realism to modernism, his fascination with architecture, his depiction of women, and the struggle in his last years to produce original works. Illustrated with more than 150 of his oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, and including essays by several noted scholars in the field and an extensive chronology and bibliography, this is the most comprehensive volume on Hopper to be published in many years."--BOOK JACKET
