The Cubist epoch by Douglas Cooper( Book )

21 editions published between 1970 and 1998 in English and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book as first published to accompany a major exhibition curated by the author at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in 1970. Douglas Cooper had himself known well the principal protagonists in the Cubist Movement, owned works by them and written extensively on the subject. The exhibition was mounted when many of the artists, dealers, writers and collectors who created and furthered the development of Cubism were still alive to act as primary documentary sources. It brought together from the collections of Europe and America Cubist paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints to present for the first time a vivid compendium of Cubism as an historic and aesthetic achievement which transformed the visual world of the 20th century. This re-issue of the book not only presents a record of an epoch-making show, but provides an authoritative, informative and lively introduction to all aspects of Cubist art by its foremost historian

Winslow Homer by Nicolai Cikovsky( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,501 WorldCat member 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

The Hours of Catherine of Cleves by John Plummer( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When this volume first appeared in 1966, it was celebrated for its extraordinary beauty. Now, more than thirty-five years since its first publication, it is made available once again. Illustrating one of the great art treasures of the world. The Hours of Catherine of Cleves is a fifteenth-century illuminated manuscript containing a series of some of the most beautiful illustrations of the Bible ever made. Many of the great scenes from the Old Testament and many more from the New Testament are included, along with the Stations of the Cross and portraits of the saints." "The work of an unidentified Dutch master painter, the manuscript was made for Catherine of Cleves on the occasion of her marriage to the Duke of Guelders. All 157 surviving miniatures are reproduced to actual size and in exquisite color with gold, together with three samples of the pages containing Latin prayers. Page after page reveals the elaborate program and rich illumination of the original. The images show an artist increasing in skill, relying in his earlier work on tradition and later emerging as an independent artist of bold, clear colors, dynamic brushwork, and lively imagination." "Each page is accompanied by descriptive commentary by John Plummer. His introduction discusses the development of the Book of Hours as a liturgical form in general, and the history of the Cleves Hours specifically, and describes the place it holds in the history of Northern painting."--Jacket

El Greco by David Davies( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: A much anticipated, wide-ranging survey of works by one of the world's greatest artists. El Greco (1541-1614), born Domenikos Theotokopoulos, was one of the most fascinating and distinctive artists of the sixteenth century. His works are immediately recognizable for their brilliant colors, elongated figures, and spiritual intensity. Initially trained in Crete, in around 1567 El Greco moved to Italy where he purportedly studied with Titian. A decade later he is documented in Toledo (south of Madrid), and he spent the rest of his long life in Spain. His paintings and writings offer a thoughtful, frequently inspired response to the varied environments in which he worked--and they reveal that he was deeply engaged with the religious and artistic thinking of his times. This lavishly illustrated book--the first comprehensive English-language publication on El Greco in many years--addresses the full range of the artist's work in painting and sculpture, from his Byzantine icons to his late altarpieces. It considers his personality from both a religious and intellectual point of view, and presents the artist's religious, mythological, genre, landscape, and portrait works, providing the historical context in which they were made. El Greco is the catalogue for an exhibition organized jointly by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the National Gallery, London. The exhibition opens in New York in October 2003, and moves to London in February 2004
From the lands of the Scythians : ancient treasures from the museums of the U.S.S.R., 3000 B.C.-100 B.C. : the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book chronicles the beautiful exhibit of Scythian and Sarmatian treasures that travelled to New York and to L.A. in 1975. The Scythians and Sarmatians were the original peoples who inspired the Greek legends of the centaurs and the Amazons -- the mounted Scythian warriors seeming to be one with their horses, and the female warriors of the Sarmatians stood out so much that the legend has discarded the men of the Sarmatian tribe. Both groups lived in the area bordered by the Dneipr and Ural Rivers to the east and west respectively, and by the Black Sea, Caucasus Mountains, and the Caspian Sea to the south
