Van Gogh to Kandinsky : symbolist landscape in Europe 1880-1910 by Rodolphe Rapetti( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A groundbreaking collaboration between the National Galleries of Scotland, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Finnish National Gallery, this catalogue accompanies the first exhibition dedicated to landscapes by the Symbolists, the innovative movement whose artists took a more imaginative and emotional approach to painting and embraced themes such as music, nationalism, science and modernity. It covers a wide range of artists, from forerunners of symbolism, like Bocklin and Whistler, to Mondrian and Kandinsky, who provided the impulse for major 20th-century movements, such as surrealism and abstraction. Exhibition: Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (24.2.-17.6.2012); The National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh (14.7.-14.10.2012); Ateneum Art Museum, Finnish National Gallery, Helsinki, Finland (16.11.2012-17.2.2013)
Christen Købke : Danish master of light by David Jackson( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christen Købke (1819-1848) was arguably the greatest painter of Denmark's Golden Age, the period of the nation'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'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
Beyond Caravaggio by Letizia Treves( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Italian painter known as Caravaggio (1571-1610) claims a place among the most revolutionary figures in the history of art. His intense naturalism, almost brutal realism, and dramatic use of light had a wide impact on European painters, including Orazio Gentileschi, Valentin de Boulogne, and Gerrit van Honthorst. Each of Caravaggio's followers absorbed something different from his work, propagating his stylistic legacy across Europe. In this extensively illustrated catalogue, Letizia Treves introduces the international Caravaggesque movement and traces the distinct artistic personalities of its leading players. Even now, Caravaggio's name overshadows the other talented artists who adopted his approach to narrative painting: the use of theatrical lighting to illuminate a story encapsulated in a single, dramatic moment. Treves explains the innovative and unifying features of these painters' work and how, despite resistance to their style and subject matter, many outstanding Caravaggesque pictures found their way into important collections
Tracey Emin : 20 years by Tracey Emin( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracey Emin is one of the most famous artists working in Britain today. Born in London in 1963, she grew up in Margate and experienced a difficult childhood. Her teenage years provided the inspiration for much of her later work, which is autobiographical and often shockingly frank. This book accompanies her first retrospective exhibition in the UK, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and covers the full range of her work over the past twenty years, including embroidered blankets, paintings, sculptures, films, neons, and drawings. It features a biographical introduction by Patrick Elliott, Chief Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and a text by the artist Julian Schnabel."--Jacket

Jean-Etienne Liotard, 1702-1789 by Jean-Etienne Liotard( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean-Etienne Liotard was renowned during the eighteenth century for his exquisite portraits and works in pastel, not to mention his outlandish Oriental garb. He painted some of the most significant rulers and aristocrats of Europe, including several members of the British royal family. A peripatetic artist who worked in the Levant as well as major European capitals, Liotard was born in Geneva and studied in Paris before travelling to Italy and then on to Constantinople in the train of British aristocratic Grand Tourists. There he painted the local residents as well as the British community, and adopted the eccentric style of dress that, when he later visited London, caused him to become known as 'The Turk'. This volume illuminates the career of this remarkable but now little-known artist, showcasing a variety of his extraordinary works, including portraits, drawings and enamels

Francis Bacon : portraits and heads by Francis Bacon( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Bacon is one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. Born in Dublin in 1909, he spent most of his life in London. From the 1940s until his death in 1992 he worked consistently as a figurative painter, ignoring other passing trends in art. Throughout his career, the human form was the dominant subject in his work. His paintings of friends, lovers and other artists go far beyond simple likenesses: rather they are portraits of complex physical and psychological states." "In the early 1960s Bacon began a series of small portrait heads of those closest to him. Often grouped in threes - a format that gave the artist an opportunity to show different aspects of the sitter's character - Bacon's small heads reveal a rich vein of intimacy in his art. These private, almost devotional, portraits are brought together for the first time in this book and the exhibition which it accompanies."--Jacket
The intimate portrait : drawings, miniatures and pastels from Ramsay to Lawrence by Stephen Lloyd( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book accompanies the first major exhibition held in Britain to focus on the more intimate types of Georgian and Regency portraiture. While oil paintings and sculpture dominated the public arena of portraiture, more private portraits were being created for domestic consumption and display. Nearly two hundred works, drawn from the collections of the National Galleries of Scotland and the British Museum, by leading artists including Gainsborough, Ramsay, Wilkie and Lawrence, are illustrated and catalogued within thematic sections on self-portraits, depictions of family and friends and commissioned portraits of the rising middle classes and the celebrities of the day. The two introductory essays by the co-curators Stephen Lloyd and Kim Sloan discuss aspects of the intimacy in viewing."--Jacket
