Howard Pyle : American master rediscovered by Howard Pyle( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when illustrators were national celebrities, Howard Pyle was one of the most successful. A prolific artist and author, Pyle wrote and illustrated for most of the nation's major magazines. His illustrations accompanied the writing of leading authors, including Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. Collaborating with significant historians, including Woodrow Wilson and Henry Cabot Lodge, he helped to fashion the nation's notion of colonial and federal history. And in his own books, Pyle produced enduring versions of Robin Hood and the Arthurian legends and shaped the American vision of pirate life. Howard Pyle: American Master Rediscovered presents the most recent research on American illustrator Howard Pyle (1853-1911), with thematic essays by leading scholars in art history, history, and literature. The book, richly illustrated, presents a fresh perspective on Pyle's familiar images by exploring his interaction with the art and culture of his time, effectively repositioning him within the broader spectrum of nineteenth-century art. In a challenge to the art historical canon, this book locates Pyle within the mainstream of nineteenth-century visual art, explicating how he influenced and was influenced by the artistic output of his era. Individual essays explore such topics as Howard Pyle's sources in contemporary French and English art, how contemporary ideas of manhood are articulated in Pyle's writing, the effects of Swedenborgianism on his work, and his influence on film and popular illustration. The book also features an analysis of Pyle's working methods and how they translated into effective illustrations
American chronicles : the art of Norman Rockwell by Linda Szekely Pero( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell explores Norman Rockwell's unparalleled role as an American icon-maker and storyteller. The book, a catalogue to a special exhibition at the Norman Rockwell Museum, traces the evolution of Rockwell's art and iconography throughout his career - from carefully choreographed reflections on childhood innocence in such paintings as No Swimming (1921) to powerful, consciousness-raising images like The Problem We All Live With (1964), which documented the traumatic realities of desegregation in the South." "American Chronicles demonstrates how Rockwell's images provided Americans with a vocabulary for describing and celebrating themselves, their country, and their experiences in the twentieth century. Written in an engaging style and from an insider's point of view, the book begins with Rockwell's early life, student years, and career in Manhattan, Mamaroneck, and New Rochelle, New York. In subsequent chapters, the author explores Rockwell's life and artworks when he lived in Arlington, Vermont, and later in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, where he enjoyed the life of a famous working artist for his last 25 years."--Jacket
Norman Rockwell : a centennial celebration by Norman Rockwell( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Norman Rockwell spent seven decades capturing the essence of the American spirit on canvas. His paintings, which graced more than three hundred covers of The Saturday Evening Post, created the symbols of the nation during World War II, depicted beautiful women who still retained their girl-next-door qualities, showed boys and girls embroiled in the delights and disappointments of childhood and young lovers sipping ice cream sodas, and celebrated the joys of family gatherings. But most of all, Rockwell's pictures portrayed the strength and compassion of small-town America, earning him a unique position as both a storyteller and a chronicles of American history. Adults and children alike recognize Norman Rockwell's name and paintings as the embodiment of all that is positive in the American character. Norman Rockwell, who painted from 1912 to 1976, illustrated not only magazine covers, but also children's books, boy scout calendars, and advertisements for corporations and the U.S. government. He also portrayed all of the major presidential candidates from 1952 to 1972, as well as statesmen, actors, and popular heroes of the day. Norman Rockwell is a Rockwell retrospective, featuring work from almost every year of his artistic career. From an early series depicting the awkwardness and exhilaration of young Boy Scouts to his later series illustrating the Four Freedoms--Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear--for which America was fighting in World War II, to his poignant and authentic images of Americans at play, at work, and in their homes, this collection offers a truly spectacular and diverse array of full-color reproductions of Rockwell's work. Norman Rockwell allows the Rockwell fan to trace the evolution of the artist and his craft, year by year, through his paintings, his sketches, and photographs of him at work. This volume also contains a discussion of Rockwell's life, "A Great American Success Story," and a section describing the precise and deliberate way he created his paintings. In addition, Norman Rockwell features a preface by Maureen Hart Hennessey, curator of The Normal Rockwell Museum at Stockbridge. This collection of Rockwell's work, full of his most popular paintings--as well as much of his lesser-known work--is sure to delight people of all ages
American chronicles : the art of Norman Rockwell by Norman Rockwell( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twentieth-century American society wittily and ironically portrayed by a great artist. Norman Rockwell (1894-1978), one of the most popular American artists of the past century, has often been regarded as a simple illustrator and had his work identified with the covers of the Saturday Evening Post. He is, instead, a total artist. An acute observer of human nature and talented storyteller, Rockwell captured America's evolving society in small details and nuances, portraying scenes of the everyday life of ordinary people and presenting a personal and often idealized interpretation of the American identity. His images offered a reassuring visual haven in a period of epoch-making transformation that led to the birth of the modern American society. The art of Norman Rockwell entered the homes of millions of Americans for over fifty years, illustrating the Roaring Twenties, the Depression, World War II, and the 1950s and 1960s. His works mirror aspects of the life of average Americans with precise realism and often in a humorous light. The exhibition catalog organized in collaboration with the Norman Rockwell Museum of Stockbridge, Massachusetts, presents well-known and beloved masterpieces like the 'Triple Self-Portrait' (1960), 'Girl at the Mirror' (1954), and 'The Art Critic' (1955) alongside carefully observed images of youthful innocence ('No Swimming', 1921) and paintings with a powerful social message like 'The Problem We All Live With' (1964)
Enduring ideals : Rockwell, Roosevelt & the four freedoms by Stephanie Haboush Plunkett( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illuminates both the historic context in which FDR articulated the Four Freedoms -- Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear -- and the role of Rockwell's paintings in bringing them to life for millions of people, rallying the public behind the War effort and changing the tenor of the times. In telling the story of how Rockwell's works were transformed from a series of paintings into a national movement, the exhibition also demonstrates the power of illustration to communicate ideas and inspire change. Also includes numerous other examples of painting, illustration, and more, by both Rockwell and a broad range of his contemporaries, from J.C. Leyendecker and Mead Schaeffer, to Ben Shahn, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks, among others
