A new world : England's first view of America by Kim Sloan( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reproduces in full the celebrated but rarely seen British Museum collections of watercolours made by this relatively unknown gentleman-artist. It also tells the story of his five voyages to 'Virginia' and his role as Governor of the 'Lost Colony' of Roanoke, which preceded Captain John Smith's more successful settlement at Jamestown twenty years later." "White's watercolours bring to life the complex and sophisticated culture of the coastal Carolina Algonquians. All his known work is reproduced here - maps and charts, watercolours of Florida Indians, West Indian flora and fauna, the Inuit encountered by Martin Frobisher, and an amazing and influential set of watercolours of Picts and ancient Britons. Each one is reproduced in colour opposite its historical explanation, supplemented by the famous de Bry engravings, which were responsible for spreading his images throughout Europe, as well as other comparable works by contemporary and later artists including Mark Catesby, the eighteenth-century natural historian."--Jacket
Burning bright : essays in honour of David Bindman by Kim Sloan( )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book celebrates the work and career of the internationally renowned art historian, David Bindman, on the occasion of his 75th birthday, and is above all a tribute to him from his former students and colleagues. With essays on sculpture, drawings, watercolours and prints, the volume reflects the extraordinary range of Bindman's knowledge of works of art and his impact through his teaching and research on the understanding of British and European artistic developments from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. The essays cast light on questions of technique and stylistic change, patronage, collecting and iconography, and engage with issues such as the representation of race, gender, sexuality, political violence and propaganda, exile, and notions of the canon. The artists discussed here include Hogarth, Blake, Roubiliac, Thorvaldsen and Canova, all subjects of books by David Bindman, as well as Morland, Rowlandson, Gillray, Millais, Munch, Nevinson, and Heartfield.--UCL website
Enlightenment : discovering the world in the eighteenth century( Book )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extraordinary companion to the British Museum's 250th anniversary exhibition. Opened in 1753 as the world's first public museum, the British Museum epitomized the Age of Enlightenment's dream of a rational universe. Indeed, in many ways the museum was the age's most potent instrument: the incarnation of a world that could be parsed, classified, and comprehended through the physical observation of objects, all in the name of reason, progress, and civic improvement. In this lavishly illustrated volume, published to coincide with a new permanent exhibit, the museum's centrality to the Enlightenment enterprise is explored through the stunning breadth and variety of its early collections. From painting and sculpture to scientific instruments to fossils, the incredible objects displayed in these pages testify to the museum's devotion to discovering and learning about the natural world, the past, and other civilizations. The story of how these global collections were amassed is brilliantly told and includes many accounts of the legendary collectors and expeditions that have made the British Museum one of the world's premier museums. ...

The intimate portrait : drawings, miniatures and pastels from Ramsay to Lawrence by Stephen Lloyd( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 194 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
Places of the mind : British watercolor landscapes, 1850-1950 by British Museum( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Places of the Mind focuses on landscape drawing in the Victorian and Modern age, challenging the perception that the best British watercolours were produced between 1750 and 1850. Drawing on the British Museum's impressive collection, this books demonstrates the way in which artists of the later 19th and early 20th centuries drew on the tradition of renowned landscape artists Constable and Turner but developed and extended the genre, focusing on the changing nature of the British countryside during the Industrial Revolution and two world wars. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, this book includes works by Victorian artists Sir Edward John Pointer and John Singer Sargent and by many well-known 20th-century artists, such as John and Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson and Henry Moore, some of which have never previously been published
