Light! : the industrial age 1750-1900 : art & science, technology & society by Andreas Blühm( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the revolutionary changes brought about by the Industrial Age perhaps the most extraordinary and far-reaching was the transformation of light. Scientists described its hidden laws to the general public for the first time. Artists found radical ways of depicting it. Inventors found new ways of making it. The lives of ordinary people changed forever as streets, shops, theatres, even their own homes were brilliantly illuminated, first by gas, and then, even more dazzlingly, by electricity." "The story is told here for the first time in its entirety. The book describes the inventions still with us, such as electric light, the microscope and photography, as well as arcane reminders of a vanished world, such as the heliostat, the lithophane and the magic lantern. It portrays a revolution in the arts: the impressionists conjuring up sunlight, Constable redefining daylight, Caspar David Friedrich discovering twilight. And it debates the changing symbolism of light: the meaning of the Enlightenment, the light of God's truth, the nightmarish light of factory furnaces by night."--Jacket

Was The Wreck by Winslow Homer). Carnegie apparently also saw no point in having more than a single work by any one artist. Yet the collection has vastly exceeded this initial ambition in terms of both size and scope. Today it is called The Carnegie Museum of Art and owns some four hundred American paintings and sculptures dating from the late eighteenth century (the earliest works are Benjamin West's Venus Lamenting the Death of Adonis and Gilbert Stuart's portrait of
Dream street : W. Eugene Smith's Pittsburgh project by W. Eugene Smith( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1955, having just ended his high-profile but stormy career with Life magazine by resigning, W. Eugene Smith was commissioned to spend three weeks in Pittsburgh and produce one hundred photographs for noted journalist and author Stefan Lorant's book commemorating the city's bicentennial. Smith stayed a year, compiling nearly seventeen thousand photographs for what would be the most ambitious photographic essay of his life. But only a fragment of the work was ever seen, despite Smith's lifelong conviction that it was his greatest set of photographs. Now, in an astonishing, first-time assemblage of the core images Smith asserted were the "synthesis of the whole," we see not only a portrayal of Pittsburgh but of mid-century, postwar America."--BOOK JACKET

Fierce friends : artists and animals, 1750-1900 by Louise Lippincott( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fierce Friends: Artists and Animals, 1750-1900 examines a critical period in our evolving relationship with animals. Between the mid-eighteenth and the early twentieth centuries, the philosophical legacy of the Enlightenment, the mechanical inventions of the Industrial Revolution, and the intellectual transformation sparked by Charles Darwin undermined many of the traditional roles assigned to animals, and overturned our view of them as physically, mentally - and divinely - separated from humans. This book interweaves the history of science and of art in an account of how humans came to understand and appreciate their shared biological ancestry." "Fierce Friends explores how painters, sculptors, illustrators, and ceramists reflected contemporary changes in the perception of animals, incorporating in their work the latest developments in geographical exploration and comparative anatomy, advances in geology and the birth of paleotology, the enthusiasm of amateur naturalists, and the impact of evolution theory. It identifies the importance of illustrators such as Audubon, who were frequently at the forefront of natural history discoveries, and reveals the visionary artists who drew imaginatively on Darwin's theory of natural selection to create mythical beasts. Artists as diverse as Hogarth, Oudry, Gericault, Delacroix, and Van Gogh here demonstrate mankind's increasing awareness of animals as sentient creatures, infusing genres such as animalier painting and portraiture with new meaning and emotional power."--Jacket
Inventing the modern world : decorative arts at the world's fairs, 1851-1939 by Jason T Busch( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inventing the Modern World explores innovation and its effect on the creation of objects and modern life. Objects examined here not only illustrate inventive or revived fabrication techniques, but also embody cross-cultural and cross-national influences, and reflect the significant nationalistic objectives and folkloric customs that shaped the competition inherent in the events. They also illuminate how the fairs became places where designers, makers, and consumers assembled to learn about other peoples and cultures, to make discoveries about craftsmanship and manufactures, to appropriate ideas, and to acquire works"--Cover flap
Strangely familiar : design and everyday life by Andrew Blauvelt( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Storyteller : the photographs of Duane Michals by Linda Benedict-Jones( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A self-taught photographer, Duane Michals broke away from established traditions of the medium during the 1960s. His messages and poems inscribed on the photographs, and his visual stories created through multiple images, defied the principles of the reigning practitioners of the form. Indeed, Michals considers himself as much a storyteller as a photographer. Accompanying a major traveling retrospective of his work, this book features Michals's best-known early sequences, 'The Spirit Leaves the Body', 'Paradise Regained', and 'Chance Meeting' - as well as works from later in his career such as 'The Bewitched Bee' and 'Who is Sidney Sherman?' Penetrating essays situate Michals within the history of 20th-century photography, explore the artist's images of sexual identity and sensuality, examine his legacy today, and address the childlike aspects of his work - a theme that has never been widely examined. An annotated timeline of Michals's biography includes rare archival materials and provides a unique glimpse into his life. Wide-ranging and timely, this volume offers a fresh appraisal of a popular artist who continues to create moving and experimental works that speak to a broad and evergrowing audience."--Jacket

Samuel Rosenberg : portrait of a painter by Barbara L Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While other artists moved to New York or Paris, painter Samuel Rosenberg, 1896-1972 never left the city he called home. From the age of twelve, when he took his first art class at a settlement house in Pittsburgh's Hill District, through a vigorous career that spanned six decades. Rosenberg was challenged by the complex city whose artistic legacy he did much to shape. In Pittsburgh, Rosenberg created more than five hundred paintings, engaged with the dynamic progress of American painting in the twentieth century, and inspired generations of students. This book is the first full study of his work and influence." "The constancy of Rosenberg's career was change. He began as a portraitist, 1915-1930, influenced by Velazquez, Rembrandt, Matisse, and later, Picasso. In the 1930s, however, Rosenberg turned to portray the city around him. Inspired by the steep hills, densely polluted atmosphere, crooked houses, and layered immigrant populations with intersecting poverties, he created emotional urban landscapes that ensured Pittsburgh's place in the American regionalist art movement." "Samuel Rosenberg's paintings were exhibited widely, from the World's Fair, 1939, to the nation's preeminent museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington. D.C., and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. He had twenty-six solo exhibitions during his lifetime, and he was accepted into the prestigious Carnegie International in 1920, 1925, and every subsequent exhibition from 1933 to 1967." "But it is possible that Rosenberg's most enduring legacy is his teaching. For more than forty years he taught drawing and painting at Carnegie Institute of Technology, now Carnegie Mellon University where his students included Philip Pearlstein. Mel Bochner, and Andy Warhol - whom Rosenberg saved from expulsion in 1947. He chaired the art department at the Pennsylvania College for Women (now Chatham College). He directed art programs and taught for decades at two community art schools: the Irene Kaufmann Settlement in the Hill District and the Isaac Seder Educational Center for the Young Men's and Women's Hebrew Association, which merged in 1961. A revered and devoted master teacher, he awakened several generations of Pittsburgh artists to the "adventure," as he called it, of art."--BOOK JACKET
