Face value : American portraits by Donna M De Salvo( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""What is a portrait today?" is the defining question of this volume. Essays by such leading scholars and critics as Maurice Berger, Kenneth E. Silver, Max Kozloff, and Michele Wallace propose fascinating answers, framing portraiture through its age-old kinship with status and wealth; its employ in fashion, politics, and advertising; and its current association with issues of identity. The catalogue also explores the seemingly quixotic rebirth of studied portraiture in an age of instant image-making; the philosophical difficulties inherent in capturing individual 'essence'; and why portraits of individuals have such cachet in mass-audience advertising."--Jacket

Tales from the easel : American narrative paintings from southeastern museums, circa 1800-1950 by Charles C Eldredge( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tales from the Easel features seventy full-color reproductions that convey the expressive, allusive powers of narrative painting. Though they range widely in subject and setting, all of the paintings gathered here are rendered in a representational, or realistic, style. Carrying moral, social, or patriotic messages, the paintings are meant to teach, enlighten, or inspire. Then again, the paintings can also tweak the very conventions that define them, with results that range from the delightfully idiosyncratic to the visionary." "Thomas Hart Benton, Winslow Homer, Andrew Wyeth, and Jacob Lawrence are just some of the household names whose work appears in Tales from the Easel. Others, like Elihu Vedder and Lilly Martin Spencer, are less well known, but still vital to the development of narrative painting. While some of the artists, including George Caleb Bingham and Paul Cadmus, were classically trained, self-taught painters such as Carlos "Shiney" Moon and Thomas Waterman Wood are also represented." "American rivers, cities, and battlefields are among the native surroundings shown in many of the paintings. However, artists also looked elsewhere for settings - to Europe, the Holy Land, or even some imagined realm. Charles C. Eldredge's essay discusses the rich and varied sources of American narrative painting - from literature and history to childhood and domestic life - and an essay by William Underwood Eiland provides a discussion of the southern tale-telling tradition. Artist biographies by Reed Anderson and Stephanie J. Fox appear opposite the paintings, adding further context."--Jacket
Clearly inspired : contemporary glass and its origins by Karen S Chambers( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With text by Karen S. Chambers and Tina Oldknow and a wealth of color photographs, Clearly Inspired focuses on contemporary artists who use the glass-working techniques of antiquity -- in some cases, after having rediscovered or reinvented lost processes -- to enrich the modern history of glass. Transforming an ancient craft into a contemporary art, they pay homage to the masters of the past while making visual statements that are very much of our time
