Description : What was the place of the artist in a new society? How would he thrive where monarchy, aristocracy, and an established church—those traditional patrons of painting, sculpture, and architecture—were repudiated so vigorously? Neil Harris examines the relationships between American cultural values and American society during the formative years of American art and explores how conceptions of the artist's social role changed during those years.

Description : Irene Poon's book pays tribute to 25 Asian American artists she has known and photographed during her own distinguished career. She has compiled a book about the pioneers she found to emulate when she began creating images of the world around her, both within and beyond her own San Francisco Chinatown. Selected art works and photographic portraits provide an insightful introduction to the Asian American artists active from the 1930s through the 1960s. Many of these artists continue to be productive in the 21st century. Poon's sensitive portraits of senior Asian American artists from California, Hawaii, Washington State, and New York City has great significance for Asian Pacific American studies and the history of art in America. Among the artists included are George Tsutakawa, Mineacute; Okubo, Johsel Namkung, and Jade Snow Wong.

Description : "Though comparatively short, it is no once-over-lightly chronicle full of insignificant names and dates. It brilliantly achieves its principal aim: to provide readers with a compact but broad and well rounded conception of the progress of the fine arts in America from ca. 1670 to the present day. . . . It is a fascinating book, full of new vistas; it has all the earmarks of an instant classic."—American Artist "[Taylor] describes changing definitions of art as much as he describes art itself, and he shows how the shifting forms of patronage affected the forms of art. He analyzes artists' associations . . . and he shows how museums and schools have expanded the audience for art. In short, he places artists and their work in cultural context. This treatment of the social history of art is the most original and intriguing aspect of Taylor's sketch."—Journal of American History "This is a brilliantly subtle book. It builds with one insight after another, and suddenly the reader finds that a whole new way of looking at American art is being proposed. . . . After decades of thinking and looking and teaching, Dr. Taylor has written it all down. This work will become a classic interpretation almost overnight."—Peter Marzio, director, Corcoran Gallery of Art "Interest in American art is unlikely to abate. . . . Mr. Taylor's short book is an invaluable guide through this activity and to its traditions."—Neil Harris, Wall Street Journal

Description : John Castagno's Artists' Signatures and Monograms have become the standard reference source for galleries, museums, libraries, and collectors around the world. Whether used to identify, authenticate, or verify signatures and works of both well-known and little-known artists, Castagno's work has no equal. In the first volume of Artists Monograms and Indiscernible Signatures, An International Directory, 1800-1991 (Scarecrow, 1991), Castagno provided identification for more than 3,700 artists' signatures, along with biographical information and reference sources. This second volume contains some 2,100 artists and 3,000 signature examples. In addition to the standard signature entries, the book features sections for monograms and initials, common surname signatures, alternative surname signatures, symbols, and Cyrillic Signatures. Less than five percent of the entries in this volume are listed in the original volume--and these are included to provide additional information about the artists. The use of Artists' Monograms and Indiscernible Signatures II: An International Directory From 1900 provides the researcher a reference tool not duplicated elsewhere--one that will save many hours of research.

Description : Mathews's standard biography of Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937), based on extensive research in archives in this country and family records in France. An important artist in the salons of Paris, Tanner was born and studied in Philadelphia but left America for Europe, where his race would not stand in the way of his ambition. Providing a full account of the artist's life and art, Henry Ossawa Tanner gives readers insight into the art trends of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as well as into the struggle of African Americans of this period. "[Tanner] ranks not only as the first truly distinguished Negro American artist but as one of America's first outstanding successes in the salons of Europe. In this work [Mathews] has significantly added to our knowledge of the history of American art."—John Hope Franklin, from the Foreword "The book gives the main facts of Tanner's life and successfully places his artistic work in its historic context....It is a welcome and useful volume."—August Meier, Journal of American History

Description : "The 1960s have become fixed in our collective memory as an era of political upheaval and cultural experiment. Visual artists working in a volatile milieu sought a variety of responses to the turmoil of the public sphere and struggled to have an impact on a world preoccupied with social crisis. In this compelling account of art from 1955 to 1969, Thomas Crow, author of the critically acclaimed Emulation: Making Artists for Revolutionary France, looks at the broad range of artists working in Europe and America in the stormy years of the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, and the counterculture, exploring the relationship of politics to art and showing how the rhetoric of one often informed - or subverted - the other." "Moving from New York to Paris, from Hollywood to Dusseldorf to London, Crow traces the emergence of a new aesthetic climate that challenged established notions of content, style, medium, and audience. In Happenings, in the Situationist International, in the Fluxus group, artists worked together in novel ways, inventing new forms of collaboration and erasing distinctions between performance and visual art. As the 1960s progressed, artists responded in many ways to the decade's pressures; internalizing the divisive issues raised by the politics of protest, they rethought the role of the artist in society, reexamined the notion of an art of personal "identity", discover celebrity, devised visual languages of provocation and dissent, and attacked the institutions of cultural power - figuratively and sometimes literally." "Crow sees the art of the 1960s as a reconfiguration of the concept of art itself, still cited today by conservative critics as the wellspring of all contemporary scandals, and by those of the left as rare instance of successful aesthetic radicalism. He expertly follows the myriad expressions of this new aesthetic, weaving together the European and American experiences, and pausing to consider in detail many individual works of art with his always perceptive critical eye. Both synthesis and critical study, this book reopens the 1960s to a fresh analysis."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Description : The rapidly changing and evolving art market might appear to be chaotic to the casual observer, with new highs, potential lows, and tastes and fashions changing season to season. Economists, however, view the actions of buyers and sellers as constituting an identifiable market. They have, for some decades, studied such issues as artistic productivity and "death effects" on prices, investment returns, and on the basis of the behavior and estimated prices in auction markets. The Economics of American Art analyzes the most pervasive economic issues facing the art world, applied to the whole spectrum of American art. The book begins by looking at how a market for American art developed, how the politics of the post-war era shaped, at least in large part, the direction of American art, and how this legacy continues into contemporary art today. The book then tackles several salient, integral questions animating the American art world: Are age and "type" of artist (i.e. traditional or "innovative") related and, if so, how might they be related to productivity? Is investment in American art a remunerative endeavor compared to other investment possibilities? Do economic insights provide understanding of fakes, fraud and theft of art, particularly American art, and is it possible to prevent art crime? Is there is a boom (or a bust) in the market for contemporary American art as might be found in other markets? The ongoing evolution of American art is attended by a massive number of influences, and the economic concepts employed in this volume will complement other critical and important cultural studies of art. Both practical and accessible, The Economics of American Art will be essential for collectors, auction houses, American art experts of all kinds, museums, gallery owners and, not least, by economists with continuing scholarly interests in these matters.

Description : Jacob Lawrence was one of the best-known African American artists of the twentieth century. In Painting Harlem Modern, Patricia Hills renders a vivid assessment of Lawrence's long and productive career. She argues that his complex, cubist-based paintings developed out of a vital connection with a modern Harlem that was filled with artists, writers, musicians, and social activists. She also uniquely positions Lawrence alongside such important African American writers as Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, and Ralph Ellison. Drawing from a wide range of archival materials and interviews with artists, Hills interprets Lawrence's art as distilled from a life of struggle and perseverance. She brings insightful analysis to his work, beginning with the 1930s street scenes that provided Harlem with its pictorial image, and follows each decade of Lawrence's work, with accounts that include his impressions of Southern Jim Crow segregation and a groundbreaking discussion of Lawrence's symbolic use of masks and masking during the 1950s Cold War era. Painting Harlem Modern is an absorbing book that highlights Lawrence's heroic efforts to meet his many challenges while remaining true to his humanist values and artistic vision.
