James Tissot
Nancy Marshall
0300081731
Oct 1999
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Known for his sumptuous and elegant portrayals of well-turned-out Victorian society, Tissot has not had a scholarly museum exhibition in over 30 years--until now. James Tissot is the catalog accompanying a recent traveling exhibition of this artist's work, curated by Marshall and Warner (of the Yale Center for British Art). Their book portrays Tissot as "the painter of modern life"--in the Baudelairian sense. Although formally conservative in painting technique, they argue, Tissot was one of the best observers of life in the 19th century, focusing on the complex manners and morals of Victorian society. This argument is presented in the introductory essay as well as in the thorough catalog entries of the artist's paintings and prints. The other recent general monograph on the subject of Tissot, Russell Ash's James...

From Publishers Weekly
A Sotheby's art specialist must arrange a career-making auction of 19th-century paintings, reconsider the loss of her marriage and negotiate the possibilities of new romance in Hughes's mannered, elegant debut. At an art opening one evening, Claire, 32, encounters Tobias, the man her ex-husband, Peter, left her for, and learns that that Peter has dumped Tobias, too. Claire can offer sympathy but not much attention: she has her own still-wounded heart to think about, and she's tied up in securing two paintings by James Tissot (a "first-rate second-tier artist") for her auction from Elizabeth Jane Driscoll, an octogenarian widow with undeserving heirs. To both women, the paintings bear the symbolic weight of memory and desire. Also in the picture is Peter's brother, Frank, a former priest who arrives in New York...

Art of the Garden

Hardcover

Book Description
British gardens-from the historic to the most contemporary-have long been a source of inspiration for artists. The lovely works featured in Art of the Garden span three centuries and range in media from traditional watercolors and oils to digitally enhanced photography and installation art. Turner, Constable, Bacon, Freud, Hume, Quinn: all of these artists have, at some point, returned to this most beloved of subjects and explored it in their individual way.

A unique mix of authors has contributed to the book, examining subjects as varied as the cross-fertilization between painting and design in the work of key garden designers and radical new takes on the garden in the work of contemporary artists. The book also features a gazetteer of artists' gardens, including those of James Tissot, Barbara Hepworth, Patrick...

Menorah for Athena: Charles Reznikoff and the Jewish Dilemmas of Objectivist Poetry
Stephen Fredman
0226261395
May 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The first major Jewish poet in America and a key figure of the Objectivist movement, Charles Reznikoff was a crucial link between the generation of Pound and Williams, and the more radical modernists who followed in their wake. A Menorah for Athena, the first extended treatment of Reznikoff's work, appears at a time of renewed interest in his contribution to American poetry.

Stephen Fredman illuminates the relationship of Jewish intellectuals to modernity through a close look at Reznikoff's life and writing. He shows that when we regard the Objectivists as modern Jewish poets, we can see more clearly their distinctiveness as modernists and the reasons for their profound impact upon later poets, such as Allen Ginsberg and Charles Bernstein. Fredman also argues that to understand Reznikoff's work more...
