A Chance Meeting : Intertwined Lives of American Writers and Artists, 1854-1967

Book Description“They met in ordinary ways,” writes Rachel Cohen in her introduction, “a careful arrangement after long admiration, a friend’s casual introduction, or because they both just happened to be standing near the drinks.. . . They talked to each other for a few hours or for forty years, and later it seemed to them impossible that they could have missed each other.” Each chapter of this inventive consideration of American culture evokes an actual meeting between two historical figures. In 1854, Henry James, as a boy, goes with his father to have a daguerreotype made by Mathew Brady and is captured in a moment of self-consciousness about being American. Brady returns to photograph Walt Whitman and, later, at City Point in the midst of the Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant. Meanwhile, Henry James begins a lasting friendship with William Dean Howells, and also meets Sarah Orne Jewett, who in turn is a mentor to Willa Cather. Mark Twain publishes...

This fascinating memoir, written by one of the greatest American violinists of the twentieth century, recounts an extraordinary life in music. Foreword by Jim Svejda. Once called by the New York Times "a violinist's violinist and a musician's musician," Louis Kaufman was born in 1905 in Portland, Oregon. He studied violin with Franz Kneisl at New York's Institute of Musical Art. He was the original violist of the Musical Art Quartet (1926-1933) and won the Naumburg Award in 1928, the year of his American solo recital debut in New York's Town Hall.

A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America

Book DescriptionIn the 1970s, John M. Olin, one of the country's leading industrialists, decided to devote his fortune to saving American free enterprise. Over the next three decades, the John M. Olin Foundation funded the conservative movement as it emerged from the intellectual ghetto and occupied the halls of power. The foundation spent hundreds of millions of dollars fostering what its longtime president William E. Simon called the "counterintelligentsia" to offset liberal dominance of university faculties and the mainstream media and to make conservatism a significant cultural force. Among the counterintellectuals the foundation identified and supported at key stages of their careers were Charles Murray during his early work on welfare reform, AllanBloom as he wrote THE CLOSING OF THE AMERICAN MIND, and Francis Fukuyama as he was developing his "End of History" thesis. Using exclusive access to the John M. Olin Foundation's leading personalities as well as its extensive...

A Sense of Place: Painters of Matunuck, Rhode Island, 1873-1941

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the hamlet of Matunuck, Rhode Island, was home to a number of painters ranging from impressionist Philip Leslie Hale to marine painter William Trost Richards. Based on unpublished letters and paintings, the author discusses the evolution of the summer colony from the arrival in 1873 of the noted writer and reformer Edward Everett Hale to the outbreak of World War II, and defines their work within the context of American art. "A Sense of Place: Painters of Matunuck, Rhode Island, 1873-1941" makes a significant contribution to the scholarship of American art, nineteenth-century art colonies, and American studies.

Albert Durer: His Life and Work, Part 1

Book Description1882. Volume 1 of 2. No exhaustive and critical account of the life and works of Albert Durer had been previously placed before the English reading public. This is a careful translation of the German original. Durer, the German painter and engraver, was considered the foremost artist of the Renaissance.

These volumes tell the story of his life and work, with many, many gorgeous illustrations. Volume 2 ISBN 0766155102.

Albrecht Durer and His Legacy: The Graphic Work of a Renaissance Artist

Albrecht Durer is the most significant and admired artist of the northern Renaissance. Tracing his work and influence from his earliest career to his powerful posthumous role within German culture, this richly illustrated book surveys all of the artist's best-known prints as well as numerous drawings and watercolors. The catalogue of a greatly anticipated exhibition of Durer's work in England--including loans of many precious works rarely seen by the public--the volume features 85 color and 267 black-and-white illustrations. It follows Durer's career from his first work in the medieval tradition of Martin Schongauer, through his Italian education in the classical tradition, to his sophisticated development of the woodcut and engraving techniques that changed the history of printmaking. The book examines Durer's long-lived influence, from the obsession of artists and collectors with his work during the late sixteenth century to the iconic status he acquired...

Alexis Rockman

Book DescriptionAlexis Rockman, born in 1962, is a leader among a young generation of artists who have returned to figurative content. Inspired by the natural sciences, he creates perverse yet seductive paintings that explore the intersections between biology and technology, reality and fantasy. Rockman's earliest work deals with natural history in ways that are eerie but believable; his latest work is inspired by a trip to Guyana and by late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century science expedition narratives. The graphic presentation of this full-color monograph is a tour-de-force, with striking reproductions of Rockman's beautifully rendered and thought-provoking paintings.

Alice Neel: The Art of Not Sitting Pretty

Alice Neel liked to say that she was the century and in many ways she was. She was born into a proper Victorian family, and came of age during suffrage. The quintessential Bohemian, she spent more than half a century, from her early days as a WPA artist living in the heart of the Village, through her Whitney retrospective in 1974, until her death ten years later, painting, often in near-obscurity, an extraordinarily diverse populationa??from young black sisters in Harlem to the elderly Jewish twin artists, Raphael and Moses Soyer, to Meyer Schapiro and Linus Pauling, to the American Communist Party chairman Gus Halla??creating an indelible portrait of 20th century America. Neela??s hundreds of portraits portray a universe of powerful personalities and document an age. Neel painted through the Depression, McCarthyism, the Civil Rights Movement, the sexual revolution of the 60a??s, feminism, and the feverish eighties. Fiercely democratic in her subjects, she portrayed her lovers, her...

Alighiero E Boetti: Shaman-Showman

Book DescriptionThis memoir is both a private testimony and a critical study, written by the woman who was Boetti's companion during the first 20, and most decisive, years of his career. It is also an album of photographs and drawings, many of them neverbefore published. Witness the very individual journey of the "shaman/showman," as Boetti referred to himself, evoked through images and words that recall the key events, times, and places of the 1960s and 70s generation of artists. Boetti's artistic output spanned 30 years, from 1964 until his death in 1994, and he was prolifically inventive. He graduated from Arte Povera to Conceptualism with an enchanting playfulness, but also with powerful philosophical and geopolitical intuitions that only now fully reveal their prophetic nature. Essay by Annemarie Sauzeau Boetti. Paperback, 5 x 8.25 in./218 pgs / 152 b&w.
