3 Anonymous) Nation's Pictures
Cassell and Co., London, 1903,

[Complete in four volumes.] The set containing 193 chromo-photographic process three-colour plates, the plates tipped to stiff olive-grey paper and interleaved with separate printed descriptions for each plate. Pp. viii + 48 plates + [4] (ads); vi + 48 plates + [4] (ads); [4] (col. frontis. and accompanying descriptive leaf) + iv + 48 plates (numbered 2 - 49) + [4] (ads); xvi + 48 plates + [4] (ads). Folio (15" x 11"). With brief biographical notes of the painters in vol. 4, pp. v - xvi. The set would more properly havebeen titled "The Nation's Nineteenth-Century Pictures", as Turner is the e arliest of the 131 artists whose work is reproduced in these volumes. The Pre-Raphaelites, and those influenced by the PRB movement, have a representation in the volumes consistent with their continuing popularity at the timeof publication; and in quality of colour reproduction the plates are the e quals of those in some hastily dished-up modern books, and the better for the exactness of their colour registration. Extremities lightly to moderately worn, fore-corners bumped, some scratching and spotting of cloth, water-marking to rear board of vol. 1. The hinges, although no longer by any meanstight, are still very serviceable as little shaking has been suffered by t he set over time. Cost of shipping will be extra due to the weight of the set. 450.00

"This exhibition surveys the sensibility of the Acadian community from the 1960s to the present time. An exhibition , although conceived as an Atlantic Provinces project and processed through respective professional representatives was condensed by curator Patrick Condon Laurette into a 'statement' involving fifteen artists from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the geographical area that repeats the concentration of the early Acadians. This exhibition achieves a logical form by virtue of four categories:- sculpture, folk art, painting, and conceptual criticism, presented with a due regard for the historical significance of these forms with in Canadian and international contexts." from the foreword / Avant-propos by BaernardRiordon.

12 ARTHUR, John Realist Drawings & Watercolors : Contemporary American Works on Paper. First Edition in dustjacket
New York Graphic Society, Boston, 1980, ISBN:0821211021 
ARTHUR, John. Realist Drawings & Watercolors : Contemporary American Works on Paper. Boston : New York Graphic Society, (1980). First Edition. Pp (5),6-144. Illustrated. 4to, grey cloth, silver lettering to spine. "The brilliant renaissance of realism in the past two decades has brought with it a strongly revived interest in drawing. Many of the most important realist artists make drawings as ends in themselves, sometimes working superbly within the tradition of linear draftsmanship, but often breaking out of its confines to work in more painterly modes, in unconventional media, or on unprecedented scale. These "works on paper" are fresh, immensely appealing, and f ascinating in their diversity. Realist Drawings & Watercoiors is a timely survey of this varied field. More than fifty artists are represented, most with two or three works from the past decade; almost all are dependent works rather than studies for paintings. The artists include old masters of the figurative scene (Fairfield Porter, Philip Pearlstein, Neil Weillver), photorealists in the news (Richard Estes, Chuck Close), well- known but very disparate artists like David Hockney and Red Grooms, and some lesser- known younger people who are fanatic draftsmen, working in extreme detail or on an extraordinary scale. Author John Arthur is close to many of these artists, and his lively text is largely based on interviews with them. He deals withthem individually, but also considers some of the larger questions arising from the works - the place of figurative art and drawing during the period dominated by abstraction, the reeducation of eye and hand required. Realis m has now emerged as a dominant mode, but very little of a substantial nature has been published on it; this handsome book is the first to deal with the drawings and watercolors." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. The emerging image: East Coast, West Coast -- Fairfield Porter, Richard Diebenkorn. 2. Realism: the first generation -- Philip Pearlstein, Alfred Leslie, Jack Beal, Alex Katz, Wayne Thiebaud, John Button, Jane Freilicher, Neil Welliver. 3.

13 ARTHUR, John Spirit of Place : Contemporary Landscape Painting & the American Tradition.First Edition in dustjacket
Bulfinch Press / Little, Brown and Company, Boston / Toronto / London, 1989, ISBN:0821217070 
ARTHUR, John. Spirit of Place : Contemporary Landscape Painting & the American Tradition. Boston / Toronto / London : Bulfinch Press / Little, Brown and Company, (1989). First Edition. (5),6-159,(1). Illustrated. Triple Column. Oblong 4to, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This stunning survey of some of the most beautitul and lyrical paintings created in recent decades demonstrates that Realism has remained a strong and constant link in American art. In Spirit of Place noted curator and art advisor John Arthur vividly refutes the firmly held critical perception that the great wave of abstraction at mdcentury swept all before it. In fact, many of the finest artists of each generation have responded intensely to the beauty of the land through an infinite variety of Realist expression in painting. In a provocative text informed by interviews and correspondence with many of the artists.Arthur examines contemporary landscape painting against the background of the grand late-nineteenth-century paintings of Frederic Church and the works of the great figures who followed, including Homer, Burchfield, Hopper, and O'Keette. Reviewing the landscape of the past three decades, Arthur discusses some sixty contemporary artists, among them Diebenkorn, Katz, Estes, Wyetn, Thiebaud, Beckman, Blaine, and Tobacco Forrester, and illustrates their work with seventy-seven full-page color plates — immensely appealing and dramatic images that will captivate every lover of landscape. In chapers devoted to the differing formal approaches of the painters of the '70s and '80s, he challenges art historians and critics, demonstrating that the web of the Realist tradition has many strands: some of the paintings included here are Expressionist in feeling, while others are romantic or even show the hardeer edge of Photo-Realism. But all speak to our renewed sense of the preciousness of the land, and each evokes in its way the "spirit od place."(from th dj). Contents : 1. American light: the shaping of a national trad ition : Frederic Edwin Church, Martin Johnson Heade, George Innes, Albert Pinkham Ryder, Winslow Homer. 2. The landscape interpreted: Charles Burchfield, Edward Hopper, Maxfield Parrish, Marsden Hartley, Charles Sheeler, Grant Wood, Alexandre Hogue, Georgia O'Keeffe, Milton Avery, Edwin Dickinson, Andrew Wyeth. 3. Toward a new realism: Richard Diebenkorn, Fairfield Porter,Alfred Leslis, Philip Peralstein, Elmer Bischoff, Peter Milton, Gabriel La deman, Neil Welliver, Alex Katz, Wayne Thiebaud . 4. Painterly realism: James Weeks, Jane Freilischer, Paul Resika, Vincent Arcilesi, Jerome Witkin, George Nick, Richard Crozier, Keith Jacobshagen, Don Nice, Sheila Gardner, Susan Shatter, John Gordon, William Nichols. 5.

BAKER, Marilyn. The Winnipeg School of Art : The Early Years. (Winnipeg) : Published for Gallery 1.1.1., School of Art, by the University of Manitoba Press, (1984). First Edition. Pp [1]-135,(1). Illustrated. Double and Triple Column. Index. Oblong large 8vo, illustrated yellow card covers. "Before the First World War, Winnipeg was Canada's third-largest city and the undisputed metropolis of the West. Rapid growth had given the city material prosperity, but little of its wealth went to culture or the arts. Despite the city's fragile cultural veneer, the enthusiasm and dedication of members of the arts community and a group of public-spirited citizens led to the establishment of the Winnipeg Art Gallery in 1912 and the Winnipeg School of Artin 1913. This volume is a history in words and illustration of the early y ears of the Winnipeg School of Art – its hopes and ideals and its strugglesfor survival. Its story is in large part a record of art and artists in Wi nnipeg during the period. The growth of the School is described through theterms of its first four principals: Alexander Musgrove, Frank Johnston, Ke ith Gebbhardt, and L. LeMoine Fitzgerald. Biographical sketches on artists involved with the School as teachers or students from 1913 to 1934 are alsoincluded. Reproductions of over 80 selected works from the exhibition mark ing the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the School, eight in fullcolour, present the most vital and provocative art of the period." - from the back cover.
