43 AEBERSOLD, JANE FORD; BURKE, CHRISTINA E.; PECK, JAMES; PRICE, B. BYRON; RUSHING, W. JACKSON; WATSON, MARY JO; WHITE, MARK. The Eugene B. Adkins Collection: Selected Works.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2011. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Eugene B. Adkins (1920-2006) spent nearly four decades acquiring his extraordinary collection of Native American and American Southwestern art. His vast assemblage includes paintings, photographs, jewelry, baskets, textiles, and ceramics by many of the Southwest's most renowned artists and artisans. This stunning volume features full-color reproductions of significant works from the Adkins Collection, some of which are reproduced here for the first time. Adkins began collecting in the 1960s, when American southwestern art enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. Ultimately his holdings encompassed works by such distinguished American artists as Maynard Dixon, Dorothy Eugenie Brett, Charles Bird King, Alfred Jacob Miller, Charles M. Russell, and Joseph H. Sharp. In addition, Adkins was a passionate and prescient connoisseur of Native American art and artifacts, and his wide-ranging collection of works by Native artists includes paintings by T. C. Cannon, sculpture by Maria Martinez, and jewelry by Charles Loloma, all of which are represented in this book. Along with its rich photographic sampling of works by Native and non-Native artists, The Eugene B. Adkins Collection offers informative essays by art historians and curators, whose areas of expertise coincide with Adkins's own interests. The volume also features a foreword by David L. Boren, President of the University of Oklahoma, and a preface by Randall Suffolk, Director of the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, and Ghislain d'Humires, Director of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma. These two museums, which share a commitment to preserving Native American art and artifacts, are joint stewards of the Eugene B. Adkins Collection.

45 AGEE, WILLIAM C. & FAXON, SUSAN C. Coming Of Age: American Art, 1850s To 1950s.
Yale University Press. New Haven and London: 2006. 0300115237 / 9780300115239 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
From the 1850s to the 1950s, American art and culture progressed from provincial status to international prominence, and American art transitioned from figurative depictions of the particular to abstract interpretation of universal ideals. This book chronicles this complex century of maturation through a selection of paintings from the collection of the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover Massachusetts. From the 1850s to the 1950s, American art and culture progressed from provincial status to international prominence, and American art developed from figurative depictions of the particular to abstract interpretations of universal ideals. This beautiful book chronicles this complex century of maturation through an exquisite selection of paintings from the extraordinary collection of the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts. "Coming of Age" begins with Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Church, and the Hudson River School landscapes that embody the new nationalism of mid-nineteenth century America. Their successors, American Luminists like Jasper Cropsey and Fitz H. Lane, infused their immediate natural surroundings with glowing light and crystalline clarity, while contemporary Barbizon-influenced tonalists, such as George Inness, sought to capture the American ethos through an emotional, atmospheric landscape language. In the later nineteenth century, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, and Eastman Johnson imaged native subjects through the lens of realism. Childe Hassam and Maurice Prendergast brought Impressionist aesthetics to the American context, while expatriates including John Singer Sargent and James McNeil Whistler established themselves in European art capitals. In New York, turn-of-the-century Ashcan school painters captured the gritty cityscape that would host American champions of modernism Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, and Marsden Hartley. In the 1930s, European-trained artist Josef Albers introduced a generation of American painters to new theories of colour and space from which emerged the breakthrough Abstract Expressionists. By the 1950s, American art had come of age, as Americans securely held the vanguard position in the international art world. The search for an American expression, 1850-1917 by Susan C. Faxon 16 American art, 1910-1950s : themes, traditions, continuities by William C. Agee 68

52 ALLAN, SCOTT & MORTON, MARY (EDITORS). Reconsidering Gerome.
Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2010. First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Jean-Lon Gr™me (1824-1904) was an undisputed professional success during his lifetime. Crowds flocked to see his vividly rendered historical and Orientalist compositions, and thanks to the mass marketing of his work through mechanical reproduction, he reached audiences on an unprecedented scale. From the outset, however, his success met with critical hostility. ƒmile Zola, champion of ƒdouard Manet, dismissed Gr™me as a cynical manufacturer of anecdotal images for popular consumptionÑa critique repeatedly echoed by historians of modern art. In light of revisionist and postmodern trends over the past four decades, however, Gr™me's work is now being approached with unprecedented seriousness and refreshing creativity. The ten essays in this volume go far in challenging critical biases against the artist and suggesting new avenues of research. These papers indeed suggest that we are just beginning to learn how to "read" Gr™me's paintings in their full complexity. Reconsidering Gr™me was published to accompany the exhibition The Spectacular Art of Jean-Lon Gr™me, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum June 15 through September 12, 2010. Scott Allan is assistant curator in the Department of Paintings at the J. Paul Getty Museum. Mary Morton, former associate curator in the same department, is curator of French painting at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and editor of Oudry's Painted Menagerie: Portraits of Exotic Animals in Eighteenth-Century Europe (Getty Publications, 2007) and coauthor of Courbet and the Modern Landscape (Getty Publications, 2006).

53 ALLARA, PAMELA. Pictures Of People: Alice Neel's American Portrait Gallery.
University Press of New England: . s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In this vibrant chronicle of the life and work of the prolific painter and bohemian eccentric Alice Neel, whose career spanned the decades from the 1920s to the 1970s, Pamela Allara highlights portraits that constitute a virtual gallery of American cultural history. While some of Neel's portraits graced the covers of publications like Ms. and Time, most of her subjects were unknownsÑthe marginalized, the disenfranchised, the oppressed. Neel, influenced by left-wing politics and modernism, did more than infuse portraiture with a new energy and relevance. By recording the visages of her sitters, she rescued them for history and rendered them witnesses to their time.

54 ALLBRIGHT, ANNE; BERLO, JANET CATHERINE & WHITE, MARK ANDREW. A World Unconquered: The Art Of Oscar Brousse Jacobson.
Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art: 2015. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Oscar Brousse Jacobson (1882-1966) was a prolific artist who devoted much of his career to the depiction of the wilderness of the American West, especially Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. He also became a passionate supporter of the visual arts in the Southwest and an enthusiastic promoter of Native American fine artists, such as the early Kiowa artists, Acee Blue Eagle, and others. Over the course of his forty-year career at the University of Oklahoma, he oversaw the dramatic expansion of the School of Art and the creation of an art museum in 1936 that would eventually become the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. A World Unconquered: The Art of Oscar Brousse Jacobson surveys the career of this important yet often overlooked artist. Following his study at Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kansas, with Birger Sandzn, Jacobson became an advocate for modernism and embraced the wilderness as his primary subject. Drawn to the seemingly inhospitable and desolate, Jacobson favored the desert, which eventually led him to paint the Sahara in 1925-26. He balanced a productive painting career with an inexorable desire to promote appreciation for and knowledge of world cultures in the new state of Oklahoma. Jacobson organized exhibits of Asian, Native American, and North African art and culture at OU and played an important role in facilitating New Deal post office murals in the state. Published in conjunction with a retrospective exhibition of Jacobson's career, A World Unconquered offers the first critical analysis of his work as both an artist and a cultural figure and coincides with the centennial of his arrival in Oklahoma in 1915. 93 color and 15 black and white illustrations, 154 pages, 9" x 12". Anne Allbright is a Ph.D. candidate at Southern Methodist University. Janet Catherine Berlo is Professor of Art History and Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester. Mark Andrew White is the Eugene B. Adkins Senior Curator and Curator of Collections of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma.
