Book Description Bowdoin College Museum of Art / Delmonico Books, Prestel Verlag, Brunswick, Maine, 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine/NF. Textured blue paper with gilt lettering. Bw photographic dj with orange lettering. 175 pp. with 30 color and bw figures and 115 full-color plates. Catalogue from the exhibition held June - October 2015. This is the first major museum survey dedicated to scenes of the night in American art from 1860 to 1960-an era not yet illuminated by electricity, to the beginning of the Space Age. Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art brings together 90 works in a range of media-including paintings, prints, drawings, and photographs-created by such leading American artists as Ansel Adams, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Lee Krasner, Georgia O'Keeffe, Albert Ryder, John Sloan, Alfred Stieglitz, and Andrew Wyeth, among others. The exhibition provides visitors with an opportunity to consider transformations in American art across generations and traditional stylistic confines; demonstrates the popularity of the theme with American artists of diverse aesthetic convictions; and investigates how they responded to the unique challenges of picturing the night. The works featured in Night Vision reflect the broad range of subject matters that attracted artists to night scenes-including the reflections of moonlight on ocean waves, encounters in electrified urban streets, and firework celebrations. For some mid-nineteenth-century artists, such as Albert Bierstadt, paintings of the night offered the compelling artistic challenge of representing the natural elements of clouds, moon, and sky when shrouded in darkness, while at the same time providing rich opportunities for the symbolic use of light. Following the industrial revolution and emergence of electricity in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, American artists, such as Alfred Stieglitz, John Sloan, and Martin Lewis, began to consider new techniques in order to capture electrical sources of light and their effects on nighttime conditions. Across the range of works presented in Night Vision, visitors see how reduced visual information and an altered perception in the dark tested artists' ability to render shadow, light, and form. This lack of light ultimately resulted in less illustrative scenes and transformed the night into an arena for stylistic experimentation and the rise of abstraction in the early mid-twentieth century. - from the museum web site.

Book Description Prestel. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960, Joachim Homann, This gorgeously illustrated book investigates how leading American artists of diverse aesthetic convictions responded in a range of media-including paintings, drawings, prints and photographs-to the unique challenges of picturing the night. Retooling their palette and reconsidering their techniques, artists cherished the night as a time of heightened alertness and active imagination. Mysterious and provocative, the darkness was experienced as liberating, both on an aesthetic and personal level-allowing artists to become invisible, turn inward and express personal truths in unique and poetic ways. Night Vision expands the conversation on American art and the rise of modernism, as it demonstrates how the theme of the night inspired artists who sought to leave behind established styles and traditions to better reflect the broader societal and technological shifts as well as a new understanding of the value of art as personal expression.
