Art Resource is pleased to announce that images from the Visual Arts Library, London, are now available through our office. This collection significantly augments the late ninetheenth and twentieth-century holdings available through Art Resource.
Among the "modern masters" represented in the Visual Art Library are Cezanne, Manet, Van Gogh and Gaugin. In addition, works by Impressionist artist Monet, Renoir, Sisley and Pissarro. Notably, Degas is represented by paintings, pastels as well as bronze sculptures. Lesser known Impressionist artists such as Eugene Boudin (1824-1898), add depth to the overall collection. All of these artists are represented by works which are culled primarily from private collections, and therefore seldom seen by the public.
The twentieth-century works now available, span the major artistic developments of this Century, including Fauvism, Cubism, Srrealism, Art Brut, Dadaism and Expressionism. The sensuous, rounded forms typical of Brancusi and Jean Arp contrast the emaciated elongations of Giacometti's bronze figures. The exuberant palette seen in Roul Dufy's depictions of leisure and luxury contrast the angst-ridden themes of Kaethe Kollwitz and George Grosz. Of particular note is the availability of important and representative works by German Expressionist artist such as Max Beckmann and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.
