16 Campbell, Kathryn H. Curator The Thomas and James Buttersworth Collection from the Penobscot Marine Museum.
Searsport, ME Penobscot Marine Museum 2000 First Edition Softcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
32 pages, 25 color illustrations (of ships) , pictorial wrappers, very good. From the introduction by Daniel Finamore, Peabody Essex Museum: "The paintings of James Edward Buttersworth (1817-1894) have always held a prominent position in the canon of 19th-century Anglo-American marine art. Almost immediately upon his arrival in America, Buttersworth began painting large-format broadside views of famous American clipper ships that were translated into popular lithographic prints by Nathaniel Currier. ~ he was born in London in 1817, the son of a marine painter named Thomas Buttersworth (active 1797-1827). As is to be expected, James Buttersworth's early works closely emulate those of his father. Thomas had served in the Royal Navy and painted in the formal style of the 18th-century British marine tradition. Thomas painted ships of the Napoleonic wars and of the East India Company, but his War of 1812 battle scenes were his most evocative works - the patriotic expressions of a real sailor-artist.

18 Cikovsky Jr., Nicolai & Franklin Kelly & Judith Walsh & Charles Brock Winslow Homer
Yale University Press 1995 0300065558 / 9780300065558 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
420 pages, well illustrated (some in color) , cloth, dust jacket, very good. Former owner's embossed label on front blank endpaper. From Publishers Weekly: "Instead of Winslow Homer as unvarnished, naive democrat, an artist divorced from the intellectual life of his times, Cikovsky gives us a painter who was a modernist in his detachment, anxiety and impersonality. Plunging into New York City's seething cultural milieu in the 1860s, the Boston-born illustrator joined a loose artistic circle that included jounalist Eugene Benson, whose programmatic call for a modern, national, indigenous art struck a chord in Homer. But disillusionment set in with the corrupt Gilded Age of the 1870s, and Homer took refuge in art, plumbing nature's elemental power in his seascapes, and investigating the act of seeing in vibrant, spontaneous watercolors of the tropics or the Maine coast. His later paintings grasp death with almost mystical immediacy. Curator of American art at the National Gallery, Cikovsky lays bare new worlds of meaning in this immensely rewarding, superbly illustrated reassessment. "; 12.20 X 10.60 X 1.30 inches; 420 pages

Museum of Fine Arts 1960 Softcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
79 leaves, well illustrated (some in color) , wrappers, 8.5 by 11 inches, very good. From Wikipedia: "Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet ,10 June 1819 – 31 December 1877) was a French painter who led the Realist movement in 19th-century French painting. The Realist movement bridged the Romantic movement (characterized by the paintings of Théodore Géricault and Eugène Delacroix) with the Barbizon School and the Impressionists. Courbet occupies an important place in 19th century French painting as an innovator and as an artist willing to make bold social statements through his work."
