Rosie the Riveter: Women Working on the Home Front in World War II
New York Crown Publishers, Inc. 1998 0517885670 / 9780517885673 Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
120 pp., illus., biblio., index; 25 cm. Illustrated with photographs. Firm binding, clean inside copy. "When America's men went off to war in 1942, millions of women were recruited, through posters and other propaganda, to work at non-traditional jobs. In defense plants, factories, offices, and everywhere else workers were needed, they were--for the first time--well paid and financially independent. But eventually the war ended, and the government and industries that had once persuaded them to work for the war effort now instructed them to return home and take care of their husbands and children. Based on interviews and original research by noted historian Penny Colman, Rosie the Riveter shows young readers how women fought World War II from the home front." - Publisher.

Art of the Gold Rush
Berkeley, CA University of California Press; Oakland Museum of California; Crocker Art Museum 1998 0520214323 / 9780520214323 Soft Cover Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
xv, 148 pp., illus. (some col.), col. map, bib. notes, index; 27 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Oakland Museum of California, Oakland, Calif., Jan. 24-May 31, 1998; Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, Calif., June 20-Sept. 13, 1998; National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., Dec. 30, 1998- Mar. 7, 1999. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Richly illustrated with colour plates. "The California Gold Rush captured the get-rich dreams of people around the world more completely than almost any event in American history. This catalog, published in celebration of the sesquicentennial of the 1848 discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill, shows the vitality of the arts in the Golden State during the latter nineteenth century and documents the dramatic impact of the Gold Rush on the American imagination. Among the throngs of gold-seekers in California were artists, many self-taught, others formally trained, and their arrival produced an outpouring of artistic works that provide insights into Gold Rush events, personages, and attitudes. The best-known painting of the Gold Rush era, C.C. Nahl's Sunday Morning in the Mines (1872), was created nearly two decades after gold fever had subsided. By then the Gold Rush's mythic qualities were well established, and new allegories--particularly the American belief in the rewards of hard work and enterprise--can be seen on Nahl's canvas. Other works added to the image of California as a destination for ambitious dreamers, an image that prevails to this day. In bringing together a range of art and archival material such as artists' diaries and contemporary newspaper articles, The Art of the Gold Rush broadens our understanding of American culture during a memorable period in the nation's history. / Janice T. Driesbach is Curator of Art at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. Her most recent book is Direct from Nature: The Oil Sketches of Thomas Hill (1997). Harvey L. Jones is Senior Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California. His most recent book is Twilight in Reverie: California Tonalist Paintings, 1890-1930 (1995). Katherine Church Holland, formerly Fine Arts Curator at the California Historical Society, is currently an independent curatorial consultant." - Publisher.

Realism, Malpas, James

Realism
Cambridge Cambridge University Press; Movements in Modern Art Ser. 1998 0521627575 / 9780521627573 Soft Cover Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
80 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 24 cm Tight, clean copy. This book is a survey of realist tendencies in modern art (usually associated with abstraction), starting with Courbet and the Realist movement rhrough the 20th century, and culminating with the Pop art movements in Britain and America; and their progeny today. "Realism in the art of the twentieth century is striking for its diversity. Although not bound together stylistically or by a manifesto of intention, a common thread in realist art is a commitment to the modern world and to things as they appear, whether it be the domestic claustrophobia depicted in Sickert's 'Ennui' or the social observation of urban nightlife in Weimar Germany in the work of Christian Schad and Georg Schrimpf. James Malpas examines the so-called 'socialist realism' of Stalin's Soviet Union and the condemnation of artists and works not conforming to the acadmic-realist scruples of Adolf Hitler. With the triumph of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s realism may have been thought outmoded, but its varied and vibrant quality was to be revealed in the 'Pop Art' backlash in the United States and Britain, in the work of David Hockney, Richard Hamilton, and Andy Warhol." - Publisher.
