SR Set: The Transformative 19th Century in Europe
CDR-1316
Title: SR Set: The Transformative 19th Century in Europe
Description: The 1815 Vienna Congress and the Holy Alliance created hope across Europe that life could go back to pre-Napoleonic times. As it turned out, revolutions--largely unsuccessful--throughout the 19th c., however, precipitated changes on many levels across the continent. At the beginning of the 19th century, most of the work was done in and around the home by family members in the countryside. With increases in population, reapportioning of land resulting in more uniform and increased crops, we begin to see more movement towards towns and increased need for electrical and steam power, resulting in even more mobility. Ever increasing industrialization towards the end of the century required not only natural resources but also manpower. With denser population, more epidemics decimated large portions of the population until towards the latter part of the 19th c. advances in medicine resulted in more understanding and treatment of major illnesses. Growing sentiments of nationalism created unrest and changed alliances and borders. In 1871, Bismark was able to unite Germany, creating a major power determined to build its industry, military and naval power. Finally, this group offers examples of major building projects, increasing use of steel and glass as well as examples of townscapes of the late 19th c. (Feb.2016)

SR Set: The Woodcut
CDR-1360
Title: SR Set: The Woodcut
Description: The woodcut, that most elemental of print forms, arose in northern Europe around 1400 with the new availability of paper. The earliest prints were generally of a devotional nature and rapidly became popular, largely because of their affordability, in contrast to costly illuminated manuscripts. Early masters such as Dürer and Holbein took the woodcut to great heights, but it was quickly obscured by other print forms of engraving, etching, lithography, etc. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw a resurgence of the woodcut with artists like Gauguin and Munch exploring new techniques and aesthetics in an old medium, to be continued by the Die Brücke artists who saw the expressive power of brutal knife lines and gouges in a block of wood. Artists continue to explore the possibilities of the woodcut into the twenty-first century. 6/2015

SR Set: National Monuments and Monuments to Genius
CDR-1308
Title: SR Set: National Monuments and Monuments to Genius
Description: The images in this set are suggested by Nikolaus Pevsner in his book "A History of Building Types." His examples include monuments referring to persons or leaders or events instrumental in creating a nation or in celebrating the sense of nationhood, or national genius. Pevsner drew on the nineteenth century classical types inherited from the Romans: the column, as in Trajan's Column; the triumphal arch like those of the Emperors Titus and Constantine; and the equestrian statue such as that of Marcus Aurelius. We have gone beyond this threesome of classical types with the inclusion of such monuments as the Vietnam War Memorial. 8/16/2013

SR Set: Impressionism Outside of France
CDR-1277
Title: SR Set: Impressionism Outside of France
Description: Arising in France in the 1870s and 1880s, Impressionism is considered a French movement, but its influence spread well beyond French borders and into the next century. Indeed, it continues as a strong influence today. Our collection of Impressionist works from outside of France intends to illustrate how artists of most Western nations passed through a period of Impressionism in the last third of the Nineteenth century and early Twentieth century, each adapting and developing his own version of the movement. These works exhibit a range of Impressionist painting characteristics: the use of small visible brushstrokes, the changing quality of light and air, open composition and unusual visual angles. These characteristics were often blended with other influences of the time; sometimes including features of Realism, Expressionism, and Symbolism, with existing traditions of their own.

SR Set: Nineteenth Century Art: Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, etc.
CDR-1220
Title: SR Set: Nineteenth Century Art: Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, etc.
Description: A number of styles and periods are associated with nineteenth century European painting. Our group includes examples of Neoclassicism with David's Portrait of Madame Recamier and Napoleon Crossing the St. Bernard Pass; the elegant and precise works of Ingres such as La Grande Odalisque and the portrait of Louis-François Bertin. Among the works of Realism we draw on the wealth of work by Courbet including The Painter's Studio and the Funeral at Ornans, and on the vast range of Goya's painting from his wrenching Third of May, 1808, to the ghastly Saturn Devouring his Children, to the unflattering Family of Charles IV. Among examples of Romanticism are The Wreck of the Hope and Monk by the Sea by Caspar David Friedrich. The accompanying details of these works draw additional attention to depth of color, fullness of shape, and richness of texture.

SR Set: Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, etc.
CDR-1221
Title: SR Set: Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, etc.
Description: During the second half of the nineteenth century a group of artists challenged Parisian Academic conventions with their reassessment of art. Foremost was Edouard Manet whose landmark work Le Dejeuner sur l'Herb is included in this group of images along with the equally controversial Olympia. Monet startled the world with his open brushwork as seen in Boulevard des Capucines and Saint-Lazare Station. Among the many artists and their variety of work included in this group is Renoir and his Moulin de la Galette; Degas' Portrait of the Bellelli Family as well as bathers and dancers; and Gauguin's Ia Orana Maria. Among other artists represented are Pissarro, Morisot, Van Gogh, Seurat and Rodin. Paintings in this group glow with exceptional brilliance and close details are especially effective at showing distinctive brushwork techniques that create the illusion of sparkling light on water or the dappling effect of light and shade. Updated with 188 Bridgeman images in 2007.

SR Set: Barbizon School
CDR-1110
Title: SR Set: Barbizon School
Description: During the mid nineteenth century, influenced by the work of Constable, a group of French painters gathered at the village of Barbizon near Fontainebleau forest to paint realistic scenes from nature rather than the more acceptable formal subjects of the day. Among them are included Corot, Daubigny, Millet and Rousseau. Some, especially Millet, chose to portray the humble dignity of peasants in their daily life. Our set includes a range of works of these artists of the so-called Barbizon School (Sept.2010) Please note: Academic Image Sets are offered to show the breadth of our collections.

SR Set: Hudson River School
CDR-1109
Title: SR Set: Hudson River School
Description: During the mid nineteenth century the artists of the Hudson River School depicted romantic landscapes of the American wilderness, particularly the Hudson River Valley, and the Adirondack, Catskill and White Mountains. They instilled an overwhelming sense of the Creator in these sublime and often idealized landscapes and their interest in the natural beauty of their vast country, its exploration and settlement, carried some to the even wilder western regions. Our set also includes works by these artists done during their forays beyond the shores of North America. updated 1/2011 Please note: Academic Image Sets are offered to show the breadth of our collections.

SR Set: Impressionistic Depictions of Winter
CDR-1327
Title: SR Set: Impressionistic Depictions of Winter
Description: Winter landscape paintings from the 19th and early 20th century offer a study of light effects on snow. The focus is on the unique characteristics of snow, rather than the human activity taking place in the snow. Painters applied an extraordinary range of color and light, including grays, pinks, blues and yellows to portray the quiet beauty of the landscape. This set includes images from Monet, Pissarro and Sisley, well-known painters of winter, as well as a broad range of European, Russian and American painters. (Feb. 2014)

SR Set: La Belle Epoque: 1871-1914
CDR-1328
Title: SR Set: La Belle Epoque: 1871-1914
Description: Peace, stability and prosperity (for many) after the end of the Franco-Prussian War in 1871 set in motion immense advances in the sciences, in building technology and the arts in France and all across Europe (Jugendstil). An influx of cheap labor into urban centers enabled large projects to flourish: the Metro, the Eiffel Tower and the early beginnings of automobile production, among others. Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Gauguin, Matisse and others give a glimpse of the joyful life, accompanied in music and dance by the likes of Franz Lehar and Johann Strauss! (April 2014)
