500 Self-Portraits

J. Bell

500 Self-Portraits

бумажная книга

"The mirror, above all - the mirror is our teacher," wrote Leonardo da Vinci. Portraits are an endless source of fascination, responding as they do to the basic human impulse to look at faces and try to see into the character behind them. Self-portraits have the added fascination that comes from looking into the mirror and trying to study one\'s own face. This book presents an uninterrupted sequence of 500 self-portraits, in chronological order from ancient Egypt to the late twentieth century. The challenge of creating their own likeness has proved irresistible to artists, and included here are powerful and evocative works by many of the world\'s greatest painters and sculptors, including Dьrer, Rembrandt, Picasso and Andy Warhol....

Adam Style

бумажная книга

In the mid-Georgian era, between 1750 and 1785, a delightful form of domestic Neo-Classicism arose that came to be named after the outstanding architect of the period, Robert Adam.

It is packed with visual details and stunning colour images conjuring up a period, and a style, that has never lost its appeal.

American Art Book

American Art Book

бумажная книга

American Art Book is a vibrant guide to the most influential and best-loved American artists from Colonial times to the present. Covering three centuries, the art ranges from Puritan portraits to the luminous paintings of the Hudson River School and the American Impressionists, to the videos and neon and digital works of today`s most intriguing Conceptual artists. Like the enormously popular Art Book, it presents 500 artists in an A to Z format that departs from the usual emphasis on genres and time periods: Grandma Moses sits next to Robert Motherwell, and Winslow Homer faces Jenny Holzer, encouraging readers to contemplate the connections between art, American history, and popular culture. Each artist is represented by a full-page...

Architecture. Industry And Innovation. The early work of Nicholas...

бумажная книга

Nicholas Grimshaw is one of the pre-eminent figures of the British architectural scene, responsible for some of the outstanding buildings of the last decade. This volume covers the years 1965–88, a period which saw Grimshaw establish his practice and his reputation worldwide as an architect of great subtlety and a master of detail. Colin Amery charts the line of Grimshaw’s development from his student days at the Architectural Association onwards. He gives critical insights into Grimshaw’s thinking and design methodology for a family of buildings, from the 1965 Service Tower for student apartments to his 1988 Grand Union Walk housing and Sainsbury Superstore in Camden Town, North London.

Arikha

Duncan Thomson

Arikha

бумажная книга

In 1965, at the height of a successful career as an abstract painter in Paris and New York, Avigdor Arikha (b. 1929) suddenly stopped painting to return to drawing from life. When he returned to painting in 1973 it was to begin on the series of intensely observed portraits, nudes and still lifes for which he is now known worldwide. His intimate still lifes include such "local" subjects as a bundle of asparagus, a corner of his Paris studio and the books on his library shelves. His portraits range from informal studies of his close friends the playwright Samuel Beckett and the photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson to striking portrayals of public figures. This book surveys Arikha’s entire career, and includes much of his recent work.

Art and Feminism

Helena Reckitt

Art and Feminism

бумажная книга

Feminism has had a crucial impact on late twentieth-century art, inspiring some of the most pioneering developments in sculpture, painting, performance, photography, film and installation. The art world has been transformed by feminists who at the same time have been among its chief critics. Feminism has redefined the very terms of late twentieth-century art: it has exposed assumptions about gender; it has politicized the link between private and public; it has stressed the specificity of art marked by gender, race, age and class. Selected by editor and researcher Helena Reckitt, this collection presents the rich diversity of art informed by feminism from the 1960s to the start of the twenty-first century. Not just a comprehensive...

Art Deco Style

Bevis Hillier, Stephen Escritt

Art Deco Style

бумажная книга

The dominant style in architecture, jewellery and interior decoration of the 1920s and 1930s, Art Deco was an exuberant reaction to the austerity and functionalism of the war years. Interest in the style was revived in the 1960s, partly as a result of the work of Bevis Hillier, who entertainingly recalls his own adventures, triumphs and mistakes in writing the first book on the subject. This is the first book to explore Art Deco’s pervasive international influence in all areas of life, and is illustrated with examples from all over the world.

Art Nouveau

Stephen Escritt

Art Nouveau

бумажная книга

At the turn of the nineteenth century, Art Nouveau was both Europe and America’s boldest and most fashionable style. It could be seen in the sinuous ironwork of the new Paris Metro stations, the curving asymmetry of Lalique’s jewellery and Tiffany’s Japanese-inspired glassware. Art Nouveau brought a new decorative language to furniture, jewellery and graphic arts, as well as architecture, sculpture and painting. Known by a variety of names – Jugendstil in Germany, Secession style in Austria, the Modernista movement in Catalonia – it was a truly international "new art" for a new age. This is the first book to examine Art Nouveau worldwide in the context of the issues of the age, from fin-de-siecle anxieties about the pressures...

Arts And Crafts Houses II

Arts And Crafts Houses II

бумажная книга

These houses are masterpieces of domestic Arts and Crafts architecture and among the best preserved examples. Hill House is a unified aesthetic conception – combining Arts and Crafts honesty with Art Nouveau decoration and distinctly Scottish elements. The Homestead is one of Voysey’s finest achievements: a private house but also one built for entertaining. The Gamble House is the enoblement of the California bungalow image, yet a building of striking intimacy. These commissions share similarities – they were each undertaken for powerful local figures – but also possess unique characteristics; by looking at them together, one can decipher common Arts and Crafts predilections and examine the different responses of the architects...

Arts And Crafts Masterpieces

Arts And Crafts Masterpieces

бумажная книга

Three outstanding "public" buildings from different countries demonstrate how Arts and Crafts architects worked within varying environments. St Andrew’s Church, Roker, is a striking creation – a collaboration of work by architect, artists and craftsmen builders; Glasgow School of Art is a synthesis of opposites – austere and delicate, dark and light, derivative yet innovative; and the First Church of Christ Scientist, Berkeley, is versatile, colourful and inventive. The authors of these volumes describe how each building responds to its context, while examining its unique character. Studying the buildings in one volume enables the reader to decipher their shared influences along with the larger historical and geographical contexts...

Arts And Crafts Style

Isabelle Anscombe

Arts And Crafts Style

бумажная книга

The Arts and Crafts movement flourished in the 1870s and 1880s. At its heart was a search for a return to simplicity, quiet beauty and honesty of construction – artists and craft workshops produced textiles, furniture, ceramics and metalwork which raised everyday objects to the level of the decorative arts. This illustrated survey examines the movement in Europe and North America.

Arts And Crafts Houses I

Arts And Crafts Houses I

бумажная книга

These houses are beautiful studies in Arts and Crafts design. The influential Red House, designed for William Morris in 1859, is a seminal ‘modern’ building, conceived as a whole both inside and out. Melsetter House was designed by William Lethaby, a disciple of Morris and Webb; it embodies the principles of simplicity, strength and harmony with nature. Goddards was one of several Arts and Crafts houses which Lutyens designed in Surrey, and is notable for his subtle handling of materials and colours. While the three buildings vary in setting, they share common themes and studying them together allows the reader a deeper insight into the development of Arts and Crafts domestic architecture.

Baroque Baroque. The culture of excess

Stephen Calloway

Baroque Baroque. The culture of excess

бумажная книга

Now available for the first time in paperback, this extraordinary book examines the ‘culture of excess’ in all its twentieth-century manifestations. Fashion, film, photography, design and decoration: all feature in Stephen Calloway’s consideration of the colourful, the opulent and the theatrical. The author examines early examples of Baroque excess – by the Sitwells, Cecil Beaton, Angus McBean and others – as well as the darker Baroque spirit of the wartime Neo-Romantics or film-makers such as Fellini and Jarman. Tracing the Baroque tendency into the 1990s, he shows how ideas have cross-fertilized, providing links between such unlikely bedfellows as Leon Bakst and Luis Bunuel, Coco Chanel and Nigel Coates, Liberace and Lacroix....

Beware Wet Paint

бумажная книга

A founder partner of the leading design firm Pentagram, Alan Fletcher is considered by many in the graphic design world to be a contemporary master, known for his sharp and unerring sense of style. From the initial brief to the often award-winning outcome, here are more than a hundred of Fletcher’s design solutions. Grouped into thematic chapters for instructive reference, the projects demonstrate his lithe and lateral jumps, his skills and techniques and his ability to fuse interpretation, aesthetics and function with apparent ease. The commentary shows how each graphic idea was developed, giving insights both into the individual project and into the way in which the design process can be manipulated.

Bill Jacklin

бумажная книга

Bill Jacklin is one of the most exciting and individual artists of the generation that first came to prominence in the 1960s. From the start, he seemed destined to swim against the stream. In an era of Pop Art he chose to be an abstract artist, producing intricate patterns of grids and dots. When he had achieved success in this style, he returned to a type of realistic representation. He was and is an obsessed painter, driven by his own compulsions to follow an individual path. This book provides the definitive mid-career survey of this British and American artist.

Breuer Houses

бумажная книга

The Hungarian-born architect Marcel Breuer (1902–81) rose to prominence as a student under Walter Gropius at the Bauhaus, and became a master as head of the furniture workshop. He emigrated to the United States in 1937, where he taught at Harvard University, influencing a generation of practitioners. As the head of his own firm, Breuer became known for designs as diverse and powerful as the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the UNESCO headquarters in Paris and the iconic ‘Wassily’ chair – the first chair to use tubular steel, which revolutionized the furniture industry. Breuer, like many architects who work simultaneously on small- and large-scale commissions, used residential architecture as a laboratory for all of his...

Catherine Puglisi

Caravaggio

бумажная книга

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) was one of the most innovative painters of his time, and one of the greatest artists of any age. Rescued from neglect, he has become a cultural icon in the late twentieth century, not only for his art but also because of his violent and tragic life. Catherine Puglisi’s highly praised monograph, now available for the first time in paperback, supersedes all previous studies of the artist. Making full use of new research and dramatic recent discoveries, she has produced a precise, clear-headed and comprehensive work of scholarship that also provides a moving biography of the artist and a penetrating analysis of the genius with which he absorbed and transformed the artistic tradition of...

Antoni Gaudi’s Expiatory Church of the Sagrada Familia, the Grand Central Terminal by Whitney Warren and Charles Wetmore and the Sydney Opera House by Jorn Utzon are all instantly recognizable buildings and symbols of national and metropolitan pride. They are, however, much more than just civic monuments – they have set new standards, breaking with all precedent in their unique three-dimensional forms. Each building is an enduring source of inspiration for students and fellow architects, and bears witness to the free-ranging imagination and genius of its architect. Together, they provide valuable insights into the role of civic architecture.

Contemporary California Houses

бумажная книга

Frank Gehry’s Schnabel House, the Lawson-Westen House by Eric Owen Moss and the Drager House by the late Franklin D Israel are three key buildings in the development of a recognized style of Californian residential architecture. The houses perpetuate the Los Angeles tradition – accomplished and exuberant, they are characterized by shifts in geometry, frequent use of utilitarian materials and subtle subdivisions. Complex enough to be confusing at first glance, these exhilarating designs blur the distinction between art and architecture and helped to establish their architects as masters of spatial manipulation

This stimulating introductory survey traces the origins and development of these two revolutionary twentieth-century art movements, exploring the full range of artistic production, including ?lm, photography, collage, painting, graphics and object making.
