Описание: The seventeenth century saw a tremendous thematic and technical development in the realm of painting as artists experimented with realism and anatomical exactitude, and gave free expression to themes of sensuality. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Velazquez Venus at Her Mirror, also known as The Rokeby Venus. In this absorbing and comprehensive study Andreas Prater uses the much-studied and imitated painting to trace Venuss depiction in art through the centuries.

Описание: Shrouded by the thick clouds of hot, dense atmosphere, the planet Venus - Earth's closest neighbour in space - remained mysterious until recent decades.
Today, with data from contemporary observations and from Russian and American spacecraft, Venus has moved into sharper focus. This comprehensive book provides an up-to-date
and detailed analysis of the nature of Venus.
The authors, experts in planetary science from Russia and the United States, examine all the principal aspects of Venus, with
particular attention paid to the planet's formation, the development of a runaway greenhouse effect, and Venus' evolution into a planet completely different from others in our solar
system. Integrating data from Galileo, Magellan, Pioneer-Venus, Venera sand other space missions, this book summarizes the history of Venus, covers the atmosphere, geomorphology
and tectonic history of the planet, and considers its geology. The authors offer various theories to explain evolutionary processes in the solar system and to unveil such mysteries as
Venus' slow retrograde rotation, its lack of magnetic field, and and its bizarre atmospheric dynamics.
Illustrations include images of Venus' surface, some of which were
obtained by Soviet spacecraft.
