Описание: While striving for a comprehensiveness that is appropriate to the breadth and scope of Wyeth's prolific oeuvre, "Andrew Wyeth: Memory & Magic" will focus on the artist's ongoing love affair with everyday things - domestic, natural and architectural. Found throughout Wyeth's portraits, landscapes and domestic interiors, these objects form patterns that illuminate core themes and reveal the artist wrestling with issues of memory, temporality, embodiment, and the metaphysical. The book will include a number of portraits, which will introduce readers to the people associated with these painted things and places. Organized chronologically and thematically, this book will explore how the artist's approach to these subjects was formed in his early career, became distinct in his middle period, and has been revisited in new and surprising ways in recent years.

Описание: From the beautiful mountains and streams of Canada and the Adirondacks to the sandy beaches of New England, from the picturesque coasts of English villages to the sunny shores of the Bahamas, Winslow Homer captured in his paintings the true magnificence of nature. For more than thirty years between 1873 and 1905, Winslow Homer turned to watercolors during his working vacations, concentrating on capturing the spirit of each place he visited with both spontaneity and intensity. Many of Homer’s most beautiful paintings focus on the interaction between humans and nature—a hunter carrying a deer on his shoulders, a man fishing from a small canoe, a girl lounging and reading in the grass, a young man driving cattle, a fisherman’s family anxiously watching for his return. It is Homer’s understanding of this important relationship between humans and nature that makes his paintings so intriguing. Winslow Homer Watercolors reproduces the best of these paintings. Large color plates allow these reproductions to be appreciated almost as much as the originals. Accompanying the more than 100 color plates is an eloquent introduction and detailed chronology of Homer’s life and artistic development. This stunning volume allows one to experience nature through the eyes of one of America’s greatest painters. It is a vision of nature from a century ago that is still appreciated today.
Описание: A visual account of the birth of graffiti and street art, showcasing as-yet-unseen works collected by preeminent artist Martin Wong. Referred to by the New York Times as an artist "whose meticulous visionary realism is among the lasting legacies of New York’s East Village art scene of the 1980s," Martin Wong (1946–1999) was firmly entrenched in the NYC street art world of the late ’70s and ’80s. City as Canvas chronicles the most important chapter in the street art movement and the artists involved. Showcasing Wong’s enormous graffiti art collection, the book contains artwork, photographs, black books, letters, postcards, posters, and flyers made by Wong and his artist friends. The book contains previously unpublished art by famous street artists such as Futura 2000, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Christopher "Daze" Ellis, LA II, Lady Pink, and Keith Haring, to name only a few. City as Canvas traces the origins of urban self-expression and the era of "outlaw" street art in New York, which primed the floodgates for graffiti art to spread worldwide.

Описание: A celebration of the uniquely vibrant architecture and interiors of classic and new Spanish-style houses in the southwestern United States, Mexico, and Spain. Casa Bohemia showcases a collection of some of the most beautifully preserved Spanish Colonial houses, from historic haciendas in Mexico to contemporary bungalows in Southern California. Thirty homes built between the late seventeenth century and the present day are featured in stunning color photography that captures architectural details inside and out and enchanting Spanish and Mexican antique furnishings and folk art. Author Linda Leigh Paul traces the history of Spanish Colonial architecture from its Iberian sources to the development of the Mission style in the Americas to the still-flourishing Spanish Revival and Mediterranean styles, with their Renaissance and Moorish influences and endlessly rich details, including ornate wrought-iron and wood balconies, colorful tiles, and graceful arches. But what all of the houses featured in Casa Bohemia have in common though they range across centuries and places as diverse as San Miguel de Allende, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Hollywood, Malibu, Texas, and Florida is a visual richness and vitality that emerges from the distinctive approaches to preservation and decoration found in each.
