Located in Chelten Hills just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the 19th-centurys epicenter of the Underground Railroad. Boasting the biggest free-black population in the country, Philadelphia and Camp William Penn, hosted the greatest anti-slavery abolitionists and Underground Railroad of that century, including Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Robert Purvis and William Still. Douglass and Tubman spoke to and rallied some of the almost 11,000 soldiers, many of them runaway or ex-slaves, who trained in eleven regiments that fought in a slew of major battles, helped to corner the Confederate General Robert E. Lee and his Rebel forces, as well as capture President Lincolns assassins. Several earned the Medal of Honor for their bravery, and many gave their lives. At a time when Americas very existence was threatened, the warriors and freedom fighters for human equality associated with Camp William Penn were a major part of the countrys salvation. The complete story is told here.

Описание: A beautifully illustrated catalogue on the most comprehensive and ambitious full-scale retrospective of Munch’s artistic oeuvre ever. In conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863–1944) in 2013, a “once in a lifetime” exhibition is produced by the Munch Museum and the National Museum of Art, Architecture, and Design in Oslo. “Munch 150” is the most comprehensive and ambitious full-scale retrospective of Munch’s artistic oeuvre ever. It includes both an exceptional number of highlights, as well as some works that are less known, and is based on extensive loans from public and private collections. The exhibition and its catalogue encompass the entire development of Munch’s art from the 1880s to his death in 1944; the primary focus will be on Munch’s paintings, prints, drawings, and photographs. They cover Munch’s oeuvre in an overarching perspective: Self-presentation and self-portraiture; Places and perception; Visual rhetoric; The Frieze of Life as a lifelong project; Munch and public life; Narration and abstraction; Figure and representation; The staging of gender; and The construction of Munch after 1944. The catalogue also reflects Munch scholarship from recent decades revitalizing the artist’s importance, and include a timeline, a biography, and an index of names and places.
Описание: David Bomberg, Dora Carrington, Mark Gertler, Paul Nash, C.R.W. Nevinson and Stanley Spencer - six of the most important and distinctive British artists of the twentieth century - had all been students together at the Slade School of Art in London. They formed part of what their drawing teacher, Henry Tonks, described as the school's last 'crisis of brilliance'.
For young British artists working in the years immediately before the Great War it was an exciting and demanding time as various Modernist movements fought for precedence: Primitivism, Futurism, Cubism, Vorticism and Expressionism. Each of the six artists found their own distinctive response. David Boyd Haycock's group biography, 'A Crisis of Brilliance', was published to much acclaim in 2009.
Jenny Uglow wrote in her review in the 'Guardian', 'We should call for a joint exhibition of [their] work, to complement the moving portrayal of their lives in this engrossing and enjoyable book.' This book marks the fulfillment of that wish. It features Haycock's selection of 70 works, ranging from their early student drawings, watercolours and oil paintings, to the first great mature works that they made during and immediately after the Great War of 1914-18.
