Описание: In this insightful book, which is a revisionist mathematics history as well as a revisionist art history, Tony Robbin, well known for his innovative computer
visualizations of hyperspace, investigates different models of the fourth dimension and how these are applied in art and physics. Robbin explores the distinction between the slicing, or
Flatland, model and the projection, or shadow, model. He compares the history of these two models and their uses and misuses in popular discussions.
Robbin breaks new
ground with his original argument that Picasso used the projection model to invent cubism, and that Minkowski had four-dimensional projective geometry in mind when he structured
special relativity. The discussion is brought to the present with an exposition of the projection model in the most creative ideas about space in contemporary mathematics such as
twisters, quasicrystals, and quantum topology. Robbin clarifies these esoteric concepts with understandable drawings and diagrams.
Robbin proposes that the powerful role
of projective geometry in the development of current mathematical ideas has been long overlooked and that our attachment to the slicing model is essentially a conceptual block that
hinders progress in understanding contemporary models of spacetime. He offers a fascinating review of how projective ideas are the source of some of today's most exciting
developments in art, math, physics, and computer visualization.

Описание: Shadows are holes in light. They are see all the time and sometimes noticed, but their part in our visual experience of the world is mysterious. This text draws
on contemporary cognitive science, 18th-century theories of visual perception and art history to discuss shadows and the visual knowledge they can offer.
The author begins
by describing the physical constitution and different varieties of shadows. He then sketches the 18th-century empirical/nativist debate on the role of shadows in the perception of
shape. Next, he surveys modern research by cognitive scientists and machine vision workers, explaining how research is divided on the issue of how far and by what means shadows
help or hinder perception of shape.
The book continues the exploration by recounting a neglected episode of shadow theory, the observations of a group of mid-18th-century
French scientists and artists on shadows as related to light and space. Finally he sets these various shadow universes into relation with each other, addressing the special problem of
painting shadows and analyses Chardin's painting, "The Young Draughtsman", in which shadow painting is both medium and theme. The book includes an appendix that situates and
summarizes the shadow system of Leonardo da Vinci, which has had a strong - though partly underground influence on thinking about shadows - for 500 years.

Описание: This book chronicles the invention of an art - and equally, the art of invention. Two men who had long been friends and scientific colleagues became close
collaborators on the public announcement of the discovery of photography in 1839. At the beginning of that year, William Henry Fox Talbot had been surprised by the announcement in
Paris that Louis Daguerre had invented a photographic process.
His subsequent actions, and those of his rival, mirrored the competitive economic race, and the differences in
support of science and art, between France and Britain. There was no technical breakthrough to account for the explosive growth of interest and activity. Both the camera and the
necessary chemistry had co-existed for some time and this book addresses the question of why rather than how photography was finally invented.
Why did Talbot wait so long
to reveal a process that he had mastered years earlier? Why did Sir John Herschel, the pre-eminent Victorian scientist, and an accomplished artist, make such fundamental contributions
to the process and yet take so few photographs himself? Who or what provided the visual training that allowed Talbot to become the first photographic artist?Larry Schaaf employs
hundreds of little-studied letters, notebooks and diaries to illuminate the intellectual and artistic development and relationship of these two men. Much of the story lies in very human
concerns; the weather, politics, family pressures and ill health had as much to do with developments as any scientific or artistic concerns. Both men were humanists of diverse interests,
both were fellows of the Royal Society, both had strong female role models, and for both science and art were inextricably linked.
The remarkable story of this invention is
illustrated by more than 100 near-facsimile reproductions in colour and multi-coloured duotones of some of the earliest photographs ever made.

Описание: Depicting the Paris of his day, Edouard Manet (18321883) captured the nineteenth-century urban experience, legitimising modern life as an artistic subject. His detached, frank mode of looking and his subversive handling of both paint and subject-matter shocked his contemporaries, and eventually established his reputation as the father of modern painting. This remarkable book explores Manets portraiture, a significant yet often neglected aspect of his work, embracing examples from throughout his career. Leading authorities provide a thorough review of the artists stylistic evolution, considering the influence of seventeenth-century Dutch painters, parallels with the work of Renoir and links with early photography. Lavishly illustrated with paintings, works on paper, and photographs of models and sitters, this landmark study throws new light on the quintessential painter of modernity.

Описание: Throughout his long working life, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) produced large-format portraits and subject pictures. From the mid-1870s to the mid-1880s-the decade of Impressionism-his vertical, grand-scale canvases were among the artist's most daring and ambitious presentations of contemporary life and fashion. Today they rank among the masterpieces of Impressionism. This stunning book offers fresh insights into Renoir's complex ambitions as a young artist, when he submitted works to both the avant-garde impressionist exhibitions and the official Salon. While painting in the new impressionist style, Renoir remained committed to the full-length format, which was eschewed by most of his fellow impressionists as too traditional. This format afforded Renoir the opportunity to devote himself to the heroic painting of everyday life, and also to linger on the finest details of his figures' fashionable costumes and accessories. Ten iconic canvases display the rich variety of this artist's painterly technique. They reveal the sheer virtuosity of his brushwork in creating silk, lace, mink, and taffeta for shimmering ball gowns, sumptuous furs, chic Parisian day dresses, and glamorous theatrical costumes. These paintings capture the faces and fashions of Renoir's Paris. Extensively illustrated, the book draws upon contemporary criticism, literature, and archival documents to explore the motivation behind Renoir's full-length figure paintings, and technical studies of the canvases shed new light on the artist's working methods.
