Описание: Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was one of the finest British artists of the twentieth century. This monograph pays tribute to the artist on the centenary of his birth. Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, who first came to international prominence with his famous "white reliefs" of the 1930s. A pioneer of abstract art in Britain, he played a significant role in the European avant-garde, forming close links with Picasso, Braque, Mondrian and others. At the same time he had a strong sense of tradition, maintaining a lifelong attachment to landscape and still-life forms. This book presents a portrait of this complex and single-minded artist, who refused to be pinned down by labels. Within a broadly chronological framework, it focuses on individual works, analysing their content as well as their appearance, and showing how the artist transformed and transcended the influences he absorbed.

Описание: Michelangelo regarded portraiture as a trivial genre, and Peter Paul Rubens did not instantly develop a preference for it either. Yet Rubens succeeded, as none other, in endowing his portraits with an almost palpable sense of immediacy, and was to become one of the greatest portraitists of all time. His most beautiful and surprising portraits are those of his immediate family. These intimate pictures were not intended for public display and are therefore considerably freer and more experimental than the likenesses he painted of influential patrons. Nothing about these private images seems idealized. They are uncommonly honest and veracious and at the same time expressive of great tenderness. While the hundreds of letters he wrote reveal very little about his emotional life, Rubens s portraits of family members testify in a special way to the affection he felt for his first and second wives, his brother and his children.

Описание: Anyone who grew up holidaying on England's beaches is familiar with the distinctive features of these historic resorts - not the exclusive, paradisiacal haunts of the rich and famous, but the gritty, often rocky shores of the Atlantic and the Irish and North Seas, filled with amusement arcades, bathing huts, beach umbrellas and people of all ages and classes. Jon Nicholson's Polaroid SX70 is the perfect vehicle to capture the colour and character of summers at the sea. At once immediate and ephemeral, these delicately hued, slightly muted images taken with original, out-of-date film stock depict the faded glory of Yarmouth's giant piers, Brighton's pebbly shores, the Blackpool Pleasure Beach amusement park, the dunes of Hemsby, and many other resorts across Britain. Each of the 70 photographs is beautifully reproduced on its own page with descriptive captions. A foreword by Joseph Galliano provides a wry, contemporary perspective on these beloved, centuries-old locations.
Описание: Cutting-edge graphic work from the Arab world and Iran that is emblematic of the cultural emancipation of this entire area. The wave of protests that started this year in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and other countries have made it clear just how much the Middle East is searching for a new identity. Young designers in the region are playing a part in this movement by increasingly emancipating themselves creatively. In their work, they are charting their own compelling course between local visual convention and a modern international style. Arabesque 2 documents the potential of this current creative emancipation in the Arab world and Iran. The book features examples of recent innovative and groundbreaking design work that is inspired by the richness of the region's visual culture. Given the important role of calligraphy in the Middle East, Arabesque 2 focuses on typography. The book presents a wide range of Arabic fonts and typefaces inspired by traditional calligraphy. These are accompanied by a rich selection of applications. Select examples of design and graffiti serve as powerful demonstrations of how text can be used illustratively. This work is particularly relevant to those creating street art and poster design. Arabesque 2 also features graphic design, logos, Edited byial design, and illustration by young designers and activists from Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates. Regardless of the location and nationality of their creators, all of the examples included in the book combine modern design with the traditional, letter-based canon of Arab forms in striking ways. The book's preface is written by John Martin, co-founder of Art Dubai. Additional texts and interviews describe the environments in which the featured designers and artists work. Edited bys Ben Wittner and Sascha Thoma round out Arabesque 2 with a CD-ROM that features four typefaces related to its themes.

This collective biography chronicles the lives and careers of the states baseball elite in words and period photographs.

The other Marylanders who hold baseballs greatest honor are Vic Willis, who pitched the dreaded grapevine sinker; famed hitter Home Run Baker, whose nickname tells his story; William Julius Judy Johnson, star third baseman from the Negro Leagues; Robert Moses Lefty Grove, the southpaw who could throw a lamb chop past a wolf; Jimmie Foxx, powerful slugger and threetime MVP; and Al Kaline, outstanding outfielder and batting champion.

Описание: Throughout her long and varied career in painting, Winifred Nicholson (1893-1981) was concerned with light, colour and radiance. Best known for her sensitive and joyful flower paintings, she married Ben Nicholson in 1920 and their mutually influential artistic relationship lasted, despite separation, until Winifred's death. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, she made regular working trips to Scotland, often accompanied by the poet Kathleen Raine. Frequently staying on the islands of Eigg and Canna and in Sandaig on the mainland, Winifred felt a deep affinity with the Scottish landscape and marvelled at the quality of light and the effects created by the ever-changing weather conditions. Her last painting expedition was to Eigg in 1980. This book is based on personal correspondence and the recollections of relatives, friends and painting companions. It examines Winifred Nicholson's love for Scotland and illustrates her Scottish paintings.

Описание: On 6 September 1995, Cal Ripken, Jr, baseballs Ironman, played in his 2,131st consecutive game, breaking Lou Gehrigs record that many thought would stand forever. The story of Cals life takes the reader from his early years in a baseball family through the minor leagues, two Most Valuable Player Awards, and his record-setting achievements as the Baltimore Orioles superstar shortstop. Addressing the Baltimore fans after the historic game, Cal explained his approach to baseball: "Whether your name is Gehrig or Ripken, DiMaggio or Robinson, or that of some youngster who picks up his bat or puts on his glove, you are challenged by the game of baseball to do your very best day in and day out. And thats all Ive ever tried to do".
