Описание: Over the course of his 50-year career, the American photographer Edward Weston (1886–1958) blazed a trail into Photo-Modernism, capturing portraits, landscapes, still lifes and nudes that have established him as one of the most revered proponents of photographic art. In 1902, when he was living in Chicago, the 16-year-old Weston took up photography as a hobby, and it soon consumed most of his energy. At the age of 20, he moved to Tropico, California (now Glendale, Los Angeles County), where he built his first studio and with great purpose set about becoming a photographic artist. An examination of Weston’s sharp- and soft-focus photographs of this period reveals that he was already exhibiting the perfect sense of composition that became his hallmark. Presenting Weston’s earliest images as preserved in a series of family albums assembled by Flora, his first wife, Edward Weston: Portrait of the Young Man as an Artist compares Weston’s first naive photographic efforts with his later masterpieces, demonstrating the persistence and evolution of his singular vision to find essential form in the vernacular with an ever-increasing intensity. Weston’s early compositions, beginning with his teenage snapshots, reflect a young man who was deeply intuitive and original in his creative expression, and simultaneously embrace the same significant form as the later photography for which he is now considered a master.

Описание: The definitive survey of one of the great treasures of the English country landscape, and a jewel in the crown of British architectural heritage. Built in the 1720s for the first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole, Houghton Hall remains one of England's finest Palladian houses. A collaboration between the two defining British architects of the age - Colen Campbell and James Gibbs - and with lavish interiors by William Kent, Houghton was built expressly with an eye to reflecting the wealth, taste, and power of its owner. During the eighteenth century, Walpole also amasse the greatest collection of art in Britain, and Houghton would be a museum to the collection. Guided by the present owner, the seventh Marquess of Cholmondeley, this is a tour of the house like no other. With stunning photographs by Derry Moore - some shot specially for the book, capturing the evolution and preservation of the remarkable interiors - the book explores every aspect of the house and its grounds. Supplemented with images from the Marquess's archives, the book also reveals the range of Walpole's collection and the mastery of the craftsmen who shaped the museum around it - including paintings sold to Catherine the Great, which were returned temporarily from the Hermitage in 2013 to their original positions in the state rooms for the first time since 1797. The book is timed to coincide with a travelling exhibition of magnificent masterpieces from Houghton's permanent collection, which opens in June 2014 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and will travel to several venues across the United States.
