Описание: Originally published in 1938 when Kenneth Clark was director of the National Gallery, London, this book presents Clark's favorite details from paintings in the museum's collection. Newly updated and handsomely illustrated, this landmark book juxtaposes pairs of details rarely viewed together----such as cupids from Velazquez's Rokeby Venus and Correggio's The School of Love----to illuminate fascinating analogies and contrasts between paintings and artists. Clark's erudite but accessible responses to these works are broad in scope and approach, and range from a few lines to an entire history of the still life. Featuring all new color reproductions, One Hundred Details serves as an introduction to art history and offers a unique and intimate look at these paintings through the discerning eye of a world-renowned art historian and director.

Описание: Graham Murphy explores the origins of the National Trust through the lives of its three founders - Robert Hunter, Octavia Hill and Hardwicke Rawnsley - and provides a fascinating documentary of the nineteenth century open space movement. All three were far-sighted individuals with vigorous campaigning track records. Robert Hunter was a London lawyer who conducted several high-profile court battles on behalf of the Corporation of London and the Commons Preservation Society to save open spaces like Epping Forest, Wimbledon Common and Hampstead Heath from development, protecting Londoners' ancient common rights of access. Octavia Hill is remembered for transforming ramshackle properties into well-ordered tenements for working class families. Her recognition of the benefits of access to open spaces in which workers could relax and enjoy nature led to the creation of numerous public gardens across London. Hardwicke Rawnsleyis campaigning credentials were won when he joined the battle to preserve the unspoilt Cumbrian Lake District from a series of railway routes proposed by quarry owners. Here Graham Murphy charts the careers of the National Trust's first chairman, chief fundraiser and secretary, detailing the complex battles which ultimately drew them together to form what is now the largest voluntary organisation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
