Описание: The most complete publication to date on the complex story of the Caravaggesque style. Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) is probably the most admired, studied and universally known painter of 17th century Italy. Every knows the legend of this cursed and hot-tempered painter, who was rejected by the Roman Curia for his paintings, which were considered to be inappropriate and even scandalous. However, a more complete picture of this artist as the skilful director of a career fostered and protected by influential cardinals and important nobles families has been known for some time now, in all its complexity. Although many questions still remain regarding Caravaggios body of work, it is certain that he never formed a proper school or studio. Caravaggio did however have a substantial circle of followers throughout Europe, an unofficial school formed by those who knew him personally and were in direct contact with his works, and also by those who discovered his work following his death. PLEASE NOTE: text is in Italian with translated English foreword only.

Описание: Eight French painters born after 1870 are brought together for the first time in
an exhibition that highlights their mutual affinities and charts their respective
influences and evolutions.
Aside from Gaston Balande (1880-1971), who is well known for his art deco wall
murals designed for transatlantic ships, and Paul Deltombe (1878-1971), who
benefited from a retrospective exhibition in 1970, the work of the other painters
collected here has remained uncelebrated for far too long. The present exhibition
and its catalogue aim to repair this oversight, as well as to reignite the study of this
generation of French painters who, without turning their back on the avant-gardists,
concentrated primarily on the traditional genre of landscape, and to a lesser degree
The 80 works of art, mainly painted between the wars, are at the crossroads of the
many influences of this creative period, where tradition and the avant-garde blended
together without restraint.
This syncretism is frequently illustrated by landscapes where the diversity reflects
the search for new effects and beautiful themes as well as an appetite for travel and
discoveries. This panorama of Douce France signals the last breath for this pictorial
style that was the inheritor and continuation of the Impressionist movement –a status that was bound to be lost forever after the Second World War.
Описание: A beautiful volume that brings to light the forgotten Le Nain brothers, a trio of 17th-century French master painters who specialized in portraiture, religious subjects, and scenes of everyday peasant life
Описание: "20th Century Painters and Sculptors" encompasses not only the most complex but the most colourful period in the development of British Art. From the tidy subject groupings of the 19th century (genre scenes, child studies, historical, landscape etc.) the modern artist has explored the most abstract and intense expressions of his art. Schools of artists have worked together, movements have espoused artistic and social theories, wars have influenced subjects. Terms like Surrealism, Abstraction, Post-impressionism, Pop Art and the Modem Movement are in constant use but not always understood or their followers known. Frances Spalding provides an introduction to this complex period followed by an illustrated Dictionary which gives biographical and (where appropriate) stylistic information about the work and development of some 7,000 artists and sculptors, many of whom are still living.

Описание: Drawing on the V&A's wide-ranging poster collection, this book maps how the poster has evolved in Britain since 1945 in the hands of graphic designers and fine artists, advertising agencies and counter-cultural groups. The range spans 'Keep Britain Tidy' campaigns, lavishly produced Benson & Hedges billboards, punk rock posters, hand-printed indictments of politicians and public art projects on the Underground. Defying regular predictions of its demise, the poster in Britain has adapted itself within a changing technological environment. It has absorbed new directions in art and design and has met unfolding social and commercial challenges. British Posters considers these developments and looks at the varying platforms that posters occupy. As part of the living skin of our cities, posters have entered into conflicts over the content and control of public space. Behind closed doors we have welcomed posters into our homes, Blu-Tacked them to our bedroom walls and made collections of them. Today, in an age of digital media and viral communication, the poster remains an irresistible proposition.

Описание: There was a time-as recently as the 1980s-when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our visual landscape.
Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. In 2010 filmmakers Faythe Levine, coauthor of Handmade Nation , and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. Sign Painters , the first anecdotal history of the craft, features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States.
Описание: Investigates the financial worlds of painters in Baroque Italy. Exploring the many variables that determined the prices asked or received by painters, this book offers major insights into the social lives, psychological disposition, and economic circumstances of a wide range of major and minor artists.
