Описание: Through their inimitable mixture of eroticism, subdued elegance and decadent luxury, Newton's pictures reflect in the highest aesthetic quality an obsession with human vanity - from female exhibitionism to male voyeurism. With technical perfection, an extremely detailed style and a relentless directness, Newton staged the neverending psychodrama that contrasts glamour with the need for admiration, self-confidence with the desire for self-presentation, and Eros with Thanatos. Private Property was originally a three-part portfolio containing 45 black-and-white photographs. It includes Newton's best work from the period 1972-1983 - an exquisite assortment of fashion shots, portraits, and erotic motifs which are all based on real locations and luxurious life styles. The entire sequence of picture from the Private Property portfolio is included in our book which first appeared in 1989.

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.

Cars and rock 'n roll have always gone hand in hand. Whether it's a garage band piling into some decrepit rig to get to the next gig or a killer guitar riff blasting from a Mustang, rock 'n roll keeps us moving when we're behind the wheel.
It's no surprise, then, that some of the music world's big names are also serious car guys. Jimmie Vaughn (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Billy Joel, Brian Johnson (AC/DC), J. Geils, Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), and others each spend as much time behind the wheel as they can. Hot rods, customs, muscle cars, motorcycles, race cars, and sports cars--the variety of vehicles is as eclectic as rock 'n roll itself.
"Rockin' ""Garages "showcases 20 top performers, their cars, and their garages. Authors Tom Cotter and Ken Gross profile each musician, revealing the story behind their moto-lust and what drives their car collecting. Each profile is complemented by Michael Alan Ross' top-notch photography. "Rockin' ""Garages "puts you behind the wheel with some of your favorite musicians.
Описание: This fully updated and beautifully redesigned handbook is the essential guide to the encyclopedic collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Divided into four sections--Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Contemporary--the handbook features more than 500 masterpieces from the museum's world-renowned holdings, each handsomely illustrated in color and accompanied by a brief text written by the museum's curators. Each section integrates a wide variety of media, including paintings, works on paper, sculptures, decorative arts, costumes and textiles, arms and armor, and photography.
Expanded entries provide in-depth information on some of the most historically significant and beloved objects, such as a 16th-century Indian temple hall, Grace Kelly's wedding dress, and Marcel Duchamp's Etant donnes. Other passages discuss the contributions of several of the museum's most important donors, exploring the idea of the Philadelphia Museum of Art as "a collection of collections."
