Описание: Featuring fifty of Frank Gehry’s most important projects, this lavish monograph presents the full range of the architect’s work from the past six decades.
Arranged chronologically, this book follows the arc of Gehry’s career, from his early residential projects through the public and cultural facilities his studio is currently focused on. The book explores the evolution of Gehry’s work, and how he has ceaselessly embraced formal, technological and constructional innovations, while his practice has never wavered from his vision. It examines his work in the context of the urban environment, showing how Gehry continually strives to challenge the idea of the city, creating urban buildings that respond to their surroundings without trivializing them. The buildings profiled here—including the Vitra International Furniture Manufacturing Facility and Design Museum in Switzerland, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the 8 Spruce Street Skyscraper (Beekman Tower) in New York, and the Fondation Louis Vuitton—are represented in dazzling color photographs as well as preparatory drawings, plans, and models. From his early years working within the L.A. Art Scene, to his Pritzker-winning recognition, to his pioneering research into the application of computer-aided-design in all aspects of the building design process from the first sketches to the final elements of construction, Frank Gehry, now in his eighth decade, continues to surprise and inspire the public. This informative, fascinating volume is a must-have for his ardent fans and anyone interested in architecture.

Описание: Sacred Christian art objects--including tabernacles, plates, bottles, bibs, votives, crosses, and more--reveal the amazing skill and creativity of Greek craftsmen living in the predominantly Muslim Ottoman Empire. Precious metals, like gold and silver, beautifully decorated with carvings, embossed, and adorned with precious stones like rubies and sapphires, are pictured here and analyzed in terms of historical and artistic significance. The objects come from the Greek Orthodox community living on what is now the Turkish coast, under the rule of the Ottoman Empire from the 14th through 17th centuries.

Even 30 years after his death, Steve McQueen remains an icon of cool. His image continues to appear in advertising and pop culture, and car, motorcycle, and racing fans embrace him as one of their own. Now comes this volume featuring rare photography and chronicling McQueen's fascination with and passion for all things internal-combustion powered. McQueen's movie characters always had a great motorcycle or car--from the 650cc "BMW" motorcycle (a disguised Triumph) in "The Great Escape" (1963) to the Gulf Porsche 917 race car he raced in "Le Mans" (1971). His need for speed propelled him from Hollywood into a number of top off-road motorcycle races, including the Baja 1000, Mint 400, and Elsinore Grand Prix. Determined to be ahead of the pack, McQueen trained vigorously, weight lifting, running, and studying martial arts. "Steve McQueen A Passion for Speed "reflects a life lived in the moment and with the pedal to the metal.

This delightful book of writer-to-writer correspondence joins a full shelf of volumes in the genre, yet it is perhaps the first set of such letters ever transacted via the Internet. Also unusual, at least for correspondents in the twenty-first century, is that Frederic Raphael and Joseph Epstein have never met, nor even spoken to each other. But what is most rare about this book is the authors' abundant talent for entertaining their readers, as much when the topic is grave as when it is droll.
Raphael and Epstein agree to embark on a year-long correspondence, but other rules are few. As the weeks progress, their friendship grows, and each inspires the other. Almost any topic, large or small, is considered: they write of schooling, parents, wives, children, literary tastes, enmities, delights, and beliefs. They discuss their professional lives as writers, their skills or want of them, respective experiences with editors, producers, and actors, and, in priceless passages scattered throughout the letters, they assess such celebrated figures as Gore Vidal, Christopher Hitchens, Sontag/Leibowitz, Malcolm Gladwell, Harold Bloom, George Steiner, Harold Pinter, Isaiah Berlin, George Weidenfeld, and Robert Gottlieb, among many others. Epstein and Raphael capture a year in their letters, but more, they invite us into an intimate world where literature, cinema, and art are keys to self-discovery and friendship.

Описание: Son of the famous Thomas Mann, homosexual, drug-addicted, and forced to flee from his fatherland, the gifted writer Klaus Mann's comparatively short life was as artistically productive as it was devastatingly dislocated. Best-known today as the author of Mephisto, the literary enfant terrible of the Weimar era produced seven novels, a dozen plays, four biographies, and three autobiographies--among them the first works in Germany to tackle gay issues--amidst a prodigious artistic output. He was among the first to take up his pen against the Nazis, as a reward for which he was blacklisted and denounced as a dangerous half-Jew, his books burnt in public squares around Germany, and his citizenship revoked. Having served with the U.S. military in Italy, he was nevertheless undone by anti-Communist fanatics in Cold War-era America and Germany, dying in France (though not, as all other books contend, by his own hand) at age forty-two. Powerful, revealing, and compulsively readable, this first English-language biography of Klaus Mann charts the effects of reactionary politics on art and literature and tells the moving story of a supreme talent destroyed by personal circumstance and the seismic events of the twentieth century.

Описание: An account by Frederic Eden - Gertrude Jekyll's brother-in-law and Sir Anthony Eden's great uncle - of a garden that he acquired, planted and cultivated around the turn of the 20th century. First published by Country Life in 1903, and reissued in France in 2002, it is engagingly illustrated with woodcuts in the style of Poliphilus' Dream, and high-class photographs, and tells the story of the creation of an English garden - complete with an orchard and a cow for fresh milk - in the most improbable site imaginable on the Giudecca. The garden became, unsurprisingly, a resort of poets and aesthetes, and, having been given to Princess Aspasia of Greece, ended up as the property of the Austrian artist Hundertwasser, who died in February 2000. Now a 'monumento nazionale', the Giardino Eden is still there, but closed to the public until funds for its restoration become available.
Описание: How French Artists and Intellectuals Survived the Nazi Occupation. The German occupation of France from 1940 to 1945 presented wrenching challenges for the nation`s artists and intellectuals. Some were able to flee the country; those who remained, including Gide and Celine, Picasso and Matisse, Cortot and Messiaen, and Cocteau and Gabin, responded in various ways. This fascinating book is the first to provide a full account of how France`s artistic leaders coped under the crushing German presence. Some became heroes, others villains; most were simply survivors.
