Описание: Ancient Egyptian civilization developed its own highly individual manner of expressing visible and invisible worlds - earth and the domain of the gods - through distinctive `languages.` This book presents an art, language, and culture of extraordinary richness.
Описание: Noted for its vivid colours, elaborate use of symbols, and dedication to close observation of the natural world, the work of Pre-Raphaelite artists combines a deep engagement with the past and a modern realism that exemplifies the concerns of the age of steam travel. In Reading the Pre-Raphaelites, author Tim Barringer draws on an imaginative selection of paintings, drawings, and photographs to suggest that the dynamic energy of Pre-Raphaelitism arose out of the paradoxes at its heart.
Past and present, historicism and modernity, symbolism and realism, as well as the tensions between city and country, men and women, worker and capitalist, colonizer and colonized all make appearances within Pre-Raphaelite art. By focusing on these issues, Barringer draws together the strands of revisionist thought on the Pre-Raphaelites and provides a range of stimulating new interpretations of their work. Beautifully illustrated, the second edition of this authoritative survey traces the history of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, and includes new sections on photography as well as a revised introduction and bibliography.

Описание: There is scarcely an Egyptian temple, pyramid, obelisk, wall painting or sculpture that does not possess some hidden meaning - a meaning which can only be understood by reference to the fundamental symbolic code used by the ancient Egyptians. This book reveals the language of this ancient code, which endured for millennia. This guide offers a thematic treatment of Egyptian art. Illustrations allow the reader to see and understand ancient works as the Egyptians did themselves, and the reference section includes a glossary and guide to further reading.

Описание: This anthology brings together 20 works of scholarship on the history of the visual arts in the United States from the colonial period to 1945. The selected
essays - all written within the last two decades - reflect the interdisciplinary character of art historiography in America and the variety of approaches that contribute to the dynamism in the
field. The authors take up diverse subjects - from colonial portraits to 19th-century sculptures of women to photographic images of New York - and invite those with a general knowledge
of the history of American art to think more deeply about art and culture.
Employing many interpretive methodologies, including iconology, social history, structuralism,
psychobiography and feminist theory, the contributors to this volume combine close analysis of specific art objects or groups of objects with discussion of how these works of art
operated within their cultural contexts. The authors consider the works of such artists as John Singleton Copley, Charles Willson Peale, Georgia O'Keeffe and Jackson Pollock as they
assess how paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings and photographs have carried meaning within American society. And they investigate how the conceptualization, production and
presentation of works of art both inform and are informed by prevailing attitudes towards the role of the arts and the artist in American culture.

Описание: Abstract Expressionism is arguably the most important art movement in postwar America. Many of its creators and critics became celebrities, participating in
heated public debates that were published in newspapers, magazines, and exhibition catalogues. This up-to-date anthology is the first comprehensive collection of key critical writings
about Abstract Expressionism from its inception in the 1940s to the present day.
Ellen Landau's masterful introduction presents and analyses the major arguments and crucial
points of view that have surrounded the movement decade by decade. She then offers a selection of readings, also organized by decade, including influential statements by such artists
as Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, and Barnett Newman as well as the commentary of diverse critics. Offering new insights into the development of Abstract
Expressionism, this rich anthology also demonstrates the ongoing impact of this revolutionary and controversial movement.
Reading Abstract Expressionism is essential for the
library of any curator, scholar, or student of twentieth-century art. "I know of no equivalent record of this movement, no gathering of such wonderfully instructive documentation of the
most important collective creation of American visual culture." David Carrier, author of Principles of Art History Writing

Описание: In about 35-25 B.C.E., the Roman architect Vitruvius produced his encyclopaedic ten-book summary of the principles of Hellenistic architecture, "De architectura" ("On Architecture"). These ideas have stimulated architects ever since. In the mid-16th century, the architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) and the humanist Daniele Barbaro (1513-1570) looked to the city of Venice in order to understand and interpret Vitruvius' text, which was still in need of clarification and which would enable them to solve contemporary architectural problems. Barbaro and Palladio found in the city's medieval and Renaissance streets, palaces, churches and towers living principles that enabled them to interpret the ancient ones. By 1556, Barbaro incorporated his and Palladio's observations into their Commentaries on Vitruvius, and two distinctly new editions for different audiences followed a decade later.
Margaret D'Evelyn has gathered evidence from published and unpublished versions of the Commentaries to document how Palladio's understanding of Vitruvius influenced Barbaro. This engrossing volume also charts the invention of the illustrated architectural book and how major architect-authors, Leon Battista Alberti, Francesco di Giorgio Martini, Cesare Cesariano, Sebastiano Serlio, and Guillaume Philandrier, contributed to its development - demonstrating how Vitruvius shaped the way the city of Venice was viewed.
