Описание: Liberty's Furniture 1875 -1915 provides the clearest and most comprehensive account of early Liberty furniture to date. A definitive work of reference, the volume outlines the company's unique contribution to the British Arts and Crafts style.Throughout the history of the Arts and Crafts Movement, Liberty & Co. always enjoyed a prominent position. With imaginative design, high-quality construction, and state-of-the-art marketing, the company was responsible for some of the most beautiful and enduring pieces of furniture from that period.
Drawing on archive material and reviews in contemporary journals and magazines, Liberty's Furniture 1875-1915 examines the key features and different styles of Liberty's furniture design, as it evolved through a variety of genres including Oriental, Arts and Crafts and 'modern country cottage'. Illustrations from the Liberty catalogues enable readers to see how both the products and promotional styles of the company developed, whilst the many colour photographs show a wide selection of items - from the Athelstan suite and Culloden sideboard to the Thebes stools and Witlaf chairs. Giving particular attention to the work of Leonard Wyburd, the man responsible for some of the most important elements of the Liberty style, this volume represents an invaluable evidence base for collectors and auction houses alike.

Описание: Self-portraits have been created by man from ancient times through to the Middle Ages and beyond, for many different reasons and in many different forms.
Juliet Heslewood, art historian and author of Mother, Lover and Child, brings together a compelling collection of artists’ self-portraits, and tells the stories behind each of the artworks featured. Looking at each work, considering its individual history and examining the motivations behind its creation can reveal much about the artist, and about the time and place in which it was made. The images are shown chronologically, and the changing nature of the subject can be seen as time rolls forward over centuries to the present day.
From Durer, Da Vinci and Rembrandt, to Van Gogh, Matisse and Kahlo, the book features over forty self-portraits and provides a fascinating combination of biographical anecdote and art history.

Описание: The crisis of modern architecture is part of a much larger crisis involving the whole question of the way we live and how we use the resources of our planet. Poor design, monotony, and inhuman scale are the results not of lack of talent nor the failures of the Modern Movement, but of a surrender to selfish interests and short-sighted economies. Richard Rogers, perhaps the most original and inventive architect at work today, is a frequent commentator on the contemporary scene. In this book, available again after some years out of print, it is especially valuable to have his philosophy of design so succinctly summarized. As a practising architect, he is in the best possible position to appreciate how economic forces can create or frustrate good design. His book is illustrated largely by examples drawn from his own work, making it a professional record as well as a manifesto for the future.

Описание: A compact edition of a major monograph, that offers insights into the life and work of the seventeenth-century master Georges de La Tour. Georges de La Tour ranks with Vermeer and the Le Nain brothers among those seventeenth-century painters whose unmistakable talent is matched only by the aura of mystery that surrounds the artists themselves. Forgotten for years and rediscovered at the beginning of the twentieth century, this artist is now recognized as one of the greatest French painters of the seventeenth century. Jaques Thuilliers groundbreaking monograph, first published in 1993, places La Tours oeuvre in the specific context of the Lorraine region where he lived and worked, but also repositions La Tour alongside the greatest European masters. Using original correspondence, archival documents, and image x-rays, Thuillier carefully constructs a picture of the artists life and practices. Under the influence of Caravaggio, La Tour created a highly personal form of realism that displays a rare poetic beauty. The attention to detail in the artists paintings, from the dirt under a saints fingernails to the wavering flame of a girls candle or a young mans side-long glance, is highlighted in full page close-ups, while the works are put into context by color reproductions of etchings and paintings that influenced, and were influenced by, La Tour. Available for the first time in a non-abridged compact edition, this beautifully designed volume, complete with an illustrated catalogue, bibliography, and translations of key documentary sources, remains the essential reference work on this important and fascinating artist.

Описание: John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) was the leading American portrait painter of his generation. This book showcases his portraits of artists, writers, actors and musicians, many of whom he knew well. These pictures were rarely the result of commissions, and Sargent was free to take a more radical approach to depicting the people he liked and admired than was possible in his formal portraiture.
