Описание: Over the course of the Edo period (1600–1868), an extraordinarily large quantity of paintings, prints and illustrated books with sexual and erotic themes was produced in Japan. As urban culture expanded rapidly during the seventeenth century, erotic material was a major genre of woodblock print production. These constitute some of the finest examples of art-printing in Japan, employing deluxe materials and special printing effects. This book looks at pictures by some of the most renown artists, such as Kitagawa Utamaro and Katsushika Hokusai, who produced erotic imagery as a standard part of their work. When creating erotica, artists often played on sexual situations in everyday life: a wife catches her husband having sex with a maid, mice start copulating in imitation of humans. Erotic encounters in Edo-period woodblock prints reflect multiple perspectives – male, female, heterosexual and homosexual. Japanese erotic art is also notable for its tone of humour, much more so than in Western representations of sex. There was also frequent recourse to satire and parody, often in defiance of contemporary censorship and sumptuary regulations.

Описание: Among the immense variety of printed matters, the poster is without doubt the visual designer's supreme discipline. Every poster is a new challenge for its creator. It is a tradition for many museums, interested in cultivating a smart, artistic image, to present themselves through sophisticated posters.They are meant to arouse interest and convey the essence of an exhibition through iconic imagery. To Rene Gauch, the personal and spontaneous compliments from museum visitors and colleagues and the memories they take home are more important than national or international awards. The high quality of his works springs from a fascinating interplay of image and text. It must be a passion for artistic composition that inspired Rene Gauch to create poster masterpieces. The tools and stylistic devices of his work are precision, fantasy, playfulness and a will to experiment. The exhibitions advertised are long over, but the posters remain with us as witnesses of a whole era. Rene Gauch's iconic posters are nowadays found in museums and private collections worldwide. Text in English, Italian & German.

Depicting a multitude of underseas life forms and seashells in precise detail and vivid colors, the exquisitely rendered prints of German naturalist Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919) immediately became world famous upon their publication at the end of the nineteenth century and have inspired generations of artists, architects, designers, and scientists.

Packaged in a durable and resealable box, each of the twelve 11 x 14-inch prints is formatted to fit any ready-made frame, making this calendar a sophisticated and practical way to decorate home or office.
