Описание: An awe-inspiring fusion of science and art, this magnificent single-volume reference features more than 130 ground-breaking anatomical illustrations by history's most brilliant artists. Dramatic and highly studied sketches dating back to the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, these images by Leonardo da Vinci, Bartolommeo Eustachius, Andreas Vesalius, Bernard Albinus, and Pietro da Cortona have given our modern world an unsurpassed appreciation and understanding of the human body. Meticulous portraits of our amazing flesh-and-blood machinery -- many accompanied by the artists' original, handwritten notes -- these time-honored renderings offer important glimpses into the human organism, both inside and out. Art lovers, as well as students of science and medicine, will thrill to these classic adaptations of muscles, limbs, skeletons, nervous and respiratory systems, and other perspectives that, centuries later, remain masterworks of anatomical artistry.

Описание: Rooted in tales both ancient and modern, these vibrant images date from the early twentieth century's Golden Age of Illustration. Edmund Dulac, a prominent artist of the period, created them for books published between 1905 and 1928. Their moods range from the shadowy foreboding of Jane Eyre to the venturesome spirits of Treasure Island and the lighthearted fantasies of A Fairy Garland. Other featured titles include Shakespeare's The Tempest, The Arabian Nights, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. French-born Edmund Dulac arrived in London in 1904, when new advances in the printing process kindled a rage for picture books. Dulac's imaginative powers and technical skills assured the popularity of his book illustrations, many of which were sold separately as fine art paintings. After World War I, when the appetite for deluxe volumes waned, the artist turned his talents in many new directions, including portraiture, theatrical costume and set design, newspaper caricature, and stamp design. This retrospective of his early works is the only such anthology available, offering a singular tribute to an artist from a halcyon era of art inspired by literature.
