Описание: Revolution: Russian Art, 1917-1932 encapsulates a momentous period in Russian history that is vividly expressed in the diversity of art produced between 1917, the year of the October Revolution, and 1932 when Stalin began to suppress the avant-garde and its debates. Based around the great exhibition of 1932 held at the State Russian Museum in Leningrad, the book explores the fascinating themes and artistic developments of the first fifteen years of the Soviet state, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, posters, graphics and film. The exhibition itself was to be the swansong of avant-garde art in Russia: new policies quickly ensured that Socialist Realism - collective in production, public in manifestation and Communist in ideology - was to become the only acceptable art form. This volume is a timely and authoritative exploration of how modern art in all its forms flourished, was recognised, celebrated, and broken by implacable authority all within fifteen years.

Описание: In the first half of the twentieth century Mexico was home to a burgeoning of art comparable in energy to the political revolution that shook the country between 1910 and 1920. This surge of artistic activity is the subject of this compelling new book, which presents the work of Mexican artists – from the social-realist painters Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros to the photographers Agustin Jimenez and Manuel Alvarez Bravo – alongside that of their international contemporaries who visited Mexico in search of inspiration, political sympathies or an alternative way of life, figures as diverse as Philip Guston, Josef and Anni Albers, and Edward Burra. Illustrated with some 150 striking images, Adrian Locke’s incisive text explores the artistic documentation of the dramatic changes wrought by the revolution, the government’s role in employing artists to promote its reforms, the emergence of a native modernism, and the remarkable contribution of European and American artists and intellectuals, including Eisenstein, Trotsky and Andre Breton, to Mexico’s cultural renaissance.
Описание: Culled from the archives of the prestigious 65-year-old photo agency founded by Henri Cartier Bresson, this collection of images from internationally renowned photographers is a compelling record of the recent decades of worldwide revolution.
The history of revolution is as old as humanity; yet it is only since the invention of photography that we have been able to discern the realities of these conflicts from the distance of time. Starting with the Hungarian uprising in 1956 and culminating with the most recent triumphs and tragedies of the »Arab Spring«, this book brings together hundreds of color and black-and-white images that depict historic events from a human perspective. Iconic images from revolutions in Prague, Nicaragua, Tiananmen Square, Romania, Ukraine, Poland, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and other locations are introduced in double-page spreads featuring the images of Magnum photographers such as Raymond Depardon, Burt Glinn, Rene Burri, Josef Koudelka, Susan Meiselas, and many more. Introduced by renowned »New Yorker« journalist Jon Lee Anderson, and featuring texts and interviews by Paul Watson, this uplifting and important book offers, for the first time, a collective understanding of the universal dream of freedom and the inevitability of change.
Автор: Laurenza Название: Art and Anatomy in Renaissance Italy - Images from a Scientific Revolution ISBN: 030017957X ISBN-13(EAN): 9780300179576 Издательство: Yale University Press Рейтинг: Цена: 1206 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (2 шт.) Описание: Known as the "century of anatomy", the 16th century in Italy saw an explosion of studies and treatises on the discipline. Medical science advanced at an unprecedented rate, and physicians published on anatomy as never before. Simultaneously, many of the period's most prominent artists - including Leonardo and Michelangelo in Florence, Raphael in Rome, and Rubens working in Italy - turned to the study of anatomy to inform their own drawings and sculptures, some by working directly with anatomists and helping to illustrate their discoveries. The result was a rich corpus of art objects detailing the workings of the human body with an accuracy never before attained.
Art and Anatomy in Renaissance Italy examines this crossroads between art and science, showing how the attempt to depict bone structure, musculature, and our inner workings - both in drawings and in three dimensions - constituted an important step forward in how the body was represented in art. While already remarkable at the time of their original publication, the anatomical drawings by 16th-century masters have even foreshadowed developments in anatomic studies in modern times.
Описание: Women have participated in war throughout history, but their experience in Russia during the First World War was truly exceptional. Between the war's
beginning and the October Revolution of 1917, approximately 6,000 women answered their country's call. These courageous women became media stars throughout Europe and
America, but were brushed aside by Soviet chroniclers and until now have been largely neglected by history.
Laurie Stoff draws on deep archival research into previously
unplumbed material, including many first-person accounts, to examine the roots, motivations, and legacy of these women. She reveals that Russia was the only nation in World War I
that systematically employed women in the military, marking the first time that a government run by men had organized women for combat. And although they were originally envisioned
as propaganda - promoting patriotism and citizenship to inspire the thousands of males who had been deserting or refusing to fight - Russian women also proved themselves more than
capable in combat.
Describing the formation, provisioning, and training of the units, Stoff sheds light on their social and educational backgrounds, while recounting a number
of amazing individual stories. She tells how Maria Bochkareva, commander of the First Russian Women's Battalion of Death, and her unit met its baptism of fire in combat and how
Bochkareva later traveled to the U.S. and met President Wilson.
We also meet Maria Bocharnikova, who served with the First Petrograd Women's Battalion that defen
ed the Winter Palace during the Bolshevik Revolution. Stoff also chronicles the exploits of the Second Moscow Women's Battalion of Death, Third Kuban Women's Shock Battalion,
and the First Women's Naval Detachment. Stoff's remarkable account rescues from oblivion an important but still little-known aspect of Russia's experience in World War I.
also provides new insights into gender roles during a pivotal period of Russia's development and resonates with the current debates over the role of women in warfare.
Описание: Pop art created a fresh new outlook using everyday objects and design conflating high and low culture into a bright bold aesthetic. Fueled by the prestigious art schools in London specifically the Royal College of Art, the Pop artists of the late 1950s and early 1960s found their voice.

Описание: In this wide-ranging study, David Craven investigates the extraordinary impact of three Latin American revolutions on the visual arts and on cultural policy. The
three great upheavals - in Mexico (1910-1940), in Cuba (1959-1989), and in Nicaragua (1979-90) - were defining moments in 20th-century life in the Americas. Craven discusses the
structural logic of each movement's artistic project - by whom, how, and for whom artworks were produced - and assesses their legacies.
In each case, he demonstrates how
the consequences of the revolution reverberated in the arts and cultures far beyond national borders. The volume not only examines specific artworks originating from each revolution's
attempt to deal with the challenge of "socializing the arts", but also the engagement of the working classes in Mexico, Cuba and Nicaragua with a tradition of the fine arts made newly
accessible through social transformation. Craven considers how each revolution dealt with the pressing problem of creating a "dialogical art" - one that reconfigures the existing artistic
resource rather than one that just reproduces a populist art to keep things as they were.
In addition, the author charts the impact on the revolutionary processes of theories
of art and education, articulated by such thinkers as John Dewey and Paulo Freire. He discusses the view of the Latin American revolutionaries, from artists to political leaders, who
defined art as a fundamental force for the transformation of society and who bequeathed new ways of thinking about the relations among art, ideology, national culture, revolution and
