Описание: Originally published in 1938 when Kenneth Clark was director of the National Gallery, London, this book presents Clark's favorite details from paintings in the museum's collection. Newly updated and handsomely illustrated, this landmark book juxtaposes pairs of details rarely viewed together----such as cupids from Velazquez's Rokeby Venus and Correggio's The School of Love----to illuminate fascinating analogies and contrasts between paintings and artists. Clark's erudite but accessible responses to these works are broad in scope and approach, and range from a few lines to an entire history of the still life. Featuring all new color reproductions, One Hundred Details serves as an introduction to art history and offers a unique and intimate look at these paintings through the discerning eye of a world-renowned art historian and director.

Описание: American-born artist R.B. Kitaj (1932-2007) was one of the most controversial artists of the second-half of the twentieth century. His distinctive, highly personal and often challenging works drew on many influences ranging from literature to politics and film. The British Museum holds a near complete set of the artists proofs, the best representation of the artists graphic works in the UK. Kitaj worked in England for almost forty years until 1994 when his ill-fated retrospective exhibition at the Tate was savaged by the critics. Hurt by the hostile reception of his works in his adopted homeland and grieving for the sudden death of his young wife, the painter Sandra Fisher, Kitaj left England for good, returning to America, declaring, London is dead to me now. It was in London that he developed his early style and influenced many of his close circle of friends, including David Hockney, who he met at the RCA, and Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach. This led him to coin the term School of London, later associated with this group of purely figurative artists. This exciting and beautifully produced book amounts to the definitive collection of the artists graphic works, and is the first to examine in detail Kitajs prints for almost twenty years.

Автор: Wiggins Colin Название: Saints Alive: Michael Landy in the National Gallery ISBN: 185709560X ISBN-13(EAN): 9781857095609 Издательство: Yale University Press Рейтинг: Цена: 1096 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: British artist Michael Landy (b. 1963) is known primarily as an installation artist. His work, along with others associated with the Young British Artists (YBAs), was first catapulted to the world spotlight when it was featured in the notorious Sensation exhibition (1997). His sculptural installations and performances explore political and social themes, such as the nature of consumerism and commodity. In 2009, Landy began a three-year artist residency at the National Gallery, London. He chose to focus his project on representations of saints and their accompanying stories, often gruesome, which were once part of common culture but are now largely unknown. Landy's preoccupation with recycling narratives and repurposing imagery results in Saints Alive, the subject of this book, conceived to include drawings, collages and a series of kinetic, interactive sculptures with moving parts and sounds.
