Описание: Selling Russia’s Treasures documents one of the great cultural dramas of the twentieth century: the sale, by a cash-hungry Soviet government, of the artistic treasures accumulated by the Russian royal family, aristocracy, and church over the centuries and nationalized after the October 1917 revolution. An astonishing variety of objects, from icons and illuminated manuscripts to Faberge eggs and Old Master paintings, entered the collections of wealthy westerners like Andrew Mellon; in fact, the canvases he purchased from the Hermitage now form the core of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
Written by the leading experts in the field and long regarded as the definitive treatment of its subject, the original Russian edition of Selling Russia’s Treasures is sought after by scholars and laymen alike. Now, for the first time, this important book is made available in English, in a revised and expanded edition that includes new material on the secret files of the Hermitage, the sale of religious art, and the loss of twentieth-century French paintings from the Museum of New Western Art.
Numerous color plates reunite long-dispersed masterworks, if only on the page, and rare photographs and archival documents help bring the buried history of the “Stalin sales” to light. Several appendices—including a checklist of pieces sold from Russia’s crown jewels, a chronology, and biographies of key figures—add to the value of this volume, which not only reveals an important episode of cultural history, but is also relevant to contemporary debates about museum deaccessioning and the repatriation of cultural objects.
Автор: Miller, Lesley Ellis Название: Selling Silks ISBN: 1851777814 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781851777815 Издательство: Abrams Рейтинг: Цена: 700 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (2 шт.) Описание: In 1764, British Customs confiscated a book containing hundreds of silk samples of different qualities from French agents who were attempting to sell them illegally in London. The merchant's sample book acquired in 1972 by the V&A may be this very book, a fascinating record of the eighteenth-century French and English silk industries and their commercial practices. Alongside a full and faithful reproduction of the whole album, Lesley Miller sets in context the role of the book as a marketing tool from the premier European silk-weaving centre of Lyon and as a model for Spitalfields manufacturers.
Описание: The ecologically inspired planning and innovative architecture created at The Sea Ranch in the mid-1960s caused a quiet revolution in architecture. When the region, a former sheep ranch and lumbering area, was rediscovered for its beauty in the 1960s, it was radically developed as a community that would exist in harmony with its environment. This revised and updated edition of the now-classic monograph contains ten additional projects without sacrificing any of the originally included, lavishly illustrated work. New projects include work by many of the same renowned architects. Also including an updated account of the ongoing development process and land management issues, the revision proves the continued relevance of The Sea Ranch as it enters its fiftieth year--and this monograph remains its definitive portrait.
