Описание: A Book On The Most Important Sculptures In The Louvre As Art Of The Nude From The 7Th Century Bc To 1897.
Описание: Arthur Carter`s artwork was initially inspired by his work in newspaper design. His sculptures, though purely abstract, allude to human gestures and interactions. While Carter is known for his sculpture, his drawings and paintings are revealing in their own right. This book presents the artistic vision of the fascinating man.
Описание: The 19 papers in this volume stem from a symposium that brought together academics, archaeologists, museum curators, conservators and a practising marble sculptor to discuss varying approaches to restoration of ancient stone sculptures.
Описание: The temples of Khajuraho are one of the great wonders of India. Built between about 850 and 1150, Khajuraho is renowned as much for the elegance of its architecture as for the sensuality of its sculpture. Once an important political and religious center, it is thought to have contained up to 95 Hindu and Jain temples, but today, only 25 survive--many with stunning depictions of human sexuality. The area has undergone restoration since being rediscovered in the early 19th century, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, acclaimed scholar Gilles Beguin leads readers through a tour of these amazing temples, all newly photographed by Iago Corazza.

Описание: The most attractive, provocative, and clever urban interventions by a master of the genre. In cities, where does public space stop and privacy begin? Which experiences are purely personal and which ones are driven by commercially motivated impulses? Can we see the city and ourselves for what they actually are amidst the vast array of signs and images clamoring for our attention? The American artist Brad Downey tackles these and other structural, social, and political questions in his work. With the element of surprise firmly on his side, he creates powerful interventions that disrupt the routine of our visual perception. A shopping cart becomes a sculpture, a telephone booth is filled with balloons, and a stop sign is turned upside down. Using elements from film, sculpture, painting, and drawing, Downey creates remarkable work ranging from the spectacular and headline-making to the small, delicate, and almost hidden. Downey's interventions in the cityscape can be spontaneous, subtle, and fleeting--it is precisely the way they interact with their surroundings that make them so effective. Some exist for barely half an hour before they are corrected again; others integrate themselves into the urban landscape and become a permanent work of art in the process. Downey's art discourages quick glances and celebrates the double take. It encourages the viewer to take a hard look and refreshes the powers of discrimination that so often become jaded in the visual Babylon of our times. Brad Downey earned a Master of Fine Arts in painting under the tutelage of Bruce McLean. He holds workshops throughout the world and has been invited to create his spontaneous sculptures in places including New York, Berlin, Moscow, London, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai.

Описание: Ugo Mulas and Alexander Calder. A great photographer and a great artist bound by close friendship. The visible fruit of this relationship are the hundreds of
photographs of the histrionic American artist, his family, his works, and his houses in Roxbury (USA) and Sache (France) taken by Mulas: a 'family album that showed the love for his
work and the joy that his friendship gave me'.
The carefully selected photographs presented, edited by Melina, Ugo Mulas' daughter and a well known photographer in her
own right, evidences the role of unspoken art critic played by Mulas.As Argan writes, the photographer was able to capture 'with incredible delicacy the genetic affinity between the
works and their creator, and at the same time their intimate contradiction, as if the lightness of the sculptures atoned for the sculptor's heavy bulk and their capriciousness matched his
kind-hearted, unpredictable character, the nature of which is expressed by the tufts of his white hair, ever tousled by a non-existent wind'.Born into a family of artists, Alexander Calder
(1898-1976) showed right from his infancy an approach to the manipulation of materials that was to change the course of modern art. An outstanding inventor of wire caricatures and
animals (see, for example, his famous Circus), at the start of the 1930s Calder developed into the construction of abstract sculptures in which he soon included moving pieces. These
sculptures, which he called mobiles, are among the most famous artworks of the twentieth century.
In them, Calder 'took matter and transformed it into an image as light as a
puff of air'. Ugo Mulas (1928-1973) was one of the greatest Italian photographers of the last century. His enormous interest in the world of art is attested by the photographs he took at
the various Biennali in Venice between 1954 and 1972, and by his superlative recording of the art scene in New York, which he carried out in different stages between 1964 and
Описание: On the seabed off the coast of the West Indies and Mexico, artist Jason de Caires Taylor's 'living sculptures' are a permanent embellishment to the underwater landscape. Taylor casts life-size statues from materials used to encourage reef growth and sinks them to the ocean floor. Over time, the sculptures attract corals, algae and a diverse variety of fish species and evolve into beautiful and surreal installations that adapt with their environment. This book offers a glimpse onto these awe-inspiring creations, in shots of the sculptures at various stages in their metamorphosis, plus informative text and images about the practicalities of the artist's process. An immersive tour of Taylor's underwater sculpture parks, this collection is a dazzling visual treat for ocean enthusiasts, environmentalists and art lovers.
