Описание: Figurative art is currently riding high. Contemporary works depicting the human form grace the walls of public institutions and commercial galleries alike. Champions of paint, such as Katherine Bernhardt and Adrian Ghenie; photographic artists, such as Gillian Wearing and Cindy Sherman; Charles Avery’s drawings, Grayson Perry's tapestries and Kara Walker's silhouettes – these and many other artists from diverse backgrounds are working in a range of media to explore new ways to depict the human form. Charlotte Mullins explores the reasons behind this resurgence and considers what the figure means to the artists who depict it in their practice. Her accessible yet highly perceptive introduction includes works by 70 artists, all created in the past five years. These artists successfully employ the figure to help make sense of the mercurial, fast-paced and challenging world we live in.

Описание: The experience of a person today who views paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer and other Dutch Old Masters differs radically from the experience of the Dutch
man or woman who may have seen the same paintings three centuries ago. This is an exploration of the way in which paintings were displayed and comprehended in 17th-century
Holland. It offers many insights into life in the Dutch Golden Age as well as ways of interpreting the paintings of this period.
Klaske Muizelaar and Derek Phillips closely
examine how paintings reflected and influenced the domestic and imaginative lives of the Dutch people, particularly in Amsterdam. They consider men and women as the producers,
subjects and viewers of art, uncovering 17th-century assumptions about the nature of men and women, ideals of sexually appropriate conduct, and actual sexual practices. The work
concludes with an examination of what is altered when works that were created for viewing in the home become museum objects.
