Описание: This fully illustrated book accompanies one of the most comprehensive exhibitions dedicated solely to three centuries of men’s fashion.
The fashionable male may be making a comeback, but early fashion trends centered around what men—not women—were wearing. This intriguing book traces the history of men’s fashion since the 18th century, when young Englishmen imitated foreign dress and manners after touring the European continent. This phenomenon is only one of many explored in sections titled "Revolution/Evolution", "East/West", "Uniformity", "Body Consciousness", and "The Splendid Man". In addition to numerous illustrations of extant menswear, the book captures the 19th-century dandy, a more restrained brand of expensive elegance which became the hallmark of Savile Row; the post-WWII mod, who relished the colorful styles of Carnaby Street; and the 21st-century man—ultra-chic in a sleek suit by day, wearing a flowered tuxedo by night. "Reigning Men" illuminates connections between history and high fashion, traces cultural influences over the centuries, examines how uniforms have profoundly shaped fashionable dress, and reveals that women aren’t the only ones who cinch and pad their bodies. Beautifully produced and lavishly illustrated, this eye-opening book will certainly appeal to men and women alike.
Автор: Stewart, Rachel Название: Town house in georgian london ISBN: 0300152779 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780300152777 Издательство: Yale University Press Рейтинг: Цена: 3292 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: This book takes a fresh look at a familiar building type - the town house in eighteenth-century London - and investigates the circumstances in which individuals made decisions about living in London, and particularly about their West End house. It uncovers what occupants of town houses thought about their property, why and how they chose or built it, paid for it, used it, decorated it and sold or bequeathed it, and what uses it had for them beyond simply accommodation. For the first time, this book takes as a starting point the houseowner, occupant or architect's client, and through extensive and original use of anecdotal evidence, opens up a wealth of unforeseen values, uses and connections attaching to the house. It offers a serious analysis of clients' wants and needs, and describes the house's function within and impact upon people's lives, concerns and aspirations.Stewart shows how the use of the house comprised much more than how life was lived in it on a day-to-day basis, or even how it served special occasions, and included how it functioned in the context of family relations, financial, legal and property transactions, and the market, as well as in the construction of personal identity. At the same time as exploring private perceptions and expectations, Stewart reveals the negative press attention the town house received in its own time. The house unsettled many eighteenth-century observers, and Stewart analyses an unprecedented range of evidence, to demonstrate how the house was associated with notions of transience, changeability, imperfection, luxury, and selfishness, which resulted in its characterization as inconsequential, inconstant, insubstantial, intemperate and ultimately emasculate.By stepping away from conventional tales of economics, materials, or style, and into the previously unexplored world of the houseowner, the book offers an entirely original reading of a familiar building.

Описание: 2014 marks three hundred years since the arrival of the Hanoverians to the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. The Georgian Revolution examines the period from their succession in 1714, through the reigns of George I (1714–27) and George II (1727–60) to 1760. During these years Britain was arguably the most advanced country in Europe, undergoing one of the most dramatic periods in history; a revolution affecting almost every facet of its political, intellectual and cultural life. This comprehensive catalogue considers the artistic patronage of the first Hanoverian monarchs, as well as the works acquired by Queen Caroline and Frederick, Prince of Wales, many of which have never been seen publicly or catalogued fully before. It includes works produced in Britain, France and Germany during their reigns and explores all aspects of life and art during this ‘revolutionary’ period.

The author introduces his subject with an overview of the craft of clock making as it was practised in the early 1700s.

He also discusses movements, lacquer cases, enamel and painted dials, and the export trade. The book concludes with a chapter on the practice and pitfalls of restoration and collecting. Notable bracket clockmakers and their contributions are discussed. The book is aimed at dealers, collectors, librarians and students of horology.
