Описание: Contemporary developments in the visual arts are often reflected in urban landscapes. Imagine Architecture explores the ways in which visual culture develops in public spaces and how it shapes those spaces. This book focuses on the fruitful exchange between visual culture and architecture and follows up on the themes introduced in our previous release Beyond Architecture. It compiles experimental projects and creative perspectives from the fields of illustration, painting, collage, sculpture, photography, installation, and design. A young generation of creatives sees the urban landscape as the starting point for their work. When these illustrators, sculptors, or photographers engage with architecture, their art overrules conventional doctrines on the use of space. They use buildings as a medium for their ideas, breaking norms and triggering new tensions. Whether they make sculptures that are created within the context of a given structure or street art whose forms and colors impact its surrounding architecture, all of the featured projects interpret and reflect their spatial settings in compelling ways. In the process, these visionary concepts are playfully expanding the definition of architecture. Their creativity has the potential to breathe new life into public spaces and promote the evolution of our cities. Imagine Architecture showcases spirited artwork that experiments with architecture and pushes its boundaries. As a contemporary survey of visual culture, the book is not only a must-read for architects, but also for anyone who sees architecture as a source of inspiration and an opportunity to project their creativity.
Описание: Faberge, Tiffany, Lalique - these great designers came together only once to display their goods in what was probably the opulent exhibition ever mounted. This title discusses the works in the context of their times, illuminate the high societies served by the three masters, and trace the cultural trends behind their extraordinary creations.
Описание: Pliny's "Natural History" (A.D. 77-79) served as an indispensable guide to and exemplar of the ideals of art for Renaissance artists, patrons, and theorists. Bearing the imprimatur of antiquity, the "Natural History" gave permission to do art on a grand scale, to value it, and to see it as an incomparable source of prestige and pleasure. In "Pliny and the Artistic Culture of the Italian Renaissance", Sarah Blake McHam surveys Pliny's influence, from Petrarch, the first figure to recognize Pliny's relevance to understanding the history of Greek art and its reception by the Romans, to Vasari and late 16th-century theorists. McHam charts the historiography of Latin and Italian manuscripts and early printed copies of the "Natural History" to trace the dissemination of its contents to artists from Donatello and Ghiberti to Michelangelo and Titian. Meanwhile, benefactors commissioned works intended to emulate the prototypes Pliny described, aligning themselves with the great patrons of antiquity. This is a richly illustrated, comprehensive reference work of social history, myth making, iconography, theory, and criticism.

Описание: Charles Rohlfs (1853--1936) ranked among the most innovative furniture makers at the turn of the twentieth century. Praised by the international press and exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, his beautiful works grew out of an interesting mix of styles that included Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and proto-modernism. This book presents the first major study of this important American designer and craftsman, drawing upon new photographs and fresh sources of information. Alongside traditional historical approaches, the book presents detailed formal, structural, and stylistic analyses of Rohlfs's well-known masterpieces from major museums, together with lesser-known objects in public and private collections. Topics include discovering the contribution of Rohlfs's wife--mystery novelist Anna Katharine Green--to his designs; the far-ranging sources of his idiosyncratic motifs; his influence on Gustav Stickley's designs; his commissioned interiors; his efforts at self-promotion and marketing; and his attempts to define a conceptual framework for his artistic endeavor. Handsomely designed and illustrated, the book also features a complete set of unpublished period illustrations of over seventy works.

Описание: Terry Foltz turns one of the favorite tools of woodworkers, the scrollsaw, into a means of artistic expression. And now he shares his techniques with readers everywhere. Everything from making the pattern to the selection of wood and finely detailed scrollsaw cuts is explained in depth and illustrated with clear color photographs. The main project in this book is a fishing scene with an angler landing "the big one," in a mountain stream surrounded by tall pine trees. What makes the scene extraordinary is not only the complex design, but the fine detail Terry obtains in the linework and silhouette. To take the mystery out of it, he leads readers through the process step-by-step, so that with a little practice they can produce wonderful works of scrollsaw art. Additional patterns and a gallery of Terrys other work are provided , which gives a wealth of ideas while exploring the possibilities for scrollsaw creations.

Описание: In this innovative volume, literary critics and art historians explore the relationship between literature and the visual arts in 19th-century France. Eighteen
leading scholars, including Pierre Bourdieu, Germaine Greer, Segolene Le Men, Roger Cardinal and Mary Ann Caws analyse contemporary forms of representation to reveal the rich
variety of factors that link image and text. 19th-century France offers a particularly fertile range of connections between verbal and visual practice.
From imaginative writers
engaging in art-criticism to transpositions d'art between paintings and texts there is a diversity of intersection which goes well beyond mere affinity or analogy. The volume also clearly
acknowledges the importance of setting the relationship betw
en writers and painters against the social fabric of the period: from the economic and institutional structures of artistic production in which they worked, to the wider pictorial culture -
including photography and printing - of the century. The book owes its origins to the rapid growth of interest in the inter-disciplinary field of cultural studies, and seeks to provide an
authoritative but accessible text for students and teachers.
It is organised into thematic sub-sections within which different kinds of problem are examined and challenging
methodological examples presented. While contributions have been specially commissioned to provide an overview of the field, the stimulating individual views of their authors make
them comprehensible and attractive to non-specialists. The book will take its place as the first major work of synthesis on 19th-century French literature and art.

Описание: Soon after the Portuguese opened the first direct sea route from Europe to Asia, they established trading centers in India and Sri Lanka. By the early 1500s, Europe had become avid consumers of luxury goods imported from South Asia. This book shows how the trade in exotica spurred the development of a hybrid art, at once Indian and Portuguese.
