Описание: This book features a natural selection: Fords beautifully savage beasts and birds. Walton Fords watercolors of animals could be mistaken for 19th century natural science illustrations or British colonial paintings. Except theyre not. Something strange and usually sinister is happening in each of Fords works, whether its a wild turkey crushing a small parrot with its claw, a collection of monkeys wreaking havoc on a formally set dinner table, or an American buffalo surrounded by a pack of bloodied white wolves...in the middle of a proper French garden. Painted with the deft technique of a technical artist, Fords works vibrate with an intensity of uncanny familiarity; they are both reassuring in style and disturbing in content. With titles like Au Revoir Zaire, Necropolis, and Dirty Dick Burtons Aide de Camp, and Space Monkey, his paintings open the doors to a world of real-life fantasy, dreams, and nightmares - all with a stunning candor that almost belies the artists intentions. Collected together for the first time as a limited-edition book, and now available as a popular edition, Fords bestiary takes its name from one of the texts he frequently refers back to in his work: The Pancha Tantra, the ancient Indian book of animal fables collected from 3rd-5th Centuries B.C. and considered to be the precursor to Aesops Fables. This book provides an in-depth exploration of Walton Fords oeuvre. It also includes a complete professional biography as well as substantial excerpts from the textual sources for the paintings, from Vietnamese folktales and the letters of Benjamin Franklin to the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini and John James Audubons Ornithological Biography.

Описание: Fantastic menagerie: The sinister majesty of Walton Ford's wildlife At first glance, Walton Ford's large-scale, highly-detailed watercolors of animals may recall the prints of 19th century illustrators John James Audubon and Edward Lear, and others of the colonial era. But a closer look reveals a complex and disturbingly anthropomorphic universe, full of symbols, sly jokes, and allusions to the 'operatic' nature of traditional natural history themes. The beasts and birds populating this contemporary artist's life-size paintings are never mere objects, but dynamic actors in allegorical struggles a wild turkey crushes a small parrot in its claw; a troupe of monkeys wreak havoc on a formal dinner table, an American buffalo is surrounded by bloodied white wolves. The book's title derives from The Pancha Tantra, an ancient Indian book of animal tales considered the precursor to Aesop's Fables. This updated edition--featuring the artist's most recent works--includes an in-depth exploration of Walton Ford's oeuvre, a complete biography, and excerpts from his textual inspirations: Vietnamese folktales and the letters of Benjamin Franklin, the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini and Audubon's Ornithological Biography. Text in English, French, and German
