Описание: In an age in which houses exhibiting unchecked exuberance, high drama or conspicuous luxury get all the attention, leading interior designer Tom Scheerer has cultivated his own more restrained brand of chic, a look he modestly describes as cheerful and no nonsense. But it is so much more. In New York apartments, Brooklyn brownstones, Bahamian country clubs, and Maine summer houses, Scheerer has created rooms that are crisp, confident, classic and unfailingly correct but also visually enthralling. His sophistication is extreme, but it is accessible, relaxed, and a touch under baked, as Scheerer says, because he thinks the smartest rooms are always a little under-decorated. The magic is in the way Scheerer combines classic, old-fashioned decorating with modernist touches a la Albert Hadley and Billy Baldwin, but with a keener attention to natural materials, unpretentious vernacular crafts, and the prettiest colour combinations this side of India. He cherishes the simplest, least manipulated fabrics cottons, linens, dimities, even candlewicking and loves certain inexpensive accents as much as he does truly fine ones. All this adds up to fresh, relaxed interiors that look like no others. Exquisitely photographed, this is the first book of Scheerers work, and its a must for all lovers of interior design.

Описание: Rudolf Wittkower deplored specialiation. For him, it was the fact that art communicated experience which made it a rewarding study, and nothing fascinated him more than the way in which one culture picked up and transformed the images of another. This volume draws together fourteen essays written over a thirty-three-year period in which he ranges far and wide in search of these "migrating" symbols, trying to penetrate the meaning that artists have given them or that they have unconsciously conveyed.
The esays - each with its original illustrations and notes - fall into two main groups. The first traces instances where oriental imagery has entered the art of the West - specifically the strange images of Eagle and Serpent, and the long catalogue of monsters which the ancient and medieval worlds took so completely for granted and which held meanings for them not always apparent to ourselves. The second looks at the sources of some favourite allegorical motifs of the Renaissance - Chance, Time, Resurrection, Patience, Death, Virtue, "Grammatica" - and shows how they keep their identity throughout revolutions of taste and style.
One essay explores an intriguing byway of art history, the 15th century's claim to have rediscovered hieroglyphics. Another finds a consistency and purpose in El Greco's apparently mechanical repitition of the same gestures in painting after painting. Finally Professor Wittkower faces the basic question of why a picture - whether by Leonardo or a child of three - can mean anything at all.
