Описание: There was a time-as recently as the 1980s-when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our visual landscape.
Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. In 2010 filmmakers Faythe Levine, coauthor of Handmade Nation , and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. Sign Painters , the first anecdotal history of the craft, features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States.
Описание: Presents the complex ways in which the lives of artists, and sitters were interconnected in the early American South. This title draws upon materials including diaries, and newspapers in order to explore the stylistic trends of the period and the lives of the sitters, as gentility spread from the wealthiest southerners to the middle class.
Описание: With the rise of museums in the 19th century, including the formation in 1824 of the National Gallery in London, as well as the proliferation of widely available published reproductions, the art of the past became visible and accessible in Victorian England as never before. Inspired by the work of Sandro Botticelli, Jan van Eyck, Diego Velazquez, and others, British artists elevated contemporary art to new heights through a creative process that emphasized imitation and emulation. Elizabeth Prettejohn analyzes the ways in which the Old Masters were interpreted by critics, curators, and scholars, and argues that Victorian artists were, paradoxically, at their most original when they imitated the Old Masters most faithfully. Covering the arc of Victorian art from the Pre-Raphaelites through to the early modernists, this volume traces the ways in which artists such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, and William Orpen engaged with the art of the past and produced some of the greatest art of the later 19th century.

Описание: This is a unique introduction to a fascinating group of early marine painters working in England between about 1660 and 1730, of whom relatively little is known. Marine painting really began in England with the arrival of the van de Veldes (father and son) from Holland in 1673. They established a studio of British marine painting which was such a success that additional assistants were taken on. The van de Veldes so dominated the world of marine painting that work by other attractive and competent marine artists working in England at the time received little attention. This relatively unknown group, which is the real subject of this important book, included Isaac Sailmaker, Jacob Knyff, J.K.D. van Beecq, Adrian van Diest, L. Castro, L.D. Man, H. Vale and R. Vale. The author has spent many years searching for pictures and scraps of information about these painters, the outcome being their emergence as personalities in their own right. Pictures by these painters have been appearing in British sale rooms more frequently and their work is increasingly sought after by collectors. The book's illustration is included to demonstrate a particular painter's range as well as the characteristics of his technique. Important, major pictures are obviously better known while the smaller, more run-of-the-mill works, often no less charming, have, hitherto, not received as much attention. These smaller, often more typical efforts are illustrated alongside the major ones thereby enabling the reader to make useful and, for the first time, direct comparisons between the painter's own work and that of his contemporaries.

Описание: Eight French painters born after 1870 are brought together for the first time in
an exhibition that highlights their mutual affinities and charts their respective
influences and evolutions.
Aside from Gaston Balande (1880-1971), who is well known for his art deco wall
murals designed for transatlantic ships, and Paul Deltombe (1878-1971), who
benefited from a retrospective exhibition in 1970, the work of the other painters
collected here has remained uncelebrated for far too long. The present exhibition
and its catalogue aim to repair this oversight, as well as to reignite the study of this
generation of French painters who, without turning their back on the avant-gardists,
concentrated primarily on the traditional genre of landscape, and to a lesser degree
The 80 works of art, mainly painted between the wars, are at the crossroads of the
many influences of this creative period, where tradition and the avant-garde blended
together without restraint.
This syncretism is frequently illustrated by landscapes where the diversity reflects
the search for new effects and beautiful themes as well as an appetite for travel and
discoveries. This panorama of Douce France signals the last breath for this pictorial
style that was the inheritor and continuation of the Impressionist movement –a status that was bound to be lost forever after the Second World War.
Описание: The first edition of "The Dictionary of Victorian Painters" was published in 1971 and contained details of 1,800 artists together with 250 illustrations. It became an accepted text book on Victorian artists and was reprinted four times until a second, revised and enlarged edition with 11,000 entries and 550 illustrations appeared in 1978. "The Dictionary" is now revised in two volumes, each complementary to one another yet entirely independent works, depending on the particular interest of the reader. Thislume contains a scholarly introduction of some 70 pages in which the author discusses the development and importance of Victorian painters and their work setting it within the context of the time. This prepares the reader for the visual examples which follow, 750 black and white and 40 colour plates. The examples which are included show the tremendous output and range of paintings of the time and provide the reader with a visual account of this period in British art. Illustrations, for the most part arranged alphabetically by artist, are a representative selection and provide a picture of the full range of Victorian art. As a visual reference this title should prove useful and will occupy a place in most libraries, art galleries, museums and anywhere that people wish to check details or learn more about one of the most productive periods in British art.
