Описание: Karl Blossfeldt (1865–1932) was a great pioneer of botanical photography, yet he was neither a professional photographer nor a botanist. A professor at the Academy of Applied Arts in Berlin, he was a sculptor and amateur photographer, and his interest in the plant world was originally educational. Fascinated by the structure of plants, whose apparently artistic forms were created by biological expediency, he realized that photography could be a useful teaching tool, allowing his students to see and compare many natural forms. Blossfeldt worked with a homemade camera and gathered and photographed his own plant samples, magnifying them by up to 45 times. From around 1898 onwards, he shot some 6,000 images, which he used primarily as visual aids in his classes. Eventually published as Art Forms in Nature (1928) and Art Forms in Nature, Second Series (1932), his photographs had a lasting impact on the art of his day and were enthusiastically embraced by both the Surrealists and the New Objectivity movement. His books brought him overnight fame and are still considered landmarks in the history of art and photography. This volume brings together a remarkable collection of Blossfeldt’s strikingly austere yet poetic portraits of plants, capturing their timeless beauty in intimate detail.

Curtis’s magnum opus, "The North American Indian", the most extensive photographic portrait of Native Americans, is a crucial contribution to the history of America’s Native peoples as well as a testament to his tireless efforts to document and express the spirit of over eighty distinct tribal groups. In this book Cardozo selected from an unmatched private archive of rare and unique Curtis original, vintage photographs. Never before have Curtis’s finest photographs been presented with such fidelity and power in book form. Every style, subject matter, cultural and geographic area, and print medium Curtis worked in is included. The stunning photographs are further enriched and contextualized by essays from world-recognized experts.

Описание: One of the world's top hundred art collectors, Alfred C. Glassell, Jr. (1913-2008), was fascinated by gold, but not for its monetary value. Glassell valued instead the spiritual significance that gold held in many ancient cultures, particularly those of Africa, South America, and Indonesia. Over the years, he acquired an astonishing number of artworks, assembling the largest privately held collection of Pre-Columbian gold. From 1997 to 2004, Glassell donated works of African and Indonesian gold to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Upon his death in 2008, he bequeathed his collection of Pre-Columbian gold to the museum. Masterworks of Pre-Columbian, Indonesian, and African Gold explores two hundred of these dazzling works, many published here for the first time. Spanning from 2000 B.C. to A.D. 1600, these precious objects reflect a variety of cultures, such as the Calima, Quimbaya, Sic n, Moch , and Cocl , and a range of geographic locations, from Mexico to Argentina and from Africa to Indonesia. The book offers fresh insights into the enduring appeal of gold and its artistic manifestations in diverse cultures.

Описание: J.M.W. Turner was arguably the greatest landscape and marine painter ever. His output was prodigious: some five hundred and fifty oil paintings, over two
thousand highly detailed and finely finished watercolours, and almost twenty thousand sketches, studies and rough watercolours.
He excelled in every branch of landscape
and marine painting, from elaborate history pictures and idealised scenes in the classical tradition, to tiny, jewel-like watercolours of contemporary life on land and sea made for
subsequent engraved reproduction. This book takes us on a grand tour of the artist's works.

Описание: The 20th century was remarkably fertile ground for residential architecture in the US, producing such icons of modern building as the Greene brothers' Gamble House in Pasadena (1908), Eliel Saarinen's 1929 residence at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and Michael Graves' neo-classical villa in New Jersey. These are among the 21 masterpieces of American 20th-century residential architecture presented in this illustrated volume, a condensed edition of this previously published title. Colour photographs are accompanied by a text that explores each house in depth and discusses its place in the progression of American architecture, its role in the architect's oeuvre and its broader relationship to the history of 20th-century American cultural movements.

Описание: The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid houses one of the finest private art collections. It was begun in 1920 by the Baron von Thyssen-Bornemisza and continued by his son, the present Baron. The museum was opened in 1992 after being bought by the Spanish state. In March 2004 it will house for the first time the international works of the Baroness von Thyssen-Bornemisza, a remarkable collection of works by the greatest artists from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries. This collection contains fine examples of works hardly present in the Spanish public galleries, such as seventeenth-century Dutch painting and eighteenth-century artists such as Canaletto, Fragonard and Guardi. The heart of the collection is its nineteenth-century art, from Caspar David Friedrich and John Constable to the Impressionists and painters such as Corot and Daubigny. The holdings of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings are perhaps the richest and most striking. Gauguin is particularly well represented and there are fine examples by Degas, van Gogh, Monet, Pissaro, Renoir and Sisley. Also well represented are the avant-gardes from the beginning of this century, especially Fauvism (Braque, Derain, Matisse, etc.) and German Expressionism. An initial selection of the Baroness' collection was presented to the public for the first time at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid in 1996 to critical and public acclaim. Since then different selections have been shown in places as varied as Beijing, Bilbao, Lugano, New York, Rome, Tokyo and Zaragoza, giving people from all over the world the chance to know and enjoy this remarkable collection. This beautifully produced and informative book will bring the collection to an even wider audience.
