Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: Serge Diaghilev (1872 - 1929) was an extraordinarily gifted impresario, curator, director and animator of the arts. He was perfectly at home driving the wave of creative energy that pushed theatrical performance to the cutting edge of cultural activity in the early twentieth century. A roll call of the Ballets Russes' collaborators and circle bears witness to their impact on modernism and later twentieth-century art; Picasso, Stravinsky, Nijinsky, Bakst, Goncharova, Matisse, Chanel, Prokofiev, Man Ray and Cocteau all worked with Diaghilev - and their work is discussed and illustrated here.
This beautiful book draws on new research to explore Diaghilev's life, work and cultural milieu. It pulls together the music, pictures, costumes, archives and art of the Ballets Russes to illustrate Diaghilev's working process, accomplishments and society.

Описание: Collage is as topical as ever. The Age of Collage Vol. 2 is a striking collection of work that ranges from subversive to museum-worthy. While some examples make explicit statements, others are gloriously Dada. Bringing disparate images and items together, collage transcends the boundaries between artistic disciplines. The traditionally analog technique has its roots in surrealism and Dada. Having effortlessly evolved to embrace digital tools and the combinatory freedom that they offer, collage is now making a promising comeback. The Age of Collage Vol.2 presents the work of more than 80 collage artists -- from established names including John Baldessari and Richard Prince to up-andcoming talents such as Lola Dupre. A follow- up to The Age of Collage, the book is a comprehensive showcase of the surprising diversity of this genre today."
Описание: The technique of collage fits perfectly into our current age. Raw visual material is collected by an artist and then combined in such a way as to abstract the individual elements enough that the artist's own vision becomes prominent. Because collage s references range from other artistic works and techniques to scientific images, pop culture, and erotica, these raw materials reflect humanity's collective visual memory and context. It's collage's broad scope and irreverence that make this technique so interesting for both artist and audience. So it comes as no surprise that a lively scene has developed around contemporary collage in the last few years. Our book Cutting Edges was the first to document work by this scene, which has continued to expand the possibilities of the genre. Beyond the lowbrow movement, which brings a fresh perspective to figurative surrealism, more and more established artists are now embracing this medium. Their work bridges the historical gap between the classic pioneers of the technique from the 1920s and today's vanguard of contemporary collage. Showcasing outstanding current artwork and artists, The Age of Collage is a striking documentation of this new appetite for destructive construction. The book also takes an insightful behind-the-scenes look at those working with this interdisciplinary and cross-media approach. While illustration, painting, and photography continue to fundamentally influence collage, the featured work also plays with elements of abstraction, constructivism, surrealism, and dada. Collage gives artists more room to stake out diverse artistic positions than almost any other existing technique. Through confident cuts, brushstrokes, mouse clicks, or pasting, collage gives the impossible a tangible form while turning our worldview on its head along the way. In their visual confrontation with reality in our digital age, which has already made geographic, temporal, and artistic boundaries obsolete, these artists celebrate and exaggerate simultaneousness.
Описание: As the Walt Disney Studio entered its first decade and embarked on some of the most ambitious animated films of the time, Disney hired a group of "concept artists" whose sole mission was to explore ideas and inspire their fellow animators. They Drew as They Pleased showcases four of these early pioneers and features artwork developed by them for the Disney shorts from the 1930s, including many unproduced projects, as well as for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, and some early work for later features such as Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Introducing new biographical material about the artists and including largely unpublished artwork from the depths of the Walt Disney Archives and the Disney Animation Research Library, this volume offers a window into the most inspiring work created by the best Disney artists during the studio's early golden age. They Drew as They Pleased is the first in what promises to be a revealing and fascinating series of books about Disney's largely unexamined concept artists, with six volumes spanning the decades between the 1930s and 1990s.

Автор: Meisel Louis K Название: Photorealism in the Digital Age ISBN: 1419708287 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781419708282 Издательство: Abrams Рейтинг: Цена: 6207 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ.
Описание: Here is the fourth and final volume in Abrams' definitive series on Photorealism, one of the most popular contemporary art movements. The first three volumes reproduced all Photorealist paintings created before 2000. Photorealism In The Digital Age includes 841 full-colour artworks produced since 2000. The Photorealists work painstakingly from photographs to create startlingly real paintings, sometimes as few as four in any given year. Where once they used cameras and film as tools for gathering information, they now rely on digital technology, which has vastly expanded the amount of detail that can be captured in an image. They bring new insights to vernacular subjects--cars and trucks, cityscapes, pop images such as gumball and pinball machines and portraits--and succeed in making the commonplace "uncommon." Meisel covers every major Photorealist still active (including Ralph Goings, Richard Estes, Charles Bell, John Salt and John Baeder) as well as artists new to the movement, like Raphaella Spence and Yigal Ozeri. For the first time he also includes Photorealist-like sculpture, including the famed bronze and wax figures of John DeAndrea and Duane Hanson.
