Описание: In this beautiful monograph, a collection of revelatory essays focuses on five common images in Rene Magritte’s work—fire, shadows, curtains, words, and the fragmented body. Featuring vibrant reproductions of more than 100 works, this book helps readers understand how the artist employed these images in ways both deceptive and realistic. The book explores how he distorted accepted interpretations of classic symbols; why he so often used words as elements of his paintings; and how he applied aspects of the theater in his works. As Magritte’s paintings have become subsumed by the very commercialism they sought to ridicule, this volume takes a fresh look at an artist whose familiarity masks an incredible gift for deception and rapier-like intellect.

Magritte`s paintings are witty and easy to view, but can be unnerving. Are we seeing what we are supposed to be seeing?

Описание: The ongoing relevance of Belgian painter Rene Magritte may lie in the semiotic character of his work and its ability to create chasms between the world, its surfaces and the signs we use to occupy it. Magritte’s paintings offer a space for the viewer to contemplate the emptiness of signs and to locate that emptiness in a world we recognize – indeed, the artist relies on the props of normalcy in order to upend, invert and collapse them into the terra incognita where life leaves off and art begins. ‘The mind loves the unknown,’ he avowed, ‘it loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.’ In Attempting the Impossible we have a new definitive Magritte monograph. Featuring more than 300 works, it contains much unpublished material and includes chapters covering Magritte’s photography, drawings and influence on German and American contemporary art. Each chapter opens with a close reading of a key work – such as ‘The Treachery of Images’ (‘This is not a pipe’) of 1928–29 – and a reconstruction of its intellectual and historical contexts. Art historian Siegfried Gohr examines Magritte’s marriage and friendships, the phases of his work (from his sunlit Renoir period and his periode vache to his bright and visually arresting postwar work, which had such an influence on the advertising industry), the Belgian roots of his wit and sensibility and his word paintings and investigations into the paradoxes of representation.
Описание: Published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in collaboration with the Menil Collection, Houston, and the Art Institute of Chicago, Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 19261938 focuses on the breakthrough surrealist years of Rene Magritte, creator of some of the 20th centurys most extraordinary images. Bringing together nearly 80 paintings, periodicals and early commercial work, it offers fresh insight into Magrittes identity as a revolutionary painter and surrealist artist. Beginning in 1926, when Magritte first aimed to create paintings that would, in his words, challenge the real world, and concluding in 1938 a historically and biographically significant moment just before the outbreak of World War II the publication traces central strategies and themes from this seminal period, particularly those of diplacement, transformation, metamorphosis, the misnaming of objects, and the representation of visions seen in half-waking states. The publication also presents new conservation research on Magrittes materials and techniques, and an illustrated chronology outlining significant moments in the artists life during this significant period, including travel, connections with other surrealist artists and writers, contributions to journals, and important exhibitions and reviews.
Great collector cars are still out there--just waiting to be found
Sadly, there is very little reality in reality TV. That wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that these shows are the only TV shows for the barn-find collector car aficionado.
Barn Find Road Trip is the antidote to all the manufactured collector "reality" shows. It's a real-world, barn-find banzai run in which auto archaeologist Tom Cotter, his car collector pal Brian Barr, and photographer Michael Alan Ross embarked on a 14-day collector-car-seeking adventure with no predetermined destinations. It's barn-find freestyle Roaming the Southeast, they documented their day-to-day car search in photos and through stories and interviews. This trip is absolutely real and the same kind of junket any gearhead with the skills, knowledge, and time can undertake.
Cotter and company hit the road in Cotter's 1939 Ford Woody, the kind of car that opened doors and started the conversations that revealed where interesting cars were squirreled away. The result? The discovery of over 1,000 collector cars and some of the most amazing barn-find stories Cotter has yet unearthed, all accompanied by Ross' evocative photography. If you love stories of automotive adventure, this is the book for you
