Автор: Skewes-Cox Pamela, Sweeney Robert Название: Spanish Colonial Style: Santa Barbara and the Architecture of James Osborne Craig and Mary McLaughlin Craig ISBN: 0847846121 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780847846122 Издательство: Rizzoli USA Рейтинг: Цена: 7187 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: An ode to the classic Spanish-style houses of Santa Barbara. " Spanish Colonial Style" celebrates an extraordinary tradition in architecture whose hallmarks include whitewashed stucco and plaster walls, wood-beamed ceilings, dramatic fireplaces, and, above all, mystery and romance. Homes in this much-loved style of architecture welcome the visitor and embrace the resident, and architects James Osborne Craig and Mary McLaughlin Craig, early proponents of the style and influential disseminators of it, were masters of the form. Their work, until now, has been largely underappreciated and little seen.The Craigs played pivotal roles in the development of the Spanish Colonial Revival and of other styles of architecture in Santa Barbara, and the influence of their work spread much beyond that. In addition to shining a long overdue spotlight on the rich career of these tremendously influential architects, "Spanish Colonial Style" also heralds Santa Barbara as the small city of international importance that it became in the first half of the twentieth century."

Автор: Jones Leslie et al Название: John Baldessari: Pure Beauty ISBN: 3791343459 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783791343457 Издательство: Prestel Publishing Limited Рейтинг: Цена: 9883 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: A major figure in contemporary art, John Baldessari is widely considered one of the most influential artists to emerge since the mid-1960s. From his text-and-image paintings of the 1960s to his more recent photo collages and installations, Baldessari has continued to make art that addresses the social and cultural impact of mass culture, often playfully through strategies of appropriation and deconstruction. Baldessari's lifelong interest in language, written and visual, and the interaction between the two, raises questions about the nature of communication and perception. More than 150 of Baldessari's works are presented in full colour in this monograph published in conjunction with a major exhibition at Tate Modern and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Eleven essays by critics, curators, art historians and former students round off this volume. Few contemporary artists have achieved the range and relevance of Baldessari's oeuvre, which is finally given its due in this beautiful and elegant limited edition, including a fold-out poster designed specially for this hardback volume by John Baldessari.
