Описание: Manet to Modigliani showcases fifty masterworks of late 19th- to mid-20th-century avant-garde European art from the Henry and Rose Pearlman Collection, one of the most distinguished private collections of modern art in the United States. Among the iconic images represented are Paul Cezanne's Mont Sainte-Victoire (ca. 1902), Vincent van Gogh's Tarascon Stagecoach (1888), and Amedeo Modigliani's portrait of Jean Cocteau (1916-17), as well as an outstanding suite of sixteen watercolours by Cezanne. The volume opens with Henry Pearlman's "Reminiscences of a Collector", a fascinating first-person narrative, newly annotated to identify key individuals and dates mentioned in the text. An essay by art historian Rachael DeLue places Pearlman in the context of mid-20th-century American collecting, and a detailed chronology illuminates Pearlman's collecting practices in relation to noteworthy events in the art world. A series of fifteen brief essays by leading scholars focuses on each of the represented artists and their works, richly illustrated with sumptuous colour plates, select details, and numerous comparative images.
Описание: Liberty's Furniture 1875 -1915 provides the clearest and most comprehensive account of early Liberty furniture to date. A definitive work of reference, the volume outlines the company's unique contribution to the British Arts and Crafts style.Throughout the history of the Arts and Crafts Movement, Liberty & Co. always enjoyed a prominent position. With imaginative design, high-quality construction, and state-of-the-art marketing, the company was responsible for some of the most beautiful and enduring pieces of furniture from that period.
Drawing on archive material and reviews in contemporary journals and magazines, Liberty's Furniture 1875-1915 examines the key features and different styles of Liberty's furniture design, as it evolved through a variety of genres including Oriental, Arts and Crafts and 'modern country cottage'. Illustrations from the Liberty catalogues enable readers to see how both the products and promotional styles of the company developed, whilst the many colour photographs show a wide selection of items - from the Athelstan suite and Culloden sideboard to the Thebes stools and Witlaf chairs. Giving particular attention to the work of Leonard Wyburd, the man responsible for some of the most important elements of the Liberty style, this volume represents an invaluable evidence base for collectors and auction houses alike.
Contents: The Long Tradition: A Taste for the Exotic; The House Beautiful; Liberty: The Enchanted Cave; Furniture: 1883 - 1893; The Growth of an Influence; The End of an Era; The Later Years; Collecting Liberty Furniture; Brief Chronology; Liberty & Co.

Описание: The crisis of modern architecture is part of a much larger crisis involving the whole question of the way we live and how we use the resources of our planet. Poor design, monotony, and inhuman scale are the results not of lack of talent nor the failures of the Modern Movement, but of a surrender to selfish interests and short-sighted economies. Richard Rogers, perhaps the most original and inventive architect at work today, is a frequent commentator on the contemporary scene. In this book, available again after some years out of print, it is especially valuable to have his philosophy of design so succinctly summarized. As a practising architect, he is in the best possible position to appreciate how economic forces can create or frustrate good design. His book is illustrated largely by examples drawn from his own work, making it a professional record as well as a manifesto for the future.

Описание: Modernism crashed into the American consciousness right after the Second World War, although it had existed in the minds and works of American and German-born architects for almost 40 years prior. While it offered a new design paradigm that would transform the urban landscape from New York to New Delhi, modernism was a slow burn for residential architects. The sharp edges and simple geometries were a hard sell for the American design psyche. A group of innovative architects in the USA took Bauhaus modernism and gave it a vernacular face. They borrowed forms from the simple utilitarian buildings found in rural environments and created a new strain of modernism. Russell Abraham dubs this style 'rural modernism' - a modern aesthetic with a vernacular palette. The result of several ingenious ideas blended together to create a contemporary, sustainable and highly liveable architecture, these houses respect the past while looking forward to the future. Orienting windows to capture heat in winter and provide sun protection in summer is standard, while other sustainable design features include solar-thermal systems, subterranean heat sinks, geothermal trenches and rainwater collection systems -all of which are incorporated to make the most of the natural resources available in rural settings.

Описание: In June 2013, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presents the largest exhibition ever produced on Le Corbusiers prolific oeuvre, encompassing his work as architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer and photographer. Over a six-decade career, this towering figure of modern culture constantly observed and imagined landscapes using all the artistic techniques at his command, including watercolours, sketches, paintings, photographs and models. This accompanying publication, appearing 25 years after the Centre Pompidou released the seminal catalogue Le Corbusier, une encyclopedie , aspires to become a new sourcebook, giving an account of research developed worldwide in recent decades. Reflecting the geographic extension of his designs and built works as well as his indefatigable wanderlust, the book is structured as an atlas, with topographical entries allowing for the discovery of the major sites and cities where Le Corbusier worked. Featuring essays by an international range of curators, scholars and critics, and a trove of archival images and materials from the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris, this lavishly illustrated volume presents a wholly unique way to explore the life and work of one of the most important visionaries of our time.

Описание: In New Farmhouse Style talented designer Terry John Woods and photographer Kindra Clineff introduced us to their beautiful world of rustic farmhouse style by displaying Woods' own centuries old farmhouse in Vermont. Now in Farmhouse Modern, Woods takes his design sensibility even further by profiling homes in the northeast that are putting a new spin on vintage farmhouse design. Farmhouse Modern will feature profiles of homes decorated and styled by Woods along with text on reinventing your home through creative placement of objects and gathering collections both antique and modern. As Woods says, "The elements of modern design may best be appreciated when combined with more traditional components. Sleek lined furnishings paired with a farmhouse antique create contrast and scale that draws focus to the unique qualities each piece has to offer." Woods will also provide advice on shopping at flea markets, yard sales and estate sales which is where he finds most of the furniture in his homes. Over 200 gorgeous photographs by Kindra Clineff will reveal the farmhouses in the same lush and warm style fans of New Farmhouse Style and Summer House have come to love.

Описание: Eugene Delacroix (1789-1863), a dominant figure in 19th-century French art, was a complex and contradictory painter whose legacy is deep and enduring. This important, beautifully illustrated book considers Delacroix in his own time, alongside contemporaries such as Courbet, Fromentin, and the poet Charles Baudelaire, as well as his significant influence on successive generations of artists. Delacroix's paintings and his posthumously published Journals laid crucial groundwork for immediate successors including Cezanne, Degas, Manet, Monet, and Renoir. Later admirers including Seurat, Gauguin, Moreau, Redon, Van Gogh, and Matisse renewed the obsession with his work. Through essays and catalogue entries, the authors demonstrate how Delacroix became mentor and archetype to younger generations who sought direction for their own creative experiments, and found inspiration in Delacroix's brilliant use of color, audacious technique, and rebellious nature.
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."
