Included is Titian's Reclining Venus with Cupid and a Musician, probably painted by the artist for Charles V, and several works by Rubens, who painted a considerable number of works for the Spanish court.

Описание: This book gives a survey of Catholic North Netherlandish history painting during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, against the background of richly
variegated Counter Reformation culture which flourished in the Protestant ruled country. While the civilian government of the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands had chosen
Calvinism and forbidden the celebration of Mass, a not inconsiderable part of the Dutch population remained Catholic. Along with their spiritual leaders, the believers set up a network of
clandestine churches hidden behind the walls of houses and industrial buildings.Above the alters and along the walls of these hidden churches, ambitious, monumental paintings
depicting biblical themes, devout tales or Catholic beliefs appeared.
They were mostly created by prominent artists who also supported the Catholic faith themselves, like
Abraham Bloemaert from Utrecht or Pieter de Grebber, Salomon de Bray and his son Jan from Haarlem, Jacob de Wit from Amsterdam and Jan Cossiers, Cornelis Schut and Eramus
Quellinus from Antwerp. The devotional, religious and political preferences of their other clients are also looked at in detail.

Описание: Throughout history jewellery has expressed a multitude of meanings - social position, marital status, self-esteem. Richly elaborate or elegantly simple, Native
American beadwork, Turkoman silver, Burmese jade and other examples of ethnic jewellery are avidly sought by collectors. This book reveals the full splendours and the subtle
meanings behind the finely crafted works of art in one of the world's finest private collections of ethnic jewellery - that of Colette and Jean-Pierre Ghysels, which has until now remained
carefully protected in Brussels, never exhibited extensively, and accessible only to selected scholars.
Published here, the Ghysels Collection comes to light in photographs
taken especially for this book by John Bigelow Taylor. Amongst the 400 colour reproductions are pieces from every corner of the globe: objects of gold and silver, precious and
semi-precious gems, animal fur, bones, teeth and feathers. The range of sizes, forms and craft techniques is equally impressive.
Colette Ghysels herself provides detailed
captions for all the illustrations, identifying materials and craft methods, giving tribal names and uses of particular objects, and offering an appreciation of the value, rarity, significance
and innate beauty of each piece.

Описание: This handsome book explores in depth a group of stunning painted and gilded furniture designed by the architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe (1764-1820), best known for originating the plans for the United States Capitol. The furniture was made in Philadelphia for one of the city's finest houses--the home of William and Mary Wilcocks Waln, which Latrobe also designed. Drawing on a multiyear conservation and research project, Classical Splendor reveals new insights into the patrons, makers, and history behind these extraordinary pieces. In addition to extensively documenting each item, the book attests to Latrobe's significant contributions to American furniture design--his pieces for the Waln house introduced, and served as exemplars of, a classical style rooted in ancient Greek and Roman design.
