Описание: This collection of Chinese landscape paintings profiles the work of prolific artist, Li Huayi--one of the most influential Chinese painters of the 20th century. Some view contemporary art and traditional art as alien entities facing each other across an unbridgeable divide. But what does it mean to be a "contemporary artist"? Is it possible to be contemporary while working in a traditional manner? These questions as they relate to the contemporary scene in China are explored in this catalogue of a special exhibition featuring 34 large-scale paintings by Li Huayi, an artist born and raised in China, and currently residing in Shanghai and San Francisco. Many of the works in this exhibition could, on first view, be mistaken for traditional Chinese paintings such as those from the Northern Song dynasty (960-1126). On closer inspection, however, the viewer discovers the technical innovations and personal expression that the artist has brought to this tradition. For Li Huayi is expressly not an artist who is seeking to imitate or reproduce works from the past but rather one who uses tradition to create new works that speak to our time.
Описание: Features nearly fifty examples of mural-size prints and explores these multi-block woodcut and multi-plate engraving ensembles as contributions to the visual culture of their time. This book documents the relationship of monumental prints to the history of prints in general and also to mapmaking, painting, and book illustration.

Описание: Here is an illustrated view of Jersey City, New Jersey, presented with the view that history is not some group of facts hidden in dusty tomes, but is happening all the time around us. The history and development of eight distinct sections are described: the waterfronts (North and Central), Downtown, Communipaw-Lafayette, Bergen, Journal Square, The Heights, and Greenville, from the 1600s to the present. With the help of more than 340 color and black and white photographs and other media, a fascinating vision of people, places, and change is presented; a vision that looks forward as well as back. A well-researched volume that will pique an interest in this "Monumental" city.

From bustling Piazza San Marco, to watery churches and abbeys like San Giorgio and Il Redentore, to tranquil, isolated squares and the marble palazzos lining the Grand Canal, the City of the Doges is a natural muse for panoramic photographer Jacques Boulay. This limited-edition book with huge single and double gatefolds and an accompanying signed print, reveals Venice to be far more than a collection of historic buildings, 16th-century fish markets, canals, and public squares. Stories abound in secret gardens and quiet waterways; the gravity of the ancient Palazzo Pisani-Moretta is set against the 1920s Hispano-Moorish delirium of the Lido; picturesque covered passages, cul-de-sacs, and brightly hued houses invite the reader to sink into mysterious vistas of one of the most verdant and seductive cities in the world.
