Описание: Lucian Freud was one of the world’s greatest realist artists. Working only from life, he once claimed, ‘I could never put anything into a picture that wasn’t there in front of me.’ This revelatory publication features a selection of beautifully reproduced images from his sketchbooks. Most of the sketches – which include works in pencil, pastel and watercolour from across the artist’s long career – are published here for the first time. These fascinating images extend our understanding of Freud’s work and demonstrate the scrutiny he brought to his subjects. The sketchbooks, now in the archive of the National Portrait Gallery, London, include portraits of Freud’s family members, friends and lovers. Designs for book covers, images of his beloved dogs and horses, landscapes and interiors appear among nudes, still lifes and several sketches that relate to major works. Around and between the drawings are Freud’s annotations and jottings – appointments, racing tips, notes, musings – which, with startling immediacy, provide a glimpse into the working life of one of the twentieth century’s most important artists. The book includes an insightful essay by Martin Gayford, who sat for portraits by Freud and knew him well, and an illustrated chronology of the artist’s life.

Описание: Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) was one of the greatest portraitists of his time. The first large-scale book devoted to the topic, this handsome volume features portraits that shed light on Goya and his subjects, as well as on the politically turbulent and culturally dynamic era in which they lived. Whether portraying royalty, philosophers, military men, or friends, these works are memorable both for the insight they provide into the relationship between artist and sitter, and for their penetrating psychological depth. Xavier Bray traces Goya's career from his beginnings at the Madrid court of Charles III to his final years in Bordeaux, played out against the backdrop of war with France and the social, political, and cultural shift of the Enlightenment. More than 60 remarkable portraits, including drawings and miniatures, reveal the full range of Goya's technical and stylistic achievements, while also depicting sitters with a previously unparalleled humanity. His break with traditional, late-18th-century conventions allowed him to achieve a new modernity in portraiture that paved the way for artists such as Matisse and Picasso.

Описание: Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A superb draftsman and colourist, he produced images of startling emotional power. Following the lead of his mentor, Gustav Klimt, Schiele created figurative works of uncanny intimacy and brought a new openness to the art of his time. Schiele's premature death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements. Egon Schiele: Portraits focuses on five groupings of the artist's work: family and academy, fellow artists, sitters and patrons, lovers and allegory. In addition, it features a special section on a traumatic and pivotal period in Schiele's life: his arrest and imprisonment during the summer of 1912. Documenting the artist's changing style, both pre- and post-imprisonment, the book features many key works that have been assembled for this exhibition from both American and European museums and private collections.

Описание: The artist May Ray (1890-1976) initially taught himself photography in order to reproduce his own works of art, but it became one of his preferred mediums. As a contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements in Paris during the 1920s, Man Ray was perfectly placed to make defining images of his avant-garde contemporaries, including Jean Cocteau, Peggy Guggenheim, and Gertrude Stein. Man Ray also photographed his friends and lovers, among them Kiki de Montparnasse (Alice Prin), Lee Miller, who helped him discover the solarization printing process, and Ady Fidelin.
Man Ray continued to take portrait photographs throughout his career, including little-known images from 1940s Hollywood, and of stars such as Ava Gardner and Catherine Deneuve taken during the 1950s and 1960s.
An essential reference on Man Ray's life and work, this book includes an introduction by Terence Pepper and essay by Marina Warner exploring the artist's creativity and appetite for innovation and experimentation. Complete with first-hand testimonies from the artist's sitters and over 200 beautifully reproduced images, this handsome volume provides a survey of the finest portraits from one of the most inventive photographic artists of the 20th century.

Описание: The first book to survey the work of this iconic designer, known for her serene "new American classic" look. One of today's most influential designers, Victoria Hagan exploded onto the scene in 1988 when New York magazine devoted the cover of its design issue to one of her rooms. Since then she has become renowned for her intelligent integration of architectural and interior design, her refined use of materials, her sophisticated color palette, and her strong silhouettes. Always looking to the view, Hagan effortlessly makes a close connection of interior spaces to the surrounding landscape. The houses profiled--ranging from elegant urban residences to casual weekend retreats--reveal Hagan's unerring attention to what Proust called "the unexpected detail," which makes her interiors beautiful as well as timeless. Throughout, Hagan discourses on the spirit of cherished objects--a print of birds in flight, a vintage star-shaped mirror, or a chair with an unusual silhouette--that add soul and modernity. With stunning photography and personal insights into Hagan's design philosophy, Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits is an artful and inspiring collection of this design superstar's oeuvre.

Описание: Introduction by Martin Gayford Appreciation by David Hockney This accessible guide features a selection of portraits by Lucian Freud, regarded by many as one of the world's greatest realist painters. The book includes some of the finest examples of Freud's work from across seven decades. The portraits are complemented by a chronology illustrated with documentary images and some previously unpublished informal photographs, and introductory texts by Martin Gayford and David Hockney. The Lucian Freud: Painting People features a selection of the artist's finest portraits and figure paintings arranged chronologically, from the early 1940s to his death in 2011. In his introductory essay, Martin Gayford looks at Freud's standing as an artist and his place in art history, and offers personal insights into the artist's life and approach to portraiture. World-renowned artist David Hockney gives a revealing account of his own experience of sitting for a portrait by his friend and fellow artist, and an illustrated chronology enables readers to place Freud's works in context. Portraits and paintings of the human form were central to Freud's oeuvre, and with examples drawn from public and private collections around the world, this book demonstrates Freud's stylistic development and technical virtuosity. Working only from life, the artist claimed 'I could never put anything into a picture that wasn't actually there in front of me.' A private man, Freud's close relationship with his sitters was played out behind the closed door of the studio. Among those represented in this book are members of his family - particularly his mother, Lucie - artists, such as Frank Auerbach, John Minton and David Hockney, and the performance artist Leigh Bowery and Bowery's friend Sue Tilley, immortalised by Freud in a series of monumental paintings in the 1990s. This book includes some of the finest examples of Freud's work from across seven decades. The portraits are complemented by a chronology illustrated with documentary images and some previously unpublished informal photographs, and introductory texts by Martin Gayford and David Hockney.

Описание: Surveying Lucian Freud s entire career and including many of his most important paintings, this generously illustrated book also explores his interest in historical art and the influence it had on the artist's work. Known chiefly for his remarkable portrait and figure paintings of psychological depth and unsparing scrutiny, Lucian Freud (1922 2011) was one of the most important and influential artists of his generation. His subjects, many of whom were portrayed repeatedly over many years, included his large family and circle of close friends, working-class associates and blue-blooded aristocrats. Accompanying an exhibition at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, this book presents the highlights of Freud's working life, a period of almost 70 years, and includes many of his most significant and well-known paintings: self-portraits, portraits of his family, friends and fellow artists, commissions, landscapes and still lives. The selection of works was made with the close personal involvement of the artist during the months prior to his death in July 2011 and includes works from museums and private collections throughout the world. This book also delves into Freud's lifelong interest in historical art, in painters and draughtsmen such as Chardin, Durer, Holbein, Rubens, Rembrandt, Titian, Velazquez and Watteau, and in sculptors going back to Egyptian antiquity. In addition to the numerous illustrations, the book includes essays by renowned curators from the Musee du Louvre, Paris, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the Neues Museum, Berlin, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.

Описание: John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) was the leading American portrait painter of his generation. This book showcases his portraits of artists, writers, actors and musicians, many of whom he knew well. These pictures were rarely the result of commissions, and Sargent was free to take a more radical approach to depicting the people he liked and admired than was possible in his formal portraiture.
