Описание: During the years 1627 and 1628, Charles I of England purchased the cream of the Gonzaga art collection, belonging to the dukes of Mantua, in what would become the greatest art deal of the 17th century. Among the treasures sold were ancient statues and stunning paintings by Titian, Raphael, Correggio, and Rubens. This book examines this fascinating and significant art sale from the perspective of the man who orchestrated it-Daniel Nijs (1572-1647), a Flemish merchant, collector, and dealer living in Venice.
Christina M. Anderson brings Nijs to life, asserting that he was more than the avaricious and unscrupulous trader that most modern writers and scholars deem him to be. Anderson's evocative text describes Nijs's unique talent as a dealer, rooted in superior commercial skills, connections to artistic and diplomatic circles, and a deep love of art.
The narrative reveals that Nijs was ultimately the pivotal figure involved with the Gonzaga sale, though also-when he later fell into bankruptcy and dishonor due to a deal gone awry-the most tragic.
Описание: From the first half of the twentieth-century, early British masters of etching such as Walter Sickert and Augustus John are included, while Paul Nash and Eric Gill exemplify the 1920's to 1930's fashion for woodblock-printing. Works from Picasso, Matisse, Vuillard and Chagall sit alongside prints from German artists Paul Klee and Franz Marc. After the Second World War the scale and ambition of lithographs and screen-prints began to rival contemporary paintings. All the key American exponents, such as Jasper Johns, Jim Dine, Roy Lictenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, and Ron Kitaj are represented, while in Britain artists like Richard Hamilton, David Hockney, Bridget Riley, Eduoardo Paolozzi and Patrick Caulfield were pushing forward the boundaries of the fine art print. This book explores the ever-increasing diversity of print-making - whether crossing over into installation art or incorporating the human body as both image and tool - and challenges our notion of what constitutes a fine art print, posing intriguing questions as to how the medium might develop in the future.
Описание: Spanning the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the exquisite examples of Japanese prints included in this book offer a collective history of an art form and vision that is distinctively Japanese and was highly inspirational to later European painters.
Описание: This important volume offers the first comprehensive look at the Arthur Ross Collection--more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, French, and Spanish prints--and is published to mark the inaugural exhibition of the collection in its new home at the Yale University Art Gallery. Highlights include superb etchings by Canaletto and Tiepolo; the four volumes of Piranesi's Antiquities of Rome, as well as his famous Vedute (Views) and Carceri (Prisons); Goya's Tauromaquia in its first edition of 1816; an extremely rare etching by Edgar Degas; and numerous other 19th-century French prints, by Eug ne Delacroix, Honor Daumier, douard Manet, Paul Gauguin, Paul C zanne, and others. The accompanying essays discuss the life of Arthur Ross, a significant philanthropist who funded several arts institutions; the formation of the collection and the art-historical significance of the works; and several thematic approaches to studying the collection, reinforcing its legacy as an important teaching resource.
