Описание: The last in a series of books devoted to the work of John Singer Sargent (1856 1925), this volume covers the figure and landscape works that Sargent produced between 1914 and 1925. The story begins with the artist painting with friends on vacation in Austria in the summer of 1914, unaware that war was about to be declared. The following year, he began working in London on his ideas for the murals at the Boston Public Library and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, before spending two years in Boston and exploring other parts of America. While in Florida to paint a portrait of John D. Rockefeller, he produced a group of uniquely Floridian watercolors that are breathtaking arrangements of color, form, and light. In July 1918 he accepted an invitation from the British government to travel to the Somme battlefields as an official war artist. This experience led him to produce a remarkable group of works depicting troop movements, off-duty soldiers relaxing, and the studies for his epic canvas, "Gassed." Sargent returned to Boston in 1921 and 1922 to complete his mural projects, and visits to Maine and New Hampshire yielded numerous watercolors. Chapters on Sargent s materials and the framing of his pictures complete this remarkable project."

Описание: Inventing Abstraction 1910-1925 explores the development of abstraction from the moment of its declaration around 1912 to its establishment as the foundation of avant-garde practice in the mid-1920s. The book brings together many of the most influential works in abstractions early history to draw a cross-media portrait of this watershed moment in which traditional art was reinvented in a wholesale way. Works are presented in groups that serve as case studies, each engaging a key topic in abstractions first years: an artist, a movement, an exhibition or thematic concern. Key focal points include Vasily Kandinskys ambitious Compositions V, VI and VII; a selection of Piet Mondrians work that offers a distilled narrative of his trajectory to Neo-plasticism; and all the extant Suprematist pictures that Kazimir Malevich showed in the landmark 0.10 exhibition in 1915.
Описание: Late nineteenth-century Britain experienced an explosion of interest in sculpture. Sculptors of the "New Sculpture" movement engaged in a wide range of
experimentation, seeking a new direction and a modern idiom for their art. This book analyzes for the first time the art-theoretical concerns of the late-Victorian sculptors, focusing on
their attitudes toward the representation of the human body.
David J. Getsy uncovers a previously unrecognised sophistication in the New Sculpture through close study of
works by key figures in the movement: Frederic Leighton, Alfred Gilbert, Hamo Thorneycroft, Edward Onslow Ford, and James Havard Thomas. These artists sought to activate and
animate the conventional format of the ideal statue so that it would convincingly and compellingly stand in for both a living body and an ideal image.
conventions that had characterised much previous sculpture in Britain, they fervently pursued a commitment to the mimetic rendering of the body in three dimensions. In response to
the problems and perils of such a commitment, late-Victorian sculptors worked to develop strategies that allowed them to accommodate naturalism and symbolism as well as the
materiality of sculpture. Getsy offers an analysis of the conceptual complexity of the New Sculpture and places its concerns within the larger framework of the development of modern
Описание: The correspondence between the poet Rupert Brooke (1887-1915) and his friend James Strachey, later the primary English translator of the works of Sigmund Freud, appears in print here for the first time. These rich and varied letters - often irreverent, sometimes humorous, and so profoundly revealing that Brooke's literary executors long resisted their publication - illuminate one of the final pieces of the complex puzzle of Brooke's life. Brooke appears to have written more frequently to Strachey than to anyone other than his mother, and was more candid in this correspondence than in others in which he often assumed a variety of carefully constructed poses. Friends from schooldays, Brooke and Strachey were undergraduates at Cambridge when James fell in love with his handsome, celebrated companion. As well as their shared interest in politics, literature, art and theatre, the letters deal often and explicitly with the subject of homosexuality and with the sometimes scandalous activities of many of their close circle. Brooke and Strachey compare observations of fellow members of the exclusive Cambridge 'Apostles' (which included James's brother Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, E.M. Forster and Bertrand Russell), of mutual Bloomsbury friends (such as Virginia Woolf, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and George Mallory) and of such fellow Fabian Socialists as Hugh Dalton and Beatrice Webb. The correspondence provides important new biographical, psychological and cultural insights into Rupert Brooke and his poetry, and reveals the complexities of the man behind the heroic legend that his early death inspired. Keith Hale has a PhD in Modern British Literature from Purdue University and is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Guam. He has published two novels and a volume of travel writing.
