Описание: With the rise of museums in the 19th century, including the formation in 1824 of the National Gallery in London, as well as the proliferation of widely available published reproductions, the art of the past became visible and accessible in Victorian England as never before. Inspired by the work of Sandro Botticelli, Jan van Eyck, Diego Velazquez, and others, British artists elevated contemporary art to new heights through a creative process that emphasized imitation and emulation. Elizabeth Prettejohn analyzes the ways in which the Old Masters were interpreted by critics, curators, and scholars, and argues that Victorian artists were, paradoxically, at their most original when they imitated the Old Masters most faithfully. Covering the arc of Victorian art from the Pre-Raphaelites through to the early modernists, this volume traces the ways in which artists such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, and William Orpen engaged with the art of the past and produced some of the greatest art of the later 19th century.
Описание: "20th Century Painters and Sculptors" encompasses not only the most complex but the most colourful period in the development of British Art. From the tidy subject groupings of the 19th century (genre scenes, child studies, historical, landscape etc.) the modern artist has explored the most abstract and intense expressions of his art. Schools of artists have worked together, movements have espoused artistic and social theories, wars have influenced subjects. Terms like Surrealism, Abstraction, Post-impressionism, Pop Art and the Modem Movement are in constant use but not always understood or their followers known. Frances Spalding provides an introduction to this complex period followed by an illustrated Dictionary which gives biographical and (where appropriate) stylistic information about the work and development of some 7,000 artists and sculptors, many of whom are still living.
