Описание: The most complete publication to date on the complex story of the Caravaggesque style. Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) is probably the most admired, studied and universally known painter of 17th century Italy. Every knows the legend of this cursed and hot-tempered painter, who was rejected by the Roman Curia for his paintings, which were considered to be inappropriate and even scandalous. However, a more complete picture of this artist as the skilful director of a career fostered and protected by influential cardinals and important nobles families has been known for some time now, in all its complexity. Although many questions still remain regarding Caravaggios body of work, it is certain that he never formed a proper school or studio. Caravaggio did however have a substantial circle of followers throughout Europe, an unofficial school formed by those who knew him personally and were in direct contact with his works, and also by those who discovered his work following his death. PLEASE NOTE: text is in Italian with translated English foreword only.

Описание: Eight French painters born after 1870 are brought together for the first time in
an exhibition that highlights their mutual affinities and charts their respective
influences and evolutions.
Aside from Gaston Balande (1880-1971), who is well known for his art deco wall
murals designed for transatlantic ships, and Paul Deltombe (1878-1971), who
benefited from a retrospective exhibition in 1970, the work of the other painters
collected here has remained uncelebrated for far too long. The present exhibition
and its catalogue aim to repair this oversight, as well as to reignite the study of this
generation of French painters who, without turning their back on the avant-gardists,
concentrated primarily on the traditional genre of landscape, and to a lesser degree
The 80 works of art, mainly painted between the wars, are at the crossroads of the
many influences of this creative period, where tradition and the avant-garde blended
together without restraint.
This syncretism is frequently illustrated by landscapes where the diversity reflects
the search for new effects and beautiful themes as well as an appetite for travel and
discoveries. This panorama of Douce France signals the last breath for this pictorial
style that was the inheritor and continuation of the Impressionist movement –a status that was bound to be lost forever after the Second World War.

Описание: There was a time-as recently as the 1980s-when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our visual landscape.
Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. In 2010 filmmakers Faythe Levine, coauthor of Handmade Nation , and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. Sign Painters , the first anecdotal history of the craft, features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States.

Описание: Explores the lives of 366 nineteenth-century painters, detailing their art education, influences, and styles accompanied by full-color reproductions of their most representative artworks.
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.
