Описание: Modern matters: A blow-by-blow account of groundbreaking modernismMost art historians agree that the modern art adventure first developed in the 1860s in Paris. A circle of painters, whom we now know as Impressionists, began painting pictures with rapid, loose brushwork. They turned to everyday street life for subjects, instead of overblown heroic scenes, and they escaped the power of the Salon by organizing their own independent exhibitions.After this first assault on the artistic establishment, there was no holding back. In a constant desire to challenge, innovate, and inspire, one modernist style supplanted the next: Symbolism, Expressionism, Futurism, Dada, Abstract Art, renewed Realism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Minimal and conceptual practice.This indispensable overview traces the restless energy of modern art with a year-by-year succession of the groundbreaking artworks that shook standards, and broke down barriers. Introductory essays outline the most significant and influential movements alongside explanatory texts for each major work and its artist.About the series: Bibliotheca Universalis Compact cultural companions celebrating the eclectic TASCHEN universe at an unbeatable, democratic price!Since we started our work as cultural archaeologists in 1980, the name TASCHEN has become synonymous with accessible, open-minded publishing.

Описание: These radiant images from the renowned 19th-century biologist and illustrator Ernst Haeckel, featuring marine microorganisms, will enthrall fans of his previous collections and garner-renewed attention for Haeckel s unparalleled artistry.
From jewellery designers to scientists, graphic artists to naturalists, the range of people inspired by Ernst Haeckel s illustrations continues to grow. Following up on Prestel s Art Forms in Nature and Art Forms from the Ocean, this new collection features startlingly beautiful images created by Haeckel, who was commissioned to contribute to the report of the HMS Challenger expedition, which circumnavigated the world from 1872 76. The Challenger s achievements were unparalleled, with nearly 5,000 new species discovered and catalogued from the depths of Earth s oceans. Full-page reproductions bring these organisms colourfully to life, drawing readers into a world at once hypnotic and highly ordered. Divided into three sections Siphonophores, Medusae and Radiolarians these illustrations display Haeckel s remarkable artistic skill and understanding of the architecture of organic matter. The authors provide a brief history of the Challenger expedition, background on Haeckel s scientific and artistic accomplishments, as well as informative texts on each group of organisms. A guide to the natural world and an inspiration to artists of every stripe, this collection of Haeckel s work is a fitting tribute to a 19th century genius.

Описание: Collage is as topical as ever. The Age of Collage Vol. 2 is a striking collection of work that ranges from subversive to museum-worthy. While some examples make explicit statements, others are gloriously Dada. Bringing disparate images and items together, collage transcends the boundaries between artistic disciplines. The traditionally analog technique has its roots in surrealism and Dada. Having effortlessly evolved to embrace digital tools and the combinatory freedom that they offer, collage is now making a promising comeback. The Age of Collage Vol.2 presents the work of more than 80 collage artists -- from established names including John Baldessari and Richard Prince to up-andcoming talents such as Lola Dupre. A follow- up to The Age of Collage, the book is a comprehensive showcase of the surprising diversity of this genre today."
