Описание: This richly illustrated volume reveals the intriguing story behind the commission, rejection, and rehousing of Jean- Honore Fragonard's Progress of Love, a series of 14 paintings considered by many to be the artist's masterpiece. Fragonard (1732-1806) completed four large canvases for the comtesse du Barry's chateau at Louveciennes, but they were replaced and returned to the artist. In 1790 Fragonard moved them to his cousin's house in Grasse, and over the course of the year painted two further large-scale works and 18 additional panels. With 140 colour images of the Fragonard paintings, details, shots of the room, plans, original sketches, and other comparative images, author Colin Bailey explores the commission of the four main panels, their original arrangement at Louveciennes and the possible reasons for their rejection. Equally enthralling is the history of how the paintings were rediscovered in the late 19th century and how they eventually came to The Frick Collection.

Описание: The Frick Collection in New York ranks among the world's most prestigious private art collections. It was founded by Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), the Pittsburgh coal and steel industrialist, who bequeathed his New York residence and the most outstanding of his many artworks to establish a public gallery for the purpose of "encouraging and developing the study of the fine arts." Chief among his bequests were some of the best known paintings by the greatest European artists, including Chardin, Constable, Corot, van Dyck, Gainsborough, Holbein, Ingres, Monet, Renoir, Titian, Turner, Vermeer and many others. The Frick Collection: Handbook of Paintings presents these exquisite works in full colour, providing key historical information and insightful interpretive viewpoints. Skillfully designed, in an elegant, accessible format, it is a superb addition to Scala's prestigious series on the great collections of the world.

Описание: Pittsburghs ghosts are as varied as its many neighborhoods. In the shadow of the University of Pittsburgh, curious boys investigate an abandoned house and find that some doors are better left unopened. In Robinson Township, a young woman wakes nightly to find a shadowy menace standing over her bed. On the banks of the Ohio River, a baby has a close call with a cold stove mysteriously running hot. A dying mans last wish is communicated from beyond the grave. Call them what you will: visits from the ethereal plain, the sixth sense, the fourth dimension, spectral visions, or cold spots. The tales you are about to read will chill you, and yet provide reassuring warmth that the living are not alone.
