Описание: Russia's last great Imperial celebration took place at the Winter Palace in St Petersburg with the lavish ball of 1913 celebrating 300 years of Romanov rule. The finest gowns, jewels, snuff boxes, and banqueting tableware of the Tsarist era were sumptuously displayed then for the last time. The outbreak of World War I in 1914 and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 brought such opulence to an end. Ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russians have been eager to repatriate their lost heritage. Works by jewellers and silversmiths to the Tsars are particularly sought after today as status symbols, with the market for pre-Revolutionary decorative arts touching a wide audience - from the curators at the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, to the pre-dawn bargain hunters at the Paris flea markets. Russian Decorative Arts offers an introductory guide to porcelain, glass, silver, Tula work and other base metals, orders and decorations, jewellery, objects of virtue, Faberge, lapidary, woodwork and walrus ivory. Each topic is detailed in an illustrated chapter introducing the techniques, its specific Russian characteristics and an overview of the principle makers.
Описание: Offers an overview of the Getty`s collections and provides a history of the museum and its founder. This volume features treasures of the ancient world and medieval manuscripts, impressionist paintings, and American photographs. It also offers an indispensable look at Getty Villa in Malibu and Getty Center on a hilltop in Brentwood.
Описание: For nearly three decades, the J. Paul Getty Museum has played a leading role in the development of seismic mitigation for museum collections. Contributors to this volume--ranging from museum conservators, mount makers, and historical archaeologists to seismologists and structural engineers--discuss and illustrate a wide variety of earthquake-mitigation efforts for collections, from the simple and inexpensive to the complex and costly. The book's essays examine the techniques applied to large collections and to small house museums, to exhibition cases containing objects as well as to monumental works of art and historical structures. Approaches range from securing and restraining objects to decoupling them from the ground through a variety of base-isolation mechanisms. These pioneering efforts have been developed in the face of significant challenges since, as any engineer, conservator, or mount maker who has undertaken this work can attest, a small sculpture can often be a far greater challenge to protect than a multistory building.
Описание: In the years following the invention of photography in 1839, practitioners in France gave shape to this intriguing new medium through experimental printing techniques and innovative compositions.
Описание: A handbook to the collections at the J. Paul Getty Museum. In total some 340 works of art from the different collections are reproduced here, including antiquities, illuminated manuscripts, paintings, decorative arts, sculpture and photographs.
Описание: This volume contains photographs from The Getty Museum by David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson. During their association Hill and Adamson experimented with some of the earliest calotype processes creating hundreds of portraits, staged dramatic photographs, and landscape images.

Описание: This new edition includes many of the new additions to the J. Paul Getty Museum`s paintings collection, among them Gentileschi`s "Lot and His Daughters"; Hobbena`s "Landscape"; a canvas painted by both Rubens and Brueghel, "Mars and Venus"; Monet`s "Sunrise"; and Cezanne`s "Italian Girl".
Описание: Here is a set of essays on Historia general del Piru that discuss not only the manuscript`s physical components--quires and watermarks, scripts and pigments--but also its relation to other Andean manuscripts, Inca textiles, European portraits, and Spanish sources and publication procedures. The sum is an unusually detailed and interdisciplinary analysis of the creation and fate of a historical and artistic treasure.
Описание: This volume presents 31 papers grouped into four topic areas: wood science and technology; history of panel manufacturing techniques; history of the structural conservation of panel paintings; and current approaches to the structural conservation of panel paintings.
