Описание: In classical Athens, one of the pupils of Plato`s Academy is found dead. Suspecting this wasn`t an accident, his teacher asks Herakles, the "Decipherer of Enigmas", to investigate. A second plot unfolds in parallel through the footnotes of the translator of the text.
Описание: The first edition of "The Dictionary of Victorian Painters" was published in 1971 and contained details of 1,800 artists together with 250 illustrations. It became an accepted textbook on Victorian artists and was reprinted four times until a second, revised and much enlarged edition with 11,000 entries and 550 illustrations appeared in 1978. "The Dictionary" is now revised in two volumes, each complementary to one another yet entirely independent wos, depending on the particular interest of the reader. This volume contains over 11,000 entries, which have been revised and updated where appropriate to reflect recent research, as well as much additional material. In many cases the entries are treated as short essays and contain details of exhibitions and gallery viewings of artists' works. Every attempt has been made to make this edition a comprehensive one by listing every artist recorded during the period 1837-1901, even those who only exhibited one work. Research has been carried out into all available printed sources as well as saleroom and dealers' catalogues. Much of the information given is not to be found in any other works and "The Dictionary" is, therefore, an important source of reference for all with an interest in or who are concerned with art of the Victorian period.
Описание: Examines the life and work of Marie Spartali Stillman, an underrepresented artist of the British Pre-Raphaelite circleMarie Spartali Stillman (1844-1927) was one of a small number of professional female artists working in the second half of the nineteenth century. She was an important presence in the Victorian art world and closely affiliated with members of the Pre-Raphaelite circle, modeling for George Frederic Watts, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Edward Burne-Jones, among others. Desiring an artistic career of her own, she trained with Ford Madox Brown. After marrying the American painter and journalist William James Stillman, she lived in Italy, where she was deeply influenced by Renaissance art. This fully-illustrated catalogue provides the opportunity to examine approximately fifty of her works, many of which reside in private collections and have not been shown since Spartali Stillman's lifetime. Three essays and individual entries for each of the featured works focus on Spartali Stillman's biography and creative output. Jan Marsh is a freelance biographer, cultural historian, and exhibition curator specialising in Victorian art. Dr. Margaretta Frederick is the Chief Curator and Curator of the Samuel and Mary R. Bancroft Collection of Pre-Raphaelite Art at the Delaware Art Museum."

Описание: This Revelatory Book Concentrates On Scottish Women Painters And Sculptors From 1885, When Fra Newbery Became Director Of The Glasgow School Of Art, Until 1965, The Year Of Anne Redpath'S Death.
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.
Описание: Now available in a lovely new gift edition, this stunning bouquet of romantic paintings brings together two important aspects of Victorian culture - the Pre-Raphaelite movement and the language of flowers - in one exquisite volume.
Few artistic movements capture classic notions of beauty as romantically as the Pre-Raphaelites - a group of 19th century painters and poets who aimed to revive the purer art of the late medieval period. In this beautiful volume, Debra N. Mancoff, an expert on Pre-Raphaelite art and the floral lexicon, presents fory breathtaking examples, which illuminate the meaning of flowers in all aspects of Victorian culture. She offers brief commentaries on individual paintings as well as biographies of the period's leading artists and their models. A captivating introduction to an artistic movement, this exquisitely produced book is also a romantic keepsake of an artistic sensibility that speaks volumes.
Описание: Noted for its vivid colours, elaborate use of symbols, and dedication to close observation of the natural world, the work of Pre-Raphaelite artists combines a deep engagement with the past and a modern realism that exemplifies the concerns of the age of steam travel. In Reading the Pre-Raphaelites, author Tim Barringer draws on an imaginative selection of paintings, drawings, and photographs to suggest that the dynamic energy of Pre-Raphaelitism arose out of the paradoxes at its heart.
Past and present, historicism and modernity, symbolism and realism, as well as the tensions between city and country, men and women, worker and capitalist, colonizer and colonized all make appearances within Pre-Raphaelite art. By focusing on these issues, Barringer draws together the strands of revisionist thought on the Pre-Raphaelites and provides a range of stimulating new interpretations of their work. Beautifully illustrated, the second edition of this authoritative survey traces the history of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, and includes new sections on photography as well as a revised introduction and bibliography.
Описание: Marking the centenary of Simeon Solomon, an influential figure in the Pre-Raphaelite movement who's career was ended when his homosexuality became publicly known, this book explores his work in the context of Pre-Raphaelitism, Aestheticism, Judaism and modern-day studies of masculinity.
