Ape to Apollo : aesthetics and the idea of race in the 18th century by David Bindman ( Book )
21 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ape to Apollo is the first book to follow the development in the eighteenth-century of the idea of race as it shaped and was shaped by the idea of aesthetics. Twelve full-color illustrations and sixty-five black-and-white illustrations from publications and artists of the day allow the reader to see eighteenth-century concepts of race translated into images. Human "varieties" are marked in such illustration by exaggerated differences, with emphases on variations from the European ideal and on the characteristics that allegedly divided the races."--BOOK JACKET
The image of the Black in western art ( Book )
in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The 1960s, as a response to segregation in the United States, the influential art patron Dominique de Menil began a research project and photo archive called The Image of the Black in Western Art. Now, fifty years later, as the first American president of African American descent serves his historic term in office, her mission has been re-invigorated through the collaboration of Harvard University Press and the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research to present new editions of the coveted five original books and the anticipated new volumes which shall complete the series. The completed set will include ten sumptuous books in five volumes with up-to-date introductions and more full-color illustrations, printed on high-quality art stock for books that will last a lifetime. This monumental publication offers expert commentary and a lavishly illustrated history of the representations of people of African descent ranging from the ancient images of Pharaohs created by unknown hands to the works of the great European masters such as Bosch, Rembrandt, Rubens, and Hogarth to stunning new creations by contemporary black artists. Featuring thousands of beautiful, moving, and often little-known images of black people, including queens and slaves, saints and soldiers, children and gods, The Image of the Black in Western Art provides a treasury of masterpieces from four millennia--a testament to the black experience in the West and a tribute to art's enduring power to shape our common humanity. Volume II, Part 1, written largely by the noted French scholar Jean Devisse, has established itself as a classic in the field of medieval art. It surveys as never before the presence of black people, mainly mythical, in art from the early Christian era to the fourteenth century. The extraordinary transformation of Saint Maurice into a black African saint, the subject of many noble and deeply touching images, is a highlight of this volume. The new introduction by Paul Kaplan provides a fresh perspective on the image of the black in medieval European art and contextualizes the classic essays on the subject. --Book Jacket

Samuel Palmer, 1805-1881 : vision and landscape by William Vaughan ( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Samuel Palmer (1805-81) is one of the most original and influential of British painters. A younger contemporary of Turner and Constable, he looked at nature as much with the inner as with the outer eye, producing vision-inspired landscapes of unprecedented boldness and great poetic richness that form a striking contrast to the dominating naturalism of the day." "Marking the bicentenary of Palmer's birth, this catalogue is published to accompany the largest retrospective exhibition of his work for nearly eighty years. Bringing together nearly all his greatest works from collections around the world, supplemented with essays by eight distinguished scholars, it celebrates the full range of the artist's achievement."--BOOK JACKET
Roubiliac and the eighteenth-century monument : sculpture as theatre by David Bindman ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first comprehensive study of Roubiliac since 1928, this innovative book looks at his work within a broad cultural framework and explores tomb sculpture in the context of the period. David Bindman begins the volume with a discussion of the reasons for, as well as the expectations associated with, the commissioning of funereal sculpture. Discussing ideas of death and the afterlife, the setting of the tomb, and the fictions governing its imagery, he then considers Roubiliac's monuments with particular reference to the negotiations with patrons which contributed to their final form. In the second part of the book, Malcolm Baker examines the design and making of the monuments, analysing documentary evidence, surviving models and the construction of the monuments themselves, and relates Roubiliac's procedures to contemporary sculptural practice

The English journey : journal of a visit to France and Britain in 1826 by Karl Friedrich Schinkel ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1826 the great German architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel made a tour of France, England, Scotland and Wales. It was a technical mission, undertaken on behalf of the Prussian State, with the purpose of seeing the factories, bridges, warehouses and museums that were under construction at the time. He kept a journal in which he recorded the new buildings he saw in Paris as well as his busy social life there; he mused about Britain, its inhabitants and its architecture, and sketched the workshops and machinery that interested him. This book contains the first complete translation into English of Schinkel's journal, as well as the drawings he made while he was travelling. The journal marks a crucial point in Schinkel's career, for it represents the beginning of his serious involvement with the new technologies that he later employed in the buildings he designed on his return to Berlin. At the same time the journal gives a unique impression of Regency Britain as seen by a foreign architect. Sites that no longer exist in London, Oxford and Edinburgh, as well as the potteries, the Menai straits and the industrial towns and factories of northern Britain are recreated here through Schinkel's discussions and drawings, among the very few surviving records of the face of Britain at the time of the Industrial Revolution. Part travelogue and part cultural critique, the book will appeal to students of the architect himself it will also be invaluable for all those interested in early nineteenth-century Britain. The text, which is augmented by Schinkel's long descriptive letters to his wife, is accompanied by numerous illustrations of drawings and pages from the journal, and contemporary engravings of the places mentioned, as well as a full introduction and explanatory notes

Mind-forg'd manacles : William Blake and slavery by David Bindman ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"William Blake (1757-1827) was unusually aware of the horrors of slavery, which he knew about in detail from a book he illustrated. But slavery was to him not only a physical system but a mental state of restricted perception that he called 'mind-forg'd manacles'. Mental enslavement and its opposite, freedom, gave rise to his most dramatic and complex text and images. With over 60 vivid reproductions from Blake's illuminated books, watercolours and engravings in the British Museum, this volumes includes an essay by the curator, leading Blake scholar David Bindman on the theme of slavery in Blake's visual imagery, and another by novelist and literary critic Darryl Pinckney on Olaudah Equiano, an African former slave who campaigned for the abolition of slavery in Blake's time. This book commemorates both the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in Britain, and the 250th anniversary of Blake's birth."--BOOK JACKET
