"I have made it my concern to hunt out this technique for your study as I learned it by looking and listening." On Divers Arts, c. 1122, is the oldest extant manual on artistic crafts to be written by a practicing artist. Before Theophilus, manuscripts on the arts came from scholars and philosophers standing outside the actual profession. On Divers Arts describes actual 12th-century techniques in painting, glass, and metalwork, which the Benedictine author wished to pass on to those gifted by God with a talent for making beautiful things. Theophilus teaches, with rigorous attention to fact but also with great reverence the making of pigments for fresco painting, the manufacture of glue, the technique of gold leaf on parchment (the first recorded European reference to true paper), how to blow glass and design stained glass windows, how to fashion gold and silver chalices, and how to make a pipe organ and church bells. Precise instruction on enameling, chasing, repoussé, niello, and beaded wire work prove Theophilus's first-hand knowledge of his craft. While 90 percent of Theophilus's writing is sound technical knowledge, medieval folk lore occasionally spices his text: "Tools are also made harder by hardening them in the urine of a small red-headed boy than by doing so in plain water." But the magnificent fact of On Divers Art remains its status as the first technical treatise on painting, glass, and metalwork, for which actual specimens still survive. The editors have taken care to ensure both philological and technological accuracy for this authoritative edition of a medieval classic, a manual of great importance to craftsmen, historians of art and science, and all who delight in the making of the beautiful

Anglo-Saxon gestures and the Roman stage by C. R Dodwell( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is concerned with the pictorial language of gesture revealed in Anglo-Saxon art, and its debt to classical Rome. Reginald Dodwell, an eminent art historian and former Director of the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, notes a striking similarity of both form and meaning between Anglo-Saxon gestures and those in illustrated manuscripts of the plays of Terence." "The book, which is extensively illustrated, illuminates our understanding of the vigour of late Anglo-Saxon art and its ability to absorb and transpose continental influence."--Jacket

Jewish art treasures from Prague : the State Jewish Museum in Prague and its collections : a catalogue by Státní židovské muzeum (Czech Republic)( Book )

19 editions published in 1980 in 3 languages and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1980 exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, for which this is the catalogue, comprises 300 of the finest examples drawn from the State Jewish Museum, Prague which houses the most important collections of Judaica in the world. It is the only showing of this extensive exhibition in the West. The Jewish ritual art included in it spans the period from the late Renaissance to the early twentieth century and includes synagogue textiles, historic and decorative work in silver and other metals, paintings depicting the elaborate ritual of the late eighteenth-century Prague Burial Brotherhood, glass and ceramics. From the twentieth century come drawings and paintings by adult artists and by some of the thousands of children who were imprisoned in the Terezín concentration camp and who died as victims of the holocaust. Exhibition and catalogue offer a glimpse of the rich heritage of Jewish life in Central Europe since the Middle Ages, and a modest memorial to the Jewish community in Bohemia and Moravia who were virtually exterminated by the Nazis."--Publisher's description
