Victoria & Albert : art & love ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 230 libraries worldwide
"This major contribution to the studies of the Victorian era explores the period from Queen Victoria's accession in 1837 to Prince Albert's death in 1861. These were the times when Buckingham Palace was known as 'the headquarters of taste', when royal patronage was still an essential part in a successful artistic career, and when the royal couple were passionately involved together in the artistic life of the nation." "Victoria and Albert were enthusiastic patrons of the arts throughout their marriage, commissioning and collecting works from both British and European artists. This book reveals the closeness of their relationships with particular artist - Landseer, Gibson, Marochetti, Winterhalter, Dyce, Gruner and Triqueti - and in over 450 colour illustrations examines the complete range of their extensive personal collection, from Old Master paintings to sculpture, furniture, jewellery and fine bindings. This book also features their own artistic work, from paintings, drawings and etchings to the souvenir albums lovingly assembled to record and commemorate their family life." "In addition, both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert viewed their roles as patrons of the arts as being part of the public duties of the monarchy, and as a reflection of the artistic life of the nation as a whole. Victoria & Albert Art & love includes new research not only on the couple's private commissions, but also on their involvement in the ground breaking 'Great Exhibition' in 1851."--BOOK JACKET.
Bruegel to Rubens : masterpieces of Flemish painting by Desmond Shawe-Taylor ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 229 libraries worldwide
"It is said that much of the greatest art is produced during periods of strife. In the mid-sixteenth century, the Netherlands - the United Provinces in the north (modern Holland) and the Spanish-ruled south (modern Belgium) - was the most sophisticated society in Europe, but its learning and luxury industries were all but annihilated by the so-called Dutch Revolt and the Eighty Years War that followed (1568-1648). Two-thirds of the works discussed here were painted during this turbulent period, including Pieter Bruegel's Massacre of the Innocents of 1567. Other highlights include works by his son Jan Brueghel, while the Twelve Year Truce (1609-21) is celebrated by a group of landscapes (including three by Rubens) depicting the blessings of peace and the fertility of the region." "During the Renaissance the Low Countries attained a flawless technique of painting and the highest standards of craftsmanship. This tradition survived during even the worst years of the war. Everyone is familiar with the Golden Age of Dutch art; this is an opportunity to explore its no less glorious Flemish counterpart."--BOOK JACKET.
