Leonardo da Vinci, anatomist by Leonardo ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book offers 87 of Da Vinci's finest and most important studies of the human body, with full scientific and art-historical explanations and discussions. Leonardo has long been recognised as one of the great artists of the Renaissance, but he was also a pioneer in the understanding of human anatomy. He dissected more than 30 human corpses, exploring every aspect of anatomy and physiology, and recorded his findings in drawings and notes that bear witness to his astonishing insights into the subject. He intended to publish his ground-breaking work in a treatise on anatomy, and had he done so his discoveries would have transformed European knowledge of the subject. But on Leonardo's death in 1519 the drawings remained a mass of undigested material among his private papers and their significance was effectively lost to the world for almost 400 years, and were almost unknown until 1900

The Northern Renaissance in Europe was a period of rapid social and religious change. This book discusses works by Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein--two of the greatest masters of the northern Renaissance--together with a selection of paintings by Lucas Cranach. Encompassing portraiture, religion, mythology, and allegory, these works are examined alongside others by such masters as Francois Clouet, Jan Gossaert and Joos van Cleve. Holbein's superlative drawings of members of the court of King Henry VIII can be seen side-by-side with finished paintings and miniatures of the same sitters; and this survey also includes illuminated manuscripts and early printed books. Exhibition: Queen's Gallery, The Palace of Holyroodhouse (April 2011) and at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace (October 2012)

Victoria & Albert : art & love by Victoria and Albert Museum ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member 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
Dutch landscapes by Desmond Shawe-Taylor ( Book )

Bruegel to Rubens : masterpieces of Flemish painting by Desmond Shawe-Taylor ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member 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
