Arcimboldo : 1526-1593 by Musée national du Luxembourg (France)( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in French and English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous all over the world for his portraits (illustrated composites of plants, fruit, and animals combined to create the illusion of a human form) Arcimboldo still remains, paradoxically, a painter shrouded in mystery. This important monograph reveals the eclecticism of one of the most fertile and lively minds of the Mannerist period, placing him in the cultural context in which he lived and worked. Admired during his life, Arcimboldo fell into oblivion after his death in 1593. His original, eccentric works have been little understood, but were rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century by the Surrealists, who considered him a precursor of Modern art. His work has enjoyed a particular revival of interest again over the last twenty years. In addition to the artist's anamorphic portraits, this volume includes an important selection of Arcimboldo's paintings (many previously unpublished), tapestries, drawings, and illustrations created throughout his life, from his training in Lombardy to his time at the Hapsburg court. This volume will enable readers to discover and appreciate the scope of the great Arcimboldo's extraordinary work. - Publisher

Die von dieser Publikation begleitete Ausstellung in Wien ist in den Monaten vor seinem Tod im Juli 2011 in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Künstler konzipiert worden und somit die letzte, die Lucian Freud zu Lebzeiten selbst zusammengestellt hat. Werke aus seiner gesamten, siebzig Jahre währenden Schaffensperiode werden gezeigt, und erstmals sind jene Bilder hier vereint, die er selbst für seine wichtigsten Arbeiten hielt. Unter ihnen befinden sich einige seiner berühmtesten Gemälde: Selbstporträts, Bildnisse von Freuds Familienmitgliedern oder anderen Künstlern wie Francis Bacon, aber auch Landschaften und Stillleben. Zugleich erkennt man Freuds grosses Interesse an den Werken der Alten Meister und der altägyptischen Kunst. Eine Hommage an einen großen Künstler - von ihm selbst als kostbares Vermächtnis autorisiert. Exhibition: Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, Austria (8.10.2013-6.1.2014)
Pieter Bruegel the Elder at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna by Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1528/30-1569) is one of the most popular artists in the history of Western art. Famous for having elevated the status of landscape painting until it became a virtually independent genre, he is also considered to be the greatest 16th century Flemish master of scenes from ordinary life." "This beautifully illustrated volume presents the extraordinary paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder belonging to the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Shown in full colour, both in their entirety and in close-up detail, are twelve world-famous masterpieces: The Tower of Babel, Peasant Wedding, Peasant Dance, Hunters in the Snow, Children's Games, The Fight between Carnival and Lent. The Procession to Calvary, The Gloomy Day, The Return of the Herd, The Peasant and the Nest Robber, The Conversion of St. Paul and Suicide of Saul."--Jacket

Joseph Cornell : Wanderlust by Joseph Cornell( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Cornell (1903-1972) was one of the twentieth century's leading exponents of collage and assemblage. A connoisseur of an astonishing range of subjects, Cornell was captivated with bygone imagery encompassing astronomical charts and geographical maps, as well as Italian and Spanish Old Master paintings, historical ballet, early cinema, literature, poetry, ornithology and astronomy. Most iconic among his works are the box constructions filled with once-precious fragments that he collected from the thrift shops of his native New York; the results of his collecting "microcosmic cabinets of curiosity" echo the great Enlightenment projects of amassing and categorising material. This book is landmark publication examining this remarkable artist's oeuvre. It brings together some of his most compelling assemblages and box constructions.

Late Titian and the sensuality of painting by Titian( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mid-sixteenth century, at almost 60 years of age, Titian invented a new way of painting: the paint was applied to the canvas rapidly and freely and overlaid with brushstrokes that were both light and dense: the forms broke up and a great sensuality and profound spirituality became evident. Titian used an extraordinarily prescient technique to create engaging, stirring painting that in some ways seems to relate to the literary work of the poet Torquato Tasso and even take up the imaginary writings of Ludovico Ariosto published in Venice in the 1530s. Such a painting style had never previously been imagined and was so revolutionary that it was to influence many artists of subsequent centuries through to the modern age. Late Titian became the yardstick not only for younger contemporary painters like Tintoretto, Veronese and Bassano, but also great artists of subseqent cewnturies like Rubens, Rembandt, Velazquez, Gericault and Delacroix and on to the Expressionists
