Modernism : designing a new world, 1914-1939 by Victoria and Albert Museum( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book to explore Modernism from a truly international perspective, Modernism: designing a new world offers a reassessment of the concept and reveals the fundamental ways in which it has shaped our world and its visual culture. Modernism flourished between 1914 and 1939, and became a key point of reference for 20th-century architecture, art, and design. This important, lavishly illustrated book demonstrates the movement's continued influence, on everything from the chairs we sit on to the buildings we occupy. The range of objects illustrated-including the fine arts as well as architecture, furniture, manufactured products, film, and graphic design-reflect the period's emphasis on the unity of the arts. Key artists and designers include Mondrian, Le Corbusier, Bourke-White, Eisenstein, and Breuer, along with lesser-known figures from around the globe

Shoes by Lucy Johnston( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From very long pointed toes in the Middle Ages to exotic creations of the 1990s, the story of footwear is a lively and evocative reflection of styles, fashions and moments in history. In Henry VIII's time, for example, exaggerated shapes and wide toes mirrored the aggressive social climate, while engravings of Queen Victoria showed impossibly narrow slippers in pursuit of nineteenth-century ideals of daintiness." "Engravings, paintings and advertisements help to tell the story, and the specially commissioned photography reveals the glorious colours and styles in stunning detail."--Jacket

The art of death : visual culture in the English death ritual, c. 1500-c. 1800 by Nigel Llewellyn( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did our ancestors die? Whereas in our own day the subject of death is usually avoided, in pre-Industrial England the rituals and processes of death were present and immediate. People not only surrounded themselves with memento mori, they also sought to keep alive memories of those who had gone before. This continual confrontation with death was enhanced by a rich culture of visual artifacts. In The Art of Death, Nigel Llewellyn explores the meanings behind an astonishing range of these artifacts, and describes the attitudes and practices which lay behind their production and use. Illustrated and explained in this book are an array of little-known objects and images such as death's head spoons, jewels and swords, mourning-rings and fans, wax effigies, church monuments, Dance of Death prints, funeral invitations and ephemera, as well as works by well-known artists, including Holbein, Hogarth and Blake.-from publisher

6 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Getty Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum - most of them in color - this volume will be indispensable to all readers wishing to increase their enjoyment and understanding of European sculpture."--Jacket
Design & the decorative arts : Britain, 1500-1900 by Michael Snodin( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the story of design and the decorative arts in Britain over 400 from the Tudors to the reign of Queen Victoria. It is the story of a remarkable transformation that embraced the decorative arts in all their rich diversity, from furniture to fabrics and from prints to porcelain. In 1500, at the end of the Middle Ages, Britain played a peripheral role in the affairs of Europe. It was beautiful things created in the workshops of Venice and Florence, of Antwerp and Paris that were coveted throughout western Europe, not those made in London or Edinburgh. The range of high-design objects made in Britain was limited. British craftspeople lacked skills and there was heavy dependence on the expertise of foreigners. Four centuries later, in the reign of Queen Victoria, all this had changed. Britain had become the workshop of the world. Its queen ruled an empire that embraced a fifth of the earth's land surface and a quarter of its people. London was rivalled only by Paris as a focus for international interest in design and the decorative arts. By the nineteenth century, British design was widely admired and copied. Its products could be found right across the globe, from palaces and stately homes to the living rooms of ordinary people." "The book is divided into three sections, each dealing with a different stage in this great transformation: Tudor and Stuart, 1500-1714; Georgian, 1714-1837; Victorian, 1837-1901. These sections explore design and the decorative arts from a number of points of view. They examine style, the question of how things looked. They ask who led taste - who decided what was to be considered beautiful, fashionable and desirable. They look at how fashionable things - from household goods to clothing - were used in daily life. They ask what was new, examining new products and the impact of innovation on design. Together, the chapters provide a fascinating picture of four centuries that saw Britain's international artistic reputation transformed from one of relative obscurity to widespread acclaim." "Written by Michael Snodin and John Styles of the Victoria and Albert Museum, with additional contributions from other leading experts, the publication celebrates the opening of the Museum's new British Galleries 1500-1900. It draws on the V & A's unequalled resources for the study of design and the decorative arts. Nearly 1,000 colour illustrations are drawn principally from the Museum's world-renowned collections."--Jacket
