Masks : faces of culture by John W Nunley( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transporting readers across centuries and continents, this volume presents masks from all over the world. 200 colorplates provide such stunning and diverse examples as an intricately carved coronation mask from Cameroon; an exquisite gold Egyptian mummy mask; colorful Mexican Day of the Dead masks; and breathtaking Noh theater masks from Japan." "Accompanying the photographs are essays tracing the functions of masks throughout history, written by scholars in the fields of art history, anthropology, decorative arts and design, and theater. John Nunley examines cross-cultural themes in his discussion of the origins of masks and their use in rituals. He also analyzes the phenomenon of men who "cross-dress" in masquerade, because women are not allowed to wear masks in many societies." "John Emigh and Lesley K. Ferris explore the role of masks in theater, whose roots lie in ritual performance. Cara McCarty looks at the ways in which masks are featured in the medium of film as well. But these artistic examples are not the only masks found in industrial societies. McCarty also discusses the proliferation of masks for physical protection, in areas such as military combat, sports competitions, and space exploration."--Jacket

Medardo Rosso : second impressions by Harry Cooper( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Italian artist Medardo Rosso (1858-1928) is a key figure in the development of modern sculpture. His portraits and figure studies have long been considered sculptural equivalents to impressionism's concern with light at the expense of form. This book - the first comprehensive study of Rosso's art - presents an artist more deeply concerned with materials, process, and the reproduction of his works than previously imagined." "Rosso's fascination with technique is explored in detail from art historical, technical, and phenomenological perspectives. Drawing on a wealth of new archival material and close-up study of the sculptures, the authors show that Rosso's waxes - his best-known works - were not modeled by hand but cast with the help of gelatin molds. The authors compare wax, plaster, and bronze casts of the same subjects to show that the manipulation of materials for visual effect was at the heart of his work. The book also reproduces and analyzes Rosso's fascinating photographs of his own sculpture, which offer important clues to the charged relationship he sought to create between viewers and the mysterious busts and figures he made."--Jacket
Revealing the Holy Land : the photographic exploration of Palestine by Kathleen Stewart Howe( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the catalog for an exhibition of ninety nineteenth-century photographs drawn primarily from the world-class collection of Michael G. Wilson. Included are the starkly beautiful photographs of Sergeant James McDonald's surveys of Palestine and Jerusalem recently discovered photographs by Ernest Benecke and the rare photographs by Maxime Du Camp taken in 1850 as he traveled with Flaubert. With the invention of photography and the increasing popularity of travel in the mid-nineteenth century, the Holy Land became one of the most photographed places on earth. Interest in Jerusalem and Palestine was particularly pronounced in England, partly because of England's need to control its routes to the riches of India, but also because of Britain's cultural identification with the people and lands of the Bible. Imperial ambition and deeply ingrained cultural associations resulted in a surge of photographic activity in Palestine. McDonald's photographs from surveys of Jerusalem and the Sinai epitomize the dual imperatives of Bible and Empire. Photography provided a new standard for authenticity in pictorial representations. Early photographs were considered the ultimate bearers of "reality" at a time when viewers had not yet lost their naive faith in the objective accuracy of photography. Throughout the last half of the nineteenth century, the Holy Land drew legions of photographers: amateurs recording a stop on the Grand Tour, academics pursuing archaeological theories, military surveyors--all trying to capture the truthfulness of a land that had enormous spiritual, emotional, and political connotations for most of the Western world. What they saw, and how they saw it, are the themes of this beautifully recorded collection. ... Publisher description

De Parijse jaren van de Duitse beeldend kunstenaar (1884-1950)
Federico Barocci : Renaissance master of color and line by Judith Walker Mann( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federico Barocci (c. 1533/35-1612) was one of the most innovative Italian artists of the second half of the 16th century. His art combines the Renaissance focus on the human body with an unparalleled use of colour and light. He created dynamic compositions that challenged the limitations of traditional pictorial boundaries, becoming a model for Baroque artists of the following century. Nearly 1,500 drawings by Barocci survive, providing invaluable insight into the artist's process and thinking. Essays by leading scholars in the field discuss the role of Urbino - Barocci's hometown - in the artist's development; his pioneering approach to religious subjects; his technique as a draftsman; the interdependence of painting and drawing in his work; and his use of red underpaint. Catalogue entries treat nineteen groups of paintings and drawings, including many previously unpublished sheets. This beautiful and groundbreaking book reveals the breadth and significance of Barocci's oeuvre
