The glory of Venice : art in the eighteenth century by Royal Academy of Arts (Great Britain)( Book )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Venice, home of Tiepolo, Canaletto, Piranesi, Piazzetta, and Guardi, was the most artistic city of eighteenth-century Italy. This beautiful book examines the whole range of the arts in Venice during this period, including paintings, pastels and gouaches, drawings and watercolours, prints and illustrated books and sculpture. The book begins with an introduction by Andrew Robison, and a general introduction to Venetian art by Michael Levey. Essays by other eminent authorities then discuss the international taste for Venetian art and major aspects of the art of the period. The essays are followed by a catalogue that discusses and reproduces many of the finest works of the time along with biographies and critical discussions of the artists. The selection of works emphasises the beauty, quality, distinctiveness, variety, balance, and unity of Venetian art. It includes altarpieces by Tiepolo, Piazzetta, and others that demonstrate the importance of profoundly serious and grand religious art; it presents the finest examples of history painting and allegory, views and landscapes, architectural fantasies, decorative paintings, and portraits; and it offers a large selection of particularly fine graphic art, for many of the greatest painters - Marco Ricci, Piazzetta, Canaletto, and Tiepolo - also devoted themselves to printmaking, book illustration, and designs for stage sets and the decorative arts, and often found greater freedom for their fantasy in such works

"There are full-color comparative illustrations, a chronology, and a detailed description of each work. The most prominent scholars in the field discuss the development of Van Dyck's work, making this the most authoritative volume to be published on the artist."--Jacket
The unknown Monet : pastels and drawings by James A Ganz( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claude Monet (1840-1926) is one of the best-known and most beloved painters in the history of art, with myriad publications and exhibitions devoted to his oeuvre. And yet there remains a previously undiscovered aspect of his career: his surprisingly significant role as a draftsman. This book is the first to focus on Monet's pastels, drawings, and sketchbooks, offering a new interpretation of the artist's life and work." "Citing recently discovered, unpublished documents that overturn the accepted image of the artist, The Unknown Monet reveals an extensive group of graphic works created over the course of the artist's career, many of which are unknown to the general public and to scholars: beautiful pastels, stunning black-chalk drawings, and fascinating sketchbooks, which include pencil studies that relate to many of his paintings. The book also shows how Monet exploited the print media to promote his art." "The most important publication on Monet to appear in a generation, this volume is essential to anyone interested in his work, Impressionism, and nineteenth-century French culture."--Jacket
Matisse, his art and his textiles : the fabric of dreams by Henri Matisse( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Textiles were the key to Matisse's visual imagination. His ancestors had been weavers for generations: the textures and vibrancy of cloth were in his blood. Although Matisse was to outgrow every other influence, textiles retained their power to inspire his imagination throughout his life. His studio in Nice was a treasure house of exotic Persian carpets, delicate Arab embroideries, richly hued African wall hangings, curtains, costumes, patterned screens and backcloths. This sumptuously illustrated book, which includes over 100 works by Matisse together with numerous colourful fabrics, is the catalogue of a groundbreaking exhibition at the Musée Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambrésis; the Royal Academy of Arts, London; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Matisse's relationship with the textiles that surrounded him from his earliest days is revealed here for the first time. Charting how the fabrics he painted from became the very fabric of his paintings, the authors examine the ways in which Matisse used what he called his "working library" of textiles to furnish, order and compose some of the twentieth century's most pioneering works of art
