The Gothic revival : an essay in the history of taste by Kenneth Clark( Book )

158 editions published between 1928 and 1995 in 5 languages and held by 2,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1928 and written while the author was still at Oxford, this book has become a classic. It remains the best possible introduction to the most widespread and influential architectural and decorative arts movement England ever produced." "Though Gothic Revival buildings had changed the face of both town and country, they were hardly appreciated in the first half of this century. Architectural historians neglected them because so few were seen as great works of art; others averted their gaze, or laughed. That taste later changed was in many ways due to this book. Kenneth Clark's exploration of the changes in ideals and sensibility that inspired the Revival made it possible to see again with the eyes of those for whom the buildings had been designed, and whose imaginations they had fired"--

Feminine beauty by Kenneth Clark( Book )

19 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the second millennium BC feminine beauty has inspired great art. In a superb and highly informative essay Kenneth Clark demonstrates that while different periods and cultures in the West have held different ideals of the female form, beauty has a timelessness which transcends fashion and environment, and its image can be found in any age. It can be as diverse as a medieval Madonna and a voluptuous nude of the Baroque, an enchantment by Fragonard and the characteristic melancholy of Virginia Woolf or Greta Garbo. Yet, in citing the figures of antiquity-Nefertiti, the Venus of Milo and of modern times, Lord Clark reveals the constancy of beauty over four thousand years. He discusses chronologically, with visual references, the plates he has selected to illustrate his subject, and his perceptive personal commentary is a reminder that he is not only one of Britain's leading art historians but also that he has a rare capacity for communicating his scholarship. -- from dust jacket
