Blasting the future! : vorticism in Britain 1910-1920( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The time is ripe for a fundamental reassessment of the impact that Futurism had on British culture and of Vorticism - the specifically British avant-garde movement inspired by the founder of the Italian Futurist movement, Filippo Tommasao Marinetti. This text, which accompanies an exhibition at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, combines novel material and original research to provide a coherent overview of Futurism and Vorticism, before, during and after World War I. The exhibition is the first major showing by the movement since 1974 and the text illustrates works in a wide range of media by England's only Futurist, C.R.W. Nevinson, and by the core of artists associated with Vorticism: Wyndham Lewis; Edward Wadsworth; Frederick Etchells; William Roberts; Henri Gaudier-Brzeska; Jacob Epstein; and Jacob Kramer. The influence exerted on these artists by the Italian Futurists Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini and the mercurial impresario of Futurism, Marinetti, is explored fully. The works illustrated are from a range of prominent public and private collections, a number having never previously been exhibited

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of his prints were published by William Holland, a man of literary tastes who wrote the clever dialogues on many of the prints; some of Newton's most fascinating prints are those of Holland and fellow prisoners in Newgate where Holland was imprisoned for his radical activities in 1793-4. The book contains a checklist of three hundred single sheet prints by Newton; sixty are illustrated in colour, together with four of his watercolours

Mind-forg'd manacles : William Blake and slavery by David Bindman( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Blake (1757-1827) was unusually aware of the horrors of slavery, which he knew about in detail from a book he illustrated. But slavery was to him not only a physical system but a mental state of restricted perception that he called 'mind-forg'd manacles'. Mental enslavement and its opposite, freedom, gave rise to his most dramatic and complex text and images. With over 60 vivid reproductions from Blake's illuminated books, watercolours and engravings in the British Museum, this volumes includes an essay by the curator, leading Blake scholar David Bindman on the theme of slavery in Blake's visual imagery, and another by novelist and literary critic Darryl Pinckney on Olaudah Equiano, an African former slave who campaigned for the abolition of slavery in Blake's time. This book commemorates both the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in Britain, and the 250th anniversary of Blake's birth."--Jacket
Jewish art treasures from Prague : the State Jewish Museum in Prague and its collections : a catalogue by Státní židovské muzeum (Czech Republic)( Book )

8 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1980 exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, for which this is the catalogue, comprises 300 of the finest examples drawn from the State Jewish Museum, Prague which houses the most important collections of Judaica in the world. It is the only showing of this extensive exhibition in the West. The Jewish ritual art included in it spans the period from the late Renaissance to the early twentieth century and includes synagogue textiles, historic and decorative work in silver and other metals, paintings depicting the elaborate ritual of the late eighteenth-century Prague Burial Brotherhood, glass and ceramics. From the twentieth century come drawings and paintings by adult artists and by some of the thousands of children who were imprisoned in the Terezín concentration camp and who died as victims of the holocaust. Exhibition and catalogue offer a glimpse of the rich heritage of Jewish life in Central Europe since the Middle Ages, and a modest memorial to the Jewish community in Bohemia and Moravia who were virtually exterminated by the Nazis."--Publisher's description
