Islamicate celestial globes, their history, construction, and use by Emilie Savage-Smith( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The globe presently in the national Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Institution, which is a fine example of a seventeenth-century Mughal Indian globe, was selected for detailed analysis and serves as the focus for this monograph. The first part of the study compares this particular globe with other known Islamicate globes and places the development of such globes within the historical perspective of the earlier Greco-Roman world from which it drew many of its tradition. An historical survey is given of all references and artifacts from the Greco-Roman and Islamic world that can have bearing on our knowledge of the design, construction, and use of such globes. The nature and general characteristics of three basic types of Islamicate celestial globes, and their probably uses as well as methods of construction are the subjects of the second chapter of the study. Photographs of selected Islamicate globes are the subjects of the second chapter of the study. Photographs of selected Islamicate globes from the thirteenth to the nineteenth centuries, as well as line drawings based on written descriptions, accompany the historical an analytical discussion. The fourth chapter on iconography analyses the constellation figures on the Smithsosonian globe from the perspective of an art historian. This chapter was contributed by Andrea P.A. Belloli. The second major part of the study presents a discussion of the star names engraved on the Mughal globe, tracing the origins of the term sin Greek mythology or early Bedouin constellation outlines. The discussion of each constellation is accompanied by a photograph of the constellation as depicted on the Smithsonian globe. An account of lunar mansions is included as background to early Bedouin asterisms, which greatly affected later Islamicate star names and eventually "modern" western star names. The sixth section presents and extensive descriptive catalogue of the 126 Islamicate celestial globes know to scholars prior to 1982. The reference sin the other sections to particular globes are keyed to the entry numbers in this catalog. Following the catalog are tables comparing the features of the globes and transcriptions of the signature inscriptions. Six entries were added to the catalog while the study was in press

Art studio America : contemporary artist spaces by Hossein Amirsadeghi( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrasting intimate visits to artist's studios, intended to evoke the particular elements of their own interior landscapes, with explorations of the USA's sweeping landscapes of light and form, which have inspired artists since the Luminists and the landscape specialists of the Hudson River School, 'Art Studio America' provides a privileged look at the dreams, ideas and thoughts of 115 artists who are active today. While the world may know their work well, they have rarely, if ever, allowed their personal landscapes to be traversed in such an intimate manner and against the backdrop, both literal and figurative, of their country's larger environment. Some are immigrants, while others chart their professional journey's through their work amid the vagaries of the American art market. From established figures to up-and-coming artists, 'Art Studio America' provides a privileged glimpse into the workings of one of the world's largest artistic communities

Titian : nymph and shepherd by Katya Berger Andreadakis( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Titian: Nymph and Shepherd is presented as a series of stimulating letters exchanged between the internationally renowned author and art critic John Berger and his daughter, Katya." "This correspondence is the extraordinary vehicle for a series of insights into the everyday life and the art of the great Venetian master, following an uncanny incident at the great exhibition of his work staged in Venice in 1990." "While attending the exhibition Katya meets an old man, who she becomes convinced can only be the ghost of the great painter. Her "spiritual" visitor engages her in conversation about the minute particularities of painting some of the pictures there. She shares this experience with her father in a letter. He accepts the encounter at face value and discusses the historical background to the old man's remarks, seeking answers to a series of evidential questions about his daughter's encounter. From then on, the three of them, the old painter, the daughter, and the father discuss painting, bodies, animals, Greece, being a woman today, the constant enigma of existence, and daily life." "Titian: Nymph and Shepherd is richly illustrated with the famous Titian masterpieces shown at the exhibition, thus enabling readers to enter the visual adventure and judge for themselves what the visitor from four centuries ago has to say to us today."--Jacket

London burning : portraits from a creative city by Hossein Amirsadeghi( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new sizzle is in the air across London’s creative sectors. Having successfully surveyed the lives and workplaces of America’s and Britain’s contemporary visual artists in Sanctuary: Britain’s Artists and their Studios (2012) followed by Art Studio America: Contemporary Artist Spaces (2013), TransGlobe Publishing, in collaboration with Thames & Hudson, has embarked on a challenging new venture: London Burning: Portraits from a Creative City. Having invented the Swinging ’60s, punk rock in the ’70s and Cool Britannia in the ’90s, London in the 2000s is firing up the engine of renewal yet again. The intention behind London Burning is to explore Britain’s capital as today’s international HQ for creativity and innovation. Commentators who have clocked the city’s sparking of change across architecture, cinema and theatre, literature, dance, fashion, media and music, technology, design, and the visual and culinary arts have barely scratched the surface. They have neglected to address the tribal dynamics that have always underpinned London’s creative scene; they have also avoided the key questions whose answers sum up the city’s unique drive. In a time of extreme economic challenges, why and how has London become a creative universe running off its own special brand of fuel? How does it continue to regenerate, to confound the naysayers who pop up every decade or so foretelling its decline? And where is it all heading, given the certain social, political and structural tectonic shifts looming ahead? Two-thousand-year-old London has survived barbarians at its gates, Norman invaders up to no good, civil war, great fires and plagues, Nazi bombers and haphazard civic planning. The capital today is a cultural Molotov cocktail fuelled by hedonism, money, power and ethnic combustibility. The city, openly resented by many others throughout the UK, commands greater wealth than the rest of the country taken together. Quite a backdrop to London Burning’s hundred probing interviews and profiles, which introduce creative personalities young and old, highbrow and populist, Establishment figures and newbies, set against the variegated scenes they inhabit. The book draws on a broad spectrum of people both in the public eye and behind the scenes, among them Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate; sculptor Antony Gormley; Peter Ackroyd, London’s pre-eminent living chronicler; Jude Kelly, Artistic Director of the Southbank Centre; Alistair Spalding, Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells; and Gilbert & George, London’s quintessential artistic personalities. Other profilees include Alan Yentob, Creative Director of the BBC; Guy Ritchie, London’s own director-mensch; skyline-redefiner David Chipperfield; and Mathew Slotover, the founder of Frieze Art Fair. Groundbreaking chefs Fergus Henderson, Ruthie Rogers and Mark Hix; Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman; critic Jackie Wullschlager; multimedia Reith Lecturer Grayson Perry; conceptual guru Hans Ulrich Obrist; writer-ceramist nonpareil Edmund de Waal ... the list goes on. Add to that such young sparks as musician Tinie Tempah, actress Gemma Arterton, fashion designer Roksanda Illinic and performance artist Eddie Peake, to name but a few, and you can start to see why London comes first in today’s creative sweepstakes. Each four-, six- or eight-page profile is introduced by a unique portrait, followed by a lively conversational investigation into the soul and psyche of the profilee with a close focus on their particular brand of London-mania: their favoured haunts and neighbourhoods, their likes and dislikes, and, most importantly, the quirkiness that helps to define both output and character. As an added bonus, London Burning evokes the city through the seasons, investigating its ever-spinning creative solar system through nearly seven hundred specially commissioned photographs. The urban scene is thus brought alive through the eyes, ears and even the noses of residents at its creative core, with hoteliers, rappers, ballerinas, restaurateurs and fashionistas enlivening the mix. Unlocking secret passions and embracing a range of lifestyles from the most outrageous to the most parochial, London Burning celebrates the feast of creativity being cooked by the people making tomorrow’s news.--TransGlobe

Mexico : a culinary quest by Hossein Amirsadeghi( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicling a journey across some of the country's most picturesque states in more than 100 entertaining, informative profiles, Mexico: A Culinary Quest captures the essence and spirit of Mexican food history as well as a wide range of contemporary cooking styles. The lively texts are accompanied by more than 1000 specially commissioned photographs celebrating not only the cuisine but also the rich culture of which it is part. While food is at its heart, the lure of Mexico: A Culinary Quest is not just the featured personalities but their tables, menus, local specialties, kitchens, and the country's magnificent settings and landscape. From Yucatán to Baja California, Michoacán to Tabasco, Nueva León to Chiapas, Mexico: A Culinary Quest traces long-standing cultural traditions through food, placing history at the center of the Mexican people's culinary journey across time. The profiles therefore represent a cross-section of both walks of life and social classes: nuns; grandes dames; campesinos; barrio residents; creatives in the arts, architecture, music, film, and media; businesspeople-and, of course, great chefs. From famous watering holes to local holes in the wall, Mexico: A Culinary Quest is a voyage in search of the soul of Mexico through the medium of food
