Looking at pictures by Susan Woodford( Book )

63 editions published between 1983 and 2020 in 9 languages and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking at pictures can be enjoyable, exciting or moving. Some pictures are easily appreciated at first glance, but others--often the most rewarding--require some explanation before they can be fully understood. This book is intended both to increase pleasure and stimulate thought, and tackles many aspects of looking at paintings. Starting with familiar ideas, Dr Susan Woodford moves on to explore subtler, less obvious concepts. For example, she shows how paintings can be appreciated as patterns on a flat surface and how the illusion of depth can contribute to an emotional effect; how ordinary objects can conceal hidden meanings; and how knowledge of tradition improves our understanding of revolutionary works
An introduction to Greek art by Susan Woodford( Book )

36 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four centuries between the composition of the Homeric epics and the conquests of Alexander the Great witnessed an immensely creative period in Greek art, one full of experimentation and innovation. But time has taken its toll; damaged statues have lost their colour and wall paintings have been totally destroyed. And yet sympathetic study of surviving sculpture and of drawing on vases can give extraordinary insight into and appreciation of these once brilliant works This book, designed originally for students, introduces the reader to Greek sculpture and vase painting in the critical period from the eighth to the fourth centuries BC. The works discussed are generously illustrated and lucidly analysed to give a vivid picture of the splendor of Greek art. The up-dated second edition includes a new chapter examining art in Greek society, a timeline to help relate artistic development to historical events, an explanation of how dates BC are arrived at, a brief overview of Greek temple plans and a further reading list of recent books. This clear, approachable and rigorous introduction makes the beauty of Greek art more readily accessible and comprehensible, balancing description with interpretation and illustration, and is an invaluable tool to help develop insight, appreciation and comprehension."

The authors, Professor Phyllis Bober and Dr Ruth Rubinstein, based their selection on the Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture known in the Renaissance, begun at the Warburg Institute in London as a reference catalogue, but continuously extended thereafter and now transferred into a modern web-based database system accessible on the internet. The authors arranged their illustrative material and their encyclopaedic catalogue thematically, giving full descriptions and history of each antique work, listing Renaissance representations and adaptations, and citing relevant literature. In addition, the myths and legends featured in the classical works are retold briefly in each case to help the reader follow the narrative, particularly in the many sarcophagus reliefs reproduced

Designers, craftsmen, teachers and students alike will find these designs surprising, delightful and a source of inspiration."--Jacket
Corpus vasorum antiquorum( Book )

Greek and Roman art by Susan Woodford( Book )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than 2,000 years the art of Greece and Rome has lain at the heart of western civilization. This book recaptures the excitement of the artists who first created it. It traces the daring innovations of those who, defying traditional wisdom, explored new ideas; it describes the valiant struggles of sculptors and painters to portray - for the first time - both the complexities of the human form and the richness of human emotions. So much has been destroyed by the ravages of time that Greek and Roman art seems to consist only of impressive ruins and broken fragments. Yet the creative achievements of the Greeks and their legacy, as adapted by the Romans, have never lost their power."--Page [2] of cover
