Looking at pictures by Susan Woodford( Book )

59 editions published between 1983 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 1,166 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 )

34 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and held by 973 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"--
Images of myths in classical antiquity by Susan Woodford( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Myth was the single most popular source for picture making in antiquity. Greek and Roman artists faced a number of challenges in conveying stories in static images. Images of Myths in Classical Antiquity explores the ways that classical artists portrayed a variety of myths. It explains how formulas were devised for certain stories; how these inventions could be adapted, developed and even transferred to other myths; how new forms were created to reflect changes in interpretations; how one myth could be distinguished from another; what links there exist between myths depicted and with daily life and historical propaganda; and the influence of changing tastes, among other issues. Fully illustrated examples are drawn from a wide range of media used by the ancient Greeks and Romans. Striking a balance between serious scholarly research and accessible, nontechnical presentation, this book offers a fresh approach to Greek and Roman mythological illustration

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

"This visual anthology of over 300 designs and patterns is drawn from the heritage of Greek art. These drawings encompass a wide variety of sources such as vase paintings, friezes, emblems on coins and other ornaments. The range of subject matter incorporated into patterns by the Greeks includes fish, fowl, mammals, monsters, plant life and the human figure in a wealth of geometric and organic designs. A short introduction discusses the techniques, materials, and insight with which the Greeks created such lively patterns. Designers, craftsmen, teachers and students alike will find these designs surprising, delightful and a source of inspiration."--Jacket
