As a wonderfully talented designer and artistic entrepreneur, Morris created a style that still lives; as a contradictory political figure - at once a radical and a traditionalist - he was a founding father of British Socialism in the era of Marx and Engels; as a poet and storyteller, he attained a huge contemporary reputation, producing several best-sellers; and as the husband of the Pre-Raphaelite icon Jane Morris (whose love affair with Dante Gabriel Rossetti caused a stir and led to many famous paintings), he was the subject of personal torments as profound as his creative ones. In this biography, Fiona MacCarthy brings all the strands together, from the dreamy boy in a London suburb spinning medieval fantasies to the great bearded patriarch dividing his time between the design and production of beautiful fabrics, the translation of Icelandic epics, and the promotion of Socialism on street corners. Her understanding of his work as an artist-craftsman is profound, yet she is equally illuminating about the strange mixture of nostalgia and yearning for change that shaped his politics. At the same time, she is prepared to deal frankly and in detail with his often painful personal life+-+4049266205324137114ocn051173352book20020.25MacCarthy, FionaByron : life and legendHistoryBiographyWith this book, Fiona MacCarthy has produced the most important work on Byron in nearly half a century. Granted unprecedented access to many documents and artifacts unexamined by previous scholars, MacCarthy brings a fresh, engaging sensibility to a full appreciation of the poet's life and art. Byron: life and legend explores heretofore unrevealed aspects of Byron's complex creative existence, reassessing his poetry, reinterpreting his incomparable letters, and reconsidering the voluminous record left by the poet's contemporaries: his friends and family, his critics and supporters. MacCarthy's scope is comprehensive, giving due weight to each aspect of her subject's genius and covering the full range of his life, retracing his journeys through Italy, Turkey, and Greece and culminating in his heroic voyage to Missolonghi, where he died at the tragically early age of thirty-six. After his death, a pervasive Byronism swept Europe presented here is the fascinating evolution of his posthumous reputation and its influence on literature, architecture, painting, music, manners, sex and psyche. Full of energy and detail, subtlety and glamour, this new study reestablishes Byron as a charismatic figure in the forefront of European art+-+947136928579414ocn758383305book20110.35MacCarthy, FionaThe last Pre-Raphaelite : Edward Burne-Jones and the Victorian imaginationBiographyFrom the prize-winning author of William Morris comes a new biography of Edward Burne-Jones, the greatest British artist of the second half of the nineteenth century. The angels on our Christmas cards, the stained glass in our churches, the great paintings in our galleries - Edward Burne-Jones's work is all around us. The most admired British artist of his generation, he was a leading figure with Oscar Wilde in the aesthetic movement of the 1880s, inventing what became a widespread 'Burne-Jones look'. The bridge between Victorian and modern art, he influenced not just his immediate circle but artists such as Klimt and Picasso. In this gripping book Fiona MacCarthy explores and re-evaluates his art and life - his battle against vicious public hostility, the romantic susceptibility to female beauty that would inspire his art and ruin his marriage, his ill health and depressive sensibility, the devastating rift with his great friend and collaborator William Morris as their views on art and politics diverged. With new research and fresh historical perspective, The Last Pre-Raphaelite tells the extraordinary, dramatic story of Burne-Jones as an artist, a key figure in Victorian society and a peculiarly captivating man+-+96137762053245459ocn037950220book19970.50Spencer, StanleyStanley Spencer : an English visionBiographyExhibition catalogs"Stanley Spencer, a central figure in the current revival of European figurative painting, is among the most important English painters of the twentieth century. In this book, Fiona MacCarthy investigates Spencer's life, sets his work in its cultural context, and emphasises the links between his life and his paintings. With the extensive commentary - edited from Spencer's own writings - on each of the stunning reproductions of Spencer's paintings, this volume provides a comprehensive account of a profoundly original artist and his work."--BOOK JACKET+-+728825558542611ocn007394115book19810.66MacCarthy, FionaThe simple life : C.R. Ashbee in the CotswoldsHistoryIn the spring of 1902, when the back-to-the-land movement was at its height, an exodus began to Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds. East End London workmen - jewellers, silversmiths, enamellers, cavers, modellers, blacksmiths, cabinet-makers, book-binders and printers - fled from the rushed and crowded life of the big city to a rural idyll of craftsmanship and husbandry which was, at the time, all good socialists' dream. This extraordinary idealistic movement was to have a lasting impact not only on the lives of the 150 London immigrants and their leader, the architect, Charles Robert Ashbee, b+-+65300762053244082ocn018382883book19890.33MacCarthy, FionaEric Gill : a lover's quest for art and GodBiography3646ocn000363735book19720.59MacCarthy, FionaAll things bright and beautiful; design in Britain, 1830 to today35211ocn020013396book19890.35MacCarthy, FionaEric GillBiography+-+87589662053242915ocn008928164book19820.70MacCarthy, FionaBritish design since 1880 : a visual historyHistory2814ocn070671822book20060.25MacCarthy, FionaLast curtsey : the end of the debutantesHistory+-+84037762052546ocn005199040book19790.70MacCarthy, FionaA history of British design, 1830-19701447ocn017549589book19860.79MacCarthy, FionaEye for industry : royal designers for industry, 1936-1986HistoryExhibition catalogs893ocn755099100book20080.13MacCarthy, FionaEdward Burne-JonesBiography+-+9613776205324833ocn750920598book20110.63Curtin, GemmaKenneth Grange : making Britain modern+-+1902682546381ocn012458637book19830.24The Omega workshops 1913-1919 : decorative arts of Bloomsbury : Crafts Council Gallery : 18 January-18 March 1984 : a Crafts Council exhibitionExhibition catalogs371ocn010546025book19830.86The Omega Workshops 1913-19 : decorative arts of BloomsburyBiographyExhibition catalogs202ocn039930683book19960.86MacCarthy, FionaTelling the tale of Topsy : William Morris's biographers : the 1993 Kelmscott lectureCriticism, interpretation, etcBiography152ocn004128735book19660.79MacCarthy, FionaWork for married women102ocn045673065book20000.47Kindersley, DavidAbcDavid Kindersley : a life of lettersCriticism, interpretation, etcExhibition catalogs71ocn037256079book19960.92MacCarthy, FionaTelling the tale of Topsy : William Morris's biographersCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+9471369285+-+9471369285Fri Mar 21 15:56:42 EDT 2014batch18481
