15 editions published between 2007 and 2019 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is every picture worth a thousand words? And what words should they be? "Verbalising the Visual" explores the ever-changing relationship between language, objects, and meanings, and considers how we translate the experience of visual culture into written and spoken words. World-renowned author and cultural commentator Michael Clarke looks at a range of language--formal and informal, academic and colloquial, global and local--and reveals how this language characterizes current art and design discourse. More than 300 pictures illustrate the intriguing examples. Ideal for visual arts students and helpful for anyone interested in writing and talking about art, including everyone in marketing, advertising, and communications, "Verbalising the Visual" is a refreshing, insightful look at words and pictures and the place where they intersect

Monet and the Seine : impressions of a river by Helga Kessler-Aurisch( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his career, French artist Claude Monet (1840-1926) used the Seine as his testing ground for documenting on canvas the transformative effects of light and atmosphere. He produced many ethereal, evocative, and poetic paintings of the meandering river, which remained his favorite subject and also provided solace throughout his life. This beautiful book brings together fifty of Monet's most glorious paintings of the Seine, from the early works focusing on Argenteuil, Le Havre, and Paris, to the works on Lavacourt and Ve;theuil, and culminating with the stunningly beautiful works that make up the acclaimed series Mornings on the Seine, which depicts an intimate stretch of the Seine near Giverny. These paintings not only offer special glimpses into Monet's creative process but also introduce the concept of the series-a concept that would influence the art of future generations. Monet and the Seine features gorgeously reproduced images and engaging essays by four distinguished scholars."
