Le sang d'un poète The blood of a poet by Jean Cocteau( Visual )

36 editions published between 1930 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Title 1. Cocteau's first film takes the form of an allegorical fantasy divided into four episodes linked by a commentary, 'trying to picture the poet's inner self', all of which supposedly occur in the fraction of a second that it takes for the falling chimney in the opening sequence to hit the ground (ca. 53 min.) --Title 2. Cocteau's last film: The poet, as an 18th century man, dies, enters space time, is revived, and seeks his identity (ca. 83 min.)
Jean Cocteau's Orphic trilogy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in French and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1. Jean Cocteau turns the Orpheus legend into a story of a poet and his encounter with death and the middle world. 2. An artist is driven mad by the sight of his own blood and a drawing of a mouth that seems to come to life. The combination sends him off on a series of bizarre adventures that strive to explain how artists become obsessed with their own works. 3. In his last film Cocteau portrays an 18th century poet who travels through time on a quest for divine wisdom. In a mysterious wasteland, he meets several symbolic phantoms that bring about his death and resurrection. The film finished the circle of the journey begun in Blood of a Poet, exploring the torturous relationship between the artist and his creations
Lee Miller's war : photographer and correspondent with the Allies in Europe, 1944-45 by Lee Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lee Miller's work for Vogue from 1941-45 sets her apart as a photographer of extraordinary ability, and the quality of her work from the period has long been recognized as outstanding. Its full range is shown here, accompanied by her brilliant despatches." "Miller's words manage to combine immediacy with acute observation, and deep personal involvement with professional detachment. Complementing her natural talent in writing are over one hundred and fifty remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives. With their own quality of surrealist irony, which at times verges on the horrific and at others on the hilarious, they show war-ravaged cities, buildings and landscapes, but above all war-resilient people - soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains and the heroes."--Jacket

Lee Miller's war : beyond D-Day by Lee Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller's work for Vogue from 1941-1945 sets her apart as a photographer and writer of extraordinary ability. The quality of her photography from the period has long been recognized as outstanding, and its full range is shown here, accompanied by her brilliant despatches. Starting with her first report from a field hospital soon after D-Day, the despatches and nearly 160 photographs show war-ravaged cities, buildings and landscapes, but above all they portray the war-resilient people--soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains and the heroes. There is the raw edge of combat portrayed at the siege of St Malo and in the bitterly fought Alsace campaign, and the disbelief and outrage Miller describes on witnessing the victims of Dachau. The war's horror is relieved by the spirit of post-liberation Paris, where she indulged in frivoluous fashions and recorded memorable conversations with Picasso, Cocteau, Eluard, Aragon and Colette. The book ends with Miller's first-on-the-scene report giving a sardonic description of HItler's abandoned house in Munich, and the looting and burning of his alpine fortress at Berchtesgaden, which marked a symbolic end to the war. David E. Scherman, the renowned war photojournalist who shared many of Miller's assignments, contributes a foreword

Köln im März 1945 by Lee Miller( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Fotografin Lee Miller hat im März 1945 Köln fotografiert. Lee Millers Bilder vermitteln so unmittelbare Eindrücke, als würde man jetzt, hier und heute dabei sein. Sie spiegeln Gesichter wider in Momenten, die für diese Menschen einen Wendepunkt in ihrem Leben darstellen. Sie sind erschütternd, traurig, freudig, lebensbejahend, verzweifelt oder trotz einer extrem schwierigen Zeit optimistisch. Egal ob Lee Miller in diesem Weltereignis der Fotografie Menschen fotografiert hat, die gerade aus dem Klingelpütz kommen oder in die Agnes-Kirche gehen. Die meisten dieser Fotografien von Köln sind bislang unveröffentlicht. Die Fotokuratorin Dr. Kerstin Stremmel hat diesen Bestand aus dem Lee-Miller-Archiv in Chiddingly (GB, East Sussex) untersucht: etwa 80 Motive, die das Kölner Stadtgebiet unmittelbar nach der Befreiung durch US-amerikanische Truppen dokumentieren - vom zerstörten Dom über viele einzelne Straßenzüge bis zu befreiten Zwangsarbeitern eben aus dem Klingelpütz

Les films de Man Ray by Man Ray( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Philadelphia in 1890, Man Ray settled in Paris in 1921 to join in with the Dada movement. He was a radically experimental artist of genius who won immense critical acclaim for his photographic work. In the 1920s, Man Ray directed four films which, although they are little known to the general public, made him a major figure in avant-garde cinema. His film-making was as radical as his pictures and his objects. This is a collection of his works including 10 short home movies never before released

Lee Miller in fashion by Becky Conekin( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller was a Vogue cover girl, Man Ray's lover, the first photojournalist at the liberation of Dachau and Buchenwald, and one of the most important female photographers of the 20th century. Combining fine art and urban wit, her photographic technique was learned from the great photographers of her day, among them are Edward Steichen, Man Ray and George Hoyningen-Huene. Becky E. Conekin's Lee Miller in Fashion gives us a wide lens view on Miller's fashion photography. Set against the fast-changing landscapes of New York, Paris, and London, it reveals a neglected chapter in Miller's life: how this incredible woman challenged conventions and broke boundaries in her fashion photography for the leading magazines of the day. Using never-before-seen photographs and archival research, Conekin shows how Miller's fashion photographs were a brilliant combination of sharp wit, high art and modernist edge
