Marc Riboud in China : forty years of photography by Marc Riboud( Book )

Henri Cartier-Bresson : here and now by Henri Cartier-Bresson( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Cartier-Bresson's work embraced art, politics, revolution, and war. But more powerful than any of these overarching themes was his evident concern for the human individual at every social level. This lavishly illustrated monograph - published to accompany France's first major retrospective since the photographer's death in 2004 - traces Cartier-Bresson's development as a photographer, activist, journalist, and artist. In addition to some of Cartier-Bresson's best-known photographs, included here are many seldom seen or unpublished images and some rarities in color as well as black-and-white. From his earliest photographs in Paris in the 1920s and Africa in the 1930s, Cartier-Bresson's capacity to conjure coherence and harmony out of a chaotic world appears effortless and innate - a deep-centered attitude rather than a merely learned technique. His observations of the effects of poverty and revolution around the world led directly to his pioneering photojournalism and to his co-founding of Magnum Photos. He became renowned for his penetrating portraits of the most prominent figures of his time, becoming, in the words of his biographer Pierre Assouline, 'the eye of the century."--Publisher
Paris between the wars, 1919-1939 : art, life & culture by Vincent Bouvet( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between the Victory parade along the Champs-Elysées in 1919 and the Germans' march through the Arc de Triomphe in 1940, Paris enjoyed a twenty-year period of cultural and intellectual expansion, receptive to the avant-garde while loyal to the French tradition of classicism. During this between-the-wars period, France remained a major economic, military, and colonial power. Philosophy, art, and fashion radiated from Paris. Artists and intellectuals came from every part of the world to the City of Light to find inspiration. Paris sparkled in the années folles that followed the euphoria of victory in World War I."--Publisher's website

The spirit of the Bauhaus by Raphaèle Billé( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Architects, sculptors, painters, we all must return to the crafts!' declared architect Walter Gropius in his Bauhaus manifesto. Founded in 1919 as an art school in Weimar, the Bauhaus established itself as a major influence on twentieth- century art and design. Bauhaus students were taught by some of the most celebrated artists of the time, including Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, and Wassily Kandinsky. Having moved to Berlin in 1932 under architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, it was forced to close for good by the Gestapo in 1933. Uncovering the sources of inspiration that brought the Bauhaus into existence, from medieval cathedrals of Europe and Hokusai prints to William Morris and Arts and Crafts, The Spirit of the Bauhaus explores workshops and courses in detail, illustrating the extraordinary wealth of experimentation in every medium: ceramics, wood and metalwork, textiles, glass- painting, sculpture, mural, printing and binding, theater, architecture, and photography. This essential and accessible guide to the Bauhaus, published in time for the 100th anniversary of the school in 2019, celebrates a school that continues to be recognized as the most durable and influential source of modern ideas about art, design, and craft."--Publisher's description

Fauna : the art of jewelry by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The animal kingdom has long been a source of inspiration for jewelers since the days of antiquity. Chosen for their symbolism, their beauty or their personality, a whole menagerie of creatures has been depicted in gemstones and precious metals, ranging from fantastical dragons, griffins and sphinxes, to wild beasts such as boars and big cats, to the delicate forms of birds, fish and even insects. The 130 pieces in this book have been specially selected from the magnificent jewelry collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and include necklaces and earrings, bracelets and brooches by legendary names such as Boucheron, Falize and Lalique. They stretch from the Renaissance revival of the 19th century to the elegant lines of Art Nouveau and beyond, through to the playful naivety of modernist designs by Jean Lurçat and Line Vautrin."--Dust jacket flap

Hokusai : a life in drawing by Henri-Alexis Baatsch( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katsushika Hokusai (1760 - 1849) was the most prolific and diverse artist of Japan's Edo period, with a body of work reputed to include more than 30,000 drawings, paintings and prints. His works range from portraits of popular actors and courtesans to landscapes and seascapes and from clearly observed scenes of everyday life to erotic prints. While his prints had a huge influence on the course of Western art, it is equally true that he himself was influenced by European painting. This is a beautifully illustrated introduction to this master artist, who combined great technical prowess with remarkable imagination and a passion for vivid detail
