Among its holdings are 'The Adoration of the Magi' and 'The Garden of Earthly Delights' triptychs, as well as the original of 'The Haywain', making it the "home of Bosch" and the perfect institution to hold a major exhibition marking the quincentenary of the artist's death. This magnificent, richly illustrated book reproduces these masterpieces and other recently cleaned and restored paintings, and reveals hitherto unknown facets of Bosch's art."--Inside flap

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Photography is a landmark publication that encompasses the history, art, and science of photography in a single volume. At a time when information is instantly accessible on the Internet but is often unreliable or uncited, this ambitious project both reasserts the veracity, reliability, and accuracy of scholarly research in reference publishing and offers an immersive, usable, beautifully designed reading experience. Compiled under the editorial guidance of curator, writer, and art historian Nathalie Herschdorfer, and in consultation with an international panel of 150 experts, this volume is based on entirely new scholarship by seventy-seven researchers from sixteen countries. Over 1,200 concise yet fully detailed entries describe all aspects of the subject, including photographers, images, agencies, genres, movements, exhibitions, publications, collectors, techniques, and processes. Entries from Ansel Adams, Diane Arbus, and amateur photographers to Emile Zola, Piet Zwart, and the zoom lens are enriched by 300 images showing key works, artist portraits, exhibitions, installations, and publications."--Publisher information

Found photography by Anne-Marie Garat( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A side effect of the rise of photography as a popular art form has been the accumulation of a huge body of images whose photographers and subjects remain unknown. These include fascinating photographs--some almost masterpieces--that could easily have been lost if it hadn't been for their chance rediscovery in libraries, archives, homes, and institutions. This book presents a selection of these mysterious images that provides an alternative history of the medium. They portray a striking range of people, animals, and objects, captured in scenes that can be witty, touching, sinister, or surreal
Peter Beard by Peter H Beard( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer, collector, diarist, and writer of books Peter Beard has fashioned his life into a work of art; the illustrated diaries he kept from a young age evolved into a serious career as an artist and earned him a central position in the international art world. He was painted by Francis Bacon, painted on by Salvador Dalí, and made diaries with Andy Warhol; he toured with Truman Capote and the Rolling Stones, created books with Jacqueline Onassis and Mick Jagger, all of whom are brought to life, literally and figuratively, in his work. As a fashion photographer, he took Vogue stars like Veruschka to Africa and brought new ones - most notably Iman - back to the U.S. with him. After spending time in Kenya and befriending the author Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen) in the early 1960s, Beard bought a piece of land near hers. He witnessed the dawn of Kenya’s population explosion, which challenged finite resources and stressed animal populations - including the starving elephants of Tsavo, dying by the tens of thousands in a wasteland of eaten trees. So he documented what he saw - with diaries, photographs, and collages. He went against the wind in publishing unique and sometimes shocking books of these works. The corpses were laid bare; the facts were carefully written down, sometimes in type, often by hand, occasionally with blood. Peter Beard’s most important collages are included, along with hundreds of smaller-scale works and diaries, magnified to show every detail - from Beard’s meticulous handwriting and old-masters-inspired drawings to stones and bones and bits of animals pasted to the page

The Celts by Aedeen Cremin( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last significant tribal culture in Europe, the Celts are today associated with a particularly rich body of symbolism and mystery. Rituals, omens and signs were central to their religious beliefs, and these were expressed in a variety of beautiful designs and symbols found in Celtic stonework, metalwork and manuscripts. Especially relevant to contemporary spiritual curiosity, the major symbols of the Celts are here explained and beautifully illustrated
