Harlequin unmasked : the commedia dell'arte and porcelain sculpture by Meredith Chilton( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The commedia dell'arte began in Italy as irreverent, improvised street theatre and is best known for its exuberant characters - Harlequin, Pantalone, Pulcinella, Scaramouche, and Columbine, among others. Since the sixteenth century, these personalities have inspired paintings, engravings, and porcelain sculptures. This book features works from important collections - in particular, the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, which houses one of the finest collections of commedia dell'arte porcelain sculpture in the world. Encompassing theatre, court culture, masquerades, and the decorative arts, the book offers original perspectives on porcelain commedia figures while also making an important contribution to the study of the commedia dell'arte." "The volume focuses on nearly 150 porcelain sculptures, representing more than twenty European ceramic manufacturers. The authors investigate the history of the commedia dell'arte's transformation into sculpture: Why were the figures made? Why do they appear as they do? What inspired their gestures and costumes? How did street theatre themes become integrated into court life and entertainment? Examining these porcelain figures in greater breadth and detail than any publication ever has done before, this book is essential for those interested in theatre, painting, costume, and the decorative arts."--Jacket

Kathy Venter : life by Kathy Venter( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a fabulously illustrated monograph exploring the work of acclaimed contemporary ceramics artist Kathy Venter Born in South Africa and now living and working in Canada, Kathy Venter is a celebrated ceramic artist internationally recognized for her life-size figurative sculptures. The artist's dialogues with time, with femininity, with community, and with intercultural understanding capture the continuity of the human condition. Unlike many sculptors who use terracotta as a preparatory tool, Venter uses it as a primary medium and has developed a unique hand-building method to sculpt without the use of moulds or armatures. This monograph features dozens of new and recent works and is the first publication dedicated to Venter's artistic practice. This publication marks the museum's commitment to the study of contemporary art."--Wheelers.co.nz

True Nordic : how Scandinavia influenced design in Canada( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"True Nordic" presents a comprehensive look at more than nine decades of Nordic and Scandinavian aesthetic influence in Canadian craft, design and industrial production. The book offers a broad historical survey of Canadian-made ceramics, furniture, textiles and metalware inspired by the aesthetics of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Estonia. The design culture and movements of the Nordic countries have been the most significant in the development of Canadian design sensibility since 1920. Scandinavian design resonated with Canadians and was viewed as appropriate for the realities of domesticity and modernizing life. Praised for its material sensitivity and regarded as both modern and humble, progressive but quiet, Scandinavian and Nordic design resonated with Canada's ongoing efforts to find a fitting stylistic and culturally appropriate language. "True Nordic" includes essays from George Baird, Rachel Gotlieb, Mark Kingwell and Michael Prokopow
