Tim Burton by Aurélien Ferenczi( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tim Burton (USA, b. 1958) is the youngest of Hollywood's most successful directors. He has the knack of making films with a very broad appeal, taking the silliness out of the representation of children, while remaining in touch with the child within himself and his audiences. Burton emerged as a director and storyteller after working as an animator for Disney. His meeting with Johnny Depp enabled him to give physical form to the heroes of his imaginary worlds, where fear is mixed with laughter, strange is normal and those who are not normal, such as "Edward Scissorhands" (1990), must be preserved. After "Beetlejuice" (1988) and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (2005), the resolutely boyish Burton, now in his fifties, presents his version of "Alice in Wonderland" (2010)."--Book cover
Orson Welles at work by Jean-Pierre Berthomé( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Orson Welles at Work is an in-depth, behind-the-camera survey of the work of one of the world's most acclaimed cinematic visionaries. Under-appreciated in his lifetime, Orson Welles (1915-1985) was an exceptional filmmaker whose legend has been fuelled by myriad myths and stories. Having gained unrivalled access to European and American archives in order to provide an uncommonly detailed account of the man and his diverse projects, authors Jean-Pierre Berthome and Francois Thomas sort the facts from the fiction in this new study." "Providing a fresh and insightful view of the director and his work, this book examines the entirety of Welles's career, from his theatrical beginnings to his very last years, and offers analyses of all his creative works, including the feature films, short films, unfinished works and his programmes for television. In addition the book recounts the various stages of each of the twelve completed feature films (from conception and pre-production, through filming and editing, to critical reception and beyond), including the celebrated Citizen Kane (1941), The Magnificent Ambersons (1942) and Touch of Evil (1957-8). Discussion of all the works is supported by over 400 illustrations of on-set photographs, screenplays and scripts, contracts, sketches, storyboards, models, production reports, memos and correspondence, some of which has been uncovered by the authors' latest research."--Jacket
No one : a novel by Gwenaëlle Aubry( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No One is the portrait of a man without a true self, a one-time distinguished lawyer and member of the Paris bar whose disabling bipolar disorder turns him into a drifter and frequent visitor to mental institutions. Moving between the voices of daughter and father, this fictional memoir in dictionary form investigates the many men behind the masks, and a unified portrait evolves. Letter by letter, Gwanaëlle Aubry gives shape and meaning to the father who had long disappeared from her view. The whole is a beautifully written, vivid exploration of mental illness and what it can reveal more generally about human experience."--Page 4 of cover
Echoes of Narcissus( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Greek mythology the beautiful Narcissus glimpsed his own reflection in the waters of a spring and fell in love. But his was an impossible passion and, filled with despair, he pined away. Over the years the myth has inspired painters, writers, and film directors, as well as philosophers and psychoanalysts. The tragic story of Narcissus, in love with himself, and of Echo, the nymph in love with him, lies at the heart of this collection of essays, selected from the fields of humanities and social sciences, exploring the origins of the myth and some of its many cultural manifestations and meanings relating to the self and the self's relationship to the other. Through their discussion of the myth and its ramifications, the contributors to this volume broaden our understanding of one of the fundamental myths of Western culture."--BOOK JACKET
Matisse and the Fauves by Heinz Widauer( Book )

With vibrant colours and a pastose application of paint, a group of twelve young artists caused a major controversy at the 1905 third autumn salon in Paris. The critic Louis Vauxcelles labelled them "beasts". Nowadays, the term Fauves stands for a style that was short but highly influential in twentieth-century art. This catalogue highlights important aspects from the influence of van Gogh, Cézanne and Gauguin as artistic trailblazers to the later effects of the Fauves with a special focus on the artist Henri Matisse (1869-1954).

An introduction to Aristotle's metaphysics of time : historical research into the mythological and astronomical conceptions that preceded Aristotle's philosophy by Régis Laurent( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of Greek time before Aristotle's philosophy starts with a commentary on his first text, the Protrepticus. We shall see two distinct forms of time emerge: one initiatory, circular and Platonic in inspiration, the other its diametrical opposite, advanced by Aristotle. We shall explore this dichotomy through a return to poetic conceptions. The Tragedians will give us an initial outline of the notion of time in the Greek world (Fate); we shall then turn to Homer in order to better grasp the complex relations between time and the religious sphere (the Hero); the work of the great theologian Hesiod will confirm this initiatory vision, later set out in remarkable fashion by Nietzsche (Myths); we shall then dive deep into Pythagoreanism to complete our account (Mysteries). Having understood this current of thought, powerfully influenced by the Iranian theogony, we shall be able to discern its clear differences from the so-called "Ionian" current, and thus to move away from Plato (Ideology). Lastly, we shall return to the early Ionian thinkers Thales and Anaximander to analyse whether this really was the vision of the world that Aristotle adopted in developing the first model of time (Science). In the second volume we shall see the return of the thought of the theologoi within the Aristotelian corpus itself, and will question our distinction between the being and existence of time
Looking at mindfulness : twenty-five paintings to change the way you live by Christophe André( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Looking at Mindfulness collects classic and esoteric paintings, from Rembrandt to Hopper to Magritte, and offers a lucid commentary on the inner workings of each. André describes the dynamic on the canvas, and turns to the viewer's own reactions, exploring the connection between what we see and what we feel. Moving beyond the art on the page, André teaches us what it means to consider our surroundings, our daily interactions and obligations, and their effect on our inner well-being. The paintings are a visual and tangible first step to understanding mindfulness and the benefits of living in the moment. In practicing mindfulness, within ourselves and out in the world, each of us can make immediate, meaningful, and permanent changes in our well-being and the well-being of others" --
