Dada: art and anti-art by Hans Richter( Book )

29 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in English and German and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where and how Dada began is almost as difficult to determine as Homer's birthplace", writes Hans Richter, the artist and film-maker closely associated with this radical and transforming movement from its earliest days. Here he records and traces Dada's history, from its inception in about 1916 in wartime Zurich, to its collapse in Paris in 1922 when many of its members were to join the Surrealist movement, down to the present day when its spirit re-emerged first in the 1960s with, for example, Pop Art.This absorbing eye witness narrative is greatly enlivened by extensive use of Dada documents, illustrations and a variety of texts by fellow Dadaists. It is a unique document of the movement, whether in Zurich, Berlin, Hanover, Paris or New York. The complex relationships and contributions of, among others, Hugo Ball, Tristan Tzara, Picabia, Arp, Schwitters, Hausmann, Duchamp, Ernst and Man Ray, are vividly brought to life

Van Eyck : and the founders of early Netherlandish painting by Otto Pächt( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, the great medieval scholar Otto Pacht is concerned with one of the key problems in the history of western art: the comet-like appearance of a new kind of painting in Northern Europe at the end of the 14th century and the first half of the 15th century. The leading artists of this phenomenon were the Master of Flemalle and the Brothers Van Eyck, and the most outstanding work produced was the famous Ghent Altarpiece; it has puzzled scholars to this day. It is a topic that occupied Pacht throughout his long career, and the present book is based on a series of lectures given at the University of Vienna in the 1960s and early 70s." "In this first English translation of the acclaimed German edition, Pacht examines the work of Jan and Hubert Van Eyck and their contemporaries in the context of a changing intellectual world - the transition from medieval thought to a perception that recognizes and embraces all facets of visible reality." "The illustrations, in colour and monochrome, cover not only the major work of the Brothers Van Eyck and the Master of Flemalle, but also many comparative works. A special attraction is the folding plate, in colour, of the entire Ghent Altarpiece."--Jacket

The eighteenth century was a time of supreme achievement in French architecture. The buildings of the period are distinguished by restraint and proportion, grace and practicality - qualities that influenced architecture across Europe.

It analyses not only the buildings, but also their interiors, and the contemporary theoretical literature
Book of architecture : containing the general principles of the art and the plans, elevations, and sections of some of the edifices built in France and in foreign countries by Germain Boffrand( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Germain Boffrand was one of the great French architects of the early eighteenth century. His work encompassed not only the design of town and country houses for the wealthy but also mines, bridges and hospitals. His Livre d'Architecture is one of the most original books on architecture ever written in France. Taking the Art of Poetry by the Latin poet Horace as its starting point, it developed an aesthetic of architecture focused on character, style and the emotional impact of a building that influenced Blondel, Le Camus de Mezieres and Soane, and is still central to contemporary debate about the nature and meaning of architecture." "Translated for the first time by David Britt, Boffrand's text is here accompanied by an extensive introduction and notes by Caroline van Eck who situates Boffrand's work within the main issues of eighteenth-century architectural aesthetics. Beautifully illustrated, including all the pictures chosen by Boffrand for his original publication, this book is an invaluable tool for teaching the history of architectural theory and an essential work for any architectural library."--Jacket
