Gothic art by Victoria Charles( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 2,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gothic art finds its roots in the powerful architecture of the cathedrals of northern France. It is a medieval art movement that developed all across Europe for more than 200 years. Leaving Roman roundish forms behind, the architects started using flying buttress and pointed arches to open cathedrals to the daylight. Period of great economic and social changes, the gothic period also saw the development of a new iconography celebrating the Holy Mary, at the opposite to the fearful iconography of dark Roman times. Full of rich changes in all the different arts (architecture, sculpture, painting, etc.), gothic gave way to the Italian renaissance and international gothic

18 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and French and held by 2,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Baroque art by Klaus H Carl( )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Baroque period lasted from the beginning of the seventeenth century to the middle of the eighteenth century. Baroque art was artists' response to the Catholic Church's demand for solemn grandeur following the Council of Trent, and through its monumentality and grandiloquence it seduced the great European courts. Amongst the Baroque arts, architecture has, without doubt, left the greatest mark in Europe: the continent is dotted with magnificent Baroque churches and palaces, commissioned by patrons at the height of their power. The works of Gian Lorenzo Bernini of the Southern School and Peter Paul Rubens of the Northern School alone show the importance of this artistic period. Rich in images encompassing the arts of painting, sculpture and architecture, this work offers a complete insight into this passionate period in the history of art
The Viennese Secession by Victoria Charles( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Symbol of a forecasted revolution, the Viennese Secession possesses within itself the dissidence of about twenty talented artists against the conservative academicism which petrified Vienna and the whole Austro-Hungarian Empire at that time. Influenced by the Art Nouveau, the Secession, created in 1897 by Klimt, Moll and Hoffmann, was not an anonymous artistic revolution among so many others. Dissenting in essence, defining itself as an "art total", without any political or commercial constraint, this movement resembles more the philosophy that the ideological turmoil affected the craftsmen, architects, graphic artists and designers. Turning aside from the established art to dive into the generous and decorative shapes of Flora and the other nymphs, the artists open themselves to an estheticism of which erotic power could only offend the bourgeoisie of the time ..."--Publisher description
Soutine by Klaus H Carl( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ChaÃ#x83;Â#x83;Ã#x82;Âm̄ Soutine (1893-1943), the unconventional and controversial painter of Belorussian origin, combines influences of classic European painting with Post-Impressionism and Expressionism. As a member of the Artists from Belarus, a group within the Parisian School, he created an oeuvre mainly consisting of landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. His individual style, characterised by displays of humour and despair and by use of luminous colours, makes him a modern master who is still little understood

L'art gothique by Victoria Charles( )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in French and held by 1,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Développé à travers l'Europe pendant plus de 200 ans, l'art gothique est un mouvement qui trouve ses racines dans la puissante architecture des cathédrales du nord de la France. Délaissant la rondeur romane, les architectes commencèrent à utiliser les arcs-boutants et les voûtes en berceau brisé pour ouvrir les cathédrales à la lumière. Période de bouleversements économiques et sociaux, la période gothique vit aussi le développement d'une nouvelle iconographie célébrant la Vierge, à l'opposé de la thématique terrifiante de l'époque romane. Riche de changements dans tous les domaines (architect
Gotische Kunst by Victoria Charles( )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in German and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Kunst der Gotik findet ihre Wurzeln in der kraftvollen Architektur der Kathedralen Nordfrankreichs. Es handelt sich um eine mittelalterliche Kunstbewegung, die sich in Europa über mehr als 200 Jahre erstreckte. Die Architekten wandten sich von den runden Formen der Romanischen Kunst ab und begannen, Strebebögen und Spitzbögen einzusetzen, um die Kathedralen für das Tageslicht zu öffnen. Die Epoche der Gotik war durch tief greifende wirtschaftliche und soziale Veränderungen gekennzeichnet und brachte darüber hinaus eine neue Ikonographie hervor. An Stelle der angsterfüllten, dunklen Iconogr
La Sécession viennoise by Victoria Charles( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

± À chaque âge son art, à chaque art sa liberté.? Voila la devise de la Sécession viennoise, mouvement dissident (1892-1906), qui fut porté par une vingtaine d'artistes éclairés luttant contre l'académisme conservateur pétrifiant Vienne et tout l'empire austro-hongrois. Courant de l'Art nouveau, la Sécession, officiellement fondée en 1897 par Klimt, Moll et Hoffmann, ne fut pas une révolution artistique anonyme parmi tant d'autres. Contestataires par essence, les sécessionnistes viennois ont peint ce qu'on ne devait pas peindre : les frôlements, les baisers, les violences. Se définissant comme un art total sans contrainte politique ni commerciale, l'effervescence de ce mouvement toucha tous les artisans, architectes, et décorateurs. Dans cet ouvrage, peinture, sculpture et architecture sont confrontées par l'auteur pour souligner la richesse et la diversité du mouvement viennois
Wiener Secession by Victoria Charles( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Wiener Secession, gegründet von Gustav Klimt, Carl Moll und Josef Hoffmann, war ein Wegbereiter für die moderne Kunst. Zwanzig Künstler rebellierten gegen den erdrückenden Einfluss des konservativen Künstlerhauses auf die Wiener Kunstszene, gegen die veraltete Kunst einer Epoche und gegen die Mentalität des Kaiserreichs Österreich-Ungarn im Allgemeinen. Als Erben des Art Nouveau waren diese Künstler nicht einfach um ihre eigene Kunstnische bemüht, sondern strebten nach der Verwirklichung eines "Gesamtkunstwerks", einem umfassenden Kunstbegriff, der Kunsthandwerk, bildende Kunst und Archite
The Nabis by A. G Kostenevich( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Bonnard war der führende Kopf einer Gruppe postimpressionistischer Künstler, die sich selbst ""die Nabis"" nannten, ausgehend vom hebräischen Wort für ""Prophet"". Unter dem Einfluss von Odilon Redon, Puvis de Chavannes, zeitgenössischer Symbolik und japanischer Holzdruckkunst revolutionisierten Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton und Denis, um nur die bekanntesten zu nennen, den Geist des Kunsthandwerks zu einer Zeit des Höhepunkts der französischen Malerei. Auch wenn die zunehmende Individualisierung ihrer Werke die Einheit der Gruppe bedrohte, waren die Nabis doch in erster Linie eine Gemein
Hokusai landscapes, beauties and the uncanny, a special exhibition : fūkei, bijin, kisō by Edmond De Goncourt( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katsushika Hokusai ist ohne Zweifel der seit der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts im Westen berühmteste Künstler Japans. Die Werke Hokusais spiegeln die künstlerischen Ausdrucksformen einer isolierten Kultur wider. Gleichzeitig war er einer der ersten japanischen Künstler, der in Europa Bekanntheit erlangte und großen Einfluss auf impressionistische und postimpressionistische Maler wie etwa Vincent van Gogh ausübte. Hokusai galt schon zu seinen Lebzeiten als ein Meister der Kunst des Ukiyo-e. Er fasziniert uns noch heute mit der Vielfalt und Bedeutung seines in diesem Buch in seiner gesamten abwechslu
1000 drawings of genius by Victoria Charles( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long thought of as the neglected stepchild of painting, the art of drawing has recently begun to enjoy a place in the sun. With major museums around the world, from the Met to the Uffizi, mounting exhibitions focused on the art of draughtsmanship, drawing is receiving more critical and academic attention than ever before. This captivating text gives readers a sweeping analysis of the history of drawing, from Renaissance greats like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, to Modernist masters like M.C. Escher, Pablo Picasso, and everyone in between
Art deco by Victoria Charles( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art Deco style was established on the ashes of a disappeared world, the one from before the First World War, and on the foundation stone of a world yet to become, opened to the most undisclosed promises. Forgetting herself in the whirl of Jazz Age and the euphoria of the "Années Folles", the Garçonne with her linear shape reflects the architectural style of Art Deco: to the rounded curves succeed the simple and plain androgynous straight line ... Architecture, painting, furniture and sculpture, dissected by the author, proclaim the druthers for sharp lines and broken angles. Although ephemeral, th
Franz Marc by Franz Marc( )

14 editions published in 2013 in 4 languages and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Condemned by the Nazis as a degenerate artist, Franz Marc (1880-1916) was a German painter whose stark linearity and emotive use of color eloquently expressed the pain and trauma of war. In work such as his celebrated Fate of the Animals, Marc created a raw emotional expression of primitive violence which he called a premonition of the war which would eventually be the cause of his own untimely death at the age of 36
30 millennia of sculpture by Joseph Manca( )

Offering an integral vision of the evolution of forms across civilisations and epochs, 30 Centuries of Sculpture presents the masterpieces of sculpture that, with their intriguing silhouettes, have shaped the current notion of beauty. Sculptures can reflect an era, an artist, or his public; this gallery in high relief presents, with its numerous references, detailed commentaries on works, and biographies of artists, an open door to history and art, and an ideal guide for both students and neophytes"--Résumé de l'éditeur

30 millennia of erotic art by Joe Alan Thomas( )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the thousand-year-old statues celebrating fertility to the odalisques of the modern painters, erotic art has always held a prominent place in society, whatever their morals or cultural references. This work has assembled one thousand images of erotic artworks, from all times and all continents, to illustrate how the representation of these pleasures of the flesh testifies to the evolution of different civilisations and their histories. While eroticism and sexuality are at the forefront of today's advertising and media, this book offers an exceptional view into the archives of erotic imagery and emphasises the artistic value of these magnificently sinful illustrations"--
