Botticelli : il pittore della grazia( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sandro Filipepi, detto il Botticelli, nacque a Firenze nel 1445 e fu uno dei più grandi maestri del Rinascimento. La sua formazione avvenne nella bottega di Filippo Lippi e nel 1467 divenne allievo del Verrocchio. Dai due maestri ereditò da un lato i delicati colori e le linee dolci, dall'altro la plasticità delle figure. I suoi mecenati più importanti furono i Medici, la potente famiglia che governava Firenze, per i quali iniziò a lavorare dal 1475 realizzando le sue due opere più famose, La nascita di Venere e La Primavera. La sua fama varcò i confini della città quando nel 1481 venne chiamato a Roma da Papa Sisto IV per collaborare alla decorazione della Cappella Sistina. Il DVD contiene due sezioni: la prima offre un quadro della vita e delle opere immortali del pittore della grazia e della bellezza, la cui evoluzione artistica, così legata alla situazione politica e religiosa fiorentina, segnò il passaggio drammatico dal periodo aureo dell'Umanesimo alle inquietudini del nuovo secolo. La seconda sezione presenta per la prima volta l'eccezionale serie dei meravigliosi disegni realizzati dal maestro tra il 1480 e il 1495 per illustrare la Divina Commedia, scritta 200 anni prima da Dante Alighieri. Gli splendidi disegni di Botticelli raccontano il fantastico viaggio di Dante nell'aldilà con estrema maestria, come sequenze di un film scritto oltre cinquecento anni fa

Man in the Moon / Glenn Beck presents ; an American Dream Labs production by Glenn Beck( Visual )

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

"Man in the Moon is an epic rendition of America's story -- both past and present -- providing the ability to view the world through a unique lens. Rather than hearing from a human narrator, the historical and contemporary accounts were told by the "Man in the Moon." This fictional character has observed all the mankind's antics from his coveted place in the sky. From the good to the bad, the Man in the Moon has seen it all. During the show, he lectured, shared his take on the character of humankind and offered compassionate advice. "You are at the same time arrogant and self-loathing. You are a puzzlement. But the ancient truth remains: as the light grows dimmer, things begin to become harder to see," the Man in the Moon said during the conclusion of the show. The first of its kind, Man in the Moon mixes together various forms of art and media to put on an exciting and educational show that included dancers, acrobatics, fireworks, spoken word, music -- and innovative technologies."--Back cover of container
