New objectivity : modern German art in the Weimar Republic, 1919-1933 by Stephanie Barron( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully illustrated book brings together a dazzling variety of works and provides fresh insight into artistic expressions of life in the Weimar Republic. Between the end of World War I and the Nazi rise to power, Germany's Weimar Republic (1919-1933) was a thriving laboratory of art and culture. As the country experienced unprecedented and often tumultuous social, economic, and political upheaval, many artists rejected Expressionism in favor of a new realism to capture this emerging society. Dubbed Neue Sachlichkeit--New Objectivity--its adherents turned a cold eye on the new Germany: its desperate prostitutes and crippled war veterans, its alienated urban landscapes, its decadent underworld where anything was available for a price. Showcasing 150 works by more than 50 artists, this book reflects the full diversity and strategies of New Objectivity. Organized around five thematic sections, it mixes photography, works on paper, and painting to bring them into a visual dialogue. Artists such as Otto Dix, George Grosz, and Max Beckmann are included alongside Christian Schad, Alexander Kanoldt, Georg Schrimpf, August Sander, Lotte Jacobi, and Aenne Biermann. Also included are essays that examine the politics of New Objectivity and its legacy; its relation to international art movements of the time; the context of gender roles and sexuality; and the influence of new technology and consumer goods
William Merritt Chase : a modern master by William Merritt Chase( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of modern art owes a great debt to William Merritt Chase (1849-1916), one of America's influential artists and educators. Chase was a leading member of the international artistic avant-garde and was best known for his mastery of a wide range of subjects in oil and pastel, including figures, landscapes, urban park scenes, interiors, and portraits. As a teacher and founder of the Shinnecock Summer School of Art and the New York School of Art, Chase mentored a new generation of modernists, including Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Joseph Stella. A century after his death, the breadth and richness of Chase's career are celebrated in this beautifully illustrated publication. Five essays by prominent scholars of American art offer new insights into Chase's multi-faceted artistic practice and his position in the international cultural climate at the turn of the 20th century
Henri Rousseau : archaic naiveté by Henri Rousseau( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born into a family of tradespeople in Laval, France, Henri Rousseau became a customs and excise officer in the customs house in Paris in 1871, a job that earned him the nickname Le Douanier ("the customs officer"). Rousseau was an enthusiastic self-taught artist. Nourished by themes in the popular imagination, Rousseau's painting expresses a vision of reality, populated by iconic figures outlined with hieratic force against flat blocks of saturated colour and fantastic spaces--a vision long branded as naive, ingenuous, and uncultivated. This book demonstrates how fully Rousseau Le Douanier's masterpieces are part of this archaic trend, and of the world of art in general, from his dream-like exotic landscapes to his still-lifes. They are shown alongside works signed by the likes of Picasso, Gaugain, Frida Kahlo, and Carlo Carrà
Tàpies : lo sguardo dell'artista by Antoni Tàpies( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Catalan artist Antoni Tàpies' life (1923-2012) was marked by existential questioning. Philosophers, religious thinkers, scientists, Old Masters and contemporary artists alike influenced his artistic practice. Tàpies' impulse to collect stemmed directly from this fascination. Constantly seeking a link between the many cultures, geographies and epochs of humanity, his spiritual quest typified all his artistic preoccupations. The 2013 exhibition 'Tàpies. Lo sguardo dell'artista' (The eye of the artist) at Palazzo Fortuny presents a thoughtful selection of Tàpies' own work in the broader context of his collection. The intimacy of the house of Mariano Fortuny, himself a kaleidoscopic collector, extends the dialogue. This book endeavors to convey the spirit of Tàpies' art and his extraordinary eye as both an artist and a collector. 0Exhibition: Palazzo Fortuny, Venice, Italy (01.06.-24.11.2013). 0

Le Douanier Rousseau : l'innocence archaïque : [exposition, Venise, Palazzo Ducale, 6 mars-5 juillet 2015, Paris, Musée d'Orsay, 22 mars-17 juillet 2016, Prague, Národní galerie, 16 septembre 2016-15 janvier 2017] by Henri Rousseau( Book )

Cet autodidacte devenu peintre sur le tard ne commence à peindre qu'en 1871, en amateur passionné, sans culture ni métier. Il produit des paysages qui illustrent souvent les progrès techniques de son temps, des portraits, des sujets patriotiques et militaires, des scènes de la vie populaire et des vues d'un Paris qu'il ne quittera jamais.0000

Eblouissante Venise : Venise, les arts et l'Europe au XVIIIe siècle( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A l'aube du XVIIIe siècle, Venise brille de tous ses feux. La singularité de la cité des doges, son faste, son carnaval, ses réceptions grandioses, ses coutumes inédites ainsi que le renom de ses artistes attirent de nombreux visiteurs. On vient de toute l'Europe y écouter les opéras de Vivaldi ou de Hasse, interprétés par le castrat Farinelli ou Faustina Bordoni, assister aux spectacles qui se donnent dans la rue comme au théâtre, s'adonner au jeu, admirer les palais décorés par les plus grands peintres et sculpteurs... Forts de leur notoriété, les artistes vénitiens exportent leurs talents dans les cours d'Europe où ils récoivent de prestigieuses commandes: Canaletto diffuse en Angleterre le goût des vedute; les Tiepolo peignent d'immenses fresques qui décorent demeures et églises dans les Etats germaniques et à Madrid; Pellegriniet Rosalba Cardera sont accueillis dans le Paris de la Régence. Mais peu à peu, la santé économique de celle qui fut la Dominante s'essouffle, et la Sérénissime, tout en continuant à séduire, décline lentement. En 1797, Napoléon Bonaparte met fin à la République. C'est alors que naît le mythe de Venise, une Venise éblouissante jusqu'à son dernier souffle"--Page 4 of cover

John Ruskin : Le pietre di Venezia by Anna Ottani Cavina( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in Italian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ad aprire le celebrazioni per il bicentenario della nascita di John Ruskin, che si terranno nel 2019, questo magnifico volume racconta la storia d'amore, lunga e fruttuosa, tra il famoso critico inglese e la città di Venezia. Durante la sua vita, Ruskin visitò Venezia numerosissime volte a partire dal 1835 e, in seguito ai lunghi soggiorni in città, pubblicò l'opera in tre volumi intitolata Le pietre di Venezia, un inno alla bellezza, all'unicità e alla fragilità di questa città, destinata a diventare un caposaldo della cultura anglosassone e l'inizio del revival gotico d'epoca romantica. Tra i metodi d'indagine di cui Ruskin si serviva spiccano i numerosi taccuini, schizzi con rilievi architettonici, acquerelli, albumine, planotipi e dagherrotipi (il critico possedeva una primitiva macchina fotografica già nel 1849!). Queste testimonianze iconografiche sono l'oggetto di questo volume, e ci consentono di affrontare Ruskin da un nuovo, certamente meno conosciuto, punto di vista: come artista a tutto tondo e non solamente come scrittore.00Exhibition: Palazzo Ducale, Venice, Italy (10.03.-10.06.2018)
