El Greco, life and work, a new history by Fernando Marías( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Domenikos Theotokopoulos, known to us as El Greco, was one of the seminal figures of the Spanish Golden Age. This volume, published to mark the four hundredth anniversary of the artist's death, features new photographs of recently cleaned and restored paintings, revealing hitherto unknown facets of his art. Born in Crete in 1541 under Venetian rule, raised in the iconographic traditions of Byzantine art, and acquainted with both Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic practice, El Greco journeyed to Venice and Rome in the late Renaissance, before finding patronage in Spain at the court of Philip II. He was a painter not only of religious subjects but also of idiosyncratic portraits executed in his own uniquely dramatic and expressionistic style. He spent approximately half his life in Toledo, a city with which his name has become indelibly linked, although he was never fully accepted and was known there as a disputatious outsider

Picasso's kitchen by Emmanuel Guigon( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"An exhibition on the subject of Picasso's kitchen? Why not? There is nothing at all incongruous in the idea, because cooking is a subtle revelation of Picasso's art: painting, engraving, sculpture, ceramics, poetry and theatre. What is more, we should not neglect the role of the restaurant as a meeting place for the avant-gardes, from the Quatre Gats tavern in Barcelona to the cabaret Au Lapin Agile on Montmartre, where the bohemians of the time and Picasso's little entourage would share a table. Food, utensils and places related to cooking have a powerful capacity for evocation or association. Indeed, the very act of eating and digesting is a metaphor for a creative artist. In the edible--and even the inedible--there is a joyful possibility of swallowing the world. Picasso had this taste for the world and for all that is concrete, to the point of biting into it: 'I can no longer bear this miracle, that of knowing nothing of this world and having learned nothing but to love things and eat them alive.' His continual inventions and the euphoria of his imaginary bear witness to an insatiable appetite: Picasso enters the arena of the kitchen and commences his great ceremony. As Heraclitus said: 'the gods are in the kitchen.'"--Back cover
