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

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 501 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

Fortuny : his life and work by Guillermo de Osma( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive monograph captures the fashions, art, and fantasy of one of the world’s most original fashion designers. Mariano Fortuny is an exceptional figure in the history of art and design. Born in Spain and raised in Paris, he is most associated with Venice—he was often called the "magician of Venice"—where he lived and worked at the legendary Palazzo Fortuny until his death in 1949. Fortuny excelled not only in fashion, but also as a painter, printmaker, photographer, textile designer, set designer, lighting engineer, and inventor—all covered in-depth in the book. However, Fortuny’s creativity has had its most enduring legacy in the fashion world, and this comprehensive monograph includes much archival and previously unpublished material. Inspired by classical antiquity, Fortuny’s legendary designs were fashion’s first step toward modernity. His dresses featured finely pleated silks, often adorned with glass beads or similar objects, which flowed seductively over the female form, revealing its natural curves. His velvet capes were instantly popular, and the Delphos gown was favored by notable clients such as Eleanora Duse and Isadora Duncan. Fortuny’s designs remain the ultimate example of fashion as art and continue to inspire twenty-first-century designers"--Publisher's website

The first book in Dominique Demers's popular series, The New Teacher, brilliantly illustrated by Tony Ross, is an entertaining, imaginative and inspiring book that will make you wish you had a teacher just like Mademoiselle Charlotte
