Henri Labrouste : structure brought to light by Henri Labrouste( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Labrouste is one of the few nineteenth-century architects consistently lionized as a precursor of modern architecture throughout the twentieth century and into our own time. The two magisterial glass-and-iron reading rooms he built in Paris gave form to the idea of the modern library as a collective civic space. His influence was both immediate and long-lasting, not only on the development of the modern library but also on the exploration of new paradigms of space, materials and luminosity in places of great public assembly. Published to accompany the first exhibition devoted to Labrouste in the United States - and the first anywhere in the world in nearly 40 years - this publication presents nearly 225 works in all media, including drawings, watercolors, vintage and modern photographs, film stills and architectural models. Essays by a range of international architecture scholars explore Labrouste's work and legacy through a variety of approaches

A kingdom of images : French prints in the age of Louis XIV, 1660-1715 by Peter Fuhring( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Once considered the golden age of French printmaking, Louis XIV's reign saw Paris become a powerhouse of print production. During this time, the king aimed to make fine and decorative arts into signs of French taste and skill and, by extension, into markers of his imperialist glory. Prints were ideal for achieving these goals; reproducible and transportable, they fueled the sophisticated propaganda machine circulating images of Louis as both a man of war and a man of culture. This richly illustrated catalogue features more than one hundred prints from the Getty Research Institute and the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris, whose print collection Louis XIV established in 1667. An esteemed international group of contributors investigates the ways that cultural policies affected printmaking; explains what constitutes a print; describes how one became a printmaker; studies how prints were collected; and considers their reception in the ensuing centuries."--

The primitives of photography, 1850-1860( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With an overview of its pioneers - called "the primitives of photography" by Felix Nadar - this program explores the brief golden era between the time that photography was invented and the time it became an industry. The transformation of the camera from mere recording device to new artistic medium is seen in works that feature deliberate composition as well as in staged photos and composite prints. The technical processes by which photographers enhanced their works is also explained, especially in the creation of Oscar Rejlander's precursor of Photoshop, "The Two Ways of Life." Among others, the video covers Henry Fox Talbot, Hippolyte Bayard, Édouard Baldus, Gustave Le Gray, and Henry Peach Robinson, focusing on "Open Door," "Self Portrait as a Drowned Man," "Cloister at St. Triomphe in Arles," and "Fading Away." A part of the series Photo
The golden age of maritime maps : when Europe discovered the world by Catherine Hofmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Portolan charts, ' so called from the Italian adjective portolano, meaning 'related to ports or harbours, ' were born during the 12th century in the maritime community. These charts, drawn on parchment and crisscrossed with lines referring to the compass directions, indicated the succession of ports and anchorages along the shores, and were used by European sailors exploring the world up until the 18th century. Not only used as navigational instruments on boats, they were also produced for wealthy sponsors in the form of illuminated images of the world, to illustrate the economic and political interests of the major European sea powers. This book takes stock of the state of knowledge on these maps, bringing together contributions from a dozen European specialists, who trace the history and diversity of styles and places of production of these charts. This type of mapping is approached from three angles. The first part, 'The Mediterranean, ' refers to the manufacture and use of the first charts, centered on the Mediterranean, and the persistence of this tradition in the Mediterranean basin until the 18th century. The second part, 'Wide Open Spaces, ' shows how these regional charts have evolved from a technical and iconographical point of view at the time of the great European voyages, in order to include the oceans and new worlds. The third part, 'The Indian Ocean, ' shows how these charts, in a maritime area where ancient civilizations coexisted, were dependent on other cartographic traditions (ancient, Arab, Asian) before joining the information reported by Portuguese sailors and European trading companies in the modern era."--Publisher's website

Richard Prince : American prayer by Richard Prince( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in French and English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue de l'exposition présentée à la BNF à Paris du 29 mars au 26 juin 2011. Reprenant le titre du célèbre poème écrit en 1970 par le chanteur des Doors, Jim Morrison, l'exposition nous replonge dans la culture populaire et les contre-cultures américaines de l'après-guerre, sous la conduite des trois principaux auteurs de la Beat Generation, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs et Allen Ginsberg. Richard Prince, dont c'est la première grande exposition à Paris, expose simultanément ses œuvres et sa collection " beathippiepunk ", sans doute la plus importante en mains privées, constituée de manuscrits, d'éditions originales, d'archives et d'objets divers du XXe siècle, dans un dialogue inédit avec les collections les plus populaires et souvent les moins considérées de la Bibliothèque nationale de France : science-fiction psychédélique de Philip K. Dick, pulp fiction, polars, littérature sulfureuse ou pornographique. Et ici, l'artiste et le bibliophile semblent indissociables

Avedon's France : old world, new look( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring Richard Avedon's fascination with France, Avedon's France brings together a collection of spectacular photographs; selected interviews, letters, publications, and writings (including new material from the Avedon Foundation archives) and substantive essays by the authors. In addition to five portfolios of French sitters spanning a lifetime of portraiture, it looks at Avedon's apprenticeship to his mentor, Alexei Brodovitch; his encounters with French fashion; his idealised version of Paris in the movie Funny Face; his fresh take on the Belle Epoque in his book on Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Diary of a Century; and his fruitful association with the magazine Egoiste later in his life. Avedon's France offers a full account of Avedon's restless pursuit of new ways of looking at the world, and it reveals a master image maker, a true artist for his time
