Elizabeth Pringle has lived all her very long life on the Scottish island of Arran. A familiar yet solitary figure. But when Elizabeth dies, her will contains a surprise. She has left her home and her belongings to a stranger - a young mother she watched pushing a pram down the road more than 30 years ago. Now it falls to Martha, the baby in that pram, to find out how her mother inherited the house, and in doing so, perhaps leave her own past behind. But first she has to find the answer to the question: who was Elizabeth Pringle?

The Summer Exhibition. BBC Arts at the Royal Academy by Alastair Sooke( Visual )

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

What makes the Summer Exhibition an enduring fascination? The combination of ordinary Brits showing alongside the art world's most celebrated scions; the chance for emerging and established names to make a big splash; and the opportunity to see and be seen at one of the social calendar's most spectacular shindigs. Presented by Kirsty Wark, Alastair Sooke and Morgan Quaintance, the programme comes from the very glamorous private view, and goes behind the scenes of the Academy in the run-up to the opening. It visits artists' studios and amateur artists, and delves into the fascinating process of curating and hanging the world's largest open submission exhibition. One of the only institutions run by artists, an unprecedented twelve new Royal Academicians have been elected into the RA by their peers over the last year. What will Thomas Heatherwick, Bob and Roberta Smith, Conrad Shawcross, Wolfgang Tilmans and Yinka Shonibare mean for the future of the RA? Plus, Cornelia Parker curates a room and Kaiser Chiefs play their new single

Botticelli : il pittore della grazia( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Undetermined and held by 2 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
