Fantasy and faith : the art of Gustave Doré( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Hebrew and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the second half of the nineteenth century, Gustave Dore (1832-1883) was one of the world's most famous artists. This illustrated book situates Dore in the context of French nineteenth-century art, focuses on his major works, and assesses his impact on North American collectors and museums."--Jacket
Killer heels : the art of the high-heeled shoe( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Killer Heels explores the rich cultural history of the high heel and its relation to power, fantasy, sexuality and identity. More than 160 spectacular contemporary and historical shoe designs - from sixteenth-century Venetian platforms to twenty-first-century Christian Louboutins - are presented around six themes: Revival and Reinterpretation, Rising in the East, Glamour and Transgression, Architecture, Metamorphosis and Space Walk. Going beyond the archetypal forms of stiletto, wedge and platform, these extraordinary designs play with the cultural and artistic possibilities of the high heel, use innovative or unexpected materials and push the limits of functionality, wear ability and beauty. Complementing the shoes are stills, sketches and artist statements for six films specially commissioned for the exhibition from Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh, Zach Gold, Steven Klein, Nick Knight, Marilyn Minter and Rashaad Newsome that explore a range of provocative themes and demonstrate the power of the high heel in the collective imagination. In addition, several of the designers included in the exhibition (including Brian Atwood, Zaha Hadid, Pierre Hardy and Christian Louboutin), along with Elizabeth Semmelhack, Curator of the Bata Shoe Museum, contribute thoughts on topics such as their inspiration and design process and the cultural significance of high heels. Beautiful, informative and just plain fun, this collection of killer heels is filled with stunning photos and fashion lore
French moderns : Monet to Matisse, 1850/1950 by Brooklyn Museum( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The years between the Revolution of 1848 and the end of World War II were characterised by profound social, intellectual, and political change in France. The art world, centred in Paris, also witnessed remarkable transformations as artists experimented with bold, expressive styles. Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism...all emerged in and around the French capital during this period, and had profound impacts on the Western artistic canon. This splendid volume featuring 59 works from the Brooklyn Museum's renowned European collection, celebrates France as the artistic centre of international modernism from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. Ranging widely in scale, subject matter, and style, these paintings and sculptures were produced by the era's leading artists, both French-born and others who studied and worked in France. The 47 artists represented include Bonnard, Caillebotte, Cezanne, Chagall, Degas, Matisse, Monet, Redon, Renoir, and Rodin. Organised into four sections, the works in this book exemplify the successive avant-garde movements that defined modern art in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, tracing a shift from naturalism to the rise of abstraction. Chapters on 'Landscape,' 'Still Life,' 'Portraits and Figures,' and 'The Nude,' invite the reader to discover comparisons and contrasts across time and mediums."

High Heels schon der verschwörerisch gehauchte Begriff lässt nicht nur Frauenherzen höherschlagen. Ob in Plateau-, Keil- oder Stilettoform, an Pumps, Sandalen oder Stiefeln: Hohe Absätze versprechen lange Beine und erhöhte Aufmerksamkeitswerte. Das wissen wir nicht erst seit den Auftritten von Carry, Samantha und Co. in ‚Sex and the City’, schon die Venezianerinnen des 16. Jahrhunderts balancierten auf erhöhten Sohlen durchs Hochwasser. ‚Killer Heels’ setzt noch eins drauf und verkündet schon im Vorwort: This Is Not a Shoe. Was Künstler wie Balenciaga, Chanel, Nicholas Kirkwood, Julian Hakes, Christian Louboutin, Noritaka Tatehana, Roger Vivier oder Atalanta Weller schufen, ist nicht unbedingt für den täglichen Gebrauch bestimmt. Vielmehr ist jeder hier gezeigte Schuh ein Statement, ein Kunstwerk, ein Designobjekt, ein Must-have. In sechs thematischen Kapiteln setzen sich die Autoren mit dem High Heel als Kultobjekt auseinander, mit seiner reichen kulturellen Geschichte und komplexen Beziehung zu Sexualität, Fantasie, Funktionalität, Identität und Macht. Im Spannungsfeld von Mode, Design und Kulturgeschichte steht hier das begehrenswerteste Objekt der Modegeschichte mit seinen skulpturalen, architektonischen und künstlerischen Möglichkeiten im Mittelpunkt. Gestalterisch inszeniert im Dialog mit historischen Vorläufern des 16. bis 19. Jahrhunderts und den gewagtesten Kreationen der Design-Ikonen des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts wie Paul Poiret, Elsa Schiaparelli und Salvatore Ferragamo.0Exhibition: Brooklyn Museum, New York, USA (10.9.2014-15.2.2015)
