Most widely held works by Mark Evans
Botticelli reimagined by Sandro Botticelli( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is one of the greatest artists of all time. Renowned for the iconic Birth of Venus and Primavera, his work has become part of our collective visual memory, influencing product development, fashion design and artists as diverse as Andy Warhol, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, René Magritte and Jeff Koons. But Botticelli's fame today was by no means a foregone conclusion. Quickly forgotten after his death, he was only rediscovered as an artist in the nineteenth century -- and much of what we know of his work has been pieced together from fragmentary evidence; only three of his works are signed or documented. Since then, ''Botticelli'' has been interpreted in many different ways, and has led to many questions. How does a painter acquire international fame? What made Botticelli a pop icon? Why are his works considered timeless? What is it that makes him so ''European'' that his Venus appears on the 10 cent coin? What we can say -- safely -- is that Botticelli, more than any other Old Master, inspired and continues to inspire modern and contemporary art."--Publisher's description
John Constable : the making of a master by Mark Evans( Book )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Criticized in his lifetime for his rough handling of paint, John Constable's (1776-1837) paintings have long defined the idea of the English countryside, its geography fully captured by his remarkable naturalism. His vivid and timeless oil sketches, as he called them, have been celebrated since the 1890s as precursors of Impressionism, Modernism, and photography. This major book reconciles the two defining aspects of Constable's work--his revolutionary painting techniques and his reverence for the old masters. Where other artists competed with the masters, Constable assimilated their ideas and values to imbue his own naturalistic vision with dynamism. This seeming incompatibility, placed in the context of the artist's wider practice, helps delineate why Constable remains such a powerful influence on contemporary artists
A masterpiece reconstructed : the Hours of Louis XII by Victoria and Albert Museum( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean Bourdichon was the court painter to four successive French kings including Louis XII and his predecessor, Charles VIII. Bourdichon painted the Hours of Louis XII for the king of France around the time of Louis' coronation in 1498. Published on the occasion of an exhibition held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, October 18, 2005, to January 8, 2006, and at the Victoria and Albert Museum, February 2 to May 1, 2006, A Masterpiece Reconstructed reproduces the book's sixteen known miniatures together with a selection of other books illuminated by the artist, by his teacher Jean Fouquet, and by their contemporaries." "Janet Backhouse, who originally assembled the evidence that revealed this long-forgotten masterpiece, introduces the Hours of Louis XII and its cycle of miniatures. Thomas Kren discusses the book's provocative miniature of Bathsheba bathing within the context of the king's own taste and predilections and within the then-emerging genre of the female nude in French painting. Nancy Turner considers the importance of Bourdichon's painting and illuminating technique in the Hours of Louis XII in relation to his other work. Mark Evans examines the individual histories of each of the surviving portions of the book. Lastly, an appendix reconstructs the book's devotional contents and program of illumination."--Jacket
Raphael : cartoons and tapestries for the Sistine Chapel by Raphael( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In September 2010, the V & A will show four of the ten tapestries Raphael designed for the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. These remarkable works are comparable with Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Ceiling as masterpieces of High Renaissance art and, in a unique exhibition, will be displayed with the full-size designs Raphael made for them - the famous Cartoons, which have been on display in the V & A since 1865. This book introduces and contextualizes the cartoons and the tapestries made from them. It looks at how and why they were made, before discussing each subject individually in terms of sources and composition. Accessible and beautiful, it will be essential reading for all Raphael and Renaissance enthusiasts"--Provided by publisher
The Sforza hours by Mark Evans( Book )

16 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renaissance illuminated manuscript, its lavish decorations were painted in two campaigns, the first around 1490 for Bona of Savoy, widow of Galeazso Sforza, Duke of Milan.

Thirty years later, in 1517-20, Bona's heir Margaret of Austria, Regent of the Netherlands, commissioned 16 additional miniatures to complement Birago's
The painted world : from illumination to abstraction by Mark Evans( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This alternative history of painting takes the outstanding collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum as the starting point for an all-inclusive survey of the painted world." "The history of painting is often reduced to the story of a tiny elite of easel pictures, composed exclusively of old masters and avant-garde works. Many British paintings, watercolours, miniatures, icons and non-European works, as well as modern pictures which are no longer perceived as 'cutting edge', relate uneasily to this twin canon of old and modern masters. A broad range of paintings, from stained glass to painted ceramics, furniture, textiles and items of costume are implicitly excluded as belonging to the realm of applied art. Copies of any type are routinely discounted, unless transfigured by the authority of a master of higher status than their original. This illustrated account, based upon the multifarious collections of the V & A Museum, seeks to redress the balance by exploring the wider history of painting, from the Middle Ages to the present day."--Jacket
