1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The time is ripe for a fundamental reassessment of the impact that Futurism had on British culture and of Vorticism - the specifically British avant-garde movement inspired by the founder of the Italian Futurist movement, Filippo Tommasao Marinetti. This text, which accompanies an exhibition at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, combines novel material and original research to provide a coherent overview of Futurism and Vorticism, before, during and after World War I. The exhibition is the first major showing by the movement since 1974 and the text illustrates works in a wide range of media by England's only Futurist, C.R.W. Nevinson, and by the core of artists associated with Vorticism: Wyndham Lewis; Edward Wadsworth; Frederick Etchells; William Roberts; Henri Gaudier-Brzeska; Jacob Epstein; and Jacob Kramer. The influence exerted on these artists by the Italian Futurists Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini and the mercurial impresario of Futurism, Marinetti, is explored fully. The works illustrated are from a range of prominent public and private collections, a number having never previously been exhibited

Jewish art treasures from Prague : the State Jewish Museum in Prague and its collections : a catalogue by Státní židovské muzeum (Czech Republic)( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1980 exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, for which this is the catalogue, comprises 300 of the finest examples drawn from the State Jewish Museum, Prague which houses the most important collections of Judaica in the world. It is the only showing of this extensive exhibition in the West. The Jewish ritual art included in it spans the period from the late Renaissance to the early twentieth century and includes synagogue textiles, historic and decorative work in silver and other metals, paintings depicting the elaborate ritual of the late eighteenth-century Prague Burial Brotherhood, glass and ceramics. From the twentieth century come drawings and paintings by adult artists and by some of the thousands of children who were imprisoned in the Terezín concentration camp and who died as victims of the holocaust. Exhibition and catalogue offer a glimpse of the rich heritage of Jewish life in Central Europe since the Middle Ages, and a modest memorial to the Jewish community in Bohemia and Moravia who were virtually exterminated by the Nazis."--Publisher's description

Clothing culture : dress in Egypt in the first millennium AD : clothing from Egypt in the collection of the Whitworth Art Gallery, the University of Manchester by Whitworth Art Gallery( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This is the first in-depth study of the Whitworth Art Gallery's acclaimed collection of clothing from post-Pharaonic Egypt, most of which was excavated between 1888 and 1923. The evolution of the shaping and cut of garments, especially tunics, cloaks and headwear, is traced from the late 3rd century, when Egypt was under Roman rule, to the 10th century, by which time it was an Arab state. The weaving and sewing skills of the era are brought into sharp focus, as well as the distinctive styles, decoration and colors of the clothes. Egypt in the first millennium AD was a rich cultural melting pot and this diversity was reflected in the dress of the people."
