The world new made : figurative painting in the twentieth century by Timothy Hyman( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timothy Hyman argues that figuration never went away; abstraction was just one of the ways by which artists renewed pictorial language. This book is structured not as a general survey, but as an in-depth exploration of over 130 specific paintings, and accompanying artists' writings. Focusing on those painters who took a contrary path, he presents a case for these artists as a resistance of sorts. Starting with the oppressive stylistic imperative that set in as Cubism became a movement, he guides us through the Neue Sachlichkeit response to Expressionism, Intimism, 'outsiders' and the aftermath of Abstract Expressionism, towards a new kind of history painting. He shows how abstraction becomes a midwife to a new kind of figuration. A celebration of the richness of human-centred painting over the last century, Timothy Hyman's lavishly illustrated new book brings these often-marginalized artists centre stage. Together they offer a counter-argument to Western formalism, and a foundation for the figurative painters of the 21st century
Sienese painting : the art of a city-republic (1278-1477) by Timothy Hyman( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two centuries, the city-republic of Siena was home to a brilliant succession of painters who produced some of the greatest masterpieces of all time. This overview is an essential introduction to this extraordinary artistic tradition. Taking a broadly chronological approach, it moves from the fourteenth-century Siena of Duccio, Simone Martini and the Lorenzetti brothers, to the fifteenth-century city of Sassetta and Giovanni di Paolo. Perceptive visual analysis of the distinctive styles and conventions of Sienese painting is combined with clear explanations of traditional techniques such as fresco and tempera. The works are also placed in their social and religious context through discussion of Siena a system of government, its civic consciousness, the importance of the Franciscan movement and the cults of local saints."--Jacket
British vision : observation and imagination in British art, 1750-1950 by Belgique) Musée des beaux-arts (Gand( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British Vision presents some of the most celebrated works in British art history, selected from public and private collections in Europe, Britain, and the United States by Robert Hoozee, drawing on the expertise of Andrew Dempsey, John Gage, Mark Haworth-Booth, and Timothy Hyman. Among the artists whose work appears in British Vision are William Hogarth, Thomas Gainsborough, George Stubbs, William Blake, Henry Fuseli, John Constable, J.M.W. Turner, Richard Dadd, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, Stanley Spencer, Graham Sutherland, Francis Bacon, and Lucien Freud." "Essays by a group of distinguished art historians focus on two defining characteristics of British art, observation and imagination, seen within the context of society, landscape, and the visionary. Together, they set forth important arguments about what makes British art recognizable, what gives it its typically "British" style, and how British artists have contributed to the history of art as a whole. The two central themes that emerge are the British talent for observation and the tendency toward the visionary and the eccentric. This illustrated catalog is a record of the most comprehensive exhibition of British art to be displayed in recent years, and represents a unique opportunity to discover the creative forces that shaped British art over two centuries."--Jacket

Stanley Spencer by Stanley Spencer( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) was the most original British painter of his era. This catalogue celebrates the achievements of an artist who continued to explore and develop over five decades." "By 1914, aged only twenty-two, Spencer had completed a series of important religious works set in the Thameside village of his childhood. He experienced the First World War as a loss of Eden, yet his art was opened to complexities unguessed at in his Cookham innocence. An essay by Patrick Wright focuses on Spencer in the 1920s, uncovering a new cultural milieu and pointing to hidden themes in the murals he painted for Burchclere Chapel. Timothy Hyman charts Spencer's work as a process of autobiographical revelation, tracing his transition from the monumental Christian idealism of Giotto to his confrontation with raw reality and sexual fantasy in the crisis years of the 1930s. Both essays locate Spencer alongside his contemporaries, such as Otto Dix, Max Beckmann and Diego Rivera. Reproducing a large selection of his finest works, including several that are little known, this book offers fresh perspectives based on current research and presents a ground-breaking survey of the artist."--BOOK JACKET
Bhupen Khakhar by Timothy Hyman( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph presents a perspective on the art of Bhupen Khakhar (b. 1934), one of the most significant Indian artists of this century. Born into a lower middle-class Gujarati, family in central Bombay Khakhar came to art only in his thirties. Trained as a chartered accountant, his early work dealt with popular iconic imagery and with the condition of "the insignificant man", trapped in an unremarkable existence." "Khakhar was subsequently involved, with several of his Baroda contemporaries, in the devising of a synthetic visual language that sought to reach a contemporary expression without forsaking links with tradition." "Khakhar's work from the beginning of the 80s onwards has been marked by a concern with homosexuality, making him possibly the most provocative painter in the contemporary Indian context." "Written by Khakhar's friend, the English painter Timothy Hyman, the book sets out to recreate the context in which Khakhar spent his early years, and that in which he reached maturity as a painter. The integration of the painter's work and the material and psychological circumstances of his life emerges as a leitmotif in the book, which brings the discussion on his work into the mid-90s."--BOOK JACKET

A year with Maggie's by Timothy Hyman( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by a passionate belief in the healing and uplifting powers of architecture, Maggies Cancer Caring Centres are quietly extraordinary spaces in the landscape of modern medicine. It was while suffering from advanced cancer that Maggie Keswick Jencks conceived the idea of a beautifully designed space offering free practical, emotional and social support to those affected by cancer, and, following her death in 1995, the first Maggies Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996. There are now 17 centres across the UK, designed by leading architects including Frank Gehry, Zahah Hadid and Richard Rogers. In September 2011 Timothy Hyman was asked to be artist in residence at the London Maggies Centre at the Charing Cross Hospital, and this book records his reflections on the people he met and the drawings and paintings he made there. Having himself been touched by cancer through the death of his twin brother twelve years earlier, Hyman sensitively captures the experiences of the centres users and the rhythms of life in this small haven away from the world. While not always an easy journey, The Maggies Year is an intimate meditation on the determination to not lose the joy of living in the fear of dying
