Shanzhai : deconstruction in Chinese by Byung-Chul Han( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shanzhai is a Chinese neologism that means "fake," originally coined to describe knock-off cell phones marketed under such names as Nokir and Samsing. These cell phones were not crude forgeries but multifunctional, stylish, and as good as or better than the originals. Shanzhai has since spread into other parts of Chinese life, with shanzhai books, shanzhai politicians, shanzhai stars. There is a shanzhai Harry Potter: Harry Potter and the Porcelain Doll, in which Harry takes on his nemesis Yandomort. In the West, this would be seen as piracy, or even desecration, but in Chinese culture, originals are continually transformed - deconstructed. In this volume in the Untimely Meditations series, Byung-Chul Han traces the thread of deconstruction, or "decreation," in Chinese thought, from ancient masterpieces that invite inscription and transcription to Maoism - "a kind a shanzhai Marxism," Han writes.Han discusses the Chinese concepts of quan, or law, which literally means the weight that slides back and forth on a scale, radically different from Western notions of absoluteness; zhen ji, or original, determined not by an act of creation but by unending process; xian zhan, or seals of leisure, affixed by collectors and part of the picture's composition; fuzhi, or copy, a replica of equal value to the original; and shanzhai. The Far East, Han writes, is not familiar with such "pre-deconstructive" factors as original or identity. Far Eastern thought begins with deconstruction

Sylvette, Sylvette, Sylvette : Picasso and the model by Christoph Grunenberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Pablo Picasso's most important muses is the subject of this diverse and beautiful collection of drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, and ceramics. She was known as 'the girl with the ponytail' and her image has become one of the art world's most iconic. Sylvette David was a shy girl when she met Picasso on the Côte d'Azur in the spring of 1954. For the artist, Sylvette represented the ideal beauty of the time and she was his model for numerous works that covered nearly every aspect of his oeuvre. This book brings together the series of more than fifty masterpieces culled from museums and private collections from around the world. It further provides a unique insight into Picasso's art of the 1950s and the culture of the time."--Provided by publisher

Praised and ridiculed : French painting 1820-1880 by Kunsthaus (Zürich)( Book )

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

In the juxtaposition of so-called 'Salon painters' and 'Reformers of painting' this volume offers a discriminating look at the controversial styles in French painting between 1820 and 1880 and the developments within the traditional genres. Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism -- these are still the most important stylistic labels which acted as slogans for French painting during the 19th century. At that time Delacroix, Courbet, Manet and many others left the 'straight and narrow' of painting, the academic-neo-classical manner. Highly controversial at the time, today these painters are celebrated worldwide as precursors of Modernism. The situation is very different when it comes to the Salon painters like Meissonier, Cabanel, Gérôme and Bouguereau, who were highly regarded at the time. Today they have been consigned to the fringes, especially in the German-speaking region -- unjustifiably, because they play an outstanding role with regard to our understanding of developments in art at the time.

Color and light : the Neo-impressionist Henri-Edmond Cross by Henri Edmond Cross( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1891 Henri-Edmond Cross was one of the first painters who decided to settle down on the coast of southern France. As Maurice Denis remembered: 'In this northerner's pale eyes there shone all the brilliant light of the Midi.' Surrounded by gloriously beautiful nature, Cross devoted himself to his art, which attests to a marvelous conquest of color. His development leads from the austere portraits of his early period to intensely colored nudes depicted in leisurely abandon in Mediterranean landscapes. This catalog retraces Cross's career in its entirety, focusing on the artist's growing command of color in its astoundingly infinite variations and highlighting the painter's role in the liberation of color at the dawn of the twentieth century."

ALP by Olaf Unverzart( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An accomplished young photographer, Olaf Unverzart, takes on an age-old subject and transforms the way we see the Alps. Serious Alpine photography began in the middle of the 19th century by photographers who lugged large plate cameras into inaccessible regions to produce some of the most spectacular images of their time. Nearly two hundred years later, Olaf Unverzart has photographed the Alps and given them a 21st century perspective. Disappearing glaciers, the steeply inclined asphalt roads of the Tour de France, machinery crushed by avalanches, or huge cement fortifications imbedded in rock and defying nature--Unverzart's large-format images focus on the marks humankind leaves behind when attempting to master nature. He also documents nature's own power--in the form of avalanches and mudflows--when it overcomes these misguided efforts. Much more than another collection of nature photographs, this volume is a powerful reminder of the ramifications of human intervention toward Earth's most majestic features--a story told without ideology or didactics, through the eyes of a keen and hopeful observer

Peter Paul Rubens, a touch of brilliance : oil sketches and related works from the State Hermitage Museum and the Courtauld Institute Gallery by Peter Paul Rubens( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two celebrated and complementary collections of Rubens' sketches - in the Courtauld Institute of Art in London and The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg - are brought together to form the basis of this study of the artist's work." "Often regarded as one of the most compelling and remarkable aspects of the artist's work, Rubens' oil sketches reveal the genesis of many of his most important commissions. This book, published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Hermitage Rooms, Courtauld Institute of Art, focuses on Rubens' projects where the Hermitage and Courtauld holdings are exceptionally rich, including the ceiling of the Banqueting House at Whitehall, and the now lost ceiling of the Jesuit church in Antwerp. By bringing together preparatory material from a number of major commissions this book aims to provide a concentrated account of the role of the oil sketch in Rubens' work."--Jacket
