  • Madonnenby Klaus Carl

    Parkstone International 2014; US$ 5.00

    Zur Zeit der Renaissance porträtierten die italienischen Maler traditionell die Frauen ihrer Mäzene als Madonnen. Oft stellten sie sie schöner dar als sie in Wirklichkeit waren. Über Jahrhunderte hinweg wurde die Jungfrau Maria in religiösen Gemälden als milde und beschützende Mutter Gottes gemalt. Mit der Zeit verlor die Jungfrau allerdings viele... more...

  • Imaginary Gamesby Chris Bateman

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 18.99

    Can games be art? When film critic Roger Ebert claimed in 2010 that videogames could never be art it was seen as a snub by many gamers. But from the perspective of philosophy of art this question was topsy turvey, since according to one of the most influential theories of representation all art is a game . Kendall Walton's prop theory explains... more...

  • Water and Artby David Clarke

    Reaktion Books 2012; US$ 35.00

    Restless, protean, fluid, evanescent?despite being a challenge to represent visually, water has gained a striking significance in the art of the twentieth century. This may be due to the fact that it allows for a range of metaphorical meanings, many of which are particularly appropriate to the modern age. Water is not merely a subject of contemporary... more...

  • Erotische Kunst aus Asienby Hans-Jürgen Döpp

    Parkstone International 2014; US$ 5.00

    Mit Ingres' Türkischem Bad von 1863 ist die Frau des Ostens für viele im Westen zu einem Symbol für eine nie erreichbare, verbotene Lust geworden. Seereisende, Abenteurer und einfache Wanderer aus Europa sind über Jahrhunderte dem exotischen Reiz der asiatischen Frau verfallen; ihrer angenehmen Andersartigkeit, der sanften Blässe ihrer Haut. So kam... more...

  • Art and Animalsby Giovanni Aloi

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 29.00

    ?Art is continually haunted by the animal,? wrote Deleuze and Guattari. Over the past two decades, animals have quite literally invaded the gallery space, from Joseph Beuy?s co-habiting with a coyote, Janis Kounelli?s instillation of live horses, Damien Hirst?s shark in formaldehyde to Mark Dion?s natural history displays and Marco Evaristti?s ?goldfish... more...

  • Le Christ dans l?artby Ernest Renan

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 9.95

    La figure du Christ a, depuis toujours, inspiré les artistes. Déjà, dans les catacombes de l'Antiquité romaine, son portrait apparaissait sur les fresques murales. Plus tard, la vie du Christ se découpe dans les vitraux des églises gothiques ou se dessine sur les toiles des artistes de la Renaissance. Cependant, la figuration du Seigneur ne répond... more...

  • Encyclopædia Eroticaby Hans-Jürgen Döpp

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 9.95

    Gibt es einen besseren Zeitpunkt, um ein so voluminöses Werk über die Erotik zu publizieren als die ersten Jahre in einem neuen Jahrtausend? Die ?Political Correctness? ist schließlich ein Credo und Frauenbilder sind wieder Ikonen. Während der vergangenen Jahrhunderte bewunderte man Frauen als Göttinnen oder Jungfrauen ? heute sind es die Mannequins... more...

  • Homosexuality in Artby James Smalls

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 9.95

    This book is not a panegyric of homosexuality. It is a scientific study led by Professor James Smalls who teaches art history in the prestigious University of Maryland, Baltimore. Abandoning all classical clichés and sociological approaches, the author highlights the sensibility particular to homosexuals. This book examines the process of creation... more...

  • Iconsby Nikodim Pavlovich Kondakov

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 9.95

    Icon painting has reached its zenith in Ukraine between the 11th and 18th centuries. This art is appealing because of its great openness to other influences ? the obedience to the rules of Orthodox Christianity in its early stages, the borrowing from Roman heritage or later to the Western breakthroughs ? combined with a never compromised assertion... more...
