  • Kahloby Gerry Souter

    Parkstone International 2014; US$ 5.00

    Behind Frida Kahlo?s portraits, lies the story of both her life and work. It is precisely this combination that draws the reader in. Frida?s work is a record of her life, and rarely can we learn so much about an artist from what she records inside the picture frame. Frida Kahlo truly is Mexico?s gift to the history of art. She was just eighteen years... more...

  • Kahloby Gerry Souter

    Detrás de los retratos de Frida Kahlo se ocultan tanto la historia de su vida como la de su obra. Es precisamente esta combinación la que atrae al espectador. La obra de Frida es un testimonio de su vida. Pocas veces se puede aprender tanto acerca de un artista con sólo contemplar lo que él inscribe dentro del marco de sus cuadros. Frida Kahlo es sin... more...

    Aquellos que han tenido la oportunidad de sostener entre sus manos un manuscrito medieval, no habrán podido evitar verse sorprendidos por la sensación de entrar en contacto directo con un pasado remoto.

  • Illuminated Manuscriptsby Tamara Woronowa; Andrej Sterligow

    Parkstone International 2014; US$ 5.00

    Those who have had the chance to hold a medieval manuscript in their hands cannot fail to have been impressed by the feeling of being in touch with a long-passed epoch. Back when a book was a true handicraft and every copy the result of a laborious process, the object was more a work of art than a volatile commercial product. The Mega Square Illuminated... more...

  • Kahloby Gerry Souter

    Parkstone International 2014; US$ 5.00

    In die Porträts der Frida Kahlo sind sowohl ihr Leben als auch ihr Wirken selbst eingeflossen. Genau diese Mischung zieht den Betrachter in ihren Bann. Kahlos Werk läuft wie der Film ihres Lebens vor dem Auge des Betrachters ab, und nur selten lässt sich in Bilderrahmen mehr über Künstler erfahren, als es bei ihren Werken der Fall ist. Mit achtzehn... more...

  • Haec figura demonstratby Jeffrey F. Hamburger

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 70.00

    The diagrammatic mode is an important feature of medieval religious art. This book examines one of the most spectacular examples, the series of radial diagrams accompanying the manuscripts of ?De missarum mysteriis? one of the most influential commentaries on the liturgy of the Mass, written in Rome between 1195 and 1197 by Lothar of Segni (ca. 1160?1216),... more...
