  • Delacroixby Isabella Alston

    TAJ Books International 2014; US$ 5.99

  • Turnerby Stéphanie Angoh

    Parkstone International 2013; US$ 3.50

    At fifteen, Turner was already exhibiting View of Lambeth. He soon acquired the reputation of an immensely clever watercolourist.

He travelled, first in his native land and... more...

  • Schieleby Stéphanie Angoh

    Parkstone International 2013; US$ 3.50

    Egon Schiele?s work is so distinctive that it resists categorisation. Admitted to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts at just sixteen, he was an extraordinarily precocious artist, whose consummate skill in the manipulation of line, above all, lent a taut expressivity to all his work. Profoundly convinced of his own significance as an artist, Schiele achieved... more...

  • The Signature Style of Frans Halsby Christopher D. M. Atkins

    Amsterdam University Press 2012; US$ 59.99

    The painters of the Dutch Golden Age have a reputation for favoring a dark, serious aesthetic and subdued, everyday scenes over the bravado of their Catholic counterparts. But in fact, Dutch paintings of this period often contain witty visual puns and a fierce vibrancy in their choice of color and subjects. No one more exemplifies this lushness... more...

  • Burne-Jonesby Patrick Bade

    Parkstone International 2011; US$ 3.50

    Burne-Jones? oeuvre can be understood as an attempt to create in paint a world of perfect beauty, as far removed from the Birmingham of his youth as possible. At that time Birmingham was a byword for the dire effects of unregulated capitalism ? a booming, industrial conglomeration of unimaginable ugliness and squalor. The two great French symbolist... more...

  • Burne-Jonesby Patrick Bade

    Parkstone International 2011; US$ 3.50

    Edward Coley Burne?Jones (Birmingham, 1833 ? Londres, 1898) Toute l'oeuvre de Burne-Jones peut être comprise comme une tentative de créer par la peinture un monde de beauté parfaite, aussi différent du Birmingham de son enfance que possible, un conglomérat industriel, mugissant, d'une laideur et d'une misère inimaginables. Les deux grands peintres... more...

  • Courbetby Patrick Bade

    Parkstone International 2014; US$ 5.00

    Ornans, Courbet?s birthplace, is near the beautiful valley of the Doubs River, and it was here as a boy, and later as a man, that he absorbed the love of landscape. He was by nature a revolutionary, a man born to oppose existing order and to assert his independence; he had that quality of bluster and brutality which makes the revolutionary count in... more...
