  • 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...

  • Turnerby Stéphanie Angoh

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

  • Lempickaby Patrick Bade

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 9.95

    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...
