  • Adelsbilder von der Antike bis zur Gegenwartby Peter Scholz; Johannes Süßmann

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 70.00

    "Adelsbilder" - das sind die Bildwerke, die der Adel von sich erschaffen ließ. Das sind die Sozialbezüge, die er damit herstellte. Und das sind die Vorstellungen, die wir uns heute von ihm machen. Wie diese drei Adelsbilder zusammenhängen, zeigt der Band an Beispielen von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart mit einem Ausblick auch auf außereuropäische Gesellschaften. more...

  • Das amerikanische Künstlermilieu in Venedigby Hanne Borchmeyer

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 210.00

    Gegenstand des Werkes ist die Darstellung und Analyse des amerikanischen Künstlermilieus in Venedig und seiner Entwicklung von 1880 bis zur Gegenwart. Dabei geht es weniger um eine Zusammenstellung von Einzelbiographien der Amerikaner, die sich über diesen Zeitraum in der Lagunenstadt niederließen, als um die Untersuchung der Kreise, die sie in Venedig... more...

  • Hans Holbeinby Pascal Griener; Oskar Bätschmann

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 29.00

     Hans Holbein the Younger was the leading artist of the Northern Renaissance, yet his life and work are not nearly as well-documented as those of his contemporaries Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo. That omission has been remedied with this acclaimed study by Oskar Bätschmann and Pascal Griener. Hans Holbein chronicles the life and oeuvre of... more...

  • Titian and the End of the Venetian Renaissanceby Tom Nichols

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 35.00

    Titian is best known for paintings that embodied the tradition of the Venetian Renaissance—but how Venetian was the artist himself? In this study, Tom Nichols probes the tensions between the individualism of Titian’s work and the conservative mores of the city, showing how his art undermined the traditional self-suppressing approach to painting in... more...

  • Looking at the Overlookedby Norman Bryson

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 24.95

    In this, the only up-to-date critical work on still life painting in any language, Norman Bryson analyzes the origins, history and logic of 'still life', one of the most enduring forms of Western painting. The first essay is devoted to Roman wall-painting while in the second the author surveys a major segment in the history of still life, from seventeenth-century... more...

  • Peter Lanyonby Andrew Causey

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 24.95

    British painter Peter Lanyon transformed the art of landscape, rescuing it from picturesque depictions of the English countryside and resituating it as an art form capable of expressing radical ideas. The old European tradition of landscape—mostly concerned with ownership and leisure and not the daily life of the working class—was of no interest to... more...

  • Edouard Manetby Sandra Forty

    TAJ Books International 2013; US$ 3.99

    Many art historians consider Edouard Manet to be the father of modern art. Although often cited alongside the Impressionists, he was not a member of their group and never exhibited in their Salon des Réfusées. Instead, he pioneered a path between realism and impressionism, choosing contemporary subjects and composing them in a truly modern... more...

  • Hans Memlingby Sandra Forty

    TAJ Books International 2013; US$ 3.99

    Hans Memling was one of the greatest artists working in northern Europe in the late medieval period. He made his home and his name in the city of Bruges, Belgium, where he lived and worked for almost 30 years. Often described as a Flemish Primitive, he almost singlehandedly transformed Bruges into the most prestigious location for northern European... more...

  • Seuratby Sandra Forty

    TAJ Books International 2014; US$ 3.99

    Georges Seurat was one of the most important Post-Impressionist painters to lead the way toward the modern era in art. He is best known for developing pointillism, an exacting and time-consuming technique whereby tiny dots of paint are combined to create a composition. His work is stylized and considered, in complete contrast to the impetuous spontaneity... more...
