  • William Blake and the Art of Engravingby Mei-Ying Sung

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.95

    Sung closely examines William Blake’s extant engraved copper plates and arrives at a new interpretation of his working process.

  • Goyaby Victor I. Stoichita

    Reaktion Books 2000; US$ 29.95

    This intriguing book on Goya concentrates on the closing years of the eighteenth century as a neglected milestone in his life.

    Parkstone International 2011; US$ 7.00

    Whistler (Lowell, 1834 – Londres 1903) Whistler surgit à un moment crucial de l'histoire de l'art et il joue un rôle de précurseur. Il a, comme les Impressionnistes, la volonté d'imposer ses idées. Son oeuvre se déroule en quatre périodes. Dans une première période de recherche, l'artiste est influencé par le réalisme de Courbet et par le japonisme.... more...
