  • 鲁本斯by Jp ???; ? ?

    Parkstone International 2013; US$ 3.50

    鲁本斯,巴洛克绘画繁荣时期最伟大的艺术巨匠,从意大利文艺复兴中汲取了所有对其有用的精华,从而建立起了自己的风格。这个来自北方的艺术家希望并且实现了将佛兰德艺术与拉丁艺术融合起来,却不失自己热情四溢的个性与不断探索的想象力以及作为最伟大色彩大师的醉人发现。他的风格以对人体形态的绝妙把握和对华丽的明亮色彩极为丰富的运用而著名。对自己理智绝对自信的鲁本斯像个深受信任的使者带着浮夸的举止旅行于各个国家之间,因此也习惯了宫廷的生活。如果说米开朗基罗是激情澎湃的代表,那么鲁本斯也可以被认作是描绘生活喜悦和生机的高产代表。 more...

  • Botticelliby Isabella Alston

    TAJ Books International 2014; US$ 5.99

    Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, better known as simply Sandro Botticelli, was born in Florence, Italy, probably in or around 1445. Serendipitously winning a high-profile commission from the Florentine court, he was catapulted to notoriety as wealthy patrons, in particular the Medici family, hired him to create works that celebrated their lives... more...

  • Delacroixby Isabella Alston

    TAJ Books International 2014; US$ 5.99

    Eugène Delacroix was highly influential in the 19th-century Romanticism art movement and is considered by many art historians to be the most important of the Romantic painters. Delacroix is often attributed with refining Romanticism, not only aesthetically but philosophically, as his work influenced not only art, but also literature. One of Delacroix’s... more...

  • 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. A disciple of Girtin and Cozens, he showed in his choice and presentation of theme a picturesque imagination which seemed to mark him out for a brilliant career as an illustrator. 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...

    Les Demoiselles d'Avignon: fünf junge Damen, die die moderne Kunst für immer verändern sollten. Gesichter, die man gleichzeitig von vorn und im Profil erkennt, verwinkelte Körper, deren üppige Formen hinter asymmetrischen Linien verschwinden - mit diesem Gemälde revolutionierte Picasso die Geschichte der Malerei. 1907 war der Kubismus geboren.Kubistische... 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 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...

  • 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 symbolistes... more...
