  • аннотация: Sir Henry Rider Haggard was an English writer of adventure novels set mostly in Africa, and a founder of the Lost World literary genre. This volume contains three famous novels by Haggard. The Mahatma and the Hare is the story of the selfcalled mahatma — a spiritual man who is able, when asleep, to view "The Great White Road" on which the souls of those recently departed enter heaven. Barbara Who Came Back is the story of Septimus Walrond, who was returning from a professional visit to a distant cottage upon the coast of East Anglia. His errand had been sad, to baptise the dying infant of a fisherman. And The Witch's Head is the second novel by Haggard, which he wrote just prior to King Solomon's Mines. Zulu magic comes to the British Fenlands, as the severed head of a sorcerer casts a spell from beyond the grave. The story sweeps from England to the South African setting.

Although he was an advocate and legal administrator by profession, Scott is most famous for his great literary works and activities in the Royal Highland Society. Loosely based on the life of the notorious pirate John Gow, the novel tells the tale of Captain Cleveland, his feud with young Mordaunt Mertoun, and their relationships with Mina and Brenda Troll. Of course, as the genre dictates, it is full of romance, danger, and wonderful adventures.

  • аннотация: The results of medieval engineering still surround us - cathedrals, castles, stone bridges, irrigation systems. However, the siege artillery, siege towers, temporary bridges, earthwork emplacements and underground mines used for war have left little trace behind them; and there is even less of the engineers themselves: the people behind the military engineering achievements. The evidence for this neglected group is studied here. The author begins by considering the evolution of military technology across centuries, and the impact of new technologies in the context of the economic and social developments which made them possible. He looks at how military engineers obtained their skills, and the possible link with scholastic scientific awareness. With the increased survival of government records from the middle ages, engineers acquire names and individuals can be identified. And the fifteenth century - the age of polymaths such as Leonardo da Vinci - saw a new type of literate military engineer, part of a recognized profession, but with its roots in a thousand years of historical development. Peter Purton, D Phil (Oxon), FSA, has written extensively on medieval fortifications and siege warfare; his publications include the comprehensive two volume history of the medieval siege (Boydell, 2010).

Jurgen Wettke has masterfully captured this ambivalence on film and preserved once in a lifetime moments of ephemeral beauty.

Anna Maria Giusti "The Gates of Paradise. From the Renaissance Workshop of Lorenzo Ghiberti to the Restoration Studio"

  • количество страниц: 224
  • аннотация: This is a superbly illustrated account of the history, importance, and painstaking restoration of Lorenz Ghiberti's "Gates of Paradise". After nearly thirty years of restoration, the gilt bronze doors that Lorenzo Ghiberti made for the Florence Baptistery between 1425 and 1452 are once again on show for the world to see. This masterpiece of 15th-century sculpture, which Michelangelo called the Gates of Paradise, has found a new home in the Museo dell'Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. This book presents the first images of the fully restored Gates, traces their long history, and offers a careful look at the Old Testament scenes on the bronze panels. The doors were conceived in the extraordinary creative climate that characterized early 15th-century Florence, where humanism, art, technical mastery, organizational skills, and wealth joined hands. The results were universally admired for centuries, but the fact that the doors were outdoors subjected them to the wear of time and attack by pollutants until they were removed and taken to safety in 1943 to protect them from bombing raids during World War II. The restoration by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure has brought to light the full beauty of the "Gates of Paradise" and made them legible again, allowing scholars and experts to re-examine their overall structure and re-evaluate the place of the "Gates of Paradise" in the development and progress of fifteenth-century art.

  • аннотация: In the years between 1890 and 1905, Paris witnessed a revolution in printmaking. Before this time, prints had primarily served reproductive or political ends, but, as the century came to a close, artistic quality became paramount, and printmaking blossomed into an autonomous art form. This gorgeously illustrated and accessibly written book looks at the circumstances in which this terrific new enthusiasm for prints unfolded; the principal players in its development; and the various printmaking techniques being used. Most modern French artists experimented with lithographs, etchings, or woodcuts, many of which were published in small editions intended for art connoisseurs and collectors. Their popularity, however, was not confined to these exclusive groups. Colorful prints designed by Pierre Bonnard, Paul Gauguin, Henri-Gabriel Ibels, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Edouard Vuillard, among others, were seen and admired all over Paris in the form of illustrated theater programs, sheet music, magazines, books, and street posters. Featuring highlights from the Van Gogh Museum, which houses a superb collection of prints from fin de siecle Paris, this enlightening volume shows how the most influential artists of the day turned their hands to making beautiful impressions - prints that were works of art in themselves.

  • ISBN: 9783791356990
  • год издания: 2017
  • переплет: твердый
  • количество страниц: 256
  • аннотация: Exploring an intriguing aspect of the artist’s work, this book examines Gustav Klimt’s fascination with the ancient world. Gustav Klimt’s 1907 publication of his illustrated edition of Lucian’s ancient work Dialogues of the Courtesans was the first time he exhibited his erotic art to the public, and it led to his denouncement by censors disturbed by the work’s graphic content. This volume revives Klimt’s masterful book, which pairs his erotic drawings with Wiener Werkst?tte design, and which arguably resulted in the Art Nouveau era’s most beautiful book. Klimt and Antiquity also compares the red- and black figure Attic vases dating from the 5th century with Klimt’s art. It presents Klimt’s antiquity-inspired art as a dialogue between contemporary and ancient art, between genders, and between women’s roles in times of antiquity and modernity. Essays explore Klimt’s interest in ancient art; the ancient role of the courtesan; and the phenomenon of the Greek symposium as fertile ground for Greek art.

  • аннотация: Kinesthesia: Latin American Kinetic Art, 1954-1969 examines the influential and visually stunning work of South American kinetic artists. While Southern California was becoming the North American epicenter for Light and Space art in the 1960s, separate yet closely related technical experiments had been unfolding in a handful of major cities of South America, as well as in Paris, the European center for kinetic art. Kinesthesia highlights the broad differences that emerged among the two principal South American centers of activity: Argentina, where kinetic art grew out of local debates about painting; and Venezuela, where pioneering notions of modern architecture stimulated a synthesis of art and design. Featured in this volume are kinetic sculptures and installations by Jesu s Rafael Soto, Julio Le Parc, Carlos Cruz- Diez, Martha Boto, and others, as well as essays that explore the history of this movement, examine the artists' reception by European and American audiences in the context of the Cold War, and link their achievements to 21st-century artists and their work.

In contrast, the work of Taizo Kuroda is revered not for its purity or precision, but for the luminous warmth and joyful asymmetry that makes his work both approachable and appealing to the senses. This monograph celebrates Kuroda's most beautiful creations - vessels that transcend their functionality to become works of art. Kuroda's unique approach to glazing, his love of shape and silhouette, and his willingness to let the potter's hands become part of the piece all serve to make his art some of the most revered and sought after in the world.
