In primul ai facut un "sumar" , dar in al doilea nu. Te rog frumos, daca poti, fa-l si pentru al doilea fisier.


Cum spuneam, imaginile le-am adunat din diverse surse ( net / PC-urile prietenilor / torrente / scan-uri ). Marea majoritate nu au fost insotite nici macar de informatiile elementare : autor – titlu – muzeu.

Mi-ar fi placut sa pot face o prezentare a fiecarui muzeu / autor si cate un cartus tehnic pentru fiecare tablou, dar imi este imposibil ( mi-e destul de greu sa evit chiar si dubleurile ): de exemplu albumul “Luvru” va contine 800 exponate !

Deci sunt obligat sa aplic principiul “decat de loc … bine si asa”. Oricum, frumusetea unui tablou sta in pictura propriu-zisa si nu neaparat in semnatura autorului sau sediul muzeului. Parerea mea !

Sunt constient ca denumirea de “album” este exagerata. Am folosit-o ca pe o invitatie catre toti pasionatii de pe forum de a-si shara colectiile.

Nu ma opresc !  =D

Ashley Bassie - [Expressionism (Art of Century)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844844579 | 2008 | PDF | 200 pages | 63 MB

"Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Emil Nolde, E. L. Kirchner, Paul Klee, Franz Marc as well as the Austrians Oskar Kokoschka and Egon Schiele were among the generation of highly individual artists who contributed to the vivid and often controversial new movement in early twentieth-century Germany and Austria: Expressionism. This publication introduces their work and places it within the cultural contexts and wider movements of the period. The author, independent art historian Ashley Bassie, explains how Expressionist art led the way to a new, intense, evocative treatment of psychological, emotional and social themes in the early twentieth century. The book examines the developments of Expressionism and its key works, highlighting the often intensely subjective imagery and the aspirations and conflicts from which it emerged while focusing precisely on the artists of the movement.".




Charles Bayet [Byzantine Art (Art of Century Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844846202 | 2009 | PDF | 200 pages | 95 MB

"For more than a millennium, from its creation in 330 A.D. until its fall in 1453, the Byzantine Empire was a cradle of artistic effervescence that we are only beginning to rediscover. Endowed with the rich heritage of Roman, Eastern and Christian cultures, Byzantine artists developed an architectural and pictorial tradition, marked by symbolism, whose influence extended far beyond the borders of the Empire. Today, Italy, Northern Africa, and the Near East preserve the vestiges of this sophisticated artistic tradition, with all of its mystical and luminous beauty. The magnificence of the palaces, churches, paintings, enamels, ceramics and mosaics from this civilisation guarantees Byzantine art's powerful influence and timelessness."



Eric Shanes - [The Life and Masterworks of Salvador Dali (Temporis Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844848183 | 2011 | PDF | 256 pages | 49,8 MB

"As a one of the foremost painters of the 20th century, Dalí, like Picasso and Warhol, can boast of having overturned the art of the previous century and directed contemporary art toward its present incarnation. As irrational as he was surrealist, this genius diverted objects from their original meanings, plunging them into the acid of his constantly churning imagination. A megalomaniac and an artist who above all understood the force of marketing and publicity, Dalí disorients the viewer in order to draw him into the artist’s world. On his canvases, images and colours crash together to express and mock certain ideas, creating a subversive eroticism that taps into the subconscious of the avid voyeurs that we are.

The author, Eric Shanes, explores the twists and turns of Dalí’s mad genius, commenting on the masterpieces of the painter so as to show the diversity and scope of his talent, leaving the reader blown away and bewitched by this Prince of Metamorphosis. This work opens up the sweet, mad universe of this megalomaniac genius and invites us to let ourselves be overcome … Dalí is, first and foremost, an absolute."



Evgueny Kovtun - [Russian Avant-Garde (Art of Century)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1859956785 | 2007 | PDF | 199 pages | 44 MB

"The Russian Avant-Garde was born at the turn of the 20th century in pre-revolutionary Russia. Intellectual and cultural turmoil had then reached a peak and provided fertile soil for the formation of the movement. For many artists influenced by European art, the movement represented a way of liberating themselves from the social and aesthetic constraints of the past. It was these Avant-Garde artists who, through their immense creativity, gave birth to abstract art, thereby elevating Russian culture to a modern level. Such painters as Kandinsky, Malevitch, Gontcharova, Larionov, and Tatline, to name but a few, had a definitive impact on 20th-century art."



Guillaume Apollinaire, Dorothea Eimert - [Cubism (Art of Century)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844847497 | 2010 | PDF | 200 pages | 65 MB

"Les Demoiselles d'Avignon: five young women that changed modern art forever. Faces seen simultaneously from the front and in profile, angular bodies whose once voluptuous feminine forms disappear behind asymmetric lines-with this painting, Picasso revolutionised the entire history of painting. Cubism was thus born in 1907. Transforming natural forms into cylinders and cubes, painters like Juan Gris and Robert Delaunay, driven by Braque and Picasso, imposed a new vision upon the world, in total opposition to the principles of the Impressionists. Largely diffused in Europe, Cubism developed rapidly in successive phases that brought art history to all the richness of the 20th century: from the futurism of Boccioni to the abstraction of Kandinsky, from the suprematism of Malevich to the constructivism of Tatlin.

Linking the core text of Guillaume Apollinaire with the studies of Dr. Dorothea Eimert, this work offers a new interpretation of modernity's crucial moment, and permits the reader to rediscover, through their biographies, the principal representatives of the movement.".   



Nathalia Brodskaia - [Post-Impressionism (Art of Century Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844847462 | 2010 | PDF | 200 pages | 74 MB

"While Impressionism marked the first steps toward modern painting by revolutionising an artistic medium stifled by academic conventions, Post-Impressionism, even more revolutionary, completely liberated colour and opened it to new, unknown horizons. Anchored in his epoch, relying on the new chromatic studies of Michel Eugène Chevreul, Georges Seurat transcribed the chemist's theory of colours into tiny points that created an entire image. With his heavy strokes, Van Gogh illustrated the midday sun, while Cézanne renounced perspective. Rich in its variety and in the singularity of its artists, Post-Impressionism was a passage taken by all the well-known figures of 20th century painting - it is here presented, for the great pleasure of the reader, by Nathalia Brodskaïa.".

Nathalia Brodskaya - [Symbolism (Art of Century)] PDF
English | ISBN-10: 1859956777 | 2007 | PDF | 199 pages | 51,6 MB

Symbolism appeared in Europe and the United States between the 1880s and the early 20th century. The Symbolists, fascinated with ancient mythology, attempted to escape the reign of rational thought imposed by science. They wished to transcend the world of the visible and the rational in order to attain the world of pure thought, constantly flirting with the limits of the unconscious.   



Robert de la Sizeranne - [Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (Art of Century)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844844595 | 2008 | PDF | 200 pages | 61 MB

In Victorian England, with the country swept up in the Industrial Revolution, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, close to William Morris Arts and Crafts movement, yearned for a return to bygone values. Wishing to revive the pure and noble forms of the Italian Renaissance, the major painters of the circle such as John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones, in opposition to the academicism of the time, favoured realism and biblical themes over the affected canons of the nineteenth century. This work, with its captivating text and rich illustrations, describes with enthusiasm this singular movement which notably inspired the followers of Art Nouveau and Symbolism.



Victoria Charles - [Gothic Art (Art of Century] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844844617 | 2008 | PDF| 200 pages | 64 MB

Gothic art finds its roots in the powerful architecture of the cathedrals of northern France. It is a medieval art movement that developed all across Europe for more than 200 years. Leaving Roman roundish forms behind, the architects started using flying buttress and pointed arches to open cathedrals to the daylight. Period of great economic and social changes, the gothic period also saw the development of a new iconography celebrating the Holy Mary, at the opposite to the fearful iconography of dark Roman times. Full of rich changes in all the different arts (architecture, sculpture, painting, etc.), gothic gave way to the Italian renaissance and international gothic.   



Gaston Migeon - [Art of Islam (Temporis Collection)]  PDF
English | ISBN: 184484658X, 1780429932 | 2009 | PDF | 256 pages | 94 MB

Islamic art is not the art of a nation nor of a people, but that of a religion: Islam. Spreading from the Arabian Peninsula, the proselyte believers conquered, in a few centuries, a territory spreading from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. Multicultural and multi-ethnical, this polymorphic and highly spiritual art, in which all representation of Man and God was prohibited, developed canons and various motives of great decorative value. Thorough and inventive, these artists expressed their beliefs by creating monumental masterpieces such as the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, the Taj Mahal in Agra or the Alhambra in Granada, architectural works in which one recognises the stylisation of motives of the Muslim ceramics. Lively and coloured, Islamic art mirrors the richness of people whose common denominator was the belief in one singular truth: the absolute necessity of creating works whose beauty equaled their respect for God   



[The Art of Medieval Spain AD500-1200 (Art Ebook)] PDF
English | ISBN: 0870996878 | 1993 | PDF | 374 pages | 81,3 Mb

Spanish art of the Middle Ages, a period that has been relatively unexplored in the English-speaking world, is examined here in detail. This publication accompanies a major exhibition for which more than 150 sculptures, architectural elements, paintings, textiles, and objects for everyday and ceremonial use have been gathered from museums and private collections in Spain, the United States, and Europe and Africa. Each work is illustrated (most in full color) and is discussed in texts that will be of interest to both the general reader and the scholar.
The volume opens with three essays by leading scholars that traverse the eventful world of medieval Spain, presenting themes that will prove important throughout the centuries from 500 to 1200. The immense influence of topography on Iberian history is limned, and the ongoing impact of Christianity and Islam on the peninsula is discussed in vivid terms. Of great interest is the survey of Spains cultural ties to Europe and to the Middle East. This wide-ranging introduction is followed by four sections: Visigothic Spain, Islamic Spain, the Kingdom of Asturias and Mozarabic Spain, and Romanesque Spain. Each opens with one or more distinguished essays, richly illustrated with photographs of architecture and works of art.



Nikodim Pavlovich Kondakov - [Icons (Temporis Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844845583 , 17804292582008 | 2008 | PDF | 256 Pages | 88 MB

This work analyzes the evolution of iconic art from its beginning in the Byzantine period, until the time of the Russian Empire. This work is for specialists and students as it is written by one of the world s leading authorities on early Christian iconography. Icons are a fundamental element in art history, it is therefore crucial to understand how this imagery started and how it evolved through the centuries. As there are very few books on the subject, Icons stands out and is bound to become a reference in the subject.



Victoria Charles - [Romanesque Art (Art of Century)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844844609 | 2008 | PDF | 200 pages | 103 MB

In art history, the term Romanesque art distinguishes the period between the eleventh and the thirteenth centuries. This era showed a great diversity of regional schools each with their own unique style. In architecture as well as in sculpture, Romanesque art is marked by its raw forms. Through its rich iconography and captivating text, this work reclaims the importance of this art which is today often overshadowed by the later Gothic style.

Victoria Charles - [Rococo (Art of Century Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844847403 | 2010 | PDF | 200 pages | 64 MB

Deriving from the French word rocaille, in reference to the curved forms of shellfish, and the Italian barocco, the French created the term Rococo. Appearing at the beginning of the 18th century, it rapidly spread to the whole of Europe. Extravagant and light, Rococo responded perfectly to the spontaneity of the aristocracy of the time. In many aspects, this art was linked to its predecessor, Baroque, and it is thus also referred to as late Baroque style. While artists such as Tiepolo, Boucher and Reynolds carried the style to its apogee, the movement was often condemned for its superficiality. In the second half of the 18th century, Rococo began its decline. At the end of the century, facing the advent of Neoclassicism, it was plunged into obscurity. It had to wait nearly a century before art historians could restore it to the radiance of its golden age, which is rediscovered in this work by Klaus H. Carl and Victoria Charles.


Edmond De Goncourt - [Utamaro (Temporis Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1859956823, 1780429282 | 2008 | PDF | 256 pages | 70,8 MB

If sensuality had a name, it would be without a doubt Utamaro. Delicately underlining the Garden of Pleasures that once constituted Edo, Utamaro, by the richness of his fabrics, the long necks of swans, the mysterious looks, evoke in a few lines the sensual pleasure of the Orient.
In his Life of Utamaro, Edmond de Goncourt, in exquisite language and with analytical skill, interpreted the meaning of the form of Japanese art which found its chief expression in the use of the wooden block for colour printing. To glance appreciatively at the work of both artist and author is the motive of this present sketch. The Ukiyo-e* print, despised by the haughty Japanese aristocracy, became the vehicle of art for the common people of Japan, and the names of the artists who aided in its development are familiarly quoted in every studio, whilst the classic painters of Tosa and Kano are comparatively rarely mentioned.
The consensus of opinion in Japan during the lifetime of Utamaro agrees with the verdict of de Goncourt: no artist was more popular than Utamaro. His atelier was besieged by editors giving orders, and in the country his works were eagerly sought after, while those of his famous contemporary, Toyokuni, were but little known. In the Barque of Utamaro, a famous surimono*, the title of which forms a pretty play upon words, maro being the Japanese for "vessel", the seal of supremacy is set upon the artist. He was essentially the painter of women, and though de Goncourt sets forth his astonishing versatility, he yet entitles his work Utamaro, le Peintre des Maisons vertes.


Colta Ives - [Vincent Van Gogh: The Drawings (Metropolitan Museum of Art Series)] PDF
English | ISBN: 030010720X, 978-0300107203 | 2005 | PDF | 392 pages | 90 MB

"Drawing is the root of everything," van Gogh wrote to his brother, and, as Ives explains, his drawings, like his justifiably famous letters, were "regular and faithful records of what was on his mind." Commanding in their vigor and acuity, stunning in their directness, van Gogh's drawings are as magnificent in their way as his paintings. It is a boon, therefore, to have nearly 400 line drawings and watercolors gathered in one comprehensive volume. A passionate landscape artist, van Gogh discerned the beauty of even the most modest terrains. You sense grass growing, flowers exhaling fragrance, leaves lifting on a breeze. Then, in winter scenes, he conveys a potent dormancy as bare branches sketch a calligraphy of longing against a brooding sky. His portraits of working people are also evocative, deeply empathic, and respectful. But for all the vitality of his line, loneliness pools in every shadow, and even as van Gogh celebrates fecundity and fortitude, death is ever present. Yet because his attunement to beauty is a form of faith, his drawings trace the unceasing whirl and fusion of life and embody the promise that nothing is truly lost but, rather, transformed.

Albert Kostenevitch - [The Nabis (Art of Century Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844846237 | 2009 | PDF | 200 pages | 66 MB

Pierre Bonnard was the leader of the group of post-impressionist painters who called themselves "the Nabis," based on the Hebrew word for "prophet". Influenced by Odilon Redon, Puvis de Chavannes, popular imagery and Japanese woodblock printing, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton and Denis (to name the most prominent) revolutionised the spirit of decorative technique during one of the richest periods in French painting. Although the increasing individualism of their works often threatened to weaken their unity, the Nabis were above all a group of close friends. The artwork presented in this book - varying between Bonnard's guilelessness, Vuillard's ornamental and mysterious works, Denis's soft languor and Vallotton's almost-bitter roughness - plunges us into the deep source of their creative gifts.


Andrea Bayer - [Art and Love in Renaissance Italy] PDF
ISBN: 158839005 | 2008 | PDF | 394 pages | English | 89.48 Mb

Many famous Italian Renaissance artworks were made to celebrate love and marriage. They were the pinnacles of a tradition "dating from the early Renaissance" of commemorating betrothal, marriage, and the birth of a child by commissioning extraordinary objects or exchanging them as gifts. This important volume is the first to examine the entire range of works to which Renaissance rituals of love and marriage gave rise and makes a major contribution to our understanding of Renaissance art in its broader cultural context. Some 140 works of art, dating from about 1400 to 1600, are discussed by a distinguished group of scholars and are reproduced in full color.


Ernest Renan - [Christ in Art (Temporis Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844848094 | 2010 | PDF | 256 pages | 73 MB

Since the dawn of Christianity, artists have been fascinated and stirred by the figure of Christ. His likeness appears in frescoes on the walls of catacombs that date from Roman times; he is featured in the stained glass windows of Gothic churches; and he can be found in various forms in today’s pop culture.The Biblical Saviour is not a static, immaterial deity: Christ’s mortal birth, unusual life and dramatic death make him an accessible subject for religious and secular artists alike. Whether they show the spirituality of God Incarnate or the earthly characteristics of a flesh-and-blood man, artistic depictions of Christ are the most controversial, moving or inspirational examples of religious art. This richly illustrated book explores the various ways that Christ is rendered in art, from Cimabue’s Nativity scenes and Fra Angelico’s paintings of the Crucifixion to the provocative portraits of Salvador Dalí and Andres Serrano. Author Joseph Lewis French guides the reader through the most iconic representations of Christ in art – tender or graphic, classical or bizarre, these images of the Messiah reveal the diverse roles of the Son of God in the social milieus and personal lives of the artists.

Daniel Wildenstein - [Monet's Years at Giverny: Beyond Impressionism] PDF
English | 1978 | ISBN: 0870991744/0810909790 | PDF | 280 pages | 33.12 MB

A study of the years spent at Giverny, by the artist Claude Monet (1840-1926).
Unlike most art books, this small volume has been in print continuously since 1978 & when you read it, it isn't hard to see why: superb reproductions and an extremely elegant design (plus its small size - very unusual in art publishing) offer the reader a wonderful experience wandering in Monet's vision of a carefully constructed alternate reality. In Monet's Giverny, natural forms respond instantly to light. The images produce a peculiar sense of floating in the viewer - many of the pictures lack a horizon line or any indication of where the viewer is in relation to the picture. As a result, we seem to hover in flight, poised above a constantly shifting panorama of woods, water, fields, and lilies. Interestingly, no human figures are visible in these works (Monet was never really a figure painter) producing a peculiar sensation of isolation and contemplation in the spectator - we wander through this magical land alone, or with whatever companion we desire. A superlative achievement which has found few imitators in the world of art publishing.



Esther Selsdon - [Egon Schiele (Best Of Collection)] PDF
English | 2011 | ISBN: 1844849082 | 200 pages | PDF | 40.30 MB

Egon Schiele (1890-1918) is one of the great Expressionist painters. He was taught by Gustav Klimt, and at a very early age, like his Viennese Secession predecessors broke with the traditions of official Austrian art. His numerous self portraits and nude models remained consistent throughout his career in keeping with his erotic, sensual and tormented visions of art. The paintings and text included in this book bring the extraordinary talent of this artist who, sadly, died of Spanish influenza at the age of 28 in Vienna.



Jean Sutherland Boggs - [Degas] PDF
English | 1988 | ISBN: 0870995197, 9780870995194 | PDF | 640 pages | 91 MB

Degas, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective exhibition of the work of Edgar Degas (1834–1917) to be held in more than fifty years, is the permanent record of the 1988–89 exhibition jointly organized by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux, Paris, The National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Comprehensive in scope and definitive in nature, this volume includes paintings, pastels, drawings, monotypes, prints, photographs, and sculpture representing every aspect of the career of one of the protean artists of the nineteenth century. As a result of extensive research conducted in libraries, archives, and private collections in Europe and North America, dozens of previously unpublished letters and hundreds of little-known documents here provide an unparalleled source of information on the life of this extraordinary artist, bringing to a new level of precision our understanding of his working methods, his subjects, and his patrons.



Jane Rogoyska - [Klimt (Mega Square Collection)] PDF
English | ISBN: 1844845907 | edition 2011 | PDF | 256 pages | 42.4 MB

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), was one of the most influential artists at the end of the 19th century and was the founder of the Viennese Secession movement. He used the movement to express his criticism of traditional art, which was characterised by its opposition to change and the refusal to countenance a certain vision of Modernism. Klimt took his inspiration from the slow but unstoppable decline of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the multitude of cultures from which it was composed. Klimt was an artist of great eroticism and sensuality and together with Kokoschka and Schiele, he is one of the great masters of Expressionism. This book brings together Klimt’s finest paintings, along with a text that demonstrates the extraordinary eclecticism of this great artist.



Gioacchino Barbera - [Antonello da Messina: Sicily's Renaissance Master] PDF
English | 1981 | ISBN: 0300116489/1588391779 | PDF | 58 pages | 7.54 MB

Praised in fifteenth-century humanist circles for his uncanny ability to create figures "so well that they seemed alive and missing only a soul," the great Quattrocento master Antonello da Messina was born Antonello di Giovanni d'Antonio in Messina, a small city on the periphery of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, about 1430. This catalogue accompanies a small, focused exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art centered around the loan by a trio of Sicilian museums of three masterpieces by Antonello, which will be seen for the first time in the United States. The recently rediscovered double-sided painting from Messina of the Madonna and Child, with a Praying Franciscan Donor, perhaps the artist's earliest extant work and with a poignant image of Christ Crowned with Thorns on the reverse, is joined by the Portrait of a Man from Cefalù, a psychological tour de force, and by the centerpiece of the group—the compelling and mysterious Virgin Annunciate from Palermo, whose haunting beauty and serenity have been compared to that of Leonardo's Mona Lisa.
A handful of other works by Antonello—including the Metropolitan Museum's Christ Crowned with Thorns; a drawing attributed to the artist, in the Metropolitan's Robert Lehman Collection; and a panel of the Ecce Homo with a scene of Saint Jerome in the Desert on the reverse side, on loan from a private collection—as well as four related works by Antonello's contemporaries, from the Museum's own collection, complete the exhibition. The drawing and each of the paintings are reproduced in full color, some with fascinating details, and, in addition, several of the master's key iconic paintings are shown in comparative illustrations.
Although details about Antonello's beginnings are scarce, clouded by legend and sometimes dubious information in the early sources, his artistic formation appears to have taken place in Naples, during the reign of Alfonso of Aragon, in a cultural climate open to French, Provençal, Spanish, and Netherlandish influences. Already an independent master by 1457, he received numerous local commissions and was the head of a thriving workshop. A possible first trip to Rome about 1460 may have afforded Antonello the opportunity to experience the work of Fra Angelico and Piero della Francesca firsthand. However, the defining moment in his artistic development was to come later, in 1474–75, when Antonello made his first documented journey to Venice, a landmark occasion; it was there that he was commissioned to paint the principal altarpiece, his masterpiece, for the church of San Cassiano. This innovative work would leave a lasting imprint on the art of Giovanni Bellini and other Venetian masters, while the portraits Antonello painted in that city represent a new stage in the evolution of the genre in Italy. No greater artists would emerge from Southern Italy in the fifteenth century.



Virginia Pitts Rembert - [Hieronymus Bosch] PDF
English | ISBN: 1906981418 | 2012 | PDF | 200 pages | 63 MB

Long before computer games were invented, Hieronymus Bosch was painting terrifying yet strangely likable monsters, often with a touch of humour. His works are assertive statements about the mental dangers that befall those who abandon the teachings of Christ. With a life that spanned 1450 to 1516, Bosch was born at the height of the Renaissance and witnessed its religious wars. Medieval traditions and values were crumbling, paving the way for a new universe where faith had lost its power and much of its magic. Bosch set out to warn doubters of the perils awaiting all and any who lost their faith in God. Believing that everyone had to make their own moral choices, he focused on themes of hell, heaven and lust, brilliantly exploiting the symbolism of a wide range of fruits and plants which lent his imagery strong sexual overtones.



Nina Kalitina - [Claude Monet (Best Of Collection)] PDF
English | 2011 | ISBN: 1844849023 | 200 pages | PDF | 57.90 MB

For Monet, the act of creation was always a painful struggle. His obsession to express emotions and to transmit light effects over nature was much more intense than his contemporaries. In his words: “Skills come and go… Art is always the same: a transposition of Nature that requests as much will as sensitivity. I strive and struggle against the sun…should as well paint with gold and precious stones.”

Abraham Ortelius - [Maps of the Ancient World - Ortelius - A Selection of 30 Maps from The Osher and Smith Collections] PDF
English | PDF | 30 pages | 38 MB

Abraham Ortelius (Abraham Ortels) (14 April 1527 -  28 June 1598) was a Flemish cartographer and geographer, generally recognized as the creator of the first modern atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theatre of the World). He is also believed to be the first person to imagine that the continents were joined together before drifting to their present positions.


Peter Whitfield - [The Image of the World: 20 Centuries of World Maps] PDF
English | ISBN: 0712303383, 9780712303385 | PDF | 153 pages | 1994 | 154 MB

Though technology has changed the tools of navigation available to us, maps are still the irreplaceable foundation of place and orientation. In this updated edition of Image of the World, map expert Peter Whitfield guides readers through a collection of some of the most extraordinary examples of maps both visually stunning and historically revealing. An enormous variety of maps from the last two thousand years are reproduced here in attractive, large-scale color illustrations. These fascinating and vibrant maps include Bishop Isidore of Seville's first-century design for a circular world map, the elaborately decorated manuscript maps of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and scientific maps of worlds that are still being explored, such as the ocean floor. In addition, Whitfield examines the history of world mapmaking through these outstanding individual examples. He discusses each map in relation to the religious, political, social or economic climates in which it was produced and considers what these maps reveal about the perceptions of their makers.


Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz - [American Impressionist and Realist Paintings and Drawings] PDF
Publisher: Metropolitan Museum of Art | 1973 | ISBN: 0870991221 | English | PDF | 164 pages | 14 MB

In recent years American painting has enjoyed one of the most lively, interesting, and deserved revivals in the art world. Museums all over the country have rediscovered, dusted off, and added to their American collections, installed them handsomely, and presented them in numerous worthwhile exhibitions, thereby helping to reopen the eyes of Americans to an immensely appealing and important part of their artistic heritage. Although art museums have good reason to be pleased with this activity, it should be remembered that private collectors have often been the pioneer reviving force in American art. They, through their enthusiasm and acumen, have shown the way for the museums. Currently nineteenth-century painting is probably the most restudied and sought-after American art, and the work produced by the last generation of that century and first two decades of the twentieth impressionist and realist pictures has begun to receive particular attention. Margaret and Raymond Horowitz, as a result of their perceptive collecting, have been primary leaders of the large and ever-growing group that appreciates the lyric beauty of this work. The Horowitzes have collected examples in painting and drawing of the highest quality, which, brought together in this exhibition, isolate some of the most noticeable characteristics of the art of the period quietude, simplicity, delicacy, and intimacy.

Tom Sandqvist - [Dada East: The Romanians of Cabaret Voltaire] PDF
The sustained provocations to order, decency, taste and common sense unleashed at the infamous Cabaret Voltaire in neutral Zurich during the war-torn February of 1916 have never really been matched; modernist performance began with an intensity it never fully regained. In almost encyclopedic you-are-there detail, Sandqvist, a professor of art history in Stockholm, convincingly shows that Dada did not emerge fully formed in Zurich but grew out of an already active Romanian avant-garde, one that simply relocated to Switzerland when a group of Bucharest's most advanced modernists settled there. Bucharest, then a mysterious, polyglot city at the fringes of Europe, with one foot in Paris and another in the East, had already been a hotbed of proto-Dada poetry, prose and performance in the period before 1914. That scene's leading light was Tristan Tzara, formerly Samuel Rosenstock, who coined the term "Dada." Tracing the careers of a remarkable group of men and women against a richly woven background of their competing yet complementary Yiddish, Eastern Orthodox, modernist and folkloric traditions was a massive task of intellectual archeology, which Sandqvist has accomplished with ease. In particular, his explorations of archives long hidden by Romania's Communist government provide an unprecedented depth of contextual information about one of art history's most influential movements.    


Eric Kjellgren - [Splendid Isolation: Art of Easter Island] PDF
