              Naturaleza Muerta
               

              Naturaleza Muerta (EPUB ebook)

              By Charles, Victoria

              Cezanne fue capaz de transformar una taza de te en algo vivo, elevando el genero de naturaleza muerta a un nivel en el que sus elementos dejan de ser objetos inanimados. Wassily Kandinsky dijo de este artista frances: "Pinto estos elementos como seres humanos porque poseia el don... de adivinar la vida interior que se oculta en todas las cosas". Ademas de las naturalezas muertas de Cezanne, este libro incluye tambien obras de artistas como Van Gogh, Matisse, Chardin y Picasso. Su formato, de gran comodidad, lo convierte en el regalo ideal.

              Bruegel (EPUB ebook)

              By Michel, Francois Emile; Charles, Victoria

              Die Bruegels - allen voran Pieter der Altere, zusammen mit seinen Sohnen Pieter (Hollenbruegel") und Jan (Samt- oder Blumenbruegel") - sind die bedeutendste flamische Malerfamilie. Ihre Werke sind Zeugnisse des unschatzbaren Beitrags, den diese Familie in der Entwicklung der Male...rei des nordlichen Europa geleistet hat. Sie entzogen sich bewusst dem Einfluss des italienischen Manierismus und schufen damit einen ganz eigenen, unabhangigen und tief im originellen Charakter der Flamen verwurzelten Stil. In teils volkstumlichen, teils allegorischen Szenen schildern Pieter Bruegel und seine Nachfolger auf unnachahmliche Weise den Alltag der bauerlichen und der stadtischen Bevolkerung zur Zeit der spanischen Herrschaft uber die Niederlande. In diesem opulent bebilderten Werk zeichnen die Autoren, Emile Michel und Victoria Charles, ein lebendiges Bild, anhand dessen wir die Entwicklung der niederlandischen und flamischen Kunst in der Zeit zwischen dem 15. und dem 17. Jahrhundert nachvollziehen konnen.

              Durer (EPUB ebook)

              By Charles, Victoria

              Der vielfach talentierte Albrecht Durer nimmt einen bedeutenden Platz in der Geschichte der deutschen Kunst ein. In einer Zeit, in der die italienischen Kunstler die klassischen Techniken der Olmalerei, Bildhauerei und Architektur zu neuen Hohen perfektionierten und dadurch glaub...ten, dass sie das wahre Kunstmonopol besaBen, widmete Durer sich einem eher vernachlassigten Medium, dass nur im Buchdruck zur Anwendung kam. Er befreite Holzschnitt und Kupferstich von dieser einseitigen Rolle, fuhrte beide Techniken zur Perfektion und raumte ihnen einen Platz im Olymp der angesehenen kunstlerischen Techniken ein. Eine Leistung, die sogar Giorgio Vasari in seinen Biographien beruhmter Kunstler wurdigte. In diesem Buch werden nicht nur die bekanntesten seiner Meisterstiche und Stichzyklen aufgefuhrt, sondern auch seinen weniger beachteten Aquarellen die notige Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet.

              Gaudi (EPUB ebook)

              By Charles, Victoria

              El arquitecto y disenador espanol Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) es una importante e influyente figura en la historia del arte contemporaneo de Espana. El uso del color, la utilizacion de diferentes materiales y la introduccion de movimiento en sus construcciones fueron toda una innova...cion en el terreno de la arquitectura. En su diario, Gaudi expreso sus propios sentimientos sobre el arte: "los colores usados en arquitectura tienen que ser intensos, logicos y fertiles". El autor, Jeremy Roe, utiliza una amplia gama de detalles fotograficos y arquitectonicos que le permiten revelar el contexto del arte de Barcelona mientras nos introduce en el mundo de Gaudi, maestro de algunas de las mas famosas construcciones, objetos de diseno y grandes obras de la arquitectura espanola. Este libro ayuda a comprender a Gaudi y su legado.

              Erotic Drawings (EPUB ebook)

              By Charles, Victoria

              From Michelangelo to Rubens, Degas and Picasso, erotic art has attracted many great masters, who created works that captivate the beholder like few others. In spite of, or maybe even because of, this attraction, erotic art has never failed to evoke controversy, and regularly had ...to defend itself from charges of pornography. This book guides readers from early portrayals of erotic scenes produced in the 16th and 17th centuries, to contemporary highlights such as Picasso's sketchbook drawings, encompassing a large variety of styles and techniques.

              Picasso
               

              Picasso (EPUB ebook)

              By Charles, Victoria

              Picasso was born a Spaniard and, so they say, began to draw before he could speak. As an infant he was instinctively attracted to artist's tools. In early childhood he could spend hours in happy concentration drawing spirals with a sense and meaning known only to himself. At othe...r times, shunning children's games, he traced his first pictures in the sand. This early self-expression held out promise of a rare gift. Malaga must be mentioned, for it was there, on 25 October 1881, that Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born and it was there that he spent the first ten years of his life. Picasso's father was a painter and professor at the School of Fine Arts and Crafts. Picasso learnt from him the basics of formal academic art training. Then he studied at the Academy of Arts in Madrid but never finished his degree. Picasso, who was not yet eighteen, had reached the point of his greatest rebelliousness; he repudiated academia's anemic aesthetics along with realism's pedestrian prose and, quite naturally, joined those who called themselves modernists, the non-conformist artists and writers, those whom Sabartes called "the elite of Catalan thought" and who were grouped around the artists' cafe Els Quatre Gats. During 1899 and 1900 the only subjects Picasso deemed worthy of painting were those which reflected the "final truth"; the transience of human life and the inevitability of death. His early works, ranged under the name of "Blue Period" (1901-1904), consist in blue-tinted paintings influenced by a trip through Spain and the death of his friend, Casagemas. Even though Picasso himself repeatedly insisted on the inner, subjective nature of the Blue Period, its genesis and, especially, the monochromatic blue were for many years explained as merely the results of various aesthetic influences. Between 1905 and 1907, Picasso entered a new phase, called "Rose Period" characterised by a more cheerful style with orange and pink colours. In Gosol, in the summer of 1906 the nude female form

              Still Life (EPUB ebook)

              By Charles, Victoria

              Cezanne transformed a teacup into something alive, raising still-life to the point that it ceased to be inanimate. Wassily Kandinsky said about the French artist: "He painted these things as human beings because he was endowed with the gift of divining the inner life in everythin...g." In addition to those of Cezanne, this book is devoted to still-life paintings by artists such as Van Gogh, Matisse, Chardin and Picasso.
