Velázquez : the technique of genius by Jonathan Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Great painters are invariably great technicians. In creating the techniques he needed to express his ideas, Velazquez became one of the most original practitioners of the art of painting ever known. In this richly illustrated book, two widely recognised specialists on Velazquez - one an art historian, the other a conservation scientist - combine their expertise to show exactly how Spain's most famous painter realised his artistic vision." "More than two hundred photographs of details of Velazquez's paintings vividly demonstrate how the artist realised his vision of man and nature through a highly allusive, economical manner of painting."--Jacket

Ve snaze zachovat úzkou souvislost mezi Velázguezovým životem a dílem spojuje autor umělcův životopis s analýzou jeho děl a s obecnými úvahami o Velázguezově novátorství v technice malby a ve výtvarném pojetí jeho děl. Snažísevysledovat různé vlivy, které na malíře působily, a rozděluje jeho tvorbu do tří hlavních vývojových období

"This book explores Velazquez's almost universal popularity. Accompanying a major exhibition at the National Gallery, London, it contextualises the artist's work and discusses his influence. Manet famously called him 'the painter's painter', and this book seeks to explain how, and why, his painterly, elegant compositions resonate so strongly with our Post-Impressionist sensibilities." "Written by world-class Velazquez scholars, the book surveys the artist's entire career, from his studies in Seville and Italy to his final great works at the court of Philip IV. It includes a full catalogue and chronology."--BOOK JACKET

What began as propaganda art to celebrate a rare Spanish victory in the Eighty Years' War with Holland, "The Surrender at Breda" is today recognized as Velazquez's narrative masterpiece.

Velázquez by Elena Ragusa( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spain's greatest baroque painter, Velazquez was an artist of tremendous gifts who painted portraits of Spanish nobility that imbued his subjects with mystery, as well as quotidian scenes of cheerful and satisfying domestic activities. For more than thirty years, Velazquez resided in the palace of his patron, King Philip IV, as a court painter, executing portraits of the king and members of the royal family and court, some of whom are most famously depicted in his towering masterpiece Las Meninas (The Ladies-in-Waiting), of 1656, a veritable theater of perspective interplay and baroque illusion." "Like all books in The Rizzoli Art Classics series, this book is a beautifully illustrated monograph, offering high-quality reproductions in a compact, accessible volume. This book features a literary introduction by a renowned art historian, a thoroughly researched essay, and captions describing the artist's most famous canvases. A useful appendix section includes an extensive chronology of the artist's life and important historical events of his time; a compilation of writings by well-known historians, insight into each painter's stylistic development; a geographical table detailing the location of each painting in the book; and a concise bibliography with suggested further readings."--Jacket

Several are published in English for the first time. The text is the record of a lifelong engagement with the life and works of this artist and evaluates many of the numerous attempts to solve the mysteries presented by the Spaniard's paintings."--BOOK JACKET
