The cult of beauty : the Victorian avant-garde 1860-1900 by Esmé Whittaker( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book "focuses on a period in the nineteenth century when a group of artists, architects and designers found themselves united in the search for a new Beauty. The Aesthetic Movement, as it came to be known, sought nothing less than the creation of a new kind of art, an art freed from outworn establishment ideas and Victorian notions of morality. This was to be "Art for Art's sake" -- art that did not tell stories of make moral points,art that dared simply to offer visual delight and hint at sensuous pleasure. This new and exciting "Cult of Beauty" joined, for a while at least, romantic bohemians such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, along with maverick figures such as James McNeill Whistler and painters of grand classical subjects who belonged to the circle of Frederic Leighton. ... The book also reveals how artists' houses, their collections of beautiful things and their extravagant lifestyles became the object of public fascination. the influence of the "Palaces of Art" created by Rossetti and Morris, Lord Leighton and others led to a widespread revolution in architecture and interior decoration. Oscar Wilde made his name promoting the idea of "The House Beautiful" and the styles favoured by Aesthetic designers were among the very first to be widely exploited commercially in Britain."
Monet in Normandy by Claude Monet( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new look at the world's most beloved Impressionist, Monet in Normandy examines some of the artist's most important paintings - including the famed Giverny canvases as well as the iconic haystacks and Rouen Cathedral series. This catalogue, which accompanies a major traveling exhibition, explores for the first time Monet's enduring ties to the region of Normandy. It was here that Monet began his painting career, and it was here that he met his first great mentor, Eugene Boudin. Monet developed a deep affection for the area, which was becoming the first international tourist destination of the modern age. He would return time after time to depict its dramatic coastline, picturesque villages, and seaside resorts." "Featuring more than sixty masterworks, Monet in Normandy marks one of the largest Impressionist exhibitions to travel the country. Included are many paintings from major museums and private collections across the United States, Europe, and Japan. Richard Brettell contributes three essays that track Monet's roots in this area and place him within the context of his contemporaries. Commentaries accompanying each painting in the catalogue are provided by the organizing curators Lynn Federle Orr, Heather Lemonedes, and David Steel."--Jacket

Masters of Venice : Renaissance painters of passion and power from the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring fifty masterworks by Mantegna, Giorgione, Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto, this stunning book examines the brilliant painters who transformed the art of Renaissance Venice. Among the singular moments in the evolution of Western art, the Venetian Renaissance forged an artistic vocabulary of dazzling virtuosity. Celebrating the poetic potential of color and beauty observed in nature, Venetian painters of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries transcended the spatial, textural, and emotional realism of their predecessors to create works unsurpassed in their sensual depictions, velvety surfaces, and unique and glorious treatment of light. Focusing on canonical works from Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum (one of the world's four great imperial museums, along with the Hermitage, the Louvre, and the Prado), this book's lavish illustrations and illuminating essays offer a rich introduction to the treasures of the Venetian Renaissance. Among the spectacular artworks are Mantegna's tortured Saint Sebastian, Titian's enigmatic Bravo (The Assassin) and sumptuous Danäe, and a rare group of paintings by the elusive Giorgione, including Portrait of a Young Woman (Laura) and The Three philosophers. The book also includes exemplary works by Veronese, Palma ecchio, Bordone, and Bassano, among others, revealing the full range of Venetian accomplishment in the Renaissance era

The painting headlines the exhibition, which highlights the artistic genius of Dutch Golden Age painters, including Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals and Jan Steen, through the presentation of more than 35 exceptional works. Through landscapes and portraits, this book will explore the idea that Dutch artists more readily embraced paintings of everyday subjects than their southern European contemporaries, focusing on capturing commonplace scenes of daily life. Dutch artists not only recorded representations of the domestic interior, still lifes and boisterous crowds, but often imbued these scenes with moral undertones and humorous, sarcastic wit

GEO-SEQ Best Practices Manual. Geologic Carbon Dioxide Sequestration : Site Evaluation to Implementation( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first phase of the GEO-SEQ project was a multidisciplinary effort focused on investigating ways to lower the cost and risk of geologic carbon sequestration. Through our research in the GEO-SEQ project, we have produced results that may be of interest to the wider geologic carbon sequestration community. However, much of the knowledge developed in GEO-SEQ is not easily accessible because it is dispersed in the peer-reviewed literature and conference proceedings in individual papers on specific topics. The purpose of this report is to present key GEO-SEQ findings relevant to the practical implementation of geologic carbon sequestration in the form of a Best Practices Manual. Because our work in GEO-SEQ focused on the characterization and project development aspects, the scope of this report covers practices prior to injection, referred to as the design phase. The design phase encompasses activities such as selecting sites for which enhanced recovery may be possible, evaluating CO{sub 2} capacity and sequestration feasibility, and designing and evaluating monitoring approaches. Through this Best Practices Manual, we have endeavored to place our GEO-SEQ findings in a practical context and format that will be useful to readers interested in project implementation. The overall objective of this Manual is to facilitate putting the findings of the GEO-SEQ project into practice
