The impressionists by Eileen Romano( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Italian and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is not an attempt to investigate the history of art; on the contrary, the basic assumption is that the paintings of the Impressionists are already well-known to the public at large. Instead, the intention is that of slipping behind the scenes to illustrate with over 200 contemporary photographs the society in which these artists lived: the schools and the ateliers they frequented, the masters who preceded them, the galleries where they displayed their works, the support they received, and their detractors - the official artists of the Second Empire, critics, and visitors to the first exhibitions."--BOOK JACKET. "The Impressionists examines the period between 1874 - when the first exhibition of the Impressionists was held at the studio of the photographer Nadar - and 1887, the eighth and final show, after which the group split up, each member then pursuing his own way thereafter. By illustrating the protagonists in overall terms, this book aims to complement the many art books already dealing with this well-known and much-quoted art movement."--BOOK JACKET. "The book also contains a gallery of wonderful Impressionist paintings - six each by Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, and Claude Monet."--Jacket
The history of the nude by Flaminio Gualdoni( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Paleolithic 'great mothers' to the Greek athletes, from the Venus of Urbino by Titian to Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man, from the Odalisque by Boucher to those by Ingres, to the Amazons of Helmut Newton and the desolate, lifeless bodies of Andres Serrano, the nude is the theme of artistic representation par excellence. The nude body as the incarnation of perfect beauty and the suspicions concerning its sensuality imposed by Christian culture; the renewed triumph of ancient beauty in the Renaissance and the study of anatomy; the visual licentiousness of the eighteenth century and the photographic nude; ideal beauty, eroticism, pornography; the nude also as representation of the ugly and its flaunted truthfulness in the art of the twentieth century; the nude that itself becomes a work of art in the avant-garde of the post-WWII period, with performance, body art and experimental theater. These threads of the narration make for a deeply informative historical exploration of the nude in Western art, all conducted around a rich apparatus of images."--Publisher's description

The time of indifference by Alberto Moravia( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moravia realiza un análisis despiadado del desencanto y la desmoralización que caracterizan a extensas capas de la sociedad de nuestro tiempo. La incertidumbre y la indiferencia son estudiadas como una enfermedad; las oscuridades del subconsciente son exploradas como si fueran una espesa selva. El autor tiene un modo cáustico de examinar los vicios y errores humanos, y un señalado interés por las situaciones ambiguas y el juego de los apetitos. A ello se suma una honda preocupación por aclarar paisajes interiores, así como una obsesión por llevar ciertas premisas hasta sus últimas consecuencias

Alle diese neun handfest zupackenden Erzählungen habeneinen Ich-Erzähler. Alberto Moravia, der Meister des italienischen <<psychologischen Realismus>>, schlüpft jedesmal in eine andere Rolle. Er ist nacheinander- ein Schuhmacher, dem die Ehefrau durchgebrannt ist und der dadurch eine Bewusstseinsspaltung erleidet- der Onkel eines empfindsamen Schulmädchens, das amLeben verzagt; weswegen?- der Hausmeister eines Mietshauses, in dem oben ein romantisch humanistischer Professor wohnt;- der nichtsnutzige (aber ganz nette) Sohn einer alles verzeihenden Mutter- ein Junge, den die Angst vor einem elterlich verordneten Landaufenthalt über den Kopf wächst;- ein stadtstreichender Hochstapler und Schmarotzer, dessen witziger Trick ein einziges Mal danebengeht- ein Vater von viel zu vielen Kindern und Ehemann einer elementar mütterlichen Frau, - ein junger Friseur, der mit seinem Seniorpartner und Schwager wegen einer jungen Nachbarin aneinandergerät;- ein Kellner (später Lastwagenfahrer), der ein Landmädchen auf einsamer Höhe bemerkt. Der so vielfältige Ich-Erzähler und alle Gestalten, die er darstellt, sind <<Kleine Leute>> in Rom: eine Gesellschaft, von der die Rom-Touristen wenig oder nichts wissen und die doch, bei aller Armseligkeit, erstaunlich viel Verstand und Herz zum Vorschein kommen lässt. Italienischer Originaltext und deutsche Übersetzung stehen in Paralleldruck einander gegenüber. Texte für Könner
