Bernini and the birth of Baroque portrait sculpture by Julian Brooks( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gian Lorenzo Bernini was the greatest sculptor of the Baroque period, and yet - surprisingly - there has never been a major North American exhibition of his work. Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture - on view from August 5 through October 26, 2008, at the J. Paul Getty Museum and from November 28, 2008, through March 8, 2009, at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa - showcases portrait sculptures from all phases of the artist's long career, from the very early Antonio Coppola of 1612 to Clement X of about 1676." "Bernini's portrait busts were masterpieces of technical virtuosity; at the same time, they revealed a new interest in psychological depth. Bernini's ability to capture the essential character of his subjects was unmatched and had a profound influence on other leading sculptors of his day, such as Alessandro Algardi, Giuliano Finelli, and Francesco Mochi." "Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture is a groundbreaking study that also features drawings and paintings by Bernini and his contemporaries. Together they demonstrate not only the range, skill, and acuity of these masters of Baroque portraiture but also the interrelationship of the arts in seventeenth-century Rome."--Jacket
Looking at European ceramics : a guide to technical terms by David Harris Cohen( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is maiolica? What is the difference between hard-paste and soft-paste porcelain. What is a piatto da pompa? This book offers definitions of these and other terms related to the techniques, processes, and materials used in the making of ceramics in Europe from the Middle Ages throughout the beginning of the twentieth century. Concise and readable explanations of the technical terms most frequently encountered by the museum-goer, accompanied by numerous illustrations of works from the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum and the British Museum, are presented in an easily portable volume"--Publisher's description
Looking at glass : a guide to terms, styles, and techniques by Catherine Hess( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The informative entries and the many illustrations will afford readers a greater understanding of glass techniques and heightened enjoyment of the objects." "With illustrations drawn from the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum, The Corning Museum of Glass, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, this volume is an essential guide to anyone interested in glass and its production."--Jacket
The arts of fire : Islamic influences on glass and ceramics of the Italian Renaissance by Catherine Hess( Book )

17 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to coincide with an exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum, The Arts of Fire demonstrates how many of the techniques of glass and ceramic production and ornamentation were first developed in the Islamic East between the eighth and twelfth centuries. Essays by volume editor Catherine Hess and by Linda Komaroff and George Saliba demonstrate early modern Europe's debt to the Islamic world and help us better understand the interrelationships of cultures over time."--Jacket

Italian ceramics : catalogue of the J. Paul Getty Museum collection by Catherine Hess( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Italian Ceramics amplifies and updates the earlier volume, including objects - some of them porcelain and terra-cotta - acquired during the intervening years. Among them are a pair of eighteenth-century candlesticks representing mythological scenes and a tabletop with hunting scenes; and, from the 1790s, the beautifully modeled and painted Saint Joseph with the Christ Child." "Italian Ceramics contains the most recent scientific, historical, and iconographic information about the Museum's holdings. Completely revised and expanded, this book offers a wealth of new information about the Getty Museum's superb collection, which spans more than four centuries of Italian ceramic art."
