Light! : the industrial age 1750-1900 : art & science, technology & society by Andreas Blühm ( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Of all the revolutionary changes brought about by the Industrial Age perhaps the most extraordinary and far-reaching was the transformation of light. Scientists described its hidden laws to the general public for the first time. Artists found radical ways of depicting it. Inventors found new ways of making it. The lives of ordinary people changed forever as streets, shops, theatres, even their own homes were brilliantly illuminated, first by gas, and then, even more dazzlingly, by electricity." "The story is told here for the first time in its entirety. The book describes the inventions still with us, such as electric light, the microscope and photography, as well as arcane reminders of a vanished world, such as the heliostat, the lithophane and the magic lantern. It portrays a revolution in the arts: the impressionists conjuring up sunlight, Constable redefining daylight, Caspar David Friedrich discovering twilight. And it debates the changing symbolism of light: the meaning of the Enlightenment, the light of God's truth, the nightmarish light of factory furnaces by night."--BOOK JACKET

Alexandre Cabanel : the tradition of beauty by Alexandre Cabanel ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the foremost artists of 19th century France, Alexandre Cabanel (1823 - 1889), will be featured in his first exhibition at the Wallraf in Spring 2011. In cooperation with Musée Fabre in Montpellier, the Wallraf in Cologne will present over 60 works by a man who rose from the rank of a lowly carpenter's son to become court painter to Napoleon III. In order to give these graceful works by the last of the great salon painters just the right ambience, the Wallraf has secured the services of a distinguished compatriot of Cabanel: Star designer Christian Lacroix has been commissioned to design a special interior exclusively for the exhibition. Lacroix studied at the Academy of Arts in Montpellier the hometown of Cabanel and regards the painter as one of his all-time favourites. Exhibition: Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Köln (4.2-15.5.2011)
Pygmalion : die Ikonographie eines Künstlermythos zwischen 1500 und 1900 by Andreas Blühm ( Book )
7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in German and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Diese Arbeit versucht zum ersten Male, die künstlerischen Repräsentationen des Pygmalion-Mythos umfassend zu behandeln. Der sagenhafte Bildhauer, dessen Statue nach Ovid (Metamorphosen, Buch X) von Aphrodite zum Leben erweckt wurde, eignete sich wie keine andere Gestalt der antiken Mythologie als Identifikationsfigur bildender Künstler. Die vielseitige Art und Weise der Darstellung innerhalb der vier vergangenen neuzeitlichen Jahrhunderte spiegelt das wechselnde Selbstverständnis von Malern und Bildhauern. Der Moment der Belebung einer Statue stellte in jedem Einzelfall eine grosse Herausforderung an das technische Vermögen und den Ideenreichtum dar. Sehr oft ist daher die Verbildlichung des Pygmalion-Mythos zum Bravourstück geraten, mit dem die Überlegenheit eines Künstlers oder die einer Kunstgattung demonstriert werden sollte. Theoretische Quellen und literarische Texte ergänzen die Interpretation der Werke der bildenden Kunst
