Rembrandt's landscapes by Christiaan Vogelaar( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Choosing the better part : Anna Maria van Schurman (1607-1678) by Mirjam de Baar( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anna Maria van Schurman was in more than one aspect an unconventional woman in her own lifetime. As a gifted scholar in many foreign and ancient languages, as well as in philosophy and theology, she corresponded with other learned men and women all over Europe. She achieved international renown for her own defence of scholarly activity of women. Life and work of this Dutch femme savante of the 17th Century has thus far been studied by theologians, philosophers, literary scholars, historians, pedagogues and art historians, each concentrating on specific aspects of Van Schurman's biography or work. A rather fragmented image of this scholar was the result. This interdependent collection of essays describes the life and work of Anna Maria van Schurman from an interdisciplinary - or rather multidisciplinary - approach and will outline a more integrated yet at the same time subtly differentiated picture. Nine contributions - from the disciplines of philosophy, theology, Dutch language and literature, intellectual and art history, and women's studies - partly based on new source material, shed light on Van Schurman's ideas on erudition and femininity, ethics and philosophy, as well as on her religious beliefs, within the context of the early modern intellectual community to which she belonged. Audience: This collection of essays will therefore command the interest not only of historians, but also of scholars and students in theology, philosophy, art history, and women's studies

Utopia 1900-1940 : visions of a new world by Doris Wintgens Hötte( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of the twentieth century, two avantgarde movements emerged that sought to change the world: expressionism and constructivism. This book paints a portrait of the two schools and the inspiring work they produced. The leaders of these movements believed they were standing at the threshold of a new era, and they sought to shape its reality in a forceful, radical way. They created the utopian concept of A New Man in a New Society: a total concept that encompassed art, architecture and design. From teaspoons to skyscrapers, they designed life with the goal of improving human beings and society. Yet philosophically the two movements were diametrically opposed. For the expressionists, individual freedom came first; for the constructivists, the individual was first and foremost part of a larger whole. Exhibition: Museum De Lakenhal, Leiden, the Netherlands (22.9.2013-5.1.2014)
Oskar Kokoschka : portraits of people and animals by Oskar Kokoschka( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his highly expressionistic, colourful portraits and landscape paintings, Austrian artist Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980) was an avant-garde inspiration to a generation of painters. The four-month retrospective exhibition exhibited in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen features 150 paintings and drawings that highlight a great cultural movement in Europe during the late 19th and early 20th century. This major retrospective brings together Kokoschka's confrontational portraits more than half a century after his work was last exhibited in The Netherlands

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Munch : Van Gogh by Edvard Munch( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Dutch and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work and artistic ambitions of Edvard Munch (1863-1944) and Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) show interesting parallels. They are known for their emotionally imbued paintings and drawings, their personal and innovative style and their tormented lives. Both strived to modernise art and developed expressive imagery to portray the universal emotions of human life. In 'Munch : Van Gogh', these similarities are focused on for the first time. The exhibition studies the essence of their art, their artistic ambitions, the development in their style and technique and the influences to which they were subjected. This shows why these artists are so often mentioned in one breath. With over one hundred art works including various iconic masterpieces and special artworks which are rarely loaned out ; the two artists are brought together on a large scale for the first time. Exhibition: Munch Museet, Oslo, Norway (5.-9.2015) / Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (24.9.2015-17.1.2016)

Rembrandt etchings from the Zorn collections : summary catalogue by Johan Cederlund( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De Zweedse kunstenaar Anders Zorn (1860-1920) genoot in zijn tijd een enorme reputatie. Als portretschilder, maar ook als virtuoos etser. Zijn sterk door Rembrandt beïnvloede prenten speelden een belangrijke rol in zijn succes. Zorn slaagde erin een collectie op te bouwen van bijna tweehonderd Rembrandt-etsen, die zich thans bevinden in het Zorn Museum in Mora. Bijna honderd jaar na Zorns dood is deze bijzondere collectie voor het eerst wetenschappelijk bewerkt. Met het verschijnen van deze catalogus zijn de resultaten van dit onderzoek voor een breed publiek toegankelijk gemaakt. De beschrijving van de etsen wordt voorafgegaan door een inleiding waarin onder meer wordt ingegaan op de verzamelgeschiedenis van Rembrandt-grafiek in Zweden, de bronnen waaruit Zorn zijn etsen betrok en de functie van de verzameling. Alle etsen zijn in kleur afgebeeld. Daarnaast zullen ook de watermerken worden gereproduceerd. Indexen, concordantielijsten en een bibliografie vergroten de toegankelijkheid
Vermeer's Little Street : a view of the Penspoort in Delft by F Grijzenhout( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not much is known about Johannes Vermeer's famous Little Street. The exact location of this Delft townscape has been occupying art historians, archaeologists and others for years. Did Vermeer picture his own house, or perhaps the view from it? Do the buildings he painted still exist? Or did he, at least in part, invent this wonderful, poignant composition? Art historian Frans Grijzenhout happened upon a source never before tapped for this purpose and was able to identify the site of this unique spot with its two adjacent passageways. This astonishing discovery sheds an entirely new light on Vermeer's life and work, and on the harsh world of the people who lived in that little street - the painter's kinsfolk - in the shadow of the Golden Age
Aat Veldhoen : polaroids by Aat Veldhoen( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Met de introductie van de polaroidcamera in 1947 werd het voor het eerst mogelijk opnames direct, zonder tussenkomst van een fotolaboratorium, te ontwikkelen. De techniek genoot al snel grote populariteit onder kunstenaars. De mogelijkheid het eindresultaat direct te beoordelen en zonodig een nieuwe opname te maken, heeft hier zeker aan bijgedragen. Ook Veldhoen gebruikte de polaroid als aide mémoire en voorstudie en soms voor het vastleggen van vluchtige situaties. Maar voor hem was de polaroid meer dan een hulpmiddel alleen. Daarvan getuigen de als zelfstandige opnamen bedoelde en met veel gevoel voor sfeer, licht, kleur en compositie gemaakte polaroids, zoals de intieme inkijkjes in Veldhoens huiselijk leven, portretten, zelfportretten, naakten en vakantiekiekjes en opnames van documentaire aard. Een bijzonder onderdeel vormen de zogenaamde gemanipuleerde polaroids, een uit de VS overgewaaide techniek waarbij spectaculaire effecten werden bereikt door met een puntig voorwerp in de nog niet uitgeharde filmemulsie te tekenen. Veldhoen beheerste deze techniek, die hem de mogelijkheid bood om de realiteit naar de hand te zetten, tot in de finesse. Veldhoen ontwikkelde een ware passie voor het medium en maakte meer dan vijfduizend foto's. Ondanks de hoge kwaliteit leidde dit unieke beeldmateriaal jarenlang een verborgen bestaan

Tsereteli, a democrat in the Russian revolution : a political biography by W. H Roobol( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About Tsereteli relatively little has been written in historical literature. A study of his political career fits well into the current, gradually widening interest in the men who were the losers in the Russian revolution. A biography of Tsereteli is certainly not out of place alongside S.H. Baron's biography of Plekhanov, I. Getzler's work on Martov and the biography of Aksel'rod by A. Ascher. While Plekhanov, Martov and Aksel'rod laid down the theoretical principles of Menshe vism, Tsereteli was certainly their superior in the field of practical politics. The quantity and quality of the available source material is un equally divided over the different periods of Tsereteli's life. There is very little more about his youth than the brief notes which he himself made much later in his life, and the recollections which Boris Niko laevskii and Tsereteli's sister Eliko noted down from things he said. There is quite a lot of material about the student movement in Moscow between I900 and I902, in which he took an active part, so that it is possible to get a good general picture. Since the students often acted anonymously, however, it is not easy to determine Tsereteli's role
Hidden stories : wise lessons in the decorations of Amsterdam's former Town Hall( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heroes of a golden age, gods and Titans, wise poets and foolish kings, powerful city maids, goddesses of the hunt or love, gods of trade or war. These are no ordinary residents of a town hall or a palace. In silence they tell their stories to those who want to hear. These are wise lessons from bygone ages, but still relevant to whomever recognizes them. Architect Jacob van Campen used images in marble and paint as a tool to tell two story lines to both the visitor and user of the building. Firstly, the glorification of Amsterdam as a center of the world. On the other hand, the symbolism of the Town Hall, which as the seat of order and authority needed to encourage good governance and good citizenship. The result is a building that can be read like a book. Exhibition: Royal Palace Amsterdam, The Netherlands (03.07.-27.09.2015)

The visible world : Samuel van Hoogstraten's art theory and the legitimation of painting in the Dutch golden age by Thijs Weststeijn( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did painters and their public speak about art in Rembrandt's age? This book about the writings of the painter-poet Samuel van Hoogstraten, one of Rembrandt's pupils, examines a wide variety of themes from painting practice and theory from the Dutch Golden Age. It addresses the contested issue of 'Dutch realism' and its hidden symbolism, as well as Rembrandt's concern with representing emotions in order to involve the spectator. Diverse aspects of imitation and illusion come to the fore, such as the theory behind sketchy or 'rough' brushwork and the active role played by the viewer's imagination. Taking as its starting point discussions in Rembrandt's studio, this unique study provides an ambitious overview of Dutch artists' ideas on painting
