Canaletto in Venice by Martin Clayton( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The images of Venice created by Canaletto (1697-1768) are among the best-loved and most fascinating of all 18th-century paintings. During his lifetime Canaleuto's paintings of the city of his birth found in immediate market amongst collectors, particularly the British nobility on the Grand Tour." "This books brings together 14 of Canaletto's dazzling paintings of the Grand Canal, and 71 of his drawings of Venice and the lagoon. It features fascinating studies of life in 18th-century Venice, from canal-side workshops to the bustling festivities of Ascension Day around St. Mark's Square, with the effects of sunlight, water and atmosphere exquisitely captured." "By setting these works against contemporary photographs of Venice, taken from the viewpoints used by the artist, this book explores how Canaletto manipulated familiar Venetian topography to create what have become the archetypal images of the most beautiful city in the world." "Includes an annotated map of the city, detailing Canaletto's viewpoints, and 159 illustrations, 121 in colour."--BOOK JACKET

The crown jewels by Anna Keay( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Crown Jewels have often been called "the finest jewelry collection in the world." This book provides a dazzling mix of art and photography with entirely new views plus spectacular details. Individual pieces, gems, and carefully selected groups of objects: the royal jewels can be seen here as never before. The priceless objects in the collection were created to be the physical embodiment of English sovereignty, and their story is that of the English monarchy itself-from the spoon used to pour out the holy oil of St. Thomas Becket at the coronation to the crown that King Edward VIII took into exile after he abdicated in 1936. In addition to the specially taken photographs of the jewels there are paintings and photographs of monarchs wearing the regalia, coronation ceremonies, and royal events during which items from the collection are used. The Crown Jewels are visited at the Tower of London by more than two million people each year. Based on original research and written by an expert in English court history, this is the definitive record of a most remarkable collection
