The royal portrait : image and impact by Jennifer Scott( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the role portraiture has played in promoting the public and private face of monarchs from Richard II to Queen Elizabeth II. It investigates the role the royal portrait has played in fashion and politics across 600 years of official and unofficial image-making. The author uses specific works, discussed in detail, as a way to explore the parallels between historic and present day image-making, and reveals a type of iconography far more ground-breaking than its traditions would suggest.--Publisher's description
Canaletto in Venice by Martin Clayton( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 168 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."--Jacket

The crown jewels by Anna Keay( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 100 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

Leonardo da Vinci : the mechanics of man by Martin Clayton( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) spent over twenty-five years investigating the workings of the human body. While his paintings were widely known in his day, only a few friends and associates had any intimation of the extent of his medical research. Leonardo's "Anatomical Manuscript A," created over the winter of 1510-11, is the only group of such drawings in which he approached complete coverage of the human form, and it represents his finest work in this area. This fascinating book presents a complete discussion of all the drawings in Manuscript A, not only as evidence of Leonardo's artistic genius, but also as the product of the sophisticated scientific investigations they represent. Each drawing records a meticulous human dissection and is extensively annotated with Leonardo's notes, questions, and memoranda to himself in "mirror-writing," (backward writing legible only when held up to a mirror, the motivations for which have been the subject of much speculation). Each drawing is reproduced twice: once in its original form and once with a new English translation in place of Leonardo's original notes. The authors comment on the accuracy of the anatomical renderings and the conclusions Leonardo draws from them

2 editions published in 2008 in Dutch and French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo da Vinci, anatomist by Leonardo( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo has long been recognised as one of the great artists of the Renaissance, but he was also a pioneer in the understanding of human anatomy. He intended to publish his ground-breaking work in a treatise on anatomy, and had he done so his discoveries would have transformed European knowledge of the subject. But on Leonardo's death in 1519 the drawings remained a mass of undigested material among his private papers and their significance was effectively lost to the world for almost 400 years
