Art and visual perception : a psychology of the creative eye by Rudolf Arnheim( Book )

27 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its first publication in 1954, this work has established itself as a unique classic. It applies the approaches and findings of modern psychology to the study of art: it describes the visual process that takes place when people create- or look at- works in the various arts, and explains how the eye organizes visual material according to definite psychological laws. Fresh in thought, clean in style, this book is a highly readable contribution to the study of aesthetics. It could be recommended as an excellent introduction to the psychology of perception, however, it is the art lover, whether psychologist or not, who will find this book the most rewarding. -- from Book Jacket

Interaction of color : text of the original edition with revised plate section by Josef Albers( Book )

14 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Josef Albers' "Interaction of Color" is a masterwork in twentieth-century art education. Conceived as a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors, and students, this timeless book presents Albers' unique ideas of colour experimentation in a way that is valuable to specialists as well as to a larger audience. Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 colour plates, "Interaction of Color" first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten representative colour studies chosen by Albers. The paperback has remained in print ever since and remains one of the most influential resources on colour for countless readers. This new paperback edition presents a significantly expanded selection of more than thirty colour studies alongside Albers' original unabridged text, demonstrating such principles as colour relativity, intensity, and temperature; vibrating and vanishing boundaries; and the illusion of transparency and reversed grounds. In a larger format and with enhanced production values, this expanded edition celebrates the unique authority of Albers' contribution to colour theory and brings the artist's iconic study to an eager new generation of readers

Lectures on Don Quixote by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En el curso 1951-1952, cuatro años antes de publicar Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov dictó en la Universidad de Harvard seis lecciones sobre el Quijote. Aquellas clases, en las que el escritor pretendía demostrar que se trataba "del libro más amargo y bárbaro de todos los tiempos", fueron publicadas póstumemente, en 1983, por Fredson Browers con el título de Lectures on Don Quixote. Nabokov no pensaba que el Quijote fuera la mejor novela de todos los tiempos; ni siquiera creía que fuera buena; es más, habría abandonado gustoso su lectura en el capítulo sexto, tras el escrutinio de la biblioteca del caballero. Quizá el gran error de interpretación de Nabokov fue enfrentarse al Quijote desde una perspectiva totalmente anglosajona, desde la devoción más absoluta a Shakespeare. Ante los seiscientos estudiantes que siguieron aquellas conferencias, intentó desmitificar el libro y hacerles evidentes sus defectos y sus aciertos. a pesar de sus controvertidas opiniones sobre el autor y el personaje, Nabokov reconoció sin ambages la pervivencia del Quijote en la gran narrativa posterior, desde Dickens hasta Tolstoi. -- Contracarátula
