The Baroque world of Fernando Botero by John Sillevis( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accompanying the artist's first American retrospective in more than thirty years, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero is the most extensive study of his life and work to date. Drawn exclusively from Botero's private collection, the one hundred works featured in this book, including previously unpublished paintings and drawings, represent the full scope of his oeuvre from a uniquely personal perspective. Many of these - portraits of friends and family members and remembered scenes - have remained in the artist's possession since their creation, while others he has bought back over the years as markers of significant developments in his career. Three essays examine the artist's creative life, from the aesthetic environment in which Botero developed his unique style to his catalyzing influence on the Colombian art world of the 1960s and '70s."--Jacket
The last days of Pompeii : decadence, apocalypse, resurrection by Victoria C Gardner Coates( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Destroyed yet paradoxically preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79, Pompeii and other nearby sites are usually considered places where we can most directly experience the daily lives of ancient Romans. Rather than present these sites as windows to the past, however, the authors of this book exlore Pompeii as a modern obsession, in which the Vesuvian sites function as mirrors of the present. Through cultural appropriation and projection, outstanding visual and literary artists of the last three centuries have made the ancient catastrophe their own, expressing contemporary concerns in diverse media, from paintings, prints, and sculpture, to theatrical performances, photography, and film. This volume, featuring the works of artists such as Piranesi, Fragonard, Kaufmann, Ingres, Chasseriau, and Alma-Tadema, as well as Duchamp, Dali, Rothko, Rauschenberg, and Warhol, surveys the legacy of Pompeii in the modern imagination under the three overarching rubrics of decadence, apocalypse, and resurrection. The section on decadence investigates the perception of Pompeii as a site of impending and well-deserved doom due to the excesses of the ancient Romans, such as paganism, licentiousness, greed, gluttony, and violence. The catastrophic demise of the Vesuvian sites has become inexorably linked with the understanding of antiquity, turning Pompeii into a fundamental allegory for apocalypse, to which all subsequent disasters (natural or man-made) are related, from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 to Hiroshima, Nagasaki, 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina. The section on resurrection examines how Pompeii and the Vesuvian cities have been reincarnated in modern guise through both scientific archaeology and fantasy, as each successive cultural reality superimposed its values and ideas on the distant past

Looking east : western artists and the allure of Japan by Helen Burnham( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A craze for all things Japanese in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries brought a correspondingly radical shift in Western art, dubbed Japonisme. Leading artists, including Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, were inspired by Japanese art and culture to create works of singular beauty. This lavishly illustrated publication explores an extraordinary moment of cross-cultural exchange by presenting a selection of major paintings, prints, drawings and decorative arts from the renowned collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Masterpieces by European and American artists are shown along with rare objects, paintings and prints from the Museum's Japanese collection, which is one of the finest in the world. Among the Western artists influenced by Japonisme, and included here, are Henry Roderick Newman, Frank Weston Benson, Alfred Stevens, John La Farge, Arthur Wesley Dow, Margaret Jordan Patterson, James McNeill Whistler, Edvard Munch, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, James Ensor, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, Henri Rivière and Frederick Elkington. Their works are juxtaposed with works by Japanese artists such as Utagawa Hiroshige, Katsushika Hokusai, Okumura Masanobu, Maruyama Okyo, Kubo Shunman, Isoda Koryusai and Kikugawa Eizan, among many others. With its two introductory essays, emphasizing first Western and then Eastern perspectives, and its four thematically organized chapters, Looking East imparts the sense of discovery and excitement that characterized the development of Japonisme in Europe and North America."--Provided by publisher

Stéphane La Rue : retracer la peinture by Marie-Eve Beaupré( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in French and English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce catalogue exhaustif s'avère l'occasion de faire le point sur la démarche subtile de Stéphane La Rue, une figure dominante de la nouvelle génération de peintres montréalais. L'ouvrage comprend près d'une cinquantaine de reproductions des oeuvres qu'il a réalisées de 1993 à 2007 ainsi que les essais des commissaires Louise Déry et Marie-Eve Beaupré. Depuis plus d'une décennie, l'artiste explore un périmètre de production restreint à l'intérieur duquel il examine les phénomènes de perception face au monochrome blanc et les innombrables possibilités d'effets illusionnistes du tableau. Quatre auteurs invités offrent également aux lecteurs des points de vue sur le travail de Stéphane La Rue. L'exposition Stéphane La Rue. Retracer la peinture, organisée par la Galerie de l'UQAM en collaboration avec le Musée national des beauxarts du Québec, a été présentée à Montréal du 22 février au 29 mars 2008. Cette publication a remporté un prix au concours Grafika en 2009
