The invisible masterpiece by Hans Belting( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 323 libraries worldwide
"The Invisible Masterpiece is a history of the modern work of art, from its emergence c.1800 through to the 1960s. Before 1800, art-works were either imitative (portraits, landscapes) or narrative (history painting), but under the impact of Romantic modernity the physical object - a painted canvas, say, or a sculpture - was reinterpreted in a novel way. Now the work of art was visible testimony to the artist's attempt to achieve the impossible - absolute or ultimate art. The 'invisible masterpiece', then, is an unattainable ideal, an ideal that has both bewitched and bewildered artists." "The Invisible Masterpiece is an unusual reconstruction of the history of the work of art since 1800, in which Hans Belting explores and explains the dreams and fears, the triumphs and failures of modernity's painters and sculptors."--BOOK JACKET

"No European city has undergone as much upheaval in recent years as Moscow. The stage for the fall of a world empire and the rebirth of a globally connected Russia, Moscow has been transformed from a monochrome capital city to a new Babylon iridescent with neon lights. Karl Schlogel's Moscow offers a portrait of this international metropolis in transformation." "First published in German in 1984, this debut English edition of Moscow has been updated with a new introduction and conclusion covering the post-Soviet period. Schlogel described the modern history of Moscow from various aspects, as he explores the streets and unearths the rich histories of the capital's buildings, monuments and parks." "Moscow is a city struggling to define its global role in the 21st century. Karl Schlogel's book provides a valuable window into the complex and resilient character of this ever-evolving capital and its citizens."--BOOK JACKET
