Cluny : in search of God's lost empire by Edwin Mullins( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 368 libraries worldwide
A thousand years ago, the French abbey of Cluny was the hub of one of the most powerful empires of the Middle Ages and the spiritual heart of Europe. Cluny was a Benedictine monastery in Burgundy, its church a breathtaking structure of towers, roofs, walls, and windows almost 600 feet long and 100 feet high--a true wonder of the world. Reconstructing the lives, beliefs, and ambitions of Cluny's countless monks and legendary abbots, this book discusses the abbey and its network of 1,500 dependent monasteries in the context of medieval European history. Exploring a monastery like no other, this historical account investigates Cluny's enduring legacy through the great cultural innovations that the abbey sponsored, from the famous medieval pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela to some of the most magnificent churches in all of France and England.--From publisher description
Sir David Wilkie : William Bethune, his wife and daughter : 1804, oil on canvas : National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh ( visu )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
'1000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World' is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented - the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting. The late 18th and early 19th centuries are regarded as a radical period in British art, in which artists responded to industrialisation and social change with new forms of genre painting and portraiture. Names like Wright of Derby, McTaggart, Wilkie, Raeburn and Millais symbolise a period of upheaval - a time of both reflection and reorientation. Sir John Everett Millais: OPHELIA (1851-52) Joseph Wright of Derby: AN EXPERIMENT ON A BIRD IN THE AIR PUMP (1767/68) William McTaggart: THE STORM (1890) Sir David Wilkie: WILLIAM BETHUNE, HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER (1804) Sir Henry Raeburn: REVEREND ROBERT WALKER SKATING (1784)

The popes of Avignon : a century in exile by Edwin Mullins( Book )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 277 libraries worldwide
Like the finest medieval tapestry, this narrative history masterfully weaves together the sweeping events surrounding what has become known as the "Babylonian captivity" of the popes into the broader story of 14th-century Europe-one of the most turbulent times in the continent's history. It was a time of fear, ferocity, and religious agony, which saw the suppression of the Knights Templar and the Cathars, the first onslaught of the plague, and the beginning of the Hundred Years' War. The century also produced some of the greatest writers and artists in the western tradition, including Giotto, Boccaccio, Petrarch, and Chaucer. Central to this period was the movement of the papal seat from Rome to Avignon in the south of France, where seven successive popes held power from 1309-1377. The drama, intrigue, and tumult associated with the papacy in exile forms the perfect lens through which to clearly see a Europe making the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance

Monsieur René Magritte by Adrian Maben( visu )
26 editions published between 1978 and 2008 in English and German and held by 209 libraries worldwide
"The house where artist René Magritte lived and worked was left untouched by his widow after his death in 1967 and it tells much about the man who found inspiration in everyday surroundings. Childhood experiences and the suicide of Magritte's mother are recalled by the artist himself in archive footage and he explains how this tragic event later inspired themes in his paintings. The film focuses on the recurring influences of certain objects and places in Magritte's art, his experimentation with futurism and his attraction to the work of Chirico before discovering his own unique surrealist style."--Container

Alfred Wallis : Cornish primitive by Edwin Mullins( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
Wallis was a semi-literate Cornish fisherman, a little mentally unbalanced and largely deaf, who took up painting at the age of seventy, never having received any tuition. He painted largely out of loneliness, selling his pictures for a few pence to anyone who wanted them. He died in a workhouse above Penzance at the age of eighty-seven. Wallis used to paint old scraps of cardboard, most of them oddly shaped and supplied by the local grocer. He insisted on using ship's paint, a medium which he understood, and he employed very few colours. His subject was usually the sea and boats - scenes he had known during his early days as an Atlantic seaman and offshore fisherman. Painting was for him a dip into the memories of the past. Despite his lack of training, during his lifetime Wallis had a few distinguished patrons, for the most part artists, scholars and museum officials, among whom were Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and H. S. Ede (then at the Tate Gallery)
