"In an exhibition shown from 20 January to 27 May 1996, the Kunsthalle Tubingen presented a thoughtfully prepared selection of many of Renoir's most important paintings from his more than five decades of creative life. The first comprehensive, scholarly retrospective ever devoted to the artist in Germany and presented only in Tubingen, the exhibition offered a view of a significant cross-section of the painter's complete oeuvre. Each of the works exhibited is illustrated in this volume in a full-page plate. Paintings representing the full spectrum of Renoir's themes and including some of the most noteworthy works in major international collections and museums in such cities as Washington, D.C., New York, Philadelphia, Sao Paulo, Stockholm, Madrid, London, Paris, St. Petersburg, Zurich, Tokyo, Hiroshima and Berlin - all were provided on loan for the exhibition - provide enlightening insights into the work of this artistic genius."--BOOK JACKET

Scotland the Real the representation of traditional music in Scottish tourism by Lesley Stevenson( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This thesis explores how Scottish traditional music has been represented to tourist audiences, through systems of representation such as travel literature, recordings and traditional music events (including folk festivals, tourist shows and sessions). It argues that an explicit concern with the ?real? has been a recurrent, although contested, discursive trope in such representations. In particular, the thesis demonstrates how paradigmatic shifts in conceptions of authenticity have wrought ideological changes on tourist-oriented depictions of Scottish folk music. The thesis identifies four generic categories of authenticity which have mediated touristic representations of Scottish traditional music, namely: authenticity of text; authenticity of performer; authenticity of context; and authenticity of locality. The first of these was of significance throughout the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth century, as folksong collectors, travel writers and guidebooks authors based their judgements of musical authenticity upon the printed text. The folk revival of the 1950s resulted in a fundamental rupture in discursive formations of authenticity, leading to assessments of the ?real? being based upon performers, their backgrounds and musical upbringings. As the folk revival developed, such assessments became predicated upon the context of the musical performance, and, in particular, the extent to which events succeeded in minimising the performer-audience stratification and facilitating communal participation. Finally, the geographical scope of the musical expression has recently become particularly significant in this regard: practitioners frequently regard localised musical identities as ?real?, while deriding the homogeneity and commercial connotations of transnational musical identities such as ?Celtic music"
