Goya and the spirit of enlightenment by Francisco Goya( Book )

Goya : images of women by Francisco Goya( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francisco Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) created magnificent paintings, tapestry designs, prints, and drawings over the course of his long and productive career. Women frequently appeared as the subjects of Goya's works, from his brilliantly painted cartoons for the Royal Tapestry Factory to his stunning portraits of some of the most powerful women in Madrid. This book is the first to examine the representations of women within Goya's multifaceted art, and in so doing, it sheds new light on the evolution of his artistic creativity as well as the roles assumed by women in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Spain."--Jacket

12 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surveys the small-scale works painted by Goya throughout his career. It includes all surviving sketches for his tapestry cartoons ... Sketches for his major altarpieces ...

The book also discusses and reproduces Goya's tragicomic paintings of witchcraft, the more sombre scenes of violence and resistance ... his celebrated small portraits, and the miniature lowlife scenes he painted"--Cover

Turner and the masters by Tate Britain (Gallery)( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is widely regarded as the greatest painter Britain has ever produced. Despite the many books and exhibitions that have been devoted to him, there is one aspect of his extraordinary oeuvre that has never been thoroughly examined. Uniquely in the history of European art, he took on all comers, past and present, that he considered worthy of a challenge, creating his own images in their styles. These works were both acts of homage and a sophisticated form of art criticism, demonstrating his understanding of great art and his ability to equal or better the most celebrated exponents of the landscape tradition. No artist, however revered, was considered beyond challenge. This unique habit is clearly a key to understanding Turner's art, yet the issue is one that has so far never been thoroughly addressed on Turner and on British art of the 18th and 19th centuries. In "Turner and the Masters" leading authorities explore this fascinating aspect of his career, revealing new detail on the debts and rivalries that shaped his work in often unexpected ways. Accompanying a major touring exhibition that brings together works by Turner with masterpieces by Claude, Canaletto, Ruisdael, Van de Velde, Poussin, Rubens and Rembrandt, as well as by Turner's contemporaries including Constable and Bonnington, this book firmly positions Turner in the company of the greatest painters of all time. The contributors include Guillaume Faroult, Sarah Monks, Martin Myrone, Kathleen Nicholson, Philippa Simpson and Ian Warrell."--Jacket

"The Museo del Prado houses the largest known collection of works by Jheronimus Bosch. Among its holdings are 'The Adoration of the Magi' and 'The Garden of Earthly Delights' triptychs, as well as the original of 'The Haywain', making it the "home of Bosch" and the perfect institution to hold a major exhibition marking the quincentenary of the artist's death. This magnificent, richly illustrated book reproduces these masterpieces and other recently cleaned and restored paintings, and reveals hitherto unknown facets of Bosch's art."--Inside flap

Paintings of the Prado by Museo del Prado( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The shortlist of great museums of Western art must include the Prado Museum in Madrid. For sheer quality, its painting collections rival those of the Louvre in Paris, the Uffizi in Florence, and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg." "When placed side by side, the works in Paintings of the Prado amount to a glorious, full-color survey of European art from the early fifteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth."--Jacket
The Spanish portrait : from El Greco to Picasso by Spanish portrait from El Greco to Picasso (Exhibition :( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Spanish Portrait from El Greco to Picasso is an unprecedented survey of Spanish portrait painting and the development of this genre in Spanish art from the late fifteenth century to the early decades of the twentieth. Drawing on the collections of the Museo del Prado and other major international collections, it is the first book to cover more than 500 years of Spanish art from the viewpoint of the portrait. It features a selection of eighty-seven works and includes all the leading names in this field. This book is the first to present the stylistic evolution of the Spanish portrait, the differing social implications of the genre in Spain, the formulation by the various sitters of the self-image they wished to convey to posterity, and the various representational devices and strategies used by the artists of each period."--Jacket
Late Raphael by Raphael( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museo del Prado, this book focuses on a crucial but hitherto neglected part of Raphael's oeuvre: the work he and his pupils executed in Rome during the seven years from 1513 to the artist's death in 1520. Nearly ninety works--including paintings such as Saint Cecile and Portrait of Baldassere Castiglione, as well as drawings and a tapestry--illustrate the ways in which Raphael employed a range of technical devices, many of which were highly novel and enjoyed considerable influence. Raphael's workshop methods eventually became a model for the great artistic enterprises of the seventeenth century, notably those of Rubens, Bernini, and Pietro da Cortona. Essays by Tom Henry, Paul Joannides, Ana González Mozo, and Bruno Martín survey Raphael's late paintings in chronological order, explore his range of styles, and investigate the role of his workshop in the design and production of his pictures."--Publisher's website

Goya drawings from the Prado by Francisco Goya( Book )

4 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The young Van Dyck( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the age of twenty-two, Anthony Van Dyck (1599-1641) had produced more than 160 paintings, many of them ambitious compositions of remarkable quality. This book presents the work created during the eight years between 1613, when he was just fourteen, to his departure for Italy from Antwerp in October 1621. Were the paintings he created during these years his only legacy, he would still be recognized as one of the greatest artists of the seventeenth century. Van Dyck's precocious talents are brilliantly demonstrated in the many important works reproduced here, among them such strikingly original masterpieces as The Taking of Christ and Saint Jerome in the Desert. Others--Christ's Entry into Jerusalem and The Lamentation, for example--reveal Van Dyck at his most experimental, in search of new ways of increasing the visual impact of his compositions. Van Dyck was also one of the first painters to rise to the challenge of Rubens's omnipresent influence, evident in works such as The Crowning with Thorns."--Publisher's website
