Howard Hodgkin : paintings 1992-2007 by Howard Hodgkin( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Hodgkin (b. 1932) is among the most important artists working in Britain today. Nominally abstract, his paintings are, in his words, "representational pictures of emotional situations." Sumptuously illustrated, this book focuses on a selection of Hodgkin's paintings from the last fifteen years. Conceived independently, Howard Hodgkin: Paintings 1992-2007 will complement recent, retrospective exhibitions and publications, providing a critical coda to current scholarship on this artist's work. Essays by Richard Morphet and Anthony Lane bring together personal responses to Hodgkin's work from this period, with special reference to works in the exhibition at Yale and Cambridge; accounts of the development of his art in the preceding decades; observations on the artist's relationship between his personal circumstances and his art; and discussion of some of the links between Hodgkin's vision and the work of selected other artists in England, continental Europe and the United States of America."--Jacket

Degas : a passion for perfection by Jane Munro( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A beautiful celebration of six decades of work by Edgar Degas, published in the centennial year of the artist's death. Edgar Degas's (1834-1917) relentless experimentation with technical procedures is a hallmark of his lifelong desire to learn. The numerous iterations of compositions and poses suggest an intense self-discipline, as well as a refusal to accept any creative solution as definitive or finite. Published in the centenary year of the artist's death, this book presents an exceptional array of Degas's work, including paintings, drawings, pastels, etchings, monotypes, counter proofs, and sculpture, with approximately sixty key works from private and public collections in Europe and the United States, some of them published here for the first time. Shown together, the impressive works represent well over half a century of innovation and artistic production. Essays by leading Degas scholars and conservation scientists explore his practice and recurring themes of the human figure and landscape. The book opens with a study of Degas's debt to the Old Masters, and it concludes with a consideration of his artistic legacy and his influence on leading artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach, Ryan Gander, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, R. B. Kitaj, Pablo Picasso, and Walter Sickert

Colour: the art & science of illuminated manuscripts( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition that celebrates the bicentenary of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge with a display of its finest illuminated manuscripts. Of all the medieval and Renaissance arts - from sculptures, ivories, frescoes and stained glass to easel and wall paintings - it is manuscript illuminations, protected inside volumes, that best preserve the glowing colours and precious metals that would have dazzled their original spectators. The focus of this exciting and innovative exhibition is on COLOUR: it integrates scientific and art historical analyses of painting materials and techniques with studies on the manuscripts' historic contexts of production, including the relationships between artists and patrons. Identifications of the pigments' chemical composition and methods of application are considered alongside their aesthetic impact as well as the multiple dimensions and meanings of colour appreciated by medieval and Renaissance viewers. Over 150 manuscripts are displayed in the exhibition dating from the 8th to the 19th century and all are catalogued and fully illustrated here. The manuscripts are grouped in 14 thematic sections each of which is introduced by an essay that includes further relevant illustrations and presents the scientific and art historical analyses in a broader cultural context. The majority of the exhibits are from the Museum's collection and the main focus is on Western European illumination, but examples of Byzantine, Armenian, Persian and Sanskrit manuscripts are also included. In addition there are special loans from other Cambridge, British and European collections. The catalogue entries and introductory essays are written by a team of leading manuscript scholars, scientists and conservators who offer an integrated, cross-disciplinary approach and new insights into the art of illumination."--
Splendours of Flanders by Alain Arnould( Book )

18 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book records an important exhibition of late medieval Flemish art in Cambridge collections, held at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, from July to September 1993. Included are paintings, sculpture, tapestry and coins from the Fitzwilliam Museum and Queens' College, and illuminated manuscripts, printed books, and furniture from Cambridge University Library, from Girton, Gonville & Caius, King's, Peterhouse, St John's, Sidney Sussex and Trinity Colleges, and from the British Library and Holkham Hall. Many of the manuscripts belonged to famous libraries of the Burgundian Netherlands, and all the leading illuminators then active in Flanders are represented. Three panels from Queens' College, recently attributed to the Master of the View of Sainte-Gudule, are perhaps the finest late medieval paintings from Brussels in Britain."--BOOK JACKET
