Richard Estes by Richard Estes( Book )
10 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 213 libraries worldwide
La exposición recorrerá la trayectoria pictórica de Estes desde los años sesenta hasta hoy, con la intención de documentar su desarrollo como principal fundador y uno de los grandes del fotorrealismo americano. Mediante la utilización de la fotografía como fuente visual directa, el artista se especializó en representaciones de paisajes reales. Sin embargo, a diferencia de otros fotorrealistas que traspasan directamente la foto al lienzo, él la utiliza sólo como punto de partida, tomando varias vistas del lugar escogido y jugando con ellas, hasta llegar a la imagen definitiva, que convierte en una suerte de ilusión óptica
Pissarro by Camille Pissarro( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in 4 languages and held by 166 libraries worldwide
Humble and colossal, as his friend Cezanne described him, Camille Pissarro is at once the most important and the least familiar of the leading Impressionist painters. As a mentor to that group, which he helped to convene, Pissarro was responsible for drafting the statutes of the artists' cooperative that launched the famous Impressionist exhibitions, which were the first to take art outside the academic confines of Paris' salon exhibitions; he was also the only painter to participate in all eight of those landmark shows, from 1874 to 1886, and was the first painter to develop and sustain the plein air practice for which the Impressionists are famed. This volume presents Pissarro as one of the great pioneers of modern art, appraising his career through five thematic and chrological chapters that offer a tour of his preferred landscapes and cities: On the Road to Impressionism, Louveciennes-London-Louveciennes 1869-72, Pontoise Revisited 1872-82, Eragny Landscapes 1884-1903 and City Views. It includes essays by some of the most rewned Pissarro scholars: Richard R. Brettell, who writes on the artist's involvement with anarchism; Joachim Pissarro (one of the authors of the Pissarro catalogue raisonne) on Monet and Pissarro's relationship in the 1890s; and Guillermo Solana on the motif of the road in Pissarro.Born on the island of Saint Thomas in the Antilles into a wealthy family of Jewish origin, Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) studied painting in Paris and Venezuela. He met Claude Monet, Auguste Reir and Alfred Sisley in 1859. Pissarro acted as pater familias t only to the Impressionist group, but also to the major Post-Impressionists, including Georges Seurat, Paul Cezanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin
Renoir : intimacy by Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza( Book )
7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
"The filmmaker Jean Renoir described how his father 'looked at flowers, women and clouds in the sky as other men touch and caress.' In contrast to the habitual conception of Impressionism, which reduces it to "the purely visual", this book, as the exhibition it accompanies, singles out the central role of tactile sensations in Pierre-Auguste Renoir's canvases, which are evident in all the different phases of his career and which he expressed in a wide range of genres, including group scenes, portraits and nudes, as well as still lifes and landscapes. This publication comprising more than 70 works by the artist, from museums and collections world-wide, reveals the way Renoir made use of the tactile qualities of volume, material and textures as a vehicle to depict intimacy in its different forms (social intimacy, among friends and family, or erotic) and how that imagery connects the work and the viewer to the sensuality of the brushstroke and the pictorial surface"--
Cézanne : site/non-site by Guillermo Solana( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 126 libraries worldwide
Antonio López : Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, 28 June-25 September 2011, Museo de Bellas Artes, Bilbao, 10 October-22 January 2012 by Antonio López-García( Book )
9 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
La exposición recoge la producción reciente del artista y, a partir de ella, se dan las claves de interpretación de su carrera anterior. Una parte del catálogo explora los grandes temas de la creación de Antonio López de las dos últimas décadas, que se reducen esencialmente a tres, la ciudad (siempre Madrid), el árbol y la figura humana, que se corresponden con los tres medios artísticos que el artista domina: la pintura, el dibujo y la escultura. La otra parte importante del catálogo viene a ser una mirada retrospectiva hacia la carrera de Antonio López, presentando su evolución desde sus orígenes a su primera madurez
The art of Cartier : 24 October 2012 / 17 February 2013 by Cartier (Firme)( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
"The Art of Cartier is published to coincide with the exhibition of more than 400 pieces from the historic collection of the legendary French jeweler Cartier at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid. Cartier was founded in Paris in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, although it was his three grandsons--Jacques, Louis and Pierre--who were responsible for launching the brand name worldwide. Indeed, so successful were they that we can read across from the story of Cartier to the wider history of the twentieth century: a Panther clip brooch bought by Wallis Simpson in 1949; the now-infamous Ruby Suite presented to Elizabeth Taylor by her third husband, Mike Todd, in 1957. The Art of Cartier offers a comprehensive selection of the finest jewels that Cartier has repurchased over the years, in an attempt to assemble a representative collection of the Maison's production and to show the evolution of its style during the first half of the twentieth century. The items on exhibit range from the great tiaras in the so-called "garland" style of the early twentieth century to Art Deco jewels and others inspired by exotic places (including the famous Tutti Frutti bracelet of diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires all nestled in a frieze of foliage), gold jewelry of the 1930s and 1940s and one-off commissions for leading personalities of the century such as Coco Chanel, María Félix and Grace Kelly. This sumptuous volume includes 950 color photographs and introduces us to one of the world's finest jewelry collections, allowing us to appreciate the creativity and mastery of Cartier's designers and artist-jewelers over the course of more than 100 years."--Books.google.com
Heroínas ( Book )
13 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 64 libraries worldwide
La exposición es una especie de "ciudad de las mujeres" centrada especialmente en el ciclo de la modernidad, desde el siglo XIX hasta la actualidad. Siguiendo un orden temático, se exploran los escenarios y las vocaciones de las heroínas: la iconografía de la soledad, el trabajo, la embriaguez, el deporte, la guerra, la magia, la religión, la lectura y la pintura. Se yuxtaponen obras de distintas épocas, lenguajes y medios artísticos para provocar una reflexión sobre lo que cambia y lo que permanece a través de esas diferencias. Y en cada capítulo, una o varias voces de mujeres artistas, sobre todo contemporáneas, responden a las imágenes creadas por sus colegas varones

The sign of the beaver by Elizabeth George Speare( Book )
4 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 41 libraries worldwide
When his father returns East to collect the rest of the family, 13-year-old Matt is left alone to guard his family's newly built homestead. One day, Matt is brutally stung when he robs a bee tree for honey. He returns to consciousness to discover that his many stings have been treated by an old Native American and his grandson. Matt offers his only book as thanks, but the old man instead asks Matt to teach his grandson Attean to read. Both boys are suspicious, but Attean comes each day for his lesson. In the mornings, Matt tries to entice Attean with tales from Robinson Crusoe, while in the afternoons, Attean teaches Matt about wilderness survival and Native American culture. The boys become friends in spite of themselves, and their inevitable parting is a moving tribute to the ability of shared experience to overcome prejudice. The Sign of the Beaver was a Newbery Honor Book; author Elizabeth Speare has also won the Newbery Medal twice, for The Witch of Blackbird Pond and The Bronze Bow. (Ages 12 and older)

Gauguin y los orígenes del simbolismo by Paul Gauguin( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 37 libraries worldwide
La muestra pone de manifiesto una serie de transformaciones de la práctica pictórica a partir de 1880, y se centra en la figura de Gauguin, quien crea un nuevo lenguaje pictórico que defiende la arbitrariedad subjetiva del color y de la línea, frente la supuesta objetividad de la mirada impresionista, postulando además un nuevo retorno a los orígenes en imágenes de la tradición pastoril, y pasando posteriormente a una exaltación de lo demoníaco y a una guerra exacerbada del artista contra el mundo moderno y su racionalidad. Se analizan las relaciones del artista con algunos de sus predecesores, como Van Gogh, Pissarro, Dégas o Renoir, así como la impronta dejada en sus seguidores y las conexiones existentes con diversos artistas españoles
Los siervos de Isssco by Guillermo Solana( Book )
8 editions published between 1980 and 1986 in Spanish and held by 36 libraries worldwide
Los siervos de ISSSCO intentan alzarse contra este pulpo invisible que atenaza sus vidas. La lucha se encarniza; las escaramuzas a nivel de espionaje, de intriga, de sabotaje e incluso de guerrilla, mantienen al lector en una tensión que no decrece en ninguna línea. Es ficción en la medida en la que la novela constituye una extrapolación de lo que hoy sucede. Es ciencia por el estudio detallado y solvente de toda la estructura económica y sus implicaciones sociales que caracterizan a una sociedad multinacional
Obras maestras de Budapest : del Renacimiento a las vanguardias by Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza( Book )
8 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Obras maestras de Budapest. Del Renacimiento a las Vanguardias' es el catálogo de la exposición del mismo título que reúne en Madrid noventa obras de altísima calidad procedentes del Museo de Bellas Artes de Budapest y de la Galería Nacional de Hungría. El Museo de Bellas Artes de Budapest abrió sus puertas el 1 de diciembre de 1906, aunque había sido constituido diez años antes, en 1896. Sus colecciones, de perfil internacional, fueron creciendo a través de donaciones y compras, como la realizada a Miklós Esterházy, en 1870, que se considera uno de los pilares del museo actual, o la del conde János Pálffy, en 1912. La Galería Nacional de Hungría, dedicada exclusivamente al arte del país, se estableció oficialmente en 1957 y desde 1974 tiene su sede en el complejo del Palacio Real de Buda, donde se exhiben grandes obras de arte que datan desde el medievo hasta el siglo XX. En la selección de piezas de esta publicación el lector encontrará no solo pinturas, sino también dibujos y esculturas que son reflejo de la riqueza y calidad de las colecciones custodiadas en ambas instituciones.00Exhibition: Museo Nacional Thyssen - Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain (18.02-28.03.2017)
