Even today, some seventy-five years after Gaudi's death, his fanciful, exuberant buildings define Barcelona's cityscape and continue to influence architects, sculptors, and designers. Perhaps best known for the dynamic, sculptural facades, found on such buildings as the church of the Sagrada Familia and Casa Mila, Gaudi is as much respected as a technological innovator as a daring stylist. In this enlightening volume, a concise, knowledgeable text by the director of the Royal Gaudi Chair at the Polytechnical University of Catalonia (Barcelona) combines with striking images by a well-known architectural photographer to provide a new perspective on Gaudi's remarkable career. The text covers the full range of his oeuvre, describing early assignments in the 1870s as a draftsman for leading architects in Barcelona, the innovative buildings he created for the Guell Palace and Estate, daring new structural solutions at Bellesguard, architecture inspired by nature at the Casa Calvet and in the Park Guell, and the construction of his unfinished masterpiece, the Church of the Sagrada Familia, which occupied him until his death. The author traces all the influences that led to his definitive style, from his fascination with the Orient and neogothicism to his affinity for naturalism and specific geometric forms. Brilliantly illustrated, this incisive overview of Gaudi's visionary work is ideal for those who delight in his architecture as well as those who look forward to traveling to Spain to see his monumental legacy....

Best known for his amusing depictions of peasants, landscapes, and Bosch-like fantasies, Bruegel also created a wide range of highly original interpretations of religious themes in an era marked by religious controversies. Over a career of two decades as both a printmaker and a painter, he found his artistic niche in Europe's leading center of international trade, the emerging "capital of capitalism," Antwerp. This new full-length study examines all works by Pieter Bruegel, including the new Madrid canvas, within the wider setting of art during his lifetime. All of his drawings, prints, and paintings on both canvas and panel are examined for form and content with comprehensive analysis. In addition, interpretation of the full range of Flemish paintings and prints during his generation is presented through the lens of Hieronymus Cock, Bruegel's own print publisher, "At the Sign of the Four Winds." Within this spectrum Bruegel's uniqueness and mastery emerges clearly. While scholars will appreciate the novel insights of this comprehensive re-examination of Pieter Bruegel, its highly accessible text will introduce newcomers and the general public to the delights of this inventive, trenchant, yet often amusing visual commentator on the human condition. All readers will relish the large-scale reproductions and frequent details in full color of his entire oeuvre in all media. This handsome, large-scale volume will form the definitive study and accessible introduction to the life and art of Pieter Bruegel...

Some of her subjects grow in isolation, on remote mountainsides, private estates, or nature preserves; others maintain a proud, though often precarious, existence in the midst of civilization. All, however, share a mysterious beauty perfected by age and the power to connect us to a sense of time and nature much greater than ourselves. It is this beauty, and this power, that Moon captures in her remarkable photographs.This handsome volume presents nearly seventy of Moons finest tree portraits as full-page duotone plates. The pictured trees include the tangled, hollow-trunked yewsA some more than a thousand years oldA that grow in English churchyards; the baobabs of Madagascar, called A"upside-down treesa because of the curious disproportion of their giant trunks and modest branches; and the fantastical dragons-blood trees, red-sapped and umbrella-shaped, that grow only on the island of Socotra, off the Horn of Africa.Moons narrative captions describe the natural and cultural history of each individual tree, while Todd Forrest, vice president for horticulture and living collections at The New York Botanical Garden, provides a concise introduction to the biology and preservation of ancient trees. An essay by the critic Steven Brown defines Moons unique place in a tradition of tree photography extending from William Henry Fox Talbot to Sally Mann, and explores the challenges and potential of the tree as a subject for art...

    Hieronymus Bosch [Larry Silver] (Tapa Dura)

    - Autor: Larry Silver- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Dura- Editorial: Abbeville Press- ISBN-13: 9780789209016- Páginas: 424- Dimensiones: 33.17cm. x 28.35cm. x 4.11cm.- Peso: 3.69 kg.- Descripción:Larry Silver, a professor of art history at the University of Pennsylvania, elucidates A"The Garden of Earthly Delightsa and the nightmarish circus it presents, as well as a host of Boschs other magnificent works. He draws upon new research into his subjects cultural milieu, belief system and artistic intentions. His explications of the paintings and their influence on other artists, most notably Pieter Bruegel the Elder, contain many fresh insights. . . . Bosch has 310 illustrations, most in full and high quality color, a vast bibliography and index. Its a big book and will well reward the many hours needed to digest it. -- Bloomsbury ReviewFour hundred little people frolic au naturel with overgrown songbirds and raspberries; a pudgy blue demon serenades a fashionable young couple with a tune piped through his own elongated nose; a knife-wielding set of disembodied ears stalks the damned through hell. The phantasmagoric imagery of Hieronymus Bosch (d. 1516) has been the source of widespread interest ever since the painters lifetime, and is still so enigmatic that scholars have theorized that it contains hidden astrological, alchemical, or even heretical meanings. Yet none of these theories has ever seemed to provide an adequate understanding of Boschs work. Moreover, the considerable professional success that the artist enjoyed in his native Hertogenbosch, not to mention his membership in a traditional religious organization, suggests that he pursued not a sinister secret agenda but simply his personal artistic vision.This intriguing new monograph by noted art historian Larry Silver interprets that artistic vision with admirable lucidity: it explains how Boschs understanding of human sin, morality, and punishment, which was conceived in an era of powerful apocalyptic expectation, shaped his dramatic visualizations of hell and of the temptations of even the most steadfast saints. Silvers account of Boschs artistic development is one of the first to benefit from recent technical investigations of the paintings, as well as from the reexamination of the artists drawings in relation to his paintings. Hieronymus Bosch is also unique in how securely it places its subjects work in the broader history of painting in the Low Countries: Silver identifies sources of Boschs iconography in a wide range of fifteenth-century panel paintings, manuscript illuminations, and prints, and describes how, despite their own religiousness, Boschs pictures helped inspire the secular landscape and genre scenes of later Netherlandish painters. Augmented by 310 illustrations, most in color, including many dramatic close-ups of Boschs intricately imagined nightmare scenes, this is the definitive book on a perennially fascinating artist...
