  • Baroque & Rococo

    Karton Kapak
    An era of exuberant creativity is the focus of this magnificently illustrated, competitively priced new art book. Baroque art was characterized by unbridled emotion, intricate decorative flourishes, and a dramatic use of light, reaching its summit in works such as Bernini’s magnificent altarpiece, The Ecstasy of St. Theresa. Over time, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate and sensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomized by the opulent paintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced exploration of both movements guides the reader through more than a century of art history—exploring the lives and works of sculptors such as Bernini, painters such as Watteau, Boucher, Rubens, and Hogarth, and architects such as Christopher Wren.

  • Caravaggio (Smart)

    Sert Kapak
    Excluded for centuries by academia, Caravaggio (1571-1610) has at last emerged from near-oblivion to take his rightful place in the history of Western art, alongside the greatest masters of the Renaissance and of the 17th century. Caravaggio 's work represents a complete artistic revolution. He began by setting out to restore the material substance of things with a kind of "absolute realism". Then he took this realism into religious painting, choosing his models among ordinary working people and achieving dazzling mastery in the expression of feelings. Thus he became the first champion of the dignity of the real against the prestige value of the ideal. His He-an adventure novel in its own right-counts for a lot in his current popularity. Caravaggio was a violent man and that violence ultimately sealed his fate: condemned to death for murder, he became a longtime fugitive from justice.

  • A Romance with the Landscape: Realism to Impressionism

    Nineteenth-century France produced a cadre of artists whose first impulse was to escape the turmoil of Paris and seek refuge in the countryside, where they created an art grounded in their fresh responses to the natural world. Such artists as Charles Emile Jacque and Jean-Francois Millet discovered a quiet heroism and even a spiritual quality in those working the land, while others, like Julien Dupr©, featured attractive young laborers toiling in picturesque settings that did not hint of hard work or the often harsh realities of agricultural labor. Social and political ideologies are coded into the landscape in subtle ways in many paintings. Rarely seen paintings from public and private collections illustrate the metamorphosis from the neoclassical ideal to the Modern over the course of the nineteenth century through the lens of landscape art. Contributors include Gabriel P. Weisberg and Janet Whitmore.

  • Hong Kong Art: Culture and Decolonization

    Karton Kapak
    Hong Kong Art is the first comprehensive survey of contemporary art from Hong Kong presented within the changing social and political context of the territory’s 1997 handover from British to Chinese sovereignty. Tracing a distinctive and increasingly vibrant art scene from the late 1960s through the present, David Clarke discusses a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, video, and installations, as well as other kinds of visual production such as architecture, fashion, graphic design, and graffiti.Clarke shows how a sense of local identity emerged in Hong Kong as the transition approached and found expression in the often politicized art produced. Given the recent international exposure of mainland Chinese contemporary art, this book considers the uniqueness of the art of China’s most cosmopolitan city. With a modern visual culture that was flourishing even when the People’s Republic was still closed to the outside world, Hong Kong has established itself as an exemplary site for both local and transnational elements to formulate into brilliant and groundbreaking art.The author writes about individual artists and art works with a detail that will appeal to artists, curators, and art historians, as well as to postcolonial scholars, cultural studies scholars, and others.

  • Body Politics: The Female Image in Luba Art and the Sculpture of Alison Saar (Library of Crime Classics)

    Karton Kapak
    Although the sculpture of African American artist Alison Saar is influenced by African objects and ideas, this volume does not seek to establish direct linkages, opting instead to present dialogues. It features an extended interchange between noted Africanist and art historian Mary Nooter Roberts and Saar, and through a series of photographed images, it also establishes a visual dialogue between Saar's frequently large-scale sculptural pieces and the intimate and intricate works of the Luba peoples of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

  • The Gold of the Pharaphs

    Karton Kapak
    In the popular imagination, Ancient Egypt is defined by its monumental architecture and treasure-packed royal tombs.

Fortunately, since the late 19th century, archaeologists have been able to save a large part of the treasure in tombs that had not been plundered. This book, through its text and illustrations, gives the reader exceptional insight into the genius of the ancient Egyptians, for whom gold was "the flesh of the gods".
