Rainer Metzger "Gustav Klimt: Drawings & Watercolors"

2682.00 руб

Gustav Klimt the painter has always tended to overshadow Gustav Klimt the draughtsman. One of the most fascinating representatives of the Belle Epoque, Klimt is chenshed for his rich use of ornament and his paintings of fin de siecle Viennese high society, which bring to life the decadence of the era through vibrant colours and patterns. Yet there can be no doubt about Klimt's greatness as a draughtsman. Remarkable above all is the intensely sensual mood that he establishes in his limpid, fluid drawings and watercolours; the line with which his subjects are described explores and caresses as though the drawing itself was an act of seduction. Here, Rainer Metzger brings together hundreds of Klimt's works on paper in a way that enriches our knowledge of the artist and enhances the visual impact of his oeuvre. Many revolve around Klimt's taboo-breaking main themes - the naked woman, erotica and homoerotica - while others provide allegorical and historical insights. Between these...

Various types of architecture, the author explains, were termed art deco, and their antecedent were mixed and often surprising: arts and crafts, fin-de-siecle Vienna, Cubism, Expressionism and the Bauhaus. Patricia Bayer shows that art deco masterpieces can be seen and admired worldwide: from the skyscrapers of New York City to imperial dwellings n Tokyo; from Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Battersea Power Station to movie theatres and diners across America.

"Lewis Carroll: Photofile"

1291.00 руб

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pen name of Lewis Carroll, was an enigma: both a disciple of logic and a master of nonsense. Most famous for his imaginative masterpieces Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, he was also a keen and talented photographer. His fascination with this pioneering new medium led him to take intensely atmospheric portraits of family members and friends, and to create a series of haunting, unforgettable – and, to modern eyes, controversial – images that record the beauty, grace and innocence of Victorian childhood.
