Описание: Antoine Watteau painted his "fetes galantes" during a period in which the art of polite conversation flourished in France. In this study, Mary Vidal shows that
conversation was central to Watteau's images of sociability, providing the framework for figural and formal relationships even in his military, mythological, theatrical and religious works.
Vidal argues that Watteau's painted conversations were not mere literal descriptions of social behaviour but repesented conversation as part of an aesthetic, linguistic and ethical
system, as an art of living.
Vidal shows that Watteau's focus on cnverstion was related to developments in the 17th- and 18th-century France: the rise and elaboration of an
art of conversation, the connection between polite discourse and the redefinition of the nobility, the flourishng of women's salons in Paris and the development of the literary genre of the
written conversation. Watteau recognised speech as the central sign system in French society and he identified the characteristics of fine conversation in his new manner of painting.
Through this analogy, he presented the artistic process itself as the main concern of the elite artist, in contrast to the scholarly, text-dependent image of the Academy.
choosing conversation as his subject, Watteau associated his art with polite society. In his conversational artmaking, Watteau set up dialogic relationships between spoken words and
images, art and society, viewer and painting. Often regarded as merely erotic and decorative, this books shows his painted conversations to be also works of substance, ideas and

Описание: Widely regarded as one of the most important American painters of the twentieth century, Alice Neel is internationally recognized for her contributions to Abstract Expressionism, especially her perceptive portraiture. Neel (1900-1984) was a portrait painter at a time when this was traditionally the role of a male artist. After ascending to prominence in the 1960s as the feminist movement gained momentum, she has remained an iconic figure in the history of American painting. A self-proclaimed 'collector of souls', Neel often painted friends and family, as well as the celebrated artists and writers of her day, such as Andy Warhol, Frank O'Hara, and Meyer Shapiro, delving into personalities and idiosyncrasies with a rare frankness. "Alice Neel: Painted Truths" brings together a collection of paintings that demonstrate Neel's range and ability, along with insightful commentary from four leading art historians. Although the book focuses on her portraits, it also covers the artist's early social realist paintings and cityscapes, tracing the evolution of Neel's style and examining themes that she revisited throughout her career.

Автор: Losty, J. P. Название: Sita Ram`s Painted Views of India ISBN: 0500518270 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780500518274 Издательство: Thames & Hudson Рейтинг: Цена: 21550 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ.

This book includes an edited version of the journal charting his passage through the India of the early nineteenth century. Though Sita Ram’s picturesque paintings were a sharp departure from the accurate ‘Company’ views of Indian monuments, they nonetheless revealed his eye for architectural detail. Taking the readers along as part of Lord Hastings's party, J. P. Losty brings alive the seventeen- month long expedition in a flotilla of 220 boats from Barrackpore past Patna, Benares, Allahabad and Cawnpore, and then overland to Lucknow, Delhi and the Punjab, through Sita Ram’s never-before-published paintings of Colonial India.
