In the 4th century C.E., the Roman Imperial government, capitalizing on the site's earlier significance, converted the temple into a military camp and constructed a lavishly painted cult chamber dedicated to the four emperors of the Tetrarchy. These frescoes provide fascinating insight into the political landscape of the late Roman Empire and, as the only surviving wall paintings from the tetrarchic period, into the history of Roman art. The culmination of a groundbreaking conservation project, this volume brings together scholars across disciplines for a comprehensive look at the frescoes and their architectural, archaeological, and historical contexts. More than 150 stunning illustrations present the paintings for the first time in their newly conserved state, along with a selection of 19th-century documentary watercolors. This remarkable publication illustrates how physical context, iconography, and style were used to convey ideology throughout Rome's provinces.
Автор: Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii Название: Nostalgia: The Russian Empire of Czar Nicholas II ISBN: 3899554396 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783899554397 Издательство: Gestalten Цена: 32280 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: In 1909, Russian chemist and photographer Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863–1944) set out on a journey to capture all of Russia in color on behalf of Czar Nicholas II. One of the early pioneers of color photography, Prokudin-Gorskii systematically documented the vast empire with the unprecedented technique he had developed—a method in which he used color-sensitive glass plates—decades before the widespread availability of color film. His color images were not only meant to document the diverse citizens, ethnicities, settlements, folklore, and landscapes of a vast empire, but to create nothing less than a common identity for its populace.
Prokudin-Gorskii’s know-how and his skilled eye make his images especially vibrant and timeless. A century later, they have not lost any of their original beauty and intensity.
Over 250 of these early masterpieces of color photography, which have recently been laboriously restored by the Library of Congress, will be also showcased in the exhibition “Nostalgia”, and shown in Europe for the first time at Gestalten Space. The exhibition is part of the official selection of Berlin displays during the 5th European Month of Photography Festival from October 19th to November 25th, 2012.

Описание: This book contains 38 carefully selected treasures from a unique collection devoted to our complex and contradictory attitudes towards death. Assembled by Richard Harris, a former antique print dealer from Chicago, the collection (now approaching 2000 objects) is spectacularly diverse, and includes art, historical artefacts, scientific specimens and ephemera from across the world. Rare artists prints are displayed together with anatomical illustrations and sentimental postcards, images of human remains join Renaissance vanitas paintings, and a range of contemporary artworks show that death remains a source of powerful inspiration for many artists working today. A modern-day cabinet of curiosities, this book functions partly as the visual autobiography of one remarkable individual, at the same time providing us with an opportunity to examine our own feelings about mortality. Sometimes disturbing, occasionally macabre and often moving, these images provide a singular insight into the history of our eternal desire to make peace with death.

Описание: This monograph dedicated to the most spectacular example of Parisian First Empire interior architecture retraces the history of the building and the lives of its residents.

At the fall of the Napoleonic Empire, it was sold to the King of Prussia and became an embassy during the nineteenth century. With its unique Consulate and Empire decor, the palace is an invaluable specimen of Parisian interior architecture.The result of more than ten years of research and restoration work, this book recounts three centuries of European political history through the lives of the Hotel s successive owners."
Название: Life & Death in Tattoo Flash ISBN: 0764342053 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780764342059 Издательство: Schiffer Рейтинг: Цена: 19830 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Created over the last three winters at the tattoo shop California Tattoo in Savannah, Georgia, this tattoo art story represents a period during the off-season that artist Christopher Norrell uses to hone skills and learn new ways of seeing. In this introspective mood, Norrell has engaged in an ongoing challenge with his craft in which he hates his own work enough to do it over and over until it is right. Thematically this is manifested in a struggle between life and death, good and evil, using images of the Angel of Death, predatory animals, skulls, phoenixes, birds, and flowers. Progress in Norrells struggle is evident throughout the more than 230 pieces of tattoo flash art and looking closely there are distinct changes in style, color theory, and composition, showing things he learned and things he abandoned. All of this exploration is in the name of Norrells ultimate goal to create tattoos that are sturdy, long lasting, easy to understand, and visually appealing. This is an ideal collection of flash for tattooers, the tattooed, and artists.
