Автор: Iljine Nicolas Название: Selling Russia`s Treasures: The Soviet Trade in Nationalized Art, 1917?1938 ISBN: 0789211548 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780789211545 Издательство: Abbeville Press Рейтинг: Цена: 34800 T Наличие на складе: Ожидается поступление. Описание: Selling Russia’s Treasures documents one of the great cultural dramas of the twentieth century: the sale, by a cash-hungry Soviet government, of the artistic treasures accumulated by the Russian royal family, aristocracy, and church over the centuries and nationalized after the October 1917 revolution. An astonishing variety of objects, from icons and illuminated manuscripts to Faberge eggs and Old Master paintings, entered the collections of wealthy westerners like Andrew Mellon; in fact, the canvases he purchased from the Hermitage now form the core of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
Written by the leading experts in the field and long regarded as the definitive treatment of its subject, the original Russian edition of Selling Russia’s Treasures is sought after by scholars and laymen alike. Now, for the first time, this important book is made available in English, in a revised and expanded edition that includes new material on the secret files of the Hermitage, the sale of religious art, and the loss of twentieth-century French paintings from the Museum of New Western Art.
Numerous color plates reunite long-dispersed masterworks, if only on the page, and rare photographs and archival documents help bring the buried history of the “Stalin sales” to light. Several appendices—including a checklist of pieces sold from Russia’s crown jewels, a chronology, and biographies of key figures—add to the value of this volume, which not only reveals an important episode of cultural history, but is also relevant to contemporary debates about museum deaccessioning and the repatriation of cultural objects.

I was fortunate to be able to look at some of the clothes in the Heather Firbank collection when I was researching for the first series of Downton Abbey - these were fine examples and particularly relevant.' Susannah Buxton, EMMY award-winning costume designer for Downton Abbey (Series 1 & 2) Over 80 years ago, Heather Firbank packed away her extensive collection of fine clothes, bought from London's very best dressmakers and tailors. These treasures lay undiscovered for the next 30 years, until after her death, they were given to the V&A, laying the foundations for the Museum's world-famous collection. Firbank was an enthusiastic shopper and bought her clothes from the world's leading couture houses, including Lucile, Redfern and Mascotte, as well as private dressmakers and department stores. Her collection forms an invaluable record of fashionable Edwardian taste over a period of some 15 years. Beautifully illustrated with new photography of finely crafted evening gowns, tailored suits and glamorous hats, the book also features contemporary photographs and pages from Heather's own albums of fashion cuttings. It vividly maps out the London couture scene of Edwardian Britain, and charts changes in fashion through the tumultuous first decades of the twentieth century. Through the story of Heather's own life, both joyous and troubled, this book celebrates the central role of clothing in creating a single woman's identity.

Описание: London is the royal capital of the world. Nowhere else is steeped in such regal riches. Royalty can be read about in history books, watched in colourful ceremonies and wondered at in lively gossip columns. But most of all, the royal city can be seen and understood in its wonderful, diverse architecture. Using his own unique method of turning photographs into works of art, the highly creative architectural photographer John Cleave continues Editions Didier Millets innovative Sketchbook series by focusing on the citys royal buildings. Here, dating back many centuries, are the glorious palaces of kings and queens, their places of worship and repose, the parks they laid out and the institutions they patronised. Whether in public spaces or in private corners, royalty has stamped its mark right across the city. This isnt just the London of tourists. It is the place Londoners know and love, too, and John Cleaves beautiful pictures evoke Royal Londons finest details, its quiet confidence and its enduring majesty.

Автор: Ridgers, Derek Название: 78/87 London Youth ISBN: 8862083599 ISBN-13(EAN): 9788862083591 Издательство: Thames & Hudson Рейтинг: Цена: 18480 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: Taken in the streets, clubs, basements and bars of London between 1978 and 1987, this new book brings together an incredible series of images from the British photographer Derek Ridgers. People dressing up and going out have always been central to Derek's work from the first days of punk through to the fetish and fringe scenes of present day. Since first picking up a camera in 1971, Ridgers has felt compelled to record the characters that made up the social scenes around him and early on his work attracted both the attention of cultural institutions, such as London's ICA and music and style publications, such as the NME and The Face. These photographs captured across the span of ten years bridge the extremities of youth-culture; from punk through to the birth of acid house. The pictures serve not only as a fascinating document of UK style and culture but as a testament to the spirit of youth, lauding the subjects and their individuality. This book offers us the chance to see the changing faces of fashion, music and culture through individuals and influential social scenes in a time of DIY attitudes.
