Название: Sorolla And America ISBN: 6078310011 ISBN-13(EAN): 9786078310012 Издательство: ACC-distribution titles Рейтинг: Цена: 68680 T Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка. Описание: Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida (1863-1923) first achieved major international success with his painting Otra Margarita! (Another Marguerite!) (1892), for which he received first prize at the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago. This painting was also the first work by the Spanish artist to enter an American institution when it was donated to the Museum of Fine Arts (today the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum) at Washington University in St. Louis in 1894. Sorolla's fame in America grew; in 1909, more than 150,000 visitors attended an exhibition of Sorolla's art at The Hispanic Society of America in New York in 1909. Furthermore, the artist was invited to the White House to paint the portrait of President William Howard Taft. The landmark exhibition of 1909 was followed two years later by another major show of more than 150 of his paintings held at the Art Institute of Chicago and the St. Louis Art Museum. Sorolla and America explores the artist's relationship with early twentieth century America through the lens of those who commissioned him, those who collected his works, and those artists, such as John Singer Sargent and William Merritt Chase, with whom Sorolla closely associated. Particular attention is dedicated to the artist's association with The Hispanic Society of America and with key figures like Archer Milton Huntington and Thomas Fortune Ryan.

Автор: Alcala Luisa Elena, Brown Jonathan Название: Painting in Latin America, 1550-1820: From Conquest to Independence ISBN: 0300191014 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780300191011 Издательство: Yale University Press Рейтинг: Цена: 72190 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: Painting in Latin America, 1550--1820: From Conquest to Independence surveys the diverse styles, subjects, and iconography of painting in Latin America between the 16th and 19th centuries. While European art forms were widely disseminated, copied, and adapted throughout Latin America, colonial painting is not a derivative extension of Europe. The ongoing debate over what to call it--mestizo, hybrid, creole, indo-hispanic, tequitqui--testifies to a fundamental yet unresolved question of identity. Comparing and contrasting the Viceroyalties of New Spain, with its center in modern-day Mexico, and Peru, the authors explore the very different ways the two regions responded to the influence of the Europeans and their art. A wide range of art and artists are considered, some for the first time. Rich with new photography and primary research, this book delivers a wealth of new insight into the history of images and the history of art.
Автор: Benton Megan Название: Beauty and the Book: Fine Editions and Cultural Distinction in America ISBN: 0300207476 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780300207477 Издательство: Yale University Press Рейтинг: Цена: 30320 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: In post-World War I America-a world teeming with magazines, newspapers, radio broadcasts, and movies-many feared that the survival of traditional, serious books was in peril. This concern led to a publishing boom in fine editions-books valued primarily for their beauty, craftsmanship, extravagance, status, or scarcity. Beauty and the Book is a lively cultural history of the explosion in demand for these deluxe books during the 1920s and 1930s. Megan L. Benton argues that the clamor to own fine books reflected the anxieties and desires of those who mourned the rise of a modern mass culture. For them, such volumes not only affirmed a preindustrial ideal but also imparted social distinction and cultural superiority. Benton combines new archival research with a close examination of three hundred fine editions of the period. In theory, fine bookmakers were devoted to beauty and quality and were unwilling to compromise with machinery, popular taste, or concern for profit. But such ideal standards were nearly impossible to maintain. Paradoxically, fine publishers' ostensible indifference to commercial considerations was one of their most prized and lucrative products for sale. This book illuminates the interplay between the ideal and real nature of fine publishing as well as the complex nature of American cultural ambitions during this pivotal era.

Описание: Earlier in the 20th century, the Pennsylvania Railroad was the transportation leader in the United States, moving ten percent of the rail traffic with only four percent of the U.S. route mileage. In the northeast, the Pennsy seemed to reach everywhere. Little wonder today that when these veteran engines operate, they draw thousands trackside, from older people who knew the railroad to kids who were born years after Pennsys demise. For a few moments, they get a glimpse at what once was the Standard Railroad of the World. With this new book, you can see and read about the modern trains that still captivate onlookers and the new railroad companies, including the famous Santa Fe Railway to CSX and ALCO lines, that have served across North America in the last thirty years. Over 450 exciting color photos show engines and trains in use at breathtaking locations across the continent. The engaging, detailed text explains modern-day railroad mergers and engine markings, histories, unique characteristics, and the web of routes in the transportation system that keeps goods moving over iron trails every day. The author shares his eye-witness sightings through his photography and deep knowledge of recent American trains.

Описание: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America accompanies a landmark exhibition exploring the career of Norman Bel Geddes (1893–1958), one of the 20th century’s foremost theatrical and industrial designers. This companion volume explores Bel Geddes’s life and career in comprehensive detail through nearly 100 projects, ranging from streamlined airplanes, ships, and cars, to stage sets, appliances, and much more. Both the exhibition and the book bring together never-before-seen drawings, models, photographs, and films drawn from the Ransom Center’s Bel Geddes collection. He is perhaps best known for his Futurama display for the General Motors Highways and Horizons exhibit at the New York World’s Fair of 1939–40, which to this day remains a useful model for city planning and design. The exhibition is curated by Donald Albrecht, who contributed the book’s introduction and serves as its editor. In addition to Albrecht, who has written the introduction, twenty scholars have contributed essays. The exhibition I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America opens in September 2012 at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, and will travel to the Museum of the City of New York.
