Описание: Antoni Gaudi is now recognized as one of the masters of modern architecture, with his organic, vinelike forms, sensuous wooden interiors, and brilliantly coloured mosaics expressing a synthesis of international modernism and local Catalan artistic traditions. A builder by instinct and practice, Gaudi's artistic sensibilities were among the most imaginative and baroque of any modern architect. His work is instantly recognizable, in particular his last, uncompleted work, the strange and massive cathedral of the Sagrada Familia, with its sandcastle-like dripping towers. His iconic Casa Batllo (1907), an apartment building resembling a pile of gracefully draped stones hugging a corner of the Paseo de Gracia, has become a symbol of Barcelona. His Guell Park (1915), built originally for an important patron and Catalan industrialist for whom the architect built several other works, has recently been restored and is open to the public. Despite his current renown, critical recognition of his talent and significance came late, as the architecture establishment had difficulty fitting him into the canon of the Modern Movement. Gaudi's was a truly unique oeuvre, and this account of his work examines his work in the context of his life and times. He came of age during a time of rising Catalan nationalism and the flowering of a uniquely Catalan culture that mixed art nouveau with Mediterranean traditions; Barcelona at the turn of the century rivalled Paris as a centre of art, music, literature, and avant-garde publishing. Gaudi absorbed this culture and was a committed nationalist as a young man, but in later life he turned to Catholicism and became deeply religious and ascetic. His eclectic practice mixed forms from the past in a complex experimentation with space, materials, and decoration: this kind of artistic freedom was made possible only by unusual social conditions including Barcelona's economic prosperity at the turn of the century and the existence of highly skilled artisans in Catalonia. This volume analyzes Gaudi's work systematically and in detail, from the Guell Palace to the Guell Park, through to the Sagrada Familia.

Описание: This text reconstructs a building that no longer exists, in order to rediscover a lost world of beauty and sensation and gain a new insight into the work of Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. That building is the SAS House, a luxury hotel and airline terminal completed in Copenhagen in 1960. Designed for the Scandinavian Airlines System at the dawn of the jet age, the SAS House was Jacobsen's masterpiece, a cumulative work that condensed the architectural strategies and formal devices of a lifetime into a single example of total design. The SAS House has been reduced to a shadow of its origal condition. While the building is still used as a hotel and ticketing office, the distinctive interiors and fixtures that were an integral part of Jacobsen's masterwork have been discarded or altered beyond recognition. However, on the sixth floor of the hotel tower, a single guest room remains in its original condition, with the built-in woodwork, furniture, custom fabrics and surfaces that Jacobsen created for the 275 rooms of the SAS Royal Hotel. Room 606 is a microcosm of the larger building, and, examined in detail, provides the key to understanding the SAS House and, by extension, the underlying themes of Jacobsen's entire career. This book presents a very distinct way of looking at an architect's work, using the time capsule room 606 as a lens through which to examine Jacobsen's entire career. This is reflected in the structure of the book. The chapters are organized thematically, and each is articulated into three sections, which examine each theme as it applies to room 606, the SAS House, and Jacobsen's entire work. This structure is emphasized by the design as well as the visual material, which are also articulated in the same tripartite way. This structure and insight into the Danish architect's work is brought alive by a wealth of visual material, including a stunning collection of black-and-white images taken shortly after the completion of the SAS House by renowned architectural photographer Aage Struwing, who collaborated with Jacobsen for more than two decades; a portfolio of specially commissioned colour photographs by Paul Warchol that underline the contemporaneity of room 606; as well as original sketches and architectural drawings, many of which have never been published.

Описание: "Art and Photography" surveys a rich and important history, from the 1960s to the 21st century. Arranged thematically, it presents works by the most significant international artists who have explored and extended the boundaries of photography. This influential body of work by over 160 artists over four decades is contextualised in t "Documents" section by original artist's statements and interviews, as well as lucid reflections on photography by major thinkers of our era such as Roland Barthes and Jean Baudrillard. Today photography is art's pre-eminent medium. Photography pervades our visual culture. It has become what painting was in previous centuries: a universal language. Today's photographers are internationally admired as "the painters of modern life". Yet it took the whole of the 20th century for photography to reach this status. On its invention, the photograph was derided as a purely mechanical, "artless" medium which could never be considered among the fine arts. As the 20th century unfolded, Modernist movements experimented with the photograph and expanded its limits, yet still the art establishment held out. Only recently have the majority of art museums begun acquiring works of photography. In 1976, when the Museum of Modern Art, New York - one of the first institutions to collect photographs - staged a retrospective of the American colour photographer William Eggleston, this was a groundbreaking event: it was the first time colour photography had been exhibited, as art, in a major museum. This moment in the 1970s marked a dramatic sea change, but the tides had begun to turn in the early 1960s, when artists such as Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha and Gerhard Richter used the everyday, mass-produced quality of the snapshot as a basis for their work. From this early adoption of photography for its "artless" qualities, artists have explored photography extensively ever since, ranging from Richard Prince and Cindy Sherman's reflections on the visual messages of film and advertising, to the richly layered, 'painterly' genres of portraiture, landscape and still life in the work of Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Roni Horn, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jeff Wall and others who have brought photography full circle, to the roles that painting fulfilled in past centuries.

Описание: This comprehsive monograph documents the work of Maurizio Cattelan, the best-known Italian artist to have emerged internationally in the 1990s. His work has featured in three editions of the Venice Biennale (1993; 1997; 1999) and in major venues worldwide, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York (1998); and the Tate Gallery, London (1999). Cattelan creates sculptures that mock the art system and even the artist himself, with considerable wit and audacity. Poking fun at art history (with, for example, a giant, Disneyland-type figure of Pablo Picasso greeting visitors at New York's Museum of Modern Art), monumentality (with a tomb-like marble epitaph listing all the football matches lost by the England team, exhibited in a prominent London gallery), his native Italy (in a major exhibition celebrating new Italian art, Cattelan created a rug forming a map of his country - inevitably trampled and soiled beneath museum visitors' feet), and often makes fun of himself and his own inability to be a responsible, "serious" artist. Part jester, part accuser of the contemporary art world, part thief, Cattelan also conveys a lonely desperation behind the humour and sarcasm in his unconventional works.

Описание: The origins of European architecture lie in Greece and Asia Minor, where architecture achieved a remarkable level of sophisticatioy the sixth century BC. It blossomed and developed for over 500 years, spreading Greek influence to many parts of the Mediterranean world, especially Rome. This illustrated study begins with Mycenean architecture (c 1500-1100 BC), the earliest known Greek style. The author describes the Cretan palaces and those of Mycenae, Tiryns and Pylos on the mainland and also examines the links with Minoan Crete in the latter half of the 2nd millenium BC. The author then considers the main period of design in two separate sections devoted to classical and Hellenistic architecture, considering buildings in their political, social and religious context. Secular buildings such as theatres, stadia, forts and bouleuteria are given close attention in the way they helped the Greek city emerge as the dominant political entity. Martin also discusses religious buildings ranging the archaic temples at Corinth to the fifth century buildings on the Acropolis at Athens and the Hellenistic temples at Segesta and Didyma. The text is complemented with a number of plans, elevations, reconstructions and photographs. Roland Martyn has taken part in excavations on Thasos and Delos and was head of the Faculty of Archaeology at Dijon and later Director at the Ecole Practique des Hautes-Etudes at the Sorbonne in Paris.

Описание: Known primarily for one of the most widely used architectural treatises of the early modeperiod, Sebastiano Serlio was also an architect of some renown in his own day. This book explores his works and career. Examining his formation in Italy, first in Bologna and then in Rome, Sabina Frommel focuses principally on Serlio's career in France, where through works such as the residence of Ippolito D'Este in Fontainbleau and the Castle of Ancy-le-Franc, he had a profound impact on French architecture. She traces his development from the classicizing manner of his early career to his later works, where he participates in the capricious tastes that were common in both Italy and France during the mid-sixteenth century.
