Dictionary Of Subjects And Symbols In Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Dictionary of Subjects and Symbols in Art by James Hall Book Summary:

The understanding and enjoyment of a work of art depends as much on the story it depicts as on the artist's execution of it. But what were once biblical or classical commonplaces are not so readily recognizable today. This book relates in a succinct and readable way the themes, sacred and secular, on which the repertoire of Western art is based. Combined here in a single volume are religious, classical, and historical themes, figures of moral allegory, and characters from romantic poetry that appeared throughout paintings and sculpture in Western art before and after the Renaissance. More than just a dictionary, this text places these subjects in their narrative, historical, or mythological context and uses extensive cross-referencing to enhance and clarify the meanings of these themes for the reader. The definitive work by which others are compared, this volume has become an indispensable handbook for students and general appreciators alike. This wholly redesigned second edition includes a new insert of images chosen by the author, as well as a new preface and index to highlight the ideas, beliefs, and social and religious customs that form the background of much of this subject matter.

History of Art

Dictionary Of Subjects And Symbols In Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

History of Art by Horst Woldemar Janson,Anthony F. Janson Book Summary:

For forty years, this widely acclaimed classic has remained unsurpassed as an introduction to art in the Western world, boasting the matchless credibility of the Janson name. This newest update features a more contemporary, more colorful design and vast array of extraordinarily produced illustrations that have become the Janson hallmark. A narrative voice makes this book a truly enjoyable read, and carefully reviewed and revised updates to this edition offer the utmost clarity in contributions based on recent scholarship. Extensive captions for the book’s incredible art program offer profound insight through the eyes of twentieth-century art historians speaking about specific pieces of art featured throughout. Significantly changed in this edition is the chapter on “The Late Renaissance,” in which Janson offers a new perspective on the subject, tracing in detail the religious art tied to the Catholic Reform movement, whose early history is little known to many readers of art history. Janson has also rearranged early Renaissance art according to genres instead of time sequence, and he has followed the reinterpretation of Etruscan art begun in recent years by German and English art historians. With a truly humanist approach, this book gives written and visual meaning to the captivating story of what artists have tried to express—and why—for more than 30,000 years.

Le livre des symboles

Dictionary Of Subjects And Symbols In Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Le livre des symboles by Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism Book Summary:

Le Livre des symboles allie essais originaux et incisifs sur des symboles particuliers à des images représentatives provenant de tous les horizons et de toutes les époques de l'histoire. Les textes très accessibles s'associent de façon originale à près de 800 magnifiques images en couleurs pour transmettre les dimensions voilées du sens. Chacun de ces quelque 350 essais examine les origines psychiques d'un symbole donné et la manière dont il évoque les processus et dynamiques psychiques. Les racines étymologiques, les jeux d'opposition, le paradoxe et l'ombre, les différentes manières dont les diverses cultures ont fait naître une image symbolique: tous ces facteurs sont pris en compte. Rédigés par des auteurs spécialisés dans les domaines de la psychologie, de la religion, de l'art, de la littérature et de la mythologie comparée, les essais entrent en résonance de manière à refléter les correspondances inattendues de la psyché. Il n'existe pas de définitions immuables, qui auraient tendance à écraser les symboles; un symbole encore essentiel demeure partiellement inconnu, attire notre attention et s'offre sous de nouvelles manifestations et de nouveaux sens au cours du temps. Plutôt que de proposer de simples catégories, Le Livre des symboles met en lumière la manière dont on passe de l'expérience visuelle d'une image symbolique dans l'art, la religion, la vie ou les rêves, à l'expérience directe de ses résonances personnelles et psychologiques.Le Livre des symboles établit de nouvelles références pour l'exploration consciencieuse des symboles et de leurs significations et intéressera une grande diversité de lecteurs: artistes, designers, rêveurs et interpréteurs de rêves, psychothérapeutes, autodidactes, amateurs de jeux vidéos, lecteurs de BD, chercheurs en religion et en spiritualité, écrivains, étudiants et tous ceux qui s'intéressent au pouvoir des images archétypales.

A Dictionary of Symbols

Dictionary Of Subjects And Symbols In Art [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Dictionary of Symbols by Juan Eduardo Cirlot Book Summary:

A classic encyclopedia of symbols by Catalan polymath Joan Cirlot that illuminates the symbolic underpinnings of myth, modern psychology, literature, and art. Juan Eduardo Cirlot’s A Dictionary of Symbols is a feat of scholarship, an act of the imagination, and a tool for contemplation, as well as a work of literature, a reference book that is as indispensable as it is brilliant and learned. Cirlot was a composer, a poet, an art critic, and a champion of modern art whose interest in surrealism helped to bring him to the study of symbolism. Carl Jung, Mircea Eliade, René Guénon, Erich Fromm, and Gaston Bachelard also helped to shape his thinking in a book that explores the space between the world at large and the world within, where, as Cirlot sees it, nothing is meaningless, everything is significant, and everything is in some way related to something else. Running from “abandonment” to “zone” by way of “flute” and “whip,” spanning the cultures of the world, and including a wealth of visual images to further bring the reality of the symbol home, A Dictionary of Symbols, here published for the first time in English in its original, significantly enlarged form, is a luminous and illuminating investigation of the works of eternity in time.
