Learning to Look at Sculpture

Learning To Look At Paintings [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Learning to Look at Sculpture by Mary Acton Book Summary:

Learning to Look at Sculpture is an accessible guide to the study and understanding of three dimensional art. Sculpture is all around us: in public parks, squares, gardens and railway stations, as part of the architecture of buildings, or when used in commemoration and memorials and can even be considered in relation to furniture and industrial design. This book encourages you to consider the multiple forms and everyday guises sculpture can take. Exploring Western sculpture with examples from antiquity through to the present day, Mary Acton shows you how to analyse and fully experience sculpture, asking you to consider questions such as What do we mean by the sculptural vision? What qualities do we look for when viewing sculpture? How important is the influence of the Classical Tradition and what changed in the modern period? What difference does the scale and context make to our visual understanding? With chapters on different types of sculpture, such as free-standing figures, group sculpture and reliefs, and addressing how the experience of sculpture is fundamentally different due to the nature of its relationship to the space of its setting, the book also explores related themes, such as sculpture¿s connection with architecture, drawing and design, and what difference changing techniques can make to the tactile and physical experience of sculpture. Richly illustrated with over 200 images, including multiple points of view of three dimensional works, examples include the Riace bronzes, Michelangelo¿s David, Canova¿s The Three Graces, medieval relief sculptures, war memorials and works from modern and contemporary artists, such as Henry Moore, Cornelia Parker and Richard Serra, and three-dimensional designers like Thomas Heatherwick. A glossary of critical and technical terms, further reading and questions for students, make this the ideal companion for all those studying, or simply interested in, sculpture.

Why Art Photography?

Learning To Look At Paintings [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Why Art Photography? by Lucy Soutter Book Summary:

Contemporary art photography is paradoxical. Anyone can look at it and form an opinion about what they see, yet it represents critical positions that only a small minority of well-informed viewers can usually access. Why Art Photography? provides a lively, accessible introduction to the ideas behind today's striking photographic images. Exploring key issues such as ambiguity, objectivity, staging, authenticity, the digital and photography's expanded field, the chapters offer fresh perspectives on existing debates. While the main focus is on the present, the book traces concepts and visual styles to their origins, drawing on carefully selected examples from recognized international photographers. Images, theories and histories are described in a clear, concise manner and key terms are defined along the way. This book is ideal for anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of photography as an art form.

Vermeer et les maîtres de la peinture de genre

Learning To Look At Paintings [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Vermeer et les maîtres de la peinture de genre by Piet Bakker,Blaise Ducos,Adriaan E. Waiboer,Arthur K. Wheelock,Musée du Louvre (Paris) Book Summary:

"Vermeer, ou "le sphinx de Delft". Cette exposition, forgée au XIXe siècle, a figé la personnalité de Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) dans une pose énigmatique et solitaire. Cet ouvrage original permet au contraire de découvrir que ce génie universel s'inscrivait dans un riche réseau d'influences, très loin du splendide isolement avec lequel il fut longtemps associé. La scène de genre élégante hollandaise connaît son âge d'or vers 1650-1680. Cette peinture, mise en scène luxueuse d'activité qui n'ont de quotidiennes que le nom, permet à la République des Provinces-Unies de s'affirmer face aux monarchies. Vermeer en est l'un des maîtres, aux côtés de Gerard Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Frans von Mieris, Gabriel Metsu, Pieter de Hooch... Ces peintres, actifs à Leyde, Deventer, Amsterdam ou Delft, ont eu connaissance du travail des uns et des autres. Leurs rapports alternent hommages, citation détournées, métamorphoses. Vues de la sorte, les sublimations de Vermeer prennent un sens nouveau: celui de ses rejets et des admirations." [Source : 4e de couv.]

Un jardin à Venise

Learning To Look At Paintings [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Un jardin à Venise by Frederic Eden Book Summary:

"[...] C'est dans un état pitoyable que je parvins sur la lagune, il y a plus d'une vingtaine d'années. Le balancement de la gondole m'épargnait les douleurs et les tensions que m'infligeaient mon fauteuil roulant et la voiture. Je crois que c'est la raison pour laquelle je pris racine à Venise. Ni bruit, ni mouches, ni poussière. Un air aussi agréable que la brise. Un soleil qui me réchauffait sans me brûler, une lumière douce et diffuse, qui ne m'éblouissait pas et me permettait de lire sans fatigue, un climat propice à l'oisiveté et qui n'exige rien de vous. Nous aurions donc bien pu, nous aussi, nous laisser aller à l'indolence..."

Le Peintre de la vie moderne

Learning To Look At Paintings [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Le Peintre de la vie moderne by Charles Baudelaire Book Summary:

Les enjeux du goût sont toujours furieusement politiques et métaphysiques. Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867), l’amateur et critique d’art qui arpente les Salons, en a une conscience extrême. Contre l’académisme pompier, il lance son mort d’ordre : retour au présent, mais un présent revêtu de la Beauté éternelle. Dans son essai publié en feuilleton en 1863 qui passe pour l’acte de naissance de la modernité, il fait l’éloge de l’artifice, du maquillage et des parures, de la femme élégante, de la ville, du frivole et de l’horreur. Il développe une théorie du dandy. « La modernité, c’est le transitoire, le contingent, la moitié de l’art, dont l’autre moitié est l’éternel et l’immuable. »
