Rococo

Rococo Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Rococo by Victoria Charles,Klaus Carl Book Summary:

Deriving from the French word rocaille, in reference to the curved forms of shellfish, and the Italian barocco, the French created the term ‘Rococo’. Appearing at the beginning of the 18th century, it rapidly spread to the whole of Europe. Extravagant and light, Rococo responded perfectly to the spontaneity of the aristocracy of the time. In many aspects, this art was linked to its predecessor, Baroque, and it is thus also referred to as late Baroque style. While artists such as Tiepolo, Boucher and Reynolds carried the style to its apogee, the movement was often condemned for its superficiality. In the second half of the 18th century, Rococo began its decline. At the end of the century, facing the advent of Neoclassicism, it was plunged into obscurity. It had to wait nearly a century before art historians could restore it to the radiance of its golden age, which is rediscovered in this work by Klaus H. Carl and Victoria Charles.

Baroque & Rococo

Rococo Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Baroque & Rococo by Marco Bussagli,Mattia Reiche Book Summary:

An era of exuberant creativity is the focus of this magnificently illustrated, competitively priced new art book. Baroque art was characterized by unbridled emotion, intricate decorative flourishes, and a dramatic use of light, reaching its summit in works such as Bernini’s magnificent altarpiece, The Ecstasy of St. Theresa. Over time, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate and sensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomized by the opulent paintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced exploration of both movements guides the reader through more than a century of art history--exploring the lives and works of sculptors such as Bernini, painters such as Watteau, Boucher, Rubens, and Hogarth, and architects such as Christopher Wren.

History of Art

Rococo Pdf [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.

Rococo and Other Worlds

Rococo Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Rococo and Other Worlds by Afzal Ahmed Syed Book Summary:

Afzal Ahmed Syed holds a unique place among contemporary poets of the Urdu language, as an acknowledged master of both the classical and modern Urdu poetic forms. The poems in Rococo and Other Worlds explore the mythology and historical realities of South Asia and the Middle East; their bold imagery creates narratives of voluptuous perfection, which remain inseparable from the political realities that Syed witnessed as a young observer of the violent separation of East Pakistan and emergence of Bangladesh in 1971 and of the Lebanese civil war in 1976. Musharraf Ali Farooqi’s sensitive translations bring this extraordinary work to English readers for the first time.

Baroque and Rococo

Rococo Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Baroque and Rococo by Vernon Hyde Minor Book Summary:

The period 1600-1760 in Europe was remarkable for its artistic diversity, encompassing the dramatic exuberance of Bernini, the psychological acuity of Rembrandt, and the sparkling brio of Boucher. Yet the shared principles, concerns, and attitudes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries created a kind of internationalism that justifies a survey of the era as a whole. Traditional surveys of the period divide their material strictly by countries and chronological periods. By contrast, Vernon Minor looks at the prevalent themes of Baroque and Rococo artistic production through the lens of the dominant institutions of the day. The ideologies of the Counter-Reformation Church, the court of Louis Quatorze, and the mercantile economy of the Calvinist Dutch are implicit in much of the painting, sculpture, and architecture of the epoch. In a series of connecting essays, readers will encounter perceptive discussions of ecclesiastical altarpieces, ceiling paintings, and papal tombs; church and palace architecture; mythological and history paintings; landscapes and city views; portraits, still lifes, and genre scenes; Baroque town planning and Rococo domestic settings -- all seen in the context of contemporary artists, academies, patrons, critics, and beholders. While eschewing outmoded approaches to the subject, the author supplies readings of many of the acknowledged masterpieces of the day emanating from England, France, the Low Countries, Italy, and Spain.

An Insular Rococo

Rococo Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

An Insular Rococo by Tim Mowl,Brian Earnshaw Book Summary:

"Between 1710 and 1770, the Rococo style should, in the normal course of events, have been Britain's prevailing decorative style, at once inventive, ornate, elegant and playful. This is the first book to describe and explain its oddly frustrated course in England and, in vivid contrast, its brilliant flourishing in Ireland. Architectural historians have tried to make the best of the Palladian Revival that occurred after 1714. But in fact Palladianism was a cultural disaster, a retrograde step imposed upon a chauvinistic ruling class which left England dependent for the internal decor of its aristocratic houses on memories of ruined Roman baths or the improvisations of itinerant Italo-Swiss stucco workers. England's eventual response to the decorative failings of Palladianism was the 'Gothick'. Ireland, more sophisticated in the technical education of its craftsmen and artists, not only devised its own subtle 'insular' Rococo, but exported this mode successfully to the West of England in a gesture of colonialism--Book jacket.

Les termes qui désignent les styles sont très souvent, dans leur acception primitive, des mots péjoratifs : gothique, maniérisme, baroque, pompier ont été ou sont encore employés avec une valeur polémique.
