The Egyptian Revival

The Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt As The Inspiration For Design Motifs In The West [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Egyptian Revival by James Stevens Curl Book Summary:

In this beautifully illustrated and closely argued book, a completely updated and much expanded third edition of his magisterial survey, Curl describes in lively and stimulating prose the numerous revivals of the Egyptian style from Antiquity to the present day. Drawing on a wealth of sources, his pioneering and definitive work analyzes the remarkable and persistent influence of Ancient Egyptian culture on the West. The author deftly develops his argument that the civilization of Ancient Egypt is central, rather than peripheral, to the development of much of Western architecture, art, design, and religion. Curl examines: the persistence of Egyptian motifs in design from Graeco-Roman Antiquity, through the Medieval, Baroque, and Neo-Classical periods rise of Egyptology in the nineteenth and twentieth-century manifestations of Egyptianisms prompted by the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb various aspects of Egyptianizing tendencies in the Art Deco style and afterwards. For students of art, architectural and ancient history, and those interested in western European culture generally, this book will be an inspiring and invaluable addition to the available literature.

Africanité & Africanisation de l'Occident

The Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt As The Inspiration For Design Motifs In The West [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Africanité & Africanisation de l'Occident by Sidina Wane Book Summary:

L’Afrique, berceau de l’humanité, est aussi le lieu où ont germé les pensées scientifique, artistique, philosophique, spirituelle et religieuse de l’Occident dont la Grèce aura été l’habile courroie de transmission. L’héritage de l’Occident n’est pas grec, il est foncièrement africain. De nombreuses sources - antiques, classiques, modernes et contemporaines - souvent occultées, l’attestent. Sur cet héritage, l'Occident a élaboré ses propres modes de construction des savoirs et d'appréhension de l'invisible. Aujourd’hui, le passé de l’Occident qui scelle son « africanité » resurgit dans le présent, comme par refoulement, dans diverses manifestations identifiables à un processus d’«africanisation». Dans ce livre, avec une volonté et un élan résolument vulgarisateurs, l’auteur examine l’entrelacement du passé et du présent de l’Occident, reflets de son «africanité» et de son «africanisation». Leur mise en regard révèle des codes à décrypter pour les projets d’avenir, pour se prémunir contre les écueils des dérives de l’irrationnel.

Ancient Egypt in the Modern Imagination

The Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt As The Inspiration For Design Motifs In The West [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Ancient Egypt in the Modern Imagination by Eleanor Dobson,Nichola Tonks Book Summary:

Ancient Egypt has always been a source of fascination to writers, artists and architects in the West. This book is the first study to address representations of Ancient Egypt in the modern imagination, breaking down conventional disciplinary boundaries between fields such as History, Classics, Art History, Fashion, Film, Archaeology, Egyptology, and Literature to further a nuanced understanding of ancient Egypt in cultures stretching from the eighteenth century to the present day, emphasising how some of the various meanings of ancient Egypt to modern people have traversed time and media. Divided into three themes, the chapters scrutinise different aspects of the use of ancient Egypt in a variety of media, looking in particular at the ways in which Egyptology as a discipline has influenced representations of Egypt, ancient Egypt's associations with death and mysticism, as well as connections between ancient Egypt and gendered power. The diversity of this study aims to emphasise both the multiplicity and the patterning of popular responses to ancient Egypt, as well as the longevity of this phenomenon and its relevance today.

Eighteenth-Century Thing Theory in a Global Context

The Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt As The Inspiration For Design Motifs In The West [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Eighteenth-Century Thing Theory in a Global Context by Ileana Baird,Christina Ionescu Book Summary:

Exploring Enlightenment attitudes toward things and their relation to human subjects, this collection offers a geographically wide-ranging perspective on what the eighteenth century looked like beyond British or British-colonial borders. To highlight trends, fashions, and cultural imports of truly global significance, the contributors draw their case studies from Western Europe, Russia, Africa, Latin America, and Oceania. This survey underscores the multifarious ways in which new theoretical approaches, such as thing theory or material and visual culture studies, revise our understanding of the people and objects that inhabit the phenomenological spaces of the eighteenth century. Rather than focusing on a particular geographical area, or on the global as a juxtaposition of regions with a distinctive cultural footprint, this collection draws attention to the unforeseen relational maps drawn by things in their global peregrinations, celebrating the logic of serendipity that transforms the object into some-thing else when it is placed in a new locale.

Georgian Architecture in the British Isles, 1714-1830

The Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt As The Inspiration For Design Motifs In The West [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Georgian Architecture in the British Isles, 1714-1830 by James Stevens Curl Book Summary:

First published in 1993, this is a fully revised and newly illustrated guide to the architecture of the British Isles during the reigns of the first four Georges. The book shows the remarkable diversity of the architecture created during the era, from the grander Classicism influenced by the architecture of Italy, notably that of Andrea Palladio (1508-80), to the exotic tastes for Chinoiserie, Rococo, Gothick, and even the Indian styles. All of these aspects are discussed, setting the scene in respect of notions concerned with the aesthetic categories of the Beautiful, the Picturesque, and the Sublime and drawing attention especially to the importance of the Picturesque during the Georgian period.

Victorian Architecture

Victorian Architecture by James Stevens Curl Book Summary:

By means of a collection of illustrations and authorative text, Professor James Stevens Curl brings to life the great architectural achievements of the Victorians.They responded to unprecedented challenges and opportunities and met these with confident, colourful, rumbustiously eclectic architecture. Professor Curl deals with the palette of styles available to the Victorians; entirely new building types; novel materials; ecclesiastical buildings that, arguably, were superior to mediaeval exemplars; the responses of a vital society to contemporary challenges; and how they went further than anyone since Roman times to solve the problems of urban hygiene. All this is set firmly within the context of the intellectual complexities of the age.

Spas, Wells, & Pleasure Gardens of London by James Stevens Curl Book Summary:

London was once blessed with spas set in gardens, where beneficial waters could be consumed and enjoyed in agreeable surroundings, sometimes with music, food and alcohol. They were, in effect, the pleasure resorts of the 18th century. With the aid of many images the author - one of England's most distinguished architectural historians - provides a racy, informative, humorous and well-researched social history of these fascinating, if ephemeral, little-known features of London life, some of which survived until early Victorian times.

Northern Lights

The Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt As The Inspiration For Design Motifs In The West [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Northern Lights by A. D. Morrison-Low Book Summary:

The Scottish coastline remains one of the most dangerous in the world. The story of how her margins were lit is one of determined engineering endeavour and heroic struggle against the elements. The Northern Lighthouse Board, formed in 1786, continues to assist mariners and live up to its motto 'In Salutem Omnium', for the safety of all. The story begins in Egypt, with one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, for all lighthouse builders have learned from their predecessors. Using the collections of National Museums Scotland, this account shows how the world's first rock lighthouse in the dangerous English Channel at the Eddystone Reef off Plymouth was first destroyed by storm and then by fire, before being made in stone, and outlasting the rock itself. The lessons learned there were absorbed by the young Robert Stevenson, whose apprenticeship with his stepfather Thomas Smith allowed him to experience at first hand the darkness and the dangers of Scotland's perilous coastline. Stevenson's building of a lighthouse on the dangerous Inchcape Reef, or Bell Rock, 11 miles from Arbroath, would prove to be his most important engineering success. Robert Stevenson's family was associated with lighthouse construction for a further three generations, not only in Scotland, but in Newfoundland, Burma, Japan and New Zealand. This account, drawn from their writings and illustrated by the unmatched collection of light-house artefacts; often made for exhibition at the nineteenth century international trade fairs in London and Paris, now held by National Museums Scotland, is brought up to date with how the Northern Lighthouse Board operates today.

Imhotep Today

The Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt As The Inspiration For Design Motifs In The West [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Imhotep Today by Humbert,,Price, Book Summary:

The discipline of Egyptology has been criticised for being too insular,with little awareness of the development of archaeologies elsewhere. It has remained theoretically underdeveloped. For example the role of Ancient Egypt within Africa has rarely been considered jointly by Egyptologists and Africanists. Egypt's own view of itself has been neglected; views of it in the ancient past, in more recent times and today have remained underexposed. Encounters with Ancient Egypt is a series of eight books which addresses these issues. The books interrelate, inform and illuminate one another and will appeal to a wide market including academics, students and the general public interested in Archaeology, Egyptology, Anthropology, Architecture, Design and History. This book presents and analyses the results of the use and adaptation of ancient Egyptian architecture in modern times. It traces the use of ancient Egyptian motifs and constructions across the world, from Australia, the Americas and Southern Africa to Western Europe. It also inquires into the cultural, economic and social contexts of this practice. Imhotep Today is exceptional not only in its global coverage, but in its analyses of thorny questions such as: what was it about Ancient Egypt that inspired such Egyptianizing monuments, and was it just one idea, or several different ones which formed the basis of such activities? The book also asks why only certain images, such as obelisks and sphinxes, were incorporated within the movement. The contributors explore how these 'monuments' fitted into the local architecture of the time and, in this context, they investigate whether 'Egyptianizing architecture' is an ongoing movement and, if so, how it differs from earlier, similar activities.
