The Story of Art

The Story Of Art 16th Edition [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Story of Art by Ernst Hans Gombrich Book Summary:

"The Story of Art is one of the most famous and popular books on art ever published. For 45 years it has remained unrivalled as an introduction to the whole subject, from the earliest cave paintings to the experimental art of today. Readers of all ages and backgrounds throughout the world have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating directly his own deep love of the works of art he describes." "The Story of Art owes its lasting popularity to the directness and simplicity of the writing, and also the author's skill in presenting a clear narrative. He describes his aim as 'to bring some intelligible order into the wealth of names, periods and styles which crowd the pages of more ambitious works', and using his insight into the psychology of the visual arts, he makes us see the history of art as 'a continuous weaving and changing of traditions in which each work refers to the past and points to the future, a living chain that still links our own time with the Pyramid age'. In its new format, the 16th edition of this classic work is set to continue its triumphant progress for future generations and to remain the first choice for all newcomers to art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Story Of Art 16th Edition [Pdf/ePub] eBook

L'art subtil de s'en foutre by Mark Manson Book Summary:

Un livre de développement personnel pour ceux qui détestent le développement personnel Le discours ambiant nous pousse sans cesse à nous améliorer. Sois plus heureux. Sois en meilleure santé. Sois plus intelligent, plus rapide, plus riche, plus sexy, plus productif. Mais il faut en finir avec la pensée positive, nous dit Mark Manson. "Soyons honnêtes : parfois tout va de travers, et il faut faire avec." Depuis quelques années, à travers son blog au succès phénoménal, Mark Manson explore les aspirations délirantes qui déforment notre perception du monde. Il propose ici sa sagesse pratique, joyeusement insolente. C'est en regardant en face nos peurs, nos défauts et nos incertitudes - en arrêtant de fuir et d'éviter -, que nous pourrons trouver le courage et la confiance qui nous manquent tant. Mark Manson invite à un moment de parler vrai en mode je-te-regarde-dans-les-yeux, fait d'histoires vécues et d'humour potache. Un livre-manifeste pour construire des vies plus réjouissantes, plus ancrées.

Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology

The Story Of Art 16th Edition [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology by Amy Gansell,Ann Shafer Book Summary:

Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology invites readers to reconsider the contents and agendas of the art historical and world-culture canons by looking at one of their most historically enduring components: the art and archaeology of the ancient Near East. Ann Shafer, Amy Rebecca Gansell, and other top researchers in the field examine and critique the formation and historical transformation of the ancient Near Eastern canon of art, architecture, and material culture. Contributors flesh out the current boundaries of regional and typological sub-canons, analyze the technologies of canon production (such as museum practices and classroom pedagogies), and voice first-hand heritage perspectives. Each chapter, thereby, critically engages with the historiography behind our approach to the Near East and proposes alternative constructs. Collectively, the essays confront and critique the ancient Near Eastern canon's present configuration and re-imagine its future role in the canon of world art as a whole. This expansive collection of essays covers the Near East's many regions, eras, and types of visual and archaeological materials, offering specific and actionable proposals for its study. Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology stands as a vital benchmark and offers a collective path forward for the study and appreciation of Near Eastern cultural heritage. This book acts as a model for similar inquiries across global art historical and archaeological fields and disciplines.

Le bal des ombres by Joseph O'connor Book Summary:

Joseph O'Connor rejoint le catalogue des Editions Rivages après de longues années passées chez Phébus, où il était l'un des auteurs emblématiques. Grand romancier irlandais, il revient à la veine historique qui a fait son succès avec ce roman malicieux sur la vie de Bram Stoker, le créateur du mythique Dracula. Mais il refuse toute biographie romancée trop linéaire et se lance dans une fiction inventive, surprenante, qui évoque aussi une figure légendaire du théâtre anglais, l'actrice Ellen Terry, sorte de Sarah Bernhardt londonienne, figure féministe et puissante. Roman d'amour, roman sur les mystères et les errances de la création, ce texte est une célébration de l'Art de raconter et de vivre des histoires.
