Bridget Riley's paintings are developed carefully over time, the result of methodically working through pictorial variables such as colour, tone, scale, and rhythm. Studies are central to this process, allowing Riley to concentrate on the analysis and synthesis that lie at the heart of her working practice. Riley says, 'Because my work is based on enquiry, studies are my chief method of exploration and my way into paintings' (2005). This volume richly illustrates the thinking that goes into Riley's work through a selection of over 150 drawings, colour analyses, notations, scale studies and cartoons, most of which were exhibited at the artist's recent seminal retrospective exhibitions in Edinburgh and London from 2019 to 2020 organized by the National Galleries of Scotland. The selection spans most of Riley's working life, tracing the origins and evolving nature of her remarkable body of work. Riley's beginnings are also documented through selected childhood drawings, work made during and immediately following her studies at Goldsmiths' College and the Royal College of Art, and her early explorations into abstraction. The artist's working method is brought into high relief in a newly commissioned conversation with Riley and Sir John Leighton, Director of the National Galleries of Scotland. The text explores the cardinal moments in the artist's practice and the impulses that bring her work into existence. The volume also includes four previously published texts dedicated to Riley's studies and practice written by the artist herself, art historians, curators and museum directors, which shed further light on the enduring role of drawing and the process of exploration central to her work. With over 200 illustrations

Desperately Young introduces the masterpieces left behind by some of the greatest rising stars in fine art - all of whom died before their thirtieth birthday. Precocious talent seeps from each artist's work, along with a sense of unfulfilled potential. Informative biographies detail their legacies, while their tragic deaths lead us to wonder what heights they might've reached, had their lives not been cut short. Richly illustrated, Desperately Young presents prime examples of each artist's work, demonstrating how our cultural heritage is just a little narrower for their loss. From Europe to America to Japan and the Indian Subcontinent, the mid14-hundreds to the late 20th century, this book hails the acknowledged greats and introduces those who died before they could leave an indelible mark on history. A compendium of 109 artists who fell prey to sickness, warfare, heartbreak or bad luck, Desperately Young is the only book to provide an in-depth study of artists who died young.

R398 Discovery Miles 3 980 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Catalogue exploring the five spectacular views of the Fortress of Koenigstein in Dresden by Venetian painter Bernardo Bellotto, nephew and pupil of Canaletto Bernardo Bellotto (1722-1780) ranks amongst the very greatest view painters of eighteenth-century Europe. Today, he is best known for his views of northern European cities: large-scale works characterised by panoramic compositions, a strongly contrasted use of light and shadow, and meticulous attention to architectural detail. This book provides an overview of Bellotto's life and career, as well as a record of the historic reuniting of his five spectacular views of the fortress of Koenigstein, displayed together for the first time in over 250 years, following the National Gallery's recent acquisition of The Fortress of Koenigstein from the North in 2017. Commissioned by August III, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, these works depicting the fortress from different viewpoints are undoubtedly Bellotto's finest non-urban paintings. These remarkable pictures are imbued with a monumentality rarely seen at this time and the series dramatically illustrates the very different direction in which Bellotto took the tradition of European view painting.

The volume is dedicated to Shepard Fairey (Charleston, 1970), one of the best known urban art artists in the world. Established under the pseudonym of OBEY thanks to a successful campaign of stickers spread in a viral way, depicting the face of wrestling champion Andre The Giant, the American artist has achieved international visibility thanks to the portrait of Obama, immortalised in the iconic 2008 'Hope' poster for his presidential campaign. In these pages the artist presents 30 recent unpublished graphic works (2019), which retrace 30 years of activity through his most famous icons: many social and political themes that inspired his production, from the struggle for peace and against racial violence, the defense of human and gender dignity up to environment protection. The graphics constitute a unique and unrepeatable concept, designed specifically for the Gallery of Modern Art in Rome, where they are put in dialogue with important works from the contemporary art collection of the Capitoline Superintendence, selected by the artist himself. The volume, with an intervention by Shepard Fairey and numerous critical texts, is completed by a biography and bibliographical apparatus. Text in English and Italian.

R1,017 Discovery Miles 10 170 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

With a few notable exceptions, the fundamental role that women played in the development of abstract art has long been underestimated, and their work has not received the same critical attention as that of their male counterparts. Now, at last, the tide is turning. The latest historiographical advances illustrated by numerous recent publications, monographs and thematic exhibitions make it possible to reassess the importance of the contribution of women artists to the different currents of abstraction, while at the same time questioning the patterns of the past. Edited by Christine Macel, this catalogue and the exhibition it accompanies highlights the contributions of a hundred or so women artists to abstraction up to the 1980s, with a few unprecedented forays into the 19th century. By focusing on the careers of artists so often unjustly eclipsed, the book questions the established canons and offers an alternative history of abstraction, from the symbolist abstraction of Hilma Af Klint, to the sensual abstraction of Huguette Caland, to the purist non-objective approach of Verena Von Loewensberg. Essays by noted scholars explore the techniques, concerns and legacies of these women, shedding light on their unique experiences and offering keen new reflections on their work and the movement as a whole.

Paul Klee (Hardcover): Susie Hodge Paul Klee (Hardcover)
Susie Hodge
R300 Discovery Miles 3 000 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This lavishly illustrated hardback presents the life and work of Paul Klee - a gifted artist whose experimentation with colour and abstraction made him a key figure in the development of modernism. Influenced by Cubism, Expressionism and Surrealism, Klee's own work was varied and experimental. After joining the German group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), Klee fought in the First World War before emerging as one of the leading artists in Germany. He taught at the world-famous Bauhaus school of art for 10 years alongside Wassily Kandinsky, before Nazi rule forced its closure. This full-colour book charts Klee's development as an artist, the themes that preoccupied him, artists he worked with as well as recounting a remarkable life lived in the shadow of war and oppression. This biographic detail is accompanied by useful timelines, feature spreads and a selection of his most iconic paintings - including Senecio, Twittering Machine and Fish Magic. A wonderful introduction to one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Great Artists series by Arcturus Publishing introduces some of the most significant artists across history, looking at their lives, techniques and inspirations, as well as presenting a selection of their best work.
