If Andy Warhol could have traveled through time, where would he have gone? Where's Warhol? gives him his very own time machine, and finds out... Join Andy on a tour through time as he visits the art of the past. From Michelangelo at work on the Sistine Chapel, to Jean-Michel Basquait painting the streets of New York, via the French Impressionists and the Bauhaus, Andy has immersed himself in 12 iconic moments from Art History and the reader's challenge is to find him in each. Whilst searching for Andy amongst the crowds, readers can also find a host of historical characters and features from each period. Each scene has been recreated from careful archival research by art historian Catherine Ingram and painstakingly llustrated by Andrew Rae. Educational, fun and visually engaging, Where's Warhol? is the alternative, illustrated guide to the history of art for both adults and children.
Andy Warhol, the iconic Pop artist, presented himself as the
vacuous, dumb kid, famously saying, "If you want to know all about
Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings . and there I
am. There's nothing behind it." This book penetrates the surface
and explores Warhol's art from his beginnings as a commercial
artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter. Vivid
illustrations reveal Andy's worlds: his childhood in Pittsburgh,
his chaotic Manhattan mansion, and the Silver Factory, where New
York's bright new things hung out and had fun.
* In 1956 Time magazine referred to Pollock as 'Jack the Dripper'. His iconic paintings stretch out with the generosity and scale of the landscape of America's West where the artist grew up. Pollock said that he painted 'out of his consciousness': the cathartic dribbled paint reflected his troubled mind. This book traces Pollock's career and discusses how his loose, individual style was used as a political weapon in the Cold War, representing America as the free, democratic nation. Illustrations simplify the theory and reveal the hidden meaning behind the mesh of painted lines. Series writer Catherine Ingram brings her extensive knowledge to the book, while specially commissioned illustrations by New York-based illustrator Peter Arkle vividly portray the text.

Many researchers and China observers would agree that understanding how China pursues global communication is critical for assessing its growing soft power. While soft power as a concept has, in many ways, become almost inextricably linked with the PRC's (People's Republic of China) international diplomacy of the twenty-first century, the specific role of global media within soft power diplomacy and the corresponding influence of Western mediated public diplomacy within China is a lacuna that has remained largely unexplored. Moreover, the different Chinese and Western perspectives on the influence of global media and public diplomacy on Sino-Western relations, and the changing role of global media on this crucial aspect of international politics, have not yet been critically examined. This volume presents a broad social science audience with recent innovative scholarship and research findings on global media and public diplomacy concerning Sino-Western relations. It focuses on the implicit nexus between global media and public diplomacy, and their actual utilisation in and impact on the shifting relationships between China and the West. Special attention is given to the changing nature of globalised media in both China and Western nations, and how globalised media is influencing, shaping and changing international politics. The contributions delve deeply into both theory and practice, and focus especially upon the analysis of several key aspects of the issue from both Chinese and Western perspectives. This combination of approaches distinguishes the volume from most other published works on the topic, and greatly enriches our knowledge base in this important contemporary field.

Salvador Dali is one of the most popular artists in the world,
known for his lavish lifestyle, gravity-defying moustache, and
bizarre art. This book tells the story of Dali's life and explores
the meaning of his Surrealist paintings. It goes beyond his fine
art practice and discusses his venture into the commercial world
from his extravagant jewelry to his cheeky design for the Chupa
Chups lollipops. Surrealism is revealed as a way of life;
illustrations bring to life the extraordinary Dream Ball at the Coq
Rouge, his fabulous home at Port Lligat, and his underwater fantasy
at the World Fair's Surrealist pavilion. Fun, provoking, and
endlessly frustrating, Dali is brought under the spotlight.
