Bruegel. The Complete Paintings - 40th Anniversary Edition (Hardcover): Jurgen Muller Bruegel. The Complete Paintings - 40th Anniversary Edition (Hardcover)

The life and times of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1526/30-1569) were marked by stark cultural conflict. He witnessed religious wars, the Duke of Alba's brutal rule as governor of the Netherlands, and the palpable effects of the Inquisition. To this day, the Flemish artist remains shrouded in mystery. We know neither where nor exactly when he was born. But while early scholarship emphasized the vernacular character of his painting and graphic work, modern research has attached greater importance to its humanistic content. Starting out as a print designer for publisher Hieronymus Cock, Bruegel produced numerous print series that were distributed throughout Europe. These depicted vices and virtues alongside jolly peasant festivals and sweeping landscape panoramas. He then increasingly turned to painting, working for the cultural elite of Antwerp and Brussels. Rather than idealizing reality, he bravely confronted the issues of his day, addressing the horrors of religious warfare and taking a critical stand against the institution of the Church. To this end, Bruegel developed his own pictorial language of dissidence, lacing innocuous everyday scenes with subliminal statements in order to escape repercussions. This book is derived from our XXL monograph, which saw TASCHEN undertake a comprehensive photographic survey of the artist's oeuvre. The result boasts exceptional details and reproductions, unveiling Bruegel's larger-than-life universe with unprecedented clarity. This volume, in celebration of our 40th anniversary, presents all 40 paintings, accompanied by enlarged details and accessible, immersive texts. About the series TASCHEN turns 40 this year! Since we started our work as cultural archaeologists in 1980, TASCHEN has become synonymous with accessible publishing, helping bookworms around the world curate their own library of art, anthropology, and aphrodisia at an unbeatable price. In 2020, we celebrate 40 years of incredible books by staying true to our company credo.

He witnessed religious wars, the Duke of Alba's brutal rule as governor of the Netherlands, and the palpable effects of the Inquisition. To this day, the Flemish artist remains shrouded in mystery.

These depicted vices and virtues alongside jolly peasant festivals and sweeping landscape panoramas. He would eventually increasingly turn to painting, working for the cultural elite of Antwerp and Brussels. This monograph is a testament to Bruegel's evolution as an artist, one who bravely confronted the issues of his day all the while proposing new inventions and solutions. Rather than idealizing reality, he addressed the horrors of religious warfare and took a critical stand against the institution of the Church. To this end, he developed his own pictorial language of dissidence, lacing innocuous everyday scenes with subliminal statements in order to escape repercussions. To produce this XXL-sized collection, TASCHEN undertook a comprehensive photographic campaign, capturing all the breadth and splendid detail of Bruegel's oeuvre like never before. The result gathers all 40 paintings, 65 drawings, and 89 engravings in pristine reproductions-each piece a unique witness to both the religious mores and the close-knit folk culture of Bruegel's time.Marking the 450th anniversary of his death and his first ever monographic exhibition at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, this volume is the most immersive journey into Bruegel's unique visual universe.

2019 jahrt sich Rembrandts Todesjahr zum 350ten Mal. Die Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden, die eine der bedeutendsten Sammlung seiner Gemalde, Zeichnungen und Druckgrafiken bewahren, nehmen dieses Jubilaum zum Anlass, den Kunstler in einer Ausstellung des Kupferstich-Kabinetts zu feiern. Rembrandts Strich wird sich auf den Grafiker und Zeichner konzentrieren und einen frischen Blick auf ihn suchen, der vielleicht wie kein zweiter bis heute als sogenannter "artists` artist" andere Kunstler zur Auseinandersetzung angeregt hat. Die einzigartige Dresdner Sammlung - etwa 20 Zeichnungen, die Rembrandt heute zugeschrieben werden und das nahezu vollstandige druckgrafische Werk - bildet die Grundlage fur die herausragende Ausstellung. Sie wird ein besonderes Augenmerk auf seine erzahlerischen Kompositionen, radierten Selbstbildnissen und die Studien seiner Frau Saskia richten. Die Ausstellung umfasst rund 100 Werke aus allen Schaffensperioden Rembrandts und etwa 50 Radierungen und Zeichnungen von Schulern seiner Werkstatt sowie von spateren Kunstlern, die Rembrandt als Autoritat und kreative Inspirationsquelle verstanden haben. Die lange Reihe derer, die ihr Selbstbildnis in Auseinandersetzung mit Rembrandt definierten, reicht von unmittelbaren Nachfolgern und Meistern des 18. Jahrhunderts wie Benedetto Castiglione und Georg Friedrich Schmidt, uber den kongenialen Francisco de Goya ins 20. Jahrhundert bis heute. Als Beispiele moegen Edouard Manet, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Lovis Corinth, Kathe Kollwitz, Max Beckmann und Pablo Picasso sowie Marlene Dumas und William Kentridge, aber auch Kunstler aus der DDR wie A.R. Penck dienen. Indem Werke dieser Kunstler einbezogen werden, wird Rembrandt als einer der wichtigsten "Kunstlerkunstler" aller Zeiten vorgestellt. Ausgewahlte Gegenuberstellungen werden den heutigen Betrachtern helfen, das Feuerwerk an Kreativitat besser zu verstehen, das Rembrandt nicht nur zu seiner Zeit freisetzte, sondern auch heute noch entzundet. Zeitlos fesselnd bleibt Rembrandt durch seine Radikalitat in Auswahl und unkonventioneller Interpretation christlicher und profaner Bildthemen, nicht weniger durch seine Experimentierfreudigkeit - besonders im Gebrauch grafischer Techniken - als auch durch seinen reflektierten und dabei oft humorvollen Intellekt, der von seinem sinnlich zupackenden Blick auf die Welt erganzt wird. Mit leichter Hand, fast spielerisch doch voller Energie, sprengte er in seiner Zeit Konventionen. Mit seinem freien, unverkennbaren Strich schuf er Bildwelten, aus denen sein schier unerschoepfliches Interesse an der Natur als Schoepfung spricht, sei es die aussere oder die innere des Menschen. Damit bietet sich eine Fulle von Anknupfungspunkten und Anregungen fur Kunstler und Betrachter.

All the 1990s movies most worth remembering All the 1990s movies most worth remembering. It was a delicate and complex task that required a fair bit of soul-searching, but we did it: we took a complete list of all movies released in the 1990s around the world and whittled it down to just 144 of our very favorites. These are the movies that emblematize the 90s and most deserved to be remembered, preserved, and passed down to future generations. But "Favorite Movies of the 90s" is more than just a list. It's also an opulent factbook that any self-respecting moviegoer shouldn't be without. Packed full of photos and film stills in two weighty volumes, this set will bring you right back to the 90s with reminders of films you saw and plenty of reasons to see the ones you missed. This was a decade when independent cinema went mainstream and, leveling the playing field, changed the movie business forever, while big-budget special effects kept Hollywood strongly in the game; the diversity of the films included here bears witness to this phenomenon.
Features:
Four to ten pages for each film, including lots of illustrations, cast/crew credits, and a summary of the film describing the genre, history, filming, facts, budget, box office, etc. Actor and director biographies and explanations of film concepts and techniques in glossary entries thematically linked to each film List of Academy and film festival awards Memorable lines and quotes from the media Actor, director, subject, and title index

The fourth edition of this textbook has been thoroughly revised in order to reflect the central role which geodesy has achieved in the past ten years. The Global Geodetic Observing System established by the IAG utilizes a variety of techniques to determine the geometric shape of the earth and its kinematics, the variations of earth rotation, and the earth's gravity field. Space techniques play a fundamental role, with recent space missions also including gravity field recovery. Terrestrial techniques are important for regional and local applications, and for validating the results of the space missions. Global and regional reference systems are now well established and widely used. They also serve as a basis for geo-information systems. The analysis of the time variation of the geodetic products provides the link to other geosciences and contributes to proper modelling of geodynamic processes. The book follows the principal directions of geodesy, providing the theoretical background as well as the principles of measurement and evaluation methods. Selected examples of instruments illustrate the geodetic work. An extensive reference list supports further studies. The book is intended to serve as an introductory textbook for graduate students as well as a reference for scientists and engineers in the fields of geodesy, geophysics, surveying engineering and geomatics.

The Dresden collection's singular group of Rembrandt works - about 20 drawings attributed to the master today and the nearly complete oeuvre of etchings- will provide the basis for this remarkable publication. It will have a particular focus on Rembrandt's narrative compositions, printed self-portraits, studies of his wife Saskia, and will include works from all periods of his oeuvre plus prints and drawings by artists from his workshop and followers. The list of artists who understood Rembrandt as a dynamic authority and source of inspiration is long, reaching from his immediate followers to masters of the 18th century, from Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione to Jonathan Richardson to the kindred spirit Francisco de Goya, into the 20th century and up to the present day. Examples include Edouard Manet, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Lovis Corinth, Kathe Kollwitz, Max Beckmann, Pablo Picasso, as well as Marlene Dumas and William Kentridge and artists from the GDR such as A.R. Penck. By including works by these artists, the exhibtion and catalogue foreground Rembrandt as one of the most important 'artists' artist' of all time. Select juxtapositions will help the reader better understand the fi reworks of creativity that Rembrandt not only lit in his own time but those he continues to ignite today. Rembrandt remains eternally captivating, not only because of his radical choices and unconventional interpretations of Christian and profane pictorial subjects, but also because of his joy in experimentation, especially in the use of printing and drawing techniques, and his refl ective, humorous intellect, complemented by his sensually direct approach to the world. With a light hand, he broke open the conventions of his era. The pictorial worlds that he created with his free, decisive mark convey his near inexhaustible interest in nature as creation, whether it be the human exterior or interior, and off er a wealth of connecting points and constellations for other artists as well as for the viewer.

The research presented in this book discusses how to efficiently retrieve track and trace information for an item of interest that took a certain path through a complex network of manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and consumers. To this end, a super-ordinate system called "Discovery Service" is designed that has to handle large amounts of data, high insert-rates, and a high number of queries that are submitted to the discovery service. An example that is used throughout this book is the European pharmaceutical supply chain, which faces the challenge that more and more counterfeit medicinal products are being introduced. Between October and December 2008, more than 34 million fake drug pills were detected at customs control at the borders of the European Union. These fake drugs can put lives in danger as they were supposed to fight cancer, take effect as painkiller or antibiotics, among others. The concepts described in this book can be adopted for supply chain management use cases other than track and trace, such as recall, supply chain optimization, or supply chain analytics.

Conflicts between agents acting in a multi-agent environment arise for different reasons, involve different concepts, and are dealt with in different ways, depending on the kind of agents and on the domain where they are considered. Agents may have conflicting beliefs, conflicting goals, or may have to share limited resources. Consequently, conflicts may be expressed as mere differences, or as contradictions, or even as social conflicts. They may be avoided, solved, kept, or even created deliberately. Conflicting Agents studies conflicts in the context of multi-agent systems, i.e. artificial societies modeled on the basis of autonomous, interacting agents. This book addresses questions about types of conflicts, conflict definitions and the use of conflicts as trigger functions for activities in multi-agent systems. The book is also dedicated to questions of conflict management, resolution and avoidance, i.e. the question of how agents cope with conflicts and conflicting situations.

In diesem Lehrbuch wird ein direkter Weg von der reellen Analysis einer Variablen in die Funktionentheorie aufgezeigt. Dabei werden schon klassische Themen der eindimensionalen reellen Analysis (wie die Differenzial- und Integralrechnung) weitgehend aus komplexer Sichtweise dargestellt. Das Ziel ist eine in sich geschlossene Darstellung bis hin zu den Rungesatzen und der Dynamik ganzer Funktionen. Den einzelnen Kapiteln angehangte kurze Abschnitte uber Konzepte der Funktionentheorie geben Ausblicke auch in die hoeherdimensionale Analysis sowie einen Eindruck von deren universeller Bedeutung fur die Mathematik. Das Buch ist so aufgebaut, dass Teile auch als Grundlage fur ein Seminar genutzt werden koennen. Somit wird dieses faszinierende Gebiet der Mathematik auch Studierenden zuganglich, bei deren Studiengangen die Mathematik nicht im Zentrum steht und fur die ein klassischer Einstieg in die Funktionentheorie daher zu zeitaufwandig ware. Ihnen wird mit diesem Buch der Schritt in die komplexe Analysis ermoeglicht, durch den sie eine Vielzahl von Zusammenhangen erkennen koennen, die in der reellen Analysis verborgen bleiben.

Bislang wurde das deutsch-franzosische Verhaltnis stets nur als bilaterales Phanomen behandelt. Erstmals wird jetzt der Einfluss "dritter Faktoren" auf dieses Verhaltnis untersucht - im internationalen Kontext, in dem grosse, mittlere und kleinere Machte auf die bilateralen Beziehungen einwirkten, und in Hinblick auf internationale Konflikte wie die "Orientalische Frage." Mehr noch: der Einfluss transnationaler Wirkkrafte wie Konfessionen, Ideologien, aber auch soziookonomische und kulturelle Herausforderungen auf die deutsch-franzosischen Beziehungen werden analysiert. Die Herausgeber: Klaus-Jurgen Muller ist emeritierter Professor fur Neuere und Neueste Geschichte an der Universitat der Hamburg, Christian Baechler ist Professor fur Neuere und Neueste Geschichte an der Universitat Strasbourg."
