Book Excerpt :

Deriving from the French word rocaille, in reference to the curved forms of shellfish, and the Italian barocco, the French created the term ‘Rococo’. Appearing at the beginning of the 18th century, it rapidly spread to the whole of Europe. Extravagant and light, Rococo responded perfectly to the spontaneity of the aristocracy of the time. In many aspects, this art was linked to its predecessor, Baroque, and it is thus also referred to as late Baroque style. While artists such as Tiepolo, Boucher and Reynolds carried the style to its apogee, the movement was often condemned for its superficiality. In the second half of the 18th century, Rococo began its decline. At the end of the century, facing the advent of Neoclassicism, it was plunged into obscurity. It had to wait nearly a century before art historians could restore it to the radiance of its golden age, which is rediscovered in this work by Klaus H. Carl and Victoria Charles.

Book Short Summary:

Baroque and Rococo Art and Architecture is the first in-depth history of one of the great periods of Western art, spanning the years 1585 to 1785. The text treats the major media—painting, sculpture, drawings, prints, and architecture—as well as gardens, furniture, tapestries, costume, jewelry, and ceramics, all in terms of their original function and patronage and with emphasis on the social, political and cultural context. Organized by country and medium, the book contains biographies of the leading creative figures of the time, from Caravaggio and Rembrandt to Watteau and Hogarth. Significantly, Professor Neuman offers the fullest account to date of women artists and the representation of women and families in art. Additionally, drawing from recent scholarship, the text explores such fields as Spanish polychrome sculpture and Viceregal American painting. Baroque and Rococo Art and Architecture reviews traditional and recent strategies for interpreting artworks. It also traces the dissemination of visual ideas through prints and drawings—the forerunners of today’s art reproductions and digital media. In special sections the text raises questions regarding the nature of perception and how artists transfer optical data to the canvas. Artists’ techniques, from painting and printmaking to sculpting in marble and casting in bronze, are explained. Analysis of the institutions of art, such as the royal academies, apprenticeship systems, and artists’ exhibition rooms, complements an examination of collecting at all levels of society. The book is exceptional in considering issues related to authenticity and the relative value of artworks based on attribution. The illustrations comprise a visual resource of unprecedented quality, with some 450 images reproduced in full color and in a large format that ensures high detail and emphasizes recent conservation efforts. Finally, an extensive glossary introduces seventeenth- and eighteenth-century art terms. Note: MySearchLab does not come automatically packaged with this text.

Book Short Summary:

Rococo rassemble six récits écrits entre 1916 et 1933. La mort du cygne cabriole sur fond de rivalité entre une danseuse de l'Opéra de Paris et une étoile bolchevique. La semaine de Bath consigne l'exil doré de la cour anglaise et des corps diplomatiques dans la station balnéaire alors que les Allemands menacent Londres en 1916. Nœuds coulants d'Asie s'enroule autour d'histoires de poisons orientaux et féminins. Mort du roi de la chance conte l'histoire d'un joueur extraordinaire tombant à cause d'un caprice de sa fiancée. L'enfant de cent ans confronte une neurasthénique atrocement belle au « vertige mortel de son inexistence ». Feu ! est une farce incendiaire et mondaine sur le suicide. Mr. U arrange une rencontre à trois heures du matin entre un quidam new-yorkais et un revenant chinois vieux de mille ans... Ce cocktail "baroque" offre un condensé de l'art morandien : virtuosité, culture et confiance infinie dans les pouvoirs de l'imagination.

Book Short Summary:

En associant le mot rocaille, référence aux formes alambiquées des coquillages, à l’italien baroco, les Français donnèrent naissance au terme de « rococo ». Apparu au début du XVIIIe siècle, il s’étendit rapidement à l’ensemble de l’Europe. Extravagant et aérien, le Rococo répondait parfaitement à la désinvolture de l’aristocratie d’alors. Dans bien des aspects, cet art s’apparenta à son prédécesseur baroque, ce qui lui valut parfois le qualificatif de Baroque tardif. Et, si des artistes tels Tiepolo, Boucher ou Reynolds portèrent le Rococo à son apogée, il fut souvent condamné pour sa superficialité. Dans la seconde moitié du XVIIIe siècle, le Rococo entama son déclin. À la fin du siècle, face à l’avènement du Néoclassicisme, il fut plongé dans l’obscurité et il fallut attendre près d’un siècle pour que les historiens de l’art lui rendent, à nouveau, l’éclat de son âge d’or, que nous font redécouvrir ici Klaus H. Carl et Victoria Charles.

Book Short Summary:

This is the second volume of Friedell's monumental A Cultural History of the Modern Age. A key figure in the flowering of Viennese culture between the two world wars, this three volume work is considered his masterpiece. The centuries covered in this second volume mark the victory of the scientifi c mind: in nature-research, language-research, politics, economics, war, even morality, poetry, and religion. All systems of thought produced in this century, either begin with the scientifi c outlook as their foundation or regard it as their highest and fi nal goal. Friedell claims three main streams pervade the eighteenth century: Enlightenment, Revolution, and Classicism. In ordinary use, by "Enlightenment" we mean an extreme rationalistic tendency of which preliminary stages were noted in the seventeenth century. Th e term "Classicism", is well understood. Under the term "Revolution" Friedell includes all movements directed against what has been dominant and traditional. Th e aims of such movements were remodeling the state and society, banning all esthetic canons, and dethronement of reason by sentiment, all in the name of the "Return to Nature." Th e Enlightenment tendency might be seen as laying the ground for an age of revolution. Th is second volume continues Friedell's dramatic history of the driving forces of the twentieth century.

Book Short Summary:

Décryptez l’art d'Antoine Watteau en moins d’une heure ! Légèreté, frivolité, insouciance... Watteau, mieux que quiconque, a été capable de traduire dans ses toiles vibrantes la nouvelle ambiance de la Régence. Foudroyé par la tuberculose à l'âge de 37 ans, ce dessinateur hors pair, initiateur du mouvement rococo, est l'un des plus grands artistes de la France du XVIIIe siècle. Reconnaissant son formidable talent, l'Académie crée même un tout nouveau genre spécialement pour lui : la fête galante. Ce livre vous permettra d’en savoir plus sur : - Le contexte politique et culturel dans lequel Antoine Watteau s’inscrit - La vie de l'artiste et son parcours - Les caractéristiques et spécificités de son art - Une sélection d’œuvres-clés de Watteau - Son impact dans l’histoire de l’art Le mot de l’éditeur : « Dans ce numéro de la série "50MINUTES | Artistes", Eliane Reynold de Seresin nous emmène dans l'univers léger, évanescent et délicat d'Antoine Watteau. L'auteure s'attarde particulièrement sur les spécificités majeures de son art, évoquant bien entendu le style rococo et le genre de la fête galante, dont il est le maître incontesté. Trois œuvres, ou plutôt trois chefs-d'œuvre, illustrent son propos : Pèlerinage à l'île de Cythère, Pierrot et L'Enseigne de Gersaint. De quoi découvrir les multiples facettes de ce peintre-saltimbanque qui marche sans cesse sur le fil des émotions. » Stéphanie Felten À PROPOS DE LA SÉRIE 50MINUTES | Artistes La série « Artistes » de la collection « 50MINUTES » aborde plus de cinquante artistes qui ont profondément marqué l’histoire de l’art, du Moyen Âge à nos jours. Chaque livre a été conçu à la fois pour les passionnés d’art et pour les amateurs curieux d’en savoir davantage en peu de temps.

Book Short Summary:

Poems and Ballads was the first collection of poetry by English poet, Algernon Charles Swinburne. First published in 1866, the book was very popular in its time, but it was also very controversial due to it's themes of lesbianism, sado-masochism, and anti-theism. The poems have common motifs, such as the ocean, time, and death. They also include mentions of some historical figures, such as Sappho and Jesus. Four years after Swinburne's book came out, the word 'lesbianism' was used for the first time to refer to female homosexuality. This is the 'First Series' of Poems and Ballads. Swinburne followed up his success with a Second and Third series collection. Full chapter list

Book Short Summary:

In the late 1990s, Rosalind Krauss, one of the principal theorists of post-modernism in the arts, began using the term “post-medium” in her work. It was a nod to the American “ordinary language” philosopher Stanley Cavell, who had been thinking through a concept of medium in art for 30 years. Today with the decline of post-modernism, Stanley Cavell has emerged as one of the most important figures for thinking again about the visual arts, film and theatre. Stanley Cavell and the Arts looks at Cavell's extensive writings on a wide variety of artforms and at a number of writers (Michael Fried, William Rothman) influenced by his work. Over a 50-year career, Cavell wrote about visual art, photography, classical music, Shakespeare, the plays of Samuel Beckett and perhaps most notably Hollywood cinema. Stanley Cavell and the Arts offers an overview of Cavell's writings on the arts, situating them within his wider philosophical practice, analysing in detail his treatment of particular art forms and looking at the work of those he has deeply shaped.

* AWARDED BEST ANTHOLOGY BY THE ART ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND *How has Asia been imagined, represented and transferred both literally and visually across linguistic, geopolitical and cultural boundaries? This book explores the shifting roles of those who produce, critique and translate creative forms and practices, for which distinctions of geography, ethnicity, tradition and modernity have become fluid. Drawing on accounts of modern and contemporary art, film, literature, fashion and performance, it challenges established assumptions of the cultural products of Asia.Special attention is given to the role of cultural translators or 'long-distance cultural specialists' whose works bridge or traverse different worlds, with the inclusion of essays by three important artists who share personal accounts of their experiences creating and showing artworks that negotiate diverse cultural contexts.With contributions from key scholars of Asian art and culture, including art historian John Clark and anthropologist Clare Harris, alongside fresh voices in the field, Asia Through Art and Anthropology will be essential reading for students and scholars of anthropology, art history, Asian studies, visual and cultural studies.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The publication of the color plates of works by Phaptawan Suwannakudt and Savanhdary Vongpoothorn is funded by the Australian Government.

In recent years, the Anglo-Italian sphere of artistic exchange in relation to painting has been an increasingly productive area of research. Here, contributors shift the focus onto the two countries' equally significant sculpture trade. This volume of selected essays by economic and social historians and historians of material culture and art investigates the varied roles and functions of sculpture and the ways in which this particular cultural exchange was manifested. Issues of business and the markets for sculpture are highlighted, both in the context of producers of "high"art and in the wider market of religious, garden and decorative sculpture.

Book Short Summary:

Contemporary societies are saturated with pictures. They are globally a part of everyday life, and they are seductive, offering values and beliefs in such highly pleasurable forms that it is often difficult to resist their power to persuade. Yet interpreting pictures is largely neglected in schools. Picture Pedagogy addresses this head on, showing that pictures can be used as a powerful form of classroom pedagogy. Duncum explores key concepts and curriculum examples to empower you to support students to develop a critical consciousness about pictures, whether teaching art, media, language or social studies. Drawing on the interpretive concepts of representation, rhetoric, ideology, aesthetic pleasure, intertextuality and the gaze, Duncum shows how you can develop your students' skills so that their power as viewers can match the power of pictures to seduce. Examples from the history of fine art and contemporary popular mass media, including Big Data and fake news, are drawn together and shown to be appealing to the same aesthetic pleasures. Often these pleasures are benign, but also problematic, helping to promote morally questionable ideas about a range of topics including gender, race and sexual orientation, and this is explored fully.

Book Short Summary:

The Return of the Baroque in Modern Culture explores the re-invention of the early European Baroque within the philosophical, cultural, and literary thought of postmodernism in Europe, the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Gregg Lambert argues that the "return of the Baroque" expresses a principle often hidden behind the cultural logic of postmodernism in its various national and cultural incarnations, a principal often in variance with Anglo-American modernism. Writers and theorists examined include Walter Benjamin, Paul de Man, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Octavio Paz, and Cuban novelists Alejo Carpentier and Severo Sarduy. A highly original and compelling reinterpretation of modernity, The Return of the Baroque in Modern Culture answers Raymond Williams' charge to create alternative national and international accounts of aesthetic and cultural history in order to challenge the centrality of Anglo-American modernism.

La Vénitienne Rosalba Carriera (1673-1757) acquit un succès international grâce à ses portraits et à sa maîtrise exceptionnelle du pastel. Auteure d'écrits riches et variés, elle est aussi connue comme poète et diariste. Dans cette étude, l'accent est mis, en premier lieu, sur l'oeuvre picturale et le parcours dans l'Europe du XVIIIe siècle de cette femme peintre, connue essentiellement pour ses portraits féminins. Puis l'ouvrage met l'accent sur ses qualités d'épistolière et de diariste et met en lumière l'autre facette de l'artiste, à savoir la femme de lettres en prise avec son temps dont elle fut un témoin attentif.
