(H/B) VENICE AND VITRUVIUS
READING VENICE WITH DANIELE BARBARO AND ANDREA PALLADIO
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0607

In about 35-25 B.C.E., the Roman architect Vitruvius produced his encyclopaedic ten-book summary of the principles of Hellenistic architecture, "De architectura" ("On Architecture"). These ideas have stimulated architects ever since. In the mid-16th century, the architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) and the humanist Daniele Barbaro (1513-1570) looked to the city of Venice in order to understand and interpret Vitruvius' text, which was still in need of clarification and which would enable them to solve contemporary architectural problems.

(P/B) DUBUFFET AS ARCHITECT
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0567

As the champion of "Art Brut," the artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) is remembered foremost as a painter. Yet his creative instinct extended far beyond the parameters of paint. Later in his life, in 1965, his interest in architecture was sparked by a commission for two large-scale paintings for the University of Nanterre in Paris. Although he ultimately abandoned that project, he became intrigued by the idea of producing large works in a more enduring format, capable of withstanding the elements. He experimented with different media in sear...

Just before the outbreak of World War II, young Witold Gombrowicz left his home in Poland and set sail for South America.

(H/B) LEONARDO DA VINCI AND THE ART OF SCULPTURE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0483

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is renowned as a painter, designer, draftsman, architect, engineer, scientist, and theorist. His work as a sculptor is not commonly acknowledged, and many have argued that Leonardo believed that sculpture was an inferior art form ("of lesser genius than painting"). Challenging and overturning these assumptions, Leonardo da Vinci and the Art of Sculpture looks at the sculptural projects that the artist undertook, as well as the late Renaissance sculptures that were indebted to him. Leonardo consistently drew ...

Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0171

Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0682

(H/B) LEONARDO, MICHELANGELO, AND THE ART OF THE FIGURE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0656

In late 1504 and early 1505, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) and Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) were both at work on commissions they had received to paint murals in Florence's City Hall. Leonardo was to depict a historic battle between Florence and Milan, Michelangelo one between Florence and Pisa. Though neither project was ever completed, the painters' mythic encounter shaped art and its history in the decades and centuries that followed. This concise, lucid, and thought-provoking book looks again at the one moment when Leonardo ...
