This volume presents an accessible selection of Professor Gombrich's best and most characteristic writing, and introduces the general reader to his ideas and arguments on many fundamental questions.

(H/B) THE PREFERENCE FOR THE PRIMITIVE
EPISODES IN THE HISTORY OF WESTERN TASTE AND ART
Εκδότης: PHAIDON
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

This monumental book - the last to be completed by the author - is a study of a recurring phenomenon in the history of changing taste in the visual arts: the feeling that older and less sophisticated (i.e. 'primitive') works are somehow morally and aesthetically superior to later works that are perceived as comparatively soft and decadent. In his first narrative work for over two decades, Professor Gombrich traces this fundamental idea back to Classical Antiquity, where he links it both with Cicero's observation that over-indulgence of the...

Modernist ideas have pervaded every form of design, from graphics to architecture, as well as being a key influence on art, literature and music. In this comprehensive survey, Richard Weston traces the course of Modernism from its nineteenth-century roots to its various contemporary manifestations. Weston examines rigorously the Modernist movements of the early twentieth century - Cubism, Surrealism, Futurism and Purism - to conclude with the 'Postmodernist' experiments of the 1980s and 90s. He shows how the 'tradition of the new' became t...

ABRIDGED EDITION
Εκδότης: PHAIDON
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

In 1967 critic Germano Celant defined the work of 13 young Italian artists as Arte Povera. Through sculpture and installation they explored the relation between art and life as made manifest through nature, elemental matter or cultural artefacts, and experienced via the body. Their innovative works are lyrical, open-ended combinations of unlikely fragments - a slab of marble with a lettuce, or fruit scattered among neon tubes - giving the most banal materials a metaphysical dimension. First exhibiting together in Italy in the late 1960s, A...

David Summers sets forth that current formalist, contextual and post-structural approaches fail to provide an adequate account of all art, particularly art produced outside the Western tradition. He argues that there are profound problems right at the heart of Western thinking about art, and his new framework is an attempt to resolve these problems. At the core of the argument is a proposal to replace the notion of the 'visual arts' with that of the 'spatial arts', comprising two fundamental categories: 'real space' and 'virtual space'. R...

Jeff Koons' art is sensuous and sexy, conceptual and playful. It speaks directly to the beholder and has done so since the 1980s, when Koons conquered the art world with his basketball sculptures and a blow-up rabbit transformed into stainless steel. And when he appeared in love scenes with his wife in the Made in Heaven series at the beginning of the 1990s and made a 12-meter-high puppy out of thousands of flowers and put it in front of the baroque castle in Arolsen, he dad gained a firm place in media attention.

Cubism was one of the most influential movements in Western art in the twentieth century. Beginning with the revolutionary experiments of Picasso and Braque in Paris between 1906 and 1908, Cubism gathered momentum and soon spread to the rest of Europe and America. The movement's rejection of illusionistic representation in favour of an autonomous pictorial language opened the way to abstraction. The Cubists also invented papier colle and collage and pioneered a new approach to sculpture, innovations that are still being explored today. Thi...

Art Nouveau was deliberately nouveau. With a spirit of willful reform, this "New Art" style between the 1880s and the First World War inflected architecture, design, painting, graphic work, applied arts, and illustration with a radical rejection of imitative historicism and a new undulating aesthetic of flowing lines and organic forms, ripe with linear freedom and a liberation from artistic tradition and expectation. Within this repertoire of sensual contours and natural motifs, Art Nouveau also followed the example of the English Arts and...

A natural heir to the delicacy of Boucher, Watteau and Fragonard. Delighting in the ample curves of the nudes he painted increasingly frequently in his later years, Renoir was also a master at capturing the spirit of Parisian life. His art is fi...

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) is rightly one of the best known of all nineteenth-century French artists. He conveys with a unique flair the glitter and glamour of Parisian nightlife, and at the same time lays bare its artificiality. Crippled and stunted form childhood by two falls that broke his thighs, he was forever isolated from society by his deformity. His response was to immerse himself in the dross of society. He threw himself into the capital’s demi-monde and chose to portray the more trivial - if vital - subjects: actresse...

There is no more extraordinary instance of a great artist's evolution than that of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851). Brought up within the confines of the neat topographical tradition of English watercolour, he left its limits far behind to soar into the realms of visual poetry and abstraction. By a kind of metamorphosis the young author of tinted architectural drawings in the style of the late eighteenth century turned into the colourist whose magic conjured up visions of sumptuous iridescence; the creator of tremendous images of...

Lucian Freud (1922-2011) was interested in the telling of truth. Always operating outside the main currents of 20th-century art, the esteemed portrait painter observed his subjects with the regimen and precision of a laboratory scientist. He recorded not only the blotches, bruises, and swellings of the living body, but also, beneath the flaws and folds of flesh, the microscopic details of what lies within: the sensation, the emotion, the intelligence, the bloom, and the inevitable, unstoppable decay. Despite rejecting parallels between him...

Impressionism continues to be one of the most fascinating movements in the history of modern art. It is also the most popular with the general public. Proof of this has been provided in recent years by blockbuster exhibitions of the works of Degas, Gauguin, van Gogh, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Monet, and by record sums realized from the sale of Impressionist paintings. Despite its popularity and a whole host of publications - the majority of them about the most famous names - many areas of Impressionism are still under-researched. Many ...

The seventeenth century was the Golden Age of Dutch painting, during which political independence and increasing prosperity created a new patrons of the arts among merchants and statesmen. Rembrandt, Hals and Vermeer, and a host of lesser-known talents, produced a dazzling variety of work, from intimate portraits to virtuoso still lifes, dramatic seascapes to coolly observed domestic interiors. This survey of the period presents a careful selection of paintings which marvellously evoke the spirit of a great age of creativity. Christopher B...

In the history of English art few painters have achieved the notoriety accorded to Dante Gabriel Rossetti. After his death in 1882 his brother, William Michael (Fig. 1), with admirable industry and an understandably evasive diplomacy, wrote and edited, between 1889 and 1906, volume after volume devoted to Rossetti's life and work. William's partisan account provoked William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) to write his own version of events, Pre-Raphaelitism and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, published in two massive volumes in 1905 and 1906, and ...

John William Waterhouse was born in Rome in 1849. This early baptism in Italy's classical heritage was to have a profound effect on his life's work, immersing his art in ancient myth and literary allegory. Throughout his schooldays, Waterhouse's artistic talent lay dormant, but his young mind was constantly nourished on a diet of ancient history which he read voraciously. It was while working as an apprentice in his father's art studio that the boy's ability as a painter emerged and he gained entrance as a scholar into the Royal Academy. T...

A polymath of the German Renaissance, Albrecht Durer (1471-1528) was a prolific artist, theorist, and writer whose works explored everything from religion to art theory to philosophy. His vast body of work includes altarpieces, portraits, self-portraits, watercolors, and books, but is most celebrated for its astonishing collection of woodcut prints, which transformed printmaking from an artisan practice into a whole new art form. Durer's woodcuts astonish in scale as much as detail. Through works such as Apocalypse and the Triumphal Arch ...

By 1942, when the U.S. joined the war, he had more than a million ardent enlisted fans who carried his pin-ups in backpacks and duffel bags as reminders of the American girls they'd left behind. When Esquire was charged with obscenity over a particularly spicy pin-up in 1943 the military stepped in to fight for The Varga Girl, declaring her necessary to maintain the morale of young fighting men. Today these wartime pin-ups are the most collectible of Vargas's wor...

In the work of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) lies an impact akin to a sudden acquisition of sight. His landscapes and seascapes scorch the eye with such ravishing light and color, with such elemental force, it is as if the sun itself were gleaming out of the frame. Appropriately known as "the painter of light", Turner worked in print, watercolor, and oils to transform landscape from serene contemplative scenes to pictures pulsating with life. He anchored his work to the River Thames and to the sea, but in the historical context...

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was one of the last great artists in the ukiyo-e tradition. Literally meaning "pictures of the floating world," ukiyo-e was a particular woodblock print genre of art that flourished between the 17th and 19th centuries. Subjects ranged from the bright lights and attractions of Edo (modern-day Tokyo), to spectacular natural landscapes. In the West, Hiroshige's prints became exemplary of the Japonisme that swept through Europe and defined the Western world's visual idea of Japan. Because they could be mass produc...

As cryptic as they are compelling, the masterpieces of Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) remain some of the most enduring enigmas of the art world. Their intricate, allegorical, and often startling content has captivated not only art historians, but also fashion designers, rock stars, writers, and punk rockers, as well as countless modern and contemporary artist successors. Although rooted in the Old Netherlandish tradition, Bosch developed a highly subjective, richly suggestive style to render both the celestial bliss of heaven and the grot...

Immersing himself in rural or small-town communities, Bruegel is particularly notable for his depiction of peasant experience and folk culture, earning the artist nickname "Peasant Bruegel."

Vibrant, graphic, and often monumental, Rivera's paintings carry the same live political and passionate charge as his personal biography.

But behind his glittering portrayals of the royal family and figures of state was another world of beggars, madmen, convicts, giants and cripples: the inhabitants of the artist's personal vision. Goya's original and haunting images convey the gamut of human experience; astonishingly innovative to his contemporaries, they remain extraordinarily compel...

Originating in Paris, the movement became a truly international force, and one with a profound impact on human visual experience.

No artist has rivalled John Constable (1776-1837) in his powers to express the beauties of the British countryside, especially the scenery of the native East Anglia. He sought above all to make «pure and unaffected representations of the scenes», and to this end he made detailed studies of the minutest phenomena of nature. He wrote: «my limited and abstracted art is to be found under every hedge, and in every lane...» But this feeling for such qualities has to be reconciled with the traditional -and what were for him the essential- demand...

For more than a century the popular image of an angel has been that of an angel by Fra Angelico. Perhaps his best known work is the series of fresco decorations in the convent of San Marco in Florence, where Angelico was a friar. These paintings tell the story of the life of Christ as v...

When the paintings of the Impressionists first appeared publicly in the 1870s, they created an entirely new type of exhibition picture - small, informal in composition, freely and spontaneously" painted, showing everyday scenes treated in clear bright colour. At the time, the Impressionist vision seemed unintelligible, the antithesis of art. Yet by the turn of the century, this way of painting had swept the western world, and the original masters of the movement in Paris had become rich and famous.

Whether Sargent would have seen himself as a social chronicler is another question. He painted because he wanted to and he painted society-portraits because they paid. He quickly earned a reputation as a fashionable painter who knew all the right people and was accorded their respect. Luckily for Sargent the second half of the nineteenth centu...

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was one of the most formidable artists of the late nineteenth century, and one whose work was to have a profound influence on the development of art in the twentieth century. He began as an Impressionist, but went on to develop a more two-dimensional, richly-coloured style in his constant search for a ‘lost paradise’ untouched by nineteenth-century civilization. Gauguin’s romantic and tragic life story is mirrored in the works in this outstanding anthology. Included are 48 full-page colour plates, not only of his b...

One of the leading lights of the Impressionist movement, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) remains a towering figure in art history with enduring public appeal. Sun-kissed, charming, and sensual, his work shows painting at its most lighthearted and luminous, while championing the plein air and color innovations of his time. Renoir's oeuvre was prolific, with some several thousand works in his lifetime. Much influenced by forerunners such as Courbet, Degas, Manet, Delacroix, he worked with contemporary peers such as Monet to explore fresh u...

Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was one of the most brilliant portrait painters of the eighteenth century, surpassing his great rival Reynolds with his ability to capture a likeness and in his superb handling of paint. He was also a talented and sensitive landscape painter and has been hailed as the father of the British landscape schools, paving the way for artists such as Constable and Turner. This book contains many of Gainsborough’s most famous works. Including Mr and Mrs Andrews and The Blue Boy, and also many lesser-known and revealing...

Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) was described by Henri Matisse as 'the father of us all', by Pablo Picasso as 'the mother who protects her children', and by Paul Klee as 'the teacher par excellence'. Great praise from great artists. What makes Cezanne so special? Why do these twentieth-century artists single him out for such attention? The very familiarity of many of Cezanne's pictures is a hindrance, making it difficult to look at them with fresh eyes. His paintings are easy on the eye: the colours are to the current taste, the subjects universa...

Celebrated around the world as a literary monument, The Divine Comedy, completed in 1321 and written by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) is widely considered the greatest work ever composed in the Italian language. The epic poem describes Dante's journey through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, representing, on a deeper level, the soul's path towards salvation. In the last few years of his life, Romantic poet and artist William Blake (1757-1827) produced 102 illustrations for Dante's masterwork, from pencil sketches to finished watercolors. Like Da...

From court portraits for the Spanish royals to horrific scenes of conflict and suffering, Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) made a mark as one of Spain's most revered and controversial artists. A master of form and light, his influence reverberates down the centuries, inspiring and fascinating artists from the Romantic Eugene Delacroix to Britart enfants terribles, the Chapman brothers. Born in Fuendetodos, Spain, in 1746, Goya was apprenticed to the Spanish royal family in 1774, where he produced etchings and tapestry cartoon...

To his contemporaries in late 16th-century Venice, El Greco (1541-1614) was a contrary fellow, an innate artist blessed with extraordinary talent, but stubborn in the pursuit of his own path. Throughout his career, as he progressed from Crete to Venice, to Rome and ultimately Toledo, Spain, "The Greek" stood apart from his peers, merging different Western art traditions to create a unique pictorial language. El Greco's single-minded style rejected naturalism and rejected accessibility. Works such as The Disrobing of Christ (1577-79), The B...

A bird-monster devouring sinners, naked bodies in tantric contortions, a pair of ears brandishing a sharpened blade: with nightmarish details and fantastical painterly schemes, Netherlandish visionary Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) secured his place as an art historical magnet. Five hundred years on from his death, his extraordinary works continue to enthrall scholars, artists, designers, and musicians. This large-scale TASCHEN monograph presents the complete Bosch oeuvre, celebrating the artist's staggering compositional scope and most b...

Commerce into art. This title deals with a critical observer of American society. Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is recognized today as the most important exponent of the Pop Art movement. He overturned the traditional understanding of art and placed in its stead a concept that retracts the individuality of the artist. Warhol was a critical observer of American society, exposing his compatriots' consumerism in his paintings ("Campbell and Brillo" series), as well as their fascination for sensational journalism. In 1963 Warhol founded his Factory ...

Dense, complex, and structured by intricate principles, his work is at the same time decorative and playful, toying constantly with optic illusions and the limitations of sensory perception. For mathematicians and scientists, Escher is a mastermind. For hippies, he was the pioneer of psychedelic art. Born in Leeuwarden, in the Netherlands in 1898, Escher's early works focused on natu...

From men in bowler hats, floating in the sky, to a painting of a pipe above the caption "this is not a pipe", Rene Magritte (1898-1967) created an echo chamber of object and image, name and thing, reality and representation. Like other Surrealist works, Magritte's paintings combine a precise, mimetic technique with abnormal, alienating configurations which defy the laws of scale, logic, and science: a comb the size of a wardrobe, rocks that float in the sky, clouds that drift through an open door. The result is a direct yet disorientating ...

Truffaut was born in Paris. After a troubled childhood, he left school at the age of 14. Through his passion for film, he met Andre Bazin, Founder and Co-editor of the influential journal Cahiers du Cinema, for which Truffaut be...

Gershwin's music was going to occupy a special place in my life from the moment two kinds of home entertainment became linked in my boyhood: home movies, and the 78rpm record. Two days before Queen Elizabeth's coronation in 1953, my father unveiled a 9.5mm movie projector he had bought, with a selection of silent films in metal cans. Having teased the projector lens into focus, the clattering of film through sprocket-wheels became integral to the entertainment.

Nielson emerges as an energetic, well-rounded individual, one who was much more dynamic than suggested by his popular image of the country boy rising from poverty to become Denmark's most influential composer. His musical style advanced beyond the comprehension of his contemporarie...

Her photographs of interior and exterior, urban and natural environments capture fleeting moments as if glimpsed out of the corner of one's eye, where we become aware of the beauty of everyday light, space, texture and luminous surfaces. Working in broad series, each body of work explores different details of our surroundings, such as the corner of a room (Ground #38, 1994),...

Art and Photography is the first book of its kind to survey the major presence of photography at the centre of artistic practice from the 1960s onwards. On its invention, the photograph was considered a purely mechanical, an artless object that could not be included in the fine arts. Despite its increasing use by the twentieth century's most significant artists, only since the late 1960s have art museums gradually begun to exhibit and acquire the photograph as an artwork. Today photography is the pre-eminent artistic medium for contemporar...

Jujol nevertheless felt bound all his life to his parents' native countryside, and his - strongly emotional - relationship with their home region was to...

When urban populations rise dramatically, and the quality of life declines, the role of certain creative architects becomes central in defining the future of the built environment.

New Retail examines this phenomenon with an overview of 25 of the most innovative retail spaces built around the world in recent years, designed by such renowned architec...

A 'design classic' is an industrially manufactured object with timeless aesthetic value. It serves as a standard of its kind and, despite the year in which it was designed, is still up to date. The collection presented in these three volumes has been put together by a group of experts following the above criteria. The objects are presented chronologically, beginning with an elegant pair of Chinese bonsai scissors from the early 1800s, still in production today, and ending with Jasper Morrison's recent 'brunch set', which is destined to bec...

Tokujin Yoshioka came to furniture design through art and fashion. A set designer and creator of installations, he began collaborating with Driade in 2002 with his intense experiments in the application of unusual, lightweight materials such as paper to the furniture design repertoire. Reinterpreting thousand year-old Japanese crafts in an unusual iconographic and functional manner, he brought oriental accents to the field of international design, and a fresh approach to its technological and industrial potential. The results revealed the ...

Children's bedrooms constitute the space where the smallest members of the family grow up and where different phases of their development unfold, a place where they play, learn, sleep and dream. The setting should be attractive and inviting, with a design corresponding to the age of the child. In fact, every age range is marked by special needs, so the layout of a child's bedroom should be carefully thought out from the start. For example, newborn babies are happiest in a crib or a pram but soon, as their mobility increases, they will need...

It is an attempt to examine the idea of the 'minimum', which can be seen as the pursuit of simplicity, as a way of thinking; exploring the possibilities that it offers for working creatively.

The world of contemporary design is in flux, with no single direction or philosophy enjoying a clear ascendancy. Mass-producible universal designs, consumer objects with a degree of personal customization and limited edition "Design-Art" pieces all jostle for notice in a media-driven world that feeds on novelty rather than on substance. With this new publication we have set out to counter the pervasive malaise in mainstream design by featuring those practitioners who are true pioneers in their fields. All of them produce work that makes a ...

In recent years commercial buildings have begun to look the same all around the world. Japan's are no exception. Made of glass, steel, and concrete, office towers, shopping complexes, and hotels in Tokyo bear a striking resemblance to their counterparts in Houston, Shanghai, and London. Houses, however, remain particular to place. Unique microcosms molded by local customs and social mores, the houses of one country are still distinct from those of another. They are stubbornly rooted in their own indigenous context. (From the publisher)...

Pond's initially daring, tentative experiments from the 1940s were overshadowed by the way in which technology subsequently took over the pages of domus, and in fields previously shunned by architectural magazines. One such field was transportation, and the magazine featured airport terminals and railway stations, metropolitan transport systems, magnetic levitation trains, caravans and tour buses, helicopters and gliders. Metal structures dominated building technology. They were used principally in modular school buildings and pavilions, c...

"Himmelblau" (sky blue) is not a colour but a state. And "Coop" means that this state always occurs in groups. "Coop Himmelb(l)au" is a state of exeption of the mind that has lasted for 40 years. It is an attempt to pull the ground out from underneath you so that your head will pass through the clouds. If a wall is in the way and a hollow sound echoes on impact, Coop Himmelb(l)au always believes it is the wall's fault. That is why it designs its buildings like oversized sound boxes, with dancing silhouettes and collapsing lines that are al...

The idea of the "tree of life" has run through religion, philosophy, and mythology since the earliest times, from ancient Egypt to China and pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. With its roots in the earth and branches in the sky, the tree is the model of Gothic architecture. Without trees in the forest there would be no columns, and perhaps no temples. Halfway between heaven and earth, the tree has always been impressive for its size, strength, and longevity; a place to dream and a place to find refuge. From vertiginous heights, a man in a tree cou...

In short it is a group experience based on interactio...

Women with exaggerated bosoms, small-waisted, long-legged, with a healthy round ass. A fantasy woman, unless you are the actress Anita Ekberg, Veronica Lake, or the adult model Candy Samples. They were dressed, or sometimes partially dressed, to please his imagination. His imagination matched the imagination of the American male for 50 years.

In third century AD, he prohibited his soldiers from marrying so they would be free from romantic entanglements and, therefore, more willing to fight Rome's bloody wars. As legend goes, Valentine's Day began as a pagan feast of the flesh in honor of Juno Februata, goddess of feverish love, and became a day of defiance when a rebellious Gnostic priest named ...

Modernist aesthetics in architecture, art and product design are familiar to many of the creatively inclined. In soaring glass structures or minimalist canvases we recognize a time of vast technological advance which affirmed the power of human beings to reshape their environment and to break, radically, from the conventions or constraints of the past. Less well-known, but no less fascinating, is the distillation of Modernism in logo design. With the creation of clean visual concepts, graphic designers sought to move away from the mystique...
