Edward Burne-Jones (Hardcover): Alison Smith Edward Burne-Jones (Hardcover)
Alison Smith
R963 R730 Discovery Miles 7 300 Save R233 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Edward Burne-Jones is widely regarded as one of the great British artists, and the only Pre-Raphaelite to achieve world-wide recognition through the elusive mythic language he developed across a range of media. Accompanying a major exhibition of Burne-Jones's work at Tate Britain, this beautifully-designed book looks at what was distinctive about Burne-Jones's art, and charts the course through which he emerged from being an outsider, to being revered as one of the great artists of the European fin de siecle. It shows how he maintained his vision through meticulous attention to craftsmanship and the repetition of key motifs. It examines the extraordinary combination of flattening and illusionistic effects in Burne-Jones's work, the artist's preoccupation with romance and horror, and the emphasis he placed on the potential of physical and symbolic objects within an image to simultaneously unlock and obfuscate meaning. Illustrated works show how Burne-Jones's highly subjective approach to storytelling resulted in a paradoxical combination of seriality and stasis, making the image unsettling in narrative and emotional terms. The essentially hermetic aspect of Burne-Jones' art will be used to foreground the challenge it presented to contemporary social and cultural values both within Britain and beyond. Large scale works made famous through public exhibition will foreground the impact Burne- Jones made on the continent, influencing the direction of pan-European Symbolism. Three essays examine Burne-Jones as an intellectual (his influences), as an artist (his techniques), and his legacy. Six section introductions, following the structure of the exbition, look at in turn The Making of an Artist, Draughtmanship and Design, Burne-Jones' Public Exhibitions, Portraiture, Series Paintings, Art for the People. With contributions by Elizabeth Prettejohn, Jason Rosenfeld, Colin Cruise, Charlotte Gere and Suzanne Fagence Cooper.

Jacques Rivette (Hardcover): Douglas Morrey, Alison Smith Jacques Rivette (Hardcover)
Douglas Morrey, Alison Smith; Series edited by Diana Holmes, Robert Ingram
R1,708 Discovery Miles 17 080 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Jacques Rivette is perhaps the best-kept secret of French cinema. A founding figure in the New Wave, with immense influence within the Cahiers du cinema team at its centre, he developed into one of the most unusual and adventurous French directors of the last sixty years, yet his work remains little-known in comparison with his contemporaries, and this study is the first in English to look at the full span of his career. Starting with his decisively influential film criticism of the 1950s, it moves from the New Wave through the complex, experimental films of the 1970s to the challenging, playful dramas which ensured his visibility during the following two decades, and ends in the present, including Rivette's most recent films, Histoire de Marie et Julien (2003) and Ne touchez pas la hache (2007). The book takes a thematic approach, offering detailed discussion of key elements of Rivette's film world, including games, conspiracy and jealousy, as well as a study of what Rivette's cinema adds to our understanding of key theoretical concepts in Film Studies such as narrative, space and adaptation. There are many close analyses of sequences from Rivette's films including Paris nous appartient (1961), Celine et Julie vont en bateau (1974) and La Belle Noiseuse (1991). This book will be of interest to all students of French cinema.

R975 R742 Discovery Miles 7 420 Save R233 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Over the past thirty years, our ideas about the cultures of Empire have been transformed. Contemporary reflections on Empire by writers and artists are widely published and displayed, and museums have witnessed a growing number of exhibitions devoted to aspects of the rich and varied visual culture that emerged in places under British governance, from the Americas to India and Australasia. And yet, since the vast Imperial exhibitions of the early twentieth-century there has been no wide-ranging presentation of the objects made across the British Empire. This publication, which accompanies a major Tate Britain exhibition, fills that gap. Through broad groupings within thematic chapters - Mapping, Collecting, History, Portraiture, Cultural Exchange and the Return of Empire - leading scholars focus on how particular objects tell the history of life under British rule. Paintings by well-known artists such as John Singer Sargent and Sidney Nolan are illustrated alongside Benin bronze heads and Mughal miniatures in a survey that ranges from sixteenth century colonialism through to the projection of Britain's imperial might in the late nineteenth century to its decline in the post-war era. Exploring how artists have represented and critiqued the diverse places, people and events that make up the legacy of Empire, our expert authors have created a vital book on a subject of broad contemporary interest.
