  • Master and Commander 45,00 zł

    • ISBN: 9780007160853
    • Autor: O'Brian Patrick    

    Rok wydania: 2003-10-06

    Tie-in edition to the major film coming next Spring from Fox. Starring Russell Crowe as Jack Aubrey and Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind) as Stephen Maturin. Directed by Peter Weir. Master and Commander is the first of Patrick O'Brian's now famous Aubrey/Maturin novels, regarded by many as the greatest series of historical novels ever written. It establishes the friendship between Captain Jack Aubrey RN and Stephen Maturin, who becomes his secretive ship's surgeon and an intelligence agent. It contains all the action and excitement which could possibly be hoped for in a historical novel, but it also displays the qualities which have put O'Brian far ahead of any of his competitors: his depiction of the detail of life aboard a Nelsonic man-of-war, of weapons, food, conversation and ambience, of the landscape and of the sea. O'Brian's portrayal of each of these is faultless and the sense of period throughout is acute. His power of characterisation is above all masterly. This brilliant historical novel marked the debut of a writer who grew into one of our greatest novelists ever.

    Published in collaboration with the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation, "The Treasures of Salvador Dali" offers one of the most up-to-date and intriguing views of the life and works of one of the world's most famous artists of the 20th century. Augmented by the inclusion of facsimiles of over 30 documents from the archives of the Foundation, this beautiful book takes the reader through the life of one of the leading lights of the Surrealist movement. From his first forays into the world of art to his visits to Paris and meetings with Picasso and the Surrealists, Dali broke boundaries like few others, and themed chapters look at his fascination with other artists and writers, his collaborations with such giants as the film-makers Luis Bunuel, Alfred Hitchcock and Walt Disney as well as his adherence to and then expulsion from the Surrealist movement. Containing some rarely and previously unpublished works, "The Treasures of Dali" culminates in an examination of the legacy that Dali has left behind and how successive artists have been influenced by him.

  • We Are One 149,00 zł

    Our cry should be listened to by the whole worldA" - Mathambo Sesana, (San) Bushman, Botswana From the frozen taiga of Siberia to the rainforest of the Amazon and the bushland of Botswana, We Are One celebrates the extraordinary diversity of tribal peoples - their cultures, values and beliefs - and the fragile, wild beauty of the homelands to which many are still so intimately connected. This book aims to create a sense of solidarity with tribal peoples, promoting the message that they are equal to us: just as modern, just as much part of the 21st century and with just as much right to live in peace. We Are One creates a greater sense of wonder and respect for the world's tribes and their natural environments, and will emphasise the importance of what they have to teach us in terms of the many humanitarian and environmental issues inherent in their - and our - survival. We Are One is an international collaboration between tribal people, philosophers, journalists, academics, anthropologists, environmentalists and photojournalists, all brought together in support of indigenous tribes. Contributions will cover the myriad diverse themes inherent in tribal cultures, touching upon topics such as cultural diversity, tribal languages, the eco-systems of rainforests, tribal botanical knowledge, the art and wisdom of shamans, the instinctive tribal principles of balance and sustainability, the reverence for and guardianship of Mother Earth, the traditional values of reciprocity, community spirit and collective thinking and the richly colourful festivals, ceremonies and ancestral rituals. Written contributions include Noam Chomsky, Claude Levi-Strauss, Bruce Parry, Satish Kumar, Wade Davis, Robin Hanbury-Tenison and Richard Gere, to name but a few. Likewise, a large number of award-winning photographers have agreed to allow their work to be reproduced in this book, including Sebastiao Salgado, Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Steve McCurry. We Are One is both a celebration of the fragile beauty of the world's remaining tribes, and a powerful call to arms. All royalties go to Survival International to help fund their campaigning for the rights of tribal peoples worldwide

    Intimate, humorous, and refreshingly candid, this extraordinary work is a remarkable record - in both words and images - of Jewish life in a Polish town before World War II as seen through the eyes of an inquisitive boy. Mayer Kirshenblatt, who was born in 1916 and left Poland for Canada in 1934, taught himself to paint at age 73. Since then, he has made it his mission to remember the world of his childhood in living color, 'lest future generations know more about how Jews died than how they lived'. This volume presents his lively paintings woven together with a marvelous narrative created from interviews that took place over forty years between Mayer and his daughter, Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett. Together, father and daughter draw readers into a lost world - we roam the streets and courtyards of the town of Apt, witness details of daily life, and meet those who lived and worked there: the pregnant hunchback, who stood under the wedding canopy just hours before giving birth; the khayder teacher caught in bed with the drummer's wife; the cobbler's son, who was dressed in white pajamas all his life to fool the angel of death; the corpse that was shaved; and the couple who held a 'black wedding' in the cemetery during a cholera epidemic. This moving collaboration - a unique blend of memoir, oral history, and artistic interpretation - is at once a labor of love, a tribute to a distinctive imagination, and a brilliant portrait of life in one Jewish home town.

    This important, groundbreaking publication contains the illustrated letters between two great modern artists–Vincent van Gogh and Émile Bernard. The original letters were previously in private hands and have not been seen for approximately seventy years. Here they are published in association with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and an exhibit at The Morgan Library & Museum in New York. In addition to the letters, the book also includes paintings, photographs, and drawings by both artists, as well as works by artists of the period, such as Paul Gauguin and Jean-François Millet. These letters, written between 1887 and 1889, are among the most important and relevant sources of insight into van Gogh’s life and art. They bridge the time when van Gogh was living and working in Paris, where he painted most of his self-portraits (mainly because he was unable to afford models), to the small town of Arles, in Provence. Here he adopted new types of compositions and developed new ideas about color–all of which he describes in detail in letters to his friend and fellow painter Bernard. Only a year later, in July 1890, van Gogh died, at the age of thirty-seven. The authors have carefully placed each letter in context of relevant events and have written authoritative commentaries on the content of the letters.

    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 contemporary artists.

    Survey David Campany provides a comprehensive historical overview of photography's place in twentieth-century art history.

    Works provides an extensive colour plate and duotone image section with extended captions for every artwork. Divided thematically, each chapter explores a different aspect of photography in twentieth-century culture, examining the diverse ways in which artists have explored and pushed boundaries.

    Among more than 190 examples of the most significant photographic projects by artists are works by John Baldessari, Lewis Baltz, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Christian Boltanski, Chris Burden, Victor Burgin, Sophie Calle, Elinor Carucci, Chuck Close, James Coleman, John Coplans, Gregory Crewdson, Philip Lorca DiCorcia, William Eggleston, Joan Fontcuberta, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, John Hilliard, Candida Höfer, Roni Horn, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Richard Long, Robert Mapplethorpe, Annette Messager, Joel Meyerowitz, Duane Michals, Boris Mikhailov, Richard Misrach, Gabriel Orozco, Giuseppe Penone, Richard Prince, Gerhard Richter, Martha Rosler, Georges Rousse, Thomas Ruff, Ed Ruscha, Lucas Samaras, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman, Stephen Shore, Katharina Sieverding, Lorna Simpson, Thomas Struth, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Larry Sultan, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jeff Wall, Andy Warhol, Gillian Wearing, Boyd Webb, Carrie Mae Weems, William Wegman and Francesca Woodman.

    Documents contextualises the Works with original artists' statements and interviews, often reproduced in book form for the first time, plus writings on art and photography by leading critics, writers and theorists of the late twentieth century.
