The purpose of the book is to help the student to draw animals as he or she sees them.

Alexander Calder, the renowned sculptor and inventor of mobiles, here brings his characteristic simplicity of line and spirit of movement to the art of animal sketching. The purpose of the book is to help the student to draw animals as he or she sees them. Noting and practicing the way Mr. Calder captures the emotions and attitudes of animals in a few quick lines, the student can quickly obtain a lasting groundwork in animal sketching that will before long become second nature.These full-body sketches and enlarged details, in rapid, expressive brush-and-ink, of animals from the farm, the zoo, wildlife, and the home, in characteristic poses and movements, reveal both the action and portrait aspects of the art. There are 12 sketches of horses in action (drawing wagon or plough, racing, etc.); 10 drawings of cats, luxuriously asleep or alertly watchful, stretching or crouching; 14 drawings of dogs (many different breeds) in a variety of poses ― lying down, sleeping, sitting, running, sniffing the air, feeding puppies; 11 drawings of lions and other big cats, pacing, lying down, or crouching; 7 sketches of monkeys, jumping and gesticulating; 23 drawings of deer, stooping, sitting, running, etc.; 27 drawings of birds of many different species ― owls sitting, ducks waddling, etc.; and 18 sketches of cows grazing, sitting, swishing tails, and feeding calves. Also included are drawings of seals, elephants, squirrels, kangaroos, and a bear.Because of the simplicity of Mr. Calder's approach to sketching, this book can easily be used by even the youngest of students. There are no difficult techniques to master here, no roundabout methods of construction, but just an insistence on drawing things as the student sees them, with undogmatic (and delightful) assistance from an undisputed master of the simple expressive line. It is unlikely that there is any more pleasant way to study such a fundamental branch of pictorial art.Unabridged and unaltered republication of third (1929) edition. [less]

Apology for a Murder

ISBN 13: 9781843910794    ISBN 10: 1843910799

In 1537, Alessandro de’ Medici, Duke of Florence, was brutally stabbed by his cousin Lorenzino. Here, for the first time in English, we can examine the murderer’s own defense of his actions in this jewel of Renaissance rhetoric. In this compelling diatribe, Lorenzino de’ Medici presents himself as worthy of comparison with some of the greatest heroes of classical Greece and Rome, purely motivated by love of liberty. His account, however, is generally assumed to be false, and Lorenzino’s [...]

In 1537, Alessandro de’ Medici, Duke of Florence, was brutally stabbed by his cousin Lorenzino. Here, for the first time in English, we can examine the murderer’s own defense of his actions in this jewel of Renaissance rhetoric. In this compelling diatribe, Lorenzino de’ Medici presents himself as worthy of comparison with some of the greatest heroes of classical Greece and Rome, purely motivated by love of liberty. His account, however, is generally assumed to be false, and Lorenzino’s reputation is that of a brutal, amoral thug, the antihero of Alfred de Musset’s drama Lorenzaccio. When the Medici regime was reinstated the same year as Alessandro’s murder, Lorenzino’s own assassination was ordered; here, dramatically paired with the Apology, is the fascinating account of Francesco Bibbone, Lorenzino’s own murderer. Florentine nobleman and dramatist Lorenzino de’ Medici is one of the most notorious figures of Renaissance Italy. [less]

In this book, Suzanne Preston Blier examines the intersection of art, risk, and creativity in early African arts from the Yoruba center of Ife and the striking ways that ancient Ife artworks inform society, politics, history, and religion. Yoruba art offers a unique lens into one of Africa's most important and least understood early civilizations, one whose historic arts have long been of interest to local residents and Westerners alike because of their tour-de-force visual power and technical complexity. Among the complementary subjects explored are questions of art making, art viewing, and aesthetics in the famed ancient Nigerian city-state, as well as the attendant risks and danger assumed by artists, patrons, and viewers alike in certain forms of subject matter and modes of portrayal, including unique genres of body marking, portraiture, animal symbolism, and regalia. This volume celebrates art, history, and the shared passion and skill with which the remarkable artists of early Ife sought to define their past for generations of viewers. [less]

The production and appreciation of art involves thought processes that have excluded from traditional measures of human intelligence. This book, written by a leading cognitive scientist, makes a compelling case for broadening these definitions and discusses the value other cultures place on artistic abilities. Gardner explores the function of art in human development as well as the strategies children employ in the process of constructing images.

Approaches to the history of art are probably more varied and more debated than in any other branch of history, and a study of different historical approaches has become an increasingly important component of many student courses. This critical anthology brings together the work of 27 influential art historians and writers from the Renaissance to the present day; key texts have been chosen in which the authors reflect on the nature of their subject and on their own methods of inquiry. Included are texts by Vasari, Winckelmann, Burckhardt, Wolfflin, Panofsky, Gombrich and Pollock, among others. The introduction is a lucid and readable summary of art-historical methods, and each of the texts is accompanied by a commentary that places it in context and discusses the issues it raises. A glossary of terms and a select bibliography make this book an invaluable resource in the study of art history. [less]
