John Constable: Drawings By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
John Constable was English artist, positioned with Turner as one of the greatest British landscape painters. His most excellent paintings are of the places Constable knew, mainly Suffolk and... More > Hampstead, where he lived. He worked broadly in the open air, drawing and sketching, but his finished pictures were produced in the studio. Often completing primary sketches previous to beginning a canvas, Constable would draw and try to capture a moment in occasion, testing the composition first in sketches in a grid formation so that they could be accurately scaled up when the artist started to work on larger paintings later. In England Constable had no real successor and the many imitators (including his son Lionel) turned rather to the formal compositions than to the more direct sketches. In France, on the other hand, he was a major influence on Romantic artists such as Delacroix, on the painters of the Barbizon School, and on the Impressionists.< Less

More > middle-class samurai. His extended family provided vital support as well as many valiant priests that played a pivotal role in Nichiren’s sangha.

Irrationalistic Islam is susceptive to the world By DF Hansson
Paperback: $20.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
the Koran represents the uncorrupted word of God, “constant, immaculate, unalterable and inimitable.” It was transmitted to man through Muhammad, a prosperous Meccan merchant who received... More > it via the angel Gabriel as a series of verse revelations between 610 and his death in 632. Uneducated and illiterate, Muhammad committed these revelations to memory before reciting them to his followers, who memorized them verbatim in turn. The killing of hundreds of these “memorizers” in the battle of Yamama in 633 alerted his successor as Muslim leader, the first caliph, Abu Bakr, to the danger that the revelations could be lost. He therefore gathered all available sources into a loose compilation called the suhuf which was then used by the third caliph, Uthman, to produce in the mid-650s a standardized text of the Koran. Copies were sent to Islamic communities with orders that all other versions be destroyed. Muslims believe this Uthmanic recension is the Koran as we have it today.< Less
