Jozsef Rippl Ronai: 112 Masterpieces By Maria Tsaneva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
József Rippl-Rónai (1861 – 1927) was a Hungarian painter who first introduced modern artistic movements in the Hungarian art. In 1888 he met the members of Les Nabis and under... More > their influence he painted his first important work, The Inn at Pont-Aven, a deeply felt work notable for its dark atmosphere. His painting My Grandmother was exhibited in the Salon du Champ-de-Mars in 1894. It was this picture that aroused the interest of the Nabis group (Bonnard, Denis, Vuillard) and of the group of young artists gathered around the magazine "Revue Blanche", who invited Rippl-Rónai to join their company. In 1890 he left Paris and returned to Hungary, setting in his home town, Kaposvár. Initially, he painted intimate interiors here then developed his characteristic "corn kernels" style, using bright colors and small brush-strokes which left the tiny patches of paint distinct.He became involved in the applied arts, too, designing glass windows, furniture, chinaware, glasses and goblins.< Less

Anders Zorn: 124 Paintings By Arron Adams
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Anders Leonard Zorn (1860 –1920) was Sweden artist who obtained international success as a painter, sculptor and printmaker in etching. His fame abroad is founded mostly on his portraiture... More > where he had the ability to capture the character and the personality of the depicted person. But also his graphic work, where he is among the most talented of all times, is well-known. Known as the "Swedish Impressionist", the painter Anders Zorn is best known for his alfresco nudes. These female figures were mainly depicted outdoors, using the plein air painting technique, often by the sea and in natural light. He strove to reflect a synthesis between nature and the human body manipulating paint onto canvas with rapid brush-strokes. His works were particularly popular in America at the time of his death, his prints sometimes selling for more than those of his mentor Rembrandt. Paintings by Anders Zorn can now be seen in several of the best art museums around the world.< Less

Half their number were saddled with the additional encumberment of a plastic card hung around the neck on a thin, silvery chain-link lanyard spelling out the label ‘STUTTERER’ in glossy... More > raised gold capitals. Not, ironically this violet eyed specimen, despite having developed a most debilitating nervous stammer even before beginning her tenure in this place. They were berated for the tiniest slip, while she would simply be told to take her time, to avoid long words and those she knew she couldn’t’ pronounce. Her stammer would be met with a condescending smile and the patient, resigned advice to try again avoiding this word or that or to find a shorter, simpler term – it was an insidious process she worried was making her worse not better. A member of that subgroup marked out by one of those placards balanced across the bustline of her gymslip would receive a stroke or two of the cane, strap or tawse across an outstretched palm for something as innocuous as a repeated word or simple stumble.< Less
Van Gogh: 100 Watercolors By Maria Tsaneva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
This Art Book with Foreword and annotated reproductions by Maria Tsaneva contains 100 selected drawings of Vincent van Gogh. Vincent van Gogh produced nearly 150 watercolors paintings during his... More > life. Similar to his drawings, he often did watercolors as studies before doing an oil painting or as practice. As he continued to refine his technique, he used more and brighter colors in his watercolors. In the letter to his brother Theo, in December of 1888 Van Gogh wrote the following: "...They are not masterpieces, of course, yet I really believe that there is some soundness and truth in them, more at any rate than what I've done up to now...They may still be full of imperfections, however, that they must get fresher and brighter still, but one can't do everything one wants just like that. It will come little by little." Though often they are far away from his bold brush strokes, the Van Gogh's watercolors are a unique in their use of clear and vibrant colors.< Less

More > October 1892) was Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland during much of Queen Victoria's reign and remains one of the most popular British poets.Tennyson excelled at penning short lyrics, such as "Break, Break, Break", "The Charge of the Light Brigade", "Tears, Idle Tears" and "Crossing the Bar". Much of his verse was based on classical mythological themes, such as Ulysses, although In Memoriam A.H.H. was written to commemorate his friend Arthur Hallam, a fellow poet and student at Trinity College, Cambridge, after he died of a stroke aged just 22. Tennyson also wrote some notable blank verse including Idylls of the King, "Ulysses", and "Tithonus". During his career, Tennyson attempted drama, but his plays enjoyed little success.

LEGACY is an extended elegy for the poet William Meredith, written by Meredith's partner of 36 years, Richard Harteis, after Meredith’s death in the spring of 2007. This group of poems is... More > spoken out of the silence of a great personal loss and a great literary loss. When Meredith, former U.S. Poet Laureate suffered a stroke, Richard - a health professional and writer - restored William through the courageous bond that compels poets to write. LEGACY sustains the author, and any of us who has experienced such pain. During the course of their days, William Meredith and Richard Harteis lived a dazzling poetry-making life in dual activities -- a luxury of mutual contemplation. Now, one is gone, and the other pilots his loss through the unanswerable questions showing why we love and why we write. These poems are how a poet speaks, transforming stillness into animation. Each poem leads to another poem, inviting the reader into the reward of trust and love. Grace Cavalieri< Less
Henri-Edmond Cross: 121 Paintings and Watercolors By Maria Tsaneva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Henri-Edmond Cross was a French painter and print maker, most applauded as a master of Neo-Impressionism who played an important role in shaping the second phase of that movement. His early paintings... More > are typically Pointillist, with closely and regularly positioned tiny dots of color. Later, he gradually shifted his technique, instead using broad, blocky brushstrokes and leaving small areas of exposed naked canvas between the strokes. The resulting surfaces of the paintings resembled mosaics, and the works may be seen as precursors to Fauvism and Cubism. Cross stated that the Neo-Impressionists were "far more interested in creating harmonies of pure color, than in harmonizing the colors of a particular landscape." Henri Matisse and other artists were very influenced by the late-career Cross, and such works were instrumental in forming the principles of Fauvism. Among the other artists influenced by Cross were André Derain, Henri Manguin, Charles Camoin, Jean Puy and Louis Valtat.< Less
VEGESIGNES English By Laval Chabon
eBook (ePub): $9.53
The fusion between the hearing and the picture. According to audio waves and their curves logics shown by an oscilloscope, all letters, characters and numbers should be written openly because that... More > they represent auditive sounds and should be drawn alike. Take important note that the sound wave cannot go back to it's starting point. Otherwise, our eyes would be trapped, and we would be caught. There should be only one line pen writeable by character, with no cutting strokes, and no detached accents. Under-based "t" is submitted and understood, because that the most silent structure is down; it is the ground horizontally under our feet. All dots and diaresis should be stucked. All characters should be drawned unlocked. They should be no drawings for the eyes. Yes. If the images are worth one thousand words, they are not quite very wise and they are showing us one good thousand troubles. From now, they include 65 languages wide. I'm telling myself this: just take it easy.< Less
