The Man in the Iron Mask By Alexandre Dumas
eBook (ePub): $1.99
The first surviving records of the masked prisoner are from late July 1669, when Louis XIV's minister the Marquis de Louvois sent a letter to Bénigne Dauvergne de Saint-Mars, governor of the... More > prison of Pignerol, then part of France. In his letter, Louvois informed Saint-Mars that a prisoner named Eustache Dauger was due to arrive in the next month or so. Louvois instructed Saint-Mars to prepare a cell with multiple doors, one closing upon the other, which were to prevent anyone from the outside listening in. Saint-Mars himself was to see Dauger only once a day in order to provide food and whatever else he needed. Dauger was also to be told that if he spoke of anything other than his immediate needs he would be killed, but, according to Louvois, the prisoner should not require much since he was "only a valet".< Less

John Constable: 120 Paintings and Drawings By Maria Tsaneva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
This Art Book with Foreword and annotated reproductions by Maria Tsaneva contains 120 selected drawings and paintings of John Constable. John Constable rejected the formal or "picturesque"... More > rendering of nature; instead, he tried to capture informally the effects of changing light and the patterns of clouds moving across the country sky. He loved the countryside, and his best work was of outdoor scenes in his native Suffolk and his London home in Hampstead. He worked in the open air, though he returned to his studio to finish his paintings. Often completing primary sketches prior to starting a large canvas, in England Constable had no real successor and the many imitators turned rather to the formal compositions than to the more direct sketches. In France, however, he was a major influence on Romantic painters such as Delacroix, on the members of the Barbizon School, and ultimately on the Impressionists.< Less

Earlier 20th-century realist American art is experiencing a renaissance. DuMond, a rich personality with a compelling life story, painted many images that deserve to be better known.
