More > his model is famous. The model's surroundings were important; Zorn believed that a portrait should be painted in an environment that was natural for the model.

Henry Moore (1898 –1986) is considered one of the seminal sculptors of the 20th Century, whose bronzes, often monumental, are located around the world as public works of art. During the year... More > when he turned eighty, Henry Moore and Orde, who was working on a portfolio of graphics by Moore, were discussing his graphics spread out in the sitting room at Much Hadham and a conversation developed. During this conversation Moore freely explored questions put to him about his art, what is graphic art, about themes in his work, about reality, about the influence of novels on his life, about originality in art, about what he thinks at the beginning of the day, about living in one’s own period, about the meaning of art and much more.< Less
Auguste Rodin: 255 Plates By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Sketcher, painter, engraver, sculptor and collector, Auguste Rodin is recognized worldwide for the exceptional authenticity of his anatomical sculptures. He strongly influenced twentieth century... More > sculpture by his assemblage techniques and prepared the way for symbolism by adopting literary and mythological themes. Although he is generally considered the progenitor of modern sculpture, Rodin did not set out to rebel against the past. Sculpturally, Rodin possessed a unique ability to model a complex, turbulent, deeply pocketed surface in clay. Many of his most notable sculptures were roundly criticized during his lifetime. They clashed with the predominant figure sculpture tradition, in which works were decorative, formulaic, or highly thematic. Rodin's most original work departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory, modeled the human body with realism, and celebrated individual character and physicality. Rodin was sensitive to the controversy surrounding his work, but refused to change his style.< Less

Thomas Eakins: Drawings Colour Plates By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Thomas Eakins was an American realist painter, photographer, sculptor, and fine arts educator. He is widely acknowledged to be one of the most important artists in American art history. He painted... More > several hundred portraits, usually of friends, family members, or prominent people in the arts, sciences, medicine, and clergy.

In addition, Eakins produced a number of large paintings which brought the portrait out of the drawing room and into the offices, streets, parks, rivers, arenas, and surgical amphitheaters of his city. Since his death, Eakins has been celebrated by American art historians as "the strongest, most profound realist in nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century American art".< Less
Michelangelo: 240 Colour Plates By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
A sculptor, architect, painter, and graphic artist, Michelangelo cannot be assigned definitely to any of those genres. The drawing as a medium for developing new ideas and conveying artistic... More > thoughts, however, is the connecting link to and the basis of all his creative activities. During the Renaissance, drawing was established as the basis of every genre of art. Michelangelo viewed his drawings as material he needed for his work. Contemporaries of Michelangelo collected his drawings during his lifetime and guarded them like precious gems. Presently, the total number of his existing drawings is around 600. However, during his more than seventy years of activity, he certainly produced much more, thus many works by the master must have been lost. It is well known that Michelangelo twice destroyed his own drawings: the first time was in 1517, the second time shortly before his death.< Less

Eugene-Henri-Paul Gauguin was French painter, sculptor, and printmaker. Gauguin's style developed from Impressionism through a brief cloisonnist phase (in partnership with Emile Bernard) towards a... More > highly personal brand of Symbolism, which sought within the tradition of Pierre Puvis de Chavannes to combine and contrast an idealized vision of primitive Polynesian culture with the skeptical pessimism of an educated European. A self-consciously outspoken personality and an aggressively asserted position as the leader of the Pont-Aven group made him a dominant figure in Parisian intellectual circles in the late 1880s. His use of non-naturalistic color and formal distortion for expressive ends was widely influential on early 20th-century avant-garde artists.< Less

Michael Brenner, American sculptor, confidant of Gertrude Stein and her Parisian circle, sometime American dealer for Matisse, Picasso, Juan Gris and others, publisher of Stein’s earliest... More > writing, is one of the great twentieth Century artists who fell, for uncertain reasons, through the cracks of art history. In this book his sketches suggest his sculptural goals and, perhaps, provide insight to the man himself. Joseph Brenner, chemist, writer, poet and philosopher, the son and alter ego of the artist poetically defines the problem of knowing another even when closely and patrimoniously joined. His poetry reflects his view of the world as a consequence of life’s realities. We find here that the artefacts of individuals can lead only to incomplete knowledge of a person. Yet, is it not through artefacts that we claim to know civilizations?< Less
