More > 19th-century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U. S. Cavalry.His style was naturalistic, sometimes impressionistic, and usually veered away from the ethnographic realism of earlier Western artists such as George Catlin. His focus was firmly on the people and animals of the West, with landscape usually of secondary importance, unlike the members and descendants of the Hudson River School, such as Frederic Edwin Church, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Moran, who glorified the vastness of the West and the dominance of nature over man. The galloping horse became Remington’s signature subject, copied and interpreted by many Western artists who followed him. He was an effective publicist and promoter of his art.< Less
Anders Zorn: Paintings By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Anders Zorn was one of Sweden’s foremost artists who obtained international success as a painter, sculptor and printmaker in etching. His fame abroad is founded mostly on his portraiture where... More > he had the ability to capture the character and the personality of the depicted person. His incisive ability to depict the individual character of his model is, for example, apparent in portraits of prominent cultural personalities. The model's surroundings were important; Zorn believed that a portrait should be painted in an environment that was natural for the model. An artificial studio environment was not to his taste. Beginning in 1910, Zorn focused on developing his control of the technique and motif. He accomplished this with such certainty that the process of painting can assume the dominant role, sometimes to the detriment of the work's emotional expression.< Less
Frederic Leighton: Paintings By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Lord Frederic Leighton was one of the most famous British artists of the nineteenth century. He preferred to paint subject matter that was connected to ancient Greek and Roman mythology and intended... More > for his paintings to be visually beautiful. Leighton's paintings have a reputation for bright colors and firmly drawn figures. Leighton's contemporaries included the French Impressionist painters and he would have seen the work of Monet, Renoir and others in both Paris and London. Leighton said of the Impressionists that 'Impressionism is a reaction from the old conventionalism, but an impressionist must not forget that it is the deep-sinking and not the fugitive impressions which are the best'. Leighton's role at the Royal Academy included the education of younger artists. His great ability for this is summed up in the words of one of his pupils; the sculptor Hamo Thornycroft wrote, 'he was the most energetic and took the greatest pains to help the students. He was, moreover, an inspiring master'.< Less
Auguste Rodin: Sculptures By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Auguste Rodin was a French sculptor, usually considered the progenitor of modern sculpture. But actually Rodin did not set out to revolutionary against the past. He was educated traditionally and... More > desired academic respect, although he was never accepted into Paris's leading school of art. Many of his most notable sculptures were severely 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. It was the freedom and creativity with which Rodin used these practices – along with his activation surfaces of sculptures through traces of his own touch and with his more open attitude toward bodily pose, sensuality, and non-realistic surface – that marked Rodin's re-making of traditional 19th century sculptural techniques into the prototype for modern sculpture.< Less

More > Renaissaince, Leonardo da Vinci. There are sections covering the great man's thoughts on life, art and science. Maurice Baring trawled the available manuscripts to distil da Vinci's writings on these subjects into a single, accessible tome, which will be of interest to students of da Vinci, the Renaissance and the history of both art and science. Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (1452–1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer.

The Art of Auguste Rodin: Illustrated By C. R. Mobet
eBook (ePub): $3.99
François-Auguste-René Rodin (1840–1917), known as Auguste Rodin, was a French sculptor. Although Rodin is generally considered the progenitor of modern sculpture, he did not set... More > out to rebel against the past. He was schooled traditionally, took a craftsman-like approach to his work, and desired academic recognition, although he was never accepted into Paris's foremost school of art. He is considered to be the founder of Impressionist style in the art of the sculpture. 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.< Less
No Water No Moon By Derek Lee
Paperback: $9.12

There is an interesting parallel between the reductive process of writing certain kinds of modern poetry and the approach taken by the sculptor, Alberto Giacometti, to his work. Giacometti reduced... More > the form of his human subject to an absolute minimum, whilst somehow managing to maximise its existential reality; perhaps as a result of the increased isolation in the expanded, surrounding, three-dimensional void. It is almost as if the otherwise voluminous, fleshy, sculptural form had been shrunk and reduced to the elongated, yet intense, state of a skeletal armature; but not one lacking human qualities, even though some of the final forms were not unlike stalagmites. If it is possible to do the same with written work, then perhaps such an approach can be adopted to bring about a similar kind of appreciation of what it means to be human and ultimately the significance of No Water No Moon.< Less

More > architect, mystic, writer and (often overlooked) teacher. The Diaries of Leonardo Da Vinci give us a look into the complex mind of this genius and also provide us with a sampling of the same education that Da Vinci provided to his students.
