Miami Style


Keby Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) žil v časoch renesancie, považovali by jeho bohatý talent za niečo, čo je géniom prirodzené. Ale v našich časoch – podľa Dalího stále hlúpejších a nudnejších neustále provokoval. Dnes sa radí spolu s Picassom, Matissom, Duchampom a Malevičom k novodobým velikánom a široká verejnosť jeho umenie miluje. V predhovore knihy Géniov denník (Vydavateľstvo SLOVART, 2004), ktorá je akýmsi pokračovaním Tajomného života Salvadora Dalího (Vydavateľstve SLOVART 2003), hovorí spisovateľ Michel Déon: „Je lákavé myslieť si, že Dalího poznáme, pretože sa odvážil vstúpiť do ríše zverejňovania. Novinári hltajú každé jeho slovo. Ale najprekvapivejší je na ňom jeho zemitý zdravý rozum.“

Cubism


As you’ll find out in this guide to the fundamentals of cubism, there is more to the genre than its most famous proponent.

Abstract Expressionism


“Abstract expressionism” refers to the non-representational use of form and color as a means of expression that emerged in America in the 1940s, largely thanks to the innovative work of Arshile Gorky. Interestingly, abstract expressionism is considered to be the first movement originating in America to have a worldwide influence. Two very different sub-categories of the movement developed: “action painting” (exemplified notably by Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock) and “color field painting,” made most famous by Mark Rothko. Abstract expressionists strove to express pure emotion directly on canvas, via color and especially texture (the surface quality of the brushstroke), by embracing “accidents,” and celebrating painting itself as a communicative action. Artists featured: William Baziotes, Helen Frankenthaler, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, Philip Guston, Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, David Smith, Theodoros Stamos, Clyfford Still, Mark Tobey, Bradley Walter Tomlin.

Paul Verhoeven


Known for always pushing the envelope when it comes to showing sex and violence on screen, Paul Verhoeven has directed controversial films in several genres, including the erotic thriller (Basic Instinct), melodrama (Showgirls) and science fiction (RoboCop, Total Recall, Starship Troopers, Hollow Man). However, even before going to Hollywood, Verhoeven had been a succ&232&894s de scandale in his native Netherlands, where he directed a war saga (Soldier of Orange), a medieval epic (Flesh+Blood), a psychosexual thriller (The Fourth Man) and a sex comedy (Turkish Delight, which was voted Best Dutch Film of the Century at the Netherlands Film Festival). Verhoeven has shown that visceral thrills can be thought provoking, challenging our received notions of heroism, patriotism, and eroticism. He has created some of the most courageous and contentious films of recent years.

Atlas Maior of 1665


Najrozsiahlejší a najkvalitnejší atlas z obdobia baroka s názvom Atlas Maior Joana Blaeua vznikol v roku 1665 ako reakcia na iný dobový atlas vytvorený kartografom Johannesom Janssoniom, Blaeuovým rivalom. Pôvodné 11-zväzkové vydanie v latinčine obsahovalo 596 máp Európy, Afriky, Ázie, Ameriky a Antarktídy a predstavovalo najväčší a najkompletnejší atlas svojej doby a zároveň jednu z najvzácnejších kníh 17. storočia vôbec. Jej reprint pripravilo vydavateľstvo Taschen z kvalitnej kópie uloženej vo viedenskej národnej knižnici. Práve 17. storočie sa považuje za začiatok moderného sveta. Vedecké objavy radikálne zmenili postoj ľudí k svetu, ktorý ich obklopoval. Tvorba máp sa stala úspešnou obchodnou činnosťou. Ptolemaiova Geographia z roku 1475 bola jediným zdrojom geografických informácií pre študentov a cestovateľov až do 16. storočia. Neskôr síce vznikali súbory máp a malé vydania atlasov, ale rozsiahle a súborné dielo sa objavilo až v podobe knižky Atlas Maior. Úvod ku knihe, napísaný autorom Petrom van der Krogtom, čitateľovi objasní historické a kultúrne súvislosti vzniku diela. Detailné popisy k jednotlivým mapám zároveň z knihy robia neoceniteľný zdroj dobových zemepisných údajov z krajín celého sveta. Až do 30. septembra tohto roka ponúkame knihu za uvádzaciu cenu 5 990,- Sk. Ak si u nás knihu objednáte do 30. septembra, ušetríte 1 000,- Sk. Cena platná od 1. okóbra bude 6 990,- Sk.

Atlas of Human Anatomy and Surgery


Vydanie atlasu anatómie Jeana Baptistu Marca Bourgeryho je splatením dlhu voči vedcovi, ktorý venoval dlhé roky práci na tvorbe tohto monumentálneho diela. Zaradilo sa nielen k významným udalostiam v histórii medicíny, ale dodnes je jednou z najrozsiahlejších a najlepšie ilustrovaných odborných kníh, aké kedy vznikli. Bourgery začal svoju prácu v roku 1839, kedy vytvoril prvé ilustrácie k textom publikovaným ešte v roku 1831 a dielo bolo dokončené až päť rokov po jeho smrti, v roku 1854. V tom čase už na knihe pracoval maliar Nicolas Henri Jacob.The Complete Atlas of Anatomy je reprintom dobového vydania knihy a obsahuje 726 celostranových farebných ilustrácií z anatómie ľudského tela.Kniha je rozdelená do štyroch častí venovaných deskriptívnej anatómii, chirurgickej anatómii a jej technikám / pričom detailne zobrazuje takmer všetky hlavné operácie, ktoré sa v prvej polovici 19. storočia vykonávali /, všeobecnej anatómii a embryológii a mikroskopickej anatómii. Farebné ilustrácie vynikajú presnosťou a vysokou estetickou úrovňou, pričom mnohé z nich sú v životnej veľkosti. Spájajú v sebe prvky vedeckého a umeleckého prístupu a aj dnes môžu slúžiť ako zdroj informácií pre študentov, maliarov, ilustrátorov a všetkých, ktorí sa zaujímajú o výtvarné umenie a o anatómiu.

Hundertwasser 25 Taschen


"His trump card is his art, the creator of beauty: of natural harmony, peace and joy. The extra-lucid power of his analytical sensitivity makes him the perfect decoder of global culture and its guided information. He reveals the prodigious quality re sources of naturist empiricism against the abusive uniformity of rationalist totalitarianism, against the tyranny of ugliness and the iron rule of its straight line." Excerpt from: Pierre Restany, Hundertwasser, The Power of Art - The Painter-King wi th the five skins, Cologne, 1998, p. 94 Viennese-native Friedrich Stowasser (1928-2000) called himself Hundertwasser Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt. True to the colorful variety of his names, he pursued many activities as a painter, architect and ecologist, and as "one who awakens identities." This presentation of Hundertwasser's work in all of its different facets is guided by the artist's own view of himself and his purpose. And, because his work is virtually inseparable from his personal l ife and political activity, a vivid portrait of the artist takes shape before the reader's eyes. Excerpts from conversations between the author and the artist lend a sense of immediacy and authenticity to the narration.

Le Corbusier


Born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, Le Corbusier (1887-1965) adopted his famous pseudonym after publishing his ideas in the review L’Esprit Nouveau in 1920. The few buildings he was able to design during the 1920s, when he also spent much of his time painting and writing, brought him to the forefront of modern architecture, though it wasn’t until after World War II that his epoch-making buildings were constructed, such as the Unité d’Habitation in Marseilles and the Church of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp.

Paris Mon Amour


At once cosmopolitan metropolis and venue for a pensive stroll, Moloch and emblem of the modern, Paris has been a source of inspiration for countless artists and writers down the ages. But not least it is the home and constant muse of a relatively young art: photography. Since the earliest days of the daguerreotype right up to our time, renowned photographers such as Joseph Nicéphore Niepce, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, and Jeanloup Sieff have lived and worked in the city of lights. Over the years a love affair developed between Paris and photography, giving rise to a remarkable record of the metropolis and a telling history of a new art form. This volume takes the reader on numerous walks, camera in hand, through the streets of Paris. Atmospheric black-and-white photos, shot by great photographers over two centuries, reveal the dramatic and the tranquil, the historic and the everyday—in the capital’s parks and gardens, boulevards and backstreets, passages and arcades, bistros and nightclubs.
