  • The Age of Rossetti, Burne-Jones & Watts: Symbolism in Britain 1860-1910 [top]
    Edited by Andrew Wilton and Robert Upstone with contributions from Barbara Bryant, Christopher Newall, Mary Anne Stevens and Simon Wilson
    Introduction by Andrew Wilton, Keeper of the British Collection at the Tate Gallery
    Published in 1997 in Great Britain in hardback by Tate Gallery Publishing, 304pp, ISBN 1854371967
    Front Cover: Edward Burne-Jones 'Night', 1870
    Back Cover: Charles Ricketts 'Oedipus and the Sphinx', 1891
    Frontispiece: Simeon Solomon 'Love in Autumn', 1866

About this book: In the last 25 years, Symbolism has been much investigated, but British artists have usually been accorded a marginal role in the movement. It has always been assumed that Symbolism was essentially a continental phenomenon, having only slight links with what happened in Great Britain in the late 19th Century. This new examination of the subject revises that view by focusing on key British artists, some of whom predate their continental colleagues in dealing with the characteristic themes of Symbolism. These were above all, Death, Sleep and the erotic impulse. Sometimes the Europeans were a decade or more behind their British counterparts, who provided important precedents for their innovations. It has been overlooked that both Watts and Burne-Jones exhibited in Paris to critical acclaim, that the young Picasso admired Burne-Jones, and that the leading Belgian Symbolist, Fernand Khnopff, wrote articles for the London art magazine 'The Studio'. There was in fact a far greater exchange of ideas between British and continental artists than might at first be imagined. Published to accompany the major exhibition at the Tate Gallery conceived by Andrew Wilton, Keeper of the British Collection, an exhibition which gives a fascinating insight into the background whence modern art emerged, this catalogue examines some central themes of Symbolist art, and includes important works by Rossetti, Burne-Jones, Watts, Whistler, Beardsley, Moreau, and Khnopff. All the works in the exhibition are shown in colour in the book and that amounts to more than 130 paintings, drawings and sculpture. The contributors to this volume have also written the detailed catalogue entries for each of the works (listed below) - we can't stress this enough about this book - if you want to have a detailed and expert description of the paintings listed in the catalogue, this book is the one for you. Art aficionados should find this a must-have work of reference, fascinating and often revelatory.

Contents: Contains 51 colour plates and 208 black & white illustrations. Familiarity with the art of these three Asian countries has for too long been considered a field for experts only. Here is a much needed introduction to the art of all three in a profusely illustrated volume that serves three main purposes. First of all, it is informative and readable and, like all good introductions, makes one want to inquire further into the subject. (Here the extensive bibliography will be of great help). Secondly the 259 plates enticingly cover the best examples of the art of these countries and are closely related to the text. Their beauty itself needs no introduction. Thirdly, and surprisingly for the first time in one volume, the arts of China, Korea and Japan are treated together. Their close relatedness can now be easily appreciated. Naturally, Chinese art dominates and is the major source of inspiration. But in many fields, such as the Japanese art of Portraiture, the source is surpassed, and the author makes a point of bringing out the originality and vigour of the national cultures as well as the way they were influenced from the outside and influenced each other. The interplay of the sources of influence, political and cultural, make a vivid and dramatic history. The author has taken care to choose the illustrations himself and they include many never reproduced before [1963] as well as the most famous subjects.

Chapters:
1. The Beginnings
2. The first Chinese Empire - Beginnings of Korean and Japanese Cultures
3. Disunion in China - Buddhism - Japan enters the Chinese orbit
4. China unites again - The power of Chinese culture in the T'ang Dynasty over Great Sillan Korea and Nara Japan
5. The East divided - The Fujiwara in Japan
6. Three Great Periods: the Sung Dynasty in China, the Koryo Dynasty in Korea, and the Kamakura Dictatorship in Japan
7. China and Korea under Mongol domination
8. The Ming Dynasty: tradition and decoration
9. Japan and Korea c. 1400-1600: the Ashikaga Period and the beginning of the Yi Dynasty
10. The Momoyama Period: Japanese taste
11. The Ch'ing Dynasty, 1644-1911 - The Second Hafl of the Yi Dynasty in Korea

About the Author:
Peter Swann, author of 'An Introduction to the Arts of Japan' was born in 1921. He was educated in London and Leiden and afterwards went to Oxford where he studied history and subsequently Japanese, for wartime naval services. His love of Chinese art and culture manifested itself at the age of 15 when he acquired two exquisite Chinese Imperial tea bowls from a London antique dealer
After the war, he returned to Oxford to study Chinese and specialized in the arts of Japan and China. He graduated in 1949 from Oxford University in Classical Chinese and was appointed manager of the Ashmolian Museum, department of Oriental art, Oxford University in 1950. During 1950-1951, his studies took him to Japan and America and after 1956, he edited the Journal Oriental Art.

In 1965, he designed and installed the Eastern Art Galleries, Princeton University. In 1989, he joined the faculty at Renison College, as a professor and founding director of the East Asian Studies program.

He died in 1998

  • Art of the Soviets: Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in a One-Party State, 1917-1992 [top]
    Edited; and including articles by Matthew Cullerne Bown; and Brandon Taylor
    First published in 1993 in Great Britain by Manchester University Press in hardback, ISBN 0719037344
    First published in 1993 in Great Britain by Manchester University Press in paperback, 231pp, ISBN 0719037352. Original price when first sold: £14.95. Illustrations: front cover: Eduard Bragovski 'Logging on the Vetluga', oil on canvas, 1964; back cover: Alexander Dushkin with sculptor Matvei Manizer, 'Revolutionary Fighter', 1917 metro station Revolution Square, Moscow, opened March 1938

About this book: Art of the Soviets gives a comprehensive and readable analysis of the wide range and subtlety of Soviet art from 1917-1992. It looks at Soviet art's considerable stylistic complexity, analysing painting, sculpture and architecture of the Lenin, Stalin, Khruschev, Brezhnev and Gorbachev eras. Containing many illustrations of individual works, most of which have never been seen outside the Soviet Union, and written by a distinguished group of British and Russian contributors, Art of the Soviets presents an original interpretation of Soviet visual art that includes official and unofficial art, avant-garde and traditional approaches. The chapters cover Lenin's plan for monumental propaganda, representation of the male body, the Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia, Socialist Realist architecture, art practice in the 1940s, historicism in the 1970s, Alexander Gerasimov, Ilya Glazunov and the position of art in the Soviet Republics. There is also an assessment of the art in the Gorbachev period, again relating its production to wider political and cultural issues and to art movements outside the Soviet Union, which will give those interested in contemporary Russian art, an invaluable guide. Art of the Soviets provides a critical introduction to art and design in the former Soviet Union which will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students, lecturers in art and architectural history and those interested in all aspects of twentieth-century Soviet art and culture

About this book: Contemporary public art is increasingly assuming a more visible presence in Britain. Opportunities for the promotion of public art have been provided by visual arts organisations, concerned to persuade the public that art has a role to play in our everyday lives, and central and local governments' desire to support and stimulate environmental renewal, give people a better quality of life and new hope. But very little is known about the impact of public art and whether it is meeting with success. The central interest of this report is in permanenet rather than transient works of public art, which have been in places for at least 18 months. It focuses on case studies in London, Birmingham, Smethwick, Sheffield and Silkstone, South Yorkshire. The report considers why each of these works had come into being, what kind of impact it was hoped they would have, and how they have benefited the environment, the public the artistic community, and whoever invested in them

About this book: The conventional history of art is one of great men making great paintings, and displaying their works to a predominantly male audience in male-run institutions. Women, however, have always had a rolein the arts, often working behind the scenes or in opposition to prevailing attitudes and practices. In seeking recognition as artists in their own right, they have had to challenge conventions and expectations, steel themselves for confrontation and be unafraid to court danger. Their work, in turn, has often been groundbreaking, defiant and even subversive.

Danger! Women Artists at Work is a compelling selection of more than 60 artists from the early renaissance to the present day, among them Judith Leyster, Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo and Louise Bourgeois, who, in their determination to present a woman's point of view, have shaken up the art world. Through a lively introduction and six thematic chapters dealing with such subjects as the ways in which women have challenged the boundaries of expression and how they have viewed the human body, acclaimed art historian Debra Mancoff presents an absorbing tale of those who have struggled and triumphed in their efforts to transfor the visual arts

About this book/synopsis: The author gives here her philosophy of art, a work which she begs the reader to see as a follow-on (volume 2) to her earlier work 'Philosophy in a New Key', which was a study in symbolism, including an analysis of music that is the foundation of the theory of aesthetics in this book. In fact this book does presuppose that the reader is acquainted with the first work.

The author suggests that among all the theories and philosophies of art there is no clear answer to the problem of what art creates, but that once you have answered this question, all the further questions of why and how, personality, talent and genius should emerge in a new light from the central thesis. All the arts are in some way analysed in relation to this question, and the result is a definition of art which connects it on one side with manual skill and on the other with feeling and expression. Art is the creation of forms which are symbols of human feeling. The book is written simply, and the argument explained clearly. There can be no doubt about the importance of its contribution to aesthetic theory.

Chapters:
Part 1: The Art Symbol:
1. The Measure of Ideas
Philosophy the study of basic concepts-rival doctrines a sign of inadequate concepts-art theory full of confusions-its basic problems not formulated-"fallacy of obvious abstraction"-methodology and method-generalities and generalizations-requirements of philosophical thinking-principle of generalization-principle of fecundity-function of a central problem-problem of artistic creation-systematic emergence of general concepts and special problems-difficulties and promises of this undertaking
2. Paradoxes
Key ideas in aesthetics heterogeneous-each gives rise to a special type of theory-further complications due to two standpoints-expression and impression-tendency of theories to be paradoxical-"polarity" of feeling and form-feelings in art not felt-paradox of "objective feeling"-Baensch on feeling as quality-his distinctions-old issue of "Significant Form."
3. The Symbol of Feeling
Several meanings of "expression" - all kinds found in art-most kinds not peculiar to art-summary of special theory of music in Philosophy in a New Key -music, a symbolic expression of feeling - summary of semantic theory - articulated forms - vital import - meaning of "significant form" in music - Clive Bell and plastic art - Bell on "aesthetic emotion" - "aesthetic attitude" - source of the concept - supposed difficulties of attitude - criticism of psychological approach - the art of symbol - technique -definition of "art."

Part 2: The Making of the Symbol
4. Semblance
"Aesthetic attitude" elicited by the work-illusion-images-their virtual character-semblance-Schiller on the function of Schein-abstraction of form-form and content-import as content of artistic forms-Prall on sensuous forms-on feeling in art-limitation of his principles-creation of virtual forms-design as logic of artistic vision-relation to feeling-movement and growth-"living form"-creation
5. Virtual Space
Motifs-not works, but devices-suggestive shapes-form and representation-pure decoration expressive-representation as motif-visual articulation the aim of all plastic art-shaping of space-actual space and virtual space-primary illusion of plastic art-its autonomous character-Hildebrand on "perceptual space"-"architectronic process"-the picture plane-third dimension-"actual form" and "perceptual form"-unity of perceptual space-visual values-imitation and creation-space made visible-"life" in works of art-expression of vital feeling-nature of "expressiveness"-primary illusion the basic creation-elements and materials-modes.
6. The Modes of Virtual Space
Virtual "scene"-Hildebrand's generalization false-organic form of sculpture-"kinetic volume"-subjective space objectified-architecture and virtual space-arrangement and creation-"ethnic domain"-organic articulation of place-relation between sculpture and architecture-autonomy and unity of the arts
7. The Image of Time
Interest in materials-theories of sound and audition-not musical theory-nervous responses-vibrations-musical elements are audible forms-their motion illusory-primary illusion is virtual time-difference from "clock time"-not one-dimensional-passage not succession of "states"-incommensurable tensions-musical time and pure duration-Bergson's failing-music and Bergson's durée réelle-musicians his really constructive critics-fear of "spatialization" unfounded-"musical space"-parallels with plastic space -conceptions-further problems
8. The Musical Matrix
Composition and presentation-organic whole the essential conception-"commanding form" and composition-not the same as the Urlinie -principles of art and major devices-many kinds of music-definition of rhythm-greatest rhythm the "commanding form"-objectivity of musical matrix
9. The Living Work
Ambiguity of "the piece"-inward hearing and physical hearing-poetry and music not simply comparable -essential factors in physical hearing-in inward hearing-composition incomplete -performance its completion-controlled by musical matrix-utterance -artistic expression and self-expression-actual feeling for the piece-pathos of the voice-formalization-musical imagination versus "mere technique"
10. The Principle of Assimilation
Words and music-theory and practice often at variance-words become musical elements-but not mere sounds-"aesthetic surface" not the perceptual form-form "swallows" foreign materials-poetic forms broken down-music swallows drama-Staiger on Wagner and Gluck-program music-hermeneutic principles as motifs-irrelevance of associations-daydream "swallows" music-other arts may do so.
11. Virtual Powers
Aesthetics of dance presents special difficulties-dance as a musical art-contrary evidence and views-dance as plastic art-Noverre-as dramatic art-objections-dance an independent art-gesture its basic abstraction-complex nature of gesture-subjective and objective-actual gestures as material-virtual gesture-vital forces-dance-forces as virtual powers-dancers on self-expression-confusion of actual and virtual aspects-dance-personages as virtual beings-Scheingefuhle-analysis of problems involved-mythical statements resolved-value of the theory
12. The Magic Circle
Primitive conception of Powers-the Spirit World-Cassirer on the "mythic consciousness"-sense of power objectified in dance-prehistoric evolution of dance-Curt Sachs on types of mind-natural forms as motifs-what is created-illusion of freedom from actual forces-ballet-dance as apparition-dancer and his "world"-music as dance-element-balletic time and space-effect of passive audience-effects of secularization-entertainment-effect of dance on music-confusion of thought and clearness of intuition in dancers-dance as pure art
13. Poesis
Literature called art, but treated as statement-discourse its material-ways of saying things-criticism and paraphrase-I. A. Richard on understanding poetry-saying and creating-poetic illusion made by discourse-virtual life-all literary art poetic-two senses of "life"-semblance of events-subjective form-events the basic abstraction-philosophy in poetry-fiction and fact-dialect-Tillyard on "direct" and "oblique" poetry-fallacy of "deeper meanings"-no poetry is statement-moral themes legitimate-laws of logic and of imagination-art and life
14. Life and Its Image
Imagination as miscarriage of reason-Cassirer on language and imagination-Barfield on language and myth-Freud on non-discursive symbols-psychoanalytic "meanings" not artistic import-artistic import not hidden-Freud's study of non-discursive "logic"-principle of over-determination-of ambivalence-of absence of negatives-of condensation-"dream work" and art work-poetic devices and schools-the ideal of "pure poetry"-poetry defined as an experience-as a kind of language-inadequacy of such treatments-poetry as semblance of events admits all poetic works-all good poetry "pure" reality of its import-souces in actual life-no subject taboo-transformation of fact-prose a poetic form
15. Virtual Memory
Lyric poetry the clearest case of creative language-not a pre-eminent art-present tense of the lyric-narrative a major literary device-change to perfect tense-closed form of past-virtual memory-apparent vagaries of tense have creative functions-mixed tenses in ballads-myth and legend literary materials-no composition without personal authorship-poetry not necessarily oral-literacy and poetic arts
16. The Great Literary Forms
Poetic conventions-literary forms spring from special devices-no absolute literary "values"-techniques and creative purposes-strong means make others superfluous-ballad technique-romance-verse becomes dispensible-prose fiction-novel a recent form-often viewed as comment, not art-illusion of "felt life"-story and story-teller-character creation-Clive Bell on Proust-secondary illusions in literature-fact as the "model"-non-fiction as applied art-exploiting discursive form as motif-specialization of forms-the epic as matrix of all literary forms
17. The Dramatic Illusion
Drama is poetry, but not "literature"-basis abstraction the act-mode of memory and mode of Destiny-virtual future-Morgan on "form in suspense"-wholeness of dramatic action-organic form-situation-"setting" versus "environment"-drama a collaborative art-poet furnishes speeches-speech as culmination of action-must be enacted-real and fictive feeling-theory of dramatic make-believe-Bullough on "Physical Distance"-drama as a ritual-as amusement-as work-of-all-arts-Hindu theory-belied by Hindu stage practice-drama as dance-drama "swallows" dancing-Rosa-Oriental drama enacts physical objects-all elements of drama poetic
18. The Great Dramatic Forms: The Comic Rhythm
Moralism in dramatic theory-comedy as social criticism-tragic and comic as points of view-really different structures-universal sense of life-life and death-the comic rhythm-destiny as Fortune-the tragic rhythm-destiny as Fate-serious comedy-"Divine Comedy"- the Nataka-heroic plays-comedy and humor-theories of laughter-all ignore "psychical Distance"-humor a structural element in comedy-the buffoon-humor as brilliance of drama-many sources of comedy-audience response not ordinary laughter-the rhythm of universal life
19. The Great Dramatic Forms: The Tragic Rhythm
The tragic rhythm-potentiality and fulfillment-life as a total action-Fate-tragedy not known everywhere-"commanding form" of action-condensed life-the "tragic error"-tragedy does not illustrate fate, but creates its image-comic elements-comic substructure-function of spectacle-mere spectacle-drama not a hybrid art-its real relation to life.

Part 3. The Power of the Symbol
20. Expressiveness
Art symbol not symbolism-central questions in philosophy of art-non-temporal projections of feeling-life of feeling-all vital patterns organic-associated ideas may vary-perception of import intuitive-Bergson on intuition-Croce on intuition and expression-consequences of his theory-Cassirer on abstraction and insight-art symbol does not "refer" or "communicate"-Collingwood on art as "language"-on candor and corruption-on irrelevance of technique-criticism of his book-fear of symbol-theory-dangers and strength of such theory-art and craft-art and personality-the artist's understanding
21. The Work and Its Public
Artist and public-objectivity-the ideal beholder-problems of art-perception-artistic import not comment-always held in the symbol-percipient's relation not to artist, but to the work-real nature of "aesthetic emotion"-beauty-primacy of responsiveness-freedom and frustration of response-anticipation of form-effect of art on life-education of feeling-art and religion-effects of secularization-entertainment-not the same as amusement-art criticism-talent and genius-"artistic temperament"-art as cultural heritage
Appendix: A Note on the Film
Motion picture not drama-not pantomime-not a plastic art-"swallows" all materials-is a separate poetic mode-"virtual present," the dream mode-basic abstraction is "giveness"-moving camera-creative character of film

About this book: The Tate Gallery's collection of art since 1945 is now a particularly strong one and includes a number of outstanding and world-famous works. This publication has been produced to coincide with a special exhibition of the Tate Gallery's holdings of the painting and sculpture of the second half of the 20th Century -it serves both as a review of what has happened in art since the Second World War and as an opportunity for the visitor to assess the strengths and weaknesses of The Tate Collection at that point in time. When published, The Tate intended that this book should be of lasting value, and to serve not only as a souvenir of the Gallery's own collection, but as a helpful, lucid introduction to the principal new art movements since the war. Each section or chapter within this book has a brief introduction by Ronald Alley, the Keeper [in 1986] of the Tate's Modern Collection

  • George Stubbs 1724 - 1806 [top]
    Selected, catalogued and written by Judy Egerton
    1996 edition: foreword by Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Gallery in 1996
    First published in 1984 in Great Britain in hardback with dustjacket by Tate Gallery Publishing, 246pp, ISBN 1-85437-187-8

About this book: This volume was first published as the catalogue of the great Stubbs exhibition held at the Tate Gallery in 1984-5 and subsequently at the Yale Centre for British Art. As Alan Bowness and Duncan Robinson, the then directors of these institutions, wrote in their original Foreword, Stubbs is one of the greatest of British Painters, but one who for a long time was under-valued by the label 'Mr Stubbs the Horse Painter'. The 1984-5 exhibition did much to finally remove that label by revealing the full range of Stubbs's interests and his sheer genius as a painter and draughtsman. The exhibition was selected and catalogued by Judy Egerton, then an Assistant Keeper of the British Collection at the Tate Gallery. It remains a standard work on Stubbs. Judy Egerton in her introduction states that nearly all of Stubbs work except for a handful of drawings and the two major series of anatomical drawings has disappeared, which leaves the expert and the reader with a lack of knowledge about Stubbs's working methods - i.e. did he make preliminary studies for his finished pictures? It is inferred that he did. It was hoped though that the exhibition, even on the scant materials it had offered up enough to show Stubbs's genius as a portraitist of human beings as well as of horses and lions, dogs and tigers and that those who find the anatomical drawings gruesome will find abundant solace in the grace-notes in Stubbs's work - in the details of foreground flowers, for instance, and in the beauty of weeds

The authors of this book here present a selection of artists who still prefer to get their hands dirty in the traditional way creating their own unique works of art from wood, paper, cloth, oils, pastels, paints, plastics, metals, and many many more materials. The authors have chosen to present a collection of artworks, specially selected by artists, from different backgrounds, who adopt various techniques to create these pieces. Every profile is accompanied by a brief interview to get a closer idea of the artist's work and techniques

  • Helen Allingham's England [top]
    First published in 1990 in Great Britain by Webb & Bower in hardback with dustjacket
    Reprinted in 2000 in Great Britain for Past Times, Oxford, in hardback with dustjacket, 127pp, ISBN 1840670878

About this book: Helen Allingham's paintings of rural England now enjoy enormous popularity and receive greater acclaim than ever before. In this new biography, the first for almost ninety years, the astonishing versatility of Helen Allingham's work is revealed. The 110 colour illustrations show that the 'painter of cottages' in fact produced fine seaside and farmyard scenes, portraits and interiors as well as the much-loved flower borders. Seen also for the first time are some twenty of Helen's early pencil sketches, photographs and examples of her magazine illustrations. Helen Allingham was one of the early women to train at the Royal Academy Schools, the only female on the staff of the Graphic Magazine, and the first woman admitted to the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours. In 1874, she married the Irish poet William Allingham and the couple lived in London, mixing with other writers and artists such as Tennyson, Burne-Jones and Carlyle. It was, however, the eight years Helen then spent in Surrey which provided her with the greatest inspiration. Hers was a romantic view of rural life with centuries-old cottages, beautiful young women and endless sunny days, all portrayed with fine attention to detail. For us, as much as the Victorians, Helen Allingham's art offers the perfect form of escapism, the tranquil, timeless world we all long for

p6. 'A Cart By A Village Inn', which is a glimpse of village life in Shere, Surrey, painted during the Allingham's summer holiday there in 1878

p8. 'Beside the Church Gate Farm, Smarden, Kent'. A woman stands holding a baby in a shawl in front of a beautiful old timbered house where the gate stands open and a cat watches her whilst doves sit on the roof. Helen usually used toddlers in her pictures so the focus on the baby is unusual. The quantity of detail in her pictures is incredible - there is a house martin's nest visible under the eaves of this house
p9. Picture which shows a mother and todder over the other side of the hedge and a woman gathering eggs this side whilst chicks mill round her feet and a chicken peers out from between the slats of its house
p10. Thatched cottage - Hill Farm - in Symondsbury, Dorset, where Helen sometimes went to paint on visits to her Herford relatives
1. Childhood and Early Art Training (1848-1866)
p12, left. Thatched cottage at Farringford, Isle of Wight, painted during one of Helen's visits to the Tennysons in her later years

p14, left. Black and white pencil drawing of Henry Walter Paterson, Helen's brother who she drew in 1869
p14, right. A faint black and white pencil sketch of Helen's sister Isabel, drawn from a photograph. Isabel had sadly already died with her father from Diphtheria
p15. One of Helen's illustrations (b&w) for 'Six to Sixteen', a girl's story by the popular Mrs. Ewing. Helen's monogram is in the bottom left corner. She illustrated several of Julia Ewing's stories when working in London
p16. 'A Cottage Door' - the young girl watching her kitten was a favourite topic for Helen
p17. 'Early Primroses' - a scene Helen witnessed in a wood close to her later home at Sandhills in Surrey, which was a favourite walk for the family
p18. Helen Paterson's painting of the corner of a house in Verona, which she painted at 20 just before she was about to enter the Royal Academy Schools
p20. Pencil sketch of a lady in preparation for drawing on to a wood block for printing
p21. left, b&w illustration for a story by Mrs Ewing, drawn by Helen Paterson and engraved by one of the leading London engravers, Harral
p21, right, another of Helen Allingham's b&w illustrations for 'Six to Sixteen', serialized in the Aunt Judy Magazine in 1872
p22, a detailed b&w drawing by Helen Paterson for the Saturday September 7th, 1872 cover of the 'Graphic' . She was earning around four hundred pounds a year as an illustrator at this time, which was a lot of money even for a man to earn
p23, full page picture showing 'Gathering Firewood', the composition of which owes much to the wood-block illustrations for books which Helen had recently undertaken
p24, b&w sketch of a group of ladies, assembled for a dramatic reading at Mr. Gladstone's house in Carlton Terrace, for the 'Graphic'. The Prime Minister is visible at the back
p25, top, shows two pages from a handmade sketchbook, only about three inches high. It was used by Helen to make diescreet sketches of the play 'The Wandering Heir' as it was performed at the Prince of Wales Theatre in 1874. From these notes, she compiled her illustration for the Graphic
p25, bottom, b&w portrait of Helen Paterson in her early twenties at the time she worked as an illustrator-cum-reporter on the Graphic
p26, Helen called this picture 'Japonica' after the brilliantly coloured shrub by the door. It was exhibited in 1885
p27, one of Helen Allingham's earlier paintings where the large central figure shows the influence of Frederick Walker
p28, a gentle and tender colour study of Helen's sister Louisa lying in bed with a terminal spinal disease. Helen cared for Louisa up until her death a few days later on 15th November 1871
p29, a self-portrait by Caroline Paterson, Helen's sister, who also trained as an artist and whose portrait work is virtually indistinguishable from her more famous sister's

p30, colour portrait of her husband which she painted a few months after they got married, when he was fifty. A copy of this picture hangs in the Dublin Portrait Gallery
p32, b&w photograph (studio portrait) of the new Mrs Allingham, taken to celebrate her marriage

p35, full page illustration of Thomas Carlyle's home in London where Helen made several drawings of the great man. The background detail in this and her other pictures of the house has been of great value to the National Trust and their restoration of the house
p36, left, b&w illustration of 'The Tinsmith's Shop' - Helen's original illustration for 'A Flat Iron for a Farthing', which she later worked up into a watercolour which gained her admission to the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1875
p36, right, 'This Year, Next Year, Sometime, Never' - given by Queen Mary to the Superintendent of Governesses at Petersham Lodge, Surrey, in gratitude for her services during the 1930s

p38, top, a seaside scene 'Near Beachy Head', painted during the Allingham's summer holidays, which is packed with interest
p38, bottom, a scene of two women haymaking, painted in the 1870s. They demonstrate Helen's transition from large central figures to smaller figures set in a landscape
p39, a beautiful painting of the vibrant colours of the bluebells in the woods near Sandhills, Surrey, which inspired Helen to produce several studies
p40, painting of a strange turreted feature over the doorway of a cottage in Brook, Witley, Surrey (also painted by Myles Birket Foster)
p41, painting of a view of Sandhills, Surrey, in the late summer, painted from just above the house where the Allinghams lived in the 1880s
p42, painting of 'At the Cottage Door', an example of one of Helen's earlier cottage studies executed before she settled in Surrey
4. A Country Life 1881-1888
p43, black & white illustration of the only known painting of Helen's home Sandhills, executed in September 1881 soon after her arrival. Her husband William looks out of an upstairs window, while Gerald and Eva walk up the garden path. The present whereabouts of this painting are unknown
p44, left, 'The Caterpillar', a painting, shown here in colour, executed during the 1880s in Surrey. Clematis montana was a particular favourite with Helen and appears in other pictures
p44, right, a colourful study of cottage plants, including roses, daisies and cornflower, made in a Surrey garden and exhibited in 1886
p45, a full page of a cottage in Sandhills which Helen must have liked given that she painted it at least eight times
p46, top, a painting of a cottage in Brook Lane, which was a short walk from the Allinghams' home and which Helen painted on at at least three occasions from various angles
p46, bottom, a rural scene called 'Digging Potatoes' (colour)
p47, colourful scene that shows Helen's cottage gardens, painted in such detail that it is possible to identify every single plant
p48, full page in colour of an especially fine Allingham painting entitled 'Over the Garden Wall', painted around 1880 showing two young girls chatting
p49, painting of Valewood farm, which the Allinghams drove past regularly on their way to visit the Mangles family at Valewood House. Helen painted this lovely medieval house on many occasions
p50, portrait painting of Helen's daughter Eva Margaret, aged eight. Helen Allingham did not generally accept commissions for portraits. Those of her children are considered her best
p51. Helen painted this domestic scene of her son Gerald and daughter Eva receiving lessons in the dining room at Sandhills with their tutor
p52, left, painting of the blond-haired Henry Allingham, aged three, walking into a room at Sandhills
p52, top right, a pencil sketch of Helen's favourite son Henry on a swing under the trees at Sandhills; it was published as a book illustration
p52, bottom right, pencil sketch of Henry looking at himself in a full size pivoting mirror, one of many illustrations of Henry that she drew for 'Rhymes for the Young Folk'.
p54, a sketched stage design, b&w, which Helen made to accompany her husband's play 'Ashby Manor', which was never produced. The sketches actually adapt features from the Allingham's own home and their neighbours homes
p55, painting entitled 'Bubbles', which was inspired by a visit to Tennyson's home in September 1884. Tennyson fetched soap and a pipe to entertain his two grandsons from which he then blew bubbles
p56, cottage study where unusual autumn tints appear. Helen did not normally paint autumn - it did not inspire her
p57, Helen's son Henry being cradled by the children's nanny Elizabeth Haddon in the nursery at Sandhills
p58, painting of an Indian lady who Helen was fascinated by and of whom she made many drawings. This scene is believed to be at Shanklin, Isle of Wight
p59, painting of Vine Cottage, one of Helen's 'Surrey Cottages'
p60, left, a charming portrait of a young girl in lilac sunbonnet. These bonnets were out of fashion when Helen painted the subjects who wore them, but she kept her own stock of rustic costumes
p60, right, a portrait of 'Kitty', which was Helen's pet name for Félicie Keith, a child model who appears in many of Helen's later paintings
p61, painting entitled 'Coming Events', which was exhibited at the Fine Art Society in 1886 as one of Helen's winter scenes. The picture shows an internal scene, probably late afternoon judging by the sunset with a cat looking towards its owner as she approaches with a saucer of milk. We can only see the hand, bowl and the owner's shadow
p62, self-portrait of Helen Allingham painting in 1885 when she was thirty-seven
p63, 'The Clothes Line', a colour painting of the London model Mrs Stewart in 1879, her depicted hanging the washing out. Ruskin objected to the red coloured hankerchief on the line
p64, left, painting of Tennyson, who was notoriously difficult to draw or paint (he hated it)
p64, top right, painting is a portrait of Emily Lady Tennyson, wife of the Poet Laureate
p64, bottom right, Helen's handwritten note recording how and when she made the sketch of Tennyson in 1887 at Aldworth, Blackdown, Haslemere
p65, left, pencil sketch of Tennyson by Helen, taken during one of their first meetings. It was to be ten more years till he let her paint his portrait
p65, right, painting made on 5th August 1880 of Lord Tennyson's favourite dog, 'Old Don', who accompanied his master on many walks over Blackdown
p66, full page of the portrait painting of Alfred Lord Tennyson made in his study at Farringfor in April 1890 with the poet's full cooperation
p67, full page of the painting of 'Tennyson's Woods at Blackdown', made in 1902. Allingham believes it was looking southwards from Tennyson's Road to his woods over Fox Holes
p68, portrait painting of Rhoda Hardy, a local Surrey girl who later became Mrs Burgess, landlady of the Dog and Pheasant at Brook near Sandhills
p69, 'A Spring Garden' - a garden she painted at a house close to her own belonging to Mr. Ayland, a bellringer at Witley Church
p70, a painting of the garden of one of the Allingham's Surrey neighbours. An older child to that normally painted by Helen is depicted holding a yellow posey and admiring the red roses
p71, a painting of a Surrey farmhouse where Helen painted it as it could once have looked, and not how it currently was (i.e. missing its thatch and lattice windows)
p72, 'In a Witley Lane', a painting of one of a series of "Surrey Cottages" which Helen exhibited in London in 1886
p73, painting of an old cottage in Wormley Wood, Surrey, which ended up being demolished. Helen & her husband William were concerned to preserve such buildings
p74, painting of Gerald Allingham, Helen's eldest, in 1880 at Broadstairs, Kent. As an adult, he became an engineer
p75, b&w photograph of the Allinghams' Surrey home taken when W. Graham Robertson lived there
p76, painting of a cottage where Helen has added doves to the roof, something which she frequently did as a mature painter
5. The Established Artist, 1889-1926
p78, painting of a painting by Helen where shadows have been added - something that it was normally rare to see in one of her paintings. This is a picture of a street at East Hagbourne, Berkshire when Helen was visiting fellow artist Robert Anning Bell and his family
p79, painting made in 1891 in Ireland when Helen took the three children to Ballyshannon to see the birth and resting place of their father
p80, painting of the front of a cottage at Pinner, Middlesex painted in the 1890s. The painting on p81 is of the same cottage, but in close up and painted from the right hand side in 1890 on a painting trip with Kate Greenaway
p82, painting entitled 'At School Green, Isle of Wight', which was executed during a spring visit to the Tennysons in the early 1890s
p83, painting showing a view over Freshwater Bay, Isle of Wight, painted during Helen's regular visits to the Tennysons in the 1890s
p84, painting of Stanfield House, Hampstead, in 1899 in a rare urban scene
p85, painting of a timber-framed manor house painted during one of Helen's many excursions to Kent in the early 1900s
p86, 'The Old Beech Tree', painted in Kent. Shows a large-trunked tree covered in scratched-in graffiti and two children looking at the various initials scratched in; whilst deer look on in the background
p87, left, b&w photograph of Helen at work in her studio sat in her favourite painting chair, now preserved in the Hampstead Museum
p87, right, a sunset painting in Venice during Helen's expeditions there in 1901 and 1902
p88, a typically English-looking picture but with 'Venice' pencilled on the back. Probably painted in the garden of Mrs. Eden (sister of Gertrude Jekyll) who lived and gardened there
p89, 'Venetian Fruit Stall', painted in 1902
p90, painting retrieved from an Australian rubbish tip with a smashed frame. Has survived unscathed
p91, top, two pages from Helen's sketchbook which she gave to her grandson Patrick to paste in his album when he was a child
p91, bottom, the gardens of Manor Farm in Yorkshire, which show a more prosperous household than Helen usually portrayed
p92, b&w photograph of Helen in later years. She painted until the end of her life
p93, left, a painting of white campion by Helen's daughter Eva. It is the only known picture by her
p93, right, painting of 'Our Primrose Wood, Brook, Surrey', which was a gift from the artist to her son Gerald and his first wife Emily during the summer of 1913
p94, painting of 'The Little Path, Kitchen Garden, Sharston Manor, Cheshire, 1920'
p95. 'Valewood Farm' from a slightly different agnle from that found in the picture on p49. Birmingham Art Gallery bought this direct from Helen in 1891 for 55 guineas
p96, portrait of Daphne Daffarn, dated 1886 and inscribed 'To Alice' (her mother, née Mangles). The Daffarns lived at Valewood House where Helen was to spend her last few weeks
6. Helen Allingham's Technique
p98, left, 'Under the Malthouse' - it was not the malthouse that caught Helen's eye, but the doorway on the garden. Birket Foster also painted this doorway, but from the road
p98, right, photograph of The Old Malthouse as it is today
p99, most of the original thatches had disappeared from Surrey by the 1880s, so Helen had to travel to Somerset to make her drawings
p100, painting of Hindhead, Surrey, which was a view familiar to Helen. It has an unusual perspective for an Allingham painting
p101, a painting that captures the glories of a summer garden at Brook, Surrey, in such minute detail that it is possible to identify every flower
p102, painting of a garden at Hambledon, Surrey where cabbage plants add realism to this idyllic scene. The young boy in the picture is probably Helen's eldest, Gerald, whilst the baby boy is most likely her younger son, Henry
p103, a painting that really shows Helen's keen observation of country life - note the sticks propped up against the side of the cottage which the man had collected to support his runner beans
p104, a rare study of an old lady - grandmother figures do appear in several of her paintings
p105, this early Allingham farmyard scene uses Chinese White to creat the white effect. The painting is unusual in having two boys as the only and main human focus in the picture
p106, a painting of the sandhills that gave Sandhills and the Allingham's house their name. The cottage at the top of the Sandhills depicted here was lived in by John Hardy, the Allingham's gardener. The woman shown in front of the building holding the baby is John's daughter, Ada
p108, a rare farmyard scene from Helen in that it depicts large animals (here a horse and three bulls)
p109, left, some of Helen's studies of small birds -these sketches were used to help her finish her paintings
p109, right, an 1878 picture painted during one of the Allingham's summer holidays. It uses Chinese White rather than scratching out to achieve the white areas
p110, a study of children at 'A Country House', which was painted in the late 1870s when Helen was using Chinese White rather than scratching out to achieve the whiter shades
p111, 'Cottage at Roundhurst', a painting which has a fine crop of ragwort in the foreground. Helen achieved her bold flower colours by scratching back to the paper and flooding the area with pure pigment
p112, top, a black and white sketch from a page from Helen's 1870 sketchbook, showing her interest in cottage interiors even when she was at art school
p112, bottom, an 1870 sketch (b&w) of a cottage interior where the mantle ruffle is caught up in the same way as in 'Baking the Bread' opposite
p113, 'Baking the Bread' - a stunningly realistic and lifelike picture where Helen has observed every detail of cottage life - even down to the flat iron stored alongside the main beam
p114, painting of a seaside scene which shows an Indian ayah appearing with her charges, this time on 'Dover Beach' in 1878. The picture is small, only four-and-a-half by seven-and-a-half inches
p115, a seaside study depicting a girl sitting on the wooden breakers on the beach looking out to sea still wearing her shawl, bonnet and shoes. It was painted during the family holidays at Broadstairs, Kent in the late 1870s
p116, painting of a cottage with a glorious display of climbing nasturtiums, which was adjacent to the Allinghams' own home at Sandhills. Helen painted this cottage many times
p117, a painting of a charming spring scene where a young girl coming out of the gate is fascinated by a hen and her brood of chicks
p118, painting of a little girl cradling her doll outside a thatched cottage near Crewkerne in Somerset
p119, 'The Fiddler' painting exhibited in 1886 is one of the few paintings Helen did with a man as the main figure
p120, A study of Aitre, St. Maclou in Rouen made in the early 1900s when Helen was travelling to Venice
p121, 'Harvest Fields At Westerham', one of Helen's later landscapes. However, such pictures without figures in them were never popular with the public
p122, 'Cat's Cradle' painting, which is the work of Helen's sister, Caroline Paterson, who followed Helen to art school and into book illustration, but never achieved the same fame as a professional artist
p123, a painting which is regarded by many as one of the finest examples of Helen Allingham's art. It shows Helen's daughter Eva giving the youngest member of the family his first reading lesson

  • Hogarth and His Place in European Art [top]
    First published in 1962 in Great Britain by Routledge & Kegan Paul in hardback with dustjacket, xxii, 270pp, indexed, 152 plates, No ISBN. Original UK retail price: 84s. net (84 shillings). Preface by Evelyn Antal, dated to July 1961

Contents/synopsis: The book grew out of a lecture Frederick Antal gave in 1942 at the Courtauld Institute in London on an exhibition at the Warburg Institute illustrating the links between continental (especially Mediterranean) and English art. The author notes in the introduction that the central problem with Hogarth is how he created a totally new form of art in theme and form out of the void that existed at that time.

In this work therefore, the author has made the first attempt to convey the historical relevance, both in its native and European context, of perhaps the most outstanding English painter of the 18th Century. Dr. Antal here applies his method of establishing the close relationship between the political and social history and the arts and letters of the period. Thus the book goes far beyond the limits of art historical appreciation. It gives a panoramic picture of the 1st half of the 18th Century in England with all its social, literary and artistic connotations. He shows how Hogarth was the most progressive artist of his time in an England which had grown to be the most politically and economically advanced power in Europe - and this was despite the somewhat sparse native artistic tradition.

Hogarth's work in fact revealed the views, tastes, activities and behaviours of a wide range of society, some of it showing society stripped down to a fairly stark rendition of reality. The author looks at the stylistic origins of Hogarth's work and traces them back to European sources. He also analyses Hogarth's impact on European and English art as well as the influence his work had on contemporary and future generations.

The book showcases in 152 plates some of the wonderful work of Hogarth and others by foreign artists.

About the author: Frederick Antal was Hungarian, born in 1887; he died in 1954. His interest in art led him to study art history at the universities of Budapest, Berlin, Freiburg, Paris and Vienna; it was at Vienna that he took his doctorate under Professor Dvorak.

Working for a time at the Budapest Museum of Fine Arts, he also lectured at Budapest University, but it was travelling extensively in Italy that allowed him to devote himself to researching Mannerist painting, publishing several papers on the subject.

When he came to England in 1933, he first lectured at the Courtauld Institute of London University; and he published a book on Florentine Painting and Its Social Background in 1948.
Fuseli Studies was published posthumously in 1956, which was a work that analysed Fuseli's style in the European context. Antal traced his style back to Italian mannerism and forward in time to expressionism in the 20th Century.

  • Landscape and Power [top]
    Edited by W. J. T. Mitchell

    2nd revised & updated edition published in 2002 in the United States by the University of Chicago Press, 376pp, ISBN 0226532054

About this book: When first published, Landscape and Power reshaped the direction of landscape studies, considering landscape not simply as an object to be seen or a text to be read, but as an instrument of cultural force, a central tool in the creation of national and social identities. This edition adds not only a new preface, but also five new essays from Edward Said, W.J.T. Mitchell, Jonathan Bordo, Michael Taussig and Robert Pogue Harrison.

The aim of the book is to change "landscape" from a noun to a verb - it asks us to think of landscape not as an object to be seen or a text to be read, but as a process by which social and subjective identities are formed. The study of landscape went through two major changes in the 20th Century - the first (linked to modernism) attempted to read the history of landscape primarily on the basis of a history of landscape painting and to turn that that history into a narrative of progressive movement towards purification of the visual field - it's more contemplative because it's aim is to evacuate verbal, narrative, or historical elements and the presentation of an image designed for transcendental consciousness; the second (associated with postmodernism) tended to decenter the role of painting and pure formal visuality in favour of a more interpretative semiotic approach where landscape is decoded in a body of determinate signs, be they trees, stones, water, animals, and dwellings, etc. These signs can be read as symbols in religion, psychological or political allegories.

Landscape and Power aims to absorb these approaches into a more comprehensive model that would ask not just what landscape is or means, but what it does - how it works as a cultural practice. Landscape, it is suggested, does not simply signify or symbolize power relationships, it is an instrument of cultural power; perhaps even an agent of power that is (or frequently represents itself as) independent of human intentions.

  • Master Drawings from the Courtauld Collections [top]
    Catalogue by William Bradford and Helen Braham. Sponsored by Toray Industries, Inc. The colour plates within the volume have been produced by the Toray Waterless Plate, a new technique developed by Toray Industries
    First published in 1991 in Great Britain by the University of London/Courtauld Institute Galleries in hardback with dustjacket, 208pp, ISBN 0904563065. Front cover shows 'A Standing Man' viewed by from the front, whilst the rear of the book shows 'A Standing Man' viewed from the rear - both by Canaletto. Endpapers show details from 'A View from Somerset Gardens looking towards London Bridge' again by Canaletto

    Also published in paperback in 1991 in Great Britain by the University of London/Courtauld Institute Galleries, ISBN 0904563073

About the book: The eighty drawings included in this catalogue are among the most splendid of the Courtauld Institute's treasures, and have been selected from the Princes Gate, Lord Lee of Fareham, Sir Stephen Courtauld, Sir Robert Witt, and Spooner collections. All were given or bequeathed to the Courtauld during the last forty-five years, and are a testimony to the taste, discernment and generosity of the Courtauld's benefactors. The scope of the catalogue has been limited to works covering a period from the early 15th to early 19th centuries. Within this range are the beautiful brush drawing by Hugo van der Goes; pen and ink drawings by Pieter Brugel the Elder; landscapes by Fra Bartolommeo; two Michelangelo sheets, including the enigmatic 'The Dream of Human Life'; and superlative works by Guercino, Claude, Bernini, Canaletto, Rubens and Tiepolo. British art is represented by fine examples of the work of Gainsborough, A. and J.R. Cozens, Francis Towne, Cotman, Girtin and two glorious Turner watercolours (the exhibition from which this catalogue is derived stopped short at the early 19th century of which these two Turners are the climax: The Crook of Lune, looking towards Hornby Castle; and Colchester). The aim of this catalogue is to present in an accessible format the most up-to-date information about the drawings on show, with a descriptive text supported by an illustration of the drawing forming a double spread. Details of provenance and the relevant literature, with extended footnotes, supplementary illustrations and bibliography are published at the end of the main catalogue entries

    Pierre Duhem was born on 9 June1861 and died 14 September 1916

About this book/synopsis: Physicists are often accomplished musicians but, surprisingly, excellence in physics is rarely matched with creative ability in the visual arts. One might reasonably expect physicists to draw or paint well because the physicist's ability to see a wealth of ramifications in a single formula is akin to the painter's ability to grasp instantaneously the message of a scene. Someone who had immense ability in physics and art and was therefore an exception to the rule was Pierre Duhem whose stature as a theoretical physicist and as a philosopher and historian of science has not ceased to grow ever since his death in 1916 at the age of fifty-five. The vastness of his publications in those fields is matched by well over four hundred landscapes, the principal part of his artistic output. A substantial number of these is presented in this album by Stanley L. Jaki who, in his Uneasy Genius: The Life and Work of Pierre Duhem, has already given a glimpse of Duhem the artist. In this special study, Professor Jaki draws a detailed parallel between Duhem's ideas on physics and his landscapes. He shows, by citing many passages from Duhem's writings, that the mathematically abstract and the visually concrete can convey a similar message if both stem from a consistent commitment to realism. He also puts Duhem the landscapist in the context of a dignified realism that has never been absent in the long history of landscape painting.
Whilst the purpose of this book is to present the universality of Duhem's genius in that hitherto unexplore aspect in which he appears as an artist, it should be emphasised that such a purpose is supremely merited. Duhem's genius as an artist was widely recognised by his contemporaries, for example by Jean-Gabriel Lemoine, the director of the Musée des Beaux Arts, who referred to Duhem as "the master" and frequently mentioned the word "genius" about him. This was high public praise indeed.
Duhem's landscapes reflect strength, balance and dignity although they were inspired by a wide variety of scenes: the rugged coasts of Brittany, the gentle banks of the Meuse, the broad plains around Lille, the prehistoric valleys of the Dordogne and the Brian, the gorges of Tarn and La Jonte, the arid plateaus of the Cevennes, the hills of Provence, the peaks of the Pyrenees and last, but not least, the sombre mountains around Cabrespine, a village north-east of Carcassonne where Duhem spent many of his summer vacations. The section on landscapes is preceded by selections from Duhem's childhood drawings, from his aquarelles of mushrooms and from the the illustrations (in 1883) for 'Au Pays des Gorilles', a politico-cultural satire. Drawing and painting had been among young Pierre Duhem's first ambitions and he had already drawn a scene of soldiers amidst their tents and a series of uniformed soldiers (in colour) when he was six and nine respectively. These drawings show his natural talent for proportion, perspective and clarity of contours.
As a teenager of 12-15 years old, he showed talent in observing shapes, such as molluscs, dolphins, rocks, trees, buds, houses and churches and filled five sketchbooks which show his developing skills in drawing men and animals: both solitary figures and groups. Most of these sketches were drawn in the summer vacations which young Pierre spent in those years in St. Gildas de Rhuys on the Gulf of Morbihan. In his middle teens, he drew his parents, sister, self, and other subjects, moving towards being a competent caricaturist.
From 1877-1878, he spent much time drawing mushrooms of all kinds from the Carnel forest which he had gathered with his younger sister Marie and he did this with amazing accuracy and perception, correctly linking them with their Latin names which he wrote on the pictures and thereby methodically producing more than one hundred aquarelles. He produced a small 167 page notebook called Mycologia in 1877 featuring a beautifuly drawn title page and many colour illustrations. It is all part of the Pierre Duhem blossoming as a scientist and artist and helps the reader understand why Louis Pasteur many years later would have wanted him to become his assistant - the drawing skills Duhem had would have been highly sought after at a time when microscopic photography did not not (yet) exist
Duhem turned to painting landscapes at about the same time as he turned to physics - the year: 1884. He was at the time completing the first draft of his ill-fated doctoral dissertation and was spending part of the summer at his mother's ancestral home in Cabrespine. That summer, he turned his attention to drawing landscapes and produced a half dozen large-size inkwashes of the mountains and valleys. He also drew a smaller pen drawing of the village itself where it is clear he realized that this technique allowed him to render scenes in incredible detail and a village scene provided plenty of such details.
In around 1890, Pierre Duhem started to change from inkwash to pen drawings in India Ink. Album I, begun in July 1890 comprises mostly inkwashes. Album XII contains only pen drawings and pencil sketches not completed in pen. Between 1890 and 1904, Duhem's artistic activity produced about three hundred landscapes, yet, during the next twelve years to 1916, his production level sank drastically. However, the one hundred landscapes he produced are special for three reasons - technical: he completely abandoned inkwash and aquarelle for pen drawing; secondly, the execution and composition are much more robust; thirdly, the landscapes are exceptionally high in quality. Overall strength and a firm grasp of detail are chief characteristics of Duhem's landscapes. They embody emphasis on the real, the tangible, the vast, and the solid together with a firm balance. It leaves the reader speculating endlessly on how such physicists as Einstein, or Bohr would have represented external reality. These questions will remain unanswered of course because no famed physicists were master of the pen and brush. Duhem was unique among them and for this his artistic production should be all the more appreciated

  • Piero della Francesca [top]
    Written by Marilyn Aronberg Lavin
    Published in 2002 in Great Britain by Phaidon Press Ltd, in paperback, 352pp, ISBN 0714838527
    Published as part of Phaidon's Art&Ideas series, which seeks to provide comprehensive introductions to world art, which are recommended for students and anyone curious about art. The volumes are written by internationally respected scholars with up-to-date and informative facts, figures, opinions and reviews that provide an enjoyable and jargon-free way to read about art. The books explore the ideas behind visual forms and put art into its historical context to provide better understanding of the environment that gave birth to them

About this book: Few artists of the fifteenth century are as revered today as Piero della Francesca (c.1413-92). The 'favourite artist' of many painters and sculptors of our own time, he is admired especially for the balance of his compositions, the geometric perfection of his forms and the emotional coolness of his style. The secret of these qualities lies in part in Piero's achievements as a mathematician - one of the greatest of his age who wrote three treatises on the subject. Even so, most of his paintings were commissioned to serve a religious function and were appreciated by his contemporaries for their spiritual value. In this comprehensive survey, which benefits from superlative new photography of recently cleaned frescos, Marilyn Aronberg Lavin offers detailed analyses of all of Piero's surviving works. Situating his images within the context of early Renaissance art, religion and politics, she skilfully links past and present to offer an understanding of the artist's timeless appeal. Marilyn Aronberg Lavin, an outstanding authority on Early Italian Renaissance Painting, has taught at Princeton and Yale

About this book/synopsis: The book describes itself as the first book to celebrate the achievement of Wally Fawkes, a prominent and influential figure in comic graphic art, particularly in post-war cartoon and caricature. Trog is the nom-de-plume of Wally Fawkes, a Canadian born in Vancouver in 1924, who became resident in Britain from 1931, studying at Sidcup Art School and Camberwell College of Art.

In the 40 years prior to this publication coming out, Fawkes has contributed a fine body of political cartoon, comic strip and caricature to periodicals and newspapers such as the Spectator, Private Eye, Punch, the New Statesman, the Observer, The Daily Mail, Today, and the London Daily News . He was the first cartoonist in modern times to depict the Royal Family and helped set the cartoon 'look' of figures like Jimmy Carter and Margaret Thatcher.

He created the popular and sophisticated Flook strip of which this book is the 40 year celebration; and his portraits have made it as leading features in Punch in modern times.

The author of the book is a Fleet Street Cartoonist in his own right and has produced a pioneering account of the comic artist and the man himself. He talks about Fawkes' artistic forebears and his jazz and clarinet-playing (he was a member of the Humphrey Lyttleton band for several years); his work and friendship with George Melly; as well as the technical steps behind the creation of a Fawkes image.
