Inside Caravaggio

The visionary world of the international artist, highlighting the emotion-driven and intellectual signs that marked important stages in his life. Caravaggio's technique has been studied in unprecedented depth and detail as part of a project promoted by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, which from 2009 onward carried out a vast campaign of diagnostic tests analyzing the twenty-two autographed works by Caravaggio still in Rome. The project provided the occasion to examine Caravaggio's unique execution from a groundbreaking point of view, reaching areas inside Caravaggio that had never been explored before and making new discoveries about his genius. This catalog offers a unique opportunity to explore the years of Caravaggio's extraordinary artistic production from a wholly new perspective. It will present twenty masterpieces by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, which will be shown together in a Milanese exhibition in 2017 for the very first time ever. The key to the interpretation of the works on display and the leitmotif running through the whole volume is the analysis of the idiosyncratic painting technique that this great Lombard painter was so loath to divulge. He never really had pupils or founded a school despite the enormous success enjoyed by his works in the first decade of the 1600s. Caravaggio remains a mystery who continues to fascinate us today, and the aim of this initiative is to look inside Caravaggio with the help of the latest diagnostic techniques that represent the new frontier for knowledge in art history as well as in the field of conservation.

Life Nude Photos for the Visual Arts

Whether for work on a finished piece, trying a new technique, or getting in some practice time, this figure study enables artists to work when and where they want with their choice of model, pose, and view. The latest in the series features 12 new male and female art models—as well as Becca from the previous book—in a collection of poses selected by readers and visitors to the authors' website. The contrast has also been increased in many of the photos to provide deeper, more challenging shadows. While the guide includes individuals and couples with a wide range of body types in natural, relaxed stances as well as some inspired by classical works of art, the primary focus is on dynamic poses—twisting, scrunching, reaching, and even fighting. Poses are precisely lit, revealing every area of the model, and have been carefully chosen to illustrate important effects such as foreshortening and perspective changes. A judicious amount of photo retouching is done, not to make the models more glamorous or plastic, but to remove distractions that detract from the essence of the models. The PC- and Mac-compatible DVD-ROM included in the book features more than 1,200 high-resolution photos available in a number of viewing options—on a computer screen, printed out, projected for a group, or via a high-definition television. Each angle of every pose may also be enlarged, enabling artists to zoom in on specific body parts to achieve a higher level of detail.

Adolphe Valette

Adolphe Valette was an exceptionally multi-talented artist. Born in France in 1876, he ignored the boundaries of national frontiers and arrived in Manchester in 1905. He introduced impressionism to the city and from 1908 to 1913 produced his famous 'Manchester-scapes'. These captured, in the subtle hues of Valette's impressionist palette, the atmospheric mood of streets, squares, waterways and industrial buildings shrouded in fog and pollution. As teacher at the Manchester School of Art, Valette tutored L.S. Lowry, who acknowledged a debt of gratitude to the artist for more than a decade's instruction. The geographical vagaries of Valette's life brought him back to his native France in 1928 where he continued to paint until his death in 1942. This fascinating and long awaited book contains over 125 beautifully produced illustrations that make Valette's finest work available to all and display his unique talents to splendid effect. Cécilia Lyon at last gives this acclaimed painter the recognition he deserves as an important player in the extensive panorama of early 20th-century British and French painting. Through four years' extensive research, in which the author followed Valette's trail both in the UK and France, exploring everywhere he lived, studied or worked, the author has amassed a wealth of new information. She has uncovered important documents and even rediscovered, in private collections, paintings that had long been forgotten. The only complete work of reference on the life and work of Adolphe Valette, this charming book is a feast for the eyes and full of hitherto unknown facts about this remarkable man.

Careless Talk Costs Lives

Fougasse and the Art of Public Information

Author: James Taylor

Publisher: Conway Maritime Press

ISBN: 9781844861293

Category: Humor

Page: 96

Writing under the pen name of Fougasse, Cyril Kenneth Bird was one of the most popular cartoonists and illustrators of the first half of the twentieth century and arguably the best-known and loved creator of British poster art. The images and captions to his eight World War II propaganda posters 'Careless Talk Costs Lives', which were part of the anti-rumour/gossip campaign orchestrated by the Ministry of Information, are remembered fondly today by millions who experienced life on the Home Front. Other humorous wartime Fougasse designs encouraged the country to be more efficient and productive; to save energy, paper and time. One of his Fuel Economy labels depicts Hitler and Emperor Hirohito jumping for joy captioned 'Switched-on switches & turned on taps Make happy Huns & joyful Japs'. The 'Careless Talk...' campaign had a big influence on American, Canadian and Australian anti-gossip posters. American versions included the more hard-hitting 'A Careless Word...A Needless Loss', and 'A Careless Word...Another Cross'. Fougasse was also popular in France, and his 'Careless Talk' designs were published in the 14 Feb 1940 issue of Paris-Soir. During his lifetime Fougasse's work was familiar to the nation through his cartoons for Punch magazine, public information posters and prolific book illustrations. He created designs for London Underground; on public health and road safety, the majority of which still have a resonance and relevance today. Fougasse also wrote several short publications explaining his design approach, providing great insight into his work. He had strong views about propaganda posters that were articulated in his publication, A School of Purpose (1946). Author James Taylor draws on all this material to analyse why the messages in Fougasse's illustrations were so direct and memorable, and why he chose humour over horror to get his message across. The book is divided into several chapters, covering not just Fougasse's wartime work and comparable posters by other war artists, but his influence on the anti-gossip campaigns abroad, his advertising and illustration work and other public information posters.
