7 Growe, Bernd DEGAS

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "No art could be less spontaneous than mine. Inspiration, spontaneity, temp erament are unknown to me. One has to do the same subject ten times, even a hundred times over. In art, nothing should look like chance, not even move ment." Edgar Degas In terms of both theme and technique, the key to understanding the early wo rk of Edgar Degas (1834-1917) is classical painting. Although he was eventu ally associated with the Impressionists and even participated in their join t exhibitions, Degas never adopted a purely Impressionist approach. Degas's work, reflecting an extremely personal and psychological perspective, emphasizes the scenic or concentrates on the detail. Thus, Degas's painting is often discussed with reference to the rise of short-exposure photography. Thematically, nature proved less interesting to the artist than the life and inhabitants of the modern metropolis. Degas primarily sought his motifs in ballet salons, at the race track or circus, or in bedrooms - but dancers always remained his favorite theme.

FLYING COLOURS: THE TONI ONLEY STORY, Onley, Toni
14 Onley, Toni FLYING COLOURS: THE TONI ONLEY STORY
Harbour 2002 1550172980 / 9781550172980 Hardcover Near Fine/Very Good 
A clean hardcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book:(inscribe d by author) If you're strolling a beach or ferry deck as sunset casts its glow on Briti sh Columbia's Coast Mountains, there's a good chance someone within earshot will say, "It looks just like a Toni Onley." That's how closely Onley is i dentified with the landscape of Canada's West Coast. Don't be fooled. The serenity of those watercolours reflects only one facet of Onley's work--and very little of his tumultuous life. Flying Colours gi ves you the whole canvas, from a rustic riverbank on the Isle of Man to a p lane wreck on a mountain glacier. With sly humour, disarming candour and an artist's eye for detail, Onley recalls a life of professional triumphs and personal tragedies. For a painter known for landscapes and collages, Onley proves a dab hand at word portraits, from haughty maharajahs and quirky Ma nxmen to the alcoholic--and even homicidal--habitués of an artists' colony in Mexico. None is more colourful than Onley himself. From the cocky schoolboy paintin g an extra petal on a daffodil to the Rolls-Royce rebel facing down Revenue Canada--and winning--Onley's passion for art and zest for life leap from e very page. Art lovers will cherish his lucid, unaffected insights into the creative process, not to mention the lavish illustrations, representing eve ry stage of Onley's career. An Officer of the Order of Canada, Toni Onley was born in 1928 on the Isle of Man, where he received his early training and was influenced by the work of the great British watercolourists. He came to Canada in 1948. Onley's work is featured in galleries around the w.

Taschen 2007 3822834165 / 9783822834169 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
"The straight line is godless": A vivid portrait of the artist and his art "If you and your neighbour are creative, we need not travel far. We need not walk far, because paradise is right around the corner." --Hundertwasser Friedrich Stowasser, born in Vienna in 1928, called himself Friedensreich Hundertwasser Regentag Dunkelbunt. True to the colorful variety of his names, he has 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, by nature, virtually inseparable from his biography, his artistic and political actions, and equally so from the "stories" of his (ostensibly) private life, 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.

Taschen 1999 3822895857 / 9783822895856 Paperback Near Fine 
Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is the only sculptor who is of equal rank to the French painters of the "Great Generation" from Monet to Cezanne. But while he has been considered an early modernist among sculptors, he drew on a ric h variety of artistic traditions, including those of ancient Greece, the Re naissance, Egypt and the Far East. He was the creator of a new form in scul pture, the fragment as a finished work, usually a head or a trunk, sometime s a pair of heads only. Rodin is renowned for his expression of emotion and movement and his use of symbolism and distortion. In 1913 the artist descr ibed his pictorial approach to sculpting saying: "I place the model in such a way it stands out against the background and so that the light falls on this profile. Then I turn them again and gradually work my way round the fi gure". Gathered in this work is a collection of photographs of Rodin's mast erpieces - from the impressive shape of "The Thinker", to the powerfully me lancholy group of "The Burghers of Calais" and some of the most outstanding portrait busts of this century, among them Rose Beuret, Madame de Goloubef f, Victor Hugo and Gustav Mahler.
