            Cretan-born painter Domenicos Theotocopoulos, better known by his Spanish nickname, El Greco (c.1545-1614), studied under Titian in Venice before settling down in Toldeo. Commissioned by the church and local nobility, El Greco produced dramatic paintings marked by distorted figur...es and vibrant color contrasted with subtle grays. Though his work was appreciated by his contemporaries, especially intellectuals, it wasn't until the 20th century that it was widely embraced and admired, influencing in particular the Expressionist movement.

            Arcimboldo (PDF ebook)

            By De Girolami Cheney, Liana

            Si, selon l'expression connue, vous etes ce que vous mangez, alors Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) fut le peintre parfait de l'ame humaine. Cet artiste etait un dessinateur de talent. Dans cet ouvrage fascinant, Liana de Girolami Cheney se penche sur la critique historique du tra...vail d'Arcimboldo, a partir des debuts de son succes et de l'obscurite tragique qui entoure sa mort, jusqu'a la redecouverte de son travail, en particulier par les surrealistes des annees 1920.

            Arcimboldo (EPUB ebook)

            By De Girolami Cheney, Liana

            Ganz dem Sprichwort zufolge: Du bist, was du isst, setzte Arcimboldo seine Zeitgenossen, Manner wie Frauen, in Szene. Arrangements verschiedener Gemusearten, Fruchte, Blumen oder sogar Fische bildeten die Grundlage der auBergewohnlichen Bildnisse dieses gefeierten Malers. Arcimbo...ldo war ein Meister der Komposition und seine filigran gearbeiteten Werke fingen schlieBlich die Fantasie seiner Generation ein. In diesem faszinierenden Buch wirft Liana De Girolami einen kritischen Blick auf das Leben des Kunstlers, von seinen ersten Erfolgen bis zur Vergessenheit, die auf seinen Tod folgte hin zur triumphalen Wiederentdeckung seiner Kunst und seiner Visionen durch die Surrealisten in den 1920er Jahren.

            Arcimboldo (PDF ebook)

            By De Girolami Cheney, Liana

            If, as the famous saying goes, you really are what you eat, then Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) was a consummate painter of the human soul. This artist was a master draftsman whose finely wrought canvases captured the imagination of his generation. In this fascinating book, Lian...a De Girolami Cheney takes a closer look at the critical history of Arcimboldo's work, from his initial popularity and the tragic obscurity that followed his death, to the ventual triumphant revival of his work and vision by Surrealist admirers of the 1920s.
