Erik Parker: Colorful Resistence

Erik Parker: Colorful Resistence

While internationally acclaimed artist Erik Parker has deep roots in alternative comics, illustration, and graffiti, his body of work successfully bridges that underground culture and the Pop Surrealism movement. The first retrospective look at the artist's irreverent and boisterous artwork, ERIK PARKER: COLORFUL RESISTANCE includes a look at four recurring themes (social and political mappings, pictographs, ebullient heads, and animated still lifes), all of which present busy, intense compositions originated from word clusters, viscera-like forms, and animated figurines that represent the critical mass of social movements. Parker's work is an attempt to provide an overall take on the most pressing issues of the day through aggressively youthful and rebellious fast-paced mark-making, compositional intensity, strident colors, and an anti-authoritarian approach to established ideologies.

Faberge and the Russian Crafts Tradition: An Empire's Legacy

Faberge and the Russian Crafts Tradition: An Empire's Legacy

This book gives a fascinating overview of Russian decorative art, revealing a highly accomplished crafts tradition that persisted over nine centuries. It includes works by Peter Carl Faberge and his workshop, jeweled Byzantine icons, silver drinking vessels, and intricate enamels. Featured are two extraordinary Faberge eggs that were once in the Russian Imperial collection, including one that opens up to reveal a miniature gold replica of the Gatchina Palace, near St. Petersburg.The decorative arts had flourished in Russia under the patronage of the tsars and their court, whose apparently limitless resources supported the production of some of the most technically sophisticated works of art ever made. With the onset of the Russian Revolution, a few individuals helped bring many of these objects to Europe and then into major private and public collections in the United States, including that of the Walters Art Museum. On the 100th anniversary of the revolution, this book tells the stories of their initial dispersal and of the collectors and dealers through whose hands they passed. Full catalog entries for each object are included.160 illustrations in color and black and white

Russian Decorative Arts

Russian Decorative Arts

An informative guide to Russian Decorative Arts and their historical context. Covers a wide range of crafts including Faberg?, jewelry, woodwork, hardstone, glass and porcelain, as well as precious metal. Explores pre-Revolutionary Russia, discussing various artifacts of the Tsarist era as far back as the 16th and 17th centuries with particular focus on the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Ideal for both novice and established collectors of the field. Russia's last great Imperial celebration took place at the Winter Palace in St Petersburg with the lavish ball of 1913 celebrating 300 years of Romanov rule. The finest gowns, jewels, snuff boxes, and banqueting tableware of the Tsarist era were sumptuously displayed then for the last time. The outbreak of World War I in 1914 and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 brought such opulence to an end. Ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russians have been eager to repatriate their lost heritage. Works by jewelers and silversmiths to the Tsars are particularly sought after today as status symbols, with the market for pre-Revolutionary decorative arts touching a wide audience - from the curators at the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, to the predawn bargain hunters at the Paris flea markets. Russian Decorative Arts offers an introductory guide to porcelain, glass, silver, Tula work and other base metals, orders and decorations, jewelry, objects of virtue, Faberge, lapidary, woodwork and walrus ivory. Each topic is detailed...

The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, The Cia, And The Rise Of America’s Secret Government

The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, The Cia, And The Rise Of America’s Secret Government

An explosive, headline-making portrait of Allen Dulles, the man who transformed the CIA into the most powerful - and secretive - colossus in Washington, from the founder of Salon.com and author of the New York Times bestseller Brothers America's greatest untold story: the United States' rise to world dominance under the guile of Allen Welsh Dulles, the longest-serving director of the CIA. Drawing on revelatory new materials - including newly discovered US government documents, US and European intelligence sources, the personal correspondence and journals of Allen Dulles' wife and mistress, and exclusive interviews with the children of prominent CIA officials - Talbot reveals the underside of one of America's most powerful and influential figures. Dulles's decade as the director of the CIA - which he used to further his public and private agendas - were dark times in American politics. Calling himself ''the secretary of state of unfriendly countries,'' Dulles saw himself as above the elected law, manipulating and subverting American presidents in the pursuit of his personal interests and those of the wealthy elite he counted as his friends and clients - colluding with Nazi-controlled cartels, German war criminals, and Mafiosi in the process. Targeting foreign leaders for assassination and overthrowing nationalist governments not in line with his political aims, Dulles employed those same tactics to further his goals at home, Talbot charges, offering shocking new evid...

Наталья Попова, Андрей Федоров Saint Petersburg (подарочное издание)

Наталья Попова, Андрей Федоров Saint Petersburg (подарочное издание)

Прекрасно иллюстрированное подарочное издание в твердом переплете с серебряным тиснением и трехсторонним серебряным обрезом. The city of St Petersburg, the former capital of the Russian Empire and the embodiment of the pride and glory of the Russian state, was founded on 27 May 1703. The creation of the city was a daring feat. In order to realise his vision, Peter I, turning his back on the traditions of "ancient" Rus, called upon the new generation, which, with its fierce confidence and characteristic youthfulness, welcomed his ambitious plans. St Petersburg became the symbol of a new era of Russian history and grandiose, unprecedented ventures. As if challenging nature itself, the Emperor resolved to create a northern "Paradise" on an area of marshy land that seemed perpetually wreathed in mist. Petersburg became the primary concern and favourite "child of the northern giant, in which the energy, brutality and revolutionary force of the '93 Convention were concentrated, ... [the favourite child] of the tsar, who renounced his country for its own good and oppressed it in the name of Europeanism and civilisation" (Alexander Herzen). Indeed, the building of the new capital demanded a concerted effort and a great deal of strength. Many thousands of human lives were lost in the process, and it is perhaps because of this that the history of Petersburg is so full of dark a...

Т. Гейдор, П. Павлинов, А. Раскин Moscow. Architecture. History. Art / Москва. Архитектура. История. Искусство

Moscow... The very word has a majestic and powerful resonance. It almost seems to glow with the same brilliance as the golden domes of the city's churches and the burnished frames of their miraculous icons. Moscow's stellar brilliance is symbolic of its historical role as the gatherer of the Russian lands, the first capital where princes and tsars were crowned. Moscow took root in the very heart of the Russian lands and gradually became immortal. In 1812 the city was a sacrifice on the altar of war, yet precipitated the inglorious demise of Napoleons great army. During World War II Moscow suffered a great deal. The battle in the outskirts of Moscow was the first defeat of the Nazis. Although the city was repeatedly burned to the ground, it rose from the ashes each time like the phoenix. For the people of Russia the city was like a burning bush from which the voice of the country's destiny was to be heard in days of great sorrow and rejoicing. The stellar light that surrounds Moscow has never once been extinguished. Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, the bells of the ancient cathedrals, restored to new life, can again be heard ringing out over "great and gold-domed" Moscow. This is the jubilant "voice of time" that resounds with the enormous energy and vigour of the past, while heralding the indubitable attainment of future heights. It is here in the voice of Moscow, as in its image as a whole, that Russia's underlying strength, its confidence in its ability to fulfi...

The Feather Thief. Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century

One summer evening in 2009, twenty-year-old musical prodigy Edwin Rist broke into the British Museum of Natural History. Hours later, he slipped away with a suitcase full of rare bird specimens collected over the centuries from across the world, all featuring a dazzling array of priceless feathers. Kirk Wallace Johnson was waist-deep in a river in New Mexico when he first heard about the heist, from his fly-fishing guide. When he discovered that the thief evaded prison, and that half the birds were never recovered, Johnson embarked upon a years-long worldwide investigation which led him deep into the fiercely secretive underground community obsessed with the Victorian art of salmon fly-tying. A page-turning story of a bizarre and shocking crime, The Feather Thief shines a light on our fraught relationship with the natural world’s most beautiful and valuable wonders, and one man’s relentless quest for justice.

Suzanne Massie Pavlovsk: The Life of a Russian Palace

Suzanne Massie Pavlovsk: The Life of a Russian Palace

Like the rings in a tree, two centuries of turbulent events have left their imprint on the history of the palace at Pavlovsk. In this, her first book since her classic Land of the Firebird, Suzanne Massie uses this history as a lens to look deeply into the soul of successive periods revealing the heights of hope and the depths of horror in the larger than life size to be found only in Russia. Pavlovsk is a riveting true story of passions and people - as gripping as a novel, exciting as a spy thriller. The story begins in the lavish late 18th-century court of Catherine the Great who gave the land where this magnificent palace was built to her unhappy son Paul and his young wife Maria Feodorovna. Paul, one of the most enigmatic and quixotic of tsars - assassinated a few years after he became Emperor - nevertheless managed to win and hold the love of one of the most beautiful and talented of tsarinas. Together they had ten children, among them four daughters who became queens and two sons who became tsars, the great Alexander I, conqueror of Napoleon and Nicholas I, the "Iron Tsar". Maria Feodorovna, a woman of uncommon taste, working with the best architects and artisans of her day, made Pavlovsk an encyclopedia of all the ideas of beauty of Russia's golden age. The saga sweeps the reader through the revolution, when the palace was narrowly saved from ravaging Red Guards by a group of art lovers - only to fall a few years later into the brutal hands of the Nazis and the Gestapo...

Ashok Khanna, Pramesh Ratnakar Banaras. The Sacred Сity

Ashok Khanna, Pramesh Ratnakar Banaras. The Sacred Сity

Banaras has been for over two and a half thousand years the pre-eminent sacred city of the Hindus. They believe that to bathe in thу holy river Ganges here is to be cleansed of sin, and that to die in Banaras is to win salvation. It is this transcendental promise that chiefly underlies the lasting hold of Banaras on the teeming Hindu imagination and explains its cardinal position on the cultural map of India. The power of faith has shaped Banaras as an urban amalgam with a unique and subtle flavour - as a citadel of the Hindu tradition, as a seat of ancient learning, as a hive of commerce and crafts, and as theatre of the inimitable Banarasi way of life, with its accent on leisure and gaiety.This book seeks to explain the extraordinary synthsis that is Banaras, and to reveal the reach meaning that lies behind commonplace sights and everyday images. Fifty splendid photographs present the inexhaustible panorama of the ghats and images steeped in the daily life of Banaras.Издательство: Lustre Press

Russia. Crimea. History

Russia. Crimea. History

Russia and Crimea. Crimea and Russia. They are one and the same — single mutual history, laced with geopolitics. Remember the unparalled heroism of the two defenses of Sevastopol. Remember Marshals Suvorov and Kutuzov, Admirals Nakhimov, Kornilov, and Istomin. Remember Catherine the Great’s political foresight and Nikita Khrushchev’s extravagance on the verge of treason.Each time after uniting with Crimea, Russia was also becoming the superpower. Each loss of Crimea resulted in the loss of this status. In 2014, our country has become superpower once again, thanks to the fortitude and courage on the part of the Crimeans and a strong political will on that of the Russian President.All these issues are the subject of this new book by Nikolay Starikov (the author of the bestselling Geopolitics. How it is done and Nationalizing the Ruble: The Way to Russia’s Freedom) and Dmitry Belyaev (the author of ‘Mess in Brains’: Information War On Russia). The book strives to answer the most poignant questions of today:• How did Crimea find its way back home in 2014? • Who orchestrated the Kiev coup? Why was it done?• What was the story of the loss of Crimea in 1991? • Why did Khrushchev cede Crimea to Ukraine and all but cede the Kuril Islands to Japan? • What was happening in Crimea during the Great Patriotic War of 1941 – 1945? • What horrors did Crimea endure during the Civil War? Crimea and Russia. Russia and Crimea. One land, one country, one history. Now and forevermore.
