            Edward Hopper (PDF ebook)

            By Souter, Gerry

            In his works, Hopper poetically expressed the solitude of man confronted to the American way of life as it developed in the 1920s. Inspired by the movies and particularly by the various camera angles and attitudes of characters, his paintings expose the alienation of mass culture.... Done in cold colours and inhabited by anonymous characters, Hopper's paintings also symbolically refl ect the Great Depression. Through a series of different reproductions (etchings, watercolours, and oil-on-canvas paintings), as well as thematic and artistic analysis, the author sheds new light on the enigmatic and tortured world of this outstanding fi gure.

            Auguste Rodin (PDF ebook)

            By Rilke, Rainer Maria

            Tout a la fois influence par les maitres de l'Antiquite, le genie de Michel-Ange et la sculpture baroque, Auguste Rodin est l'un des artistes les plus reconnus de l'histoire. Bien qu'il soit considere comme l'un des fondateurs de la sculpture moderne, Rodin n'a jamais critique la... tradition classique. Nombre de ses sculptures furent critiquees et controversees en raison de leur sensualite ou de leur realite crue. Ses oeuvres les plus originales se detachaient des traditionnels themes mythologiques ou allegoriques pour etreindre le corps humain, celebrer l'individualisme et la materialite. Ce livre devoile la vie et la carriere de cet artiste en explorant ses oeuvres majeures telles que La Porte de l'Enfer, Le Penseur et le fameux Baiser.

He was also a writer of effervescent, caustic wit, as shown in this selection of essays on all aspects of design and aesthetics, from cities to glassware, furniture to footwear, architectural training to why 'the lack of ornament is a sign of intellectual power'.Translated by Shaun Whiteside With an epilogue by Joseph Masheck
