Giacometti: Pure Presence National Portrait Gallery Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Since his death at the age of sixty - four in 1966, Alberto Giacometti has become recognised internationally as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century and sales of his sculptures now achieve record - breaking prices. Belonging to no particular artistic movement, he developed through cubist and surrealist phases and later attained a mature, individual idiom whose preoccupation with the depiction of a human presence in an enveloping space may be seen in relation to contemporary existentialist concerns with defining the place and purpose of man in a godless universe. Taking its title from Jean - Paul Sartre, who described Giacomettis endeavour to give sensible expression to pure presence, the book explores the artists work in relation to existentialist ideas. Spanning painting, sculpture, drawing and printmaking, Giacomettis oeuvre ranges from idiosyncratic surrealist objects to intensely observed images of the human figure, with images of particular individuals at the centre. This book, like the exhibition it accompanies, looks at the various phases of the artists career and explores in detail his depiction of his main sitters, including his mother; Diego his brother; his wife Annette; Jean Genet the playwright; Caroline, a prostitute; and his friends Yanaihara and Lotar. Early drawings, paintings and sculptures of members of his family and his own image demonstrate Giacomettis awareness of post - impressionist and divisionist styles. After moving to Paris in 1922, until the late 1930s he made progressively abstracted images of a range of sitters. From 1946 Giacometti resumed painting and depicting an individual human presence became central to his work. After 1954, when he began making sculpture from life, increasingly his portraits evolved as the outcome of an ongoing dialogue between painting and sculpture. Giacometti subjected the human image to a radical process of interrogation and transformation in which the exploration and representation of flesh, presence, distance and space are vital, interacting elements. As a result, a human presence seems poised between being and non - being, providing the basis for Giacomettis reputation as one of the most innovative artists of the last century.

Concept of Nature Prometheus Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Originally published in 1920 and based on the Tarner Lectures in the philosophy of science, this early work by Alfred North Whitehead made an important contribution to the development of philosophic naturalism. It also featured his assessment of the impact of Einstein's theories and the new findings of modern physics on the concept of nature. Whitehead begins with a critique of generally accepted ideas about substance, space, and time, as inherited from ancient Greek philosophers, and as modified in the Enlightenment. To assume that matter is the basis of reality, he insists, is a longstanding error, whereby a metaphysical abstraction has been misinterpreted as a concrete reality. Interestingly, though he accepted Einstein's theory of relativity, he took issue with Einstein's interpretation of it, as well as popular conceptions of relativity that pictured "space bending" under the influence of matter and gravity. Instead of positing matter as the substratum of the universe, Whitehead argued for the "event" and the "process of becoming" as the starting points for analyzing reality. He felt this "organic" interpretation was closer to our direct, everyday experience of attributes and their relations than the abstract notion of matter assumed by philosophers and scientists for so many centuries. These ideas were later systematically presented in his most famous work, "Process and Reality. After publication, "The Concept of Nature was widely praised. A. E. Taylor, writing in "Mind, called it "the finest contribution, in my own judgment, yet made by any one man," and J. E. McTaggert, in "The Cambridge Review, said that it was "one of the most valuable books on the relation of philosophy andscience which has appeared for many years." Though written many decades ago, Whitehead's reflections remain innovative and stimulating.
