Tour of the English Lakes - 2854276965

Tour of the English Lakes FRANCES LINCOLN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1769 Thomas Gray (best known for his 'Elegy in a Country Chuchyard') made a tour of the English Lakes, and recorded it in a journal that is now widely accepted as the first example of modern travel writing. He delighted in what he saw and conveys vividly to us the lakes and the mountains through eighteenth-century eyes. A few years later the watercolourist Joseph Farington followed in Gray's footsteps and painted a series of key views along the way. These paintings, which were later engraved and published, are beautiful in the picturesque tradition, and, from a topographical point of view, are remarkably accurate, unlike the work of most artists of the time. John Murray has brought together for the first time Thomas Gray's journal, Joseph Farington's watercolours, and the engravings after the watercolours that sold widely at the time and were key to the popularising of the lakes. In addition he has photographed Farington's views as they appear today, and it is remarkable how many of them are so clearly and still easily recognisable today. Here is an unusual and original view of the Lake District, and one that has not been attempted before.

Fred A. Farrell Philip Wilson Publishers Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Fred Farrell was a self-taught etcher and watercolourist, specializing in portraits and topographical subjects. Discharged from active service in November 1916 due to ill health, he was then attached as a war artist to the 15th, 16th and 17th Highland Light Infantry in Flanders and the 51st (Highland) Division in France. He also drew the heroic Home Front effort of women in Glasgow's munitions factories, shipyards and engineering works; these drawings are remarkable for their dynamism and energy, allied with an artist's sense of pattern and design. Farrell's powerful sketches and watercolours of the Front offer a landscape filtered through his personal experience and emotion. Battle scenes and strategic deliberations are reconstructed, informed by first-hand accounts. Many include portraits of serving soldiers. This book showcases in print for the first time these unique and vivid records of war.

William Daniell's Inverness & the Moray Firth Maťa

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1768 the Royal Academy of Arts was founded by George III. The first president of the academy was Sir Joshua Reynolds. William Daniell was born in 1769 and joined the Royal Academy Schools in 1779 at the age of 10. He became a successful artist in oils and watercolours, but his unique and particular skill was as an aquatintist. His ability to transfer his artistic work to aquatint prints was exceptional and was recognised as such by his peers, resulting in his election as a Royal Academician in 1822. In 1813, at the age of 44, Daniell set about his major work: A Voyage Round Great Britain. Over the years 1813 to 1823 he went on horseback around the country's coast, dividing the journey into six trips from his residence in London. He made detailed, annotated pencil sketches of interesting views, including in them people and buildings. From these sketches, he finally published 308 aquatint prints together with a comprehensive text describing the landscape and the people. This book follows part of Daniell's journey in 1815, from Thurso to Banff, revisiting the places that he visited. It includes good reproductions of the 30 aquatint prints which he finally published, together with present day photographs of these same views insofar as this was possible. The journey covered a wide spectrum of landscape and involved areas of Scotland that were at that time being cleared by local landowners, and areas that were more stable. The observations of other travellers, Thomas Pennant, John MacCulloch and Charles Cordiner are referred to where appropriate. The book also describes the technique of aquatinting, which requires high artistic skills and dexterity. Containing themes of history, art and travel, this book will appeal to a wide range of readers.

Tradescants' Orchard - 2854288534

Tradescants' Orchard The Bodleian Library

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In the early seventeenth century there was eager interest, among the leisured classes, in fruits from the Mediterranean and beyond, not least for the kitchen gardens and orchards of England's grand houses. The volume of charming, vibrant, almost primitif watercolour paintings of orchard fruits on the branch, popularly known as 'Tradescants' Orchard', is a precious and fragile relic of this era of broadening horticultural horizons. This manuscript, traditionally associated with the renowned plantsmen, the John Tradescants, was among the eclectic collections of Elias Ashmole (1617-1692), which came to form the basis of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. Then, in 1860 it was transferred to the Bodleian Library. It has been quietly recognized as a mysterious treasure, yet the paintings raise many unanswered questions. Who painted them, and for whom? What was their purpose? Only one apple is represented - were there once others, now missing? Whose handwriting appears in the manuscript? Why did the artist paint wildlife such as birds, frogs and butterflies on many of the folios? All sixty-six of the original illustrations are reproduced here in facsimile for the first time, following a general introduction which maps out the mystery of why and how these beguiling watercolours came to be commissioned and made.
