Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A society of young artists and writers, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in London in 1848 to rebel against the classical academic painting conventions of the day in favor of a meeting of medieval romanticism and new realism. Inspired by the theories of art critic John Ruskin, who urged artists to “go to nature,” Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, and other artists created works predominantly dealing with religious themes, love, death, and subjects from literature and poetry. Fully illustrated, this book is an accessible introduction to the popular movement.

Synopsis:

Swiss-born artist Paul Klee (1879and#150;1940) created some of the most innovative and best-loved works of the 20th century. Uniquely among his contemporaries, he combined the modernist machine aesthetic with lyrical, organic elements, arriving at a visual language entirely his own. Kleeand#8217;s works remain instantly recognizand#173;able, often characterized by a playfulness and wit that can sharpen to biting satire on occasion. This accessible overview provides a clear and concise guide to this popular modern artist.
