Scottish Art
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
What makes Scottish art Scottish? The lasting influence of Celtic masterpieces recur throughout the centuries, not least in the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Scottish Art Nouveau, but at a deeper level an idea of Scottish art emerges in depictions of its dramatic landscape, its wars and conflicts, hardships, the heroes of Scottish history, the great figures of literature and philosophy, and its connection with France, from medieval times almost to the present. All these factors form the character of Scottish art which is rich at the same time in distinctive personalities and individual genius, from Henry Raeburn and Allan Ramsay, the two great portraitists of the Scottish enlightenment, to artists working today like pioneering pop artist Eduardo Paolozzi and novelist and illustrator Alasdair Gray. 21.00 x 15.00 cm Paperback 224pp 183 Illustrations, 55 in colour First published 2000

From the beginning of the twentieth century to the twenties is active in Caltagirone architect Xavier Fragapane, a student of Ernesto Basile and leading figure of Art Nouveau and Art Deco in eastern Sicily. To him we owe the development plans and the most important projects of public utility buildings and various types of urban homes and stately villas and economic promoted during the period when he was mayor of the city pro Don Luigi Sturzo. The author, on the basis of unpublished material - documents, sketches and drawings, photographs - gives a complete reconstruction of the personality of Fragapane. In the first part of the book into several chapters, it circumscribes the cultural formation and style, from Art Nouveau to Art Deco and epilogue rationalist, with reference to problems and specificities of the territory and the cultural intricacies that determine its own conception of a 'modern architecture, made ​​for man. The second part examines all projects, the proposed zoning, buildings executed. The volume is therefore as a monographic study exhaustive, for the novelty of the news and the wealth of illustrations, and is also a useful contribution to broaden and deepen their knowledge of local issues and influences of Art Nouveau and Secession architecture liberty which is developed by the school of Basile.

Rossetti's Obsession Images of Jane Morris
Dates:04/10/2014-04/01/2015
Jane Morris (née Burden) was the wife of William Morris, and the favoured model of Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. In his maturity Rossetti drew and painted Jane with an obsessional intensity and she was cast in many literary and mythological roles, including Dante's Beatrice, Pandora, Proserpine and Astarte. Whether in direct or symbolic guise, Jane's features are depicted with a sombre intensity that offer a glimpse into Rossetti's troubled soul. The exhibition, marking the centenary of Jane's death, brings together compelling and rarely seen drawings and pastel studies of Jane by Rossetti. The exhibition also features images of Jane as herself and explores her life and interests beyond modelling. Jane Morris (1839-1914) was a talented embroiderer, linguist and musician and played a role in the family business Morris & Co. The recent publication of her letters (The Collected Letters of Jane Morris, edited by Jan Marsh and Frank C. Sharp, 2012), gives an unparalleled insight into her interests and personality, balancing the sullen and silent impression that Rossetti's paintings have immortalised. Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) was the leading member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. His depictions of Jane ensured that her face became the iconic image of Pre-Raphaelite womanhood. A touring exhibition in partnership with Bradford Museums and Galleries. The exhibition is kindly supported by Farrow & Ball, Islington. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

René Lalique, correspondance d’un bijoutier Art nouveau, 1890-1908
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
What was René Lalique like in his daily life, he who was a sacred monster, a friend of Sarah Bernhardt's, the jeweller of the tzars ad of the Queen of England? A collection of letters helps give us an idea of the creator's exciting existence . They are dated between 1890 and 1908 – he was between 30 and 48 years old – and spend a good part of his existence traveling: to London (to see Garrard, the Crown's jeweller), to America (for the international exhibition at Saint-Louis in 1904), to Geneva, to Saint-Petersburg (we are treated to an amusing story of an ad venture at the customs, since the over-orderly Lalique had forgotten his passport). Young Alice – his second wife - regretted his absence. She champed at teh bit in Paris, tried to get distracted in Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, wondered if she would dare ride a bicycle. One can feel the drama before it arrives: worn out by depression, she committed suicide in 1909. We also discover all his artistic friendships, long term ones or for specific projects: Oriental artist Jean-Léon Gérôme, young Gallé or writer Jule s Claretie who ordered an ink well "with lots of ink"…

Dates:01/09/2050-01/01/2999
This book reproduces the plates of Rene Binet's 1902 "Esquisses decoratives" for the first time since its original publication. Two illustrated introductory essays by Dr Robert Proctor (Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art) and Professor Olaf Breidbach (Haeckel Haus Museum, University of Jena) discuss Binet's interest in the biology, art and philosophy of Ernst Haeckel, and situate his work alongside French architecture and decorative arts at the turn of the century. It presents new research on this exceptional but little-known architect in an accessible way, and is beautifully illustrated throughout. The book is also available in German with the title "Rene Binet: Natur und Kunst".
 
Rene Binet Art Nouveau Industrial and Architectural Designs - ebook
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
his first volume is dedicated to the 60 sketches of his industrial and architectural designs as found in the Esquisses décoratives. The sketches include a shelter, clips, rings, wardrobe, balcony, bench, jewelry, frame trim, electric buttons, decorative bricks, tiling, ceramic, capitals, keys, gates (wood and grilled), nails, corbels, towers, country decorations, industrial signs, finials, stairway, printed fabrics, ridgepole decorations, wrought iron, ironworks, fountain, frieze, weather vanes, door-knockers, lead inlay, gardens, lanters, chandeliers, showcases, stores, marquetry, embossed metal, mosaic, wallpaper, mast bases, hinges, ceilings, door plates, stencil, porch, door, rinceau, rosettes, sgraffito, seats, pedestals, carpet, needlepoint tapestry, trellis, tympanum, stained glass and arches and arcs. René Binet was born in Chaumont, Yonne [Burgundy region] on the 14th of October, 1866 to Savinien Joseph Binet, a railway tracklayer and Marie Grosset, a housekeeper. He attended the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA), from 1886 until about 1892, and was a student of Victor Laloux. Binet was an architect, decorator, and painter. Perhaps his most culturally significant contribution was his design of the main entry for the Paris Exhibition of 1900, a commission that he won. He is considered an artist of La Belle Epoque, executing his designs in the style of Art Nouveau. Two Paris addresses are associated with the artist: 6 rue de l’Abbaye and 33 rue Bonaparte. According to the Musée d’Orsay, René Binet “discovered Italy after winning, in 1893, the Chaudesaigues prize, which enabled young architects to spend two years there”. Along with Italy, Binet also traveled to Sicily, Algeria and Spain. The museum also attributes these trips to his interest in watercolor painting. According to the museum, he traveled frequently which provided him some relief from his rheumatism. In 1903, an exhibition, at the Galerie Paul Durand-Ruel in Paris, featured his watercolor paintings. His work was also greatly influenced by the research and illustrations of Ernst Haeckel. Gustave Geffroy, in his forward to Esquisses décoratives, notes that Binet viewed the Clathrocanium reginae as the most beautiful and a perfect representation of the richness and logic of the Radiolaria family. Geffroy also points out that it is the Clathrocanium reginae that inspired the design of the Porte Monumentale [main entrance] of the Exposition Universelle of 1900. You can see illustrations of these geometric and microscopic sea creature skeletons in the next volume of Binet’s works or in the separate edition of Haeckel’s works from delsc. Binet died in 1911 in Ouchy, Switzerland. A second volume includes some of architectural projects such as the Porte Monumentale for the Exposition Universelle of 1900, the Printemps department store and his many watercolor paintings from Versailles and the Trianons.
