Review: Years ago I wanted to learn something about architecture. I've always been interested in buildings: the beauty and the technology behind. This book served the purpose of giving an introduction and explanation of the basic concepts very well. It managed to answer the why and how questions on different levels of scale, as well in details as in general concepts. Most important of all it enforced my appreciation of architecture as a vital and interesting piece of art. Now having read tens of books more on the subject, I would still choose this one as the book to begin with.

    Description: The Leiden-born artist Jan Steen (1626-1679) is widely admired as one of the most engaging and technically brilliant painters of the Dutch Golden Age. This volume accompanies an exhibition that will be the first in the UK devoted to Steen's Old Testament subjects. The focal point will be his magnificent Wrath of Ahasuerus (c. 1668-69), one of the highlights of the Barber's collection, which will be joined by a number of other paintings by Steen from private and public collections across the world. Three essays will examine the core themes of the show - the role of Jewish history in Steen's Old Testament scenes; the infl uence of Dutch theatre on his work; and the critical response to his Old Testament paintings from the 17th century to date. Robert Wenley (Barber Institute of Fine Arts) will look at how the Dutch nation established its identity in part by associating its people with the Biblical Israelites, seeing themselves as persecuted by the Spanish for their faith. He will explore the popularity of the story of Esther and other Old Testament subjects in Dutch culture - in plays as well as paintings - and the possibility of Jewish patrons for Steen's Old Testament paintings. Nina Cahill (University of Kassel) will put forward new research about how Steen adopted the gestural language of contemporary Dutch theatre, amateur and professional, in order to represent the key fi gures in these scenes and to convey the pivotal dramatic moments. In some instances, Steen may have been quoting from an actual production of a play based on the Biblical story. Rosalie van Gulick (Utrecht University) will consider how Steen's Old Testament scenes have been received and understood over the years. She will investigate how the apparent farcical character of these scenes has been understood over the centuries and why they have prompted adversely critical responses from some modern art historians.

  • Waterstones Why Architecture Matters

    Price: £11.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: A classic work on the joy of experiencing architecture, with a new afterword reflecting on architecture's place in the contemporary moment' Architecture begins to matter," writes Paul Goldberger, 'when it brings delight and sadness and perplexity and awe along with a roof over our heads." In Why Architecture Matters, he shows us how that works in examples ranging from a small Cape Cod cottage to the vast, flowing Prairie houses of Frank Lloyd Wright, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Guggenheim Bilbao. He eloquently describes the Church of Sant' Ivo in Rome as a work that 'embraces the deepest complexities of human imagination." In his afterword to this new edition, Goldberger addresses the current climate in architectural history and takes a more nuanced look at projects such as Thomas Jefferson's academical village at the University of Virginia and figures including Philip Johnson, whose controversial status has been the topic of much recent discourse. He argues that the emotional impact of great architecture remains vital, even as he welcomes the shift in the field to an increased emphasis on social justice and sustainability.

    Description: An examination of the relation between concepts and experiencing. This work examines the edge of awareness, where language emerges from non-language. In moving back and forth between what is already verbalized and what is as yet unarticulated, Eugene Gendlin shows how experiencing functions in the transitions between one formulation and the next. A whole array of more than logical characteristics enables us to examine as well as to employ this new kind of thinking which is not merely conceptual because it begins from the intricacy of felt meaning and returns to it again and again.

    Description: All that is known is experiencing, and experiencing is not divided into one part (an inside self) that experiences and another part (an outside object, other, or world) that is experienced. Experiencing is seamless and intimate, made of knowing or awareness alone. This intimacy, in which there is no room for selves, objects, or others, is love itself. It lies at the heart of all experience, completely available under all circumstances. Waterstones Presence, Volume II - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
