€ 56.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book forms part of our ´Pook Press´ imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in classic literary works. The Rhinegold and the Valkyrie´ was written by the German composer Richard Wagner (1813-1883). The works are based loosely on characters from the Norse sagas, and are here translated into English by Margaret Armour. The chief components include ´The Rhinegold´ - the prelude, ´The Valkyrie´ - the first day of the trilogy, ´Siegfried´ - the second day of the trilogy, and ´The Twilight of the Gods´ - the third day of the trilogy. The text is accompanied by a series of dazzling colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration, his artistry still delights both young and old over a century later. The text is presented in its original translation, alongside Rackham´s beautiful images which only serve to refine Wagner´s masterful story-telling.

Ballet
€ 45.00 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Following his career-spanning monograph The Big Picture, Arthur Elgort pays homage to his fi rst love and eternal muse in this new collection of photographs.While glimpsing ballet through Elgort´s lens we are taken not to the front of the stage but behind the scenes, where the hard work is done. On this journey through the hallways and rehearsal spaces of some of the world´s most distinguished ballet schools, including the New York City Ballet and the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet, we see previously unpublished images of legends such asBalanchine, Baryshnikov and Lopatkina. The perfection of the prima ballerina disappears in these quiet photographs where the viewer is able to witness the individual dancers´ natural glamor as they work to perfect their craft. Elgort´s snapshot style allows the pain and pleasure of one of the world´s most beloved forms of expressive dance to be seen with beauty.

Diane Arbus
€ 12.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The definitive biography of the beguiling Diane Arbus, one of the most influential and important photographers of the twentieth century, a brilliant and absorbing exposition that links the extraordinary arc of her life to her iconic photographs. Diane Arbus brings to life the full story of one of the greatest American artists of the twentieth century, a visionary who revolutionized photography and altered the course of contemporary art with her striking, now iconic images. Arbus comes startlingly to life on these pages, a strong-minded child of unnerving originality who grew into a formidable artist and forged an intimacy with her subjects that has inspired generations of artists. Arresting, unsettling, and poignant, her photographs stick in our minds. Why did these people fascinate her? And what was it about her that captivated them? It is impossible to understand the transfixing power of Arbus´s photographs without understanding her life story. Arthur Lubow draws on exclusive interviews with Arbus´s friends, lovers, and colleagues, on previously unknown letters, and on his own profound critical understanding of photography, to explore Arbus´s unique perspective. He deftly traces Arbus´s development from a wealthy, sexually precocious free spirit into first a successful New York fashion photographer, and then a singular artist who coaxed hidden truths from her subjects. Lubow reveals that Arbus´s profound need not only to see her subjects but to be seen by them drove her to forge unusually close bonds with these people, helping her discover the fantasies, pain, and heroism within each of them. Diane Arbus is the definitive biography of this unique, hugely influential artist. This magnificently absorbing, sensitive treatment of a singular personality brushes aside the clichés that have long surrounded Arbus and her work to capture a brilliant portrait of this seminal artist whose work has immeasurably shaped art and modern culture.Lubow´s Diane Arbus finally does justice to Arbus, and brings to life the story and art of one of the greatest American artists in history. Diane Arbus includes a 16-page black-and-white photo insert.

Poesies completes
€ 5.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Si l´on devait citer le poète qui a exercé l´influence la plus profonde sur la poésie du début du xxe siècle, il faudrait nommer Rimbaud. Avec plus de hardiesse encore que Baudelaire, il a étendu le champ d´exploration de la poésie. Avant lui, l´expérience poétique était principalement l´expérience de la création littéraire. Après lui, la poésie devient un moyen de connaissance. (...) C´est qu´il n´a pas hésité à se mettre en communication avec la part inconnaissable de lui-même. Il y a découvert un grand jeu d´images, fleurs éclatées, filles à lèvres d´orange, déluges et miracles, un jeu dont chaque figure ressemble à un message marqué d´un sceau incompréhensible et sacré. Dès lors, Rimbaud va libérer tous les phénomènes de l´inconscient, préparer les voies du surréalisme et créer, si l´on veut, un nouveau mystère dont les symboles resteront étrangers au merveilleux et au fantastique.Kléber Haedens

Rackham´s Color Illustrations for Wagner´s ´´Ri...
€ 14.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This edition of Rackham´s images, widely regarded as the greatest representations of Wagner´s drama, comprises 64 full-page color illustrations and 9 vignettes from ´´Siegfried, The Twilight of the Gods, The Rhinegold, ´´and ´´The Valkyrie.´´ ´´His pictures, which seemed to me then [aged 13] to be the very music made visible, plunged me a few fathoms deeper into my delight. I have seldom coveted anything as I coveted that book.´´ ? C.S. LewisBefore portraying Wagner´s ´´Ring,´´ Arthur Rackham (1867?1939) had become England´s leading illustrator through his interpretations of fairy and fantastic books: Grimm´s Fairy Tales, Rip van Winkle, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, A Midsummer-Night´s Dream. With his insight into elves, twisted oaks, and bearded heroes, Wagner was the logical step: with the ´´Ring,´´ Rackham brought his talent for ethereal watercolor and line into new realms of adult mythology.This edition reproduces, in full color, all 64 watercolor illustrations from Siegfried & The Twilight of the Gods (1911) and The Rhinegold & The Valkyrie (1912). The original English and American editions also contained black-and-white vignettes and tailpieces, a selection of which appear here: the original text, a dated English translation of the libretto, has been replaced by comprehensive descriptive captions and an introduction by James Spero.Rackham poured all his mature fancy into the ´´Ring.´´ The gnarled Nibelung Alberich sports with teasing Rhinemaidens, fiery Loge and lordly Wotan tussle with giants and serpents. An ecstatic Brünnhilde is finally consumed on Siegfried´s funeral pyre in perhaps the most successful representation of this scene anywhere, either graphically or theatrically. Wagner´s Teutonic forests and caves give Rackham free reign for his brooding, haunting nature backgrounds; characters, costumes, and all the tiny details are painted with such textual accuracy and empathy that today´s opera companies who wish to return to staging the ´´Ring´´ in the traditional manner turn to Rackham´s paintings for guidance.The painstaking reproduction of these artworks brings Arthur Rackham´s most heroic visions to the many collectors and admirers who cannot obtain the expensive out-of-print editions. With the aid of the clear captions, the Wagnerian cycle may be followed once again in its most time-honored and rich interpretation.
