Glittering Images

Modern life is a sea of images. With so much visual data bombarding us-from personal devices to mass media-our brains must rapidly adapt to make sense of it all. Here to guide us is America´s premier intellectual provocateur, Camille Paglia. In these pages, Paglia returns to the subject that made her famous, situating our current visual environment within the epic scope of all of art history. With trademark audacity, Paglia tours through more than two dozen seminal paintings, sculptures, architectural styles, performance pieces, and digital art works that have transformed our world. Combining close analysis with historical context, she trains our eye to each image-from an Egyptian tomb to Jackson Pollock´s abstract Green Silver to Renée Cox´s daring performance piece Chillin´ with Liberty. And in her stunning conclusion, she declares the avant-garde tradition dead and film director George Lucas the world´s greatest living artist. Written with energy, erudition, and wit, Glittering Images will profoundly change the way we see.

Poolside with Slim Aarons
47,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Like its predecessors, ´´Once Upon a Time´´ and ´´A Place in the Sun´´, ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ offers images of jet-setters and the wealthy, of beautiful, glittering people living the glamorous life. Yet this new collection of stunning photographs of the rich and well-connected ´doing attractive things´ in their favourite playgrounds has a new twist. The main character is pools and everything that goes with them - magnificent, suntanned bodies, well-oiled skin, bikini-clad women, yachts, summer cocktails, sumptuous buffets, spectacular locations and most of all fun. ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ is not so much a Who´s Who of society, aristocracy and celebrity - although C. Z. Guest, Lily Pulitzer, Cheryl Tiegs, Peter Beard and many who have appeared in the previous books are here - as it is about leisure time and how the rich make use of it. This is a more intimate peek into very private lives, to which Slim Aarons was given unprecedented access in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. From the Caribbean to Italy and Mexico to Monaco, ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ whisks the reader away to an exclusive club where taste, style, luxury and grandeur prevail.

Desde las lujosas salas de baile de Manhattan hasta las batallas de la Primera Guerra Mundial, Danielle Steel nos transporta al mundo fascinante de una mujer de espíritu indómita que saca fuerzas de sus pérdidas y renace en medio de la adversidad. Annabelle Wirthington, de diecinueve años, nació rodeada de los privilegios y el glamour de la lata sociedad neoyorquina en una gran casa de la Quinta Avenida. Sin embargo, un día grisáceo de abril de 1912 todo cambió: el Titanic se hundió y su mundo también. Para olvidarse de sus tristezas, Annabelle se entrega a obras caritativas y a cuidar a los pobres y aquí se despierta su pasión por la medicina. Cuando su primer amor y lo que promete ser un matrimonio idílico también se convierte en cenizas, Annabelle se ve obligada a huir a Francia, un país en guerra donde tal vez podrá por fin dedicarse a su verdadera vocación: estudiar medicina, ayudar a los heridos y salvar vidas en la primera línea de batalla. Cuando termina la guerra, Annabelle comienza una nueva vida en París. Ahora es doctora y madre y su pasado en Nueva York queda lejos y casi olvidado hasta que un día un encuentro casual la enfrenta con todo lo que dejó atrás. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION From the glittering ballrooms of Manhattan to the fires of World War I, Danielle Steel takes us on an unforgettable journey in her new novel-a spellbinding tale of war, loss, history, and one woman´s unbreakable spirit. Nineteen-year-old Annabelle Worthington was born into a life of privilege, raised amid the glamour of New York society, with glorious homes on Fifth Avenue and in Newport, Rhode Island. But everything changed on a cold April day in 1912, when the sinking of the Titanic shattered her family and her privileged world forever. Finding strength within her grief, Annabelle pours herself into volunteer work, nursing the poor, igniting a passion for medicine that would shape the course of her life. But for Annabelle, first love, and a seemingly idyllic marriage, will soon bring more grief-this time caused by the secrets of the human heart. Betrayed, and pursued by a scandal she does not deserve, Annabelle flees New York for war-ravaged France, hoping to lose herself in a life of service. There, in the heart of the First World War, in a groundbreaking field hospital run by women, Annabelle finds her true calling, working as an ambulance medic on the front lines, studying medicine, saving lives. And when the war ends, Annabelle begins a new life in Paris-now a doctor, a mother, her past almost forgotten?until a fateful meeting opens her heart to the world she had left behind. Finding strength in the most unlikely of friendships, pulling together the broken fragments of her life, Annabelle will return to New York one more time-this time as a changed woman, a woman of substance, infused with life´s experience, building a future filled with hope? out of the rich soil of the past. Filled with breathtaking images and historical detail, Danielle Steel´s new novel introduces one of her most unique and fascinating characters: Annabelle Worthington, a remarkable woman, a good woman, a true survivor who triumphs against overwhelming odds. For Annabelle´s story is more than compelling fiction, it is a powerful celebration of life, dignity, and courage-and a testament to the human will to survive.
