Lucian Freud. Portraits
Hirmer 2020, ISBN: 9783777439716
1932руб Купить
One of the foremost figurative artists working today, Lucian Freud has redefined portraiture and the nude through his unblinking scrutiny of the human form. And while most are familiar with Freud’s thickly impasted paintings, few realize how integral etching has become to his practice. Presenting an exceptional overview of Freud’s works on paper over his more than six-decade career, this oversized volume highlights the artist’s unconventional approach to the medium. Standing the copper etching plate upright on the easel, Freud treats the plate like a canvas as he depicts his sitters-very often friends, family members, or fellow artists-through meticulous networks of finely etched lines. Among Freud’s most notable trademarks is his tendency to dramatically crop figures and then isolate them against empty backgrounds, achieving through this juxtaposition a startling sense of psychological tension and formal abstraction. Freud is one of the most widely acclaimed British artists of our time and, with plentiful illustrations and an introduction by celebrated curator Norman Rosenthal, Lucian Freud: Portraits brings Freud’s lesser-known etchings deservedly to the forefront.
 
The Collector. The Story of Sergei Shchukin and His Lost Masterpieces
Yale University Press 2020, ISBN: 9780300234770
4702руб Купить
A fascinating life of Sergei Shchukin, the great collector who changed the face of Russia’s art world. Sergei Shchukin was a highly successful textiles merchant in the latter half of the nineteenth century, but he also had a great eye for beauty. He was one of the first to appreciate the qualities of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists and to acquire works by Cezanne, Matisse, and Picasso. A trailblazer in the Russian art world, Shchukin and his collection shocked, provoked, and inspired awe, ridicule, and derision among his contemporaries. This is the first English-language biography of Sergei Shchukin, written by art historian Natalya Semenova and adapted by Shchukin’s grandson Andre Delocque. Featuring personal diary entries, correspondence, interviews, and archival research, it brings to light the life of a man who has hitherto remained in the shadows, and shows how despite his controversial reputation, he opened his collection to the public, inspiring a future generation of artists and changing the face of the Russian art world.
 
Soviet Signs and Street Relics, Guilbeau Jason
Fuel 2020, ISBN: 9781916218406
4219руб Купить
Russia’s forgotten world of avant-garde public signage?the latest in Fuel’s collectible Soviet series For this volume, French photographer Jason Guilbeau has used Google Street View to virtually navigate Russia and the former USSR, searching for examples of a forgotten Soviet empire. The subjects of these unlikely photographs are incidental to the purpose of Google Street View?captured by serendipity, rather than design, they are accorded a common vernacular. Once found, Guilbeau strips the images of their practical use by removing the navigational markers, transforming them according to his own vision. From remote rural roadsides to densely populated cities, the photographs reveal traces of history in plain sight: a brutalist hammer and sickle stands in a remote field; a jet fighter is anchored to the ground by its concrete exhaust plume; a skeletal tractor sits on a cast-iron platform; a village sign resembles a constructivist sculpture. Passersby seem oblivious to these objects. Relinquished by the present they have become part of the composition of everyday life, too distant in time and too ubiquitous in nature to be recorded by anything other than an indiscriminate automaton. This collection of photographs portrays a surreal reality: it is a document of a vanishing era, captured by an omniscient technology that is continually deleting and replenishing itself?an inadvertent definition of Russia today.
 
Turned On. Science, Sex and Robots
1448руб Купить
The idea of the seductive sex robot is the stuff of myth, legend and science fiction. From the myth of Laodamia in Ancient Greece to twenty-first century shows such as Westworld, robots in human form have captured our imagination, our hopes and our fears. But beyond the fantasies there are real and fundamental questions about our relationship with technology as it moves into the realm of robotics. Turned On explores how the emerging and future development of sexual companion robots might affect us and the society in which we live. It explores the social changes arising from emerging technologies, and our relationships with the machines that someday may care for us and about us. Sex robots are here, and here to stay, and more are coming. Computer scientist and sex-robot expert Kate Devlin is our guide as we seek to understand how this technology is developing. From robots in Greek myth and the fantastical automata of the Middle Ages through to the sentient machines of the future that embody the prominent AI debate, she explores the ’modern’ robot versus the robot servants we were promised by twentieth century sci-fi, and delves into the psychological effects of the technology, and issues raised around gender politics, diversity, surveillance and violence. This book answers all the questions you’ve ever had about sex robots, as well as all the ones you haven’t yet thought of.
