The first book on the work of a designer whose refined classical interiors are widely desired and emulated as the epitome of French style. Honored as one of the top designers by all the international design magazines and universally admired by design editors, Jean-Louis Deniot is in demand. His updated classical approach now graces interiors in Paris, the French countryside, Moscow, India, New York, Chicago, L.A., and beyond - and his legacy is already being compared to that of design greats such as Jacques Grange and Alberto Pinto. Deniot is an architect first, ensuring that the interior architecture of his rooms is harmonious before giving a neoclassical approach to the decor. He brings education, logic, and design history to his work, with one eye looking at the most refined style of French eighteenth century and one eye on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His mix is highly individual and includes contemporary art and custom-made furniture, yet his rooms always look comfortable and are never overly formal or trendy. This book demonstrates a new, sophisticated classical style that is changing the scene for international design and offering inspiration and ideas to decorators, homeowners, and antiques enthusiasts.
Судьбы кошки и человека переплелись давным-давно. Люди поклонялись кошкам как божествам и испытывали суеверный страх при виде светящихся во тьме кошачьих глаз, просили помощи в защите от грызунов и обожали как самых близких друзей. А художники и скульпторы не могли не восхищаться кошачьей грацией, которую они считали совершенной. В этом небольшом альбоме представлены "Кошачьи" экспонаты Эрмитажа: в древнеегипетской бронзе, европейской средневековой живописи, китайской и японской графике, русском лубке XVIII—XX веков в виде нэцкэ, игрушек и много другого.

Каждый человек может сказать о музее "мой Эрмитаж". Эрмитаж принадлежит всем, но у каждого он свой собственный: у каждого - свои значимые места, свои трогательные воспоминания, свои любимые легенды. Эрмитаж является частью жизни множества людей. Судьба Михаила Борисовича Пиотровского сложилась так, что после смерти Бориса Борисовича Пиотровского, его отца, который двадцать шесть лет был директором Эрмитажа, директором музея стал он сам, и в течение уже двадцати двух лет осуществляет то, что было задумано Борисом Борисовичем и его товарищами. Но Михаил Борисович Пиотровский не только директор Эрмитажа, он еще и его летописец. Так и была создана эта книга - история музея от его Главного Хранителя.

Life is but a dream: The complete works of the visionary painter Manet called him the greatest painter of all. Picasso was so inspired by hismasterpiece Las Meninas that he painted 44 variations of it. Monet, Renoir, and Degas were heavily influenced by the paintings of Philip IV's grand chamberlain. Francis Bacon famously painted a study of his portrait of Pope Innocent X. Indeed, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y Velazquez (1599-1660) was more than the most important painter of the Spanish Golden Age - he was considered a precursor to the Impressionists over two centuries before that movement came into being. This catalog raisonne brings together Velazquez's complete works - jaw-droppingly reproduced in extra-large format with a selection of delicious enlarged details - with insightful commentary on how his paintings give equal attention to all that they contain. To him, an old woman frying eggs or a buffoon was as important as a Pope or a King. For him, form was subservient to light and color; the brushstrokes were markers to help the viewers reconstruct each picture mentally - concepts adopted vehemently by the Impressionists. Velazquez's greatest talent was creating beauty from the grotesque, imbuing each subject with a human liveliness rarely seen on canvas. In its extensive detail and comparisons, Jose Lopez-Rey's book reveals the development of this vision. Things are or are not, they exist or vanish, in the same way that Calderon felt that life was like a dream. In the work of Velazquez, the language is everything. Thanks to the joint initiative of TASCHEN and Wildenstein, this exceptional publication features new photography of recently restored paintings, published here for the first time.
Born in 1979 in Leszno, Paulina Otylie Surys is a Polish fashion photographer based in London, UK. Influenced by her study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, she started to experiment with the photographic medium working on Polaroids, manipulating and hand-colouring them. She then completed her education in Photography at Middlesex University in London. Applying a mixture of toners, chemicals, inks and dry dyes, photography and painting merge in equal measure in her images. She employs a variety of vintage cameras, working with 35mm, medium and large format film, and uses a wide range of techniques such as tintype and the wet plate collodion processing. Surys' practice is inspired by an old and traditional form of colourizations that introduces limited colour into a black-and-white film. Inspired by mythological stories and Medieval sorcerers, alchemists and mystics, Surys’ work centres on creating surreal and unique situations that combine the world of reality with the domain of imagination, illusion and hallucination. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines such as VISION China, FIASCO, IDOL, DROME, Volt, Talk Be., VOGUE.com online, and recently, The British Journal of Photography (portfolio). Limbo is her first monographic album.
