BRUEGEL (40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION) GB

The life and times of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1526/30–1569) were marked by stark cultural conflict. He witnessed religious wars, the Duke of Alba’s brutal rule as governor of the Netherlands, and the palpable effects of the Inquisition. To this day, the Flemish artist remains shrouded in mystery. We know neither where nor exactly when he was born. But while early scholarship emphasized the vernacular character of his painting and graphic work, modern research has attached greater importance to its humanistic content. Starting out as a print designer for publisher Hieronymus Cock, Bruegel produced numerous print series that were distributed throughout Europe. These depicted vices and virtues alongside jolly peasant festivals and sweeping landscape panoramas. He then increasingly turned to painting, working for the cultural elite of Antwerp and Brussels. Rather than idealizing reality, he bravely confronted the issues of his day, addressing the horrors of religious warfare and taking a critical stand against the institution of the Church. To this end, Bruegel developed his own pictorial language of dissidence, lacing innocuous everyday scenes with subliminal statements in order to escape repercussions.

IMPRESIONISMO (BU) (HC-E)

La revolución de las pinceladas Los artistas olvidados del impresionismo Fue una escena de un puerto moteada y borrosa la que dio nombre al estilo. Cuando Impression, Sunrise (Impresión, Sol naciente), de Claude Monet, se expuso en abril de 1874, la crítica aprovechó el título de la obra y su representación estilística imprecisa de la luz y el movimiento en el agua para ridiculizar esta nueva tendencia artística impresionista. Como ha sucedido con muchos movimientos artísticos trascendentales a lo largo de la historia, la crítica recibió su merecido. Hoy en día, el impresionismo es uno de los firmes candidatos a ser el período pictórico favorito en todo el mundo. Con exposiciones taquilleras, subastas astronómicas y museos abarrotados, aquellas obras que se arrinconaron porque se consideraban incompletas o imprecisas hoy son apreciadas por su modo de evocar el tiempo y el espacio, así como por la habilidad artística de aplicar pinceladas rápidas en el lienzo.

MONET HC (E) (BU)

No other artist, apart from J. M. W. Turner, tried as hard as Claude Monet (1840–1926) to capture light itself on canvas. Of all the Impressionists, it was the man Cézanne called “only an eye, but my God what an eye!” who stayed true to the principle of absolute fidelity to the visual sensation, painting directly from the object. It could be said that Monet reinvented the possibilities of color. Whether it was through his early interest in Japanese prints, his time as a conscript in the dazzling light of Algeria, or his personal acquaintance with the major painters of the late 19th century, the work Monet produced throughout his long life would change forever the way we perceive both the natural world and its attendant phenomena. The high point of his explorations was the late series of water lilies, painted in his own garden at Giverny, which, in their approach toward almost total formlessness, are really the origin of abstract art. This biography does full justice to this most remarkable and profoundly influential artist, and offers numerous reproductions and archive photos alongside a detailed and insightful commentary.
