Everything you always wanted to know about oil painting...but were afraid to ask. Or maybe you weren't afraid--maybe you just didn't know what to ask or where to start. In The Oil Painting Course You've Always Wanted, author Kathleen Staiger presents crystal clear, step-by-step lessons that build to reinforce learning. Brush control, creating the illusion of three dimensions, foolproof color mixing, still-life painting, landscapes, and portraits--every topic is covered in clear text, diagrams, illustrations, exercises, and demonstrations. Staiger has taught oil painting for more than thirty-five years; many of her students are now exhibiting and selling their paintings. Everyone from beginning hobby painters, to art students, to BFA graduates has questions about oil painting. Here at last are the answers!
Based upon the author's own successful workshops, Drawing for the Absolute and Utter Beginner helps new artists create competent, often eloquent drawings. A series of progressive lessons demonstrates such essential skills as recording edges, creating dimension, adding accuracy, developing value, balancing compositional elements, and drawing the human face, both frontal and profile views. Step by step, readers learn how to create a reasonable likeness of an object and give it spatial depth using such simple black-and-white mediums as pens, pencils, charcoal, and graphite wash. Inspirational examples and tips for success from beginning students who have worked on the same material confirm readers' successes, and allow readers to consider the advice and impressions of others at the same level.

Cv/VAR 156 presents a study by Anne Blood of the pioneering artist Kurt Schwitters (b. June 20, 1887, Hannover, d. January 8, 1948 Kendal) which reviews the exhibition Kurt Schwitters in Britain at Tate Britain, January to May 2013. The author focuses on the 'Merzbarn', a late work created in a barn at Elterwater, Cumbria in 1947, made in the last year of his life. The 'Merzbarn' is a complex internal sculpture integrated into the building used by permission of the owner Harry Pierce, who had commissioned a portrait by the artist. The unfinished but eloquent work proved to be a forerunner of modern pathways of art and installation, and added to Schwitters' seminal influence on future artists.Anne Blood gained a Master of Art History (MA) at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London. She is the Assistant Editor at The Burlington Magazine.
The essays by Edward Lucie-Smith and James Cahill explore the development of the Pre-Raphaelite movement in the mid 19th century: a flowering of new voices that produced works which figure amongst the most enduring and generally popular in British art.
The eminent writer and critic, Edward Lucie-Smith contributes a study of the Brotherhood's formation by seven artists, their inter-connection and absorption by the establishment of the time; their effect on the French School, Symbolism, the Aesthetic Movement and Surrealism.
James Cahill has a special interest in the movement, having studied Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt. He reviews a major exhibition of 180 works at Tate Britain presented from September to January 2012-13.
A lavishly illustrated, witty, and original look at the awesome power of the political cartoon throughout history to enrage, provoke, and amuse. As a former editor of The New York Times Magazine and the longtime editor of The Nation, Victor S. Navasky knows just how transformative--and incendiary--cartoons can be. Here Navasky guides readers through some of the greatest cartoons ever created, including those by George Grosz, David Levine, Herblock, Honoré Daumier, and Ralph Steadman. He recounts how cartoonists and caricaturists have been censored, threatened, incarcerated, and even murdered for their art, and asks what makes this art form, too often dismissed as trivial, so uniquely poised to affect our minds and our hearts.Drawing on his own encounters with would-be censors, interviews with cartoonists, and historical archives from cartoon museums across the globe, Navasky examines the political cartoon as both art and polemic over the centuries. We see afresh images most celebrated for their artistic merit (Picasso's Guernica, Goya's "Duendecitos"), images that provoked outrage (the 2008 Barry Blitt New Yorker cover, which depicted the Obamas as a Muslim and a Black Power militant fist-bumping in the Oval Office), and those that have dictated public discourse (Herblock’s defining portraits of McCarthyism, the Nazi periodical Der Stürmer’s anti-Semitic caricatures). Navasky ties together these and other superlative genre examples to reveal how political cartoons have been not only capturing the zeitgeist throughout history but shaping it as well--and how the most powerful cartoons retain the ability to shock, gall, and inspire long after their creation.Here Victor S. Navasky brilliantly illuminates the true power of one of our most enduringly vital forms of artistic expression.
