Victoria Charles Baroque Art victoria charles gothic art
The Baroque period lasted from the beginning of the seventeenth century to the middle of the eighteenth century. Baroque art was artists’ response to the Catholic Church’s demand for solemn grandeur following the Council of Trent, and through its monumentality and grandiloquence it seduced the great European courts. Amongst the Baroque arts, architecture has, without doubt, left the greatest mark in Europe: the continent is dotted with magnificent Baroque churches and palaces, commissioned by patrons at the height of their power. The works of Gian Lorenzo Bernini of the Southern School and Peter Paul Rubens of the Northern School alone show the importance of this artistic period. Rich in images encompassing the arts of painting, sculpture and architecture, this work offers a complete insight into this passionate period in the history of art.

Victoria Charles La Sécession Viennoise victoria charles gothic art
« À chaque âge son art, à chaque art sa liberté. » Voila la devise de la Sécession viennoise, mouvement dissident (1892-1906), qui fut porté par une vingtaine d’artistes éclairés luttant contre l’académisme conservateur pétrifiant Vienne et tout l’empire austro-hongrois. Courant de l’Art nouveau, la Sécession, officiellement fondée en 1897 par Klimt, Moll et Hoffmann, ne fut pas une révolution artistique anonyme parmi tant d’autres. Contestataires par essence, les sécessionnistes viennois ont peint ce qu’on ne devait pas peindre : les frôlements, les baisers, les violences. Se définissant comme un art total sans contrainte politique ni commerciale, l’effervescence de ce mouvement toucha tous les artisans, architectes, et décorateurs. Dans cet ouvrage, peinture, sculpture et architecture sont confrontées par l’auteur pour souligner la richesse et la diversité du mouvement viennois.

Victoria Charles Bridges victoria charles gothic art
A bridge is a link between two worlds, a point of tension between two separate and often disparate locations. Free, belonging neither to one region or another, the bridge imposes upon the landscape and defies nature. Its existence embodies the will of mankind to construct these necessary bonds between people and places. A symbol of progress and innovation, the bridge, anonymous demonstration of the mastery and the durability of new techniques, is gradually becoming more and more light and fluid, constantly defying state-of-the-art technology. As veritable aesthetic creations, bridges appear today not only as examples of masterful engineering, but also as incredible works of art. With its magnificent photographs, this book invites the reader to rediscover these modern-day sculptures.

Victoria Charles 1000 Buddhas of Genius victoria charles gothic art
“All living beings are Buddhas and have wisdom and virtue within them.” (Buddha) Buddha ranks among the most depicted holy figures of the world – perhaps appearing more than Christ, a subject widely treated by Western artists. Venerated in all the nations of Asia, and even beyond, his image took form along the Silk Road, the birthplace of many schools of Buddhism. Indeed, the Buddhist religion recognises many Buddhas representing various traditions such as Buddhism of 'the Ancient Teaching' (Theravada), of 'the Great Vehicle' (Mahayana) and Tantric Buddhism (Varjrayana). A figure adored by all, Buddha has been depicted in every art form: sculpture, often of monumental size, like the now destroyed Buddhas of Bamyan, painting, and above all in countless cave murals, such as those of Ajanta in India or Dunhuang in China. Perfect for all those passionate about Asian art, from neophytes to Buddhists, this fascinating work invites the reader not only to discover or rediscover Buddha, his history, his codes, but also his innumerable faces through 1,000 representations selected from among the most beautiful works held in the world’s greatest museums.
