Victoria Charles Tiffany victoria charles gothic art
A jeweler with an established reputation through the world, Louis Comfort Tiffany was the spearhead of the Art Nouveau movement in the United States. At a time and in a country in perpetual growth, Tiffany succeeded in elevating the decorative to the rank of fine art. Glass was the field of expertise of Tiffany’s workshops. There they developed groundbreaking techniques of treatment which produced beautiful effects on glass. Following the examples of Gallé or Daum, Tiffany made the most of this material: playing with colors, opaqueness and transparency… However, his most famous success is his lamps in mosaic of glass, similar to the cathedral’s stained glass window. Diving into this prism of colors, the author makes us dream again of the birth of this enduring company.

Victoria Charles L'Art roman victoria charles gothic art
Terme entré dans l’usage courant au cours de la première moitié du XIXe siècle, l’art roman distingue, en histoire de l’art, la période qui s’étend entre le début du XIe siècle jusqu’à la fin du XIIe siècle.

Par sa riche iconographie, au fil d’un texte captivant, cet ouvrage nous propose de redécouvrir cet art médiéval, encore souvent trop peu considéré face à l’art gothique qui lui succéda.

Victoria Charles Dalí victoria charles gothic art
Painter, designer, creator of bizarre objects, author and film maker, Dalí became the most famous of the Surrealists. Buñuel, Lorca, Picasso and Breton all had a great influence on his career. Dalí's film, An Andalusian Dog, produced with Buñuel, marked his official entry into the tightly-knit group of Parisian Surrealists, where he met Gala, the woman who became his lifelong companion and his source of inspiration. But his relationship soon deteriorated until his final rift with André Breton in 1939. Nevertheless Dalí's art remained surrealist in its philosophy and expression and a prime example of his freshness, humour and exploration of the subconscious mind. Throughout his life, Dalí was a genius at self-promotion, creating and maintaining his reputation as a mythical figure.

Victoria Charles Gaudí victoria charles gothic art
Architecte et designer barcelonais, Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) occupe une large place dans l’histoire de l’art espagnol. L’usage de la couleur, l’emploi de différents matériaux et l’introduction du mouvement dans ses constructions furent une innovation dans le domaine de l’architecture. Il laissa dans ses carnets de nombreuses réflexions à propos de son art telles que : « La couleur dans l’architecture doit être intense, logique et fertile. » Appuyée par de nombreuses photographies et de nombreux détails architecturaux, l’étude que mène l’auteur, Jeremy Roe, permet une approche du contexte de l’art barcelonais et introduit une minutieuse étude critique des constructions, objets et écrits du plus célèbre architecte barcelonais.

Victoria Charles Fleurs victoria charles gothic art
« Lorsque vous prenez une fleur dans les mains et que vous la regardez attentivement, elle devient votre univers le temps d'un instant. Je veux offrir cet univers aux autres, à tous ceux qui n'ont pas le temps de regarder une fleur. Je veux que les gens la voient, qu'ils le veuillent ou non », disait Georgia O'Keeffe. Les fleurs sont au centre de la plupart des natures mortes de notre art pictural. La palette de couleurs, la diversité des formes et des textures qu'elles offrent en font surtout un sujet de représentation idéal, se prêtant à toutes les techniques artistiques. Les fleurs ont inspiré bien des peintres, de Rubens à Dalí, sans oublier Renoir ou encore Matisse. Au cœur des œuvres, elles sont bien souvent devenues des chefs-d'œuvre.

Victoria Charles 1000 Portraits of Genius victoria charles gothic art
According to the predominant standards, a portrait should be a faithful representation of its model. However, this is not always the case. This gallery of 1,000 portraits illustrates how the genre has been transformed throughout history, and has proven itself to be much more complex than a simple imitation of reality. Beyond exhibiting the artist’s skill, the portrait must surpass the task of imitation, as just and precise as it may be, to translate both the intention of the artist as well as that of its patron, without betraying either’s wishes. Therefore, these silent witnesses, carefully selected in these pages, reveal more than faces of historic figures or anonymous subjects: they reveal a psychology more than an identity, illustrate an allegory, serve as political and religious propaganda, and embody the customs of their epochs. With its impressive number of masterpieces, biographies, and commentaries on works, this book presents and analyses different portraits, giving a reflection of the evolution of society, and above all the upheavals of a genre that has dramatically shaped the history of art.

Victoria Charles Rococo victoria charles gothic art
Deriving from the French word rocaille, in reference to the curved forms of shellfish, and the Italian barocco, the French created the term ‘Rococo’. Appearing at the beginning of the 18th century, it rapidly spread to the whole of Europe. Extravagant and light, Rococo responded perfectly to the spontaneity of the aristocracy of the time. In many aspects, this art was linked to its predecessor, Baroque, and it is thus also referred to as late Baroque style. While artists such as Tiepolo, Boucher and Reynolds carried the style to its apogee, the movement was often condemned for its superficiality. In the second half of the 18th century, Rococo began its decline. At the end of the century, facing the advent of Neoclassicism, it was plunged into obscurity. It had to wait nearly a century before art historians could restore it to the radiance of its golden age, which is rediscovered in this work by Klaus H. Carl and Victoria Charles.
