Le revers de la jaquette indique : "With the rise of museums in the 19th century, including the formation in 1824 of the National gallery in London, the art of the past became visible and accessible (in Victorian England) as never before. Inspired by the work of Sandro Botticelli, Jan van Eyck, Diego Velazquez, and others, British artists transformed contemporary art through a creative process that emphasized imitation and emulation. Elizabeth Prettejohn analyzes the ways in which the Old Masters were interpreted by artists, as well as critics, curators, and scholars, and argues that Victorian artists were, paradoxically, at their most original when they imitated the Old Masters most faithfully. Covering Victorian art from the Pre-Raphaelites through to the early modernists, she vividly traces the ways in wich artist such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, and William Orpen engaged with the art of the past to produce some of the greatest art of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries."

The Warm South

How the Mediterranean Shaped the British Imagination

An evocative exploration of the impact of the Mediterranean on British culture, ranging from the mid-eighteenth century to today Ever since the age of the Grand Tour in the eighteenth century, the Mediterranean has had a significant pull for Britons—including many painters and poets—who sought from it the inspiration, beauty, and fulfillment that evaded them at home. Referred to as “Magick Land” by one traveler, dreams about the Mediterranean, and responses to it, went on to shape the culture of a nation. Written by one of the world’s leading historians of the Mediterranean, this book charts how a new sensibility arose from British engagement with the Mediterranean, ancient and modern. Ranging from Byron’s poetry to Damien Hirst’s installations, Robert Holland shows that while idealized visions and aspirations often met with disillusionment and frustration, the Mediterranean also offered a notably insular society the chance to enrich itself through an imagined world of color, carnival, and sensual self-discovery.

Pater the Classicist

Pater the Classicist is the first book to address in detail Walter Pater's important contribution to the study of classical antiquity. Widely considered our greatest aesthetic critic and now best known as a precursor to modernist writers and post-modernist thinkers of the twentieth century, Pater was also a classicist by profession who taught at the University of Oxford. He wrote extensively about Greek art and philosophy, but also authored an influential historical novel set in ancient Rome, Marius the Epicurean, and a variety of short stories depicting the survival of classical culture in later ages. These superficially diverging interests actually went closely hand-in-hand: it can plausibly be asserted that it is the classical tradition in its broadest sense, including the question of how to understand its workings and temporalities, which forms Pater's principal subject as a writer. Although he initially approached antiquity obliquely, through the Italian Renaissance, for example, or the poetry of William Morris, later in his career he wrote more, and more directly, about the ancient world, and particularly about Greece, his first love. The essays in this collection cover all his major works and reveal a many-sided and inspirational figure, whose achievements helped to reinvigorate the classical studies that were the basis of the English educational system of the nineteenth century, and whose conception of Classics as cross-disciplinary and outward-looking can be a model to scholars and students today. They discuss his classicism generally, his fiction set in classical antiquity, his writings on Greek art and culture, and those on ancient philosophy, and in doing so they also illuminate Pater's position within his Victorian context, among figures such as J. A. Symonds, Henry Nettleship, Vernon Lee, and Jane Harrison, as well as his place in the study and reception of Classics today.

Die Geschichte des Kunsthandels im "Dritten Reich" zu schreiben, steht nicht nur aufgrund einer schwierigen Quellenlage vor besonderen Herausforderungen. Zwischen Komplizenschaft und Sabotage verstrickt sich das Handeln der Akteure in eklatante Widersprüche. Vom Alltagsgeschäft der Kunsthändler bis zum Widerstand gegen restriktive Vorschriften reicht das Themenspektrum, vom Auktionshandel bis zum Schwarz- und Schattenmarkt, von zahllosen Verbrechen nicht nur an jüdischen Sammlern und Händlern bis zum Kunstraub in den von deutschen Truppen besetzten Ländern. Kunst- und Wirtschaftshistoriker untersuchen in diesem Buch den Kunstmarkt und seine Mechanismen im Nationalsozialismus, die Rolle der Raubkunst sowie insbesondere moderner und "entarteter" Werke auf dem Kunstmarkt im "Dritten Reich".

"Das Erdbeben von 1509 wird die Fundamente der Brücke Michelangelos zerstören. Enard zeichnet ein gelungenes Künstlerporträt und füllt dabei die wenigen Wochen aus, die in der Biografie des Künstlers weiße Flecken geblieben waren."(3Sat) Eine wunderbare Parabel über die Religions- und Zivilisationskonflikte, eine Parabel von ungebrochener Aktualität: den Bruch zwischen diesen zwei Welten hat es nicht immer gegeben, und es muss ihn, vielleicht, nicht für immer geben.
