This pioneering two-volume biography, first published in 1862, explores the genius of the groundbreaking Romantic landscape and historical painter J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851).

The Life of J. M. W. Turner 2 Volume Set: Founded on Letters and Papers Furnished by his Friends and Fellow Academicians
This pioneering two-volume biography, first published in 1862, explores the genius of the groundbreaking Romantic landscape and historical painter J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851). As both journalist and historian, author Walter Thornbury (1828-76) has a light touch, yet he draws on a wide range of correspondence, sketchbooks, watercolours and etchings to give a detailed picture of Turner's artistic development and connections, and his increasingly eccentric character. Volume 1 traces the artist's progress from humble cockney beginnings to his establishment as a Royal Academician at the heart of the nineteenth-century art world. Volume 2 fills out the record by detailing the artist's relationships with patrons such as Lord Egremont of Petworth House, and such fellow Royal Academicians as the sculptor Sir Francis Chantrey. Advised by Ruskin not to try to 'mask the dark side' of his subject, Thornbury presents a rounded but still admiring picture of his hero.

My Autobiography and Reminiscences 3 Volume Set
The celebrated Victorian narrative painter William Powell Frith (1819-1909) was a born raconteur. His two-volume autobiography of 1887 ran to three editions in the same year. The third edition is reissued here, together with its supplementary volume of 1888. Frith was an ideal commentator on his age. He never lost his early interest in literary and historical subjects, and moved in the highest artistic and literary circles. Yet he also saw himself as a man of the people. His most famous works were his 'modern-life' panoramas, Ramsgate Sands (1854), Derby Day (1858) and The Railway Station (1862). Discussing such projects, he reflects on everything from costume to portraiture, art dealers to female artists, and even picture frames.

Clergyman, schoolmaster and writer on aesthetics, William Gilpin (1724-1804) is best known for his works on the picturesque (many of which are also reissued in this series). Moving in 1777 to become vicar of Boldre, Hampshire, he was able to endow two schools there with income from his successful writings. He defined 'picturesque' as 'a term expressive of that peculiar kind of beauty, which is agreeable in a picture'. This two-volume work on forest trees, inspired by his New Forest home, was published in 1791. In his dedicatory address to his patron, William Mitford, Gilpin observes that his earlier experiences of the picturesque had been in mountainous or hilly areas; but in his walks and rides in the forest, he had become fascinated by the beauty of trees. In Volume 1 he discusses different forests and tree species, and in Volume 2 specific picturesque locations in the New Forest.

This four-volume work by Gustav Friedrich Waagen (1794-1868), edited and translated by Lady Eastlake (1809-93), was published between 1854 and 1857. As Waagen explains in his preface to the first volume, he had previously published an account of his experiences on his first visit to Britain in 1835, but this new and longer work was addressed primarily to a British audience. It also differs in that the earlier work was more of a general travelogue, whereas these volumes, after an introductory essay, provide a more detailed catalogue - albeit in epistolary form - of works of art in public and private collections. Waagen (along with Johann David Passavant, whose work is also reissued in this series) was crucial to the adoption in Britain of the new approach to art history pioneered by German scholars, and his work is still consulted on matters of provenance and quality.

The most accomplished female painter of her age, Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun (1755-1842) is best remembered for her many portraits of Queen Marie Antoinette of France. Her two-volume autobiography was published in France in 1835-7, and this English version (of which the translator is unknown) in 1879. It begins with a series of ten letters to a Russian friend, Princess Kourakin, describing her family and early life, her artistic training, and her rise to the position of portraitist to the queen. The letters end with the Revolution and Vigee-Lebrun's flight abroad: the 'souvenirs' which follow describe her years of exile and her eventual return to France. Volume 1 ends with her staying in Vienna, and Volume 2 covers an extended period in Russia, and a visit to England, before she finally settled again in Paris in about 1810. Throughout her life, she supported herself and her family by her painting.

Sacred and Legendary Art 2 Volume Set
Published in 1848, this two-volume work was received with great praise. During a celebrated career, Anna Brownell Jameson (1794-1860) produced Shakespeare criticism, travel writing, biography, and art history, and was admired by contemporaries such as Mary Shelley and Thomas Carlyle. Taking an aesthetic rather than religious approach, the work is a study of the legends represented in Western art of the Middle Ages, ordered taxonomically. Though Jameson is considered the first professional female art critic, this is a reductive label; she was, rather, one of the great art critics of her age and her work is still of importance to art historians. The volumes are richly illustrated with reproductions of woodcuts and etchings.

The Rossettis were one of the most remarkable and talented families in Victorian Britain. Of the two parents and three siblings, Dante Gabriel (1828-82) and Christina (1830-94) stood out, but throughout their lives they remained a tightly-knit unit. William Michael (1829-1919), who published this two-volume work in 1895, was the family record keeper and in the memoir of his brother we have an unmatched account of the family dynamic. He was not always candid about his brother's affairs but his biography is unparalleled for its fresh directness. Unlike all subsequent biographers, William wrote from the inside, and even if he was unable to tell the whole story, the intimate details of the day-to-day life of the great painter and poet have about them the ring of truth and authenticity. Volume 1 contains William's sympathetic memoir, while Volume 2 contains hundreds of Dante's letters to his family.

Alexander Lindsay (1812-80) was the head of an aristocratic family who owned vast coalfields in Lancashire, generating enormous wealth. Educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, he spent the majority of his time travelling in Italy, collecting, and writing on a variety of subjects, including art, the Indo-Aryan race and the Etruscans. This important work, published in three volumes in 1847, surveys Christian painting and sculpture. Addressing Romance literature of the Middle Ages, iconography and legends of the saints, the book's historical narrative is infused with the author's strong moral approach to the subject. Though derided by John Ruskin, the work strongly influenced aristocratic collecting, and remains relevant to readers interested in the Victorian construction of morals and artistic taste.

William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) chronicled the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in this well-illustrated two-volume memoir of 1905, controversially presenting himself as the movement's founding father. Popular when first published, it illuminates the search for authenticity of treatment and depth of meaning in his own work and that of Millais, Rossetti and their circle. Stressing the contributions of himself and Millais, Hunt sets out to defend the Brotherhood's ideals, from which he never departed. After his success with The Light of the World, he survived exotic and dangerous travels to create some of the most memorable paintings of the age, such as The Scapegoat (mostly painted by the Dead Sea with a gun at hand) and The Lady of Shalott. The volumes cover the coming together of Millais, Rossetti and their circle, Ruskin's influence, Hunt's journeys to Europe and the Holy Land, his unconventional remarriage and later masterpieces. A polemical 'Retrospect' reasserts the movement's principles.

The Life of Sir David Wilkie 3 Volume Set: With his Journals, Tours, and Critical Remarks on Works of Art
Sir David Wilkie (1785-1841) is often called the first truly international British artist. This three-volume biography, published in 1843, two years after Wilkie's sudden death while on a tour of the Mediterranean, and containing extracts from his journals and letters, remains an indispensable source for his life and works. Born in Scotland, Wilkie became a student at the Royal Academy in 1805, and in the following years the uncompromising realism of his scenes from rural life made his name known and attracted royal patronage: he was appointed 'the King's Limner in Scotland' by George IV. Travels in Europe and the Middle East enabled the study both of Old Masters and of the landscapes which had inspired them. This work was compiled by his friend, the poet and critic Allan Cunningham (1784-1842), who himself died shortly after correcting the proofs: it was seen through the press by his son.

The Sketchnote Workbook comes with a 2+ hour companion video that brings the ideas you read about in the book to life. Mike takes you on the road with him to various locations to show you first-hand how to use sketchnotes to generate ideas, document processes, map out projects, learn new languages, create visual to-do lists, and capture the everyday experiences that mean the most to you-whether it's a trip, a meal, or an episode of your favorite TV show.

Il libro vuole saldare didattica e divulgazione su un tema di grande fascino come quello dei rapporti tra la matematica e l'espressione artistica cercando di andare oltre alle ovvieta che spesso circondano questo argomento, alle facili metafore, a esoterici misteri, con l'obiettivo di fornire un quadro concettuale matematico per quanto possibile rigoroso, accessibile a una cultura liceale, isolando quei temi per i quali non sia pretestuoso l'intreccio tra matematica e arte. Il Cd che accompagna il testo raccoglie il materiale didattico prodotto nella attivita laboratoriale con gli studenti: schede di lavoro, animazioni, film, pagine di geometria dinamica, e puo essere utilmente utilizzato da chi intenda riproporre nel proprio contesto didattico questa esperienza.

Clergyman, schoolmaster and writer on aesthetics, William Gilpin (1724-1804) is best known for his works on the picturesque. In his Essay on Prints, published in 1768 and reissued in this series, he defined picturesque as 'a term expressive of that peculiar kind of beauty, which is agreeable in a picture'. First published in 1789, this two-volume work forms part of a series which records his reflections on the picturesque across British landscapes. It traces the journey he made in 1776, equipped with notebook and sketching materials, exploring the landscape of the Scottish Highlands via northern England, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Reproductions of his pen-and-wash drawings are included. The companion volumes of Gilpin's Observations on other parts of Britain are also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. Volume 1 takes in such notable sites as the Grampian Mountains and Glencoe, while Volume 2 includes discussion of Loch Lomond and Dumbarton Rock.

Life of Benjamin Robert Haydon, Historical Painter 3 Volume Set: From his Autobiography and Journals
Before the painter Benjamin Robert Haydon (1786-1846) committed suicide, he had left instructions that an account of his life should be published, using his autobiography up to 1820 and his letters and journals for the rest. The writer and dramatist Tom Taylor (1817-80) took on the editing, and the three-volume work was published in 1853. (The slightly enlarged second edition, also of 1853, is reissued here.) Haydon was a history painter at a time when that genre was perceived as the greatest form of the art, and his friends included Wordsworth, Keats, Shelley, Charles Lamb, Hazlitt and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. However, he was constantly in financial difficulties, and in later life a sense of failure seems to have turned into outright paranoia. Volume 1 covers Haydon's life until the end of his autobiography in 1820; Volumes 2 and 3, from his journals, continue the narrative up to his death.
