Pre-Raphaelites in Love - hardcover

1989, ISBN: 9780899194509

ID: 436305293

UK,slim 8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.NFINE./VG+.No owner inscrptn, no price-clip to dw/dj. Bright, clean, colour pictorial atwork by Edward Ardizzone illustrated upper wrap, with negligible shelf-wear and creasing to edges and corners.Couple of small closed tears towards top edges by head of spine/ backstrip and other light nicks along top+bottom edges.Spine/backstrip lightly sunned/faded - as usual/normal, with a colour coded(?), gummed,1" wide paper strip towards foot of same, partially obscuring end of Ardizzone's name and part of publisher colophon.Clean, publisher's original green cloth bds with bright, crisp, stamped gilt letters.Rear bd has a production fault in as much as a diagonal crease and wrinkling to pastedown and the cloth, towards the top edge, with bright, clean, plain white eps.Top edge slightly aged/tanned;fore-edge brighter with minimal spotting/foxing to edge of rear pages, contents bright, tight and generally clean.Slim 8vo,1-51pp [paginated], includes 11 poems, wth profuse b/w line illus by Ardizzone throughout the text and the book,plus  [unpaginated] half-title, b/w line illustrated title-page, dedication, contents list/table, and un-numbered last 5pps.  Prefabulous Animiles are unique James Reeves creations, at once ludicrous and lovable, incredible and insane.His poems about them have been widely hailed, read aloud, learned by heart, imitated, anthologised and set to music.The Osc, the forty-legged Snyke, the Amperzand, the Blether and the rest, first emerged from their strange habitats nearly twenty years ago, and have been in continuous demand ever since.And no wonder! Only last year (then 1975) Margery Fisher (in The Sunday Times) referred to 'those splendid Prefabulous Animiles who rejoice in some of the best made-up names that ever delighted children'.                    What less could Reeves and Ardizzone do, in the interests of science as well as art and poetry, than to delve once more into the archives of pre-historic biology and bring forth, in 'More Prefabulous Animiles', a new, intriguing and sometimes disquieting batch of these strange creatures? Once again verbal dexterity and humour are matched by the invention and ingenuity of the ideal artist.           Edward Jeffrey Irving Ardizzone, 1900-1979, worked as Edward Ardizzone.Born in Haiphong, China, the son of an employee of the Eastern Telegrah Company, the eldest of five children.He lived in the Far East until he was five and then moved with his family to England.Ardizzone lived in Ipswich until he was 14, 'and it was here', he wrote, 'that I learnt to know and love the little coastal steamers that I have drawn so often in the TIM books.' He attended evening classes in life drawing given by Bernard Meninsky at Westminster School of Art, while employed as a statistical clerk in London (1916-26).He worked freelance as an illustrator from 1926, achieving widespread recognition with his first children's book 'Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain (1936) the first of the famous TIM books.Served in the Royal Artillery (1939-40);Official War Artist (1940-45), noted for his war diaries.Taught illustration at Camberwell School of Art (1948-52).Worked for UNESCO in India (1952-53).Part-time tutor at the Royal College of Art School of Etching (1953-61).                                                                                      Ardizzone worked in watercolour, pen and ink, pencil and lithograph as a painter, printmaker, greetings card designer and illustrator of over 170 books, many of them his own.He was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal (1956) for 'Tim All Alone' and the Carnegie Medal (1955) and Hans Christian Andersen Medal (1956) with 'The Little Bookroom'.He particularly enjoyed illustrating poetry.He worked mainly from memory, early developing a freely drawn and unmistakable style that changed very little during the course of his long career.He acknowledged the influence of Bernard Meninsky on his work, and also the 19thC draughtsmen Daumier, Dore and Caldecott.His brother-in-law Gabriel White considered 'perhaps no artist since Randolph Caldecott has captured so easily the qualities essential in successful illustration for a child.Ardizzone's are bold and clear and tell the tale in the simplest lines and colours.Ardizzone was awarded the CBE (UK honour) in 1971.In 1973, a retrospective of his work was held at the V & A Museum in London.                                                                                                      Please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk, because of the value of this item, for correct, insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!                                                                              ., LONDON.WILLIAM HEINEMANN,1975, New York, NY Ticknor & Fields, 1989.

NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 468pp. Two Eight page sections of plates: one in color and one in black & white. Decorated Endpapers. Hardback with DJ. Fact that reads like fiction is my favorite genre - and this book is it: pet elephants in London apartments, exhumed beauties, a long married virgin and of course plenty of sex and drugs. Daly gives biographies of the artists with emphasis on their love lives and how that tied in with their paintings (the women discussed modeled for them even if they weren't models in general). Artists covered: Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Millais, William Holman Hunt, William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Each is given a biography with many reproductions of art works, and much much focus on the woman or women they loved. Although the book focuses on aspects of the artists lives which might tend toward lurid rather than serious, the stories interweave seemlessly with the paintings, so this book is anything but soft. For example Elizbeth Siddal became ill while poseing for Millais' Ophellia. She posed floating in a bathtub full of water while he depicted the famous drowning victim. She was Rossetti's favorite model and girl and the recuring illness influenced both their lives. He often painted her as Beatrice and in his mind saw him and her as playing out the doomed story of Dante and Beatrice. The biographies of each artist were constantly reinforced and tied to art works. Reproductions of art were small but good quality. There were examples of sketches and the single painting by Siddal, a self portrait. This is particularily interesting because she depicted herself as serious and severe while these famous artists depicted her as the epitome of beauty. This book is very readable and gave me more appreciation for the stories behind these paintings. I recommend reading this if it sounds at all interesting to you. Libraries should archive a copy because this is excellent art history with more emphasis on women than usual, and because the painting and sketches by Elizabeth Siddal are very rarely reproduced. There is also a good discussion of the founding and early history of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and some detail about the childhoods of each artist., Ticknor & Fields, 1989.

Pre-Raphaelites in Love - used book

ISBN: 0899194508

ID: 3075178

In 1848 a group of brilliant young artists banded together and dubbed themselves the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Believing that painting had declined since the time of Raphael, they decreed that every rose must be painted from a live flower and every face from a human being. Inevitably, their creative passions became tangled with romantic ones, as the artists--William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, and later, Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris--became involved with their models in tempestuous, sometimes tragic, relationships. Anyone who has seen the work of the Pre-Raphaelites has been struck by the dreamy, luminous women portrayed in the paintings. But who were these women? And what happened when these beautiful girls who consented to model--scandalous behavior at the time--found themselves idealized and adored by the men who painted them? In this ambitious and immensely readable book, author Gay Daly introduces us to these intriguing women: Elizabeth Siddal, the shopgirl so memorably painted as Ophelia and Beatrice, who finally married Rossetti after ten years of nerve-wracking courtship, and died at 32, a suicide. Annie Miller, the barmaid taken up as a "project" by the besotted Hunt, who turned the tables on her suitor when he failed to go through with their marriage. Effie Gray, who ultimately experienced happiness and sexual pleasure with Millais--but only after a six-year marriage to the art critic John Ruskin that was americas,art,arts music and photography,biographies,criticism,history,history and criticism,women in history,world Arts, Music & Photography, Ticknor & Fields
