Description : This Art Book with Foreword and annotated reproductions by Maria Tsaneva contains 185 selected drawings and sculptures of Auguste Rodin. Rodin is recognized worldwide for the exceptional authenticity of his anatomical sculptures. He strongly influenced twentieth century sculpture by his assemblage techniques and prepared the way for symbolism by adopting literary and mythological themes. It was the freedom and creativity along with his activation surfaces of sculptures through traces of his own touch and with his more open attitude toward bodily pose, sensual subject matter, and non-realistic surface – that marked Rodin's re-making of traditional 19th century sculptural techniques into the prototype for modern sculpture. Rodin's most original works departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory, modeled the human body with realism, and celebrated individual character and physicality.
Description : In this second book on Goshen Pass, Jack and Judy Witt combine forces again to revel in their love of each other and this land along Virginia's Maury River. They capture and share their joy and inspiration through personal essays and poetry while climbing and exploring the Pass. Full-color images of Judy's watercolor paintings and Jack's bronze sculpture transport the reader to their favorite haunts by the waterside, playing on light and fantasy, color and texture. Goshen comes alive in these pages, eager to speak to the reader through these two artists.
Description : This book is focused on work in the studio. It is a response to a retrospective survey of his half a century career, presented by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in January of 2008, as part of the museum's Southern Masters Series.
