For 45 years it has remained unrivalled as an introduction to the whole subject, from the earliest cave paintings to the experimental art of today. Readers of all ages and backgrounds throughout the world have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating directly his own deep love of the works of art he describes." "The Story of Art owes its lasting popularity to the directness and simplicity of the writing, and also the author's skill in presenting a clear narrative. He describes his aim as 'to bring some intelligible order into the wealth of names, periods and styles which crowd the pages of more ambitious works', and using his insight into the psychology of the visual arts, he makes us see the history of art as 'a continuous weaving and changing of traditions in which each work refers to the past and points to the future, a living chain that still links our own time with the Pyramid age'. In its new format, the 16th edition of this classic work is set to continue its triumphant progress for future generations and to remain the first choice for all newcomers to art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

📒The European Union As Guardian Of Internet Privacy ✍ Hielke Hijmans
📝The European Union as Guardian of Internet Privacy Book Synopsis : This book examines the role of the EU in ensuring privacy and data protection on the internet. It describes and demonstrates the importance of privacy and data protection for our democracies and how the enjoyment of these rights is challenged by, particularly, big data and mass surveillance. The book takes the perspective of the EU mandate under Article 16 TFEU. It analyses the contributions of the specific actors and roles within the EU framework: the judiciary, the EU legislator, the independent supervisory authorities, the cooperation mechanisms of these authorities, as well as the EU as actor in the external domain. Article 16 TFEU enables the Court of the Justice of the EU to play its role as constitutional court and to set high standards for fundamental rights protection. It obliges the European Parliament and the Council to lay down legislation that encompasses all processing of personal data. It confirms control by independent supervisory authorities as an essential element of data protection and it gives the EU a strong mandate to act in the global arena. The analysis shows that EU powers can be successfully used in a legitimate and effective manner and that this subject could be a success story for the EU, in times of widespread euroskepsis. It demonstrates that the Member States remain important players in ensuring privacy and data protection. In order to be a success story, the key stakeholders should be prepared to go the extra mile, so it is argued in the book. The book is based on academic research for which the author received a double doctorate at the University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Brussels. It builds on a long inside experience within the European institutions, as well as within the community of data protection and data protection authorities. It is a must read in a time where the setting of EU privacy and data protection is changing dramatically, not only as a result of the rapidly evolving information society, but also because of important legal developments such as the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation. This book will appeal to all those who are in some way involved in making this regulation work. It will also appeal to people interested in the institutional framework of the European Union and in the role of the Union of promoting fundamental rights, also in the wider world.
📒The Story Of Art Workbook ✍ L. G. Williams
📝The Story of Art Workbook Book Synopsis : The Story Of Art Workbook is designed specifically to accompany the classic text, The Story of Art by E.H. Gombrich. This supplemental drawing workbook has roughly 400 assignments to help students get the most they can out of The Story of Art, and out of their art history and art appreciation courses. The workbook challenges students to undertake fun-to-do drawing excersises that help them experience and understand the concepts firsthand, before or after they've read about in the textbook. As a supplemental workbook, The Story Of Art Workbook uniquely addresses the most pressing paradox that currently exists in every college and university Art Appreciation and Introductory Art History classroom in the United States. Namely, the seminal visual principals, theories, and concepts in Art's history are still delivered solely through the same old, textual approach. This antiquated methodology remains to this very day, as distant, passive, and ineffectual as it was since its conception. After all, one cannot and should not expect the major achievements of the visual arts to be fully understood, grasped or appreciated by any means other than a direct, hands-on approach. The Story Of Art Workbook's various assignments are presented in the workbook in simple, contemporary terms and scenarios. The Table of Contents closely follows many versions of Gombrich's classic text, and is organized along the lines of a typical Art History and Art Appreciation course.

📒For The Sake Of Art ✍ Cynthia Mines
📝For the Sake of Art Book Synopsis : In the early decades of the 20th century, the small Kansas community of McPherson experienced such a renaissance of art and culture that the prestigious International Studio magazine proclaimed that per-capita art ownership there was higher than anywhere in the world. The man behind the movement was Carl Smalley, the son of a seed store owner whose passion for original art was fueled by a visit to the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. At the heart of the art oasis on the prairie was a friendship between Smalley and artist Birger Sandzen. Their collegial enthusiasm was the backbone of annual exhibitions that attracted more than half the population to see works by artists such as Rembrandt, Whistler, Manet, Joseph Pennell, Gustave Baumann, Robert Henri, George Bellows, Thomas Hart Benton and members of the Prairie Print Makers. School children and graduating classes collected money to buy original art, and the seeds sowed during that era can still be seen on the walls of the McPherson public schools as well as museums, colleges, office buildings, libraries and private collections.

📒The Story Of San Michele ✍ Axel Munthe
📝The Story of San Michele Book Synopsis : This ‘dream-laden and spooked’ (Marina Warner, London Review of Books) story is to many one of the best-loved books of the twentieth century. Munthe spent many years working as a doctor in Southern Italy, labouring unstintingly during typhus, cholera and earthquake disasters. It was during this period that he came across the ruined Tiberian villa of San Michele, perched high above the glittering Bay of Naples on Capri. With the help of Mastro Nicola and his three sons, and with only a charcoal sketch roughly drawn on a garden wall to guide them, Munthe devoted himself to rebuilding the house and chapel. Over five long summers they toiled under a sapphire-blue sky, their mad-cap project leading them to buried skeletons and ancient coins, and to hilarious encounters with a rich cast of vividly-drawn villagers. The Story of San Michele reverberates with the mesmerising hum of a long, hot Italian summer. Peopled with unforgettable characters, it is as brilliantly enjoyable and readable today as it was upon first publication. The book quickly became an international bestseller and has now been translated into more than 30 languages; it is today an established classic, and sales number in the millions.
