📒The Vanishing Man ✍ Laura Cumming
📝The Vanishing Man Book Synopsis : *BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week* "The Vanishing Man is a riveting detective story and a brilliant reconstruction of an art controversy, but it is also a homage to the art of VelÃ¡zquez, written by a critic who remains spellbound by his genius, as readers will be spellbound by this book" - Colm TÃ³ibÃn In 1845, a Reading bookseller named John Snare came across the dirt-blackened portrait of a prince at a country house auction. Suspecting that it might be a long-lost VelÃ¡zquez, he bought the picture and set out to discover its strange history. When Laura Cumming stumbled on a startling trial involving John Snare, it sent her on a search of her own. At first she was pursuing the picture, and the life and work of the elusive painter, but then she found herself following the booksellerâe(tm)s fortunes too âe" from London to Edinburgh to nineteenth-century New York, from fame to ruin and exile. An innovative fusion of detection and biography, this book shows how and why great works of art can affect us, even to the point of mania. And on the trail of John Snare, Cumming makes a surprising discovery of her own. But most movingly, The Vanishing Man is an eloquent and passionate homage to the Spanish master VelÃ¡zquez, bringing us closer to the creation and appreciation of his works than ever before.
📒The Vanishing Vel Zquez ✍ Laura Cumming
📝The Vanishing Vel zquez Book Synopsis : “As compelling and entertaining as a detective novel” (The Economist), the incredible true story—part art history and part mystery—of a Velázquez portrait that went missing and the obsessed nineteenth-century bookseller determined to prove he had found it. When John Snare, a nineteenth century provincial bookseller, traveled to a liquidation auction, he found a vivid portrait of King Charles I that defied any explanation. The Charles of the painting was young—too young to be king—and yet also too young to be painted by the Flemish painter to whom the piece was attributed. Snare had found something incredible—but what? His research brought him to Diego Velázquez, whose long-lost portrait of Prince Charles has eluded art experts for generations. Velázquez (1599–1660) was the official painter of the Madrid court, during the time the Spanish Empire teetered on the edge of collapse. When Prince Charles of England—a man wealthy enough to help turn Spain’s fortunes—proposed a marriage with a Spanish princess, he allowed just a few hours to sit for his portrait, and Snare believed only Velázquez could have been the artist of choice. But in making his theory public, Snare was ostracized and forced to choose, like Velázquez himself, between art and family. A thrilling investigation into the complex meaning of authenticity and the unshakable determination that drives both artists and collectors of their work, The Vanishing Velázquez is a “brilliant” (The Atlantic) tale of mystery and detection, of tragic mishaps and mistaken identities, of class, politics, snobbery, crime, and almost farcical accident that reveals how one historic masterpiece was crafted and lost, and how far one man would go to redeem it. Laura Cumming’s book is “sumptuous...A gleaming work of someone at the peak of her craft” (The New York Times).

Cumming entreteje las dos historias -la de Snare y la de Vel�zquez- con tal sutileza que se iluminan entre s� de manera sorprendente.� Mark Hudson, The Daily Telegraph �Una historia extraordinaria. Este estupendo libro es muchas cosas, un estudio de la obsesi�n, un canto de alabanza a un artista de genio, una historia de detectives y, para el autor, un exorcismo de la pena.� Honor Clerk, The Spectator ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A thrilling investigation into the complex meaning of authenticity and the unshakable determination that drives both artists and collectors of their work, The Vanishing Vel�zquez is a "brilliant” (The Atlantic) tale of mystery and detection, of tragic mishaps and mistaken identities, of class, politics, snobbery, crime, and almost farcical accident that reveals how one historic masterpiece was crafted and lost, and how far one man would go to redeem it.

📒Velzquez ✍ José López-Rey
📝Velzquez Book Synopsis : Life is but a dream: The complete works of the visionary painter Manet called him “the greatest painter of all.” Picasso was so inspired by hismasterpiece Las Meninas that he painted 44 variations of it. Monet, Renoir, and Degas were heavily influenced by the paintings of Philip IV's grand chamberlain. Francis Bacon famously painted a study of his portrait of Pope Innocent X. Indeed, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (1599–1660) was more than the most important painter of the Spanish Golden Age—he was considered a precursor to the Impressionists over two centuries before that movement came into being. This catalog raisonné brings together Velázquez's complete works—jaw-droppingly reproduced in extra-large format with a selection of delicious enlarged details—with insightful commentary on how his paintings give equal attention to all that they contain. To him, an old woman frying eggs or a buffoon was as important as a Pope or a King. For him, form was subservient to light and color; the brushstrokes were markers to help the viewers reconstruct each picture mentally—concepts adopted vehemently by the Impressionists. Velázquez's greatest talent was creating beauty from the grotesque, imbuing each subject with a human liveliness rarely seen on canvas. In its extensive detail and comparisons, José López-Rey's book reveals the development of this vision. Things are or are not, they exist or vanish, in the same way that Calderón felt that life was like a dream. In the work of Velázquez, the language is everything. Thanks to the joint initiative of TASCHEN and Wildenstein, this exceptional publication features new photography of recently restored paintings, published here for the first time.

📒Hideous Progeny ✍ Angela M. Smith
📝Hideous Progeny Book Synopsis : Twisted bodies, deformed faces, aberrant behavior, and abnormal desires characterized the hideous creatures of classic Hollywood horror, which thrilled audiences with their sheer grotesqueness. Most critics have interpreted such traits as symptoms of sexual repression, or as metaphors for other kinds of marginalized identities, but Angela M. Smith conducts a richer investigation into the period's social and cultural preoccupations. Presenting an altogether different reading, she finds in the narrative and spectacle of classic 1930s horror a fascination with eugenics and physical and cognitive debility, heightened by viewers' own desire for visions of vulnerability and transformation.

📒 ✍ Джулиан Барнс
📝 Book Synopsis : Впервые на русском — новейшее сочинение лауреата Букеровской премии Джулиана Барнса, автора таких международных бестселлеров, как «Англия, Англия», «Попугай Флобера», «Любовь и так далее», «Предчувствие конца» и многих других. На этот раз «однозначно самый изящный стилист и самый непредсказуемый мастер всех мыслимых литературных форм» обращается к жизни Дмитрия Шостаковича, причем в юбилейный год: в сентябре 2016-го весь мир будет отмечать 110 лет со дня рождения великого русского композитора. Впрочем, написание беллетризованной биографии волнует Барнса меньше всего, и метит он гораздо выше: имея как художник лицензию на любые фантазии, влюбленный в русскую литературу и отлично владея контекстом, он выстраивает свое сооружение на зыбкой почве советской истории, полной умолчания и полуправд…
