9783791348186: Lovers in Art

Drawing on five centuries of artistic expression, this lushly illustrated and beautifully designed celebration of romance is the perfect keepsake for lovers young and old. How many ways can you paint a kiss? Ask Picasso, Lichtenstein, Toulouse-Lautrec, Klimt, and Fragonard. Rediscover mythology's great love stories through the works of Botticelli, Correggio, Titian, and Canova. Meet ordinary and extraordinary couples in paintings by Kahlo, Van Eyck, Rubens, Rembrandt, Freud, and Rossetti. These are just some of the bounty of artists collected in this glorious book, featuring brilliantly colored reproductions and love-inspired writings. Organized to show the progression of love from first meeting to marriage, this exquisite volume travels the centuries through various artistic traditions. The stories these artists tell are as varied as the works themselves: sentimental, tragic, intellectual, ironic, sensual, and comic. For lovers of art, or just lovers, this book gloriously illustrates the endless facets of love.

From the Publisher:

From every period and in every genre, romantic love has been the subject of great works of art. From a 15th century wedding portrait to the erotically charged sculpture of Jeff Koons, this collection of love-related art is both a survey of important works and a chronicle of love throughout history. Formal courting, illicit kisses, fervent couplings, unrequited passions, and domestic contentment are all captured here in works by van Eyck, Bruegel, Rembrandt, Fragonard, Rubens, Kahlo, Schiele, Klimt, Lichtenstein, and others. Each beautifully reproduced image is accompanied by a brief text that sheds light on the customs and mores of its time. In an amusing and illuminating essay, author Sabine Adler considers how courtship, marriage, and romance have evolved over history, and how they have been interpreted — and reinvented — by the world’s great artists. A wonderful gift for couples young and old, this treasury of romantic art communicates in loving graphic detail the feelings that words often cannot express.
