Synopsis: This title offers an insightful illustrated history of self-portraits by well-known artists from early examples in classical times through its flowering in the Renaissance to modern interpretations. This is the only volume to cover this subject in a lavish, large format HB In his fascinating survey, art historian, Omar Calabrese reveals that self-portraits through the ages are both a reflection of the artist and of the period in which the artist lived. Organized thematically, the author first presents a basic definition of the genre of the self-portrait. The next chapter focuses on the turning point for the establishment of the genre during the Renaissance when the status of the painter or sculptor was raised from artisan to artist and, as a result, portraits of the artist were considered worthwhile pictures. Among the 300 pictures featured here are examples by such artists as Albrecht Durer, Velazquez, Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun, Ingres, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Gainsborough, Matisse, James Ensor, Egon Schiele, Frida Kahlo, Man Ray, Henry Moore, Robert Rauschenberg, Norman Rockwell, and Roy Lichtenstein. This intriguing book is a fresh way to appreciate the history of art and to understand that a self-portrait is far more complex and meaningful than merely a portrait of the artist.

About the Author: Omarr Calabrese is a professor of art and semiotics at the University of Siena. He has also taught at Yale University, the Sorbonne, a university in Berlin and served as a curator for a number of television programs about art. He has written several books , including Neo-Baroque: A Sign of the Times (Princeton University Press) and edited Italian Style: Forms of Creativity (Skira) and other volumes.

Book Description Schon in einer altägyptischen Grabmalerei findet sich der Vorläufer eines Künstler-Selbstporträts, und im Mittelalter und der Renaissance erscheint der Maler manchmal versteckt in einer Menge oder als mythologische Figur. Das Ansehen wandelte sich vom Kunsthandwerker zum Künstler, Selbstporträts dienten nun dem Selbstverständnis, der Selbstbefragung und der Repräsentation. Einige Künstler betrieben das Genre bis zur Obsession, wie Rembrandt, van Gogh, Munch oder Dalí. In der zeitgenössischen Kunst kommt es manchmal zur Dekonstruktion, der Künstler versteckt sich, spielt Rollen oder persifliert sich selbst. In diesem Band wird die Geschichte des Künstler-Selbstporträts anhand von 300 Werken aufgefächert. Vertreten sind u.a. Albrecht Dürer, Velàzquez, Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun, Ingres, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Gainsborough, Matisse, James Ensor, Egon Schiele, Frida Kahlo, Man Ray, Henry Moore, Robert Rauschenberg, Norman Rockwell und Roy Lichtenstein. 26,5 x 32,5 cm, 392 S., zahlreiche farb. und s/w-Abb., geb.

Book Description Condition: New. The author defines the genre of the self-portrait as a manifestation of self-identity, providing examples from Egyptian tomb painting and pictures on medieval stained glass to modern times. He focuses on the turning point for the establishment of the form in the Renaissance, when the status of the painter or sculptor was raised from artisan to artist and, as a result, self-portraits were considered worthwhile pictures. At first, they were hidden in narrative painting: an artist would paint his image as part of a crowd scene, for example, or as a mythological figure. At the other extreme, once the form was accepted it was practiced by some artists -- Rembrandt, van Gogh, Munch and Dali, for instance -- as almost an obsession. The volume is magnificently illustrated. Seller Inventory # 3498
