Vibrant Metropolis: 88 Lithographs
George W. Bellows
0486423042
December 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
George W. Bellows was among the most popular artists of the Ashcan School, a brilliant group of realist painters and illustrators whose bold technique and gritty subject matter embodied the vibrancy, vitality, and variety of the booming early 20th-century American cities. While many books cover Bellows' paintings, few focus on his lithographs, an art form in which he excelled and an understanding of which is crucial to a full appreciation of his work. This handsome new volume is an original selection of 88 of his best lithographs depicting a wide array of subjects, from portraits and nudes to street life and prize fighting. Brilliantly executed and richly evocative, these prints display all the qualities that have earned Bellows an enduring place among the major artists of his epoch. Just as powerful and exciting as...

In Praise of Nepotism: A History of Family Enterprise from King David to George W. Bush
Adam Bellow
0385493894
July 2004
Paperback
·
 
Review
“Nepotism is widely condemned yet even more widely practiced. Adam Bellow shows why this is so, and he makes a fascinating and well-researched argument that this is not necessarily a bad thing.”
-Walter Isaacson, author of Kissinger: A Life and former chairman of CNN and managing editor of Time

“Some features of human nature, like aggression and adultery, get a consistently bad press but remain stubbornly persistent. Nepotism, likewise, is universally condemned but seems just as ineradicable. Adam Bellow explains to us why we are so addicted to what we so deplore, and does so in plain English with convincing scholarship. He brings together biology and history in a way that is intelligible to the general reader and challenging to the discipline-bound professional. Nepotism has never...

Book Description
Back in print in a larger format: A delightful tour through a very special "museum" in which the whole history of art has been sent back to school.We've all heard of the School of Paris and the New York School and the Siennese School. Here George Deem has reimagined and repainted the whole history of art as a succession of schoolrooms.In Hudson River School a row of school desks looks out on a ravishing Hudson River view that might have been painted by Frederick Church. In fact, in one of Deem's witty references, the view is the one seen from Olana, the home of Church. In Ashcan School, the schoolroom includes ashcans and laundry lines, while several of the desks have been knocked about by battling boxers, exported from George Bellows.From School of Gauguin to School of Modigliani to Bauhaus School, each schoolroom...


Bellowing in the Common
Karl E. Petersen
1573831409
August 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Bellowing in the Common is Karl Petersen's first book. This collection "bellows" on behalf of the unheard things and people. Unheard and unseen, because they are too ordinary and common for human perception. His poetry shows how the mundane -- whether it be a boat rocking at the dock or a garden squash -- often rings with a voice louder and more startling than the extraordinary, if only we have ears to hear. Karl Petersen hears a bellowing in the common and, with a true poet's vocation, awakens us with new ears to the same old tunes.

1922. Seven chapters in the life of another fool sentimentalist, a story, magically told, touching all the chords of life. Donn Byrne tells a story of things as they were almost within the memory of living men, of some things that will be the same in the longest memory of men now living-of the days of the last of the clipper ships, and of a lad that sailed one, and the strange thing that was his life, and of the women who made the epochs in it. Contents: Dancing Town; The Wake at Ardee; The Mouth of Honey; The Wrestler from Aleppo; The Valley of the Black Pig; The Bold Fenian Men; and The Kingdom and the Power and the Glory.

Unsocial Socialist
George Bernard Shaw
0393006603
November 1990
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
1913. Most of Shaw's early plays were either banned by the censor or refused production. He began the practice of writing the challenging, mocking, eloquent prefaces to his plays, which were sometimes longer than the play itself. In 1925 he won the Nobel prize. The Unsocial Socialist is one of Shaw's last satires and was the inspiration for the play, Smash. The book begins: In the dusk of an October evening, a sensible looking woman of forty came out through an oaken door to a broad landing on the first floor of an old English country-house. A braid of her hair had fallen forward as if she had been stooping over book or pen; and she stood for a moment to smooth it, and to gaze contemplatively-not in the least sentimentally-through the tall, narrow window. The sun was setting, but its glories were at the other side of...
