Anne Monier Vanryb, Michelle C. Langley, Ariane Thomas, Guillaume Grandjean LA FABULEUSE HISTOIRE DES JOUETS : de la Préhistoire à nos jours Silvana Editoriale, 2023. 1. HB, 300 x 240 mm, 192 p, 225 illustrations, FR edition, . ISBN: 9788836652259 Des jouets au musée ? Cet ouvrage en présente un grand nombre, par exemple un bélier à roulettes vieux de 2000 ans, des poupées Barbie, les premiers petits soldats de plomb ou des ours en peluche, tous prêtés à l'HDE Var par les nombreux musées qui se sont intéressés à ces objets fascinants : le musée des Arts décoratifs à Paris, le musée du Louvre, le musée de Cluny, le musée du Jouet de Moirans-en-Montagne, le musée d'Archéologie nationale de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, le Mucem, la BnF et bien d'autres. Les plus grandes institutions muséales ont montré, en contribuant à cette exposition et à ce catalogue, leur intérêt de rendre accessible une réflexion sur ce sujet essentiel. Les musées, comme les institutions universitaires, se sont depuis longtemps saisis de ces objets qui permettent de mieux comprendre la place du jeu dans l'Histoire. En effet, le jouet suit les évolutions historiques, sociales, politiques et économiques, et reflète la place des enfants dans la société. Des harpons miniatures de la Préhistoire aux héros d'aujourd'hui, en passant par les premiers chevaliers ou les petites boutiques du XIXe siècle, l'histoire des jouets nous permet de mieux comprendre la vie des enfants des siècles précédents, mais également les besoins de ceux d'aujourd'hui. Car, au-delà de l'objet et de son histoire, se dessine également l'histoire de son usage et ainsi des mentalités. Alors que les jouets sont à un tournant de leur existence, entre nouvelle technologie et retour aux matériaux naturels, il s'agit de mieux appréhender leur influence sur les premières années de nos vies, mais aussi, pour les adultes, de cultiver et de chérir la part d'enfance qui demeure en chacun de nous.

Brigid Marlin TECHNIQUES IN PAINTING : Learning from the Dutch Masters Bloomsbury, 2022. 1. PB, 279 x 242 mm, 176 p , ENG, fabulous illustrations in colour / b/w, . ISBN: 9781789940589 The art of Brigid Marlin describes a visionary world of almost unlimited dimensions and self-sufficiency ? when I first saw The Rod I was so impressed by its imaginative sweep that I sent an enthusiastic letter of appreciation to her, the only fan letter I have ever sent to a painter. The sense of a clearly realised poetic universe, in which every detail, however modest, was accorded equal attention, was what most gripped my imagination. Surrealism, which had played a large part in forming my own view of the world, had seemed to falter with the death or old age of its greatest practitioners ? Max Ernst, Magritte, Dali and Delvaux ? and here in Brigid Marlin was a painter who might be the first of the next generation. I remember writing her with as much excitement as I felt when I came across the paintings of Francis Bacon in the 1950?s. The surrealist dream of remaking the world and revealing its true nature seemed to live on in the work of this woman painter ? in the best and most ambitious of her paintings we see clearly her dramatic and visionary remaking of the world, but this regeneration of life and space and spirit is present even in her smallest and most domestic images. In her work, as in the greatest of the surrealists, archaic myth and spiritual apocalypse meet and fuse. ? J. G. Ballard In the work of this artist allegorical forms reveal a world philosophy. Symbols are projected into dream landscapes of transparent clarity in which different aspects of surrealism are revealed ? from the convulsive forms of Dorothea Tanning, the fetishism of Dali, and the alchemical and magical sources of the Middle Ages, and then returning to close the circle of Freudian symbolism. This painter is not striving after the latest in art fashion, rather she has an iconography which searches for the hidden roots of modern consciousness, and confronts the material world with transcendence. Her thought world is realised with extraordinary perfection and penetration. Her paintings are both original and sophisticated in their dimensional world of which they are both the surface and the core, going beyond introversion and extroversion, and forcing us to guess at unknown possibilities. The absolute values of known painting fade away in the viewer, letting these paintings, undisturbed by convention, pursue their own visual and spiritual level. The compulsive picture language of Brigid Marlin hints at the visual signposts of a world whose deeper meaning slumbers in a kind of presensuality. One might say that here are beautifully depicted nightmares of the psyche, or that there are effortless presentations of the art of madness. The visual foreground is cleared away, the creation becomes transparent, and one enters a world which radiates rare psychological effects, testing the capacity of the spectator?s power to experience her art.

ISBN: 9781906403898 "In your hands you have the product of teamwork. Together with four colleagues of Qurius, two great editors and two designers I had the wonderful experience of writing and delivering this book in a period of 4 months. We started this all before Christmas 2011 and sent our copy to the printers by the end of March. We all knew what to write and it was if we had been waiting for this book to come along. All of us are very aware of what is going on in the world, in business and in our own company. And we are curious for the drivers behind it. That's why we continuously step into conversations with people that are leading change to a more sustainable world. We believe at Qurius that ICT is crucial in solving many of the challenges of our times be it in social, environmental and economical developments. We take responsibility and our message therefore is 'Create sustainable success!'. Passion is the engine to achieve what needs to be done." Booknumber: 57310 | Price: EUR 12.00 Add to cart
