They are the bit has concerned that some pages will not remain glued/stitched without a coverage that resists it everything near.

Ossia An excellent monograph . If you are spent to the picture of the Lautner house and wants to discover more ossia a point of ideal start .

My remorse is that a House to Expect recently used for LV for the fashionable show is not included - but ossia a lot of-has documented elsewhere. An usual Taschen values of big production and the incredible value for money is present in this book.
4 / 5 Augusta
Utmost of big measure hardcover book, on 179 lustrous pages profusely illustrated with vintage B&W the photos that objective some houses before these were animal-modeled for Lautner he for new owners, and photos to paint to the objective like him some houses has looked in 1994, a year Lautner raisin was. A book also has the by heart glorious photos of some original drawings for some houses in a book. As the majority of Taschen books, has text in 3 tongues: English-German-French.
John Lautner was the student of Lloyd Franco Wright and studied in Taliesin West in Arizona, first to go California to do in an order. I arrive it, John Lautner has not liked him Los Angeles but during his time/of working drawing of life he certainly transformed 'living California' for quell'quite lucky to buy one of his houses asombrosas.un sheer daring of his creations remain to stun.
Loves law with 'cimentó and the amazing houses done out of him (p. p.ej. Arango & Silvertop & Sheats/Goldstein Marry)... In my opinion, John Lautner is probably a better architect never!
Has not confused with a Taschen 2005 paperback version that is offered like this is the book the small plus entirely different with only 96 pages.
This 1999 Big Art the book is the must -have for defenders of John Lautner is arTchitecture!

Top Customer Reviews: Walter Gropius: ...

Rating: 4 out of 5 with 8 ratings
5 / 5 Lien
A prodigious piece partorisca do that clearly the investigation has extended involved in a material published in Gropius, examination of papers a lot previously available and glimpsed with friends, mates and down of a Bauhausler. These stands of volume well with some other wonderful biographies penned for Fiona MacCarthy.
MacCarthy Divides his book to three sections that extracted Gropius in Germania (1883 to 1934), his experience like the refugee in Big Bretagna (1934 to 1937) and finally his life in Amsterdam and naturalización (1937 to 1969). Some first two sections are, perhaps of necessity, one the majority of interesting. In Germania has an emotion of Gropius taking on cup of his date in Weimar likes manager of both a Kunstgewerbeschule and a Hochschule skin Bildener Kunst and creating a new concept of a Bauhaus, the blending of work and fine art and some open free-wheeling educational concept. One first section is also a lot of invigorated for copious details regarding Gropius amour and pair to a notorious Soul Mahler, and his subsequent infatuations with Lily Hildebrandt and Maria Benemann. Finally, has his pair the Ise (Ilse Frank). Ossia Also a period when life-the long reports have been formed among Gropius and many of a talented Bauhausler the one who was to result famous in his own legislation.
A second section in Inghilterra registers a now familiar history of a ‘rescue' of Walter and Ise Gropius and his brief sojourn in some Pavings of street of the Law or Isokon Edifice (1934) in Belsize Parco, Londra north, for Jack and Molly Pritchard. This section is enlivened for a fascinating mould of the characters that comprises some charismatic Pritchards, the lover of Molly and Isokon architect Wells Coates, and a brilliant architect and next collaborator to Gropius, the maxwell Fries.
A final section in Amsterdam sees Walter and Ise has gathered with a lot of friends those who have escaped Europe for religious or artistic reasons. Gropius Lands the prestigious work in Harvard and is associated with the number of projects, but takings one that feels that often his name has been has wanted enough more than his practical skills like an architect. A life of Gropius now looks to be the constant harking behind to some days of glory of Dessau and a Bauhaus.
Whilst MacCarthy Is unfailingly positive and uncritical of Gropius, take a diverse that feels that, likes a lot of the one who achieves sucedidos early, everything with which Germania less satisfied and that his more utmost work was already complete.
A glorious piece of work and unreservedly recommended to all interested in this subject.
5 / 5 Dale
Fiona MacCarthy Tip what Gropius' the life has been distant a lot of simple navigation. This was in spite of a reputation obtains for his short-the early creation lived of a Bauhaus and a big circle of influential friends and acquaintances this is coming like the result. Fight for lack of commissions, partly been due to some lens take-on his modernistic architecture, partly been due to a Depression and then an arrival of some Nazi the one who has closed down a Bauhaus. With which escape in Inghilterra, and finally Amsterdam, fight to be the foreigner pitched against already the local architects have required in relatively of conservative phases. Felizmente His place to teach has helped to the long of, finalise until Harvard. A book is riddled with known good names and has abundance on Alma Mahler, his first woman, and of course Isa, his second, the one who has resupplied like this support. A Bauhaus has presented a concept of a Course of Foundation and Gropius never abandoned his faith that a discipline of the architecture would not owe never find isolated of art. Some last chapters are especially delicious and optimistic. They describe Gropius' meeting up with friends those who had survived a war, and his estaca-life of Harvard when a glorious old man has travelled a world, taking involved in estaca of entity-projects of war and when being feted everywhere go.

Of course Fiona McCarthy is correctly lauded for his excellent biographies, and this does not disappoint . Walter Gropious the life is portrayed in quite startling detail, something that has to that it has involved alcohol-boggling quantity of investigation. It is to remain with the thorough knowledge of his life, and create the a lot of comprising of his walks and intentions. It would have liked him it has liked the little more in a Bauhaus and some the physical works have produced there, but of course ossia the subject a bit different , on the one who this biography resupplied with a push to research.

The one who was Walter Gropius? It has been to master that, the man of ladies, arrogant, grumpy, a egotist, the phoney, the architect adds? MacCarthy Has written this book to answer these and other questions. Gropius Has aroused feelings very strong so much of admiration and opprobrium. He, question, has relevance for us today?

A book is organised in three parts: First Life: Germania of 1883 to 1934; Second Life: Inghilterra of 1934 to 1937; and Third Life: Amsterdam of 1937 to 1969. There are illustrations and of the dishes.

After a carnage of a big War in that the be be attribute a Cross of Iron partorisca bravery, Gropius has conceived a Bauhaus-the House of Edifice-in Weimar and then Dessau like the half to use new technology in architecture. Has enormous charisma. It was in a European of modern arts centre for on two decades. Gropius Has invented the form of creative education that the schools of art have influenced everywhere. It is the philosopher , and thinker. In spite of of the this has had a lot of critics been due to his a lot of subjects and so that some has said was his boring character, dictatorial. Some critics have contested was initially too close up of national socialism. An author the one who has known disagrees, the saying was heroic, optimistic and the romantic. MacCarthy Also pays tribute his second woman, Ise, that marries in 1923. It is one of some reasons a Bauhaus flourished.

Partorisca Gropius, a Bauhaus in Weimar was the place of light, liberty, concentration and experience. It has been compared to William Morris that MacCarthy has written an excellent biography. Women as well as men flourished in a Bauhaus, giving lie to a claim Gropius displeased women. Gropius To Germania has escaped with which Hitler has obtained can. His link with like this-the degenerate art called has done the marked man. In Amsterdam he flourished. It likes Morris he emphasised an importance of beauty in human life. His influence on estaca 1945 architecture in Amsterdam was enormous. A lot his students of Harvard leading, for example Paul Rudolph, Harry Seidler and Eliot Noyes famous world-wide result.

On thirty representatives of a Bauhaus died in camps of Nazi concentration. A Bauhaus the edifice in Berlino had been destroyed in a raid to air a last year of a war. A tentativa to restart to to a school likes them the part of one of-Nazification the program fracasado after the few months. Gropius To the berlin Described like the cadavere has disintegrated.

In an integer MacCarthy does the fine work partorisca redeem Gropius. It has written the very balanced biography of the a lot of talented man. It is gripping and intelligent. Ossia His first subject foreigner . Some starts of book in a centenary of one founding of a Bauhaus in Weimar. MacCarthy Torres the sinister man strongly critiqued for Anthony Blunt, Tom Wolfe, and a lot another, to the very attractive man, particularly to a sex a just plus. It was also the very good table tennist. Paul Klee, a Bauhaus master of art, has called a Prince of Money. Die in 1969 aged it 86.

This book is fascinating, excellently researched and covers the subject very interesting, specifically likes John Snare, the bookseller partorisca Read, has found to be able to have been the product for a Spanish painter adds, Diego Velazquez and like this fulfilling shaped his life with which conceal. An author also resupplies the very interesting short(ish) biography of Velazquez beside a history in Snare.

This pound wants to buy me a book of Velazquez complete products and visit a National Gallery, a Meadow and a Doria Pamphilij Gallery, which house many of his masterpieces. I me look in some products with thrilling and the interest has renewed.

A reason because it gives it three star is reason, with which roughly 150 pages, an author begins repeats, how is clear that his investigation in Snare he especially and his product has run to the cul-de-sac. There is a lot of speculation in the Snare can have thought but cushion to like me chairs of mine. Another element of a book that grates is a discussion repeated of the Girls. While ossia undoubtedly one of one the majority of products of entities and influential of all the times, there is again the plot of repetition and that felt like the roughly concealed discussion does not advance subjects many. If this book had been 50-80 short pages, has been excellent.

Has loved this book, a ingeniously intertwined the biography of the Victorian printer got obsessed with the picture of the mystery mixed with the scholar jog by means of Velasquez ( paints it?) Life & of art in a Spanish Yard. I have not had any idea Manet has estimated like this highly and the felt has learnt the plot of a book. His descriptions of his fashion to product me to us long to go back to a Meadow, & in fact to Duff House, more adds Scottish Baroque creations.

A sensitively the accounts written of the odd report of a man with the portrait. I have found this to be an inspiring and spiritual book both for the passion of an author for art and the connection of a @@subject to a product. Cumming Knowledge of a world-wide past art and present gives a cause of reader to reflect in which some technicians in detection and recognition have changed. I have been surprised to @give that a 19th century the person would owe that I travel in Spagna to see the Velasquez. And Manet has done so only concealed. The reproductions have not abounded. Methods of the verification of the authenticity was primitive. Laura Cumming has done to treat it a lot adds to concern the investigation and these details are the revelation to a modern reader. The history of a protagonist in both touching and baffling; it runs in tandem with Velasquez own.

The excellent book but the illustrations do not damage the indication of clear image to sustain a text. I have bought of Amazon the second hand-held copy of 'Velazquez - His Life and works in 500 Images' and informing to this where some mark to reserve a lot of recommendations inside his text his produced etc. all a difference in taking full entertainment to A Man to Disappear.

Ossia The wonderfully writing, brilliantly rids conceived and thoroughly has researched. A real find and the real pleasure. They are not so only saying this reason have discovered Velasquez enough for incident, subjects to look in some Goya in a Meadow. There his products were and I so only prendido in a OMG moment and there is wanted and there is enjoyed never of then. Laura Cummings the account of his products is up there with a better, more lucidas and more educationally developing of any critic of the art there is not reading never. This pound taken much more there to the long of an endless street to appreciate an art of an artist and like this of everything. So only it adds.

Can imagine to find painting it so that attacks that resulted a obsessively destructive focal point for a rest of your life?

Ossia A fascinating and involving history of the man to that this past and his rediscovered masterpiece, to the like an author cleverly has woven a biography of an artist and the history of detective that investigations some products.

Fill of intrigue, skulduggery, elation and desesperanza, ossia a Immensely that satisfies to read which have recommended this to any the one who will listen mine.

A history brilliantly writing for all the world is reading ready, complete with the satisfyingly punctual transfer in a row to row with a better tradition of fiction of mystery – except that, of course, this is to do .

Did not like Me a fashion to write, the mine is pretentious and felt was almost the stomach that turns how was the harm like the painter there is little equals. Bought the book of National Gallery in timing although it was the salvation . A staggeringly the artist adds with the most amazing technician. As it Directs such deft work, which found to surprise, will not know never, but thankful I has has the occasion to see such respite that takes work

This book is point and averts; eloquently written, fantastically informative in an artist and the real page-turner for this interested in art of some masters and also in some integers ambience of a 17th century SPANISH YARD. Absolutely fascinating! Writing for a connoisseur of the art experienced and the brilliant history teller.

This book is so roughly Velázquez as roughly John Snare (printer, interested of art). Enough correctly, an author is very fond of Velázquez but I think his descriptions of his products are sometimes too long; I need the little more photographs perhaps. And a way a book is planned and written the fact the little difficult to be still in time.

Has been attracted to this book for two reasons. In the first place, it was in the product, an annex 'Old Master'. Secondly, Some starts of action in a city of Reading (Inghilterra, United Kingdom) and have the connection the Reading. Result to be the history of mystery adds, the like to read and very thrilling.

Laura Cumming has two wonderful histories: a discovery in a Nineteenth Century for John Snare, the bookseller partorisca Read, of the missing Velazquez produced, and like the obsessed and has spent finally down; and a history of Velazquez he, an enigmatic but deeply dignified and sympathetic painter and the special hero the Goya, Manet and Picasso, arguably some three more utmost painters that some last two hundred years. And of course Bacon.

The amazing things spend. Snare Is vindictively pursued, partorisca any very apparent reason, for adds it familiar the one who poden or can has not possessed once his produced, but sold it. Sooner see many of a masterpieces now in our National Gallery trundling by means of Spagna in the cart so only in front of Wellington is invading army. Wellington Has hated looting and tried partorisca give them behind but some Spaniards with utmost has sung the cold has said: No, thank you; calm his the.

Laura Cumming says these histories fantastically. It is well in an almost unimaginable been of art connoisseurship before some days of photograph or public museums. When Snare has ANNOUNCED that there is the Velazquez hardly any one had seen more than one or two, and a lot have been fakes. It writes movingly in a respect Velazquez has had for some dwarves that the produced and the one who has been retained like freaks to amuse a Spanish yard. It transmits a melancholic, formal, almost Gormenghastly character of a Real commitment.

Is the page -turner. It has had any reading anything like this enthralling for the long time. When I have finalised I have been to look again in some products for Velazquez in a National Gallery, and yes is more than amazing.

Like any one distinguished was, that follows some illustrations in Kindle takes an age how is more to buy a book or images of Google of the use.

Ossia The gem . We are partorisca direct by means of corridors of smoke and mirrors of a world of art, that follows John Snare partorisca Read the one who there has been a misfortune partorisca discover and wants to maintain and show the stray Velazquez. It finalise to cost lucido his pair and life in Inghilterra and he have died penniless to New York, a portrait still, thinks, in his hands. Laura Cumming corrals his account a famous painter 'The Girls' as well as some of the his another work and his life to dip joint the masterpiece. This is not the book to give was neither.
5 / 5
Ossia A better work of any-of fiction that has read in of the years. Brilliantly blending a life of Velasquez with a history of a mid-nineteenth bookseller of century the one who has possessed one of his portraits - or he? - I has read spent to cover. Cela A whole book is planted for the ache of an author in the step of his own father the even more special fact. A work of art in him: a lot recommended.

I never quite 'taken' Velazquez. But this fascinating, the book writes fantastically gave the I much more adds to comprise of a man and his time, and more importantly like this to read his products. Travesías In Londra, Madrid & of Rome already is planned when being!
Like another reviewers, has found a frustration with a Kindle the version is that some reproductions of some products do not accompany a text in that is spoken. But to the equal that have read in an iPad, is the simple task to google him. As we are paying quite some same likes version impresa, surely this basic requirement could be fulfilled.

In October 1845 John Snare, printer to Read, paid £8 in auction for the product, roughly a prize of the horse. It was not so only any product. Snare Has believed now possesses portrays he of Charles I for a hand of Velazquez. In an end of this book a reader could feel has bought better the horse, any horse. Directed his ruin, captured by a wave of a picture. A man is a lot the name could have come from/Chat come from Dickens, as it can his tragedy.

Laura Cumming follows a trail of Minster Street, reading the Street of Bond, Mayfair to a yard of Edinburgh to a Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Anything could be undermine roughly John Snare has discovered.

Interwoven Is an exploitation of an artist, an enigmatic imagine the one who never signed, dated or has titled his products. It explores His a lot of works add and describes reason is like this special. This sentence to Disappear the man is like this enthralling like fate of John Snare and necessary to the his sympathetic.

To the long of a way diverts and entertain with a teeming life of a 19th century, characters coloreados of barons of street of the the USA humiliate him Soho undertakers, has read the Old masters have lost in sea, burned in of the fires of palaces and eaten by some moths that alive in of the turns to bank feasting in lines.

An author has his own reasons to be captivated for Velazquez, which shaped his amour for his art and enable him to comprise John Snare. Cumming Looked long and hard for an image of a printer. It is unsuccessful, but so only an artist could have done justice in all the chance and has died long.

His exhaustive investigation has answered a lot of questions but a lot of mysteries remain, which will appeal to a sleuth in his readers. Perhaps some solutions are there.

This wonderfully original and for real fascinating the history of the stray picture is the delight of an extreme to the another. In 1623 a future converged has been in the travesía to Spagna with a patient-plan conceived to marry the sister of a King. Quell'Conceals has not done, but while there it directs to have his portrait painted for an artist of yard – Velazquez. House of turn with a picture but he more have been late lose. In 1845 the bookseller to Read has bought he in auction and is spent a rest of his life that tries to try concealed that has was in fact one missing Velazquez. One paints resulted his obsession and his downfall. In this meticulously researched book an author does not describe John so only Snare odyssey with his picture, but turns a narrative to an extraordinary mix of history, history of art and recognition, history of detective, psychological studio, and an exploitation of an establishment of art in general. Expertly Written and well-illustrated, ossia an excellent book roughly art, artists and lovers of art.

A immensely enjoyable and totally that absorbs read, Laura Cumming is 'A Man to Disappear' says an intriguing history of Velázquez' long-has lost to paint of King Charles I, which has been believed to has been painted of a Spanish artist when the conferences has visited Madrid when you are twenty-two and no still king. In 1623, Prince Chat and his mate George Villiers, Duque of Buckingham, arrived in Spagna with an intention of winner a hand of King Philip IV YOUNG GEMELLI, a Catholic Maria Anna. This in spite of, he tentativa of a Prince was unsuccessful and Charles and a Duke of Buckingham has arrived behind in Inghilterra several months later without the park betrothal, but with the number of pieces of the art purchased during a recognition, probably with portraying he of Velázquez of Charles goes in. If, as it has thought, a portrait has gone back in Inghilterra with a Real party, looks that Chat of Prince has not maintained he in his possession - but that has spent his?

In 1845, John Snare, the bookseller to Read, spotted an ad in a esading Mercurio' that announces the next auction in Radley Soiled where, among others elements for sale, was to portray it described to eat: 'A Half-Period of Charles a Prime minister (supposed Van-dyke) [sic].' In a viewing for advanced, Snare has examined a portrays that it was darkened like this to time that you pode ail mark out of some characteristic - this in spite of see enough to do feel that although a product was for the famous artist, has not gone by a van of Anthony of Flemish artist Dyck, but possibly a work of a painter of Spanish yard Diego Velázquez, considered for a lot to be a master more adds. Once Snare had bought and has cleaned a product, is engreído that this was an along-stray portrait of Charles I and is the result got obsessed with to try that it find it one Velázquez is disappeared. This obsession, which has involved Snare in indefatigably that follows down each piece of 'evidence' possibly can, resulted in him that loses his subject, his reputation and, finally, his familiar - but was one painting really the Velázquez and where is that painting now?

Ossia An absolutely fascinating and Laura and extraordinary history Cumming (the one who has consecrated a book to a memory of his a lot of-the father has wanted, an artist James Cumming) wrote it astonishingly well. Biography of part, history of detective of the part, history of art of the part, Lady Cumming, the one who is critical of art for a 'Observant' and whose admiration for resplandores of Velázquez of Diego by means of on virtually each page, combines all these skilfully together parts and has produced a eloquent, obliging and immensely entertaining reserves which have no hesitation recommends highly.

5 Stars.

Ossia The brilliant and fascinating pound - particularly that it interest in an art of way has been dress first of one was of reproduction of mass - But would not recommend the reading on he Kindle. I have loved to be able to flick behind and the advance to some pictures has mentioned in a text while it read, and that it has to do like this electronically was a lot of frustrating. Also some images are tiny and monochrome in mine Kindle Paperwhite - possibly is in colour in a Kindle Fire and in a physical book. I have learnt a lesson that if the book contains images a Kindle is not a way of the bed... I have enjoyed still a book enormously, but feel I need for the bed again in shape of book.

Critical of art Laura Cumming has the present to help to appreciate paint more fully,

has the particular feeling for “The Girls”, an enigmatic masterpiece for Velasquez which mixes “the watchers and a looked”, spending, some spectators to a picture: a Spanish Boy in the group of maidservants and the dwarves of contact of yard of direct eye with us, excepts that in fact they can be remark a king and queen, glimpsed Arnolfini portrayed-way in the background mirror, the one who once can be estada where maintaining stand, when be painted for Velasquez he, portrait with his palette in the enormous cloth to a side. His brushlike tapering the toes that melts to a paintbrush he, “no more than the darting streak of white” – “the whole product has been dipped in motion for his delicate tip, which effectively disappears”.

Laura Cumming constantly marvels in that often sketchy and thin brushwork when seen near on, could create such fine detail of clothes with sheen of silk and transparent white collars. The expensive is like this expressive that it alive look, startling with his modernity: a portrait of a misnamed the pope Inocencio X disconcerted spectators, as it fulfil in a flesh. Philip IV of Spagna has preferred any to rid to a unflinching truthfulness of Velazquez portraits to the equal that grow old, but there is retained a painter of yard has employed like the very young man, although for a last decade of his life Velasquez has been promoted the Big Chamberlain and looks for having produced relatively pocolas read still of big quality, comprising The Girls .

Although resisted in big consideration, Velasquez has not been to release to travel, obtaining permission for only two visit long in Italy, but there is retained his artistic independence in an agreement-courts of Spanish increase. His the majority of striking portraits is normal people: a water dignified-vendor, realistic drops of liquids trickling down a wry side of the ceramic pot; an old woman that fries the eggs in that a translucent fluid can be seen in a process to solidify to aim; some dwarves am portrayed with the front in big; self-has ensured Moorish that has taken the one who has chosen remains with Velasquez in spite of obtaining his liberty; actor Pablo of Valladolid that launches his shadow in the void which servants to direct on his theatrical presence. Never experimental, a painter has produced included an inspiration for impressionism in an external scene of some Medical Gardens, the big cypresses that traces on the white cloth draped in the balconied digs with him crudely boarded-on archway.

Of then comparatively little is known in Velasquez, a thick book the looks cushioned was with overblown speculation and the detailed sub-to plot that considers some obsessive endeavours to Read printer John Snare to obtain the recognition for a portrait has purchased of a youthful destined prince to result Converse 1. If or a lot ossia the genuine Velasquez, a show of history like a random, inconsistent description and classifies of products together with the lack of the X-rays and other technicians to date he like this last to attribute them with accuracy until well to a C20, if then. Of course you help it yes Velasquez had signed his work. Also it is disturbing to read in a trafficante that, in that cleaned quell'on” he “Velasquez” for the do more attractive to the buyer, had darkened that and aged to fetch the better prize to adapt some flavours of the rich alternative bidder.

Although some stuffs by heart is of good quality, a main weakness of the generally fascinating the book is a need for more than them, and better cross-referencing with a text, although this has added the small to a prize. A small black and the integrated white photographs in a text scant justice to the work of a painter. Has has had to that do the note of some titles of products have described at length so that it can look for his on-line images.
