Painting On China

RRP $16.99

From the INTRODUCTION:

THIS little work is not only intended as a guide to the particular art of china painting, but is especially designed to meet the needs of those who may be unaccustomed to the use of either brush or pencil.

With this end in view, the strict attention which will be given to practical detail, and the careful instruction in the rudiments of the art may prove somewhat fatiguing to those who, already experienced in oil and water colors, desire only such instruction as will aid them in the use of mineral colors upon the glazed surface of hard porcelain.

Let these amateurs in china painting remember that the most skillful artists have failed in attempts at china decoration through ignorance of a few secrets pertaining to this art alone, which, when learned, seem simple enough, but by their intelligent use enable the artist to produce results that add materially to our home decoration.

First attempts are always more or less discouraging. Difficulties, unknown in oil painting, are here encountered at every step; but these difficulties, insurmountable by the uninitiated, are, after a little careful study, easily overcome.

For the encouragement of beginners it may also be said that if obstacles are encountered in the first "manipulation" of the vitrifiable colors used in china-painting, so also are more agreeable results possible from the hands of the amateur than in any other branch of art; and articles in china, decorated by purely mechanical means, sometimes compare favorably with the valuable productions of accomplished artists.

Success in this art depends greatly upon the patience and perseverance of the decorator, and a proper selection of colors, brushes, etc. It may also be added that perfect order and cleanliness are not only desirable but positively necessary in order to obtain satisfactory results.

It would be hard to find an accomplishment more refined or elegant, or that will yield a better return for the time, labor, and thought expended on it, than china painting.

Many beautiful and original modes of decoration, and, it may be added, many novel and interesting artistic ideas, which would otherwise lie dormant, may here find expression as the tyro in this branch of art becomes more proficient and better able to finish and perfect the work. Many persons in the great cities earn a comfortable livelihood by practicing this branch of art, and, in proportion as they excel, find both profit and delight in its pursuit.


A Corpus Of Rembrandt Paintings Iv

RRP $4.00

In Volume IV the focus lies on Rembrandt's self-portraits. During this research it became obvious that matters of authenticity cannot be viewed separately from questions relating to the original function and meaning of these works. Rembrandt's intriguing life-long practice of portraying himself in front of a mirror is examined in depth in this volume. As a result, not only has the group of approximately forty painted self-portraits gained transparency, but also new insights have been developed regarding Rembrandt's drawn and etched self-portraits. The problems of authenticity relating to a substantial number of self-portraits which in the past were attributed to Rembrandt, in this volume receive an unexpected nuance: through a combination of technical and stylistic research it is demonstrated that some of Rembrandt's self-portraits were in fact painted by others in his workshop.In clear and accessible explanatory texts the different paintings are discussed. Among the many illustrations are life-size colour reproductions of the faces of the self-portraits under discussion. Details are shown where possible, as well as the results of modern day technical imaging like X-radiography. The volume contains an -- in several respects eye-opening -- essay by the head of the Rembrandt Research Project, Ernst van de Wetering, on the problems of authenticity and function of Rembrandt's self-portraits. In addition, the book includes groundbreaking contributions by Marieke den Winkel on the meaning of dress and costume in Rembrandt's self-portraits, by Karin Groen on the use of grounds in Rembrandt's workshop and in paintings by his contemporaries, and a study by Jaap van der Veen concerning 17th-century ideas about authenticity in art.This reference work should be part of every serious art historical institute, university or museum. The enigma of Rembrandt's self-portraits, one of the most compelling phenomena in art history has been unravelled by Ernst van de Wetering with unprecedented thoroughness.
