Book Description :

Every art studio needs a comprehensive guide to drawing and painting materials and how to use them. Written by contemporary artist and instructor Margaret Krug with today’s artist in mind,An Artist’s Handbookis just that, complete with demonstration photographs, taken especially for this book, showing the materials and techniques described in action. The lively text demystifies a variety of historical and contemporary techniques, from the selection of media, preliminary sketching, and the preparation of canvas to fresco, oil, tempera, encaustic, and acrylic painting. Copious color art reproductions serve as both models and inspiration; along with her general instructions, Krug adds basic exercises for the reader to encourage and emphasize the value of independent exploration of media. This is the only “materials and techniques” book the contemporary artist and student will ever need.

Book Description :

"For too long Social Practice has been the notoriously flimsy flipside of market-based contemporary art: a world of hand-wringing practitioners easily satisfied with the feeling of 'doing good' in a community, and unaware that their quasi-activist, anti-formalist positions in fact have a long artistic heritage and can be critically dissected using the tools of art and theatre history. Helguera's spunky primer promises to offer a much-needed critical compass for those adrift in the expanded social field." -Claire Bishop, Professor of Contemporary Art and Exhibition History, CUNY, and author of Artificial Hells: Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship "This is an extremely timely and thoughtful reference book. Drawn from empirical and extensive experience and research, it provides a curriculum and framework for thinking about the complexity of socially engaged practices. Locating the methodologies of this work in between disciplines, Helguera draws on histories of performance, pedagogy, sociology, ethnography, linguistics, community and public practices. Rather than propose a system he exposes the temporalities necessary to make these situations possible and resonant. This is a tool that will allow us to consider the difficulties of making socially engaged art and move closer to finding a language through which we can represent and discuss its impact." -Sally Tallant, Artistic Director, Liverpool Biennial "Helguera has produced a highly readable book that absolutely needs to be in the back pocket of anyone interested in teaching or learning about socially engaged art" -Tom Finkelpearl, Director of the Queens Museum, New York, and author of Dialogues in Public Art

Book Description :

"The anonymous Montpellier Liber diversarum arcium ('Book of Various Arts') contains the most complete set of instructions in the craft of mediaeval painting to have survived to the present day. Its comprehensive summary of the state of the art of painting in the workshops of the fourteenth century will be of great interest to art historians, conservators and historians of artists' technology. The long-overlooked manuscript provides a complete practical painting course: drawing, water-based tempera, oil and fresco. It includes painting on manuscripts, panels, sculptures, and walls, but also painting on glass and ceramics. Instructions are given for the preparation of materials such as pigments and media, and also for their application and modeling, as well as for gilding and other useful techniques. The range of knowledge displayed is remarkable with nearly six hundred recipes, two-thirds of which are unique to this manuscript. Furthermore it demonstrates that when the van Eycks and their contemporaries transformed painting n the fifteenth century, they did so using materials and techniques of oil painting that already existed. This volume contains the first ever published translation of the Liner diversarum arcium together with an extensive technical and historical commentary."--P[4] of cover.
