The Art of the Stone Age - 40000 Years of Stone Age Paintings: Hans-Georg Bandi

Art of the Stone Age was unknown until 1879 when the world-famous cave of Altamira was discovered. Then, little more than a half-century ago, interest in the art of Stone Age man arose. Each new discovery demonstrated that primitive man was not so "primitive" as we had thought; that his art was sophisticated in many ways with a freshness and in immediacy of approach that the twentieth century might envy.

For five hundred years the Sistine chapel has been one of the most important places tor the Christian faith and for the entire history of art. The paintings that cover the walls and ceiling of the chapel are unique masterpieces portraying the story of humanity as intended by God, from the Creation to the Last Judgement. Many prominent figures have contributed to the construction, decoration and history of the chapel. Two popes of the Delia Rovere family, Sixtus IV and Julius II, more than anyone else, were responsible for making the chapel into the building we know today. The artists who gave expression to their projects were some of the greatest names in 15th-century painting Perugino, Botticelli, Signorelli and Ghirlandaiobut the real giant among them was Michelangelo Buonarroti, the creator of the ceiling frescoes and the Last Judgement. In recent years master craftsmen have contributed to restoring these frescoes to their original splendor.

Max Ernst: Gaston Diehl

: 19.6 MB

Despite the fact that Max Ernst has long been regarded by his peers as a major trailblazer in research into the subconscious, a pioneer of oneiric art, and a prince of the kingdom of the bizarre, neither in France nor in the United States has he received the general public acclaim he deserves. Only in the past decade has this unfortunate lack of understanding finally evaporated, and his work, which has always been appreciated by a few friends and faithful collectors, is now enjoying a universal vogue, as is evidenced by numerous international exhibitions.
