Also highlighted are the important achievements in film in the world’s main filmmaking nations, as well as the careers of international auteurs such as Akira Kurosawa, Federico Fellini, and Pedro Almodóvar. From prewar Expressionism and Screwballism to twenty-first century Teenagism and Dystopianism, with many stops along the way, these wellillustrated and clearly defined “isms” help put all of cinema history into context

This is the first book to take seriously - though not too seriously - the surprisingly neglected role of humour in art. 'Art and Laughter' looks back to comic masters such as Hogarth and Daumier and to Dada, Surrealism and Pop Art, asking what makes us laugh and why. It explores the use of comedy in art from satire and irony to pun, parody and black and bawdy humour. Encouraging laughter in the hallowed space of the gallery, Sheri Klein praises the contemporary artist as ‘clown’ - often overlooked in favour of the role of artist as ‘serious’ commentator - and takes us on a tour of the comic work of Red Grooms, Cary Leibowitz, ‘The Hairy Who’, Richard Prince, Bruce Nauman, Jeff Koons, William Wegman, Vik Muniz and many more. She seeks out those rare smiles in art - from the Mona Lisa onwards - and highlights too the pleasures of the cute, the camp and the downright kitsch.

In Pentecostal Aesthetics, with a foreword by Amos Yong, Steven Félix-Jäger corrects this by reflecting theologically on art and aesthetics from a global Pentecostal perspective, particularly through a pneumatic Pentecostal lens.

No longer is explanation of art subjective and the sole domain of the art critic. Introducing Neurones, Art and Morality, this well-researched and insightful book applies recent scientific explanations of brain biology to explain the impact of art, and adds objectivity and independence from commercial and personality influences. Beyond that, it illuminates how the artist uses brushstrokes, shapes and colours to manipulate our emotions. Through the prism of science, the process of visual reception, storage, memory connections, interpretation and reaction become clear. The differences between old masters and modern art genres are discussed and the relationship of “taste” to the cognitive stock of the viewer is explored. The artist draws human experience into focus enabling us to see ourselves with a clarity that is otherwise elusive. In this way we are reminded of the characteristic values of our existence, an important part of our acculturation. This book is aimed at art lovers and is an accessible and informative scientific discourse on that magic aspect of painting, how the artist achieves and how the viewer perceives. This is extrapolated to how art was used as a moral guide to the illiterate, as propaganda and as protest art. In turn, the religious and socio-political influences on art and artists are followed through history from cave art to monochrome canvases.

Um das Leben des Malers Lucian Freud ranken sich viele Gerüchte – nicht zuletzt, weil er Privates rigoros vor der Öffentlichkeit abschirmte. Geordie Greig gehörte zu Freuds engsten Vertrauten, mit ihm teilte er Geschichten aus seinem Leben, das voller Arbeitswut, grausamer Rücksichtslosigkeit und einer fatalen Hang zum Glücksspiel war. Greig enthüllt in seiner Biographie eine faszinierende Persönlichkeit, für die jeder aus der High Society liebend gern Modell sitzen wollte, obwohl es monatelange Tortur bedeutete. Illustriert mit vielen unbekannten Fotos und Bildern, ist diese Biographie eines der bedeutendsten Maler des 20. Jahrhunderts zugleich ein lebendiges Stück Kunstgeschichte.

Tim und Struppi, Clawdia Chauchat, Settembrini, Mynheer Peeperkorn, Naphta, alle zusammen in einem Hotel in den peruanischen Anden – geht das überhaupt? Der amerikanische Autor Frederic Tuten beweist, daß es geht. In diesem verrückten Abenteuerroman spannt Tuten zwei der berühmtesten Comicfiguren mit einigen der prominentesten Personen der modernen Weltliteratur zusammen. Besonders hübsch die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Madame Chauchat und dem immer noch nicht recht erwachsenen Tim. Sie verführt ihn nach allen Regeln der Kunst einer erfahrenen Frau – und Tim wird endlich ein Mann. Dieser lyrische Abenteuerroman ist natürlich ein ausgewachsener Literaturscherz für Kenner. Indes ist Tuten kreativer Künstler genug, um eine durchaus einleuchtende Geschichte zu erzählen. Auch wer keinerlei Kenntnis von Tintin oder vom ›Zauberberg‹ hat, kommt hier auf seine Kosten.
