Featuring a foreword by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. When Prince wanted to document his One Nite Alone tour in 2002, he turned to Afshin Shahidi. Again in 2004, he went along on Prince’s record breaking Musicology Tour. Afshin met Prince in 1989 and became his cinematographer and later his photographer. He was the photographer closest to Prince for the last fifteen years of Prince’s life. Afshin is the only photographer to shoot the legendary 3121 private parties in Los Angeles that became the most sought after invitations in Hollywood. Prince: A Private View compiles his work into a journey through Prince's extraordinary life. With many never-before-seen photos, this is the ultimate collection of – some intimate, some candid, some in concert – shots of Prince, but all are carefully directed in the artist-as-art style that we associate with him. Deep photo captions are brief, but complete stories about Prince's life at that moment - some are incisive, others are personal and even funny.

"From its beginnings in London's Mayfair, the New Grafton Gallery actively promoted a cross-section of British artistic talent which included the established names of Elisabeth Frink, Carel Weight, Mary Fedden and John Nash to the emerging talents of Richard Pikesley, Sarah Spencer and Julian Bailey. Moving to Barnes, south-west London, in the early 1980s, the gallery became a mecca for collectors and artists alike and Wolfers remained a hands-on dealer, admired and respected by patrons and artists, until his death in 2001." "A Private View is the realisation of Wolfers' ambition to record his many and varied experiences in the art world. His own memories and anecdotes are artfully edited by Julian Halsby to create a book which illustrates how the gallery was created and sustained to become an important element in the history of post-war British art." "Illustrated throughout with over fifty reproductions of the gallery's highlights, including works by Patrick Heron, Mary Fedden, Ruskin Spear and Stanley Spencer, A Private View will appeal to all those with an interest in twentieth-century British figurative art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

A lawyer by profession, Theodore Martin (1816-1909) gained literary distinction as both a humorous essayist and versatile translator. He found his greatest success, however, in the role of biographer to Prince Albert (1819-61). Commissioned by Queen Victoria to memorialise her late husband, this five-volume work was first published between 1875 and 1880. Intended as a continuation of the biography begun by Charles Grey (also reissued in this series), it has been described as 'less adulatory in tone than might be expected'. A treasury of letters and memoranda, it presents a detailed portrait of the character, words and deeds of a man whose life was necessarily immersed in the great events of his time. Volume 2 covers the period from 1848 to 1854, the births of Princes Arthur and Leopold, the collapse of the Chartist movement and the 'spectacular success' of the Great Exhibition of 1851.
