Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics
A startling reassessment of Hitler's aims and motivations, Frederic Spotts's Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics is a deftly argued and highly original work that provides a key to fuller understanding of the Third Reich. In this acclaimed work, Spotts convincingly demonstrates that contrary to the traditional view that Hitler had no life outside of politics, Hitler's interest in the arts was as intense as his racism - and that he used the arts to disguise the heinous crimes that were the means to fulfilling his ends. Hitler's vision of the Aryan superstate was to be expressed as much in art as in politics: culture was not only the end to which power should aspire, but the means of achieving it.
Churchill: The Statesman as Artist
Cannadine, David (Edt)
Across almost 50 years, Winston Churchill produced more than 500 paintings. His subjects included his family homes at Blenheim and Chartwell, evocative coastal scenes on the French Riviera, and many sun-drenched depictions of Marrakesh in Morocco, as well as still life pictures and an extraordinarily revealing self-portrait, painted during a particularly troubled time in his life. In war and peace, Churchill came to enjoy painting as his primary means of relaxation from the strain of public affairs.In his introduction to Churchill: The Statesman as Artist, David Cannadine provides the most important account yet of Churchill's life in art, which was not just a private hobby, but also, from 1945 onwards, an essential element of his public fame. The first part of this book brings together for the first time all of Churchill's writings and speeches on art, not only "Painting as a Pastime," but his addresses to the Royal Academy, his reviews of two of the Academy's summer exhibitions, and an important speech he delivered about art and freedom in 1937.The second part of the book provides previously uncollected critical accounts of his work by some of Churchill's contemporaries: Augustus John's hitherto unpublished introduction to the Royal Academy exhibition of Churchill's paintings in 1959, and essays and reviews by Churchill's acquaintances Sir John Rothenstein and Professor Thomas Bodkin, and the art critic Eric Newton. The book is lavishly illustrated with reproductions of many of Churchill's paintings, some of them appearing for the first time. Here is Churchill the artist more fully revealed than ever before.
Hate Is What We Need
This state of the union is not normal.In this clothbound, hardcover volume, acclaimed artist Ward Schumaker transforms the egregious utterances of the 45th president of the United States of America into provocative text-based paintings. Translating the politics of our moment into visceral works of art, Schumaker offers an alternative to the desensitizing barrage of the news media. Refusing to sanitize or explain these statements, he intuitively features our collective dismay, confusion, and outrage at the stream of vitriol and contempt currently emanating from the White House.
Let's Burn This Moment Down to the Filter
Let’s Burn This Moment Down to the Filter is Los Angeles–based artist Morley’s second collection of art created for the street. Blending humor, hope, and his unique perspective on life, he specializes in bold, typographic posters, which he wheat-pastes within the urban landscape. Disregarding legal boundaries and personal safety, Morley’s commitment to offering hope, humor, poetry, and wisdom is literally on display in each of his pieces.
