Surrealism, originating in Paris in the 1920s, was a movment aimed at establishing a perpetual revolution that would disrupt and disorganize both art and society. The key to these revolutionary art forms and attitudes was Freud's concept of the unconscious which spurred the Surrealists to borrow and develop techniques to create images that fused the unconscious dream state with conscious reality. Their faith in art and altered psychological states formed a lasting legacy and cornerstone of modern art. Surrealism attracted some of the most creative artists of the twentieth century: Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Joan Miro, Jean Arp, Salvador Dali, Andre Masson, Rene Magritte, Alberto Giacometti, and even, Pablo Picasso. Here is the story of Surrealism along with a collection of 96 haunting images, revealing the vivid world of surrealism.

By Susan Wright
8 5/8 x 12 1/4. in. (220 x 310mm) 128 pages. Hardcover. Over 100 illustrations. The Renaissance was a period of cultural growth that began in Italy around 1400 and spread throughout northern Europe over the course of two hundred years. Rejecting the values and stylized conventions of medieval Gothic and Byzantine forms, highly energetic and creative artists, using classical models along with decorative lines and colors, created artworks that reflected the importance of human will. They also rediscovered the necessity of observing the natural world to best express drama and emotion in human terms. Artists as diverse as Donatello and Titian, Bruegel and Durer, Correggio, Mantegna, and Van Eyck are represented in this volume along with the giants of the High Renaissance, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael.

IMPRESSIONISM
By The Editorial Team
9 x 11 1/2 in. 400 pages. Hardcover. 352 full-color reproductions. In 1874, a simple review of a modest art exhibit in Paris announced to the world the birth of one of the greatest art revolutions in historyImpressionism. Though the term impressionism was originally used mockingly by unsympathetic critics, it became an easy label for the art subsequently produced by the organizers of the exhibit, a group known as the Anonymous Society of Artists, Painters, Sculptors, Engravers, etc. This unique society did not wish to be considered as founders of a new art movement with a specific style, but as a group of painters with common interests. The group included Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Paul Cezanne, and Felix Bracquemond. The growth and development of Impressionism is fully described and illustrated in this handsome, comprehensive volume. These along with the works of Frederic Bazille, Mary Cassat, Gustave Caillebotte, Paul Signac, James Ensor, Paul Gauguin, and many others are revealed through a knowledgeable text and 352 full-color reproductions. Here is the story of one of the most popular schools of art, one that continues to fascinate and enchant us.
