Includes for example: Linear and Painterly / Plane and Recession / Closed and Open Form / Sculpture / Architecture etc. etc.

What are the fundamental differences between classic and baroque? Is there a pattern underlying the seemingly helterskelter development of art in different culture and times? What causes our entirely different emotional reactions to, say, Durer and Rembrandt? The author provides an objective set of criteria to answer these and related questions. Examining style, quality, mode of representation in terms of five opposed dynamisms: the linear vs. the painterly; plane vs. recession; closed vs. open form; multiplicity vs. unity; clearness vs. unclearness. The author analyzes the work of 64 major artists, as well as sculpture and architecture. 150 illustrations of the work of Botticelli, van Cleve, Dürer, Holbein, Brueghel, Bouts, Hals, Rembrandt, Velasquez, Titian, Vermeer and 55 others accompany brilliant contributions to the methodology of art criticism. Whether you teach art, study it, or want to understand it purely for your own enjoyment, this epoch-making study will increase your comprehension of and pleasure in the world’s great art treasures.

Wyatt- The Journals of Woodrow Wyatt Wyatt, Woodrow. The Journals of Woodrow Wyatt. Volume One. Edited by Sarah Curtis. Volume One. London, Macmillan, 1998. 24cm x 16cm. xviii, 748 pages. With photographs. Original Hardcover with original price-clipped dustjacket. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.

When Wyatt died in December 1997, he was remembered as a politician, journalist, Chairman of the Tote and confidant of Margaret Thatcher. What no one knew was that from 1985 he had been keeping a journal. His close relationship to Thatcher provides the compelling focus of these journals. Most Sunday mornings between 1986 and her fall from power, Woodrow Wyatt was encouraging, advising, listening to and commiserating with her. Their conversation touched on almost every political event of the time and it is in his journals that we find the comments he could not make public. Entries give the inside story of the Westland affair, the successful Thatcher 1987 election campaign and the growing unease with her leadership.

His life at the Tote brough friendship with raceowners and with royalty, in particular Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mother. His determination to modernize the Tote and his pride in maximising its profits for the benefit of racing run through his journals. He records weekends in stately homes, parties big and small, the food, the wine and the gossip. Wyatt, canny, opinionated, loyal and warm-hearted, is a contemporary of Pepys in the spontaneity of his observations and the breadth of his interests.

Harold Carmichael Wylly, CB (18 January 1858 – 3 September 1932) was a British Army colonel and military historian. Wylly was born in Meerut in the North West Province of British India, the son of E. M. Wylly, a judge in the High Court of Agra. He was educated at Henley Grammar School, Wimbledon School and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, before embarking on a career as an army officer when he was commissioned a lieutenant on 11 September 1878, serving first with the 95th (Derbyshire) Regiment of Foot, which in 1881 was merged into the Sherwood Foresters, as the 2nd battalion (Derbyshire Regiment). He served in the Anglo-Egyptian War in 1882, was promoted to captain on 1 May 1884, served in the Sikkim Expedition in 1888, was promoted to major on 26 May 1893, and served in the Tirah Campaign 1897–98. In February 1900 he joined his battalion when it transferred to Malta. Following the outbreak of the Second Boer War, the 1st battalion of his regiment had embarked for South Africa in November 1899. Leaving his own battalion at Malta, Wylly transferred to South Africa where he was promoted to lieutenant-colonel in command of the 1st battalion from 22 December 1900. For services during the war, he was mentioned in despatches (dated 8 April 1902), and appointed a Companion of the Order of the Bath (CB) in the South Africa honours list published on 26 June 1902. The battalion was later stationed in Hong Kong. (Wikipedia).

Traditionally a very private man, he finally reveals not only the truth behind his controversial departure from the BBC, but also the full story of his life. This is a fascinating, funny and candid account of a lifetime in showbusiness and the private man behind one of Britain’s best-loved figures.
