Masterpieces from the Hermitage, Leningrad: Western European Art of the 15th-20th Centuries
2 Masterpieces from the Hermitage, Leningrad: Western European Art of the 15th-20th Centuries
Sydney, Australia ICCA 1988 0642131910 / 9780642131911 Paperback New 8" x 10" 
Unread, unmarked. The text pages are tanning lightly around edges. "Masterpieces from the Hermitage" is the catalog of the touring exhibition of Old Master and Impressionist paintings and drawings organized by the Hermitage and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia. The exhibit ran in Sydney from March 10 to May 1, 1988 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and then in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria from May 13 to July 3, 1988. The exhibition had a single theme: The Human Figure in Art. The exhibition consisted of 30 paintings and 30 drawings by well known masters. Among them are works by painters of the Italian Renaissance, an age in which new, truly humanistic conception of art emerged. Works by Bordone, Boticelli, Francia, Pontormo, Palma il Vecchio, Lotto and Correggio illustrate the period. The glorious flowering of painting in the 17th century and the diversity of styles of the masters belonging to leading European schools are represented in the works of Rubens, Van Dyck, Poussin, Lorrain, Hals, Velazquez and Ribera. In the 18th century national distinctions disappear to a large extent, and the works of Lancret, greuze and Reynolds, while all highly individual, are noted for the obvious similarity in their styles. The celebrated Hermitage collection of French paintings of the late 19th to early 20th centuries may be seen in the canvases of Claude Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Gauguin, Matisse and Picasso. The graphic works of masters of the 15th - 18th centuries form a separate part of the exhibition and include masterpieces by Ercole de'Roberti, Durer, Pierre Dumonstier, Rubens and Rembrandt. 67 illustrations, 30 in full color. ; 120 pages

10 Capon, Edmund Qin Shihuang: Terracotta Warriors and Horses
Sydney, Australia ICCA 1983 0959412271 / 9780959412277 Second Edition Paperback Very Good 8 1/2" x 10 1/2" 
Unread with some shelf wear including rubbing at both ends of the spine and light scratches to wraps. 86 photos, 70 in color. The Qin Dynasty comprises only 15 of the 9,000years of Chinese culture. Yet, in that short time, a fragmented feudal empire was transformed into a centralized government so strong that it survived almost uninterupted for two millennia. Qin Shihuang, China's first emperor and builder of the Great Wall, decreed that he was to be buried with a horde of terracotta figures representing his army. In 1974, Qin tomb was discovered and excavated, revealing over 7,500 lifelike figures. Phalanxes of infantrymen, kneeling bowmen, cavalrymen, and chariots have emerged, each with individual, distinctive features. This book chronicles the China of the QIn Dynasty, 200 years before the birth of Christ, China's first, and most exceptional emperor, and his final resting place, one of the most amazing achievements of a remarcable civilization. This is the Catalogue to the "Exhibition of the Terracotta Figures of Warriors and Horses of the Qin Dynasty of China" that toured Australia during the 1980's. ; 96 pages
