Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting
por John F. Carlson
Written by a famous American painter and teacher, whose landscapes are found in many of the world's most noted museums, this book is known as one of the art students' most helpful guides. It provides a wealth of advice on the choice of subject; it tells what to look for and aim for, and explains the mysteries of color, atmospheric conditions, and other phenomena to be found in nature.
Through his profound understanding of the physical nature of landscapes and his highly developed see more artistic sense, John Carlson is able to explain both the whys and the hows of the various aspects of landscape painting. Among the subjects covered are angles and consequent values (an insightful concept necessary for strong overall unity of design), aerial and linear perspective, the painting of trees, the emotional properties of line and mass in composition, light, unity of tone, choice of subject, and memory work. In the beginning chapters, the author tells how to make the best of canvas, palette, colors, brushes, and other materials and gives valuable advice about texture, glazing, varnishing, bleaching, retouching, and framing. Thirty-four reproductions of Mr. Carlson's own work and 58 of his explanatory diagrams are shown on pages adjoining the text.
As Howard Simon says in the introduction: "Crammed into its pages are the thoughts and experiences of a lifetime of painting and teaching. Undoubtedly it is a good book for the beginner, but the old hand at art will appreciate its honesty and broadness of viewpoint. It confines itself to the mechanics of landscape painting but, philosophically, it roams far and wide. . . . This is a book to keep, to read at leisure, and to look into for the solution of problems as they arise, when the need for an experienced hand is felt."

Painting on Light: Drawings and Stained Glass in the Age of Dürer and Holbein
por Barbara Butts
The names Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein the Younger evoke
the dazzling accomplishments of Renaissance panel painting and printmaking, but
they may not summon images of stained glass. Nevertheless, Dürer, Holbein, and
their southern German and Swiss contemporaries designed some of the most
splendid works in the history of the medium. This lavish volume is a
comprehensive survey of the contribution to stained glass made by these
extraordinarily gifted draftsmen and the see more equally talented glass painters who
rendered their compositions in glass.
Included are discussions of both monumental church windows
and smaller-scale stained-glass panels made for cloisters, civic buildings,
residences, and private chapels. The subjects of these rarely seen drawings and
panels range from religious topics to secular themes, including love, planets,
hunts, and battles.
Focusing on stained glass produced in Germany and
Switzerland from about 1495 to 1530, Painting
on Light includes drawings by Dürer, Holbein, Albrecht Altdorfer, Hans
Baldung Grien, Jörg Breu the Elder, Hans Burgkmair, Urs Graf, Hans von
Kulmbach, Hans Leu the Younger, Niklaus Manuel Deutsch, Hans Schäufelein, Hans
Weiditz, and others. This informative book is published in conjunction with an
exhibition at the Getty Museum from July 11 through September 24, 2000, and
from November 7, 2000, to January 4, 2001, at the Saint Louis Art Museum.
