Maria Sibylla Merian: 22 Pull-Out Posters

Maria Sibylla Merian: 22 Pull-Out Posters

Author: Publishing Prestel Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/02/2020

More than three centuries after Maria Sibylla Merian established herself as a scientific trailblazer-and after more than two centuries of obscurity-the work of this pioneering naturalist and artist is being rediscovered. Merian's work, The New Book of Flowers, raised the artistic standards of natural history illustration. Published in 1675, the book employed impeccable botanic accuracy with artistic expression. In it, Merian moved away from traditional methods that favored single illustrations and instead composed her studies to explore the relationships between flowers and insects. This poster book draws its nearly two dozen illustrations from The New Book of Flowers. Exquisitely reproduced, each illustration reveals the exacting detail and luminous colors that are the hallmark of Merian's work. Perfect for close study as well as decoration, this treasury of botanical delight will help brighten any room-and inspire anyone drawn to the beautiful world of flowers.

Johannes Vermeer: Girl With a Pearl Earring (Blank Sketch Book)

Johannes Vermeer: Girl With a Pearl Earring (Blank Sketch Book)

Author: Flame Tree Studio Format: Notebook / blank book Release Date: 05/02/2020

Part of a series of exciting and luxurious Flame Tree Sketch Books Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed, then foil stamped. The thick paper stock makes them perfect for sketching and drawing. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example features Johannes Vermeer: Girl With a Pearl Earring. The grand master of portraiture, Johannes Vermeer, was a pivotal figure of the Dutch Golden Age. Girl with a Pearl Earring depicts the fresh-faced beauty of a young woman, simply but strikingly adorned in a turban and luminous pearl. Her intimate and direct gaze enhances the energy of the portrait and offsets the dark, understated colour scheme. An enigmatic and seductive atmosphere swirls around her, while the subject remains forever still for the viewer to admire.

National Gallery: Bosschaert: A Still Life of Flowers (Blank Sketch Book)

National Gallery: Bosschaert: A Still Life of Flowers (Blank Sketch Book)

Author: Flame Tree Studio Format: Notebook / blank book Release Date: 05/02/2020

Part of a series of exciting and luxurious Flame Tree Sketch Books Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed, then foil stamped. The thick paper stock makes them perfect for sketching and drawing. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example features National Gallery: Bosschaert: A Still Life of Flowers. Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder was a Dutch Golden Age painter. The flowers in this arrangement, which include lilies, tulips, roses, and carnations, are painted with almost scientific precision. Bosschaert's choice of a smooth copper support enhances the extraordinary detail of his brushwork. The bouquet itself, however, is a fiction: these flowers do not bloom at the same time, and would have been far too precious to cut for temporary display.
