The Silesian Museum in Katowice, Poland, was created to display the material, artistic and spiritual culture of this historic region, which encompasses parts of Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. This guide showcases the highlights of the Museum's extensive collection, which includes not only one of the world's most valuable collections of Polish paintings but also important archaeological, ethnographic and historical artefacts. It is also home to the Centre for Polish Scenography, which displays paraphernalia from Poland's modern theatre scene. These objects, taken from both public and private life, reflect the religion, industry and unique culture of the region. This publication coincides with the opening of a bold new Museum complex, located in one of the former coal mines that have so shaped the region's identity. This cutting-edge new building breathes fresh life into the underground space. It is the first to appear in what will become the Cultural District - the new centre of cultural life for the city.
The Courtauld is one of the United Kingdom's great art collections, displayed throughout the magnificent historic setting of Somerset House in central London. This elegant book is a curated selection of its highlights - paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and decorative arts - each beautifully illustrated and accompanied by an insightful commentary. Notable among these treasures are remarkable Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including the world-famous A Bar at the Folies-Bergere by Edouard Manet and Vincent van Gogh's Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear.
This book is also an engaging account of how The Courtauld became an internationally renowned centre for the teaching and research of art history, conservation and curating. It was founded nearly a century ago in the belief that art has the power to enrich people's lives. The Courtauld continues that mission today, promoting the understanding of the visual arts and offering a place where everyone can find enjoyment and inspiration.
