What is art? Buy Art Prints?

ART has not always been what we think it is today. An object regarded as Art today may not have been perceived as such when it was first made, nor was the person who made it necessarily regarded as an artist. Both the notion of "art" and the idea of the "artist" are relatively modern terms.

Many of the objects we identify as art today -- Greek painted pottery, medieval manuscript illuminations, and so on -- were made in times and places when people had no concept of "art" as we understand the term. These objects may have been appreciated in various ways and often admired, but not as "art" in the current sense

Anna Bauer's Backstage is a comprehensive portrait of the protagonists of fashion in the twenty-first century's first decade: not just the designers but the entire cast of PR agents, photographers, make-up artists, art directors, editors and, of course, the models. Photographing at shows in Paris, Milan, London and New York, using a large-format camera and black-and-white Polaroid, Bauer decided to portray the diversity of the talent at work behind the scenes. "I got totally addicted to the backstage," Bauer says in the preface to this volume. "I wanted to show how much is involved." Elegantly designed by Fabien Baron, Backstage is divided into eight themed sections: "The Designers," which includes portraits of Alber Elbaz, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Bailey, Diane von Furstenberg, Dries Van Noten, Francisco Costa, Haider Ackermann, Jean Paul Gaultier, Joseph Altuzarra, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci, Rick Owens, Stella McCartney, Tom Ford and Zac Posen; "The Girls," which includes models such as Agyness Deyn, Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Lily Cole;"The Press," with art directors, editors and publishers such as Anna Wintour, Jefferson Hack, Dennis Freedman and Glenn O'Brien; "The Front Row," which features celebrities Kanye West, Milla Jovovich, Lily Allen, The Kills, Juliette Lewis, Marilyn Minter and Cate Blanchett; "The Beauty Squad," with make-up artists, stylists and casting directors such as such as Dick Page, Fran├žois Nars, Guido Palau, James Kaliardos, Orlando Pita and Tom Pecheux; "The Money," which includes CEOs Giancarlo Giammetti, Michael Burke, Gianni Castiglioni and Sidney Toledano; "Behind the Scenes," with publicists and producers such as Alexandre de Betak, Carlos Souza, Caroline Lebar, Ed Filipowski and Pierre Rougier; and finally,"The Photographers," which includes portraits of Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino, Juergen Teller, Martin Parr and Patrick McMullan among others.

Who is William Turner? - Latest Art Prints @ www.firstforprints.co.uk

Joseph Mallord William Turner
(23 April 1775 – 19 December 1851)

 An English Romantic landscape painter, watercolourist and printmaker. Turner was considered a controversial figure in his day, but is now regarded as the artist who elevated landscape painting to an eminence rivalling history painting. Although renowned for his oil paintings, Turner is also one of the greatest masters of British watercolour landscape painting. He is commonly known as "the painter of light" and his work is regarded as a Romantic preface to Impressionism.
