Listening in Paris
Beginning with the simple question, "Why did audiences grow silent?" Listening in Paris gives a spectator's-eye view of opera and concert life from the Old Regime to the Romantic era, describing the transformation in musical experience from social event to profound aesthetic encounter. James H. Johnson recreates the experience of audiences during these rich decades with brio and wit. Woven into the narrative is an analysis of the political, musical, and aesthetic factors that produced more engaged listening. Johnson shows the gradual pacification of audiences from loud and unruly listeners to the attentive public we know today. Drawing from a wide range of sources—novels, memoirs, police files, personal correspondence, newspaper reviews, architectural plans, and the like—Johnson brings the performances to life: the hubbub of eighteenth-century opera, the exuberance of Revolutionary audiences, Napoleon's musical authoritarianism, the bourgeoisie's polite consideration. He singles out the music of Gluck, Haydn, Rossini, and Beethoven as especially important in forging new ways of hearing. This book's theoretical edge will appeal to cultural and intellectual historians in many fields and periods.
Art Deco Collectibles
In the 1920s and 1930s Art Deco style influenced everything from art and architecture, interiors and furnishings, automobiles and boats, to the small, personal objects that are part of everyday life: cigarette cases and lighters, powder compacts, minaudières and cosmetic accessories, watches and jewelry, and even cameras. Surprisingly, despite the continuing strong interest in Art Deco, there has never previously been a book devoted to these objects, let alone one with such consistent, high-quality photography and carefully researched period illustrations, such as film stills and advertisements, that help bring the collectibles to life. The objects in this thematically structured book demonstrate Deco style at its most alluring, as well as the modernity, excitement and social revolution of the Jazz Age. The items then were the height of fashion, and to many they remain sought after as collectibles. They demonstrate an era of closer cooperation between designers and manufacturers, who aimed to produce goods that were not only fit for purpose, but also well made and beautiful.
Describes the life and career of the nineteenth-century French Neo-Impressionist artist Georges Seurat, best known for inventing the painting technique known as Pointillism.
