Meshu - Turn your places into beautiful objects. Pierre Bergé & associés VENTES - SAMEDI 12 ET DIMANCHE 13 JUIN 2010 - PARISLes 12 et 13 juin prochains, Pierre Bergé & associés auront l’honneur de disperser les collections d’Anne et Jacques Kerchache à Drouot Montaigne. Elles seront représentées en majorité par les Arts Premiers, mais aussi par l’Extrême-Orient, l’Art Contemporain avec des oeuvres de Paul Rebeyrolle, Sam Szafran, par le Surréalisme (Max Ernst), par du mobilier de Designers (Ado Chale, Hervé Van Der Straeten), par une collection d’insectes, de minéraux … Cet ensemble est avant tout le reflet d’une vie consacrée à la passion des Arts Premiers, mais elle est aussi la manifestation de l’influence des surréalistes dans le choix des objets. Jacques Kerchache (1942-2001) possédait à la fois la passion de l’oeuvre et le bonheur de la communiquer. Devenue Mme Kamal Douaoui, Anne et son époux ouvrent une nouvelle page du livre de leurs passions.

Pietà (Michelangelo) Detail of Mary The structure is pyramidal, and the vertex coincides with Mary's head. The statue widens progressively down the drapery of Mary's dress, to the base, the rock of Golgotha. The figures are quite out of proportion, owing to the difficulty of depicting a fully-grown man cradled full-length in a woman's lap. The marks of the Crucifixion are limited to very small nail marks and an indication of the wound in Jesus' side. The Madonna is represented as being very young for the mother of a 33 year old son, which is not uncommon in depictions of her at the time of the Passion of Christ. Do you not know that chaste women stay fresh much more than those who are not chaste? Another explanation suggests that Michelangelo's treatment of the subject was influenced by his passion for Dante's Divina Commedia: so well-acquainted was he with the work that when he went to Bologna he paid for hospitality by reciting verses from it. The process took less than two years. Coordinates:

Master Technika Linhof Master Technika – Special Edition “120 Years Linhof” Linhof was founded in 1887. In 2007 we have celebrated the 120th anniversary issueing a limited special series of Master Technika 3000 with red leathering and other additional features.

The Linhof Master Technika is a camera system for the discriminating individualist creating breath-taking images far away from mass production.

Neo Gothic Gothic Revival (also referred to as Victorian Gothic, Neo-Gothic or Jigsaw Gothic, and when used for school, college, and university buildings as Collegiate Gothic) is an architectural movement that began in the late 1740s in England. Its popularity grew rapidly in the early 19th century, when increasingly serious and learned admirers of neo-Gothic styles sought to revive medieval Gothic architecture, in contrast to the neoclassical styles prevalent at the time. Gothic Revival architecture often has certain features,derived from the original Gothic architecture style, including decorative patterns, finals, scalloping, lancet windows, hood moldings and label stops. Relation to other cultural movements[edit] The Gothic Revival was paralleled and supported by "medievalism", which had its roots in "antiquarian' concerns with survivals and curiosities. Survival and revival[edit] A younger generation, taking Gothic architecture more seriously, provided the readership for J.

Master Technika classic Master Technika classic The fact that the Linhof Master Technika has achieved a certain cult status has several good reasons: This equipment is a noble tool and a real status symbol for the ambitious photographer.

Yesiree! Our lenses are compatible with all iPhones, iPods, iPads, Androids ... basically any device that has a lens on it. If you can stick an adhesive ring on it, you can put a Photojojo lens on it. Buuuut how about the iPhone 4/4S/5/5s/5c? Each lens comes with three special rings that we designed just for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5s, and 5c. What about my iPhone 3G/S or iPod 5? The lenses will work with the iPhone 3G/S and/or your iPod 5 - but not perfectly. Can I use these lenses with a case on my phone? You totally can! What if I want to take the rings off my phone? Just lift it off and wipe off the phone with a dampened soft cloth. How about those rings … how big are they and how many do I get? The diameters of the ring are 13.06mm (outer) and 9.38mm (inner). Ok, so how big are the lenses? The lenses range between 16mm to 25mm in diameter and are from 6.5mm to 10mm tall. What’s the magnification on these bad boys? What’s the focusing range on the macro lens?

The History of Visual Communication This website, which contains the material of the course VA312, taught at Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey; attempts to walk you through the long and diverse history of a particular aspect of human endeavour: The translation of ideas, stories and concepts that are largely textual and/or word based into a visual format, i.e. visual communication. Wikipedia defines visual communication as: The primary tool by which man has visualised ideas is through the usage of writing and, by extension, type: Writing/type is the visual manifestation of the spoken word. And words are what we communicate with. I shall loosely be following P.B. I am very proud of my heritage as a graphic designer.
