  • Early RubensHardcover – March 11, 2019

    This book charts the evolution of Peter Paul Rubens’s style from 1608 until 1620 and his rise from relative anonymity to celebrity.In 1600, Peter Paul Rubens left his home in Antwerp to travel to Italy and study the Italian masters. Eight years later, he returned to Belgium and quickly established himself as one of the foremost painters in Western Europe. This book explores Rubens’s work from 1608 until 1620 and how, acutely aware of the possibilities for commercial success, he rose to fame by establishing a “brand” and promoting himself. He created multiple versions of paintings with subjects that had proven to be successful, used similar subject matter of famous artists in the past, and sought collaborators to create more ambitious works than he could have done alone. He also created a studio and workshop with numerous students and assistants, the most famous being Anthony van Dyck, who frequently collaborated with Rubens. Through paintings, drawings, and prints, this book shows how a desire for commercial success influenced and changed Rubens’s artistic style. Essays delve into Italy’s effect on Rubens, on the narrative aspect of his paintings, and how he managed commissions from famous patrons. Filled with new insights on the most fruitful phase of Rubens’s career, this book offers a refreshing look at one of the most influential Baroque artists.Copublished by the Art Gallery of Ontario and DelMonico Books

  • Joao Cruelles VR Consultor (Spanish Edition)

    Alexander Duyic transcribe el reflejo de años de trabajo en endogámicas y machistas consultorías informáticas multinacionales. A partir de esta base describe un mundo superpoblado donde el anarcocapitalismo controla el orden social, donde el mundo se reparte en pocas áreas de influencia corporativa y “las colonias”, áreas caóticas gobernadas por los despojos de la democracia; donde la Iglesia intenta mantener el control sobre las masas. Pero Joao Cruelles, VR Consultor, no es una novela social. Está más cercana a una novela negra, donde el personaje va asumiendo la soledad inherente de un mundo despiadado donde se rompen los arraigos hacia los lugares y las personas, hasta que, finalmente, se debe elegir entre someterse o rebelarse como individuo, con la desconfianza y la violencia como únicos medios de supervivencia.Sobre el autor:Alexander Duyic (Barcelona 1977)Ingeniero en informática fue pionero en la implantación de la Realidad Virtual en la industria. Primero ideando un sistema de visión estereoscópica en tiempo real y luego desarrollando diversos proyectos en el Centro de Realidad Virtual de Barcelona.Durante años fue coordinador en una de las consultorías informáticas más grandes del mundo.Mas info en www.duyic.vom
