on the left you’ll see my new book ART HISTORY FOR FILM MAKERS which hits the stores later in February. It’s a gorgeous imprint, I’m very pleased to see how high quality it is – lovely paper, great full colour images.
On the right is a book about the wonderful painter Titian, one of the pioneers of ‘cinematic painting’. I want to recommend him and his fantastic works. I didn’t write this book but I wrote about Titian in ART HISTORY FOR FILM MAKERS and am writing about him in my new book.
Below is an example of what’s in the book. This is a discussion of matte painting and cinema and the extraordinary production design of Alfred Junge in Black Narcissus. This film (directed by Michael Powell) was set in the Himalayas and is very convincing – despite the fact it was all filmed in a studio in London. A beautiful film.
and this is Bacchus and Ariadne by Titian. I love going to see it in the National Gallery
