Treasures of Art Nouveau: Painting, Sculpture, Decorative Arts in the Gillion Crowet Collection
An extremely rich Belgian collection of Art Nouveau articles is behind the adventure leading to the conceiving of this book. Michel Draguet, in eight reference-filled chapters, guides the reader through the period between the end of the last century and the beginning of the present one, the herald of deep changes inspiring an art which, stemming from the symbolist and decadent instances, unfolds like a page of literature.
The articles of applied arts figuring in the book have the flavor of the poetry of Baudelaire and Mallarme, recall the microcosm of Proustian interiors and take us back to an atmosphere steeped in the contributions of several arts, from dance to painting and sculpture, wherein the search for new techniques clearly does not play merely a minor role. Between literature and industry, a portent of the new century striding in, Treasures of Art Nouveau gives us back the savor of a world fully aware of the winds of change.
Are the decorative sculpture panels of landscape architecture at Bally's Las Vegas beginning to look tired & worn out?
They're highly visible out there along Las Vegas Boulevard so I'd think Bally's'd want to make sure that they're spending however much money it takes to keep the things looking clean & new. Las Vegas Tourism thrives upon its fulfillment of american tourists' expectations of delicate pampering.

Decorative Sculpture at the entrance of Sri Krishnan Temple, Singapore
Sri Krishnan Temple (a.k.a Sri Krishna Temple), on Waterloo Street was established in 1870. It is the only South Indian Hindu temple in Singapore dedicated exclusively to Sri Krishna and his consort Rukmini.
Covering a wide array of great paintings, as well as rarely-published sculptural treasures and numerous masterpieces of the decorative arts, this is an illustrated survey of the Frick Collection, housed in a Fifth Avenue mansion in New York City. It was founded by Henry Clay Frick, an industrialist whose interest in and knowledge of art led him to begin buying artworks in about 1880. Separate sections of the book are devoted to paintings, sculpture and the decorative arts, presenting colour reproductions of some of the collection's most prized works. They include Bellini's "St Francis in the Desert", Holbein the Younger's portrait of Sir Thomas More, El Greco's "Purification of the Temple", three Vermeers, seascapes and landscapes by Turner, and works by Degas, Renoir, Monet and Whistler. There are also portrait busts by Andrea del Verrocchio and Jean-Antoine Houdon, and furniture made for Marie-Antoinette, as well as views of the mansion and the richly furnished rooms in which the works are installed.
In Art in the Frick Collection, museum director Charles Ryskamp takes readers on a tour of the Frick's permanent collection, including paintings by Rembrandt and Vermeer as well as Renaissance sculpture and 18th-century French furnishings. Ryskamp begins with a biography of Henry Clay Frick, detailing his development as an art collector, and then guides us through the evolution of the museum, which is housed in the Fifth Avenue mansion Frick himself helped design and in which he lived until his death. Large (in some cases full-page) photographs of art are naturally the focus here, but the accompanying text, written by the museum's curators, elucidates both the work and the artists who rendered it. Illustrating why Frick's collection is a model for many other notable American art collections, this graceful book is worth the price of admission.
