    vision that produce a work of art Brandt The Photography of Bill Brandt Bill Brandt one of the most prolific 20th century photographers is beautifully represented by this volume which contains nearly 400 of his black and white photographs These range from his famous starkly disturbing portraits of the denizens of either end of the social ladder to his late poetic landscapes and cool studied abstract nudes In between are several series that contain singular images of great familiarity such as his portrait of painter Francis Bacon in an eerie lamp lit landscape or the one of two housemaids in starched white caps standing at attention behind an upper crust dining room table Brandt s passionate interest in the shocking juxtaposition of the very rich and the very poor brought him a wide audience as well as accusations of being a Socialist propagandist During the Great Depression Brandt traveled to the north of England and made some of the most devastating pictures of his career exposing the extreme poverty and dignity of the area s coal miners Author Bill Jay has divided this book into eight sections A European Apprentice Observing the English Courting the Surreal Journeys North The Dark City Brandt made haunting pictures of wartime London during the blackouts A Return to Poetry Portraying the Artist and the Perfection of Form Jay s introduction is warm and perceptive and laced with juicy anecdotes Nigel Warburton another Brandt expert contributes an illustrated time line of Brandt s many professional assignments under the rubric The Career This carefully edited book demonstrates why Brandt has always enjoyed high stature among artists for it is packed with individual masterpieces But even if it were not it would be powerful simply for the breadth of Brandt s accomplishments David Hockney Modern Masters Series

    Zeffirelli s however it has many merits and many of them are emphasized on this beautifully reproduced DVD Visually because of the intense greens blues and reds the DVD is a knockout Your television will never have looked better Hockney goes for a less realistic more story book quality in his sets and costumes which is appropriate since Turandot is a fairy tale of sorts The colors and detail are far superior to the Laserdisc edition with less video noise in the backgrounds and more clarity of definition and detail Vocally Eva Marton is not in as fresh voice as she was in the 1987 telecast from the Met or the 1992 Chicago premier However her performance vocally and dramatically is so intense and powerful that occasional vocal lapses scarcely seem to matter Michael Sylvester does not have the vocal allure or richness of a Domingo or a Pavarotti but he sings solidly and with a secure ending to Nessun Dorma Kevin Langan is wonderful and moving as Timur with make up that certainly hides his true age The vocal stand out of this performance is Lucia Mazzaria She sounds in many spots like a young Freni with total mastery of color and style Her two arias in Act III are worthy of many repeat viewings The chorus is acceptable and for the most part accurate but somewhat lacking in darkness and richness of color in the Italian La Scala style David Runnicles conducting is appealing if not revealing This video is highly recommended but when the Met version is released you will want to own it as well for it s lavish and far more realistic sets and costumes from the always unbeatable Franco Zeffirelli VHS Behind the Scenes with David Hockney Since he burst upon the art scene in the middle of the Sixties David Hockney has been on of Britain s most successful painters To mark the artist s 50th birthday in 1988 London s Tate Gallery staged a major retrospective of Hockney s work David Hockeny at the Tate was prepared for the BBC s South Bank show and features a walk through interview with the artist conducted by Melvyn Bragg So often we are disappointed when we hear an artist writer actor musician talk about their work That is not a problem with this effort as Hockney talks about the inspiration behind several of his major works such as Portrait of My Father Mulholland Drive and We Two Boys Together Clinging One of the best parts of this 55 minute program is when the artist explains how he constructs his composite photographs as in A Visit with Christopher and Don There are certainly gaps in terms of covering particular aspects of Hockney s career but this is due more to the limitations of Tate s collection than omissions by Hockney or Bragg I think this program is superior to David Hockney Portrait of an Artist made five years earlier in the artist s London studio

  • Bio - David Hockney
    his studies at the Royal College and received considerable attention from critics professors and peers at several student shows At this time early on in Hockney s career his artwork was poetic and tended to tell stories He even wrote poetic ramblings on many of his paintings as well For a short time Hockney was in danger of not receiving his diploma because he had failed his Art History courses Nonetheless he was awarded the gold medal for outstanding distinction at the convocation and ended his college career on a tremendously good note In New York Hockney befriended Andy Warhol at whose studio young artists often met and socialized He also met Dennis Hopper that same night However Hockney s main purpose in returning to the States was not to meet peers but rather to travel to California Hockney had become fascinated with the images of young built and tan men in the publication Physique Pictorial which he had collected while in London and he was hungry to experience the sleazy underground world of Los Angeles He immediately loved the city and made Santa Monica his home Spending much of his day at Santa Monica pier Hockney would just people watch and admire the beautiful boys that seemed to be at the beach every day of the year This new environment greatly inspired him In his California paintings such as Man in Shower in Beverly Hills 1964 Hockney featured mainly wet sculpted men and typically colorful southern California architecture Overall he was enamoured of the more laid back sunny lifestyle that the city of Los Angeles provided It was around this time that Hockney developed the naturalistic realistic style he is most known for today In the summer of 1964 Hockney was invited to teach at the University of Iowa He was generally bored with this new milieu but was able to complete four paintings in six weeks there An old friend from London Ossie Clark came to America for the first time and visited Hockney in Iowa The two traveled across the country a bit visiting gay bars At the same time Hockney hosted his first American exhibition in New York He received rave reviews and sold every painting In December of 1964 Hockney returned to London to give a talk on homosexual imagery in America A year later he returned to America to teach at the University of Colorado in Boulder There he lived in an apartment without windows and painted the Rocky Mountains from his memory After his term there Hockney went to California with some old friends One night in Hollywood Hockney met the blond beach bum of his dreams a marvelous work of art called Bob and took him home The two drove to New York and Hockney flew Bob out to London but soon realized that it was a mistake and sent the boy home Two years later Hockney experienced his first true romance with a nineteen year old student named Peter Schlesinger Schlesinger
