Frameables: City Lights: 21 Prints for a Picture-Perfect Home
Author Pascaline Boucharinc
Introducing the first collection of art books with detachable prints to decorate your walls. Everything you need to create your own private gallery at home! Nightscapes that range from a fireworks display in Rome by Jacob Philipp Hackert to the Louvre from across a Parisian bridge by Maximilien Luce to a moonlit New York streetlamp by Georgia O'Keeffe.
Each book contains a curated selection of twenty-one high-quality reproductions that can be easily removed from the book, framed in a standard-size frame, and displayed in the home. Step-by-step tips for grouping the works to create a harmonious gallery add an interior designer's touch to the ensemble. Graphic, colorful, or abstract; paintings, engravings, or drawings--each work of art is explained on the back of the print. Interesting details about the style of painting, the particular work of art, and biographical information about the artist are accompanied by a "frameable fact" that helps you understand the context of that particular work in the history of art. In addition, suggestions for where you can go to see additional examples of the artists' works allow the reader to expand his or her experience and learning.
Artists include Edward Hopper, William Turner, Camille Pissarro, Paul Klee, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre Bonnard, Giorgio de Chirico, Georgia O'Keeffe, René Magritte, and Wassily Kandinsky.
