Caravaggio: Painter of Miracles (Eminent Lives)
Caravaggio: Painter of Miracles (Eminent Lives)
NBA finalist Francine Prose takes on a great artist whose life was brief and paradoxical, more loathed in his own time than any modern artist since. This is a study of why revolutionary art can be reviled in its own time and revered in another. Building on a biographical tradition that can be traced back to Aubrey's ‘Brief Lives’, Dr Johnson's ‘Lives of the Poets’ and Lytton Strachey's ‘Eminent Victorians’, this exciting and ground-breaking new series pairs great biographers, historians and novelists with iconic subjects, the writing bristling with original and distinctive points of view. Francine Prose's life of Caravaggio evokes the genius of this great artist through a brilliant reading of his paintings. Caravaggio defied the aesthetic conventions of his time; his use of ordinary people, realistically portrayed – street boys, prostitutes, the poor, the aged – was a profound and revolutionary innovation that left its mark on generations of artists. His insistence on p…

The story of a remarkable time and place: Los Angeles from the dawn of the singer-songwriter era in the mid-Sixties to the peak of The Eagles' success in the late Seventies.

Hoskyn's history of this vital period in the development of today's great musical influences spans the rise of Joni Mitchell, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, The Eagles, James Taylor and Jackson Browne, and focuses on the brilliance and determination of David Geffen, the man who linked them all. Covering genius, drug-crazed disintegration, and the myriad relationships between these artists and the songs that issued from them, and drawing on extensive interviews with countless stars, singers, writers, managers, executives and scenesters, 'Hotel California' is a pop-culture classic.

About Art & Culture Books

The world around us is full of diversities. We are different in terms of social habits, music preferences, languages and more factors. In short, we follow different cultures. Art is a medium of communication which helps us converse via sound, images and stories. Read on to explore art and culture books that help us know more in this regard. 

Culture is defined as the characteristics of a group of people based on their language, religion, choice of music, social habits and more factors. The word culture has been taken from its Latin root cultura or cultus that means “inhabit, cultivate or honour”. Art is an expression of imagination or creativity and is a subdivision of culture. Similar to culture, the word art is also taken from its Latin origin ars that means “arrangement”. The three main branches of art include painting, architecture and sculptures. Art and culture are closely related as both influence each other. When put together, these two helps us shape the way we perceive the world around us. However, this is just surface information. So, let us explore popular art and culture books to gain insights.  

Exploring various art and culture books to read

Art and culture books come in a wide variety of topics ranging from painting and music to social culture, theatre and even philosophy. Different parts of the world follow the different culture and art forms. Culture is a crucial part of people’s lives. It affects our values, views, happiness, hopes and even preferences. Therefore, the importance of understanding culture cannot be overlooked. Art, on the other hand, plays a crucial role in the conceptual culture of a society. We live in a world full of diversities. For overall well-being, community builders have to understand various cultures and establish a good relationship between them. Read on to know about various art and culture books that can help you in the process.

Books about culture and society

We live in a world full of diversities. We are different in terms of skills, abilities, values, personality traits and most importantly cultures. However, integration across multi-cultural groups can be challenging at times. To build communities that are great at solving current problems, we must appreciate various cultures. Books about culture and society help you understand and contribute to the world in a meaningful manner. They guide us on diverse ethnic identities around the globe. Books on world culture combine different theoretical perspectives with telling us about globalization theory, polity approaches and historical treatment. Reading them, we can figure out the composite effects of culture on society, people and organizations.

Artbooks and creativity

Artbooks have interesting materials to explore ranging from the earliest cave paintings to modern arts. Art has a significant effect on culture and society. Sculpture, painting, literature, music and other forms of arts act as a repository of a culture’s memory. Reading arts allow us to understand different cultures and ages by means of sound, images and stories. There is an interesting relationship between art and the human brain. For instance, researchers at Newcastle University conducted a study and found that perceiving contemporary visual art had constructive effects on the lives of nursing home-bound elders. So, help foster the creative you by indulging into art and creativity.

Cultural and art books for kids

We live in a diverse world where people lead different lives within the same group, state or country. To raise kids in such a place, it is essential to make them aware of people and places out of their immediate family. So, if you want to introduce a world view to your kids, cultural and art books offer a great way. They help kids coming from different cultures stay united by sharing characteristics in the form of music, art, food and even stories. Remember that it is never too early to teach your kids about diversity and inclusion.

Tips on buying Art and Culture Books in the UAE

Art and culture together form an interesting area to explore. The history of these two subjects is as big as the history of the world. Therefore, if you are new to reading, you can easily get confused with the number of options you have to read. There are various books released by different authors focusing on different topics such as cultural diversity, social background, ethnic background and tension and conflicts.

  • Consider the topic book focuses on – Art and culture books come in a variety of subject matters including folklore, history, myth, visual arts, sculpting, literature and more. So, process in your mind which one you want to explore and then look for the relevant books.

 

  • Who’s the author? – If you are a hardcore reader, then you must be having a list of authors whose releases you just cannot miss.

Knowing about the author’s writing style and selection of words would help you make the right selection.

 

  • Consider the source– The next consideration in the list is the source from where you are purchasing the book. Art and culture books are accessible through both online and physical stores.

You can find their collection right here at Shops.ae. Besides, there are various eBook stores which provide art books for free. You do not get a physical copy in this case, but yes, you can access the content online.

 

  • Look at the price– Art and culture books come in different price slabs based on the number of pages, authors, publishers and other factors. So, if you have a restricted budget, then it is an important consideration. You can also find different prices on different websites. So, here’s the way out.
