Few groups of artists and writers have been the object of as much study as the Bloomsbury group. This book, originally published in 1976, was the first to look at the contribution of the painters of the group, Vanessa Bell (1879-1961) and Duncan Grant (1885-1978), not only within the context of Bloomsbury but also from the wider perspective of modern British art. In a vivid narrative, Richard Shone weaves together the artists' private lives and professional careers during the first decades of this century. He illuminates their friendships within Bloomsbury, notably with the critic and painter Roger Fry, with Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey, Maynard Keynes and Lady Ottoline Morrell, and in the world of painting with figures such as Picasso, Derain and Sickert. Chapters are devoted to the artists' early careers, to the advent of the Omega Workshops, the artists' discovery of Charleston (their home in Sussex) and their work as decorative designers between the two World Wars.Bloomsbury Portraits, which received wide acclaim on first publication, has long been out of print. This edition has been revised throughout, and incorporates new information and over 80 colour illustrations. Much of the vividness of the book and its authentic evocation of the Bloomsbury artists' lives and times comes from Shone's first-hand experience of Charleston and his friendship with Duncan Grant in the last years of the painter's life.

Providing a thorough and comprehensive introduction to the study of photography, this second edition of Photography: The Key Concepts has been expanded and updated to cover more fully contemporary changes to photography. Photography is a part of everyday life; from news and advertisements, to data collection and surveillance, to the shaping of personal and social identity, we are constantly surrounded by the photographic image. Outlining an overview of photographic genres, David Bate explores how these varied practices can be coded and interpreted using key theoretical models. Building upon the genres included in the first edition – documentary, portraiture, landscape, still life, art and global photography – this second edition includes two new chapters on snapshots and the act of looking. The revised and expanded chapters are supported by over three times as many photographs as in the first edition, examining contemporary practices in more detail and equipping students with the analytical skills they need, both in their academic studies and in their own practical work. An indispensable guide to the field, Photography: The Key Concepts is core reading for all courses that consider the place of photography in society, within photographic practice, visual culture, art, media and cultural studies.

Portraits of Wittgenstein is a splendid anthology of almost all the personal memoirs of Wittgenstein's relatives, friends, pupils and acquaintances. Collectively they provide a remarkable portrait of the greatest philosopher of the twentieth century, vividly depict his circle of friends, and illuminate the relationship between the man and his philosophy. The enterprise of Thoemmes Press, as so often, makes available to the public a large collection of significant writings not otherwise readily available. --P.M.S. Hacker Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) was one of the most influential and yet elusive personalities in the history of modern philosophy, and a figure who continues to fascinate. Portraits of Wittgenstein is a major collection of memoirs, recollections and articles on the life of this great philosopher, primarily by those who knew him. Revealing the many features of Wittgenstein's character and the power of his personality more vividly and comprehensively than ever before, these moving portraits show how much genuine friendship meant to Wittgenstein, his warmth and kindness and the life-long influence he had on the lives of those he met. The philosopher's ruthless honesty and uncompromising integrity, however, often resulted in stern advice and harsh rebukes to friends and foes alike. These fascinating and lucid recollections and impressions, often at odds with each other, also reveal Wittgenstein's charm and wonderful sense of humour, as well as his suffering and despair. The wealth of illuminating information and profound insights into Wittgenstein's extraordinary life make this an essential resource for a better understanding of the unity between this misunderstood man and his philosophy. Portraits of Wittgenstein also throws valuable light upon the personalities of his intellectual and social circle, including Bertrand Russell, G. E. Moore, F. R. Leavis, A. J. Ayer, Karl Popper, G. H. von Wright and Rush Rhees. This collection of valuable and hard-to-find material is an indispensable biographical resource for libraries, scholars and students of the life and work of Wittgenstein. --the only comprehensive collection of memoirs, recollections and articles on the life of Ludwig Wittgenstein --a wealth of insights and remarks that disclose, to the greatest extent thus far, the personality and character of one of the most influential and yet elusive personalities in the history of modern philosophy --4 volumes of reset materials, fully indexed, with a new introduction --contributors include: Hermine Wittgenstein, Bertrand Russell, G. E. Moore, David Pinsent, Paul Engelmann, Rudolf Carnap, Julian Bell, Fania Pascal, F. R. Leavis, Iris Murdoch, A. J. Ayer, Norman Malcolm, Karl Popper, G. H. von Wright, Rush Rhees and M. O'C. Drury

We live in a complex age, with multiple challenges to the practice of educational leadership, and where there is widespread evidence of individuals wanting to retire early from leadership positions, and of fewer wishing to take up the role. This highly experienced team of cross-cultural researchers combine scholarly research with over a decade of extensive empirical research using an innovative 'portrait' methodology to investigate the challenges that educational leaders on two continents currently face. The kinds of challenges described include: · the personal (e.g. being new to the job, coping with the role, approaching retirement) · the inter-personal (e.g. power relations, personal challenges with staff, parents and children) · the local (e.g. issues faced by the school in the community) · the national (e.g. government initiatives, inspection) · the global (e.g. the impact of economic forces on political and institutional management). Sustainable School Leadership then contributes to the field of educational leadership in several ways. First, the authors bring scholarly enquiry to life by providing detailed descriptions of the challenges which individual educational leaders face in different cultures in a globalised world. Second, they show how the combined insights from individual portraits provide important and meaningful critiques of national policies and organizational functioning. Such critiques can then inform current and future leadership research by a better understanding of how links between the micro-, meso-, and macro-levels of education promote or discourage school leaders' sustainability. Finally, the authors present important cross-cultural comparisons of eastern and western approaches to educational leadership, suggesting that sustainability – or a lack of it – may have different roots in different cultures. Sustainable School Leadership is relevant to students on educational leadership and management courses, academics and researchers and school leaders.

Richard Hickman considers effective teaching across the curriculum, examining the notion that successful teachers of art and design are amongst the best teachers of any subject with much to offer outside their discipline in terms of pedagogy. The case study approach focuses on adolescent learning, although much of what is considered is applicable to all ages and phases of education, to consider the following questions: What are the characteristics of successful art teaching? How do individual life experiences inform art teachers' teaching? How in turn might others benefit from their pedagogical practices? Using self-portraiture, autoethnography and autobiography, Hickman draws together the varied experiences of a group of art teachers to explore a range of issues, including identity, learning environment and the nature of the teacher/learner relationship, which are discussed with clarity and imagination.
