Riguardo questo articolo

Language: English . Brand New Book. This comprehensive monograph captures the fashions, art, and fantasy of one of the world s most original fashion designers. Mariano Fortuny is an exceptional figure in the history of art and design. Born in Spain and raised in Paris, he is most associated with Venice--he was often called the magician of Venice --where he lived and worked at the legendary Palazzo Fortuny until his death in 1949. Fortuny excelled not only in fashion, but also as a painter, printmaker, photographer, textile designer, set designer, lighting engineer, and inventor--all covered in-depth in the book. However, Fortuny s creativity has had its most enduring legacy in the fashion world, and this comprehensive monograph includes much archival and previously unpublished material. Inspired by classical antiquity, Fortuny s legendary designs were fashion s first step toward modernity. His dresses featured finely pleated silks, often adorned with glass beads or similar objects, which flowed seductively over the female form, revealing its natural curves. His velvet capes were instantly popular, and the Delphos gown was favored by notable clients such as Eleanora Duse and Isadora Duncan. Fortuny s designs remain the ultimate example of fashion as art and continue to inspire twenty-first-century designers. Codice inventario libreria AAS9780847848171

Riassunto:

This comprehensive monograph captures the fashions, art, and fantasy of one of the world’s most original fashion designers.

Mariano Fortuny is an exceptional figure in the history of art and design. Born in Spain and raised in Paris, he is most associated with Venice—he was often called the “magician of Venice”—where he lived and worked at the legendary Palazzo Fortuny until his death in 1949.

Fortuny excelled not only in fashion, but also as a painter, printmaker, photographer, textile designer, set designer, lighting engineer, and inventor—all covered in-depth in the book. However, Fortuny’s creativity has had its most enduring legacy in the fashion world, and this comprehensive monograph includes much archival and previously unpublished material. Inspired by classical antiquity, Fortuny’s legendary designs were fashion’s first step toward modernity. His dresses featured finely pleated silks, often adorned with glass beads or similar objects, which flowed seductively over the female form, revealing its natural curves. His velvet capes were instantly popular, and the Delphos gown was favored by notable clients such as Eleanora Duse and Isadora Duncan. Fortuny’s designs remain the ultimate example of fashion as art and continue to inspire twenty-first-century designers.

Recensione:

"Mariano Fortuny was a renaissance man of art and fashion. Get to know his life and work in this comprehensive monograph." 
-THE SOCIETY DIARIES

Fortuny
is one of the most expansive, well-researched, lovingly written stories of a man and his legacy, both of which could easily be deemed genius. . . To say the book is illuminating and engrossing is gross understatement as few books of this genre have a subject who is this much of an artist, inventor, and createur. . . Fortuny is a book that truly stands alone due to its both visual and written contents; it is a book that must be read and not just browsed."
-NY JOURNAL OF BOOKS

"In his captivating prose, art historian de Osma invites readers to examine the sheer brilliance of one of the world’s most original designers. . . Mariano Fortuny continues to be a source of interest to designers and students, collectors and researchers, and historians and academics. His dresses are still timeless and proudly worn by women of great style. This comprehensive book shines the spotlight on all facets of Fortuny’s life and legacy, with archival and previously unpublished materials."
