Hopper ist Kult: 17 Stories von namhaften US-Autoren zu berühmten Gemälden des weltbekannten Malers Jedes Bild erzählt eine Geschichte. Für die Gemälde von Edward Hopper (1882 - 1967), einer Ikone der modernen amerikanischen Malerei, gilt das in besonderem Maße. Seine Porträts von Menschen, die auf rätselhafte Weise in ihre Einsamkeit versunken scheinen, lassen der Phantasie einen weiten Spielraum. Siebzehn renommierte US-Autoren haben sich inspirieren lassen, jede(r) von einem anderen Bild. Ihre Geschichten setzen dort an, wo das Gemälde als Momentaufnahme zwangsläufig aufhören muss, erzählen weiter, was verborgen in der Mimik, der Körpersprache der Figuren und in der festgehaltenen Szene zu erspüren ist. Entstanden ist eine vielschichtige, faszinierende Kollektion von Storys über die menschliche Existenz und ihre Abgründe. Realistisch, anrührend, beunruhigend - immer aber fesselnd und überraschend. Mit Geschichten von Stephen King, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, Joyce Carol Oates, Lawrence Block u.a.

Ein faszinierendes Leben in der italienischen Renaissance Machiavelli gilt als faszinierendster und einflussreichster Denker der italienischen Renaissance. Sein Hauptwerk »Il Principe – Der Fürst« verfasste er um 1513, und es wird noch heute als Brevier der rücksichtslosen Machtpolitik gelesen. Doch wer war Machiavelli wirklich? Ross King entwirft ein differenziertes Bild dieses ersten Realpolitikers der europäischen Geschichte und seiner Heimatstadt Florenz unter den mächtigen Medici.

Claude Monet's water lily paintings are among the most iconic and beloved works of art of the past century. Yet these entrancing images were created at a time of terrible private turmoil and sadness for the artist. The dramatic history behind these paintings is little known; Ross King's Mad Enchantment tells the full story for the first time and, in the process, presents a compelling and original portrait of one of our most popular and cherished artists. By the outbreak of war in 1914, Monet, then in his mid-seventies, was one of the world's most famous and successful painters, with a large house in the country, a fleet of automobiles and a colossal reputation. However, he had virtually given up painting following the death of his wife Alice in 1911 and the onset of blindness a year later. Nonetheless, it was during this period of sorrow, ill health and creative uncertainty that – as the guns roared on the Western Front – he began the most demanding and innovative paintings he had ever attempted. Encouraged by close friends such as Georges Clemenceau, France's dauntless prime minister, Monet would work on these magnificent paintings throughout the war years and then for the rest of his life. So obsessed with his monumental task that the village barber was summoned to clip his hair as he worked beside his pond, he covered hundreds of yards of canvas with shimmering layers of pigment. As his ambitions expanded with his paintings, he began planning what he intended to be his legacy to the world: the 'Musée Claude Monet' in the Orangerie in Paris. Drawing on letters and memoirs and focusing on this remarkable period in the artist's life, Mad Enchantment gives an intimate portrayal of Claude Monet in all his tumultuous complexity, and firmly places his water lily paintings among the greatest achievements in the history of art.
