Tuscany Artists at Home PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tuscany Artists at Home free pdf Tuscany has always been a popular destination because of its artistic heritage and unique landscape, and dozens of books on Tuscan homes have attempted to analyze this preference and define the intrinsic style. Yet this definition of style rarely goes beyond a predefined stereotype as much of the authenticity has been lost, and the beautiful old farm-workers' houses, even the most modest, no longer exist. Even where conservation has been strictly observed, by changing the original use of these houses, previously the homes of those who worked on the land, the innate character has lost all meaning. However, yet another book on Tuscany only has sense if it can go beyond simple documentation of style by describing a way of life in order to define the essence of Tuscany. We have decided to illustrate this essence through the homes of twenty artists from all over the world and who, with that special sensitivity unique to artists, have decided to live in this region, merging with its character - its genius loci. Each artist brings his own history and creativity, but at the same time, diffuses a different atmosphere composed of inventive input and a respect for material elements that does not simply reproduce the past, but alludes to it with intensity and passion. Neither modest nor lavish, these houses demonstrate that sober elegance, uncontrived architecture and true harmony with the landscape are where the beauty of this region lies, a beauty that artists have always been able to embrace.
