Two Caravans

Two Caravans

A field of strawberries in Kent …And sitting in it two caravans — one for the men and one for the women. The residents are from all over: miner’s son Andriy is from the old Ukraine, while sexy young Irina is from the new: they eye each other warily. There are the Poles Tomasz and Yola, two Chinese girls and Emanuel from Malawi. They’re all here to pick strawberries in England’s green and pleasant land. But these days England’s not so pleasant for immigrants. Not with Russian gangster-wannabes like Vulk, who’s taken a shine to Irina and thinks kidnapping is a wooing strategy. And so Andriy — who really doesn’t fancy Irina, honest — must set off in search of that girl he’s not in love with.

Paint Family: The De Brays

Paint Family: The De Brays

Jan De Bray and his father Salomon are the greatest history painters that Haarlem ever produced. The two artists also determined the face of Harleem Classicism. Both Salomon and Jan were universally gifted, not only as painters but also as architects, poets and art theorists. It is small wonder that Salomon — just like the slightly younger Pieter de Grebber — was commissioned to decorate Paleis Huis ten Bosch that Amalia van Solms had built in honor of her recently deceased husband Frederik Hendrik. Jan carried out many commissions for Haarlem’s governing nobility, including three mantel paintings for the town hall and several regent portraits for various Haarlem institutions. The artist was an eminent portrait painter and following Frans Hals’ death became the favored portraitist of Haarlem’s elite. Many of his clients had themselves portrayed in the guise of a biblical or mythological figure for a so called portrait history, a genre in which Jan excelled. His brothers Dirck and Joseph were active as still-life painters.

Altagamma: Italian Excellence in Design

Altagamma: Italian Excellence in Design

A visual celebration of Italian luxury design and the essence of “Made in Italy” sensibility.
The Altagamma Foundation promotes Italian companies such as Artemis, Valentino, and Versace, whose brands are prized for innovation, quality, service, design, and excellence as well as the traditional culture of artisanship that sustains them.
To mark the foundation’s twentieth anniversary, this volume celebrates Italy’s fabled luxury brands as captured by some of the world’s most important photographers, including Paolo Pellegrin, Alex Majoli, Massimo Siragusa, Lorenzo Cicconi Massi, Daniele Hernan, and Marta Sarlo, among others. In these images, each brand is no longer just an icon of luxury, but becomes a summation of something uniquely Italian: a synthesis of culture, conviction, and entrepreneurial spirit.
