Books By Author Erika Langmuir

Closer Look by Erika Langmuir Closer Look, Paperback (November 2010)

Examines the special fascination of still life, and what distinguishes it from other categories of painting. The author discusses its evolution from the trompe l'oeil wall paintings of antiquity, through its revival in the age of Caravaggio and Velazquez, and again in the works of Cezanne and Picasso.

Closer Look: Angels by Erika Langmuir Closer Look: Angels, Paperback (May 2010)

Angels are an integral part of Christian art, performing a multitude of roles. Massed together they may form a heavenly choir, glorifying the Virgin Mary or commenting on the surrounding action. This guide helps readers identify angels and their significance in a painting - be it from the National Gallery or from other collections.

Closer Look: Allegory by Erika Langmuir Closer Look: Allegory, Paperback (May 2010)

When we say that 'Love is blind' or 'Time flies' - making concepts sound like living beings - we are using the language of allegory. Painters have long relied on allegory to create 'message pictures'. This guide helps readers understand the language of allegory within Western painting - be it from the National Gallery or from other collections.

A guide that helps readers identify saints and their significance in a painting - be it from the National Gallery or from other collections.
