This unprecedented volume considers the profound and enduring impact of Spain's history, art, and culture - on one of the greatest designers of the twentieth century, the legendary Cristobal Balenciaga. Hailed as "fashion's Picasso" by Cecil Beaton, Balenciaga created a revolutionary oeuvre that transformed the way women dressed. From the opening of his Paris fashion home in 1937 until his retirement in 1968, his visionary, ever-evolving designs and impeccable tailoring seduced generations of the most fashionable women in the world, including Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, the Duchess of Windsor, Gloria Guinness, Pauline de Rothschild, Mona Bismarck, Princess Grace of Monaco, Dons Duke, and Diana Vreeland. Published on the occasion of a major exhibition at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, this book traces the deep influence of the Spanish masters-from Zurbarân, Velâzquez, and Goya to Picasso and Miro-on the protean Balenciaga's designs. It also investigates the legacy of his native Spain's religious dress and ceremony, its lavish royal court, the tradition of flamenco dance, the drama of the bullfight, and the distinctive costumes of the country's diverse regions. Featuring never-before-published photographs by renowned artiste such as Richard Avedon and Irving Penn as well as remarkable documentary images from the archives of the home of Balenciaga, this illuminating and lavishly illustrated volume is a must-have for art and fashion connoisseurs.

When architects design private homes, they have the freedom to take risks and to articulate more thoroughly their stylistic and philosophical visions. Living Architecture is a grand-scale tour of the iconic houses of American architecture of the twentieth century. Designed by visionaries as diverse as Robert Venturi and Philip Johnson, the masterpieces selected for this edition blur the lines between dwellings and art, tracing a century of progression. Photography director Lucy Gilmour has chosen some of the world's most talented photographers to poetically capture the feel of these homes, giving readers rare, intimate glimpses into the architects' unique points of view. Author Dominique Browning guides us through a range of styles, eras, and innovations, from James Deering's Vizcaya (an Italian Renaissance-inspired villa in Miami) to postwar marvels by Bauhaus practitioners Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (Farnsworth House) and Marcel Breuer (Hooper House II) to more recent constructions, such as Marwan Al-Sayed's mirage-like House of Earth + Light in the Arizona desert. Floor plans of the homes and biographies of the architects complete this remarkable edition.
