Georges de La Tour ranks with Vermeer and the Le Nain brothers among those seventeenth-century painters whose unmistakable talent is matched only by the aura of mystery that surrounds the artists themselves. Jacques Thuillier's groundbreaking monograph, first published in 1993, places La Tour's oeuvre in the specific context of the Lorraine region where he lived and worked, but also repositions La Tour alongside the greatest European masters. Available for the first time in paperback, this beautifully designed volume, complete with an illustrated catalogue raisonné and translations of key documentary sources, remains the essential reference work on this important and fascinating artist.

Here are photographs by Al Bello, Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Georges Demeny, Toni Frissell, Ernst Haas, Danny Lyon, Annie Leibovitz, Stanley Kubrick, and 142 more, names not necessarily known to the public but their photgraphic work considered iconic...Here are photographs of Willie Mays...Rocky Graziano...Carl Lewis... Kobe Bryant...Magic Johnson...Satchel Paige...Muhammad Ali...Serena Williams...Bobby Orr...Jesse Owens...Mark Spitz...Secretariat... Gail Buckland's text, interwoven throughout and written with a grasp and a profound understanding of the history of photography, makes clear the importance and groundbreaking nature of this work and writes of the photographers and their technical and artistic advancements that, against all odds, captured the instant of the sport. Here are the classic images that capture the uncapturable, that allow us to experience the "kinetic beauty," that give us the essence and meaning--the transcendent power--of sports."
