Rubens : portraits after existing prototypes
Jonckheere, Koenraad, author
London : Harvey Miller Publishers, [2016]
Rubens was mesmerised by faces. He studied physiognomy, the pseudo-science that began making headway in the sixteenth century, which postulated that a person's character could be read from their facial features. He made geometrical analyses of the faces of ancient emperors and heroes. He invested a great deal of time in detailed anatomical studies, sometimes based on nature, and equally often on antique busts and coins. At times it seems as though the master wanted to know and understand every nook and cranny of the human face. To this end he studied man himself and the way in which the ancients dealt with nature. His best portrait copies, thus, are not strictly copies but rather studies in which art history, craftsmanship, literature and theory merge into an emulation of art and nature. They are works in which the artist was looking for what ultimately captivated him the most: man in all of his myriad facets, and the perspectives art afforded to better understand man.

Indigenous archives : the making and unmaking of Aboriginal art
edited by Darren Jorgensen and Ian Mclean
Crawley, Western Australia : UWA Publishing, 2017
The archive is a source of power. It takes control of the past, deciding which voices will be heard and which won't, how they will be heard and for what purposes. Indigenous archivists were at work well before the European Enlightenment arrived and began its own archiving. Sometimes at odds, other times not, these two ways of ordering the world have each learned from, and engaged with, the other. Colonialism has been a struggle over archives and its processes as much as anything else. The eighteen essays by twenty authors investigate different aspects of this struggle in Australia, from traditional Indigenous archives and their developments in recent times to the deconstruction of European archives by contemporary artists as acts of cultural empowerment. It also examines the use of archives developed for other reasons, such as the use of rainfall records to interpret early Papunya paintings. Indigenous Archives is the first overview of archival research in the production and understanding of Indigenous culture. Wide-ranging in its scope, it reveals the lively state of research into Indigenous histories and culture in Australia.

"Hannah Gluckstein (who called herself Gluck; 1895-1976) was a distinctive, original voice in the early evolution of modern art in Britain. This handsome book presents a major reassessment of Gluck'slife and work, examining, among other things, the artist's numerous personal relationships and contemporary notions of gender and social history. Gluck's paintings comprise a full range of artistic genres--still life, landscape, portraiture--as well as images of popular entertainers. Financially independent and somewhat freed from social convention, Gluck highlighted her sexual identity, cutting her hair short and dressing as a man, and the artistis known for a powerful series of self-portraits that played with conventions of masculinity and femininity. Richly illustrated, this volume is a timely and significant contribution to gender studies and to the understanding of a complex and important modern painte"--

Pereira, Priya, book artist
[Mumbai, India] : Pixie Bks, [2008]
"This book serves to highlight the techniue of punishment also kown as writing "lines" in school. It monitors the numbing process of the mind. What starts innocuously as a repetition of a line gradually degenerates into an exhaustion of the words carelessly looping and sloping, and finally exhibiting the physical and mental blurring of the intellect. Which is exactly what an imposition sets out to do"--Colophon.

A new American sculpture, 1914-1945 : Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach
edited by Andrew J. Eschelbacher ; essays by Andrew J. Eschelbacher, Michaela R. Haffner, Ronald Harvey, Shirley Reece-Hughes, Roberta K. Tarbell
Portland, Maine : Portland Museum of Art ; ©2017
This is the first publication to situate the individual contributions of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman, and William Zorach into a compelling constellation of artists with shared aesthetic and social concerns. Although each European-born, American artist cultivated his own distinct style, their creative priorities were all deeply rooted in quiet composition, synthetic approaches to anatomy, and architectural unity of curves and volume. At a time when abstract forms were popular, Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach were all ultimately in favor of maintaining the integrity of the human body to explore modernist styles. This handsome book underscores their unrelenting search for a novel American visual tradition at the intersection of modernism, historic visual culture, and contemporary popular imagery. Exhibition: Portland Museum of Art, Portland, USA (26.05-03.09.2017); Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth, USA (17.02-13.05.2018).

Ebrahim Alkazi : directing art : the making of a modern Indian art world
edited by Parul Dave-Mukherji ; with contributions by Amal Allana and five others
New Delhi, India : Art Heritage in association with Mapin Publishing, Ahmedabad, India, 2016
An exploration of the life and work of Ebrahim Alkazi -While most treatises on his work focus on his involvement with theater, this volume takes an in-depth look at Alkazi's extensive engagement with the arts, as well as how his work reflects on his family, and the post-colonial scene in India -Contains 400 color illustrations, including those of art exhibited at Art Heritage gallery, previously unpublished The doyen of India's art and theater scenes, Ebrahim Alkazi has been credited with garnering worldwide visibility for Indian art. Ebrahim Alkazi: Directing Art explores how his unique way of locating Indian art within a broader framework led to several formal engagements with artists such as MF Husain, FN Souza, SH Raza, Gieve Patel, and Anish Kapoor, among others. This volume brings together over 400 paintings, many of them exhibited at Art Heritage, and previously unpublished. They chase Alkazi's landmark exhibitions of European modern art in 1954, a result of his and his wife Roshen's passionate engagement with contemporary artistic production. Featuring several conversations and essays, Directing Art provides a context for the Alkazis' participation in the evolution of a transnational history of modernism, and their long association with the Progressive Artists Group. Also included is an intimate portrayal by Amal Allana, Alkazi's daughter, who talks of her father's passion for art and theater, his revolutionary multi-disciplinary style, and the bohemian world of Mumbai's post-colonial art scene. A chronicle of the remarkable life and work of Ebrahim Alkazi, Directing Art is an invaluable education in Indian art.

Arthur Singer : the wildlife art of an American master
Singer, Paul, 1946- author
Rochester, New York : RIT Press, [2017]
Arthur B. Singer was an American wildlife artist specializing in bird illustration. In a career spanning five decades, he illustrated more than 20 books, including his masterpiece, Birds of the World, as well as classic bird guides: Birds of North America, Birds of Europe, and The Hamlyn Guide to Birds of Britain and Europe. Singer joined the U.S. Army in 1942 and was assigned to Company C of the 603rd Camouflage Engineers. As a member of unit, known as the "Ghost Army," Singer along with other artists, created camouflage and other forms of deception on the battlefields of Europe. Upon his return to the U.S., he worked briefly in an advertising agency and became a full-time illustrator and artist in 1955. During the 1980s, assisted by his son, Alan, Singer's paintings of state birds were seen by millions when the U.S. Postal Service issued the State Birds & Flowers postage stamps. The stamps became one of the largest selling commemoratives in U.S. Postal history. He received the Hal Borland Award in 1985 from the National Audubon Society. His paintings are represented in several public and private collections in the United States and Europe. Since his death in 1990, retrospectives of Singer's artwork have been presented in several museums and art galleries across the U.S.

Queer threads : crafting identity and community
Chaich, John, author
[Los Angeles, California] : Ammo, [2017]
Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community showcases twenty-nine artists who are moving through the narrow space that is gay or straight, biological or social, craft and fine art and doing so explicitly through their work in fiber and textile. Loaded with gender connotations and power hierarchies, fiber-based handicrafts such as crochet, embroidery, knitting, macrame, quilting, and sewing provide a fitting platform for examining tastes, roles, and relationships socialized within and around gay and lesbian culture, as well as our reactions to the traditional home and cultures in which we were raised. This book evolves from an exhibition of the same name, that John Chaich curated in 2014 at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art in New York City, the first dedicated LGBTQ art museum in the world with a mission to exhibit and preserve LGBTQ art and foster the artists who create it. While other recent, high-profile fiber and textile exhibitions have featured several of the artists in Queer Threads, the Leslie-Lohman exhibition marked the first time these works were shown together to specifically examine the works queerness. To further examine how queerness informs each featured artist's work in fiber and textiles, or vice versa, this book features interviewers from the worlds of music, fashion, media, dance, museums, and scholarship who are makers and thinkers themselves, many members of the queer community if not powerful allies. The resulting dialogues are as fun, challenging, personal, and universal as the ideas in the works discussed.

Architecture and the Turkish city : an urban history of Istanbul since the Ottomans
Gül, Murat, author
London ; I.B. Tauris, 2017
Architecture and urban planning have always been used by political regimes to stamp their ideologies upon cities, and this is especially the case in the modern Turkish Republic. By exploring Istanbul's modern architectural and urban history, Murat Gül highlights the dynamics of political and social change in Turkey from the late Ottoman period until today. Looking beyond pure architectural styles or the physical manifestations of Istanbul's cultural landscape, he offers critical insight into how Turkish attempts to modernise have affected both the city and its population. Charting the diverse forces evident in Istanbul's urban fabric, the book examines late Ottoman reforms, the Turkish Republic's turn westward for inspiration, Cold War alliances and the AK Party's reaffirmation of cultural ties with the Middle East and the Balkans. Telltale signs of these moments - revivalist architecture drawing on Ottoman and Seljuk styles, 1930s Art Deco, post-war International Style buildings and the proliferation of shopping malls, luxurious gated residences and high-rise towers, for example - are analysed and illustrated in extensive detail. Connecting this rich history to present-day Istanbul, whose urban development is characterised anew by intense social stratification, the book will appeal to researchers of Turkey, its architecture and urban planning.

Mel Bochner : Voices
Bochner, Mel, 1940- artist
New York, NY : Peter Freeman, Inc., [2017]
Mel Bochner (b. 1940) is recognized as one of the leading figures in the development of Conceptual art in New York in the 1960s and 1970s. He pioneered the introduction of the use of language in the visual, probing the way they relate to one another to make us more attentive to the unspoken codes that underpin our visual engagement with the world. Featuring color plates of more than thirty new, previously unpublished paintings, and accompanied by an essay by Jeremy Sigler, this handsome publication offers a new perspective on Mel Bochner's career-long engagement with language and painting. Sigler points to how Bochner's newest images poignantly signal a return to visceral materiality, revealing the unexpected painterly roots of his body of work.

Canaletto & the art of Venice
Razzall, Rosie, author
London : Royal Collection Trust, 2017
The Royal Collection has one of the largest and finest collections of Venetian art from the first half of the eighteenth century. It includes paintings, prints and drawings by Canaletto himself, as well as those of his contemporaries, such as Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Antonio Visentini, Francesco Zuccarelli and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. These artists were patronised by Consul Smith and their works were later purchased by George III. This lavishly illustrated catalogue marks the first time that the rich holdings of eighteenth-century Venetian art in the Royal Collection will have been brought together, and focuses on presenting these extraordinary works against the background of the social and artistic networks of the period. Whilst displaying and analysing the brilliant works of Canaletto himself, including his cityscapes, capriccios and paintings of architecture, this catalogue also discusses the intimate interior of Venetian life, explores the links between artists and the theatre in Venice at this time and looks at Venice as a centre for printmaking and book production.

Ghost storeys : Ralph Adams Cram, modern Gothic media, and deconstructive microhistory at a Canadian church
Macdonell, Cameron, author
Montreal ; McGill-Queen's University Press, [2017]
"Do modern Gothic buildings and books have more in common than the "Gothic" adjective? Scholars have limited this question to British author/architects of the eighteenth century. However, Ralph Adams Cram (1863--1942) was America's most prolific and vocal advocate of Gothic Revival architecture, and he published a book of Gothic ghost stories in 1895. Ghost Storeys consequently offers the first comprehensive study of Cram's interdisciplinary Gothic aesthetics, deconstructing the boundaries of architecture and literature. For Cram, ghosts are manifestations of social sickness, and the unusual commission of a Canadian church allowed him to exercise his pessimistic revival of Gothic architecture in an ailing modern world. The lead patron, Edward Walker of eponymous Walkerville, Ontario, commissioned the church for his company town because he was secretly dying of syphilis, and Cram put Walker's regeneration in the hands of a Grail knight who might never come. Walkerville's Anglican architecture is haunted by a future that Cram himself could not provide, and through the intricate intersections of Gothic aesthetics, architectural ethics, and company town construction in Edwardian Canada, Cameron Macdonell opens new perspectives on the modern failure to resurrect the past. What came back from the Gothic grave was a tormented revenant in need of miraculous intervention. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Ghost Storeys is a microhistory that redefines the allegorical relationship between a marginalized Canadian church and the Gothic Revival as a global interdisciplinary phenomenon."--

Legati da una cintola : l'Assunta di Bernardo Daddi e l'identità di una città
a cura di Andrea De Marchi, Cristina Gnoni Mavarelli
Firenze : Mandragora, [2017]
La Sacra Cintola, la cintura della Vergine custodita nel Duomo che per secoli è stata il tesoro più prezioso di Prato, è un simbolo religioso e civile, fulcro delle vicende artistiche della città ed elemento cardine della sua identità. La sottile striscia (di 87 centimetri) di lana di capra broccata in filo d'oro è il fulcro di un'esposizione che comprende altre opere di valore, prima tra tutte la pala di Bernardo Daddi del 1337-1338 che racconta la leggenda di come la reliquia sia stata consegnata a San Tommaso dalla Madonna al momento dell'Assunzione, sia stata portata a Prato verso il 1141 dal mercante pratese Michele Dagomari e da questi donata nel 1172, alla pieve della città.0Il catalogo dell'esposizione illustra, oltre naturalmente alla reliquia solitamente conservata nella cappella di Agnolo Gaddi nel Duomo, la serie di dipinti, sculture e miniature in mostra, che testimoniano le varie elaborazioni del tema dell'Assunta che dona la propria cintola.0In aggiunta, testi e foto propongono lo studio della cappella affrescata da Gaddi, la prepositura di Santo Stefano, le ostensioni che abitualmente avvengono a Prato e la storia del suo culto nei secoli. Exhibition: Museo di Palazzo Pretorio, Prato, Italy (07.09.2017-14.01.2018).

Cinisello Balsamo (Milano) : Silvana, 2017
"È dedicato ad Ambrogio Lorenzetti questo volume, edito in occasione dell'importante mostra ospitata nell'autunno 2017 a Siena.0Ambrogio Lorenzetti, fratello minore di Pietro, è autore di celeberrimi affreschi tra i quali Le Allegorie del Buono e Cattivo Governo nel Palazzo Pubblico di Siena, considerate il suo capolavoro.0Da decenni la produzione del maestro - la cui attività è documentata dal 1319 al 1348 - non veniva compiutamente analizzata nel suo insieme, e l'occasione dei recenti restauri di diverse sue opere - cicli ad affresco e tavole - ha offerto importante materia di riflessione, confluita nei saggi qui raccolti.0Il volume offre quindi un contributo di grande rilevanza alla conoscenza di questo pittore, che si distingue non solo per la potenza delle sue composizioni, per i brillanti cromatismi e per la complessa simbologia delle sue opere mature, ma anche per l'originalità di certe invenzioni iconografiche, alcune delle quali talmente provocatorie da essere immediatamente modificate - e riemerse sotto le pitture solo a seguito di approfondite analisi." -- publisher's description.

Luca Giordano : his life and work
Scavizzi, Giuseppe, author
[Naples] : Arte'm, [2017]
The first systematic monograph on the work of Luca Giordano was published fifty years ago. Based on a catalogue of over a thousand paintings and three hundred drawings known at the time, it marked the beginning of renewed attention paid to the artist's work. A second edition, greatly enlarged, followed in 1992 and the increasing interest in Giordano culminated in the exhibitions organized by Nicola Spinosa, Alfonso Pérez Sánchez and Wolfgand Prohaska which were originally curated in Naples and travelled, in various formats, to Vienna, Los Angeles and Madrid. A third volume appeared in 2003 in order to assess and incorporate all the information obtained from the large number of new studies. Lastly, in 2012 Giuseppe De Vito and I published, as a special piece of research on seventeenth century neapolitan painting, a volume entitled 'Luca Giordano giovane' which focused on the work done by the painter between 1650 and 1664; several chapters of this volume have become, in a revised version, the first chapters of the text presented here: the book, which is targeted at a wider public, includes the results of the latest research and reinterprets the artist's personality and work.

I rilievi 'neoattici' della Campania : produzione e circolazione degli ornamenta marmorei a soggetto mitologico
Di Franco, Luca
Roma : "L'Erma" di Bretschneider, [2017]
Nell'ambito delle produzioni di epoca tardo-ellenistica si distingue un'importante scuola di scultori, definita convenzionalmente con il termine "neoattica". Questo termine, coniato da Heinrich Brunn nel 1853, intendeva sintetizzare l'espressione artistica di artigiani ateniesi, i cui prodotti, a partire dal II sec. a.C. fino al II sec. d.C., rievocavano i modelli elaborati dai più grandi artisti dell'epoca classica di V e IV secolo, nel periodo cioè del massimo splendore per la città di Atene. Importanti botteghe erano attive anche in Italia e sicuramente in Campania almeno a partire dalla prima età imperiale, come testimoniano gli importanti rinvenimenti dei calchi di Baia.0Il segno distintivo fondamentale dei prodotti a rilievo, presi qui in esame, è la libera interpretazione e combinazione degli elementi formali dell'epoca arcaica, ellenistica e classica con l'aggiunta di espressioni contemporanee in uno stile nuovo e vivace. Soprattutto nelle produzioni a rilievo è più chiaramente evidente come l'antica funzione cultuale e votiva si fonde con un gusto squisitamente esornativo, come testimonia la giustapposizione di simili modelli su candelabri, lastre, oscilla, crateri e puteali, fino poi ad arrivare alle produzione della toreutica e della ceramica aretina.

"The Routledge Companion to Remix Studies comprises contemporary texts by key authors and artists who are active in the emerging field of remix studies. As an organic international movement, remix culture originated in the popular music culture of the 1970s, and has since grown into a rich cultural activity encompassing numerous forms of media. The act of recombining pre-existing material brings up pressing questions of authenticity, reception, authorship, copyright, and the techno-politics of media activism. This book approaches remix studies from various angles, including sections on history, aesthetics, ethics, politics, and practice, and presents theoretical chapters alongside case studies of remix projects. The Routledge Companion to Remix Studies is a valuable resource for both researchers and remix practitioners, as well as a teaching tool for instructors using remix practices in the classroom." -- Publisher's description

Many of our greatest Chicano and Chicana artists got their start by painting on the walls of gas stations and schools, residential fences, and community centers. Bringing the murals in this book back to life and telling the story of their births and deaths makes an important contribution to the study of Chicana/o art as a serious and uniquely American art form."--Cheech Marin, art advocate and entertainer. "Showcasing the creative spirit and truths that must be told, [this book] features murals that were censored, whitewashed, neglected, and even destroyed. Histories of works by Barbara Carrasco, Roberto Chavez, Ernesto de la Loza, Yreina Cervántez, Alma López, Willie Herrón, Sergio O'Cadiz, and East Los Streetscapers David Botello, Wayne Healy, and George Yepes reveal the power of urban art."--Back cover.

Ekrem Yalcindag : about color, nature, ornaments, and other things
Yalcindag, Ekrem, 1964- artist
Rüsselsheim : Kunst- und Kulturstiftung Opelvillen Rüsselsheim : [2016]
Living in Istanbul, Vienna, and Frankfurt am Main, Yalcindag (*1964 in Gölbasi) is one of the most important artists working today. Having spent his childhood in Turkey, he then developed his visual language as a student of Hermann Nitsch and Thomas Bayrle in Frankfurt am Main nearly twenty years ago. His meticulous, impasto technique executed with an extremely fine paint brush demands an enormous amount of time. It results in relief-like paintings constructed from hundreds of layers. That Yalcindag?s application of paint recalls the American Color Field painters should be of no surprise if one keeps in mind his intense engagement with Minimal Art. This publication offers the first analysis of the artist?s original practice and visual language, while also providing an important contribution to the study of the reception of non-European ornamental traditions within contemporary art.

Architecture and politics in Republican Rome
Davies, Penelope J. E., 1964- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Machine generated contents note: Introduction; 1. A republic takes shape; 2. An age of individualism, c.338-218 BCE; 3. A state of fear and new horizons, c.217-133 BCE; 4. Turmoil and tension, c.133-90 BCE; 5. Civil war and aftermath, c.89-70 BCE; 6. Pompey, Caesar, and rivals: c.69-55 BCE; 7. Caesar, Pompey, and rivals: c.54-44 BCE; Endnotes; Bibliography; Index.

"Architecture and Politics in Republican Rome is the first book to explore the intersection between Roman Republican building practices and politics (c.509-44 BCE). At the start of the period, architectural commissions were carefully controlled by the political system; by the end, buildings were so widely exploited and so rhetorically powerful that Cassius Dio cited abuse of visual culture among the reasons that propelled Julius Caesar's colleagues to murder him in order to safeguard the Republic. In an engaging and wide-ranging text, Penelope J.E. Davies traces the journey between these two points, as politicians developed strategies to manoeuver within the system's constraints. She also explores the urban development and image of Rome, setting out formal aspects of different types of architecture and technological advances such as the mastery of concrete. Elucidating a rich corpus of buildings that have been poorly understand, Davies demonstrates that Republican architecture was much more than a formal precursor to that of imperial Rome"--

Big & small : a cultural history of extraordinary bodies
Vallone, Lynne, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2017]
Introduction : People big and people small -- Part I. Small bodies. Introduction : The little man ; 1. In the beginning was Tom Thumb ; 2. The dwarf in high and popular culture ; 3. Staging the dwarf ; 4. Lilliputians in blackface -- Part II. Big bodies. Introduction : The monstrous giant ; 5. Gigantic mechanical Boy Scouts ; 6. The obese girl -- Afterword : The human measure.

A groundbreaking work that explores human size as a distinctive cultural marker in Western thought. Author, scholar, and editor Lynne Vallone has an international reputation in the field of child studies. In this analytical tour-de-force, she explores bodily size difference-particularly unusual bodies, big and small-as an overlooked yet crucial marker that informs human identity and culture. Exploring miniaturism, giganticism, obesity, and the lived experiences of actual big and small people, Vallone boldly addresses the uncomfortable implications of using physical measures to judge normalcy, goodness, gender identity, and beauty. This wide-ranging work surveys the lives and contexts of both real and imagined persons with extraordinary bodies from the seventeenth century to the present day through close examinations of art, literature, folklore, and cultural practices, as well as scientific and pseudo-scientific discourses. Generously illustrated and written in a lively and accessible style, Vallone's provocative study encourages readers to look with care at extraordinary bodies and the cultures that created, depicted, loved, and dominated them.

The ancient Mediterranean Sea in modern visual and performing arts : sailing in troubled waters
edited by Rosario Rovira Guardiola
London, UK ; Bloomsbury Academic, An imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2018
The Mediterranean as a geographical space -- Living and dying in troubled waters -- A personal Sea. The artist and the Sea -- Sea politics -- Contemporary uses of the classical Mediterranean.

When thinking about the Mediterranean, Fernand Braudel's haunting words resound like an echo of the sea and its millenary history. From Prehistory until today, the Mediterranean has been setting, witness and protagonist of mythical and supernatural adventures, of encounters with the Other, of legendary and historical battles, of the rise and fall of cultures and empires, of fortunate and tragic destinies of humans. Braudel's appeal for a long duree history of the Mediterranean challenged traditional views that often present it as a sea fragmented and divided through epochs and periods. This volume proposes a journey into the bright but also dark sides of the ancient Mediterranean through the kaleidoscopic gaze of artists who from the Renaissance to the 21st century have been inspired and fascinated by the sea, its myths and history. The view of those who imagined and recreated the past of the sea has largely contributed to the shaping of modern cultures which - close to its shores or not - are inexorably rooted and embedded in Mediterranean traditions. The contributions look at modern visual reinterpretations of ancient myths, fiction and history and pay particular attention to the theme of sea travel and travellers, which since Homer's Odyssey has become the epitome of the discovery of new worlds but also of cultural exchanges and a metaphor of personal developments and metamorphoses.

The absent museum : blueprint for a museum of contemporary art for the capital of Europe

Brussels : WEILS ; [2017]
Essays. Absences felt and unfelt / Charles Esche ; Towards a museum of the common / Manuel Borja-Villel ; The absent museum : a blueprint for a contemporary art museum / Dirk Snauwaert.

'The Absent Museum' is a large thematic exhibition that explores the absence of museums in public debates today. What relation can exist between historical awareness and aesthetic commitment? How can artists maintain the tension between globalisation's paradoxes and history's turbulences, and their individual sensibilities and voices? Works and new productions by around 49 artists - both contemporary and those active in the recent past - map what is at stake for museums and the societies that inspire them.

The Transformation of Athens : Painted Pottery and the Creation of Classical Greece
Osborne, Robin, 1957- author
Princeton : Princeton University Press, [2018]
The art of transformation -- Athenian pottery and Athenian culture -- Changing in the gymnasium -- Changing the guard -- Courting change -- Sacrificing change -- Drinking to and reveling in change -- The changing city of Satyrs -- Morality, politics, and aesthetics -- The road not taken -- The transformation of art.

"Why did soldiers stop fighting, athletes stop competing, and lovers stop having graphic sex in classical Greek art? The scenes depicted on Athenian pottery of the mid-fifth century BC are very different from those of the late sixth century. Did Greek potters have a different world to see - or did they come to see the world differently? In this lavishly illustrated and engagingly written book, Robin Osborne argues that these remarkable changes are the best evidence for the shifting nature of classical Greek culture. Osborne examines the thousands of surviving Athenian red-figure pots painted between 520 and 440 BC and describes the changing depictions of soldiers and athletes, drinking parties and religious occasions, sexual relations, and scenes of daily life. He shows that it was not changes in each activity that determined how the world was shown, but changes in values and aesthetics. By demonstrating that changes in artistic style involve choices about what aspects of the world we decide to represent as well as how to represent them, this book rewrites the history of Greek art. By showing that Greeks came to see the world differently over the span of less than a century, it reassesses the history of classical Greece and of Athenian democracy. And by questioning whether art reflects or produces social and political change, it provokes a fresh examination of the role of images in an ever-evolving world."--Jacket flaps.

Reassessing Rudolph
edited by Timothy M. Rohan
New Haven, Conn. : Yale School of Architecture, [2017]
"American architect Paul Rudolph (1918-1997) was internationally known in the 1950s and early 1960s for his powerful, large-scale concrete buildings. Hugely influential during his lifetime, Rudolph was one of the most significant American architects of his generation. To a remarkable extent, his reputation rose and fell with the fortunes of postwar modernism in America. This insightful book reconsiders Rudolph's architecture and the discipline's assessment of his projects. It includes nearly a dozen essays by well-known scholars in the fields of architectural and urban history, all of which shed new light on Rudolph's theories and practices. Contributions explore the architect's innovative use of materials, including plywood, Plexiglas, and exposed concrete; the places he lived and worked, from the Anglo-American axis to the Bengal delta; his affiliation with CIAM (Congres Internationaux d'Architecture Moderne); and currents within his philosophy of architecture"--Publisher's description.

By the pen and what they write : writing in Islamic art and culture
edited by Sheila Blair and Jonathan Bloom
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2017]
Considered by Muslims as the only true art, calligraphy has played a prominent role in Islamic culture since the time of the prophet Muhammad. Exploring this central role of the written word in Islam and how writing practices have evolved and adapted in different historical contexts, this book provides an overview of the enormous impact that writing in Arabic script has had on the visual arts of the Islamic world. Approaching the topic from a number of different perspectives, the essays in this volume include discussions on the relationship between orality and the written word; the materiality of the written word, ranging from the type of paper on which books were written to monumental inscriptions in stone and brick; and the development of Arabic typography and the printed book. Generously illustrated, By Pen and What They Write is an engaging look at how writing has remained a foundational component of Islamic art throughout fourteen centuries.

Territories of disobedience
Choi, Linna, author
[New York, NY] : Actar, [2017]
Architects today play a marginal role in the production of built environments, often entering a project long after its critical limits have been defined. OUALALOU+CHOI seeks to reestablish the architect’s role as necessary and pertinent, to expand and redefine the architect’s perimeter of action. The architecture presented in this book is a form of disobedience, a challenge to entrenched systems of construction. To question and pervert the established parameters of an architectural project is OUALALOU+CHOI’s modus operandi. This search for singularity is not a search for formal distinction; it’s not a fetishism of the architectural object. It speaks to a desire to define a project’s conditions of existence, to be responsible for more than a project’s formal incarnation. This compendium of essays and projects is divided into four themes: Cultural Resistance, Occupying Earth, Public Prerogatives, and Urban Transgressions . Presenting radically dissimilar projects, it illuminates the core of OUALALOU+CHOI’s work: the exploration of scale and territorial structures. Linna Choi and Tarik Oualalou are partners in OUALALOU+CHOI, an architectural firm based in Paris and Casablanca. Territories of Disobedience traces the first fifteen years of their work.--Publisher's description.

Women walking : freedom, adventure, independence
Sagner, Karin, author
New York : Abbeville Press Publishers, 2017
Introduction: women walking -- From aristocratic promenades to bourgeois walks -- Strolling and idling: on the go in the city -- Liberating steps into nature -- High up: above it all.

"At the close of the eighteenth century, women began to discover a new sense of freedom, adventure, and self-determination, simply by walking in public unaccompanied. Previously, solitary walks by women were considered unseemly. An unaccompanied hike in the country was beyond imagination; to promenade by oneself on city boulevards was unthinkable. This book features evocative paintings of women doing just that, by a range of artists, from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century, among them British portraitist Thomas Gainsborough, the scandalous Gustave Courbet, Impressionist Gustave Caillebotte, American masters Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent, and Nabi artist Felix Vallotton. With paintings as her guide, Karin Sagner takes us on a visual journey through this vital yet oft-overlooked aspect of women's emancipation, from the promenades of the nobility to everyday walks in the city, on gentle strolls in the country or hikes up mountain summits. Quotes by luminaries like the Marquise de Sevigne, Jane Austen, and Simone de Beauvoir gracefully support her points. A thoughtful gift for graduates, teachers, or Mother's Day, this subtle but profound book is not only an illuminating history but a beautiful art historical survey and an inspirational guide."--Publisher's description.

Jasper Johns : catalogue raisonné of monotypes

New York, NY : Matthew Marks Gallery, [2017]
The first comprehensive overview of Jasper Johns's work in an innovative medium that the artist has singlehandedly redefined over the course of four decades Jasper Johns (b. 1930) is arguably the most important living American artist, and his work is central to any history of postwar art. With extensive new scholarship based on original research and interviews with the artist, Jasper Johns: Catalogue Raisonné of the Monotypes provides the definitive account of his groundbreaking work in an intrinsically subversive medium situated between painting, drawing, and printmaking. Susan Dackerman and Jennifer L. Roberts examine Johns's innovative use of the printing press to create alterity, overturning monotype's century-old reputation for expressive subjectivity.

In 1947, artist Jose Clemente Orozco inaugurated the exhibition "Los Teules" at El Colegio Nacional in Mexico City. This was the first time that Orozco presented a set of artistic pieces that through the plastic discourse, recounted one of the most important historical events in Mexico: the Spanish Conquest. Inspired in the chronicle "Historia verdadera de la conquista de la Nueva España" by conquerer Bernal Díaz del Castillo, Orozco stunned with his raw representations of the encounter between Indians and Spanish. Seven decades after, the present catalogue comprises a compilation of 43 of the 66 works that integrated the original exhibition, recovered by the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil and recreates the original museographic script that Orozoco presente at El Colegio Nacional.

Paint it black -- Gods & monsters -- The kingdom of darkness -- Dark arts/higher power.

From fine art to street style, the aesthetics and motifs of the gothic are entwined with the heart of today's alternative visual culture. Vampires and demons have become screen icons of the modern underworld. Skulls, crosses, and religious iconography represent symbols of rebellion for a new gothic generation, a shorthand for an allegiance with a modern-day underworld where monsters and misfits rule the world. The Book of Black provides an exploratory visual narrative through which to reveal and celebrate the artists, aesthetics, and styles of today's gothic visual arts, presenting seminal gothic artworks alongside emerging artists of today.

Raphael : the drawings
Whistler, Catherine, author
Oxford : Ashmolean Museum, 2017
Introduction: Raphael and drawing's Eloquence / Catherine Whistler and Ben Thomas -- Raphael: a chronology / Angelamaria Aceto -- Raphael's materials and techniques / Angelamaria Aceto -- Raphael's hands / Catherine Whistler -- Raphael and the idea of drawing / Ben Thomas -- Raphael's drawings and the design process / Achim Gnann -- Catalogue -- Appendix: Two sonnets, Raphael as a poet-lover / Angelamaria Aceto.

The selection of drawings demonstrates how Raphael created a specific mode of visual invention and persuasive communication through drawing. He used drawing both as conceptual art (including brainstorming sheets) and as a practice based on attentive observation (such as drawing from the posed model). Yet Raphael's drawings also reveal how the process of drawing in itself, with its gestural rhythms and spontaneity, can be a form of thought, generating new ideas. The Oxford exhibition will present drawings that span Raphael's entire career, encompassing many of his major projects and exploring his visual language from inventive ideas to full compositions. The extraordinary range of drawings by Raphael in the Ashmolean and the Albertina, enhanced by appropriate loans, will enable this exhibition to cast new light on this familiar artist, transforming our understanding of Raphael's art.

The artist, the censor, and the nude : a tale of morality and appropriation
Harcourt, Glenn, author
Los Angeles : DoppelHouse Press, [2017]
This hybrid book examines the art and politics of 'The Nude' in various cultural contexts, featuring books of canonical western art pirated and either digitally- or hand-censored in Iran by anonymous government workers. Author Glenn Harcourt uses several case studies brought to the fore by American painter Pamela Joseph in her recent "Censored" series. Harcourt's rigorous, culturally-measured and art historical approach complements Joseph's appropriation of these censored images as feminist critique. Harcourt argues that her work serves as a window toward larger questions in art. These include an examination of the evolution of abstraction; the role of women in western society, as seen through the history of painting the body; the effects of western art on cultures outside the west (sometimes referred to in Iran as 'west-toxication'); and how artists in non-western countries, specifically those in Iran living under rules of censorship that specifically prohibit representation of the body, engage with the history of western art found in the censored books.

Conflict, identity, and protest in American art
edited by Miguel de Baca and Makeda Best
Newcastle upon Tyne : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2015
Conflict, Identity, and Protest in American Art explores the powerful relationship between artistic production and cultures of conflict in the United States. Such a theme continues to provoke practitioners and scholars across a range of media and disciplines, especially as definitions of war and protest evolve and change in the twenty-first century. This anthology presents vital discussions of visual works in relationship to national identity, the politics and contexts of artistic production and reception, and the expressive and political function of art within historical periods defined by wars, rebellions, and revolutions. It sheds new light on the shifting nature of identity, and specifically how conflict armed conflict as well as rhetorical conflict inspires new identities to emerge.

The Bequest is named after Waddesdon Manor, the mansion he built in Buckinghamshire, England, where the collection was housed during his lifetime. The collection was accumulated by Baron Ferdinand and by his father, Baron Anselm, and was intended to rival those put together by rulers and princes from the Renaissance onwards. It is mainly made up of small-scale, rare and precious pieces of the highest quality which were intended to inspire a sense of curiosity and wonder.

Helena Rubinstein : beauty is power
Klein, Mason, author
New York : The Jewish Museum, under the auspices of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, [2014]
This is the first exhibition to explore the ideas, innovations, and influence of the legendary cosmetics entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein. Madame (as she was universally known) helped break down the status quo of taste by blurring boundaries between commerce, art, fashion, beauty, and design. Through 200 objects Beauty Is Power reveals how Rubinstein's unique style and pioneering approaches to business challenged conservative taste and heralded a modern notion of beauty, democratized and accessible to all. The exhibition reunites selections from Rubinstein's famed art collection, dispersed at auction in 1966, featuring works by Pablo Picasso, Elie Nadelman, Frida Kahlo, Max Ernst, Leonor Fini, Joan Miró, and Henri Matisse, among others, as well as more than thirty works from her peerless collection of African and Oceanic art. Other highlights include Rubinstein's beloved miniature period rooms, jewelry, and clothing designed by Cristóbal Balenciaga, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Paul Poiret. Rubinstein's savvy for self-promotion is seen in portraits of her made by the leading artists of her day, from Marie Laurencin to Andy Warhol. Also on display are vintage advertisements, cosmetics products, and promotional films related to her beauty business.

New York : Abrams, 2017
Preface by Dave Eggers -- Introduction by Noah Lang -- Interview with David Tilley -- Ungrateful mammals -- "What if..." by Natasha Boas.

Before he embarked on his writing career, Dave Eggers was classically trained as a draftsman and painter. He then spent many years as a professional illustrator and graphic designer before turning to writing full-time. More recently, in order to raise money for ScholarMatch, his college-access nonprofit, he returned to visual art, and the results have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the country. Usually involving the pairing of an animal with humorous or Biblical text, the results are wry, oddly anthropomorphic tableaus that create a very entertaining and eccentric body of work from one of today's leading culture makers.

Where do we find the world's very first art? When, and why, did people begin experimenting with different materials, forms and colors? Were our once-cousins, the Neanderthals, also capable of creating art? Prehistorians have been asking these questions of our ancestors for decades, but only very recently, with the development of cutting-edge scientific and archaeological techniques, have we been able to piece together the first chapter in the story of art.

A Queer Little History of Art
Pilcher, Alex, author
[London] : Tate Publishing, [2017]
This small but lavishly illustrated book showcases a selection of works which illustrate the breadth and depth of queer art from around the world. Exploring identity, eroticism, relationships, hidden desires, love and gender through drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and film, it tells the story of queer art from 1900 to the present, revealing how experiences have also been shaped by class and ethnicity, and how art itself has played a key role in changing attitudes and crystalising identities. From the deeply personal to the political or emotive, each work is beautifully reproduced with a short text explaining its wider social and cultural context, and what 'queer' means in different historic and contemporary contexts. Including works from a variety of artists - among them Egon Schiele, Duncan Grant, Romaine Brooks, Edward Burra, Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, David Hockney, Diane Arbus, Francis Bacon, Bhupen Khakhar, Zanele Muholi, Allyson Mitchell and Tomoko Kashiki - all of whom found new freedom in radical ideas and new art forms, A Queer Little History of Art is a true celebration of over 100 years of queer art, as well as the LGBT community that has embraced it.

Expanded painting : ontological aesthetics and the essence of colour
Titmarsh, Mark, 1955- author
London : Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
The presence of paint -- Expanded painting -- Post aesthetics -- An ontology of color -- The painting of being.

The relevance of painting has been questioned many times over the last century, by the arrival of photography, installation art and digital technologies. But rather than accept the death of painting, Mark Titmarsh traces a paradoxical interface between this art form and its opposing forces to define a new practice known as èxpanded painting' giving the term historical context, theoretical structure and an important place in contemporary practice. As the formal boundaries tumble, the being of painting expands to become a kind of total art incorporating all other media including sculpture, video and performance. Painting is considered from three different perspectives: ethnology, art theory and ontology. From an ethnological point of view, painting is one of any number of activities that takes place within a culture. In art theory terms, painting is understood to produce objects of interest for humanities disciplines. Yet painting as a medium often challenges both its object and image status, èxpanding' and creating hybrid works between painting, objects, screen media and text. Ontologically, painting is understood as an object of aesthetic discourse that in turn reflects historical states of being. Thus, Expanded Painting delivers a new kind of saying, a post-aesthetic discourse that is attuned to an uncanny tension between the presence and absence of painting.

La policromia sui sarcofagi romani : catalogo e risultati scientifici
Siotto, Eliana
Roma : L'Erma di Bretschneider, [2017]
La monografia si occupa della policromia sui sarcofagi romani in marmo prodotti a Roma dall'inizio del II secolo alla fine del IV secolo d.C. Essa affronta in modo sistematico le problematiche del colore e della doratura per temi, in modo discorsivo, ma sempre da un punto di vista tecnico e pragmatico, riportando risultati e dati derivanti da osservazioni sul campo, da analisi scientifiche unite a ricerche archivio-bibliografiche mediante l' uso di tecnologie emergenti in supporto all' iter corrente. Per la prima volta, lo studio della policromia è affrontato in modo nuovo e la ricerca si è concentrata esclusivamente su una classe specifica di manufatti archeologici. Questo approccio, naturalmente, non toglie al testo del manoscritto un' ampia e complementare disamina dei materiali studiati sotto il profilo storico-archeologico. In tal modo, la ricerca si configura per la sua transdisciplinarità costituendo, per la materia in oggetto, un prodotto pionieristico, quindi innovativo per contenuti e metodo.

Delirious : art at the limits of reason, 1950-1980
Baum, Kelly, author
New York : Metropolitan Museum of Art, [2017]
Think crazy: the art and history of delirium / Kelly Baum -- Bite your tongue: Antonin Artaud and the neo-avant-garde / Lucy Bradnock -- Blown circuits: technology and irrationality in postwar art / Tine Rivers Ryan -- Plates. Excess -- Vertigo -- Twisted -- Nonsense.

Addressing the maniacal, eccentric, and disorienting in artworks made between 1950 and 1980, Delirious situates a fascination with the absurd and irrational within the context of the violence and brutality witnessed during World War II as well as the rapid expansion of industrial capitalism in the 1950s. Skepticism of science and technology--along with fear of its capability to promote mass destruction--developed into a distrust of rationalism, which in the arts had the paradoxical result of extracting irrational effects from rational means.

Drawings for paintings in the age of Rembrandt
Ger Luijten, Peter Schatborn, Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr. ; with Rhea Sylvia Blok, Wouter Kloek, Henriette Rahusen, William W. Robinson, Cécile Tainturier, Ilona van Tuinen, Gerdien Wuestman
Washington : National Gallery of Art, [2016]
Drawing into Painting: An Overview / William W. Robinson and Peter Schatborn -- Drawings and Underdrawings: The Creative Process in Dutch Painting / Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr. -- Reasons for Drawing in Seventeenth-Century Holland / Ger Luijten -- Catalog.

"The realistic character of seventeenth-century Dutch art seems to suggest that artists painted from life, but they often executed their paintings on the basis of preliminary drawings. Accompanying the international loan exhibition Drawings for Paintings in the Age of Rembrandt, this richly illustrated volume demonstrates the important role of drawings in the creative process. Among the drawings discussed are quick compositional sketches, figure studies, and careful construction drawings. Underdrawings on panel and canvas supports are also studied. Such preparatory studies are juxtaposed with their related paintings in the catalog to provide new insights into this important aspect of Dutch art"--

The book of Emma Reyes
Reyes, Emma, 1919-2003, author
New York, New York : Penguin Books, [2017]
"A literary discovery: an extraordinary account, in the tradition of The House on Mango Street and Angela's Ashes, of a Colombian woman's harrowing childhood. This astonishing memoir of a childhood lived in extreme poverty in Latin America was hailed as an instant classic when first published in Colombia in 2012, nine years after the death of its author, who was encouraged in her writing by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Comprised of letters written over the course of thirty years, and translated and introduced by acclaimed Peruvian-American writer Daniel Alarcon, it describes in vivid, painterly detail the remarkable courage and limitless imagination of a young girl growing up with nothing. Emma was an illegitimate child, raised in a windowless room in Bogota with no water or toilet and only ingenuity to keep her and her sister alive. Abandoned by their mother, she and her sister moved to a Catholic convent housing 150 orphan girls, where they washed pots, ironed and mended laundry, scrubbed floors, cleaned bathrooms, sewed garments and decorative cloths for the nuns--and lived in fear of the Devil. Illiterate and knowing nothing of the outside world, Emma escaped at age nineteen, eventually coming to have a career as an artist and to befriend the likes of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera as well as European artists and intellectuals. Far from self-pitying, the portrait that emerges from this clear-eyed account inspires awe at the stunning early life of a gifted writer whose talent remained hidden for far too long"--Provided by publisher.
