99 cents or less
editor: Jens Hoffman
New York : Karma ; 
A major group exhibition of ninety nine artists based in the United States, '99 Cents or Less' addresses Detroit's ongoing economic crisis and its 2013 bankruptcy-the largest municipal bankruptcy filing in the history of the United States. Four years after a federal judge approved Detroit's bankruptcy-exit plan the city's financial present and future are still in flux. This exhibition is a reflection on the realities of a city that was once one of the country's wealthiest and most diverse. Speaking to Detroit's place as a global industrial powerhouse by using materials from 99 cent stores, '99 Cents or Less' hopes to make the connection between past, present, and future centers of production, and point to ways that artists can address how mass production has changed and will continue to change and evolve. As the consumer's relationship with their everyday items has changed, so has the application and approach that artists take when incorporating these items in their work. Exhibition: Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit, USA (19.05. - 06.08.2017).

Art and artists in China since 1949
Yi, Ying, 1953- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Under a red sky -- A glimmer of hope in a new era -- Moving toward modern art -- On the threshold of a new century.
"In this lavishly illustrated study, the scholar and critic Yi Ying brings a distinctly Chinese perspective to the development of art and artists in China since 1949. These have been years of dramatic change for China, and the art of this period is therefore of historical, political and cultural interest, being first used to promote the revolutionary cause, later to question and criticise and, more recently, charting the changes in cultural and economic policy that have taken place since 1978. In the twenty-first century, Chinese art is diverse, distinctive, and highly prized in the global art market. Presented here in English translation for the first time, Yi's narrative opens up fresh questions about both the nature of contemporary art and the China of today"--

Ghost-haunted land : contemporary art and post-troubles Northern Ireland
Long, Declan, author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 
Since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 - the formal end-point of the thirty-year modern 'Troubles' - contemporary visual artists have offered diverse responses to post-conflict circumstances in Northern Ireland. In Ghost-Haunted Land - the first book-length examination of post-Troubles contemporary art - Declan Long highlights artists who have reflected on the ongoing anxieties of aftermath. This wide-ranging study addresses developments in video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and more, offering detailed analyses of key works by artists based in Ireland and beyond - including 2014 Turner Prize winner Duncan Campbell and internationally acclaimed filmmaker and photographer Willie Doherty. 'Post-Troubles' contemporary art is discussed in the context of both local transformations and global operations - and many of the main points of reference in the book come from broader debates about the place and purpose of contemporary art in today's world.

Hokusai : beyond the great wave
Katsushika, Hokusai, 1760-1849, artist
New York, New York : Thames & Hudson in collaboration with the British Museum, 2017
Hokusai : the final years / Roger S. Keyes -- Late Hokusai, backwards / Timothy Clark -- Hokusai's thought / Angus Lockyer -- The power of Hokusai's line / Matsuba Ryōko -- Hokusai in old age : his ideas, his way / Asano Shūgō -- Hokusai and late Tokugawa society / Alfred Haft -- Catalogue. Hokusai from twenty to sixty -- Mt Fuji and the Great wave -- Worlds seen -- Worlds imagined -- Hokusai's world -- Immortality.
"An acknowledged master during his lifetime, Hokusai created sublime works during the last thirty years of his life, right up to his death at the age of ninety. His long artistic career is often presented as a chronological sequence. This publication takes a fresh approach based on innovative scholarship: thematic groupings of late works are related to the major spiritual and artistic quests of Hokusai's life. Hokusai's personal beliefs are contemplated here through analyses of major brush paintings, drawings, woodblock prints and illustrated books. Due attention is also paid to the contribution of Hokusai's daughter Eijo (Ōi), an accomplished artist in her own right. Hokusai continually explored the mutability and minutiae of natural phenomena in his art. His late subjects and styles were based on a mastery of eclectic Japanese, Chinese and European techniques and an encyclopaedic knowledge of nature, myth, and history."--

The Expressionist Fritz Ascher : to live is to blaze with passion = Der Expressionist Fritz Ascher : Leben ist Glühn
editor, Rachel Stern, Ori Z. Soltes ; authors, Jörn Barfod and five others
Köln : Wienand, 
Fritz Ascher (1893-1970) gilt als Vertreter der Berliner Expressionisten. Während der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus war er als entarteter Künstler und politisch Verdächtiger zeitweise in Haft und überlebte versteckt. Die umfangreiche Retrospektive mit rund 70 Werken lädt zur Wiederentdeckung des ehemals verfemten und nahezu vergessenen Berliner Malers ein und zeigt Zeichnungen, Gouachen und Gemälde aller Schaffensphasen - von den frühen, spielerisch-humoristischen Gesellschaftsstudien über die monumentalen Figurenkompositionen der Weimarer Zeit bis hin zu den kraftvollen Landschaftsbildern der Jahre nach 1945. Der Band umfasst neben wissenschaftlichen Aufsätzen und zahlreichen Abbildungen auch Beispiele von Aschers eindrucksvoller Poesie. Exhibition: Felix Nussbaum Haus, Osnabrück, Germany (25.09.2016-15.01.2017).

Rembrandt's religious prints : the Feddersen collection at the Snite Museum of Art
Rosenberg, Charles M., author
Bloomington, Indiana : Indiana University Press, with the Snite Museum of Art, University of Notre Dame, 
Chronology of Rembrandt's life and religious prints -- List of abbreviations -- Jack and Alfrieda Fedderson: Building a collection / Julia Quinn and Charles M. rosendberg -- Catalog -- Appendix: additional Rembrandt prints at the Snite Museum of Art.
"Rembrandt's stunning religious prints stand as evidence of the Dutch master's extraordinary skill as a technician and as a testament to his genius as a teller of tales. Here, several virtually unknown etchings, collected by the Feddersen family and now preserved for the ages at the University of Notre Dame, are made widely available in a lavishly illustrated volume. Building on the contributions of earlier Rembrandt scholars, noted art historian Charles M. Rosenberg illuminates each of the 70 religious prints through detailed background information on the artist s career as well as the historical, religious, and artistic impulses informing their creation. Readers will enjoy an impression of the earliest work, The Circumcision (1625-26); the famous Hundred Guilder Print; the enigmatic eighth state of Christ Presented to the People; one of a handful of examples of the very rare final posthumous state of The Three Crosses; and an impression and counterproof of The Triumph of Mordecai. From the joyous epiphany of the coming of the Messiah to the anguish of the betrayal of a father (Jacob) by his children, from choirs of angels waiting to receive the Virgin into heaven to the dog who defecates in the road by an ancient inn (The Good Samaritan), Rembrandt s etchings offer a window into the nature of faith, aspiration, and human experience, ranging from the ecstatically divine to the worldly and mundane. Ultimately, these prints modest, intimate, fragile objects are great works of art which, like all masterpieces, reward us with fresh insights and discoveries at each new encounter." -- Publisher's description

Nicola Hicks : keep dark
Hicks, Nicola, 1960- artist
London : Elephant in association with Flowers Gallery, 2017
"Nicola Hicks's sculpture and drawing practice has focused upon heroic, humanized animals and mythic, beast-like humans. From the moment she burst upon the wider public stage, there has been no doubting her remarkable talent. Picked out while still at the Royal College of Art by the late Elisabeth Frink as a fellow spirit, she quickly established an immediate presence among the artists of her generation as a serious and substantial figure. She was remarkable on every count, for she flew in the face of the critical expectations of those days not just in the nature of the actual imagery she celebrated--figurative, romantic and expressive--but also in the direct and gleeful joy she took in the physical making of these things. This book is a visual celebration of her work and features essays written by Will Self, Max Porter, Candia McWilliam and David Mamet."--Amazon.com.

Mies van der Rohe : space, material, detail
Stach, Edgar, 1963- author
Basel : Birkhäuser, 
"Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is widely rearded as one of the most influential architects of the modern movement. But how are Mies' ideas on architecture and the logic of construction expressed in his built -- and also unbuilt -- works? This book examines this question through a study of 14 projects with particular focus on the aspects of space, material and detailing. Three-dimensional drawings, prepared specifically for this book, explain his construction concepts"--Page 4 of cover.

Body narratives : motion and emotion in the French Enlightenment
edited by Susanna Caviglia
Turnhout, Belgium : Brepols, 
This book explores, in broad terms, the representations and understandings of the body's physical and psychological movement's meanings during the French Enlightenment in its many guises --artistic, esthetic, social, and erotic. It is centered on the fundamental tension between stasis and movement, which is both constitutive of art historical reflection and embedded in the body's existence.

Meyer, Christopher Michael, author
New York : Princeton Architectural Press, 
"In the latest addition to the esteemed Pamphlet Architecture series, architects Christopher Meyer, Daniel Hemmendinger, and Shawna Meyer interrogate the concept of floating cities, a field of inquiry that is gaining increasing relevance and urgency with the impending reality of climate change. The authors explore notions of buoyancy and the amphibious through a typology based on human response and adaptation, rather than architectural and technological intervention. Through case studies of diverse communities and their relationship to changing sea levels, Buoyant Clarity offers both contemporary mediations and future proposals that contribute to architecture's newfound ecological responsibilities"--

New China eye witness : Roger Duff, Rewi Alley and the Art of Museum Diplomacy = Xin zhongguo de mu ji zhe: luojie · dafu, luyi · aili yu bo wu guan wai jiao
edited by James Beattie and Richard Bullen ; Chinese translation by Xiongbo Shi
Christchurch, New Zealand : Canterbury University Press, 2017
Museum diplomacy and cultural exchange -- Tour party and hosts -- Map showing itinerary of Roger Duff's trip to China -- Diary of a visit to China / Roger Duff -- Selected objects from the Rewi Alley Collection.
"New China Eyewitness is the fascinating account of the 1956 visit to the People's Republic of China by a group of prominent New Zealanders - including Roger Duff, James Bertram, Evelyn Page, Angus Ross and Ormond Wilson - and of how Canterbury Museum came to acquire the largest collection of Chinese art in New Zealand. At the centre of the book is the eloquent diary kept by Canterbury Museum director Dr Roger Duff, detailing his efforts to bring to Christchurch the collection of antiquities gifted to the museum by long-time China resident, New Zealander Rewi Alley. Through Alley's contacts with premier Zhou Enlai and Duff's diplomatic skills they obtained the sanction of the Chinese government to circumvent its own export ban on antiquities and permit the gifting of seven crates of treasures to Christchurch. These objects were the basis for the museum's Hall of Oriental Arts and their arrival led to a collections policy dedicated to Chinese art. New China Eyewitness offers a rare glimpse of foreigners' views of China during a period of rapid social, political and cultural change, and at a time of unusual political and cultural tolerance"--Back cover.

Full circle : works on paper by Richard Pousette-Dart
Shoemaker, Innis H., author
Philadelphia, PA : Philadelphia Museum of Art in association with Yale University Press, 
Richard Pousette-Dart (1916-1992) is best known as an American painter of mid-20th-century Abstract Expressionism, although his work was distinct for its spiritual content and his elaborate layering of materials. His works on paper are remarkable for their varied use of materials and techniques, and reflect the artist's shift from figurative representation to semi-abstract forms emerging out of free calligraphic drawing, to a form of pointillism, and a return to spontaneous drawing. Pousette-Dart's later works include evocative graphite drawings touched with white paint, bold black and white paintings, hand-colored etchings, and colorful acrylics on handmade paper. The authors employ close stylistic and technical analysis to trace for the first time the narrative of Pousette-Dart's career as a draftsman. Generously illustrated with nearly 200 color images, this revelatory publication presents an unprecedented examination of the artist's works on paper, focused on his dynamic experimentation with media and styles over nearly seven decades.

Paris : Hazan : 
""Prie le ciel pour que je sois un grand homme." À peine âgé de dix-sept ans, Eugène Delacroix affiche son ambition : incarner un destin hors du commun, celui du peintre le plus glorieux de son siècle. À l'occasion de la rétrospective exceptionnelle que lui consacre le musée du Louvre, le présent ouvrage propose une lecture nouvelle de la longue carrière de Delacroix, depuis les grands coups d'éclat, sombres et sensuels, qui firent la célébrité du jeune artiste dans les années 1820, jusqu'aux dernières compositions, plus mélancoliques, peintes à l'aube des années 1860. Privilégiant la forme libre et critique de l'essai, le présent catalogue révèle la complexité d'un artiste en mouvement, épris de singularité et conscient de sa place dans l'histoire, capable de se renouveler sans rien perdre des expériences passées. De ce processus cumulatif naît une oeuvre aussi exceptionnelle par sa cohérence que par sa profusion, où la création se réfléchit dans l'écriture. S'y rencontre enfin une personnalité noble et lucide, réincarnation moderne des grands humanistes européens, la palette à la main. Delacroix n'a en effet jamais perdu confiance dans la puissance de la matière colorée, l'appétit toujours aiguisé, et l'imagination allumée, par la "bonne grasse peinture, et épaisse". Son art, qu'il définit in extremis comme une "fête pour l'oeil", illumine son siècle et pourrait encore féconder le nôtre."--Page 4 of cover.

Esakov, Denis, 1984- photographer
Berlin : DOM publishers, 
This collector's album presents Moscow's architectural icons. With photographic precision, Denis Esakov captures the fifth façade of the largest European metropolis: roofs, domes, and cube-like buildings stacked on top of each other. By gazing through the drone's eye, the artist fosters a novel visual aesthetic that opens up new vistas, even for Moscow connoisseurs.

Tour de Suisse : Schweizer Kleinmeister aus der Sammlung Bernhard Neher
herausgegeben von Matthias Fischer, Monique Meyer ; Autoren, Susanne Bieri and six others
Schaffhausen : Museum zu Allerheiligen ; 
Der Band beleuchtet die Kunstproduktion der Schweizer Kleinmeister in der Zeit von 1770 bis 1850. Gezeigt werden helvetische Landschaften und pittoreske Genreszenen in exquisiten Zeichnungen und Druckgrafiken. Die Begeisterung für nationale Mythen sowie die Entstehung des modernen Tourismus werden in Bildern vorgeführt. Schweizer Landschafts- und Trachtenbilder entstanden mit der klassischen Bildungsreise im 18. und 19. Jahrhundert. Heimische und ausländische Künstler schufen Zeichnungen und grafische Blätter, um sie an Reisende zu verkaufen. So entstanden bedeutende Zeitdokumente, die die Schweiz zum Mythos stilisierten. Die Sammlung Bernhard Neher besitzt herausragende Bedeutung hinsichtlich Quantität und Qualität. Entstehung und Funktion der Kleinmeisterkunst werden exemplarisch erläutert. Hochwertige Abbildungen von Druckgrafiken und zahlreichen, erstmals publizierten Handzeichnungen aus allen Regionen der Schweiz machen die Publikation zu einem Standardwerk.

Nature by design : the practice of biophilic design
Kellert, Stephen R., author
New Haven, CT : Yale University Press, 
One Biophilia: The Nature of Human Nature -- Two: principles of biophilic design -- Three: The practice of biophilic design -- Four: Biophilic design applications -- Epilogue: The ecological and ethical imperative.
"Biophilia is the theory that people possess an inherent affinity for nature, which developed during the long course of human evolution. In recent years, studies have revealed that this inclination continues to be a vital component to human health and well-being. Given the pace and scale of construction today and the adversarial, dominative relationship with nature expressed by much building development, the integration of nature with our built environments is one of the greatest challenges of our time. In this sweeping examination, Stephen Kellert describes the basic principles, practices, and options for successfully implementing biophilic design. He shows us what is-and isn't-good biophilic design using examples of workplaces, healthcare facilities, schools, commercial centers, religious structures, and hospitality settings. This book will to appeal to architects, designers, engineers, scholars of human evolutionary biology, and-with more than one hundred striking images of designs-anyone interested in nature-inspired spaces."--

Chris Martin : paintings
Martin, Chris, 1954- artist
Milano : Skira, 2017
To come to be what you are not you must go by a way in which you are not: Chris Martin's paintings / Nancy Princenthal -- Plates -- Chris Martin, as I recall / Glenn O'Brien -- Long distance operator / Dan Nadel -- Plates -- Bringing it all in / Trinie Dalton -- List of works.
Drawing on inspirations ranging from Buddhism and American modernist painting to psychedelia and Amy Winehouse, Brooklyn-based painter Chris Martin (born 1954) "lets the paintings make themselves," with often generously scaled canvases characterized by flat yet textured planes of bright, saturated color, frequently incorporating found materials and highly personal paper ephemera. The emphatic geometries of his paintings, which indicate his attachment to Piet Mondrian, are another signature touch, conveying a genially brash New York energy (Martin's practice came of age in 1980s New York, which saw the explosion of the East Village art scene, led by Keith Haring). This first full overview on Martin collects essays by Glenn O'Brien, Nancy Princenthal, Trinie Dalton and Dan Nadel.

La mostra presenta il recente acquisto di un importante dipinto di Anton Raphael Mengs (Aussig, 1728 - Roma, 1779) da parte delle Gallerie degli Uffizi. La tela raffigura due dei figli di Pietro Leopoldo di Lorena, Federico e Maria Anna, vestiti in abito contemporaneo e colti in un interno di Palazzo Pitti.0Eseguito durante il soggiorno fiorentino dell'artista, all'inizio degli anni Settanta del Settecento, il quadro non venne mai concluso; trattenuto dal pittore passò in eredità alla figlia, finché di recente è stato riscoperto presso un suo discendente. L'opera viene messa a confronto con la versione del ritratto dei giovanissimi figli di Pietro Leopoldo realizzata da Mengs nella medesima occasione per il nonno materno Carlo III, re di Spagna, raffigurante i principini in abito di corte spagnolo (Madrid, Prado), oltre che con un ritratto del loro fratello Francesco, futuro imperatore d'Austria, di Johann Zoffany (Francoforte sul Meno 1733 - Strand on the Green, 1810).0Ciò per mettere in evidenza il modello ritrattistico espresso da Mengs nel nuovo dipinto delle Gallerie degli Uffizi, "illuminato" e vicino alla impostazione di Zoffany che pochissimi anni dopo ritrasse la famiglia lorenese regnante per la nonna paterna, l'imperatrice consorte Maria Teresa d'Austria, sempre a Palazzo Pitti, ma in abiti moderni e circondati da oggetti di studio e da libri. Un nuovo e moderno modello ritrattistico quindi che, pur sempre all'interno dell'Antico Regime, contrappone gl'infanti madrileni ai giovani, illuminati principi viennesi.00Exhibition: Palazzo Pitti, Florence, Italy (8.09.2017-07.01.2018).

Kinesthesia: Latin American Kinetic Art, 1954-1969 examines the influential and visually stunning work of South American kinetic artists. While Southern California was becoming the North American epicenter for Light and Space art in the 1960s, separate yet closely related technical experiments had been unfolding in a handful of major cities of South America, as well as in Paris, the European center for kinetic art. 'Kinesthesia' highlights the broad differences that emerged among the two principal South American centers of activity: Argentina, where kinetic art grew out of local debates about painting; and Venezuela, where pioneering notions of modern architecture stimulated a synthesis of art and design. Featured in this volume are kinetic sculptures and installations by Jesus Rafael Soto, Julio Le Parc, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Martha Boto, and others, as well as essays that explore the history of this movement, examine the artists' reception by European and American audiences in the context of the Cold War, and link their achievements to 21st-century artists and their work.

La raccolta Ingegnoli : storia di una passione d'arte a Milano
a cura di Enzo Savoia, Stefano Bosi, Valerio Mazzetti Rossi ; introduzione di Fernando Mazzocca
Milano : Bottegantica, 
L'esposizione ripercorre le tappe che hanno portato alla nascita e allo sviluppo della celebre collezione milanese, attraverso una selezione di dipinti di autori dell'Ottocento italiano, tra cui Giovanni Boldini, Giovanni Fattori, Domenico e Gerolamo Induno, Angelo Morbelli. La storia di una collezione privata si lega con la storia della persona che la crea. Si colora con gli avvenimenti della sua vita privata e pubblica, e permette di leggerci in controluce la personalità del collezionista. È questo il caso di Paolo Ingegnoli (1861-1935), facoltoso imprenditore milanese, fondatore nel 1884 insieme ai fratelli Francesco e Vittorio della società Fratelli Ingegnoli. Innamorato del bello, Ingegnoli ha riunito, tra fine Otto e inizio Novecento, una straordinaria raccolta di dipinti, ordinata seguendo le ragioni della passione e dell'amore per l'arte. La Galleria Bottegantica di Milano (via Manzoni 45) ospita una mostra che ripercorrerà le tappe che hanno portato alla nascita e allo sviluppo di questa celebre collezione milanese. Exhibition: Bottegantica, Milan, Italy (13.10. - 03.12.2017).

Milano : Silvana, 2017
Alla soglia degli ottanta anni dalla scomparsa, l'indagine intorno alla stagione artistica di Giacomo Grosso (1860-1938), docente di pittura all'Accademia Albertina e senatore del Regno, rappresenta un'occasione per rivisitare il clima e gli aspetti dell'arte figurativa tra fine Ottocento e i primi trent'anni del Novecento. I grandi e sontuosi ritratti, la moda dell'epoca, lo studio ricco di arredi e dipinti, ripreso da suggestivi scatti fotografici, e il fascino degli interni con le modelle in posa, la pregevole cornice d'alcova e i meditati autoritratti costituiscono una determinante testimonianza dell'itinerario tra vita, pittura e società del Maestro.

Diamonds : an early history of the king of gems
Ogden, Jack, author
New Haven ; Yale University Press, 
A lavishly illustrated, in-depth early history covering two thousand years of diamond jewelry and commerce, from the Indian mines to European merchants, courts, and workshops This richly illustrated history of diamonds illuminates myriad facets of the "king of gems," including a cast of larger-than-life characters such as Alexander the Great, the Mughal Emperor Jahangir, and East India Company adventurers. It's an in-depth study tracing the story of diamonds from their early mining and trade more than two thousand years ago to the 1700s, when Brazil displaced India as the world's primary diamond supplier. Jack Ogden, a historian and gemologist specializing in ancient gems and jewelry, describes the early history of diamond jewelry, the development of diamond cutting, and how diamonds were assessed and valued. The book includes more than one hundred captivating illustrations, from historic diamond-set jewelry, some previously unpublished, to photomicrographs of individual gems, medieval manuscript illustrations, and Indian miniatures, as well as diagrams depicting historical methods of cutting and polishing diamonds.

Sonny Assu : a selective history
Assu, Sonny, contributing author
Victoria [B.C.] : Heritage, c2018
"Stunning retrospective highlighting the playfulness, power, and subversive spirit of Northwest Coast Indigenous artist Sonny Assu. Through large-scale installation, sculpture, photography, printmaking, and painting, Sonny Assu merges the aesthetics of Indigenous iconography with a pop-art sensibility. This stunning retrospective spans over a decade of Assu's career, highlighting more than 120 full-colour works, including several never-before-exhibited pieces. Through analytical essays and personal narratives, Richard Van Camp, Marianne Nicolson, Candice Hopkins, and Ellyn Walker provide brilliant commentary on Assu's practice, its meaning in the context of contemporary art, and its wider significance in the struggle for Indigenous cultural and political autonomy. Exploring themes of Indigenous rights, consumerism, branding, humour, and the ways in which history informs contemporary ideas and identities, Sonny Assu: A Selective History is the first major full-scale book to pay tribute to this important, prolific, and vibrant figure in the Canadian contemporary art world."--

Art critic Leah Ollman has been contemplating Rossiter's work for years, and her accompanying text serves as an ideal complement to the images: 'All of the works pay homage to the rich idiosyncrasies of photographic papers across history, and restore a sanctity to the photograph as object. Made without cameras, lenses or film, the works are nothing but process and materiality.' The book also includes a selection of early 20th-century photographic paper packages (which the artist has collected for over 10 years) in a separate booklet.

Art is artificial; it is a fake version of reality. The imagery of art represents, illustrates suggests and provides stillness -- it sharpens our perspectives and deepens the experience of reality. Esther Tielemans's work aligns opposites, like the two- and three-dimensional, the abstract and figurative, reality and artificiality. It forms an environment in which the experience of the new precedes the habitual of the familiar. The authors of this book, Maria Barnas and Hans den Hartog Jager, describe their findings in a personal, poetic and investigative manner; while being supported by art history references and other cultural phenomena. Their in-depth approach illustrates how this body of work lets our perpetual sense of reality slip as it invades our senses. Yet this extraordinary environment, that grounds the past in the present, is simultaneously undetermined as it feels close to our sense of particularity. Where we are is suddenly different from where we once were.

This insightful publication, featuring more than 100 masterworks by artists such as Charles Sheeler, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Charles Demuth, sheds new light on the Precisionistaesthetic and the intellectual concerns, excitement, tensions, and ambivalences about industrialization that helped develop this important strand of early American modernism.<BR /> <BR /> Essays explore the origins of the style--which reconciled realism with abstraction and adapted European art movements like Purism, Cubism, and Futurism to American subject matter--as well as its relationship to photography, and the ways in which it reflected the economic and social changes brought about by industrialization and technology in the post-World War I world. In addition to making a meaningful contribution to the resurging interest in Modernism and its revisionist narratives, this book offers copious connections between the past and our present day, poised on the verge of a fourth industrial revolution"--

Praised and ridiculed : French painting 1820-1880
editor, Zürcher Kunstgesellschaft / Kunsthaus Zürich ; translations from German, Philippa Hurd and others
Munich : Hirmer ; 
In the juxtaposition of so-called 'Salon painters' and 'Reformers of painting' this volume offers a discriminating look at the controversial styles in French painting between 1820 and 1880 and the developments within the traditional genres. Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism -- these are still the most important stylistic labels which acted as slogans for French painting during the 19th century. At that time Delacroix, Courbet, Manet and many others left the 'straight and narrow' of painting, the academic-neo-classical manner. Highly controversial at the time, today these painters are celebrated worldwide as precursors of Modernism. The situation is very different when it comes to the Salon painters like Meissonier, Cabanel, Gérôme and Bouguereau, who were highly regarded at the time. Today they have been consigned to the fringes, especially in the German-speaking region -- unjustifiably, because they play an outstanding role with regard to our understanding of developments in art at the time.

"Rupestrian architecture is a particular form of architecture that presents 'constructive' and morphological characteristics different from the traditional ones. This volume proposes a general revision of procedures for the 3D acquisition, elaboration and representation of Rupestrian Architecture through a methodological study on the different phases of the process and a systematization of the operational criteria. The study was implemented by integrating different survey methods and, at the same time, by comparing software tools for data management and processing, focusing on the final representation and communication of the data. The methodological research was conducted as a national case study, represented by the Benedictine Monastery of Subiaco, an example of the integration of architecture and natural cavities that has allowed the author to find alternative solutions in fundamental aspects of the research"--Back cover.

The medieval world at our fingertips : manuscript illuminations from the collection of Sandra Hindman
De Hamel, Christopher, 1950- author
London ; Harvey Miller Publishers, an imprint of Brepols Publishers, 2018
No manuscript is an island. We may consider medieval illumination as a single characteristic of the whole Middle Ages, but every manuscript is part of the evolving history of European art and culture, and every one belongs to a place and period. The Sandra Hindman Collection is a remarkable journey through time and location. Every illuminated cutting described here is a microcosm of a larger history. A sublime initial from a twelfth-century Bible from France is part of a setting which includes Chartres Cathedral, the Crusades and Abelard; two late thirteenth-century narrative miniatures of saints from northern Italy have stepped from in a world inhabited by Giotto and Dante and the basilica of Santa Croce in Florence; a miniature by the Berlin Master of Mary of Burgundy belongs in age of Rogier van der Weyden and Hans Memling; a painting from a choir book by the 'Master B.F.' can hold its place with Leonardo da Vinci and Palestrina. Manuscripts were always at the heart of intellectual and visual culture. For thirty years Sandra Hindman has been selecting and refining a collection of perfect medieval miniatures which are the quintessence of their time. Each is a window which illuminates a world. The history of stained glass, architecture, fresco painting, tapestries and wood carving, as well as medieval literature, religion, music and romance, are all made slightly clearer and more focused by looking at the illuminated miniatures chosen for exhibition here.

Daubmann -- Chihuly over Venice : the artist's shining legacy / Tina Oldknow -- Koda studies : revisiting Artpark, forty years later / Heather Gring -- Works in the exhibition.
"Dale Chihuly is known worldwide as one of the most daring and innovative artists of his time. For decades, he has expanded the possibilities of--and subverted expectations about--the medium of glass, the role of glass artists in the art world, and the range of venues in which their art can be shown. In 2017, The New York Botanical Garden hosted the first garden exhibition of Chihuly's work in New York in over a decade. Dramatic vistas throughout NYBG's magnificent grounds became living backdrops for works created specifically for the exhibition, showcasing Chihuly's signature organic shapes in brilliant, luminous colors. More than twenty installations transformed not just the verdant outdoor areas, fountains, and pools but also the lush, plant-filled galleries of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory and the serene spaces of the LuEsther T. Mertz Library, where smaller works and early drawings revealed the evolution of Chihuly's artistic practice over nearly half a century. This volume not only commemorates the exhibition but offers an invaluable overview of the artist's celebrated career, with a particular emphasis on his site-specific outdoor work, much of which was developed for garden settings. New and adapted texts offer perspectives on landmark works and formative moments in Chihuly's development as an artist, such as his radical 1975 collaboration with Seaver Leslie in upstate New York and his renowned 1996 installations in Venice, Italy, and discuss how they have informed his practice to the present. Generously illustrated with lavish views of the works in NYBG's galleries and landscape and with fascinating archival photographs, CHIHULY offers a new perspective on the artist's prolific career, combining the things he loves best--art and nature."--Page 4 of cover.

Christopher Knowles : in a word
Anthony Elms, Hilton Als
New York, NY : Gregory R. Miller & Co. ; 
The artistic career of Christopher Knowles (born 1959) began at the age of 13, when his writings and recordings came to the notice of avant-garde theater director Robert Wilson. Still a teenager, Knowles went on to write the libretto for Wilson and Philip Glass opera, Einstein on the Beach, and his collaborations with Wilson would continue for decades. His practice spans many mediums - text, sound, painting, sculpture and performance - and exhibits a fascination with the materiality of language. In a Word is the most comprehensive look at Knowles' work to date, published for his exhibition of the same name, organized by Anthony Elms and Hilton Als. Containing an autobiographical text by the artist himself, new texts by Elms and curator Lauren Digiulio and a personal reflection by Als, this is an essential resource on an under-recognized artist.

Montréal, Québec : Galerie de l'UQAM, 
Essay / Louise Déry -- Prologue -- Statement of intentions -- Exhibition trajectory -- Conceptual trajectory -- Painting trajectory -- Choreographic trajectory -- Epilogue -- Writings of Françoise Sullivan.
Since the 1940s, Françoise Sullivan has created a vibrant and voluminous oeuvre of remarkable versatility. Constantly renewed by a rare inventiveness, her work has always remained faithful to the principles of freedom and engagement that she embraced during her early career in the Automatiste movement. Inspired by the great European and Native North American mythological traditions, passionate about art and poetry, and influenced by the time she spent in New York, Italy, Ireland and Greece, Sullivan has, in her boundless curiosity, never stopped experimenting with form and colour, gesture and movement, figuration and abstraction - not only in sculpture, performance, dance and photography, but also most decisively in painting.

On the paths of enlightenment : the myth of India in Western culture, 1808-2017
curated by Elio Schenini
Milano, Italy : Skira, 2017
"With the publication of 'On the Language and Wisdom of India' by Friedrich Schlegel in 1808 there emerged in the West a new and increased curiosity for India and its extraordinary civilization. Starting out from the reflections regarding Hinduism and Buddhism by Schopenhauer, in turn followed in the first decades of the 20th century by the literary works fo Hermann Hesse and the anthropological analyses by Carl Gustav Jung, with its thousand-years-old traditions and its spirituality India seduced a multitude of western intellectuals and artists who in this country identified one of the most important cradles of human civilization. During the last two centuries this gave rise to the creation of that myth of India which captured the imagination of the international young generations of the 1960s and 1970s. This volume retraces the history of this Indian fascination on the part of the western world by way of an extensive iconographic compilation and numerous contributions by various authors who examine the manifold spheres in which this fascination expressed itself in ranging from art to literature, music, religion, the history of customs and psychology. The result is a very singular itinerary covering the last two centuries of western culture in which among the many others involved we can find Schopenhauer, Kipling, Salgari, Redon, Gustave Moreau, Mata Hari, Kirchner, Hesse, Jung, Cartier-Bresson, Le Corbusier, Ginsberg, Pasolini, Sottsass, The Beatles, Rauschenberg, Luigi Ontani and Francesco Clemente."

Âmes sauvages : le symbolisme dans les pays baltes
sous la direction de Rodolphe Rapetti
Paris : Musée d'Orsay : 
"Le symbolisme européen et l'émancipation de la conscience qu'il véhicule sont indissociables dans les pays baltes de leur indépendance, survenue peu après la fin de la Première Guerre mondiale. Par le recours à la légende ou au folklore, l'Estonie, la Lettonie et la Lituanie, au-delà de l'influence de Munch, de Gallen-Kallela, de Gauguin ou encore de Van Gogh, ont forgé un langage qui leur est propre, empreint de la beauté des paysages de ces pays entre mer et forêt. La découverte de ces oeuvres singulières oblige à porter un regard nouveau sur ce mouvement artistique majeur à la charnière des XIXe et XXe siècles, le symbolisme. "Je suis un sauvage", écrivait Paul Gauguin en route vers les îles Marquises. Un siècle plus tard, ces "âmes sauvages" sont enfin ici à l'honneur."--Page 4 of cover.

Escher op reis = Escher's journey
Escher, M. C. 1898-1972, artist
[Zwolle] : WBOOKS, 2018
The Museum of Friesland brings M.C. Escher back to his hometown, Leeuwarden. In Escher's Journey, you can follow his development from a graphic designer to a world-famous artist. With more than eighty original prints, about twenty drawings, as well as various photographs and objects, visitors follow in the footsteps of this travel-mad graphic artist, who found inspiration for his most famous works in Italy, Switzerland, and Spain. The journey starts in the grey, flat Netherlands and takes you to the sun and mountains of the Mediterranean. Escher's love of travelling proved to be a determining factor in his artistic development. The sketches he made along the way were the inspiration for the masterpieces in which he manipulated reality years later. The exhibition ends with these iconic works that made Escher so famous and popular.

Cranach natürlich : Hieronymus in der Wildnis
Cranach, Lucas, 1472-1553, artist
Innsbruck : Haymon Verlag, 
"Lucas Cranach der Ältere (1472-1553) ist einer der wichtigsten und populärsten Maler der Dürerzeit - bis heute. Alle Welt kennt seine Porträts des Reformators Martin Luther. Doch Cranach hat noch mehr zu bieten: Der Künstler ist auch ein virtuoser 'Naturmaler'. Ob Landschaft, Tier oder Pflanze: Sein rascher Pinselhieb erweckt die auf der Leinwand verewigte Natur erneut zum Leben, verblüfft durch wissenschaftlich anmutenden Realismus ebenso wie durch tiefsinnige Symbolik. Zeit, einen frischen Blick auf einen alten Bekannten zu werfen! Der bislang kaum beachtete 'Naturmaler Cranach' steht im Zentrum dieses reich bebilderten Kunstbandes: In seinen Hieronymus-Bildern nimmt Lucas Cranach der Ältere den Kirchenvater Hieronymus als beliebtes religiöses Sujet der Renaissance auf. Bemerkenswerterweise übersteigt die Natur in seiner Darstellung ihre Funktion als 'Hintergrundlandschaft'. Nie zeigt sich der Naturmaler Cranach so originell, kreativ und wundersam wie hier: Warum verwandelt er die syrische Wüste, in der Hieronymus seine Busse tat, in einen üppigen Wald voller eigenartiger Tiere? Und wie nur sind Papagei und Biber ins Studierzimmer des Hieronymus gelangt? Die Autoren dieses Bandes präsentieren Antworten auf diese und andere Fragen und verorten Cranach im Kontext seiner Epoche: zwischen Naturwissenschaft und Natursymbolik, aber auch zwischen altem und neuem Glauben. Mit Beiträgen von Nils Büttner, Gábor Endrödi, Christian Hecht, Michael Hofbauer, Peter Morass, Dominic Olariu, Helena Pereña, Laura Resenberg, Andreas Tacke, Michael Thalinger und Agnes Thum"--Publisher's website.

Paul Cézanne : die Bilder einer Ausstellung 1907 in Paris besucht, betrachtet und beschrieben von Rainer Maria Rilke : 57 Gemälde und Aquarelle von Paul Cézanne und 33 Briefe von Rainer Maria Rilke
Rekonstruktion der Cézanne-Ausstellung im Grand Palais, zusammengestellt und eingeleitet von Bettina Kaufmann, herausgegeben von Lothar Schirmer
München : Schirmer/Mosel Verlag 
Im Oktober 1907 fand in Paris eine Gedächtnisausstellung zu Ehren des ein Jahr zuvor verstorbenen Malers Paul Cézanne statt. Sie umfasste 49 Gemälde und sieben Aquarelle, begründete Cézannes Ruf als Vater der modernen Malerei und trug seinen Ruhm in die Welt. Rainer Maria Rilke besuchte die Ausstellung mehrfach und schrieb über seine Eindrücke eine Serie von Briefen an seine Frau, die Bildhauerin Clara Rilke Westhoff. Seine Berichte zeigen, dass der Dichter von der Kunst Cézannes tiefgehend erschüttert war. Noch in seinen letzten Jahren bekannte er, der Maler sei sein wichtigstes Vorbild. Die Briefe gehören zu den bedeutendsten Zeugnissen einer frühen Rezeption des Werks von Cézanne. Sie enthalten zum einen erstaunliche künstlerische Einsichten, gehen inhaltlich aber auch weit über die Kunstkritik hinaus. Der vorliegende Band führt erstmals und in höchster Druckqualität alle Werke Cézannes zusammen, die 1907 im Salon d'Automne zu sehen waren und soweit sie heute bekannt sind. Ihnen gegenüber stehen Rilkes Briefe, und so erschließt sich in noch nie da gewesener Weise der Zusammenhang zwischen bildender Kunst und ihrem Einfluss auf den Dichter.

Allen Ruppersberg : intellectual property 1968-2018
edited by Siri Engberg ; contributions by Thomas Crow, Siri Engberg, Aram Moshayedi, Matthew S. Witkovsky & Allen Ruppersberg
Minneapolis, MN : Walker Art Center, 
This fully illustrated catalog accompanies a major retrospective exhibition on one of conceptual art's most inventive and acclaimed practitioners. Emerging in late-1960s Los Angeles, Ruppersberg was among that city's first generation of conceptual artists to espouse a working method that privileges ideas and process over conventional aesthetic objects. Deploying posters, books, postcards and even a café and hotel, his projects have consistently had at their center a focus on the American vernacular - its music, popular imagery and ephemera - mining the nuances of culture through its unsung conventions. This is the most comprehensive publication to date on Ruppersberg's work, featuring a wealth of scholarly content and critical writing connecting Ruppersberg's work to the larger contemporary art field. Produced by the Walker's award-winning design studio and in close collaboration with the artist, the book presents a holistic view of Ruppersberg's wide-ranging, 50-year practice.

From the rise of studio pottery in the 1910s to a number of new commissions by a young generation of UK-based artists, That Continuous Thing traces the changing shape of the ceramics studio over the last century, from the radical to the apparently traditional. Opening with exchange between Japan and the UK in 1910s and 1920s through the emergence of studio potters such as Bernard Leach, Shoji Hamada and Dora Billington, the book leads on to the Californian "clay revolution" of the 1950s and 1960s, with sculptures by the pioneering artist Voulkos. The book also includes works by contemporary artists made over the last three years at Angell's London-based Troy Town Art Pottery, which has been described as "a radical and psychedelic workshop for artists."

"In this richly illustrated book, Michael Fried-one of the most esteemed and influential art critics and art historians working today-has gathered eight major essays written between 1993 and 2013, on topics ranging from Jacques-Louis David, Théodore Géricault, and Caspar David Friedrich through Gustave Caillebotte and Roger Fry to recent films by Douglas Gordon and Thomas Demand. Gustave Courbet and Edouard Manet, too, are distinct presences along with, in the background, the great art critic Denis Diderot and, in the case of Friedrich, the philosopher Immanuel Kant. As always in Fried's writing, the emphasis falls equally on observation and argument: never have these artists (and one critic, Fry) been subjected to so searching a gaze, and never has the meaning of their respective enterprises been laid bare with comparable clarity and force. Another hallmark of Fried's work is its extraordinary originality, and that too is fully in evidence throughout this remarkable book, which will add to his reputation as one of the indispensable thinkers of our time"--

Investigating the reception and reuse of the imagery of one of the world's largest production companies, 'How to Read El Pato Pascual' explores the prevalent presence of Walt Disney in Latin America. Examined through artworks including painting, photography, graphic work, drawing, sculpture and video, as well as vernacular objects and documentary material, the book considers Disney's engagement within Latin America, extending from Donald Duck's first featured role, the 1937 Mexican-themed short 'Don Donald', to the 2013 attempt to copyright the Day of the Dead. The reach and influence of Disney is also examined in a series of commissioned essays drawing on cultural studies, historical research and postcolonial theory. 'How to Read El Pato Pascual' also features a reprint of 'How to Read Donald Duck' (Chile, 1971), an essay by Ariel Dorfman and Armand Mattelart that critiques Disney comics through a Marxist lens as vehicles of American cultural imperialism. The book includes artistic contributions from artists including Liliana Porter, Nadin Ospina, Enrique Chagoya, and Arturo Herrera, as well as written contributions from Jesse Lerner and Ruben Ortiz-Torres, amongst others.

With around 60 large-scale paintings on paper and Mylar film, and in the marbling technique, more than 40 handmade glass works, numerous videos, two slide projections, a large installation, as well as several in situ interventions, the exhibition provides a first comprehensive overview of the artist's painterly practice since 2006.

The exhibition includes some of the artist's most well known works including Paris, Montparnasse (1993), an immense and iconic photograph showing a seemingly endless block of flats; and Rhine II (1999/2015) a sleek digitally-tweaked vision of the river as a contemporary minimalist symbol. Kamiokande (2007) featuring the vast underground water tank within the Kamioka Nucleon Decay Experiment, Japan; and May Day IV (2000/2014) depicting hundreds of revellers at Germany's long-running Mayday techno music festival. Often employing a bird's-eye perspective, these large-format pictures which rival the scale of monumental paintings boast an abundance of precisely captured details, all of which are uncannily in focus. Since the late 1980s, Gursky has depicted a broad spectrum of contemporary life including sites of commerce, industry and tourism across the globe, making pictures that draw attention to our changing relationship with the natural world and chronicle the effects of globalisation on day-to-day life.

Rembrandt's Portrait of a Young Gentleman
Six, Jan, author
Amsterdam : Prometheus-Bert Bakker, 
"When art dealer Jan Six saw the 'Portrait of a Young Gentleman' in a Christie's auction catalogue, he instantly knew that it could not possibly be a work that had been attributed to 'the circle of Rembrandt', but that the master must have painted it himself. The last time a hitherto unknown painting by Rembrandt was discovered was in 1974, when 'The Baptism of the Eunuch' came to light. But how does one convince the world of such a discovery? Does something like an absolute eye exist? And how special is such a painting in comparison to all the other known works by the most famous Dutch painter? In this book Jan Six takes the reader on a compelling and erudite journey, all about his exciting discovery and a boy?s dream come true, showing the 'Portrait of a Young Gentleman' through the eyes of his discoverer. Jan Six (1978) studied art history and worked at Sotheby's London and in Amsterdam as head of the Old Master Paintings department. Since 2008 he operates as an art dealer and runs his own gallery, specialised in Dutch and Flemish Old Master Paintings and Drawings."--back cover.

"In the discipline of classical archaeology different terms such as 'realism', 'verism' or 'naturalism' have been coined - like in art history - for describing a physics-based approach of art to its subjects and have been filled with various sets of meanings. This volume aims at revealing the complexity of this discussion or at least part of it and present it to the wider public without masking its inconsistency. For this purpose, papers by renowned scholars have been combined with texts produced by students in several university courses. The book contains a foreword by the editors and eleven chapters on the topics of the discovery of reality, of mimesis, types of realism, and the quest for reality, of Greek portraits from Classicism to Hellenism, images of elderly women in Greek and Roman antiquity, statues of Greek athletes, the ugliness of the Greek philosopher en in Greek funeral reliefs, the iconography of the Greek population in comedy, Hellenistic genre figures s Socrates, Chrysippus, and Diogenes, Roman portraits, representations of craftsm such as fishermen, peasants or herdsmen, and grotesque pictures of dwarfs, beggars, and slaves"--Publisher's website.

Growing up with the impressionists : the diary of Julie Manet

London : I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd., 2017
Acknowledgements -- Julie Manet's impressionist childhood -- Julie Manet's diary 1893-1899 -- Epilogue -- Notes -- Select bibliography -- Image credits -- Index.
Julie Manet, the niece of Edouard Manet and the daughter of the most famous female Impressionist artist, Berthe Morisot, was born in Paris on 14th November 1878 into a wealthy and cultured milieu at the height of the Impressionist era. Many young girls still confide their inner thoughts to diaries and it is hardly surprising that, with her mother giving all her encouragement, Julie would prove to be no exception to the rule. At the age of ten, Julie began writing her "memoirs" but it wasn't until August 1893, at fourteen, that Julie began her diary in earnest: no neat leather-bound volume with lock and key but just untidy notes scribbled in old exercise books, often in pencil, the presentation as spontaneous as its contents. Her extraordinary diary - newly translated here by an expert of Impressionism, reveals a vivid depiction of a vital period in France's cultural history seen through the youthful and precocious eyes of the youngest member of what was surely the most prominent artistic families of the time.

American colonial women and their art : a chronological encyclopedia
Snodgrass, Mary Ellen, author
Lanham, Maryland : Rowman & Littlefield, 
"Less celebrated than their male counterparts, women have been vital contributors to the arts. Works by women of the colonial era represent treasured accomplishments of American culture and still impress us today, centuries after their creation. The breadth of creative expression is as impressive as the women themselves. In American Colonial Women and Their Art: A Chronological Encyclopedia, Mary Ellen Snodgrass follows the history of creative expression from the early 1600s to the late 1700s. Drawing upon primary sources--such as letters, diaries, travel notes, and journals--this timeline encompasses a wide variety of artistic accomplishments such as: stitchery, quilting, and rug hooking ; painting sculpture, and sketches ; essays, poems, and other writings ; Dance, acting, and oratory ; Musical composition and performance."--Back cover.

Michals, Duane, photographer
New York : Thames & Hudson, 2017
"Duane Michals' Portraits presents for the first time a comprehensive overview of more than a half-century of portrait photographs--many of iconic cultural figures--by one of our era's most influential and entertaining artists.Duane Michals, the subject of a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Carnegie Museums in 2014 and scheduled to travel in 2018, has long been recognized for his inventive photo sequences, which shaped the work of several generations of artists. But even as he enjoys wide acclaim, a central body of work by the eighty-five-year-old artist remains little known.For decades, Michals was a sought-after editorial photographer for leading magazines, portraying outstanding creative personalities of our era. This comprehensive selection of his inventive portraits--many not previously published in book form--accompanied by Michals' inimitable, sometimes hilarious observations and reminiscences, will delight his fans and engage new admirers. The book features intimate and illuminating images of musical performers such as Barbra Streisand and Johnny Cash; actors from Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams to Tilda Swinton; contemporary artists including Andy Warhol, David Hockney, and Jasper Johns; authors such as Norman Mailer and John Cheever; and old masters of modern art including Rene Magritte and Balthus."--

The orange balloon dog : bubbles, turmoil and avarice in the contemporary art market
Thompson, Donald N., author

Art, pay , love -- Is value the last paddle raised -- The art of more -- Tears in the market fabric -- An uber future -- The new world of museums -- The bubble.
"Within forty-eight hours in the fall of 2014, buyers in the Sotheby's and Christie's New York auction houses spent $1.7 billion on contemporary art. Non-taxed freeport warehouses around the globe are stacked with art held for speculation. One of Jeff Koons' five chromium-plated stainless steel balloon dogs sold for 50 percent more at auction than the previous record for any living artist. A painting by Christopher Wool, featuring four lines from a Francis Ford Coppola movie stencilled in black on a white background, sold for $28 million. In The Orange Balloon Dog, economist and bestselling author Don Thompson cites these and other fascinating examples to explore the sometimes baffling activities of the high-end contemporary art market. He analyzes what is at play in the exchange of vast amounts of money and what nudges buyers, even on the subconscious level, to imbue a creation with such high commercial value."--

L'ultimo Caravaggio : eredi e nuovi maestri : Napoli, Genova e Milano a confronto, 1610-1640

Questo originale progetto prende spunto dall'ultimo dipinto eseguito da Caravaggio prima della morte: il Martirio di Sant'Orsola (conservato a Palazzo Zevallos, la sede museale di Banca Intesa a Napoli), eseguito dal maestro nella primavera del 1610 per il collezionista genovese Marcantonio Doria che aveva interessi economici nella città partenopea. L'accoglienza del dipinto è tiepida, se non indifferente perché le preferenze artistiche erano altre, come dimostra il dipinto di medesimo soggetto (ma dallo stile totalmente differente) eseguito negli stessi anni da Bernardo Strozzi. Partendo dal confronto di questi due dipinti, il volume a corredo della mostra milanese rievoca le principali vicende artistiche di tre città italiane, legate all'orbita spagnola, in anni di rivolgimento del gusto, tra la rivoluzione tutta devota al naturale di Caravaggio e la nuova età colorata e festosa del Barocco: Napoli (la città da cui nel 1610 parte l'ultimo Caravaggio), Genova (la città in cui il dipinto arriva nella relativa indifferenza) e Milano (la città verso cui molti artisti attivi a Genova guardavano intorno al 1610-1620 e dove, paradossalmente, l'eco di Caravaggio, che vi era nato, era estremamente debole se non inesistente).0Il volume riunisce oltre 50 dipinti provenienti dalle principali collezioni pubbliche e private italiane ed europee (molti dei quali restaurati appositamente per l'occasione); oltre alle opere di Caravaggio, Procaccini e Strozzi, sono presentate opere di Battistello Caracciolo, Jusepe de Ribera, Giovanni Battista Crespi (il Cerano), Pier Francesco Mazzucchelli (il Morazzone), Luciano Borzone, Luigi Miradori (il Genovesino), Gioacchino Assereto, Peter Paul Rubens, Simon Vouet, Anton Van Dyck, Matthias Stomer, Orazio De Ferrari, Valerio Castello.

Le donne nel cantiere di San Pietro in Vaticano : artiste, artigiane e imprenditrici dal XVI al XIX secolo
a cura di Assunta Di Sante e Simona Turriziani
Foligno (PG) : Il formichiere, 
Questo libro prosegue nella linea di studi aperta dal volume Quando la Fabbrica costruì San Pietro. Un cantiere di lavoro, di pietà cristiana e di umanità, XVI-XIX secolo, curato da Assunta Di Sante e Simona Turriziani e pubblicato nel 2016, dove un'ampia sezione era dedicata ai lavori delle donne per la ricostruzione e decorazione della basilica vaticana. L'enorme successo riscontrato dalla tematica, tanto originale quanto attuale, ha spinto le curatrici a presentare un lavoro monografico sull'argomento, approfondendo alcuni profili di donne precedentemente solo accennati. Nel cantiere petriano sin dal Cinquecento ampi e variegati furono gli impieghi femminili in ambiti considerati da sempre appannaggio esclusivo degli uomini, se non altro per l'impegno fisico richiesto. La vivacità e l'imponenza del cantiere aveva favorito a Roma la concentrazione di artigiani e fornitori di materiale edile, i quali tendevano ad individuare nel rapporto coniugale la loro forza, alimentato anche dalle forme di assistenza nei confronti dei propri lavoratori messe in atto dalla Fabbrica. Nel cantiere vaticano le donne ebbero dunque un ruolo importante: figlie e mogli partecipavano in diverso modo all'attività di famiglia, garantendone la prosecuzione e lo sviluppo in caso di morte del padre o marito, e potendo godere di una sostanziale parità economica rispetto all'uomo. Tuttavia il lavoro delle donne nella basilica vaticana non è stato sempre un completamento di quello del capofamiglia, ma anche un'esperienza autonoma vissuta da donne scelte per le loro rare capacità artistiche, e non perché eredi di un defunto padre o marito.
