This fascicle of the CSIR deals with funerary stelae and funerary altars from the urban area of Flavia Solva (CSIR IV 3). It addresses first of all general questions, such as the boundaries of the territory of Flavia Solva and the sites, as well as the material, of the funerary stelae and altars. Further fundamental questions are addressed in chapters on the typology and iconography of the stelae or altars, as well as in an overview of the people named in inscriptions and their status, for which Ingrid Weber-Hiden is responsible. She has also dealt with epigraphic issues in a catalog of funerary stelae and altars. The catalog is structured by form, since a chronological order is difficult. This book also includes a subject index, a name index, an index of find spots and of the forms of the monuments, as well as an index of museums and remaining locations.

Ferdinand Hodler : Maler der frühen Moderne
Hodler, Ferdinand, 1853-1918
Bielefeld : Kerber Verlag 
Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918) is one of the most important Swiss artists of the early 20th century. Within Symbolism and Art Nouveau, he developed a distinctive style. The exhibition "Ferdinand Hodler: Painter of Early Modernism" in the Bundeskunsthalle has been the first comprehensive retrospective in Germany for almost 20 years and takes place in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Bern. With around 100 paintings, the exhibition provides an insight into the artist's work on the threshold of modernity. Hodler's tendency to ornament and formal repetition were considered novel by contemporary critics. The accompanying publication shows the artistic spectrum of this exceptional artist. Exhibition: Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, Germany (08.09.2017-28.01.2018).

Turning point in timber construction : a new economy
Dangel, Ulrich, author
Basel : Birkhäuser, part of Walter de Gruyter GmbH, Berlin, 
Faced with man-made climate change and the need to provide housing for a growing world population, society needs to rethink the way future buildings are made. Wood is a truly renewable building material that is unlimited in supply if its growth and harvest are sustainably managed. Recent technological advancements in engineering allow the use of timber for the construction of multi-story structures, turning our buildings into carbon sinks rather than becoming sources for CO2-emissions. The book presents convincing arguments for the increased use of wood as an alternative to more fossil fuel intensive building materials, with the goal of demonstrating that an integrated approach can have the potential for positive impact on the environment, local economies, and the building culture at large.

Gang of cosmos : Robert Longo
Longo, Robert. artist
Berlin : Hatje Cantz Verlag, 
This catalogue focuses on Robert Longo's recent series of charcoal drawings of well-known Abstract Expressionist paintings. The original paintings are immediately recognizable, but it is the overlooked or imperceptible details of the complex surface, the tactility of the paint, the brushstrokes and the pattern of the canvas that Longo has made visible in his translation from color to black and white, paint to charcoal. Exploring his ambivalence toward painting, Longo's drawings address the historical magnitude of Abstract Expressionism in art-historical and cultural contexts. Along with the Abstract Expressionist drawings, the book includes Longo's enormous seven-panel drawing of the US Capitol building and a 17-foot high black wax- surfaced sculpture of an American flag that appears to collapse into or fall through the floor -- Provided by the publisher.

Prints in Paris 1900 : from elite to the street
Fleur Roos Rosa De Carvalho ; with a preface by Phillip Dennis Cate
Amsterdam : Van Gogh Museum ; [2017?]
The French fin de siècle (1890-1905) was the most famous period in the art of printmaking. Pierre Bonnard, Alexandre Steinlen and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, among others, experimented intensively with the new printing techniques, with striking and beautiful results. The greatest innovation of these artists was the way they applied their talent to every level of the market: from deluxe proofs for the elite, especially for collectors, to applied graphic work for a broader audience. The reader of the book will be welcomed into these worlds from high art to art for 'the street'. The attractively designed book will be richly illustrated with fine examples of posters, sheet music and magazine illustrations, as well as the most exclusive and luxury collector's editions. The Van Gogh Museum with its fine and broad collection of 1,800 prints is a world renowned centre of research for Van Gogh and for his times and contemporaries.

Destruction's constructs -- Destructive creation -- Negations -- Disintegrity.
The effects and meanings of destruction are central to the work of many of our most influential artists. Since the early 1960s, artists have employed destruction to creative ends. Here destruction changes from a negative state or passive condition to a highly productive category. The destructive subversion of media imagery aims to release us from its controlling effects. The self-destructing artwork extinguishes art's fixity as arrested form and ushers in the ephemeral and contingent 'open work.'00This anthology explores artworks that convey the threat of destruction an how they have disrupted the perceived integrity of built structures and institutions. Artistic acts of iconoclasm or risk to the self have raised consciousness of authoritarian oppression. More understated works explore the theme of destruction in armed conflict, media violence, and threats to the environment. These text make up the first collection to be focused systematically on destruction in modern and contemporary art.

The conversation piece : making modern art in eighteenth-century Britain
Retford, Kate, 1974- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 
Pioneered by William Hogarth (1697-1764) and his peers in the early 18th century, and then revitalized by Johan Zoffany (1733-1810), the conversation piece was an innovative mode of portraiture, depicting groups posed in landscape or domestic settings. These artists grappled with creating complex multi-figured compositions and intricate narratives, filling their paintings with representations of socially, nationally, and temporally precise customs. Paying particular attention to the vibrant (and at times fabricated) interior and exterior settings in these works, Kate Retford discusses the various ways that the conversation piece engaged with the rich material culture of Georgian Britain. The book also explores how these portraits served a wide array of interests and concerns among familial networks and larger social groups. From codifying performances of politeness to engaging in cross-cultural exchanges, the conversation piece was a complex and nuanced expression of a multifaceted society.

Cottages ornés : the charms of the simple life
White, Roger, 1950- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 2017
Rustic roots -- Housing the peasants -- An abstract of Eden : the middle-class/genteel cottage -- Cottages to order : the role of the pattern book -- The Regency heyday -- The cottage of the Celtic fringes -- The social apotheosis -- The continental cottage orné -- Distant shores -- Postlude : the ornamental cottage in the Victorian era and after.
Tracing the history of cottages ornes (ornamental cottages), this copiously illustrated volume offers an engaging survey of an often-overlooked architectural genre. An invention of mid-18th-century England, these cottages were designed to facilitate a more informal way of living and were built in different guises that range from royal and imperial cottages to the working-class lodges that still dot the English countryside. Analyzing cottage designs by some of the leading architects of late-Georgian England-including Robert Adam, John Soane, and John Nash-Roger White explores the aesthetic values that made the form so appealing. As he follows the development of cottages ornes from the Celtic fringes to the Continent and the British colonies, White reveals the significant impact of the genre on social, cultural, and political history and examines the influence of cottage design on the architectural developments of the Victorian period and even the 20th century.

Eugene Von Bruenchenhein : mythologies
Von Bruenchenhein, Eugene, 1910-1983
Sheboygan, Wisconsin : John Michael Kohler Arts Center, 
From the 1930s until his death in 1983, Eugene Von Bruenchenhein was a prolific artist, producing paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and poetry in his small Milwaukee home. His large and unusual body of work was unknown to anyone except his closest family and friends until after his death; he is now deservedly considered, according to Roberta Smith, "among the great American outsider artists." --Exhibition: John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, USA (25.06.2017 - 14.01.2018).

Eros visible : art, sexuality and antiquity in Renaissance Italy
Turner, James, 1947- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 2017
Focusing on the impact of the erotic revolution that swept through 16th-century Italy, Eros Visible presents a compendious, revisionist account of High Renaissance art. Through close visual analysis of artworks and careful reading of related texts, James Grantham Turner demonstrates the surprisingly close connection between explicitly pornographic art and the canonical works of masters such as Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Full of new discoveries, this volume explores the passionate response to antiquity and how a new sex-positive philosophy not only encouraged an increased accentuation of sensual and erotic themes in art, but influenced the sexual cultures of both the court and the art studio. With an interdisciplinary approach that draws on a wide array of visual and textual erotica, Turner offers the first broad, synthetic history of the classically inspired and unambiguously lascivious sensibilities behind some of the most sublime artistic achievements of the Renaissance.

Illusion and realism : the game with the spectator in Dutch art, 1580-1660
Ziemba, Antoni, author
Frankfurt am Main : Peter Lang Edition, 
The book is a study on Dutch painting, drawing and printmaking of the 17th century, focused on interlocking its descriptive realism with the visual strategy of illusion. The author analyzes this relationship as a conjunction rather than an opposition. Illusionistic compositional devices were current not only in mythological, biblical and allegorical images but also in proper realistic representations of the world. At the same time, many visual inventions, which included illusionistic concepts, were presented with persuasive realism of the forms. Thus, different seventeenth-century Dutch artists - such as Hendrick Goltzius, Hendrick Vroom, Rembrandt, Vermeer ? attempted to produce 'open images' and to conduct a visual game with their beholders.

Synagogues in the Islamic world : architecture, design, and identity
edited by Mohammad Gharipour
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, 2017
This beautifully illustrated volume looks at the spaces created by and for Jews in areas under the political or religious control of Muslims. Covering regions as diverse as Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Spain, it asks how the architecture of synagogues responded to contextual issues and traditions, and how these contexts influenced the design and evolution of synagogues. As well as revealing how synagogues reflect the culture of the Jewish minority at macro and micro scales, from the city to the interior, the book also considers patterns of the development of synagogues in urban contexts and in connection with urban elements and monuments.

"During the 10th century Buddhism blossomed in the far west of Tibet into unexpected magnificence and greatness. In breathtaking views of temple complexes that are no longer accessible to Western cameras, this volume shows for the first time anywhere in the world the masterly relics of that incomparable era that have survived to the present day, from both the Indian and the Tibetan side of the old Kingdom of Guge. The rulers of the Kingdom of Guge were patrons of the arts who invited Indian scholars to translate the texts of the Buddha into Tibetan, thereby preserving the teachings. At the same time they had a large number of temple complexes built and ornamented to create unique artworks by master craftsmen from Kashmir. Until well into the 17th century Guge experienced two golden ages in which the West Tibetan artistic style was perfected in monasteries like Tholing, Tsaparang and Dungkar. Together with "TABO -- Gods of Light: The Indo-Tibetan Masterpiece" this volume represents a unique overall view of the monastery art of Western Tibet"--Publisher's website.

Idols and museum pieces : the nature of sculpture, its historiography and exhibition history 1640-1880
Caroline van Eck (ed.)
Berlin ; De Gruyter ; 
The publication of Winckelmann's Geschichte der Kunst des Altertums in 1764 is considered as the defining moment in the genesis of the modern, scientific study of sculpture. It was a formalist and secular history, concentrating on the statue as a work of art, and studying sculpture in a museum setting, abstracting from its original religious, social or political functions. Other 17th- and 18th-century authors tried to understand those functions and why statues so often excited violent reactions ranging from adoration to abuse. The collection of essays aims to be a first investigation of the questions that arise out of an awareness that the origins of the Western historiography are much more complex than may appear from the perspective of Winckelmann's vision of the Graeco-Roman tradition.

ReSignifications : European Blackamoors, Africana readings
edited by Awam Amkpa
Rome : Postcart, 
ReSignifications interprets the "Blackamoor" trope in Western culture. This tradition of decorative art emerged at the intersection of cross-cultural encounters shaped by centuries of migration, exchange, conquest, servitude, and exile. ReSignifications links classical and popular representations of African bodies in European art, culture, and history. It moderates and subverts artistic conventions by using the works of contemporary artists from Africa, Europe, North and South America, and the Caribbean to engage in dialogue with the broad historical array of ornamental representations of African bodies.

Atem, Gen, 1967- author
Berlin : Hatje Cantz, 2016
A Zen monk who sprayed graffiti on subway cars and threw paint at famous people: Gen Atem, the wild pioneer of the European urban art movement. In the eighties and nineties Gen Atem worked with New York hip hop legend Rammellzee. Their joint, multimedia performances Gothic Futurism -- Ikonoklast Panzerism were legendary: even Madonna, the Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy were among the spectators. Now his latest work is presented in this book: a clash with everyone and everything. Both the beautiful and fascinating as well as the horrible and insignificant, even the intangible and incomprehensible is attacked and questioned: is globalization destroying our culture, and does self-representation preserve my identity? Gen Atem relies on the power of images and invites viewers to devise their own answers: only he or she who participates is ready for the revolution.

Richard Gerstl : retrospective
edited by Jill Lloyd and Ingrid Pfeiffer in collaboration with Raymond Coffer ; with preface by Ronald S. Lauder ; foreword by Renée Price ; and essays by Raymond Coffer, Jane Kallir, Diethard Leopold, Jill Lloyd, Ingrid Pfeiffer, Maria Sitte and Karol Winiarczyk
[Munich] : Hirmer ; 2017
The Viennese artist Richard Gerstl is still regarded as being an insider tip. And yet he was one of the most important artists in Vienna in around 1900, alongside Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka. Although he was only 25 years old when he died, he created an exciting and unusual oeuvre. This volume accompanying the first comprehensive retrospective in Germany introduces all the aspects of this exceptional artist. The artistic career of Richard Gerstl (1883?1908) extended over only approximately five years. During his lifetime he refused to allow his work to be exhibited in any way. As a result of his dramatic early death by his own hand many of his works were destroyed and almost no personal belongings have survived. The present work on his entire oeuvre finally fills the gap this has left. In his subjects portraits, landscapes and nude paintings, including the first nude self-portrait by an artist since Dürer, Gerstl succeeded in freeing his style from that of Salon painting. He applied the paint in an increasingly pastose and free manner and created pictures which are regarded as some of the most modern works of his time.--

Copy paste : bad ass architectural copy guide
by The Why Factory ; concept and editors: Winy Maas and Felix Madrazo ; with Adrien Ravon and Diana Ibáñez-López
Rotterdam : nai010 Publishers, 
New! A new face! A new style! Worldwide, there is talk of a cult of novelty. This is also true in architecture, where architects compete against each other in terms of innovation and originality. The Why Factory does things differently, and in Copy Paste, it explores the possibilities of copying in architecture. What are the really original ideas in architecture? Isn't it better to ask what someone adds to the existing repertoire and then to evaluate that? In science, it is common to define originality in that respect. This type of attitude seems to be a taboo in architecture. So now the time has come to stop this obsessive pursuit of unique authorship. The Why Factory brings together diverse viewpoints on the dilemma of copying in architecture, along with the ethical and legal obligations. This book contains a versatile guide to copying, and explores the potential by means of a broad set of scenarios with the help of various tools.

Yau, John, 1950- author
London : Lund Humphries, 2017
Foreword / by Barry Schwabsky -- Introduction -- First breakthrough -- Pisanello's The Vision of St. Eustace, 1438-42 -- Landscape and abstraction -- The 1990s -- The twenty-first century.
This book offers the first detailed account of the paintings of American artist Thomas Nozkowski (born 1944), creator of modestly-sized abstract works that swiftly convey what one writer described as 'a remarkable sense of freedom within constraint.' As an emerging artist in the 1970s, Thomas Nozkowski's mature style developed in the wake of Minimalism, Pop Art and Colour Field painting and during a decade which became defined by movements - such as Conceptual and Performance art - that eschewed painting. While many artists identified with the notion of 'painting's terminal condition', Nozkowski chose to express personal experience through small-scale canvases that refused to adhere to 'a signature style' or align themselves with a particular movement. Through John Yau's perceptive text, the trajectory of Nozkowski's very individual artistic pathway is clearly presented.

Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts at 25
Ahtone, Heather, author
Salem, Oregon : Hallie Ford Museum of Art, 
"Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts at 25 explores the first twenty-five years of a remarkable nonprofit printmaking and traditional arts studio based on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in eastern Oregon, the only such center located on a reservation community in the United States. Art historian Prudence Roberts, drawing from conversations with CSIA founder, the artist James Lavadour, narrates the institute's history from its beginnings through the establishment of a professional quality printmaking program and an international reputation. Native American art scholar heather ahtone and curator Rebecca Dobkins trace the development of indigenous printmaking in North America, further contextualizing this story. Over sixty color plates illustrate selected work from the dozens of artists, indigenous and non-indigenous, who have completed residencies at CSIA since its founding, including luminaries of contemporary Native American art Rick Bartow, Joe Feddersen, Jeffrey Gibson, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, and Marie Watt." --Publisher description

Bringing together leading experts in the field, this book provides a comprehensive, critical overview of the developments in architecture from 1960 to 2010. It consists of two parts: the first section providing a presentation of major movements in architecture after 1960, and the second, a geographic survey that covers a wide range of territories around the world. This book not only reflects the different perspectives of its various authors, but also charts a middle course between the 'aesthetic' histories that examine architecture solely in terms of its formal aspects, and the more 'ideological' histories that subject it to a critique that often skirts the discussion of its formal aspects.

Autonomy -- Anamorphosis -- Automatism -- Embodiment -- Projection.
Pollock's Modernism' provides a new interpretation of the art of Jackson Pollock (1912?1956), one that is based on a phenomenological investigation of the pictorial effects of particular paintings. Focusing on major works that span the artist's career - including Mural (1943), Cathedral (1947), Number 1A, 1948, One: Number 31, 1950, and Portrait and a Dream (1953), Michael Schreyach argues that Pollock's achievement is best understood by attending to how, technically and formally, he instituted certain modes of pictorial address and structures of beholding in his paintings. From this perspective, Pollock is shown to be an artist who transformed the means by which the phenomenological interdependence of sensation and cognition in our embodied experience could be represented.

Visual voyages : images of Latin American nature from Columbus to Darwin
Bleichmar, Daniela, 1973- author
New Haven : Yale University Press in association with The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, 
Foreword / Catherine Hess -- Introduction -- Rewriting the book of nature -- The value of nature -- Collecting: from wonder to order -- New landscapes -- Notes -- Bibliography -- Acknowledgments -- Index -- Illustration credits.
From the voyages of Christopher Columbus to those of Alexander von Humboldt and Charles Darwin, the depiction of the natural world played a central role in shaping how people on both sides of the Atlantic understood and imaged the region we now know as Latin America. Nature provided incentives for exploration, commodities for trade, specimens for scientific investigation, and manifestations of divine forces. It also yielded a rich trove of representations, created both by natives to the region and visitors, which are the subject of this lushly illustrated book. Author Daniela Bleichmar shows that these images were not only works of art but also instruments for the production of knowledge, with scientific, social, and political repercussions. Early depictions of Latin American nature introduced European audiences to native medicines and religious practices. By the 17th century, revelatory accounts of tobacco, chocolate, and cochineal reshaped science, trade, and empire around the globe. In the 18th and 19th centuries, collections and scientific expeditions produced both patriotic and imperial visions of Latin America.

Vues de près, les peintures antiques de la villa Adriana à Tivoli, les fresques de Raphaël au palais du Vatican, mais aussi celles de la galerie des Carrache dans le palais Farnèse, et tant d'autres, offrent un spectacle étonnant. Ce sont des oeuvres striées de noms, de dates et même d'esquisses, très différentes des images lisses, intactes et éclatantes auxquelles les livres d'art nous ont habitués. Les graffitis y sont omniprésents. Ils furent réalisés par des artistes parfois célèbres, au cours de leur période de formation à Rome, par des amateurs lors du Grand Tour, par des soldats ou des touristes de passage à Rome entre les XVIe et XIXe siècles.

Making wall mosaics -- Mosaics by century.
"Part One deals with the making of wall and vault mosaics. It falls into four chapters which cover the different production stages, from the making of glass and of mosaics to what we can deduce about artists and costs, and what can be said about the value of mosaics. These are all aspects of mosaic-making that matter, because the appearance of a mosaic was governed not only by the artist's skill and choices but also by the materials the artist had available to work with. If a particular colour could not be made or bought, or if the supply ran short, then it could not be used in a mosaic. So much of what is actually on the wall was governed by this very simple rule of thumb"--

A magnificent faith : art and identity in Lutheran Germany
Heal, Bridget, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2017
"A Magnificent Faith' explains how and why Lutheranism - a confession that derived its significance from the promulgation of God's Word - became a visually magnificent faith, a faith whose adherents sought to captivate Christians' hearts and minds through seeing as well as through hearing. Although Protestantism is no longer understood as an exclusively word-based religion, the paradigm of evangelical ambivalence towards images retains its power. This is the first study to offer an account of the Reformation origins and subsequent flourishing of the Lutheran baroque, of the rich visual culture that developed in parts of the Holy Roman Empire during the later seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The volume opens with a discussion of the legacy of the Wittenberg Reformation. Three sections then focus on the confessional, devotional, and magnificent image, exploring turning points in Lutherans' attitudes towards religious art. Drawing on a wide variety of archival, printed, and visual sources from two of the Empire's most important Protestant territories - Saxony, the heartland of the Reformation, and Brandenburg - 'A Magnificent Faith' shows the extent to which Lutheran culture was shaped by territorial divisions. It traces the development of a theologically-grounded aesthetic, and argues that images became prominent vehicles for the articulation of Lutheran identity not only amongst theologians but also amongst laymen and women. By examining the role of images in the Lutheran tradition as it developed over the course of two centuries, 'A Magnificent Faith' offers a new understanding of the relationship between Protestantism and the visual arts."--Publisher's description.

Raphael, 1483-1520, artist
München : Hirmer, 
Along with Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, Raphael ranks among the most important masters of art history. This volume presents his most significant and finest drawings and paintings and, in doing so, provides an overview of the various periods of his career: from the early Umbrian period (until 1504) and the years in Florence (1504-1508) to the Roman period (1508-1520). Based on this wealth of material, the volume examines Raphael's design methods as well as his process of preparing panel or canvas paintings and frescoes. Another focus is on the materials, such as silverpoint, pen, ink, charcoal or red chalk, which he used at particular times to accomplish specific tasks.

A monograph on Amelie von Wulffen has long been overdue. For more than twenty years, the artist has been developing an oeuvre that is quite diverse in formal and stylistic terms (collages, installations, animation films, drawings, sculptures, and paintings), yet possesses a thematic consistency that is revealed in this publication. While her motifs appear to be private and personal, they manifest the problematic coming to terms with the repercussions of German (cultural) history, making her an insistent chronicler of suppression. The acid humor permeating her works spares no humanly possible abysses and is most obvious and direct in her drawings and comics. The texts of this richly illustrated monograph explore Wulffen's contribution to the discourse on painting as well as psychoanalytical aspects, and present the painter as a role model for a younger generation of artists.00Exhibition: Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany (23.10.2015-21.02.2016) / Studio Voltaire, London, UK (10.02.-02.04.2017).

Art is always a great declaration of love. Even when it is made through the tragic images of a crucifixion, the touching embrace of the Sarcophagus of the Spouses in the National Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia, the ghostly pallor of The Dead Christ by Mantegna in the Pinacoteca di Brera, the dramatic and hidden truth of Gericault' Raft of the Medusa, the silent, gentle abandonment of Böcklin's Isle of the Dead, the invasive bodies and distorted faces of Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon, or the disturbing head of Marc Quinn's son, executed with his mother's blood and placenta. These are all profound and desperate declarations of love to: the value of sacrifice as a means of salvation; married life that defies the transience of time; faith in resurrection and the joys of the spirit; the single-minded struggle in the name of a disturbing and negated truth; the abandonment and silence of solitude filled with memories, and the joy for a new life that must experience pain to be born.

Women artists in Paris, 1850-1900
Madeline, Laurence, author
New York, New York : American Federation of Arts ; 2017
Paris was the epicenter of art during the latter half of the nineteenth century, luring artists from around the world with its academies, museums, salons, and galleries. Despite the city's cosmopolitanism and its cultural stature, Parisian society remained strikingly conservative, particularly with respect to gender. Nonetheless, many women painters chose to work and study in Paris at this time, overcoming immense obstacles to access the city's resources. 'Women Artists in Paris, 1850-1900' showcases the remarkable artistic production of women during this period of great cultural change, revealing the breadth and strength of their creative achievements. Guest Curator Laurence Madeline (Chief Curator at Musées d'art et d'histoire, Geneva) has selected close to seventy compelling paintings by women of varied nationalities, ranging from well-known artists such as Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, and Rosa Bonheur, to lesser-known figures such as Kitty Kielland, Louise Breslau, and Anna Ancher.

Andō, Hiroshige, 1797-1858
Munich : Prestel, c2017
Presented in a style as stunning as the prints it celebrates, this survey of Hiroshige tells the fascinating story of the last great practitioner of ukiyo-e, or "pictures of the floating world." Hiroshige is considered to be the tradition's most poetic artist and his work had a marked influence on Western painting towards the end of the 19th century. Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Paul Ce zanne, and James Whistler were inspired by Hiroshige's serene depictions of the natural world. Arranged chronologically, this book illustrates through text and magnificent reproductions Hiroshige's youth and early career; his artistic development in the genre of landscape prints; his depictions of Edo and the provinces; the flower and bird prints; and his many popular books and paintings. It discusses the historic and cultural environment in which Hiroshige flourished and the many reasons his art continues to be revered and imitated. Filled with 300 color reproductions, and featuring a clamshell box and Japanese-style binding, this volume is destined to become the definitive examination of Hiroshige's oeuvre.

Inventions, Modern Marvels, and Mad Scientists -- Postscript: New SF Images for a Postwar World -- A Prewar and Early War Animated Science Fiction Filmography -- A Science Fiction Animation Bibliography.
" Long before flying saucers, robot monsters, and alien menaces invaded our movie screens in the 1950s, there was already a significant but overlooked body of cinematic science fiction. Through analyses of early twentieth-century animations, comic strips, and advertising, Animating the Science Fiction Imagination unearths a significant body of cartoon science fiction from the pre-World War II era that appeared at approximately the same time the genre was itself struggling to find an identity, an audience, and even a name. In this book, author J.P. Telotte argues that these films helped sediment the genre's attitudes and motifs into a popular culture that found many of those ideas unsettling, even threatening. By binding those ideas into funny and entertaining narratives, these cartoons also made them both familiar and non-threatening, clearing a space for visions of the future, of other worlds, and of change that could be readily embraced in the post-war period.

Köln : Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2017
Abstraction is considered as one of the significant formal articulations of modern art, and it is most closely associated with painting. The relentless analysis of the medium, breaking it down to its zero point, by the avant garde of the 1910s was followed by a recurrent burgeoning of nonrepresentational painting, particularly in Abstract Expressionism, Informalism, and Minimal Art. After modern abstraction of the 1960s was informed by skepticism of painting and the very idea of creative authorship; this was counterpointed with sensuality and intuition in the postmodern phase from the 1980s. Featuring some sixty different art positions, the catalogue will place the focus on the present-day international situation of the nonrepresentational easel painting, covering the full range of a still significant painterly practice.00Exhibition: Kunsthalle Krems, Germany (02.07.-.05.11.2017).

The true center of Glasgow / John Giorno -- Poetry Club archive -- Totally wired : the lifeworld of Jim Lambie / Suzanne Cotter -- Empty and full : Jim Lambie in conversation with Daniel Baumann -- Material meanings; or, to render visible / Sophie Woodward.
This long-awaited volume surveys the career of Glasgow-based contemporary sculptor Jim Lambie. From his distinctive floor works, striped from wall to wall with vibrant electrical tape, to his paint-soaked mattresses, Lambie adroitly sculpts humor and pathos from the clutter of modern life. Working with items immediately at hand, as well as those sourced in secondhand and hardware stores, he resurrects record decks, speakers, clothing, accessories, doors, and mirrors to form sculptural elements in larger compositions. Lambie prioritizes sensory pleasure over intellectual response. He selects materials that are familiar and have a strong personal resonance, so that they offer a way into the work as well as a springboard to a psychological space beyond. This volume not only serves as a definitive mid-career survey but also as a major reframing of the artist's work. Lambie's practice has long been understood through the lens of punk and rock music, a frequent theme of his works' titles. Here the artist and new essays instead trace his approach to the rich material histories he mines and the scrappy, resourceful spirit of his hometown, Glasgow.

The Concept of the Animal and Modern Theories of Art

New York : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
"This book examines the importance of the animal in modern art theory, using classic texts of modern aesthetics and texts written by modern artists to explore the influence of the human-animal relationship on nineteenth- and twentieth-century artists and art theorists. The book is unique due to its focus on the concept of the animal, rather than on images of animals, and it aims towards a theoretical account of the connections between the notions of art and animality in the modern age. Roni Gren's book spans various disciplines, such as art theory, art history, animal studies, modernism, postmodernism, posthumanism, philosophy, and aesthetics."--Back cover.

Isa Genzken : sculpture as world receiver
Lee, Lisa, 1978- author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2017
Introduction -- Geometries of lived perspective -- Make life beautiful! -- Plastic allegories -- Radical exposure.
The work of German sculptor Isa Genzken is brilliantly receptive to the ever-shifting conditions of modern life. In this first book devoted to the artist, Lisa Lee reflects on Genzken's tendency to think across media, attending to sculptures, photographs, drawings, and films from the entire span of her four-decade career, from student projects in the mid-1970s to recent works seen in Genzken's studio. Through penetrating analyses of individual works as well as archival and interview material from the artist herself, Lee establishes four major themes in Genzken's oeuvre: embodied perception, architecture and built space, the commodity, and the body. Contextualizing the sculptor's engagement with fellow artists, such as Joseph Beuys and Bruce Nauman, Lee situates Genzken within a critical and historical framework that begins in politically fraught 1960s West Germany and extends to the globalized present. Here we see how Genzken tests the relevance of the utopian aspirations and formal innovations of the early twentieth century by submitting them to homage and travesty. Sure to set the standard for future studies of Genzken's work, Isa Genzken is essential for anyone interested in contemporary art.

Zürich : Scheidegger & Spiess, 
Robert Zünd (1827?1909) is Switzerland?s?Master of the Beech Leaf,? revered for his light-flooded paintings of bucolic landscapes. Tobias Madörin has achieved wide critical acclaim for his photographic tableaus that depict the interactions between people and their surrounding environment. Embedded in both artists? work is a fascination with observation, or the intensity of the gaze, and so their works form a stylistically consistent pairing, the subject of an exhibition at Kunstmuseum Luzern in summer 2017.0'Bellevue' juxtaposes Zünd?s paintings with photographs by Madörin, some of which show the same views. Zünd?s paintings of sunlit paradises are so precisely rendered that, rather than enjoying their beauty, viewers feel compelled to look more closely. Madörin achieves a similar intensity in his photographs, working with a large-format analog camera that lends an unusual slowness and attention to detail to the photographic process. The book provides a new way of approaching the work of both artists and their perception of the landscape at the heart of Switzerland. A wealth of illustrations is complemented by essays by curators Fanni Fetzer and Dominik Müller and American historian Jonathan Steinberg.00Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Luzern, Switzerland (08.07.-15.10.2017).

The Barberini tapestries : woven monuments of baroque Rome
Harper, James G., 1965- author. d
Milano, Italia : Officina Libraria, 
Introduction : the Barberini and 17th century Rome -- Weaving a reputation : the Barberini tapestry manufactory -- Giovanni Francesco Romanelli and the design of tapestry -- A close look at the Barberini Life of Christ -- The installation of tapestry in seventeenth century Rome -- The afterlife of the Barberini Life of Christ and the taste for tapestry in America -- The conservation of the Barberini Life of Christ from 1891 to 2016.
This book is the first sustained scholastic treatment of the Life of Christ tapestries, which were commissioned by Pope Urban VIII's nephew, Cardinal Francesco Barberini. Covering over 2800 square feet, the series is one of the grandest monuments of seventeenth century Rome. A close reading of each panel sets the tapestries into a number of overlapping contexts; they indicate the stylistic advances of the high Baroque period, as well the political and social agendas of their patrons. The introductory chapter lays out the context of Urban VIII's Rome. Subsequent chapters reconstruct the history of Cardinal Barberini's private tapestry commissions, and the activity of Giovanni Francesco Romanelli, the supervising designer of the Life of Christ. The contemporary usage and display of the tapestries is discussed, as is the transfer of the series to the United States and its subsequent display in New York's Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

Pahari paintings : the Horst Metzger collection in the Museum Rietberg
Goswamy, B. N., 1933- author
New Delhi, India : Niyogi Books ; 2017
The exhibition shows forty works of Indian Pahari painting from the Horst Metzger Collection. The paintings originate from the workshops of the Pahari region, in the foothills of the Himalayas in north-western India, and were commissioned in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries by princes with a penchant for art. Most of them show scenes from wide-ranging series presenting Krishna?s life, but some illustrate texts describing the wondrous deeds of the goddesses. The works in the collection are regarded as pearls of Indian painting on account of their delicate paper, fine drawing and valuable colour pigments. Exhibition: Museum Rietberg, Zürich, Switzerland (01.12.2016-21.05.2017).

Mengele, dance of death : Jean Tinguely
texts, Sven Keller, Sophie Oosterwijk, Roland Wetzel ; translation, Alexandra Cox
Basel : Museum Tinguely, A Cultural Commitment of Roche : c2017
The equally burlesque and sepulchral installation Mengele-Dance of Death (1986), created out of the remnants of a devastating fire, assumes a key position in the late oeuvre of Swiss artist Jean Tinguely. The group of kinetic sculptures combines the memento mori motif, a reminder of the equality of all mankind in the face of death, and an admonition against all forms of totalitarianism with the irony and penchant for the grotesque that are peculiar to Tinguely?s work. The publication will be released on occasion of the opening of the specially created exhibition space in the Tinguely Museum Basel. Contributions by Roland Wetzel, Sophie Oosterwijk and Sven Keller, along with an interview with Jean Tinguely shed light on the work?s genesis, the tradition of the dance of death motif, and the myth of the name-giving NS perpetrator Mengele.

Memory and redemption : public monuments and the making of late medieval landscape
Timmermann, Achim, author
Turnhout, Belgium : Brepols, 
From the Ahenny crosses to the Zderad column : northern Sacroscapes to c. 1500 -- In the city : persuasion and protection -- On the road : perdition and perpetuity -- To Heaven (or Hell) : the pictorial and allegorical imaginary.
Erected in large numbers from about 1300 onwards, and featuring increasingly sophisticated designs, wayside crosses and other edifices in the public sphere - such as fountains, pillories and boundary markers - constituted the largest network of images and monuments in the late medieval world. Not only were they everywhere, they were also seen by nearly everyone, because large sections of the populace were constantly on the move. Carrying an entire spectrum of religious, folkloric and judicial beliefs, these monuments were indeed at the very heart of late medieval life. This is the first critical study of these fascinating and rich structures written by a medievalist art historian. Focusing on the territories of the former Holy Roman Empire, this investigation considers such important edifices as the towering wayside crosses of Wiener Neustadt and Brno or the elaborate pillories of Kasteelbrakel and Wrocław, though less ostentatious works such as the Bildstöcke of Franconia and Carinthia or the high crosses of Westphalia and the Rhineland are equally examined. In addition, the study looks at the homiletic, literary, devotional and artistic imagination, in which wayside crosses and other such structures helped constitute a spiritual and allegorical landscape that very much complemented and put pressure on the physical landscapes traversed and inhabited by the contemporary public.--Back cover.

The unfinished palazzo : life, love and art in Venice : the stories of Luisa Casati, Doris Castlerosse and Peggy Guggenheim
Mackrell, Judith, author
New York : Thames & Hudson Inc., 2017
Luisa Casati: the living work of art -- Doris Castlerosse: the salonnière -- Peggy Guggenheim: the collector.
Commissioned in 1750, the Palazzo Venier was planned as a testimony to the power and wealth of a great Venetian family, but the fortunes of the Venier family waned and the project was abandoned with only one storey complete. Empty, unfinished, and in a gradual state of decay, the building was considered an eyesore. Yet in the early 20th century the Unfinished Palazzo's quality of fairytale abandonment, and its potential for transformation, were to attract and inspire three fascinating women at key moments in their lives: Luisa Casati, Doris Castlerosse and Peggy Guggenheim. Each chose the Palazzo Venier as the stage on which to build her own world of art and imagination, surrounded by an amazing supporting cast, from d'Annunzio and Nijinsky, via Noel Coward and Cecil Beaton, to Yoko Ono.

The volume proposes the works of 33 artists from the principal cultural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa. Contemporary African art--fuelled by the relations between pre-existing populations and immigrants of various origins, by the blend of religions, cultures, urban tribes, genres, ethnic groups and by the close relationship between nature, traditions and rituals--mirrors the depth of its own roots. Today it exhibits a strong impetus for research, knowledge and the phenomenological understanding of the principal historical-religious and ethnical-anthropological problems of the continent.00.

Amsterdam : Rijksmuseum, 
Matthijs Maris initially acquired fame as a painter in the style of the The Hague School, just like his famous brothers, Jacob and Willem. However, over the years he abandoned this realistic palette for more introverted and symbolic themes and started portraying dreamy children, young people on the verge of adulthood, fairytale figures and mythical landscapes using an increasingly smudged painting technique. Even in his own time, Maris was admired at home and abroad by collectors and artists including Vincent van Gogh. In spite of, or perhaps due to, his success, Matthijs Maris grew increasingly bitter and spent his last years in his London studio, lonely and almost a recluse. This publication tells the striking story of the painter, Matthijs Maris (1839- 1917). With over 75 paintings, drawings, etchings and pieces of applied art, the Rijksmuseum, partly thanks to a unique loan agreement with The Burrell Collection in Glasgow, provides a broad overview of this unjustly forgotten artist.

Unlakecity : geography and architecture of Mexico City : where there was a lake, now there is a city
publisher, Kristin Feireiss, Hans-Jürgen Commerell
Berlin : Aedes am Pfefferberg, 2017
Mexico is the most populous metropolis in America. At two thousand meters above the sea level, it is surrounded by mountains that overpass the three thousand meters of altitude. 'Unlakecity - where there was a lake, now there is a city', is an exhibition that focuses on the geography and the architecture of Mexico City, from the past to the present. Concentrating in two important key subjects - water and the construction of public space, the urban development will be explained visualizing the geographical condition of the city. Curated by Miquel Adrià and Alejandro Hernández Gálvez, the exhibition's title 'Unlakecity' alludes to the transformation that took place over the centuries in the valley of Mexico. The term makes reference to 'un lago', a lake and 'unlake', the process of disappearance of the lake through a constant "urban dehydration". The exhibition is divided in two sections: 'There was a lake' and 'Now there is a city'. The first section reflects on the meaning of water within the context of the city. The second section shows projects of public space, not only understood as squares or parks, but including cultural buildings and public institutions, such as museums, schools, markets and hospitals. Each thematic focus briefly describes the history, and shows some present conditions and takes a glance into future projects, with some utopian ideas but also that are already under construction. Besides maps, plans and photographs, the exhibition showcases a topographic model of the valley of Mexico that presents the current hydrological conditions, a video which shows the transformation of the city during the past five hundred years, and a series of interviews with Mexican architects, urbanists and intellectuals.

In ten essays, leading established and emerging scholars reassess the nature, significance and context of the Decorated style in English Gothic architecture. Thirty-Five years after the publication of Jean Bony's seminal work on the so-called Decorated style of English architecture ('The English Decorated Style: Gothic Architecture Transformed', 1979), this volume brings together a selection of groundbreaking essays by the most promising emerging scholars of English medieval architecture, together with contributions by two of the leading established authorities on the subject: Nicola Coldstream ('The Decorated Style: Architecture and Ornament, 1240-1360', 1994) and Paul Binski ('Gothic Wonder: Art, Artifice, and the Decorated Style, 1290-1350', 2014). The contributors revisit Bony's work and reassess the scholarly legacy of the past three-and-a-half decades. Drawing on a range of innovative methodologies, they then present exciting new insights into the nature and significance of English architecture in the period, focusing particularly on its broader European context.

Matisse, Bonnard : long live painting!
editor, Felix Krämer
Munich : Prestel, 
Long live painting!" With this rallying cry, Henri Matisse, greeted his colleague Pierre Bonnard on a 1925 postcard from Amsterdam. Widely considered two of the greatest painters of French modernism, they were united by a forty-year-long friendship and a keen appreciation of each other's work. This catalogue offers fascinating insights into their artistic dialogue. Focusing throughout on their creative exchanges, it highlights their respective contributions to the development of modern art, from the beginning of the twentieth century to the end of the Second World War. Comprising over 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints, the book makes palpable the many intersections between their artistic visions, and investigates their shared interest in subjects such as interiors, still life, landscape, and the nude. Scholarly essays and thematic introductions to their oeuvres provide a wealth of information on the two colleagues and friends gained from their writings and correspondence as well as archival material. Another highlight is a series of iconic photographs taken by Henri Cartier-Bresson, who visited both Matisse and Bonnard at their much-fabled houses in the South of France.

"This stunning book uses 21st-century technology to reveal the original colors of ancient sculpture. When Renaissance artists sought to imitate ancient sculpture, their medium of choice was pure, white marble, but little did they know that the works they emulated were originally painted in dazzling and powerful hues-from red ocher and cinnabar to azurite and malachite. By illustrating painted reconstructions of well-known sculptures in relation to original examples, this volume reveals how ancient artists in Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Aegean, Greece, and Rome brought unexpected and breathtaking color to their artworks. Accompanying these reproductions are watercolors of Greece's landscapes dating from different years, which show how our perception of ancient art has changed over time. Generously illustrated, this book testifies that the study of ancient sculpture is incomplete without an understanding of the many ways that color was employed to bring such art to life"--

Johan Maelwael : Nijmegen, Paris, Dijon : art around 1400
Malouel, Jean, approximately 1365-1415, artist
Amsterdam : Rijksmuseum, 
Johan Maelwael (1365/70-1415), internationally known as Jean Malouel, was one of the most important West European artists of the late Middle Ages. He grew up in Nijmegen as a scion of a family of successful heraldic painters and later became the court painter of the Dukes of Burgundy. This great innovator in painting created his multifaceted oeuvre nearly a century before Hieronymus Bosch. His painting is characterized by elegantly sophisticated figures, a high degree of realism and a bright colour palette with deep shades of blue, red and gold. This publication describes Maelwael's life, his versatile work and his place in history. The paintings of Maelwael, who is rather unknown in the Netherlands, are displayed together with a wealth of unique medieval art treasures, paintings, precious metalwork, sculptures, drawings and manuscripts including richly decorated manuscripts by his legendary cousins, the Limbourg brothers, and lifelike portraits by his contemporary, Claes Sluter.

Space packed : the architecture of Alfred Neumann
Zurich : Park Books, c2017
Alfred Neumann (1900?1968) was a Czech architect whose work was wrought in the context of postwar modernism and the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Today, his influence and impact have been largely forgotten, but, in their time, Neumann?s original designs received praise and elicited controversy in almost equal measure, offering exciting new possibilities to the modernist mainstream.0This book renews attention to this pioneering architect who made a vast contribution to modern architecture and had a lasting impact on Israel?s broader architectural culture. Drawing on Neumann?s writings and close study of both built and unbuilt projects, Rafi Segal discusses the development of Neumann?s architectural theory and methodology and documents his built works from the 1950s and ?60s against the backdrop of contemporary architectural discourse and the demands of the newly created State of Israel. The book also features a complete chronological catalog of Neumann?s buildings and designs, fully illustrated, including many previously unpublished photographs, drawings, and sketches.

Velázquez re-examined : theory, history, poetry, and theatre
edited by Giles Knox and Tanya J. Tiffany

The poet in painting: Góngora's portraits and the politics of the Paragone / Laura R. Bass -- Eggs, water, metal: Velázquez, the Paragone, and the products of pratica / Giles Knox -- Joseph's bloodied coat presented to Jacob: from portrait to history: history at the margins of the human / Fernando Marías -- Velázquez and the philosophers in the Torre de la Parada / Aneta Georgievska-Shine -- Heresy, Judaism, and paganism in the Hall of Realms / Javier Portús.
New Approaches to Velázquez offers fresh insight into one of the major figures in Western art. By bringing together the work of seven prominent scholars working across the disciplines, this collection will analyze the paintings of Diego Velázquez (1599-1660) within the cultural, religious, and intellectual frameworks of seventeenth-century Spain. Art historians such as Fernando Marías, and Javier Portús explore the origins of Velázquez's pivotal place in the history of Spanish art. At the same time, literary historian Laura Bass examines the central role played by Velázquez's academic formation in the imagery and style of his paintings. The approaches highlighted in this book represent a departure from recent studies of Velázquez's career as a courtier, and they instead focus on interpreting the unexplored issues raised by his paintings themselves.
