The Situationist International in Britain : modernism, surrealism, and the avant-garde
Cooper, Sam, 1983- author
London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, [2017]
Introduction -- Surrealism in England, or English Surrealism -- Alexander Trocchi and the Dissolution of the Avant-Garde -- The English Section of the Situationist International -- Long Live King Mob -- British Situationism Today.

"This book tells, for the first time, the story of the Situationist International's influence and afterlives in Britain, where its radical ideas have been rapturously welcomed and fiercely resisted. The Situationist International presented itself as the culmination of the twentieth century avant-garde tradition -- as the true successor of Dada and Surrealism. Its grand ambition was not unfounded. Though it dissolved in 1972, generations of artists and writers, theorists and provocateurs, punks and psychogeographers have continued its effort to confront and contest the 'society of the spectacle.' This book constructs a long cultural history, beginning in the interwar period with the arrival of Surrealism to Britain, moving through the countercultures of the 1950s and 1960s, and finally surveying the directions in which Situationist theory and practice are being taken today. It combines agile historicism with close readings of a vast range of archival and newly excavated materials, including newspaper reports, underground pamphlets, Psychogeographical films, and experimental novels. It brings to light an overlooked but ferociously productive period of British avant-garde practice, and demonstrates how this subterranean activity helps us to understand postwar culture, late modernism, and the complex internationalization of the avant-garde. As popular and academic interest in the Situationists grows, this book offers an important contribution to the international history of the avant-garde and Surrealism. It will prove a valuable resource for researchers and students of English and Comparative Literature, Modernism and the Avant-Gardes, Twentieth Century and Contemporary History, Cultural Studies, Art History, and Political Aesthetics." -- Publisher's description

Bjarne Melgaard
Melgaard, Bjarne, artist
New York, NY : Skira Rizzoli Publications, Inc., 2016
Australian-born Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard started his career in the mid-1990s with neo-expressionistic painting, sculpture, and installation. Organized chaos is one of his main principles in composition and content. His intense way of attacking the canvas paired with a total control of the line where the brush strokes and splashes of paint meet form a base for an explicit narrative. Covering the entirety of Melgaard's career, this book documents the artist's way of capturing the tension of the creative moment, which makes his stylistic role models Edward Munch and Emil Nolde ever present. The variety of dazzling layers in different techniques gives the work a painterly quality that sweeps the viewer into a myriad of colors, forms, and expressions. Liberatory, playful, and unstoppable, Melgaard's art provides an insight into subcultures that exist alongside the world of normality, and often investigates and pushes the boundaries of societal acceptance. The book showcases an artist whose variety and complexity of work have been praised worldwide.

The experience of architecture
Plummer, Henry, 1946- author
London : Thames & Hudson Ltd, 2016
How does the experience of turning a door handle, opening a door from one space to lead into another, affect us? This book aims to understand how these everyday acts are influenced by architectural form, a concept that is vital for all architects to grasp if our buildings are to be anything more than a commercial or aesthetic enterprise. It considers how specific built elements and volumes can sustain or deny our powers of decision. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of our daily interactions with architecture, looking at stairs, floors and paths, moving interior spaces, perception and perspective, transparency and the relationship between a building and its setting. This book is not just for architects and designers engaged in the production of space, but for all those who seek a richer understanding of their place in the built world.

La coulure : histoire(s) de la peinture en mouvement, XIe-XXIe siècles
Cassegrain, Guillaume
Paris : Hazan Editions, ©2015
Il aura fallu attendre l'expressionisme abstrait des peintres américains pour revoir apparaître la coulure dans les images. Cy Twombly, Brice Marden, Morris Louis, en libérant le geste pictural des entraves dictées par les règles du passé, ont donné libre cours, sous des formes à chaque fois diverses et singulières, aux écoulements de peinture. Jackson Pollock en a même fait un motif spécifique avec lequel son style a par la suite été décrit. Le fameux dripping avec lequel il procède à l'invention de ses compositions n'est rien d'autre que ces "écoulements" de peinture industrielle sur la toile disposée à même le sol. Mais auparavant, dans la peinture classique, la coulure, bien que plus discrète, a également joué un rôle de tout premier ordre. Certains peintres de renom (Michel-Ange, Tintoret, Lucas Cranach, Caravage) ont su tirer parti de la force dynamique et expressive de ces coulures de peinture dans quelques-unes de leurs toiles ...

Albert Besnard (1849-1934) : modernités Belle Époque
Besnard, Paul Albert, 1849-1934, artist
Paris : Petit Palais-Musée des beaux-arts de la Ville de Paris, [2016]
"Gloire de la peinture française de la Belle Époque, Albert Besnard (1849-1934) a conquis tous les honneurs durant sa longue carrière à force de travail et de créativité. Les grands chantiers parisiens lui offrent la possibilité de renouveler l'art du décor monumental, des murs de l'École de Pharmacie et de la Sorbonne aux plafonds de l'Hôtel de Ville, du Petit Palais et de la Comédie-Française. Le recours à des thèmes modernes, le symbolisme de son langage et la flamboyance de sa palette imposent sa puissante originalité. Besnard est aussi le peintre de la beauté féminine, qu'il s'agisse de portraits intimes au pastel, de nus sensuels ou d'effigies mondaines dont il est un auteur recherché. Voyageant en Algérie et aux Indes, il livre également une vision personnelle d'un Orient âpre et envoûtant, d'une brûlante féerie. Un Besnard plus secret se révèle enfin avec sa pratique de la gravure, qui lui permet d'aborder des sujets plus graves, les émotions existentielles de l'homme face à la mort, et montrer ainsi toute la complexité de sa personnalité et de son art."--Page 4 of cover.

Artist and empire : facing Britain's imperial past
edited by Alison Smith, David Blayney Brown and Carol Jacobi ; with contributions from Gus Casely-Hayford, Annie E. Coombes, Caroline Corbeau-Parsons, Paul Gilroy, Nicholas Thomas and Sean Willcock
London : Tate Publishing, 2015
"Over the past thirty years, our ideas about the cultures of Empire have been transformed. Contemporary reflections on Empire by writers and artists are widely published and displayed, and museums have witnessed a growing number of exhibitions devoted to aspects of the rich and varied visual culture that emerged in places under British governance, from the Americas to India and Australasia. And yet, since the vast Imperial exhibitions of the early twentieth-century there has been no wide-ranging presentation of the objects made across the British Empire. This publication, which accompanies a major Tate Britain exhibition, fills that gap. Through broad groupings within thematic chapters -- Mapping, Collecting, History, Portraiture, Cultural Exchange and the Return of Empire -- leading scholars focus on how particular objects tell the history of life under British rule. Paintings by well-known artists such as John Singer Sargent and Sidney Nolan are illustrated alongside Benin bronze heads and Mughal miniatures in a survey that ranges from sixteenth century colonialism through to the projection of Britain's imperial might in the late nineteenth century to its decline in the post-war era. Exploring how artists have represented and critiqued the diverse places, people and events that make up the legacy of Empire, our expert authors have created a vital book on a subject of broad contemporary interest." -- Publisher's description

Weise, gelehrt und erfahren : Philibert Delorme und die gesellschaftliche Verantwortung des Architekten in der französischen Renaissance
Naehrig, Niklas
Zürich : Gta Verlag, c2016
Kein anderer Architekt hat das Baugeschehen im Frankreich des 16. Jahrhunderts so sehr geprägt wie Philibert Delorme (um 1514-1570). Von Henri II an den französischen Hof geholt, bestimmte er als oberster Baubeamter das Erscheinungsbild der Monarchie nicht nur im Hinblick auf ihre Repräsentationsbauten. Nach Henris Tod wandte er sich dem Schreiben zu, ja er definierte das Fachbuch der Architektur neu und etablierte den Typus eines politischen Architekten, der seine Tätigkeit konsequent auf das Gemeinwohl ausrichtet. 00Diesen Architekten, der sich als genialer Künstler und gleichermassen als verantwortliches Mitglied einer kulturellen wie politischen Elite versteht, charakterisierte Delorme im Premier Tome (erschienen 1567) mit den Worten sage, docte & expert als 'weise, gelehrt und erfahren'. Philibert Delorme beschreibt einen Architekten, der in der Gegenwart einen Standpunkt bezieht und Architektur als Abbild der Verhältnisse sieht - und gelegentlich auch als Wunschbild solcher, die er sich erhofft.

Drei Münchner Vorlesungen Heinrich Wölfflins : Die architektonischen Stilbildungen vom Mittelalter bis zur Neuzeit ; Grundbegriffe der Kunstgeschichte ; Geschichte der deutschen Kunst im 19. Jahrhundert
Wölfflin, Heinrich, 1864-1945, author
Passau : Dietmar Klinger Verlag, 2016
Rückblickend von seiner letzten beruflichen Station ? dem Lehrstuhl in Zürich ? erschienen Heinrich Wölfflin die Jahre an den deutschen Hochschulen als goldene Jahre: "Es hat zu meiner Zeit, in Berlin und München, Jahre gegeben, da man die besten Leute der Nation zu seinen Füssen und vor seinen Augen hatte. So etwas zwingt, das Beste zu geben." In diesem Buch sind erstmals die Vorlesungsmitschriften dreier Münchner Vorlesungen Wölfflins veröffentlicht, darunter seine berühmteste: Die Grundbegriffe der Kunstgeschichte, "eine Vorlesung", so Wölfflins Ankündigung, "wie ich sie noch nie gehalten habe und nie mehr halten werde". Mit dieser Vorlesung des Wintersemesters 1914 /15 bereitete er die Buchpublikation der Grundbegriffe vor und stellte sich zugleich der aktuellen Situation des ersten Weltkriegsjahres. Daneben enthält dieser Band Wölfflins weitgefassten Überblick über die mittelalterliche und neuzeitliche Architekturgeschichte (Wintersemester 1913 /14) sowie Die Geschichte der deutschen Kunst im 19. Jahrhundert (Sommersemester 1916). Auch dies eine Kriegsvorlesung. Von der hohen Wertschätzung, die Wölfflin der Kunst Frankreichs entgegenbrachte, rückte er dennoch nicht ab. 0Exhibition: Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte München, Germany (28.10.2015-26.02.2016).

Art and the brain : plasticity, embodiment, and the unclosed circle
Ione, Amy, author
Boston : Brill Rodopi, [2016]
In her new book 'Art and the Brain: Plasticity, Embodiment and the Unclosed Circle', Amy Ione offers a profound assessment of our ever-evolving view of the biological brain as it pertains to embodied human experience. She deftly takes the reader from Deep History into our current worldview by surveying the range of nascent responses to perception, thoughts and feelings that have bred paradigmatic changes and led to contemporary research modalities. Interweaving carefully chosen illustrations with the emerging ideas of brain function that define various time periods reinforces a multidisciplinary framework connecting neurological research, theories of mind, art investigations, and intergenerational cultural practices. The book will serve as a foundation for future investigations of neuroscience, art, and the humanities.

Antoine-Marie Chenavard : architecte lyonnais (1787-1883)
Dufieux, Philippe, author
Rennes : Presses Universitaires De Rennes, 2016
Cette monographie constitue la première étude consacrée au plus grand architecte lyonnais du XIXe siècle et dévoile une œuvre d'une fécondité insoupçonnée, servie par une iconographique demeurée à ce jour complètement inédite. Antoine-Marie Chenavard (1787-1883) compte pour l'une des figures les plus originales de l'architecture française du XIXe siècle. Œuvrant entre néo-classicisme et gothique troubadour, il signe de nombreux édifices publics dans la région lyonnaise. Mais c'est en matière de restauration des monuments médiévaux que l'architecte se distingue particulièrement au cours de sa longue carrière.

Rembrandts olifant : in het spoor van Hansken
Roscam Abbing, Michiel, author
Amsterdam : Leporello Uitgevers, 2016
"Rembrandts olifant - in het spoor van Hansken' is het verhaal van de beroemdste olifant van de 17e eeuw. Met haar begeleider Cornelis van Groenevelt trok ze jarenlang door Europa, overal haar kunsten vertonen. Ze kon een geweer afschieten, hanteerde een degen en wist dieven aan te wijzen. Hansken is te zien op reclameplaten, tegeltjes en op tekeningen van Rembrandt en andere kunstenaars. Dit boek is een vervolg op 'Rembrandt olifant - het verhaal van Hansken' (2006). Michiel Roscam Abbing reconstrueert op basis van tientallen nieuwe bronnen minutieus de route die Hansken heeft afgelegd. Geen dier brengt de 17de eeuw zo dichtbij als Hansken, dankzij de vele verrassende sporen die zij heeft achtergelaten. Haar skelet is bewaard gebleven in Florence, de stad waar ze in 1655 overleed."--Back cover.

The result, a Ludion publication, is an impressive reference work in two volumes and with almost 3,000 pages. The new edition includes more than 35,000 painters, sculptors, graphic artists, photographers and ceramists. The publication, also known as "The Piron", is an inexhaustible source of information and is used every day by professionals and art lovers. Over the years the book has become an essential tool for auction houses, galleries, art dealers, museums, libraries and documentation centres.

Where's B**ksy?
Tàpies, Xavier A., author
Berkeley, CA : Gingko Press, Inc., 2016
'Where's Banksy?' fully captures the drama of this illustrious artist's exploits on the world stage with clever chronologically-arranged maps. The only survey that looks at Banksy's entire street art career, from his earliest works in 2002 through Dismaland and to the present, the book details his most significant works one piece at a time, with photos and in-depth analysis of the history of each work as well as its often-deeper meaning. A modern day Robin Hood, Banksy's public persona has grown to mythic proportions, making his actual identity irrelevant. And yet, he can be found in his art - work that is recognizable and accessible, stylized social commentary for the masses. This stunning new book is the ultimate introduction to the work of this brilliant artist and social pioneer.

Alberto Giacometti: Beyond bronze : masterworks in plaster and other materials
Büttner, Philippe, editor
Zürich : Scheidegger und Spiess 2016
Fifty years on from the death of Alberto Giacometti (1901?1966), the major temporary exhibition ?Alberto Giacometti ? Beyond Bronze. Masterworks in Plaster and Other Materials? illuminates the fundamental aspects of this world-famous Swiss artist?s oeuvre and technique. At the heart of the presentation are 75 precious original plasters from the artist?s estate, which came to the Kunsthaus in 2006 as the result of a gift by Bruno and Odette Giacometti to the Alberto Giacometti Foundation. They have been examined by restorers from the Kunsthaus and prepared for this exhibition as part of a multi-year research project. 0For Alberto Giacometti, plaster was of great importance as a material ? far more than just an intermediate stage between clay model and bronze cast. It allowed him to paint or rework his objects in a wide variety of ways. Indeed, a significant number of his sculptures exist only in a plaster version. 0Through numerous masterpieces from every stage of his career, the exhibition focuses on Giacometti?s artistic approach to the material nature of his chosen media, affording an insight into the creative process of one of the century?s greatest artists. While the precious and fragile plasters are the centre of the display, the presentation also includes many works in other materials, such as marble, wood and bronze. 0The exhibition complements the holdings of the Kunsthaus with important loans from other collections, notably the non-public Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti in Paris, which are being shown for the first time on this scale in Switzerland. 0Exhibition: Kunsthaus Zürich, Zwitserland, "28.10. 2016 - 15.01.2017" 00.

De vroege Van Gogh 1880-1885 = The early Van Gogh 1880-1885
Auke van der Woud
Otterlo : Kröller-Müller Museum, [2016]
When Vincent van Gogh decided to become an artist and taught himself how to draw and paint, he focused his attention on the people who had to work hard for their living, in humble workshops and on farmlands in all weathers. With his depictions?of the people, for the people?, Vincent strove to sincerely express his compassion for their way of life. Or, as he put it in a letter to his brother Theo:?I say it again? work against indifference? perseverance isn?t easy? but things that are easy mean little?. Over 120 works from the period 1880-1885 from the museum?s extensive Van Gogh collection are on display. The emphasis is on Van Gogh?s drawings. These in particular clearly show how he struggled to master the technique and to depict volume and movement in his figures. Moreover, he sought to depict?life? itself and if necessary to draw?inaccuracies? that were?truer? than the?literal truth?. Exhibition: Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, The Netherlands (24.09.2016 -09.04.2017).

Un Suédois à Paris au XVIIIe siècle : la collection Tessin
sous la direction de Guillaume Faroult, Xavier Salmon et Juliette Trey
Paris : Louvre éditions, [2016]
"Le comte Carl Gustaf Tessin assuma les fonctions d'ambassadeur de Suède à Paris de 1739 à 1742. Missionné par le roi Fredrik je pour défendre à Versailles les intérêts de sou pays, et peut-être pour engager des artistes en vue de la décoration du Palais royal de Stockholm, il ne manqua pas de participer aux temps forts de la scène artistique parisienne. Durant ces trois années, grâce à sa familiarité avec le marché de l'art mais aussi en qualité de conseiller artistique Suède, il se livra à ce qu'il nommait sa "tableaumanie", collectionnant avec passion peintures et dessins, d'abord pour le compte du roi puis très vite pour son compte personnel, fréquentant de nombreux artistes, tels François Boucher ou Chardin, se liant d'amitié avec l'"amateur" Pierre Jean Mariette et achetant plus de deux mille dessins à l'exceptionnelle vente Crozat de 1741. À son retour en Suède, criblé de dettes, il fut contraint de vendre une partie de sa collection de peintures et de dessins, dont la majeure partie est aujourd'hui conservée au Nationalmuseum de Stockholm. Bien plus qu'un florilège de chefs-d'oeuvre, cet ouvrage rend un hommage au plus extraordinaire collectionneur suédois, et donne par là même une image du marché de l'art et du goût parisien au milieu du XVIIIe siècle."--Page 4 of cover.

"Les terres de langues germaniques ont compté parmi les foyers de création du baroque et du rococo les plus fertiles. Les plus grands maîtres allemands et autrichiens y travaillèrent sur de prestigieux chantiers commandités par le pouvoir tant laïc que religieux. Cité millénaire, Salzbourg a été l'un de ces chantiers les plus actifs. Ses princes-archevêques la transformèrent, métamorphosant la cité médiévale en une ville baroque grandiose, dont l'éclat rivalisa avec celui des plus belles villes européennes jusqu'à son déclin en 1803. Patrie de la musique, qui enfanta Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart en 1756, elle fut aussi celle de l'architecture, de la peinture et de la sculpture, au point d'être souvent considérée comme la Rome du Nord. Cet ouvrage réunit une centaine d'oeuvres, dessins, peintures et sculptures provenant des musées et des collections religieuses qui ont été constitués dès cette époque à Salzbourg.

Ways of pointillism : Seurat, Signac, Van Gogh
edited by Heinz Widauer ; with a preface by Klaus Albrecht Schröder and Lisette Pelsers, and essays by Michael Baumgartner and 5 others ; translations from German: Brigitte Willinger, Gerard A. Goodrow ; translations from French: David Radzinowicz
Munich : Hirmer Verlag, [2016]
With their pioneering method using dots, the artists of Pointillism no longer directed their gaze only towards the imitation of reality. In their paintings between 1886 and 1930 their dots, colour and light assumed an independent existence to create masterpieces of unprecedented brightness and colour diversity. 0The works by the inventors of this technique, Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, marked the beginning of this exuberant outburst of colour. Works by Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Carlo Carrá, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Piet Mondrian and Paul Klee demonstrate how artists made a study of Pointillism during the 20th century. Vincent van Gogh contributed to the way that modernist painters abandoned Pointillism. More than 100 selected works, including paintings, watercolours and drawings, illuminate the dawn of a new era which this art movement was responsible for bringing about: the beginning of modern painting.

From 12 November, the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem presents 80 works by Dutch masters from one of the finest collections in the world, that of the Szépmüvészeti Múzeum in Budapest. Works by artists from Haarlem including Willem Buytewech, Willem Claesz Heda, Pieter Saenredam and Jacob van Ruisdael are shown alongside works by famous Dutch and Flemish painters such as Hendrick Avercamp, Jan Lievens and Anthonie van Dyck. Moreover, on the occasion of the 350th year of Frans Hals's death in 2016, two of his beautiful portraits that are now in Budapest are reunited with his paintings at the Frans Hals Museum. The publication presents these gems from the Szépmüvészeti Múzeum through large colour images and informative texts about genres, techniques and the collection as a whole, thus throwing new light on the Haarlem pieces and at the same time painting a kaleidoscopic picture of the art of this period.

The art of law : three centuries of justice depicted
editorial team, Stefan Huygebaert ... et al. ; texts by Matthias Desmet ... et al.
Tielt : Uitg. Lannoo N.V., c2016
During the late-medieval period, law courts frequently commissioned paintings to grace their Aldermen chambers. Among the favourite themes were the so-called exempla iustitiae, examples of 'good' and 'bad' justice, derived from Biblical, historical and legendary tales. It was not until the Renaissance that the well-known image of Lady Justice took shape, recognised by her scales, sword and blindfold.0In this book, depictions of the Last Judgement and other justice scenes, as well as allegories and visualisations of (sometimes gruesome) torture and execution practices are placed within an art-historical and legal-historical context. The authors' approaches to the highly popular theme of law and justice will appeal to both experts and novices with the subjects. For the exhibition, more than 120 works from Belgian and international collections, including private collections, are brought together, with masterpieces from Bruges forming the core of the exhibition.00Exhibition: Groeningemuseum, Bruges, Belgium (28.10.2016-05.02.2017).

Nymph : motif, phantom, affect. Part II, Aby Warburg's (1866-1929) butterflies as art historical paradigms
Baert, Barbara, author
Leuven : Peeters, 2016
"This essay, a meditation on the butterfly and its resonance in art history, is organized in three parts. I begin with Aby Warburg's fascination with moths and butterflies as documented by (1) his letters to Andre Jolles (e.g. the letter from 1900 known as 'But such high-flown movements are not for me'), (2) the Kreuzlingen pathological report and archives by Ludwig Binswanger (1881-1966) preserved in Tubingen, and (3) the 'Ninfa fiorentina' file in the Warburg Institute. As 'Seelentierchen' - soul animals, 'psyche' - butterflies are archetypically connected to deep cultural affects regarding the soul, resurrection and immortality. Part 2 of the paper considers the butterfly as paradigm for the visual medium and the oculocentric paradigms in art history. Indeed, the butterfly has a specific visual (and sensory) impact on humankind with its flashy, quick, vibrant and hypnotic wings, its medusian eyes and its capability to camouflage itself (cf. 'Sciences diagonales' by Roger Caillois (1913-1978)). Hypnosis, Medusa and camouflage are three important paradigms with which to consider the essence of the image as a dis/appearing, enchanting, and deceiving medium. In Part 3, the three paradigms become the basis for new reflections about art history (and the history of art history) as a study of the butterfly, in short, as 'lepidopterology'."--Page 4 of cover.

Civic aesthetics : militarism, Israeli art, and visual culture
Roei, Noa, author
London : Bloomsbury Academic, 2017
Exploring the politics of the image in the context of Israeli militarized visual culture, Civic Aesthetics examines both the omnipresence of militarism in Israeli culture and society and the way in which this omnipresence is articulated, enhanced, and contested within local contemporary visual art. Looking at a range of contemporary artworks through the lens of "civilian militarism", Roei employs the theory of various fields, including memory studies, gender studies, landscape theory, and aesthetics, to explore the potential of visual art to communicate military excesses to its viewers. This study builds on the specific sociological concerns of the chosen cases to discuss the complexities of visuality, the visible and non-visible, arguing for art's capacity to expose the scopic regimes that construct their visibility. Images and artworks are often read either out of context, on purely aesthetic or art-historical ground, or as cultural artefacts whose aesthetics play a minor role in their significance. This book breaks with both traditions as it approaches all art, both high and popular art, as part of the surrounding visual culture in which it is created and presented. This approach allows a new theory of the image to come forth, where the relation between the political and the aesthetic is one of exchange, rather than exclusion.

Cathédrales de Provence
sous la direction de Yann Codou et Thierry Pécout ; préface de Mgr Georges Pontier
Paris : Place des victoires, [2015]
Depuis la Côte d’Azur jusqu’au Rhône, des Alpes à la Méditerranée, la Provence n’est guère perçue comme terre de cathédrales dans l’imaginaire collectif. Et pourtant, cette région connut les premières traces de communautés chrétiennes organisées des Gaules et la présence des papes à Avignon. Près d’une trentaine de cathédrales, parfois éphémères, y virent le jour au fil des siècles. La plupart portent l’empreinte de l’époque médiévale, inspirée tant par le classicisme romain antique que par l'austérité monastique. Beaucoup aussi furent marquées par la reconquête catholique des Temps modernes dont le baroque exprime l’étourdissant programme. Enfin, les dernières d’entre elles, édifiées au XIXe siècle, sont parmi les plus récentes de France et tentent par leurs inspirations variées de rendre hommage à leurs prestigieuses devancières.0Trente-trois spécialistes – historiens, historiens de l’art, archéologues – et neuf évêques nous invitent à une découverte exceptionnelle, somptueusement illustrée.0.

Francis Bacon : Unsichtbare Räume = invisible rooms
Bacon, Francis, 1909-1992
Munich : Prestel, c2016
This beautifully illustrated book on the work of Francis Bacon, one of the 20th century's greatest painters, takes an in-depth look at his trademark motif of figures imprisoned within ghostly frames. Arguably one of the most influential and original painters of the 20th century, Francis Bacon painted haunting portraits that employed themes of crucifixion, torment, and isolation. Incorporating the insights of 'The Logic of Sensation', French philosopher Gilles Deleuze's seminal criticism of Bacon's work, this volume highlights Bacon's approach to space as one of the defining forces of his work. By organizing the spatial and dramatic structure of his compositions with barely visible cubic or elliptical cages, his figures become trapped in a kind of invisible room. This sense of confinement creates a direct, unsettling impression on the viewer, and further emphasizes the painter's dark vision. This book features stunning reproductions of 40 large-scale paintings, including 'Study for a Portrait' (1952), 'Chimpanzee' (1955), 'Three Studies of the Male Back' (1970), and 'Sand Dune' (1983) as well as a selection of rarely exhibited works on paper. This book also contains a series of essays that explore the range of variation in Bacon's use of isolating constructions over a period of nearly 50 years, as well as the nature of his painting technique and compositions.

Art and its responses to changes in society
edited by Ines Unetič, Martin Germ, Martina Malešič, Asta Vrečko and Miha Zor
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, [2016]
This book brings together studies of young researchers dealing with the topics of decline, transformation, and rebirth from various points of view, characteristic of several different fields of the humanities and social sciences, in order to yield new insights into the analyzed subjects. The topics discussed here are diverse: on the one hand, several chapters deal with the metamorphosis of particular pictorial or architectural motifs and concepts, while on the other, studies are included that are dedicated to the analysis of the opera of individual artists, to various periods in architecture and landscape architecture, and to national and state commissions in art, as well as representations of WW2 atrocities in Yugoslavia and attempts to artistically reaffirm Christian symbolism after the end of socialism. As such, the book entails diverse scientific perceptions of art and society, from antiquity to modernity, from architecture to moving picture, from the USA to Yugoslavia, and from research on an object to observations on a concept.

"The book brings together texts that explore the problematic relationship between some artistic expressions such as performance, video installations, music, and theatre, and that omnipresent phenomenon that we have called violence in Colombia. And all this in order to raise from the perspective of Colombian artists and works in particular the question about the possibilities that art has for representing memory, trauma and grief."--Verso Cover.

Enrico Baj : l'invasione degli ultracorpi = l'invasion des ultracorps
Baj, Enrico, 1924-2003, artist
Cinisello Balsamo, Milano : Silvana editoriale, [2016]
Le thème de l?ultra-corps a peuplé l?art d?Enrico Baj (Milan, 1924 - 2003) pendant plus de trente ans, à partir de 1951. En parcourant les lignes de la riche production du maître milanais, le volume reconstruit les transformations et les changements de cette "invention figurative" particulière. L?ultra-corps est une créature anthropoïde qui a acquis une âme et un corps dans la pensée de Baj, non seulement comme motif iconographique d?une ironie amère et d?un humour noir, mais aussi comme métaphore de craintes profondes, d?une part, liées au risque contingent d?une guerre nucléaire, d?autre part, marquées par un spectre universel plus caché. 0C?est une série de peintures et de collages qui illustrent le thème de l?ultra-corps, ainsi que quelques exemplaires des séries des "meubles" et des "miroirs", des "meccanos", des "généraux"" et des "modifications" ainsi que trente petits personnages "en meccano" qui constituent le Théâtre d?Ubu (1985) et l?installation monumentale de l?"Apocalypse" (1978-1983). 0Grâce à une riche anthologie de textes, le volume documente aussi l?activité de Baj en tant que théoricien, journaliste et écrivain qui a su entretenir un dialogue fécond avec les principaux intellectuels et artistes du XXe siècle, dont André Breton, Arturo Schwarz, Italo Calvino, Dino Buzzati, Umberto Eco, Jean Baudrillard, Octavio Paz, Edoardo Sanguineti, pour ne citer que quelques-uns. 0Exhibition: Musée Archéologique Régional, Aoste, Italy (11.06.-09.10.2016).

Lawrence Alma-Tadema : at home in Antiquity
edited for the Fries Museum by Elizabeth Prettejohn & Peter Trippi ; introductions by Elizabeth Prettejohn ; essays by Jan Dirk Baetens, Ivo Blom, Petra ten-Doesschate Chu, Markus Fellinger, Charlotte Gere, Elizabeth Prettejohn, Daniel Robbins, Marlies Stoter, Peter Trippi ; highlights by Eline van den Berg, Carolyn Epps Dixon, Alistair Grant, Anne Helmreich, Ian Jenkins, Stephanie Moser, Wendy Sijnesael, Robert Verhoogt
New York : Prestel, [2016]
This re-evaluation of the Dutch- born painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema traces his personal and artistic journey towards international fame and success in London and investigates how this exceptionally creative artist used his own houses and studios as laboratories to produce vivid paintings of life in ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Lawrence Alma-Tadema's paintings were immensely popular among his contemporaries, and have since enchanted a wide audience through the medium of cinema. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the great epic films of antiquity from Italian silent classics and Cecil B. DeMille to Ridley Scott s Gladiator will instantly recognize their origins in sets and costumes Alma-Tadema invented. Accompanied by glowing reproductions of the artist's rich and detailed works, this book boldly re-assesses Alma-Tadema's art through the idea of home: from his admiration for the interiors depicted in early Dutch paintings through his fascination with Pompeian ruins, to his creation of large studio houses that were artworks in their own right.

Doug Aitken : Electric earth
organized by Philippe Vergne ; essays by Joseph Grima, Anna Katz, Norman M. Klein, Glenn D. Lowry, Philippe Vergne
New York : DelMonico Books-Prestel, 2016
You are here and so am I / Philippe Vergne -- Doug Aitken, mapmaker / Anna Katz -- From Sleepwalkers to Station to station : inverting the museum / Glenn D. Lowry -- An architecture for the now / Joseph Grima -- A granular history of space : Doug Aitken / Norman M. Klein.

Accompanying the artist's first full-scale survey exhibition, this generously illustrated book explores Doug Aitken's work across mediums, disciplines, and themes. From photography to architecture, and from video to spoken word, Doug Aitken has delved into a variety of art forms to create a provocative body of work. This volume surveys the full scope and depth of Aitken's work: sound pieces, sculpture, architectural experiments, land art and happenings, which embrace a collaborative spirit across disciplines and beyond walls, to re-imagine the nature of what a work of art can be. Interspersed with hundreds of color illustrations, the book's essays examine the plethora of ideas the artist tackles from environmental decay to the end of linear time and explain how and why Aitken challenges many artistic barriers.

'Colour, Art and Empire' explores the entanglements of visual culture, enchanted technologies, waste, revolution, resistance and otherness. The materiality of colour offers a critical and timely force-field for approaching afresh debates on colonialism. Located at thresholds of nomenclature, imitation, mimesis and affect, this book analyses the formation of colour and politics as qualitative overspill.

Rashid Johnson : within our gates
Johnson, Rashid, 1977- interviewee
Moscow, Russia : Garage Museum Of Contemporary Art, [2016]
Since 2001, Rashid Johnson (born 1977) has risen to international attention with his powerfully visual statements on contemporary culture. Working across painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video and performance, the artist has charted a trajectory that offers fresh readings of art history, social history, psychology and literature. Rashid Johnson: New Work follows the making of the artist's largest work to date: an immersive, living eco-system where fact, fiction, history and mythology converge. Described by the artist as a"brain" that prioritizes poetic rather than logical reason, the work offers unexpected associations between objects, video and sound, that have become untethered from their cultural roots, to provide nuanced readings on clichés of class, nation and race. The first book to follow the development of Johnson's sculptural and installation works, Rashid Johnson: New Work includes an interview with the artist by Kate Fowle and an extensive essay, also by Fowle, which investigates Johnson's influences and references. The New Work series examines in depth the making of a large-scale work, focusing on methods of research and production to provide new perspectives on the practice of a mid-career or established artist whose work resonates across cultures.

Zürich : Swiss National Museum, [2016]
The Renaissance experienced some of the most important advances in human history: the invention of the printing press using movable letters, the discovery of an unknown continent, and the formulation of a new view of the earth. It was a time when people sought to solve the riddles of nature, experimented with alchemy, set out to develop a new medical science, conceived a new vision of humankind, and created beauty in the form of pictures and architecture, sculpture and literature. All these discoveries and creations would have been unimaginable without cultural exchange. The Renaissance was an era of dialogue and new horizons in thinking over great distances and time.

"Jean Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806) was a virtuoso draftsman whose works on paper count among the significant achievements of his time. This book focuses on the role of drawing in Fragonard's creative process and provides a modern reevaluation of his graphic work, while showcasing his mastery and experimentation with drawing in a range of media. Unlike many old master painters, who used drawings primarily as preparatory tools, Fragonard explored their potential as works of art in their own right. The 100 works featured in this publication include well-loved masterpieces, new discoveries, and works that have been long out of the public eye, illuminating the career of a ceaselessly inventive artist whose draftsmanship was at the core of his remarkable body of work." -- Publisher's description

Maiolica : Italian Renaissance ceramics in the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Wilson, Timothy, 1950- author
New York, New York : The Metropolitan Museum of Art, [2016]
Introduction / Timothy Wilson -- Italian Maiolica painting: composing for context / Luke Syson -- Collecting Italian Renaissance ceramics at the Metropolitan Museum of Art / Timothy Wilson -- Catalogue / Timothy Wilson : Medieval and early Renaissance, ca. 1250-1480 ; First flourishing, ca. 1480-1520 ; Istoriato and lusterware, ca. 1520-1570 ; New forms and ambitions, ca. 1550-1600 ; Aftermath and diaspora, ca. 1600-1700.

"The tin-glazed earthenware known as maiolica reveals much about the culture and spirit of Renaissance Italy. Spectacularly colorful, sometimes whimsical or frankly bawdy, these magnificent objects were generally made for use rather than decoration and present a fascinating glimpse into the realities of daily life. This volume features 135 masterpieces that reflect more than 400 years of exquisite artistry, from early pieces from Pesaro to everyday objects such as albarelli (pharmacy jars), bella donna plates, and humorous genre scenes. Luke Syson provides a wide-ranging introduction and Timothy Wilson, widely considered the foremost scholar in the field, provides an overview of the history and technique of maiolica in The Met collection. As the latest volume in The Met's series of decorative arts highlights, Maiolica is an invaluable resource for scholars and collectors as well as an absorbing general introduction to a multifaceted subject." -- Publisher's description

Tula Telfair : invented landscapes
Telfair, Tula, 1961- artist
New York : Abrams, 2016
Tula Telfair's hyper-realistic landscape paintings are at once awe-inspiring and extremely personal. Although vividly detailed, the scenes she depicts are not found in nature; they are conjured from memory and imagination. Informed by her experiences growing up on four continents, Telfair produces fantastical visions with delicate brush strokes and a breathtaking mastery of color and light. Suggestive of waterfalls in Africa, deserts of the American Southwest, and ice floes in Antarctica, Telfair's art draws attention to the power and fragility of nature. Essays by Henry Adams and Michael S. Roth explore the technical and aesthetic aspects of Telfair's work, her personal history, and the interplay between realism and invention.

Grandma Moses : American modern
Moses, Grandma, 1860-1961, artist
Bennington, VT : Bennington Museum, 2016
A long-overdue reexamination of beloved American artist Grandma Moses, restoring her rightful place within the canon of mid-century American Art. One of the best-known artists of her time, and a true American legend, Anna Mary Robertson "Grandma" Moses (1860 1961) was often marginalized as a latter-day "folk" painter or a phenomenon of popular media. Accompanying a traveling exhibition, this new book looks closely at the paintings themselves and the artist's compelling biography to reassert her role in the development of a culture of modernist art at mid-century. Presenting fresh research, several scholars examine Moses s name, public persona, painted world, and wildly popular place in American pop culture; address the myth of the self-taught artist; and contextualize her work alongside such contemporaries as Horace Pippin, Elie Nadelman, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, and Morris Hirshfield.

The art and archaeology of ancient Greece
Barringer, Judith M., 1959- author
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2014
The bronze age and early iron age in Greece -- The geometric period (c. 900-700 B.C.) and the seventh century B.C. -- The archaic Mediterranean -- The classical period: the fifth century B.C -- The late classical period and Alexander, c. 400-323 B.C. -- The legacy of Alexander: the Hellenistic world -- Roman conquest and the conquest of Rome.

Arranged chronologically from the Bronze and Iron Ages through the Geometric, Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, and concluding with Greece under the Roman Empire, it focuses on Greek art but also incorporates Near Eastern, Etruscan, and Roman objects. The author examines a variety of media, analyzing marble and bronze sculpture, public architecture, and vase painting, as well as coins, domestic architecture, mosaics, terracotta figurines and reliefs, jewelry, armor, and wall painting. This book adopts an approach that considers objects and monuments within their cultural contexts.

Art in architecture : building Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
authors, Linda DeBerry, Robin Groesbeck, Dylan Turk ; editor, Linda DeBerry
Bentonville, AR : In association with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, 2016
Nestled in a natural ravine in the Ozark hills, and designed by internationally renowned architect Moshe Safdie, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas is an architectural masterpiece. Featuring arched copper roofs and glass-walled bridges over ponds created from the inflow of a natural stream, the museum complements the distinctive landscape of northwest Arkansas. With the addition of a stunning collection of American art masterworks, and extensive grounds comprising 120 acres of native hardwood forest, Crystal Bridges seamlessly blends art, architecture, and nature to create a visitor experience unlike any other. This book tells the story of the creation of Crystal Bridges: from concept and an early napkin sketch to the engineering feats required to construct an art museum of international stature in the path of a natural waterway. Featuring new colour photography of the museum's striking architecture paired with quotes from Moshe Safdie, Art in Architecture showcases a fabulous new museum.

Nun ist Tuttle erneut präsent mit einer Ausstellung, die im Dialog mit den gleichzeitig gezeigten Werken von Hans Arp steht. Von äusserer Verwandtschaft der Œuvres der beiden Künstler zu sprechen, wäre nicht angebracht. Die Berührung verläuft auf einer anderen Ebene: Tuttle interessiert der Gedanke, dass Arp nicht nur Bildhauer, sondern auch Dichter war und dass in seinem Werk Sprache und Skulptur miteinander verbunden sind, ein Thema, an dem er ebenfalls arbeitet. Arps Skulptur steht, wie Tuttle sagt, auf dem Sockel der Sprache. 00Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Switzerland (27.02.-24.06.2016).

photographs by Wolfgang Volz ; picture commentary by Jonathan Henery and Wolfgang Volz ; edited by Simone Philippi ; Italian translation by Monica Pesetti
Köln : Taschen, c2016
The Floating Piers" is Christo and Jeanne-Claude's first large scale project since they realized "The Gates" in 2005 and draws upon their established history of projects in Italy, including "Wrapped Fountain" and "Wrapped Medieval Tower" in Spoleto, 1968; "Wrapped Monuments" in Milan, 1970; and "The Wall - Wrapped Roman Wall" in Rome, 1973-4. As with all of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's projects, "The Floating Piers" is funded entirely through the sale of Christo's original works of art. After the 16-day exhibition, all components have been removed and recycled.This book presents rich photographic coverage of "The Floating Piers" alongside sketches, models, documents and designs, revealing the process behind this waterborne work of art. Incorporating everything from approval procedures to the manufacture of fabric and anchoring elements, it testifies not only to Christo and Jeanne-Claude's unique creative imagination but also to the immense technical, bureaucratic, and logistical feats that allowed the concept to take float. The book was published after the exhibition ended and includes photographs of the project. Exhibition: Lake Iseo , Italy (18.06.-03.07.2016).

"Alexander Girard (1907--1993) was one of the most important modern textile artists and interior designers of the twentieth century. He worked closely with designers such as Charles Eames and George Nelson and combined Pop Art and Folk Art influences to create a colourfully opulent aesthetic language, whose impact continues to be felt today. The richly illustrated catalogue draws on the vast holdings in Alexander Girard's private estate, which were exhaustively investigated for the first time at the Vitra Design Museum. The book presents the entire oeuvre of the multitalented Italian-American designer in all its facets while offering the first scholarly critical examination of his work. Six essays address Girard's textile creations and graphic design for the furniture manufacturer Herman Miller, important interior design projects such as the Irwin Miller House in Columbus, Indiana (1953) and the restaurant La Fonda del Sol in New York (1960), his activities as a pioneering exhibition organizer and curator, his roots in Italy and his passion for folk art, which resulted in a collection of more than 100,000 objects and served as one of the most important sources of inspiration for his own work. In addition to extensive portfolios with never-before-shown archive material, the publication also provides the first comprehensive biography and a complete list of works"--Provided by publisher.

Fra Angelico : liturgie et mémoire
Gerbron, Cyril
Turnhout : Brepols, 2016
"On admet maintenant que les oeuvres de Fra Angelico ne sont pas des images pieuses et un peu mièvres, les reflets d'une spiritualité tendant vers l'ascétisme et le sublime comme le voulait la tradition héritée de Vasari. Cet ouvrage montre qu'elles ne sont pas non plus des oeuvres "modernes" où s'invente le naturalisme de la Renaissance comme le veut l'historiographie récente. Laissant de cette les analyses stylistiques hâtives, l'auteur se concentre sur un groupe de dix oeuvres, dévoilant patiemment leur richesse exégétique et théologique, montrant comment elles étaient activées par leurs destinataires, c'est-à-dire le plus souvent les frères dominicains et l'officiant, à quel type de méditation elles invitaient, quelles prières et quelles formes de relation affective ou cognitive elles appelaient. Les oeuvres de Fra Angelico apparaissent alors profondément intégrées dans le spectacle total que constitue la liturgie, s'unissant à la musique, aux effets lumineux, aux paroles et aux gestes rituels pour élever l'esprit vers le paradis céleste. Conçues selon les principes- des arts de la mémoire abondamment pratiqués par les dominicains, elles sont aussi des "machines" pour la mémorisation, la méditation et l'invention d'autres images; racontant le passé, elles le font toujours pour le présent, à la manière de miroirs moraux qui guident les comportements quotidiens et façonnent la vie spirituelle."--Page 4 of cover.

"Rosalyn Drexler has always moved between worlds. In the late 1950s and early '60s, she showed sculpture at New York Reuben Gallery, a gathering place for artists like Allan Kaprow and Claes Oldenburg who combined installation and performance with traditional media. Drexler took part in Happenings at Reuben Gallery and at Judson Church (years after her own quasi-performance as a female wrestler, memorialized by Andy Warhol in the 1962 series Album of a Mat Queen). Drexler collages and large-format paintings of the 1960s open the category of Pop art to technology and politics in a way that feels contemporary today, crossing hard-edge painting with depictions of sex, violence, race and gender role-playing in film and media. Her writing also crosses high and low genres, comprising novels both experimental and popular, avant-garde theater and writing for television (including an Emmy-winning Lily Tomlin special). In addition to a comprehensive selection of Drexler's major paintings, Who Does She Think She Is? also recovers the artist's early sculptures, recently rediscovered and not exhibited since 1960. Documentation of Drexler's performances and theatrical work, photographs evoking her role in the downtown New York scene and a selection of her books and other archival materials present her work across multiple mediums, offering a comprehensive look at Drexler varied career."--Publisher's description.

Inner : the collected writings and selected interviews of Sean Scully
Scully, Sean, 1945- interviewee
Berlin, Germany : Hatje Cantz, [2016]
Sean Scully is among the greatest abstract painters of our age. He is also one of the most outspoken. Since the late 1960s, Scully's visual expressiveness has been matched by a verbal dynamism that is no less arresting than his art. Varying widely in form from brief reflections of compressed eloquence to essay-long meditations on artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Giorgio Morandi and Mark Rothko. Scully's writings are distinguished by a brutal lyricism and the effortlessness of their aphoristic turn of phrase. At once biographical and political, poignant and unflinching, the nearly 200 texts that comprise Inner: The Collected Writings and Selected Interviews of Sean Scully provide a unique perspective on one of the most engaging artistic imaginations of the past half century. Here, readers will discover the effusions of a mind tirelessly wrestling with the profoundest issues of art, cultural history, and what it means to be a creator in the contemporary world. The volume will be accompanied by key images illustrating Scully's words as well as facsimile reproductions of handwritten pages by the artist into which drawings have been integrated.

Rubrics, images and indulgences in late medieval Netherlandish manuscripts
Rudy, Kathryn M., author
Leiden : Brill, [2017]
What role did images play in the mania for indulgences during the decades prior to the Protestant Reformation? 'Rubrics, Images and Indulgences in Late Medieval Netherlandish Manuscripts' considers how indulgences (the remission of time in Purgatory) were used to market certain images. Conversely, images helped to spread indulgences, such as those attached to the Virgin in sole and the Mass of St Gregory. Images also began depicting the effects of indulgences: souls escaping Purgatory. Drawing on numerous unpublished sources, Kathryn M. Rudy demonstrates how rubrics modified behaviour and expectations around image-centred devotion. Her work is the first to analyse systematically the way that indulgences and images interacted - indeed, shaped each other - prior to the Reformation.

Toute sa vie Charles Bernier (Angre, 1871 - Angre, 1950) s'est spécialisé dans l'art de la gravure. Surtout les gravures en couleurs sont remarquables. À ses débuts il a copié les grands maîtres, mais à partir de 1899 il commence à graver des paysages et des scènes pastorales. Son ami Emile Verhaeren devient son modèle préféré. Il a portraituré le poète à plusieurs occasions et quelques portraits sont devenus de vrais classiques. Des années durant le Musée Verhaeren a su collectionner toute une série de portraits et l'année passée la collection a été complétée avec des pièces provenant de l'héritage de Bernier.

The Dome of the Rock and its Umayyad mosaic inscriptions
Milwright, Marcus, author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2016]
The Dome of the Rock is a shrine located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. When was it built? What meanings was it meant to convey to viewers at the time of its construction? These are questions that have preoccupied historians of Islamic art and architecture, and numerous interpretations of the Dome of the Rock have been proposed. Marcus Milwright returns to one of the most important pieces of evidence: the mosaic inscriptions running around the two faces of the octagonal arcade. His detailed examination of the physical characteristics, morphology and content of these inscriptions provides new evidence about the chronology the building and the iconography of the Dome of the Rock.

Thomas Cole : the artist as architect
Annette Blaugrund ; foreword by Barbara Novak ; essay by Franklin Kelly
New York, New York : The Monacelli Press, [2016]
Foreword / Barbara Novak -- Thomas Cole: the unknown architect / Annette Blaugrund -- The legacy of Thomas Cole's imaginative creations / Franklin Kelly.

"At the height of his career as the leader of the Hudson River School of American landscape painting, Thomas Cole listed himself in the New York City Directory as an architect. Why would this renowned painter, who had never before designed a building, advertise himself as such? The importance of Cole's paintings and the significance of his essays, poems, and philosophy are well established, yet an analysis of his architectural endeavors and their impact on his painting has not been undertaken--until now. In celebration of the recreation of the artist's self-designed Italianate studio at Cedar Grove in Catskill, New York, now the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, this book focuses on Cole's architectural interests through architectural elements found in his paintings and drawings as well as in his realized and visionary projects, expanding our understanding of the breadth of his talents and interests. An essay by noted art historian Annette Blaugrund and a contribution by Franklin Kelly, illustrated with Cole's famous works, sketches, and architectural renderings, reveal an unexplored, yet fascinating, aspect of the career of this beloved artist--and thus, a crucial moment in the development of the Hudson River School and American art." -- Publisher's description

Decorative textiles from Arab & Islamic cultures : selected works from the Al Lulwa collection
Wearden, Jennifer Mary, author
London : Paul Holberton Publishing, [2016]
"The exceptional collection published here ranges widely in region, material and technique. There are textiles and garments from North Africa, Syria, Arabia, Iran, Turkey and the Indian subcontinent linked by a shared vocabulary of ornament - evidence of the international nature of Islamic design. Materials represented are silk - the most prestigious of fibres, requiring highly respected weavers - wool, cotton and linen. Decoration is based on variations of weave and colour and embellishment through embroidery, printing and appliqué and illustrates the work of both professional and domestic workers. The strengths of the collection are concentrated in the textile production of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, which, thanks to the basically conservative nature of textile technique and design, preserve and continue the traditions established in the medieval Islamic world. They are important in an assessment of Islamic textiles both for their quality and as illustrations of survival and adaptation in a major industry. Their heritage reaches back well over a thousand years, even though their very high perishability means that for the earlier part of the tradition our knowledge is reliant very largely on written sources. These, however, attest to the superb quality and quantity of textiles at the courts of the period."--From

To see without being seen : contemporary art and drone warfare
Bräunert, Svea, author
St. Louis, Missouri : Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, [2016]
"As the ubiquitous vision and remote engagement of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, are redefining contemporary life, their impact is filtering into art and visual culture, generating new investigations into issues of perception, visibility, technology, and fear. Considering an international array of video, sculpture, installation, photography, and web-based projects, To See Without Being Seen: Contemporary Art and Drone Warfare reveals the unique potential of art to further our understanding of--and give visual form to--drone warfare and digital surveillance in today's world. While the drone is the specific point of departure for this investigation, the essays in this book illuminate the ways in which the drone embodies a much broader discussion about the rapidly shifting conditions of perception--of seeing, and of being seen--made possible by advanced technology."--Publisher's description.

The rise and fall of the fine art print in eighteenth-century France
Johnson, W. McAllister 1939-, author
London : University of Toronto Press, [2016]
The full statement of the question -- Orienting concepts -- Prints as information -- The fine art print defined -- Pendant prints -- The Académie as catalyst and regulator -- The Académie and the artist -- Creative issues -- Response time -- Career calculus -- Reputation and reflected glory -- Commercial ploys and the art of the annonce -- Prints and paintings on exhibition -- Engraved, not engraved -- Criticism, controversy and censure -- Greuze prints, including the salon -- The clash of genres -- Conclusion.

"Sanctioned by France's Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture and struck primarily in order to disseminate the works of the Academy's members, the eighteenth-century fine art print flourished only briefly. Yet it set into motion the interdependence of graphic and pictorial media. In The Rise and Fall of the Fine Art Print in Eighteenth-Century France, W. McAllister Johnson distills a lifetime of research into an essential study of this seminal phenomenon and chronicles the issues, decisions, and practicalities inherent in making copperplate engravings as articles of art and commerce. His exceptional erudition makes this an unparalleled resource for the study of visual culture and of all aspects of printmaking before the French Revolution."--
