The boundaries of art and social space in Rome : the caged bird and other art forms
Jones, Frederick, 1955- author
New York, NY : Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2016
1. Introduction: Art -- 2. The Roman Garden -- 3. The Garden Room at Prima Porta -- 4. Tapestry in Rome -- 5. The Caged Bird -- 6. Conclusion: Self-Projecting Inside and Out.

"This volume focuses on four cultural phenomena in the Roman world of the late Republic - the garden, a garden painting, tapestry, and the domestic caged bird. They accept or reject a categorisation as art in varying degrees, but they show considerable overlaps in the ways in which they impinge on social space. The study looks, therefore, at the borderlines between things that variously might or might not seem to be art forms. It looks at boundaries in another sense too. Boundaries between different social modes and contexts are embodied and represented in the garden and paintings of gardens, reinforced by the domestic use of decorative textile work, and replicated in the bird cage. The boundaries thus thematised map on to broader boundaries in the Roman house, city, and wider world, becoming part of the framework of the citizen's cognitive development and individual and civic identities. Frederick Jones presents a novel analysis that uses the perspective of cognitive development in relation to how elements of domestic and urban visual culture and the broader world map on to each other. His study for the first time understands the domestic caged bird as a cultural object and uniquely brings together four disparate cases under the umbrella of 'art'"--

A parallel excavation : Duane Linklater & Tanya Lukin Linklater
curated by Ociciwan Contemporary Art Collective ; essay by Erin Sutherland with Tiffany Shaw-Collinge
Edmonton, Alberta : Art Gallery of Alberta, [2016]
"Duane Linklater will collaboratively investigate drywall and its materiality. The source for drywall is gypsum, a crystalline material mined in North America and globally to form drywall. The largest pit mine for gypsum is located outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia. In this exhibition the Linklater will investigate the materiality of drywall, while considering the political implications of it as a resource mined in Canada and globally. At Linklakter's home studio in Ontario he will experiment with drywall sections, purchased in the province. The drywall sections will then be shipped to Edmonton, where they will visually lean against existing gallery walls. The drywall may be sanded, or otherwise engaged with--progress photos included on page 3 of this document. Tanya Lukin Linklater will also work within the gallery using archaeological sifters and field notebooks. These objects will operate more sculpturally in the gallery space in relation to the drywall pieces and sit further away from the gallery walls. There will be approximately 4-5 of the sifters and notebooks sized: small - 17" x 22," medium - 20" x 26," large - 22" x 28." This exhibition speaks to place--as the materials will be investigated and purchased in northern Ontario, but the exhibition, as a whole, will also explore Edmonton as a place, and their memory of a location the artists (both Duane Linklater and Tanya Lukin Linklater) occupied for nearly nine years. The artists are also considering the relationship of indigenous peoples to the gallery, institutions and museums, which are often peripheral or can be described as a relationship of marginality. An accompanied text from the artists will be created to expand on these relationships with a possible connection to the idea of excavation."--

Big plans! : on applied Modernism in Saxony-Anhalt 1919-1933
edited for the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation by Claudia Perren, Torsten Blume, and Alexia Pooth
Bielefeld : Kerber Verlag, c2016
Ninety years after the Bauhaus first opened its doors in Dessau, "Big Plans! Modern Types, Dreamers, and Inventors" is the first publication to prove that the Bauhaus was not the only forum for the international avant-garde, but part of a large, Modernist utopia. A futurist industrial region grew up in central Germany from 1919 to 1933; it was closely linked to visionary and idealized plans for a new image of humanity, realized in everything from architecture, education, and advertising to the notion of space exploration. The exhibition includes correspondence sent from the Bauhaus to Magdeburg, Halle (Saale), Leuna, Merseburg, Wolfen, and Elbingerorde. This intriguing companion volume opens up a view into a highly active field of dynamic, exploratory ideas coming from participants such as Walter Gropius, Xanti Schawinsky, Bruno Taut, and Wilhelm Deffke.

The Isaac Mizrahi pictures : New York City 1989-93
Waplington, Nick, photographer
Bologna, Italy : Damiani, 2015
From 1989 to 1993, New York fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi granted the British photographer Nick Waplington rare backstage access to photograph every detail of the designer's fitting sessions in the weeks before his twice-yearly fashion shows. Combining Waplington's gritty style with Mizrahi's haute couture sensibilities, the resulting images offer a candid glimpse into the world of fashion when supermodels including Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell reigned supreme. At the same time, Waplington set out to document the wildly creative nightlife of the '90s "club kid" culture in New York, juxtaposing his images of uptown style with downtown looks and taking pictures at some of the city's most infamous clubs, such as the Pyramid Club and Save the Robots. Artist and photographer Nick Waplington (born 1970) has published several monographs, including 'Living room' and 'The wedding' (Aperture), 'Safety in numbers' (Booth-Clibborn), 'Truth or Consequences' (Phaidon) and 'Alexander McQueen: Working process' (Damiani). He lives in London and New York. Isaac Mizrahi (born 1961) has been a leader in the fashion industry for almost 30 years. In 1995 he was the subject of the award-winning documentary, "Unzipped." In 2003 Mizrahi pioneered the concept of merging high design with mass retail in partnership with Target. He has designed costumes for the New York Metropolitan Opera, the American Ballet Theater and the San Francisco Ballet. Mizrahi is the author of 'How to have style' and has been head judge on Lifetime's 'Project runway: All stars.'

Psychology and philosophy of abstract art : neuro-aesthetics, perception and comprehension
Hackett, Paul, 1960- author
London : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
Defining two-dimensional abstract art -- Theorizing perception -- Expanding theoretical complexity -- Perceptual content, process and categorial ontologies -- Mapping sentence and partial order mereology for perceiving abstract art.

This book examines how we perceive and understand abstract art in contrast to artworks that represent reality. Philosophical, psychological and neuroscience research, including the work of philosopher Paul Crowther, are considered and out of these approaches a complex model is developed to account for this experience. The understanding embodied in this model is rooted in facet theory, mapping sentences and partially ordered analyzes, which together provide a comprehensive understanding of the perceptual experience of abstract art.

Reworlding art history : encounters with contemporary Southeast Asian art after 1990
Antoinette, Michelle, author
Amsterdam : Rodopi, 2014
Highlights the significance of contemporary Southeast Asian art and artists, and their place in the globalized art world and the internationalizing field of ⁰́₈contemporary art⁰́₉. In the light of the region⁰́₉s modern art history, the book surveys this relatively under-examined area of contemporary art which first found broad international recognition in the 1990s. Traced here are significant exhibitions that featured contemporary Southeast Asian art and brought it to regional and international attention. Examined are seminal foundational art histories, and dominant methods and thematic frameworks for engaging with Southeast Asian art. Key artists, exhibitions, collections, scholarship, ideologies, and discourses shaping its developing history are discussed, as are major works by artists associated with Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Singapore.

Revolutionary horizons : art and polemics in 1950s Cuba
McEwen, Abigail, 1980- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2016]
The horizon of vanguards -- Los Once and the polemics of abstraction -- Anti-Bienal, Bienal, and the dissolution of Los Once -- The offices of abstraction -- Cuba's concretos and the constructivist turn -- The endgame of abstraction.

"Modernism in Havana reached its climax during the turbulent years of the 1950s as a generation of artists took up abstraction as a means to advance artistic and political goals in the name of Cuba Libre. During a decade of insurrection and, ultimately, revolution, abstract art signaled the country's cultural worldliness and its purchase within the international avant-garde. This pioneering book offers the first in-depth examination of Cuban art during that time, following the intersecting trajectories of the artist groups Los Once and Los Diez against a dramatic backdrop of modernization and armed rebellion. Abigail McEwen explores the activities of a constellation of artists and writers invested in the ideological promises of abstraction, and reflects on art's capacity to effect radical social change. Featuring previously unpublished artworks, new archival research, and extensive primary sources, this remarkable volume excavates a rich cultural history with links to the development of abstraction in Europe and the Americas."

Edward Shaw of Boston : antebellum architect and author : an introduction
O'Gorman, James F., author
Philadelphia, PA : American Philosophical Society Press, 2016
This is the first in-depth study of the career of an important antebellum American architect and author. It is a contribution to the history of architecture and the history of the book. In the quarter century after 1830, Edward Shaw designed dozens of town houses in Boston, including the landmark Adam Wallace Thaxer, Jr. house on Beacon Hill (1836). Shaw also published five influential books on architecture and structural materials, one of them reprinted in several editions to 1900. Research in Boston archives has unearthed building records and drawings for unbuilt Shaw designs. The book also describes the design and contents of Shaw's published works, and traces their distribution across the country, from Maine to Oregon. -- Back cover.

Krishna in the garden of Assam : the history and context of a much-travelled textile
Blurton, T. Richard, author
London : The British Museum Press, 2016
The Vrindavani Vastra; is the most important surviving example of an Assamese devotional textile. This beautiful and rare textile, now in the British Museum, was produced in the late seventeenth century in the wake of the remarkable outflow of Krishna veneration resulting from the ministry of the great eastern Indian saint, Sankaradava (died 1568). Nine metres in length, it is made up of twelve strips, all now sown together, and woven with captioned scenes from the life of Krishna as recorded in the tenth-century text, the Bhagavata Purana, and elaborated in the dramas of Sankaradeva. The author looks at the art, technique and iconography of the textile and also places it within its wider religious, cultural and geographical contexts. He traces, too, its fascinating history and its journey from Assam to London.

Oscar Wilde prefigured : queer fashioning and British caricature, 1750-1900
Janes, Dominic, author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2016
I do not say you are it, but you look it, and you pose at it, which is just as bad," Lord Queensbury challenged Oscar Wilde in the courtroom which erupted in laughter accusing Wilde of posing as a sodomite. What was so terrible about posing as a sodomite, and why was Queensbury's horror greeted with such amusement? In Oscar Wilde Prefigured, Dominic Janes suggests that what divided the two sides in this case was not so much the question of whether Wilde was or was not a sodomite, but whether or not it mattered that people could appear to be sodomites. For many, intimations of sodomy were simply a part of the amusing spectacle of sophisticated life.Oscar Wilde Prefigured is a study of the prehistory of this "queer moment" in 1895. Janes explores the complex ways in which men who desired sex with men in Britain had expressed such interests through clothing, style, and deportment since the mid-eighteenth century. He supplements the well-established narrative of the inscription of sodomitical acts into a homosexual label and identity at the end of the nineteenth century by teasing out the means by which same-sex desires could be signaled through visual display in Georgian and Victorian Britain.

Women and museums, 1850-1914 : modernity and the gendering of knowledge
Hill, Kate, 1969- author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2016
"This is the first attempt to recover the entirety of women's contribution to British museums in the period 1850-1914. It sheds lights on women as museum workers, donors and visitors, demonstrates that through such roles women profoundly influenced the development of museums in the period and suggests that museums were a key site for the development of modern gendered identities"--Back cover.

Picturing Indian Territory : portraits of the land that became Oklahoma, 1819-1907
edited by B. Byron Price ; foreword by John R. Lovett ; contributions by James Peck, B. Byron Price, and Mark Andrew White
Norman : University of Oklahoma Press, [2016]
Forward / John R. Lovett -- Introduction / B. Byron Price -- Indian Territory, 1819-1861 : romanticism and the spirit of discovery / James Peck -- Indian Territory, 1861-1907 : turmoil and transition / B. Byron Price -- On to Oklahoma : Reportage, spectacle, and statehood / Mark Andrew White.

Throughout the nineteenth century, the land known as "Indian Territory" was populated by diverse cultures, troubled by shifting political boundaries, and transformed by historical events that were colorful, dramatic, and often tragic. Beyond its borders, most Americans visualized the area through the pictures produced by non-Native travelers, artists, and reportersall with differing degrees of accuracy, vision, and skill. The images in Picturing Indian Territory, and the eponymous exhibit it accompanies, conjure a wildly varied vision of Indian Territory's past.Spanning nearly nine decades, these artworks range from the scientific illustrations found in English naturalist Thomas Nuttall's journal to the paintings of Frederic Remington, Henry Farny, and Charles Schreyvogel. The volume's three essays situate these works within the historical narratives of westward expansion, the creation of an "Indian Territory" separate from the rest of the United States, and Oklahoma's eventual statehood in 1907. James Peck focuses on artists who produced images of Native Americans living in this vast region during the pre--Civil War era. In his essay, B. Byron Price picks up the story at the advent of the Civil War and examines newspaper and magazine reports as well as the accounts of government functionaries and artist-travelers drawn to the region by the rapidly changing fortunes of the area's traditional Indian cultures in the wake of non-Indian settlement. Mark Andrew White then looks at the art and illustration resulting from the unrelenting efforts of outsiders who settled Indian and Oklahoma Territories in the decades before statehood.

Exhibiting nation : multicultural nationalism (and its limits) in Canada's museums
Gordon-Walker, Caitlin, author
Toronto : UBC Press, 2016
Multicultural nationalism and the power of metaphor -- Museums, discipline, and dialogue -- The limits of unity in diversity -- The Royal BC Museum's modern history galleries -- The limits of equality and recognition -- The Royal Alberta Museum's cultural communities program -- The limits of universalism and diversity -- The Royal Ontario Museum's world cultures galleries.

"Canada's brand of nationalism celebrates diversity--so long as it doesn't challenge the unity, authority, or legitimacy of the state. Caitlin Gordon-Walker explores this tension between unity and diversity in three nationally recognized museums, institutions that must make judgments about what counts as "too different" in order to celebrate who we are as a people and nation through exhibits, programs, and design. Although the contradictions that lie at the heart of multicultural nationalism have the potential to constrain political engagement and dialogue, the sensory feasts on display in Canada's museums provide a space for citizens to both question and renegotiate the limits of their national vision."--

Berlin : Gestalten, 2016
The Vitra colour & material library. The library as a tool ; A smart system of interlocking colour wheels ; Signature colours ; Bridge colours ; The ebb and flow of colours ; Organising an organism -- The colour recipes. Let's start colour cooking ; Recipe one: Colours are personal ; Recipe two: Colours are powerful organisers in a space ; Recipe three: Warm and cold greys cover a wide range of tones ; Recipe four: Instability is a quality ; Recipe five: Upholstery textiles add a signature ; Recipe six: Material makes a colour ; Recipe seven: One colour is no colour ; Recipe eight: The size of a colour patch or colour field is important ; A never-ending process.

Ten years ago, the designer Hella Jongerius began a research project for the furniture company Vitra to study the properties and possibilities of colours, textures, finishes and materials. This long-term project has resulted in the Vitra Colour & Material Library, which is dedicated to the establishment and further development of an intelligent system of colours, materials and textiles that make it easy to create inspiring environments in offices, homes and public spaces. In the book I Don't Have a Favourite Colour, Hella Jongerius describes her method of research and the application of its results to the Vitra product portfolio.

Saint-Denis, dans l'éternité des rois et reines de France
sous la direction de Mgr Pascal Delannoy ; direction scientifique, Jean-Paul Deremble, Brigitte Lainé et Michaël Wyss ; coordination générale, Roland Lacharpagne
Paris : Place des victoires, [2015]
"C'est assurément le monument le plus emblématique de la longue histoirede France. Édifiée sur la tombe de saint Denis, nécropole royale depuis l'inhumation de Dagobert en 639, la basilique-cathédrale de Saint-Denis est aussi le premier chef-d'oeuvre de l'art gothique. Au XIIe siècle, l'abbé Suger a fait reconstruire sur l'ancienne église carolingienne un écrin somptueux pour accueillir les tombeaux des rois et des reines. Avec un génie visionnaire, il a permis une pénétration maximale de la lumière, façonnant un édifice d'une audacieuse modernité pour son temps et devenant ainsi l'un des inventeurs majeurs de l'architecture gothique qui allait essaimer dans toute l'Europe. Il célébrait ainsi la gloire des rois de France, leur offrant un cimetière qui accueillerait les monarques défunts au fil des siècles, des Mérovingiens aux Bourbons, de Clovis à Louis XVIII, avec les reines, Anne de Bretagne, Catherine de Médicis et Marie-Antoinette, nombre de princes et princesses, mais aussi le connétable Bertrand du Guesclin, héros de la guerre de Cent Ans. Si les destructions révolutionnaires l'ont atteinte, avec les brutales profanations des tombeaux royaux la basilique a retrouvé avec Napoléon son destin de grand monument national qui fascine et impressionne les innombrables visiteurs. Restaurée en 2015, la façade affirme à nouveau sa majesté rayonnante au coeur d'une cité aux cultures les plus diverses. Abbaye, basilique, puis église paroissiale, élevée au rang de cathédrale en 1966, Saint-Denis méritait un livre d'exception. Pas moins de 60 auteurs donnent ici la plus complète et la plus à jour des documentations merveilleusement illustrée."--Page 4 of cover.

Bitten by witch fever : wallpaper & arsenic in the Victorian home
Hawksley, Lucinda, author
New York, NY : Thames & Hudson Ltd/The National Archives, 2016
Introduction: Arsenic & Victorian paper hangings -- Chapter one: Arsenic murder & myth -- Chapter two: Madness in the method; Poison in the process -- Chapter three: Arsenic in the home -- Chapter four: The wallpaper designers -- Chapter five: The public debate -- Chapter six: Getting away from it all -- Chapter seven: The rise of arsenic-free wallpaper.

Beautiful to look at and compelling to read, this book is a highly original and captivating volume that interleaves facsimile sections of alluring, arsenic-laden wallpapers with thought-provoking narrative. It is tracing the arresting story of the use and effects of the toxic pigments ingrained in popular wallpapers of the nineteenth century. Hawksley presents the history of Scheele's green and schweinfurt green, pigments created using arsenic, which produced the vibrant shades whose brilliance made them instant favourites with wallpaper designers and householders alike. With the aid of contemporary case studies and reports in the press, she reveals how, by the middle of the century, manufacturers were producing millions of rolls of arsenical wallpaper, with devastating consequences for those working in their factories and for those living in rooms decorated with the deadly designs. The wallpaper sections display dazzling long-lost work from the great designers and printers of the age, including Christopher Dresser, Corbiere, Son & Brindle, Charles Knowles & Co. and Morris & Co.--whose owner was famously dismissive of the fatal effects of living with arsenic-filled wallpapers.

Biologies and Architectural Histories -- Biologies and Architectural Theories and Practices -- Biologies and Art Histories -- Biologies and Art Theories and Practices.

The Routledge Companion to Biology in Art and Architecture collects thirty essays from a transdisciplinary array of experts on biology in art and architecture. The book presents a diversity of hybrid art-and-science thinking, revealing how science and culture are interwoven. The book situates bioart and bioarchitecture within an expanded field of biology in art, architecture, and design. It proposes an emergent field of biocreativity and outlines its historical and theoretical foundations from the perspective of artists, architects, designers, scientists, historians, and theoreticians.

The prints of Paul Sandby (1731-1809) : a catalogue raisonné
Gunn, Ann V., author
Turnhout : Harvey Miller Publischers, 2015
Born in Nottingham, Paul Sandby (1731-1809) is best known as a founder member of the Royal Academy and a prominent figure in the development of British watercolour painting. However, he was also one of the most prolific and inventive printmakers in eighteenth-century Britain. From his early years as a draughtsman for the military survey of Scotland, and later from his extensive tours throughout England and Wales, he depicted the people, towns, castles and landscapes of the nation. He provided the public with images of their country which contributed to the emerging appreciation of native landscape, to antiquarian interests, and to the development of picturesque tours within the British Isles. Although he never travelled abroad, he reproduced the work of fellow artists who had, tapping into the Grand Tour market with prints of Ionian antiquities, Neapolitan landscapes and the Roman carnival. But his work encompassed more than landscape; he could move from the pastoral humour of illustrations to Allan Ramsay’s poem The Gentle Shepherd, through the urban realism of his Cries of London to the merciless satire of his attacks on William Hogarth. From the 1740s to the 1780s he made over 380 prints: engravings, etchings, soft ground etchings and finally aquatints, a medium in which he was a pioneer. Aquatint enabled printmakers to reproduce the effects of watercolour paintings; Sandby gave the process its name and developed varied techniques which allowed the exact reproduction of the artist’s brush strokes, producing some of the most beautiful prints ever made in this medium.

Anmut und Aufklärung : eine Sammlung von Druckgraphik nach Werken von Angelika Kauffmann
Bettina Baumgärtel ; Katalog, herausgegeben im Auftrag der Winckelmann-Gesellschaft von Max Kunze
Wiesbaden : In Kommission bei Harrassowitz Verlag, c2016
Der Ausstellungskatalog präsentiert die Sammlung zweier Mitglieder der Winckelmann-Gesellschaft, der Münchner Klassizismus-Sammler Sven Kielgas und Falk Morten Weber. In Ihrer Sammlung klassizistischer Kunst befinden sich u. a. gut 100 Stiche nach den berühmtesten Werken von Angelika Kauffmann aus dem Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts. Diese Sammlung stellt zugleich einen Querschnitt aus dem Schaffen dieser Ausnahmekünstlerin dar, denn mythologische Themen sind in ihr ebenso vertreten wie Portraits, für die sie weltberühmt wurde, oder Szenen nach Werken Shakespeares. Als junge Künstlerin wurde Angelika Kauffmann in Rom schlagartig durch ihr Porträt J. J. Winckelmanns berühmt, das sie im Alter von 22 Jahren im Auftrag des Schweizer Malers Johann Kaspar Füßli 1764 geschaffen hatte. Winckelmann hatte sich mehrfach in Briefen sehr anerkennend über das Gemälde und die Porträtradierung geäußert. Die Sammlung Kielgas-Weber gibt auch Einblick in die Blütezeit der englischen Reproduktionsgraphik. Besonders durch die neu entwickelte Technik des Punktierstichs erreichten Kauffmanns Werke einen enormen internationalen Bekanntheitsgrad. Exhibition: Winckelmann-Museum, Stendal, Germany (04.09 - 20.11.2016).

L'Odyssée des animaux : les peintres animaliers flamands au xviie siècle

Newman, Jaco Rutgers, Geert Vanpaemel, Sandrine Vézilier-Dussart ; auteurs des notices, Brigitte Olivier, Bert Schepers, Cécile Laffon, Isabelle De Jaegere, Joël Hubrecht, Jaco Rutgers, Sandrine Vézilier-Dussart
Gent : Snoeck, [2016]
Au XVIIe siècle s'affirme dans la peinture flamande un genre bien singulier, l'art animalier. Les peintres flamands, si sensibles au rendu des matières, excellent dans la représentation plus ou moins fidèle de l?animal. La primeur est donnée au réalisme au détriment du fantastique. Le processus de spécialisation est enclenché. Si les scènes de chasse et les étals de marché traduisent opulence et raffinement, d?autres sujets se0démarquent par leur orientation plus existentielle. Les paradis terrestres évoquent une période révolue où prédateurs et proies cohabitaient en une douce harmonie. L?homme devient alors quasi inexistant voire totalement absent. C'est le règne animal, par excellence! L'exposition est une première: malgré l'attractivité de la thématique et leur importance capitale dans l'émergence de l'art animalier, les peintres animaliers flamands au XVIIe siècle, n'ont jamais fait l'objet d'une étude globale et approfondie. Exhibition: Musée de Flandre, Cassel, France (08.10.2016 - 22.01.2017).

Amsterdam 1900 : foto's van Olie, Breitner, Eilers en tijdgenoten
Olie, Jacob, 1834-1905, photographer
Amsterdam : Stadsarchief, [2016]
"Rond 1900 werd Amsterdam een dynamische stad. In dezelfde tijd ontwikkelde de fotografie zich tot een modern medium. In 'Amsterdam 1900 - Foto's van Olie, Breitner, Eilers en tijdgenoten' komen beide ontwikkelingen samen. In de binnenstad verrezen beeldbepalende gebouwen als het Centraal Station en de Beurs van Berlage. De industrie en de havens groeiden, maar tegelijk verkrotte de oude stad en was er veel armoede. Voor het eerst was het technisch mogelijk beweging in beeld te brengen waardoor foto's van rond 1900 een heel ander Amsterdam laten zien, een levende stad, drukbevolkt en bedrijvig. Onderzoek in fotografiecollecties van musea en archieven heeft een schat aan onbekende beelden van de stad en het leven in Amsterdam opgeleverd. Het boek laat de geboorte van de kunstfotografie, nieuwsfotografie, familiefotografie en de snapshot zien en biedt inzicht in de radicale verandering die het fotografische landschap honderd jaar geleden onderging. Van Jacob Olie, George Hendrik Breitner en Bernard Eilers zijn tot nu toe onbekende afdrukken te zien, deels uit particuliere collecties. Voor het eerst worden hun foto's met elkaar gecombineerd en met werk van tijdgenoten - amateurs en beroeps. Vintage prints en albums tonen de grote variatie in techniek, stijl en formaat van de fotografie uit die tijd. De collectie gezinsfoto's en stadsgezichten op autochromeplaten van Jan Zeegers zijn een uniek document van de vroege kleurenfotografie. Amsterdam 1900 focust op een kantelmoment in de geschiedenis van de fotografie en toont de wisselwerking tussen stad en fotografen.

In Things From The Flood, Stålenhag moves his focus from the '80s to the '90s, the decade of great change when the outside world truly came to Scandinavia.

Beyond maps and atlases
Manen, Bertien van, photographer
[London] : Mack, [2016]
In this new body of work. Beyond maps and atlases, Bertien van Manen turns to Ireland. Van Manen says, At first, working in Ireland I wasn't sure what I was looking for. My husband had died. I dispensed with the people and reflected on the atmosphere. I was guided by a feeling and a search, a longing for some kind of meaning in a place of myths and legends. There was mystery and endlessness at the edge of a land beyond which is nothing but a vast expanse. where can it be found again? An elswhere world, beyond maps and atlases. Where all is woven into and of itself, like a nest of crosshatched grass blades Seamus heaney Van Manen rolled into photography almost by accident, taking pictures of her children with an old camera. As her work became more public she was soon drafted into the world of fashion photography. In 1977 she tired of the industry, and on discovering the documentary photograpy of Robert Frank and Josef Koudelka, van Manen began to explore the developing relationship between herself and her subjects, keeping a closeness and developing a personal, organic style of photography. Recent works include Easter and Oak Trees (MACK, 2013) and Moonshine (MACK, 2014).

A revolution in color : the world of John Singleton Copley

New York : W.W. Norton & Company, [2016]
The provincial eye -- A dazzling of scarlet -- The imperial eye -- A son of British liberty -- The marriage plot -- The tyranny of liberty -- Luxury in seeing -- The American war -- Waging peace -- Daughters and sons -- Betsy Copley's smile.

In this life of painter John Singleton Copley, award-winning Harvard historian Jane Kamensky masterfully untangles the web of principles and interests that shaped the age of America's revolution. Copley's prodigious talent earned him the patronage of Boston's patriot leaders, including Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. But the artist did not share their politics, and painting portraits failed to satisfy his lofty artistic goals. An ambitious British subject who lamented America's provincialism, Copley looked longingly across the Atlantic. When resistance escalated into all-out war, Copley was in London. The magisterial canvases he created there made him one of the towering figures of the British art scene: a painter of America's revolution as Britain's American War. Kamensky's gripping history brings Copley's world alive and explores the fraught relationships between liberty and slavery, family duty and personal ambition, legacy and posterity-tensions that characterized the era of the American Revolution and that beset us still.

Among all of Monet's creations, the paintings of the water lilies in his garden at Giverny are most famous. Monet himself intended them to provide "an asylum of peaceful meditation." Yet, as King reveals, these beautiful canvases belie the intense frustration Monet experienced at the difficulties of capturing the fugitive effects of light, water, and color. They also reflect the terrible personal torments Monet suffered in the last dozen years of his life. By early 1914 French newspapers were reporting that Monet had retired his brushes, yet at 73 he began perhaps his most ambitious project.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem : herinneren en vergeten in het werk van Anselm Kiefer en Gerhard Richter
Weijers, Wouter
Nijmegen : In de Walvis / Vantilt, c2016
De Duitse kunstenaars Anselm Kiefer (1945) en Gerhard Richter (1932) maakten ieder een schilderij met de titel 'Jerusalem' - Kiefer in 1986, Richter in 1995. Een Duitse kunstenaar die in de tweede helft van de twintigste eeuw een kunstwerk maakt en dat Jerusalem noemt, kan niet anders dan zich bewust zijn van de last van de recente Duitse geschiedenis die achter de titel schuilgaat. Hij is doordrongen van de vernietiging van de Europese joden. Hoezeer hun schilderijen ook in vorm, intentie en achtergrond verschillen, Kiefer en Richter nemen in hun kunst steeds weer stelling tegenover dat onvoorstelbare feit, niet alleen in hun beider 'Jerusalem' maar ook in andere werken. In 'Jerusalem, Jerusalem' worden de uiteenlopende en onderling strijdige wijzen geanalyseerd waarop Kiefer en Richter in hun werk de problematische erfenis van Tweede Wereldoorlog en de Holocaust verbeelden. Beide kunstenaars staan voor de grote vraag hoe in het naoorlogse Duitsland uitdrukking te geven aan het onvoorstelbare. Daarbij wordt wat krampachtig werd vergeten weer in herinnering gebracht, en wordt de herinnering betwijfeld. Gaandeweg ontrafelt 'Jerusalem, Jerusalem' hoe geschiedenis, herinnering en schilderkunst zich in het werk van deze kunstenaars met elkaar verknopen.

Fremde Götter : Faszination Afrika und Ozeanien = Foreign gods : fascination Africa and Oceania
Hans-Peter Wipplinger (Hrsg./ed.)
Köln : Buchhandlung Walther König, c2016
Pablo Picasso once said that he only realized "what painting is really about" when he saw the African masks at the Paris Musée d'Ethnographie. The exponents of the Expressionist artists' group "Die Brücke" also derived inspiration from the collections of the ethnological museums for their own carvings and turned their studios into exotic refuges. However, in their quest for an ecstatic natural state they often overlooked the fact that these objects of tribal art especially are based on strict design principles. The Dadaists liked to present themselves at times as "wild" mask wearers and sneered at the habitus of the European man of culture. The Surrealists saw the art and myths of Oceania as media for exploring hidden realms of the unconscious mind. This interest in and reception of the art of "indigenous peoples" not only provided a formal alternative to bourgeois tastes but was also a symptom of a deep-rooted longing for a life reform. Rudolf Leopold felt that the art of so-called "primitive" ethnicities was a priori Expressionist. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that his collection comprises more than 200 rare ancestral figures, dance masks, weapons, architectural sculptures and other extraordinary works from carvers from Africa and Oceania.

Frank Lloyd Wright and San Francisco
Turner, Paul Venable, author
London : Yale University Press, [2016]
Frank Lloyd Wright and the Bay Area -- The early years -- Resurgence in the 1930s -- Dynamic new forms in the 1940s -- Domestic designs of the 1950s -- Monumental last projects -- Aftermath and overview.

"Although Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) famously disliked cities, he had a genuine affinity for San Francisco. Paul V. Turner's unprecendented book looks at the architect's complex and evolving relationship with the city, surveying the full body of Wright's work in the Bay Area-- roughly thirty projects, a third of which were built. Spanning from 1900 to 1959, they include houses, a gift shop, a civic center, a skyscraper, a church, and industrial building, a mortuary, a brigde across the San Francisco Bay, and even a dog house. The unbuilt structures are among Wright's most innovative, and the diverse reason for their failure counter long-held stereotypes about the architect and his client relationships. Wright's Bay Area projects are published together here for the first time, along with previously unpublished correspondence between Wright and his clients, as well as his Bay Area associate Aaron Green. Stories from San Francisco newspapers portray the media's changing positions on Wright -- from his early personal scandals to his later roles as eccentric provocateur and celebrated creative genius." -- Book jacket.

Wunder.Alltag.Familie = Wonder.Dagelijks leven.familie = Miracle - Everyday life - Family
herausgegeben von Draiflessen Collection ; bearbeitet von Iris Ellers, Olesja Nein
Mettingen : Draiflessen Collection, [2016]
The collection of drawings, prints, and books of the Liberna Collection forms the starting point for this exhibition. Devoted to images of the Holy Family in everyday surroundings, the show features works from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. The exhibition begins with medieval examples of miracle scenes from sumptuous manuscripts and incunabula scenes that illustrate the emergence of the pictorial subject of the Holy Family in everyday settings. The proliferation and further development of this subject before and during the Reformation is represented in the show by prints by Albrecht Altdorfer and Albrecht Dürer. After the Reformation, depictions of the daily life of the Holy Family changed, as seen, for example, in etchings by Dutch artists Rembrandt van Rijn and Ferdinand Bol. In the 19th century, the Nazarenes revisited the subject in their religious works, and, as a consequence, communicated the ideal of domestic virtue. The presentation will feature three manuscripts and numerous incunabula as well as seven engravings from our own collection. Also on view will be a series of 13 prints by Hieronymus Wierix, on loan from the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in Cologne, and drawings by the Nazarenes from the Landesmuseum Mainz, the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, and the Museum Behnhaus Drägerhaus in Lübeck.

Ensor and Spilliaert : two great Ostend masters
Gheeraert, Inne, author
Oostende : Kunstmuseum aan zee, [2016]
Ostend and James Ensor are inextricably linked. Ensor loved Ostend: the city served as his muse and inexhaustible source of inspiration. He loved it for its crowds, the tempestuous North Sea, the carnival that painted the streets in festive colours each year. The name of the painter Léon Spillaert, twenty years his junior, is also connected with this Queen of Seaside Resorts. His nocturnal rambles through the city and long walks along the beach spurred him to create his best works, dark and suffused with mystery. Although Ensor and Spilliaert were very different as artists, their names are often mentioned in the same breath. In Two Masters of Ostend, the museum aims, above all, to allow the masterworks that are the highlights of its collection to speak for themselves. Exhibition: Mu.Zee, Ostend, Belgium (30.04.2016 - ).

Das verlorene Bild : eine Aufforderung zur Reflexion über Künstlernachlässe
Zeidler, Frank Michael, 1952-
Freiburg : Modo, c2016
Frank Michael Zeidler hat in vielen Veranstaltungen zu dem Thema Künstlernachlässe gesprochen und hat nun eine Publikation vorgelegt, die mehr Essay als Ratgeber ist. Weil es den einen Weg, mit dem Werk umzugehen, nicht gibt und weil das Thema unseren grundsätzlichen Umgang mit Kunst berührt. Dass der Gegenstand derart neuralgisch werden konnte, liegt auch in der Professionalisierung und Demokratisierung des Kunstschaffens, die bei den Akademien beginnt und beim Künstlerbedarf endet und der Situation der Museen. Während immer mehr Kunst entsteht, sinken die Ressourcen der Institutionen, Nachlässe zu verwalten. Zeidler appelliert in seiner Schrift an die eigene Verantwortung der Künstlerinnen und Künstler, die Spreu vom Weizen zu trennen und er erinnert an die Last, die das Erbe eines solchen Nachlasses für die Nachkommen bedeuten kann. 'Das verlorene Bild. Eine Aufforderung zur Reflexion über Künstlernachlässe' richtet sich nicht allein an Künstlerinnen und Künstler sowie ihre Erben, sondern fordert auch Leiter von Museen und überhaupt die Öffentlichkeit auf, über den Umgang mit dem kulturellen Erbe nachzudenken. Nicht für jedes Werk ist eine Stiftung, die Aufnahme in einer Sammlung oder gar in einem Museum, eine Lösung. Denn eines scheint gewiss, eine postume Karriere wie Van Gogh wird eine Ausnahme bleiben.

Greek myths in Roman art and culture : imagery, values and identity in Italy, 50 BC-AD 250
Newby, Zahra, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Art and power in the public sphere -- Recreating myth in the Roman villa -- Paideia, rhetoric and self-representation: responses to mythological wall-paintings -- Mythological wall-paintings in the Roman house -- From home to tomb: myths in the funerary realm -- The rhetoric of mythological sarcophagi: praise, lament and consolation -- Epilogue: the Roman past, the culture of exemplarity and a new role for Greek myth.

"Images of episodes from Greek mythology are widespread in Roman art, appearing in sculptural groups, mosaics, paintings and reliefs. They attest to Rome's enduring fascination with Greek culture, and its desire to absorb and reframe that culture for new ends. This book provides a comprehensive account of the meanings of Greek myth across the spectrum of Roman art, including public, domestic and funerary contexts. It argues that myths, in addition to functioning as signifiers of a patron's education or paideia, played an important role as rhetorical and didactic exempla. The changing use of mythological imagery in domestic and funerary art in particular reveals an important shift in Roman values and senses of identity across the period of the first two centuries AD, and in the ways that Greek culture was turned to serve Roman values"--

Winfried Baumann : Kathedralen für den Müll = cathedrals for garbage
Baumann, Winfried, 1956-
[München] : Hirmer, c2016
Der Bildhauer Winfried Baumann (* 1956) stellt mit seinen Arbeiten Fragen nach sozialer Verantwortung und der Wahrnehmung heutiger Gesellschaftsformen. Seine Themen sind von grosser Aktualität: inhaltlich in Bezug auf soziale und städtebauliche Visionen, formal als Grenzüberschreitung zwischen freier bildender Kunst und angewandter Gestaltung. 0Seit über dreissig Jahren beschäftigt sich Winfried Baumann mit der zusehends zu einer Überlebensfrage der zivilisierten Gesellschaft avancierten ökologischen Problematik. Müll, Schlacke aus der Müllverbrennung, Altöl und andere Abfallprodukte unserer Konsumgesellschaft sind Werkstoffe, die er seit Mitte der 1980er-Jahre für sein plastisches Werk und seine raumgreifenden Installationen verwendet. In der umfangreichen Werkgruppe 'Kathedralen für den Müll' beschäftigt sich der Künstler u.a. mit Deponieanlagen für megaurbane Räume, der Sicherung und Markierung nuklear verstrahlten Areale, Mülldeponien für urbane Zwischenräume und dem Thema Urban Mining.

Kunstenaars Jan Altink, Toon Benes, Johan Dijkstra, Willem Reinders en Jan Wiegers willen tot een samenwerking komen van Groninger artiesten. Het was Altink die de naam voorstelde: de Ploeg moest de braakliggende Groninger kunstakkers omploegen en ontginnen als het landschap zelf. Tijdens de eerste tentoonstelling in 1919 waren honderdelf werken te bewonderen van twintig exposanten. Naast de oprichters sloten rond die tijd ook andere kunstenaars zich aan bij de Ploeg: Jan Jordens, George Martens, Alida Pott en H.N. Werkman.

"This handsome book explores in depth a group of stunning painted and gilded furniture designed by the architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe (1764-1820), best known for originating the plans for the United States Capitol. The furniture was made in Philadelphia for one of the city's finest houses, the home of William and Mary Wilcocks Waln, which Latrobe also designed. Drawing on a multiyear conservation and research project, Classical Splendor reveals new insights into the patrons, makers, and history behind these extraordinary pieces. In addition to extensively documenting each item, the book attests to Latrobe's significant contributions to American furniture design, his pieces for the Waln house introduced, and served as exemplars of, a classical style rooted in ancient Greek and Roman design"--Publisher's description.

Renaissance art in Venice : from tradition to individualism
Nichols, Tom, 1958- author
London : Laurence King Publishing, 2016
The 'Most Serene Republic': Venice at the Outset of the Renaissance -- Innovation as Tradition: 1440-75 -- A Perfected Image of Venice: 1476-1500 -- Individualism, Internationalism, Secularization: 1501-25 -- Romanism Rank, and Rivalry: 1526-50 -- The Victory of Art: 1551-75 -- Adversity, Creativity, Retrospectivity: 1576-1600.

Art and architecture have always been central to Venice but in the Renaissance period, between c.1440 and 1600, they reached a kind of apotheosis when many of the city's new buildings, sculpture and paintings took on distinctive and original qualities. The spread of Renaissance values provided leading artists such as Gentile and Giovanni Bellini, Giorgione, Palladio, Titian and Tintoretto with a licence for artistic invention. By adopting a chronological approach, with each chapter covering a successive twenty-five year period, and focusing attention on the artists, Tom Nichols presents a vivid, richly illustrated and easily navigable study of Venetian Renaissance art.

"The work of Mierle Laderman Ukeles bridges feminism, environmentalism, and participatory art practice. This first comprehensive book on the influential artist explores her legendary tenure as artist-in-residence at New York City's Department of Sanitation, which paved the way for similar "embedded artists" in government and community organizations. Essays, interviews, and striking illustrations offer important perspectives on an artist who has transformed our ideas about the feminist, urban, ecological, and resilient aspects of artistic experience. Whether it's her groundbreaking "Manifesto for Maintenance Art 1969!," which decries the separation, especially for women, between art on the one hand and caring for family, city, and planet on the other; or "The Social Mirror," in which she covered a New York City Department of Sanitation truck entirely in mirrored glass-Ukeles's body of work includes public art installations, exhibitions, and performances around the world, frequently created in collaboration with sanitation and municipal workers, museum visitors, and the public"--

"Hailed as a precursor of both pop art and contemporary abstraction, Stuart Davis captured the energy of mass culture and modern life. Beginning in 1921, a series of breakthroughs led him to develop a more abstract approach. Fusing American urban experience with European modernism, his style evolved over the next four decades to become a dominant force in postwar art. The book features some 100 works, from his 1921 paintings of tobacco packages to his abstract Egg Beater series of the late twenties, the ambitious WPA murals of the thirties, and the bold works of his last two decades, in which jagged shapes and bright colors tangle with vigorous calligraphy. The volume pays special attention to his transformative recycling of earlier works; and a chronology-drawing on previously unpublished sources-represents the most complete biography to date, painting a vivid picture of economic hardship, political activism, personal struggle, and eventual triumph"--

Der Gartenkünstler Peter Joseph Lenne : eine Karriere am preussischen Hof
Wimmer, Clemens Alexander, 1959-
Darmstadt : Lambert Schneider, 2016
Er wurde mit Ehrungen überhäuft und war schon zu Lebzeiten eine Legende. Seine Gartenanlagen sind bis heute Publikumsmagneten. Peter Joseph Lenné (1789-1866) ist der wohl bedeutendste Gartenkünstler Deutschlands. Er gestaltete hunderte von Anlagen wie Sanssouci, die Pfaueninsel und den Berliner Tiergarten und lieferte Pläne bis nach Aachen, Königsberg und Wien. Clemens Alexander Wimmer schildert den Aufstieg des ehrgeizigen Hofbeamten, der sich geschickt gegen einflussreiche Konkurrenten durchsetzt und rasch die Gunst der preussischen Könige erobert. Vor dem Hintergrund einer bewegten Epoche zwischen Revolution und Restauration porträtiert er Lenné als komplexen Charakter, der in seinem rastlosen Arbeitseifer auch Konflikte nicht scheut. Erstmals wurde für diese Biographie der Nachlass lückenlos ausgewertet und Peter Joseph Lenné und seine Nachwirkung einer kritischen Neubewertung unterzogen.0.

Sculpture, Photography, Surface / Ina Blom -- Sara VanDerBeek in Conversation with Roxana Marcoci: On the Conditions of Photo-Based Culture.

"Made with the camera's perspective in mind, Sara VanDerBeek's photographic and sculptural arrangements emulate a poet's economic use of structure, phrasing, and rhythm. Operating as sites of contact, her works position the archaeological past in direct dialogue with current forms of digital image capture and circulation. The subject of solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, and the Baltimore Museum of Art, Sara VanDerBeek (*1976, New York) has been internationally recognized as a key progenitor of contemporary art's engagement with the medium of photography in an expanded field. This first book-length study distills dscrete bodies of work made between 2006 and 2016 that shift between the more controlled space of the studio and site visits to Detroit, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Rome, Paris, Naples, Ecuador, Rotterdam, and Baltimore."--Back cover

Monika Fioreschy : strip-cut-collage : Gedankenfelder = fields of ideas
essays by Bazon Brock ; Übersetzung/translation, Michael Suffil
Munich, Germany : Hirmer, [2016]
Tearing, cutting, shredding in order to reassemble the elements and create something new: strip by strip the Austrian artist Monika Fioreschy applies lengths of torn paper to her canvases, thereby creating large-format abstract works filled with a harmonious formal language and offering an unexpected wealth of detail when observed more closely. Paper is the main medium used in the new cycles of works by Monika Fioreschy, whereby the strength of her works lies in the reduction of materials and forms. Line by line our eyes follow the course of the collages; the observer is seduced into reading her art. The strict regularity of the works is interrupted by changes in colour, the arrangement of the folds, gaps and overpasting, whereby the real wealth of detail only becomes evident through intensive study. In his essay accompanying the full-page reproductions of the works, art theorist Bazon Brock explains how Fioreschy's training in classic weaving skills can be rediscovered in these works and the role they play in the artist's oeuvre as a whole.

Introduction -- Past masters -- The impact of Impressionism -- Portraying the individual -- In pursuit of the human figure -- Searching for the ideal in the landscape -- The ultimate construct in still life.

"This beautifully illustrated volume traces the development of Cézanne's style through his works on paper. Diverse in subject matter and execution, his drawings and watercolors include copies of other masters' works, studies of his immediate family and their domestic surroundings, and preliminary ideas for finished compositions. They reveal Cézanne as someone deeply committed to devising a process for comprehending and recording the world as he saw it. The result is some of the most absorbing art ever created."--Publisher's website.

Sebastião Salgado documents the torched Kuwaiti oil wells. In January and February 1991, as the United States-led coalition drove Iraqi forces out of Kuwait, Saddam Hussein's troops retaliated with an inferno. At some 700 oil wells and an unspecified number of oil-filled low-lying areas they ignited vast, raging fires , sending billowing black clouds over the region and thousands of tons of nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Le goût du Moyen Age en Bourgogne : La Rochepot et les châteaux néogothiques (1820-1940)
Saccaro, Laurent, author
Dijon : Éditions universitaires de Dijon, [2016]
Si leurs qualités esthétiques ont généralement été reconnues, les châteaux néogothiques de Bourgogne n'avaient suscité qu'un faible intérêt universitaire jusqu'à présent. Ce paradoxe est aujourd'hui dépassé, les styles 'néo' ne sont plus objets de mépris mais d'un intérêt grandissant de la part des historiens de l'art. Issu d'un travail de master poursuivi en thèse, cet ouvrage s'inscrit dans ce mouvement en mettant en lumière ces demeures dont l'histoire et la valeur architecturale sont souvent ignorées. Le livre s'articule autour de la plus célèbre d'entre elles, le château de La Rochepot, qui fait l'objet d'une étude complète et approfondie, depuis la construction médiévale jusqu'au 'Pierrefonds de la Bourgogne' voulu par le colonel Sadi-Carnot. Cette analyse, alimentée par des sources inédites, est renforcée par celle d'une trentaine d'édifices, célèbres ou méconnus, mais tous remarquables par leur qualité artistique. Illustrant une néogothique fantaisiste ou archéologique au contraire, ces châteaux étudiés ont pris leur aspect actuel entre 1820 et 1940 et se situent en Côte-d'Or ou en Saône-et-Loire, à l'exception de Chastellux-sur-Cure. L'étude est précédée d'un chapitre qui replace ces demeures dans un contexte national et local de longue durée, pour mieux saisir les nouveautés et les continuités, les originalités et les conformismes. Un répertoire des principaux architectes et artistes du néogothique bourguignon complète l'ouvrage. Ainsi, au gré de riches archives et de nombreuses illustrations, c'est un moment très riche de l'histoire locale qui apparaît dans ses œuvres et ses différents acteurs.

Douglas Crimp is the rare art critic whose work profoundly influenced a generation of artists. He is best known for his work with the "Pictures Generation" the very name of which Crimp coined to define the work of artists like Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman who appropriated images from mass culture to carry out a subversive critique. But while his influence is widely recognized, we know little about Crimp's own formative experiences before "Pictures. Before Pictures tells the story of Crimp's life as a young gay man and art critic in New York City during the late 1960s through the turbulent 1970s. Crimp participated in all of what made the city so stimulating in that vibrant decade. The details of his professional and personal life are interwoven with this the particularly rich history of New York City at that time, producing a vivid portrait of both the critic and his adopted city. The book begins with his escape from his hometown in Idaho, and we quickly find Crimp writing criticism for ArtNews while working at the Guggenheim where, as a young curatorial assistant, he was one of the few to see Daniel Buren's Peinture-Sculpture before it was removed amid cries of institutional censorship. Part biography and part cultural history, Before Pictures is a courageous account of an exceptional period in both Crimp's life and the life of New York City. At the same time, it offers a deeply personal and engaging point of entry into important issues in contemporary art.

Textiles & garments at the Jaipur court
Rahul Jain
New Delhi, India : Niyogi Books, 2016
"The textiles of the Kachhwaha Rajput maharajas of Amber-Jaipur were among the finest ever produced in India. This book offers tribute to that remarkable artistic and material legacy. While a few thousand historical pieces survive in the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum in the City Palace, Jaipur, many now reside in important art collections across the world. This book showcases nearly 150 of the most remarkable pieces among these, which date from the early 17th century to the early 20th century. These include some of India's earliest and finest kalamkaris as well as rare woven silks and velvets, most of which came from renowned Indian textile centres located across the subcontinent, as well as from Iran. The palace stores of Amber and Jaipur once housed not only the most spectacular royal tents of the period but also an impressive range of fine garments and accessories for the princes and other members of the royal household, many of which are showcased here for the first time. A lavishly illustrated survey of the entire Kachhwaha corpus, this book is the first comprehensive overview of the court textiles of any princely Indian state."--Publisher's website.

Ikonische Prägnanz
Westerkamp, Dirk, 1971-
Paderborn : Wilhelm Fink, 2015
Bilder stellen Handlungen, die Zeit verbrauchen, im flächigen Raum dar. Sie ziehen Ereignisse auf ihren prägnantesten Augenblick zusammen. Ikonische Prägnanz gründet in der Ökonomie dieses Entzugs. Ihre Kunst offenbart sich in dem, was sie nicht zeigt.0Ikonische Prägnanz meint die Verdichtung von Zeit- und Handlungsmomenten im Bild. Ihre Theorie verknüpft gestaltphilosophische Überlegungen zur 'symbolischen Prägnanz' (Cassirer) mit ikonologischen Untersuchungen des 'prägnantesten Augenblicks' (Lessing). In sechs pointierten Essays, deren Analysekriterien die programmatische Einleitung entwickelt, wird dieses nicht unumstrittene Konzept in der Deutung vormoderner Bildwerke erprobt. Ihre Sujets reflektieren unterschiedliche Zeitverhältnisse: die Entzeitlichung von Gegenwart, die Darstellung der Allgegenwart von Zeit, das Verschwinden des Augenblicks in der Zeit, schliesslich auch den Zusammenfall von historischer Zeit, Betrachtungszeit und Bildzeit.

editors, Tone Hansen, Ana María Bresciani ; authors, Alexander Alberro and thirteen others
Köln : Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, c2015
Looters, smugglers, and collectors: Provenance research and the market departs from and extends beyond the restitution case of Henri Matisse's "Blue Dress in a Yellow Armchair" (1937) to the heirs of collector Paul Rosenberg in March 2014 after sixty years in HOK's collection. The case was an impetus for a research project investigating the ownership history of artworks in the collection, and also for the publication which gathers seminal authors and artists who have developed the concept of provenance in different yet all extremely interesting perspectives. The book will context contributions by theorists and artists such as: Arjun Appadurai, Alexander Alberro, Wolfgang Ernst, Hans Haacke, Emmanuelle Polack, Uwe Fleckner, among others, as well as reprinting documentation material and artists contributions, some of it for the first time. The publication has obvious historical references to the looting and confiscation perpetrated by the Germans during World War II, but shows that similar acts are still occurring today as well, for example, the plundering and destruction of Palmyra in Syria.

David Blamey (Ed.)
London, United Kingdom : Open Editions, 2016
It is widely assumed that everyone is 'interdisciplinary' nowadays, that everyone works at the intersections of conventional disciplines. But if being flexible, multiskilled and polymathic are the prerequisites of survival in today?s world, why do educators and art marketeers tend to maintain conditions that advocate and encourage specialist outcomes? The aim of this new anthology in the Occasional Table series is to critically reflect upon the role of specialism in art and society. Why do some seek to transcend the parameters of specialization, and others maintain that deep levels of achievement can only be attained with highly focused methods and forms? 00Edited by David Blamey, Specialism includes texts by Matthew Cornford, Neil Cummings, Dan Fox, Anouchka Grose, Mingyuan Hu, Stephen Knott, Frances Loeffler, Nina Power, Rick Poynor, Alistair Rider, Andrew Robinson, Irit Rogoff and Ruth Sonderegger, Chris Watson, Jon Wozencroft and Ian Whittlesea.

"In 1929, Louise Nevelson was a disappointed housewife with a young son, surrounded by New York's vibrant artistic community but unable to fully engage with it. By 1950, she was an artist living on her own, financially dependent on her family, but she had received a glimmer of recognition from the establishment: inclusion in a group show at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In 1980, Nevelson celebrated her second Whitney retrospective. Her work was held in public collections around the world; her massive steel sculptures appeared in public spaces in seventeen states, including the Louise Nevelson Plaza in New York City's Financial District. The story of Nevelson's artistic, spiritual, even physical transformation (she developed a taste for outrageous outfits and false eyelashes made of mink) is dramatic, complex, and inseparable from major historical and cultural shifts of the twentieth century, particularly in the art world. Art historian and psychoanalyst Laurie Wilson brings a unique and sensitive perspective to Nevelson's story, drawing on hours of interviews she conducted with Nevelson and her circle. Over 100 images, many of them drawn from personal archives and never before published, make this the most visually and narratively comprehensive biography of this remarkable artist yet published." -- Publisher's description

sous la direction de Jérôme Neutres
Paris : Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, [2015]
"L'un et l'autre couturiers de métier, Jacques Doucet (1853-1929) et Yves Saint Laurent (1936-2008) furent également des collectionneurs de génie. À la recherche d'un certain absolu, ils ont tous deux créé des 'espaces-collections' dans leurs maisons, qui formaient des expositions inédites, de véritables installations artistiques. Créateurs de beauté, esthètes, ils ont chacun incarné le 'goût' dans leur époque. Brancusi, Braque, Chirico, Gray, Legrain, Matisse, Picasso... de nombreux artistes ont habité successivement leurs appartements-musées de la rue Saint-James et de la rue de Babylone. Croisements, rencontres, confrontations, les collections d'art constituées par Jacques Doucet et Yves Saint Laurent sont, par bien des aspects, des 'vases communicants', et c'est le mystère de cette transmission qui est au coeur de cet ouvrage. Les reproductions d'oeuvres prestigieuses et des vues des intérieurs et accrochages personnels des deux couturiers-collectionneurs permettent de plonger dans l'intimité de ces appartements devenus légendaires"--Back cover.

Of arms and artists : the American Revolution through painters' eyes
Staiti, Paul J., author
New York : Bloomsbury Press, 2016
Art and the American Revolution -- Charles Willson Peale's war -- Philadelphia's founding artist -- Benjamin West's peace -- John Singleton Copley's patriots -- John Adams' piece of vanity -- John Trumbull's martyrs -- Thomas Jefferson's invitation -- Gilbert Stuart's Washington -- John Trumbull's second act.

"The images accompanying the founding of the United States--of honored Founders, dramatic battle scenes, and seminal moments--gave visual shape to Revolutionary events and symbolized an entirely new concept of leadership and government. Since then they have endured as indispensable icons, serving as historical documents and timeless reminders of the nation's unprecedented beginnings. As Paul Staiti reveals in Of Arms and Artists, the lives of the five great American artists of the Revolutionary period--Charles Willson Peale, John Singleton Copley, John Trumbull, Benjamin West, and Gilbert Stuart--were every bit as eventful as those of the Founders with whom they continually interacted, and their works contributed mightily to America's founding spirit. Living in a time of breathtaking change, each in his own way came to grips with the history being made by turning to brushes and canvases, the results often eliciting awe and praise, and sometimes scorn. Ever since the passing of the last eyewitnesses to the Revolution, their imagery has connected Americans to 1776, allowing us to interpret and reinterpret the nation's beginning, generation after generation. The collective stories of these five artists open a fresh window on the Revolutionary era, making more human the figures we have long honored as our Founders, and deepening our understanding of the whirlwind out of which the United States emerged "--

Ignac Tirs (Ignacio Tirsch) was born in Bohemia, in 1733. He was ordained as priest by the Compañía de Jesus in 1759 and sent to New Spain to join the missions in Baja California. First, he arrived at the mission Nuestra Señora de Loreto. Three years later, he moved to the mission Santiago de los Coras, where he worked until 1768, one year after the expulsion of the Jesuits began. In 1763 and 1764, Provincial Father Francisco de Zevallos requested some data from several priests from California in order to write the human, vegetal, animal, and mineral history of the peninsula. This work presents for the first time the reproduction in color of Tirœs paintings as well as extensive studies of the author and his works that will help to reconstruct the work and activities that he carried out during his stay at different missions in Baja California.

The Prado : masterpieces
Museo Nacional del Prado ; translation, Philip Sutton
New York : Thames & Hudson, 2016
The Museo del Prado is the main Spanish national art museum, located in central Madrid. It features one of the world's finest collections of European art, based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, and is unquestionably the best single collection of Spanish art. Founded as a museum of paintings and sculpture in 1819, it also contains important collections of other types of works. The Prado is one of the most visited sites in the world. The numerous works by Francisco de Goya, the single most extensively represented artist, as well as by Diego Velázquez, El Greco, Titian, Peter Paul Rubens, and Hieronymus Bosch are some of the highlights of the collection. Comprehensively showcasing the museum's permanent collection, this magnificent book is the first of its kind to be published in association with the Prado, covering the collection from ancient sculpture to the nineteenth century. The book is arranged chronologically by the date of the artworks featured, creating a rich dialogue between artists from different schools working in the same period. There are sections looking in depth at specific painters (Velázquez, Titian, El Greco, and Bosch) and at the themes of still life, portraits, and religious paintings. The Prado: Masterpieces can be read as a complete history of Western art, as illustrated by the careful selection of highlights from the museum.s collection.

John Currin
essay by James Lawrence
Paris : Gagosian Gallery , [2016]
At once highly seductive and deeply perplexing, John Currin's paintings draw inspiration from such disparate areas as Old Master portraits, pinups, pornography, and B-movies. Consistent throughout his oeuvre, however, is his search for the point at which the beautiful and the grotesque hold each other in perfect balance, and this new book from Gagosian Gallery demonstrates just that. In his most recent work, Currin layers each canvas with multiple scenes, creating paintings within paintings. He paints idealized yet challengingly perverse images of women, from lusty nymphs and dour matrons to more ethereal feminine prototypes. While his eroticized subjects often exist at odds with the popular dialogue and politics of contemporary art, they entice viewers, and are reproduced here in stunning detail.

How does art work? How does it move us, inform us, challenge us? Internationally renowned painter David Salle's incisive essay collection illuminates the work of many of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Engaging with a wide range of Salle's friends and contemporaries-from painters to conceptual artists such as Jeff Koons, John Baldessari, Roy Lichtenstein, and Alex Katz, among others- 'How to See' explores not only the multilayered personalities of the artists themselves but also the distinctive character of their oeuvres. Salle writes with humor and verve, replacing the jargon of art theory with precise and evocative descriptions that help the reader develop a personal and intuitive engagement with art. The result: a master class on 'how to see' with an artist's eye.

Animism and shamanism in twentieth-century art : Kandinsky, Ernst, Pollock, Beuys
Firestone, Evan R., author
New York : Routledge, 2017
Wassily Kandinsky, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, and Joseph Beuys were the leading artists of their generations to recognize the rich possibilities that animism and shamanism offered. While each of these artists' connection with shamanism has been written about separately, Evan Firestone brings the four together in order to compare their individual approaches to anthropological materials and to define similarities and differences between them. The author's close readings of their works and examination of the relevant texts available to them reveal fresh insights and new perspectives.The importance of indigenous beliefs in animism for Kandinsky's philosophy of art and practice, especially the animism of inanimate objects, is analyzed for the first time in conjunction with his well-known enthusiasms for Symbolism and Theosophy. Ernst's collage novel, 'La femme 100 tetes' (1929), previously found to have significant alchemical content, also is shown to extensively utilize shamanism, thereby merging different branches of the occult that prove to have remarkable similarities. The in-depth examination of Pollock's works, both known and overlooked for shamanic content, identifies textual sources that heretofore have escaped notice. Firestone also demonstrates how shamanism was employed by this artist to express his desire for healing and transformation. The author further argues that the German edition of Mircea Eliade's 'Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy' (1957) helped to revitalize Beuys's life and art, and that his ecological campaigns reflected a new consciousness later termed ecoanimism.

Figural sculpture in eleventh-century Dalmatia and Croatia : patronage, architectural context, history
Skoblar, Magdalena, author
New York, NY : Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
Urban oligarchs: panels and patronage in the church of the Holy Dominica at Zadar -- The church of St Lawrence and the platea comunis at Zadar -- Royal patronage in the church of St Mary at Biskupija -- The rule of law: the church of SS Peter and Moses at Solin -- Regina and her screen: the church of St Michael on the island of Kolocep.

This is the first full-length, English-language study of eleventh-century figural sculpture produced in Dalmatia and Croatia. Challenging the dependency on stylistic analysis in previous scholarship, Magdalena Skoblar contextualises the visual presence of these relief carvings in their local communities, focusing on five critical sites. Alongside an examination of architectural setting and iconography, this book also investigates archaeological and textual evidence to establish the historical situation within which these sculptures were produced and received. Croatia and Dalmatia in the eleventh century were a borderland between Byzantium and the Latin west where the balance of power was constantly changing. These sculptures speak of the fragmented and hybrid nature of the Adriatic and the Mediterranean as a whole, where well-connected trade routes and porous boundaries informed artistic production. Moreover, in contrast to elsewhere in Europe where contemporary figural sculpture was spurred on by monastic communities, this book argues that the patronage of such artworks in Dalmatia and Croatia was driven by members of the local secular elites. 0For the first time, these sculptures are being introduced to Anglophone scholarship, and this book contributes to a fuller understanding of the profound changes in medieval attitudes towards sculpture after the year 1000.

Rethinking place in South Asian and Islamic art, 1500-present
edited by Deborah S. Hutton and Rebecca M. Brown
New York : Routledge, 2017
Place plays a fundamental role in the structuring of the discipline of Art History. And yet, place also limits the questions art historians can ask and impairs analysis of objects and locations in the interstices of established, ossified categories. The chapters in this interdisciplinary volume investigate place in all of its dynamism and complexity: several call into question traditional constructions regarding place in Art History, while others explore the fundamental role that place plays in lived experience. The particular nexus for this collection lies at the intersection and overlap of two major subfields in the history of art: South Asia and the Islamic world, both of which are seemingly geographically determined, yet at the same time uncategorizable as place with their ever-shifting and contested borders. The eleven chapters brought together here move from the early modern through to the contemporary, and span particular monuments and locations ranging from Asia and Europe to Africa and the Americas. 0The chapters take on the question of place as it operates in more obvious settings, such as architectural monuments and exhibitionary contexts, while also probing the way place operates when objects move or when the very place they exist in transforms dramatically. This volume engages place through the movement of objects, the evocation of senses, desires, and memories and the on-going project of articulating the parameters of place and location.

Paris : Gallimard, [2015]
"C'est avec les nymphes des tableaux de Botticelli et de Léonard de Vinci qu'Aby Warburg a réinventé notre façon de comprendre le monde des images. Il sera ici question de "mouvements émouvants", de draperies dans le vent, de "poursuites érotiques", de turbulences lucrétiennes et de "survivances de l'Antiquité" ... Mais également d'une relecture de ces notions historiques fondamentales que sont les "sources", les "influences" ou ce que l'on appelle les "courants" artistiques. Pour comprendre l'art et son histoire, il faudrait donc engager une véritable dynamique des fluides, qui est aussi celle des jeux entre mémoires et désirs que les images mettent en scène ... Et c'est aussi dans notre contemporanéité même que viendra s'observer la dynamique de cette longue durée, quand la figuration des mouvements du désir - tour à tour érotiques et mortifères - s'inscrit dans le milieu d'immanence des images elles-mêmes."--Page 4 of cover.

Ruby, sapphire & spinel : an archaeological, textual and cultural study
Content, Derek J
Turnhout : Brepols, c2016
pt. I. Text -- pt. II. The Babar-Content collection / photographs by Gonzalo Salcedo.

Until about two hundred years ago, no gemological distinction was made between ruby and spinel. Red spinel and red ruby are not infrequently found together and though gem cutters and engravers noticed and commented on the difference in hardness, the assumption was that spinel was simply an "unripe" version of ruby. Additionally, ruby and sapphire are both versions of the mineral corundum, distinguished only by color and minute traces of the metal oxides that caused these different colors. Sapphires may be pink, yellow, and green as well as blue, while rubies come in many shades of red which, inevitably causes confusion as one person's pale red ruby is another's pink sapphire--there are no absolutes. Consequently, the nomenclature is confused, both within early texts, and also in later translations of those texts. The ancient authors could only report on the basis of the information available to them at the time, while those writing the later translations were fine textual scholars or epigraphers, but not infrequently poor gemologists, not familiar with the mineralogical distinctions between the gems. It has often been difficult to get an overarching view of the many different factors that all played a part in the spread of precious gems and of the dissemination of knowledge about them. Given the paucity of available information concentrating exclusively on the use of ancient precious gemstones, the author combed the literature for relevant references. A surprising amount of descriptive and factual information was found, mostly scattered throughout early texts. The most interesting passages were selected and wherever possible the original authors' words were quoted rather than paraphrased. The early translations in the languages used by 17th-19th century scholars are given, names of people, places or objects that otherwise might have remained obscure are explained. Gems travel. They follow wealth and because of their natural immutability, the only way they can be identified by culture is by the way man has affected their appearance, deliberately or accidentally. The dating of gems that are still in original period settings is easier because the dated typology of rings and jewelry settings generally, is more secure than the study of gem shapes, while the study and dating of specific faceting styles of unmounted stones is still in its infancy.

Textile and dress production, from raw materials to finished items, has had a significant impact on society from its earliest history. The essays in this volume offer a fresh insight into the emerging interdisciplinary research field of textile and dress studies by discussing archaeological, iconographical and textual evidence within a broad geographical and chronological spectrum. The thirteen chapters explore issues, such as the analysis of textile tools, especially spindle whorls, and textile imprints for reconstructing textile production in contexts as different as Neolithic Transylvania, the Early Bronze Age North Aegean and the Early Iron Age Eastern Mediterranean; the importance of cuneiform clay tablets as a documentary source for both drawing a detailed picture of the administration of a textile industry and for addressing gender issues, such as the construction of masculinity in the Sumerian kingdoms of the 3rd millennium BC; and discussions of royal and priestly costumes and clothing ornaments in the Mesopotamian kingdom of Mari and in Mycenaean culture. Textile terms testify to intensive exchanges between Semitic and Indo-European languages, especially within the terminology of trade goods. The production and consumption of textiles and garments are demonstrated in 2nd millennium Hittite Anatolia; from 1st millennium BC Assyria, a cross-disciplinary approach combines texts, realia and iconography to produce a systematic study of golden dress decorations; and finally, the important discussion of fibres, flax and wool, in written and archaeological sources is evidence for delineating the economy of linen and the strong symbolic value of fibre types in 1st millennium Babylonia and the Southern Levant. The volume is part of a pair together with Greek and Roman Textiles and Dress: An Interdisciplinary Anthology edited by Mary Harlow and Marie-Louise Nosch.

Roland Penrose : the life of a surrealist
King, James, 1942- author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2016]
"As an artist, an impresario, a biographer and a collector, Roland Penrose (1900-1984) is a key figure in the study of art in England from 1920 to 1984. In the first biography of Penrose, acclaimed biographer James King explores the intricacies of Penrose's life and work tracing the profound effects of his upbringing in a Quaker household on his values, the early influence of Roger Fry, his friendships with Max Ernst, Andre Breton and other surrealists, especially Paul Eluard, his organization of the landmark International Surrealist Exhibition in the summer of 1936, his conflicted relationship with Pablo Picasso, and his tireless promotion of surrealism as well as the production of his own surrealist art. With a deftness of touch, King traces Penrose's complex professional and personal lives, including his pacifism, his work as a biographer - including his outstanding life of Picasso as well as those of Miro, Man Ray, and Tapies - and as an art historian, as well as his unconventionality, especially in his two marriages including that to Lee Miller - and his numerous love affairs."--Jacket.

Figural philology : Panofsky and the science of things
Efal, Adi, author
New York : Bloomsbury Academic, 2016
"Though inspired by a Panofskyan legacy, this book diverges at certain points from Erwin Panofsky's declared objectives, and calls attention to several of aspects that were until now less accentuated in his intellectual reception. Insisting on the importance of iconology as a method for art history and the humanities in general, it shows how examining this promotes a cooperation between the history of art and the history of philosophy. It discusses whether Panofsky's method could be of use for general questions in the epistemology of the historical sciences that examine human works. How could and should one approach a historical inquiry of human-produced things, after the Kantian revolution has taken its toll on the humanities, and forbidden the approach to things "as themselves"? Within the core of the discipline of art history, and certainly in its iconological version, there is a philological kernel to be found. This could assist in addressing the historical meaning of artworks from a realist point of view. This preliminary hypothesis shows the work of Panofsky to share affinities with twentieth-century romance philology. A reading of Panofsky's work alongside the philological enterprise of Erich Auerbach and several other authors demonstrates that a proper appropriation of the philological impulse by art historical method can supply a way out of the methodological antimony still hanging between hyper-formalist and hyper-theoretical approaches to the history of art. Distilling Panofsky's writings, Efal selects the elements that could be useful for philosophy" -- back cover.

Chaz Bojórquez
Bojórquez, Chaz, artist
Claremont, California : Zero+ Publishing, 2016
"Legendary artist Chaz Bojórquez is a student of the world and an American treasure all at once. In this stunning monograph, Bojórquez's artistic progression is revealed one decade at a time, beginning in the 1970s. His early interest in Los Angeles's native 'Cholo' style graffiti writing was later tempered by his work in Asian Calligraphy and his studies at Chouinard Art Institute. As the book unfolds through the decades, the diversity and range of Bojórquez's work becomes evident: street graffiti, paintings, logos, type intensive graphic design work and forays into cinema and fashion are all executed to the highest level. The illustrations are accompanied by fascinating stories about how Chaz started as an artist and includes an in-depth interview with Amanda Erlanson. Los Angeles art critic Peter Frank also contributes an essay in the telling of this artist's fascinating life story"--Publisher's description.

Sarah Sze
Enwezor, Okwui, interviewer
New York, NY : Phaidon Press Ltd., [2016]
The first substantial monograph on an artist whose sculptures capture the proliferation of information and objects in contemporary life. Sarah Sze (b. Boston, 1969, lives and works in New York) has developed a sculptural aesthetic that transforms space through radical shifts in scale, colonizing peripheral spaces, engaging with the history of a building, and altering the viewer's perception and experience of architecture through large, site-specific interventions. Known for her unexpected and carefully arranged combinations of materials, from cotton buds and tea bags to water bottles and ladders, light bulbs and electric fans, Sze has presented ephemeral installations that penetrate walls, suspend from ceilings and burrow into the ground. Her work exists at the intersection of sculpture, drawing and architecture where her formal interest in light, air and movement is coupled with an intuitive understanding of colour and texture. Like the scientific instruments of measurement they often reference, Sze's sculptures attempt to quantify and organize the universe, ascribing a fragile, personal system of order. Within her practice, sculpture becomes both a device for organizing and dismantling information and a mechanism to locate and dislocate oneself in time and space. Sze received a BA from Yale University in Connecticut in 1991 and an MFA from New York's School of Visual Arts in 1997. She is represented by Tanya Bonakdar in New York and Victoria Miro in London. In 2013 she represented the United States at the 55th Venice Biennale. She was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellows Program Genius Grant in 2003 and of the AICA Award for Best Project in a Public Space in 2012.

Le Corbusier et le dessin : "ce labeur secret"
Pauly, Danièle
Lyon : Fage Editions, c2015
Si l'on considère les différents aspects de l'œuvre corbuséenne, en regard de son activité d'architecte - abondamment diffusée et commentée - et de ses activités de théoricien, d'homme de lettres et de peintre, la production graphique est demeurée plutôt secrète et elle est encore peu connue du public. Pourtant elle donne à comprendre la genèse de l'œuvre, tant plastique qu'architecturale ; et ce sont quelques huit mille dessins qui en constituent le corpus et jalonnent toute la production, depuis les années 1902-1903, à La Chaux-de-Fonds, jusqu'à la fin, à Cap Martin, en 1965. La diffusion du corpus des dessins d'art de Le Corbusier est envisagée sous la forme d'une anthologie. L'ouvrage est fondé sur l'analyse historique de l'œuvre graphique et sur les écrits de l'artiste (journal intime, lettres, articles, textes théoriques).

Imagining into Another / John Elderfield -- Making Matisse His Own: Richard Diebenkorn's Early Abstractions and Figurative Paintings / Janet Bishop -- Breaking All the Rules: The Drawings of Richard Diebenkorn and Henri Matisse / Jodi Roberts -- Richard Diebenkorn and Matisse, from Russia to Ocean Park / Katherine Rothkopf -- Richard Diebenkorn's Library: A Bibliography of Matisse Publications / Janet Bishop, Jared Ledesma, Katherine Rothkopf.

" This sumptuously illustrated book brings together the work of Henri Matisse and Richard Diebenkorn as never before, illuminating unexpected resonances that connect the two artists across time and space. Featuring stunning pairings of more than 80 paintings and drawings, this book charts the evolution of Matisse's impact on Diebenkorn over the course of Diebenkorn's career. Though they never met, Matisse was an enduring source of inspiration for the Californian artist, and their works share surprising similarities in subject, composition, palette, and technique. Essays by Janet Bishop and Katherine Rothkopf explore how this influence evolved over time, connecting the work of the two painters and highlighting the ways Diebenkorn drew from Matisse's example to forge a style entirely his own. The volume is rounded out by an introduction by John Elderfield, who knew Diebenkorn personally and has curated exhibitions of both artists' work; an essay by Jodi Roberts on parallels between the artists' drawings; and a bibliography documenting Diebenkorn's collection of books about the French artist. The first in-depth examination of the relationship between the work of Diebenkorn and Matisse, this publication offers new ways of understanding both artists. "--
