Understanding painting : from Giotto to Warhol
Rynck, Patrick de, 1963- author
Belgium : Ludion, 
Old masters -- modern masters.
"This is the guide to Western art that every art lover has always wanted. Great paintings, filled with complex themes and symbols, can be intimidating. Here, Patrick De Rynck and Jon Thompson explore more than 300 famous works spanning the Middle Ages to the late 20th century, unlocking each work's meaning. Today's art lovers lack the intimate knowledge of Greek and Roman mythology, folklore, and Christian theology that was so well-known to medieval and Renaissance artists and their public. Likewise, modern and contemporary art can baffle even sophisticated viewers. With brief yet illuminating explanations and more than 1,000 color reproductions--including many close-up details--of works by artists from Giotto, Botticelli, El Greco, Rubens, and Vermeer to Bonnard, Degas, Whistler, Van Gogh, Picasso, Hopper, Warhol, and Basquiat, this book provides the means to interpret and better enjoy these and many other works of art"--Amazon.com.

Habitat : vernacular architecture for a changing planet
edited by Sandra Piesik
New York, NY : Abrams, 2017
Materials Science."Vernacular architecture is architecture without architects; designed based on local needs, these buildings make use of natural resources and demonstrate diverse architectural forms, design elements unique to their culture, and ingenious construction techniques. From bamboo garden pavilions in China to homes made from reeds in southern Iraq, and mud dwellings in Mali to pine huts in Siberia, Habitat showcases the diverse and indigenous materials that can be used to build innovative, sustainable structures. The core of Habitat is arranged by climate zone, from desert to tropical, temperate to arctic. Within each section, buildings are presented regionally, showing how local climatic conditions and vegetation affect the evolution of building styles. Complete with a range of essays exploring the economic and anthropological aspects, as well as a reference section with information on materials science and engineering, Habitat offers real-world insights into sustainable buildings and stresses the importance of preserving disappearing craftsmanship and local knowledge."--

"This is a revelatory reassessment of one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century: Charles White (1918-1979) is best known for bold, large-scale paintings and drawings of African Americans, meticulously executed works that depict human relationships and socioeconomic struggles with a remarkable sensitivity. This comprehensive study offers a much-needed reexamination of the artist's career and legacy. With handsome reproductions of White's finest paintings, drawings, and prints, the volume introduces his work to contemporary audiences, reclaims his place in the art-historical narrative, and stresses the continuing relevance of his insistent dedication to producing positive social change through art. Tracing White's career from his emergence in Chicago to his mature practice as an artist, activist, and educator in New York and Los Angeles, leading experts provide insights into White's creative process, his work as a photographer, his political activism and interest in history, the relationship between his art and his teaching, and the importance of feminism in his work. A preface by Kerry James Marshall addresses White's significance as a mentor to an entire generation of practitioners and underlines the importance of this largely overlooked artist"--

Cloud & crystal : the Dorothee and Konrad Fischer collection
exhibition and catologue by Anette Kruszynski ; with contributions by Dietmar Elger and seven others ; with artist texts by Nóra Lukács, Ulrike Schmitt, Angela Wenzel ; translation, Amy Klement, Steven Lindberg
Bielefeld : Kerber Verlag, 
The turning away from the picture is one of the biggest upheavals in the art history of the 20th century. Conceptual Art took the place of figural painting. This is also underscored by the important role that the Düsseldorf gallerist and collector Konrad Fischer played in the international art scene starting in the 1960s. Konrad Fischer established his gallery, which he developed into one of the most influential galleries in the world, in 1967. He represented artists of Minimal and Conceptual Art such as Carl Andre, Joseph Beuys, Hanne Darboven, Hamish Fulton, Sol LeWitt, Richard Long, or Bruce Nauman. The gallery gained art-historical importance above all through exhibiting American artists, and thus contributed to making Düsseldorf into a hotspot for contemporary art. The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer's significant life's work.

Sean Scully : Vita Duplex
Scully, Sean, 1945- artist
Berlin, Germany : Hatje Cantz, 
"Sean Scully, one of the most important aritsts of our time, allows conflict to be carried out in his works--conflict between structure and emotion, body and spirit, impulsivity and reflection. The Irish-American painter has been reinterpreting abstract art since the 1960s, not as a purely formal exploration of color, form, planes, structure, body, and light, but as a medium whose means of expression is tied to external and internal moods, literary influences, and physical experiences. Scully has articulated his attitude in many lectures, interviews, and texts, which comprise the starting point for the exhibition Vita Duplex. With 140 illustrations, the eponymous catalogue provides a comprehensive look at the artist's visual oeuvre, as well as his world of ideas, and defines its place in the history of abstract painting."

Vittorio Zecchin : transparent glass for Cappellin and Venini
Zecchin, Vittorio, 1878-1947, artist
Milano : Skira Editore S.p.A., 2017
"Vittorio Zecchin: Transparent Glass for Cappellin and Venini presents, for the first time, the entire glass production of Murano painter and glassmaker Vittorio Zecchin (1878-1947) at the two storied glassworks. Between 1921 and 1925, Zecchin served as artistic director of the V.S.M. Cappellin Venini & Company glassworks, founded in 1921 by the Venetian antiquarian Giacomo Cappellin and the young Milanese lawyer Paolo Venini to offer a sophisticated, modern style of glass production. Responding to the demands of the firm and its customers, Zecchin created startlingly modern monochrome blown-glass pieces with extraordinary colors and elegant, minimal lines, a radically new style for glass that marked a decisive turning point in the 20th-century history of Murano. Vittorio Zecchin: Transparent Glass for Cappellin and Venini reconstructs for the first time the entire collection of transparent blown-glass pieces designed by Zecchin between 1921 and 1926, first for Cappellin and Venini and then for Cappellin alone. It includes a sequence of about 900 luminous objects (from vases to compote bowls, from table services to chandeliers), painstakingly identified following rigorous research, and extensively illustrated here with new photography, plus a selection of largely unpublished period photographs and drawings. A major contribution to the history of design, this volume casts new light on the modernist master of Murano glass."--provided by publisher.

Fashion drive : extreme clothing in the visual arts
Cathérine Hug and Christoph Becker ; editing: Cathérine Hug, Carlotta Graedel Matthäi, Franziska Lentzsch
Zurich, Switzerland : Kunsthaus Zurich, 
A journey through circa 500 years of fashion history as reflected in art: how have artists reacted to extreme phenomena such as slashed clothing, codpieces, the crinoline, or the dinner jacket? Fashion is an economic factor as well as a seismograph of social sensitivities, an expression of longing, and an instrument for mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion. In the modern age of global homogenization through "fast fashion," this exhibition aims to provide a critical and at the same time sensory overview of clothing in art and the problematic and subversive moments in the history of fashion through the techniques of painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, and film.

Late Gothic painting in the Crown of Aragon and the Hispanic kingdoms
edited by Alberto Velasco, Francesc Fité
Boston : Brill, 
This book aims to analyze the genesis and evolution of late Gothic painting in the Crown of Aragon and the rest of the Hispanic kingdoms, examining this phenomenon in relation to the whole context of Europe in the second half of the fifteenth century. The authors consider the influence of the Flemish primitive movement on the art produced by their Spanish colleagues, the artistic relations and interchanges with the Netherlands and other countries, and the introduction and development of the Flemish language in the Spanish kingdoms. The book also examines altarpieces, considering topics such as changes in shape and structure and liturgical links, along with offering stylistic analyses supported by new technologies.

"After decades of art collecting, prominent Washington, D.C. based activist, philanthropist, and founder of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Peggy Cooper Cafritz had amassed one of the most important collections of contemporary African American art in the country. But in 2009, the more than 300 works that composed this extraordinary collection were destroyed in the largest residential fire in Washington, D.C. history. The pioneering collection included work by Kara Walker, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley, Barkley Hendricks, David Hammons, Chris Ofili, and Carrie Mae Weems, among many others. This beautifully illustrated volume features 200 of the works that were lost, along with works that she has collected since the fire, as well as important contributions by preeminent curators and artists." -- Provided by publisher.

texts by Bill Arning, Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, Daniel Baumann, Robert Buck, Johanna Burton, Wade Guyton, Rem Koolhaas, Heidi Zuckerman
Zürich, Switzerland : Kunstalle Zürich, 
New York based artist Cheryl Donegan (born 1962) is well known for her integration of performance and video with painting and installation, and her subversive spin on issues pertaining to gender, sex and art. This first substantial survey of her work, published for her 2018 traveling exhibition, examines her paintings, and includes new, highly conceptual work that continues to transgress traditional media, often merging painting with fashion and appropriated imagery gleaned from pop culture. Exhibition: Kunsthaus Zürich, Switzerland (26.08.-12.11.2017) / Aspen Art Museum, U.S.A. (29.06.-16.12.2018) / Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, U.S.A. (18.01.-31.03.2019).

Bellini / Mantegna : masterpieces face-to-face : The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple
curated by Brigit Blass-Simmen, Neville Rowley, Giovanni Carlo Federico Villa
Cinisello Balsamo (Milano) : Silvana Editoriale, 
Becoming Bellini and maintaining Mantegna : the art of repetition / Caroline Campbell -- Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini : Presentations in dialogue / Giovanni C. F. Villa -- One cartoon - two paintings / Brigit Blass-Simmen -- Critical fortunes and worldly vicissitudes of Andrea Mantegna's Presentation of Jesus at the Temple, now at Gemäldegalerie in Berlin / Neville Rowley -- Presentation of Jesus at the Temple by Giovanni Bellini : a family painting at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia / Babet Trevisan -- Andrea Mantegna's and Giovanni Bellini's Presentation of Jesus at the Temple : the gensis and a technological comparison of both works / Babette Hartwieg -- Album -- Appendix : -- Giovanni Bellini : a biography / Giovanni C. F. Villa -- Andrea Mantegna : a biography / Giovanni C. F. Villa.
Giovanni Bellini, 'one of the great Italian poets' in the words of Roberto Longhi, and Andrea Mantegna, he who 'sculpted [the image] alive and real in his painting' in the sonnet by Ulisse degli Aleotti, were two giants in the history of Western art -- extremely distant in character, certainly, yet connected by deep family ties. Nicolosia -- Jacopo Bellini's daughter and thus half-sister to Giovanni -- married Mantegna in 1453. This marriage engendered one of the most fascinating pictorial dialogues of the Quattrocento, as they both developed the motif of The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple. A pair of works exhibited side-by-side for the very first time, half a millennium after they were painted. An extraordinary event narrated down to the last detail in this volume, through a riveting analysis of the paintings themselves and of the relationship between the two artists. Exhibition: Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice, Italy (21.03.-01.07.2018).

Siete memoriales españoles en defensa del arte de la pintura
edición de Antonio Sánchez Jiménez, Adrián J. Sáez ; con estudios y notas complementarias de Juan Luis González García, Antonio Urquízar Herrera
Frankfurt : Vervuert, 2018
Uno de los fenómenos más característicos del llamado Siglo de Oro espanol fue el enorme salto cualitativo que experimentaron en el país tanto la práctica de la pintura como la consideración social de esa actividad y de los que la profesaban. Dentro de la rica hermandad de las artes en el citado período, brilla la colaboración de artistas y poetas en defensa de la nobleza de la pintura, en una polémica que mezcla cuestiones estéticas, económicas y sociales. Este libro presenta por prímera vez una edición crítíca del Memorial informatorio de los pintores (1629), una empresa colectiva en la que participan primeras plumas de la época que se estudia desde diferentes perspectivas. Como apéndice se acompana de la preciosa silva "Si cuanto fue posible en lo imposibles" de Lope de Vega, que ve la luz en los Diálogos de la pintura (1633).

Toward a concrete utopia : architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948-1980
Stierli, Martino, 1974- author
New York, N.Y. : The Museum of Modern Art, 
Situated between the capitalist West and the socialist East, Yugoslavia's architects responded to contradictory demands and influences, developing a postwar architecture both in line with and distinct from the design approaches seen elsewhere in Europe and beyond. The architecture that emerged from International Style skyscrapers to Brutalist social condensers is a manifestation of the radical diversity, hybridity, and idealism that characterized the Yugoslav state itself. 'Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948-1980' introduces the exceptional work of socialist Yugoslavia's leading architects to an international audience for the first time, highlighting a significant yet thus-far understudied body of modernist architecture, whose forward-thinking contributions still resonate today. Exhibition: The Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA (15.07.2018-13.01.2019).

Canova, Tiziano e la Basilica dei Frari a Venezia nell'Ottocento = Canova, Titian and the Church of Frari in Venice in the 19th century
a cura di Elena Catra, Isabella Collavizza e Vittorio Pajusco ; testi di Adolfo Bernardello and eight others
Treviso : ZeL edizioni, 
Sono le testimonianze della storiografia artistica contemporanea a restituirci l'immagine più autentica della Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari che il presente volume vuole indagare nella sua veste ottocentesca, quale luogo ideale per la costruzione dei cenotafi a celebrazione di due illustri nomi dell'arte veneziana: il pittore Tiziano Vecellio e lo scultore Antonio Canova. Nello stesso arco temporale la tavola dell'Assunta di Tiziano, passando dalla Chiesa alle Gallerie dell'Accademia, viene consacrata come il capolavoro assoluto della pittura rinascimentale veneta, monito per studenti, docenti e visitatori del Museo. Attorno a queste tre manufatti, l'Assunta di Tiziano, Il Monumento a Antonio Canova e il Monumento a Tiziano Vecellio, ruotano i saggi presenti nel volume che approfondiscono nel dettaglio: l'aspetto storico-culturale della Basilica e di Venezia nella prima metà del XIX secolo, la fortuna di Antonio Canova a Venezia nell'Ottocento, la genesi e la realizzazione dei due Monumenti scultorei, le vicissitudini dell'Assunta di Tiziano tra Ottocento e Novecento e la fortuna dell'immagine della Chiesa nelle fotografia e nella guidistica del tempo. Particolare attenzione è stata data al corredo iconografico composto di riproduzioni di incisioni, dipinti, fotografie, cartoline provenienti da collezioni pubbliche e private spesso inedite.

Testament of the spirit : paintings by Eduardo Carrillo
Carrillo, Eduardo, 1937-1997, artist
Sacramento, California : Crocker Art Museum, 
"Eduardo Carrillo's artwork has been described as mystical, realistic, surreal, and visionary. His imagery, whether grounded in the everyday world or infused with magical realism, reflects his relationship to his native California and to his Mexican heritage, as well as his early religious upbringing and his respect for European traditions in art. An inspirational leader who actively challenged racism and injustice, Carrillo created programs and platforms that promoted greater awareness of Latin American culture, aesthetics, and social concerns, signficantly advancing the recognition and appreciation of Chicano art and culture in California. 'Testament of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo' highlights the creative efforts and social importance of Carrillo as an artist, teacher, scholar, and social activist. It showcases work created for three distinct realms: the public, the private, and the museum. Carrillo's murals (several of which were dismantled or destroyed but are documented in archival images) demonstrate his social and political concerns as well as his struggles; his intimate watercolors and paintings describe his everyday life, in the form of self-portraits, still lifes, and images of people and places he held dear; and his large-scale visionary paintings-Carillo's masterpieces-reveal his complex and creative mind." = "El arte de Eduardo Carrillo ha sido descrito como místico, realista, surrealista y visionario. Sus imágenes, ya sean basadas en el mundo cortidiano o infundidas de realismo mágico, reflejan su relación con su California natal y su herencia mexicana, así como su educación religiosa temprana y su respeto por las tradiciones artísticas europeas. Un líder inspirador que desafió activamente el racismo y la injusticia, Carrillo creó programas y plataformas que promovieron una mayor conciencia de la cultura, estética y preocupaciones sociales latinoamericanas, avanzando significativamente el reconocimiento y aprecio del arte y la cultura chicanos en California. 'Testamento del espíritu: Pinturas de Eduardo Carrillo' destaca los esfuerzos creativos y la importancia social de Carrillo como artista, maestro, estudioso y activista social. Destaca las obras creadas para tres ámbitos distintos: el público, el privado y el museo. Los murales de Carrillo (varios de los cuales fueron desmantelados o destruidos pero que están documentados en imágenes de archivo) demuestran sus preocupaciones sociales y políticas, así como sus luchas; sus acuarelas y pinturas íntimas describen su vida cotidiana en forma de autorretratos, naturalezas muertas e imágenes de personas y lugares por él queridos; y sus pinturas visionarias a gran escala-las obras maestras de Carrillo-revelan su compleja y creativa mente"

In 'One Hand Clapping', five artists from Greater China--Cao Fei, Duan Jianyu, Lin Yilin, Wong Ping and Samson Young--explore the ways in which globalization affects our understanding of the future. From a film shot at the industrial facilities of mainland China to a virtual reality intervention into the Guggenheim's iconic rotunda and musical compositions for imaginary instruments that defy the laws of physics, these works examine our systems of exchange, communication and production, and engage creatively with the future as a form of poetic revolution. Essays by the exhibition's organizers, Xiaoyu Weng and Hou Hanru, are joined by a theoretical text on technology and culture by the philosopher Yuk Hui, selected poems by millennial poets and sections presenting materials related to the commissioning process for each of the artists.

"Paul Delvaux. Maître du rêve invite à une exploration unique dans l'univers artistique de l'un des plus importants peintres belges surréalistes du XXe siècle. Peuplé de squelettes, de temples antiques déserts et glacés, de femmes impassibles et silencieuses, de couples ambigus, de gares désertées, de trains ou de trams fantomatiques ..., le monde singulier et envoûtant de Paul Delvaux se déploie tel un curieux petit théâtre des rêves les plus intimes sous le regard fasciné des spectateurs. Rassemblant une sélection d'oeuvres majeures issues essentiellement d'une collection particulière belge et agrémentées de quelques pièces clefs issues de musées de Belgique, cet ouvrage met en lumière une production artistique aussi mystérieuse que prolifique révélant la force poétique, la richesse et la liberté créatrice d'un surréaliste atypique."--Page 4 of cover.

edited by Ralf Beil & Uta Ruhkamp
Berlin : Hatje Cantz, 
How do female Indian artists position themselves today? How do they deal with their responsibilities to society, as well as with the legacy of their feminist predecessors? What kind of language do they invent to express that which has been unarticulated? In Facing India, six female Indian artists devote themselves not only to the history and future of India, but also to their country in the present day. Torn between tradition and the modern world, India's patriarchal society is in the midst of a socio-cultural transformation. In their multimedia works Vibha Galhotra (*1978), Bharti Kher (*1969), Prajakta Potnis (*1980), Reena Saini Kallat (*1973), Mithu Sen (*1971), and Tejal Shah (*1979) examine boundaries--a central theme in Indian society, whether they are gender-related limitations, or political, territorial, ecological, or religious boundaries. This richly illustrated publication accompanies the first thematic exhibition of Indian women artists in Germany.

The paintings of Hendrick Goltzius : (1558-1617) : a monograph and catalogue raisonné
Nichols, Lawrence W
Doornspijk : Davaco, 2013
This long-awaited volume is a comprehensive study of the paintings of Hendrick Goltzius (1558-1617), the most important artist in the Netherlands at the turn of the seventeenth century. A poem published in Haarlem in 1617 lamented the death that year of the most artful master Hendrick Goltzius, in his life [a] skillful painter, draftsman, and artful engraver. The fact that "painter" heads the list of his accomplishments is significant, for although Goltzius enjoyed international fame as a draughtsman and engraver, to his contemporaries he was equally renowned for his skill in the art of painting, which was considered the highest artistic calling. This volume on his paintings, the first since Hirschmann's short study of 1916, finally completes a full assessment of this artist of Haarlem, whose drawings were the subject of Reznicek's publication of 1961 and whose prints were catalogued by Leesberg in the New Hollstein series that appeared in 2012.

A clear and accurate study regarding the life and work of artist Nahui Olin (María del Carmen Mondragón Valseca, 1893-1978), a pioneer woman who, during the first half of the 20th century, experimented with a wide variety of artistic genres such as poetry, literature, performance, music and, particularly, painting. The exhibition will unravel the creative brilliance implicit in the work of this unique artist who was relegated from the historiographic studies, for she wasn't completely understood in all of her dimension, causing the oblivion of her artistic legacy. "The catalog that the reader holds in his hands documents the exhibition and brings together the work of the muse that explored musical and literary creation, painting and photography, science and sexuality as well as being considered the first caricaturist woman in Mexico" (HKB Translation) --Page 5.

Eine graphische Revolution : der italienische Farbholzschnitt des 16. Jahrunderts
herausgegeben von Thomas Ketelsen
Köln : Wallraf-Richartz-Museum [2018?]
Kaum eine andere Drucktechnik hat die graphische Kunst so intensiv und nachhaltig beeinflusst wie die Erfindung des Farbholzschnittes durch den italienischen Künstler Ugo da Carpi aus dem Jahr 1516. Nach Jahrhunderten des einfachen Holzschnittdrucks bot die sogenannte Chiaroscuro-Technik völlig neue, expressive Ausdrucksformen. Endlich war es den Künstlern möglich, unter Verwendung von unterschiedlich geschnittenen Holzstücken eine Hell-Dunkel-Modulation mit sensibler Farbgestaltung zu erzeugen. Die Graphische Sammlung des Wallraf-Richartz-Museums besitzt eine Vielzahl von Farbholzschnitten und zeigt sie nun erstmals als ein Ensemble: 'Eine graphische Revolution - Der italienische Farbholzschnitt des 16. Jahrhunderts' vereint mehr als 30 Blätter von bekannten Holzschneidern wie Ugo da Carpi, Antonio da Trento oder Andrea Andriani.

Tarsila do Amaral : inventing modern art in Brazil

Tarsila do Amaral: Devouring Modernist Narratives / Stephanie D'Alessandro and Luis Pérez-Oramas -- A negra, Avaporu, and Tarsilia's Anthropophagy / Stephanie D'Alessandro -- Tarsila, Melancholic Cannibal / Luis Pérez-Oramas
"An exploration of the innovative, quintessentially Brazilian painter who merged modernism with the brilliant energy and culture of her homeland Tarsila do Amaral (1886-1973) was a central figure at the genesis of modern art in her native Brazil, and her influence reverberates throughout 20th- and 21s-century art. Although relatively little-known outside Latin America, her work deserves to be understood and admired by a wide contemporary audience. This publication establishes her rich background in European modernism, which included associations in Paris with artists Fernand Léger and Constantin Brancusi, dealer Ambroise Vollard, and poet Blaise Cendrars. Tarsila (as she is known affectionately in Brazil) synthesized avant-garde aesthetics with Brazilian subjects, creating stylized, exaggerated figures and landscapes inspired by her native country that were powerful emblems of the Brazilian modernist project known as Antropofagía. Featuring a selection of Tarsila's major paintings, this volume conveys her vital role in the emerging modern-art scene of Brazil, the community of artists and writers (including poets Oswald de Andrade and Mário de Andrade) with whom she explored and developed a Brazilian modernism, and how she was subsequently embraced as a national cultural icon. At the same time, an analysis of Tarsila's legacy questions traditional perceptions of the 20th-century art world and asserts the significant role that Tarsila and others in Latin America had in shaping the global trajectory of modernism"--

Drawing after architecture : Renaissance architectural drawings and their reception
Yerkes, Carolyn, author
[Venice] : Marsilio, 
Introduction -- Ancients -- Tactics and techniques -- Paleography as topography -- Images and evidence -- Moderns -- Chronological condensation -- Representation as architecture -- Drawing as biography -- Conclusion.
"Why did early modern architects continue copying drawings long after the invention of print should have made such copying obsolete? Carolyn Yerkes answers that question in a fresh investigation into the status of architectural drawing in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Drawing after Architecture: Renaissance Architectural Drawings and Their Reception investigates the status of architectural drawing after the invention of print and explores a vast group of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century manuscripts and collections of drawings that are each part of a larger network of copies. Made by French and Italian draftsmen who studied Roman monuments, the drawings contain information about the buildings buildings that include the most important ancient and modern works, the Pantheon and Saint Peter s that is not known from any other sources. But the information that the drawings preserve is only part of their value: the drawings also show how that information was recorded, transferred, and analysed by other draftsmen. In the sixteenth century, survey drawing was the key mechanism through which the material past was understood, and many sixteenth- and seventeenth-century drawings after ancient architecture are extant. Ultimately, this book pursues the nature of architectural evidence, in that it asks how Renaissance architects used images to explore structures, to create biographies, and to write history."--

Foreword / Harald Falckenberg -- Mike Kelley. 0.0002% Completed/99.9998% Remaining / Harald Falckenberg.
"Mike Kelley's 'Arenas' series of the late 80s and early 90s mark a shift away from the artist's performance-oriented activity and towards a new sculptural dexterity, in which cultural resonance is elicited from an eerie reframing of everyday objects. First exhibited in 1990 at Metro Pictures, the 'Arenas' are comprised of stuffed animals arranged around the edges of blankets (or occasionally posed isolate in their center). Ten or twenty such toys in such groupings might convey a cheery childhood picnic scenario, but Kelley rarely selects more than five or six, and places them carefully so that their cuddliness and their capacity to comfort is entirely canceled out. Instead, we encounter the toy as a commodity entity-a mass-manufactured product positioned to enter into play but far from inviting it. Skarstedt's exhibition of seven of the eleven 'Arenas' is here recorded in superb installation shots and with critical commentary"--From publisher.

Gerhard Richter : 100 self-portraits, 1993
Richter, Gerhard, 1932-
Köln : Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, c2018
For the subscription edition of "Schriften und Interviews", that was published by Insel Verlag in 1993 in an edition of 100 copies, Richter drew a 23.5 x 17.7 cm "self-portrait" in pencil on the back of a portrait photograph at the front of the book. Enthused by his work, he produced a further 94 signed and dated self-portraits between the 3rd of September and the 12th of December 1993 on loose leaves, which are published here for the first time. It is when they are seen together as a series that this brilliant exercise becomes impressive. Despite the means of production being largely the same or similar, each instance has an individual formal and aesthetic appearance. The pencil drawings form an open series of variations, whose aspiration is not the gradual nearing of a perfected final outcome, but rather the serial testing of different, but equally weighted possibilities of representation within limited specifications.

The Philadelphia Country House explores the myriad ways in which these estates--which were located in the country but responded to the ideas and manners of the city--straddled the cultural divide between urban and rural. Moving from general trends and building principles to architectural interiors and landscape design, Reinberger and McLean take readers on an intimate tour of the fine, fashionable elements found in upstairs parlors and formal gardens. They also reveal the intricate working world of servants, cellars, and kitchen gardens. Highlighting an important aspect of American historic architecture, this handsome volume is illustrated with nearly 150 photographs, more than 60 line drawings, and two color galleries."--

Bol explores beadwork across the world and through the ages, showing how beading has taken on many different styles, forms, and purposes for different cultures. She looks at children's clothing, puberty ceremonies, burials, emblems of social status and leadership, festivals, and many other cultural occasions that involve the use of beadwork. Images of artifacts and heirlooms as well as photography of people and their beadwork enhance the scholarship of this book for a beautiful, enlightening addition to art, history, multicultural collections everywhere." -- Provided by publisher.

"This book examines the octagonal churches of Late Antiquity from the origins of the type in the fourth century to its sixth-century culmination in its most famous example, the church of San Vitale in Ravenna. The buildings, limited in number and many overlooked in modern scholarship, served several functions including funerary oratory, martyrium, and cathedral, though most were martyr or memorial shrines. Beyond addressing questions of function, architectural design, structural solutions, chronology, literary sources, and architectural symbolism are also studied."--

Color is inextricably linked with architecture; as a design element and also as an inherent quality, it characterizes the shape and texture of the built fabric. This book presents extraordinary color schemes, both in terms of technology and aesthetics, for ground-breaking architecture with a wide spectrum of functions: from apartment to concert hall, from flagship store to city park. The focus is on the works of the three architects Frank O. Gehry, Jean Nouvel and Wang Shu. This is expanded by the works of other practices such as BIG, Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Toyo Ito and SANAA. This publication presents a compendium that documents color schemes in architecture in the context of very different aesthetic approaches. The large-format photographs by Iwan Baan, Christian Richters, Roland Halbe and Philippe Ruault fascinate with their clarity and presence.

Historically patronised or promoted with such reductive terms as folk, naive, and outsider, the works of many African-American artists born during the Jim Crow era of institutionalised racism - most of whom are self taught - have, until recently, been relegated to the margins of American culture. These artists are now gaining the recognition they rightfully deserve, having addressed some of the most profound and persistent issues in American society, including race, class, gender and spirituality. Featuring more than sixty artworks and a series of insightful essays, this volume captures the impact of the historical legacy of the African diaspora and the ways it has expanded and enriched the history of American art.

Coming home : art & the great hunger
edited by Niamh O'Sullivan
Hamden, CT : Ireland's Great Hunger Museum/Quinnipiac University Press, 
"The scale of the Great Irish Famine, and the horror of it, were unprecedented. It permeated everything, the traces of which remain to this day. But the visual dimensions of the loss of life and the erosions of language and culture remained unaddressed until Quinnipiac University opened Ireland's Great Hunger Museum in 2012, to considerable acclaim. As a largely invisible trauma whose consequences were intrinsic to the subsequent development of Ireland - no less than the United States - the museum collects and displays images and supporting documentation that address both the lacunae and interconnections in representations of the Great Hunger in Irish and diasporic history, culture, and memory. Now, mindful of the suffering of so many, a large number of whom nonetheless went on to contribute so much to America, Quinnipiac University brings its collection home, to share with the people of Ireland. Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger is an important act of cultural reconnection with Ireland's past and living diaspora, and is a major cultural, educational, and tourist event of local, national, and international interest."--Amazon.

Transnational frontiers : the American West in France
Burns, Emily C., author
Norman : University of Oklahoma Press, 
When Buffalo Bill's Wild West show traveled to Paris in 1889, the New York Times reported that the exhibition would be managed to suit French ideas. But where had those French ideas of the American West come from? And how had they, in turn, shaped the notions of "cowboys and Indians" that captivated the French imagination during the Gilded Age" Emily C. Burns maps the complex fin-de-siècle cultural exchanges that revealed, defined, and altered images of the American West. This illustrated visual history shows how American artists, writers, and tourists traveling to France exported the dominant frontier narrative that presupposed manifest destiny - and how Native American performers with Buffalo Bill's Wild West and other traveling groups challenged that view. Many French artists and illustrators plied this imagery as well. At the 1900 World's Fair in Paris, sculptures of American cowboys conjured a dynamic and adventurous West, while portraits of American Indians on vases evoked an indigenous people frozen in primitivity. At the same time, representations of Lakota performers, as well as the performers themselves, deftly negotiated the politics of American Indian assimilation and sought alternative spaces abroad. For French artists and enthusiasts, the West served as a fulcrum for the construction of an American cultural identity, offering a chance to debate ideas of primitivism and masculinity that bolstered their own colonialist discourses. By examining this process, Burns reveals the interconnections between American western art and Franco-American artistic exchange between 1865 and 1915.

Of the many large-scale sculpture and art parks in the world, including Marfa, Storm King, Tickon, Yorkshire, Ekebergparken, Hakone, and Foundation Maeght, none is more ambitious in vision and scale than Tippet Rise, an 11,500-acre arts venue in south-central Montana, nor in a more spectacular setting. Nestled in the mountains north of Yellowstone National Park, the sprawling arts venue, opened in 2016 by philanthropists Cathy and Peter Halstead, celebrates the union of land, art, architecture, and music, bringing concerts by world-renowned musicians and large-scale sculpture by artists like Alexander Calder, Patrick Dougherty, Mark di Suvero, Ensamble Studio, and Stephen Talasnik to a breathtaking destination. 'Tippet Rise' is the first book on this unique arts venue. With over 200 stunning color plates, it's the next best thing to an actual visit, which should be on the to-do list of every art, architecture, and music lover. This monograph includes essays by the founders, statements by the featured artists and musician Steven Hough, and poems by Peter Halstead.

Playing with fire : paintings by Carlos Almaraz
Almaraz, Carlos, author
New York : DelMonico Books, an imprint of Prestel Publishing, 
Foreword / Michael Govan -- Playing with Fire / Howard N. Fox -- Plates -- The Artist's Journey : The Life of Carlos Almaraz / Elsa Flores Almaraz, with Jeffrey J. Rangel -- A Life Transfigured in Words : Selections from the Journals of Carlos Almaraz / Compiled by Elsa Flores Almaraz -- Other Voices : Almaraz's Legacy / Compiled by Marielos Kluck.
'Playing with Fire: Paintings by Carlos Almaraz' is the first full- length monograph devoted to an artist known for both his politically engaged cultural production as well as his vibrant, highly sought-after studio art, particularly his scenes of car crashes and pastoral depictions of L.A.'s Echo Park. Among the leading figures whose artistic, cultural, and political motivations catalyzed the Chicano Art movement in the 1970s, Almaraz began his career with works for the United Farm Workers and cofounded the important artists collective Los Four. Although he saw himself as an activist, Almaraz straddled multiple- and often contradictory-identities that drew from divergent cultures and approaches, and his work became less overtly political and more personal, psychological, dreamlike, and even mystical as he evolved artistically. The book features more than 60 works, mostly from the late 1970s through 1989, the year of the artist's untimely death at age 48, as well as selections from his journals and recollections from numerous colleagues and friends who knew him throughout his career.00Exhibition: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, USA (06.08.-03.12.2017).

The 17th century is a Golden Age, a century of unprecedented blossoming in Dutch art and culture. Rembrandt uses innovative techniques: Vermeer captures life in silent tableaus. The everyday is portrayed: still lifes with cheeses and flowers, dune landscapes and mills and of course the citizens themselves. Trade flourishes and supplies the Netherlands with goods from all over the world. Including more than 150 highlights from the Rijksmuseum's collection, this publication paints a picture of the glory of the Golden Age.

Hungarian-born French artist Nicolas Schoeffer (1912-1992), though relatively unknown today, was during his lifetime a significant presence in the art world. His 1956 piece CYSP 1 is considered the first cybernetic sculpture, making use of motors, microphones, and photo-electric cells to create a work based on feedback loops and responsiveness to its environment. For Schoeffer, cybernetics enabled a crucial artistic exploration of the boundary between the living and the technological. This important reevaluation of Schoeffer's work features sculptures, paintings, and drawings, including unpublished pieces from the artist's studio and archive, as well as documentation of his interdisciplinary and experimental collaborations with architects, musicians, choreographers, scientists, and industrialists. Particular attention is paid to the innovative work he created between 1945 and 1975, which takes on particular resonance in our current, digitally saturated world.

Winslow Homer and the camera : photography and the art of painting
Dana E. Byrd, Frank H. Goodyear III
London : In association with Yale University Press, 
A good thing when he sees it: Winslow Homer, photography, and the art of painting / Frank H. Goodyear III -- Plates -- Trouble in paradise?: Winslow Homer in the Bahamas, Cuba, and Florida, 1884-1886 / Dana E. Byrd -- Plates.
A revelatory exploration of Winslow Homer's engagement with photography, shedding new light on his celebrated paintings and works on paper. One of the greatest American painters of the 19th century, Winslow Homer (1836-1910) also maintained a deep engagement with photography throughout his career. Focusing on the important, yet often-overlooked, role that photography played in Homer's art, this volume exposes Homer's own experiments with the camera (he first bought one in 1882). It also explores how the medium of photography and the larger visual economy influenced his work as a painter, watercolorist, and printmaker at a moment when new print technologies inundated the public with images. Frank Goodyear and Dana Byrd demonstrate that photography offered Homer new ways of seeing and representing the world, from his early commercial engravings sourced from contemporary photographs to the complex relationship between his late-career paintings of life in the Bahamas, Florida, and Cuba and the emergent trend of tourist photography. The authors argue that Homer's understanding of the camera's ability to create an image that is simultaneously accurate and capable of deception was vitally important to his artistic practice in all media. Richly illustrated and full of exciting new discoveries, Winslow Homer and the Camera is a long-overdue examination of the ways in which photography shaped the vision of one of America's most original painters.

The Italian Renaissance nude
Burke, Jill, 1971- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 
Introduction -- Nakedness in Renaissance Italy -- Nudity, art, and the viewer -- The perfect body: masculinity, creativity, divinity, and the nude -- Making naked women beautiful -- Mythological nudes and other masculine diversions -- Afterword -- Acknowledgments -- Notes -- Bibliography -- Index -- Credits.
The first scholarly monograph to focus on the inception of the Italian Renaissance nude, this lively study subverts the idea that the nude in this period was a triumph of classical revival. Looking again at familiar (even overly familiar) images by artists such as Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Titian, this book investigates the nude as a tool of colonialism and conquest, as a means of asserting the superiority of men to women, and of naturalizing power differentials by entrenching them in a fixed set of ideas about the body and its representation. Jill Burke uses new research on Renaissance sexual practices, material culture, and the history of medicine to contextualize the era's fascination with nakedness and the body in both art and life. The Italian Renaissance Nude invites readers to consider these celebrated nudes from beyond an aesthetic perspective-to consider why they were painted, whose gaze the images were created for, and how these artworks were used.

Sante Fe, NM : Radius Books, 
Volume 1. Desert I -- volume 2. Desert II -- volume 3. Desert III -- volume 4. Desert IV -- [volume 5]. Desert [Accompanying booklet].
In this series, Lee captures the American southwest and transforms it with liquid light and diluted light-sensitive emulsions to create images that are as uncontrollable and natural as the landscape she depicts. Desert comprises four series of works (each bound as a separate book and presented in a unique slipcase), all of which contain monochromatic images of arid lands. Stratigraphy etched into rock faces, massive stones, cave-like precipices and anthropomorphic fauna showcase an extensive compendium of the desert?s many faces and textures. Each image focuses on the landscape?s formal qualities, eschewing human presence, simultaneously evoking late 19th-century photography, while epitomizing the stark modernity of Lee?s lens. 'As a photographer,' writes Lee, 'I am primarily concerned with the unconscious, the unknown, and the invisible.'

Montage and the metropolis : architecture, modernity, and the representation of space
Stierli, Martino, 1974- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 
Montage has been hailed as one of the key structural principles of modernity, yet its importance to the history of modern thought about cities and their architecture has never been adequately explored. In this groundbreaking new work, Martino Stierli charts the history of montage in late 19th-century urban and architectural contexts, its application by the early 20th-century avant-garde, and its eventual embrace by the postmodernist movement. With chapters focusing on photomontage, the film theories of Sergei Eisenstein, Mies van der Rohe's spatial experiments, and Rem Koolhaas's use of literary montage in his seminal manifesto Delirious New York (1978), Stierli demonstrates the centrality of montage in modern explorations of space, and in conceiving and representing the contemporary city. Beautifully illustrated, this interdisciplinary book looks at architecture, photography, film, literature, and visual culture, featuring works by artists and architects including Mies, Koolhaas, Hannah Hoech, George Grosz, El Lissitzky, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Charlotte Salomon and the theatre of memory
Pollock, Griselda, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 2018
"Charlotte Salomon (1917-1943) is renowned for her monumental Life? or Theater?, which comprises 784 paintings the artist created in France between 1941 and 1942, before she was sent to Auschwitz where she was killed in 1943. In this in-depth monograph of the iconic work, Griselda Pollock offers a complex reading of Salomon's unique combination of image, text, and music. Without underestimating the tragic violence of her death in the Holocaust, Pollock seeks to reveal the artist's place within European modernism. In addition to discussing how Salomon's project resonates with the work of those who shared her situation of menaced exile, such as Walter Benjamin, Sigmund Freud, and Hannah Arendt, Pollock reveals how Life? or Theater? raises the issue of sexual abuse of women within the artist's family. Full of close visual analysis, this groundbreaking book offers new insight into Salomon's powerful work in its historical and cultural moment"--

Polidoro da Caravaggio
Franklin, David, 1961- author
London : Yale University Press, 2018
Polidoro da Caravaggio (c. 1500-1543), one of Raphael's most influential and distinctive followers, has not been well treated by time. His significant early frescoes, which graced exterior palace facades in Rome, have perished almost without exception. A rare few are preserved but most are known only in copies. Consequently, the originality of Polidoro's public work has been little explored, despite his once famous reputation and the association of his name with Raphael and Michelangelo. His move to Sicily later in life, a region with few surviving primary sources, further complicates the study of his work. Extant pieces by the artist from this period are unusually severe in content and technique, and their attribution has often been controversial. In this first account in English, Polidoro's radical Sicilian paintings are considered through the lens of the religious life of the era and in relation to his early secular work. This much-needed investigation establishes Polidoro's proper place in the canon of art history.

Kwab : ornament as art in the age of Rembrandt
Baarsen, Reinier, author
Amsterdam : Rijksmuseum, 
The auricular is one of the most important and remarkable Dutch contributions to the decorative arts in Europe. This book traces the history and meaning of the auricular style, with its fabulous, organic shapes, from the work of the goldsmith Paulus van Vianen at the court of Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor, in Prague to that of his brother Adam in Utrecht and Johannes Lutma in Amsterdam. Their masterpieces were admired as high art by Rembrandt and his pupils, who produced auricular designs themselves. The fascinating story of this unique abstract decorative form is illustrated using silver and gold masterworks, design drawings and prints, paintings by Rembrandt, furnishings, and Cuir de Cordoue gold leather wall coverings. An organic style emerges that is particularly relevant to today's design practices. Exhibition: Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (30.06.-16.09.2018).

Portrait of my father ; Beginnings and the National Museum of Wales ; Jarlshof, Shetland: a work in progress ; Years of achievement.
"Alan Sorrell's archaeological reconstruction drawings and paintings remain some of the best, most accurate and most accomplished paintings of their genre that continue to inform our understanding and appreciation of historic buildings and monuments in Europe, the Near East and throughout the UK. His famously stormy and smoky townscapes, especially those of Roman Britain, were based on meticulous attention to detail borne of detailed research in collaboration with archaeologists such as Sir Mortimer Wheeler, Sir Cyril Fox and Sir Barry Cunliffe, who excavated and recorded his subjects of interest. Many of his reconstructions were commissioned to accompany visitor information and guidebooks at historic sites and monuments where they continue to be displayed. But archaeological subjects were not his only interest. His output was prodigious: he painted murals, portraits, imaginative and romantic scenes and was an accomplished war artist, serving in the RAF in World War II. In this affectionate but objective account, Sorrell's children, both also artists, present a brief pictorial biography followed by more detailed descriptions of the genesis, research and production of illustrations that demonstrate the artist's integrity and vision, based largely on family archives and illustrated throughout with Sorrell's own works. So influential were Sorrell's images of Roman towns such as London, Colchester, Wroxeter, St Albans and Bath, buildings such as the Heathrow temple and the forts of Hadrian's Wall, that he became known as "the man who invented Roman Britain"--

Anton Romako : Beginn der Moderne
Romako, Anton, 1832-1889
Köln : Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 
Anton Romako was arguably the most idiosyncratic artist in Austrian painting of the late 19th century. Meeting with incomprehension and contempt, his oeuvre changed the paradigms of perception and depicting reality in an unconventional manner and ahead of its time. What was particularly unusual was that different painterly tendencies coalesced in Romako's work simultaneously--from realism and impressionism all the way to a new psychologizing expressive art. Especially the paintings of his last 14 years, which Romako spent in Vienna from 1876, allow us to trace his development from a popular manner of depiction towards a fundamental renewal of history-, genre-, and portrait painting.

Stil und Nation : Barockforschung und deutsche Kunstgeschichte, ca. 1830-1933
Engel, Ute, 1963- author
Paderborn : Wilhelm Fink, Brill Deutschland, c2018
Lange als schwülstig abgelehnt, wurde der Barock erst in den 1870/80er Jahren als eigenwertiger Stil in die kunsthistorische Stilsystematik eingefügt. Bald darauf setzten die Versuche ein, gerade den deutschen Barock unter dem Vorzeichen des Gesamtkunstwerks als Höhepunkt der abendländischen Kunstgeschichte nationalistisch zu vereinnahmen. Diese Verschränkung von Stildebatte und Nationaldiskurs wird erstmals auf einer breiten Quellenbasis analysiert. Es kann gezeigt werden, wie Heinrich Wölfflin, August Schmarsow, Alois Riegl, Wilhelm Pinder u.a. im intertextuellen Austausch Denk- und Deutungsmuster des Barock als Stil und des spezifisch Deutschen in der deutschen Kunst prägten. So trug die Kunstgeschichte entscheidend dazu bei, bis 1933 ein nationales Identitätskonstrukt zu liefern, dessen sich die Nationalsozialisten nur noch bedienen mussten.

The book offers new insight into the religious dimension of Bruegel?s art. With a number of highly original and thorough case studies, the volume illuminates Bruegel?s inventive and multifaceted engagement with the contemporary religious concepts and practices of his day and age.0Religion remains a vital question in the life and career of Bruegel, because it was so long believed to be more or less absent from his work. As a pioneer of the new genres of landscape and peasant scenes, Bruegel was heralded as a ground-breaking ?secular? painter. This volume highlights the most recent scholarship on the artist, offering a much more nuanced portrait of Bruegel?s engagement with the dynamic religious landscape of the mid-sixteenth century.

Odilon Redon : literature and music
Redon, Odilon, 1840-1916, artist
Rotterdam : Nai010 uitgevers, 
Odilon Redon (Bordeaux, 1840 - Paris, 1916) was a painter, lithographer, draughtsman and pastellist, as well as a writer, critic and musician. As so many symbolists he was fascinated by synaesthesia, the idea that an experience can be more intense when several senses are solicited together. Redon was masterful at interweaving the expressive powers of literature, music and the visual arts.0By addressing some of Redon?s favorite themes, this richly illustrated publication shows how he transposed literary and musical motifs into his own work and how he reinvented such themes over and over again creating new associations and meaning.0Next to literary themes and subjects linked to classical drama, Redon chose topics that were inspired by, among others, Richard Wagner?s and Robert Schumann?s music. With more than 200 illustrations of works largely in private collections and the Kröller-Müller Museum, and with essays by renowned experts on Redon and Symbolism, this book provides extensive insight into the importance of literature and music in Odilon Redon's oeuvre. 00Exhibition: Kröller-Müller-Museum, Otterlo, The Netherlands (02.06.-09.09.2018) / Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen, Denmark (11.10.2018-20.01.2019).

For whom the bell tolls : Samson Young's art journey
Young, Samson, artist
Berlin : Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2016
Journeys and encounters with other countries and people play a decisive role in the creative process of many artists. Last year we published The Sense of Movement: When Artists Travel, the first volume commemorating the BMW Art Journey, a joint initiative by BMW and Art Basel that supports artists with travel grants. That inaugural compendium featured iconic artists' journeys through art history. The second volume in the series memorializes the first journey undertaken by a recipient of this unique award. Hong Kong-based artist and composer Samson Young traced the sounds and the complex histories of bells in a two-months-long journey that took him to eleven countries on five continents. The artist's compositions, images, and texts give expression to the relationships of tensions between war and peace, solidarity and strife, and of the political dimension of sound.

Objects in this mirror : essays
Dillon, Brian, 1969-
Berlin : Sternberg Press, ©2014
"Objects in This Mirror is a collection of essays on contemporary art, literature, landscape, aesthetics, and cultural history. Beginning with a polemical and personal defense of generalism and curiosity, Brian Dillon explores the variety of themes it is possible today to corral within the rubric of the critical essay. These pieces engage with the work of such artists as Tacita Dean, Gerard Byrne, Andy Warhol, and Sophie Calle; with the ruinous territories that haunt the work of Robert Smithson and Derek Jarman; with the ambiguous figures of the charlatan, the vandal, the hypochondriac, and the dandy. Taking seriously the playful remit of the essay as form, Dillon treats of compelling obscurities: gesture manuals of the nineteenth century, the history of antidepressant marketing, the search for a cure to the common cold. Whether his topic is the nature of slapstick, his love of the writings of Roland Barthes, or the genre of the essay itself, he is as much concerned with the form of criticism today as with its varied and digressive subjects."--Publisher's website.

The Adornes Domain and the Jerusalem Chapel in Bruges : a remarkable legacy from the Middle Ages
Lambert, Véronique, author
Amsterdam : Amsterdam University Press, 
Bruges, middle of the 15th century. Anselm Adornes, scion of a rich patrician family, creates a magnificent domain in the heart of the city: an elegant mansion, beautiful gardens, several charitable almshouses and the spectacular Chapel of Jerusalem. It is a place that every right-minded resident of Bruges and every tourist must see. The history of the Adornes domain is truly remarkable, remaining in the unbroken possession of the same family for six centuries. It has survived storms and setbacks, the secularism of the French Revolution, the fury of two world wars and inevitable periods of disinterest. In this book Véronique Lambert allows us to share in the hopes and fears, joys and sorrows, trials and tribulations that mark the milestones in the Adornes family saga. Within the boundaries of historical interpretation and based on extensive research, she unfolds a tale of ambitious adventurers, charismatic personalities, flamboyant lords and ordinary mortals, but each imbued with the family's traditional willpower and energy.

Collecting art in the Italian Renaissance court : objects and exchanges
Clark, Leah Ruth, author
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Leah R. Clark examines collecting practices across the Italian Renaissance court, exploring the circulation, exchange, collection, and display of objects. Rather than focusing on patronage strategies or the political power of individual collectors, she uses the objects themselves to elucidate the dynamic relationships formed through their exchange. Her study brings forward the mechanisms that structured relations within the court, and most importantly, also with individuals, representations, and spaces outside the court. The volume examines the courts of Italy through the wide variety of objects - statues, paintings, jewellery, furniture, and heraldry - that were valued for their subject matter, material forms, histories, and social functions. As Clark shows, the late fifteenth-century Italian court an be located not only in the body of the prince, but also in the objects that constituted symbolic practices, initiated political dialogues, caused rifts, created memories, and formed associations.--

A richly illustrated, expansive mid-career survey of the stand-out American artist's pioneering and influential work. Since the early 1990s, Laura Owens (b. 1970) has challenged traditional assumptions about figuration and abstraction in her pioneering-and at times controversial-approach to painting. This inventive mid-career survey of Owens's work takes the form of an expansive five-hundred-page book, interweaving writing on the artist's work with excerpts from a wide variety of texts. Including an essay by Scott Rothkopf, this richly illustrated volume presents Owens's paintings within a rich trove of archival imagery that includes exhibition announcements, installation photographs, personal correspondence, and source material, most of which has never before been published. Reflections by fellow artists, collaborators, assistants, dealers, family, and friends contribute an array of perspectives on Owens's working practice and her numerous achievements. Exhibition: Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, USA (11.10.2017-04.02.2018).

Collective exhibition that included pieces from the Bachué Project collection and was on display in the Annex of the Espacio El Dorado (Bogotá) from October 2016 until February 2017. The exhibition attempted to show the traces left by the violence in Colombia. Moreover, it reflected the interminable confrontations between the country's privileged class and the rural working class, or political and economic interests. These rivalries played out during the plebiscite on October 2nd in 2016 and have now left the country in a limbo.

The way of the dot / Debra Bricker Balken -- Self-effacement and the sublime / Jim Shepard -- Horizon lines / Geoffrey Young -- Plates -- Checklist -- Biography.
At once conceptual and decorative, Barbara Takenaga's swirling, patterned paintings have been called "psychedelic" and "cosmic." Takenaga's approach to painting is both highly structured and disciplined. In this collection of seventy paintings, the evolution of Takenaga's celestial bodies and ecstatic compositions is traced over a 20-year period. The luminous reproductions allow readers to study her intricacies of form and color. The book includes an essay that examines Takenaga's work in relation to historic precedents and current aesthetic developments; a brief consideration of Takenaga's career by novelist Jim Shepard; and a poem by Geoffrey Young.

Paris : Flammarion, 
Cet ouvrage a été publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée au Palais de Tokyo, Paris, du 14 juin au 10 septembre 2017. Cet ouvrage lève le voile sur une source d'inspiration inattendue des artistes contemporains : le diorama. Le diorama a comme point d'origine l'invention de Daguerre de 1822, consistant en une peinture de grandes dimensions sur une toile semi-transparente animée par des jeux de lumière dans un processus théâtral. Mais il désigne aussi la reconstitution artificielle d'un milieu naturel, d'un événement historique ou d'une scène de la vie quotidienne. Objet de divertissement par son caractère spectaculaire, pédagogique par sa volonté de raconter une histoire et éminemment plastique par la qualité de ses figures sculptées ou de ses fonds peints, le diorama révèle le talent d'une multitude d'acteurs souvent oubliés qui redéfinissent les territoires de l'art, à la frontière des sciences, des techniques et de l'anthropologie.

America's cool modernism : O'Keeffe to Hopper
Bourguignon, Katherine M., author
Oxford : Ashmolean Museum, 2018
"As some American artists began to eliminate people and remove extraneous details from their compositions, they often employed neat, orderly brushwork or close-up, unemotional photography. Artists as diverse as Patrick Henry Bruce, John Covert, Georgia O'Keeffe, Paul Strand and Arthur Dove navigated European and American avant-garde circles, picking and choosing new ideas and methods. Inspiration ranged from Cubism and machine parts to new technologies, and they found ways to bring order to the modern world through extreme simplification. For them, abstraction involved absence and presence - the evacuation of human beings but also the desire to depict something that would not otherwise be visible or to render visible unseen natural processes like the passage of time, sound waves, or weather patterns. Their artworks provide a new context for the precisionist works in the subsequent sections and point to modern ideas about what art could be"--Publisher's description.
