The optimum imperative : Czech architecture for the socialist lifestyle, 1938-1968
Miljački, Ana, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
The Optimum Imperative examines architecture's multiple entanglements within the problem of Socialist lifestyle in postwar Czechoslovakia. Situated in the period loosely bracketed by the signing of the Munich accords in 1938, which affected Czechoslovakia's entrance into World War II, and the Warsaw Pact troops' occupation of Prague in 1968, the book investigates three decades of Czech architecture, highlighting a diverse cast of protagonists. Key among them are the theorist and architect Karel Honzik and a small group of his colleagues in the Club for the Study of Consumption; the award-winning Czechoslovak Pavilion at the 1958 World Expo in Brussels; and SIAL, a group of architects from Liberec that emerged from the national network of Stavoprojekt offices during the reform years, only to be subsumed back into it in the wake of Czechoslovak normalization. This episodic approach enables a long view of the way that the project of constructing Socialism was made disciplinarily specific for architecture, through the constant interpretation of Socialist lifestyle, both as a narrative framework and as a historical goal. Without sanitizing history of its absurd contortions in discourse and in daily life, the book takes as its subject the complex and dynamic relationships between Cold War politics, state power, disciplinary legitimating narratives, and Czech architects' optimism for Socialism. It proposes that these key dimensions of practicing architecture and building Socialism were intertwined, and even commensurate at times, through the framework of Socialist lifestyle.

Australia's Impressionists' introduces a worldwide audience to Impressionism as it manifested itself in artistic movements beyond Europe. This catalogue features over 35 paintings, including important masterpieces by Australia's leading artists, many of which have never previously been shown outside the country. In 1889 a group of artists working in Melbourne opened the '9 by 5 Impression Exhibition', an ambitious display that sought to introduce local society to their version of Impressionism. These artists - Tom Roberts, Charles Conder, Arthur Streeton - presented some 180 oil sketches. Many of these scenes of contemporary life, using a vividly coloured palette, were painted on panels, from cigar boxes, of around 9 x 5 inches, which gave the show its name. In fact these pictures owed more to Whistler, whose works Roberts had seen in London in 1884, than to French Impressionism. Drawing on a wider interest in national identity among the non-Indigenous population, Conder, Roberts and Streeton championed a new Australian landscape style. This drew on the practices of European plein-air artists, but the resulting pictures became larger and more ambitious in manner; paintings of the leisured lifestyle offered by Sydney Harbour are recorded with cheerful pride, while scenes of the bush - albeit never too far from the city - are elevated to a mode of heroic myth. John Peter Russell, a friend and correspondent of Roberts, was born and died in Sydney, but spent some 40 years as an expatriate in Europe. Russell spent his working life in the company of Van Gogh, Monet and Rodin. While his talents as a colourist made a deep impression on the young Matisse, his innovative art was only rediscovered in the later twentieth century. Exhibition: The National Gallery, London, UK (07.12.2016-26.03.2017).

Atglen, PA : Schiffer Publishing Ltd., 
"For artists interested in using color in a new way, this two-part book offers a fresh, comprehensive approach to understandng color in painting. Part one starts with the basics and teaches, rung by rung, many concepts including color, value, and the use of red, yellow, and blue to build three-dimensional form. Tools given in part one form the foundation for part two's lessons in "temperature painting," an original method created by the author using warm and cool colors. The instructions are easy to follow, step by step, and fully illustrated with beautiful finished pieces by various artists and the author, an accomplished artist who teaches workshops nationally"--Page 4 of cover.

Hokusai x manga : Japanese pop culture since 1680
edited by Sabine Schulze, Nora von Achenbach, Simon Klingler
Munich : Hirmer, 
Early Japanese popular culture, in the form of the coloured woodcuts of artists like Hokusai and Kuniyoshi, achieved world fame after Japan's opening. The pop culture of today, from manga to anime, has also conquered the globe. Now the sheets and books of woodcuts by the most famous renowned ukiyo-e artists confront the visual mass media in the comics and cartoons of modern Japan. The high-quality Japanese woodcuts and graphic novels from the 17th to the 19th centuries are products of an urban popular culture in pre-modern Japan, in which clothing, stage stars, myths, monsters, sexuality and commerce were the governing factors. The publication shows the enchanting imagery of both historical and contemporary pop culture in Japan, which today focuses on manga and anime. Short texts spotlight the art of the woodcut in the Edo period, such as the famous shunga sheets, together with selected excerpts from manga, including those by Jiro Taniguchi and Inio Asano as well as the current developments in the manga phenomenon in the Japan of the 21st century.

A passion for the Arctic : the Hans van Berkel Collection : art and handicrafts from Canada, Greenland and Siberia
Cunera Buijs, editor ; contributors, Cunera Buijs, Frédéric Laugrand, Jarich Oosten, Cornelius Remie and Karel Stevens
Volendam : LM Publishers, 
"In 2015, the Dutch collector Hans van Berkel (1946), granted his private collection of Inuit and Chukchi art and handicrafts to the National Museum of Ethnology in Leiden--now part of the larger National Museum of World Cultures encompassing three museums in three different cities. Starting in the early 1970s, Van Berkel has built up the most important and comprehensive private Inuit-related collection in the Netherlands. Van Berkel was first inspired to begin collecting when he came into contact with Leo Mol, a renowned sculptor in Winnipeg, Canada. Gifts from him were the first Inuit art objects in what later became the Van Berkel collection. This book not only presents some of his most beautiful or interesting artefacts, it also places the developments in art in a historical, political and economic context of the culture involved. Reflecting Van Berkel's special interests, shamanism and spiritual culture are particularly well represented in the collection, which showcases the skilled craftsmanship of Inuit and Chukchi artisans. Also included are tourist art and objects depicting the daily lives of hunters, reindeer herders, and their wives, which reflect the norms and values of these intriguing cultures of northern Canada, Greenland, and Siberia"--Page 4 of cover.

Thomas Cole's journey : Atlantic crossings
Kornhauser, Elizabeth Mankin, 1950- author
New York : The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 
Thomas Cole (1801-1848), arguably the greatest American landscape artist of his generation, is presented here in a new light: as an international figure, born in England, and in dialogue with the major landscape painters of the age, including J.M.W. Turner and John Constable. Cole traveled in Europe from 1829 to 1832. Thomas Cole's Journey reexamines his seminal works of 1832-36--notably The Oxbow and Course of Empire--as a culminating response to his experiences of British art and society and of Italian landscape painting. These, combined with Cole's passion for the American wilderness and his horror of the industrial revolution in Britain, led him to create works that offer a distinctive, even dissident, response to the economic and political rise of the United States and the ecological changes then underway. This groundbreaking book also discusses Cole's influence on later artists, from Frederic Edwin Church to Ed Ruscha.

Triumphal entry: Floras's return to Antwerp (1546-49) -- 5. The Floris workshop: practice, theory, ritual -- 6. Portraits and head studies -- 7. Experiments in religious art: style and audience -- 8.

Humanæ Societati Necessaria: Frans Floris's vision for the arts -- 12. Coda.
Frans Floris de Vriendt radically transformed Netherlandish art. His monumental mythologies introduced a new appreciation for the heroic nude to the Low Countries and his religious art challenged standards of decorum. Born into a family of sculptors and architects, Floris refashioned his art through travel, first studying with the humanist painter Lambert Lombard in Liege and then continuing on to Italy. These experiences defined the hybridizing novelty of his art, forged by juxtaposing antique and modern, Italian and Northern sources. This book maps Floris's hybrid style onto shifting conceptions of cultural, religious, and political identity on the eve of the Dutch Revolt. It explores his collaborations and rivalries, engagement with artistic theory, hierarchical workshop, and revolutionary use of print.

Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) produced some of the most memorable art of the early twentieth century.

The Fonte Gaia from Renaissance to modern times : a history of construction, preservation, and reconstruction in Siena
Scappini, Chiara E., author
Amsterdam : Amsterdam University Press, 
The Fonte Gaia from Renaissance to Modern Times' examines the history of Siena's famous public fountain, from its fifteenth-century origins to its eventual replacement by a copy in the nineteenth century (and the modern fate of both). The book explores how both the Risorgimento and the Symbolist movements have shaped our perceptions of the Italian Renaissance, as the Quattrocento was filtered through the lens of contemporary art and politics.

Ehre über Gold : die Meisterstiche von Hendrick Goltzius : Bildtheorie und Ikonografie um 1600
Wandrey, Petra, 1969-
Berlin : Gebr. Mann Verlag, c2018
Hendrick Goltzius (1558-1617) war einer der bedeutendsten Künstler des 16. Jahrhunderts und nach Lucas van Leyden der erste peintre graveur der Niederlande. Nach seiner Italienreise entstanden die berühmten sechs Kupferstiche zu Geburt und Kindheit Christi, die sogenannten Meisterstiche. Sie sind virtuos angelegt im Stil der großen Renaissancekünstler und doch technisch auf neuestem Stand und mit eigenen Bildfindungen versehen. Der niederländische Künstler widmete die Serie dem bayerischen Herzog Wilhelm V. Diesen Kontext berücksichtigt das Buch von Petra Wandrey. Ihre detaillierte Analyse deckt das anspruchsvolle gedankliche Konzept auf und bezieht die technische Brillanz der Ausführung mit ein. So erweisen sich die Meisterstiche als bildlicher Ausdruck übergreifenden Reformdenkens, als eine Stellungnahme zu Kunsttheorie und Kunstgeschichte sowie zu den konfessionellen Konflikten der Zeit.

Mostly known as landscape painter, Camille Corot was also a great painter of figures, admired by Degas or Picasso.

The conference, in connection with the exhibition held at the Marmottan Monet Museum, aims to explore this more intimate part of the art of Camille Corot.--Musée du Louvre.

Danh Vo : take my breath away
Vo, Danh, 1975- artist
New York : Guggenheim Museum Publications, 
Danh Vo's conceptual, installation-based practice dissects the cultural forces and private desires that shape our experience of the world. He often employs found objects, images and texts to animate personal narratives that refract global political histories. Published to accompany the most comprehensive museum survey to date of the Danish artist's work, this catalog presents for the first time an illuminating overview of Vo's work from the past 15 years. Organized around nearly 30 major projects and installations, the volume ranges from Vo's early performative works such as Vo Rosasco Rasmussen (2003), in which he married and divorced acquaintances in order to add their surnames to his own, to his recent sculptural hybrids of classical and Christian statuary. A lead essay by Katherine Brinson probes the artist's roving, research-based process in which historical study, fortuitous encounters and personal relationships are woven into psychologically potent tableaux. Significant recurring subjects include the legacy of colonialism and the fraught status of the refugee, as well as the image of the United States in its own collective imagination and in that of the world.

Habitus as method : revisiting a scholastic theory of art
Efal, Adi, author
Leuven : Peeters, 2017
Rather than being an event of an aesthetic, sublime or revelatory character, art can be rather understood simply as a habitual productive activity, taking an equal part in the design of quotidian reality as any other tool. The habitual approach to art carries with it several consequences regarding the understanding of the history of art and the theory of artistic production. This habitual approach has its origins in the Scholastic conception of the habitus of art, leaning on the Aristotelian definition of Poiesis. But the habitual approach had also its long history, passing through French Spiritualism in the 19th century, and several other stations in the 20th century. The essay follows Erwin Panofsky's concept of "mental habit" as a methodological instrument in the history of art. After exposing the principles of a habitual approach to the history of art, the essay continues to follow Panofsky's essay 'Gothic Architecture and Scholasticism', trying to trace what was Panofsky in fact conceiving under this term. In the conclusion, the essay suggests some guiding principles for conceiving of a habitus-oriented theory of art, energized by the scholastic approach to the habitus of art and by the method of habitus in the science of history.

Man Ray (1890-1976) wurde stets vor allem als Fotograf rezipiert. Weitreichende Berühmtheit erlangte er für seine Künstler-Fotoporträts und seine kameralos aufgenommenen Rayografien der 1920er-Jahre. Dass Man Ray jedoch malte, zeichnete, designte, Filme drehte, Objekte entwarf, Schriften verfasste, sich auch für Typografie, Buch- und Magazingestaltung begeisterte und eine veritable Karriere als experimenteller Modefotograf bei Harper's Bazaar und Vogue verfolgte, will die Ausstellung des Kunstforums Wien vor Augen führen. Man Ray bediente sich in erfinderischer und spielerischer Manier einer Unzahl an künstlerischen Medien und Techniken. Eine Auswahl von 200 Schlüsselwerken aus der ganzen Welt, darunter Gemälde, Fotografien, Objekte, Papier-Arbeiten, Collagen, Assemblagen und experimenteller Film, umreißt die gleichsam enigmatische wie komplexe Künstlerpersönlichkeit Man Rays und zeigt, wie er - in kongenialer künstlerischer Komplizenhaftigkeit mit Marcel Duchamp - den Grundstein dafür legte, wie und was wir heute als Kunst betrachten.00Exhibition: Kunstforum Wien, Vienna, Austria (14.02. - 24.06.2018).

Jasper Johns : pictures within pictures 1980-2015
Donovan, Fiona, author
London : Thames & Hudson Ltd, 2017
The crosshatch amplified -- Racing thoughts -- Perceptual play and Picassoid eyes -- The Seasons -- Green Angel and Mirror's Edge -- Catenaries -- 0-9 and regrets.
In the late 1970s, after the artist's explosive Pop Art beginnings and a period of abstraction, representational objects made their way back into Jasper Johns' work. Supported by the artist's words and previous scholarship, this is the first comprehensive study of his later paintings and works on paper. Fiona Donovan helps contextualize images that have personal significance for Johns and explain a broader humanist discourse. Readers learn of his absorption with the appropriation and abstraction of images taken from Cezanne, Grunewald, Picasso, and others, and discover the inspiration Johns finds in his immediate surroundings. Progressing through several key phases and turning points in the artist's career, Donovan brings to light not only this subtext of inspirations and influences but also Johns' circle of contemporaries, collaborators, and personal perceptions and obsessions. Johns' compelling and enduring curiosity is omnipresent and reflected in his stylistic changes, but the shifting themes, motifs, and moods of his work are all underpinned by his exceptional skill.

In the late nineteenth century, the Dutch artist and collector, Hendrik Willem Mesdag, amassed an eclectic collection of Japanese artefacts, ranging from samurai swords and colourful earthenware to bronze cranes and majestic altar vases. At the time, decorative art from Japan was all the rage. This richly illustrated book places Mesdag's collection in a cultural-historical context, paying homage to an idiosyncratic collector and his outstanding collection of Japanese applied art.00Exhibition: Mesdagmuseum, The Hague, The Netherlands (07.03.-17.06.2018).

Art and immortality in the ancient Near East
Ataç, Mehmet-Ali, 1972- author
Cambridge, UK ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Discussions of apocalyptic thought and its sources in the ancient Near East, particularly Mesopotamia, have a long scholarly history, with a renewed interest and focus in the recent decades. Outside Assyriological scholarship as well, studies of the apocalyptic give significant credit to the ancient Near East, especially Babylonia and Iran, as potential sources for the manifestations of this phenomenon in the Hellenistic period. The emphasis on kingship and empire in apocalyptic modes of thinking warrants special attention paid to the regal art of ancient Mesopotamia and adjacent areas in its potential to express the relevant notions. In this book, Mehmet-Ali Atac demonstrates the importance of visual evidence as a source for apocalyptic thought. Focusing on the so-called investiture painting from Mari, he relates it to parallel evidence from the visual traditions of the Assyrian Empire, ancient Egypt, and Hittite Anatolia.

Divine and demonic imagery at Tor de'Specchi, 1400-1500 : religious women and art in fifteenth-century Rome
Scanlan, Suzanne M., author
Amsterdam : Amsterdam University Press, 
In the fifteenth century, the Oblates of Santa Francesca Romana, a fledgling community of religious women in Rome, commissioned an impressive array of artwork for their newly acquired living quarters, the Tor de'Specchi. The imagery focused overwhelmingly on the sensual, corporeal nature of contemporary spirituality, populating the walls of the monastery with a highly naturalistic assortment of earthly, divine, and demonic figures. This book draws on art history, anthropology, and gender studies to explore the disciplinary and didactic role of the images, as well as their relationship to important papal projects at the Vatican.

A comprehensive survey of American artist Mark Dion, examining three decades of his critically engaged practice interrogating our relationship with nature The first book in two decades to consider the entire oeuvre of Mark Dion (b. 1961), this volume examines thirty years of the American artist's pioneering inquiries into how we collect, interpret, and display nature. Part of a generation of artists expanding institutional critique in the 1990s, Dion adopted the methods of the archaeologist or the natural history museum, juxtaposing natural objects, taxidermy, books, and more to reorganize the natural and the manmade in poetic, witty ways. These sculptures, installations, and interventions offer novel approaches to questioning institutional power, which he sees as connected to the control and representation of nature. Generously illustrated, this publication introduces new insights and features more than seventy-five artworks.

"This book explores four decades of Robert Irwin's outdoor environment projects through his drawings and architectural models. Over the course of a storied career, Robert Irwin has come to regard art as site determined, or something that works in and responds to its surroundings. This book opens with his projects on college campuses between 1975 and 1982. These are followed by Irwin's major, yet never realized, commission for the Miami International Airport, where he proposed to transform the structure, parking lots, and roadways into a sequence of aesthetic and practical spaces that engaged directly with the South Florida environment. It then turns to one of Irwin's most celebrated works, the Central Garden at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Finally, the book takes readers to the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and one of Irwin's most ambitious works to date-a monumental artwork that brilliantly connects viewers to the land and sky. Throughout this collection of drawings, models, and photographs of magnificent, groundbreaking projects, readers will come to see Irwin as a visionary artist and a brilliant draftsman"--

"On the 100th anniversary of their deaths, Gustav Klimt and Auguste Rodin are celebrated as two pioneers of modernism who set new standards in their chosen media. Although they worked in different media, Auguste Rodin and Gustav Klimt were two artists whose output generated both incredible enthusiasm and virulent denunciation in their lifetimes. On the centenary of their deaths, in 1917 and 1918 respectively, this opulent volume highlights the remarkable parallels between the two creators: their passion for the human figure, erotic subject matter, pioneering techniques, and the achievement of international success. In chapters of alternating perspectives, this book features essays on fin-de-siècle Vienna, the phenomenon of artistic celebrity, and a tribute to the two seminal works that each artist gave the same name: The Kiss. Bringing these two masters together for the first time in such a detailed manner, this book captures a significant moment in European culture and demonstrates why their geniuses still speak so profoundly to us today."--

"Published in 2016, Modern Architecture Kuwait 1949-1989 is the first systematic analysis of Kuwait's building production. This second volume collects essays, arguments, and interviews that focus on the role of individuals and corporations in the process of perceiving, transforming, and building the modern state of Kuwait. The post-WWII environment along with political and artistic solidarity in the emerging Arab World promoted an exchange of ideas and individuals throughout the region. This edited collection uncovers the regional context that established the modern practice of architecture and planning between the 1940s and 1980s. The editors of "Modern Architecture Kuwait 1949-1989" selected a diverse group of contributors from both Kuwait and abroad to produce expertly researched and crafted essays and arguments. The interviews conducted by the editors between 2012 and 2016 appear as transcripts, while other relevant published materials produced in or on Kuwait from 1949 until 1989 are also featured. In their own essays, the editors explore broader topics such as the political and socio-economic process of modernisation in the country, the educational and professional establishment of the architectural practice in the region, and the development of a contemporary construction industry in Kuwait. Also, the volume's introduction includes an atlas that traces the movement of architects, planners, and projects for and from Kuwait, mapping a series of unprecedented reciprocities between geographical, economic, political, and social realities in the Arab World. The second collection expands far beyond the first volume, challenging different narratives while also connecting divergent spheres to offer readers a critical look at a local perspective based on a regional context"--Back cover.

The basis for our understanding of Leonardo's theory of art was, for over 150 years, his Treatise on Painting, which was issued in 1651 in Italian and French. This present volume offers both the first scholarly edition of the Italian editio princeps as well as the first complete English translation of this seminal work. In addition, It provides a comprehensive study of the Italian first edition, documenting how each editorial campaign that lead to it produced a different understanding of the artist's theory. What emerges is a rich cultural and textual history that foregrounds the transmission of artisanal knowledge from Leonardo's workshop in the Duchy of Milan to Carlo Borromeo's Milan, Cosimo I de' Medici's Florence, Urban VIII's Rome, and Louis XIV's Paris. -- !c From book jacket.

Tradition & transitions : eighteenth-century French art from the Horvitz Collection
edited by Alvin L. Clark, Jr. ; preface by Pierre Rosenberg de l'Académie française
[Boston, Massachusetts] : The Horvitz Collection, 
This exhibition and its accompanying catalogue provide the visitor and reader with an exploration of the "tradition and transitions" of manners and themes that formed and shifted throughout the art of eighteenth-century France. Examples of works that reveal both the concurrent and successive styles of the long eighteenth-century of French draftsmanship from Charles de La Fosse and Jean-Baptiste Jouvenet at the end of the seventeenth century to the genesis of the Rococo (Claude Gillot, Jean-Antoine Watteau, François Le Moyne) and the Generation of 1700 (Edme Bouchardon, François Boucher, Michel-François Dandré-Bardon, Jacques Dumont, CharlesJoseph Natoire, Pierre-Hubert Subleyras, the Vanloos, which took the French School to its early maturity. Their students, particularly Jean-Honoré Fragonard and Hubert Robert, benefited from and greatly expanded upon this rich inheritance as some of their contemporaries (Charles-Nicolas Cochin le jeune, Joseph-Marie Vien, Jean-Baptiste Deshays, Gabriel-François Doyen) simultaneously searched for a new, less florid mode of expression that eventually led to the Neoclassicism of JacquesLouis David and his generation in the closing decades of the century. Their students then explored stylistic and thematic variations of that manner into the next century. The wealth of this collection enables visitors to see a full array of the art made within these successive generations by well-known masters as well as by lesser-known artists who were often considered to be their equals in their own time. It also reveals the large variety of regional styles from artists working in important centers other than Paris.

The hysterical material
organized by Geof Oppenheimer with Anne Leonard ; with essays by Mieke Bal, Anita Chari, Ankhi Mukherjee and Geof Oppenheimer
Chicago : The Smart Museum of Art and Soberscove Press, 2017
Like us all / by Geof Oppenheimer -- Material matters / by Mieke Bal -- Exhibition images -- Exhibition checklist -- The hysterical material / by Ankhi Mukherjee -- Hysterical phenomenologies / by Anita Chari.
Published in relation to an exhibition of the same name at the Smart Museum of Art at The University of Chicago, The Hysterical Material is a book about feelings and emotion. Specifically, it is about how these twin registers are represented and produced in both the materiality of the body and in the objects we call art.00Beginning with the premise that hysteria can be best understood phenomenologically rather than in pathological terms, this publication considers the possibilities of the body as an emotional instrument not always understood by the rational mind. This potential is investigated in the work of two leading artists of Western art history, Auguste Rodin (1840?1917) and Bruce Nauman (born 1941). The body is something used and depicted in the work of both of these artists; however, they employ it in radically different ways. While Rodin was a master of conflating representation and material, Nauman uses figurative representation to plumb the depths of the psychological body. Calling attention to the artists? mutual artistic concerns, this publication explores the multiple possibilities of a bodily and affective engagement with art.00Exhibition: Smart Museum of Art at The University of Chicago, USA (14.09.-17.12.2017).

Gothic effigy brings together for the first time the multifarious visual motifs and media associated with Gothic, many of which have never received serious study before. This guide is the most comprehensive work in its field, a study aid that draws links between a considerable array of Gothic visual works and artifacts, from the work of Salvator Rosa and the first illustrations of Gothic Blue Books to the latest Gothic painters and graphic artists. Currently popular areas such as Gothic fashion, gaming, T.V. and film are considered, as well as the ghostly images of magic lantern shows. This groundbreaking study will serve as an invaluable reference and research book. In its wide range and closely detailed descriptions, it will be very attractive for students, academics, collectors, fans of popular Gothic culture and general readers.

Images of sex and desire in Renaissance art and modern historiography
edited by Angeliki Pollali and Berthold Hub
New York : Routledge, 2018
Studies on gender and sexuality have proliferated in the last decades covering a wide spectrum of disciplines. This anthology offers a metanarrative of sexuality as it has been recently embedded in the art historical discourse of the European Renaissance. It revisits 'canonical' forms of visual culture, such as painting, sculpture and a number of emblematic manuscripts. The contributors focus on one image, either actual or thematic, and examine it against its historiographic assumptions. Through the use of interdisciplinary approaches, the essays propose to unmask the ideology(ies) of representation of sexuality and suggest a richer image of the ever shifting identities of gender. The anthology focuses on the Italian Renaissance, but also includes case studies from Germany and France.

London, UK : Lund Humphries, 2017
Route finder -- Unusual views of outstanding sites -- Vanity fair -- Egor'evsk cultural club -- Whatever happened to Frank Lloyd Wright? -- When Frank met Francesco -- A short taxi ride around the Persian gulf -- Minority reports.
"Frank Lloyd Wright is known as the architect of an enduring modern American vision, but was himself extremely well-travelled, with journeys to far-flung corners of the world serving as opportunities to develop and promote his globalising 'organic' philosophy. Visits to Japan and Germany informed his Prairie House period, his Usonian manifesto was presented in Russia and the UK, and later he spent time in Italy and the Middle East during his Legacy period. Gwyn Lloyd Jones retraces Lloyd Wright's footsteps in a fascinating globetrotting narrative that reveals Lloyd Wright's architectural legacy as having emerged from what was, at the time, a newly globalised era of architectural production. Along the way the author meets the people who are living with and experiencing Lloyd Wright's 'organic' architecture today and asks whether the buildings remain true to Wright's intent and what it is that makes them unique."--Jacket flap.

Heaven and Hell : salvation and retribution in Pure Land Buddhism
Emily J. Sano, Randall Nadeau, Alison J. Miller ; editor, Erin Kathleen Murphy ; introduction by Katherine Crawford Luber
San Antonio, Texas : San Antonio Museum of Art, 
"Heaven and Hell: Salvation and Retribution in Pure Land Buddhism, will bring together approximately seventy paintings, sculpture, and works of decorative arts to survey the artistic expressions of the Pure Land faith. Pure Land Buddhism is based on belief in Amitabha, the Buddha of the Western Paradise, who promises salvation in his heavenly paradise after death to all those who will simply call upon his name. The appeal of easy salvation made faith in Amitabha one of the most popular forms of Buddhism throughout Asia, where it inspired the development of beautiful and diverse works of art. To introduce the subject, the exhibition will include a selection of works from the continent of Asia, such as the Gandhara region of India, Southeast Asia, China, Tibet, and Korea, which show the endurance of Pure Land motifs across continents for a thousand years. The majority of the show will be focused on Japanese works of art that illustrate how Amitabha will descend to earth from his heaven to greet a dying soul, scenes of hell, the numerous divine beings that are put on earth to guide the faithful and assist those who have fallen into hell escape that terrible fate"--

I. Picasso and the "primitive" arts. 1900-1974 chronology -- II. Body to body. Archaisms -- Metamorphoses -- The ID -- III. The essays. Nothing but the primitive / Yves Le Fur -- Beneath the painting / Gérard Wajcman -- Louise's ass / Stéphane Breton -- Selected bibliography -- List of works exhibited.
"Picasso once famously - and provocatively - declared that he was not acquainted with African art. yet hundreds of archival documents and photographs - in addition to reproductions of his artworks alongside so-called "primitive" works from Africa and Oceania, as well as the Americas and Asia - illustrate how such art was a continual source of inspiration for the master artist throughout his career. Divided into three parts, this comprehensive tome explores Picasso's fascination with art from outside of Europe. A chronology - spanning from his arrival in Paris in 1900 to 1974, the year following his death - highlights the principal points of intersection between the artist and "primitive" art: where he encountered it, which pieces he collected, and the resonances found in his own creations. Each date is elucidated through facts, testimonial accounts, and photographs, as well as comments from Picasso himself. The second part examines the thematic links between Picasso's oeuvre and diverse non-European works, providing side-by-side comparisons that reveal recurrent themes - nudity, sexuality, impulses, death, and more - along with parallel artistic expressions of those themes, such as the disfiguration or destruction of the body. Essays by three authoritative authors complete the exploration, providing context and valuable insight into the influence of these works on Picasso and the lasting and meaningful bond he had with them."

Den Haag : Mauritshuis ; 
Jan Steen is een van de populairste schilders uit de Hollandse Gouden Eeuw. Hij staat bekend om zijn komische voorstellingen van verlopen huishoudens, vertier in de herberg, kwakzalvers en liefdeszieke meisjes. Minder bekend is dat hij ook historiestukken schilderde: onderwerpen uit de Bijbel, apocriefe geschriften en mythologie. Het zijn verhalen vol opwinding, drama en hartstocht. Net als in zijn genrestukken besteedt Steen in deze schilderijen veel aandacht aan de interactie tussen de figuren. Ook heeft hij een scherp oog voor de humoristische mogelijkheden van ieder verhaal. 0Anders dan de latere beeldvorming als grappenmaker doet vermoeden, was Jan Steen een veelzijdig en ambitieus kunstenaar met een grote literaire en kunsthistorische kennis. Die kennis kwam vooral in zijn historiestukken goed van pas. Deze rijk geïllustreerde publicatie gaat over dit relatief onbekende deel van het oeuvre van Jan Steen. Het boek bevat drie essays over de historiestukken van Jan Steen, gevolgd door een kleurrijk deel waarin een selectie van de belangrijkste schilderijen met Bijbelse en mythologische onderwerpen wordt besproken.00Exhibition: Mauritshuis, The Hague, The Netherlands (from 02.2018).

Volume 1. Licenciado Verdad / editado por Patricia Sloane y Kurt Hollander
Licenciado Verdad tells the story of a generation of artists and curators that substantially transformed Mexico's contemporary art scene in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The title alludes to the now iconic building located on the Calle Licenciado Verdad in Mexico City's historic center, which, for a period of about ten years, cradled the movement. It was there that artists, writers, and curators of the likes of María Guerra, Eloy Tarcisio, Silvia Gruner, Michael Tracy, Thomas Glassford, Melanie Smith, and Francis Alÿs made their homes and studios. Works of art, individual and group exhibitions, parties and gatherings that summoned active personalities of the most diverse kind took place in this building, turning it into a model of production and diffusion of contemporary art. Together with other spaces in the centro histórico, such as Aldo Flores's Salón dès Aztecas or La Casona, under the direction of Guillermo Santamarina, the building on Licenciado Verdad became a platform for the experimentation of new languages in the visual arts. --

The Temple of Peace in Rome
Tucci, Pier Luigi, author
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2017
In this magisterial two-volume book, Pier Luigi Tucci offers a comprehensive examination of one of the key complexes of Ancient Rome, the Temple of Peace. Based on archival research and an architectural survey, his research sheds new light on the medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque transformations of the basilica, and the later restorations of the complex. Volume 1 focuses on the foundation of the complex under Vespasian until its restoration under Septimius Severus and challenges the accepted views about the ancient building. Volume 2 begins with the remodelling of the library hall and the construction of the rotunda complex, and examines the dedication of the Christian Basilica of SS Cosmas and Damian. Of interest to scholars in a range of topics, 'The Temple of Peace in Rome' crosses the boundaries between classics, archaeology, history of architecture, and art history, through Late Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the early modern period.

A chronology of art : a timeline of Western culture from prehistory to the present
edited by Iain Zaczek
New York, New York : Thames & Hudson, 2018
Ancient & medieval -- Renaissance & baroque -- Rococo & neoclassicism -- Romanticism & beyond -- The modern era.
"A fresh take on the history of art, using cultural timelines to reveal little-known connections and influences between artworks and artistic movements. Most surveys of the history of art are divided into historic periods, artistic schools, and movements. In reality, movements and artists' careers overlap and intertwine, reacting to events in the world around them. By prioritizing a purely chronological approach, A Chronology of Art illuminates these relationships from a fresh perspective and places the developments of the art world into context with one another. Structured around a central timeline covering Ancient & Medieval, Renaissance & Baroque, Rococo & Neoclassicism, Romanticism & Beyond, and The Modern Era, the book features lavish illustrations of artworks, together with commentaries, and lively "In Focus" features with information about the social, stylistic, technical, political, and cultural events of each period. This approach reveals little- known connections: the most illustrious Neoclassical painting (David's Oath of the Horatii) was executed just a couple of years after one of the best-known Romantic scenes (Fuseli's The Nightmare); and American artist James Whistler, who had attended West Point Military Academy, was creating his finest work in Europe at the very time when his homeland was being torn apart by civil war."--

Alessandro Twombly : sculptures
editor, Urs Albrecht ; translations, Uta Protz
Berlin : Hatje Cantz, 
Unlike the sculptures by his father Cy Twombly, who assembled them as if they were collages composed of found pieces, Alessandro Twombly's (*1959 in Rome) works are organic-looking sculptures made from a single piece of material. They recall fossilized coral, hardened streams of lava, objects found on the beach, or statues of archaic divinities. As different as they are from one another in appearance, they all invoke the elementary forces of nature. Their dynamic shapes visualize the idea of metamorphosis, the eternal transformation that is the basis for growth. Marks of Twombly's work are left on the surfaces of some of the sculptures, which are first cast in plaster or clay, and then in bronze or resin. In this survey of his work, which features Twombly's sculptures from 1986 to 2016, one can see the processes and developments that have been inscribed in the material.--From publisher's website.

"Uprising" is a transdisciplinary exposition about collective emotions and political events insofar as they involve mass movements in struggle. It is then about the social disorders, the political agitations, the insubordinations, the revolts, the agitations and the revolutions, of all kinds held at MUAC 24 de febrero al 29 de julio 2018. The project is based on a historical and theoretical work that Georges Didi-Huberman (France 1953), philosopher and historian of art, who has been doing for years, mainly through the series of books entitled L'oeil de l'histoire (The Eye of History), that in their last deliveries face the question by the representation of the towns in the aesthetic and political sense of the word representation. The figure of the uprising is presented through more than 250 works including manuscripts, documents, paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and films, to show how artists have addressed these issues at different historical moments. The exhibition route follows a sensitive and intuitive path in which the view can be focused on concrete examples across five areas: Elements (unchained); Gestures (intense); Words (exclaimed); Conflicts (lit); and Desires (indestructible).

The pixels of Paul Cézanne and reflections on other artists
Wenders, Wim, author
London : Faber & Faber, 2018
"The Pixels of Paul Cezanne is a collection of essays by Wim Wenders in which he presents his observations and reflections on the fellow artists who have influenced, shaped, and inspired him. How are they doing it? is the key questions Wenders asks as he looks at the dance work of Pina Bausch, the paintings of Cezanne, Edward Hopper of Andrew Wyeth, or the films of Ingmar Bergman, Michelanelo Antonioni, Ozu, Anthony Mann, Douglas Sirk, and Sam Fuller. He finds the answer by writing about them, trying to understand their individual perspective, and, in the process revealing his own art of perception, in texts of rare poignancy."--

The friaries of medieval London : from foundation to dissolution

The friaries of medieval London formed an important part of the city's physical and spiritual landscape between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries. These urban monasteries housed 300 or more preacher-monks who lived an enclosed religious life and went out into the city to preach. The most important orders were the Dominican Black friars and the Franciscan Grey friars but London also had houses of Augustine, Carmelite and Crossed friars, and, in the thirteenth century, Sack and Pied friars. This book offers an illustrated interdisciplinary study of these religious houses, combining archaeological, documentary, cartographic and architectural evidence to reconstruct the layout and organisation of nine priories. After analysing and describing the great churches and cloisters, and their precincts with burial grounds and gardens, it moves on to examine more general historical themes, including the spiritual life of the friars, their links to living and dead Londoners, and the role of the urban monastery. The closure of these friaries in the 1530s is also discussed, along with a brief revival of one friary in the reign of Mary.

"This book addresses how artifacts and objects of contemporary art create meaning and mythology in equal measure. What challenges does exhibiting a work pose to the inherent muteness of objects? How do artists choose to speak on behalf of inanimate artifacts and byproducts of material culture and the natural world? This volume coincides with an exhibition that examines these questions and is organized around the idea that objects possess narrative histories that the conventions of display can only, at best, approximate. In recent years, the continued emphasis on an art of ideas--inherited from the legacies of Conceptual and post-Conceptual art--has sought to broaden the function of everyday objects. Artists have, as a result, developed textual and non-textual approaches that reveal a faith in objects to communicate as well as skepticism of the promises of unmediated expression. The book is illustrated with works by Darren Bader, Kasper Bosmans, Carol Bove, Andrea Buttner, Jason Dodge, Haris Epaminonda, Iman Issa, Hassan Khan, Antonio Vega Macotela, Jill Magid, Dave McKenzie, Christodoulos Panayiotou, and others"--

This lavishly designed volume offers a fresh reexamination of Dove that is sure to become essential reading for scholars and fans alike.

Picasso and the art of drawing
Lloyd, Christopher, 1945- author
London : Modern Art Press, 2018
In this generously illustrated and lively book, Christopher Lloyd sets out and interprets the lifelong achievement of Picasso (1881-1973) as a draftsman. Although there have been many publications about his drawings that have tended to focus on particular periods of his career, this stunning volume specifically examines how drawing serves as the vital thread connecting all of Picasso's art, just as it also links his private world with his public persona of which he was becoming increasingly aware in his later years. Picasso and the Art of Drawing ultimately showcases how the basis of the titular artist's style as painter, sculptor, printmaker, and designer was manifestly achieved through drawing.

Corot was one of the most significant painters involved with the barbizonists. Studying the Reims holdings further, it seemed evident to edit a catalogue and curate an exhibition that reaches from the romantic spirit in French landscape painting to the School of Barbizon on to the group of artists around Eugène-Louis Boudin at Honfleur - the true cradle of Impressionism - and lastly to the impressionists Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.00Exhibition: Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Winter Park, USA (20.01.-08.04.2018) / Frye Art Museum, Seattle, USA (12.05.-05.08.2018).

Inspired by the grandeur of 'the Rockies and the Alps', American and European artists strove to capture their power in paint. In the mid-19th century, when photographers, scientists, and armchair travellers were awakening to these wonders, improved transportation and accommodations made mountains and glaciers more accessible. This richly illustrated volume brings together dazzling depictions of the Rockies and the Alps, while investigating how geology, flora and fauna, and social and literary contexts relate to the rise of alpine landscape painting.

Roma : Fondazione Giorgio e Isa De Chirico ; 
De Chirico and the United Kingdom (c.1916-1978) constitutes the first in-depth study into de Chirico's lifelong relationship with the country. Detailing over 60 years' worth of activity through c. 550 documents, this publication establishes the fundamental importance that the UK played in the artist's career with his work appearing in no less than 85 exhibitions, 49 of which are documented here for the first time. The recent discovery of extensive correspondence, press reviews and other documentation has enabled a thorough examination of three solo exhibitions held in London (Alex. Reid & Lefevre Ltd., 1938, Royal Society of British Artists, 1949, and Wildenstein Gallery, 1976); successful and failed acquisition bids for de Chirico's artwork in the public sector, as well as the 1962-1964 controversy involving the Tate's display of three paintings (on long-term loan from Edward James) that the artist denounced as fake.

Birds of a feather : Joseph Cornell's homage to Juan Gris
McKinley, Mary Clare, author
New York : The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 
Joseph Cornell first viewed Cubist painter Juan Gris's The Man at the Café in October 1953. This visual encounter prompted Cornell to create more than a dozen hand-constructed shadow boxes as homages to Gris, each featuring a variation on a motif that echoes formal elements in Gris's painting. This unique book explores Cornell's deep fascination with Gris, uncovering within Cornell's work multiple allusions to Gris's crucial influence and investigating cross-currents such as the artists' shared interests in French culture and the ballet. Birds of a Feather yields a new perspective on Cornell's famed boxes while also shedding light on Gris's painting, establishing points of connection between two key figures of the avant-garde who lived a generation apart.

"The Poetry of Nature offers an in-depth look at more than 40 extraordinary Japanese paintings that represent every major school and movement of the Edo period, including Kano, Rinpa, Nanga, Zen, Maruyama-Shijo, and Ukiyo-e. The unifying theme is a celebration of the natural world, expressed in varied forms, from the bold, graphic manner of Rinpa to the muted sensitivity of Nanga. Among the artists whose works are included are Ike Taiga (1723-1776), Maruyama Okyo (1733-1795), and Sakai Hoitsu (1761-1828). John T. Carpenter looks specifically at the intertwinement of painting and poetry, a Japanese artistic tradition that reached new heights during the Edo period. In addition to new readings and translations of Japanese and Chinese poems, Carpenter sheds light on the ways in which Edo artists used verse to transform their paintings into a hybrid literary and visual art."--Publisher's description.

Michel Sittow (c. 1469-1525) was the greatest Estonian artist of the Renaissance. As his renown as a portraitist spread among the royal courts of Europe in the late fifteenth century, Sittow led the life of the itinerant artist, leaving his native Reval, the Hanseatic port city known today as Tallinn, to reside at courts in Spain, The Netherlands, and Denmark. Michel Sittow: Estonian Painter at the Courts of Renaissance Europe is the first monographic exhibit of this masterful artist's oeuvre. The 144-page catalog with 90 illustrations features rare paintings by Sittow and other art works by his contemporaries, along with insightful essays by leading European and American scholars including John Oliver Hand of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and Greta Koppel of the Art Museum of Estonia, Tallinn.--Provided by publisher.

Gorey's worlds : seen and imagined / Erin Monroe -- The man who wanted to be entertained / Robert Greskovic -- Understanding Gorey's human-animal world / Arnold Arluke -- Edward Gorey : nonsense, surrealism and silent matter / Kevin Shortsleeve.
"The illustrator, designer, and writer Edward Gorey (1925-2000) is beloved for his droll, surreal, and slightly sinister drawings. Gorey's Worlds delves into the numerous and surprising cultural and artistic sources that influenced Gorey's unique visual language. A variety of objects shaped his artistic mindset, from popular culture to the more than 26,000 books he owned and the works of art in his vast collection. This collection, which Gorey gifted to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art upon his death, is diverse in style, subject, and media, and includes prints by Eugene Delacroix, Charles Meryon, Edvard Munch, and Odilon Redon; photographs by Eugene Atget; and drawings by Balthus, Pierre Bonnard, Charles Burchfield, Bill Traylor, and Edouard Vuillard. The essays in Gorey's Worlds also examine such consuming passions as animals-cats in particular-and ballet. Featuring a sumptuous selection of Gorey's creations alongside his fascinating and diverse collections, Gorey's Worlds reveals the private world that inspired one of the most idiosyncratic artists of the twentieth century."--

The long roots of formalism in Brazil
Martins, Luiz Renato, author
Leiden ; Brill, 
The present studies on Brazilian modern art seek to specify some of the dominant contradictions of capitalism's combined but uneven development as these appear from the global ̀periphery'. The grand project of Brasilia is the main theme of the first two chapters, which treat the ìdeal city' as a case study in the ways in which creative talent in Brazil has been made to serve in the reproduction of social iniquities whose origins can be traced back to the agrarian latifundia. Further chapters scrutinise the socio-historical basis of Brazilian art, and develop, against the grain of the most prominent art historical approaches to modern Brazilian culture, a critical approach to the distinctly Brazilian visual language of geometrical abstraction. The book contends that, from the fifties up to today, formalism in Brazil has expressed the hegemony of the market.

Art of the Northern Renaissance : courts, commerce and devotion
Porras, Stephanie, author
London : Laurence King Publishing, 2018
In this account, Stephanie Porras charts the fascinating story of art in northern Europe during the Renaissance period (c.1400-1570). She explains how artists and patrons from the regions north of the Alps - the Low Countries, France, England, Germany - responded to an era of rapid political, social, economic and religious change, while redefining the status of art. Porras discusses not only paintings by artists from Jan van Eyck to Pieter Bruegel, but also sculpture, architecture, prints, metalwork, embroidery, tapestry and armour. Each chapter presents works from a roughly twenty-year period and is also focused on a broad thematic issue, such as the flourishing of the print industry or the mobility of Northern artists and art works. The author traces the influence of aristocratic courts as centres of artistic production and the rise of an urban merchant class leading to the creation of new consumers and new art products. This book offers a richly illustrated narrative that allows readers to understand the progression, variety and key conceptual developments of Northern Renaissance Art.

The power of gold : Asante royal regalia from Ghana
edited by Roslyn A. Walker ; with contributions by Martha J. Ehrlich and four others
Dallas : Dallas Museum of Art, 
This stunning volume showcases and explores a rich and varied collection of Asante royal regalia in the broader context of Asante art. The Asante Kingdom, founded around 1701 in the Gold Coast (now Ghana), was renowned for gold, the foundation of its wealth and power. For centuries they mined this metal and traded it with northerners on the Saharan caravan routes and Europeans along the Atlantic coast. The earliest examples of Asante gold were recovered from the wreck of the Whydah, a slave ship that sank off Cape Cod in 1717. The Power of Gold focuses on a dazzling array of adornments and implements used by Asante royals and officials during the 18th century to the present day-providing a deeper understanding of the history, traditions, and visual arts of the Asante people, one of the thriving cultures of West Africa.

Fashioning revenge: costume, crime, and contamination of Barbey d'Aurevilly's La Vengeance d'une femme / Kasia Stempniak -- 6. Fashions from Hell: the enduring influence of Jack the Ripper on dress / Alanna McKnight -- 7. Slasher consciousness: class, killer clothes, and heterogeneity / Nigel Lezama -- 8. Fashioning Frankenstein in film: monsters and men / Rafael Jaen and Robert I. Lublin -- 9. Horrific transformations: costume, gender, and the Halloween franchise / Nadia Buick and Alexandra Heller-Nicholas -- 10. Faces if rage: masks, murderers, and motives in the Canadian slasher film / Rose Butler -- 11. Massacres and masquerades: the costume in the American slasher film and the cultural myth of the "foolkiller" / Florent Christol.
From Jack the Ripper to Frankenstein, Halloween customs to Alexander McQueen collections, Fashioning Horror examines how terror is fashioned visually, symbolically, and materially through fashion and costume, in literature, film, and real life. With a series of case studies that range from sensationalist cinema and slasher films to true crime and nineteenth-century literature, the volume investigates the central importance of clothing to the horror genre, and broadens our understanding of both material and popular culture. Arguing that dress is fundamental to our understanding of character and setting within horror, the chapters also reveal how the grotesque and horrific is at the center of fashion itself, with its potential for instability, disguise, and carnivalesque subversion. Packed with original research, and bringing together a range of international scholars, the book is the first to thoroughly examine the aesthetics of terror and the role of fashion in the construction of horror--back cover.

Marble halls : beaux-arts classicism and civic architecture in the Gilded Age
Craven, Wayne, author
Newark, Delaware : University of Delaware Press ; 
Preface -- Introduction: the giant rises -- The world's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893 -- City planning: the city beautiful movement and the resurgence of classical architecture -- A palazzo of knowledge: the Boston Public Library -- The Library of Congress: democracy's palace -- Civic grandeur, civic religion, architecture, and allegory: "We have learned to live with magnificence" -- Westward the course of governance takes its way: mighty domes arise in the Midwest -- The great American train station: Roman Doric homes for the iron horse -- Libraries across the land: the halls of Carnegie -- Palaces of art: The Met and the mogul -- The gentleman's club: a home away from home; or a palazzo away from the palazzo -- Conclusion: the last, but magnificent, hurrahs.
About American architecture as designed in the Classical Beaux-Arts manner during the Gilded Age - that is, between the Civil War and World War I - and its extension to the early 1940s, as it paralleled the rise of the Modern mode. It is about the transition that occurred as the nation changed from being mainly agrarian and largely concerned with internal matters, such as the settlement of the vast interior of the West, to being a mighty industrial and financial giant of international standing and global concerns. Yet the leaders of the Gilded Age chose to accept the nation's heritage as a beneficiary of Western culture. In erecting and decorating its major civic buildings, they chose the classicism of the Beaux-Arts style to assert America's new leadership role, to declare its high-mindedness, to display the creative energies of its financiers, industrialists, and mega-merchants, its inventors, architects, painters, sculptors, artisans, and keepers of culture, and to house its institutions and commercial enterprises such as courthouses, libraries, art museums, train stations, and social clubs.

Fausto Melotti : quando la musica diventa scultura
a cura di Francesco Poli, Paolo Repetto
Milano : Skira, 
Artista poliedrico, rinascimentale - insieme scultore, pittore, ceramista, scrittore, grande appassionato di musica - Fausto Melotti (Rovereto 1901 - Milano 1986) è stato uno dei grandi protagonisti dell'arte del Novecento.0Questa monografia desidera sottolineare i due principali aspetti della sua ricerca: da una parte la profonda ispirazione musicale, dall'altra la grande passione per il pensiero di Platone e l'arte dell'antica Grecia. Attraverso oltre ottanta opere - dalle ben note sculture in ottone e acciaio, alle raffinatissime ceramiche e alle opere dipinte, prevalentemente tecniche miste su carta e anche su pannelli in gesso - il volume illustra il suo iter creativo, anche grazie ai suoi bellissimi pensieri e aforismi. Una sezione intitolata "Assonanze" vedrà dialogare le opere di Fausto Melotti con quelle di un gruppo di importanti artisti a lui particolarmente affini: Depero, Martini, Klee, Kandinskij, Miró, Calder, Licini, Fontana, Morandi, Munari, Novelli, Anselmo, Gribaudo, Paolini.0Si racchiude così in Fausto Melotti, e nel volume a lui dedicato, un legame profondo tra le arti, tale da rispecchiare il lavoro della Fondazione Cosso che, dal 2008, propone occasioni di dialogo e contaminazione tra diverse espressioni e discipline artistiche.

Elke Härtel : Rapunzel : Genese einer Skulptur = genesis of a sculpture
Petra Giloy-Hirtz ; Übersetzung, Bram Opstelten
München : Hirmer, 
Rapunzel, the famous fairy-tale character of the Brothers Grimm, comes from the world of magic. She is the girl, lover, woman and mother who escapes from imprisonment. Elke Härtel awakens Rapunzel to new life, modelled in clay and then cast in plaster and bronze. The publication documents the fascinating process of creation with lavish illustrations. Elke Härtel draws on inner pictorial worlds as well as on fairy tales, myths and religious concepts. She takes her strong, usually female figures from the depths of dreams and from literary references. Born in 1978, she studied at the Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin and the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Her sculptures and large-format drawings have already been shown in the Lenbachhaus München and in the Diocesan Museum in Freising, amongst other places. Thanks to her numerous projects in the public space she occupies an influential position in contemporary sculpture, as this evocative pictorial volume impressively demonstrates.

Manuelle Gautrand Architects
Mulgrave, Vic. Images Publishing Group Pty Ltd, 2017
Manuelle Gautrand Architecture is a Parisian-based architecture firm founded by Manuelle Gautrand in 1991, sited in the Bastille neighbourhood of this exquisite European city. The firm's key aim is to 're-enchant the city' of Paris by evoking emotion, reinventing spaces, and garnering renewal and innovation - to be bold and definitive. At the core of Gautrand's creativity lies the approach to each new project through the spirit of a blank canvas, with no a priori. Yet, each of the project that this firm produces expresses a specific relationship to the site: a desire to revive it and enchant; a deep commitment to working on programs entrusted to the firm; ensure efficiency, flexibility and surprise. Each project is a unique and symbolic encounter. Fuelled by shared ideas and prominent for its breadth of practice, this book documents the comprehensive collection of Manuelle Gautrand Architecture's design solutions. It celebrates the intuitive and stunning designs, and the firm's commitment to beauty, revival, boldness and precision.

Woelk, Moritz, author
Munich : Hirmer Verlag, 
The sculptress Stella Hamberg (b. 1975) usually opts for the classical material bronze which has traditionally combined durability with metamorphosis, if only in the amalgamation of different metals achieved through melting. Essential to the figures she creates are their existence in time and ability to transform, as well as eternity in the moment. Seeking to express the spiritual in the physical forms - from the overall pose down to the subtleties of sculptural detail and the surface shimmer - has been a concern of sculptors ever since antiquity. The reinterpretation of this grand tradition is one aspect of the topicality of her works.

Brand new : art & commodity in the 1980s
edited by Gianni Jetzer ; with essays by Gianni Jetzer, Bob Nickas, Leah Pires ; chronology by Patrick Jaojoco
New York, NY : Rizzoli Electa ; 
This groundbreaking book, accompanying a major exhibition at the Hirshhorn, tells the story of the evolution of New York's downtown art scene in the 1980s' from a DIY counterculture in the East Village to a legitimate gallery business in SoHo. Coinciding with the rise of modern branding and the onset of the information age, artists' focus on commodities and consumerism began as satire but came to be much more complex: commodities and associated phenomena, such as advertising, now served as vessels for ideas, politics, and personal relationships in 'brand-new' types of painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and performance. In a book full of visual surprises, newly commissioned essays shed new light on this pivotal period: curator Gianni Jetzer provides a comprehensive overview, while Leah Pires illuminates lesser-known conceptual collaborations, and Bob Nickas offers an eyewitness account of the East Village gallery scene. These texts, together with an illustrated chronology, provide a fresh account of the moment at which contemporary artists such as Felix González-Torres, Peter Halley, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Sherrie Levine, Richard Prince, and Cindy Sherman grabbed the ball from Andy Warhol and ran with it, changing the rules of the game forever.

Chagalls künstlerischer Durchbruch vollzog sich zwischen zwei gegensätzlichen Polen. Von 1911-1914 lebte Chagall in Paris. In dieser Zeit kombinierte er in seinen Gemälden Erinnerungen aus dem russischen Provinzleben mit ikonischen Bruchstücken aus dem Leben in der Metropole. Reminiszenzen an die russische Volkskunst wurden ebenso verarbeitet wie neueste stilistische Experimente, denen er durch das Leben im Mittelpunkt der künstlerischen Avantgarde und durch die Bekanntschaft mit vielen der progressivsten Künstler, darunter Picasso, Robert und Sonja Delaunay sowie Jacques Lipchitz, ausgesetzt war. Der Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges überraschte Chagall während einer Reise in seine Heimat und zwang ihn zu einem achtjährigen Aufenthalt in Russland. Es folgte eine Phase intensiver Selbstreflexion, von der viele Gemälde und Arbeiten auf Papier um 1914 Zeugnis ablegen. In dieser Zeit entstanden zahlreiche Selbstportraits, Darstellungen des jüdischen Lebens und Entwürfe für das Bühnenbild zur Jahresfeier der Oktoberrevolution 1918. Der Band enthält eine repräsentative Auswahl von Werken aus dieser künstlerisch, biografisch und politisch bewegten Zeit.

Dublin's bourgeois homes : building the Victorian suburbs, 1850-1901
Galavan, Susan, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
In 1859, Dubliners strolling along country roads witnessed something new emerging from the green fields. The Victorian house had arrived: wide red brick structures stood back behind large front lawns. Over the next forty years, an estimated 35,000 homes were built in the fields surrounding the city. Distinguished by their elaborate entrances and imposing granite staircases, Dublin produced its own unique version of the Victorian house form. Today, these houses are some of the capital's most highly valued structures, and are protected under strict conservation laws. However, despite their significance, there has been little research on those behind their creation, and of the complex processes which brought them into being. Based on measured surveys, photographs, and contemporary drawings and maps, this book is the first in depth analysis of Dublin's Victorian domestic architecture. Focusing on the work of three entrepreneurial developers, who built high quality houses in different sectors, it follows in their footsteps as they speculated in house building: signing leases, acquiring plots, and sourcing bricks and mortar. What motivated them to invest in the housing market, and how did they finance their operations? It considers the roles of landowners and local government in supporting the suburbs: by supplying land, providing services and controlling building standards.

This book explores technologies related to bodily interaction and creativity from a multi-disciplinary perspective. By taking such an approach, the collection offers a comprehensive view of digital technology research that both extends our notions of the body and creativity through a digital lens, and informs of the role of technology in practices central to the arts and humanities. Crucially, Digital Bodies foregrounds creativity, the interrogation of technologies and the notion of embodiment within the various disciplines of art, design, performance and social science. In doing so, it explores a potential or virtual new sense of the embodied self. This book will appeal to academics, practitioners and those with an interest in not only how digital technologies affect the body, but also how they can enhance human creativity.

The wall was his passion. If we look at urban walls with the eyes of Burhan Dogançay a completely different world opens up: half-ripped posters on rough brickwork, covered in graffiti, scribblings, messages, signs, stickers. From this rich stock of structures, signs and symbols the artist created his wall fragments, his 'Urban Walls'. Dogançay (1929-2013) was born in Istanbul and settled in New York in 1964, where he moved within the art scene around Robert Rauschenberg und Jasper Johns. His subject is the visual perception of texture, place and memory, which he researches in serial works. For his 'Urban Walls' he records house walls and façades all over the world in a variety of media, using a wide range of materials and techniques such as photography, collage and painting. His works are archives of past decades which capture the spirit of the times. From the 1970s and 1980s he progresses from these works to develop his 'Ribbons' - calligraphic paintings of poetic charm. Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (06.07.-08.10.2017).

The age of glass : a cultural history of glass in modern and contemporary architecture
Eskilson, Stephen, 1964- author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2018
The age of glass -- Stained glass -- Daylight -- Glass visions -- Structural glass -- Shade -- The politics of glass.
Glass has long transformed the architectural landscape. From the Crystal Palace through to the towering glass spires of today's cities, few architectural materials have held such immense symbolic resonance in the modern era. 'The Age of Glass' explores the cultural and technological ascension of glass in modern and contemporary architecture. Showing how the use of glass is driven as much by changing cultural concerns as it is by developments in technology and style, it traces the richly interwoven material, symbolic, and ideological histories of glass to show how it has produced and dispersed meaning in architecture over the past two centuries. The book's chapters focus on key moments within the modern history of architecture, moments when glass came to the forefront of architectural thought, and which illustrate how glass has been used at different times to project different cultural ideas.

Affect, emotion, and subjectivity in early modern Muslim Empires : new studies in Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal art and culture
edited by Kishwar Rizvi
Leiden ; Brill, 
Introduction : affect, emotion, and subjectivity in the early modern period / Kishwar Rizvi -- Chasing after the Muhandis : visual articulations of the architect and architectural historiography / Sussan Babaie -- Who's hiding here? Artists and their signatures in Timurid and Safavid manuscripts / Marianna Shreve Simpson -- Ottoman author portraits in the early-modern period / Emine Fetvaci -- In defense and devotion : affective practices in early modern Turco-Persian manuscript paintings / Christiane Gruber -- Sentiment in silks : Safavid figural textiles in Mughal courtly culture / Sylvia Houghteling -- The city built, the city rendered : locating urban subjectivity in eighteenth-century Mughal Delhi / Chanchal Dadlani / Faiz Dihlavi's female-centered poems and the representation of public life in late Mughal society / Sunil Sharma -- Mevlevi Sufis and the representation of emotion in the arts of the Ottoman world / Jamal J. Elias.
Affect, Emotion and Subjectivity in Early Modern Muslim Empires presents new approaches to Ottoman Safavid and Mughal art and culture. Taking artistic agency as a starting point, the authors consider the rise in status of architects, the self-fashioning of artists, the development of public spaces, as well as new literary genres that focus on the individual subject and his or her place in the world. They consider the issue of affect as performative and responsive to certain emotions and actions, thus allowing insights into the motivations behind the making and, in some cases, the destruction of works of art. The interconnected histories of Iran, Turkey and India thus highlight the urban and intellectual changes that defined the early modern period.

An introduction to Pontormo : "a great but neglected painter and draftsman of the first part of the 16th century"
Jones, Jonah (Arts project manager), author
Firenze : Mauro Pagliai Editore : 
The author?s main purpose is to re-evaluate and recognize the contribution of Jacopo Pontormo within the history of art and, more specifically, Italian Renaissance. While the first sections provide the context of his personal life and career as the pre-eminent painter in mid-sixteenth century Florence, further chapters trace Pontormo?s stylistic development from High Renaissance classicism through his anti-classical explorations. An introduction to Pontormo also provides a series of brief biographies of Pontormo?s 20 key paintings which support this development.

The Pont-Aven school : cradle of the modern sensibility
Milan, Italy : 5 Continents, 
Paul Gauguin, Émile Bernard: a meeting of minds in Pont-Aven / Jean-Marie Rouart -- A collection of talismans: exploring the works collected by Alexandre Mouradian / Adrien Goetz -- Catalogue / Estelle Guille des Buttes.
Pont-Aven has lent its name to one of the most famous schools of painting in modern art and is now automatically associated with Paul Gauguin and Émile Bernard. In 1888, in this Breton village in southern Finistère, the two painters set about inventing the features of a completely new style of painting: Synthetism. Breaking with academic orthodoxy and heavily influenced by Japanese prints, they introduced novel aesthetic principles distinguished especially by a belief in simple forms and the use of colour applied in large patches edged by a dark line. This approach further distanced itself from the art that preceded it in its taste for matt tones and the rejection of traditional perspective.0This new book reveals to a wider public the important collection that Alexandre Mouradian amassed in only a few years.

Representing Duchess Anna Amalia's Bildung : a visual metamorphosis in portraiture from political to personal in eighteenth-century Germany
Lindeman, Christina K., author
London : Routledge, 2017
The cultural milieu in the "Age of Goethe" of eighteenth-century Germany is given fresh context in this art historical study of the noted writers' patroness: Anna Amalia, Duchess of Weimar-Sachsen-Eisenach. An important noblewoman and patron of the arts, Anna Amalia transformed her court into one of the most intellectually and culturally brilliant in Europe; this book reveals the full scope of her impact on the history of art of this time and place. More than just biography or a patronage study, this book closely examines the art produced by German-speaking artists and the figure of Anna Amalia herself. Her portraits demonstrate the importance of social networks that enabled her to construct scholarly, intellectual identities not only for herself, but for the region she represented. By investigating ways in which the duchess navigated within male-dominated institutions as a means of advancing her own self-cultivation - or Bildung - this book demonstrates the role accorded to women in the public sphere, cultural politics, and historical memory. Cumulatively, Christina Lindeman traces how Anna Amalia, a woman from a small German principality, was represented as an active participant in enlightened discourses. The author presents a novel and original argument concerned with how a powerful woman used art to shape her identity, how that identity changed over time, and how people around her shaped it - an approach that elucidates the power of portraiture in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe.

Architecture and the mimetic self : a psychoanalytic study of how buildings make and break our lives
Huskinson, Lucy, 1976- author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Buildings shape our identity and sense of self in profound ways that are not always evident to architects and town planners, or even to those who think they are intimately familiar with the buildings they inhabit. Architecture and the Mimetic Self provides a useful theoretical guide to our unconscious behaviour in relation to buildings, and explains both how and why we are drawn to specific elements and features of architectural design. It reveals how even the most uninspiring of buildings can be modified to meet our unconscious expectations and requirements of them--and, by the same token, it explores the repercussions for our wellbeing when buildings fail to do so--back cover.

Why architects matter : evidencing and communicating the value of architects
Samuel, Flora, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
The Undervaluing of Architectural Knowledge. Public Image, Misinformation and the Bogey of Dispensability -- The Profession -- Cracks in the Professional Foundations: The Right Body of Knowledge -- The Research Culture of Architects -- The Value Agenda -- The Value of Architects. So What is an Architect? -- The Value of Social Architects -- The Value of Cultural Architects -- The Value of Knowledge Architects -- Making the Most of Architects. Education for Uncertainty -- Developing a Shared Language of Research -- Models of Academic and Practice Research Collaboration -- Incentivising Research in Practice -- Risk and Research Strategy -- Managing Knowledge in Practice.
Why Architects Matter examines the key role of research- led, ethical architects in promoting wellbeing, sustainability and innovation. It argues that the profession needs to be clear about what it knows and the value of what it knows if it is to work successfully with others. Without this clarity, the marginalization of architects from the production of the built environment will continue, preventing clients, businesses and society from getting the buildings that they need. The book offers a strategy for the development of a twenty-first-century knowledge-led built environment, including tools to help evidence, develop and communicate that value to those outside the field. Knowing how to demonstrate the impact and value of their work will strengthen practitioners' ability to pitch for work and access new funding streams. This is particularly important at a time of global economic downturn, with ever greater competition for contracts and funds driving down fees and making it imperative to prove value at every level. Why Architects Matter straddles the spheres of ̀Practice Management and Law', 'History and Theory', 'Design', 'Housing', 'Sustainability', 'Health', 'Marketing' and 'Advice for Clients', bringing them into an accessible whole. The book will therefore be of interest to professional architects, architecture students and anyone with an interest in our built environment and the role of professionals within it.

Roughly falling into three genres (retrospectives of living artists, retrospectives of recently deceased artists, and monographic exhibitions of Old Masters), specialists examine examples of each genre within their social, cultural, political, and economic contexts. Exhbitions covered include Nathaniel Hone's 1775 exhibition, Paul Delaroche's exhibition, the Courbet retrospective of 1882 and the Holbein Exhibition of 1871.

Ricerche su Giovanni Baglione : l'iconografia, i ritratti, i dipinti mobili fino al 1600 e il rapporto con il "naturale"
Vannugli, Antonio, 1959- author
Roma : Gangemi editore SpA international, 
Questo libro prende le mosse dall'individuazione di un nuovo Autoritratto che Giovanni Baglione (Roma 1566 - 1643) dipinse in gioventù e si sviluppa passando in rassegna gli autoritratti e i ritratti attualmente conosciuti dell'artista, per ampliare quindi il discorso sulla sua intera produzione ritrattistica. Attraverso tale indagine, è apparso come non mai evidente che l'incontro-scontro con il Caravaggio ebbe a livello stilistico effetti ancor meno rilevanti di quanto - non di rado per inconfessabili ragioni di mercato - si è oggi generalmente disposti ad ammettere. Essi furono invece non solo marginali e transeunti, ma soprattutto svincolati dal percorso personale di Baglione verso una più fedele restituzione del colore naturale: percorso lungo il quale egli si era incamminato già prima del 1600 e che si svolse in realtà su una linea del tutto indipendente dai fondamenti del naturalismo caravaggesco. A tal fine ne viene ripercorsa la carriera fino al volgere del secolo e in special modo la scarna produzione giovanile da cavalletto pervenutaci, soffermandosi sull'Apparizione dell'angelo a san Giuseppe di Mosca come anche, varcata la soglia del Seicento, sulle due serie di Muse e sui diversi quadri con San Giovanni Battista. Infine, la prassi del Baglione pittore viene posta a confronto con il pensiero del Baglione scrittore, che si è tentato di definire con maggior precisione attraverso una sistematica analisi lessicale delle ricorrenze del termine "naturale" nelle Vite del 1642.

La cattedrale e la città : il cantiere del Duomo di Siena tra XI e XIV secolo
Causarano, Marie-Ange, author
Sesto Fiorentino (Firenze) : All'insegna del giglio, 
Il volume documenta l?origine e l?evoluzione della cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta a Siena tra la fine del X-inizi dell?XI secolo e il XIV secolo. Partendo da un?analisi di tipo archeologico dell?edilizia storica, le vicende costruttive dell?edificio sono inquadrate all?interno dell?evoluzione del colle del Duomo e del contesto urbano di riferimento, con l?obiettivo di ricostruire i processi storici che ne hanno determinato la formazione, individuare gli scambi tra il cantiere, l?ambiente urbano e il territorio limitrofo, principale bacino di approvvigionamento di maestranze, manodopera e materiali. Nella prima parte del testo si descrivono gli ampliamenti e le trasformazioni della cattedrale, suddivisi in base ai grandi progetti costruttivi che ne segnano l?evoluzione: dalla chiesa a terminazione absidale della fine del X-inizi dell?XI secolo, all?ecclesia maior a croce latina della seconda metà del XII secolo, completamente rinnovata a partire dagli anni ?60 del XIII secolo, fino ai grandi progetti di ampliamento del XIV secolo. Nella seconda parte si analizzano gli ?indicatori? che caratterizzano il monumento e lo collegano alla città (i materiali, l?organizzazione delle maestranze e gli strumenti da loro impiegati, le tecniche costruttive), contestualizzando i numerosi cantieri che si sono succeduti nella costruzione della cattedrale in un più vasto quadro socio-economico.

Almost eternal : painting on stone and material innovation in early modern Europe
edited by Piers Baker-Bates, Elena Calvillo
Leiden ; Brill, 
Almost Eternal: Painting on Stone and Material Innovation in Early Modern Europe' gathers together an international group of ten scholars, who offer a novel account of the phenomenon of oil painting on stone surfaces in Northern and Southern Europe. This technique was devised in Rome by Sebastiano del Piombo in the early sixteenth century and was practiced until the late seventeenth century. This phenomenon has attracted little attention previously: the volume therefore makes a significant and timely contribution to the field in the light of recent studies of materiality and the rise of technical Art History.

For Fernando Francés, Francisco Leiro "is undoubtedly one of the finest examples of how art can be synonymous with a commitment to life experience and autobiographical thought. Today's society has adopted a passive, indifferent and egotistical position towards the misfortunes and miseries that occur across the globe. Leiro adopts a committed stance. He immerses himself in the reality of massacres, injustices, murders and rampant violence and imprints them on his sculptures where, whether we like it or not, we come face to face with the crude reality, with piles of dead people, innocent people who are beaten, workers who sweep away human remains from the ground or clean up after a disaster caused by humanity."

Splendor and misery in the Weimar Republic
edited by Ingrid Pfeiffer ; translation: Jane Michael
Frankfurt : Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt ; 
"From the glamour of the Golden Twenties to the depths of the dark side of a world undergoing rapid change - the penetrating content of works by more than 60 artists recreates the age of the Weimar Republic, big - city life and the entertainment scene as well as the consequences of the First World War and socially controversial topics such as prostitution, political struggle and social tensions. As the first German democracy, the Weimar Republic (1918 - 1933) is regarded as a time of crisis and transition - from the German Empire to the totalitarian regime of National Socialism. Numerous artists not only portrayed these years in their realistic representations, which are ironical and grotesque as well as critical - analytical; they also aimed to comment on the stat us quo and bring about social change. Works from Otto Dix and George Grosz via Conrad Felixmuller and Christian Schad to Dodo, Jeanne Mammen, Elfriede Lohse - Wachtler, famous artists and others waiting to be rediscovered, paint a multi - layered and political picture of the Weimar Republic."

To laugh that we may not weep : the life & times of Art Young
edited by Glenn Bray & Frank M. Young ; introduction by Art Spiegelman
Seattle : Fantagraphics Books, 2017
"Art Young was one of the most renowned and incendiary political cartoonists in the first half of the 20th century. And far more--an illustrator for magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and Colliers, a magazine publisher, a New York State Senatorial candidate on the Socialist ticket, and perhaps the only cartoonist to be tried under the Espionage Act for sedition. He made his reputation appearing in The Masses on a regular basis using lyrical, vibrant graphics and a deep appreciation of mankind's inherent folly to create powerful political cartoons. To Laugh That We May Not Weep is a sweeping career retrospective, reprinting--often for the first time in 60 or 70 years--over 800 of Young's timeless, charming, and devastating cartoons and illustrations, many reproduced from original artwork, to create a fresh new portrait of this towering figure in the worlds of cartooning and politics. With essays by Art Spiegelman, Justin Green, Art Young biographer Marc Moorash, Anthony Mourek, and Glenn Bray, with a biographical overview of Young's life and work by Frank M. Young, To Laugh That We May Weep is a long-awaited tribute to one of the great lost cartoonists whose work is as relevant in the 21st century as it was in its own time."--Amazon.com.

Caravaggio : catalogo ragionato delle opere autografe, attribuite e controverse : con un regesto completo delle repliche e delle copie
Scaletti, Fabio, author
[Naples] : Artstudiopaparo, 
Result of years of work, this Catalogue Raisonné brings together the entire work of one of the greatest names of universal art, certainly the most revolutionary painter and now amato: Michelangelo Merisi called Caravaggio. In two specific sections are examined one by one and filed by historical-critical point, documentary and scientific paintings recognized original ones and those of dubious autograph, debated and however not yet known and shared, reporting and classifying the opinions of almost all Italian and foreign scholars, past and present. The attention is focused on the most important and significant cases but also older attributions or marginal and gives you room to those who filled the Chronicles of our times, not forgetting the issue of possible replicas and by surveying the ancient copies extant.

The challenge of the sublime : from Burke's philosophical enquiry to British Romantic art
Pharabod-Ibata, Hélène, author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2018
This book examines the links between the unprecedented visual inventiveness of the Romantic period in Britain and eighteenth-century theories of the sublime. Edmund Burke's 'Philosophical enquiry into the origin of our ideas of the sublime and beautiful' (1757), in particular, is shown to have directly or indirectly challenged visual artists to explore not just new themes, but also new compositional strategies and visual media such as panoramas and book illustrations, by arguing that the sublime was beyond the reach of painting. More significantly, it began to call into question mimetic representational models, causing artists to reflect about the presentation of the unpresentable and drawing attention to the process of artistic production itself, rather than the finished artwork.

The title 'The Ends of Collage', refers both literally and metaphorically to the place where collage fulfils its calling -- at the ends or edges of pictures and fragments, where separate worlds come together or break apart from one another. But it also suggests an historical paradigm, where collage is considered as a medium that existed in the so called "age of mechanical reproduction" and has now been overcome by the new logic of the digital age. The book attempts to survey different approaches to- and definitions of collage and the role of this medium in two crucial historical moments: its emergence in the early decades of the 20th century, and the introduction of digital media during the postmodern moment of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Gauguin's challenge : new perspectives after postmodernism
edited by Norma Broude
New York : Bloomsbury Visual Arts, 2018
Several decades have now passed since postcolonial and feminist critiques presented the art-historical world with a demythologized Paul Gauguin (1848-1903), a much-diminished image of the artist/hero who had once been universally admired as "the father of modernist primitivism." In this volume, both long-established and more recent Gauguin scholars offer a provocative picture of the evolution of Gauguin scholarship in the recent postmodern era, as they confront and consider how the dismantling of the longstanding Gauguin myth positions us now in the 21st century to deal with and assess the life, work, and legacy of this still perennially popular artist. To reassess the challenges that Gauguin faced in his own day as well as those that he continues to present to current and future scholarship, they explore the multiple contexts that influenced Gauguin's thought and behavior as well as his art and incorporate a variety of interdisciplinary approaches, from anthropology, philosophy, and the history of science to gender studies and the study of Pacific cultural history. Dealing with a wide range of Gauguin's production, they challenge conventional art-historical thinking, highlight transnational perspectives, and offer clues to the direction of future scholarship, as audiences worldwide seek to make multicultural peace with Gauguin and his art. Broude has raised the bar of Gauguin scholarship ever higher in this groundbreaking volume, which will be necessary reading for students and scholars of art history, late 19th-century French and Pacific culture, gender studies, and beyond.

Jacopo Bassano : "vivezza e grazia di colore" : l'Adorazione dei Magi e i suoi multipli
Donati, Andrea, author
Roma : Etgraphiae, 
Il libro ripercorre l'inizio della fortuna critica di Jacopo Bassano, affrontando la questione del "non finito", dei "multipli", del rapporto con El Greco in Italia e alcuni aspetti del collezionismo. Partendo dall'analisi dell'Adorazione dei magi, che è uno dei soggetti più frequenti nel repertorio di Jacopo, si può constatare quanto sia importante il tema evangelico della nascita del Salvatore. La pittura di Jacopo è consacrata quasi esclusivamente al genere biblico e pastorale, ma il tema dell'Avvento, sotto forma di adorazione o annuncio, riveste per lui un interesse speciale. La sua pittura rappresenta la grandezza e l'originalità dell'arte veneziana vista dalla singolare angolazione del dominio di Terraferma. Benché Jacopo appartenga alla provincia, va considerato di fatto uno dei campioni della pittura veneziana del Cinquecento. La sua opera è una felice unione di natura e sentimento.

"The rise and fall of New York--a radical architect's view of the destruction of the city Michael Sorkin is one of the most forthright and engaging architectural writers in the world. In What Goes Up he charts the dehumanising regimes of mayors Bloomberg and De Blasio that created a city of glittering towers and increasing inequality. He looks at what has happened to Ground Zero, as a place of memory has been reconstructed by "staritects" and turned into malls. The city, he suggests, has to be reimagined from the street up on a human scale, to develop new ways to revitalise neighbourhoods Alongside these essays on New York, Sorkin also brings his lifetime's experience as an architect to bear. He talks of the joy of observing a city in order to understand it. Why a young designer must learn to draw by hand rather than only use a computer. There are also personal encounters with some of the greatest names who have changed the city. Sorkin gets lost in Rio with Zaha Hadid; talks about the old Bronx with Marshall Berman; and gets on the wrong side of Daniel Libeskind"--

Architectural science and the sun : the poetics and pragmatics of solar design
Fajkus, Matt, author
New York : Routledge, 2018
Architectural Science and the Sun synthesizes physics, climate, program, and perception to provide a foundation in the principles of architectural science related to the sun: solar geometry, solar analysis and design techniques, passive design principles, and daylighting. Part analytical handbook, part inspiration source for schematic design, the content comprises a critical component of effective sustainable design. Beyond the purely technical aspects of these topics, Architectural Science and the Sun begins with the premise that great architecture goes beyond energy performance and the visual-aesthetic to engage all of the senses. Given that the stimuli to which our senses respond are physical phenomena such as light, heat, and sound, the designer must manipulate these parameters through the craft of building form and technology to create the desired qualitative experience. This book is designed to help the reader develop that skill.

Norman Bel Geddes : American design visionary

London ; Bloomsbury Academic, An imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2018
Norman Bel Geddes has long been considered the 'founder' of American industrial design. During his long career he worked on everything from theatre design, world fairs and cars to houses and product and packaging design.0Nicolas P. Maffei's magisterial biography draws on original material from the archive at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin, and places Bel Geddes' work within the fast-changing cultural and intellectual contexts of his time. Maffei shows how Bel Geddes' futuristic but pragmatic style - his notion of 'practical vision' - was central to his work, and highly influential on the professional practice of American industrial design in general.

Art patronage, family, and gender in Renaissance Florence : the Tornabuoni
DePrano, Maria, 1967- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
This book examines the multi-media art patronage of three generations of the Tornabuoni family, who commissioned works from innovative artists, such as Sandro Botticelli and Rosso Fiorentino. Best known for commissioning the fresco cycle in Santa Maria Novella by Domenico Ghirlandaio, a key monument of the Florentine Renaissance, the Tornabuoni ordered a number of still-surviving art works, inspired by their commitment to family, knowledge of ancient literature, music, love, loss, and religious devotion. This extensive body of work makes the Tornabuoni a critically important family of early modern art patrons. However, they are further distinguished by the numerous objects they commissioned to honor female relations who served in different family roles, thus deepening understanding of Florentine Renaissance gender relations. Maria DePrano presents a comprehensive picture of how one Florentine family commissioned art to gain recognition in their society, revere God, honor family members, especially women, and memorialize deceased loved ones.

Junk type : typography - lettering - badges - logos
Rose, Bill (Photographer), author
New York, NY : Universe Publishing, a division of Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., 
Foreword / Bill Rose -- Introduction / Mike Essl.
Junk Type is a project driven by the passion of one man to document a disappearing aspect of American culture. Bill Rose--aka Recapturist--is a photographer and designer who has spent the last decade traveling across America looking for junkyards, yard sales, antique stores, and other unlikely sources of inspiration to capture examples of postwar American typography and design before they're lost forever. Bringing together more than 400 images, this invaluable book is a visual history of postwar America, told through the distinct typography, icons, badges, and branding of the country's industrial heritage. From Art Deco inspired fonts and unique handmade cursive lettering to illustrated insignia and clean graphic logos bearing the influence of European design of the 1960s, these pictures together represent an encyclopedic reference of creative typefaces and graphics. With each photograph representing just a detail--an embossed logo, a specially created icon, or an advertising slogan this book captures the optimism and pragmatism of a golden age of American industrial creativity and distills it into a charming resource for anyone with an eye (or nostalgia) for vintage design.

Drawing as a way of knowing in art and science
Anderson, Gemma, author
Bristol, UK ; Intellect, 
In recent history, the arts and sciences have often been considered opposing fields of study, but a growing trend in drawing research is beginning to bridge this divide. Gemma Anderson's Drawing as a Way of Knowing in Art and Science introduces tested ways in which drawing as a research practice can enhance morphological insight, specifically within the natural sciences, mathematics, and art. Inspired and informed by collaboration with contemporary scientists and Goethe's studies of morphology, as well as the work of artist Paul Klee, this book presents drawing as a means of developing and disseminating knowledge, and of understanding and engaging with the diversity of natural and theoretical forms, such as animal, vegetable, mineral, and four dimensional shapes. Anderson shows that drawing can offer a means of scientific discovery and can be integral to the creation of new knowledge in science as well as in the arts.--Google Books.

Dark side of the boom : the excesses of the art market in the twenty-first century

Introduction -- Prologue: Le Freeport, Luxembourg -- Sustaining the big bucks market : Supply ; Demand: China wakes -- A fortune on your wall? : What's the price? ; The problems with authentication ; A tsunami of forgery -- Money, money, money : Investment ; Speculation ; The dark side -- Postscript -- Appendix.
"This book scrutinizes the excesses and extravagances that the 21st-century explosion of the contemporary art market brought in its wake. The buying of art as an investment, temptations to forgery and fraud, tax evasion, money laundering and pressure to produce more and more art all form part of this story, as do the upheavals in auction houses and the impact of the enhanced use of financial instruments on art transactions. Drawing on a series of tenaciously wrought interviews with artists, collectors, lawyers, bankers and convicted artist forgers, the author charts the voracious commodification of artists and art objects, and art's position in the clandestine puzzle of the highest echelons of global capital. Adam's revelations appear even more timely in the wake of the Panama Papers revelations, for example incorporating examples of the way tax havens have been used to stash art transactions - and ownership - away from public scrutiny. With the same captivating style of her bestselling Big Bucks: The Explosion of the Art Market in the 21st Century, Georgina Adam casts her judicious glance over a section of the art market whose controversies and intrigues will be of eye-opening interest to both art-world players and observers."--Amazon.com.

A selection of sixteen texts, textos, 1970-1979 -- Two books, Libro No. 1, 1972, sin Titulo (Libro), 1971 -- List of works -- About Mirtha Dermisache.
Argentinian artist Mirtha Dermisache (1940-2012) wrote dozens of books, hundreds of letters and postcards, and countless texts. Not a single one was legible, yet, in their promixity to language, they all resonate with a mysterious potential for meaning. Using ink on paper, Dermisache invented an array of graphic languages, each with their own unique lexical and syntactic structures. Some resemble a child's scrawl; others feel like nets or knots or transcriptions of seismic waves. Praised by Roland Barthes in the early '70s for the 'extreme intelligence of the theoretical problems related to writing that [her] work entails', Dermisache's graphisms suggest both an abstract 'essence of writing' and a concrete democratization of written forms. 'Selected Writings', the first collection of Dermisache's works to be published in the US, collects two complete books and a selection of texts from the early 1970s, a rich and prolific period for the artist.

John Constable : the Leaping Horse
Humphreys, Richard, 1953- author
London : Royal Academy of Arts, 
Each year between 1819 and 1825, John Constable (1776-1837) submitted a monumental canvas to the Royal Academy of Arts in London for display in the annual Exhibition. These so-called six-footers vividly captured the life of the River Stour in Suffolk, where Constable grew up and where he returned to paint each year. 'The Leaping Horse', the last of these, now a major work in the Academy's collection, is the subject of this fascinating new book. Humphreys explores Constable's often avant-garde working methods, as well as his struggle to gain full acceptance within the art establishment of the early nineteenth century. With reproductions of his full-scale preliminary sketches as well as brand new photography of the painting itself, this book is the ideal companion for art lovers who seek a deeper appreciation of Constable's iconic depictions of the English countryside.

Modern playhouses : an architectural history of Britain's new theatres, 1945-1985
Fair, Alistair, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2018
Modern Playhouses' is the first detailed study of the major programme of theatre-building which took place in Britain between the 1950s and the 1980s. Drawing on a vast range of archival material - much of which had never previously been studied by historians - it sets architecture in a wide social and cultural context, presenting the history of post-war theatre buildings as a history of ideas relating not only to performance but also to culture, citizenship, and the modern city. During this period, more than sixty major new theatres were constructed in locations from Plymouth to Inverness, Aberystwyth to Ipswich. The most prominent example was the National Theatre in London, but the National was only the tip of the iceberg. Supported in many cases by public subsidies, these buildings represented a new kind of theatre, conceived as a public service. Theatre was ascribed a transformative role, serving as a form of 'productive' recreation at a time of increasing affluence and leisure. New theatres also contributed to debates about civic pride, urbanity, and community. Ultimately, theatre could be understood as a vehicle for the creation of modern citizens in a consciously modernizing Britain. Through their planning and appearance, new buildings were thought to connote new ideas of theatre's purpose. In parallel, new approaches to staging and writing posed new demands of the auditorium and stage. Yet while recognizing, as contemporaries did, that the new theatres of the post war decades represented change, 'Modern Playhouses' also asks how radically different these buildings really were, and what their 'mainstream' architecture reveals of the history of modern British architecture, and of post-war Britain.

Art and authority : moral rights and meaning in contemporary visual art
Gover, K. E., author
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2018
People engage with authored works all the time. They buy paintings, read books, and download songs. They might even be artists themselves. And yet they tend to take the concept of authorship for granted. The basic idea that an artist as author maintains some kind of claim to his creation, even as it circulates in the world at large, seems natural. It is the basis for copyright law and moral rights legislation which protect the rights of authors. But what is an author, and why do artists receive special legal recognition and protection that the creators of other kinds of artifacts do not? It is often assumed that artists have a special bond with their artworks, but the nature of this bond, and its function as the source of an artist's authority over his work, often goes unquestioned. 0Art and Authority is a philosophical essay on artistic freedom: its sources, nature, and limits. Artistic freedom can mean different things depending on the context in which it is invoked. K.E. Gover argues that the most fundamental form of artistic freedom involves the artist's authority to accept or disavow the works she produces, to curate the works that bear her name and come to represent her artistic oeuvre. Our very concept of what an artwork is-the intentional expression of the artist, for its own sake-depends on this second-order endorsement by the artist of what he or she has made. Using real-world cases and controversies in contemporary visual art, Gover argues that the leading accounts of artistic authorship in the legal and philosophical literature have overlooked the significance of this moment.

"Pablo Picasso had already accepted a commission in 1937 to create a work for the Spanish Republican Pavilion at the Paris World Fair when news arrived of the assault by the German Condor Legion on the undefended Basque town of Guernica, in which hundreds of civilians died. James Attlee offers an illuminating account of the genesis, creation and many-stranded afterlife of Picasso's Guernica. He explores the historical context from which it sprang; the artistic influences that informed its execution; the critical responses that it elicited; its journeyings across Europe and America in the late 1930s; its post-war adoption by new generations of anti-war protestors; and its eventual return to Spain following the death of Franco."--Publisher's description.

Artistic visions of the Anthropocene North : climate change and nature in art
edited by Gry Herdin and Ann-Sofie N. Gremaud
New York : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
In the era of the Anthropocene, artists and scientists are facing a new paradigm in their attempts to represent nature. Seven essays, which focus on art from 1780 to the present that engages with Nordic landscapes, argue that a number of artists in this period work in the intersection between art, science, and media technologies to examine the human impact on these landscapes and question the human-nature dichotomy. Canadian artists such as Lawren Harris and Geronimo Inutiq are considered alongside artists from Scandinavia and Iceland such as J.C. Dahl, Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Toril Johannessen, and Bjoerk.

Raymond Jonson and the spiritual in modernist and abstract painting
Hartel, Herbert R., Jr., author
New York ; Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 
This is the most thorough and detailed monograph on the artwork of Raymond Jonson ever published. He is one of many artists of the first half of the twentieth century who demonstrates the richness and diversity of an under-appreciated period in the history of American art. Visualizing the spiritual was one of the fundamental goals of early abstract painting in the years before and during World War I. Artists turned to alternative spirituality, the occult, and mysticism, believing that the pure use of line, shape, color, light, and texture could convey spiritual insights. Jonson was steadfastly dedicated to this goal for most of his career, and he always believed that modernist and abstract styles were the most effective and compelling means of achieving it.

Cartographic abstraction in contemporary art : seeing with maps
Reddleman, Claire, author
New York, NY : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
List of figures -- Acknowledgments -- Introduction: from critical cartography to cartographic abstraction: rethinking the production of cartographic viewing through contemporary artworks -- Reconfiguring the view from nowhere: collage and complicity in Targets by Joyce Kozloff -- The drone's eye view: networked vision and visibility in works by James Bridle and Trevor Paglen -- Remove viewing, cartographic abstraction and the antipodes: three works by Layla Curtis -- Signification in the soundscape: Bill Fontana's River Sounding -- Cartographic abstraction: a material modality of thought and experience -- References -- Index.
In this book, Claire Reddleman introduces her theoretical innovation 'cartographic abstraction' ? a material modality of thought and experience that is produced through cartographic techniques of depiction. Reddleman closely engages with selected artworks (by contemporary artists such as Joyce Kozloff, Layla Curtis, and Bill Fontana) and theories in each chapter. Reconfiguring the Foucauldian underpinning of critical cartography towards a materialist theory of abstraction, cartographic viewpoints are theorised as concrete abstractions. This research is positioned at the intersection of art theory, critical cartography and materialist philosophy.

The idea of the Gothic cathedral : interdisciplinary perspectives on the meanings of the medieval edifice in the modern period
edited by Stephanie A. Glaser
Turnhout, Belgium : Brepols, 
The essays in this book focus on various social, political, cultural, and aesthetic meanings ascribed to Gothic cathedrals in Europe in the post-medieval period. Central to many medieval ritual traditions both sacred and secular, the Gothic cathedral holds a privileged place within the European cultural imagination and experience. Due to the burgeoning historical interest in the medieval past, in connection with the medieval revival in literature, visual arts, and architecture that began in the late seventeenth century and culminated in the nineteenth, the Gothic cathedral took centre stage in numerous ideological discourses. These discourses imposed contemporary political and aesthetic connotations upon the cathedral that were often far removed from its original meaning and ritual use. This volume presents interdisciplinary perspectives on the resignification of the Gothic cathedral in the post-medieval period. Its contributors, literary scholars and historians of art and architecture, investigate the dynamics of national and cultural movements that turned Gothic cathedrals into symbols of the modern nation-state, highlight the political uses of the edifice in literature and the arts, and underscore the importance of subjectivity in literary and visual representations of Gothic architecture. Contributing to scholarship in historiography, cultural history, intermedial and interdisciplinary studies, as well as traditional disciplines, the volume resonates with wider perspectives, especially relating to the reuse of artefacts to serve particular ideological ends.

Japan now : three displays at the Gardiner Museum celebrating contemporary Japanese ceramics
Mirviss, Joan B, author,
Toronto : Gardiner Museum, 
"A collection of contemporary Japanese ceramics will be in Toronto on loan from the Joan Mirviss Gallery, NYC. This booklet will accompany three displays of Japanese Ceramics at the Gardiner Museum from January 2018-December 2018. For the first, the focus is on form and function, featuring vessels created with the intention of use for floral display or referring, sometimes loosely, to that function. This is followed by a selection of works that exemplify the incredible range of approaches to surface. The final show explores the extraordinary work done by pioneering women artists who have been at the vanguard for the past twenty years."--

Luc Tuymans : catalogue raisonné of paintings
Tuymans, Luc, 1958- artist
New York, New York : David Zwirner Books, -
Volume 1. 1972-1994 --
Credited with a key role in the revival of painting in the 1990s, Belgian artist Luc Tuymans (b. 1958) continues to produce subtle, and at times unsettling, works that engage with history, technology, and everyday life. This first volume in a catalogue raisonne of Tuymans's paintings surveys nearly 200 works that were vital to his artistic development. The years 1978 to 1994 witnessed the maturation of his signature method of painting from preexisting imagery-such as magazine images, Polaroids, and television footage-as well as his first solo exhibition. Also dating from this period are many of his seminal canvases, along with ten poignant portraits of the ailing human body and the enigmatic series Superstition that comprised his first works exhibited in the United States. The catalogue features an introductory essay by Eva Meyer-Hermann and an illustrated chronology with archival images and installation shots of the works in this volume. It also includes brilliant new photography of each of the paintings. This publication is a testament to Tuymans's persistent assertion of the relevance and importance of painting-a conviction that he maintains even in today's digital world, when his work continues to be a touchstone for artists and scholars.

Lusingare la vista : il colore e la magnificenza a Roma tra tardo Rinascimento e Barocco
a cura di Adriano Amendola
Città del Vaticano : Edizioni Musei Vaticani, 
Secondo volume della collana Dentro il Palazzo, dedicato alle arti, agli arredi, al collezionismo nei palazzi romani tra il tardo Rinascimento e il Barocco. Le prestigiose opere realizzate a Roma in ambito pubblico e privato tra la fine del XVII secolo e l'inizio del XVIII, vengono analizzate seguendo come filo conduttore l'evoluzione del gusto e approfondendo i caratteri distintivi dell'epoca: il colore e la magnificenza. La prima sezione è dedicata ai codici dell'ornamento e al lusso concepito come finzione; la seconda affronta alcune manifestazioni dell'immaginario barocco nella scultura e nell'architettura; la terza sezione racconta le abitudini e le tradizioni della vita di corte. Seguono schede di approfondimento che affrontano casi specifici ed emblematici del gusto barocco. A corredo del volume, un vastissimo apparato fotografico con riproduzioni di quadri, sculture, vedute di sale e gallerie di prestigiosi palazzi, mobilia e suppellettili, interni di chiese e basiliche, esempi di architettura rinascimentale e barocca, incisioni e disegni.
