"The turn of the twentieth century witnessed a surge in the creation and popularity of nocturnes and night landscapes in American art. In this original and thought-provoking book, Hélène Valance investigates why artists and viewers of the era were so captivated by the night. Nocturne examines works by artists such as James McNeill Whistler, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Frederic Remington, Edward Steichen, and Henry Ossawa Tanner through the lens of the scientific developments and social issues that dominated the period. Valance argues that the success of the genre is connected to the resonance between the night and the many forces that affected the era, including technological advances that expanded the realm of the visible, such as electric lighting and photography; Jim Crow-era race relations; America's closing frontier and imperialism abroad; and growing anxiety about identity and social values amid rapid urbanization. This absorbing study features 150 illustrations encompassing paintings, photographs, prints, scientific illustration, advertising, and popular media to explore the predilection for night imagery as a sign of the times."--Book jacket

The Pre-Raphaelites and science
Holmes, John, 1973-
New Haven : Yale University Press, 
Introduction: the Pre-Raphaelites and Victorian science -- Part 1. The Pre-Raphaelite project: scientific art for a scientific age, 1848 to 1860 -- The search after truth: art on the model of science -- To know what has grown: the ecological vision of Pre-Raphaelite art -- The knowing hand of the anatomist: embodied psychology in Pre-Raphaelite painting and poetry -- Looking the matter through and through: sacred art on scientific principles -- An experiment in architecture: Pre-Raphaelitism and science at the Oxford Museum -- Part 2. Shaping a scientific culture: the Pre-Raphaelite arts and Victorian science after 1860 -- Fault lines: Pre-Raphaelitism and science after 1859 -- The facts of the case: scientific naturalism and Pre-Raphaelite poetry -- Pre-Raphaelite architecture and scientific controversy after Darwin: the natural history museum versus nature -- Retrospect: Pre-Raphaelite painting and the history of science -- Conclusion: the Pre-Raphalites and science today.
This revelatory book traces how the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and their close associates put scientific principles into practice across their painting, poetry, sculpture, and architecture. In their manifesto, The Germ, the Pre-Raphaelites committed themselves to creating a new kind of art modeled on science, in which precise observation could lead to new discoveries about nature and humanity. In Oxford and London, Victorian scientists and Pre-Raphaelite artists worked together to design and decorate natural history museums as temples to God's creation. At the same time, journals like Nature and the Fortnightly Review combined natural science with Pre-Raphaelite art theory and poetry to find meaning and coherence within a worldview turned upside down by Darwin's theory of evolution. Offering reinterpretations of well-known works by John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, and William Morris, this major revaluation of the popular Victorian movement also considers less-familiar artists who were no less central to the Pre-Raphaelite project. These include William Michael Rossetti, Walter Deverell, James Collinson, John and Rosa Brett, John Lucas Tupper, and the O'Shea brothers, along with the architects Benjamin Woodward and Alfred Waterhouse. Published in association with the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.

Sorolla and fashion
curator, Eloy Martinez de la Pera ; edition, Erica Witschey ; texts Marie-Sophie Carron de la Carrière, Lorena Delgado, Eloy Martinez de la Pera ; translation Jenny Dodman, Paul Hammond
Madrid : Fundación Colección Thyssen-Bornemisza, 
The 'Sorolla and Fashion' exhibition, organized in collaboration between the Museo Sorolla and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza focused on the influence of fashion in the work of Joaquín Sorolla. Curated by Eloy Martínez de la Pera, presents paintings loaned from museums and private collections in Spain and abroad, together with a selection of clothing and accessories of the period. Extremely interested in fashion, Sorolla was the perfect chronicler of the changes that took place in trends and styles in clothing in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His works offer an evocative catalogue of dresses, jewels and accessories, all emphasized by his loose, dynamic brushstroke. The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue places particular emphasis on the magnificent female portraits that the artist executed between 1890 and 1920. Exhibition: Museo Nacional Thyssen - Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain (13.02-27.03.2018).

Animal-shaped vessels from the ancient world : feasting with gods, heroes, and kings
edited by Susanne Ebbinghaus ; with contributions by A. Cassandra Albinson, Angela Chang, Henry P. Colburn, Michael Dietler, Susanne Ebbinghaus, Katherine Eremin, Janling Fu, Robert B. Koehl, Paul Kosmin, Barbara Kowalzig, Ethan W. Lasser, Judith A. Lerner, François Louis, Patrick McGovern, Mary McWilliams, Thomas S. Michie, Elizabeth Molacek, Melissa Moy, Gregory Nagy, Carol Neuman de Vegvar, Kimberley C. Patton, Joanne Pillsbury, Jeffrey Quilter, and Mark Weeden
Cambridge, Mass. : Harvard Art Museums, 
Vessels shaped as bulls, lions, birds, donkeys, and other animals were routinely used to pour and drink liquids at feasts throughout the ancient world. Bringing together animal-shaped vessels from Asia, the Mediterranean, the Near and Far East, and the Americas, this fascinating cross-cultural study is the first large-scale consideration of this phenomenon. Experts from around the world reveal how these entertaining, often extremely lifelike vessels functioned not only as feasting paraphernalia but also as ritual implements, symbols of social status, and objects of artistic exchange and experimentation. Taking up questions ranging from the mechanics of drinking from such unwieldy containers to considerations of what the preference for these shapes says about the nature of human-animal relationships, this books uses a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to offer a unique window onto the experiences of the individuals and communities who raised up these magnificent objects in pleasure and in praise.

Portraiture and critical reflections on being
Altintzoglou, Euripides, 1978- author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
Narcissus' legacy : the origins of the Western portrait and the emergence of dualism -- Rembrandt's dilemma : the introduction of Cartesianism in seventeenth-century Dutch portraiture -- Picasso's solution : the crisis of the honorific and the clash of subjectivities -- The turning of a blind (third) eye : the critique of the honorific in radical forms of contemporary portraiture -- Epilogue : vicious circles.
This book analyzes the philosophical origins of dualism in portraiture in Western culture during the Classical period, through to contemporary modes of portraiture. Dualism - the separation of mind from body - plays a central part in portraiture, given that it supplies the fundamental framework for portraiture's determining problem and justification: the visual construction of the subjectivity of the sitter, which is invariably accounted for as ineffable entity or spirit, that the artist magically captures. Every artist that has engaged with portraiture has had to deal with these issues and, therefore, with the question of being and identity.

Kazimir Malevich : metamorfozy "Chernogo kvadrata"
Kudryavtseva, Ekaterina, 1973-
Moskva: Novoe literaturnoe obozrenie, 2017
This book provides a historical and theoretical framework to the interpretative possibilities generated by Malevich's Black Square. Focusing on the transformations of this work from an easel painting to a Unovis revolutionary icon, and to a signature in Malevich's late paintings, the author argues that from the moment of its conception as the "first" Suprematist painting, the Black Square resisted being read as producing any single meaning. This resulted in the painting's repeated reinterpretation--by the artist himself, by his students, and later by art historians--in an effort to maintain its position of political and aesthetic relevance under shifting historical circumstances. -- Summary supplied by the author.

Victor Lundy : artist architect
Donna Kacmar, editor
Hudson,NY : Princeton Architectural Press, 
Statement of design approach / by Victor Lundy -- Sculpting space / by Donna Kacmar.
If you're looking for something new under the midcentury sun, Victor Lundy (born 1923) is a real find, an important yet underappreciated figure in the history of American architecture. Trained in both the Beaux Arts and Bauhaus traditions, he built an impressive practice ranging from small-scale residential and commercial buildings to expressive religious buildings and two preeminent institutional works: the US Tax Court Building in Washington, DC (now on the National Register of Historic Places), and the US Embassy in Sri Lanka. This first book on Lundy's life and career documents his early work in the Sarasota School of Architecture, his churches, and his government buildings. In addition to essays on his use of light and material, many of the architect's original drawings, paintings, and sketches-including those from his travels throughout Europe, the Middle East, India, and Mexico, now held at the Library of Congress-are reproduced here for the first time.

Painters of the Northwest : Impressionism to Modernism, 1900-1930
Impert, John E., author
Norman : University of Oklahoma Press, 
From its sweeping coastlines to its soaring inland mountains, verdant valleys, and volcanoes standing in splendid isolation, the Pacific Northwest has long inspired artists to capture the unique spirit of its varied landscape. Yet the early years of twentieth-century Pacific Northwest painting remain shrouded in mystery. In this groundbreaking work, John Impert introduces readers to the rich and varied array of artists and works of art that defined the region's artistic transition from a nature-bound impressionism to the arrival of modernism. Focusing on nine artists--Paul Morgan Gustin, C. C. McKim, Clyde Keller, J. Edgar Forkner, Clara Jane Stephens, Dorothy Dolph Jensen, Eustace Paul Ziegler, Mark Tobey, and C. S. Price--art historian John Impert organizes his work around the landscapes, people, and city scenes they painted. He identifies the influence of impressionism, in particular the singular way in which each artist's biography, style, and iconography contribute to a distinctive northwestern sensibility. Painters of the Northwest shows us for the first time how a spectacular natural environment, one that conformed aesthetically to nineteenth-century ideals of romanticism and transcendental reverence, combined with an emphasis on subject over style to create a body of work far more concerned with the natural environment than with the socioeconomic issues that occupied city-bound artists of the day. Establishing a chronology, history, and art historical canon for this little-studied place and time, this book is a long-overdue foundational history of early twentieth-century painting in the Pacific Northwest.--Google Books.

Making dystopia: : the strange rise and survival of architectural barbarism
Curl, James Stevens, 1937- author
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2018
James Stevens Curl tells the story of the advent of architectural modernism in the aftermath of the First World War, its protagonists, and its astonishing, almost global acceptance after 1945. He argues forcefully that the triumph of architectural modernism in the second half of the twentieth century led to massive destruction, the creation of alien urban landscapes, and a huge waste of resources. Moreover, the coming of modernism was not an inevitable, seamless evolution, as many have insisted, but a massive, unparalled disruption that demanded a clean slate and the elimination of all ornament, decoration, and choice.

A companion to ancient Near Eastern art
edited by Ann C Gunter
Hoboken, NJ : John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 
This book covers the aesthetic traditions of Mesopotamia, Iran, Anatolia, and the Levant, from Neolithic times to the end of the Achaemenid Persian Empire around 330 BCE. It describes and examines the field from a variety of critical perspectives: across approaches and interpretive frameworks, key explanatory concepts, materials and selected media and formats, and zones of interaction. This important work also addresses both traditional and emerging categories of material, intellectual perspectives, and research priorities. The book covers geography and chronology, context and setting, medium and scale, while acknowledging the diversity of regional and cultural traditions and the uneven survival of evidence.

Artful design : technology in search of the sublime
Wang, Ge, 1977- author,
Stanford, CA : Standford University Press, 
"What we make, makes us. This is the central tenet of Artful Design, a photorealistic comic book that examines the nature, purpose, and meaning of design. A call to action and a meditation on art, authenticity, and social connection in a world disrupted by technological change, this book articulates a fundamental principle for design: that we should design not just from practical needs but from the values that underlie those needs. Artful Design takes readers on a journey through the aesthetic dimensions of technology. Using music as a universal phenomenon that has evolved alongside technology, this book breaks down concrete case studies in computer-mediated toys, tools, games, and instruments, including the best-selling app Ocarina. Every chapter elaborates a set of general design principles and strategies that illuminate the essential relationship between aesthetics and engineering, art and design. Ge Wang implores us to both embrace and confront technology, not purely as a means to an end, but in its potential to enrich life. Technology is never a neutral agent, but through what we do with it - through what we design with it - it provides a mirror to our human endeavors and values. Artful Design delivers an aesthetic manifesto of technology, accessible yet uncompromising."--Amazon.com.

Tintoretto : artist of renaissance Venice
Echols, Robert, editor
New Haven ; Yale University Press ; 
Considered one of the three greatest painters of sixteenth-century Venice, along with Titian and Veronese, Tintoretto was a bold innovator. His free, expressive brushwork made his work look unfinished to contemporaries but is now recognized as a key step in the development of oil-on-canvas painting. Even today's audiences are astonished by the superhuman scale, painterly dynamism, and visionary qualities of his work. On the 500th anniversary of Tintoretto's birth, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of his career and achievement, with fifteen essays and reproductions of more than 140 paintings--many newly conserved--as well as a selection of his finest drawings. One special contribution is a focus on the artist's portraiture.--Provided by publisher.

Paparoni, Demetrio, author
Milano : Skira Editore, 2018
Ronald Ventura is a contemporary Filipino artist known for his intermingling of hyper-realism, cartoons and graffiti with both historical and Pop subject matter. His work portrays scenes of chaotic disarray, incorporating traditional Western and Asian mythologies with contemporary cultural symbols like Mickey Mouse. Ventura had his first solo exhibitions in 2000, called All Souls Day, which was held at the Drawing Room in Makati City, Philippines, and Innerscapes, held at the West Gallery Megamall in Mandaluyong City. Since then, Ventura has continued to refine his signature style of multilayered paintings, which utilize a broad range of imagery and tend to focus around the human form. In addition to paintings, Ventura also makes sculptures that explore the same themes and aesthetics as his two-dimensional works.

Il giovane Tintoretto
Venezia : Marsilio Editori, 2018
"Questo volume si inserisce a pieno titolo nella cornice delle celebrazioni dedicate al cinquecentenario della nascita di Tintoretto e anzi ne costituisce l'ideale preambolo, offrendo l'occasione per una rilettura complessiva del periodo giovanile del grande artista attraverso il confronto tra capolavori provenienti da ogni parte del mondo. In particolare, mostra e catalogo indagheranno il modo in cui Tintoretto acquisì e trasformò i suoi modelli per sviluppare il suo stile innovativo e altamente personale. Questa ricerca mira a delineare l'originalità del percorso iniziale di Tintoretto, non facilmente riconducibile ad alcuna bottega o personalità determinata, e a definire quali apporti furono determinanti per lo sviluppo della sua arte, attraverso dipinti di Tiziano, Pordenone, Bonifacio de' Pitati, Paris Bordon, Francesco Salviati e Giorgio Vasari, stampe e disegni da Raffaello e Michelangelo e di altri seguaci della loro maniera, nonché sculture di Jacopo Sansovino." --Provided by the publisher

Looking at Tintoretto with John Ruskin : a Venetian anthology
compiled and edited with a critical introduction by Emma Sdegno
Venezia : Marsilio Editori® s.p.a., 2018
For Ruskin, some dates represented turning points in his personal and working life: 23rd September 1845 is one such date. In letters written from Venice to his father that autumn he writes of being overwhelmed by the power of Tintoretto, and of feeling called to safeguard his paintings together with the fate of the city itself. Ruskin's discovery of Tintoretto's work plays a central role in his aesthetics, and was to inspire some of his best writing. Through 'Modern Painters and The Stones of Venice', works that were to be deeply influential throughout mid 19th-century Europe, Ruskin contributed to the establishment of Tintoretto's international fame and his insights still inform our ways of looking at his painting. The collection of writings published here appears for the first time in a well-organised and easily consultable form, a form that Ruskin himself had planned for English visitors. It takes us to paintings in churches throughout the city, though it is the Church and Scuola di San Rocco which stand out as having been the focus of extended and concentrated attention on Ruskin?s part. Neglected by Ruskin scholars, his "Venetian Index", in particular, meticulously records the state of conservation of Tintoretto's canvases at a time of neglect and conflict, while surveying the artist's oeuvre as a whole and minutely examining individual paintings.0Quintessentially Ruskinian in its investigation of the language of sacred iconography and the origins of landscape painting, this guide to Tintoretto's painting generates interpretations which art historians will find stimulating, but will also prove illuminating for non-expert readers wishing to explore a great painter through the sensibility of the critic who first introduced him to the English.

Akroter und Architektur : figüriche Skulptur auf Dächern griechischer Bauten vom 6. bis zum 4. Hahrhundert v. Chr
Reinhardt, Corinna, 1986- author
Boston : De Gruyter, 2018
"Die Ausstattung repräsentativer Tempel- und Schatzhausarchitektur mit Bauskulpturen ist ein Phänomen, das vom 6. bis zum 4. Jahrhundert v. Chr. in Griechenland vielfältig anzutreffen ist. Die Akrotere auf dem Dach waren durch ihre Position besonders auffällig im Erscheinungsbild eines Gebäudes und nahmen damit entscheidenden Einfluss auf seine Wahrnehmung im Kontext des Heiligtums. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht die ästhetische und bildliche Konzeption von figürlichen Akroterbildern sowie ihre Wirkung in engem Zusammenhang zu ihrem architektonischen und historischen Kontext. Im Mittelpunkt steht demnach die Frage danach, was diese Bilder für das Gebäude und seine Auftraggeber leisteten. Gleichzeitig werden als Grundlage für diese Fragen auch die Dächer in den Blick genommen, die etwa Auskunft darüber geben, wie Akrotere befestigt und wie sie genau positioniert wurden. Die verschiedenen Konzepte der Akroterbilder und die Umstände ihrer Verwendung geben Einblick in die Potenziale eines Bildfeldes in der griechischen Architektur, das einerseits für die ästhetische Gestaltung und Charakterisierung des Gebäudes, andererseits auch für die Repräsentation der Auftraggeber einen entscheidenden Beitrag leistete"--

Federico Uribe : watch the parade
Bartholomew F. Bland, edited by
[New York] : Adelson Galleries ; 2017
"The volume explores questions of where Uribe draws his artistic inspiration; the meaning and metaphor behind his selection of materials; and, his views of love, sex, and death. His artwork resists classification. This first comprehensive survey of Uribe's work chronicles his brilliant use of the unexpected (shoes, screws, colored pencils, hangers) he magically turns into birds of the air, creatures of the jungle, and humans, hurt or happy. The book will trace nearly 30 years of his work, from earliest oil paintings, through his significant 1990s embrace of everyday 3-dimenstional objects, to his evolution toward a more pictorial style. Federico Uribe (born in Colombia in 1962) studied art at the University of Los Andes in Bogota and in 1988 moved to New York bringing his global vision that encapsulates his years of work in Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Russia, and England."--

Immagini medievali di culto dopo il Medioevo
a cura di Vinni Lucherini
Roma : Viella, 2018
In che modo l'età moderna e contemporanea hanno guardato alle immagini medievali di culto? Come le hanno percepite? Sotto quali istanze le hanno conservate e ri-contestualizzate? E, invece, in che modo un'immagine che non era stata oggetto di culto diventa, alla fine del Medioevo o dopo il Medioevo, vettore di miracoli e fulcro di una nuova devozione? Il libro porta un contributo significativo a un tema ancora relativamente poco studiato, presentando esempi di più geografie europee, attraverso i quali si pone l'accento sulla dialettica tra ri-appropriazione e cancellazione del senso e delle funzioni originarie delle immagini, con uno sguardo particolare verso le componenti sociali implicate nei diversificati processi di modificazione connessi agli oggetti figurativi medievali.

Velázquez : su mundo y el nuestro : estudios dispersos
Portús Pérez, Javier, author
[Madrid] : Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica, 
Se aborda en este libro el estudio de la vida, la obra y la significación de Velázquez a través de una amplia variedad de temas y perspectivas, desde la etapa inicial de su carrera y los problemas atributivos que plantean dos cuadros que se relacionan con él hasta la recepción de su pintura: artistas, críticos, historiadores, literatos, museólogos o el público anónimo desfilan por sus páginas para explicar el lugar que ocupa el sevillano en el imaginario de la cultura occidental.0Velázquez dedicó la mayor parte de sus esfuerzos a su faceta de retratista cortesano, analizada aquí desde el punto de vista de las fórmulas de representación que fue adoptando, fruto siempre de un compromiso entre los retos estéticos, la cultura ceremonial de la época, los ideales políticos, la tradición y las expectativas que generaba la representación del rey y su entorno.0Entre retrato y retrato, el sevillano se acercó a la 'pintura de historia', campo en el que hizo gala de extraordinaria originalidad a través de narraciones complejas construidas con una técnica distinta y original. Fue ahí donde expresó de manera más explícita su postura ante la tradición pictórica y el papel que deseaba desempeñar dentro de ella.0A través de los catorce textos que componen este volumen, el autor plantea una de las reflexiones recientes más certeras sobre la figura de Velázquez y el significado de su obra.

Public space : Henri Lefebvre and beyond
D'Ascoli, Angela, author
Milan : Mimesis International, 
Public spaces have long been the object of countless studies. Yet, most of these have focused almost exclusively on the metropolitan setting, while neglecting the nature and function of public spaces in rural areas. This volume addresses precisely this gap, drawing from Henri Lefebvre's theories in order to propose an alternative vision of public spaces -- one which is centered on the local rhythms of rural areas and on their peculiar complexities. Rural public spaces can present all features of a Lefebvrian abstract space, in a way that is akin to that of cities. However, at the same time, their specific 'otherness' allows them to offer communal and organic responses to the pressure of global challenges, in a way that is largely precluded to cities.

exhibition curated by Germano Celant ; book editor, Germano Celant
Milan : Fondazione Prada, 
The exhibition explores the world of art and culture in Italy in the interwar years. Based on documentary and photographic evidence of the time, it reconstructs the spatial, temporal, social and political contexts in which the works of art were created and exhibited, and the way in which they were interpreted and received by the public of the time.the investigation was carried out in partnership with archives, foundations, museums, libraries and private collections and has resulted in the selection of more than 600 paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, posters, pieces of furniture, and architectural plans and models created by over 100 authors. In "Post Zang Tumb Tuuum. Art Life Politics: Italia 1918?1943", these objects are displayed with period images, original publications, letters, magazines, press clippings, and private photographs - for a total of 800 documents - in order to question, as explained by Germano Celant, "the idealism in exhibitions, where works of art, either in museums or other institutions, are displayed in an anonymous, monochromatic environment, generally on a white surface, to connect them to period photographic testimony and reinsert them in their original historical communication space". Exhibition: Fondazione Prada, Milano, Italy (18.02.-25.06.2018).

Courbet e la natura
Courbet, Gustave, 1819-1877, artist
Ferrara : Fondazione Ferrara arte, 
Provocatore, padre del realismo e uomo dalla personalità complessa, Courbet fu anche un eccellente paesaggista, che considerava la natura la sua principale fonte di ispirazione: non a caso due terzi della sua produzione sono costituiti da panorami, vedute, scorci, orizzonti, lande campestri, in cui il protagonista è l'elemento naturale.0Per la prima volta dopo circa cinquant'anni dall'ultima rassegna a lui dedicata, Gustave Courbet torna in Italia. Palazzo dei Diamanti gli rende omaggio con un'importante retrospettiva che racconterà la carriera del grande maestro francese approfondendo, in particolare, la sua ampia produzione di paesaggi e il suo singolare rapporto con la natura.0L'esposizione presenterà circa cinquanta tele provenienti dai più importanti musei internazionali e condurrà il visitatore in un percorso emozionante: dalle vedute della natia Franca Contea dipinte in gioventù, alle spettacolari marine spesso scosse dalla tempesta, dalle misteriose grotte da cui scaturiscono sorgenti alle cavità carsiche che si spalancano nei torrenti, dai sensuali nudi immersi in una rigogliosa vegetazione alle suggestive scene di caccia, fino ai potenti capolavori realisti della maturità.00Exhibition: Palazzo dei Diamanti, Ferrara, Italy (22.09.2018-07.01.2019).

Dokoupil, J. G. 1954- artist
Milano : Skira, 2018
Jirí Dokoupil was born in Krnov, former Czechoslovakia, in 1954. After the invasion of the Soviet army in Prague in 1968, he fled with his family to Germany. Dokoupil was founding-member of the German artist groups Mülheimer Freiheit and Junge Wilde, which arose in the late 1970s and early 1980s; they sought to explore a contemporary expression for their art by using a neo-expressive, figurative style of intensely colourful painting with traditional subjects and by overriding the intellectual, reduced formal language of minimal and conceptual art. Dokoupil developed a less wild, rather unusual method of working and soon found his own radical subjective way with individual considerations. The book presents a selection of over 200 works divided into three sections: Behold, I have become a painter! (1980-1989); A new beginning, but how? (1989-2000) and Suddenly becoming academic (2000-2017).

This book, the first major monograph on British artist Steven Claydon, published on the occasion of his 2015 exhibition at Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève, brings together visual documentation, texts addressing the artist's multifarious practice over recent years, and a comprehensive chronology spanning his twenty-year career. Claydon's work is rich and complex. As the reader will witness through the pages, his visual lexicon embraces a wide range of references, from contemporary design to technology, from architecture to archaeology, from art history to science fiction, from popular culture to medieval music. Synesthetic connections and associations represent the very essence of the way Claydon works and thinks. This book is conceived both as a tool for better understanding his dynamic and pluralistic practice, and his important role as a precursor to the practices of today's young artists.

Superrealistas : rayos-X y vanguardias artísticas
Lamata Manuel, Ana, 1980-
Madrid : Fundación Jorge Juan : 2017
Art is but a means to see, to see the invisible in the visible. And Apollinaire, Picasso, Duchamp, De Chirico or Picabia found in the x-rays and the trace of their passage through the bodies an analogical resource with which to give their visions to see. This foray into the art of the early twentieth century deals with the resonances of the discovery of x-rays in the thinking and artistic practice of the time, stating that, beyond simplifying "seismic" categorizations and nuances typical of all subjectivity, all these artists claimed a deeper and more dynamic realism than canonical mimetic realism. Everyone wanted to be more realistic, superrealistic. And they found in the x-rays an ideal analogy, both formal and procedural, of that way of seeing and presenting reality in depth, unfolding inexhaustibly new horizons of vision and knowledge, in which all of them committed themselves.

Jerusalem - earthly and heavenly, past, present and future - has always informed the Christian imagination: it is the intersection of the divine and human worlds, of time and eternity. Since the fourth century, it has been the site of the round Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built over the empty tomb acknowledged by Constantine as the tomb of Christ. Nearly four hundred years later, the Sepulchre's rotunda was rivalled by the octagon of the Dome of the Rock. The city itself and these two glorious buildings within it remain, to this day, the focus of pilgrimage and of intense devotion. Jerusalem and its numinous buildings have been distinctively re-imagined and re-presented in the design, topography, decoration and dedications of some very striking and beautiful churches and cities in Western Europe, Russia, the Caucasus and Ethiopia. Some are famous, others are in the West almost unknown. The essays In this richly illustrated book combine to do justice to these evocative buildings' architecture, roles and history.

In Lives of the Surrealists, Desmond Morris concentrates on the artists as people--as remarkable individuals. What were their personalities, their predilections, their character strengths and flaws? Focusing on the thirty-five artists most closely associated with the surrealist movement, Morris lends context to their life histories with narratives of their idiosyncrasies and their often complex love lives, alongside photos of the artists and their work"--

"Bill Traylor (ca. 1853-1949) is regarded today as one of the most important American artists of the twentieth century. A black man born into slavery in Alabama, he was an eyewitness to history--the Civil War, Emancipation, Reconstruction, Jim Crow segregation, the Great Migration, and the steady rise of African American urban culture in the South. Traylor would not live to see the civil rights movement, but he was among those who laid its foundation. Starting around 1939, Traylor--by then in his late eighties and living on the streets of Montgomery--took up pencil and paintbrush to attest to his existence and point of view. In keeping with this radical step, the paintings and drawings he made are visually striking and politically assertive; they include simple yet powerful distillations of tales and memories as well as spare, vibrantly colored abstractions. When Traylor died, he left behind more than one thousand works of art. In Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor, Leslie Umberger considers more than two hundred artworks to provide the most comprehensive and in-depth study of the artist to date; she examines his life, art, and powerful drive to bear witness through the only means he had, pictures. The author draws on a wealth of historical documents--including federal and state census records, birth and death certificates, slave schedules, and interviews with family members-- to clarify the record of Traylor's personal history and family life. The story of his art opens in the late 1930s, when Traylor first received attention for his pencil drawings on found board, and concludes with the posthumous success of his oeuvre"--

The development of painting in London from the Second World War to the 1970s has never before been told before as a single narrative. R. B. Kitaj's proposal, made in 1976, that there was a 'substantial School of London' was essentially correct but it caused confusion because it implied that there was a movement or stylistic group at work, when in reality no one style could cover the likes of Francis Bacon and also Bridget Riley.

"Balances gorgeous photographs against technical insight into the jewelry making process. Explores enamelling, a niche topic within the broad subject of Indian jewelry. Jewellry plays an important part in the everyday lives, important moments, festivals and religious aspects of Indian culture. It is not only girls and women who wear jewelry, but also boys, men, temple statues and even animals. The book excels in its detailed descriptions, which accompany the sumptuous array of images. We discover why enamel is used in the north of India, the origin and significance of gold, the significance of setting gems in a certain order, and jewellery's spiritual importance. The book covers in detail the meaning of the use of flowers and birds in Hindu influenced jewelry, looking through the eyes of 17th century European travellers who visited the rich Mogul courts.

Art as jewellery : from Calder to Kapoor
Guinness, Louisa, author
Woodbridge, Suffolk : ACC Art Books, 
Art as Jewellery is a visually stunning introduction to jewelry made by the titans of twentieth and twenty-first century art. From Salvador Dalí, Man Ray, Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso, through to Anish Kapoor, Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry, the great figures of modern art have all turned both thought and talent to jewelry. Often, they have eschewed the traditional jeweler's preoccupation with material value and provenance, more concerned with the conceptual or aesthetic significance of their work.0As is fitting for a book that covers a range of artists, every image is striking as it is unique. By using contemporary pictures, 'Art as Jewellery' develops a chronological timeline of jewelry presentation. Its pages are home to a variety of design sketches and photographs. Some were shot by renowned 20th century photographers, such as Ugo Mulas and Antonia Mulas, while others have been buried in archives for decades, unseen since the '60s. In contrast, modern works have been given model treatment by top photographer Alexander English, making this book a blend of new and classic jewellery art.

Judenmord : art and the Holocaust in post-war Germany
Hoffmann-Curtius, Kathrin, author
London, UK : Reaktion Books, 2018
Prequel Images -- The Human figure, 1945-9 -- Early Series -- Captured in One Picture -- A Confession -- Remembering in the 1950s -- Remembering Again: The Early 1960s -- The Past in the Present: Commenting on the Auschwitz Trial
"In remembering the murder of the Jews during the period of National Socialism in Germany, the contribution made by artists in the first twenty years after the end of the war has been largely ignored. But how did artists deal with their own experiences and relate these to what they saw, heard and read about the Holocaust? What images of the Jews were presented to the Germans after the end of the brutal regime? And did works of art in Germany contribute to a re-education process, new ways of thinking in both East and West Germany, and the culture of memory? Judenmord is the first collection of works of art specifically by German artists from the end of the war to the end of the 1960s that comment on the Holocaust. It presents paintings, drawings and etchings that bring to light the persecution of the Jews, and examines how artists reacted to injustice in a social situation where the majority stayed silent. Featuring an unfamiliar array of works, by artists such as Otto Pankok, Lea Grundig, Ludwig Meidner, Werner Tubke, Wolf Vostell, Joseph Beuys and Gerhard Richter, and including those by former camp inmates, this is essential reading for all those interested in the history of art and the Holocaust."--Publisher's description.

Rodin and the art of ancient Greece
Rodin, Auguste, 1840-1917, artist
London : Thames & Hudson Ltd, 2018
Rodin, famous for 'The thinker' and 'The kiss', was captivated by the sculptures of Classical antiquity and he constantly reworked and assimilated the forms of ancient Greek and Roman art in his own work. Rodin visited the British Museum for the first time in the summer of 1881 and there greatly admired the sculptures of the Parthenon. Before he saw the originals, he was already acquainted with plaster casts of them displayed in the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. The Parthenon sculptures continued to be a major influence on his own work and he visited them frequently on his return visits to London. He also amassed a huge collection of fragments of ancient sculpture that served as a source of inspiration.

The spirit of the Bauhaus
authors, Raphaèle Billé, Monique Blanc, Marie-Sophie Carron de la Carrière, Louise Curtis, Nicholas Fox Weber, Olivier Gabet, Jean-Louis Gaillemin, Mathieu Mercier, Anne Monier, Béatrice Quette ; translated from the French by Ruth Sharman
London ; Thames & Hudson, 2018
"'Architects, sculptors, painters, we all must return to the crafts!' declared architect Walter Gropius in his Bauhaus manifesto. Founded in 1919 as an art school in Weimar, the Bauhaus established itself as a major influence on twentieth- century art and design. Bauhaus students were taught by some of the most celebrated artists of the time, including Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, and Wassily Kandinsky. Having moved to Berlin in 1932 under architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, it was forced to close for good by the Gestapo in 1933. Uncovering the sources of inspiration that brought the Bauhaus into existence, from medieval cathedrals of Europe and Hokusai prints to William Morris and Arts and Crafts, The Spirit of the Bauhaus explores workshops and courses in detail, illustrating the extraordinary wealth of experimentation in every medium: ceramics, wood and metalwork, textiles, glass- painting, sculpture, mural, printing and binding, theater, architecture, and photography. This essential and accessible guide to the Bauhaus, published in time for the 100th anniversary of the school in 2019, celebrates a school that continues to be recognized as the most durable and influential source of modern ideas about art, design, and craft." -- Publisher's description

When artists curate : contemporary art and the exhibition as medium
Green, Alison (Art historian), author
London, UK : Reaktion Books, 2018
Machine generated contents note: 1.A Brief History Of Artists Curating Before The 1980s -- 2.Experimenting With And Without Curators -- 3.Museums And Not-Museums -- 4.Authoring -- 5.Habitus -- 6.Open Works -- 7.Displays Of Criticality.
An increasing proportion of exhibitions are curated by artists rather than professional curators. In this ground-breaking book Alison Green provides the first critical history of visual artists curating exhibitions. The artist emerges as someone who carries a special responsibility for critiquing art's institutions, brings considerable creativity to the craft of making exhibitions and, through experimentation, has changed the way exhibitions are understood to be authored and experienced. But the book also establishes a curious ubiquity to the artist-curated exhibition. Rather than being exceptional or rare, artists curate all the time and in all kinds of places: in galleries and in museums, in studios, in borrowed spaces such as shopfronts or industrial buildings, in front rooms and front windows, in zoos or concert halls, on streets and in nature. Seen from the perspective of artists, showing is a part of making art. Once this idea is understood, the history of art starts to look very different. 0With extensive explorations of well-known artists such as Daniel Buren, Goshka Macuga, Thomas Hirschhorn, Rosemarie Trockel, Hito Steyerl, Andy Warhol and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, this book will change the way readers think about and look at exhibitions.

Elizabeth de Portzamparc
Portzamparc, Élizabeth de
Mulgrave, Victoria : Images Publishing, 2018
In her work as architect and urbanist, French-Brazilian Elizabeth de Portzamparc designs buildings to serve as architectural symbols that are supporting what her practice sees as new values and as powerful urban landmarks that skilfully structure and inhabit the places where they are built. Applying her thinking and experience on the identity of cities and metropolises, de Portzamparc designs facilities that strengthen the qualities of the context into which they are inserted. With a sober, light, and streamlined architecture, based on the lightening of masses and on the economy of forms and materials, privileging the use of spaces with double exposure and a strong relation with nature, they create an atmosphere, conveying easily identifiable collective values and open dialog with the urban surroundings.

"Modern Acrylics Handbook Materials, Techniques, and Contemporary Applications for Today's Artists Written by Rheni Tauchid This new, sophisticated, comprehensive reference book will inspire and instruct painters on how to handle today's acrylics in innovative and individualistic ways. Acrylics have grown into the most adaptable art material for the modern age. Developments in the pigment industry have given acrylics a remarkably permanent, rich, and abundant palette, making it the favorite medium of many contemporary artists. As colors are being developed, their chemical components are also enhanced for better texture and handling. Readers of Modern Acrylics Handbook will learn how to create lush textures, vibrant colors, and sensuous surfaces with acrylic paints and mediums. In addition to traditional techniques, such as glazing and staining, this book demonstrates fresh applications, including soft sculpture, printing, and mosaics. A gallery of art from today's top artists working with acrylics is also featured for further creative insight and inspiration. Acrylics are not what they once were, but are in fact benefiting from an evolutionary process that no other paint medium has had the luxury to experience. They are the first truly modern paints because each component of their chemistry continues to evolve as our technology and knowledge expands. Those who paint, those who teach painting, and those who are learning to paint are all looking for the same thing: a paint that will stand up to just about any task it is given. In acrylics, artists have found answers to many problems left unaddressed by other mediums"--

The art of architectural daylighting : design + technology
Guzowski, Mary, author
London : Laurence King Publishing, 2018
Choreographed light -- Atmospheric light -- Sculpted light -- Material light -- Integrated light.
During the past decade there has been a tremendous growth in daylighting analysis methods, allowing designers to meet ever higher standards. But in relying too heavily on these methods, there is a risk of reducing daylighting design to a quantitative exercise, overlooking the qualitative, aesthetic and experiential aspects of design. This book reveals how architects have bridged the poetic and practical potential of daylighting to create exquisitely illuminated spaces. In the book, twelve buildings are examined, using photographs, drawings and plans. Each case study also includes technical analysis diagrams, specially created using specialist software. Featured architects include Renzo Piano, David Chipperfield and Steven Holl.
