How to look at stained glass : a guide to the church windows of England
Brocket, Jane
London : I.B. Tauris, 2018
Exploring a church -- How a stained-glass window is made -- A-Z of stained glass -- 50 places to see stained glass.

The magical qualities of stained glass have an enduring appeal, but church windows tend to be ignored as a form of creative and artistic expression. How to Look at Stained Glass is a fresh, unstuffy guide, which explores the medium by themes, patterns, designs, and effects. Using an A-Z format to reveal a multitude of fascinating details - all the way from apples to zig-zags - it makes looking at gloriously colourful, artistically important windows entertaining and rewarding. This layman's guide requires no previous historical, artistic or religious knowledge and the A-Z miscellany is in keeping with the pot-luck mix of windows to be found in most churches. It covers all the major periods and styles from medieval to modern, Victorian to post-war, eighteenth century to Arts and Crafts, figurative to abstract, and examines the fascinating and evolving iconography of stained glass.

Women house
edited by Camille Morineau and Lucia Pesapane ; translators, Martyn Back, Rebecca Law
Paris, France : 11 Conti Monnae de Paris ; [2017]
"Two notions intersect in the 'Women House' exhibition: a gender (female) and a space (the domestic sphere). Architecture and public space have traditionally been male preserves, whereas domestic space has been that of women; this historic fact is not, however, inevitable, as the exhibition demonstrates. Is the 'woman-house' a refuge or a prison, or can it become a space for creativity? The exhibition and accompanying catalogue reflect the complexity of possible points of view on the subject, which are not only feminist but also poetic and nostalgic. Women artists turn the house inside out: a symbol of isolation becomes a symbol of the construction of identity, the intimate becomes political, private space becomes public space, and the body turns into a piece of architecture. According to different cultural contexts and generations of artists, the house becomes a body-house, a homeland-house, or even a world-house."

Extraordinary ideas - realized
James Turrell ; publisher, Stiftung Frieder Burda
Berlin : Hatje Cantz Verlag, [2018]
For more than fifty years, James Turrell (*1943, Los Angeles), one of the most prominent artists of our time, has devoted himself to the exploration of the (im)materiality and perception of light. Turrell succeeds like no other artist in making it possible to experience light as an artistic medium through the senses and the intellect alike. He himself describes his art as "perceptual art." In his large installations the artist floods accessible spaces with light, which spills out in soft seas of color or intensely glowing, luminous fogs, taking viewers to the limits of their perception. This book provides a comprehensive view of Turrell's oeuvre and unites works of art from various phases of his career from the 1960s onward. Exhibition: Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden, Germany (09.06. - 28.10.2018).

Frank Stella unbound : literature and printmaking
Abbaspour, Mitra, author
Princeton, NJ Princeton University Art Museum, [2018]
Focusing on the vital role of literature in the development of the artistic practice of Frank Stella (b. 1936), this insightful book looks at four transformative series of prints made between 1984 and 1999. Each of these series is named after a literary work - the Had Gadya (a playful song traditionally sung at the end of the Passover Seder), Italian Folktales, compiled by Italo Calvino, Moby-Dick by Herman Melville, and The Dictionary of Imaginary Places by Alberto Manguel and Gianni Guadalupi. This investigation offers a critical new perspective on Stella: an examination of his interdisciplinary process, literary approach, and interest in the lessons of art history as crucial factors for his artistic development as a printmaker. Mitra Abbaspour, Calvin Brown, and Erica Cooke examine how Stella's dynamic engagement with literature paralleled the artist's experimentation with unconventional printmaking techniques and engendered new ways of representing spatial depth to unleash the narrative potential of abstract forms.00Exhibition: Princeton University Art Museum, USA (19.05-23.09.2018); Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, USA (06.10.2018-13.01.2019).

Zanele Muholi : somnyama ngonyama = hail the dark lioness
Muholi, Zanele, photographer,
New York, N.Y. : Aperture, 2018
"Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness includes one hundred self-portraits created by one of the most powerful visual activists of our time. In each of the images, Muholi drafts material props from her immediate environment in an effort to reject her journey, explore her own image and possibilities as a black woman in today's global society, and--most important--to speak emphatically in response to contemporary and historical racisms. As she states, "I am producing this photographic document to encourage people to be brave enough to occupy spaces, brave enough to create without fear of being vilified... To teach people about our history, to re-think what history is all about, to re-claim it for ourselves, to encourage people to use artistic tools such as cameras as weapons to fight back." More than twenty curators, poets, and authors offer written contributions that draw out the layers of meaning and possible readings to accompany select images. Powerfully arresting, this collection is as much a manifesto of resistance as it is an autobiographical, artistic statement."

The Way Back : The Paintings of George A. Weymouth, A Brandywine Valley Visionary
Blaugrund, Annette, author
New York, NY : Rizzoli Electa ; 2018
American artist George A. Frolic Weymouth (1936 2016) was a visionary conservationist, coachman, and accomplished painter. Like his friend and artistic mentor Andrew Wyeth, Weymouth worked chiefly in egg tempera and watercolour to create a highly personal panorama of the landscapes and people he knew in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, where he lived. Weymouth, a sixth-generation member of the du Pont family, was not only a skilful painter but also a seminal force in preserving tens of thousands of acres of picturesque scenery around the Brandywine River in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Weymouth also cofounded the Brandywine River Museum of Art, home to a distinguished collection of American art dating to the mid-nineteenth century and renowned for its holdings representing three generations of the Wyeth family of artists. Richly illustrated with Weymouth s paintings and sketches from throughout his career, this large-format volume also includes a chronology of the artist s fascinating life, illustrated with many personal and archival images.

Edward Hopper in Vermont
Clause, Bonnie T
Hanover ; University Press of New England, [2012]
Edward Hopper: the answer is in the paintings -- Initial forays into Vermont (1927) -- "Subjects for a painter ... at every hand" (1928-36) -- On the Slaters' farm, South Royalton (1937 and 1938) -- Hopper's Vermont landscapes -- Where are all the children?

This work is an account of Edward Hopper's sojourns in Vermont with his wife, Jo, illustrated by the watercolors and drawings that he made there. Edward and Jo Hopper first discovered Vermont in 1927, making day trips from the Whitney Studio Club's summer retreat for New York artists in Charlestown, New Hampshire. In 1935 and 1936 the Hoppers again traveled to Vermont, this time from their summer home in Cape Cod, in Edward's continuing search for new places to paint. During these quests they identified the White River and what Edward considered to be Vermont's "finest" river valley, and they returned there for longer visits in 1937 and 1938, boarding at Robert and Irene Slater's Wagon Wheels farm in South Royalton. These "vacations" were a change from the usual tempo of their lives, a break from the studio-bound easels, canvas, and oils, and an opportunity to paint something different, to be in a new place and paint en plein air. Over the course of his Vermont sojourns, Edward Hopper produced some two dozen paintings, watercolors that are among the most distinctive of his regional works, strongly characterized by place. In this volume, the author tells the story of the Hoppers' visits to Vermont, their stays on the Slater farm, and their introduction to farm life. She locates the sites shown in Hopper's Vermont paintings, identifies two watercolors not previously recognized as Vermont scenes, and traces the development of Hopper's singular interpretations of the Vermont landscape. Here the author details the provenance of the Vermont paintings through the years, tracking the history of sales leading to the works' ultimate homes with private collectors and museums. Showcasing all the Vermont paintings in color, this volume tells the story of the creation, collection, and business of producing great art.

Sargent : the masterworks
Herdrich, Stephanie L., author
New York, NY : Rizzoli Electra, a division of Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., 2018
Sargent in Paris and beyond : early career to 1887 -- Professional success : Sargent in the United States and England, 1887-1925 -- Beyond the portrait studio, 1900-1925 -- Chronology.

An introduction to the painter's work, 'Sargent: The Masterworks' features 100 of his most beloved paintings. Illustrating all aspects of his diverse oeuvre portraits, landscapes, mural commissions in oil and watercolour, this handsome new book includes works from both private and public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art's infamous 'Madame X'. Author Stephanie L. Herdrich draws on a wealth of new research to provide both an essential overview and a more nuanced understanding of the great American painter. Richly illustrated, the book s three chapters cover the artist's career from his childhood and early years in Paris, to his mid-career portraits made in England and United States, and his later years painting out of doors. An illustrated chronology contains fascinating details and archival imagery about the artist's life. Sargent's cosmopolitan upbringing and education made him perfectly suited to capture the upwardly mobile bourgeoisie and aristocrats of his era, creating sensual portraits that depict his sitters with startling vibrancy. Though he achieved tremendous success in portraiture, Sargent focused on painting outdoors after 1900, achieving the most brilliant and personal images of his career. One of the greatest portraitists and watercolourists of his time, Sargent remains one of the most well-known and well-loved of all American artists.

Enduring ideals : Rockwell, Roosevelt & the four freedoms
Plunkett, Stephanie Haboush, author
Stockbridge, Massachusetts : Norman Rockwell Museum ; [2018]
Illuminates both the historic context in which FDR articulated the Four Freedoms -- Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear -- and the role of Rockwell's paintings in bringing them to life for millions of people, rallying the public behind the War effort and changing the tenor of the times. In telling the story of how Rockwell's works were transformed from a series of paintings into a national movement, the exhibition also demonstrates the power of illustration to communicate ideas and inspire change. Also includes numerous other examples of painting, illustration, and more, by both Rockwell and a broad range of his contemporaries, from J.C. Leyendecker and Mead Schaeffer, to Ben Shahn, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks, among others.

Looking at men : anatomy, masculinity, and the modern male body
Callen, Anthea, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 2018
Looking at men' considers how art, medicine, and sport in the 19th century overlapped to reinforce notions of masculinity. Through a shared violence of human dissection, pugilism, and war, men in artistic and medical professions secured their masculine status and professional authority. This volume scrutinizes the relationships between the heteronormative, the homosocial, and the homoerotic in art and depictions of anatomy. Close analysis of works by Cezanne, Courbet, Degas, Delacroix, Gericault, Millet, Pissarro, and others offers fresh insight, reinforced by parallels illustrated in literary descriptions of bodies in Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, and Sherlock Holmes. Anthea Callen examines how ideas of healthy male "normality" and a modern virile masculinity were constructed and negotiated through these artistic and literary representations; she also measures these virile body images against actual, classed, or racialized male bodies, delivering lively scholarship that spans art history, history of science, literature, and anthropology, as well as studies of masculinity and sexuality.

Amsterdam : Hermitage, [2018]
"Halverwege de achttiende eeuw is Europa in de ban van de opgravingen in Italië. De schoonheid van de klassieke kunstschatten die bovenkomen, slaan in als een bom. De classic beauties worden dé inspiratiebron voor kunstenaars en zullen een eeuw lang de smaak bepalen. In de kunsten, vooral de beeldhouwkunst, wordt het naakte lichaam herontdekt. Kunstenaars en jonge Europese aristocraten gaan op Grand Tour, een maandenlange reis om de klassieke opgravingen en kunstwerken met eigen ogen te zien. Ook Goethe en de 'graaf en gravin van het Noorden', de latere Russische tsaar Paul I en Maria Fjodorovna, ondernemen de tocht naar Italië. In de Eeuwige Stad ontmoeten ze beroemde schilders en beeldhouwers als Pompeo Batoni, Anton Raphael Mengs, Angelika Kauffmann en de beroemde Antonio Canova. In 'Classic Beauties' volgt de lezer de Italiëgangers en de levensverhalen van de belangrijkste neoclassicistische kunstenaars. Door deze verhalen én de vele illustraties ontstaat een levendig beeld van een bijzonder tijdvak. Naast Paul en Maria Fjodorovan ondernam ook hun dochter, de Nederlandse koningin Anna Pavlovna, de tocht naar Italië, samen met haar dochter Sophie en zoon Alexander. Ook van die reis doet dit boek verslag".

Leonardo : discoveries from Verrocchio's studio : early paintings and new attributions
Kanter, Laurence B., author
New Haven : Yale University Art Gallery, 2018
Presents exciting, original conclusions about Leonardo da Vinci's early life as an artist and amplifies his role in Andrea del Verrocchio's studio. This groundbreaking re-examination of the beginnings of Leonardo da Vinci's (1452-1519) life as an artist suggests new candidates for his earliest surviving work and revises our understanding of his role in the studio of his teacher, Andrea del Verrocchio (1435-1488). Anchoring this analysis are important yet often overlooked considerations about Verrocchio's studio-specifically, the collaborative nature of most works that emerged from it and the probability that Leonardo must initially have learned to paint in tempera, as his teacher did. The book searches for the young artist's hand among the tempera works from Verrocchio's studio and proposes new criteria for judging Verrocchio's own painting style. Several paintings are identified here as likely the work of Leonardo and others long considered works by Verrocchio or his assistant Lorenzo di Credi (1457/59-1536) may now be seen as collaborations with Leonardo sometime before his departure from Florence in 1482/83. In addition to Laurence Kanter's detailed arguments, the book features three essays presenting recent scientific analysis and imaging that support the new attributions of paintings, or parts of paintings, to Leonardo--Vendor's note.

Reuse and renovation in Roman material culture : functions, aesthetics, interpretations
edited by Diana Y. Ng, University of Michigan-Dearborn; Molly Swetnam-Burland, College of William and Mary, Virginia
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
This book explores the spoliation of architectural and sculptural materials during the Roman empire. Examining a wide range of materials, including imperial portraits, statues associated with master craftsmen, architectural moldings and fixtures, tombs and sarcophagi, arches and gateways, it demonstrates that secondary intervention was common well before Late Antiquity, in fact, centuries earlier than has been previously acknowledged. The essays in this volume, written by a team of international experts, collectively argue that re-use was a natural feature of human manipulation of the physical environment, rather than a sign of social pressure. Re-use often reflected appreciation for the function, form, and design of the material culture of earlier eras. Political, social, religious, and economic factors also contributed to the practice. A comprehensive overview of spoliation and re-use, this volume examines the phenomenon in Rome and throughout the Mediterranean world.--

Dialogue on the errors and abuses of painters
Gilio, Giovanni Andrea, -1584, author
Los Angeles : The Getty Research Institute, [2018]
Gilio on painters of sacred images / Michael Bury -- Gilio's point of view / Carol M. Richardson -- Gilio's text and the English translation / Lucinda Byatt.

Giovanni Andrea Gilio's Dialogue on the Errors and Abuses of Painters (1564) is one of the first treatises on art published in the post-Tridentine period. It remains a key primary source for the discussion of the reform of art as it unfolded at the time of the Council of Trent and the Catholic Reformation. Through a spirited conversation among six protagonists, Gilio grapples with a host of issues, from the relationship between poetry and painting, to the function of religious images, to the effects such images have on viewers. The primary focus is the proper representation of history, especially sacred history, and Michelangelo's Last Judgment fresco in the Sistine Chapel is the exemplary case. Michelangelo's painting is both praised and condemned as an example of the possibilities and limits of art. Although Gilio's dialogue is often used to point out the Roman Catholic Church's more controlling view of art and artists, the unabridged text--here translated into English in full for the first time--reveals the nuanced and provisional debates about how subject matter should be represented in this crucial period--Cover page 4.

René Magritte : the fifth season
Magritte, René, 1898-1967, artist
San Francisco, California : San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 2018
The fifth season / Caitlin Haskell -- Odalisques of revolt / Michel Draguet -- Mad or bad? Magritte's artistic rebellion / Abigail Solomon-Godeau -- Otherworldly: Magritte's L'empire des lumières / Sandra Zalman -- The hypertrophy of objects / Clare Elliott -- Self-portrait as anonymous artist / Caitlin Haskell -- "The act of painting is hidden": the materials and technique of René Magritte / Katrina Rush.

"When René Magritte reached his 40s, something unexpected happened. The painter, who had honed an iconic Surrealist style between 1926 and 1938, suddenly started making paintings that looked almost nothing like his earlier work. First he adopted an Impressionist aesthetic, borrowing the sweet, hazy palette of Pierre-Auguste Renoir-which he described as "sunlit Surrealism." Then his style shifted again, incorporating popular imagery, the brash colors of Fauvism and the gestural brushwork of Expressionism. And then Magritte returned to his classic style as if nothing had happened. René Magritte: The Fifth Season looks at the art Magritte made during and after the stylistic crises of the 1940s, revealing his shifting attitudes toward painting. Subjects explored in this volume include the artist's Renoir period; the période vache, with its Fauvist- and Expressionist-style paintings that are little known to American audiences; the "hypertrophy of objects" paintings, a series that plays with the scale of familiar objects; and the enigmatic Dominion of Light suite, paintings that suggest the simultaneous experience of day and night. Featuring full-color plates of approximately 50 oil paintings, and a dozen of the artist's gouaches, René Magritte: The Fifth Season offers a new understanding of Magritte's special position in the history of 20th-century art. In a career of almost half a century, Belgian Surrealist René Magritte (1898-1967) probed the distance between object, language and image. Even as he playfully explored new styles, his painting practice remained consistent in its cautionary message not to equate the observable world with reality in all its fullness."--Publisher's description.

The complete works of Percier and Fontaine
Percier, Charles, 1764-1838, author
New York : Princeton Architectural Press : [2018]
Palais, maisons, et autres édifices modernes dessinés à Rome (1798) -- Recueil de décorations intérierures (1812) -- Choix des plus célèbres maisons de plaisance de Rome et de ses environs (1824) -- Plans de plusieurs châteaux, palais et résidences de souverains de France, d'Italie, d'Espagne et de Russie, dessinés sur une même échelle pour être comparés A.P.P.P.L.P.D.R.D.R (1838).

"Charles Percier and Pierre Fontaine were the official government architects of Napoleon, as well as two of the most celebrated teachers at the legendary Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and were responsible for developing the highly influential neoclassical Empire, or Directoire, style of design. Their designs and renovations can be seen throughout the monuments and structures of Napoleonic France, including extensive renovations to the Louvre and Tuileries palaces, construction of the Arc de Triomphe de Carrousel, as well as their true masterpiece, the Empress Josephine's Chateau de Malmaison, where they designed every interior detail, helping invent and shape the modern field of interior design. This will be the definitive edition on the work of Percier and Fontaine, bringing together their four most influential volumes on architecture and interior design, comprising detailed studies of the most important classical and neoclassical architecture across Europe, as well as their own designs, and featuring an introduction by esteemed architecture critic and historian Barry Bergdoll"--

Ink worlds : contemporary Chinese painting from the collection of Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang = 墨境 : 山崎朗子楊致遠藏當代水墨畫 / Richard Vinograd, Ellen Huang with contributions from Michael Knight, Yanzhi Wang, Likun Yang, Yechen Zhao
Vinograd, Richard Ellis, author
Stanford, CA : Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Centre for Visual Arts ; 2018
"Ink arts have flourished in China for more than two millennia. Once primarily associated with elite culture, ink painting is now undergoing a popular resurgence. Ink Worlds explores the modern evolution of this art form, from scrolls and panel paintings to photographic and video forms, and documents how Chinese ink arts speak to present-day concerns while simultaneously referencing deeply historical materials, themes, and techniques. Presenting the work of some two dozen artists from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the United States in more than fifty full-color reproductions, the book spans pioneering abstract work from the late 1960s through twenty-first century technological innovations. Nine illustrated essays build a compelling case for understanding the modern form as a distinct genre, fusing art and science, history and technology, painting and film into an accessible theory of contemporary ink painting. The Yamazaki/Yang collection is widely recognized as one of the most important private collections of contemporary Chinese ink art. Ink Worlds is the first book to represent the collection in its entirety. From its atmospheric mountainscapes to precise calligraphy, this book is a revelation, bringing together the past, present, and future of an enduring and adaptable art form."--

Facing the monumental : Rebecca Belmore
edited by Wanda Nanibush
Toronto, Ontario : Art Gallery of Ontario, 2018
"In a 2012 performance piece, Rebecca Belmore transformed an oak tree surrounded by monuments to colonialism in Toronto's Queens Park into a temporary 'non-monument' to the Earth. For more than 30 years, she has given voice in her art to social and political issues, making her one of the most important contemporary artists working today. Employing a language that is both poetic and provocative, Belmore's art has tackled subjects such as water and land rights, women's lives and dignity, and state violence against Indigenous people. Writes Wanda Nanibush, 'by capturing the universal truths of empathy, hope and transformation, her work positions the viewer as a witness and encourages us all to face what is monumental.' Rebecca Belmore: Facing the Monumental presents 28 of her most famous works, including Fountain, her entry to the 2005 Venice Biennale, and At Pelican Falls, her moving tribute to residential school survivors, as well as numerous new and in-progress works. The book also includes an essay by Wanda Nanibush, Curator of Indigenous Art at the AGO, that examines the intersection of art and politics. It will accompany an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario scheduled from 12 July to 21 October 2018. Rebecca Belmore is one of Canada's most distinguished artists. She has won the Hnatyshyn Award (2009), the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts (2013), and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize (2016). A member of Lac Seul First Nation, she was the first Aboriginal woman to represent Canada at the Venice Biennale. She has also participated in more than 60 one-person and group exhibitions around the world" -- Provided by publisher.

Contemporary Japanese houses
edited by Zhao Xiang
Mulgrave, Victoria : Images Publishing, 2018
Reasons for diversity of Japanese houses -- Basic living requirements of houses -- Issues on living space -- Two aspects of housing design -- Design themes of different houses -- References -- Case studies. Rural style ; Reflecting culture and customs ; Reflecting openness ; Emphasizing middle space ; Getting close to nature ; Adapting to modern lifestyle.

Over forty projects showcase the immense variety among Japanese detached houses constructed over the past three years. Some of these houses are designed around the concept of 'intermediate space' featuring courtyards, landscapes, and tearooms. Others take 'how to respond to the environment' as the design theme, employing green building techniques and outdoor insulation, etc; while still others are inspired by the question of 'how to implement one's lifestyle', focusing on urban housing, family reconstitution, and variability. Readers will learn about the meaning of and the story behind these designs through project descriptions, experiencing the conciseness which defines Japanese house design. In addition to this, Professor Zhao Xiang from Fukuoka University discusses the reasons for this diversity. His informative description of architecture and design theory will help the reader understand the methods behind Japanese house creation, and this book also includes useful reference materials, which can be used as a basis for new houses in the Japanese style.

Engendering an avant-garde : the unsettled landscapes of Vancouver photo-conceptualism
Modigliani, Leah, author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, [2018]
Jeff Wall's Picture for Women (1979) and The Destroyed Room (1978): colonizing the space of gendered discourse -- Emily Carr and the legacy of Commonwealth modernism -- Myth and the 'home culture concept' -- Establishing the theory and practice of a defeatured landscape -- 1970s and the gendered spaces of the counter tradition -- Feminist theoretical and visual challenges to modernist representation -- Conclusion.

"Engendering an avant-garde is the first book to comprehensively examine the origins of Vancouver photo-conceptualism in its regional context between 1968 and 1990. Employing discourse analysis of texts written by and about artists, feminist critique and settler-colonial theory, the book discusses the historical transition from artists' creation of 'defeatured landscapes' between 1968-71 to their cinematographic photographs of the late 1970s and the backlash against such work by other artists in the late 1980s. It is the first study to provide a structural account for why the group remains all-male. It accomplishes this by demonstrating that the importation of a European discourse of avant-garde activity, which assumed masculine social privilege and public activity, effectively excluded women artists from membership."--

Semenova, N. I︠U︡. author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 2018
"Sergei Shchukin was a highly successful textiles merchant in the latter half of the nineteenth century, but he also had a great eye for beauty. He was one of the first to appreciate the qualities of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists and to acquire works by Cezanne, Matisse, and Picasso. A trailblazer in the Russian art world, Shchukin and his collection shocked, provoked, and inspired awe, ridicule and derision among his contemporaries. This is the first English-language biography of Sergei Shchukin, written by art historian Natalia Semenova and adapted by Shchukin's grandson André Delocque. Featuring personal diary entries, correspondence, interviews, and archival research, it brings to light the life of a man who has hitherto remained in the shadows, and shows how despite his controversial reputation, he opened his collection to the public, inspiring a future generation of artists and changing the face of the Russian art world."--Provided by publisher.

Through the portal : locating the magnificent / Zadie Smith -- Plates -- The direct gaze : Deana Lawson in conversation with Arthur Jafa.

One of the most intriguing photographers of her generation, Deana Lawson's subject is black expressive culture and her canvas is the African Diaspora. Over the last ten years, she has created a striking visual language to describe black identities, through figurative portraiture and social documentary accounts of ceremonies and rituals. Lawson works with large-format cameras and models she meets in the United States and on travels in the Caribbean and Africa to construct arresting, highly structured, and deliberately theatrical scenes animated by an exquisite range of color and attention to surprising details: bedding and furniture in domestic interiors or lush plants in Edenic gardens. The body-often nude-is central. Throughout her work, Lawson seeks to portray the personal and the powerful in black life. 'Deana Lawson: An Aperture Monograph' features forty-five beautifully reproduced photographs and an extensive interview with the filmmaker Arthur Jafa.

Reilly, Diane J., author
Amsterdam : Amsterdam University Press, [2018]
Communal singing and reading of Latin texts formed the core of Christian ritual and occupied hours of the Benedictine monk's day. These monks also illustrated the texts, and the full meaning of these images is often only revealed when analysed in concert with the oral and written word that originally accompanied them. The earliest manuscripts of the Cîteaux, copied and illustrated during a period of intense reform at the monastery, demonstrate the interdependence between art, liturgy, and reform.

Designs of destruction : the making of monuments in the twentieth century
Allais, Lucia, author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2018
Introduction: monument survival -- "Wardens of civilization": conservation and diplomacy at the 1931 Athens Conference -- "Battles designed to preserve": the allies' lists of monuments in World War II -- Unwitting city planning: maps of monuments and the American bombing of Europe, 1943-1945 -- Bridge: let's visit UNESCO house -- "Stones also die": UNESCO and the decolonization of museums, 1960-1975 -- Integrities: the salvage of Abu Simbel, 1960-1980 -- Coda: viscosities.

The twentieth century was the most destructive in human history, but from its vast landscapes of ruins was born a new architectural type: the cultural monument. In the wake of World War I, an international movement arose which aimed to protect architectural monuments in large numbers, and regardless of style, hoping not only to keep them safe from future conflicts, but also to make them worthy of protection from more quotidian forms of destruction. This movement was motivated by hopeful idealism as much as by a pragmatic belief in bureaucracy. An evolving group?including architects, intellectuals, art historians, archaeologists, curators, and lawyers?grew out of the new diplomacy of the League of Nations. During and after World War II, it became affiliated with the Allied Military Government, and was eventually absorbed by the UN as UNESCO. By the 1970s, this organization had begun granting World Heritage status to a global register of significant sites?from buildings to bridges, shrines to city centers, ruins to colossi.0Examining key episodes in the history of this preservation effort?including projects for the Parthenon, for the Cathedral of St-Lô, the temples of Abu Simbel, and the Bamyian Buddahs ?Lucia Allais demonstrates how the group deployed the notion of culture to shape architectural sites, and how architecture in turn shaped the very idea of global culture. More than the story of an emergent canon, Designs of Destruction emphasizes how the technical project of ensuring various buildings? longevity jolted preservation into establishing a transnational set of codes, values, practices. Yet as entire nations? monumental geographies became part of survival plans, Allais also shows, this paradoxically helped integrate technologies of destruction?from bombs to bulldozers?into cultural governance.

John McAndrew's modernist vision : from the Vassar College Art Library to the Museum of Modern Art in New York

John McAndrew's Modernist Vision' tells the compelling story of the architect, scholar, and curator John McAndrew, who played a key role in redefining modernism in the United States from the 1930s onward. The designer of the Vassar College Art Library-arguably the first modern interior on a college campus-and the curator of architecture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1937 to 1941, McAndrew was instrumental in creating a distinct and innovative aesthetic that bridged the European modernist lineage and American regional vernacular. Providing a fascinating glimpse into McAndrew's life, his associations with important architects and artists, and the historical context that shaped his work, this book is a thoroughly researched testament to a man who left a powerful mark on the evolution of American architecture.

The politics of painting : fascism and Japanese art during the Second World War
Ikeda, Asato, author
Honolulu : University of Hawaiʻi Press, [2018]
Japanese paintings, fascism, and war -- Yokoyama Taikan's paintings of Mount Fuji -- Yasuda Yukihiko's camp at Kisegawa and modern aesthetics -- Uemura Shōen's Bijin-ga -- Fujita Tsuguharu and events in Akita (1937).

This rich and nuanced study examines a set of paintings produced in Japan during the 1930s and early 1940s that have received little scholarly attention. Asato Ikeda views the work of four prominent artists of the time - Yokoyama Taikan, Yasuda Yukihiko, Uemura Shoen, and Fujita Tsuguharu - through the lens of fascism, showing how their seemingly straightforward paintings of Mount Fuji, samurai, beautiful women, and the countryside supported the war by reinforcing a state ideology that justified violence in the name of the country's cultural authenticity. She highlights the politics of "apolitical" art and challenges the postwar labeling of battle paintings - those depicting scenes of war and combat - as uniquely problematic. Although these artists employed different styles and favored different subjects, each maintained close ties with the state and presented what he considered to be the most representative and authentic portrayal of Japan. Ikeda reveals the global dimensions of wartime nationalist Japanese art and opens up the possibility of dialogue with scholarship on art produced in other countries around the same time, particularly Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.

"Kenojuak Ashevak shot to fame in 1970 when Canada Post printed The Enchanted Owl, a print of a black-and-red plumed nocturnal bird, on a postage stamp. She later became known as the magic-marker-wielding 'grandmother of Inuit art,' famous for her fluid graphic storytelling and her stunning depictions of wildlife. She was a defining figure in Inuit art and one of the first Indigenous artists to be embraced as a contemporary Canadian artist. Ashevak's legacy inspired her nephew, Timootee (Tim) Pitsiulak, to take up drawing at the Kinngait Studios. In his relatively short career, he became a popular figure, known for drawing animal figures with a hunter's precision and capturing the technological presence of the South in Nunavut. Tunirrusiangit, 'their gifts' or 'what they gave' in Inuktitut, celebrates the achievements of two remarkable artists who challenged the parameters of tradition while consistently articulating a compelling vision of the Inuit world view. Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, opening on 16 June and continuing until late August, Tunirrusiangit features more than 60 reproductions of paintings, drawings, and documentary photographs. Completing the book are essays by contemporary artists and curators Jocelyn Piirainen, Anna Hudson, Georgiana Uhlyarik, Koomuatuk Curley, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, and Taqralik Partridge that address both the past and future of Inuit identity" -- Provided by publisher.

"The historiography of early photography has scarcely examined Islamic countries in the Near and Middle East, although the new technique was adopted very quickly there by the 1840s. Which regional, local, and global aspects can be made evident? What role did autochthonous image and art traditions have, and which specific functions did photography meet since its introduction? This collective volume deals with examples from Iran, the Ottoman Empire, and the Arab lands and with the question of local specifics, or an 'indigenous lens'. The contributions broach the issues of regional histories of photography, local photographers, specific themes and practices, and historical collections in these countries. They offer, for the first time in book form, a cross-section through a developing field of the history of photography"--Publisher's website.

Zeng Fanzhi - Van Gogh
Zeng, Fanzhi, 1964- artist
Amsterdam : Van Gogh Museum, [2017]
The Van Gogh Museum invited the celebrated Chinese artist Zeng Fanzhi to present recent work inspired by Vincent van Gogh. Although the two artists differ greatly in historical period and place of origin, their art is very similar in substance. This similarity is apparent in the themes that Van Gogh and Zeng both perpetually explore, such as style, identity and personality, and the question of self-control and the outside world's degree of control over the individual. It is evident too in their powerful, searing paintings. Van Gogh's original paintings became famous partly for their vigorous, seemingly inimitable brushwork - the painter's individual 'handwriting'. Zeng has responded to this same brushwork with handwriting from a very different cultural tradition, namely that of Chinese calligraphy. He has done so at a time when Van Gogh has become immensely popular in countries like China and Japan. The result is a Van Gogh seen through Chinese eyes, in a way Vincent himself could never have imagined. Zeng takes meanings from the past and reuses them, over and over again, to generate valuable new meanings. This book focuses on Zeng's recent work, inspired by Van Gogh's iconic self-portraits, and explores the position and importance of the self-portrait within his oeuvre.
