Title: The World through Roman Eyes : Anthropological Approaches to Ancient Culture
Author: Bettini, Maurizio (et al)
Price: $150.00
ISBN: 9781107157613
Record created on 04/20/18
Description: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2018. 25cm., hardcover, 482pp. illus.

Summary: The culmination of a project aimed at showcasing, in a systematic way, the potential of applying anthropological perspectives to classical studies, this volume highlights the fundamental contribution this approach has to make to our understanding of ancient Roman culture. Through the close study of themes such as myth, polytheism, sacrifice, magic, space, kinship, the gift, friendship, economics, animals, plants, riddles, metaphors, and images in Roman society (often in comparison with Greece) – where the texts of ancient culture are allowed to speak in their own terms and where the experience of the “natives” (rather than the horizon of the observer) is privileged – a rich panorama emerges of the worldview, beliefs, and deep structures that shaped and guided this culture.

Contents: 1. Comparison, Maurizio Bettini. 2. Metaphors, William Michael Short. 3. Polytheism, Gabriella Pironti & Micol Perfigli. 4. Myth, Maurizio Bettini. 5. Sacrifice, Francesca Prescendi. 6. Witches, Laura Cherubini. 7. Kinship, Mario Lentano. 8. Friendship and the Gift, Renata Raccanelli & Lucia Beltrami. 9. Economy, Cristiano Viglietti. 10. Space, Gianluca De Sanctis. 11.

Title: Radical Inventor: A Retrospective of ALEXANDER CALDER
Author: Grace, Anne ; Elizabeth Turner (eds)
Price: $50.00
ISBN: 9788874398287
Record created on 03/02/18
Description: Milan: 5 Continents, 2018. 28cm., pbk., 256pp., 250 color illus. Exhibition held at Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Summary: American artist Alexander Calder (1898–1976) created a “new line” that was not simply an evolution of forms and styles. From the start, it was clear to all who witnessed him at work that he was doing something radically new. This book, published to accompany a major exhibition, shows how Calder’s work emerged from expectations of change in American popular culture. Twelve essays from major contributors explore how Calder, among the first college-trained artists, found techniques and inspiration in many disciplines and their development, including technology, engineering, architecture, physics, and astronomy. All these contributed to the development of his wire sculptures, mobiles, and stabiles, including his famous Circus. Superb photographs of more than 100 works and comparative illustrations guide readers through this innovative and unique path.

Title: VIJA CELMINS : To Fix the Image in Memory
Author: Garrels, Gary (et al)
Price: $60.00
ISBN: 9780300234213
Record created on 03/28/18
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, in association with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, 272pp., 230 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Best known for her striking drawings of ocean surfaces, begun in 1968 and revisited over many years both in drawings and paintings, Vija Celmins (b. 1938) has been creating exquisitely detailed renderings of natural imagery for more than five decades. The oceans were followed by desert floors and night skies—all subjects in which vast, expansive distances are distilled into luminous, meticulous, and mesmerizing small-scale artworks. For Celmins, this obsessive “redescribing” of the world is a way to understand human consciousness in relation to lived experience. The first major publication on the artist in twenty years, this comprehensive and lavishly illustrated volume explores the full range of Celmins’s work produced since the 1960s—drawings and paintings as well as sculpture and prints. Scholarly essays, a narrative chronology, and a selection of excerpts from interviews with the artist illuminate her methods and techniques; survey her early years in Los Angeles, where she was part of a circle that included James Turrell and Ken Price; and trace the development of her work after she moved to New York City and befriended figures such as Robert Gober and Richard Serra.

Title: Expressionism and Poster Design in Germany 1905-1922 : Between Spirit and Commerce

Price: $179.00

Notify when available.
Description: Leiden: Brill, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, illus.

Summary: In Expressionism and Poster Design in Germany 1905-1925, Kathleen Chapman re-defines Expressionism by situating it in relation to the most common type of picture in public space during the Wilhelmine twentieth century, the commercial poster. Focusing equally on visual material and contemporaneous debates surrounding art, posters, and the image in general, this study reveals that conceptions of a “modern” image were characterized not so much by style or mode of production and distribution, but by a visual rhetoric designed to communicate more directly than words. As instances of such rhetoric, Expressionist art and posters emerge as equally significant examples of this modern image, demonstrating the interconnectedness of the aesthetic, the utilitarian, and the commercial in European modernism.

Contents: Introduction- Expressionism between Spirit and Commerce. 1. Illustration, Abstraction, Advertising- Wilhelm Worringer and the Continuities of German Art. 2. Hieroglyphic Appeal- The Visual Rhetoric of the German Object Poster, Werkbund Style, and Expressionist Art. 3. Promoting Expressionism before Expressionism- Künstlergruppe Brücke and Theories of the Modern Image before World War I. 4. From War to Revolution, from Propaganda to Art- Expressionism and Posters of the Revolutionary Period. 5. Expressionism after Expressionism- "Dead" Expressionism and Theories of the Modern Image after World War I. Conclusion- Expressionism as Buzzword.

Title: The Youth of Early Modern Women
Author: Cohen, Elizabeth S. ; Margaret Reeves (eds)
Price: $130.00
ISBN: 9789462984325
Record created on 04/02/18
Description: Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 2018. 24cm., hardcover, 344pp. illus

Summary: Through fifteen essays that work from a rich array of primary sources, this collection makes the novel claim that early modern European women, like men, had a youth. European culture recognised that, between childhood and full adulthood, early modern women experienced distinctive physiological, social, and psychological transformations. Drawing on two mutually shaped layers of inquiry - cultural constructions of youth and lived experiences - these essays exploit a wide variety of sources, including literary and autobiographical works, conduct literature, judicial and asylum records, drawings, and material culture. The geographical and temporal ranges traverse England, Ireland, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, and Mexico from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. This volume brings fresh attention to representations of female youth, their own life writings, young women's training for adulthood, courtship, and the emergent sexual lives of young unmarried women.

Title: JANE FREILICHER : ‘50s New York
Author: Kernan, Nathan (intro)
Price: $35.00
ISBN: 9781947232044
Record created on 09/11/18
Description: New York: Paul Kasmin Gallery, 2018. 31cm., pbk., 94pp., 53 color, 15 b&w illus.

Summary: Jane Freilicher (1924–2014) established herself in the 1950s among a generation of New York painters including Helen Frankenthaler, Alex Katz, Joan Mitchell and Larry Rivers. ‘50s New York is the first book to focus on Freilicher’s paintings of that decade—a body of work that Fairfield Porter perceptively termed %traditional and radical.% It includes early still lifes, portraits and the studio views that elucidate her characteristically deft balance of interior and exterior. Painted within various studios in lower Manhattan, the works are evocative of a downtown milieu that has since come to represent the period’s golden age of spirited, improvisational artistic freedom. The book includes an essay by writer Nathan Kernan; a 1958 conversation between Jane Freilicher and John Ashbery; rare archival material from across the artist’s life; and a full chronology.

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 240pp., 160 color illus. Exhibition held at Kunstmuseum Basel. English edition.

Summary: Thirteen years after the last major presentation of his work in Switzerland, at the Kunsthaus Zürich, the Kunstmuseum Basel mounts a comprehensive monographic exhibition of the work of Henry Fuseli, a native son of Zurich who rose to fame in Rome and London. One of the most inventive and unconventional innovators in late-eighteenth-century art, Fuseli stood on the threshold between classicism and nascent Romanticism. His oeuvre bears eloquent witness to the competing artistic paradigms in the waning decades of the Age of Enlightenment. Fuseli styled himself as a painter of Dark Romanticism and «Gothic horror», and that aspect of his oeuvre is still most familiar to audiences today. Shifting the focus, the exhibition demonstrates that drama and theater were no less vital to his artistic vision: the erudite artist’s creations almost invariably draw on literary motifs, quoting ancient mythology, John Milton’s Paradise Lost, or the recently rediscovered Nibelungen saga. After his return from Rome to London in 1779, Shakespeare’s plays become another major source of motifs in his art, as his contributions to John Boydell’s Shakespeare Gallery illustrate. Drama and Theater—the title captures the interest in the themes from literary and stage works chosen by Fuseli that animates the exhibition, but it also describes his dynamic compositions and constellations of characters and the «theatrical» devices that often enliven his depictions. Like Fuseli’s art itself, Drama and Theater is hardly subtle. The artist’s seven paintings in the Öffentliche Kunstsammlung Basel, the municipal art collection of Basel, are complemented by works generously provided on loan by the Kunsthaus Zürich and other international museums and private collections. Reflecting on the conjunction of literature, theater, and visual art from another angle, Thom Luz, director at the Basler Schauspielhaus, will enhance the exhibition by bringing his contemporary theatrical practice into the gallery.

Title: The Clash of Legitimacies : The State-Building Process in Late Medieval Lombardy
Author: Gamberini, Andrea
Price: $84.00
ISBN: 9780198824312
Record created on 06/19/18
Description: Oxford: Oxford Univesity Press, 2018. 24cm., hardcover, 256pp.

Summary: The Clash of Legitimacies makes an innovative contribution to the history of the state-building process in late medieval Lombardy (during the 13th to 15th centuries), by illuminating myriad conflicts attending the legitimacy of power and authority at different levels of society. Through the analysis of the rhetorical forms and linguistic repertoires deployed by the many protagonists (not only the prince, but also the cities, communities, peasants, and political factions) to express their own ideals of shared political life, this volume reveals the depth of the conflicts in which opposing political actors were not only inspired by competing material interests--as in the traditional interpretation to be found in previous historiography--but also often were guided by differing concepts of authority. From this comes a largely new image of the late medieval and early Renaissance state, one without a monopoly of force--as has been shown in many studies since the 1970s--and one that did not even have the monopoly of legitimacy. The limitations of attempts by governors to present the political principles that inspired their acts as shared and universally recognized are revealed by a historical analysis firmly intent on investigating the existence, in particular territorial or social ambits, of other political cultures which based obedience to authority on different, and frequently original, ideals.

Cette collection se caractérisait tant par sa quantité (plus de 10 000 pièces) que par sa qualité, comptant de nombreux chefs-d’œuvre, du Sarcophage des Époux à La Bataille de Paolo Uccello et aux sculptures de Della Robbia. À travers cette collection, à nulle autre pareille, Campana mettait en lumière le patrimoine culturel italien, au moment même où émergeait l’Italie comme nation. Après ses démêlés avec la justice ponti?cale, Campana vit sa collection dispersée en 1861 entre la Russie du tsar Alexandre II et la France de Napoléon III, ce qui suscita alors une émotion profonde en Italie et en Europe. C’est ainsi que l’essentiel de la collection Campana arriva au musée du Louvre. Aujourd’hui encore, la galerie Campana, où sont exposés les vases grecs, garde le nom de cette collection qui a joué un rôle décisif dans la constitution des collections du Louvre. Ce catalogue entend donner, pour la première fois depuis sa dispersion, une vision d’ensemble de cette légendaire collection. Il présente la personnalité ?amboyante de Campana et la société dans laquelle il évolua, l’histoire de la collection, la reconstitution de salles du musée Campana à Rome, le goût du collectionneur pour les pastiches et les faux. Il met également en lumière l’in?uence immense de la collection Campana dans l’art et l’artisanat de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle

For the first time in 160 years, the exhibition will provide a comprehensive overview of the 19th century’s largest private collection, whose 10,000 exhibits—archaeological items, paintings, sculptures, and “modern” objets d’art—included such masterpieces as the Sarcophagus of the Spouses and Paolo Uccello’s Battle of San Romano. Addressing the personality and tastes of Giampietro Campana, the way he brought together this truly extraordinary ensemble, and its ultimate dispersal throughout Europe, the exhibition will also highlight the collection’s seminal role in the affirmation of Italian culture as the Italian nation gradually took shape in the course of the 19th century. Thus it will illustrate the collection’s significance in terms of cultural awareness in Italy and Europe as a whole.

Description: Bologna: Fondazione Federico Zeri, 2018. 24cm., pbk., 448pp., 15 color, 193 b&w illus.

Summary: Il volume raccoglie i contributi del seminario Girolamo Genga: una via obliqua alla maniera moderna (Bologna, Fondazione Federico Zeri | Pesaro, Villa Imperiale 30 giugno ? 2 luglio 2016). Seminario nato a conclusione di una lunga campagna di ricerche di cui si condividono qui risultati, prospettive e interrogativi. La sequenza dei 15 saggi, riflessa in un selezionato atlante di immagini, mira a rimettere a fuoco l'affascinate, autonomo e problematico percorso di Girolamo Genga (Urbino 1476?1551) nel passaggio dalla formazione, accanto a Luca Signorelli e Perugino, alla Maniera moderna. Un'evoluzione maturata, come pittore, in dialogo con i grandi modelli fiorentini, senesi e romani suoi contemporanei, da Beccafumi, a Michelangelo, a Raffaello, fino all'impegno come architetto di corte. Viene riconsiderata nel suo complesso anche la diffusione del linguaggio moderno operata da Genga in ambito architettonico, sullo sfondo della ridefinizione dei rapporti tra artista e committente nel contesto sociale e politico dell'Italia nel primo Cinquecento.

Summary: Saint Marks invokes and pluralizes the figure of Mark in order to explore relations between painting and writing. Emphasizing that the saint is not a singular biographical individual in the various biblical and hagiographic texts that involve someone so named, the book takes as its ultimate concern the kinds of material life that outlive the human subject. From the incommensurate, anachronic instances in which Saint Mark can be located—among them, as evangelist or as patron saint of Venice—the book traces Mark’s afterlives within art, sacred texts, and literature in conversation with such art historians and philosophers as Aby Warburg, Giorgio Agamben, Georges Didi-Huberman, T. J. Clark, Adrian Stokes, and Jean-Luc Nancy. Goldberg begins in sixteenth-century Venice, with a series of paintings by Gentile and Giovanni Bellini, Tintoretto, and others, that have virtually nothing to do with biblical texts. He turns then to the legacy of John Ruskin’s Stones of Venice and through it to questions about what painting does as painting. A final chapter turns to ancient texts, considering the Gospel of St. Mark together with its double, the so-called Secret Gospel that has occasioned controversy for its homoerotic implications. The posthumous persistence of a life is what the gospel named Mark calls the Kingdom of God. Saints have posthumous lives; but so too do paintings and texts. This major interdisciplinary study by one of our most astute cultural critics extends what might have been a purely theological subject to embrace questions central to cultural practice from the ancient world to the present.

Title: Art and Miracle in Renaissance Tuscany
Author: Maniura, Robert
Price: $99.99
ISBN: 9781108426848
Record created on 11/16/17
Description: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2018. 24cm., hardcover, 276pp., 59 b&w illus.

Summary: In this book, Robert Maniura explores the role and importance of the miraculous image in the art and devotional practices of Renaissance Italy. Using the records of Giuliano Guizzelmi, a Tuscan lawyer, he focuses on his stories of miracles of local shrines, including Santa Maria delle Carceri, a painting of the Virgin on a wall of the town prison, and the relic of her belt in the cathedral of Prato. Guizzelmi's stories build a powerful picture of the visual culture of the period, involving images that were kissed, worn and applied to sick bodies in rituals of healing. They also place his devotional activity in the context of his everyday life. Moreover, the paintings of Guizzelmi's burial chapel also engage with contemporary pictorial conventions and show how his concerns can inform our understanding of contemporary art, notably the works of his late fifteenth-century contemporaries, Ghirlandaio, Perugino and Filippino Lippi.

Contents: 1. Giuliano Guizzelmi: A Lawyer of Prato. 2. The Guizzelmi Chapel, the Large Crucifix and the Eucharist. 3. The Relic of the Virgin: the Holy Girdle. 4. The Miraculous Image of the Virgin: Santa Maria delle Carceri. 5. Guizzelmi's Miracles: Badges and Prints. 6. Votive Offerings: Making Oneself in Wax. 7. Making Miracles.

Title: Vesperbild : Alle origini della Pietà di MICHELANGELO
Author: Mazzotta, Antonio
Price: $45.00
ISBN: 9788833670089
Record created on 06/13/18
Description: Milano: Officina Libraria, 2018. 27cm., hardcover, 1444pp., 80 color illus. Exhibition held at Castello Sforzesco, Milano.

Summary: La parola tedesca 'Vesperbild' significa letteralmente immagine del Vespro e rievoca il momento in cui il corpo di Cristo, deposto dalla croce, è in attesa di sepoltura. L'iconografia del Cristo morto sul grembo di Maria ha iniziato ad essere rappresentata nelle sculture lignee della valle del Reno d'inizio Trecento. I motivi e le conseguenze della diffusione di questa iconografia in territorio italiano, a partire dalla metà del secolo e fino ad arrivare al suo esito più classico e celebre, la Pietà di Michelangelo, sono al centro della ricerca di questa mostra al Castello Sforzesco di Milano. Partendo dai primi esempi nordici e attraverso l'analisi di opere di grandi artisti italiani come Francesco Del Cossa, Ercole de' Roberti, Giovanni Bellini, Carpaccio, Perugino, vengono illustrati i diversi snodi e gradi dello sviluppo storico-geografico di quest'iconografia fino ad arrivare, appunto, all'interpretazione di Michelangelo, destinata a condizionare la percezione del tema nei secoli a venire: la Pietà vaticana. Ma verso la fine della sua vita, il Buonarroti tornerà sul tema recuperando la cifra emotiva ed espressiva dei primi Vesperbilder tedeschi: la sua Pietà Rondanini, esposta nelle sale dell'Antico Ospedale Spagnolo adiacenti alla mostra, incarna chiaramente questo desiderio di tornare alle origini più antiche di questa rappresentazione. Il catalogo, riccamente illustrato, sarà caratterizzato da un ampio saggio di Antonio Mazzotta e Agostino Allegri che ripercorre la storia di questa iconografia e di tutte le sue diverse declinazioni e rappresenta il primo studio, ampio e comprensivo, in lingua italiana su questo tema.

Title: Hampshire : South
Author: O'Brien, Charles (et al)

ISBN: 9780300225037
Record created on 03/19/18
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, 2018. 23cm., hardcover, 800pp., 120 color, 80 b&w illus.

Summary: This volume, a companion to Hampshire: Winchester and the North, covers the county’s southern half, from the woodland and heath of the New Forest to the cities along the Solent, and from remote Saxon churches to Modernist seaside villas. The original text has been fully revised to include new research and 130 specially commissioned color photographs. The guide explores major ecclesiastical monuments at Romsey, the Bishop of Winchester’s palace at Bishops Waltham, and the remains of the great post-Dissolution houses at Beaulieu and Titchfield. At Southampton is one of England’s best preserved medieval town walls, while at Portsmouth the structures of the 18th- and 19th-century Royal Navy dockyard are among the most important of their kind. Amid all this beauty are traces of conflict, from the Roman fort at Portchester, to the coastal castles of Henry VIII’s rule, to the relics of the Normandy invasions of 1944.

Title: RACHEL ROSE : Wil-o-Wisp : The Future Fields Commission in Time-Based Media
Author: Battle, Erica F. (ed)
Price: $20.00
ISBN: 9780300238716
Record created on 03/13/18
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, in association with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2018. 24cm., pbk., 80pp., 50 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Presenting an ambitious new project by Rachel Rose (b. 1986) commissioned jointly by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, this book offers a rare behind-the-scenes perspective on one of the most striking emerging voices in contemporary art. In the commissioned work, titled Wil-o-Wisp, Rose created a fictional narrative set within 16th-century agrarian England. Following a healer through a cyclical sequence of her life—marked equally by love and loss, the practice of magic and the consequence of persecution—the work ruminates on the ways that perception and coincidence affect our position and fate in the world. This intimate look into Rose’s creative process highlights the artist’s interest in storytelling, scene-setting, and visual effects by including storyboards, production stills, script excerpts, and on-set photography. In addition, an interview in which Rose discusses the core concepts behind this new work and how its focus and meaning transmuted as it developed offers a revelatory firsthand account of how the commission evolved from conception to realization.

Title: Seen from Behind: Perpsectives on the Male Body and Renaissance Art
Author: Rubin, Patricia Lee
Price: $60.00
ISBN: 9780300236552
Record created on 02/18/18
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 288pp., 263 illus.

Summary: Renaissance bodies, dressed and undressed, have not lacked attention in art historical literature, but scholarship on the male body has generally concentrated on phallic-oriented masculinity and been connected to issues of patriarchy and power. This original book examines the range of meaning that has been attached to the male backside in Renaissance art and culture, the transformation of the base connotation of the image to high art, and the question of homoerotic impulses or implications of admiring male figures from behind. Representations of the male body’s behind have often been associated with things obscene, carnivalesque, comical, or villainous. Presenting serious scholarship with a deft hand, Seen from Behind expands our understanding of the motif of the male buttocks in Renaissance art, revealing both continuities and changes in the ways the images convey meaning and have been given meaning.

Summary: Pietro Aretino and Titian were compari. Titian designed author portraits for Pietro, five known painted portraits and two in narrative paintings. All were done in particular situations with intentions varying greatly in purpose and complexity. This study reconstructs these contexts as fully as possible, showing how they determine the concept of each portrait and enhance appreciation of Titian's artistry in revealing different aspects of Aretino's personality and character. After considering the author portraits, the study examines their relationship with Alfonso d' Avalos, who is featured with Aretino in both istorie, The Allocution and the Ecce Homo, in which Pietro appears as Pilate defending Christ. The earliest surviving independent portrait, 1538, represents Aretino as a divinely inspired writer. The 1545 portrait, conceived as one of a pair commemorating his condottiero friend Giovanni de' Medici, has the most complicated context. It was delayed by loss of Giovani's death mask, Titian's failure to do Giovanni's portrait, and further when Pietro's portrait was hidden from the recipient Cosimo I de' Medici. The study concludes with an assessment of their friendship. (Biblioteca dell' "Archivum Romanicum" Serie I: Storia, Letteratura, Paleografia, 484)

Title: ANDREA VESALIUS and the 'Fabrica' : Art, Anatomy, and Printing in the Italian Renaissance
Author: Canalis, Rinaldo Fernando ; Massimo Ciavolella (eds)
Price: $138.00
ISBN: 9782503576237
Record created on 10/17/17
Description: Turnhout: Brepols, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 335pp., 73 color, 20 b&w illus.

Summary: Andreas Vesalius's fame derive from his writing of what is perhaps the most famous book in the history of medical science, De humanis corporis fabrica (1543), a treatise that within a few years transformed the imperfect art of anatomy into a modern science. This extraordinary work, however, came into being not just because of its author's genius and industry, but for other reasons that remain (despite a vast body of scholarship) inadequately explored. These questions, the historical moment from which they stem, and the setting in which Vesalius produced the Fabrica, form the core of this volume. Some of these significant factors include the short time during which De fabrica was produced, the debated authorship of its illustrations, and its immediate and subsequent impact on the teaching of anatomy. The book's significance within the context of present day views of its historical value, and the ever increasing fascination it evokes among scholars and collectors alike, are also examined
