Description: Paris: Gallimard, Fondation Louis Vuitton, 2016. 30cm., hardcover, 478pp. prof. illus. Exhibition catalogue. English text (cover shown is French edition).

Summary: The exhibition pays tribute to one of the greatest Art patron of the early 20th century, Serguei Shchukin, the visionary Russian collector of French modern art. From the end of the 19th century, Serguei Shchukin, the important muscovite industrialist, began to integrate himself into the Parisian arts milieu of the era, which tasked itself with defending the impressionist, post-impressionist and modern movements. Shchukin forged relationships with modern art dealers Paul Durand-Ruel, Berthe Weill, Ambroise Vollard, Georges Bernheim and Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, and celebrated artists Monet and Matisse. These friendships heavily influenced the formation of his collection, which remains one of the most radical art collections of its time. This catalogue showcases the collection and delves into its cultural background and the part it played in the world of art throughout the period ranging from 1890 to 1914. It encompasses large reproductions of the 160 exhibited pieces as well as a general overview of Shchukin's collection (278 pieces) along with historical facts and descriptions. A chronology of Shchukin's life and times and an anthology of theoretical and critical writings shed light on the way the collection was perceived in Russia. In order to contextualise the presentation of the works, large leaflets reproducing photographs of Troubetskoi palace - where the works were exhibited - were added to the book.

Description: London: British Library, distributed by University of Chicago Press, 2010. 30cm., hardcover, 184pp. prof. illus., most in color.

Summary : The Lindisfarne Gospels, written and illuminated at the beginning of the eighth century, is one of the most outstanding masterpieces of early medieval European book painting. It was the creation of just one person, Eadfrith, who was Bishop of Lindisfarne, and is a precious testament to the tenacity of Christian belief during one of the most turbulent periods of British history. Costly in time and materials and superb in design, the manuscript is an artistic and religious world treasure. Although written in Latin, the manuscript also contains the oldest surviving translation of the Gospels into English, added to the manuscript around 970 AD. “The Lindisfarne Gospels” and the Early Medieval World brings together historical, archaeological, paleographical, and theological perspectives to explore and understand the full significance of this magnificent undertaking. Lavishly illustrated with full-page colour reproductions of the essential pages of The Lindisfarne Gospels and incorporating new research on relations between the British Isles, continental Europe and the Near East during the early Middle Ages, this book is a fantastic resource that celebrates both the beauty and the historical significance of the original manuscript.

Description: Zaragoza: Institución Fernando el Católico, 2012. 24cm., pbk., 683pp. illus., plus CD-Rom. Summary: La eclosión de la Edad Moderna y, sobre todo, la celebración del Concilio de Trento (1545-1563) supusieron cambios importantes en los usos fundacionales de nuevos conventos. Las resoluciones tridentinas llegaron a Tarazona en los últimos días de octubre de 1564, aunque no será hasta los episcopados de Pedro Cerbuna (1585-1597) y Fr. Diego de Yepes (1599-1613) cuando realmente se aplicarán sus preceptos. El presente libro analiza el origen histórico y estudia las manifestaciones artísticas de los cinco establecimientos religiosos contrarreformistas de la ciudad de Tarazona pretenecientes a la Orden Capuchina, a la Compañía de Jesús y a la del Carmen descalzo, esta última con dos clausuras y un convento masculino.

Description: Terni: Fondazione Cassa di risparmio di Terni e Narni, 2011. 31cm., hardcover, 283pp. prof. illus., most in color. From the publisher's website: Il palazzo venne eretto da Aurelio Fazioli nel lontano 1584, come ricorda anche l’iscrizione posta sul portale dell’originario accesso su via Silvestri, già piazza Canale. Successivamente ai Fazioli, tra il 1654 e la seconda metà del XIX secolo, il palazzo divenne proprietà di altre quattro importanti famiglie di estrazione nobiliare e borghese, i Guglielmetti, i Genuini, i Viviani e i Montani Leoni per poi passare, nel 1873, al Comune di Terni, che lo espropriò e che nel 1877 lo vendette alla Cassa di Risparmio di Terni. Dal 1992 è residenza della Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Terni e Narni, che ne occupa il piano nobile ed il secondo piano. Fino ad oggi solo brevi cenni in alcune pubblicazioni sono stati dedicati al nostro palazzo e per lo più relativi al periodo tardo ottocentesco del “taglio” di corso Tacito. Mancava, pertanto, una storia completa sulla vita dell’edificio, in particolare per il periodo tra il XVI e il XVIII secolo.

Description: Copenhagen-Skagen: Hirschsprung Collection, Skagens Museum, 2011. 30cm., hardcover, 367pp. illus., most in color. English text. Exhibition catalogue. Summary: P.S. Krøyer is one of the most significant artists of the nineteenth century, and in his time he occupied a natural position among the international artistic elite. Krøyer’s art is normally viewed in the context of the Skagen painters, and as a part of the ‘modern breakthrough’ in Danish art. But Krøyer was a cosmopolitan, and in this catalogue his art is approached from a new angle and his art is placed in a wider European context – in an international perspective. The catalogue contains a wide range of articles focusing on P.S. Krøyer's art in an international context. After the articles follows the catalogue section that is divided into 16 sections. Here, the approx. 140 works on display are presented with information about the substantial literature, provenance and as something quite new interesting information about the exhibition history of the works of art and information about how the works were received by the international critics. The last part of the catalogue contains a chronology of Krøyer's life and activities, an exhibition history of the numerous exhibitions that Krøyer attended and a bibliography.

Description: Firenzes: Giunti, 2012. 28cm., pbk., 528pp. prof. illus. (Benozzo Gozzoli, Pier Matteo DAmelia, Antoniazzo Romano, Pierantonio Mezzastris et al) Summary: Da decenni la Regione Umbria ha intrapreso la sistematica catalogazione dei beni culturali, per acquisire le conoscenze necessarie al miglior esercizio tanto delle funzioni espressamente inerenti ai musei di enti locali e di interesse locale, quanto di quelle per l'urbanistica e l'assetto del territorio, le attività culturali, il turismo, il diritto allo studio, la formazione professionale. L'indagine si rivolge, dunque, non solo ai beni custoditi nei musei ma a tutto il patrimonio culturale umbro direttamente e indirettamente interessato dall'opera delle autonomie locali. Questa attività della Regione è all'origine della presente collana di volumi. Con essa si intende proporre in maniera sistematica, agli studiosi e al pubblico dei lettori, il frutto di un impegno che mira alla salvaguardia e alla conoscenza di un patrimonio insostituibile per l'Umbria e per l'intero Paese.

Description: Siena: Betti, 2013. 25cm., pbk., 226pp. illus. Summary: Questo volume nasce dall’idea di fra Antonio M. Pacini, già Priore del convento senese dell’Ordine dei Servi di Maria, di far conoscere la chiesa della Certosa di Maggiano dove una volta officiava. Un progetto da subito condiviso con Don Brunetto Sartini che non ha voluto lasciarsi scappare l’occasione di raccontare anche la “sua” Certosa, quella di Pontignano, la cui parte ancora adibita ad edificio di culto è compresa nella sua parrocchia. Introducendo alla storia e allo stile di vita dell’ordine certosino, queste pagine vogliono dare una risposta al perché l’ordine abbia scelto proprio queste terre per la costruzione di ben tre monasteri, illustrando parallelamente la vicenda figurativa di questi monumenti sacri con una ricca raccolta di immagini e una descrizione organica dei cicli pittorici.

Description: Milano: Skira, 2015. 29cm., hardcover, 256pp., 120 color illus. Exhibition held at Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Bergamo. Summary: Nonostante all’altissima arte di Jacopo Negretti, detto Palma il Vecchio (1480 circa -1528) siano stati dedicati numerosi studi monografici – dai primi interventi di Fornoni (1886) e Locatelli (1890) all’ultimo di Philip Rylands (1988) – l’artista non è mai stato celebrato con una mostra monografica. Pubblicata in occasione di EXPO 2015, questa monografia presenta per la prima volta riuniti i capolavori del grande artista rinascimentale, provenienti dai principali musei in Italia e all’estero. Palma è maestro nel dare vita a languide figure femminili che ne segnano il percorso e la carriera divenendo così il grande interprete di una bellezza femminile, tratteggiata con immediata sensualità, che darà vita all’ideale della proporzione femminile del Rinascimento maturo. Egli esegue opere che vengono presto idealizzate e ricercate dai collezionisti, tanto da creare un vero e proprio mito dell’artista. Un’arte, la sua, che sviluppa temi mitologici e allegorici, ma anche sacre conversazioni in straordinarie ambientazioni paesaggistiche. Quella di Palma è una poesia fatta di sguardi, racconti, nostalgia, scoperte e aperture con immancabili rimandi ai luoghi natii: una raffigurazione della spettacolosa bellezza del visibile ancora oggi apprezzabile nella spettacolare marca bergamasca.

Description: Viterbo: BetaGamma, 2015. 25cm.,pbk., 312pp. illus.

Summary: In due sezioni la pubblicazione ripercorre gli avvenimenti storici che si rincorrono in meno di vent’anni, dalla Repubblica Cisalpina al Regno d’Italia, con lo sguardo puntato su Monza, la villa e la vita in città e a corte. Un aiuto prezioso arriva da documenti provenienti dall’Archivio storico comunale e dall’archivio della Repubblica Cisalpina conservato in biblioteca civica. “Il giornale delle novità”, del monzese Domenico Burocco, ci restituisce una cronaca diretta dell’ingresso dei francesi nel 1796. Allo stesso modo “Gli annali di Monza” di Antonio Sirtori,relativi al periodo 1805-1814, raccontano la vita in città e a corte in quel decennio. Di grande interesse l’inedito inventario mobiliare del 1810, trovato a Parigi che restituisce una fotografia della trasformazione della villa in residenza reale. Il focus centrale del volume, curato da Marina Rosa, accompagna invece il lettore negli spazi della villa per descrivere l’apparato decorativo delle stanze principali e svelare gli ambienti, il mobilio prima delle importanti trasformazioni del periodo sabaudo.

Bankers, Botticelli and the Bonfire of the Vanities'' recounts the birth of our modern banking system and of the economic boom that it triggered, providing a reconstruction of European life and the continent's economy from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Visitors can delve into the daily life of the families that controlled the banking system and perceive the ongoing clash between spiritual and economic values that was such a feature of it. The saga of the art patrons is closely linked to that of the bankers who financed the ventures of princes and nobles alike, and indeed it was that very convergence that provided the humus in which some of the leading artists of all time were able to flourish. The exhibition takes the visitor on a journey to the roots of Florentine power in Europe, but it also explores the economic mechanisms which allowed the Florentines to dominate the world of trade and business 500 years before modern communication methods were invented, and in so doing, to finance the Renaissance.

Description: Milano: Silvana, 2010. 27cm., pbk., 159pp., 40 color plates. French text. Exhibition held at Médiathèque d’Albi. Summary: Ami des plus grands humanistes, savant en littérature, diplomate opportuniste serviteur tour à tour du duc de Bourgogne, des papes Nicolas V et Pie II, puis du roi Louis XI, mais aussi condottiere à la fin de sa vie, le cardinal Jean Jouffroy (1412-1473), évêque d'Albi, fut l'un des plus ardents bibliophiles de la fin du Moyen Âge. Amateur d'art éclairé, il a introduit dès le milieu du XVe siècle dans une France encore attachée à l'art gothique le goût raffiné de la Renaissance italienne. Il a collecté de manière insatiable les textes les plus antiques, collectionné les manuscrits enluminés les plus somptueux, offert en présent les ouvrages les plus luxueux aux grands de ce monde, faisant travailler des copistes, relieurs et enlumineurs renommés à Rome ou Florence, ayant finalement constitué l'une des plus riches collections privées de son temps, dispersée aujourd'hui dans les bibliothèques publiques les plus prestigieuses. L'exposition organisée par la bibliothèque d'Albi présentera pour la première fois les plus belles pièces de cette collection, parmi lesquelles les manuscrits offerts au roi Louis XI, prêtés par la Bibliothèque nationale de France, et des manuscrits florentins exceptionnellement prêtés par la Bibliothèque apostolique vaticane. Exposition et catalogue décrivent les grandes étapes de la vie fort bien remplie de Jean Jouffroy et son héritage artistique, les autres démontrent ses goûts de collectionneur et ses choix avertis de bibliophile.

Title: Traits of tolerance : Religious Tolerance in the Golden Age
Author: van Eck, Xander ; Ruud Priem (eds)
Price: $37.50
ISBN: 9789066306745
Record created on 09/15/2013
Description: Zwolle: W Books, Museum Het Catharijneconvent Utrecht, 2013. 24cm., hardcover, 96pp., 50 color plates. English text. Exhibition catalogue. Contents: A Reluctant Tolerance? ; Word over Image ; Painting and Religious Toleration in the Golden Age ; Toleration and Accommodation in the Netherlands Today. From the introduction: The image of the Netherlands as a tolerant nation originated in the early years of the Dutch Republic. Foreigners who visited the country at the beginning of the seventeenth century expressed their surprise at the religious diversity of society and the nonchalance with which people with divergent views were accepted. The French immigrant Jean- François LePetit wrote about Amsterdam, as early as 1616, that the Dutch 'receive and welcome people from diverse nations, who may freely reside there, without any religious scrutiny: French, German, English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Scottish, Danish ... indeed, there are even Turks and Jews.' It is an image that corresponds closely to the self-image that the Dutch have built up over the centuries. But is it true? Is tolerance an innate characteristic of the Dutch, or was it created in response to certain historical conditions? Does the religious toleration that existed in the seventeenth century correspond to the definition of tolerance that we use today? This book deals with these and many other questions relating to religious tolerance and intolerance in the Netherlands of the Golden Age, and will naturally also look at the relevance of this history to the present-day world.

Title: The Portugese Synagogue in Amsterdam
Author: Vlaardingerbroek, Pieter (ed)
Price: $85.00
ISBN: 9789040007989
Record created on 02/05/2013
Description: Zwolle: WBooks, 2013. 28cm., hardcover, 207pp., 192 illus., many in color. English text. Summary: The Portuguese Synagoge, or Snoge, was the largest Sephardi synagogue in the world when it was built, between 1671 and 1675. The fact that Amsterdam's Sephardim were permitted to erect this grand structure attests to the relative freedom of Jews in this part of Western Europe, at a time when Jews elsewhere were confined to ghettos and subject to restrictions. Through the centuries, foreign tourist have been amazed by the beauty and scale of the complex. The present volume examines many aspects of this glorious synagogue, which has been preserverd almost perfectly in its seventeenth-century state.
