Description: New Haven: Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in association with Yale University Press, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 256pp., 150 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Characterized by highly structured, geometric compositions with smooth surfaces, linear qualities, and lucid forms, Precisionism fully emerged after World War I and flourished in the 1920s and 1930s. This insightful publication, featuring more than 100 masterworks by artists such as Charles Sheeler, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Charles Demuth, sheds new light on the Precisionism aesthetic and the intellectual concerns, tensions, and ambivalences about industrialization that helped develop this important strand of early American modernism. Essays explore the origins of the style—which reconciled realism with abstraction and adapted European art movements like Purism, Cubism, and Futurism to American subject matter—as well as its relationship to photography, and the ways in which it reflected the economic and social changes brought about by industrialization and technology in the post-World War I world. In addition to making a meaningful contribution to the resurging interest in Modernism and its revisionist narratives, this book offers copious connections between the past and our present day, poised on the verge of a fourth industrial revolution.

Description: Venice: Marsilio, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 280pp., 100 color illus. Italian-English text.

Summary: Three artists have been selected to represent Italy at the 2017 Venice Biennale: Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Roberto Cuoghi, and Adelita Husni-Bey. They are relatively young artists, belonging to the same generation as the curator, and have been present on the international art scene since the year 2000. Their works speak global languages but are closely linked to the culture of Italy, without overlooking its current cosmopolitan aspect. Giorgio Andreotta Calò focuses on dialogues between space and artistic action, Roberto Cuoghi—the best known of the three—carries out research into memory and time, and Adelita Husni-Bey involves the public in artistic practices connected with history and social issues.

Description: London: Holberton, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 250pp., 125 color illus. Exhibition to be held at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston.

Summary: Fra Angelico transformed painting in Florence with his pioneering images. Reuniting for the first time his four ingenious reliquaries for Santa Maria Novella, this publication explores his celebrated talents as a storyteller and the artistic contributions that shaped a new ideal of painting. Accompanying the exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, this catalogue explores one of the most important artists of the Renaissance. Fra Angelico (c. 1395–1455) transformed painting in Florence with pioneering images, rethinking popular compositions and investing traditional Christian subjects with new meaning. His altarpieces and frescoes set new standards for quality and ingenuity, contributing to Angelico’s unparalleled fame on the Italian peninsula. With the intellect of a Dominican theologian, the technical facility of Florence’s finest craftsmen and the business acumen of its shrewdest merchants, he shaped the future of painting in Italy and beyond. The exhibition reunites for the first time Fra Angelico’s four reliquaries for Santa Maria Novella (1424-34; Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Museo di San Marco, Florence). Together they cover key episodes in the life of the Virgin Mary and capture in miniature some of his most important compositional innovations. Assembled at the Gardner with exceptional examples of Angelico’s narrative paintings from collections in Europe and the United States, this exhibition explores his celebrated talents as a storyteller and the artistic contributions that shaped a new ideal of painting in Florence.

Summary: Le musée du Temps organisera cet automne une exposition sur le cardinal Antoine de Granvelle (1517 - 1586) à l'occasion de la célébration des cinq cents de sa naissance. Les images de ce grand diplomate au service de Philippe II d'Espagne ont circulé dans toute l'Europe à la Renaissance. Elles permettent d'aborder les évènements qui ont secoué l'Empire des Habsbourg au XVIe siècle mais aussi la postérité de ce personnage de premier plan natif de Besançon. Cette exposition qui bénéficie de prêts nationaux (Bibliothèque Nationale de France) et internationaux (Rijksmuseum d'Amnsterdam, Bibliothèque de l'université catholique de Louvain, musée royaux de Bruxelles) rassemble des oeuvres graphiques, des peintures et des sculptures comme Titien, Scipione Pulzone, Antonio Moro, Willem Key, Jean Petit, Georges- Philippe Clésinger.

Description: Livorno: Sillabe, 2017. 28cm.,pbk., 328pp., 180 color illus. Exhibition held at Palazzo Pitti, Firenze. Italian text.

Summary: The precious items in the Tesoro dei Granduchi include a number of 18th century moulds of the now lost “St. John’s plates”, a nostalgic echo of masterpieces of the Roman silversmith’s art in the age of the Baroque. The fifty-eight magnificent silver ewers were intended as a gift for Grand Duke Cosimo III (1642–1723) and, after him, for Gian Gastone (1671–1737), his successor on the throne of Tuscany. One ewer was presented every year on 24 June, the feast of St. John, from 1680 until the Medici dynasty became extinct in 1737. The silver ewers, weighing some fifteen pounds (or five kg.) and worth 300 Roman scudi each, were meticulously embossed and chased with scenes celebrating the most illustrious members of the House of Medici from Lorenzo the Magnificent down to the reigning Grand Dukes. It was probably the fact that the ewers depicted the unusual subject of her family’s history that prompted the Electress Palatine Anna Maria Luisa (1667–1743) to do everything in her power to safeguard them from the threat of destruction at the hands of the House of Lorraine, who succeeded the Medici on the throne of Tuscany and whose military expenditure meant that they were regularly strapped for cash. The ewers were jealously guarded in the Wardrobe in Palazzo Vecchio, leaving the premises only from 1789 to 1791 for display in the “Medal Room” in the Galleria degli Uffizi. Sent back to the Wardrobe as their popularity declined, they set off down the path to oblivion. It is only thanks to casts commissioned by the Marchese Carlo Ginori and made in his Manufactory in Doccia between 1746 and 1748 that we can appreciate at least a pale reflection of their splendour today.

Summary: Beverly Barkat’s painting is rooted in a profound and ongoing dialogue with art history. Her study and observation of the figurative and realistic tradition in Western art has resulted in her accumulating a body of knowledge that she draws on directly in her artistic practice. To achieve her aim of capturing the essence of the body in motion, Barkat has begun working on a large scale, using broad gestures that recall action painting. The best of her production, together with her latest works (large-scale painted PVC sheets), is illustrated in this book, her first.

Title: Von Spitzweg zu Sisi : Kunst und Kunsthandwerk des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die Sammlung Friedrich Werner Ott
Author: Batz, Karl
Price: $65.00
ISBN: 9783897905030
Record created on 07/20/2017
Description: Stuttgart: Arnoldsche Verlag, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 296pp., 288 color illus. Exhibition held at Stadtmuseum Ingolstadt. German text.

Summary: In the Biedermeier scenes and idylls of the early works by Carl Spitzweg (1808–1885), odd misfits, soldiers, monks and maids are all featured in the middle-class provincial milieu of the time. Informed by a free painting style, however, the landscapes of his late works anticipate Impressionism. Comprising 430 objects, the Werner Friedrich Ott Collection in the Stadtmuseum Ingolstadt includes, alongside paintings and drawings by the famous artist, an extensive Historicist collection of arts-and-crafts objects. In a time when political, economic and social relations in Europe underwent complete change, the nobility and an increasingly stronger middle class often drew upon the authoritative symbolism used to establish their identity of earlier times. They placed great value on the exquisite handcrafted work and most luxurious materials of their goblets, pitchers, services and jewellery items. Particularly coveted were objects furnished with dedications from prominent personages, such as Empress Elisabeth ‘Sisi’ of Austria.

Description: Berlin: Sternberg Press, 2017. 26cm., hardcover, 208pp. illus. Exhibition held at Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge.

Summary: Martin Beck’s exhibition “Program” at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts comprised a sequence of interventions, installations, events, and displays that drew on the exhibition histories and academic pursuits of the famed 1963 Le Corbusier building at Harvard University. The sequence of explorative strategies—each node of which Beck considered an “episode”—lent particular attention to the founding aspirations of the Carpenter Center, which sought to cultivate its position as simultaneously an iconic modernist building, school, and exhibition venue. Beck performed and critically reflected on the kinds of activity an institution uses to build, organize, and engage with its audiences, and, in the case of the Carpenter Center, how it performed a kind of exhibition of education in both its pedagogical framework and its public outreach. From its physical infrastructure to its communication strategies, from its foundational curricular principles to visitor tallies, from building usage to welcome rituals, “Program,” which transpired over two years, examined institutional behaviors that collectively form institutional identity and integrate audiences into a cohesive program of public address. This book, An Organized System of Instructions, is both a document of “Program” and an extension of the exhibition, which ran from October 24, 2014, to October 2016.

Title: Artige Kunst : Kunst und Politik im Nationalsozialismus. Compliant Art : Art and Politics in the National Socialist era

Description: Bielefeld: Kerber, 2016. 28cm., pbk., 240pp., 95 color illus. German-English text. Exhibition held at Museum unter Tage, Bochum

Summary: The art of the avant-garde, the “degenerate art,” combated by the National Socialists has been widely researched and exhibited to the public in recent decades. The conformist, “good” art aligned with National Socialist ideology, in contrast, silently disappeared into warehouses after 1945. Art was supposed to stabilize the system, hearten in difficult times, and communicate values such as a fighting spirit, family, and tradition. The publication knowledgeably shows that the artworks did truly completely lack any critical potential or humanist aspirations. It also documents the inner conflict of the time and juxtaposes works that conformed to the regime with those by critical, persecuted artists. The important question of what happened to the “good” artists after the end of the war is also addressed.

Description: Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2017. 27cm., hardcover, 224pp., 137 color illus. Exhibition held at Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University.

Summary: In his own lifetime, William Blake (1757-1827) was a relatively unknown nonconventional artist with a strong political bent. William Blake and the Age of Aquarius is a beautifully illustrated look at how, some two hundred years after his birth, the antiestablishment values embodied in Blake's art and poetry became a model for artists of the American counterculture. This book provides new insights into the politics and protests of Blake's own lifetime, and the generation of artists who revived and reimagined his work in the mid-1940s through 1970, or what might be called the "long sixties." Contributors explore Blake's outsider status in Georgian England and how his individualistic vision spoke to members of the Beat Generation, hippies, radical poets and writers, and other voices of the counterculture. Among the artists, musicians, and writers who looked to Blake were such diverse figures as Diane Arbus, Jay DeFeo, the Doors, Sam Francis, Allen Ginsberg, Jess, Agnes Martin, Ad Reinhardt, Charles Seliger, Maurice Sendak, Robert Smithson, Clyfford Still, and many others. This book also explores visual cultures around such galvanizing moments of the 1960s as Woodstock and the Summer of Love. William Blake and the Age of Aquarius shows how Blake's myths, visions, and radicalism found new life among American artists who valued individualism and creativity, explored expanded consciousness, and celebrated youth, peace, and the power of love in a turbulent age.

Description: Zwolle: W Books, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 272pp. illus. Exhibition to be held at Rembrandt House Museum, Amsterdam. English text

Summary: This book presents sixteen essays exploring the work of two of 17th-century Amsterdam's most ambitious painters, Govert Flinck and Ferdinand Bol. Museum curators, academic art historians, and conservation scientists from six different countries come together to investigate form, content, and context from a variety of perspectives. Eric Jan Slujter examines how changing patterns of patronage contributed to both artists' stylistic evolution. Hilbert Lootsma traces the rise and fall of their critical fortunes from their own time until today. Ann Jensen Adams situates their work in the shifting market for portraiture. Jasper Hillegers explores the origins of Flinck's career in the Leeuwarden studio of Lambert Jacobsz. Other authors present contextual and technical analyzes of individual paintings. Portrait identities are revealed, painterly tricks uncovered, and both artists are shown to be influential teachers and members of an intellectual community in which art and theater were closely linked. Many of these essays originated at an international conference held in preparation for the exhibition, Govert Flinck and Ferdinand Bol. Together, they shed new light on the methods and motivations of two artists who began as Rembrandt's acolytes but soon became his rivals.

Description: Ferrara: Ferrara Arte, 2017. 28cm., pbk., illus. Exhibition held at Palazzo dei Diamanti, Ferrara.

Summary: Per secoli Bononi, come del resto l’intero Seicento ferrarese, è rimasto in ombra, offuscato dal ricordo della magica stagione rinascimentale della Ferrara degli Este. Una lenta operazione di recupero critico ha progressivamente messo a fuoco la figura di un artista unico che seppe interpretare in modo sublime e intimamente partecipato la tensione religiosa del suo tempo. Pittore di scene mitologiche nonché di grandi cicli decorativi sacri e di pale d’altare, Bononi elabora un linguaggio pittorico che pone al centro l’emozione, il rapporto intimo e sentimentale tra le figure dipinte e l’osservatore. Negli anni drammatici dei contrasti religiosi, dei terremoti e delle pestilenze, il sapiente uso della luce e il magistrale ricorso alla teatralità fanno di lui uno dei primi pittori barocchi della penisola, come testimoniano le seducenti decorazioni di Santa Maria in Vado del 1617 circa. Ma Bononi fu anche un grande naturalista: nelle sue opere il sacro dialoga con il quotidiano. Tele come il Miracolo di Soriano o l’Angelo custode mostrano quanto acuta fosse per l’artista la necessità di calare il racconto sacro nella realtà, incarnando santi e madonne in persone reali e concretamente riconoscibili. In questa prospettiva, pochi come lui hanno saputo coniugare il nudo maschile con le esigenze rappresentative dell’Italia ancora controriformista di inizio Seicento: i suoi martiri e i suoi santi sono dipinti con perfezione potente e, al contempo, suadente, ma senza alcun gusto voyeuristico.

Description: Köln: Walther König, 2017. 30cm., hardcover, 136pp. illus., most in color. Exhibition held at Gemeentemuseum, The Hague. English text.

Summary: Since the 1960s, American artist Lee Bontecou has been internationally praised for her intriguing sculptures and installations. The rich, organic shapes of her sculptures seem to originate from a mysterious universe in which man?s fears and desires are condensed. Recently the artist created Sandbox, a new installation in which she combines elements from her work from the 1960s to the present. A picture essay by Joan Banach, artist and friend of Bontecou, focuses on the genesis of Sandbox and maps the rich network of Bontecou?s inspirations: pictures range from extracts from geological and historical books to images of works by old masters. The beautiful, detailed photographs were taken at the artist?s studio. This publication also shows Bontecou?s sketchbooks and the inspirational ?wall of drawings? in her studio. This book is an intimate insight into the creative process of the artist.

Description: Zwolle: Waaanders, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 144pp., 130 color illus. Exhibition held at Mauritshuis, The Hague.

Summary: Better a good neighbour than a distant friend, so the saying goes. During the autumn of 2017, the Mauritshuis tells the story of Flemish portraiture using a selection of the best Flemish portraits from the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp (KMSKA). In the Southern Netherlands (now Belgium), the art of portrait painting came into full bloom during the period from 1400 to 1700. During these three centuries, noblemen and wealthy citizens had themselves immortalised by the best Flemish artists of their time. These portraits remain very impressive due to the outstanding way in which the sitters’ facial features and the character were memorialised in paint. The exhibition includes major works by Rogier van der Weyden, Hans Memling, Pieter Pourbus, Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck. Remarkably, almost all the sitters can be identified. This is why the exhibition will not only highlight what makes Flemish portraits so special, but also who appears in the pictures and how they wanted to be viewed.

Description: Worcester: Worcester Art Museum, 2017. 29cm., hardcover, 128pp., 130 images. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: This book presents a photographic narrative of African American and Native American migration and resettlement in the aftermath of Emancipation and Reconstruction. Taken between 1897 and 1917 by itinerant photographer William Bullard of Worcester, Massachusetts, these photographs address larger themes involving race in American history, many of which remain relevant today: the story of people of color claiming their rightful place in society and creating a community in new surroundings. William Bullard’s heretofore unpublished collection of more than 230 glass negatives presenting the African American and Nipmuc communities of Worcester, Massachusetts, at the turn of the century provides an exceptional opportunity to significantly deepen our understanding of the use of photography at a political and personal level. Unlike most extant photographic collections of black Americans taken in this period, the subjects in Bullard’s photographs are identified in his logbook, allowing this book to tell specific stories about individuals and re-create a more accurate historical context.

Summary: The accompanying catalog for the New Museum's exhibition Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon investigates gender’s place in contemporary art and culture today, putting special emphasis on our moment of political upheaval and renewed culture wars. The exhibition features over 40 artists working across a variety of mediums and genres, including film, video, performance, painting and sculpture. Many embrace explicit pleasure and visual lushness as political strategies, and some deliberately reject or complicate overt representation, turning to poetic language, docufiction and abstraction to affirm ambiguities and reflect shifting physical embodiment. Among the artists included are Morgan Bassichis, Nayland Blake, Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Vaginal Davis, ektor garcia, House of Ladosha, Candice Lin, Christina Quarles, Tschabalala Self, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Sable Elyse Smith and Wu Tsang.

Summary: This lavishly illustrated volume takes the reader through a journey of some six centuries of development of the refined arts of calligraphy and illumination in the Islamic world. Much has been written on the dawn and early stages of the development of Arabic script and the position of calligraphy as an art form within Islamic civilization. This catalogue seeks to follow this story further into the golden age of Islamic calligraphy and its appreciation and patronage as the chief form of artistic expression from Islamic Spain to China.

The works of art carefully selected for this catalogue, which accompanies an exhibition at the prestigious Sam Fogg gallery in London, follow the impact of the introduction of paper into the Islamic world and its effect on both the quality and the scope of the calligraphic art form. Paper – rather than parchment – allowed for inscriptions to be penned on a massive scale, and one of the highlights here is a monumental half line from the so-called ‘Baysunghur’ Qur’an, which was probably the largest Qur’an manuscript commissioned by an imperial court.

The transition to paper also witnessed the codification of the ‘six pens’ or six recognized cursive scripts, which still hold. From this standardization of the script styles, lineages of recognized calligraphy masters were established. Calligraphers became hailed as artists and were highly valued at imperial courts. In the great age of the Ottoman Turks, the Safavid Persians and the Mughals in North India, there are numerous accounts of calligraphers moving between these Islamic empires by ever more lavish promises of patronage. The Pandnameh of Loqman, A book of advice of 1534–35 and made in Bukhara is one such example. The calligrapher Mahmud ibn Ishaq [al-Shahabi] was likely taken to Bukhara after the occupation of his native Herat in 1528–29, when ‘Ubaidullah Khan, the Uzbek ruler, took many of the city’s prized artists and calligraphers with him back to his capital.

The position of prominence of calligraphy within the Islamic courts is highlighted by the development of the lavish arts of illumination, book binding and other aspects of the art of the book. The intricate designs which developed to decorate the margins and the interlinear space between the lines of text became a recognized art form in itself. Designs ranged from dazzling geometric compositions to scenes of nature populated by fabulous creatures. The combination of masterful calligraphy and radiant illumination produced princely works of art for the most discerning of imperial patrons. ‘The Ball and Mallet’ or halnama by Mahmud Ibn Muhammad ‘Arifi al-Haravi, for example, is a Sufi text produced at the court of Shah Tahmasp c. 1540 and its wonderful illuminated borders are attributable to Aqa Mirak, one of the great Safavid court painters.

Description: Zurich: Hauser & Wirth, 2017. 29cm., hardcover, 112pp. illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: To coincide with Art Basel 2017, Hauser & Wirth Zürich presents an exhibition uniting two great figures of 20th- century American sculpture: Alexander Calder (1898 – 1976) and David Smith (1906 – 1965). Realised in close collaboration with both the Calder Foundation and The Estate of David Smith, ‘Alexander Calder / David Smith’ explores the artists’ mutual resolution to test the limitations of traditional sculpture and redefine the parameters of abstraction in three dimensions. More than the simplified conceptions of the artists – Calder, the ingenious extrovert who commanded the Parisian avant-garde and set the simplicity of abstraction in motion; and Smith, the man of iron isolated on a mountain top, a constructor of enigmatic, wildly diverse ciphers who gave three-dimensional form to the Abstract Expressionist generation – the exhibition, enriched by the dialogue between these two modern masters, sheds light on the deeper complexities of their achievements. The presentation spotlights both intimate and large-scale works across four decades and illuminates how, over the course of their careers, both artists asked many of the same questions that challenged the assumptions of what sculpture could be, but answered them with wildly different solutions in pursuit of their own personal aesthetic identities.

Description: London: Giles, 2018. 25cm., hardcover, illus. Exhibition to be held at The Frick Collection, New York

Summary: In 1816, the North Carolina State House in Raleigh commissioned a full-length statue of George Washington to stand in the hall of the State Senate. Thomas Jefferson, believing that no American sculptor was up to the task, recommended Antonio Canova (1757–1822), then one of Europe’s most celebrated artists. The first and only work Canova created for America, the statue depicted the nation’s first president in ancient Roman garb, per Jefferson’s urging, drafting his farewell address to the states. It was unveiled to great acclaim in 1821, and people traveled from far and wide to see it. Tragically, only a decade later, a fire swept through the State House, reducing the statue to just a few charred fragments. Canova’s George Washington examines the history of the artist’s lost masterpiece, probably the least well known of his public monuments. It brings together for the first time Canova’s full-sized preparatory plaster model (which has never left Italy), four preparatory sketches for the sculpture, and related engravings and drawings. The exhibition also includes Thomas Lawrence’s 1816 oil portrait of Canova, which, like the model and several sketches, will be on loan from the Gypsotheca e Museo Antonio Canova in Possagno, Italy, the birthplace of the artist. The exhibition is organized by Xavier F. Salomon, The Frick Collection’s Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, in collaboration with Mario Guderzo, Director of the Gypsotheca e Museo Antonio Canova, the Venice International Foundation, and Friends of Venice Italy Inc. Following its presentation at the Frick, the exhibition will be shown in Italy at the Gypsotheca e Museo Antonio Canova in Possagno in the fall of 2018.

Description: London: Holberton, 2018. 21cm., pbk., 80pp., 40 color illus. Exhibition held at The Courtauld Gallery, London.

Summary: This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition dedicated to Antoine Caron’s graphic work and explores the role the Queen Mother Regent Catherine de’ Medici played in a key series of drawings, some reunited here for the first time. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition to be held at The Courtauld Gallery, which will be the first dedicated to the graphic oeuvre of Antoine Caron (1521–1599). Bringing together a core group of drawings centred around the figures and deeds of the French Royal family, the Valois, this display will highlight the role played by the Regent Catherine de’ Medici (1519–1589). Featuring the Valois series, a set of drawings here reunited for the first time, the display will showcase the way in which the powerful and influential Catherine promoted the success of her regency and future of her progeny by delivering a series of lavish courtly events that were meant to enhance the power and diplomacy of her family. The drawings in this display represent jousts, tournaments, festivals and a naval battle, events that occurred at the French court during the reigns of Catherine’s sons Charles IX and Henri III. Preparatory designs for a group of tapestries, these visual documents relate to actual events that were organised by the court at the French castles of Anet, Fontainebleau, Bayonne and the Tuileries Gardens. Minutely designed, they will thus allow to reconstruct the visual testimony of those events, as they were documented in written contemporary sources.

Description: New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2018. 26cm., pbk., 224pp., 125 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: The Poetry of Nature offers an in-depth look at more than 40 extraordinary Japanese paintings that represent every major school and movement of the Edo period, including Kano, Rinpa, Nanga, Zen, Maruyama-Shijo, and Ukiyo-e. The unifying theme is a celebration of the natural world, expressed in varied forms, from the bold, graphic manner of Rinpa to the muted sensitivity of Nanga. Among the artists whose works are included are Ike Taiga (1723–1776), Maruyama Okyo (1733–1795), and Sakai Hoitsu (1761–1828). John T. Carpenter looks specifically at the intertwinement of painting and poetry, a Japanese artistic tradition that reached new heights during the Edo period. In addition to new readings and translations of Japanese and Chinese poems, Carpenter sheds light on the ways in which Edo artists used verse to transform their paintings into a hybrid literary and visual art.

Summary: Qajar Women highlights the diversity of women’s representations throughout Qajar artistic production and explores changes in the defining notions of female beauty in modern Islamic art. Representations of women in the public and private sphere, female musicians, and aristocratic or symbolic women help to demonstrate their centrality in the artistic expression of 19th-century Iran. Qajar Women offers the opportunity to showcase artworks of the Museum of Islamic Art’s permanent collection that have never been displayed in the past and to contextualise them with historical photographs from the Women’s Worlds in Qajar Iran digital archive of the Harvard University Library, which demonstrate the artistic modernisation in Iran that appeared through both paintings and photography. The objects range from albums featuring watercolour paintings to exquisite jewels evoking fascinating and rarely-told narratives of the Qajar artistic and social tradition.

Record created on 07/24/2017
Description: Milan: Silvana, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 336pp., 170 color illus. Exhibition held at GAM, Torino. English text.

Summary: This book investigates the use of color in art through artistic movements and research that stand apart from canonical histories on color and abstraction, with multiple accounts relating to memory, politics, spirituality, storytelling, psychology and synesthesia. By analyzing the different color theories that gradually took shape in the turbulent socio-political context that characterized the 20th century, Emotions of Color in Art reflects on a perspective that considers light, its vibrations and the world of emotions, while challenging the standardization of the use of color in the modern age (synthetic colors) and the digital era (RGB colors offered by various online palettes), a leveling that considerably reduces our ability to distinguish colors in the real world.

Artists: William Turner, Édouard Manet, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky, Edvard Munch, Henri Matisse, Giacomo Balla, aul Klee, Alexander Calder, Josef Albers, Mark Rothko, Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Victor Vasarely, Mario Schifano, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Alighiero Boetti, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, James Turrell, Anish Kapoor, Damien Hirst, Ed Atkins and many more.

Record created on 08/24/2017
Description: Chicago: Arts Club of Chicago, 2017. 27 x 24cm., hardcover, 56pp. illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Ralph Coburn: Random Sequence is published to accompany the first national exhibition for the artist (born 1923), which assembles 36 individual color-block canvases in a room-scale installation. Trained originally as an architect at MIT in the 1940s, Boston-based artist Ralph Coburn worked outside the mainstream, exploring ideas of seriality, authorship, and participatory aesthetics. Inserting himself into a circle of art students and professors, Coburn eventually left architecture school and traveled to Paris and New York, steeping himself in contemporary theories of art. His graphic color-block paintings from the 1950s often derive from motifs in landscape or the urban environment; exceptional is the choice by Coburn to leave their specific arrangement to the owner or exhibitor, an early notion of interactivity yet to be credited to Coburn that anticipated similar strategies made popular in recent decades. The Arts Club of Chicago will exhibit an unrealized installation conceived by the artist in 1962, rehanging paintings over the course of the exhibition.

Description: London: Piano Nobile, 2016. 28cm., pbk., 66pp. illus.

Summary: Published to accompany the exhibition at Piano Nobile, William Coldstream | Euan Uglow: Daisies and Nudes is a fully illustrated catalogue exploring the artists'unique personal and artistic relationship as two of the foremost proponents of post-war figurative painting in Britain. In the years following WWII, Uglow studied under Coldstream first at Camberwell and then the Slade School of Art upon Coldstream’s election to Professor. Even amongst a young group of exceptional painters including Craigie Aitchison, Michael Andrews and Howard Hodgkin, Coldstream immediately recognised Uglow as a precocious talent, enrolling at Camberwell aged just sixteen. Coldstream and Uglow’s relationship evolved from that of teacher and student into one of mutual influence and sustained artistic dialogue, continuing throughout and beyond Coldstream’s lifetime. Both renowned for their painstakingly methodical painting processes, neither was prolific and thus their works remain rarities, infrequently seen. The first exhibition to examine this relationship, the catalogue presents a carefully edited selection of major works, from nudes, still-lifes, cityscapes and portraits.

Description: Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 448pp., 450 color illus. Exhibition to be held at the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC.

Summary: Since the last century, the relationship between vanguard and self-taught artists has been defined by contradiction. The established art world has been quick to draw clear distinctions between trained and untrained artists, yet at the same time it has been fascinated by outliers whom it draws selectively and intermittently into its orbits. For a new exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, curator Lynne Cooke explores shifting conceptualizations of the American outlier across the twentieth century, drawing on the inherent sociality of the exhibition as form in her installation of these works. This companion catalog, Outliers and American Vanguard Art, offers a fantastic opportunity to consider the works by schooled and self-taught creators in relation to each other defined by historical circumstance.

The art works in Outliers and American Vanguard Art come from three distinct periods when the intersections between mainstream and outlier artists were most dynamic and productive, ushering in exhibitions of art based on various degrees of co-existence, inclusion, and assimilation. Works by such diverse artists as Charles Sheeler, Christina Ramberg, and Matt Mullican are set in conversation with a range of artifacts by self-taught artists such as Horace Pippin, Janet Sobel, and Henry Darger. Cooke also examines a recent influx of radically expressive work that challenges what it means to be an outlier today. She reveals how these distinctions have been freighted with a distinctively American valence as she investigates our assumptions about creativity, artistic practice, and the role of the artist in contemporary culture. Outliers and American Vanguard Art is the most comprehensive show that examines outliers in dialogue with their established peers yet to be mounted, and it is sure to inspire vigorous conversation about how artists and the work they make are represented.

Summary: In the 1870s France was devastated by the Franco-Prussian war, and violent insurrection in Paris drove numerous Impressionist artists to seek refuge in England. Their experiences in London and the friendships that developed not only influenced their own work, but also contributed to the British art scene. This book, published to accompany a major exhibition, is the first to tell the story of the French Impressionists who experienced a creative flourishing in London as they responded to British culture and social life—regattas, processions, parks, and of course the Thames. New texts from leading writers draw out key figures and events from this remarkable period, revealing the artists’ connections with patrons, art dealers, and British artists, and considering both the contribution they made to British art and art education and the impact their cross-Channel experiences had on French art.

Summary: The dazzling splendors of the court of Napoleon I (1769–1821) reflected the grandeur and ambitions of the greatest empire of the day. This luxurious volume recreates the ambiance and captures the spirit that prevailed in the French court during the Empire through the material manifestations of the Imperial Household. The Imperial Household, a key institution during Napoleon’s reign, was responsible for the daily lives of the Imperial family; it consisted of six departments, each headed by a high-ranking dignitary of the Empire: the grand chaplain, grand master of ceremonies, grand marshal of the Palace, grand master of the hunt, grand chamberlain, and grand equerry – each intimately involved with every moment of pageantry in the court. Featured here are more than 250 works of fine and decorative art, the visual magnificence of which was part of a calculated and deliberate effort to fashion a monarchic identity for the new emperor.

Summary: Noto soprattutto per essere stato l’autore del terzo tomo della Felsina Pittrice (1769), il bolognese Luigi Crespi (1708-1779), figlio del grande Giuseppe Maria, unisce alla carriera di storiografo quella di pittore. Nell’etaÌ di Prospero Lambertini, vescovo di Bologna dal 1731 e in seguito papa con il titolo di Benedetto XIV (1740-1758), Crespi junior diviene in cittaÌ ritrattista di grido, riuscendo a interpretare le esigenze di una committenza aristocratica che desidera presentarsi esibendo i modi disinvolti ed eleganti della ‘civiltaÌ della conversazione’. Protagonisti delle sue tele sono dunque dame e cavalieri, briosi e spigliati, dipinti in “ottimo gusto”, in un “bello stile oltremontano” (Zanotti), che viene ulteriormente messo a punto dal pittore a seguito di un soggiorno nell’Europa cosmopolita delle corti di Vienna e Dresda, compiuto nel 1752. Ma il “particolare dono di ritrarre le fisionomie” (Oretti), riconosciutogli dalla critica coeva, lo conduce anche a dare voce ai valori della piuÌ sana borghesia, votata al lavoro, produttiva e ingegnosa, individuata nella pastorale di Lambertini come parte essenziale del proprio progetto di riforma.

Description: London: Piano Nobile, 2017. 32cm., pbk., 144pp. illus. Exhibition held at Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), Dublin

Summary: First published to accompany major retrospective exhibitions at West Cork Arts Centre, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), and Piano Nobile, Kings Place, this full-colour illustrated monograph explores William Crozier’s whole career, taking in the second half of the twentieth century – a key period in the development of British and Irish art. The catalogue is furnished with essays presenting brand new research by renown art historians and curators, Illuminated by unpublished sources and personal memoirs. What emerges is a picture of the continuum that runs through all of Crozier’s work, revealing a fascinating narrative that, far from a story of transformation from darker, earlier imagery into the apparent hedonism of later landscapes, is one of continuity of purpose in Crozier’s mind-set that connects 1950s Britain and Ireland with the concerns of the new millennium...

Summary: La Sacra Cintola, la cintura della Vergine custodita nel Duomo che per secoli è stata il tesoro più prezioso di Prato, è un simbolo religioso e civile, fulcro delle vicende artistiche della città ed elemento cardine della sua identità. La sottile striscia (di 87 centimetri) di lana di capra broccata in filo d’oro è il fulcro di un’esposizione che comprende altre opere di valore, prima tra tutte la pala di Bernardo Daddi del 1337-1338 che racconta la leggenda di come la reliquia sia stata consegnata a San Tommaso dalla Madonna al momento dell’Assunzione, sia stata portata a Prato verso il 1141 dal mercante pratese Michele Dagomari e da questi donata nel 1172, alla pieve della città. Il catalogo dell’esposizione illustra, oltre naturalmente alla reliquia solitamente conservata nella cappella di Agnolo Gaddi nel Duomo, la serie di dipinti, sculture e miniature in mostra, che testimoniano le varie elaborazioni del tema dell’Assunta che dona la propria cintola. In aggiunta, testi e foto propongono lo studio della cappella affrescata da Gaddi, la prepositura di Santo Stefano, le ostensioni che abitualmente avvengono a Prato e la storia del suo culto nei secoli.

Summary: David Evans' death in a road accident in 1988, at the age of 59, bought to an abrupt end the career of one of the most distinguished watercolorists of his generation. The recent discovery of pictures remaining in his studio, nearly thirty years after the memorial tribute staged by the Redfern Gallery in 1988, provides the opportunity for a new generation to discover his work, though the publication of this first ever book on David Evans and the accompanying touring exhibition. Evans' strikingly large watercolors, (typically they measure over one meter in height or breadth), span two decades from the late 1960s to the late 1980s, evoking a vision that is still surprisingly potent today. They have all the period charm of the glam rock era they so powerfully evoke but at the same time they are highly charged with the political energy of the period and mirror Thatcher's Britain, with its Industrial unrest, its towns and country undergoing transformation, the Faulklands war and threat of the Evil Empire, the building of nuclear power stations and the dawn of awareness about Climate Change as a political issue. Evans was an ardent campaigner and environmentalist. The landscapes, (a homage to his native Suffolk) are peppered with industrial plants, landfill, scrap heaps, and encroaching roads and army maneuvers. Urban subjects, similar in some ways to the compositions of Lowry, show factory plants, spectators' sports, cafeterias, the interiors of museums, city centers and beach scenes.

Description: New York: Dominique Levy, 2017. 34cm., hardcover, 176pp. illus.

Summary: This volume explores the parallel careers of two celebrated postwar painters: Willem de Kooning (1904–1997) and Zao Wou-Ki (1921–2013). Published in conjunction with Dominique Lévy’s exhibition pairing the artists' abstract landscapes, this wide-ranging catalog demonstrates that, although the two never met, de Kooning and Zao shared a model of color, composition and motif that remains relevant in the world of contemporary painting. With texts in English, Chinese and French, Willem de Kooning / Zao Wou-Ki charts an East-West dialogue in the immediate aftermath of World War II, tracing the thread of nonfigurative abstraction in Chinese, European and American modernism. With rich archival material, never-before-published photographs and newly commissioned essays, Willem de Kooning / Zao Wou-Ki offers an innovative transnational reading of postwar painting.

Description: Zwolle: Waanders & De Kunst, 2017. 27cm., pbk., 160pp., 120 color illus. Exhibition to be held at Museum Alkmaar. Dutch text

Summary: This autumn Alkmaar turns the spotlight on Emanuel de Witte, one of the most talented painters of the Golden Age. 2017 marks the four hundredth anniversary of the artist’s birth in the city. It is the first time that a monographic exhibition has been devoted to Emanuel de Witte – a remarkable omission, given that he is regarded as the greatest painter of church interiors of his day. Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar presents the range of De Witte’s oeuvre and his mastery of perspective and light with exceptional loans from Dutch and foreign collections. The exhibition also provides an insight into the tragic life of this striking personality.

Summary: Sonia Delaunay (1885–1979) was a key figure in the emerging Parisian avant-garde who experimented with colour and abstraction. Throughout her long career, she combined her devotion to painting with the expansion of her artistic ideas to objects from daily life. Sonia Delaunay : Art, Design and Fashion aims to reveal her multidisciplinary practice through her paintings, her fashion and textile designs, and her collaborations with poets and theatre designers. The publication focuses in particular on the years the artist resided in Madrid during the First World War and argues that her time here represented a crucial juncture in her relationship with the applied arts.

Description: Madrid: Museo Nacional del Prado, 2017. 17cm., pbk., 112pp. illus. Exhibition catalogue. English text

Summary: The Museo del Prado is presenting a new focus on its permanent collection through a specially devised thematic itinerary of works that encourages a reflection on the historical reality of same-sex relationships and non-normative sexual identities. The richness and diversity of the Prado’s collections allow for this new approach, which makes use of art-historical theory to analyse the most profound meaning of this selection of 30 works. Among them are iconic images such as Orestes and Pylades by the School of Praxiteles and David with the Head of Goliath by Caravaggio, as well as little-known works such as El Cid by Rosa Bonheur and El Maricón de la Tía Gila by Goya. The itinerary is structured into six different thematic routes based around various core displays and has the overall title of The Other’s Gaze. Spaces of difference.

Description: Heule: Snoeck, 2017. 29cm., hardcover, ca. 400pp., 350 illus. Exhibition held at Musée du Louvre-Lens

Summary: L’ambition de ce projet d’exposition est d’offrir au public une clé d’accès spécifique aux civilisations antiques par une activité pratiquée par beaucoup et connue de tous tant elle est présente encore dans notre vie quotidienne, la musique, et de mettre en lumière son rôle et son importance dans les sociétés anciennes (Orient ancien, Égypte, Grèce et Rome), à travers des œuvres d’une grande diversité. La musique ponctuait la vie de ces sociétés : elle fournit donc un point d’entrée fondamental qui permet de mieux comprendre leur fonctionnement social, politique ou encore religieux et finalement la vie quotidienne des Anciens. La multitude de témoignages iconographiques, d’instruments conservés ou encore de sources écrites permet d’appréhender un univers a priori impalpable, celui du sonore et de l’acoustique, et d’évoquer à la fois les sonorités et les différents types de musiques de l’Antiquité, aux fonctions multiples.

Title: AUGUST ERIKSSON : The Walk
Author: Snickare, Marten
Price: $40.00
ISBN: 9783735603104
Record created on 05/17/2017
Description: Bielefeld: Kerber, 2016. 31cm., hardcover, 80pp., 66 color images. Exhibition held at Galleri Axel, Stockholm. English text.

Summary: The Walk entails a tension, indeed a paradox, between the subject and the medium. The subject, the walk, is about process, physical movement, step after step further along the path; while the medium, the photograph, is an arrested moment of seeing. August Eriksson captures the corporeal movement by seriality and repetition. Sixty-six images follow one after another, all with the same strict composition: the path, seen from the eye level of the walker, disappears into the vanishing point of the image. The images urges me on to browse further, to continue moving from spread to spread, following along in the repetition and variation in the images. August Eriksson is a photographer based in Sweden. He exhibited in institutions like Kulturhuset and Fotografins hus in Stockholm. ’The Walk’ is his second photo book. In 2014 he published ’Sacred Waters’ about the Japanese bathing culture. His interest in working with publications started when he founded photo art magazine ’Motiv’ in 2004.

Title: The Polaroid Project : At the Intersection of Art and Technology
Author: Ewing, William A. ; Barbara P. Hitchcock (eds)
Price: $50.00
ISBN: 9780520296169
Record created on 04/23/2017
Description: Berkeley: University of California Press, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 288pp. illus. Exhibition held at Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth.

Summary: Polaroid instant photography revolutionized the taking and making of pictures, and the story of its beginnings is a simple one. In 1943, after being asked by his daughter why she couldn’t immediately see the photograph he had just taken, American inventor and scientist Edwin H. Land conceived of the technology required to make this seemingly impossible demand a reality—within an hour. Land’s creation was a groundbreaking scientific accomplishment that also heralded an exciting new chapter of artistic expression. Through the efforts of thousands of photographers the world over, as well as the corporation’s own artist support program, which provided many with materials, Polaroid would help shape the artistic landscape of the late twentieth century. Published to accompany a major traveling exhibition, The Polaroid Project is a creative exploration of the relationship between Polaroid’s many technological innovations and the art that was created with their help. Richly designed with over 300 illustrations, this impressive volume showcases not only the myriad and often idiosyncratic approaches taken by such photographers as Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ellen Carey, and Chuck Close, but also a fascinating selection of the technical objects and artifacts that speak to the sheer ingenuity that lay behind the art. With essays by the exhibition’s curators and leading photographic writers and historians, The Polaroid Project provides a unique perspective on the Polaroid phenomenon—a technology, an art form, a convergence of both—and its enduring cultural legacy.

Description: Trento: Castello del Buonconsiglio, Provincia Autonoma di Trento, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 495pp. prof. illus., most in color. Exhibition held at Castello del Buonconsiglio, Trento. Italian text.

Summary: An extensive exhibition in Buonconsiglio Castle reveals the stature of Marcello Fogolino, a remarkable artist whose fame as a painter was partially eclipsed by his private affairs. His conviction for the murder of a barber, apparently carried out together with his brother, his banishment, his spying activities in favour of the Venetian Republic and the highs and lows of his career paint the picture of a dramatic and controversial figure. The scope of the displays is to allow the wider public to learn more about the artist, forced to stay at length in Trento, who gradually succeeded in acquiring the esteem of Prince Bishop Bernardo Cles with his works, until he eventually became court painter. The exhibition winds its way through the rooms of the Magno Palazzo, with its fresco decorations painted partly by Romanino and Dossi and partly by Fogolino himself. It begins with the altarpieces that distinguished the evolution in his stylistic development in Vicenza and the province of Pordenone, highlighting the wealth of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Triveneto area and taking a closer look at relationships and cultural collaboration with other artists in Vicenza, including Giovanni Bonconsiglio, Bartolomeo Montagna and Francesco Verla.

Summary: Fils du grand Fragonard, Alexandre-Eìvariste Fragonard est neì aÌ Grasse le 26 octobre 1780, mais il passera l’essentiel de son existence aÌ Paris ouÌ il meurt le 11 novembre 1850. Consideìreì comme un enfant prodige, il expose au Salon aÌ Paris deÌs l’âge de treize ans et est placeì par son peÌre dans l’atelier de Jacques-Louis David. Ses deux influences – neìoclassique avec David et celle de la peinture flamande et hollandaise qui lui vient de son peÌre – vont être preìsentes dans son travail tout au long de sa longue et prolifique carrieÌre de peintre, de sculpteur et de deìcorateur. Artiste officiel treÌs actif, il accepte de nombreuses commandes pour la Manufacture de SeÌvres et participe aÌ plusieurs reìalisations pour l’Eìtat sous la Restauration. Il va eìgalement travailler pour la gravure et participer notamment aÌ l’eìdition des Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l’ancienne France du baron Taylor. Injustement oublieì aujourd’hui, Alexandre-Eìvariste Fragonard meìrite largement d’être redeìcouvert : cet ouvrage a l’ambition de deìvoiler plus largement sa carrieÌre aÌ travers ses œuvres conserveìes dans les riches collections des museìes priveìs et publics de Grasse, sa ville natale.

Record created on 04/04/2017
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for the Yale University Art Gallery, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 182pp., 172 illus.

Summary: Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) is known for his candid portraits of people in their everyday environments. This volume in his Human Clay series of books highlights a lively collection of Friedlander’s photographs of celebrations—both public and private. From intimate gatherings to boisterous street parades, costume parties to black-tie affairs, Friedlander captures the spirit of these events and the ways in which they are commemorated. He documents surprisingly intimate moments—couples stealing a kiss, friends engaged in spirited conversation or laughing over drinks, guests lost in music on the dance floor. The images also feature a number of celebrities, including actors Ingrid Bergman and Sidney Poitier, enjoying the revelry at galas and parties, such as one at the famous Sardi’s restaurant in New York.
