Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for the Art Institute of Chicago, 2018. 31cm., hardcover, 204pp., 100 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: With a rigorous approach and self-imposed limitations to both scale and composition, Tomma Abts (b. 1967) has reinvigorated painterly abstraction and its relevance within contemporary art. Using a fixed canvas size and a vertical format, Abts deploys basic formal elements such as arcs, circles, planes, and stripes to create powerful works that are at once subtle and eccentric. This extraordinary book, designed in collaboration with the artist herself, is a substantial and deeply insightful treatment of her career to date and features sixty works made over the past decade. Essays not only contextualize Abts’s work within an art-historical framework of methods, process, and style, but also examine her paintings’ philosophical and psychological dimensions and their embodiment of a creative process that transcends the specifics of any particular work.

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: London: Philip Wilson, in association with Dulwich Picture Gallery , 2018. 28cm., pbk., 176pp., 152 color illus.

Summary: In 2018 Dulwich Picture Gallery hosts a major retrospective of Edward Bawden's long and distinguished career. Edward Bawden RA CBE (1903- 89) was widely admired in his lifetime and is still well known today as an illustrator, printmaker and commercial designer of rare talent. While showcasing the best of Bawden's work in these disciplines, this accompanying catalogue will also reassess his achievements as a fi ne artist, looking particularly at his pre-war watercolours and at the series of wartime portraits he made in North Africa and the Middle East as well as in the UK. Not since Bawden's death has such a wide-ranging collection of his work been assembled, with linocuts and engravings, collage, large-scale maps, studies for design and mural work - even a Victorian-style peep show. Once described as 'a reluctant national treasure', Bawden began his career in the 1920s as a precociously talented designer and illustrator, and he successfully reinvented himself time and again as the decades passed, while always retaining a distinctive freshness, humour and humanity. Following the thematic structure of the exhibition, this richly illustrated book includes a number of previously unpublished works alongside Bawden's most signifi cant watercolours, linocuts, engravings, book illustrations and commercial designs. With themes close to Bawden's heart, such as gardening, the book is both a colourful introduction to the work of a remarkable twentieth century British artist and an intimate portrait of a fascinating man.

Title: WILLIAM BLAKE and the Age of Aquarius
Author: Eisenman, Mark Crosby (et al)
Price: $45.00
ISBN: 9780691175256
Record created on 04/18/17
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: Paris: Somogy, 2017. 23cm., pbk., 204pp., 160 illus. Exhibition held at Musée Jean de La Fontaine, Chateau-Thierry.

Summary: Né à Château-Thierry en 1849, Albert Bligny renonça à la carrière de notaire conforme à la tradition familiale pour s’installer à Paris où il entra comme élève dans l’atelier de Léon Bonnat. Il exposera très régulièrement au Salon de 1875 jusqu’à sa mort en 1908. Artiste discret et estimé, il fut à la fois peintre, aquarelliste, dessinateur et illustrateur d’ouvrages littéraires. Il retint l’attention du public par sa peinture militaire, son thème de prédilection, ce qui ne manquait pas d’étonner ses amis et compatriotes qui l’appréciaient pour son humeur pacifique et sa discrétion. Albert Bligny a le charme discret mais tenace d’un artiste qui se voulait sobre et exact, qui additionne à la justesse du regard une empathie bienveillante avec ces soldats compatriotes dont il partagea le quotidien lors de la guerre de 1870. Engagé la vie militaire ne fut pas virtuelle, il en fit l’expérience comme ses maîtres de la peinture militaire, Detaille, Meissonier, confronté à une défaite humiliante qui allait marquer des générations. Il fit le choix de vivre sa vie en qualité d’artiste et du bout de son pinceau, sa vision du monde militaire, glorieuse et fascinée par l’épopée napoléonienne ne manque pas d’humour. De batailles en retraites, de farandoles en cavalcades, il reste à deviner qui fut le discret Albert Bligny.

Description: Milan: Silvana, 2017. 27cm., pbk., 168pp., 40 color illus. French-English text. Exhibition held at Musée Bonnard, Le Cannet.

Summary: Très jeune, Pierre Bonnard a un rêve, celui d’être un homme libre et indépendant, qui « cherche uniquement à faire quelque chose de personnel. » Il a traversé tous les courants de peinture de la fin du XIXe siècle à la première moitié du XXe siècle – postimpressionnisme, fauvisme, cubisme, abstraction, surréalisme –, participant au passage au groupe des Nabis. Si son œuvre nous émeut aujourd’hui encore plus qu’hier, c’est qu’au désenchantement de la modernité répond l’espérance de sa peinture que l’on peut considérer comme l’une des plus inspirées de son temps. À l’occasion du 150e anniversaire de la naissance du peintre, le musée Bonnard lui rend hommage en réunissant autour des pièces majeures de ses collections propres, un ensemble de chefs-d’œuvre prêté par d’importantes collections publiques et privées françaises parmi lesquelles le musée d’Orsay et le musée national d’Art moderne à Paris. Toutes les œuvres sont reproduites et accompagnées d’une notice détaillée et richement illustrée. Un entretien de Véronique Serrano avec Guy Cogeval et Isabelle Cahn complète ce panorama.

Description: Oxford: Ashmolean Museum, 2018. 28cm., pbk., 224pp., 130 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: As some American artists began to eliminate people and remove extraneous details from their compositions, they often employed neat, orderly brushwork or close-up, unemotional photography. Artists as diverse as Patrick Henry Bruce, John Covert, Georgia O'Keeffe, Paul Strand and Arthur Dove navigated European and American avant-garde circles, picking and choosing new ideas and methods. Inspiration ranged from cubism and machine parts to new technologies, and they found ways to bring order to the modern world through extreme simplification. For them, abstraction involved absence and presence - the evacuation of human beings but also the desire to depict something that would not otherwise be visible or to render visible unseen natural processes like the passage of time, sound waves, or weather patterns. Their artworks provide a new context for the precisionist works in the subsequent sections and point to modern ideas about what art could be. How does a crisp painting technique relate to an aesthetic of absence?.

Title: Zuiderburen - Portretten uit Vlaanderen, 1400-1700

Record created on 09/13/17
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: Munich-New York: Prestel, 2017. 26cm., hardcover, 184pp., 101 color illus. Exhibition held at the de Young Museum, San Francisco.

Summary: While the self-taught artists featured in this groundbreaking catalogue were born in the Jim Crow period of institutionalized racism, their works embody the promise and attainment of freedom in the modern Civil Rights era and address some of the most profound and persistent issues in American society, including race, class, gender, and spirituality. Originally created as expressions of individual identity and communal solidarity, these eloquent objects are powerful testaments to the continuity and survival of African American culture. This gorgeous book features lush illustrations of works by artists such as Thornton Dial, Bessie Harvey, Purvis Young, and the Gee’s Bend quilters—including Gearldine Westbrook, Jessie T. Pettway, and more—and presents a series of insightful essays.

Title: Mastering the Masters: Pre-Raphaelites and Their Sources of Inspirations

Description: Munich-New York: Prestel, Delmonico Books, in association with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, 2018. 31cm., hardcover, 256pp., 200 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Started in the early 19th century by a group of British painters who rejected the sovereignty of the Royal Academy, the Pre-Raphaelites embraced the natural world and bright colors--as opposed to the dark palettes and amorphous lines that emerged in the wake of the Renaissance. Their mission was to be fundamentally modern by emulating the past. Now readers can appreciate their achievements in this volume that offers side-by-side comparisons of 19th-century masterpieces with the 15th- and 16th-century Early Italian and Early Netherlandish paintings that inspired them. Exquisite reproductions of works by Giotto, Fra Angelico, van Eyck, Botticelli, Titian, Veronese, and Raphael are presented alongside examples by William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, and others. The book traces the evolution of the Pre-Raphaelites, and details how these painters were exposed to the early masters as they traveled and encountered the finest European collections. The volume also features decorative arts, including stained glass and tapestries in emulation of Flemish and French textiles as well as "medievalized" ecclesiastic decorations. The result is an illuminating examination that delves into the Pre-Raphaelites' aesthetic vocabulary and broadens our understanding of their motives and inspiration.

Title: Crivelli, Lotto, Guercino : Immagini della predicazione tra Quattrocento e Settecento
Author: Capriotti, Giuseppe ; Francesca Coltrinari

Record created on 10/10/17
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 224pp., 100 illus. Exhibition held at Museo-Antico Tesoro della Santa Casa, Loreto.

Summary: L’arte, insieme alla parola e alla gestualità, fu un efficace mezzo di comunicazione per i predicatori che percorrevano l’Italia e l’Europa per istruire, convincere, convertire, evangelizzare il mondo: dal monogramma inventato da san Bernardino da Siena alle iconografie più incisive come l’Immacolata Concezione o la Madonna del Rosario, ai racconti di conversioni e perdoni, le immagini fornivano a “infedeli” (ebrei e turchi) e peccatori dei modelli di redenzione e cambiamento. Il volume propone un percorso sul grande fenomeno della predicazione fra XV e XVIII secolo: le opere di artisti noti – come Vittore Crivelli, Lorenzo Lotto, Simone de Magistris, Girolamo Muziano, Taddeo Zuccari, Guercino – e di altri meno noti, in gran parte provenienti dal territorio delle Marche, formano il racconto di un pezzo importante della storia e della cultura europea, e non solo, e insieme intendono mostrare la ricchezza di relazioni e la sorprendente profondità di un patrimonio culturale colpito, ma non cancellato, dal terremoto del 2016.

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.

Description: Köln: König, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 294pp., 217 color illus. Exhibition held at Basel Kunstmuseum. English text.

Summary: This exhibition explores the early work of Marc Chagall. His creative breakthrough came at a time when his life was torn between contrasting experiences. Chagall lived in Paris from 1911 until 1914, creating paintings that combined his recollections of Russian provincial life with iconic fragments of the metropolis around him. Reminiscences of Russian folk art make an appearance in his works from the period, as do the most recent stylistic experiments he was exposed to through his life in the center of the artistic avant-garde and his acquaintance with many of the most progressive artists, including Picasso, Robert and Sonja Delaunay, and Jacques Lipchitz. Overtaken by the outbreak of World War I during a visit back home, Chagall was forced to spend the next eight years in Russia. The unexpected change of circumstances initially prompted a phase of searching self-scrutiny that speaks from many paintings and works on paper created in and after 1914. The artist produced numerous self-portraits, depictions of Jewish life, and designs for the stage setting for the celebration of the first anniversary of the October Revolution that he organized in his role as the commissar for arts and director of the art school in Vitebsk in 1918. We display a representative selection of works from what was for Chagall a period of rapid artistic evolution and personal as well as political upheaval. The core of the show consists of the extraordinary ensemble of major paintings in the collections of the Kunstmuseum Basel and the Im Obersteg Foundation as well as eminent works on loan from Swiss and international private and public collections. They are complemented by documentary ethnographic photographs the Russian artist Solomon Yudovin took in 1912–1914 during the so-called Gintsburg Expeditions into Russia’s shtetlekh, in an attempt to capture a world constantly endangered by pogroms, political unrest and social dynamics. Yudovin’s photographs preserve the rich traditions of shtetl life that profoundly informed Chagall’s oeuvre.

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.

Description: Paris: Le Passage, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 364pp. illus. Exhibition held at Archives Nationale, Paris.

Summary: Lemercier, Le Vau, Mansart… ces quelques grands noms incarnent la gloire des architectes français du XVIIe siècle. Leur célébrité individuelle, liée à des édifices et à des commanditaires particulièrement prestigieux, cache en réalité une autre histoire : derrière leurs figures emblématiques, c'est tout un groupe professionnel qui émerge des anciens métiers du bâtiment, pour transformer en profondeur la pratique des arts et de la construction en France. À travers près de deux cents œuvres et documents exceptionnels, l'exposition Dessiner pour bâtir. Le métier d'architecte au XVIIe siècle explore les enjeux sociaux, culturels et artistiques de l'affirmation de l'architecte moderne en France, depuis le temps de Henri IV jusqu'à celui de Louis XIV. Qui se dit architecte et comment le devient-on? La question du statut, de la position sociale et de la culture des maîtres d'œuvre est essentielle, en ce siècle qui voit les débuts de l'enseignement académique de l'architecture et la constitution de véritables carrières pour les architectes praticiens. Comment le projet d'un édifice est-il conçu ? Les dessins, depuis la première esquisse jusqu'aux belles feuilles de présentation, sont le moyen d'expression privilégié des architectes et leur examen révèle non seulement l'évolution des pratiques graphiques au cours du siècle, mais aussi la diversité des personnalités artistiques de leurs auteurs. Quel est, enfin, le rôle concret de l'architecte sur le chantier de construction? Les documents techniques ou contractuels, dessins d'exécution et maquettes, toujours plus nombreux et divers, témoignent des responsabilités croissantes du maître d'œuvre, aussi bien du point de vue formel et technique que juridique et économique. Bénéficiant d'un partenariat exceptionnel du Nationalmuseum de Stockholm et de prêts de nombreuses institutions et particuliers, cette exposition permet ainsi de dresser, à petites touches, un portrait collectif des architectes du Grand Siècle, professionnels et artistes tout à la fois.

Summary: Enciclopedica figura di erudito, divenuto cardinale all’età di cinquant’anni, Leopoldo de’ Medici spicca nel panorama del collezionismo europeo per la vastità dei suoi interessi e la varietà delle opere raccolte. Servendosi di abilissimi agenti, mercanti e segretari italiani e stranieri, radunò, nel corso della sua vita, esemplari eccellenti e raffinati nei più diversi ambiti: sculture antiche e moderne, monete, medaglie, cammei, dipinti, disegni e incisioni, avori, pietre dure e oggetti preziosi, ritratti di piccolo e grande formato, libri, strumenti scientifici e rarità naturali. Le Gallerie degli Uffizi, che conservano ancora la maggior parte della sua raccolta, desiderano mostrare taluni esempi significativi del suo gusto nei diversi campi in cui esercitò l’azione di conoscitore, per illustrare la natura poliedrica delle predilezioni collezionistiche del cardinale e mettere in luce il ricchissimo apporto da lui fornito ai tesori d’arte della famiglia

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for the Whitney Museum of American Art, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 154pp., 80 illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Initially trained as an abstract painter, Mary Corse (b. 1945) emerged in the mid-1960s as one of the few women associated with the California Light and Space movement. This catalogue is the first comprehensive examination of this singular artist's work, and features new scholarship and object studies that underscore how Corse’s groundbreaking approach to light, perception, and subjectivity forged a new language of painting. Over more than five decades, Corse has maintained a commitment to abstraction and belief in modernist painting even as she charted her own course through her studies in quantum physics and investigations into a range of unconventional materials, from Tesla coils and neon to glass microbeads and glitter. Kim Conaty’s essay investigates how the artist’s early experiments with light--creating “paintings” made of fluorescent or neon--made way for her subsequent explorations into how light might be integrated into the surface of her canvases through the interplay of reflection and refraction. Corse’s exquisite paintings activate the viewer in the creation of the perceptual experience: the kinetic effect of the work is contingent upon the movement of the body through space. As Corse has explained: “Art is not on the wall, it’s in your perception”.

Title: LUIGI CRESPI ritrattista nell'età di Papa Lambertini
Author: Graziani, Irene ; Mark Gregory d'Apuzzo
Price: $35.00
ISBN: 9788836637928
Record created on 09/01/17
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2017. 24cm., pbk., 144pp., 80 illus. Exhibition held at Museo Davia Bargellini, Bologna.

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: Munich-New York: Delmonico Books, 2018. 29cm., hardcover, 240pp., 250 images. Exhibition held at Seattle Art Museum.

Summary: Edward S. Curtis is considered one of the world's most famous and accomplished photographers--and justly so, given the depth and breadth of his monumental study of North America's Native peoples and his artistry. This volume looks at three aspects of Curtis's lifetime achievement: Curtis as a highly skilled photographer and printmaker; his vast oeuvre; and the complex man behind the camera. Featuring a unique selection of expertly reproduced vintage Curtis photographs, this book highlights both iconic and previously little-known images. Every type of subject matter, cultural and geographic area, genre of photography, and medium in which Curtis worked is represented, notably his photogravures, silver prints, and rarely seen Orotones and platinum prints. Many of the prints have a distinguished provenance: Edward S. Curtis's personal collection, or important public or private collections built over the past forty years. Penetrating essays--historical, analytical, and scholarly--explore every facet of Curtis's life and work. Monumental and breathtaking, this book is a fitting commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Curtis's birth.

Record created on 09/01/17
Description: Firenze: Mandragora, 2017. 29cm., pbk., 240pp. prof. illus. Exhibition held at Museo di Palazzo Pretorio, Prato.

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.

Record created on 09/21/17
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.

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: Known as the master of French Romanticism for his energetic paintings, Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863) was also a consummate draftsman. This handsome book, one of the few to explore this topic in depth, provides new insight into Delacroix’s drawing practice, paying particular attention to his materials and techniques and the ways in which the artist pushed the boundaries of the medium. The remarkable group of nearly 130 drawings featured here, many of which have been rarely seen, include academic and anatomical studies, sketches from nature, and preparatory drawings related to many of Delacroix’s most renowned canvases, among them The Massacre at Chios and Liberty Leading the People.

Description: New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2018. 26cm., pbk., 224pp., 120 color illus.

Summary: Evocative and often highly erotic works on paper by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Pablo Picasso are presented along with new details about Scofield Thayer (1889–1982), the unusual and complicated man who collected them. Thayer was a wealthy publisher, poet, and aesthete who led an intense public life that included the editorship of the prominent literary journal The Dial and friendships with literary luminaries such as e. e. cummings. In the 1920s, Thayer went on an art-buying spree in London, Paris, Berlin, and Vienna, acquiring approximately 600 works of art. Among these are particularly provocative drawings and watercolors by Klimt, Schiele, and Picasso, at a time when these works were little known or appreciated. This book showcases 52 of the rarely seen works—which have now taken their place as modernist erotic masterpieces—and presents them within the context of the collector’s remarkable life and tempestuous times.

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, 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.

Description: London: Giles, 2018. 27cm., hardcover, 224pp., 175 color illus. Exhibition held at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, Washington DC.

Summary: Presents 90 outstanding pieces made by celebrated jeweller Gustav Fabergé, including two of the famous imperial Easter eggs. The firm of Fabergé, jeweler to the Russian court, was founded in St. Petersburg in 1842. Expanded by the founder’s son, Peter Carl Fabergé (1846–1920), the firm became one of the most famous jewelers of the late nineteenth to early twentieth centuries. Major American collectors, such as Marjorie Merriweather Post, played a significant role in Fabergé’s success after the fall of the imperial regime, and her mansion at Hillwood in Washington, DC now has a collection of about ninety pieces, including two imperial Easter eggs, various works of art of imperial provenance, silver, jewelry, hardstone, and religious items. Recent research on Fabergé, revelations from the Russian public archives, and the discovery of objects thought to be lost have brought to light new information about Fabergé’s career and his creations, including material on several of Hillwood’s Fabergé items. With fabulous new photography, exquisite works of art, and illuminating focus spreads by Fabergé experts, this new volume presents the firm in the broader history of nineteenth to twentieth century jewelry and goldsmithing, documents new attributions and provenances, and examines our continuing fascination with Fabergé’s remarkable work.

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for the Dallas Museum of Art, 2018. 26cm., hardcover, 256pp., 200 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Günther Förg (1952–2013) was a German painter, sculptor, and photographer with an irreverent approach to abstract painting. His paintings on lead became key studies of surface, materiality, and gesture. In the mid-1980s, Förg turned to photography, making portraits and architectural images that document historically and culturally significant buildings throughout Italy and Germany. Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty surveys about seventy works by the artist, foregrounding painting and incorporating important works in other media. Förg’s approach was highly formal and abstract, renewing the romantic utopianism central to the modernism of the 1920s and 1930s, and a sense of nostalgia for that lost vision pervades the work. Featuring beautiful photography, the book examines Förg’s legacy from a fresh point of view through essays examining his oeuvre in terms of painting, sculpture, architecture, modernism, and the instrumentalization of aesthetics through politics, as well as an illustrated chronology and an insightful conversation with artist Liam Gillick.

Description: London: Philip Wilson, in association with The Holburne Museum, Bath, 2018. 28cm., pbk., 112pp., 50 color illus.

Summary: Based on new research this book draws together a group of works from public and private collections to examine, for the fi rst time, the relationship that Gainsborough had with the theatrical world and the most celebrated stage artists of his day. His advocate Henry Bate, editor of the Morning Herald, wrote one of the most successful theatrical afterpieces of the period. Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was linked with the stage through personal friendships with James Quinn, David Garrick and Sarah Siddons, the most renowned actors of the eighteenth century. He painted notable portraits of these and twenty others, including dramatists, dancers and composers. Not long after Gainsborough moved from Bath to London in 1774 the management of the Drury Lane Theatre passed to the artist's friends Richard Brinsley Sheridan and Thomas Linley. At this period London's theatres were undergoing regular refurbishment to take account of technical innovations in lighting and stage machinery. At the King's Theatre in Haymarket in 1778 the 'elegant improvements' included frontispiece fi gures emblematic of Music and Dancing painted in monochrome by Gainsborough. The book establishes the artist's place within Bath and London's theatrical worlds. It will show why the art of ballet, and in particular Gainsborough's sitters Gaetan Vestris, Auguste Vestris and Giovanna Baccelli rose to prominence in 1780, and examines parallels between Gainsborough's much admired painterly naturalism and the theatrical naturalism of David Garrick and Mrs Siddons.

Description: London: National Gallery, 2017. 27cm., hardcover, 72pp., 35 illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: In 1999, Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s Lake Keitele (1905) became the first Finnish painting to enter the National Gallery and is now one of the most popular pictures in the collection. Although the artist and his work are relatively unknown to audiences outside of Finland, he was not only a leading figure in modern Finnish painting but an accomplished practitioner of the decorative arts and a key figure in the development of early twentieth-century Modernism. This book focuses on four versions of his shimmering depictions of Lake Keitele, north of Helsinki; a stylized lake composition which first appeared in the early 1880s, when the artist was still elaborating his own descriptive language, and continued to preoccupy him until well into the 1920s. Anne Robbins examines these abstract and modernist pictures in the light of the international avant gardes with which Gallen-Kallela was in contact for much of his career, and the ways in which his work expressed his fervent Finnish nationalism.

Description: New York: Scala, 2018. 18cm., hardcover, 78pp., 36 color illus. Exhibition held at Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum and the Cornell Fine Arts Museum.

Summary: The Old and New Testaments are full of compelling female characters: good wives and bad, courageous heroines, and deceptive - sometimes deadly - femmes fatales. Dangerous Women presents works from the rich holdings of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art that explore different artists' responses to the women of the Bible. Paintings by Pietro da Cortona, Francesco Cairo, and Fede Galizia and others stand as a reminder of how dangerous biblical women have continued to loom large in the modern imagination. These stories in this volume show how narratives of power are constructed, interpreted, and continue to evolve over the course of time. While some women saved their people, were paragons of virtue, or repented, others were purveyors of sin, harlots, and seductresses. Even if it was through their misbehavior, all of these women - from Mary Magdalene, to Judith and Esther, to Salome and Potiphar's Wife - shaped biblical history.

Title: GENOVESINO : Natura e invenzione nella pittura del Seicento a Cremona
Author: Frangi, Francesco (et al)
Price: $45.00
ISBN: 9788899765644
Record created on 10/09/17
Description: Milano: Officina Libraria, 2017. 27cm., pbk., 224pp., 84 color illus. Exhibition held at Museo Civico Ala Ponzone, Cremona.

Summary: Genovesino - Natura e invenzione nella pittura del Seicento a Cremona è il catalogo della prima mostra monografica su Luigi Miradori detto il Genovesino, protagonista della pittura a Cremona per un ventennio intorno alla metà del XVII secolo. Una cinquantina di opere ne scandiscono il percorso: dagli esordi sotto la Lanterna, alla luce della vivacissima costellazione artistica che illumina il primo Seicento a Genova, agli anni stentati nella Piacenza farnesiana, che pure arricchiscono il suo bagaglio a contatto con i pittori della corte, fino al passaggio definitivo nella città del Torrazzo. L'approdo a Cremona, negli anni Trenta, segna anche il cambio di status sociale per il Genovesino, che diventa rapidamente il pittore più importante della città, grazie al rapporto con l'aristocrazia e in particolare con il governatore spagnolo, don Álvaro de Quiñones. Il pittore emerge per la sostenuta cifra qualitativa, per l'abilità ritrattistica e la scelta di soggetti dall'iconografia inedita e rara (in cui dimostra la conoscenza, tutt'altro che ovvia, dei testi letterari di Pedro Calderón de la Barca), privilegiando gli aspetti della caducità della vita in una formidabile varietà di Vanitas. Poi il gusto picaresco, quasi in parallelo con i bamboccianti romani, e i molteplici influssi, secondo una mappa sfaccettata di interessi visivi - Genova e Milano, le stampe nordiche, i pittori farnesiani, Guido Reni e Guercino - che danno risposte e aprono nuove prospettive di ricerca su uno dei pittori più suggestivi e affascinanti di un panorama sfiorato dal Mar Ligure e avvolto dalle nebbie della Lombardia spagnola.

Contents: Giochi di pennelli ; Finalmente Genovesino ; Le stagioni della critica, Marco Tanzi ; Le esperienze giovanili - Genova, Piacenza, Milano e lo studio delle stampe, Francesco Frangi ; A Cremona, Marco Tanzi ; I temi del Genovesino, Valerio Guazzoni ; Catalogo - La vita del Genovesino.

Description: New York: Levy Gorvy, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 104pp. illus.

Summary: Since 1967, renowned artists Gilbert & George have made themselves into their art, sacrificing their individual identities to devote themselves to a more democratic art practice, which they call “Art for All.” This catalogue presents their formative early work, The General Jungle or Carrying on Sculpting (1971). Comprised of twenty-three monumental, multi-panel charcoal-on-paper sculptures depicting the artists wandering streets and parks in London and inscribed with philosophical slogans, The General Jungle or Carrying on Sculpting was first exhibited at the Sonnabend Gallery in New York in 1971. Published in conjunction with Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition of the work, this fully illustrated catalogue features a newly commissioned essay by Michael Bracewell based on a recent interview with the artists, an original poem by Kostas Anagnopoulos, newspaper reviews from the inaugural exhibition at the Sonnabend Gallery, and a facsimile of the postal sculpture A Day in the Life of George & Gilbert, the sculptors (1971).

Description: Napoli: Arte'm, 2017. 24cm., pbk., 304pp. illus. English edition.

Summary: The first systematic monograph on the work of Luca Giordano was published fifty years ago. Based on a catalogue of over a thousand paintings and three hundred drawings known at the time, it marked the beginning of renewed attention paid to the artist's work. A second edition, greatly enlarged, followed in 1992 and the increasing interest in Giordano culminated in the exhibitions organized by Nicola Spinosa, Alfonso Pérez Sánchez and Wolfgand Prohaska which were originally curated in Naples and travelled, in various formats, to Vienna, Los Angeles and Madrid. A third volume appeared in 2003 in order to assess and incorporate all the information obtained from the large number of new studies. Lastly, in 2012 Giuseppe De Vito and I published, as a special piece of research on seventeenth century neapolitan painting, a volume entitled 'Luca Giordano giovane' which focused on the work done by the painter between 1650 and 1664; several chapters of this volume have become, in a revised version, the first chapters of the text presented here: the book, which is targeted at a wider public, includes the results of the latest research and reinterprets the artist's personality and work.

Title: Set in Stone: Lithography in Paris, 1815-1900: Prints and Posters from the Zimmerli Art Museum Collection

Description: Munich: Hirmer, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 208pp., 130 color plates. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Invented in the late eighteenth century, lithography introduced a new process and new opportunities for the creation and circulation of printed images. Artists, printers, and publishers embraced the new medium for its relative ease and economic advantages as compared with the established printmaking media of woodcut, engraving, and etching. Taking root in Paris after the fall of Napoleon’s empire, the art and industry of lithography grew in tandem with the city as it became Europe’s artistic and urban capital over the course of the nineteenth century. Lithographs played a distinct role in both documenting and advancing—not to mention satirizing—the various competing art movements of the period. Known for its collection of French prints and posters, the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University has rich holdings of lithographs made over the course of the 1800s, from lithography’s early years in Paris to the iconic color posters of the 1890s. This fully illustrated catalog showcases the highlights of the collection, offering insight into lithography’s fascinating role in the beginnings of modern mass media.

Description: Heule: Snoeck, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 224pp., ca. 300 illus. Exhibition held at Musée des Beaux-Arts, Rennes.

Summary: Formé à l’école des beaux-arts de Rennes, contemporain de Mathurin Méheut et de Jean-Julien Lemordant, Camille Godet est une figure artistique importante de la Bretagne des années 1920-1950. Après s’être engagé volontairement lors de la Première Guerre mondiale, il retourne dans la capitale bretonne où il obtient plusieurs commandes de peintures décoratives destinées à l’Opéra, à l’hôtel de ville et à la Maison du Peuple. Excellent dessinateur, coloriste d’une grande sensibilité, Godet s’investit également dans l’enseignement technique et artistique et participe au côté de l’architecte Emmanuel Le Ray à la création d’une école de préapprentissage à Rennes. En parallèle de sa riche carrière d’enseignant, l’artiste exécute, au cours de multiples pérégrinations, de très nombreuses vues de la Bretagne, qui comptent certainement parmi ses plus belles productions. Dans ce catalogue, est réunie pour la première fois une sélection importante et variée des travaux de l’artiste couvrant toute sa carrière. La découverte ou la redécouverte de ses œuvres impose aujourd’hui Godet comme l’un des meilleurs dessinateurs de sa génération en Bretagne et comme l’un des plus beaux témoins de sa région natale.

Title: A Shared Elegy : Elijah Gowin, Emmet Gowin, Osamu James Nakagawa, Takayuki Ogawa
Author:
Price: $50.00
ISBN: 9780253032515
Record created on 11/02/17
Description: Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2017. 29cm., hardcover, 112pp. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: A Shared Elegy presents two pairs of photographers connected by family ties. Osamu James Nakagawa and his uncle, Takayuki Ogawa, and Elijah Gowin and his father, Emmet Gowin, present unique but overlapping visions recording family histories. Nakagawa, like his uncle, Ogawa, grew up in Japan and draws upon his country's traditions and the practice of honoring elders; family heritage and home in Virginia have inspired the Gowins to make photographs that depict the intimate and hallowed nature of the world. These photographs compel us to reflect and consider our place in the cycle of life. A collaboration between the Grunwald Gallery and the Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University, this exhibition catalogue juxtaposes rich imagery with discussions about the artists and their aesthetic approaches to photography.

Description: Bielefeld: Kehrer, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 130pp. illus. Exhibition held at Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden. English-German text.

Summary: Hardly any other contemporary artist has devoted himself to searching for traces left behind by different ways of life in the 19th and 20th centuries as the Canadian Rodney Graham (b. 1949). Since the 1970s, he has been working on a rhizome-like, conceptual oeuvre that has never shied away from new jumps in time or genre. His work combines film, photography, installation, performance, painting, literature, and music. Graham, who, along with artists such as Jeff Wall or Stan Douglas, belongs to the »Vancouver School«, appropriates styles, trends, and discourses from the era of romanticism through to post-modernity, commenting or expanding on them or rethinking them with an understated irony. This book, designed in close co-operation with the artist, accompanies the exhibition at Museum Frieder Burda. It presents Graham’s 36 photo light boxes from 2000 to the present, among them key works like the Newspaper Man. The central focus is on the manifold ways in which Graham has staged himself. He always gives the impression of a melancholy time traveler, a modern-day Buster Keaton, negotiating the trials and tribulations of modern culture in various guises and in doing so, slipping into the role of producer, observer or mediator.

Description: Los Angeles: Getty Publications, 2018. 25cm., pbk., 112pp. illus.

Summary: No thinker in the West has had a wider and more sustained influence than the ancient Greek philosopher Plato. From philosophy to drama, religion to politics, it is difficult to find a current cultural or social phenomenon that is not in some aspect indebted to the famous philosopher and the Platonic tradition. It should come as no surprise that contemporary artists continue to engage with and respond to the ideas of Plato. Accompanying an exhibition at the Getty Villa, this book brings together eleven renowned artists working in a variety of media all of whom have acknowledged the role of Plato in their artistic process. Featuring candid interviews with the artists, this volume begins with an essay by the critic and curator Donatien Grau that contextualizes Plato in antiquity and in the present day. Contemporary art, Grau demonstrates, is Platonism stripped bare, and it allows us to reconsider Plato's philosophy as a deeply human construct, one that remains highly relevant today.

Summary: Impressionism is often considered the final nineteenth-century precursor to the radical experimentation of modernism. But every style has a precursor—so what movements paved the way for the atmospheric light, color, and composition characteristic of the impressionist works themselves? The Musée des Beaux Arts, Reims, offers a choice selection of nineteenth-century French paintings that trace the history of French art from the Romantics, to the School of Barbizon and the circle of Honfleur, up to Impressionism. This beautifully illustrated volume follows the artistic forbears that led up to the works of Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, by way of pastel palettes, loose brushwork, ordinary figures, and natural landscapes.

Description: Köln: König, 2017. 28cm., hardcover, 320pp., 320 illus., most in color. Exhibition held at Leopold Museum, Vienna. German-English text

Summary: This presentation at the Leopold Museum will be the most comprehensive retrospective exhibition of works by Ferdinand Hodler (1853–1918) in Austria since the artist’s resounding success at the 1904 Secession exhibition. An exponent of Symbolism and Jugendstil, a pioneer of Expressionism, and not least an innovator of monumental painting, Hodler was an important inspiration to numerous artists of Viennese Modernism, such as Gustav Klimt and Koloman Moser, as well as Oskar Kokoschka and Egon Schiele. The presentation focuses on the three main themes of Hodler’s art: landscapes from plein air painting to abstraction, portraits with an emphasis on female depictions, self-portraits, the haunting series of works accompanying the death of his lover Valentine Godé-Darel, as well as his eminent Symbolist figural compositions.

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, in association with the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 208pp., 138 illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: One of the greatest American painters of the 19th century, Winslow Homer (1836–1910) also maintained a deep engagement with photography throughout his career. Focusing on the important, yet often-overlooked, role that photography played in Homer’s art, this volume exposes Homer’s own experiments with the camera (he first bought one in 1882). It also explores how the medium of photography and the larger visual economy influenced his work as a painter, watercolorist, and printmaker at a moment when new print technologies inundated the public with images. Frank Goodyear and Dana Byrd demonstrate that photography offered Homer new ways of seeing and representing the world, from his early commercial engravings sourced from contemporary photographs to the complex relationship between his late-career paintings of life in the Bahamas, Florida, and Cuba and the emergent trend of tourist photography. The authors argue that Homer’s understanding of the camera’s ability to create an image that is simultaneously accurate and capable of deception was vitally important to his artistic practice in all media. Richly illustrated and full of exciting new discoveries, Winslow Homer and the Camera is a long-overdue examination of the ways in which photography shaped the vision of one of America’s most original painters.

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for The Menil Collection, 2018. 24cm., hardcover, 130pp., 50 illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Describing drawing as her “primary activity,” for over thirty years, Roni Horn (b. 1955) has created innovative and experimental works on paper marked by both conceptual and technical complexity. This carefully curated survey of the artist’s drawings from the early 1980s through 2016 explores works revolving around the mutability of identity and the fragility of place, time, and language; it also delves into Horn’s unique approach to mark-making and her process of cutting up and reassembling words and images. With sumptuous illustrations, this catalogue features an insightful look at Horn’s large-scale—sometimes over ten feet tall—works on paper; the artist’s series of cadmium red drawings; and her cut-and-pasted word drawings that combine well-known literary texts by Gertrude Stein and William Shakespeare with colloquial expressions.

Title: Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment: French Art from The Horvitz Collection
Author: Hyde, Melissa ; Mary D. Sheriff ; Alvin L. Clark, Jr
Price: $38.95
ISBN: 9780991262526
Record created on 10/02/17
Description: Boston: The Horvitz Collection, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 208pp., 145 illus., most in color.

Summary: Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment: French Art from The Horvitz Collection is primarily an exhibition of drawings, but will include pastels, paintings and sculptures selected from one of the world’s best private collections of French drawings. The exhibition will feature more than 150 works by many of the most prominent artists of the eighteenth and early nineteenth-century, including Antoine Watteau, Nicolas Lancret, François Boucher, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, as well as lesser-known artists both male and female, such as Anne Vallayer-Coster, Gabrielle Capet, François-André Vincent, Philibert-Louis Debucourt. Ranging from spirited, improvisational sketches and figural studies, to highly finished drawings of exquisite beauty, the works included in the exhibition vary in terms of style, genre and period.

Becoming a Woman will be organized into thematic sections that address some of the most important and defining questions of women’s lives in the eighteenth century. These include: how the stages of a woman's life were measured; what cultural attitudes and conditions in France shaped how women were defined; what significant relations women formed with men; what social and familial rituals gave order to their lives; what pleasures they pursued; and what work they accomplished. The aim is to bring new insights to the questions of what it meant to be a woman in this period, by offering the first exhibition to focus specifically on representations of women of a broad range of ages and conditions.

The exhibition will offer fresh perspectives on a subject that still has direct relevance to our times, but that has not been the focus of a significant exhibition for decades. Through its conceptual framework, thematic organization and its emphasis on historical context, the exhibition will provide viewers opportunities to consider what issues pertaining to women’s lives seem to have changed or persisted through time and across space. Although the circumstances and the specifics have changed, many issues remain with us today and can still provoke contentious debates. Pay equity, reproductive rights, gender-discrimination, violence against women, work-family balance, the ‘plight’ of the alpha-female, and the devaluation of the stay-at-home mom, are but a few of the women’s issues that are still hotly contested in the media, in cultural production of all kinds, in politics, and in public and private life.

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, 368pp., 315 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Peacock in the Desert traces the evolution of royal identity in the kingdom of Marwar-Jodhpur in southwestern Rajasthan from the 17th century to the establishment of independence after 1947, presenting the area as a microcosm of India’s extraordinarily vibrant culture. An international team of contributors has contextualized these regional narratives in relation to external—and even global—forces. The book thus offers a new perspective on the acquisition and commissioning of objects through patronage, diplomacy, matrimonial alliances, trade, and conquest. It sheds new light on the influential role of women at the royal courts and examines monarchies as lenses onto cross-cultural relationships, the unrecognized roles of groups marginalized in earlier accounts, cultural heterodoxy, and large-scale multicultural exchange. Exploring these webs of connection, Peacock in the Desert makes a transformative contribution to scholarship. Its multidisciplinary approach to artistic and cultural exchange offers pathbreaking insights, adding crucial chapters to the story of India’s royal visual splendor.

Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for the Art Institute of Chicago, 2018. 27cm., hardcover, 227pp., 200 color illus.

Summary: In 1904 Danish silversmith Georg Jensen (1866–1935) founded one of the world’s most celebrated design companies. Famous for its signature silver tableware that combines gleaming sculptural forms with lush ornament, Jensen’s eponymous firm has stood at the forefront of domestic design for over a century by combining an innovative and experimental spirit with a commitment to traditional craftsmanship. Tracing the evolution of Georg Jensen silver from its place in the company’s initial emergence through its continuing role as a touchstone for the global identity of Danish design, this book examines the creative processes and business practices behind Jensen’s stunning bowls, pitchers, coffee services, and other domestic objects. Lavishly illustrated with works ranging in style from organic to industrial, Georg Jensen is full of new insights gleaned from the company’s own archives and situates Jensen’s work in the broader context of 20th-century design. This unprecedented study includes scholarly essays by Alison Fisher, Maggie Taft, and Thomas C. Thulstrup that delve into the significant and continuing impact of Georg Jensen silver on modern domestic taste.
