Title: TERRY ADKINS The Smooth, the Cut, and the Assembled
Author: Gaines, Charles ; Michael Brenson
Price: $40.00
ISBN: 9781944379216
Record created on 06/18/18
Description: New York: Levy Gorvy, 2018. 26cm., hardcover, 96pp., 47 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: The work of American sculptor and musician Terry Adkins (1953–2014) often started with a theme or idea, illuminated by sculptural components that sometimes housed a performative element. The performative and sculptural aspects of his practice evolved in tandem, and utilized materials that had likely served another purpose, be they instruments, materials from his printmaking experiences or locally sourced items. This catalog accompanies Lévy Gorvy's first solo exhibition of Adkins' works, exploring the materiality of his sculptures. The exhibition was curated by Charles Gaines, a celebrated artist and longtime friend and collaborator of Adkins', who contributes an essay to this publication that explores the experience of viewing Adkins' sculptures. Also included are an essay by Michael Brenson and newly commissioned poetry by Robin Coste Lewis.

Description: New York: Guggenheim Museum Publications, 2018. 29cm., hardcover, 244pp., 220 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: When Swedish artist Hilma af Klint died in 1944 at the age of 81, she left behind more than 1,000 paintings and works on paper that she had kept largely private during her lifetime. Believing the world was not yet ready for her art, she stipulated that it should remain unseen for another 20 years. But only in recent decades has the public had a chance to reckon with af Klint's radically abstract painting practice-one which predates the work of Vasily Kandinsky and other artists widely considered trailblazers of modernist abstraction. Her boldly colorful works, many of them large-scale, reflect an ambitious, spiritually informed attempt to chart an invisible, totalizing world order through a synthesis of natural and geometric forms, textual elements and esoteric symbolism. Accompanying the first major survey exhibition of the artist's work in the United States, Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future represents her groundbreaking painting series while expanding recent scholarship to present the fullest picture yet of her life and art. Essays explore the social, intellectual and artistic context of af Klint's 1906 break with figuration and her subsequent development, placing her in the context of Swedish modernism and folk art traditions, contemporary scientific discoveries, and spiritualist and occult movements. A roundtable discussion among contemporary artists, scholars and curators considers af Klint's sources and relevance to art in the 21st century. The volume also delves into her unrealized plans for a spiral-shaped temple in which to display her art-a wish that finds a fortuitous answer in the Guggenheim Museum's rotunda, the site of the exhibition.

Description: New York: New Museum, 2018. 27 x 24cm., pbk., 128pp., 89 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: This catalog is the first monographic publication to survey the work of London-based artist John Akomfrah (born 1957) and accompanies his upcoming New Museum exhibition. Since the early 1980s, Akomfrah's moving image works have offered some of the most rigorous and expansive reflections on the culture of the black diaspora. Zoe Whitley and Aram Moshayedi survey Akomfrah's early work as part of Black Audio Film Collective. Tina Campt explores the sonic resonances of Akomfrah's installation The Unfinished Conversation (2012), which focuses on the life of cultural theorist Stuart Hall. Diana Nawi examines the recent work Transfigured Night (2013/2018), considering how Akomfrah continues to find new languages for film, representation and narrative. T.J. Demos and Okwui Enwezor look at Vertigo Sea (2015), Akomfrah's monumental work exploring the concept of the black Atlantic, using the work to articulate the visual and philosophical underpinnings of Akomfrah's work across his career.

Description: Charlottesville: University of Virginia Press, for the Massachusetts Historical Society, 2018. 27cm., pbk., 128pp. illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: As America’s first historical society, the Massachusetts Historical Society has collected family materials since 1791, including long-cherished pieces of clothing that were acquired alongside papers such as letters and diaries. Because of the different storage requirements for textiles and manuscripts, these survivors-many of them hundreds of years old-have largely been divorced from their familial ties. Fashioning the New England Family, an initiative encompassing a fall 2018 exhibition and this companion volume, reconnects the textiles with the associated stories carried in the family papers. Generously illustrated with full-color photographs of garments, fabrics, and accessories, including exquisite detail shots, the book creates a lasting overview of the exhibition but also delves into specific topics. The chapters cover a spam of more than three hundred years, tracing the history of New England clothing from the colonial seventeenth century, through the Revolutionary eighteenth century, and into the national nineteenth. In these pages, readers will find a fragment of Mayflower passenger Priscilla Mullins Alden’s dress; Governor John Leverett’s bloodstained buff coat, which saw battle in the English Civil War; and the luxurious Spitalfields green silk damask wedding dress and shoes that Rebecca Tailer Byles wore at her 1747 wedding in Boston. Across these examples and more, the text traces patterns of global production and local consumption and reuse, demonstrating how New Englanders used costume to establish their situation, especially in terms of class and gender, and also to express their political affiliations. Patriots and loyalists-Hancocks, Adamses, Dawses, and Olivers-make many appearances, as they are so well represented in the society's rich holdings. Manuscripts drawn from the collections-receipts, daybooks, account books, diaries-further amplify the historical insights, even at times making it possible to interpret the way in which a specific garment may have embodied one individual's sense of identity.

Description: Vancouver: Figure 1 Publishing, In partnership with the National Gallery of Canada, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, 256pp. prof. illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Laurent Amiot was born in Quebec City in 1764, and after a first apprenticeship stayed in Paris for five years, just before the French Revolution, to perfect his artistic training. He returned to his hometown in the spring of 1787, acquainted with the latest European stylistic trends, mastering the art of composition and possessing a solid technique. He opened a workshop in the Old City the following year, inaugurating a fruitful practice that spans five decades. This illustrated catalog, containing some 80 works on display, is published on the occasion of the presentation of the first retrospective devoted to the artist. Three chapters highlight the fundamental role of Amiot’s contribution to the development of art in Canada. The first two scrutinize his training, his practice, the operation of the workshop, the role of the collaborators and relationships with patrons. The third analyzes the work, trying to advance knowledge of the society in which it blossomed.

Description: Minneapolis-New York: Walker Art Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2018. 27cm., hardcover, 448pp., 550 color, 250 b&w illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: In Tehran, children walking home from school would scrape their pencils against the walls, tracing their paths through the city and chanting "follow this line." Siah Armajani (born 1939) recounts that this simple gesture speaks to the desire to mark one's presence in space. Siah Armajani: Follow This Line asks visitors to follow the artist across a shifting terrain, first within the context of pre-revolution Iran, and later, postwar and present-day America. Though Armajani is best known today for his works of public art—bridges, gazebos, reading rooms—located across the United States and Europe, this groundbreaking exhibition argues for a thoughtful reexamination of his studio as the site of a rich and generative practice. His works engage a range of references: from Persian calligraphy to the manifesto, letter and talisman; from poetry to mathematical equations and computer programming; from the abstract expressionist canvas to American vernacular architecture, Bauhaus design and Russian constructivism. Published to accompany Armajani's first major US retrospective, this catalog is his most comprehensive publication to date. Developed in close collaboration with the artist, it offers new scholarship on his six-decade-long career and also includes previously unpublished texts. Contributions by Nazgol Ansarinia, Sam Durant, Barbad Golshiri and Slavs and Tatars speak to Armajani's influence on a younger generation of artists based in the United States, Europe and the Middle East.

Title: Shape of Light : 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art
Author: Baker, Simon ; Emmanuelle De L’Ecotais (eds)
Price: $35.00
ISBN: 9781942884316
Record created on 05/25/18
Description: New York: DAP/Tate, 2018. 23cm., hardcover, 224pp., 180 color illus. Exhibition held at Tate Modern, London.

Summary: Shape of Light tells the intertwined stories of photography and abstract art from the early 20th century to the present day, looking at historic works in a variety of mediums from painting and sculpture to montage and kinetic installations. Beginning with the works of cubism and vorticism, it then highlights the key contributions of Bauhaus, constructivist and surrealist artists of the 1920s and 1930s. From there it proceeds to the "subjective photography" of the 1940s and 1950s, exploring the global scope of this movement through works by artists from Latin America and Asia, before considering the impact of photography on abstract expressionism, op art and minimalism in Europe and the US. From Man Ray and Alfred Stieglitz to major contemporary artists such as Barbara Kasten and Thomas Ruff, and culminating in extraordinary new work by Antony Cairns, Maya Rochat and Daisuke Yokota, Shape of Light brings to life the innovations of photographers over this period, showing how they responded and contributed to the development of abstraction.

Description: Philadelphia: Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 160pp., 100 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Amid a turn toward nativist politics in the United States, the work of Indian-born, New York–based artist Rina Banerjee (born 1963) seems particularly relevant, reflecting as it does the splintered experience of identity, tradition and culture prevalent in diasporic communities. Banerjee's fanciful sculptures are made from materials sourced throughout the world—in a single work one can find African tribal jewelry, feathers, light bulbs, Murano glass and South Asian antiques. Make Me a Summary of the World, the first in-depth examination of the artist's work, uses a selection of Banerjee's large-scale installations along with her sculptures and paintings to consider the artist's place in both American and global frameworks.

Description: Petersberg: Imhof, 2018. 27cm., hardcover, ca. 320pp., 310 illus. Exhibition held at Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf.

Summary: Nördlich der Alpen gilt Giovanni Battista Beinaschi (um 1634- 1688) noch als Geheimtipp, in Rom und Neapel wird der Künstler schon lange als virtuoser Maler gefeiert. Im Piemont geboren, ging Beinaschi früh nach Rom. Dort, und ab 1663 auch in Neapel, schmückte er zahlreiche Kirchen und schuf Gemälde für private Auftraggeber. Er überzeugt aber vor allem durch seine ausdrucksstarken Zeichnungen, mit denen er seine Ideen umsetzt. Auf grossformatigen Blättern vermitteln sein meisterhaftes Spiel mit Licht und Schatten, perspektivischen Verkürzungen und einer dynamischen Linienführung die Stimmung tiefsten Leidens, aber auch jene Überschwänglichkeit höchster Sinnenfreude, welche die Epoche des Barock zwischen Rom und Neapel so unverwechselbar macht. Erstmals sind in Düsseldorf etwa 70 dieser bislang unbekannten Zeichnungen aus dem Bestand der historischen Akademiesammlung zu sehen. Die Dauerleihgabe im Museum Kunstpalast bewahrt weltweit die umfangreichste Sammlung des Künstlers. Es erscheint ein reich bebilderter Bestandskatalog.

Title: BELLINI | MANTEGNA : Masterpieces face-to-face : The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple

Description: Milano: Silvana, 2018. 26cm., pbk., 144pp., 100 illus. Exhibition held at Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venezia. English text

Summary: Giovanni Bellini, ‘one of the great Italian poets’ in the words of Roberto Longhi, and Andrea Mantegna, he who ‘sculpted [the image] alive and real in his painting’ in the sonnet by Ulisse degli Aleotti, were two giants in the history of Western art – extremely distant in character, certainly, yet connected by deep family ties. Nicolosia – Jacopo Bellini’s daughter and thus half-sister to Giovanni – married Mantegna in 1453. This marriage engendered one of the most fascinating pictorial dialogues of the Quattrocento, as they both developed the motif of The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple. A pair of works exhibited side-by-side for the very first time, half a millennium after they were painted. An extraordinary event narrated down to the last detail in this volume, through a riveting analysis of the paintings themselves and of the relationship between the two artists.

Description: Boston: Museum of Fine Arts, 2018. 27cm., hardcover, 160pp., 75 color illus.

Summary: Developed during the mid-19th century in China, the bapo (or "eight brokens") painting genre combines ingeniously realistic depictions of antique documents, such as calligraphies, rubbings, paintings and pages from old books, sometimes alongside everyday contemporary ephemera, including advertisements, receipts and postmarked envelopes. The resulting, seemingly haphazard, overlapping compositions contain coded reflections on the decay of cultural traditions, or wishes for the recipient's good fortune. Widespread in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, bapo was never popular with the upper echelons of the Chinese art world, and as a result was never recorded in art-history texts or mentioned by cultural critics. It became a lost branch of Chinese art—almost completely forgotten for the past 60 years. This book explores the origins of bapo in Chinese visual culture and traces how it blossomed into an intriguing and inventive tradition in the hands of many artists.

Description: Fayetteville: University of Arkansas Press, 2018. 31cm., hardcover, 200p. illus. Exhibition held at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville.

Summary: Art for a New Understanding, an exhibition from Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art opening this October, seeks to radically expand and reposition the narrative of American art since 1950 by charting a history of the development of contemporary Indigenous art from the United States and Canada, beginning when artists moved from more regionally-based conversations and practices to national and international contemporary art contexts. This accompanying book documents and expands on the histories and themes of this exciting exhibition. This fully illustrated volume includes essays by art historians and historians and reflections by the artists included in the collection. Also included are key contemporary writings—from the 1950s onward—by artists, scholars, and critics, investigating the themes of transculturalism and pan-Indian identity, traditional practices conducted in radically new ways, displacement, forced migration, shadow histories, the role of personal mythologies as a means to reimagine the future, and much more. As both a survey of the development of Indigenous art from the 1950s to the present and a consideration of Native artists within contemporary art more broadly, Art for a New Understanding expands the definition of American art and sets the tone for future considerations of the subject. It is an essential publication for any institution or individual with an interest in contemporary Native American art, and an invaluable resource in ongoing scholarly considerations of the American contemporary art landscape at large.

Description: Milan: Silvana, 2018. 29cm., pbk., 288pp., 170 illus. Exhibition held at Musee Fesch, Ajaccio

Summary: Venise au XVIIe siècle devient le théâtre où circulent des artistes d’origines géographiques diverses, chacun avec son apport personnel au développement d’une école profondément hétérogène, caractérisée par l’osmose d’énergies locales et étrangères. Ce sont ces « rencontres » qui donnent naissance à l’originalité de la culture artistique du Seicento vénitien. Le fil conducteur de l’ouvrage est justement la confrontation et les connections entre les maîtres locaux et les étrangers : de Francesco Maffei à Pietro Liberi, du Génois Bernardo Strozzi au Florentin Sebastiano Mazzoni, du Flamand Giusto Le Court au Hongrois Michele Fabris, pour n’en citer que quelques-uns. Il est possible d’explorer les échanges entre les artistes et le succès particulier de certains sujets qui semblent attirer l’attention des commanditaires : visions extatiques, héros ou héroïnes tirés de la Bible et de l’Antiquité, portraits et autoportraits, allégories, thèmes macabres ou privilégiant la mort violente. Le choix des œuvres (plus de soixante en comptant peintures, sculptures, dessins) reflète une transformation cruciale qui a eu lieu à Venise au XVIIe siècle dans le milieu artistique : c’est-à-dire, la réduction des commandes publiques (surtout de la part de l’État) et l’augmentation parallèle de la production de tableaux et de sculptures « de chambre » destinée au collectionnisme privé et à un marché qui commence à prendre des proportions internationales. Les œuvres choisies, parmi lesquelles certaines n’ont encore jamais été exposées, proviennent de Venise, mais surtout des musées français, qui possèdent de nombreux témoignages de grande qualité d’artistes vénitiens de l’époque baroque.

Description: Potomac: Glenstone Museum, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 208pp., 95 color illus.

Summary: Celebrated for her singular contributions to 20th-century sculpture, drawing, painting, printmaking, installation and writing, French-born American artist Louise Bourgeois' (1911-2010) explorations of the human condition originated from her own lived experience. "My goal is to relive a past emotion," Bourgeois explained. "My art is an exorcism." Psychologically, emotionally and often sexually charged, Bourgeois' works intermingle the abstract and corporeal, the voluptuous and the distressing, to striking effect. Louise Bourgeois: To Unravel a Torment accompanies the first exhibition of the artist's work at Glenstone Museum, and features more than 30 major works drawn from the museum's collection. From her early wooden Personages to her large hanging sculptures, from suites of drawings and prints to textile works and her immersive Cells, To Unravel a Torment surveys Bourgeois' career through selected examples from her enormous body of work. Bourgeois was also a prolific writer, matching her sculptural language with reams of psychoanalytic musings on repression, symbolism and material. To Unravel a Torment also brings together never-before-published diary entries by the artist, annotated by Bourgeois scholar Philip Larratt-Smith, a contribution by art historian Briony Fer and an introduction by Emily Wei Rales, founder and director of Glenstone Museum.

Description: London: Royal Academy of Arts, 2018. 24cm., hardcover, 80pp. illus.

Summary: When Bob and Roberta Smith, pseudonym of British artist Patrick Brill, was elected as a member of the Royal Academy of Arts in 2013, he had a more complex relationship with the institution than most. He remembered well the feeling of suspense as his parents, both artists, waited to find out if their submissions had been accepted for the annual Summer Exhibition. In The Secret to a Good Life, Bob and Roberta Smith introduces his mother, Deirdre Borlase, and her encounters with the often sexist and classist art establishment of postwar Britain. Her story has led her son to ruminate on the challenge art can pose to authority, as well as to reminisce on his experience of growing up in a household with two painters for parents. In the colorful signwriting style for which he is best known, Bob and Roberta Smith tells a poignant, witty family story and answers the question: What is the secret to a good life?.

AA Bronson, the last living member of General Idea, was instrumental in the conception and design of this volume.

Summary: From the remote shores of Rapa Nui to the dense rainforest of Papua New Guinea, the islands of the Pacific are home to some of the most culturally diverse populations on the planet. The region embraces an extraordinary range of art forms, from delicate shell ornaments to spectacularly decorated canoes and meeting houses. These have fascinated outsiders since the exploratory voyages of Captain Cook, the first of which commenced 250 years ago in 1768, and they went on to entrance Gauguin and a host of other European artists. This volume accompanies a major survey in London and Paris of art from Oceania. It brings together the most up-to-date scholarship by the leading experts in the field, encompassing a dazzling array of objects from the region, including many that have never been published before. Also included are many works that have historically been overlooked, such as painted and woven textiles, elaborate wicker assemblages and eloquently sculpted vessels, alongside works by artists working in Oceania today. Objects of great aesthetic beauty, these artworks are the product of a complex web of social, mythological and historical influences.

Title: CANALETTO 1697-1768
Author: Bozena, Anna Kowalczyk
Price: $55.00
ISBN: 9788836639328
Record created on 05/17/18
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2018. 25cm., hardcover, 256pp., 110 color illus. Exhibition held at Palazzo Braschi, Rome. English edition.

Summary: Canaletto's name is inextricably linked to the vedute of Venice that played a key role in the "myth" of La Serenissima - images that met with instant, resounding success, sparking the imagination of British tourists on the Grand Tour. But Canaletto is so much more. He began making a name for himself as a painter at the same time as Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, tackling his first vedute of Venice and capricci with the impetuous brushstrokes and dramatic lighting of a stage designer, as he had been in his youth. From the very start, Canaletto showed himself to be an indefatigable experimenter, constantly in search of new subjects, compositions, techniques and effects. He was a humble artisan, working ceaselessly; a supreme draughtsman and magnificent chronicler of city festivals; an inventor of stunningly exquisite capricci; an impetuous painter of Roman ruins, capable of infusing strokes of genius into the genre carried out in Rome by Giovanni Paolo Pannini. And, last but not least, a witness to eighteenth-century English civilization. 250 years after Canaletto's death, this volume studies about seventy works - both paintings and drawings - loaned by public and private collections from all over the world. Selected for their beauty as well as their significance along the artist's journey, they represent an in-depth, modernised investigation into his philosophy and method, his techniques and rapport with the reality he depicted. The works gathered here tell the life and creative skills of one of the greatest artists of eighteenth-century Europe, whose pictorial genius revolutionised the genre of the veduta, raising it to the same level as history and figure painting - indeed, elevating it to embody the scientific and artistic ideals of the Age of Enlightenment.

Description: Munich: Hirmer, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, ca. 300pp., 270 color illus. Exhibition held at Centraal Museum, Utrecht (then to Alte Pinakothek, Munich). English edition.

Summary: At the start of the Dutch Golden Age, Rome was the centre of the world. Young painters from across Europe made their way to the Eternal City, where - so the rumour went - the painter Caravaggio had caused a revolution. A new realism in the art of painting, unparalleled drama, grand gestures and mysteries of light: everyone wanted to see it for themselves. Among them were the Utrecht painters Dirck van Baburen, Hendrick ter Brugghen and Gerard van Honthorst. During the heyday of European Caravaggism, between 1600-1630, some 2700 artists were listed in Rome, of which 572 were foreigners. They all visited the same churches and viewed the same collections. They conversed with each other, and of course they painted! And they painted the same themes, used the same sources of inspiration, but the works they produced were nonetheless very different. Utrecht, Caravaggio and Europe examines precisely these differences between the European followers of Caravaggio. By presenting the works on the basis of themes, it is immediately evident how each artist remained rooted in his own cultural background. Utrecht, Caravaggio and Europe brings the Rome of 1600 to 1630 to Utrecht. Presenting seventy masterpieces, this exhibition is the first to display the Utrecht Caravaggists alongside their European counterparts: the Italian painters Caravaggio, Bartolomeo Manfredi, Cecco da Caravaggio, Giovanni Antonio Galli (Lo Spadarino), Giovanni Serodine, Orazio Borgianni and Orazio Gentileschi, the Spaniard Jusepe de Ribera, the French Nicolas Régnier, Nicolas Tournier, Simon Vouet and Valentin de Boulogne, and the Flemish Gerard Seghers and Theodoor Rombouts. The exhibition comprises over sixty loan pieces, from museum and private collections across Europe and the United States, including the Vatican Museums, the Louvre (Paris), the Galleria degli Uffizi (Florence), the National Gallery of Art of London and the National Gallery of Art of Washington DC, but also from churches in Rome. The paintings by the Utrecht Caravaggists are so recognisably Dutch, because they took Caravaggio's realism one step further. Baburen and Ter Brugghen also painted the ugly sides of reality: monstrous noses, rotten teeth, dirty fingernails. Ter Brugghen even has the questionable honour of having painted the ugliest but also the most realistic baby in seventeenth century art. Gerard van Honthorst was very successful in Rome. Honthorst's invention of illuminating his scenes from a hidden, indirect source of light became so famous that he was nicknamed 'Gherardo delle Notti': Gerard of the Nights. Just like Dirck van Baburen, he received important commissions for altar pieces, and works by both artists were purchased by important collectors such as Cardinal Giustiniani, who was also a patron of Caravaggio. Their paintings were hung in the halls of his palazzo, next to those of the Italian, Flemish, French and Spanish painters. The exhibitions follows the three Utrecht artists on their Roman adventure, demonstrates how this affected their work, and displays their most accomplished pieces.

Description: Antwerp: Fonds Mercator, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, ca. 192pp., 110 color illus. Exhibition held at Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris. French text.

Summary: Né en 1571, Michelangelo Merisi, dit Caravage, va révolutionner la peinture italienne du XVIIe siècle par le réalisme de ses toiles et par son usage novateur du clair-obscur, et devenir le plus grand peintre naturaliste de son temps. Le catalogue d'exposition sera consacré à la carrière romaine de Caravage et au milieu artistique dans lequel il a évolué : comme les études les plus récentes l'ont montré, le peintre entretenait des relations étroites avec les cercles intellectuels romains de l'époque. L'exposition s'intéressera ainsi aux rapports de Caravage avec les collectionneurs et les artistes, mais aussi avec les poètes et les érudits de son temps, liens qui n'ont jamais fait l'objet d'une exposition. Il s'agira tout d'abord d'évoquer la vie à Rome au début du XVIIe siècle, en montrant l'activité des grands ateliers dans lesquels Caravage fait ses premières armes. C'est aussi à cette période qu'il fait des rencontres qui vont être déterminantes pour sa carrière, celles du marquis Giustiniani (1564 - 1637) et du cardinal Francesco Maria del Monte (1549 - 1627) : ils deviennent deux des plus grands mécènes de Caravage et lui adressent de nombreuses commandes. Évoquer ces collections, fréquentées par les amateurs et les artistes, permettra aussi de montrer l'influence de Caravage et des thèmes qu'il choisit sur les peintres européens. Après les amis et les soutiens de Caravage, cet ouvrage s'attachera à présenter ses ennemis et rivaux présents sur la scène artistique romaine de ce temps. Caravage, qui ne voulait pas être imité et qui le fut pourtant malgré lui, s'est parfois opposé à ses contemporains, à l'occasion de discussions, de procès, et même de rixes. Cette carrière romaine s'achève en 1606, quand, au cours d'une discussion très animée, Caravage tue Ranuccio Tomassoni. Condamné à mort suite à cette rixe fatale, Caravage est contraint à l'exil, mais ses plus fidèles mécènes continuent à s'intéresser à son destin. À Zagarolo, non loin de Rome, c'est sous la protection de la famille Colonna que Caravage peint Les Pèlerins d'Emmaüs, un chef-d'oeuvre qui témoigne d'une nouvelle démarche stylistique, et une mystérieuse Madeleine en extase.

Title: MARY CASSATT : An American Impressionist in Paris
Author: Mathews, Nancy Mowll ; Pierre Curie (eds)
Price: $45.00
ISBN: 9780300236521
Record created on 03/12/18
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for Mercatorfonds, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 176pp., 170 illus. Exhibition held at Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris. English text.

Summary: Acclaimed and beloved for her paintings of women and children in intimate, informal settings, Mary Cassatt (1844–1926) was the only American artist to exhibit with the French Impressionists in Paris. Cassatt celebrated women in an age of rapid female advancement, and she explained her affinity for depicting children, saying they are “natural and truthful,” two of the qualities that her generation of artists was energetically pursuing. This beautiful book, edited by a preeminent Cassatt scholar, brings together more than sixty important works that span the entirety of Cassatt’s career. Included here are works across all media in which Cassatt worked—oils, pastels, drawings, and prints—as well as numerous documentary sources that combine to convey a full and nuanced account of Cassatt as an American artist in Paris. Some of these works, such as Little Girl in a Blue Armchair (1878) and Woman Bathing (1890–91) are familiar; others are from private collections and have been reproduced rarely, if ever. The result is a fresh look at Cassatt that reaffirms her importance to French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, celebrates her resilience in the male-dominated worlds of French and American art, and demonstrates her ability to reconcile the different realms in which she lived and worked.

Summary: “Stadium” is the theme chosen for the Chilean Pavilion at the Sixteenth International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. The intent is to capture the story of the National Stadium in Santiago—both a building and a city for a day. On September 29, 1979, 40,000 families filled the stadium’s seats; around 250,000 people from all over the country’s capital. The occasion was the signing of documents that transformed these people into proprietors. Prior to the event, the press circulated a list of names of the people summoned to the stadium — beneficiaries of “Operación Sitio,” a public housing program — together with a plan that showed the stadium subdivided into boroughs. This book tells the dual story of the stadium and the exhibition at the Chilean Pavilion, interwoven with the Architecture Exhibition’s broad theme of “Freespace.” The book is organized into four chapters, each featuring short essays and illustrations, including drawings, plans, and photographs. In the making of the exhibition, the stadium’s floorplan no longer demarcates the stands but visualizes another city marginalized from its center. Each section is extruded as a block, engraved with the urban fabric of the fragment of the city from which it originates. A timely contribution to a continuing conversation, Stadium will be welcomed by architects, urban planners, and those who provide housing. (La Biennale di Venezia - 16. Mostra Internazionale di Architettura)

Title: I giardini del duca : Luoghi di delizia dai Montefeltro ai Della Rovere
Author: Cerboni Baiardi, Anna (et al)
Price: $55.00
ISBN: 9788836639564
Record created on 03/30/18
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2018. 28cm., pbk., 200pp., 150 illus. Exhibition held at Palazzo Ducale, Urbino.

Summary: I duchi di Urbino hanno dimostrato un particolare interesse nei confronti del giardino, luogo fondamentale della vita e dell’estetica della corte, progettando in ogni loro residenza urbana e suburbana splendidi e differenti spazi all’aperto. Questo contributo consentirà di meglio comprendere lo sviluppo di un aspetto culturale che ha posto il ducato urbinate anche in questo campo all’altezza del confronto con le altre corti italiane del Rinascimento. Ci si renderà conto che lo sviluppo dell’idea di giardino è strettamente legata alle diverse personalità dei duchi ma anche delle duchesse che, come nel caso di Leonora Gonzaga o Lucrezia d’Este, hanno portato in questi luoghi l’esperienza di altri centri. Il volume intende accompagnare il lettore nella scoperta dei giardini ducali che non esistono più, come quelli perduti di alcune ville pesaresi o l’urbinate giardino di Santa Lucia, ma anche di rilanciare l’attenzione su realtà ancora fruibili come il giardino pensile del palazzo ducale di Urbino o i giardini dell’Imperiale e di villa Miralfiore a Pesaro. Per la prima volta vengono posti a confronto su questo tema alcuni tra i principali centri del ducato, dando vita a un percorso che prende avvio con i giardini di Urbino e di Gubbio, da dove tutto è cominciato, e prosegue con Fossombrone, Pesaro e Urbania; iniziando con Federico di Montefeltro (1422-1482) e concludendosi con l’ultimo duca, Francesco Maria II Della Rovere (1549-1631). Tutti i luoghi considerati hanno offerto il loro contributo alla storia del giardino formale all’italiana, dove la natura, organizzata secondo precisi schemi, restituisce il gusto delle diverse epoche.

Partendo dal crocifisso ligneo di Matelica giunto eccezionalmente intatto fino a noi, viene presentata in queste pagine una rassegna di opere di straordinaria fattura, in particolare sculture lignee, che segnano il passaggio fra il linguaggio figurativo romanico e quello gotico. Il volume accoglie i testi di Andrea De Marchi, Alessandro Delpriori, Fulvio Cervini.

Record created on 03/19/18
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2018. 28cm., pbk., 240pp., 80 color illus. Exhibition held at Piancoteca, Ascoli Piceno.

Summary: l volume intende rendere omaggio e restituire una visione completa ed esaustiva dell'arte di Nicolò Filotesio, meglio conosciuto come Cola dell'Amatrice, maestro dell'arte italiana del '500, che ad Ascoli ha lasciato un immenso patrimonio pittorico durante i suoi quarant'anni di permanenza. Attraverso i puntuali contributi critici e il ricco corredo iconografico, il volume ripercorre l'interno percorso artistico di Cola, che da Amatrice, città natale, si snoda in luoghi particolarmente emblematici, come l'Abbazia di Farfa lungo la Salaria, dove esegue le prime tavole, Roma, dove è presente nel 1513, e poi gli Appennini, l'Aquila, Perugia, Siena, Urbino. Le sue opere sono messe in dialogo con un corpus di capolavori - Raffaello, Pinturicchio, Perugino, Crivelli, Luca Signorelli, Pietro Vannini, Filippino Lippi - che testimoniano gli studi e le influenze sulle quali l'artista ha costruito il proprio universo creativo. Attraverso l'opera di Cola, il catalogo racconta la storia di una terra che fu un crocevia di scambi economici e culturali, e che, drammaticamente ferita dal sisma del 2016, ha dovuto affrontare questioni non secondarie legate al recupero e alla ricostruzione della memoria, e alla valorizzazione del suo grande patrimonio.

Summary: American artist Dan Colen (1979) emerged onto the New York art scene in the early 2000s alongside artists such as Dash Snow and Ryan McGinley. Drawing on graffiti and vernacular culture as artistic influences in his paintings and installations, and living legendarily hard, Colen was described by The Guardian as the "bad boy of post-pop New York." Brilliantly witty, shocking, poignant and nihilistic, Colen's art presents a portrait of contemporary America and is, in part, an investigation into the act of producing and looking at art. Dan Colen: Sweet Liberty, published to accompany Colen's solo exhibition at Newport Street Gallery in London, spans 15 years of the artist's career, including new works, and includes large-scale installation images of the exhibition. The book features a foreword by Damien Hirst and an essay by curator Annie Godfrey Larmon.

Summary: Around the middle of the eighteenth century, Europe was enthralled by the archaeological excavations then taking place in Italy. Artists and young aristocrats from across the continent travelled there to see the country’s classical Roman and trendsetting contemporary art for themselves. The ‘Grand Tour’ often lasted many months. Among those who made it were Goethe and the ‘Count and Countess of the North’ (the later Russian Tsar Paul I and his wife). In Rome, they met renowned artists like Pompeo Batoni, Anton Raphael Mengs, Hubert Robert, Angelica Kauffmann and – most famous of all – Antonio Canova. In short, all the great names of eighteenth-century Neoclassicism. Classic Beauties allows readers to share the adventures of the ‘Grand Tourists’ and meet the leading Neoclassical artists of the day. Their accounts and the book’s many illustrations, both of works of art and of contemporary tourist attractions, paint a vivid picture of a period in which the quest for classical beauty and the ideal nude was at the forefront of people’s minds.

Contents: Noble Simplicity and Youthful Grace ; Journey into Classicism ; Neoclassicism at the End of the Eighteenth Century ; Pompeo Batoni ; Anton Raphael Mengs ; Hubert Robert ; The Quest for Ideal Beauty ; The Count and Countess of the North- A Journey through Europe ; The Visit to the Dutch Republic by the Count and Countess of the North ; Revelling in the Beauties of the South ; Angelica Kauffmann ; Antonio Canova ; Catalogue.

Record created on 05/01/18
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2018. 24cm., pbk., 64pp., 20 illus. Exhibition held at Palazzetto Baviera, Senigallia.

Summary: Questo piccolo – ma solo per dimensioni – capolavoro correggesco raffigurante Sant’Agata era arrivato a Senigallia nella seconda metà dell’Ottocento, portato in dono da un gentiluomo inglese al celebre medico Angelo Zotti (Imola 1833 - Senigallia 1884), luminare che gli salvò la vita. La tavola passò, attraverso diverse vicende ereditarie, in possesso di due nobili sorelle residenti a Fano. È qui che nel 2003 la vide Dario Fo, interpretando il volto della santa come un ritratto di Jeronima, moglie bellissima del Correggio, ed è proprio grazie all’attore premio Nobel che il dipinto venne restaurato e pubblicato, arrivando oggi a essere esposto al pubblico. Il volume è costruito per immagini e testi che raccontano il Correggio e che conducono, attraverso confronti stilistici e documentari, alla tavola con la Sant’Agata, dimostrando come l’espressione del viso della modella ritratta dall’artista sia stata poi impiegata, nelle sue peculiarità, in grandi e famose tele – sacre e profane – del “Pittor delle Grazie”.

Summary: Victoria Crowe is one of Britain’s most vital and original figurative painters. Here, Duncan Macmillan explores the exceptional skill of this remarkable artist’s portraits and Victoria Crowe, herself, contributes many insightful accounts of her own thoughts and perceptions as each work developed. This book also tells Crowe’s own story – both professional and personal – through her art. She has developed an approach to portraiture that seeks to do more than record the outward appearance of a person: she aims to represent something of the inner life. With 80 illustrations, the portraits include the artist’s family, composer Ronald Stevenson, pioneer medical scientist Dame Janet Vaughan, poet Kathleen Raine, actor Graham Crowden, psychiatris Professor Sir Peter Higgs and many others.

Description: New York: Gregory R. Miller, 2018. 28 x 24cm., hardcover, 216pp., 360 color illus. Exhibition held at Crystal Bridges Museum of American , Bentonville.

Summary: In 2014, American painter Cynthia Daignault (born 1978) traveled around the entire outside border of the USA, stopping roughly every 25 miles to paint the view before her. The resulting monumental work, Light Atlas, is a grand portrait of America in 360 canvases that reveal slow shifts in hue, atmosphere, depth, industry and economy. This catalog reproduces every painting of Light Atlas at 1:1 scale, in a filmic retelling of her journey and of the country she circled. Daignault weaves a dense narrative, intercutting parallel stories of the journey, the creation of the work and the grander fiction of America itself. New essays were commissioned for the book by celebrated historians and writers Alexander Nemerov and David Campany, approaching the piece both in its relationship to the history of painting and photography.

Summary: This is the first retrospective on the paintings of New York-based artist David Deutsch (born 1943), spanning 50 years. Deutsch has used a variety of techniques—painting, sculpture, photography, drawing and mixed media—to create artwork that addresses complicated themes of the interior and exterior. From voyeuristic nighttime aerial photography to painterly abstracted landscapes, Deutsch wrestles with how we occupy our lives and the tension that exists as we navigate paths through time and memory. Most recently, Deutsch has focused primarily on painting large-scale monotypes, about which Roberta Smith of the New York Times notes, "Mr. Deutsch's paintings are grown-up, complex of space and surface, and rich in notions of human interaction or the lack thereof; voyeurism and solitude; and often an ambiguous ominousness." This extensive monograph provides a thorough look at a body of work that is at once innovative, familiar and provocative.

Title: Paradise is Now : Palm Trees in Art
Author: Ellis, Bret Easton (et al)
Price: $59.95
ISBN: 9783775744461
Record created on 06/03/18
Description: Stuttgart: Hatje Cantz, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, 160pp., 130 illus. English-German text. Exhibition held at Robert Grunenberg & Salon Dahlmann, Berlin.

Summary: For more than two thousand years palm trees have been extraordinarily popular in both the East and the West. Regardless of continent, religion, or culture, palms tell stories of wealth, peace, and salvation. No other motif conveys this promise of good fortune and happiness as convincingly as the palm tree does. Omnipresent in advertising and social media, it conjures up notions of luxury, the jet set, and eternal sunshine in the secular world, representing a modern Garden of Eden. Nor are visual arts resistant to its visual allure and metaphorical power. Keeping this rich cultural heritage in mind, the companion catalogue to the exhibition Paradise is Now shows the many ways that palm trees are depicted in contemporary art. But what is behind the popularity of this emblem? Which layers of meaning and what kinds of contradictions are revealed in the wake of this artistic exploration? Besides texts by Bret Easton Ellis, Robert Grunenberg, Leif Randt, and Norman Rosenthal, the publication features works by John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers, Rodney Graham, Secundino Hernández, David Hockney, Alicja Kwade, Sigmar Polke, Ed Ruscha, and Rirkrit Tiravanija.

Description: London: Whitechapel Gallery, 2018. 29cm., pbk., 192pp., 200 color illus. Exhibition catalogue.

Summary: Since 1995, artists Michael Elmgreen (born 1961) and Ingar Dragset (born 1969) have been producing a body of work at the intersection of art, design and architecture, drawing on subjects as diverse as social politics, personal relationships and institutional critique. Their installations and sculptures reconfigure the everyday with subversive wit and tongue-in-cheek melancholy. Among their best-known works are Prada Marfa (2005), a full-scale replica of a Prada Boutique in the Texan desert; Powerless Structures, Fig. 101 (2012), a giant bronze boy on a rocking horse created for the Fourth Plinth in London's Trafalgar Square; and Death of a Collector (2009) for the Venice Biennale, featuring a life-size swimming pool complete with a besuited floating body. This catalog journeys through the installations conceived for their first major UK exhibition.

Title: Auferweckung am Arno : CIRO FERRIS "Wunder des hl. Zenobius"
Author: Swoboda, Gudrun ; Ina Slama
Price: $10.95
ISBN: 9783990201763
Record created on 07/27/18
Description: Wien: Kunsthistorisches Museum, 2018. 25cm., pbk., 26pp. illus. Exhibition catalogue. German text.

Summary: The Kunsthistorisches Museum is showing The Miracle of Saint Zenobius, a little-known masterpiece by the versatile artist Ciro Ferri (Rome, 1633-1689). Ferri was the most important pupil and collaborator of Pietro da Cortona, one of the inventors of the Roman High Baroque. This versatile painter, sculptor and producer of architectural drawings worked mainly in Rome, Florence and Bergamo, where he greatly influenced young artists. Recent research has revealed that Ferri’s monumental picture boasts a highly prestigious provenance: it was painted for Principe Leopoldo de’Medici, the family’s most important patron and collector in the seventeenth century, and presented in the Palazzo Pitti in 1665. Family connections between the Medici and the Habsburgs (i.e. dynastic marriages) brought the painting to Vienna in the seventeenth century. The composition depicts St Zenobius, the first bishop of Florence who was already venerated as the city’s patron saint in the Middle Ages. Ferri shows him stopping during a procession to listen to the pleas of a woman to bring back to life the youth lying before her on the ground. A careful iconographic analysis carried out in connection with this exhibition revealed that Ferri was intimately familiar with, and skilfully interpreted, the legend that forms the basis for his composition. Working for an erudite and cultured patron, he knew that subtle references to other paintings would be both understood and welcome, and his solution to the problem of rendering a figure hovering between life and death appreciated.

Summary: Architectures negotiating identities: The Israeli Pavilion. In the geopolitical context of the Holy Land, the combination of historical events, myths, and traditions has created an extraordinary concentration of holy places. Because of their supreme religious importance, many of these places have become arenas of bitter struggle between competing groups of religions and communities. The Israeli Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale focuses on this complex, fragile system of coexistence between rivals that has been established in the 19th Century: the Status Quo. The comprehensive publication opens a contemporary discussion of the topic, focusing on five major holy sites that encapsulate the spatio-political phenomenon of the Status Quo. Illustrated with architectural plans, archive documentation, images of the sites and works by visual artists, critical essays from various disciplines investigate the role of architecture and how these agreements have regulated and transformed space. (La Biennale di Venezia - 16. Mostra Internazionale di Architettura)

Description: New York: The Grolier Club, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 208pp., 157 illus., most in color.

Summary: The Grolier Club has maintained a strong Francophile tradition since its founding in 1884, beginning with its name. The Grolier Club was named for Jean Grolier, the Renaissance collector who was renowned for his patronage of scholars and printers, for the magnificent bindings he commissioned, and for a generous habit of sharing his library with friends. Drawn from the Grolier's permanent collections, the objects in this exhibition and catalogue range from a magnificent 12th-century manuscript of Gregory the Great's commentary on Job to recent artists' books and designer bookbindings. Highlights include manuscript and printed illuminated Books of Hours, early printed books, bindings from seven centuries, a letter from Jefferson to his Parisian bookseller, portrait prints of the great and the good, commemorative medals, and documents. Our patron saint, Jean Grolier, the "Prince of Bibliophiles," is honored with five of his books and three documents. The libraries of such important figures as Madame Pompadour, Marie Antoinette, Count Hoym, Jean-Baptiste Colbert, and Adolf Hitler are represented.

Description: München: Hirmer, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, ca. 276pp., 110 color illus. Exhibition held at Museum Folkwang, Essen. German text.

Summary: The 1920s witnessed the emergence in Italy of Realismo Magico, an independent movement that has long been identified with the New Objectivity. Around seventy paintings representing this style can be seen at the Museum Folkwang in autumn 2018, including major pieces by the key figures in the movement, Ubaldo Oppi, Antonio Donghi, and Felice Casorati, which enter into dialogue with works by such artists as Giorgio de Chirico, Giorgio Morandi, Carlo Carrà, and Gino Severini. In these pictures, painterly virtuosity never becomes a facile end in itself—the uncanny constantly lurks behind the familiar, and beneath the smooth surface we encounter the abyss. Between melancholy and idyll, between a weariness with civilization and the pathos of progress, the magic realism movement gave rise to some of the most atmospheric paintings of the twentieth century.

Summary: Featuring over fifty works from public and private collections across the world, Gainsborough's Family Album will provide a unique insight into the private life and motivations of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88), one of Britain's greatest artists. The exhibition includes a number of works that have never been on public display in the UK and will bring together for the first time all twelve surviving portraits of Thomas Gainsborough's daughters. Gainsborough's Family Album charts Gainsborough's career from youth to maturity, telling the story of an eighteenth-century provincial artist's rise to metropolitan fame and fortune. The exhibition will both offer a new perspective on Gainsborough the portraitist and challenge our thinking about his era and its relationship to our own.
