Title: Des jardins & des livres
Author: Jakob, Michael ; Jacques Berchtold (eds)
Price: $100.00
ISBN: 9782940563333
Record created on 02/08/2018
Description: Geneve: Metis Presses, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, 496pp. prof. illus. Exhibition held at Fondation Bodmer, Geneve. French text.

Summary: The exhibition invites visitors to discover a major cultural phenomenon: the constant interchange between garden and book, and within book and garden. Reference will be made to Eden, epic gardens, the purgatory garden, the gardens of Venus and the Virgin Mary Garden, and to Poliphilo’s Strife of Love in a Dream as a pattern book for European gardens. Orlando Furioso makes up the subtext for the Gardens of Bomarzo; a key passage of Paradise Lost will be the aesthetic point of origin of the English Garden while Goethe’s Elective Affinities and garden visions, dreams and projects of great authors will be dealt with. Structured as a place to leisurely walk through, the exhibition opens up the fascinating world of the garden represented in books as a physical place and an intellectual construct. From ancient Babylon to today’s world, the exhibition presents, from a diachronic perspective, the most important documents reflecting the ever-present interest in gardens through time, national traditions and genres such as epics, poetry, prose, scientific theories, or manuals. Present as well is the success of the “beautiful garden book” as a novelty and capstone of the art of the book; among those are the one’s noted for their exceptional workmanship, introducing existing gardens or garden projects, as well as unfairly forgotten books, such as the Fruits Walls Improved by the Swiss mathematician, natural philosopher, and inventor Nicolas Fatio de Duillier.

Contents: Hortographies, Michael Jakob ; Jardin et écriture en chine, Yolaine Escande ; Hortus academicus?: les académies de la Renaissance et le jardin, Denis Ribouillault ; Les livres de savoirs et de techniques sur l'art des jardins japonais, Nicolas Fiévé ; L'avènement du jardin anglais dans les livres jardiniers du XVIIIe siècle, Jacques Berchtold ; Texte et image dans les herbiers et dans les ouvrages botaniques de l'Antiquité au '?Seicento', Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi ; Un frontispice pour le jardin, Alessandro Tosi ; Lectures de plein air?: le modèle rousseauiste, Michel Delon ; La littérature au miroir d'Hortésie au temps des lumières, Monique Mosser ; Des platebandes et des pages imprimées.

Title: San Lorenzo in Verona : Storia e restauri
Author: Passuello, Angelo
Price: $26.25    Original Price: $52.50
ISBN: 9788883149238
Record created on 09/06/2017
Description: Caselle di Sommacampagna: Cierre, 2017. 28cm., pbk., 304pp. prof. illus.

Summary: San Lorenzo, posta sull'antica via Postumia, è una delle più antiche e affascinanti chiese di Verona ma la sua storia, fino ad ora, non era ancora stata interamente indagata. Prendendo le mosse da un'accurata analisi delle vicende storico-architettoniche del complesso, dalla fondazione altomedievale all'età moderna, con l'ausilio di documenti inediti e di un accurato studio dei materiali, il volume rende conto dell'articolata diacronia del costruito. Dall'innalzamento, mediante una campagna edilizia omogenea conclusasi entro il primo decennio del XII secolo, agli estensivi interventi di ripristino otto-novecenteschi. Vengono qui analizzati, in particolare, sia l'intervento del rettore don Pietro Scapini, il quale sul finire del XIX secolo decise di "ridonare" alla fabbrica il suo presunto aspetto originario, sia quello del soprintendente Piero Gazzola, che ne curò il riassetto postbellico dopo le gravi lesioni causate dalle incursioni aeree alleate fra il 1944 e il 1945. L'interpretazione dei restauri ha dato spunto a un completo riesame del cantiere romanico, modificandone la narrazione "canonica" e sottolineandone l'importanza nell'Italia settentrionale del primo XII secolo.

Title: JAN BAPTIST WEENIX & JAN WEENIX : The Paintings. Volume 1: A Story of Versaility, Success and Bankruptcy in Seventeenth-Century Hollland. Volume 2: Master of the Dutch Hunting Still Life
Author: Van Wagenberg-Ter Hoeven, Anke A
Price: $115.00
ISBN: 9789462621596
Record created on 04/26/2018
Description: Zwolle: Waanders, 2018. 2 vols. 27 x 21cm., hardcover, slipcase, ca. 800pp. prof. illus.

Summary: Jan Baptist Weenix & Jan Weenix: the paintings, by Anke A. Van Wagenberg-Ter Hoeven, is the result of art historical research on the work of the 17th-century Dutch artist Jan Baptist Weenix (1621-1659) and his son Jan Weenix (1641-1719). Works by both these artists can be seen in all major museums with holdings of Dutch and Flemish paintings. This book fills a gap in art history and throws new light on the appreciation of Dutch art. Since 2004, hundreds of paintings have been documented as either Weenix I or Weenix II. For centuries, attributions had been confused because of the two artists’ similar subject choices and (at least for a time) similar style. Following the death of his father (and teacher), Jan gradually changed his style to conform to the more courtly taste of the late 17th and early 18th century. This first ever published monograph on Jan Baptist Weenix and his son Jan Weenix includes over 500 paintings.
