Title: EDWARD RUSCHA : Catalogue Raisonné of the Works on Paper, Volume 2: 1977–1997

ISBN: 9780300214666
Record created on 03/19/2018
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, for Gagosian Gallery, 2018. 29cm., hardcover, 454pp., 1060 color illus.

Summary: Volume 2 of this exceptional catalogue raisonné project compiles the unique works on paper that Edward Ruscha (b. 1937) made between 1977 and 1997, the artist’s midcareer period, during which he achieved international renown. More than 1,000 works are documented, among them hundreds that have rarely, or never, been exhibited or published. Highlights include Ruscha’s inimitable word and phrase works, made in organic materials, pastel, or acrylic; compositions featuring signature images (windows, ships, silhouetted objects and figures, and film closing credits); and drawings and studies related to important public commissions for the Miami-Dade Public Library, the Denver Central Library, and the Getty Center. Each work is catalogued with a beautiful color reproduction, collection details, full chronological provenance, exhibition history, and bibliographic references. Essays by Lisa Turvey and Gwen Allen complete the volume, providing critical frameworks and historical context for the art within.

Title: BERNARD VAN ORLEY : Le Triptyque de Notre-Dame des Sept Douleurs
Author: Rimaud, Yohan ; Nicolas Surlapierre
Price: $22.50
ISBN: 9788836640034
Record created on 11/14/2018
Description: Milan: Silvana, 2018. 24cm., pbk., 120pp., 60 illus. French text.

Summary: Publié à l’occasion de la réouverture du Musée des beaux-arts et d’archéologie, le premier numéro de la revue du musée, Tremesis, est entièrement consacré à l’un de ses chefs-d’œuvre, le Triptyque de Notre-Dame des Sept-Douleurs de Bernard van Orley. La restauration fondamentale de cette œuvre provenant de la collection Granvelle a suscité une étude ambitieuse et pluridisciplinaire, à la fois historique, iconographique, technique et stylistique, dont les résultats sont publiés dans ce numéro. Les contributions des meilleurs spécialistes de la peinture flamande, historiens de l’art, restaurateurs et scientifiques, apportent un éclairage nouveau sur l’une des redécouvertes récentes les plus importantes des musées français. (Tremesis - Revue des musées du Centre, Besancon, 1)
