Item Description: DAAB, 2012. 176 pages. Only after the Olympic "Birds Nest" did it become common knowledge that the Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei, also sets new standards in architecture. The national stadium in Beijing, designed in cooperation with the Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron, marked the zenith of a busy phase of construction. Ai Weiwei’s interest in architecture is closely linked to his artistic and political persona. With the razing of his studio by the Chinese authorities shortly before his arrest in 2011, the prototype of an architecture that, as a form of protest, contrasted values like simplicity and respect for man and nature with China’s brutal methods of modernization was destroyed. Erst durch das olympische „Vogelnest" wurde bekannt, dass der chinesische Künstler Ai Weiwei auch als Architekt Maßstäbe setzt. Das gemeinsam mit dem Schweizer Architekturbüro Herzog & de Meuron entworfene Pekinger Nationalstadion markiert den Höhepunkt einer regen Bautätigkeit. Ai Weiweis Interesse an Architektur ist eng mit seinem künstlerischen und politischen Selbstverständnis verknüpft. Die Zerstörung seines Atelierhauses kurz vor seiner Verhaftung 2011 durch die chinesischen Behörden traf den Prototyp einer Architektur, die mit Wertmaßstäben wie Einfachheit und Respekt gegenüber dem Menschen und der Natur bewusst gegen die brachialen Modernisierungspraktiken Chinas opponiert.

Item Description: ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES, 2014. 200 pages. This is a rare chance to see works on paper by some of Europe's greatest artists, which are usually kept in storage due to their sensitivity to light. European prints and drawings 1500-1900 presents 150 outstanding works from the Art Gallery of NSW collection. On display for the first time is the recent acquisition Melencolia I by Albrecht Dürer, marking the 500th anniversary of this 1514 engraving - one of the most enigmatic images in Western art. Charting some four centuries since the Renaissance, these works show the development of various graphic techniques and reveal the story of the graphic arts in Europe. The big subjects of European art and culture, and changing attitudes towards religion and faith, science and philosophy, power and politics, the individual and society, are all captured on paper. The exhibition coincides with the publication of the first book on the Gallery's European prints and drawings collection, opening a fascinating window into tradition and innovation in the graphic arts in Europe as well as the Gallery's own history of collecting.

Item Description: ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS, 2015. 208 pages. Despite living through some of the most dramatic changes of the twentieth century, Stanley Anderson CBE (18841966) created a vision of an essentially timeless English rural tradition in his etchings and woodcuts. His training was as an engraver, first on a heraldic engraving apprenticeship with his father and later at the Royal College of Art and Goldsmiths College, London. Anderson became a master of his craft: elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1923. When he later took up woodcutting, he became immersed in a technique that was considered as deeply English as the subjects he depicted. Anderson was a key figure in the revival of engraving in the 1920s. The techniques exacting craftsmanship, intimate scale and indelible sense of historicism were a stark contrast to the modernist explosion. This catalogue raisonné gathers together for the first time the complete uvre of Andersons prints, from the townscapes of his early career to the fascinating twenty-year study of rural crafts, including hedge-laying, carpentry and barrel-making, that he carried out towards the end of his life, and for which he is best known.

Item Description: EDITIONS GALLIMARD PARIS, 2014. 256 pages. Camille Claudel est née le 8 décembre 1864, il y a cent cinquante ans. Cet anniversaire a suscité une ambitieuse exposition à La Piscine de Roubaix du 8 novembre 2014 au 8 février 2015. Cette artiste attachante, au destin tragique, méritait une nouvelle réflexion sur son œuvre, dirigée par deux grands spécialistes auteurs de son catalogue raisonné : Bruno Gaudichon et Anne Rivière. Avec de prestigieux prêts, consentis par d'importantes collections publiques et privées, françaises et internationales et notamment grâce à un partenariat exceptionnel avec le musée Rodin et les musées de Nogent et Poitiers, l'exposition regroupe un ensemble remarquable d'œuvres. Le parcours suit un chemin moins traditionnel que celui qui est généralement proposé. Les commissaires ont mis en évidence un certain nombre de points forts dans l'inspiration et le travail de Camille Claudel, qui rythment le déroulé en séquences thématiques et chronologiques. Le circuit dans l'œuvre de Camille Claudel est accompagné par un second niveau, construit avec d'autres artistes qui, à la même époque, ont partagé les mêmes sujets, la même manière et les mêmes inspirations. Le japonisme, l'Art nouveau, le naturalisme, l'expression de la chorégraphie sont développés pour mieux situer Camille Claudel dans les grands enjeux esthétiques de sa génération. L'exposition réunit plus de cent cinquante œuvres de Camille Claudel, de Rodin et d'artistes comme Alfred Boucher, Jules Desbois, Bernhard Hoetger, pour dresser un tableau le plus exhaustif possible de cette étonnante artiste, de son milieu et de son temps.

Item Description: SOMOGY, 2014. 240 pages. Presque oublié ces deux derniers siècles, le peintre Charles de La Fosse (1636-1716) est pourtant le grand introducteur des idées nouvelles sous le règne de Louis XIV. Son oeuvre témoigne de l'évolution de la création artistique depuis Charles Le Brun, dont il fut l'élève, à celle d'Antoine Watteau, qui fut un ami proche. Auprès de son maître, Charles de La Fosse participe aux grands décors historiques des Tuileries et du château de Versailles. Formé en Italie, où il demeure cinq années, il embrasse la carrière académique à son retour en France, avec L'enlèvement de Proserpine, son morceau de réception (1673) et devient directeur de l'Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture de 1699 à 1702. Ami de Roger de Piles, il est l'un des tenants du colorisme mêlant à la leçon des Vénitiens celle des Flamands. Il se rend en Angleterre à la demande de Lord de Montagu. Rappelé en France par Jules Hardouin-Mansart à la mort de Le Brun en 1690, il se voit confier plusieurs des grandes commandes royales et privées. En peignant la galerie de l'hôtel particulier du financier Pierre Crozat, il côtoie une nouvelle génération d'artistes. L'œuvre de La Fosse est aussi remarquable par les nombreux dessins exécutés par l'artiste, notamment ceux à la technique des trois crayons (pierre noire, sanguine, rehauts de blanc), héritée de Rubens. Cette première exposition monographique rendra hommage à l'un des créateurs incontournables du décor du château de Versailles qui œuvra aux salons de Diane et d'Apollon, au Grand Trianon et à la Chapelle royale. Elle sera l'occasion de mettre en valeur ses grandes compositions, en particulier le salon d'Apollon, en cours de restauration. Elle présentera une quarantaine de peintures et autant de dessins provenant de collections françaises et étrangères, publiques et privées. Exposition présentée au château de Versailles, appartement de Madame de Maintenon, du 23 février au 24 mai 2015 et au musée des Beaux-Arts, Nantes, du19 juin au 20 septembre 2015.

Item Description: PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2015. 272 pages. From the Middle Ages to the present, master draftsmen have used the technique of metalpoint to create some of the most beautiful and technically accomplished drawings in the history of art. Drawing in Silver and Goldexamines the history of this evocative medium, in which a metal stylus is used on a specially prepared surface to create lines of astonishing delicacy. This beautifully illustrated book examines the practice of metalpoint over six centuries, in the work of artists ranging from Leonardo, Dürer, and Rembrandt to Otto Dix and Jasper Johns. A team of authors-curators, conservators, scientists-address variations in technique across time and between different schools, incorporating new scientific analysis, revealing patterns of use, and providing a rare demonstration of the medium's range and versatility. They reappraise famous metalpoints of the Renaissance and shed new light on infrequently studied periods, such as the seventeenth century and the Victorian silverpoint revival. A new examination of an exquisite but not thoroughly understood medium, Drawing in Silver and Gold offers fresh interpretations of a practice central to the history of drawing and will serve as the most authoritative reference on metalpoints for years to come.

Item Description: EDITIONS GALLIMARD PARIS, 2014. 360 pages. Prodigieusement doué et profondément tourmenté, Carpeaux fut, par la brièveté et la fulgurance de sa carrière, la figure majeure du renouveau de la sculpture française sous le Second Empire. Fils d'un maçon et d'une dentellière de Valenciennes, il se construisit un destin d'exception étroitement lié au règne de Napoléon III. Sculpteur du mouvement, portraitiste du sourire, dessinateur familier de la cour des Tuileries, observateur attentif de la vérité de la rue, Carpeaux n'aura de cesse, d'Ugolin à La Danse de l'Opéra, d'osciller entre tragédie et plaisir. Cet ouvrage propose de redécouvrir sous tous ces aspects l'œuvre d'un des plus grands sculpteurs français du XIXe siècle tant admiré par Rodin. Bookseller Inventory # 978-2-07-014593-5

Item Description: PRESTEL, 2014. 256 pages. "The first book dedicated solely to this important member of the Russian avant-garde, this volume profiles Lazar Khidekel, a brilliant artist and architect whose career proves a key link in the story of abstraction. For decades the work of Lazar Khidekel has been undeservedly overlooked by galleries and museums-primarily because the Russian avant-garde movement was interrupted midstream and forced underground by the Soviet state. This elegantly designed book provides the perfect introduction to Khidekel's decades-long career and coincides with a recently renewed fascination with Suprematism and the development of 20th-century abstraction. A student of Chagall and Malevich, Khidekel was an artistic prodigy whose fascination with architecture led to his part in the founding of UNOVIS, or "Affirmers of the New Art." He later became a significant figure in the Suprematist movement, a distinctly Russian form of abstraction. The volume features the best examples from each phase of Khidekel's career, from his pre-Suprematist work and early architectural and eco-futuristic projects to his post-Suprematist paintings, works on paper, and architectural projects.

Item Description: BREPOLS PUBLISHERS, 2015. 300 pages. The ephemeral art of festival, popular in the 16th and 17th centuries, was created for public events, such as triumphal processions, weddings and court funerals. Large-scale monuments combining painting, sculpture and the performing arts were devised for the duration of the event, but as soon as this was over, these extravagant constructions were dismantled and their individual components ultimately destroyed. Before the monuments ceased to exist, the city council would ensure their conservation in words and images, thus materializing the ephemeral art of festival into the more lasting medium of word and image on paper. One of the most celebrated such festive events was that of the 1599 Antwerp Triumphal Entry of Archduke Albert of Austria and the Infanta Isabella Clara Eugenia of Spain, the new Spanish governors of the Netherlands. No fewer than 22 monuments, composed of ephemeral materials, were devised. Construction of the monuments was entrusted not only into the hands of sculptors, painters, goldsmiths, carpenters and architects, but also to one of the leading thinkers of the time, the humanist and city secretary Johannes Bochius. This study offers a new approach to an analysis of the art of such events, based on Bochius' book: The Triumphal Entry of the Archdukes Albert and Isabella. Offering a unique and innovative interpretation of the ephemeral art books, a particular relation is revealed between the ephemeral event itself and its documentation in a book. Examining the role of the author (in this case Bochius) as the sole designer of the event, the monuments and their documentation (the book), requires an idiosyncratic reading of the text, which in turns provides more accurate and valid interpretative framework for the book, and hence also for the artwork. Such books, in uniting event and text into one coherent and long-lasting work of art, constitute a new genre of ekphrasis, formulated and conceived solely for the purpose of eternalizing the ephemeral.

Item Description: BREPOLS PUBLISHERS, 2015. Book Condition: AS NEW. COMO NUEVO. 300 pages. Denijs van Alsloot (vers 1568 ?- 1625/26) fut incontestablement le principal paysagiste à Bruxelles au début du XVIIe siècle. Il sut rapidement s'attirer les faveurs de la cour, où il occupa une position privilégiée. Ses paysages, composés à la fois d'éléments empruntés à l'héritage bruegélien et à une iconographie courtoise issue de l'art de la tapisserie, semblent avoir visé en premier lieu une clientèle de princes, de courtisans et de grands commis de l'état. L'ouvrage explore pour la première fois de manière systématique les différentes facettes de la production connue de van Alsloot. Composé de deux parties, il propose une étude qui non seulement repose sur une analyse des œuvres du point de vue stylistique et technologique, mais les situe aussi dans le contexte des pratiques d'atelier de l'époque et dans celui de la politique artistique des archiducs.

Item Description: EDITORIAL COMARES, 2014. 584 pages. La Alhambra ha sido objeto de múltiples miradas a lo largo de la historia. Desde el siglo XVIII la mayoría de los estudios sobre el monumento se centraron en la época nazarí y en el legado artístico hispanomusulmán. El fervor orientalista y el interés por lo exótico incentivaron a un buen número de viajeros a visitar la Alhambra y a relatar su experiencia alentando así aún más el interés por el monumento y el legado islámico. En la Edad Moderna, sin embargo, la Alhambra fue apreciada fundamentalmente como símbolo de la unidad política, cultural y religiosa conseguida por la Monarquía después de la conquista de 1492. Las investigaciones centradas en este período histórico irremediablemente han de ser testigo de este nuevo rol simbólico asignado a la Alhambra, que de algún modo se pone de manifiesto también en el programa de obras reales llevado a cabo en la ciudad palatina desde el reinado de los Reyes Católicos hasta el siglo XVIII. El carácter palatino y militar del recinto determinó la singularidad de la Alhambra como centro del poder político del reino nazarí y posteriormente en época cristiana, incluso cuando la Corte solo residiera ocasionalmente en la ciudadela. Su estatus como Sitio Real, bajo la tutela del conde de Tendilla como alcaide, posibilitó una serie de intervenciones en los palacios y en el recinto fortificado promovidos por la Corona y bajo la supervisión de la Junta de Obras y Bosques, que mantuvieron con vida las casas reales pese a estar tan apartadas de la Corte y de los intereses de los reyes. Por otro lado, al ser sede de la Capitanía General del reino de Granada la ciudadela ofrecía cierta utilidad militar que justificaba la inversión en el mantenimiento de los inmuebles que la conformaban.

"En esta obra, María Pepa afronta la ardua tarea de realizar una aproximación, rigurosa y didáctica, al patrimonio cultural de Andalucía en la acepción más amplia del término. Un empeño nada fácil, dada la enorme riqueza y amplitud de dicho patrimonio, resultado de las diferentes culturas y avatares históricos que han tenido lugar en tierras andaluzas desde épocas prehistóricas hasta tiempos contemporáneos. Una obra que si bien nace con una clara vocación docente, trasciende esta finalidad pedagógica para llegar también a un público más amplio que el escolar y dar a conocer la gran riqueza patrimonial de la que Andalucía es depositaria. El libro está organizado en "lecciones". Sí, en lecciones, porque en cada capítulo María Pepa trata de transmitir una enseñanza, un saber, un conocimiento de las diferentes dimensiones que posee nuestro acervo cultural. Y pocas vertientes de este legado, por no decir ninguna, quedan sin tratarse en sus páginas que a bien seguro te van a entusiasmar. En las dos primeras lecciones se abordan conceptos básicos acerca del patrimonio, la actuación al respecto de los poderes públicos, la normativa legal, y las iniciativas más relevantes de las administraciones públicas, entre otros aspectos. En las siguientes lecciones se abordan, sucesivamente, el patrimonio arqueológico, el científico-industrial, el monumental -con los grandes conjuntos monumentales andaluces-, el patrimonio documental y bibliográfico -que incluye algunos de los archivos más representativos de nuestra Comunidad Autónoma-, el patrimonio etnográfico -donde trata las tradiciones, costumbres yalgunas de las principales manifestaciones festivas de Andalucía-, para abordar en la última lección la escultura monumental."* ".

Item Description: J. PAUL GETTY MUSEUM, 2014. 112 pages. This lavishly illustrated volume offers a fascinating glimpse into Ruben's artistic process. The six glorious scenes that make up the Triumph of the Eucharist series by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) are highlights of the Museo Nacional del Prado's superb collection of Remish paintings. Completed in 1626, these brilliantly detailed sketches were painted at the behest of the Infanta Isabel Clara Eugenia in preparation for a series of monumental tapestries that are now considered among the finest made in Europe in the 17th-century. Unfortunately, additions to the wooden supports, introduced after the paintings were created, made the panels considerably larger than Rubens intended and over time caused serious damage to the original sections. With the aid of the Getty Foundation's Panel Paintings Initiative, the panels have been restored and returned to their original dimensions by the Prado, and the magnificent oil sketches can once again be placed on public view. This exquisitely illustrated volume provides new insight into the history of the Eucharist series of paintings and tapestries and attests to Rubens' exhilarating art.

Item Description: OFFICINA LIBRARIA, 2015. 248 pages. "Rarely examined laboratory photographs, a recently discovered annotation, and a hitherto unknown letter shed new light on Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa or Gioconda In this study Rab Hatfield provides a thorough, no-nonsense analysis of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa or Gioconda. The book begins with a consideration of the generally known sources and documents and a careful look at the painting as we know it now. There follow discussions of rarely examined laboratory photographs and of a recently discovered annotation by Ser Agostino Vespucci in a book he owned of letters by Cicero, from which we learn that Leonardo left a portrait of "Lisa del Giocondo" unfinished no later than October 1503. The book concludes with a hitherto unknown letter written in 1515 by Filippo Strozzi to Lorenzo de' Medici, Captain General of the Florentine Armies and soon to become Duke of Urbino, describing some supposed advances these two men made to Mon(n)a Lisa. The laboratory photographs and newly discovered sources make it clear that the Mona Lisa has probably been reworked twice, that it in fact depicts Mon(n)a Lisa del Giocondo, and that it would be better if we spoke of it as La Gioconda rather than the Mona Lisa.

Item Description: CAMBRIDGE U. P., 2015. 560 pages. The relation between the visual and the verbal spheres has been much contested in recent years, from laments about the 'logocentricism' of the academy to the heralding of the 'pictorial turn' of the multimedia age. This lavishly illustrated book recontextualises these debates through the historical lens of Greek and Roman antiquity. Dr Squire shows how modern Western concepts of 'words' and 'pictures' derive from a post-Reformation tradition of theology and aesthetics. Where modern critics assume a bipartite separation between images and texts, classical antiquity toyed with a more playful and engaged relation between the two. By using the ancient world to rethink our own ideologies of the visual and the verbal, this interdisciplinary book brings together classics and art history, as well as a sustained reflection on their historiography: the result is a new and explosive cultural history of Western visual thinking. - Richly illustrated throughout, allowing readers to follow the visual arguments - An explosive cultural history of Western visual thinking - Makes a new and distinctive contribution to a variety of disciplines, building much-needed intellectual bridges.

Item Description: HERCULES DE EDICIONES, 2014. 488 pages. «A los doce años yo dibujaba como Rafael», sentenció Picasso en 1946. Ese genio precoz explotó en A Coruña, la ciudad en la que reconoció que se despertaron sus sentidos. Es en Galicia donde inicia sus estudios académicos, y el lugar en el que pinta sus primeras obras maestras, como La muchacha de los pies descalzos o Retrato de Ramón Pérez Costales. El propio Picasso reivindicaba la importancia de su período coruñés, que en ocasiones llegó a valorar por encima de sus etapas azul y rosa. En 1891 llegó a A Coruña un niño procedente de Málaga, y en abril de 1895 se marchó un artista adolescente de 13 años aclamado por la crítica, que lo comparó con Giotto y le pronosticó, de forma profética, «días de gloria y un porvenir brillante».No solo sonaron las campanas del triunfo: también tañeron por la muerte de su hermana Conchita, un hecho que marcó el resto de su vida en lo personal y en lo artístico. Cuando la niña enfermó, pactó con Dios: «Si salvas a Conchita, dejo de pintar». Pero la niña falleció, y Pablo se convirtió en artista por decisión divina. En este trabajo se detalla este episodio, que le motivó a crear uno de sus cuadros más simbólicos. Picasso Azul y Blanco.Este libro deja también patente cómo la huella de su estancia gallega se siente en la obra posterior del andaluz, y podría incluso alcanzar a una de sus piezas más renombradas, Guernica. Sus 488 páginas acogen ésta y otras revelaciones sorprendentes, así como multitud de datos y documentos inéditos sobre una etapa fundamental, aunque poco explorada, en la carrera del artista más popular e influyente del siglo XX.

Item Description: LUND HUMPHRIES PUBLISHERS, 2014. 192 pages. Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) explored fundamental issues of life with an urgency and persistence unique among British artists of his generation. His art comments on religion, love, sexuality, fraternity and community. Charting the trajectory of Spencer's painting career in depth, this original publication provides a comprehensive analysis of the artist's oeuvre. Central to understanding Spencer's work is the man himself - deeply subjective, his paintings reflect the ideas and beliefs that motivated him. While he had less emotional attachment to his landscapes, he viewed each figure painting as constituent of a body of work which, viewed as a whole, was representative of his personal and professional evolution. Examining critically the artist's key works from all periods, Andrew Causey places Spencer's art within the wider context of the spiritual, social and even, exceptionally, political values that underpin his work and make him such an outstanding painter. While strong emphasis is placed on Spencer's 'visionary' paintings of the 1910s and1920s and the important crowd scenes and portraiture of the 1930s, Stanley Spencer gives due attention to the works produced later in the artist's career. The result is a well-rounded, original analysis of one of Britain's greatest painters that will enhance the libraries of general and specialist readers alike.

Item Description: RIZZOLI, 2014. 63 pages. This catalogue, which accompanies an exhibition held at Gagosian Gallery in Athens, features landmark linocut prints made by Pablo Picasso between 1959 and 1963. Pablo Picasso restlessly explored the medium of the print throughout his life, employing many techniques including lithography, etching, drypoint, and monotype. By the late 1950s, he was spending most of his time in the south of France, and the distance between him and his Parisian printers became increasingly difficult for smooth production. He turned his attention to lino-cutting, a very direct way of working whereby a design is cut into a sheet of linoleum using a knife, chisel, or gouge. His first linocut was a simple black-and-white print, but by 1959 he was using the technique as a complete means of expression. His subjects ranged from Jacqueline Roque, his muse, wife, and constant companion, to Old Master portraits in which he pays homage to El Greco. Bookseller Inventory # 978-0-8478-4287-2

Item Description: HATJE CANTZ, 2014. 150 pages. Encyclopedic aspirations in the spirit of the Enlightenment: the creation of the world-famous collection of prints The Albertina in Vienna houses one of the world's most eminent collections of art. This extensive, sumptuously illustrated volume presents the museum's masterpieces acquired by the founder of the collection, Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen, and his consort, the Grand Duchess Marie Christine. The history of the couple's mercurial, fateful lives begins in the Baroque era at the court of Maria Theresa and moves through the years of revolution in America and Europe to the restoration of the conservative monarchies after the Vienna Congress in 1815. Well-informed essays shed light on their sojourns in Dresden, Rome, Paris, Brussels, and Vienna-centers of European culture and politics as well as hotbeds of social and intellectual innovations during the Enlightenment-and provide personal insight into the feudal lifestyle of the European aristocracy. Further contributions deal with the networks of collectors and art dealers as well as the history of the ideas behind this princely collection of prints. Bookseller Inventory # 978-3-7757-3739-5
