New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2009. Hardcover. VG/VG (Clean, bright and tight but art school ex-lib. with usual marks). Pearl grey cloth/boards; black lettering. Color-illus. dj with white lettering on spine. Mylar cover. xii + 308 pp. with 220 color and bw figures. This volume, the first catalogue ever published of the Metropolitan Museum's British paintings, contains 140 works by English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish artists as well as by a few others who were foreign-born but who worked primarily in England. Most of the paintings were acquired as gifts and bequests from prominent collections formed in the United States before World War II, including those of Jules Bache, Robert Lehman, Mr. and Mrs. Edward S. Harkness, J. Pierpont Morgan, and Catharine Lorillard Wolfe. The preponderance are portraits, although there are also genre scenes, landscapes, and subjects drawn from the Bible and mythology. Ranging in date from 1572 to 1868, the portraits offer a particularly intriguing look at English society during the eighteenth century. All the world-renowned British portraitists-Sir Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Gainsborough, George Romney, Sir Thomas Lawrence-are represented, along with such additional masters of the genre as Robert Peake the Elder, Sir Peter Lely, Sir Henry Raeburn, and John Hoppner. Among the many other notable paintings in the collection are an early conversation piece by William Hogarth, a study of a horse by George Stubbs, a whaling scene and a Venetian cityscape by J. M. W. Turner, two landscapes and a portrait by John Constable, and important works by the Pre-Raphaelites Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones. Brief biographies of the artists are followed by full-page color illustrations of the paintings, each of which is completely documented with provenance, major exhibitions, and significant published sources. The entry texts discuss the subject of the painting as well as the life of the sitter if a portrait; the extant records pertaining to its execution; relevant scholarly opinions (including issues of attribution); and its current physical condition. In addition, Michael Gallagher, Sherman Fairchild Conservator in Charge of Paintings Conservation at the Museum, has contributed comprehensive technical notes on his recent restoration of Reynolds's monumental portrait of Henry Fane and two companions. The catalogued works, almost all newly photographed for this publication, are supplemented by an unusually generous selection of comparative illustrations. These 220 images-pendants, other related paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and X-radiographs-have been carefully chosen to illuminate and augment the text. Particularly crucial to the study of English portraiture are the many reproductions of variants and replicas. (publisher's web site)., Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2009, New Delhi, India: Aryan Books International, 2014. The present volume generates a liaison between the past and present. It reveals a dignified unity in Indian art which regulates its future. An appraisal of the art of India since ancient times with a case study of S.P. Verma's innovations and experiments, is a novel introduction to an ingenious artist-a very controlled creative painter and one of the India's senior scholars of Mughal painting. The book illumines the values and concerns that shaped attitudes to creative activity and provides an accessible unfolding of valuable Indian traditions. It entrusts the real ferment of contemporary art in India which seems to lie in its diversity and vitality. Here worthiness of art works is interpreted in terms of an aesthetic and ingenuity. Verma's collage-cum-graphic art generates a distinct feasible technique with a typical mode of communication which imprints his addition to the contemporaneous art. Indian art embedded with respect for spirituality is infused with ideas and abstractions. Modern Indian art, too, is occupied with it, and Verma is not an exception to it. The present book illuminated with 160 plates in colour and black-and-white is a sumptuous work of art-an endowment for all of us. The textual outlines conserve the essential contours of the historical evolution of Indian art and familiarize the reader with the masterpieces of the heritage which have been illustrated to the maximum extent possible. The selection of illustrations, like the richest cream at the top of the milk, is the intense essence of their culture, to be savoured slowly and completely. Everyone can enjoy their virtuosity and naturalism; but the more one learns about India, the more nourishing the paintings. In this book, Ghosh has tried to open wide the Indian door. The volume will be of great value to anyone who wishes to understand the composite cultural history of India-a matter of immediate importance. This book is significant for the wide appeal it commands-it will not only interest students of cultural studies, but also art historians and connoisseurs of art, as well as by anyone interested in Indian art.

This in-depth study of the paintings of Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) from the 1940s through the 1970s breaks new ground in its analysis of the artist's working methods and yields new information about previously unreported materials. De Kooning's idiosyncratic working methods have long engendered intense speculation and debate among conservators and art historians, primarily on the basis of visual inspection and anecdotal accounts rather than rigorous technical analysis. This is the first systematic study of de Kooning's creative process to use comprehensive scientific examinations of the artist's pigments, binders, and supports to inform art historical interpretations, thereby presenting a key to the complicated evolution of the artist's work. Written for conservation scientists, conservators, specialists in modern art history, museum curators, and practicing artists, this book offers insights into the way an artist can achieve radical changes in style. The technical discussions will have practical applications for conservators, curators, collections managers, and collectors who care for twentieth-century art. Susan F.

Brand new book. Jean Paul Riopelle (1923-2002) was one of the most important Canadian artists of the twentieth century, yet he is relatively unknown in the U.S. He began his career in Montreal in the 1940s, where he played a role in the influential Automatist movement, and established his reputation in the burgeoning art scene of postwar Paris, where his circle included AndrŽ Breton, Samuel Beckett, and Sam Francis. During his career, Riopelle produced over six thousand works, including more than two thousand paintings. This volume, the second in the Artists Materials series, grew out of a research project of the Canadian Conservation Institute. Initial chapters present an overview of Riopelles life and situate his work within the context of twentieth century art. Subsequent chapters address Riopelles materials and techniques, focusing on his oil paintings and mixed media works, and on conservation issues. The preface is by Yseult Riopelle, the artists eldest daughter and editor of his catalogue raisonnŽ. This first book-length study of the artist in English will interest curators, conservators, conservation scientists, and general readers.

In addition to the data that offer on the falsifications that are in the art, the style where upon the book is written is of pleasant reading. It offers remarkable cases of different falsifications that can be found in the art as in archaeology. "Did the Louvre Museum erased the signature of the author of the Venus of Milo so it could pass as another sculpture from a different period? The Statue of Laocoön and his Sons, (Vatican Museum), the most spectacular classic Greek artwork, was it carved in the Renaissance by a young Michael Angel Buonarroti? The Mona Lisa (also known as La Gioconda or La Joconde), hanging in Paris, ¿is it authentic or a fantastic copy? At least half of the cultural products of the past are falsified copies, have been altered or are wrongly attributed. Despite this, the museums treasure and exhibit them; even many consider the falsification as a mere police event and will not allow their study or divulgation. What is false and what is authentic? Why both are cultural concepts? What roles do offer and demand play in the market of art and archaeology? What is the responsibility of the museums and the collectors? What goal are these liars after? In Latin America, forgeries have tricked professionals since the 18th century. The questioned Codex Grolier and coarse Codex of La Malinche, the colonial book upon where Peruvian history is based assigned to an incorrect author, the paintings of a Guatemalan artist that never existed, the Zapoteca urns and the black ceramic pieces of Tlatelolco falsified in Mexico, the hoaxed medieval origin of the stone "Baton of Command" discovered in the Uritorco mountains in Argentina, the skulls made out of crystal rock in Belize attributed to extraterrestrials and the Brazilian antropolito as the symbol of Uruguayan identity are some of the many impostures that constitute the object of analysis and reflection of this book "--P.

The book was published on the occasion of an exhibition of watercolors at the Fogg Art Musum, May 12- June 22, 1977.

At the height of the AIDS crisis and in the midst of a wave of queer militancy in the early 1990s, California Governor Pete Wilson vetoed AB101, a statewide gay and lesbian rights bill. In response, angry demonstrators took to the streets around the state. Time Magazine summed up the story a few days later: "It was a week of rage in California, as gay activists smashed windows in government buildings, torched the California flag and burned Wilson in effigy. The governor had betrayed them, the protesters declared.... Wilson, who won his office with the help of gay support, had indicated in April that he would sign the legislation. But last week, after receiving 100,000 letters from impassioned conservatives urging him to scrap the bill, he changed his mind." In San Francisco, nearly 10,000 people rallied on Castro Street on Sept. 30, 1991, the day after the veto. Thousands then marched to the California State Building on Van Ness Avenue-and with emotions running high, continued to the Old State Building in Civic Center. Outnumbered, San Francisco and California State police retreated to the lobby as a full-scale riot broke out, with protesters smashing windows, spray-painting walls and setting the building aflame. Known as the AB101 Veto Riot, the uprising was the most recent of the three queer riots in the city, following the Compton's Cafeteria Riot of 1966 and the White Night Riot of 1979. The 1991 event resulted in 11 arrests, and according to police reports, caused almost $245,000 in damage. A sharp debate ensued, with some in the LGBT community condemning the damage to state property and others insisting that it reflected justified outrage. The following year, the California Legislature again passed AB101-and the governor signed it into law., No Apologies, No Regrets Committee, 1991, Ann Arbor, Michigan: Center for Chinese Studies The University of Michigan, 1997. 8vo. 262 pp. Bound in red cloth with gilt titles.

Many appear here in English for the first time, including translations of D. Vicente Polero y Toledo's 1855 essay "Arte de la Restauraci—n" (The Art of Restoration) and Victor Bauer-Bolton's treatise from 1914, "Sollen fehlende Stellen bei GemŠlden ergŠnzt werden?" (Should Missing Areas of Paintings Be Made Good?). The book is divided into six sections: An Historical Miscellany, History of the Profession, Study of Artists' Materials and Techniques, Structural Interventions, Philosophical and Practical Approaches to Cleaning and Restoration, and Cleaning Controversies.

A joint project of the Egyptian Antiquities Organization and the Getty Conservation Institute., Le Caire, Organisation des Antiquités Égyptiennes, 1987., New York: Harry N. Abrams , Inc., Publishers - National Gallery of Art, Washington D. C. , 1986. 271 Pages Indexed. As New Gift Quality. Interior text and illustration pages are flawless. This book is not only one of the masterpieces of sixteenth-century art from Turkey but is a celebration of the greatest period in Ottoman history and of its greatest sultan, Suleyman the Magnificent. He ruled over a vast and well-governed empire and his achievements were unmatched by those of his contemporaries Charles V, Francis I, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I of England. A treasure carefully preserved in the library of the Topkapi Palace Museum in Istanbul, the Suleymanname attests to the perfection of the highly refined art of the book, an art form that has been cultivated in the Islamic world since its beginnings. The publication of this edition together should lead to a new appreciation of this great era and artistic tradition. Dr. Atil, Guest Curator at the National Gallery of Art with this exhibition shows how the art of illustrated manuscripts was extended under Siileyman's enlightened patronage. These events in a sultan's life were recorded in the paintings accompanying the text in what became a visual documentary record. Although in some respects the art of manuscript illustration remained conservative, respecting long-established conventions, nevertheless many of the paintings mark an original turn toward accuracy of observation of an art in which the painter becomes more literally a witness. It is indeed fortunate that the illustrations in the Suleymanname are reproduced in facsimile, since the fragility and the uniqueness of the original manuscript have made it almost inaccessible for study. The design and production of this truly magnificent edition has given the National Gallery a chance to participate in a scholarly project that will deepen our knowledge and enjoyment of Ottoman art. A large heavy book that may incur addiltional shipping charges to some locations. . First Edition. Trade Paperback. As New. Illus. by Ness, Melanie B. - Design. 9 3/4" x 12 3/4"., Harry N. Abrams , Inc., Publishers - National Gallery of Art, Washington D. C., 1986, Aryan Books International, 2014. Hardcover. New. Contents: Preface. 1. Introduction: Indian art tradition: its fundamentals. 2. S.P. Verma’s Art an analytical study: appreciation and criticism. 3. S.P. Verma a historian with a diverse milieu. 4. Epiloque. Plates. Bibliography. Index. The present volume generates a liaison between the past and present. It reveals a dignified unity in Indian art which regulates its future. An appraisal of the art of India since ancient times with a case study of S.P. Verma`s innovations and experiments, is a novel introduction to an ingenious artist-a very controlled creative painter and one of the India`s senior scholars of Mughal painting. The book illumines the values and concerns that shaped attitudes to creative activity and provides an accessible unfolding of valuable Indian traditions. It entrusts the real ferment of contemporary art in India which seems to lie in its diversity and vitality. Here worthiness of art works is interpreted in terms of an aesthetic and ingenuity. Verma`s collage-cum-graphic art generates a distinct feasible technique with a typical mode of communication which imprints his addition to the contemporaneous art. Indian art embedded with respect for spirituality is infused with ideas and abstractions. Modern Indian art, too, is occupied with it, and Verma is not an exception to it. The present book illuminated with 160 plates in colour and black-and-white is a sumptuous work of art-an endowment for all of us. The textual outlines conserve the essential contours of the historical evolution of Indian art and familiarize the reader with the masterpieces of the heritage which have been illustrated to the maximum extent possible. The selection of illustrations, like the richest cream at the top of the milk, is the intense essence of their culture, to be savoured slowly and completely. Everyone can enjoy their virtuosity and naturalism; but the more one learns about India, the more nourishing the paintings. In this book, Ghosh has tried to open wide the Indian door. The volume will be of great value to anyone who wishes to understand the composite cultural history of India-a matter of immediate importance.

This volume showcases dynamic developments in the field of manuscript research that go beyond traditional textual, iconographic, or codicological studies. Using state-of-the-art conservation technologies, scholars investigate how four manuscriptsÑthe Galvin Murœa, the Getty Murœa, the Florentine Codex, and the Relaci—n de Michoac‡nÑwere created and demonstrate why these objects must be studied in a comparative context. The forensic study of manuscripts provides art historians, anthropologists, curators, and conservators with effective methods for determining authorship, identifying technical innovations, and contextualizing illustrated histories. This information, in turn, allows for more nuanced arguments that transcend the information that the written texts and painted images themselves provide. The book encourages scholars to think broadly about the manuscripts of colonial Mexico and Peru in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and employ new techniques and methods of research. Thomas B. F. Cummins is the Dumbarton Oaks Professor of the History of Pre-Columbian and Colonial Art and chair of the Department of the History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University. Emily Engel is chair and assistant professor in the Department of Fine Arts at the College of Mount Saint Vincent, New York. Barbara Anderson is an independent curator and art historian. Juan Ossio is senior professor in the Departamento de Ciencias Sociales at the Pontifica Universidad Cat—lica del Perœ, and from 2008 to 2011 served as the inaugural Peruvian Minister of Culture. 224 pages, 7 x 10 inches,35 color and 27 black-and-white illustrations, 6 line drawings., Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2015, Getty Conservation Institute, Los Angeles: 2016. Softcover. Brand new book. In the 1960s, a group of Los Angeles artists fashioned a body of work that has come to be known as the "LA Look" or West Coast Minimalism. Its distinct aesthetic is characterized by clean lines, simple shapes, and pristine reflective or translucent surfaces, and often by the use of bright, seductive colors. While the role of materials and processes in the advent of these truly indigenous Los Angeles art forms has often been commented on, it has never been studied in depth Ñ until now. Made in Los Angeles focuses on four pioneers of West Coast Minimalism Ñ Larry Bell, Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, and John McCracken Ñ whose working methods, often borrowed from other industries, featured the use of synthetic paints and resins as well as industrial processes to create objects that are both painting and sculpture. Bell, for example, coated plate glass with films of material that alter the way the light is absorbed, reflected, and transmitted, while Kauffman employed a process usually reserved for commercial signs for his work. McCracken coated plywood with fiberglass then spray-painted it with countless layers of automotive paints, and Irwin spray-painted discs of hammered aluminum or vacuum-formed plastics. The detailed study of each artist's work is presented in the context of the emergence of modern art in Los Angeles, the burgeoning mid-twentieth-century gallery scene, and the light-infused LA cityscape. Initially undertaken as part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A.1945-1980 initiative, this volume combines technical art history and scientific analysis to investigate conservation issues associated with the work of these artists, which are often emblematic of issues in the conservation of contemporary art in general. Rachel Rivenc is an associate scientist at the Getty Conservation Institute. 208 pages, 7 1/2 x 10 inches, 90 color and 34 black-and-white illustrations., Getty Conservation Institute, Los Angeles: 2016, Archetype Publications, 2006-01-01.
