Christie’s The Jewellery Archives Revealed

or centuries, the stories of the world's great jewelry collections have lain hidden within the archives of Christie's, the celebrated auctioneers. From the tragic European queens, Mary, Queen of Scots and Marie Antoinette - both beheaded - to Hollywood royalty such as Elizabeth Taylor, the vaults sparkle with the most famous (and occasionally notorious) names of the last 250 years. Following on from the success of his books on Boucheron: The Secret Archives, Van Cleef & Arpels: Treasures and Legends and Mellerio: Jewellers to the Queens of Europe, author Vincent Meylan explores these remarkable jewelry archives, revealing the mysteries within for the first time.
Each sale had its intrigue, each its story to tell. The first auction of jewelry from the British royal family took place at Christie's in 1773, after the death of the Princess of Wales, mother of George III. As the archives reveal, in the subsequent centuries, Christie's has been party to the sale of jewelry by several further generations of British royals, from Lady Patricia Ramsay and the Countess of Southesk through to Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon. And, in the wake of revolution and regicide further afield, the crown jewels of France, Russia, Bavaria, Serbia, Egypt, India and Spain were all sold at Christie's. Aside from Elizabeth Taylor, the legendary movie star collections of Merle Oberon and Gloria Swanson are here, as well as the most famous pearls and diamonds in the world; each explored within the context of their owners' remarkable lives.

Hardcover, March 2017 ISBN: 9781851498499
fter the huge success of Martin HM Schreiber's Madonna Nudes in the 1990s, the new edition Madonna Nudes + features recently discovered and never published photos of Madonna besides a selection of the best images published in the Madonna Nudes 1979 edition. Martin H. M. Schreiber rose to international prominence when his shots of a nude, pre-fame Madonna appeared in the September 1985 issue of Playboy magazine. While he is proud of the shots, Schreiber regrets not having had the chance to do a one-on-one shoot with Madonna. “I was taking pictures from behind my students, it wasn't as if I had a private session and could get her to do what I wanted her to do.” It was February 1979 when a quiet, shy young woman walked into Martin's studio to serve as a model for his photography class. The 'dancer', as she modestly described herself, was Madonna Ciccone. She arrived in New York in 1978 having bought a one-way ticket from Michigan, with only $35 in her pocket. Life modeling for art classes was a way of making a living. Little did Martin know at the time that this more or less chance encounter would lead to one of the most memorable photo shoots of all time.
Internationally acclaimed photographer Martin HM Schreiber (1946) was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and migrated to the United States in 1952. In 1960 Martin joined the US Army where he went to Photo Lab School. This was the beginning of his career and education. Taking up photography full time after the service, he went on to teach and lecture at two prestigious institutions: The School Of Visual Arts and The New School/ Parsons, both in New York City. Returning to his European roots, Schreiber presently resides outside of Paris in France. His works have been published internationally in every major magazine and newspaper and have been the subject of over eighty group and solo exhibitions. There have been fourteen books of his works published.

The author of numerous publications on jewelry and ethnology, he holds a doctorate in art history and is also a master goldsmith.
ewelry and the universe are bound together not just in the Ancient Greek sense of the word 'cosmos'; the sun, moon and stars invariably also found their way into representative forms of art jewelry around the world. While magical, mythological and religious references stood mainly at the forefront of ancient and non-European cultures, over the course of recent history it was on decorative grounds that jewelry pieces with cosmic motifs became so coveted. Whether Köchert in Vienna, Fabergé in St Petersburg or Lalique in Paris, the great jewelers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries were all inspired by heavenly forms. Today, interest in celestial bodies remains unbroken among contemporary internationally celebrated jewelry artists.
With his new, richly illustrated book, the long-standing head of the Jewellery Museum Pforzheim presents for the first time a comprehensive review on the star motif in jewelry - from Ancient Egypt to the present day.

ransforming the crayon drawings of childhood – of princesses and saints – into wearable sculptures, this Polish-born artist merges fantasy and fashion in vibrantly colorful costumes modeled here by older women in a oneof-a-kind fashion show set in the residential home where they live. Backstage photographs show make-up artists working in primary colors, the delight of the women as they turn into life-sized dolls, and the sheer neon wizardry of the costume designer from Oz.
Reminiscent of Fruits, the surprise hit fashion photo book published by Phaidon in 2001, these vivid, ultra-bright full-color portraits of the models in Koeke’s confections more than delight the eye. They celebrate the impish, outrageous child in all of us – however old we may be.

SPECS Hannibal Publishing 100 b&w illustrations 180 pages, 11.5 x 10.75in.
true icon of American photography, John G. Zimmerman (1927-2002) gave a unique panorama of American life and culture during the second half of the 20th century. This publication presents a selection of black-and-white pictures, shot between 1950 and 1978, which show the rough and uncut visual ingenuity of Zimmerman.
Essays are contributed by internationally renowned scholars and authors: Arne De Winde (Belgium), Francis Hodgson (GB), and Daniel Peña (US). Each presents a personal perspective on Zimmerman's massive oeuvre, offering an insight in its multifaceted character and technical mastery. Together they demonstrate the profound topicality of Zimmerman's work, as it not only cultivated the American Dream, but also exposed its collateral damage, its rusty undercoating. The authors trace how Zimmerman's gaze was obsessed with capturing moments and movements, but above all other people's gaze. What captivates and attracts us? How can and do objects and people exercise an enigmatic force, be it a rat catcher, a brand new car, or President Nixon? “Zimmerman could do it all and did. In his endless search for a new visual language he was always pushing the boundaries of the photographic medium: he created whatever he needed to make the seemingly impossible.”

ofreh is the Persian word for 'spread' - referring to the colorful arrangements of flowers, condiments and objects of spiritual or cultural importance that are displayed at Persian ceremonies. As the title promises, this book is a visual feast. Flush with lavish historical illustrations and contemporary photography, it documents Persian marriage and New Year celebrations in rich detail. Sofreh pays homage to ancient traditions, discussing the symbiosis of symbolism and culture. Despite their ancestral roots, the featured ceremonies are infused with life and creativity. Modern fabrics are welcomed alongside refined antique textiles, unique floral designs and unconventional centerpieces.
References to Persian poetry, literature, art and folklore stimulate the imagination, and the text is illuminated with exquisitely detailed extracts from old manuscripts, antique woven textiles and embroideries. Each volume centers around a series of highly elaborate sofreh creations. Together they comprise an extensive project, involving research into sofreh history by an eminent scholar, and the design and creation of stunning compositions. Book One is about the Persian New Year (Nowruz), which is celebrated on the first day of Spring. Book Two explores the elaborate settings for Persian marriage ceremonies (Aqd). These two lavishly illustrated volumes are devoted to showcasing sofreh compositions in all of their glory. Never before have the splendor and beauty of the sofreh been presented in such an intricate and novel fashion.

Chagall and Music Edited by Ambre Gauthier and Meret Meyer
his exhibition catalogue for a vibrantly colorful, multidisciplinary traveling show explores the profound connection between Chagall and music. As both subject and muse, this relationship has its roots in his family history, and in the Jewish culture of his native city, Vitebsk. This lavishly illustrated catalogue explores how music functioned as a central theme and inspiration in Chagall’s composition and color, beginning with paintings and sketches in 1911 through the 1960s. Included here are his theater commissions: the foyer panels for the Jewish Art Theatre (Moscow, 1919-1920), the ceiling of the Paris Opera (1964), and the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center (1966). His designs for the ballet, including Aleko (1942), The Firebird (1945), Daphnis and Chloé (1958) and The Magic Flute (1967), reveal the underlying synergy in his work between music, set, and costume. A wide selection of paintings, photographs, preparatory sketches, drawings, and ceramics (many from private collections) convey the centrality and importance of music and color in Chagall’s career.

Chagall Colour and Music Ambre Gauthier usic was a constant source of inspiration for Marc Chagall, both as a muse for creation and as a rhythm for composition. Intimately linked to his family world and the Jewish cultural context of his native town, Vitebsk, this intimate relationship with music would manifest itself consistently throughout his long life. In fact, music is omnipresent in his oeuvre: there is a sense of flow between his attentive listening to composers, and his scenic and architectural creations. This book underlines the vital influence of music on the artist's work from the 1960s to the 1920s.

he photographic art of James O'Mara can be approached in as many ways as the poetry residing in it. Discussing his work, O'Mara says, “I try to approach every adventure in life as if it were a dance. I need that pulse, that rhythm.” In fact, in his pictures we can perceive not only the moment captured by the camera lens, but also a 'before' and an 'after'. He has the ability to grasp the dynamism of the scene, even in perfectly still subjects: the ephemeral moment, the instant in which a figure reveals his or her nature, or events show new meanings.
This large-format volume is ideal for showcasing the author's finest shots, which span about 50 years: from the rock stars of the late Sixties (Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart, Joni Mitchell, and Carole King to name a few), to the more recent portraits of people, famous and otherwise, as well as captured moments of everyday life from around his beloved cities of Vancouver, Tucson, Los Angeles, Paris and, naturally, in Tuscany.
James O’Mara began his creative work as a painter before moving into documentary, editorial and commercial photography working with a diverse spectrum of American and European clients in fashion, portraiture, music and travel.

n 1997, to the shock of many, the Hermès family handpicked the eccentric and brilliant Martin Margiela – known for his avant-garde ideas and cultish following – to assume the design reigns for the storied luxury house. During his four-year tenure, the iconoclastic designer, as fashion writer Suzy Menkes put it, “produced for Hermès clothes that were elegant in an edgy way, making a clear statement about a masculine aesthetic but using tactile fabrics for a feminine allure.” From renegade to regal, Margiela’s ability to apply his unique design process at a fashion house with a vastly different sensibility marks him as a great designer – one who understands traditional forms but always with an eye to the transformational.
“Anybody who's aware of what life is in a contemporary world is influenced by Margiela.” Marc Jacobs

he figure of “Lolita” embodies one of the most fascinating and ambiguous aspects of femininity. We see her as womanhood in transit: the passage from childhood to adolescence, from a non-sexual being to one who desires. Named after the eponymous novel by Vladimir Nabakov published in 1955, Lolitas have ever since shared a subtle appeal expressed by whims, sidelong glances, and delicious pouts. This transitional creature has been immortalized in fashion and cinema from Kubrick to Lana del Rey, from Jane Birkin to David Hamilton. This book draws attention to the ways this archetypal character continues to influence the look of adolescent allure and the stylists who interpret it best.
An independent researcher in the field of the history of costume, Giulia Pivetta (Venice 1984) has curated and contributed to various publications on the social history of fashion, combining research and training as a fashion designer. She teaches at the department of Fashion and Design at NABA, Milan.

The work of Eric Owen Moss Architects is about “making it new”: the aspiration to uncover new ways to think, to feel, to see, to understand architecture. In a unique approach to design, the Los Angeles-based firm re-imagines the traditional spaces of architecture, offering alternatives that parallel contemporary changes in patterns of living and working. Included in the monograph are award-winning works from more than 40 years: buildings, master plans, exhibits, and scholarship (lectures, publications, education). Illustrated extensively with rich color photography and detailed drawings, this volume illuminates Moss’s avoidance of customary organizational strategies, standardized design solutions, and repetitive style. Instead, the book delves into the firm’s fascination with individual buildings as well as the evolving interrelationship between building and city, fertile ground for novel design tactics and techniques that reshape the discourse of international architecture.

Every Product Tells a Story Untold Matters of Award-winning Design Peter Zec Good products do not appear from nowhere. In the beginning, there is always an idea, which turns into the final product after a long development process and countless prototypes. But where do these ideas come from and how do designers get their motivation? Using a total of 21 examples, all of which received a distinction in the Red Dot Award: Product Design, the book explains where the inspiration for the concepts derives from and which human needs are fulfilled by the products. The works are divided into three groups: iconic models, material and basic needs, and social responsibility. SPECS Red Dot Edition 84 color illustrations, 108 pages, 8.25 x 11in.

splendid catalogue for a truly remarkable collection of Far Eastern ivories ranging from religious iconography to exquisite sculptures produced for nineteenth-century collectors.
Sir Victor Sassoon (1881-1961) lived an extraordinary and colorful life and left a remarkable legacy. He created a trust to preserve his collection of ivories for the benefit of UK citizens. Since its foundation and under the guardianship of the dedicated trustees, the collection has grown by the addition of significant specimens that originally went unrepresented. Chinese Ivory Carvings presents 350 of its most significant artefacts, each illustrated and discussed. Four introductory essays explore the acquisition of the pieces, placing the ivories in their historical and cultural context. In this scholarly celebration of Sassoon's bequest, one can appreciate some of the many facets of Chinese culture, both religious and secular. Including minutely carved 'devil's work' spheres, massive figures and exuberantly carved vases, the book is also testament to the technical skills of the craftsmen who produced these wonderful objects.

The Golden Age Book Dutch Painting Jeroen Giltaij Gives a complete overview of the art from one of the most remarkable periods in Dutch history.
The seventeenth century is often known as the Dutch Golden Age, not only because of the great wealth the country amassed but also because of the impressive cultural flowering. The art of painting in particular reached a high point. Throughout the century, countless highly talented artists created masterpieces that still evoke our admiration more than four centuries later. Their paintings are the jewels in the collections of museums all over the world. SPECS WBooks 371 color illustrations, 400 pages, 8 x 8in. Hardcover, available now ISBN: 9789462581562 $34.95

Painting after Postmodernism: Belgium - USA investigates why so many believed Marcel Duchamp when he made his infamous statement of 1918: that painting was dead. After all, as this book goes on to show, Duchamp was wrong. In the decades before and after World War II, Picasso, Matisse, Mirรณ and the New York School continued to make monumental mural scale paintings on the level of the greatest art of the past. However, in the politically radical 1960s and 1970s it once again became fashionable to toll the death knell for painting, now perceived as the product of bourgeois culture. In its place galleries and museums defined the avant-garde as conceptual art, video, mixed media and installations, all of which denied painting its position of pre-eminence. Painting was reduced to just another form of Postmodernist endeavor. Barbara Rose investigates how contemporary artists rediscovered the art of painting, juxtaposing works from Belgian and American artists to create a cross-cultural dialogue.

Birte Kaufmann lives and works as a freelance photographer in Cologne and Berlin. Her focus is on reportage, documentary and portrait photography. British-born Chris Killip has been a photographer since 1964. Today he lives in Cambridge, MA and teaches at Harvard University.
n Ireland, around 25,000 people still live in temporary settlements in the style of itinerant workers far removed from the amenities of civilization. Moving from place to place without electricity or running water, their livelihood depends on horse breeding and hunting. Even as they keep their own language alive, this minority tries to find its way along the fringes of the settled world.
In 2011 the photographer Birte Kaufmann was permitted to enter this insular world, even, on occasion, to travel and live with them. Her images – part reportage, part documentary – find the balance between observation and involvement, and between strangeness and the very real.

Higher Ground Carl De Keyzer, Philippe Claudel
✚ A disturbing yet brilliant imagining of the consequences of climate change, presented alongside a fictional story by Philippe Claudel ✚ A new title by Carl De Keyzer, member of the Magnum collective ✚ The sequel to his magnum opus, Moments Before the Flood
SPECS Lannoo Publishers 220 color illustrations 240 pages, 13 x 13in. Hardcover, February 2017 Text in English, Franch and Dutch
n Moments Before the Flood, Carl De Keyzer portrayed a Europe on the cusp of drowning, flooded due to climate change. In Higher Ground, the flood has already passed. His images show people that have fled to the high mountains, depicting a fictional world of tomorrow. A large portion of the work is irony, but it bears an uncomfortably close semblance to scientific predictions of the future.
In 2006, when Keyzer first began working on Moments Before the Flood, there were a lot of doubts about the extent of global warming. Since then however, the effects of this inconvenient truth have increased by an alarming degree. Where it was once presumed that the sea level would rise 37 cm by 2050, now scientists estimate that there will be a 3-to-4-meter raise. Higher Ground explores what the world might look like if this happens, encouraging the reader to think about the impact of climate change. The images were taken in Austria, Switzerland, Germany, France and Spain. French top author Philippe Claudel wrote a new fictional story especially for this book. Text in English, French, and Dutch.
Carl De Keyzer has been a member of the world-renowned photo agency Magnum since 1994. His pictures have been internationally published and exposed. The permanent threat of decay in modern society and the impact of power on everyday life are frequent themes in his work. Samples of his work can be found at www.carldekeyzer.com. Philippe Claudel is a renowned author and director. He wrote Les Âmes Grises and Le Rapport de Brodeck and directed Il y a longtemps que je t'aime and Avant l'hiver.

ondon Secrets unlocks the city's most fascinating secrets. Janelle McCulloch strips away bricks, mortar and tarmac to uncover parts of the capital that even born and bred Londoners may never have seen. In the shadow of the Gherkin, Cheesegrater and Walkie-Talkie skyscrapers are medieval churches, crypts and the curios of Postman's Park - proof that altruism can exist in the Square Mile. In St James's, a stone's throw from the glitz and glamor of Soho are hidden squares and shops dating from a gentler age - purveyors of fine wine, gentleman's apparel and bowler hats. The cobbled mews of Marylebone and Hampstead Village reveal unexpected treasures, rarely seen interiors and a rural idyll amid the urban hum, while the esoteric collections at the Horniman, Sir John Soane's Museum and exotica of Leighton House make you feel you are in an entirely different country altogether. The author reveals the traditions and quirks that have survived to this day, from the freedom of the City of London allowing you to herd sheep through the town, to the "market ouvert" of Bermondsey Market, original home of the London wheelerdealer.

111 Places in Cambridge That You Shouldn’t Miss
Rosalind Horton and Sally Simmons What do movable dolls' eyes have to do with a Catholic church? Where could you meet Plain Bob Maximus and Surprise Major? Why does just one person know where Oliver Cromwell's head is buried? And where is a dog a very large cat? The answers to all these questions lie in Cambridge, which combines the magnificence of a medieval university with the dynamism of a hightechnology hub. Tens of thousands of visitors flock to Cambridge every year to see the colleges, go punting on the river, and shop. But there is much more to Cambridge than its university and Silicon Fen.
Tim Rawle, edited by John Adamson
An architectural history of Cambridge telling the story of its growth from Roman times, profusely illustrated with photographs of the city, university and colleges. Cambridge is a city of contrasts. Both a small market town in the east of England and the home of an ancient university of world renown, it is at once provincial and universal in its appeal, local and international in outlook. But what made this place in a remote corner of England so attractive to those who first settled there? How did Town and Gown grow up together? How did Cambridge evolve into the bustling, university city it is today?

Food writer, photographer and graphic designer Regula Ysewijn runs the blog 'Miss Foodwise'. She is also the author of the book Pride and Pudding, which was highly praised by Jamie Oliver, Fiona Beckett and many others. She lives in Belgium but often works from London. She is a true Anglophile, but at the same time she also cherishes her Flemish roots. This book is an ode to Belgian popular culture. It is the result of countless visits to countless traditional Belgian cafes, where Regula talked to the regular guests and snapped many beautiful, touching photos. Throughout her book you can feel her love and passion for cultural ephemerality: things, places, and livelihoods in danger of fading. Regula wants you to know that these traditional Belgian cafes are much more than the brick and mortar that holds them together; they can be the epicenter of a community, standing strong even when their walls crumble and their decor ages, as they wait for the moment when the out-offashion becomes fashionable again.

In Los Angeles County there are more than seven million registered vehicles. Everybody knows about highway traffic here. But where do all those cars go to rest? Gerd Ludwig is a night owl and doesn't need much sleep, so he sometimes goes out at night to photograph "sleeping cars". His chosen cars are loners. They command their own space. They are not crowded in with others to have a presence. After a while he recognizes their sleeping patterns. The cars in this project are photographed as he finds them. Their covers are like nightgowns, though some sleep in the nude. Some take daytime naps and a few lucky ones get to sleep together. Occasionally, proud car owners ask him if he wants them to move or uncover the car for the photograph, but Ludwig says, "I generally don't like them to disturb the cars in their sleep".

He sees what others overlook. He creates magic out of nothing. From the most banal everyday scenes he manages to form images that seduce his audience, putting them under an extraordinary spell. Russian photographer Emil Gataullin is a master of lyrical black-and-white photography. His theme is the Russian village: a life far away from big decisions and sensations. Gataullin's work is at the same time documentary and photographic poem; it dances on the thin line between deliberate sparseness, objectivity and restraint, and affectionate composition. Gataullin's pictures neither glorify nor denigrate. They are a declaration of love for a Russia beyond Moscow. They prescribe nothing for the viewer - and are all the more mysterious for that.

This catalogue showcases some of the finest examples of metalwork from the American Arts and Crafts period. A glimpse into the past of one of North America's most revered art movements, it explores the dichotomy between industrialism and aesthetics. The Arts and Crafts movement in America was marked by the spirit of reform and the belief that traditional craftsmanship could ennoble a society overcome by rampant industrialization. Simplicity in style and honesty in construction had the power to transform a utilitarian object into a beautiful one, enhancing the lives of both maker and user. Arts and Crafts Metalwork showcases the work of eleven designers and craftsmen from the period between 1900 and 1930, including Gustav Stickley, Karl Kipp, Dirk van Erp, and the Roycrofters. Color photographs detail more than two hundred metal objects, all selected from the Two Red Roses Foundation's extensive collection, while archival images of design sketches and magazine advertisements highlight the philosophy and working methods behind these artisans and their creations.

Sylloge of Aksumite Coins in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford
From the Collection of the Two Red Roses Foundation Susan J. Montgomery
A study of beautiful tiles made in North America during the Arts and Crafts movement. Like other Arts and Crafts creations, these tiles counterract the soullessness of mass-production on an industrial scale. Each of the sixteen tile makers represented in the Two Red Roses Collection (including Grueby, William Morris, Newcomb, Paul Revere Pottery, and Rookwood) sought to balance the ideals of fine design and craftsmanship with the pressures of efficient production and financial viability. Profusely illustrated, Arts and Crafts Tile thoroughly documents the Two Red Roses Foundation collection. An appendix provides concise histories of each of the tile companies and the talented men and women who designed and crafted these remarkable works of art.
Wolfgang Hahn and Vincent West
This book focusses on the Ashmolean's collection of Aksumite coins, arguably the greatest collection of its kind worldwide. It has been catalogued and presented by the two most important living experts of this coinage. No other book approaches this level of academic expertise on significant Aksumite coinage.

Italian Maiolica and Europe
Tibetan Clothing and Jewellery
Medieval and Later Italian Pottery in the Ashmolean Museum Timothy Wilson
Nomads and Farmers of Amdo and Kham Gina Corrigan
This book is the culmination of nearly thirty years' work in caring for, studying, and developing the collections in this Museum by Timothy Wilson, long-time Keeper of Western Art. The Ashmolean collections have their origins in the collection of C.D.E. Fortnum (1820-1899), but have been developed further in the last quarter-century, so that they can claim to be one of the top such collections of Renaissance ceramics worldwide. This book, containing 289 catalogue entries, will completely encompass the Museum's collection. In addition it will include catalogue entries for some seventy selected pieces of pottery. It will also include an essay by Kelly Domoney of Cranfield University, and Elisabeth Gardner of the Ashmolean's Conservation Department, on the technical analysis and conservation history of some pieces in the collection.
An extensively illustrated and up-to-date look at Tibetan clothing, jewelry and accessories, from the historical regions of Amdo and Kham. A remarkable book, dedicated to the intricacies of Tibetan costume. This book takes a textile-centric viewpoint, but also branches out into the lives of local Tibetan people who share their stories through interviews. Tibetan Clothing and Jewellery is unique in its reflection of historical material. It combines this academic knowledge base with original observations and wide-ranging interviews with nomads and farmers, all of which center around costumes locally possessed and worn by Tibetans today.

Rugs & Art
Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome James Harper and Marlene Eidelheit
Tribal Bird Rugs & Others: A Buenos Aires Collection Abel Trybiarz
A book recording a South American private collection of Oriental rugs, fully illustrated in color with accompanying text by the collector. This high quality collection includes several 'best of type' pieces: an interesting individual take on the psychology of collecting.This fine tribal rug collection was built over many years by a Buenos Aires collector.
Beginning with the discovery of the oldest complete rug, dated to the fourth/fifth century BC, the reader is taken on a journey through the weaving history of the nomadic peoples of Iran, the Caucasus, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan, up to c.1900.
The first in-depth treatment of the tapestries of the Life of Christ, one of the grandest monuments of seventeenth century Rome commissioned by Cardinal Francesco Barberini. This book is the result of an intense conservation effort, which restored these magnificent works of art to their former glory after a fire burnt two of the tapestries and damaged four more in 2001.

DECORATIVE ARTS / WATCHES
The Marshall Collection of Worcester Porcelain in the Ashmolean Museum
Henry Marshall assembled the collection between the two World Wars. In the years that followed, he sought to represent as comprehensive a range of patterns as possible, with minimal duplication, so that his collection would become a true reference work in itself. Every piece was acquired for specific purpose, many of them either to further his knowledge or because they were so rare. This catalogue, like the collection itself, seeks to present early Worcester porcelain to collectors and the wider public in a systematic way. It describes, classifies, and reproduces every item in the Marshall Collection. It does not seek to present detailed new research, but to record the state of knowledge about the subject at the time of writing. SPECS
Researched and written by Andy McConnell, journalist and longserving glass specialist on BBC TV's Antiques Roadshow, The Decanter is born of twenty years' extensive research.

The Magic of Watches A Smart Introduction to Fine Watchmaking Louis Nardin
Kadri Mälk Testament Kadri Mälk, Tamara Luuk, Tanel Veenre What is a beautiful watch? How do you make a good choice? The Magic of Watches explains how and why these little objects are so precious, fascinating and exciting. The book presents paradoxes: why a one-million-dollar watch might be less precise and more fragile than one that costs 15 dollars. It comes back to the origins of the measurement of time: how did we go from the water clock to the wristwatch? The book goes on to technique: how does a mechanical movement work? How does a quartz one work?; delves into details: what is a “complication” and when do we speak about “chronometer”?; showcases art: how do we enamel a dial? The Magic of Watches is unique: it focuses in detail on the basics in order to understand and love watches better.
An essential publication on the Estonian jewellery artist Kadri Mälk, who as professor at the Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn has significantly influenced the European jewellery scene. Text in English and Estonian. New pieces from Kadri Mälk's prolific creative phase of recent years. Detailed photographs from offbeat vantage points open up new perspectives on her jewelry.

Helga Zahn Drawings & Jewellery Petra Hölscher; edited by Die Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum and Stadt Schwarzenbach an der Saale
New Jewellery from IdarOberstein 6 Gemstone | Jewellery Ute Eitzenhöfer, Theo Smeets
An exceptional selection of works from the last ten years by students, graduates and teachers from the Hochschule Trier in IdarOberstein. With over 400 images this richly illustrated book is a milestone in 21st century art jewelry presentation. Many never before seen photographs including the fascinating ‘Remake’ project which ties together jewelry and fine art. Accompanies the exhibition at the Stadtmuseum Simeonstift Trier (DE), 27.11.2016-26.2.2017
Helga Zahn (1936-1985) was one of the leading jewelry artists in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s. The autodidact, who was raised in Schwarzenbach an der Saale, had a preference for silver and natural materials such as pebbles. Her oneoff jewelry is made unique by the clarity of simple geometric forms, the lightness and simplicity of the combinations, and a reduced color palette. With novel systematic thinking, in the mid 1960s she revolutionized the studio jewelry movement that was forming across the globe. With around a hundred jewelry objects, this comprehensive review invites you on a journey of rediscovery and reappraisal of this exceptional artist.

In the field of design, nothing stands still forever. Cycles come and go, reconfiguring the old to create the new. What was once hidden is now boldly displayed. The raw materials that comprise modern interiors have been given centre stage, handicraft is no longer considered 'oldfashioned', but has instead become a key instigator for design, and dark colours are back in vogue. Materials are allowed to have patina again, bearing the signs of their age and use. Industrial, rusted iron; brushed granite; untreated wood... It is all coming back! The retro revival promises to inject new energy into the design world, making pure beauty stand out. Design blogger Irene Schampaert guides you in discovering these exciting new trends.

The Design Process and the Art of the Single Family Richard Bertman
How do our minds work when we design? How do we organize and assimilate information, create and evaluate options, and make decisions? These questions have fascinated and absorbed architect and sculptor Richard Bertman (FAIA) since his graduate school days. Now, after a 40year career, Bertman has used the design of a vacation house as an experiment to explore these questions. The result, documented in The Design Process and the Art of the Single Family Home, is a fascinating and revealing insight into the creative process. With detailed notes and sketches, Bertman charts each stage of the design process, questioning and examining why certain decisions are made, how problems are solved, and generally exploring the processes involved in creative thinking.

Giuliano da Sangallo (1443-1516) headed a dynasty of Florentine architects who played a central role in the development of Renaissance architecture.

This academic guide is sumptuously illustrated, making for a reading experience both highly educative and enjoyable. It introduces this old master in terms accessible enough for the new student to grasp, but will also be of interest to those who are already aware of Sangallo's legacy, as it contains a wealth of insights from a cross-continental team of scholars.

Boris Velikovsky (1878-1937) Architect of the Russian Avant-Garde Elena Ovsyannikova, Nikolai Vassiliev With his residential buildings, office blocks, schools and factories, Boris Velikovsky (1878-1937) made a definitive contribution to Russian avantgarde architecture. His early constructions, such as Gribov House in Moscow, are still very much bound to Russian Neoclassicism, yet since the Revolution of 1917, he increasingly designed Constructivist architecture. One example is his Gostorg Management Building, distinguished by glass facades, the functional division of space and use of state-of-the-art materials. Furthermore in the garden city of Druzhba for instance, Velikovsky intensively engaged with new ideas in town planning.

ombay Art Deco Architecture presents a treasury of Art Deco buildings comprising residential, commercial and civic architecture. These monuments were created during the mid '30s and '40s, a glamorous and optimistic era that predated the official end of the British Raj. The architects, a small list of first-generation Indian architects and builders, were mostly educated in English schools and trained in western architectural traditions. Impatient with the British reluctance to shed the Gothic and Indo-Saracenic architectural styles that had dominated Imperial Bombay's urban landscape, these visionaries were determined to imbue the city with a new modern style.

The multifarious relationships between drawing and jewelry constitute a largely unknown aspect of contemporary art jewelry. Private Confessions, the first publication on this topic, therefore focuses on graphic work by wellknown and aspiring artists, opening up new perspectives through its juxtaposition with jewelry objects. In addition, it also deals with drawing as an artistic action and as autonomous expression, transgressing disciplinary boundaries through experimental expansion and the pursuit to broaden familiar terrain. It accompanies aesthetic reflection and exemplifies the creative back-and-forth that enables intimate dialogue with artistic impulses. A groundbreaking work, which showcases the fusion of applied and fine arts before your very eyes! Text in English and German.

The graphic work by Wolfgang Gäfgen (born 1936 in Hamburg) encompasses more than fifty years. From the very beginning it combined the meticulous observation skills of his contemporaries with a virtuosity in drawing, something exemplary in contemporary art and still rarely seen today. His interest in superficies transforms quite unremarkable everyday things into exquisite precious items, which have set aside their original functional purpose to develop a defiantly ironic life of their own. Here, Gäfgen's drawings, along with his printed graphics and photography, which form the core of his artistic oeuvre, will be extensively acknowledged for the very first time. After studying in Hamburg and Stuttgart (1956-1961) Wolfgang Gäfgen moved to Paris. In 1977 he participated with a block of drawings in documenta 6. From 1983 to 2002 he held a professorship at the State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart. Text in German and French.

Founded in 1976, the Freie Kunstakademie Nürtingen (FKN) is a unique institution in the liberal educational landscape of Germany. The vision of humanizing the individual and society through art may be viewed in the context of educational-political debates of the time, in which Joseph Beuys also founded his Free International University (FIU). Since then the FKN has continuously been refining itself. The courses currently on offer include painting, drawing and sculpture as well as ceramics, performance art, new media, textile media and art research. The publication to mark forty years of the institution presents current developments as well as milestones and turning points in the academy's history in richly illustrated essays, portraits and interviews. A further section deals with the location, the MelchiorAreal. Here, two hundred years ago, the first cotton-spinning mill in Württemberg was founded. The building's conversion is a supreme example of the repurposing of industrial property. Text in German.

SPECS Ashmolean Museum Publications 79 color illustrations, 68 pages, 8.75 x 11in. Hardcover, January 2017 ISBN: 9781910807118 $30.00
Liu Dan is one of twenty-first-century China's leading artists. Born in 1953 in one of China's ancient capitals, Nanjing, he received his school education from the then recently-established People's Republic of China. His academic training was based on Western methods, while at home his grandfather taught him the traditional art of calligraphy. In the early 1980s he moved to America, returning to Beijing in 2005. As a result, he has lived his whole life passing between the discordant worlds of East and West. His familiarity with both sides of the Pacific filter into his art, although they are not necessarily emphasized. For example, the exhibition featured in this book focuses on Dan's response to the Italian Renaissance. It is particularly fitting that Dan should choose the Ashmolean to host his works. The Ashmolean houses one of the world's finest collections of Old Master drawings, and a selection of Italian metalpoint drawings from the collection is included in his exhibition.

The Ashmolean Museum and the Albertina are collaborating on a two-part exhibition project that will examine anew the role and the significance of drawing in Raphael's career. The Ashmolean holds the greatest collection of Raphael drawings in the world, and the Albertina is the custodian of a major collection including some of the most beautiful and important of the artist's sketches. Taken together, the two collections provide extraordinary resources that, amplified by carefully-selected international loans, will allow us to transform our understanding of the art of Raphael.

SPECS Editions Gallimard 300 color illustrations, 432 pages, 6.5 x 9in. Hardcover, available now ISBN: 9782072697296 $55.00
This art book sheds light on political agitations, rebellions, riots and collective emotions, which have inspired artists in various media: writersâ€™ manuscripts, paintings and drawings, engraving, photographs and films. Uprisings is based on a cross-disciplinary exhibition on the theme of collective emotions and political events involving crowds of people in revolt: social disorder, political agitation, uprisings, rebellions, revolutions, and riots - disturbances of all kinds. The book investigates the notion of the representation of the people in both the aesthetic and the political senses of the word 'representation'. The notion of uprising is dealt with through various media: writers' manuscripts, paintings, drawings, engravings, photographs, and films. Particular attention is paid to films because, from Griffith and Eisenstein through to the moviemakers of today, the representation of people in revolt has been one of the great subjects of cinema.

Painting was one of the defining factors in the formation of Congolese national culture during the seventies and eighties. Looking back on works from this era, we gain a clear impression of the country's collective memory. The exhibition of paintings featured in this book explores the development of Congolese society from 1968-2012. Portraits, landscapes and allegorical paintings alternate with urban scenes, historical figures and critical reflections on religion, politics and social problems. Humor is never far away. Historical objects, photos, drawings and archive footage provide a broader perspective, and similarities to older art forms and other genres from Congo are clearly visible. The importance of popular paintings is not fundamentally different from that of more traditionally respected art; both are crucial reflections on their contexts, and informed the development of Congolese society.

This reference work includes some 400 works by 150 artists, bringing together for the first time post-war art from both Western and Eastern Europe. Experts reveal the various evolutions and movements within this period, from the mourning of the first post-war years to British Pop Art, and political art leading up to the revolutions of the late 1960s.

Hans Op de Beeck Hans Op de Beeck and others
Hans Op de Beeck has exhibited at the Venice Biennale, the Tate Modern, The Smithsonian, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Buenos Aires, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Espace Louis Vuitton in Munchen, and many other high profile venues. Ever since he won the Young Belgian Art Prize for Painting in 2001, he has been praised by the international art scene. This book collects his oeuvre, rendering his multidisciplinary works in two dimensions for your reading pleasure.
Johan Tahon is an experienced artist; he has exhibited his work worldwide since 1994. In 1996 he was discovered by art curator and museum director Jan Hoet. At the internationally renowned exhibition 'De Rode Poort' he was given the chance to interact with other world famous artists, and since then he has only improved: creating solo exhibitions as well as collaborative exhibitons with artists such as Ilya Kabakov, Günther Förg, Tony Cragg and Stephan Balkenhol. His sculptures remind the onlooker of human figures - however, there is a disturbing disconnect: their form is not natural. With his long silhouettes, Tahon connects the artist with the beholder of his works through negative space.

Elizabeth Blackadder Philip Long and John Leighton This extensively illustrated book is devoted to the art of Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, one of Scotland's best loved painters. Blackadder's art explores a diverse range of subjects through many mediums. The artist draws on experiences of foreign travel, as well as plant forms and animals closer to home, to produce highly original works that appear to breathe with their own life. Her deeply analytical eye allows her to see the underlying structure, design and color harmony in both the exotic and the everyday. This book tells the fascinating story of her career, from her early days as a student in Edinburgh, and her friendships with Scottish painters William Gillies, William MacTaggart and Anne Redpath, to her very recent work.

Daubigny and Impressionism Frances Fowle Known today for his atmospheric views of the river Oise, Charles Franรงois Daubigny was a pioneer of modern landscape painting and an important precursor of French Impressionism. Although commercially highly successful he was often criticized for his broad, sketch-like handling and unembellished view of nature, and was dubbed the leader of 'the school of the impression'. As a result he drew the attention of the next generation of artists, among them Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh, who were inspired by Daubigny's frank naturalism, bold compositions and technical innovations. Theirs was an artistic dialogue which spanned thirty years, from the early 1860s to the end of Van Gogh's short life. SPECS National Galleries of Scotland 22 color illustrations, 36 pages, 9 x 8in.

British realist art of the 1920s and 1930s is visually stunning - strong, seductive and demonstrating extraordinary technical skill. Despite this, it is often overshadowed by abstract art. This book presents the very first overview of British realist painting of the period, showcasing outstanding works from private and public collections across the UK. Of the forty artists featured in the show, many were major figures in the 1920s and 1930s but later passed out of fashion as abstraction and Pop Art became the dominant trends in the post-war years. In the last decade their work has re-emerged and interest in them has grown. Interwar realist art embraces a number of different styles, but is characterized by fine drawing, meticulous craftsmanship, a tendency towards classicism and an aversion to impressionism and visible brushwork. Featuring many Scottish and women artists, this book promises a fascinating insight into this captivating period of British art. Exhibition to be held at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh from 1 July to 29 October 2017.

The Stained Glass Museum Highlights from the Collection Jasmine Allen Located in the magnificent south triforium of Ely Cathedral, The Stained Glass Museum is the only museum in the UK solely dedicated to the ancient art and craft of stained glass, which has been practised in Britain for almost 1,500 years. Once almost solely confined to church buildings and manor houses whose patrons could afford luxurious colored glass windows, from the 19th century stained glass also became popular in secular buildings. In recent times it has been used to enliven and form part of the main structure of corporate buildings, hotels, community and shopping centres.

To mark its fifth centennial anniversary, this catalogue provides a varied selection of some of the greatest treasures in the College Library. Unlike Oxford's older colleges, Corpus Christi was founded with Renaissance ideals: it would promote the ‘New Learning’ current in Europe, and would equip its students to read Hebrew and Greek - the original languages of the Bible - as well as Latin. To this end the College's Founder and its first President began to fill the Library with an astonishing collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed books in these three languages. Most of the books included date from the 12th to the 16th centuries, of which a significant proportion represent the Bible in a variety of different translations and versions. Others are later, including unique works that represent scientific discoveries made by astronomers including Galileo and Sir Isaac Newton.

Alte and Neue Pinakothek Munich

Director's Choice Dr Bernhard Maaz
The Neoclassical design of the Alte Pinakothek by Leo von Klenze (1836) had a seminal influence on museum architecture in Europe. It provides a wonderful setting for the works of the Old Masters housed within. After the second museum building (completed in 1853) was destroyed during the Second World War, the architect Alexander von Branca created today's Neue Pinakothek (1981). Its formal expression, in the idiom of a medieval fortress, and impressive exhibition galleries have made it a classic of Postmodernism.
The Chester Beatty Library is rated among the top 10 places to visit in Dublin. Once the private library of Sir Alfred Chester Beatty (1875-1968), it is today a museum and one of Ireland's national cultural institutions. The collections comprise manuscripts, rare books, and other treasures from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. The Library's focus on global artistic heritage is unique in Ireland. Fionnuala Croke, director of this exquisite collection, has selected over 30 works that will give the reader a sense of the quality and variety of Beatty's acquisitions, while featuring her own personal favorites.

James Oles & Jeffrey Collins
This first retrospective on Van Soomâ€™s life and career includes a series of discussions and interviews with the artist, shedding light on the influences, philosophy, thinking and themes that have been vital for his artistic development. Van Soom has created more than 50 monumental works for the public space in Belgium and the Netherlands, among which some very well know sights, such as Walhalla (1993, Antwerp), The Man from Atlantis (2003, Brussels), The Wharfinger (2005, Zwolle), and Walking to Magdalena (2012, Ostend).
Friedeberg has displayed his art at over 100 solo exhibitions and close to 120 collective expos, in the top museums and galleries around the world. Known for his surrealist work, his most recognizable piece is the Hand-Chair: a sculpture/chair designed for people to sit on the palm, using the fingers as back and arm rests. If Friedeberg's most infamous statement is true, and art is dead because nothing new is being produced, then his startling work must be a resurrection. Text in English and Spanish.

Cave of the Immortals
Oishii! Essen in Japan
The Poetry and Prose of Bamboo Painter Wen Tong (1019-1079) Jonathan Chaves
Inés de Castro, Toko Shimomura, Uta Werlich (eds)
'Oishii!' - 'Delicious!' is the most common word in Japan to describe food. Expressing culinary taste goes hand in hand with the social and cultural identity of those eating it. Food is much more than nutrition, it is tied to all areas of human life and illustrates the various aspects of a society and its culture. Hitherto partly undisclosed treasures from the Linden-Museum Stuttgart and valuable examples from home and abroad draw attention to the rich material culture of food and drink in Japan.
Wen Tong (1019-1079) is considered the supreme master of bamboo painting in the history of Chinese art. This book is the first in any Western language to present translations of selected poems by Wen, over 300 of them, as well as examples of his prose writings. A particular revelation is Wen's unusual degree of interest in what might be called the Folk Religion of China, for example, ceremonies of supplication to various gods, especially Dragon deities, to send rain in time of drought.

A Magic World
New Visions of Indian Painting In Tribute to Ananda Coomaraswamy's Rajput Painting Molly Emma Aitken
India's Archaeological Heritage since Independence Nayanjot Lahiri
In the 100 years since Ananda Coomaraswamy wrote his seminal two-volume, Rajput Painting, the field of Indian painting studies has gone through a period of explosive discovery. From the scholarly establishment of a framework of schools and periods, to the expansion of knowledge about individual artists and workshops, the movement has been documented in ever-increasing depth. This centenary offers a chance to rethink the very nature of the categories, methods, and indeed the passions that guided past scholars, whose dedication has brought Indian painting to the fore of art today.
India's success in conserving its archaeological heritage will be assessed, in a book that does not shy from the question of what has been lost in the past. It begins with looking at the impact of Partition on monuments, museum collections and the nature of archeological research itself. It will provide an overview and an analysis of archeological investigations, as well as methods and ideas used in collecting and processing data. Along with work done by government institutions, attention will be drawn to community practices that have helped preserve objects of antiquarian interest.

Cosmic Dance in Stone
Ratha Yatra Chariot Festival of Jagannatha in Puri Subas Pani
There was a time when man respected the landscape, seeing it as a reflection of his devotion to the creator of this universe. These primordial men also practised a lifestyle that did not adversely affect the sustaining powers of the earth. Cosmic Dance in Stone is a collection of photographs and illustrations that show how their creations, wonderful landscapes of stone, have been devised to transcend space and time. It is an attempt to discover how the designers of the past envisaged structures that could link us to the stars and help us realize the nature of our existence.

Androgyny & Female Impersonation in India
Katya & The Prince of Siam
Nari Bhav Tutun Mukherjee and Niladri R Chatterjee
A cross-cultural exploration of one of the most fascinating subjects to be questioned and criticized in the 21st century: the gender binary. This volume discusses concepts of androgyny that permeate the Indian cultural ethos, which are expressed through female impersonators not only in religion, theatre and dance but also in contemporary performative mediums like films, television, and the internet. Also contains interviews with performers of female impersonation.

Making use of much hitherto unpublished archive material such as letters, diaries and photographs, the book gives a fascinating insight into life in both pre-revolutionary Russia and the Siamese court.

U Thong City of Gold
Chinese Porcelain for Siam; Discover Thai Art Dawn F Rooney
The Ancient History Anna Bennett
Bencharong, a unique class of Chinese export ware, was made exclusively for Thai royalty and the ruling elite in the late 18th and 19th centuries. Enamelled porcelain containers and dishes for the table and boudoir are resplendent in kaleidoscopic colors inspired by verdant, tropical vegetation. Although Bencharong belongs both in place and time to the broader tradition of Chinese export art for the European and American markets, it is distinctively Thai in style and aesthetics. A wealth of lavish illustrations, many never before published, are visual revelations of Bencharong's splendor.
U Thong, north of Bangkok, has been an important site for over 2,000 years, as witnessed by the discovery of a 3rd-century Roman coin. The moated city was connected to the Chin river, thereby gaining access to international trade routes. This publication brings a new perspective to the study of ancient gold from U Thong. The author is a trained research metallurgy scientist, and these skills have been brought to bear on the highly significant corpus of early gold artifacts found in and around the city, the largest accumulation of such artifacts from any of the ancient muang of Thailand.

Knockings At My Heart
Life, Love and Death on Tanzania's Hanang Plains Charles Lane
Unpublished Poems of Rabindranath Tagore Rabindranath Tagore/Edited by Nilanjan Banerjee
In the 1980s, Charles Lane had the privilege of living among the Barabaig, nomadic cattle herders in north central Tanzania. Despite being known as killers by their enemies, he found them to be generous and caring companions. This beautifully illustrated book shows the Barabaig's artistry in many facets of their lives, and provides a fascinating anthropological record. This rich and hitherto sustainable culture is now under threat, ensuring that this book will become an invaluable record of a fast disappearing way of life.
The first ever collection of Rabindranath Tagore's unpublished short poems. Known as 'The Bard of Bengal', Tagore was central to the modernization of Indian poetry. Celebrated for his advocation of Indian independence, his founding of the Visva-Bharati University, and his astoundingly broad oeuvre, which included art, poetry, music and prose, Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. His work resonates with audiences to this day, both eastern and western alike.

In many cases, the native language is an LLD (Language of Lesser Diffusion): i.e. one that has relatively few speakers in one specific location or geographical area. The need for legal interpreters and translators of LLDs is great, and still rising. The TraiLLD consortium has analyzed existing strategies in organizing training in order to test their efficiency, to improve them, and to develop alternative approaches.

Japan & Belgium An Itinerary of Mutual Inspiration Wille Vande Walle and others Fifty years ago, Belgium and Japan signed their first treaty. They have been important economic partners for each other ever since. As a result, the reciprocal exchange of artistic influence between these countries flourished: Belgian artists were inspired by 'Japanisme', while Japanese writers read the works of Maurice Maeterlinck and Emiile Verhaeren. After the devastating violence of World War II, these two countries' cooperation finally resulted in a solid alliance. This book invites its readers to focus on the cross-cultural exchanges that make the Belgian-Japanese relationship a fertile space for diplomacy, trade, and creativity.
