A compelling exploration of two of America’s most celebrated artists’ approaches to portraiture

A

rtists Richard Avedon (1923–2004) and Andy Warhol (1928–1987) came to prominence in a time of profound change around the world. Amid that political and social upheaval, both men

became renowned for their work, elucidating themes of portraiture, celebrity, gender, politics, and reli-

gion. Avedon brought the personality of the sitter to the forefront, revealing his subjects’ inner selves. Warhol created portraits and images that were emotionally opaque, glamorous, and impersonal. Avedon and Warhol knew each other, and each had an abiding belief in the power of the image to seduce, amuse, and shock. They created original visions of the world around them, becoming two of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

was irresistibly warm and engaging. Although known for his black-and-white work, Lartigue loved color film, experimenting with the Autochrome process in the teens and twenties and embracing Ektachrome in the late 1940s. His color work, reproduced here for the first time, is astonishingly fresh: the French countryside, the women in his life, famous friends (Picasso, Fellini), and glimpses from his travels all come alive in this delightful book. Martine d’Astier is the director of the Jacques Henri Lartigue Foundation and a former assistant of Lartigue’s. Martine Ravache is an art historian and photography critic.

Spoelman is a full-time distiller and writer; Haskell is deputy editor at New York magazine.

in his time and continues to enchant today. This definitive volume on Voysey’s design life focuses on the English architect as a designer of furniture, metalwork, and textiles, providing a new analysis of his characteristic motifs. It offers a complete and fully illustrated account of both his output and his vision for domestic life at the turn of the 20th century.

everything from Degas’s drawings and Warhol’s first computer portrait to Jeff Koons’s album cover for Lady Gaga. As famous as he is today, Botticelli was quickly forgotten after his death, only to be rediscovered in the 19th century. Much of what we know of his art has been pieced together, as only three of his works are signed or documented. Botticelli’s continuing impact raises a number

E XHIB ITION SCHE DULE Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Mar 5–Jul 3, 2016

of questions: How does a painter acquire international fame? What made Botticelli a pop icon? This fascinating book, published to accompany a major exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, is the first to contrast Botticelli’s work with modern appropriations of it—including paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, videos, fashion, and design by artists such as Edgar Degas, Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, René Magritte, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, and Bill Viola. Mark Evans is the senior curator of paintings at the Victoria and Albert Museum. He has written extensively on painting and is the author of numerous books on art, including John Constable: The Making of a Master. Stefan Weppelmann is director of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.

aspect of apparel—and would shape fashion for years to come. When the Ballets Russes took Paris by storm in 1909, their costumes lit a fire under the fashion world. Their exotic designs, vibrant patterns, and rich, luxurious materials inspired ingenious designers like Paul Poiret, Natalia Goncharova, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and Madeleine Vionnet to create garments that were bold, inventive, and quintessentially modern. With shorter hemlines and more daring cuts, these creations reflected the spirit of liberation and increased

Frederick the Great, King of Prussia (r. 1740–86), had a particular preference for the green stone chrysoprase, and allegedly even asked to be shown boxes in this material on his deathbed. The light beauty of the box is in stark contrast to the story told by the stone: chrysoprase was found in Silesia, which became part of Prussia as a result of Frederick’s military campaigns, commemorated in the maps of the silver box medal.

enowned for her elegantly sleek sculptures in stone, wood, and bronze, Barbara Hepworth (1903–1975) is among

Britain’s most important modern artists. This groundbreaking new publication focuses on the spaces and contexts, physical

and conceptual, in which the artist is positioned. It examines her interest in staging and presenting work—indoors and out—in studio, film, garden, stage, architecture, photography, and print. As well as placing her work alongside her British and international contemporaries, a broad range of distinguished contributors also consider wider technical and intellectual concerns. Richly illustrated with more than 200 color images drawn from her entire career, the catalog represents some of Hepworth’s best-known works in addition to introducing some of her less familiar pieces. The book features previously unseen documentary material, including photographs and film stills that cast new light on one of the 20th century’s greatest artists. Penelope Curtis was director at Tate Britain from 2010 to 2015. Chris Stephens is head of displays and lead curator, modern British art, at Tate Britain.

n the last decade, interest in photography has exploded. Among the most compelling and popular

art forms, photography is now recognized as central to the development of modern and contemporary art. In

9 781849 762243

this accessibly written survey, art photography comes alive through a series of frames—from documentary style and pictorialism to archives, narratives, and the conceptual uses of the medium. David Bate traces major developments and themes from the earliest days of photography, in the 1830s, to the present day, examining the many ways in which photography and art have intersected since the birth of the medium. Featuring works from a wide and international group of artists—including Henry Fox Talbot, Roger Fenton, Lee Miller, Brassaï, Robert Frank, Nan Goldin, Ed Ruscha, and Gillian Wearing—this comprehensive volume uncovers the Anglo-American and European contexts of art photography, as well as the Asian, African, and Middle Eastern perspectives. David Bate is a professor of photography at the University of Westminster in London and a practicing photo artist. He is author of Photography: The Key Concepts and Photography and Surrealism.

under British governance, from the Americas to India and Australasia. Writers, artists, and museums have long played a role in documenting the cultural impact of British colonialism, and yet, since the vast Imperial exhibitions of the early 20th century, there has been no comprehensive presentation of the objects made across the British Empire. This publication, which accompanies a major Tate Britain exhibition, fills that gap. In this landmark study, leading scholars focus on how particular objects tell the history of life under British rule. Paintings by artists such as John Singer Sargent and Sidney Nolan are presented alongside Benin bronze heads and Mughal miniatures in a survey that ranges from 16th-century colonialism to the British Empire’s decline in the postwar era. Alison Smith is lead curator, British art to 1900, at Tate. David Blayney Brown is curator, British art 1790–1850, at Tate. Carol Jacobi is curator, British art 1850–1915, at Tate.

painters to vivid life. This extraordinary, inventive

graphic novel uses text drawn exclusively from the quotes of Edvard Munch and his contemporaries. Filled with authenticity and life, Munch debunks the familiar myth of the half-mad expressionist painter—

anguished, starving, and ill-treated—and draws out his neglected sense of humor and optimism. Born out of a lifelong fascination with Munch’s life and work, Kverneland’s seven-year project is a landmark of graphic biography and the funniest, most entertaining portrait yet of a complex man and the pioneering artist behind The Scream. Steffen Kverneland is an award-winning comics artist. He is the author of biographies of Henrik Ibsen and Olaf Gulbransson, among many other books. He lives in Norway.
