Publisher’s Note This year heralds the publication of a number of important, extensively illustrated books on major artists, the decorative arts and social history. A re-assessment of Bloomsbury artist Vanessa Bell, which accompanies an exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery, reveals her to be one of the most forward-looking artists of her time, boldly interpreting new ideas about art from Europe across a broad range of media. In a comprehensive study of William Morris’s early years at Red House, Bexleyheath, the only house Morris commissioned, new research by the National Trust shows that many of his original interior schemes still exist and that this littleknown early work constitutes an important new chapter in the history of Morris’s design. Accompanying an exhibition at Holburne Museum, Bath, the sixteenthcentury Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder and his prodigy are examined in a publication which identifies the work of each family member and shows the diversity of subject matter of this legendary dynasty of artists. There are important new titles on the decorative arts: The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale Junior is the first to fully document and illustrate the work of the son of Thomas Chippendale Senior which has never, until now, been thoroughly researched and gives the younger Chippendale the audience he deserves. In the third volume in our major

series with the National Trust, a substantial survey of Chinese wallpapers charts their stylistic development and shows why these exotic and beautiful papers have been enduringly popular in Western interiors from the eighteenth-century to the present day. And as a sequel to our volume on the Guy Ladrière collection of gems and rings published with the University of Oxford, we have a comprehensive study of one of the major gem collections of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, assembled by the First Earl of Beverley and his family. Our collaboration with the Fitzwilliam Museum continues, this time with a book to accompany the museum’s exhibition Madonnas and Miracles which identifies the importance of religion in the Italian Renaissance home. And with Museum of London we publish a detailed social history to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London. We continue to be at the forefront of publishing high quality art and illustrated books, working with a large number of museums, galleries and private individuals across a wide range of fine and applied arts.

Vanessa Bell

Vanessa Bell Edited by Sarah Milroy and Ian A.C. Dejardin

VANESSA BELL Vanessa Bell (1879–1961) has been known primarily as the sister of Virginia Woolf, and as the still, quiet centre around which the Bloomsbury Group revolved, renowned for her beauty, her complex romantic entanglements and, later, her domestic gravitas. But Bell was also one of the most advanced artists of her time, with her own distinctive vision, boldly interpreting new ideas about art then brewing in France and beyond. This publication beautifully showcases Bell’s pioneering oil paintings, photographs, ceramics, fabrics, decorative screens and works on paper in a stunning affirmation of her vibrant and wide-ranging talent. Including more than 180 colour plates, the publication is the definitive record of Bell’s accomplishments, enhanced with photographs of Charleston, the Sussex farmhouse that Bell occupied with creative flair alongside Duncan Grant and the rest of her unconventional family. With sections devoted to portraiture, landscape, still life, design, domestic scenes and female subjects, the publication gathers together a rich chorus of voices, from renowned Bloomsbury scholars to emerging experts, delivering a fresh view of an intrepid modern artist seen clearly on her own terms at last.

Defining a Dynasty Amy Orrock

Amy Orrock

This richly illustrated and original publication explores the diversity and innovation of a legendary dynasty of Flemish painters over four generations and 150 years. From the peasant festivals and proverb pictures of Pieter Bruegel the Elder and his son Pieter Brueghel the Younger to the exquisite flower paintings and paradise landscapes of Jan ‘Velvet’ Brueghel and the captivating cabinet pictures of Jan van Kessel, the Bruegel family played a fundamental role in many of the key artistic developments of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Investigating themes common throughout the generations, such as an enduring interest in the natural world and the role of close observation from life, the book’s new research findings also unravel practical mysteries, exploring how Bruegel’s sons were able to emulate their father’s model despite having no access to his paintings. Nearly five hundred years have passed since the birth of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, but the energy, influence and inventiveness of his unique family remains unrivalled in the history of art. This illuminating book redefines our appreciation of its artistic legacy and is an essential read for scholars and non-specialists alike.

Chinese Wallpaper

in Britain and Ireland Emile de Bruijn

Chinese wallpaper has been an important element of European interior decoration for three hundred years. As trade between Europe and China flourished in the seventeenth century, Europeans developed a strong taste for Chinese art and design. The stunningly beautiful wallcoverings now known as ‘Chinese wallpaper’ were developed by Chinese painting workshops in response to western demand. A sophisticated synthesis of eastern and western art, these wallpapers were an early-modern global product and they are still popular and influential today. In spite of their spectacular beauty, Chinese wallpapers have not been studied in any depth until fairly recently. This book provides an overview of some of the most significant Chinese wallpapers surviving in the British Isles. Sumptuously illustrated, it shows how these wallpapers became a staple ingredient of high-end British and Irish interiors while always retaining a touch of the exotic. The book charts their stylistic development, allowing individual papers to be more securely dated. It also touches on the China trade, the crucial role of the paper-hangers and the social significance of Chinese-style decoration in Britain. Chinese Wallpaper in Britain and Ireland will be a ground-breaking resource for both scholars and designers, as well as for anyone interested in historic interior decoration.

William Morris Rediscovered

William Morris Rediscovered Early Years at Red House


Tessa Wild

Early Years at Red House

Tessa Wild William Morris Rediscovered: Early Years at Red House is a comprehensive new study of Red House, Bexleyheath; the only house commissioned by William Morris and the first independent architectural work of his close friend, Philip Webb. Morris moved in to Red House as an ebullient young man of 26, with an independent income and a head brimming with ideas and the persistent question of ‘how best to live?’ Red House, together with its Pre-Raphaelite garden, stands as the physical embodiment of his exuberant spirit, youthful ambition, passionate medievalism, creativity and great sense of possibility. For five intense years from 1860–5, it was a place of halcyon days – happy family life, loyal friendship, good humoured competition, and the jovial campaign of decorating; furnishing the house and designing the garden to meet his emergent taste for strong colour, complex pattern making and medieval inspired furniture and gardens. Recent research has revealed that the original decorative finishes have survived to a surprising degree, providing tantalising glimpses and in several instances complete schemes, of Morris’s rich, polychromatic interiors of 1860–5. Drawing on a wealth of new physical evidence, this book will argue that Red House constitutes an ambitious and critical chapter in his design history which reveals Morris’s early confidence and artistic breadth through his little-known, experimental aesthetic. It will re-consider the inspiration it provided for the founding of ‘the Firm’ of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. (later Morris & Co.), in 1861, and the vital collaboration of Webb, Burne-Jones, Rossetti and their intimate circle in realising Morris’s dream for his house.

The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale Junior


The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale Junior Judith Goodison

Judith Goodison

The Chippendale cabinet-making firm, founded by Thomas Chippendale senior in about 1750 became famous partly through the successful publication of his The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director (1754, republished 1755 and 1762), and partly through the fine furniture supplied to a number of illustrious clients. Chippendale senior ran the workshop for just over twenty years. His eldest son Thomas Chippendale junior continued the business for over forty, the first two decades in partnership with Thomas Haig. Chippendale senior’s work has been well documented by Christopher Gilbert in his book The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale (1978). Chippendale junior’s work has never, until now, been thoroughly researched. The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale Junior repairs this omission and gives the younger Chippendale the audience he deserves. Judith Goodison’s research in family archives, bank records and county record offices has unearthed valuable new information. Chippendale impresses as a skilled and innovative designer, and the author suggests some possible sources for his inspiration. His patrons included members of the Royal Family, aristocrats, landed gentry and antiquarians. He was adept at satisfying their demands, whether they required lavish gilt or simpler, often mahogany, pieces. Where family archives and original settings survive, as at Harewood House, Paxton House and Stourhead, they reveal the variety and quality of Chippendale’s output. Analysis of client’s invoices, even when the furniture can no longer be traced, for the first time provides a colourful view of what customers chose and what prices they paid.

Treasures from the Oxus


Treasures from the Oxus

The Art and Civilization of Central Asia Massimo Vidale


The great river civilization of the Oxus is one of the forgotten jewels of the ancient world. In history, this grand arterial 1500-mile waterway was always seen as the natural frontier between the northern provinces of the Iranian empires and the outer Turanian lands. It was for centuries central to Achaemenid and later Persian power. But, as the author shows, it has a prehistory which goes very much further back: and a succession of skilled yet still elusive Bronze Age cultures flourished here well before the rise of Cyrus the Great in the 6th century BCE. This richly illustrated book explores the fascinating history, art and archaeology of the region, including its primal trade in silk and foodstuffs; the mineral wealth of the Oxus basin; its exotic myths and beliefs; and the converging tribes and peoples which led to a new stability, economic growth and urbanism. The volume contains 150 full-colour photographs of notable artefacts, including silver decorated vessels, inlaid stone pots, agate beads and 25 ‘Bactrian Princesses’: remarkable statuettes made in chlorite and limestone. Most of these rare objects have never been seen, let alone published, before.

‘Dr Vidale consistently incorporates a careful balance between clever ideas and insights, on the one hand, and first rate archaeological investigation on the other. In many ways his background and approach make him the ideal person to write this interesting and innovative volume on the Oxus civilization, which I recommend with enthusiasm.’ Cameron Petrie, Senior Lecturer in South Asian and Iranian Archaeology, University of Cambridge

Madonnas and Miracles

MADONNAS AND MIRACLES The Holy Home in Renaissance Italy

Madonnas and Miracles The Holy Home in Renaissance Italy

Edited by Maya Corry, Deborah Howard and Mary Laven

Edited by Maya Corry, Deborah Howard and Mary Laven

Madonnas and Miracles exposes a hidden world of religious devotion in the Italian Renaissance home. Challenging the idea of the Renaissance as an age of increasing worldliness, it shows how religion remained a powerful force that coloured every aspect of daily life. Across the length and breadth of Italy, houses were filled with decorative objects and works of art with spiritual significance, designed to aid members of the family in their devotional lives. A wide range of religious activities, from routine prayers to extraordinary experiences such as miracles and exorcisms, took place within the home, where they were adapted to key moments in the life-cycle, including birth, marriage, sickness and death. This lavishly illustrated publication explores a variety of devotional objects and images, from luxury items to everyday household goods. Bringing together jewellery and ceramics, manuscripts and printed books, sculpture and paintings, the book offers a vivid encounter with Renaissance spirituality and domesticity. The result is a new vision of a period in which the material world was charged with sacred power. Published in association with the Fitzwilliam Museum

Central Asia in Art

Central Asia in Art

From Soviet Orientalism to the New Republics Aliya Abykayeva-Tiesenhausen

In the midst of the space race and nuclear age, Soviet Realist artists were producing oil figurative paintings. Why? How was art produced to control and co-opt the peripheries of the Soviet Union, particularly Central Asia? Here these questions are explored to evaluate and interrogate the formation of national identity in a Soviet and postSoviet world. Presenting the ‘untold story’ of Soviet Orientalism, Aliya Abykayeva-Tiesenhausen re-evaluates the imperial project of the Soviet state, placing the Orientalist undercurrent found within art and propaganda production in the USSR alongside the creation of new art forms in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. The book re-interprets art production in Central Asia within the context of the Soviet propaganda mission during a time of social and cultural transformations, and uncovers how Soviet and Stalinist depictions of Central Asia are still in use in modern representations of the region. Taking an inter-disciplinary approach which spans Socialist Realist art, Central Asian studies and Orientalism in the Soviet context, the book sheds new light on the discourse surrounding the changing nature of the relationship between Russia, Central Asia and the West. From the turmoil of the 1930s through to the post-Stalinist era, the author draws on meticulous new research and rich illustrations to examine the political and social structures in the Soviet Union – and particularly Soviet Central Asia – to establish vital connections between Socialist Realist visual art, the creation of Soviet identity and later nationalist sentiments.

Silver for Entertaining

Silver for Entertaining

The Ickworth Collection James Rothwell

One of the most important collections of eighteenth-century silver in Europe is to be found at Ickworth House in Suffolk. It extends to nearly a thousand pieces, is of the highest quality, style and exuberance of form and survives virtually intact along with extensive and previously untapped archival evidence of its commissioning and use, and of the diplomatic, political and court appointments of its principal patron, George William Hervey, 2nd Earl of Bristol (1721–75). The finest London makers of the time are represented including Paul de Lamerie, Paul Crespin and, in particular, Frederick Kandler, and it also contains a significant quantity of continental pieces, commissioned contemporaneously whilst Lord Bristol was in Turin. It was in part by maintaining a sufficient state of ‘magnificence’ there, and in Madrid, that the Earl could hold the diplomatic ground for Britain during the Seven Years War and his silver, of the latest French fashions and of opulent extent, was a critical tool in his armoury. This book, which will be lavishly illustrated, will analyse the individual objects from stylistic and technical perspectives, and use them to shed light on the patronage, fashion and social history of a vibrant and turbulent era of European history.

400 Years of British Collecting in 100 Masterpieces Patricia F. Ferguson

With more than 80,000 items displayed in some 250 historic houses throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the National Trust possesses one of the greatest and most diverse collections of ceramics in the world. Ranging in time from Ancient Greece to the Arts and Crafts movement, its highlights encompass rare treasures from imperial China and Mughal India, spectacular Italian renaissance maiolica, French royal porcelain of luxurious beauty, and the ground-breaking experiments of Meissen and Wedgwood. Acquired over four hundred years, each of these remarkable objects has a story to tell: of exploration and international commerce, technical innovation and high fashion, extravagant collectors and family pride. Patricia Ferguson has selected one hundred masterpieces that provide a comprehensive overview of this great resource. Instead of being arranged conventionally by material, place of origin or date, they are ordered by the time these objects began to appear in British households. Beginning with the Elizabethan and Jacobean passion for Chinese porcelain, the story advances through the cult of delftware in the seventeenth century, the fashion for Dresden china and the growth of ‘vase mania’ in the eighteenth century to the explosion of interest in historic ceramics in the Victorian age. The author draws on a wealth of new evidence – letters, inventories, watercolours, paintings and historic photographs – to explain how these ceramics were used and displayed over four centuries. The result is a history that encompasses furniture and interior decoration, silver and sculpture, botany and horticulture, changing fashions in food and dining – in short, every aspect of family and social life in which ceramics played a central role.

Tapestries in the Burrell Collection




Tapestries in the Burrell Collection

Elizabeth Cleland and Lorraine Karafel with contributions by Elizabeth Hancock, Sarah Foskett, Helen M. Hughes, Alison N. Hulme and Lore Troalen Elizabeth Cleland and Lorraine Karafel

The magnificent collection of some 200 European, mainly medieval, tapestries acquired by Glasgow shipping magnate Sir William Burrell (1861–1958) is one of the largest and most important tapestry collections in the world. Although attempts to catalogue them have been made in the past, most have never been published and are therefore little known. The result of a three-year research project, this highly illustrated scholarly catalogue provides full details of place and date of production, materials and technique, provenance and exhibition history. Each entry also contains a detailed description of subject matter and interpretation of the iconography, including, where relevant, discussion of linked individual tapestries or series of associated tapestries in other locations. Any past or new theories about iconography and design are cited, with references. A discussion of context, such as noteworthy details about the patron or the production and information about related tapestries reusing the same cartoon in other locations, is included together with past and new research about makers and usage. Each tapestry entry is illustrated with a full colour image plus details and comparative illustrations where appropriate. The catalogue is prefaced by an essay on Burrell as a collector of tapestries and another on the history of the maintenance and care of tapestries. Appendices provide details of the dealers from whom Burrell bought the tapestries and on other noted collectors. An illustrated conservation essay, a glossary, a full bibliography and an index complete the volume. The resulting work provides a record of a major collection which will become a benchmark for future research and interpretation of tapestries of the period.

The Beverley Collection of Gems

The Beverley Collection of Gems at Alnwick Castle

Diana Scarisbrick, Claudia Wagner and John Boardman The Philip Wilson Gems and Jewellery Series, 2 Published in association with The Beazley Archive, Classical Art Research Centre, University of Oxford

The Beverley gems are one of the major British gem collections of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. They comprise some three hundred Greek, Roman, Mediaeval, Renaissance and Neo-classical pieces, many of them acquired from major European collections. This significant compendium contains a series of cameos which belonged to Cardinal Grimani (1461–1523), who showed them to several artists including Michelangelo Buonarotti. Michelangelo copied one of these for the pose of his famous painting of Adam on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Several of the pieces are signed by famous ancient and neo-classical artists. The early history of the collecting undertaken by, respectively, Lady Alexandra Percy, the First Duke of Northumberland and the First Earl of Beverley (Lord Algernon Percy, 1749–1840), as well as the latter’s journeys in Europe, are discussed in detail. Each item is illustrated, enlarged – in original and impression or cast – and includes many nineteenth-century electrotypes: a novel technique no longer practised for such works. Altogether, the collection presents a full conspectus of the arts of ‘classical’ gem engraving from antiquity to Neo-classicism in prime specimens.

Winifred Nicholson

Liberation of Colour Jovan Nicholson

This new publication explores the whole career of Winifred Nicholson with a special emphasis on her theories of colour. Using specific paintings to examine her ideas and writings about colour the book includes her late ‘prismatic’ pictures which have never been properly explained. Throughout her life Winifred Nicholson was interested in prisms and rainbows, but when she was given some prisms by a physicist friend in the mid 1970s her painting took on a new direction. Looking through a prism she saw objects with a rim of prismatic colour, and explored and developed these ideas, often painting pictures that verged on the abstract. Nicholson’s ‘prismatic’ pictures were a culmination of her life’s search to find ‘form’s secret and rhythmic law’. She painted them in Greece in 1979, at her home in Cumbria, and during her last painting trip to the Island of Eigg in the Hebrides in 1980, where she had an inspired period of painting and made some of her best loved pictures. Published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Liberation of Colour’ at mima, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern art, the book illustrates many previously unseen paintings from private collections, as well as some of Nicholson’s best known works, and draws on new research, including previously unseen archival material.

Butcher, Baker, Candlestick maker Surviving the Great Fire of London Hazel Forsyth

The Great Fire which raged from 2 to 5 September 1666 caused more damage to the City of London than the Blitz in the Second World War. Buildings were destroyed and a new City rose from the ashes. But what impact did the fire have on individual lives and businesses? How did Londoners survive the fire? What did they have in their homes and shops? What did they lose or stand to lose as the flames swept towards them? These questions lie at the heart of this book; the first study of the material culture of the fire and its impact on the crafts and trades of the City. It is an enthralling and surprising story of tragedy and despair, courage and resilience. It is also a story about ordinary, sometimes extraordinary, men and women who struggled to re-build their lives and the civic institutions which came to their aid. The evidence is entirely drawn from primary sources, much of it published here for the first time. Beautifully illustrated with all kinds of goods from exquisite fabrics to the humble pot, we are treated to a visual feast; an evocative reminder of life in one of the most dynamic periods of English history. Published in association with the Museum of London

Surrealism in Egypt

Surrealism in Egypt

Modernism and the Art and Liberty Group Sam Bardaouil

Art and Liberty, the Surrealist group based in Cairo that pioneered new forms of creative expression and broke with local tradition, was born with the publication of its manifesto Long Live Degenerate Art on 22 December 1938. Rejecting the convergence of art and nationalism, and the academic style endorsed by the Egyptian state and bourgeois moral conventions, its members aligned themselves with a complex, international and evolving Surrealist movement spanning cities such as Paris, London, Mexico City, New York, Beirut and Tokyo. The group created a distinct reworking of Surrealism, which provided a generation of disillusioned Egyptian and non-Egyptian artists and writers, men and women alike, with a platform for cultural reform and anti-Fascist protest. Surrealism in Egypt is the first comprehensive analysis of Art and Liberty’s artworks, literature and critical writings on Surrealism. By addressing the group’s long-lost and often misconstrued legacy, and drawing on a substantial body of previously unpublished primary documents, the author charts Art and Liberty’s significant contribution towards a new definition of Surrealism. Moving beyond the polarizing dichotomies of Saïdian Orientalism, this book rewrites the history of Surrealism itself – advocating for a new definition of the movement that reflects an inclusive vision of art history. .

3D Warhol

3D Warhol

Andy Warhol and Sculpture Thomas Morgan Evans

Rain machines; alarmed kosher pickle jars filled with gemstones; replica corn flakes boxes; ‘disco décor’; time capsules; art bombs; birthday presents; perfume bottles and floating silver pillows that are clouds; paintings that are also films; museum interventions; collected and curated projects; expanded performance environments; holograms. This is a book about the vast, varied array of sculptural work made by Andy Warhol between 1954 and 1987 – a period that begins long before the first Pop paintings and ends in the year of his death. In 3D Warhol, Thomas Morgan Evans argues that Warhol’s engagement with sculpture, and traditional notions of sculpture, produced ‘trespasses’; his sculptural work bisected the expectations, allegiances and values within art historical, and ultimately social, sites of investiture (or territories). This groundbreaking, original book brings to the forefront a major, but overlooked aspect of Warhol’s oeuvre, providing an essential new perspective on the artist’s legacy.

‘3D Warhol is a fascinating exploration of a facet of Warhol’s work that is often ignored …. This book is indispensable for anyone interested in the work of Andy Warhol … highly recommended.’ Gary Comenas, founder of

‘3D Warhol fills a crucial gap in Warhol scholarship … with aplomb, delving confidently into a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar objects, illuminating ways in which they exploit and undermine traditional sculptural aesthetics.’ Anthony Grudin, Associate Professor of Art History, University of Vermont

Abstraction and Reality:

The Sculpture of Ivor Roberts-Jones

Ivor Roberts-Jones (1913–1996) was one of the finest sculptors working in Britain during the twentieth century. This book is the first in-depth study of this compelling artist who was responsible for the magisterial statue of Sir Winston Churchill, unveiled in November 1973, which stands in Parliament Square in London. It incorporates a wealth of new research and never before published imagery of the artist’s fascinating and wide-ranging output, including his numerous major public works such as a haunting figure of controversial painter Augustus John in Fordingbridge, Hampshire (1967), doomed World War I poet Rupert Brooke (Rugby, 1988) and memorials to two British military titans of the Second World War situated in Whitehall: Field Marshal Sir William ‘Bill’ Slim (unveiled in 1990) – architect of victory in the gruelling Burma campaign – and Field Marshal Sir Alan Brooke (unveiled in 1993), the master strategist who prevented many of Churchill’s more unrealistic schemes from being implemented.

Edvard Munch

Munch’s striking and emotive graphic works have fascinated people all over the world for more than a century. He arranged a number of exhibitions of his prints in his lifetime, and was represented in many print rooms and important private collections in Europe before World War II. Since then his fame and influence on subsequent image-making have grown and grown. When he died in 1944 Munch bequeathed his own vast collection of some 17,000 print impressions, from a total output that amounted to between 20,000 and 25,000, to the City of Oslo. In 1963, the Munch Museum opened its doors to the public, and since then Munch’s prints have been shown in numerous exhibitions worldwide.

The Face of Courage Eric Kennington, Portraiture and The Second World War

About the Author

The Face of Courage

Eric Kennington (1888–1960) was one of the most talented British portraitists of the twentieth century. His penetrating charcoal and pastel portraits were greatly admired by many of his leading artistic contemporaries including Wyndham Lewis, Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash, Edward Wadsworth, Henry Moore, Augustus John, William Orpen and John Singer Sargent. His draughtsmanship was also held in high regard by famous contemporaries in many fields and he could count as friends such as: T.E. Lawrence; Robert Graves; Siegfried Sassoon; George Bernard Shaw; J.B. Priestley; Kenneth Clark; John Rothenstein; Basil Liddell Hart; Julian Huxley and H.E. Bates.

Eric Kennington, Portraiture and the Second World War Jonathan Black

The Face of Courage Eric Kennington, Portraiture and The Second World War

Jonathan Black

This is the first book to focus on some of the nearly 230 works he produced during the Second World War, firstly as an official war artist working for Kenneth Clark’s War Artist Advisory Committee at the Ministry of Information and then in a semi-official capacity for the Ministry of Labour, the War Office and London Transport. The majority of his drawings were portraits but also included are examples of his attractive landscapes as well as haunting symbolic works – inspired by powerful feelings evoked in wartime and the individuals in uniform he met as a war artist. The book draws upon a rich vein of unpublished archival material and documentation while including imagery that has not been reproduced in over half a century as well as works which have never hitherto appeared in colour. Different chapters discuss the fascinating portraits he produced; of sailors who had survived the Battles of the River Plate and of Narvik, of fighter pilots who flew day and night during the Battle of Britain and the Blitz, of tank crews, munitions workers, men of the Home Guard who had already experienced the hell of the trenches and of employees of London Transport who had displayed ‘grace under pressure’ during the worst of the bombing in 1940–41. The portraits are accompanied by an array of enthralling stories of supposedly ordinary men and women who displayed the most extraordinary physical, mental and moral courage when confronted by the test of Total War. Kennington’s frequently hazardous experiences as a war artist are explored along with his often fractious relations with his employers at the Ministry of Information who were uneasy with his determination to celebrate individual servicemen who had killed for their country rather than promote non-combatants and civilian sitters more compatible with an official narrative that emphasised the ‘People’s War’ and the value of collective endeavour.

Eric Kennington (1888–1960) was one of the most talented British portraitists of the twentieth century.

Emerging from the Shadows

Emerging from the Shadows

Francis ‘Frank’ Montague Holl (1845–1888) was one of the great painters of the Victorian era, notable for his tragic social realism as well as his penetrating portraits. Although highly respected in his lifetime, his early death meant that he never fully received the acclaim that his work merited. This book represents the first retrospective of this significant artist. Exploring in parallel the subject paintings and the portraits, it considers the importance of Holl’s output and his continued relevance today. Leading scholars in the field look at different aspects of Holl’s painting, while full catalogue entries examine certain works in detail.

Edited by Mark Bills

Francis ‘Frank’ Montague Holl (1845–1888) was one of the great painters of the Victorian era, notable for his tragic social realism as well as his penetrating portraits. This book represents the first retrospective of this significant artist whose influence was felt in his lifetime and later through the work of Van Gogh who greatly admired Holl.

Holl was a prodigiously talented artist who entered the Royal Academy Schools at the age of fifteen, where he won a gold medal for religious painting in 1863. A year later two of his paintings were accepted for exhibition at the Royal Academy, where he showed work regularly until his death. He was commissioned by Queen Victoria to paint No Tidings from the Sea (1871; Royal Collection). Holl became part of an informal school of socialrealist painting that flourished during the 1870s; its aim was to draw attention to the everyday conditions of the working classes and the poor, and implicitly to criticize the social structures that maintained such conditions. His great subject pictures, often on bleak themes, were frequently criticized for their darkness but found great favour with the public, who empathized with his depictions. Funeral processions, child mortality and grief were very much part of life and his emotive images struck a chord with his audience.

Frank Holl

Emerging from the Shadows

In 1879, when Holl exhibited a portrait of the engraver Samuel Cousins at the Royal Academy it created a sensation. In the nine years of life that remained he painted over 150 portraits, some of the greatest of his age – achievements which can be seen on a par with those of Watts and Millais. His influence was felt in his lifetime and later through the work of Van Gogh who greatly admired Holl.

Volume III Sketchbooks and Prints

Franz Marc (1880–1916) was one of the most important members of the Blue Rider group, together with other outstanding artists such as Vassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, August Macke, Paul Klee and Alfred Kubin. The group marked the high point in German Expressionism and had a profound influence on international art during the brief period from its formation to the beginning of the First World War.

The third and final volume of the catalogue raisonné contains thirty-two sketchbooks and hundreds of drawings. Over one thousand sketchbook pages are catalogued and reproduced for the first time, with details of provenance and present location.

The Complete Works

This third and final volume of the full-colour catalogue raisonné of Franz Marc covers all the artist’s sketchbooks and prints. The thirty-three sketchbooks have been reconstructed and the leaves presented in their original sequence, including more than 750 new entries taken from the individual folios. The new catalogue on Marc’s prints provides an exhaustive documentation of the various editions of the well-known woodcuts in particular. As in the first two volumes, the chronology of works has been fundamentally revised and brought up to date in line with the most recent research. Together with those two other volumes, the paintings (vol. I), and the watercolours, gouaches, drawings and postcards (vol. II), this book now makes Franz Marc’s complete œuvre accessible to the general public in a form that has never been available before. In doing so it represents the standard work for lovers of art, scholars and collectors alike, giving many fresh insights into this remarkable figure.

A Late 1960s Home for Art and Design

The Picker House is a remarkable late 1960s modernist home specifically designed to accommodate a superb collection of modern and contemporary painting and sculpture. Situated on the outskirts of London, in Kingston upon Thames, it is a rare surviving example of a spacious and progressive late modern house and garden that remains largely unaltered. Designed by the British modernist architect Kenneth Wood in 1965, it still retains its period interior décor, contemporary furnishings acquired through Terence Conran’s two design firms, Conran Design Group and Conran Contracts, and the distinctive art collection of its owner – including works by Chagall, Frink, Hepworth, Lowry, Rodin and many more – which was an integral part of its conception. Based on previously unpublished material and photographs, this heavily illustrated publication brings together leading researchers in their respective fields who chart the history of the house and its collections.

The Persistence of the Classical


Essays on Architecture NPresented to David Watkin DAV I D WAT K I N


o tradition in architecture has been more constant or more continually open to creative reinterpretation than the classicism that originated in the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. This beautifully designed book explores these ideas through essays on architecture, architectural thought and landscape design from the Renaissance to the present day by fifteen distinguished writers. They have been brought together to mark the retirement from the University of Cambridge of one of the world’s most renowned architectural historians and greatest authorities on classicism, Professor David Watkin. Amongst the figures about whom new research is presented are well-known architects Marie-Joseph Peyre, Thomas Hope, William Wilkins, C.R. Cockerell, Charles Barry and Albert Richardson, while less familiar twentieth-century architects introduced here include E.L. Warre, Donald McMorran and George Whitby. There are essays on the architectural writers John Summerson and Hope Bagenal, while others take themes, spanning from interpretations of Vitruvius, through Roman Catholic chapel building in London and the role played by the Museum of Modern Art in New York in stimulating Post-Modernism in the 1970s, to the persistence of Picturesque ideas in contemporary landscape design. In addition, there is a valuable bibliography of David Watkin’s own very extensive publications.

Robert Upstone, Roy Foster, and David Fraser Jenkins

One of the most successful British artists of the early nineteenth century, Etty’s work has recently been neglected. The only major study of Etty’s work in over fifty years reassesses his use of the nude, his training at the Royal Academy and his large scale historical canvases and proposes a new framework within which his art can be understood.

This monograph reappraises an artist who, at the time of his death in 1931 was probably the best-known painter in Britain. The book reveals the full variety of his work, from his revitalization of the nude to his extraordinary allegories and war paintings, and analyses the self-portraits that are a particular feature of his work.

Vincent van Gogh’s tumultuous final years were the climax of his career as a colourist. In France he reached a sustained height of expression and created a prodigious quantity of work, the importance of which is incontestable. In the landscapes, portraits and still lifes from this period the intensity and singularity of vision finds its apotheosis.
