This book presents work by a group of the world’s most esteemed young contemporary artists and designers in a medium they’ve previously not explored– retro 3D.

THE 3D ART BOOK TRISTAN EATON FOREWORD BY CARLO MCCORMICK Since he was a kid, artist, designer, and vinyl toy impresario Tristan Eaton has been obsessed with the nostalgic look of 3D imagery. In The 3D Art Book, he parlays this fascination into a carefully curated selection of over 100 works by established and up-and-coming contemporary artists, expertly rendered as 3D images which can be viewed with red and blue glasses (included in the book). Many of the pieces, by artists respected within the designer toy, street art, Pop Surrealist, graffiti, graphic design, and streetwear communities, were created specifically for this project. The included works range from otherworldly paintings by Eric White, Ron English, and James Jean, to graffiti pieces by Dr. Revolt, Claw Money, and HAZE, intricate designs by Tokidoki, 10Deep, and Mishka NYC, cartoonish characters by Jon Burgerman, Miss Van, and Gary Baseman, as well as pieces by heavyweights D*Face, Todd Schorr, and Shepard Fairey. Each image comes jumping to life when viewed with 3D glasses. Eaton’s introduction documents his personal history as an appreciator and creator of 3D art, while an essay by cultural critic Carlo McCormick focuses on stereoscopic 3D’s rise to pop prominence in 1950s America. TRISTAN EATON is Founder and Creative Director of Thunderdog Studios, a Brooklyn-based creative agency and vinyl toy brand. The designer of the nowiconic Dunny and Munny toy forms for Kidrobot, he is also a leading figure in the world of advertising and commercial art. His work can be seen at the Cooper Hewitt Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. CARLO MCCORMICK is a New York-based popular culture critic, curator, and senior editor at Paper magazine.

Nearly four decades of original, subversive, and beautiful Postcard Art is collected in this magnificently packaged two– volume set designed by Gilbert & George.

THE COMPLETE POSTCARD ART OF GILBERT & GEORGE MICHAEL BRACEWELL Gilbert & George have carved a permanent place in the modern art world. Their enormous oeuvre comprises everything from Living Sculptures, Film/Videos to their large scale Pictures, and confronts all aspects of the human condition with characteristic honesty and clarity. Their Postcard Art is a representation of the themes that have occupied their art for nearly four decades. This ingeniously packaged two-volume set illustrates in color all 1,004 new and vintage Postcard Pictures, most of which have not been previously catalogued or exhibited. Volume One covers the period from 1972–1989, in groups composed of varying arrangements and romantic and historic subjects and begun shortly after Gilbert & George achieved recognition in the art world. The second volume collects a new and as yet unseen group of 564 Postcard Pictures known as “The Urethra Postcard Pictures”—a uniformly formatted series soon to be the subject of a world exhibition tour. Each volume is introduced with a perceptive essay by Michael Bracewell, who explains the significance of this art form in the context of the artists’ work. Ordered around the Union Flag, landscapes, celebrity, royalty, prostitution, tourist destinations, and other concerns, this collection compiles a crucial but largely unseen component of the artists’ important contribution to contemporary art. MICHAEL BRACEWELL is a British novelist and cultural commentator who has written extensively about art, fashion, and music.

BOB DYLAN THE BRAZIL SERIES JOHN ELDERFIELD AND KASPER MONRAD

Following on the heels of Drawn Blank, which The New York Times hailed as “extraordinary” and “enthralling,” this volume of Dylan’s paintings includes works created since 2008. Inspired by his travels in Brazil, the paintings embody an array of motifs, from portraits to landscapes, highly narrative scenes to brilliant experiments with composition and color. The subjects of The Brazil Series include workers, boxers, entertainers, and socialites, together capturing many facets of Brazilian life. This volume includes perceptive essays that introduce readers to Dylan’s decades-long interest in drawing and painting; trace elements of that passion within his musical career; and offer a thoughtful analysis of these most recent works. Brilliant reproductions reveal the artist’s extraordinary use of color and line, while details of the paintings allow readers to further appreciate Dylan’s sophistication as an artist and his lifelong exploration of people and the worlds they inhabit. JOHN ELDERFIELD has served as chief curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and has written widely on art. KASPER MONRAD is Chief Curator at the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This definitive portrait of Camille Pissarro by one of the world’s foremost authorities on Impressionism and French painting reveals the deep connection between Pissarro’s humanitarian concerns and his creative output. Exhibition Itinerary: Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Massachusetts June 12–October 2, 2011 Legion of Honor, San Francisco, California October 22, 2011–February 26, 2012 Published in association with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute.

PISSARRO’S PEOPLE RICHARD R. BRETTELL

Throughout his career, the Impressionist artist Camille Pissarro produced a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, and prints inspired by his fascination with and commitment to politics. Many of these works reflect the tensions between his anarchist ideals and the realities of life in a capitalist society, however, most examinations of Pissarro have approached his art and politics as separate spheres. Published to accompany a major exhibition, this survey by a renowned expert on Impressionist painting offers a selection of canvases and works on paper that embody Pissarro’s pictorial humanism at the highest level. Exhaustive archival study, interviews with surviving family members, and research drawn from thousands of newly discovered letters inform this rich and authoritative book. Including individual portraits of each of the family members Pissarro so often inserted into his paintings, it also examines his relationships with fellow artists, writers, neighbors, merchants, and domestic servants. The result is a refreshing and landmark reconsideration of the artist’s magnificent body of work. RICHARD R. BRETTELL has taught at Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, Yale University, and Harvard University, and is presently Margaret M. McDermott Distinguished Chair of Art and Aesthetic Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas. He is the author of numerous books on painting and Impressionism.

The imagined city of Elgin Park, a magically realistic evocation of a midcentury American town, has captured the hearts of millions of web visitors and now appears in book form.

ELGIN PARK AN IDEAL AMERICAN TOWN MICHAEL PAUL SMITH ESSAY BY GAIL ELLISON You won’t find the town of Elgin Park on a map, but you will find it all over the web and in the media. Called an “Internet phenomenon” by The New York Times, Michael Paul Smith’s Flickr site has received over 20 million hits since he first posted his convincing yet dreamlike photographs of an imaginary town, inspired by the small Pennsylvania one he grew up in. Viewers of all ages from across the world will respond to the memories and feelings evoked by his perfectly executed miniature street scenes with model vintage cars, which are photographed outdoors against actual backgrounds. Without digital manipulation, Smith creates wondrously realistic scenes, which are beautifully reproduced in this exquisite volume. Gail Ellison, a longtime colleague of the artist, explains Smith’s ingenious methods and also uncovers the themes of his art. MICHAEL PAUL SMITH was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His model-making skills are the accumulation of numerous jobs he has had, including textbook illustrator, wallpaper hanger, housepainter, and architectural model maker. He lives in New England. GAIL K. ELLISON teaches at the University of Florida College of Medicine, works as Writer-in-Residence with the Shands Arts in Medicine program, and offers workshops for caregivers and students.

Photographer Iain McKell offers an extraordinary—and breathtakingly beautiful—glimpse into the lives of a real and raw group of present-day nomads whose culture is built around ideals of freedom, nature, and simplicity.

THE NEW GYPSIES IAIN MCKELL

Historically despised the new Gypsies are there by choice, not heritage. Unrelated to the Roma, the movement began in 1986 when a group of Post-Punk Anti-Thatcher protesters headed out of London into the English countryside. McKell followed these New Age Travelers to the West Country and over the years he watched them become a hybrid tribe—the new gypsies—present-day rural anarchists, living the subversive lifestyle in elaborately decorated horse–drawn caravans. Known as “Horse-drawn,” the new gypsies share a desire for sustainability, a love of self-reliance and a disdain for the trappings of contemporary life. For more than a decade McKell has focused his lens on travelers of all ages: parents, children, couples, and loners. With sensitivity and honesty he captures a way of life that seems at once romantic, strange, beautiful, and simple. The result is a deeply insightful portrayal of a culture that eschews the traditional creature comforts of urban life in favour of the simplicity and freedom of the natural world. IAIN MCKELL is an international photographer whose work has appeared in numerous major publications such as V, Sunday Times, i-D, and Italian Vogue.

This book’s vibrant photographs reveal the outrageous fashion of London’s pulsating club scene in the 21st century.

NEW CLUB KIDS LONDON PARTY FASHION IN THE NOUGHTIES OGGY YORDANOV

The Noughties saw the rise of a new generation of Club Kids following in the footsteps of their predecessors—the original Club Kids of New York City, who, in turn, had followed London’s Blitz generation. In the early 1980s, the Blitz Club in London’s Covent Garden became the focal point for an alternative club scene—frequented by Adam Ant, Boy George, Siouxsie Sioux and Steve Strange—which spawned even more radical clubs such as Leigh Bowery’s infamous Taboo club in London’s Leicester Square. Bowery famously enjoined, “Dress as though your life depends on it or don’t bother,” a mantra the new Club Kids have adopted as their own. They dress outrageously, with a penchant for kitsch and anti-fashion. Often with a mixture of their own self-made outfits and carefully selected labels (predominantly Vivienne Westwood), oversized accessories, excessive amounts of make-up and frequently highly androgynous looks, these flamboyant clubbers have created a vibrant New Club Kids’ scene in London’s bohemian nightlife underground. Fabulous or trashy, beautiful or scary, glamorous or freaky—meet the New Club Kids in these incredible photographs. OGGY YORDANOV is a Bulgarian-born photographer who has lived in London’s Soho district since 2001. As a party kid himself he was inspired by the exuberance and avant-garde fashion of the London club underground.

Looking at art through the lens of psychedelic experience and culture, New York Times critic Ken Johnson reveals an unexpected and illuminating dimension of art since the 1960s. Advance praise for Are You Experienced?: “Are you in search for head-over-heels creativity? Then follow New York Times art critic Ken Johnson on his delirious quest through the bloodstream to the neurotransmitters of the human brain, and from there to the edges of the cosmos and the depths of the human soul.” Walter Robinson, Editor-In-Chief, artnet Magazine

ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? HOW PSYCHEDELIC CONSCIOUSNESS TRANSFORMED MODERN ART KEN JOHNSON Art changed in a big way in the 1960s; it was no longer something just to look at and appreciate for its aesthetic qualities. The traditional ideal of connoisseurship was out; art as consciousnessaltering experience was in. Boundaries between conventional media such as paintings and sculpture stretched and dissolved. Hierarchical distinctions between high and low culture became irrelevant. Weird new forms proliferated. Would art have developed as it did in the past fifty years, would it be the way it is now, if psychedelics and psychedelic culture had not been so popular? To answer that question, Ken Johnson, the veteran art critic of The New York Times, has examined a broad array of art of the past half century, from Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty to Pipilotti Rist’s recent swooningly trippy video installation at the Museum of Modern Art and Richard Serra’s warped, spiraling mazes of inches-thick Corten steel, looking not just for obvious signs of psychedelic style but for an underlying psychedelic ethos animating the art. Extensively illustrated in color, Johnson’s pioneering study may change the way we see contemporary art. KEN JOHNSON is an art critic at The New York Times and contributing editor at Art in America.

An essential volume on the work of Robert Rauschenberg, this relevatory selection of rarely seen masterworks is curated in collaboration with the artist’s estate and includes an extensive chronology. Distributed for Gagosian Gallery.

ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG JAMES LAWRENCE AND JOHN RICHARDSON

In a career of nearly sixty years Rauschenberg changed the course of art history, art making, and viewers’ experience of art. An artist of protean creativity, he transformed the mediums of sculpture, painting, prints, and photography. He elevated seemingly casual, everyday images and embraced discarded and found materials, reintroducing content to art after decades when abstraction held sway. This book covers the full span of the artist’s career, from 1950 to 2007, focusing on key works from the collection of the artist’s estate, including many that have not been shown since they were first made and exhibited more than thirty years ago, as well as masterpieces that have recently been seen in museum exhibitions. Texts by James Lawrence and John Richardson are accompanied by more than sixty color illustrations and over fifty black-and-white historical photographs. Also featured is an extensive chronology by Susan Davidson detailing the artist’s life and career that will become a fundamental reference for students of Rauschenberg’s influential oeuvre. JAMES LAWRENCE is a critic and historian of postwar and contemporary art. Curator and art historian JOHN RICHARDSON is the renowned author of the multi-volume biography A Life of Picasso.

This intriguing new look at the work of David Smith reveals how art and personal history shaped the work of one of America’s foremost artists. Exhibition Itinerary: Los Angeles County Museum of Art April 3–July 24, 2011 Published in association with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

DAVID SMITH CUBES AND ANARCHY CAROL S. ELIEL, WITH ESSAYS BY CHRISTOPHER BEDFORD, ALEX POTTS, AND ANNE M. WAGNER

Heralded as one of the greatest American sculptors of the twentieth century, David Smith nonetheless identified himself as a member of the working class. A contemporary of Gorky, de Kooning, and Pollock in the New York art world, Smith worked as a welder before and during World War II and retained his union membership thereafter. How Smith meshed these two disparate worlds is the subject of this unique examination that focuses specifically on the geometric features of Smith’s work, including his renowned Cubi series. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the book considers geometry in Smith’s sculpture as both a formal and thematic construct. Essays by leading curators and scholars explore the relationship between Smith’s lifelong interest in the utopian optimism of the avant-garde and his own artistic identity. The book includes illustrations of more than fifty sculptures, along with drawings, paintings, and vintage photographs by the artist. CAROL S. ELIEL is Curator of Modern Art, LACMA. She was educated at Yale and the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. CHRISTOPHER BEDFORD is Chief Curator at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Ohio State University.

This authoritative history of one of modern art’s most important movements celebrates one hundred years since the inception of the Blue Rider artists’ group.

THE BLUE RIDER ECKHARD HOLLMANN

Although it only lasted three years—from 1911 to 1914—the collaborative force of German and Russian artists that made up “Der Blaue Reiter” had an amazing impact on the development of Expressionist art and, as a result, on modern art as a whole. This publication looks at the history of this group from the early artists’ salons to its dissolution as a result of World War I. Richly illustrated with reproductions of iconic and lesser-known works as well as photographs of the artists, the book looks at the events and places considered the most formative to the movement, taking readers on the trail of the Blue Rider as they weathered intense criticism while inspiring dozens in their wake. The book considers many unresolved questions about the symbolism inherent in the group’s paintings, and ends with an appreciation of the legacy these daring artists left behind. ECKHARD HOLLMANN is an art historian and the author of many books on art.

This fascinating new book explores how Egon Schiele reinvented the art of portraiture, brilliantly capturing the inner lives of his numerous subjects—including himself. Exhibition Itinerary: Belvedere Museum, Vienna, Austria February 17–June 13, 2011

EGON TITLE SCHIELE AND PORTRAITS SELF-PORTRAITS SUBTITLE AGNES HUSSLEIN-ARCO AND JANE KALLIR AUTHORS

This book traces Schiele’s development as a portraitist through four principal chronological phases, from 1906 through 1918. Starting with the artist’s rigorous training at the Vienna Academy, it chronicles Schiele’s eventual break with academia and the emergence of his Expressionistic style. As Schiele honed his technical abilities, he gathered a coterie of patrons— many of whom he immortalized on canvas—and developed a tendency toward realism and introspection. Throughout his career Schiele tested the boundaries of traditional portraiture. Confrontational, explicitly erotic, and largely devoid of props or scenery, Schiele’s portraits are seminal works of originality and deep empathy with the human condition. This volume also offers a close examination of Schiele’s self-portraits and his relationship with Gustav Klimt, Schiele’s gestic language in the context of contemporaneous photography and the silent film, as well as brief biographies of Schiele’s subjects and transcriptions of illuminating letters pertaining to his life and work. AGNES HUSSLEIN-ARCO is the director of the Belvedere Museum in Vienna, Austria. JANE KALLIR, co-director of the Galerie St. Etienne in New York City, is the author of the catalogue raisonné Egon Schiele: The Complete Works, and the curator of numerous exhibitions on Austrian art of the early twentieth century.

Exhibition Itinerary: Barbican Art Gallery, London March 3–May 22, 2011 Published in association with Barbican Art Gallery, London.

LAURIE ANDERSON, TRISHA BROWN, GORDON MATTA-CLARK PIONEERS OF THE DOWNTOWN SCENE, NEW YORK 1970S EDITED BY LYDIA YEE, WITH CONTRIBUTIONS BY ROSELEE GOLDBERG, ALANNA HEISS, AND PHILIP URSPRUNG Collaborators and friends, Laurie Anderson, Trisha Brown, and Gordon Matta-Clark were at the cutting edge of Manhattan’s burgeoning downtown art scene during the 1970s. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition at Barbican Art Gallery in London, which examines the crossover of these artists’ practices and the influence of their work on each other. Focusing on their mutual themes of performance, the body, the urban environment and found spaces, the book is divided into four sections: Downtown New York; Drawing and Performing; Urban Inventions; and Performance and Interaction. The city of New York in the 1970s, faced with bankruptcy, rising crime rates and unemployment, plays its own starring role in the book, as these artists worked in derelict city buildings for their large-scale projects and engaged directly with the public out of doors. This beautiful volume documents an exciting period in the history of contemporary art and reveals the lasting value of open exchange between artists.

This survey of leading women artists from the late twentieth century examines the crucial feminist contribution to the deconstructivist movement.

THE DECONSTRUCTIVE IMPULSE WOMEN ARTISTS RECONFIGURE THE SIGNS OF POWER, 1973–1991 EDITED BY NANCY PRINCENTHAL, WITH ESSAYS BY TOM MCDONOUGH, GRISELDA POLLOCK, HELAINE POSNER, NANCY PRINCENTHAL, AND KRISTINE STILES Among the artists included in the book are Dara Birnbaum, Sarah Charlesworth, The Guerrilla Girls, Susan Hiller, Jenny Holzer, Mary Kelly, Silvia Kolbowski, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler, Martha Rosler, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, Lorna Simpson, Carrie Mae Weems, and others.

The practice of deconstructivism, a term describing artwork that examines the imagery of the popular media, was significantly shaped by dozens of important female artists during a critical era in late twentieth-century visual culture. These artists subverted their source material, often by appropriating it, to expose the ways that commercial images express imbalances of power. The mechanisms of power in mainstream art institutions were also subject to these artists’ critique. This exhibition catalogue features a diverse group of North American women whose transformative and often provocative work deals with gender, sexual, racial, ethnic, and class-based inequities. Essays by leading critics discuss such topics as the importance of critical theory and sexual politics in the art world of the 1980s; how domesticity is represented in commercial media and the art that addresses it; the importance of psychoanalytic theory as a critical framework; and the sexualization of inanimate objects. NANCY PRINCENTHAL is a New York-based writer and former Senior Editor of Art in America.

DARA BIRNBAUM THE DARK MATTER OF MEDIA LIGHT EDITED BY KAREN KELLY, BARBARA SCHRÖDER, AND GIEL VANDECAVEYE For more than thirty years, Dara Birnbaum has occupied a crucial yet unique position in the field of video art and installation, with provocative and influential works that incisively critique the mass media and its effects on audience. This survey addresses the dearth of serious critical writing on Birnbaum’s innovative artistic activity. The maturation of her work in the late 1970s and early 1980s was accompanied by a distinctive awareness of the medium’s dominant form: commercial television. She has engaged in a lively analysis of the agendas and stereotypes hidden in society’s ascendant means of communication. This book combines images of her landmark pieces—such as Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman (1978–79), Damnation of Faust Trilogy (1983–87), and Elegy for Donna (2005), among other works—with fascinating dialogues between Birnbaum and the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist as well as numerous insightful essays. Including never-before-released images from the artist’s personal archives and bringing together early and recent works, this publication is the most comprehensive resource available on this important figure in contemporary art. KAREN KELLY is the Director of Publications and Special Programs at Dia Art Foundation. BARBARA SCHRÖDER is an art historian and editor at Dia Art Foundation.

DANCING WITH THE DARK JOAN SNYDER PRINTS 1963–2010 MARILYN SYMMES AND FAYE HIRSCH Perhaps best known for her considerable body of paintings, Joan Snyder is also an accomplished printmaker, freely experimenting with a wide variety of techniques. This catalogue to the first retrospective exhibition of Snyder’s prints presents more than 110 works that reflect her approach to the medium and explores aspects of nature as well as sexuality, intimacy, violence, and death. Infusing her prints with vibrant energy and color, Snyder employs and combines an array of techniques using etching, woodcut, lithography, monotype, and digital processes. Many of her prints are enhanced by colorful applications of paint and pastel. This volume features rare uneditioned prints, unique hand-colored monoprints, and outstanding examples of editioned prints with selected variant impressions or working proofs. The works date from her earliest woodcut portraits, executed during her student years, to her most recent prints. Also included in the book are two essays. One interprets her graphic imagery, the other traces Snyder’s life as an artist while presenting a chronology of her prints. MARILYN SYMMES is the Director of the Morse Research Center for Graphic Arts and the Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

This major monograph on the South African artist’s work of the last fifteen years highlights the powerful themes of isolation, alienation, and dislocation that characterize her sculptures.

CLAUDETTE SCHREUDERS RORY BESTER

Claudette Schreuders creates carved and painted wooden figures that reflect the ambiguities of the search for a postapartheid African identity. Her work is influenced by the traditional Blolo and Colon figures of West Africa, as well as other stylistic input from medieval church sculpture, Spanish portraiture, and Egyptian woodcarving. Schreuders’ personal history as a white descendent of colonial settlers in South Africa is reflected in these pieces, which are physical representations of human emotions. This book includes beautiful reproductions of Schreuders’ works, two in-depth essays, and a biography of the artist, making this the definitive volume on one of the preeminent South African artists working today. RORY BESTER is a curator and independent scholar based in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was an associate curator of The Short Century: Independence and Liberation Movements in Africa (Prestel).

URSULA VON RYDINGSVARD WORKING PATRICIA C. PHILLIPS, WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY HELAINE POSNER Von Rydingsvard’s massive sculptures reveal the trace of the human hand and resemble wooden bowls, tools, and walls that seem to echo the artist’s Polish heritage. Born in Germany in 1942, she and her family were among the dispossessed forced to move from one refugee camp to another for years after that country’s defeat; they eventually settled in the United States. The artist’s respect for organic materials and the dignity of labor, and the sense of loss, pain, and persistent memories that inform her work, may be traced back to these formative experiences. Essentially abstract, von Rydingsvard’s monumental site-specific work frequently references familiar forms, from mountains to simple tools and bowl-like vessels. The aggressive cuts and delicate lines made by the artist leave an indelible trace of human touch and intention. A selection of process shots, drawings, and views of works in various stages of construction lends additional context and a sense of the process behind the artist’s intensely physical and deeply personal art. PATRICIA PHILLIPS is Dean of Graduate Studies at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her essays and reviews have appeared in publications including Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, Sculpture, and Public Art Review. HELAINE POSNER is Chief Curator of the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, New York. Her books include After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art (Prestel).

This roll-call of British artists confirms the dominance and excellence of British art across five centuries, from Blake to Banksy, Turner to Tracey Emin.

50 BRITISH ARTISTS YOU SHOULD KNOW LUCINDA HAWKSLEY This highly readable and informative collection of the best of British art showcases magnificent portraits by Thomas Gainsborough and Stanley Spencer; landscapes by J. M. W. Turner and David Hockney; satire by William Hogarth and Gilbert & George; sculpture by Henry Moore and Rachel Whiteread; and the latest works by Grayson Perry and Damien Hirst. Each artist is presented in a double-page spread that features a major work, details from the work, a brief biography and fascinating insights into the artist’s life and times. Lucinda Hawksley’s engaging survey compares the skill of the Elizabethan miniaturists and the magnificence of the High Victorians with the grit of post-war British modernists and the best of the Young British Artists, whose fearless approach to controversial themes make them worthy inheritors of the great traditions of British art. LUCINDA HAWKSLEY is the author of numerous books on art, literature and British history, including Lizzie Siddal: The Tragedy of a Pre-Raphaelite Supermodel, Katey: The Life and Loves of Dickens’s Artist Daughter and The Secret History of Art. She lectures frequently at the National Portrait Gallery in London, is a patron of the Charles Dickens Museum in London, and is an award-winning travel writer.

Now available in a flexi format, this book is a magnificent survey of watercolour masterpieces from artists such as Turner, Blake, Constable, and Whistler.

BRITISH WATERCOLOURS, 1750–1880 ANDREW WILTON AND ANNE LYLES

This beautiful volume documents an important moment in the history of the watercolour, as its practitioners moved from the tinted drawings to the creation of fully fledged works of art that rivaled oil paintings in their expressiveness and technical brilliance. With its rolling hills, cloud-laden skies and ever-shifting light, Britain was the perfect setting for such a revolution, as artists packed sketchbooks, brushes and paints, and headed for the countryside. Authors Wilton and Lyles document the evolution of the British watercolour, from the more classically inspired eighteenth-century landscapes to the vivid experiments in Naturalism and Romanticism, with their concomitant studies in light and atmosphere. Over 300 exquisite reproductions allow readers to appreciate the delicate colours and fine lines of these important works, while the authors’ authoritative and eminently readable texts enhance the overall experience of witnessing the birth of an independent medium, and some of the most breathtaking examples of watercolours the world has ever known. John Sell Cotman, The Shepherd on the Hill, 1831

ANDREW WILTON was the founding curator of the Turner Collection in the Clore Gallery and the Keeper of British Art at Tate, London. He is currently a visiting research fellow at Tate Britain and Honorary Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. He is the author of several works on Turner and British Romantic painting. ANNE LYLES is a curator at Tate, London and a leading authority on the work of John Constable.

A seminal exhibition by the artist Daniel Buren at the Centre Pompidou in Paris is recreated through photographs of the since-destroyed pieces and illuminating reflections by the exhibition’s curator.

THE MUSEUM THAT DID NOT EXIST DANIEL BUREN TEXTS BY BERNARD BLISTÈNE, LAURENT LE BON, PATRICK BOUCHAIN, DOROTHEA VAN HANTELMANN

Since the late 1960s Daniel Buren has been challenging the traditional methods of presenting art through museums and galleries. Through his conceptual works Buren audaciously argues that the art and its viewing environment are both inextricable and antithetical. This beautiful volume takes readers on a tour of a spectacular exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The photographs depict Buren’s employment of the museum as a whole. The pieces, which he destroyed immediately after the exhibition closed, included hundreds of open cubes, mirrors, banners, and even a car park. Also featured are fascinating, behind-the-scenes accounts of the installation by the curator, Buren’s own pre-exhibition sketches, ideas, and floor plans, and perceptive essays that capture the significance of Buren’s daring achievement. BERNARD BLISTÈNE, formerly Deputy Director of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris (Centre George Pompidou), is Chief Curator of the Musées de France and has recently been appointed Inspector General of Fine Arts at the French Ministry of Culture. LAURENT LE BON is the Curator at the National Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou, Paris and he has recently been appointed as the Director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz. PATRICK BOUCHAIN has been a professor and an arts advisor in France.

This survey of five decades of late nineteenth and early twentieth century abstract art chronicles the evolution of a movement that the book argues was the inevitable precursor to Modernism. Published in association with the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia.

PATHS TO ABSTRACTION 1867–1917 EDITED BY TERENCE MALOON

Filled with full page reproductions as well as stunning details of some of the most influential abstract paintings of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this important volume follows the broad and diverse ways that painters such as Whistler, Monet, CĂŠzanne, Denis, Vuillard, Matisse, Derain, Picasso, and Braque learned from each other as they embarked on an entirely new kind of expression. Informative and fascinating essays explore questions such as how these artists arrived at such a convergence; why abstract art took root so quickly; and why has it never been singled out by critics or historians as an independent art movement. This beautifully produced volume illustrates how abstraction arose directly from a tradition of speculation about the nature of art and aesthetic experience. TERENCE MALOON, Senior Curator of Special Exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, was previously the art critic for the Sydney Morning Herald.

Now available again, this stunning volume examines the life and work of Fritz Scholder, the most influential, successful, and controversial Native American artist of the twentieth century.

FRITZ SCHOLDER INDIAN/NOT INDIAN LOWERY STOKES SIMS

In the 1960s and ’70s, the notion of American Indian art was turned on its head by artists who fought against prejudice and popular clichés. At the forefront of this revolution was Scholder (1937–2005), whose portrayals of Native American life combined realism, tragedy, and spirituality with the genres of abstract expressionism and pop art. This volume features hundreds of works from Scholder’s career as a painter, printmaker, and sculptor. Essays explore the artist’s major themes—humanity’s place in the natural world, ancient mythical beings, women, Christian iconography, the millennium, and the afterlife as well as Scholder’s role in the Native American community and the art world. A fascinating figure who fearlessly took on his own contradictions and those of his times, Scholder continues to generate passionate discussion. Fritz Scholder: Indian/Not Indian offers a lively, insightful exploration of his place in twentieth-century American art history as a colorist, expressionist, and figurative painter. Curator and scholar LOWERY STOKES SIMS has written extensively on artists of color in the global arena. TRUMAN T. LOWE and artist PAUL CHAAT SMITH are curators at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.

This volume presents for the first time in book form important and largely unknown treasures of Indo-Kashmiri Buddhism.

HEAVENLY HIMALAYAS THE MURALS OF MANGYU AND OTHER DISCOVERIES IN LADAKH PETER VAN HAM From the first century BCE to the thirteenth century, Kashmir was a thriving center of Buddhist culture and art. The rise of Islamic peoples led to the destruction of all temples constructed there during the Buddhist era. Yet in the remote Himalayas of Ladakh and other neighboring locations, a few of these archaeological and artistic treasures are exquisitely preserved and are reproduced here for the first time. This volume takes readers on a journey through these remote sites, focusing especially on the amazing temple complex of Mangyu. The chapels, shrines, and dazzling murals presented here not only reveal much about late Mahayana Buddhism in India—its art, culture, and history—but also help fill a gap in our knowledge of the development of early Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. PETER VAN HAM has been traveling the Himalayas studying early Tibetan cultural sites for more than two decades. He has published numerous books on the subject, including a study of Kashmir-influenced art in temples on the IndoTibetan border. With contributions by Rob Linrothe, an art historian who lives in Chicago; Gerald Kozicz, an architect who lives in Graz, Austria; and Amy Heller, a tibetologist who lives in Geneva, Switzerland. Foreword by His Eminence, Jigmed Wangchuk Namgyal, the King of Ladakh.

THE FUTURE OF TRADITION— TRADITION OF THE FUTURE CHRIS DERCON, LEÓN KREMPEL, AND AVINOAM SHALEM

A century ago, the exhibition “Masterpieces of Muhammadan Art” at the Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany, introduced the Western world to the artistic splendors of the East. Artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc, along with thousands of other visitors, were inspired by the works’ colorful abstractions and technical brilliance. One hundred years later, thirty of the pieces from the original exhibition have been reintroduced alongside contemporary and previously unexhibited examples of Islamic art, design, photography and fashion. The juxtaposition highlights issues, such as how we define Islamic art today, the role of the avant-garde in past and contemporary art, and how the 1910 exhibition was a turning point for the reception and exploration of Islamic art in the West. These and other perspectives are explored in lively essays by scholars and curators. Beautiful color reproductions allow readers to appreciate the enduring traditions as well as the remarkable developments in Islamic art. CHRIS DERCON has curated numerous exhibitions in Paris and Rotterdam. He is Director of the Haus der Kunst in Munich. LEÓN KREMPEL is curator at Haus der Kunst. AVINOAM SHALEM is Professor for the History of Islamic Art at the LudwigMaximilians University in Munich.

As they read the book, children are invited to wander through a virtual art gallery where each room features a different color. Beginning with black and white, going through the primary colors, the mixed colors, and finishing with brown and gold, the book presents the evolution of pigment in art works from cave drawings to contemporary paintings. In addition, entertaining puzzles, quizzes and activities will spark children’s creativity. Beautifully designed for reading alone or with an adult, Red Yellow Blue gives children access to the complex world of color in a language and style they will respond to and enjoy. SILKE VRY is a graphic artist, archaeologist, and art historian. Her numerous books include Trick of the Eye: Art and Illusion (Prestel).

This engaging book introduces young readers to the enormous variety of art that exists within the natural environment.

EARTH, SEA, SUN, AND SKY ART IN NATURE BARBARA STIEFF

Art can be a garden; a spiral of broken pebbles or dandelions; a wheat field in a former garbage dump. It can be made of wood carved with a chainsaw or a drawing using dust and earth. It can be transitory—painted on sand only to be erased by waves; or it can be built to last, like sculpture gardens by renowned artists. Filled with beautiful images, this book will help children appreciate the different ways that artists employ nature in their work. It examines an array of examples, including sculpture gardens, mazes, land art, and nature-related works in museums while exploring the works of international artists, including Niki de Saint Phalle, Daniel Spoerri, Antonio Gaudi, Christo, the Ant Farm, Nancy Holt, Joseph Beuys, Agnes Denes, and Andy Goldsworthy. The book provides readers with a wealth of ideas for creating their own paintings, drawings, sculptures, and experiments. Children will experience hours of inspiration as they discover the artistic possibilities that exist in the natural world. BARBARA STIEFF is an author and stage director who has worked closely with the ZOOM children’s museum in Vienna. She is the author of Hundertwasser for Children (Prestel).

Hokusai’s classic woodcut of a majestic wave becomes the starting point for a storybook children will want to read again and again.

THE GREAT WAVE A CHILDREN’S BOOK INSPIRED BY HOKUSAI TEXT BY VÉRONIQUE MASSENOT ILLUSTRATIONS BY BRUNO PILORGET On a stormy winter’s day, a baby boy, Naoki, is swept into a fisherman’s boat by a great wave. Years pass, but still Naoki does not grow. Must he return to the ocean in order to become a young man? The answer arrives in the form of a mythic fish. Japanese artist Hokusai is one of the world’s most celebrated printmakers. His famous woodcut, “The Great Wave,” epitomizes the artist’s characteristic techniques and themes. In this children’s book, the artist’s masterpiece is the genesis for a simple but compelling story, beautifully illustrated in pictures that recall Hokusai’s brilliant use of detail, perspective and color. A stunning reproduction of the woodcut itself is featured in the book, supplemented by information about the artist and his work. At once modern and classic, The Great Wave introduces young readers to a beloved artist and his timeless portrayals of nature and transformation. VÉRONIQUE MASSENOT studied art history and archeology before she started writing novels and short stories for children. BRUNO PILORGET works as an illustrator and has exhibited his paintings worldwide. He lives in Brittany, France.

The most recent publication from the award-winning photographer Pieter Hugo reveals the devastating consequences of toxic waste on one community in Africa.

PERMANENT ERROR PIETER HUGO

In his previous well–received volumes of photographs, Hugo offers unflinching yet striking portraits of humans, animals, societies, and landscapes that shock and disturb, but also demand our attention. In Permanent Error, he documents a garbage dump in Ghana that has become the repository for discarded computers from around the world. These haunting images document the true cost of a misguided policy—the shipping of millions of tons of obsolete computers to developing countries. The computers are burned to extract valuable metals, effectively turning the site into a toxic wasteland that contaminates air, soil, and groundwater for miles around. These amazing portraits tell a story of a marginal community overwhelmed by poverty, but where human strength and resilience shine through the inhuman conditions Hugo lays bare. PIETER HUGO’s previous books include The Hyena & Other Men and Nollywood (both by Prestel). He lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

The first monograph on this important Indian photographer features selections from each of his major series, offering a comprehensive overview of Sunil Gupta’s work to date.

QUEER SUNIL GUPTA

Arguably India’s best-known working photographer, Gupta is also a well-known artist, curator, and writer. For decades he has explored narratives of contemporary gay life in India and other parts of the world; tackled issues of gender and sexuality; and documented his own experiences living with AIDS. This volume chronicles Gupta’s divergent series, which range from narrative portraits to fictional photo essays. Beautifully reproduced, these photos include his renowned series “The Pre-Raphaelites”; heart-rending images of children living in an HIV-positive care center; 1970s street scenes from New York City’s West Village; and his groundbreaking portraits of gay men, women, and transgender individuals living in his native country and struggling against homophobic laws and culture. Subversive, whimsical, personal, and political, Sunil Gupta’s photographs have done much to raise awareness about—and overcome the taboos of—homosexual life throughout the modern world. SUNIL GUPTA was born in Delhi, India and has spent time living in Canada, London, and New York. His photographs have appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions and are in the permanent collections of museums in the United States, England, and Australia. He writes frequently about gay culture and history.

This collection of legendary images from some of the world’s most revered photographers celebrates a dynamic era in all its glory and excitement.

ZEITGEIST & GLAMOUR PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE '60S AND '70S EDITED BY NICOLA ERNI, IN CO-OPERATION WITH PETRA GILOY-HIRTZ AND IRA STEHMANN The 1960s and ’70s were a time when mainstream culture was turned on its head. Everything from fashion and music to politics and religion was questioned or reinvented while technological advances allowed people around the world to witness these incredible changes. Drawn from the Nicola Erni Collection, the spectacular images in this volume represent the iconic people, places, and events of the era, and were created by the most celebrated photographers of their time as well as press photographers. Iconic figures such as Jackie Kennedy, Mick Jagger, Maria Callas, and Truman Capote; happening locales such as Warhol’s Factory, Studio 54, and London’s nightclubs; the jet-setting scenes of Saint-Tropez, St. Moritz, Paris, and Rome—it’s all here as viewed through the lenses of Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Francesco Scavullo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Lord Snowdon, Andy Warhol, and others. A fascinating introductory essay explores the era’s cultural scene and examines the art of celebrity photography. Pulsing with life and creativity, this treasure trove of photographs preserves for posterity an unforgettable time. NICOLA ERNI is an entrepreneur and a passionate collector of contemporary art. PETRA GILOY-HIRTZ is a curator, author and editor and co-curator of the Nicola Erni Collection. IRA STEHMANN is a photography consultant and co-curator of the Nicola Erni Collection.

This richly illustrated and valuable resource reaches back five centuries to document the evolution and ingenuity of house design in the British Isles.

HOUSE BRITISH DOMESTIC ARCHITECTURE PHILIPPA LEWIS The architecture of Britain’s houses displays a dizzying variety of styles and details. Brimming with 600 full-color photographs, House annotates hundreds of examples from every conceivable angle: from gables and pediments to chimneys and roofs; from bow windows and casements to fanlights and door furniture. Armed with a career’s worth of experience and research, Philippa Lewis takes readers up and down the country to feature examples of typically British building, including cottages, manor houses, castles, bungalows, and flats. She also looks at houses built from a wide variety of materials, including stone, glass, wood, brick, and even corrugated iron, in different settings such as rural, suburban, seaside, and urban. Lively texts help identify specific details and place them in their historical context, as well as offering compelling examples of how innovative conversions of structures such as watermills, gatehouses, and churches reflect and sustain their environment. Readers interested in architectural history and design, and anyone looking to understand the nooks and crannies of their own home, will find this unique guide the most eye-opening and comprehensive of its kind. PHILIPPA LEWIS is the author of Everything You Can Do in the Garden without Actually Gardening and co-author of A Dictionary of Ornament. She lives in Somerset, England.

FREE UNIVERSITY OF BERLIN THE PHILOLOGICAL LIBRARY DAVID JENKINS, KARL KIEM, AND NORMAN FOSTER This building monograph details the newest addition to one of Berlin’s most important institutions, conceived and built by leading architect Norman Foster.

Occupying a central role in the intellectual life of Berlin since the end of World War II, the Free University is one of the leading universities in Germany. Its long-awaited redevelopment includes the restoration of the campus’ iconic Modernist buildings and the design of a new library for the Faculty of Philology. This volume documents the construction of that structure. Photographs, sketches, drawings, and plans, accompanied by brief essays, reveal how this sleek and handsome four-story structure employs the principles of radial geometry. Featuring many of the cutting-edge concepts of its acclaimed architect Norman Foster, this library’s serpentine profile of floors generates a sequence of light-filled spaces that inspire learning as well as provide an optimal environment for reading and studying. PETER BUCHANAN is a writer and critic who has served as deputy editor of the Architectural Review for nearly a decade. KARL KIEM is a professor of architectural history and preservation at the University of Siegen in Germany.

CARRÉ D’ART NORMAN FOSTER AND CHRIS ABEL This book examines the Carré d’Art project, a modern library of art and technology inspired by an ancient Roman temple in the French city of Nimes.

Located across the street from one of Nimes’s most distinctive Roman antiquities, the Roman Maison Carré, sits the Carré d’Art, a media library which also houses an impressive art gallery. Designed by the renowned architect Norman Foster, the Carré d’Art draws from the antiquity of its namesake while ingeniously interacting with the contemporary demands of an urban environment. The result is an urban space, lined with cafés and thronged with people, that has breathed new life into Nimes’s social and cultural atmosphere. Filled with photographs, sketches, plans, and commentary on the building’s conception and design, this book illustrates how a building project, backed by an enlightened urban planning initiative, can provide a catalyst for reinvigorating the fabric of a city. NORMAN FOSTER is Founder and Chairman of Foster + Partners. CHRIS ABEL is an architectural theorist, critic, and lecturer.
