Located between California and Nevada, the vast body of water known as Lake Tahoe has lured artists to its shores for centuries. This lavishly illustrated, large-scale book celebrates Lake Tahoe, as well as Pyramid Lake, Donner Lake, and the surrounding Sierra Nevada region’s magnificent scenic beauty, through more than 350 paintings, photographs, buildings, and objects. This deluxe volume features lush landscape paintings by Albert Bierstadt, Marianne North, and Thomas Moran; photographs by Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Dorothea Lange, and Edward Weston; Native American Washoe baskets; historical maps and sketches by the region’s early explorers; ephemera related to Tahoe tourism of the 1940s–60s; and architectural drawings, such as Frank Lloyd Wright’s proposed cabin community in Emerald Bay and the historic Glen Alpine Springs Lodge design by Bernard Maybeck. Lake Tahoe continues to attract artists, writers, designers, scientists, and other visitors who recognize the unique qualities that the destination has to offer. Ann M. Wolfe is senior curator and deputy director of the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno.

Enrico Donati EDITED BY DAWN ADES CONTRIBUTIONS BY ANN TEMKIN, MARIE MAUZÉ, AND CINDY ALBERTSON

ART 336 pages, 95 x 12” 280 color and b/w illustrations HC w/jacket: 978-0-8478-4642-9 $95.00 Can: $95.00 UK: £65.00 October 6, 2015 Rights: World SKIRA RIZZOLI

Enrico Donati first found acclaim when the master of Surrealism, André Breton, lauded him the savior of the movement in 1942. Donati went on to exhibit with major figures of the New York School, such as Rothko, de Kooning, and Pollock. Spanning well over half a century, his artistic career was extraordinarily rich, and he was associated with many of the most influential movements and groups of artists of the time, but fundamentally he remained independent and enigmatic. Dawn Ades acquaints the reader with Donati’s formative relationship to the Surrealists and then moves through his postwar painting up to his death in 2008. Dawn Ades has written extensively about twentieth-century art. Her books include Salvador Dalí, André Masson, and Marcel Duchamp. Ann Temkin is chief curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Marie Mauzé is a distinguished ethnographer and specialist in the art of the Pacific Northwest and in the history of the relationship between art and ethnography in the twentieth century. Cindy Albertson is a conservator at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
