    Sir Joshua Reynolds, the first President of the Royal Academy of Arts in London, was the most celebrated and innovative British portraitist of the eighteenth century. He was acclaimed for transforming portraiture into an art form that had all the ambition, depth and animation of history painting, and that could communicate the most complex personal, psychological and social narratives. This book offers a deeply researched and compellingly written investigation of the portraiture that brought Reynolds such fame. It provides a detailed account of the artist's varied career in a highly competitive marketplace for portraiture, offers close readings of his most striking and intriguing canvases, and pays particular attention to the dynamic ways in which he exploited the new forms of print culture and pictorial display that were emerging in late eighteenth-century Georgian London. Ranging across all aspects of his practice in the genre, "Reynolds: Portraiture in Action" offers a highly original reassessment of an especially important and influential figure in the history of British art.

    Bruce Davidson (b. 1933) and Paul Caponigro (b. 1932) are two of the greatest American photographers of their generation. Working in different traditions, and exhibiting fundamentally distinct approaches, they are both brilliant observers whose art inspires and provokes. This book, the first to pair the two, examines the work they produced during visits to Britain and Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s. The gritty sensibility that made Bruce Davidson's series Brooklyn Gang such a sensation was unmistakable as he trained his camera on the gamut of British society, travelling from London to Scotland and later to the mining region of Wales. Paul Caponigro, steeped in a formalist black-and-white landscape tradition, made expressive portraits of prehistoric stone circles, dolmens, and ancient Irish churches in the landscape. "Bruce Davidson/Paul Caponigro" brings the work of these artists together into a dramatic visual dialogue.

    This retrospective catalogue features vintage prints as well as recent, unpublished work by internationally acclaimed photographer Josef Koudelka (b. 1938). A leading member of the photo agency Magnum, co-founded by his close friend Henri Cartier-Bresson, Koudelka has been a legend since the publication of his unforgettable eyewitness photographs taken during the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Soviet-led troops in 1968. In addition to Invasion and Exiles, Koudelka's most ambitious project, Gypsies, is featured with the complete set of twenty-two prints first exhibited in 1967. Wilfully independent and reclusive despite his renown, Koudelka's impressive imagery is accompanied here by five essays that provide a thorough understanding and appreciation of this outstanding artist.

    City scenes have been chronicled in photographs since the early 1800s, but street photography as traditionally defined has captured a relatively narrow field of these images. Revolutionizing the history of street photography, "Unfamiliar Streets" explores the work of Richard Avedon (1923-2004), Charles Moore (1931-2010), Martha Rosler (b. 1943), and Philip-Lorca diCorcia (b. 1951), American photographers whose careers in fashion, photojournalism, conceptual art, and contemporary art are not usually associated with the genre. The lively and engaging text, a timely response to a growing interest in urban photography, challenges the traditional understanding of street photography and makes original and important connections between urban culture and the visual arts, constructing a new historical model for understanding street photography. Gorgeously illustrated with more than one hundred images, this book provides an interpretation of a compelling genre that is as fresh as its consideration of the city streets themselves, sites of commerce, dispossession, desire, demonstration, power, and spectacle.

    This book is designed and conceived to complement. In the "Picture", his 2011 volume of self-portraits, Lee Friedlander's "Family in the Picture" is the family album of one of the most restless and inventive figures in the history of photography. The sequence of over 350 pictures begins with images of Friedlander's wife, Maria, at the beginning of their marriage, and interweaves major life events such as births, weddings and funerals with moments that are less outwardly momentous yet equally moving. Although some of the pictures are well known, the majority of images have only recently been unearthed from Friedlander's personal archive. This compendium of pictures, spanning over a half-century, chronicles the photographer's family with arresting frankness, poignancy, and a moral: that life goes on.

    The flourishing of photography as a medium in the mid-19th century coincided with a rise in curiosity about China on the part of the Western world. As the number of foreigners living and travelling in China increased, early photographs of China were taken by and for an international audience. Impressions of a Lost World assembles 250 fascinating images of China in the second half of the 19th century and first half of the 20th, captured by the Western camera lens. The photographs portray the gritty side of the country as well as stunning views of palaces, temples, harbours and gardens. This juxtaposition of the sordid and the serene provides a multidimensional picture of China's physical and social landscape before Mao Zedong's ascent to power changed the country forever. The photographs, many published here for the first time, are both beautiful and moving, and together offer a new understanding of a social and cultural history associated with a time of significant historical change.

    For more than forty years, American photographer Anthony Friedkin (b. 1949), creating full-frame black-and-white images, has documented people, cities and landscapes primarily in his home state of California. During the culturally tumultuous years of 1969 and 1970, Friedkin made a series of photographs that together offer an eloquent and expressive visual chronicle of the gay communities of Los Angeles and San Francisco at the time. This is the first book to explore the series, titled "The Gay Essay", in depth within the broader historical context that gave rise to it. 1969 witnessed the Stonewall riots in New York City and was a turning point in the history of community building and organized political activism among homosexuals in the United States. "The Gay Essay" provides a singular, intimate record of this crucial moment. Friedkin's portraits, taken in streets, hotels, bars, and dancehalls, demonstrate a sensitivity and an understanding that has imbued the photographs with an enduring resonance. This handsome book features seventy-five full-page plates and is accompanied by engaging essays and a poem by Eileen Myles

    Canadian filmmaker and artist Michael Snow (b. 1929) is known as a pioneer of conceptualist and multimedia practice. His seminal film Wavelength (1967), described as a "45-minute zoom", investigates the relationship between time and space, a subject the artist has explored throughout his career in a variety of mediums. Although considered one of the most important experimental filmmakers of his generation, Snow is less known in the United States for his visual art, including photography. "Michael Snow: Photo-Centric" focuses on a selection of the artist's photographic work from 1962 to the present. The book considers Snow's interest in late modernism's self-reflexivity and, specifically, his exploration of how the mechanics of photography affect perception, cognition and consciousness. Essays by Adelina Vlas and the artist himself consider the importance of Snow's photographic work within his larger practice, its connection with and continuation of modernist ideas, and its experimental quality within the history of the medium.

Featuring 100 colour illustrations, the book also includes a trio of essays by authors Mark Godfrey, Roxana Marcoci, and Matthew S.

Committed to the history of photography as a medium of art and intellectual inquiry, Williams' current series tackles the interplay of photography and cinema, upending viewer expectations and the role of spectacle.

    This spectacular five-decade survey of paintings, drawings and prints by Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) features over 100 works drawn primarily from the outstanding collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Milwaukee Art Museum. The comprehensive catalogue traces the artist's development from his formative period in Munich and his co-founding of the Blue Rider group and pivotal turn towards abstraction, to his return to Russia during the war, to his prolific work at the Weimar Bauhaus and final years in Paris. New scholarship illuminates murals Kandinsky designed in 1922, contextualizing this project at the transition from his Russian period to his time at the Bauhaus, where he taught mural painting and plunged fully into abstraction. Close examination of the works of art, Kandinsky's rich body of theoretical texts, and their pedagogical significance provides the foundation for essays on the celebrated artist's promotion of abstraction and on the reception of his work in the 21st century; today his artistic and theoretical output continues to inspire students, scholars and artists. Short texts on key works of art and timelines generously enhanced by archival photographs augment the catalogue.

    Adrian Stokes was one of the twentieth century's finest and most discriminating writers on art. Of over twenty works of art criticism, Michelangelo was considered by Lawrence Gowing to be the most complete he ever wrote, presenting an understanding of the great artist that no one subsequently could afford to ignore. Stokes brings to bear in this work not only twenty-five years' study and appreciation of Italian Renaissance art and of aesthetics, but also a unique psychological perspective, as he explains in his introduction, which enables him to uncover the depths of the artist's personality. The subtlety of feeling and profound knowledge of sculpture which Sir Herbert Read admired in Stokes's work is also combined with a literary style perfected through his own poetry and criticism. Presenting a unique survey of his subject's literary as well as his artistic legacy, Stokes succeeds, as no other has before or since, in his aim of bringing Michelangelo's greatness into nearer view.

    Alfresco draws on the remarkable photography of Gilles de Chabaneix to present a marvellous evocation of the delights of living alfresco around the world. This catalogue of opportunities for getting the best out of outdoor lifestyles is reflected in the following sections: Outside the Home is all about reclaiming nature: how we impose ourselves on the areas around our homes, from terraces in Corsica to gardens in Provence and parks in Scotland. Transitional Spaces looks at the more elaborate structures we create to facilitate our enjoyment of the outdoors, while still remaining close to the comforts of our homes: verandas, terraces, patios and backyards. Rooms Outside surveys the many types of building specifically created away from the main home for the enjoyment of an outdoor lifestyle: garden pavilions in Bali and Mauritius, summer-houses in Stockholm. Bringing the Outside In illustrates the many types of found objects of the alfresco world - stones, bones, wood, dried fruit and flowers - which can make fascinating and original additions to any domestic environment. Living Outside is a celebration of the ultimate goal of an alfresco lifestyle - the ability to carry out all the activities associated with normal domestic life outside the home - eating, cooking, sleeping, bathing all seem strangely more interesting and exciting in the open air, as do visits to markets and restaurants, also included in this section.

    The Cambridge Companion to Masaccio explores the visual, intellectual, and religious culture of Renaissance Florence in the age of Masaccio, 1401-1428. Written by a team of internationally renowned scholars and conservators, the essays in this volume investigate the artistic, civic, and sacred contexts of Masaccio's works and the sites in which they were seen. They also reassess the artist's connection to the past, especially to medieval workshop practices, ancient and Gothic art, as well as his novel experiments with technique, perspective, and narrative. Collectively, they re-evaluate his association with Brunelleschi, Ghiberti, Donatello, and his collaborator Masolino. Inspired by the 600th anniversary of Masaccio's birth, The Cambridge Companion to Masaccio celebrates the achievements, influence and legacy of early Renaissance art and one of its greatest masters.

    Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was not only a central figure in the Impressionist movement but a major influence on the development of modern art. He was the only artist to exhibit at all eight of the Impressionist exhibitions between 1874 and 1886, and his letters are a fascinating and invaluable source of information on the theoretical aspects and practical implications of Impressionism. Pissarro's career touched that of an extraordinary number of his contemporaries, to whom he was often a teacher and always a friend. In his early years he worked with Monet; in the 1870s he painted in close friendship with Cezanne; he was a guide for Gauguin, whom he introduced to the Impressionist group; and in the 1880s he flirted with Neo-Impressionism with Seurat. This book charts the evolution of his painting, and celebrates his compositional brilliance, technical skill and innovatory approach, forty-eight full-page colour plated, combined with Christopher Lloyd's illuminating text, constitute a superb introduction to the artist. His essay on Pissaro, first published in 1979, has been revised and updated, with the addition of commentaries to each plate written by Amanda Renshaw, and a wide selection of comparative illustrations.

    Now in paperback, "Gauguin Tahiti" offers an in-depth study of the fabled Polynesian years that have so defined our image of the painter. Alongside essays on every aspect of Gauguin's art, from the legendary canvases to his sculptures, ceramics and innovative graphic works, are discussions of the Polynesian society, culture and religion that helped shape them; an in-depth biographical narrative, with the many epiphanies, frustrations and discoveries that make his time in the South Seas one of the most mythologically potent episodes in Western art; and a chronicle of his changing fortunes in the century since his death. At the center of it all is Gauguin's 1897 masterpiece, "Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?," the crowning glory of his mature career, presented with unprecedented depth and authority. Over 100 years later, Gauguin remains one of the most enigmatic and attractive figures of nineteenth-century art, the very pivot of modernism, and "Gauguin Tahiti" portrays this crucial period of his life in all its color and drama. Of the hardback edition, John Richardson wrote in "Vanity Fair": "This excellent catalogue sets the record straight." And writing in the "New York Observer," Hilton Kramer declared it, "the most exhaustive account of the period that has ever been attempted in a single survey... well-written, scrupulously documented, and lavishly illustrated."

    Stretching from Paris to Le Havre, the Seine river and the valley flanking it afford some of France's loveliest views. The ports, holiday homes and artists' houses, the boats, the washerwomen, the windmills, the open-air cafes, the picnics and the bathing supplied French painting with some of its most iconic images, particularly during the Impressionist era, when painting stepped out of the studio and into the world. It was in this period, as the industrial revolution began to get underway and the landscape began to alter accordingly, through the development of railways, ports and factories, that the rural world it threatened became an increasingly popular subject for painting. This volume brings together 60 paintings painted on the banks of the Seine, retracing the history of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism to Fauvism, from Eugene Boudin to Henri Matisse. En route we encounter such familiar figures as Manet, Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, Sisley and Caillebotte, but also lesser-known figures such as Armand Guillaumin, Henri Rouart and Maximilien Luce.

    Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) is notorious for various forms of excess - excess in his love life, an excessive output, an excessively inconsistent style. In this groundbreaking book Elizabeth Cowling draws on her exceptional knowledge as an authority on Picasso to argue that he came to equate stylistic consistency with sterility. Abandoning the traditional use of subject matter to achieve variety and meaning, Picasso gradually reduced his to a handful of standardized motifs and used a vast array of different styles as the principal means of communicating ideas and feelings.

Numerous artists subsequently caught Greco fever when they first saw larger groups of his works in exhibitions in Munich in 1911 and Düsseldorf in 1912. Max Beckmann, Oskar Kokoschka, Max Oppenheimer, Ludwig Meidner, and especially members of the Blaue Reiter August Macke, Franz Marc, Albert Bloch, and others recognized in El Greco a father figure for the Modernist movement, mentioning him in the same breath as Paul Cézanne. This volume presents a general selection of over forty paintings by El Greco from the most famous museums around the world.

From his earliest photographs to those taken today, his work demonstrates a profound sensitivity to and appreciation for the spaces in which people live.

    This catalogue accompanies a major exhibition devoted to Vasily Kandinsky. It explores the evolution of his work from the Blaue Reiter to the Bauhaus years. During this period, Kandinsky developed his revolutionary abstract style and began to move beyond conventional easel painting. As master of the mural workshop at the Bauhaus, Kandinsky was able to put his ambition to create large-scale art environments into practice, particularly in his mural designs for the 1922 Juryfreie exhibition in Berlin and later in his decorations for the Salon de Musique in 1931. At this time, he developed a strong interest in the Wagnerian concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art. Embracing the principles of synesthesia, Kandinsky focused on the relationship between art and music, pushing the boundaries of the medium.Vasily Kandinsky (1866–1944) began painting at the age of 30, after putting aside a highly successful career in law. After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, he returned to his native Moscow just after the outbreak of World War I. Uninspired by the prevalent Suprematist and Futurist art there, he returned to Germany in 1921, teaching at the Bauhaus until the school was closed by the Nazis. He then moved to France, where he lived until his death in 1944.

    While Edgar Degas has long been considered one of the major pioneers of modern art, exhibitions of his work remain a surprisingly rare occurrence, and the enduring popularity of the "beautiful" paintings of his Impressionist phase can obscure the overall complexity of his oeuvre. But Degas experimented with various media--drawing and printing techniques, pastel, photography, sculpture--throughout his life, and, after putting Impressionism behind him in 1880, he reached the undoubted culmination of his art in his daring and unique late work. In the artworks he created between 1890 and 1912, the delicate, detailed painting of his mature period gives way to an unbridled pleasure in technical experimentation and an obsessive creativity that increasingly liberates the means of depiction from any straightforward representational function. As if in a dreamlike state, Degas conflates past and present, things seen and remembered, to create his renowned depictions of dancers and female nudes, jockeys and racehorses, landscapes and portraits. Edgar Degas: The Late Work is the first publication to present a comprehensive overview of the technical diversity and wide range of themes in Degas' oeuvre, and is published to coincide with an exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen/Basel.
    A founder of the French Impressionist movement, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) began to paint early in life, possessing a studio by the age of 18, and working primarily in history painting up until 1864, when he met Manet (while both were copying the same Velazquez portrait in the Louvre, according to legend). In 1872 he lived in New Orleans, producing several portraits of his extended family there. By the 1880s, his works commanded sufficient prices to permit him to collect works by many of his contemporaries, as well as older masters such as El Greco, Ingres and Delacroix.

Bosch, Bruegel, Rubens, Rembrandt presents over 150 of the best of these works, and includes outstanding individual specimens from the circles around Jan van Eyck, Petrus Christus and Dirk Bouts. Works by Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel the Elder form one of the first highlights of this astounding collection. The rest of the sixteenth century is represented by drawings from artists such as Jan Gossaert, Maarten van Heemskerck and Hendrick Goltzius. The focus of the collection, however, is Holland’s “Golden Age,” the seventeenth century, with important works by Rembrandt van Rijn and his school. The southern Netherlands, once dominated by the House of Hapsburg, is represented by the most famous Flemish masters of the age: Peter Paul Rubens, Anton van Dyck and Jacob Jordaens. Ranging from preparatory drawings for larger works of painting, stained glass, engravings or altars to “autonomous” works that stand alone, this catalogue offers a full spectrum of landscapes, seascapes, topographical views, portraits, rural genre scenes and still lifes.

    Great works of art cannot be fully understood in a single encounter: to revisit and reconsider art again and again throughout one’s life is to be richly rewarded with an ever-deepening appreciation and insight. Similar benefits come from analysing a work of painting, sculpture or installation in detail. Modern Art in Detail: 75 Masterpieces spotlights the finer points that even connoisseurs may miss, casting light upon minutiae that a quick glance will almost certainly fail to reveal. These include subtle internal details, and the technical tricks employed by the artist to achieve particular effects. The book also looks at the themes and external and personal factors influencing the creation of an artwork – everything from global political events, to groundbreaking movements such as Cubism, Futurism and Primitivism, and even scientific and mathematical theories, which are often of great relevance. The book examines 75 works of modern art, from Vincent van Gogh’s The Church at Auvers-sur-Oise (1890), to Paula Rego’s Visions (2015) , deftly charting the shift from the supremacy of artistic technique to the more recent dominance of the idea (or concept) behind the artwork itself.
