Описание: Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles is a fantastical folly in the land of make-believe. As Harry Cohn, the founder of Columbia Pictures, said in 1939, "If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont." Several generations of actors, directors, writers and artists have heeded Cohn's advice, from Dorothy Parker and F. Scott Fitzgerald to Hunter S. Thompson and Jim Morrison. The hotel has provided a refuge where both partying and privacy are equally available--where you can hole up to write a script or ride your motorcycle through the hotel lobby (as Led Zeppelin once did). James Dean climbed through a window of the hotel to audition with Natalie Wood for Rebel Without a Cause; Jean Harlow and Clark Gable conducted an illicit affair there; Jim Morrison used up what he called "the eight of my nine lives" when he fell off its roof; and celebrities from Greta Garbo to Howard Hughes have taken up extended residence within its hallowed walls. Asleep at the Chateau pays homage to this fabled place by picturing its quieter moments. Here, photographer Jork Weismann portrays a range of celebrities asleep at the Chateau--among them Bret Easton Ellis, Kirsty Hume, Patti Smith, Orlando Bloom, Juergen Teller, Sally Singer and Justin Theroux. Sprawled out in chairs, on couches or across the floor, Weismann's subjects reveal both themselves and the Chateau as they have never before been portrayed.

Описание: A stones throw from Aix-en-Provence is the Chateau la Coste, a unique alliance of wine, architecture and art, dedicated to producing organic wines. At its heart are the Vat room designed by Jean Nouvel and an art centre designed by the great Japanese architect, Tadao Ando. For over a decade, Chateau la Coste has invited artists to find a location on the estate that inspires them to create a work of art to occupy it. Gradually over the years, a remarkable site has emerged. After Richard Serra came Sean Scully, Andy Goldsworthy, Frank Gehry, Tom Shannon, Tunga, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Guggi, Tatsuo Miyajima, Liam Gillick, Jean- Michel Othoniel, Michael Stipe, Paul Matisse, Larry Neufeld, Tracey Emin, and more recently Lee Ufan. There are also emblematic works by Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder and Franz West set in a decor of stone walls, former navigation channels, paved pathways and a beautiful oak forest. The beautifully reproduced photographs in this book offer a glimpse of this estate, where art and wine cohabit in harmony.

Описание: Originally from France, the du Pont family settled in the Brandywine River Valley. Chateau Country is an intimate portrait of the houses built by this Delaware dynasty. Their first dwelling was a modest six-room house just steps from the gunpowder mills that made the du Ponts wealthy. One hundred years later, their largest house had 176 rooms and thirty-six servants on 2,300 acres of land. Since company founder E.I. du Pont built Eleutherian Mills in 1802, almost one hundred houses have been built nearby and occupied by his descendants. Many spectacular estate houses have been razed, but thirty-three du Pont family properties that still exist are explored and accompanied by anecdotes. Some, including Eleutherian Mills, Longwood, Gibraltar, Nemours, and Winterthur, are open to the public; others remain hidden behind stone walls. Chateau Country takes readers inside these houses and describes a way of life that has all but disappeared.

Описание: Edouard Baldus (1813-1889) was the most important French architectural photographer of the mid-nineteenth century. This book offers an in-depth exploration
of one of his most intriguing projects - a remarkable series of views of the Chateau de La Faloise, in which his subject was not primarily the country house but the owner and his family at
leisure on its grounds. The book is a dossier-style study of this group of photographs, which includes thirteen known prints from nine different negatives.
James Ganz locates
the photographs at a key moment in Baldus's career and during one of the most eventful decades in the history of French photography, showing that they stand at a crossroad between
the English "conversation piece" and the birth of Impressionist portraiture in the early paintings of Monet and Bazille. Each of the images is scrutinised for the information that it presents
and withholds, including readings of the sitters' body language for clues to their identities and relationships, and enlarged photographic details help the reader understand Baldus's
complex and playful images. An appendix fully documents all of the known prints in both public and private collections.
Edouard Baldus at the Chateau de La Faloise grows
out of an exhibition shown at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in the fall of 2003, which was the first to reassemble the photographic series. The Clark Art Institute owns three
of the prints, making it the largest repository of works from this project.
