A major new study of the portraiture of one of the most important artists of the nineteenth century
Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) may be best known for his landscapes, but he also painted some 160 portraits throughout his exceptional career. This major work establishes portraiture as an essential practice for Cezanne, from his earliest self-portraits in the 1860s; to his famous depictions of figures including his wife Hortense Fiquet, the writer Emile Zola, and the art dealer Ambrose Vollard; and concluding with a poignant series of portraits of his gardener Vallier, made shortly before Cezanne's death.
Featured essays by leading experts explore the special pictorial and thematic characteristics of Cezanne's portraits. The authors address the artist's creation of complementary pairs and multiple versions of the same subject, as well as the role of self-portraiture for Cezanne. They investigate the chronological evolution of his portrait work, with an examination of the changes that occurred within his artistic style and method, and in his understanding of resemblance and identity. They also consider the extent to which particular sitters influenced the characteristics and development of Cezanne's practice.
Beautifully illustrated with works of art drawn from public and private collections around the world, Cezanne Portraits presents an astonishingly broad range of images that reveal the most personal and human qualities of this remarkable artist.

Описание: A celebration of the stunning collection of artworks donated in honor of the creation of The Menil Drawing Institute
Featuring outstanding 20th-century drawings promised or bequeathed to the Menil Collection for the opening of the Menil Drawing Institute, this elegant volume is a testament to the growing significance of drawings as stand-alone artworks over the past century. The drawings come from the private collections of well-known connoisseurs Janie C. Lee, Louisa Stude Sarofim, and David Whitney, and include works by artists such as Bruce Nauman, Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Eva Hesse, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Jackson Pollock. Its chief curator Edouard Kopp profiles the Drawing Institute's nature and scope, and noted scholars John Elderfield and Richard Shiff discuss historical aspects of drawing, while Terry Winters muses from an artist's viewpoint.

The present volume includes the vast majority of significant essays on Bridget Riley written since 1999. This was a particularly fruitful period in the reception of her work, as the discourse broadened and her reputation as one of the most important painters of her generation solidified. The essays range from biographical and career overviews to detailed analysis of specific aspects or themes that occur throughout Riley's career. The selection reflects a rich body of work, which sustains the interest of important authors, as evidenced by multiple pieces by ric de Chassey, Lynne Cooke, Robert Kudielka, Paul Moorhouse and Richard Shiff. Together, this volume of essays tells the story of an artist whose art has continuously evolved over nearly six decades. Most of the critical texts have been written in close consultation with the artist, the result of long conversations, sudio visits and archive access. Largely commissioned on the occasion of particular exhibitions, these essays track and trace Riley's focus and influences at different moments in time. Each essay builds upon the next, with more recent authors clearly responding and referencing earlier discourse. The result is a collection of great breadth and cohesion. An important resource, About Bridget Riley represents a monumental body of research and analysis by some of the most important art historians of today. It also offers the opportunity for the reader and the viewer to approach Riley from a plethora of perspectives to form their own view, much reflecting Riley's own particular approach to art history. As John Elderfield puts it: 'Effectively, Riley makes a pact with the viewer, through the medium of the painting, that they will collaborate in eliciting from a particular painting a particular sort of mobile visual array. And, when the viewer stops looking at the painting, it will therefore be as if leaving something that continues to go on.'

The first comprehensive monograph on the art of Joe Zucker, this career-spanning survey deals with all the artist's various bodies of work, from his grid paintings of the 1960s to his latest work, including the monumental 1000 Brushstrokes (2015-2016). Zucker's art is rooted in a conceptual framework where tools, materials, processes, procedures, content, and subject matter are all interrelated.
Zucker has flown under the radar of larger public awareness due to the frequent transformations in his art from one style to another, and thus his work has not been easily characterized and identified. Nevertheless, he has forged a powerful artistic persona as a process artist with a certain pop inflection, who not only grapples with formal and theoretical concerns but also explores themes of history, culture, and Americana. Working with materials ranging from cotton balls, sash cord, peg boards and squeegees to acrylic and rhoplex, and exploring such themes as the grid, the history of cotton, ancient civilizations, an assortment of "dubious characters," paintings that paint themselves, as well as meditations on the studio, Zucker merges materials, process, and content--abstract and otherwise--to produce compelling works of extraordinary inventiveness, irony, and passion.
