A little history of the Big Apple, in pictures This Tiny Folio uses the extensive and extraordinary collections of the Museum of the City of New York to tell the story of the Empire City, from its beginnings as small Dutch trading post to its nineteenth-century flourishing as a Gilded Age metropolis and immigrant melting pot, to its crisis of the 1970s, to its reemergence as a global capital of finance and the arts. The artifacts and images illustrated herein range from a chair that belonged to Sarah Rapelje (the first European child born in New Netherland, and the seventh-great grandmother of Humphrey Bogart) to photographs by Berenice Abbott. In a new feature for the Tiny Folio series, fifty of the illustrations are accompanied by extended narrative captions that draw out their historical significance.
Full-page reproductions of paintings spanning Monet's career and styles, from one of the largest Monet collections outside France
The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, boasts one of the largest collections of the celebrated impressionist artist Claude Monet's work outside France. This book reproduces all 35 oil paintings by Monet in the MFA's permanent collection, representing nearly the full span of Monet's long career. An introductory essay presents a brief introduction to his acclaim in Boston during his lifetime, and entries for the thirty-five paintings provide an overview of his life and work.
Early plein-air compositions from the 1870s, as well as Grand Canal, Venice (1908), a later example inspired by his travels abroad, mark his enduring fascination with watery surfaces, utilizing vivid color and varied brushwork to dazzling effect. A grouping of works related to his life-long appreciation for Japanese art and culture is anchored by La Japonaise (Camille Monet in Japanese Costume) (1876), a full-length portrayal of his wife Camille in a lavishly embroidered kimono. His 1875 composition, Meadow with Poplars, inspires another section, as its depiction of poppies, poplar trees and grainstacks foreshadows the recurrence of these themes in his painting throughout the decades to follow. Claude Monet (1840-1926) trained with the plein-air painter Eug ne Boudin among others, continuing his studies from 1859 onward in Paris, where he met Pissarro, Bazille, Sisley and Renoir. At their first exhibition in Paris in 1874, Monet's painting Impression, soleil levant prompted critics to mockingly describe him as an impressionist.

The lineage of the "superflat" Murakami's vision of the Japanese aesthetic
Takashi Murakami's irreverent, pop culture-infused art has made him one of the most recognized Japanese artists today. His bright, contemporary boisterousness, however, belies his deep scholarship and engagement with traditional Japanese art. Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics presents key examples of Murakami's work alongside a rich selection of Japanese masterpieces spanning several centuries and arranged here according to concepts laid out by his mentor and foil, leading Japanese art historian Nobuo Tsuji. These include works by Kawanabe Kyosai, Soga Shohaku, Kano Eino, Ito Jakuchu and Hishikawa Moronobu. Beautifully illustrated with Tsuji's selections from the peerless Japanese art collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as some of the artist's best-known works of painting and sculpture, the combination of old and new in this groundbreaking volume enriches our understanding of each, and ultimately shows us how contemporary art can be seen as part of a continuum or lineage.
Takashi Murakami (born 1962) is an internationally acclaimed artist and the founder and president of Kaikai Kiki, an art production and management company based in Tokyo with a studio in New York City. He was the first person to earn a PhD in Nihonga--a form of Japanese paintings created using traditional materials and techniques--at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. Over the last two decades, he has presented numerous exhibitions around the world, from Versailles to Qatar. His first major solo exhibition at a US museum was held in 2001 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, titled Takashi Murakami: Made in Japan. Murakami is well known for his corporate branding projects with Louis Vuitton, VANS, shu uemura, Issey Miyake, Lucien Pellat-Finet, Roppongi Hills and ComplexCon, as well as collaborations with musicians such as Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. In 2008, he was selected as one of TIME magazine's "100 Most Influential People." More recently, he has been working on film and animation productions, releasing his first live-action film, Jellyfish Eyes, in 2013 and an animated television series, 6HP (Six Hearts Princess), in 2017.
