Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte 1910-1932
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
For designers, decorators or anyone simply in search of visual inspiration, this book is a goldmine and a fitting tribute to a period of astonishing creativity. A wealth of reproductions, many in colour, are supplemented by an exhaustive catalogue and artist biographies, as well as contemporary photographs of the textiles’ uses in fashion and interior decoration. The textile patterns and prints of the Wiener Werkstätte were among the most popular and successful designs of the early twentieth century, reflecting both the tastes of Viennese high society and the general trend towards artistic abstraction. Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte 1910–32 presents selections from the original gouache drawings, pattern books and about 20,000 samples now in the collection of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna – a truly remarkable archive of most of the over 1,800 recorded fabric designs. These range from the early naturalistic motifs of Art Nouveau to the later geometric designs associated with Art Deco. Angela Völker’s text gives accounts of a range of topics, including the designs by Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffmann for Backhausen and Söhne before the foundation of the textile department in about 1910, methods of production, sales policy, customers and end use. 28.00 x 20.70 cm Paperback with flaps 256pp 417 Illustrations, 306 in colour First published 2004

Scottish Art
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
What makes Scottish art Scottish? The lasting influence of Celtic masterpieces recur throughout the centuries, not least in the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Scottish Art Nouveau, but at a deeper level an idea of Scottish art emerges in depictions of its dramatic landscape, its wars and conflicts, hardships, the heroes of Scottish history, the great figures of literature and philosophy, and its connection with France, from medieval times almost to the present. All these factors form the character of Scottish art which is rich at the same time in distinctive personalities and individual genius, from Henry Raeburn and Allan Ramsay, the two great portraitists of the Scottish enlightenment, to artists working today like pioneering pop artist Eduardo Paolozzi and novelist and illustrator Alasdair Gray. 21.00 x 15.00 cm Paperback 224pp 183 Illustrations, 55 in colour First published 2000

Stained Glass - Masterpieces of the Modern Era
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
The twentieth century, with its revolution in architectural methods and materials, opened up new possibilities for stained glass. During the last thirty years, a great many projects have been created in stained glass all over the world, in both new buildings and historical churches and institutions. Studies of this phenomenon have been rare until now, and this book is a pioneer in the survey of this fascinating field. From the magnificent Art Nouveau ceilings of Parisian department stores, to exuberant designs from the Islamic world, and further still to the temples and palaces of India, Indonesia and Japan, stained glass becomes a medium by which the traditional and the avant-garde come together to create sumptuous decoration. Here too are striking designs by modern artists like Marc Chagall and Fernand Léger, and glass put to skilful and subtle use by master architects such as Antoni Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright. 31.50 x 27.00 cm Hardback 216pp 247 Illustrations, 246 in colour First published 2007

Charles Rennie Mackintosh
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s finest work dates from about a dozen intensively creative years around 1900. His buildings in Glasgow, and especially his craggy masterpiece the Glasgow School of Art, are more complex and playful than anything in Britain at that time. His interiors, many of them designed in collaboration with his wife, Margaret Macdonald, are both spare and sensuous, creating a world of heightened aesthetic sensibility. Finally, during the 1920s, he painted a series of watercolours which are as original as anything he had done before. Since his death, Mackintosh has been lauded as a pioneer of the Modern Movement and as a master of Art Nouveau. This book, with illustrations that include specially prepared plans and sections, takes a clear-eyed view of Mackintosh and his achievement, revealing a designer of extraordinary sophistication and inventiveness. 20.90 x 14.80 cm Paperback 216pp 167 Illustrations, 26 in colour First published 1995

L'épopée lorraine - l'Art nouveau
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
La France traumatisée par la défaite de 1870, pleure ses provinces arrachées à la mère patrie. On imagine difficilement aujourd’hui, à l’heure de l’Europe sans frontières et de l’affirmation quotidienne de l’amitié entre les peuples de part et d’autre du Rhin, quel drame humain considérable constitua l’annexion de l’Alsace et de la Moselle pour les populations. Les hasards de l’histoire vont transformer la ville de Nancy pendant plus de quarante ans en un inexpugnable bastion intellectuel. Nancy devient la dynamique capitale de l’Est de la France. Un vent nouveau souffle sur la cité lorraine et ses habitants : le commerce est florissant, les industries se développent, les arts et les spectacles connaissent un engouement inattendu. Au cœur de cet essor, les grands maîtres de l ‘Art Nouveau, soutenus par des mécènes et des collectionneurs éclairés, font de Nancy un terrain d’idées et de créations unique en Europe. Les noms de Gallé, Daum, Majorelle, Prouvé, tous s’entourent d’une myriade d’artisans : verriers, ébénistes, forgerons… Ensemble, ils écriront la Grande épopée Lorraine, celle de l’Ecole de Nancy. Ce livre illustré de photos rares, enrichi de nombreux témoignages et de documents d’archives, raconte la formidable aventure humaine de l’Art nouveau à Nancy et en Lorraine.

Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
The phenomenal draftsman Gustav Klimt occupies a unique place in modern art. His extant œuvre comprises some 250 paintings and more than 4,000 works on paper. The study of the human figure—above all female—lies at the heart of the artist's activity as a draftsman, which he practiced assiduously.Through his study of the poses and gestures of his models, Klimt repeatedly examined the essence of particular psychological and existential states of being. In his constant quest for the ideal solution, Klimt often went beyond the preparation of his paintings, which, particularly after 1900, were dominated by the themes of Eros, Love, Life, and Death. His art cannot be understood without carefully considering the drawings, which are characterized by an unsurpassed mastery of line, in all the phases of his artistic development—from Historicism, through Stilkunst around 1900, the Golden Period, and up to his freer late work. This lavishly illustrated publication accompanies the exhibition organized by the Albertina Museum in Vienna (March 13 to June 10, 2012) and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles (July 3 to September 23, 2012) to mark the 150th anniversary of Gustav Klimt's birth. In both venues, the emphasis will be placed on showing not only the variety of his draftsmanship, but also the centrality of drawing to Klimt's artistic enterprise. Most of the works on display will come from the Albertina's outstanding collection, one of the most extensive and representative groups of Klimt drawings in the world, complemented by select Austrian and international loans. Marian Bisanz-Prakken is curator at the Albertina Museum, Vienna, and the reigning expert on Klimt drawings. She has published many books and articles on the subject. For sale in North America only

L'Art nouveau en France
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
L'Art Nouveau français est né au début des années 1890, à Nancy et à Paris, de la réunion de peintres, de sculpteurs, d'architectes, d'artisans et d'industriels, sous les bannières de L'Art dans tout et de L'Art pour tous. Cette nouvelle forme d'art rassembla des hommes aussi différents qu'Emile Gallé, Eugène Grasset, Hector Guimard ou Victor Prouvé. Les formes des objets se mirent à ressembler à la vie. De la rêverie sur l'eau naquirent des tableaux, des céramiques, des œuvres de verre. La plante fournit des modèles de lampes, de cheminées, de tables ou de lits. Du corps de la femme on fit des coffrets à bijoux, des bibliothèques ou des videpoches. L'homme au travail devint l'image du bonheur. De ce monde perdu ce livre exhume quelques-uns des plus beaux chefs-d'œuvre, et les situe dans l'histoire du tout début du XXe siècle.

Madrid modernista: guía de arquitectura
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Se agrupan y presentan los edificios madrileños que recibieron la influencia de las distintas corrientes del modernismo internacional. Esta guía de arquitectura pretende cubrir un vacío existente en el panorama editorial respecto al estudio e inventario de la arquitectura modernista. Para ello, se agrupan y presentan los edificios madrileños que de una forma u otra recibieron, desde patrones eclécticos, la influencia de las distintas corrientes del modernismo internacional. Se han seleccionado los edificios mas destacados de Madrid en los que se aprecian aspectos decorativos modernistas, desde grandes creaciones del modernismo madrileño hasta simples ejemplos de detalles ornamentales. Reflejando el sentido integrador de todas las artes decorativas que caracterizan el modernismo, se mencionan no sólo los arquitectos, primeros responsables de los proyectos y del diseño de muchos elementos decorativos, sino también los diferentes artistas que colaboraron con ellos: rejeros vidrieros, ceramistas, escultores y pintores. El libro divide en tres etapas la evolución del modernismo madrileño. Una fase preliminar, que se inicia en torno a 1900 con la tímida aparición del art nouveau en realizaciones eclécticas y finaliza con las primeras creaciones donde el estilo se muestra con absoluta claridad; un segundo periodo de amplia difusión, que arranca en 1904 y concluye con el surgimiento del regionalismo; y una época tardía, alrededor de 1920, en la cual el modernismo cede ante diversas tendencias arquitectónicas que, como el art déco, hunden sus raíces en el propio fenómeno modernista.

Hector Guimard, fer de lance de l'Art nouveau
Dates:04/12/2014-04/12/2014

Cet architecte fut une des figures emblématiques de l’Art Nouveau en France. Célèbre pour ses entrées de métro à Paris, ses immeubles et maisons ont marqué l’histoire de l’architecture des années 1900. Guimard, tout en s’inspirant de la nature par l’utilisation de motifs végétaux et marins, se passionna aussi d’innovations techniques en mélangeant des matériaux nobles et bons marchés. Il adopta aussi un parti de composition asymétrique anticlassique. Par toutes ses recherches et réalisations, il fut un des précurseurs du Mouvement Moderne.

Antoni Gaudi, Architecte moderniste et singulier
Dates:05/02/2015-05/02/2015

Architecte Catalan de la fin du XIXème siècle, Antoni Gaudi créa des édifices de formes inhabituelles quant à leur structure, leur façade ou leur plan intérieur. Il conçut ses bâtiments dans les moindres détails, intégrant à l’architecture toute une série d’ouvrages artisanaux dont il maîtrisait lui-même les techniques à la perfection, comme la céramique, la verrerie, la ferronnerie ou la charpente. Ses constructions constituent une contribution créative exceptionnelle au développement de l’architecture moderne et des techniques de construction. Sept de ses œuvres sont classées au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité par l’UNESCO.
