Madrid modernista: guía de arquitectura
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
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.

L'Art nouveau en France
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
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.

Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
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

Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910
Dates:29.6.2014-28.9.2014
Treasures of Korea presents more than 150 works from the time of the world's longest-ruling Confucian dynasty, lasting more than 500 years. On display are many Korean national treasures that have never before been shown in the United States. This comprehensive survey is organized around five key themes that together illuminate a period that continues to influence modern manners, norms and social attitudes: the role of the king and his royal court and their taste for simplicity, expressed in porcelain objects; the strict hierarchies that defined class and gender; the production of metal and ceramic ritual implements used in ancestral worship; various religions practiced during this time, and the late influence of western civilizations.

L'épopée lorraine - l'Art nouveau
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
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.

Ornament and the Grotesque - Fantastical Decoration from Antiquity to Art Nouveau
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
The discovery of Nero's Domus Aurea in Rome at the end of the 15th century revealed an unfamiliar, playful style of classical ornament that captured the imagination of Renaissance artists. For the first explorers it was like entering a series of caves or 'grottoes', which is why they called the style of the painting on the walls and ceilings 'grotesque'. The first book to reveal this vast treasury, Ornament and the Grotesque brings the story up to the late 19th century and shows how it led eventually to Art Nouveau. Far removed from the formal language of traditional classical ornament, what they saw was something essentially decorative and only semi-serious: parodies of classical mythology, fantastic hybrid monsters, men hatching out of eggs, images of perverse eroticism, impossible architectural visions, giant butterflies, mischievous putti, monkeys, sphinxes and nightmare insects - a repertoire of uninhibited imagination where nothing was taboo. Inspired by this discovery, Italian artists, including Perugino, Signorelli and Mantegna, immediately started to copy the style. Raphael's decoration of the Vatican Logge in the early 16th century made the grotesque into a Europe-wide fashion, and it soon became an integral decorative feature of the most lavish residences, incorporating ceramics, textiles and tapestries. 32.50 x 26.80 cm Hardback 308pp 246 Illustrations, 242 in colour First published 2008

Pre-Raphaelite Drawing
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
The most comprehensive survey to date of the drawings, watercolours, prints and designs of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, providing a fresh and intimate picture of the most popular and enduring group in the history of British art The book is illustrated with the most important Pre-Raphaelite drawings from public and private collections around the UK, including striking works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Edward Burne-Jones that have never before been exhibited or reproduced. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of radical young artists who banded together in London in 1848, revolutionized British art. This book explores the vital role played by drawing and design, in all its variety, in the work of the Brotherhood and their associates. Alongside studies for paintings of religious, literary and medieval subjects are the group’s portraits, self-portraits and caricatures, often exchanged as gifts; meticulous depictions of nature by John Ruskin and his followers; captivating drawings of the iconic Pre-Raphaelite models Lizzie Siddal and Jane Morris; and original designs for stained glass, textiles and ceramics. Art historian Colin Cruise explores the emergence of the Brotherhood’s graphic style, their theories of naturalism, their radical promotion of new subjects, and their highly original use of watercolour as a drawing medium. He also demonstrates the impact that Pre-Raphaelite drawing had upon turn-of-the-century British art movements such as Aestheticism, Symbolism and Art Nouveau, and explores the role of drawing in the work of leading Arts and Crafts designers such as William Morris, William De Morgan and Florence Camm. 28.00 x 24.00 cm Paperback with flaps 248pp With 313 illustrations First published 2012

20th Century Ceramics
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
Many of the surveys to date have discussed factories or potters or artists as if they were completely disassociated from the times in which they were living, and as if they were completely unaware of their contemporaries. Rather than producing a survey in which only a shooting gallery of iconic pots or famous artists are presented I have tried to reveal the contexts in which these ceramics were made and why they were made.' Anyone concerned with art and creativity in the modern era, including schools, art colleges and collectors, will be grateful for this introduction to one of the most popular and challenging art forms of our time. The profusely illustrated book charts the development of ceramics in the modern age, from Art Nouveau, Art Deco, the Bauhaus and Futurism, through Abstract Expressionism, Pop and Performance, to Land Art and Installation Art. There are clear introductions to pioneering techniques, glazes and approaches, in context and in practice, from Orientalism and colour theory to Modernism, Postmodernism and the profuse diversity of the end of the twentieth century. A practising potter and writer of international note, Edmund de Waal examines the increasing cross-fertilization between ceramics and other disciplnes, such as painting, sculpture and architecture, and provides detailed and compelling analysis of individual pieces in context. 21.00 x 15.00 cm Paperback 224pp 178 Illustrations, 77 in colour First published 2003

Jewelry from Nature
Dates:1.1.2050-1.1.2999
With more than 350 illustrations, Jewelry from Nature is a fresh, sensitive look at natural materials magically transformed by masters of fine jewelry. The vast range of materials is impressive: coral, amber, horn, ivory, shells, pearls, wood, tortoiseshell, and such exotica as feathers, shagreen and bog oak – with origins from all over Europe, Asia, North and South America, Africa and the Far East. Their beauty often belies their age – amber (65 million years old) and mammoth ivory (10,000 years old). Here, lavishly displayed, are superb works made by the world’s finest jewelers of the past two hundred years. Every major jeweler has created pieces of exceptional beauty, importance and style: Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, JAR, Cartier (their 
Art Deco coral bangles are icons of the period), Tiffany, Boivin, Verdura (whose seashell brooches studded with fine stones have long been collectors’ items), David Webb, Schlumberger, Lalique (whose name enbodies the best in Art Nouveau), Suzanne Belperron and Hermès. Scores of modern designers are also featured (Andrew Grima, John Donald, Noma Copley) as well as artists today such as Patricia Von Musulin, Ted Muehling and Liv Blåvarp, whose exquisite objects show great respect for natural materials. Including masses of information, each chapter explores the inspiration of a different material, with special profiles on designers, themes, or style icons such as Princess Grace of Monaco, Chanel and the Duchess of Windsor. 25.00 x 22.00 cm Hardback 224pp With over 350 colour illustrations First published 2010
