After your many books on Jewish history in the

Muslim lands, and began to collect material with the

with M Artin the sources?
Gilbert I was surprised to realize the extent to which, over long
periods of time, despite many differences and oppression,
Jews and Muslims lived in harmony together.

Does the story you uncover provide lessons for

the future?
All history has lessons both for the future—and indeed
for today—nowhere more so than in this area which has
become increasingly controversial and confrontational.

How is the Biblical story of the sons of Abraham

relevant to your account?
Jews and Muslims have a common spiritual and historic
ancestry; they are both Semites who see themselves as
descendants of Abraham (Ibrahim), who destroyed the
idols in his father’s house and worshipped a single Deity.

society and the birth of the so-called permissive society Twentieth-Century Britain.

A series of spectacular scandals profoundly disturbed London life

during the 1950s in ways that had major national consequences.
High and low society collided in a city of social and sexual extremes.
Patrician men-about-town, young independent women, go-ahead
entrepreneurs, Westminster politicians, queer men, and West Indian
newcomers played a conspicuous part in dramatic encounters that
signaled a new phase of post-Victorian sexual morality.
These dramas of pleasure and danger occurred not only in the glam-
orous and shady entertainment spaces of the West End but also in
Whitehall, as well as the twilight zones of the inner city. Frank Mort
uncovers the ways in which they transformed national culture. Soho
and Notting Hill became beacons for anxieties over the changing
character of sex in the city and the cultural impact of decolonization.
The “old” European migrants and the “new” Caribbean presence
were significant factors in the readjustment of urban sexual mores.
Mort’s arresting history of sex and politics in London illustrates a key
moment in the making of modern British society.

What drew you to Antony and Cleopatra?
It’s obviously an exciting story about two of the most
famous characters from history. People have heard
of Antony and Cleopatra, and know them as great
lovers, [but] often have only a sketchy idea of the true
story—especially the military side. It also seemed
logical to continue the Shakespearean theme that began
with Caesar.

How has your perspective on Cleopatra

changed since Caesar?
Though Antony and Cleopatra inevitably involves some
Jo Nixon

episodes from Caesar’s life—the affair with Cleopatra,

the early career of Antony, etc.—the focus is very
A conversAtion different. The narrative is always from the point of view
with A driAn of Antony or Cleopatra, so the same events take on a
Goldsworthy different cast. For instance, if you look at Cleopatra’s
earlier life, and the savage infighting amongst the
Ptolemies, you realize just how precarious her position
was when she met Caesar.

What was most surprising about your research?

Cleopatra has glamour, and still has far more books
devoted to her than Antony. Yet Antony, when he for
a while dominated the Roman Republic, wielded far
more power than Cleopatra could ever hope to possess,
because it was Rome that dominated the world. So we
need to place her in context and not let our admiration
for such a strong-willed woman in an era dominated
by men hide the fact that her position was always
highly vulnerable. We also have to resist the equally
strong lure of truly ancient Egypt. Cleopatra’s family
were Macedonians; her first language and that of her
education was Greek. It is easy to forget that she is
actually closer to us in time than she was to the builders
of the great pyramids.

Antony is equally surprising. He cultivated an image

as a bluff, swaggering soldier, and on the whole this is
how people characterise him. Yet a lot of people readily
admire Antony not because of who he was, but because
of their distaste for the scheming Octavian. Once you
look closely at Antony, the truth is fascinating . . .

new book, bound to provoke controversy, Peter Krentz argues that
Herodotus was right after all.
Beginning his analysis with the Athenians’ first formal contact with
the Persians in 507 BCE, Krentz weaves together ancient evidence
with travelers’ descriptions, archaeological discoveries, geological
surveys, and the experiences of modern reenactors and soldiers to
tell his story.
Krentz argues that before Marathon the Athenian army fought in
a much less organized way than the standard view of the hoplite
phalanx suggests: as an irregularly armed mob rather than a disci-
plined formation of identically equipped infantry. At Marathon the
Athenians equipped all their fighters, including archers and horse-
men, as hoplites for the first time. Because their equipment weighed
only half as much as is usually thought, the Athenians and their
Plataean allies could charge almost a mile at a run, as Herodotus says
they did. Krentz improves on this account in Herodotus by showing
why the Athenians wanted to do such a risky thing.

FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy were, to my
mind, great emperors. They truly saved and strengthened
the free and democratic world, for all their faults and
peccadilloes. The worst were Richard Nixon—who used
treason to win the presidency, and extraordinary tactics
to hang on to it—and George W. Bush, who abdicated
presidential power to his vice president. And in between

Albemarle County, Virginia, Shadwell was at the time considered
“the frontier.” However, Kern demonstrates that Shadwell was no
crude log cabin; it was, in fact, a well-appointed gentry house full of
fashionable goods, located at the center of a substantial plantation.
Kern’s scholarship offers new views of the family’s role in settling
Virginia as well as new perspectives on Thomas Jefferson himself. By
examining a variety of sources, including account books, diaries, and
letters, Kern recreates in rich detail the daily lives of the Jeffersons
at Shadwell—from Jane Jefferson’s cultivation of a learned and cul-
tured household to Peter Jefferson’s extensive business network and
oversight of a thriving plantation.
Shadwell was Thomas Jefferson’s patrimony, but Kern asserts that his
real legacy there came from his parents, who cultivated the strong
social connections that would later open doors for their children.
At Shadwell, Jefferson learned the importance of fostering relation-
ships with slaves, laborers, and powerful office holders, as well as the
hierarchical structure of large plantations, which he later applied at
Monticello. The story of Shadwell affects how we interpret much of
what we know about Thomas Jefferson today, and Kern’s fascinating
book is sure to become the standard work on Jefferson’s early years.

Turkey, Islam, Nationalism, and Modernity reveals the historical

dynamics propelling two centuries of Ottoman and Turkish his-
tory. As mounting threats to imperial survival necessitated dynamic
responses, ethnolinguistic and religious identities inspired alterna-
tive strategies for engaging with modernity. A radical, secularizing
current of change competed with a conservative, Islamically com-
mitted current. Crises sharpened the differentiation of the two
currents, forcing choices between them.
The radical current began with the formation of reformist govern-
mental elites and expanded with the advent of “print capitalism,”
symbolized by the privately owned, Ottoman-language newspapers.
The radicals engineered the 1908 Young Turk revolution, ruled
empire and republic until 1950, made secularism a lasting “belief
system,” and still retain powerful positions.
The conservative current gained impetus from three history-making
Islamic renewal movements, those of Mevlana Halid, Said Nursi,
and Fethullah Gülen. Powerful under the empire, Islamic conserva-
tives did not regain control of government until the 1980s. By then
they, too, had their own influential media.
Findley’s reassessment of political, economic, social, and cultural
history reveals the dialectical interaction between radical and conser-
vative currents of change, which alternately clashed and converged
to shape late Ottoman and republican Turkish history.

Tens of millions of people today are living part of their life in a vir-
tual world. In places like World of Warcraft, Second Life, and Free
Realms, people are making friends, building communities, creating
art, and making real money. Business is booming on the virtual fron-
tier, as billions of dollars are paid in exchange for pixels on screens.
But sometimes things go wrong. Virtual criminals defraud online
communities in pursuit of real-world profits. People feel cheated
when their avatars lose virtual property to wrongdoers. Increasingly,
they turn to legal systems for solutions. But when your avatar has
been robbed, what law is there to assist you?
In Virtual Justice, Greg Lastowka illustrates the real legal dilemmas
posed by virtual worlds. Presenting the most recent lawsuits and con-
troversies, he explains how governments are responding to the chaos
on the cyberspace frontier. After an engaging overview of the history
and business models of today’s virtual worlds, he explores how laws
of property, jurisdiction, crime, and copyright are being adapted to
pave the path of virtual law.
Virtual worlds are becoming more important to society with each
passing year. This pioneering study will be an invaluable guide to
scholars of online communities for years to come.

tance of faith, and a brilliant analyst of the elegantly mathematical
workings of nature yet bungling and insensitive with his own family.
Tackling Galileo as astronomer, engineer, and author, David Wootton
places him at the center of Renaissance culture. He traces Galileo
through his early rebellious years; the beginnings of his scientific
career constructing a “new physics”; his move to Florence seeking
money, status, and greater freedom to attack intellectual orthodox-
ies; his trial for heresy and narrow escape from torture; and his house
arrest and physical (though not intellectual) decline. Wootton reveals
much that is new—from Galileo’s premature Copernicanism to a
previously unrecognized illegitimate daughter—and, controversially,
rejects the long-established orthodoxy which holds that Galileo was
a good Catholic.
Absolutely central to Galileo’s significance—and to science more
broadly—is the telescope, the potential of which Galileo was the
first to grasp. Wootton makes clear that it totally revolutionized
and galvanized scientific endeavor to discover new and previously
unimagined facts. Drawing extensively on Galileo’s voluminous let-
ters, many of which were self-censored and sly, this is an original,
arresting, and highly readable biography of a difficult, remarkable
Renaissance genius.

In this thrilling new book, Benjamin L. Carp tells the full story of

mined group shook the foundations of a mighty empire, and what
this has meant for Americans since. As he reveals many little-known
historical facts and considers the Tea Party’s uncertain legacy, he
presents a compelling and expansive history of an iconic event in
America’s tempestuous past.

suggests. Wading without hesitation into some of the most con-
tentious issues of our times, she investigates battles over a wide
range of topics that have fractured school and university com-
munities—homosexuality-themed children’s books, research on
race-based intelligence, the teaching of evolution, the regulation of
hate speech, and more—and with her usual evenhanded approach
offers insights supported by theory and by practical expertise.
Two key questions arise: What ideas should schools and universities
teach? And what rights do teachers and students have to disagree
with those ideas? The answers are not the same for K–12 schools as
they are for public universities. But far from drawing a bright line
between them, DelFattore suggests that we must consider public
education as a whole to determine how—and how successfully—it
deals with conflicting views.
When expert opinion clashes with popular belief, which should pre-
vail? How much independence should K–12 teachers have? How
do we foster the cutting-edge research that makes America a world
leader in higher education? What are the free-speech rights of stu-
dents? This uniquely accessible and balanced discussion deserves
the full attention of everyone concerned with academic goals and
agendas in our schools.

following the great voyages of Captain Cook. Unlike conventional
accounts that emphasize confrontation and the destruction of
indigenous cultures, Islanders reveals there was gain as well as loss,
survival as well as suffering, and invention as well as exploitation.
Empowered by imaginative research in obscure archives and collec-
tions, Thomas rediscovers a rich and surprising history of encounters,
not only between Islanders and Europeans, but among Islanders,
brought together in new ways by explorers, missionaries, and col-
onists. He tells the story of the making of empire, not through an
impersonal survey, but through vivid stories of the lives of men
and women—some visionary, some vicious, and some just eccen-
tric—and through sensuous evocation of seascapes and landscapes of
the Pacific. A fascinating re-creation of an Oceanic world, Islanders
offers a new paradigm, not only for histories of the Pacific, but for
understandings of cultural contact everywhere.

Feiner’s book is the first that offers a full, human portrait of this fas-

an intellectual pioneer, shrewd, traditionally Jewish, yet thoroughly
conversant with the world around him—providing a vivid sense
of Mendelssohn’s daily life as well as of his philosophical endeav-

Mendelssohn as father and husband, as a friend (Mendelssohn’s long-
standing friendship with the German dramatist Gotthold Ephraim
Lessing was seen as a model for Jews and non-Jews worldwide), as
a tireless advocate for his people, and as an equally indefatigable
spokesman for the paramount importance of intellectual  indepen-

ten-year-old daughter Louisa May, future author of Little Women,
was among the members) and an Englishman called Charles Lane,
under the watchful gaze of Emerson, Thoreau, and other New

Alcott and Lane developed their own version of the doctrine known
as Transcendentalism, hoping to transform society and redeem the
environment through a strict regime of veganism and celibacy. But
physical suffering and emotional conflict—particularly between
Lane and Alcott’s wife, Abigail—made the community unsustainable.
Drawing on the letters and diaries of those involved, Richard Francis

of humankind, eminent biologist Christian de Duve of late has
also pondered deeply the future of life on this planet. He speaks to
readers with or without a scientific background, offering new per-
spectives on the threat posed by humanity’s immense biological
success and on the resources human beings have for altering their
current destructive path.
Focusing on the process of natural selection, de Duve explores the
inordinate and now dangerous rise of humankind. His explanation
for this self-defeating success lies in the process of natural selection,
which favors traits that are immediately useful, regardless of later con-
sequences. Thus, the human genome determines such properties as
tribal and group cohesion and collaboration and often fierce and
irrational competition with and hostility toward other groups’ attri-
butes that were once useful but now often ruinously dysfunctional.
Christian de Duve suggests that these traits, imprinted into human
nature by natural selection, may have been recognized by the writers
of Genesis, thus inspiring the myth of original sin. Is there redemp-
tion for genetic original sin? In a brilliant and original conclusion,
the author argues that, unique in the living world, humankind is
endowed with the ability to deliberately oppose natural selection.
Human beings have the capacity to devise measures that, while con-
trary to local or personal interests, can bring forth a safer world.

regime headed by the aging President Mubarak.
In this immensely readable and thoroughly researched book, Tarek
Osman explores what has happened to the biggest Arab nation since
President Nasser took control of the country in 1954. He examines
Egypt’s central role in the development of the two crucial movements
of the period, Arab nationalism and radical Islam; the increasingly
contentious relationship between Muslims and Christians; and
perhaps most important of all, the rift between the cosmopolitan
elite and the mass of the undereducated and underemployed popu-
lation, more than half of whom are aged under thirty. This is an
essential guide to one of the Middle East’s most important but least

There is no shortage of books about digital media, but what has been
missing is a strategic take on how business owners can utilize the
most powerful asset of the digital age: customer networks. Whether
shoppers, business clients, charitable donors, or election voters,
today’s customers are harnessing digital tools to connect to, com-
municate with, and contribute to businesses.
In The Network Is Your Customer, digital strategy expert David Rogers
shows business owners and company leaders how to think strategi-
cally about customer networks and harness their power to create
new opportunities for any organization. By identifying the five core
behaviors of networked customers—accessing, engaging, customiz-

that any organization can use to create new value.
These strategies can be used not just for communications and social
networking but to drive sales, enhance innovation, reduce costs, gain
customer insight, and build breakthrough products and services that
rewrite existing business categories.
With clear analysis and practical frameworks, Rogers shows how any
organization can apply the five strategies to meet its own key busi-

business, consumer, and nonprofit categories. And he offers a clear
process for planning and implementing a customer network strategy.

military structure that had developed during World War II. After the
conflict ended, the nation did not abandon its wartime economy but
rather the opposite. Military spending has steadily increased, giving
rise to one of the key ideas that continues to shape our country’s
political landscape.
In this book, published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of
Eisenhower’s farewell address, journalist James Ledbetter shows
how the government, military contractors, and the nation’s overall
economy have become inseparable. Some of the effects are benefi-
cial, such as cell phones, GPS systems, the Internet, and the Hubble
Space Telescope, all of which emerged from technologies first devel-
oped for the military. But the military-industrial complex has also
provoked agonizing questions. Does our massive military establish-
ment—bigger than those of the next ten largest combined—really
make us safer? How much of our perception of security threats
is driven by the profit-making motives of military contractors?
To what extent is our foreign policy influenced by contractors’
financial interests?
Ledbetter uncovers the surprising origins and the even more surpris-
ing afterlife of the military-industrial complex, an idea that arose as
early as the 1930s, and shows how it gained traction during World
War II, the Cold War, and the Vietnam era and continues even today.

In this impressively researched, alarming book, Rosaleen Duffy investigates
the world of nature conservation, arguing that the West’s attitude to endan-
gered wildlife is shallow, self-contradictory, and ultimately very damaging.
Analyzing the workings of the black-market wildlife industry, Duffy points
out that illegal trading is often the direct result of Western consumer desires,
from coltan for cellular phones to exotic meats sold in London street mar-
kets. She looks at the role of ecotourism, showing how Western travelers
contribute—often unwittingly—to the destruction of natural environments.
Most strikingly, she argues that the imperatives of Western-style conserva-
tion often result in serious injustice to local people, who are branded as
“problems” and subject to severe restrictions on their way of life and even
extrajudicial killings.

Butterfly ’s Sisters Yoko Kawaguchi has written and lectured

The Geisha in Western Culture on many aspects of Japanese culture, including
garden design, costume, and drama.
Yoko Kawaguchi
In this fascinating and wide-ranging book, Yoko Kawaguchi explores the
Western portrayal of Japanese women—and geishas in particular—from
the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. She argues that in the
West, Japanese women have come to embody certain ideas about feminine
sexuality, and she analyzes how these ideas have been expressed in diverse
art forms, ranging from fiction and opera to the visual arts and music vid-
eos. Among the many works Kawaguchi discusses are the art criticism of
Baudelaire and Huysmans, the opera Madama Butterfly, the sculptures of
Rodin, the Broadway play Teahouse of the August Moon, and the interna-
tional best seller Memoirs of a Geisha. Butterfly’s Sisters also examines the
impact on early twentieth-century theatre, drama, and dance theory of the
performance styles of the actresses Madame Hanako and Sadayakko, both
formerly geishas.

George Gershwin ◆◆ Yale Broadway Masters Series
Larry Starr Larry Starr is a Professor of Music History,
University of Washington. He lives in Seattle.
In this welcome addition to the immensely popular Yale Broadway Masters
series, Larry Starr focuses fresh attention on George Gershwin’s Broadway
contributions and examines their centrality to the composer’s entire career.
Starr presents Gershwin as a composer with a unified musical vision—a
vision developed on Broadway and used as a source of strength in his well-
known concert music. In turn, Gershwin’s concert-hall experience enriched
and strengthened his musicals, leading eventually to his great “Broadway
opera,” Porgy and Bess. Through the prism of three major shows—Lady Be
Good (1924), Of Thee I Sing (1931), and Porgy and Bess (1935)—Starr high-
lights Gershwin’s distinctive contributions to the evolution of the Broadway
musical. In addition, the author considers Gershwin’s musical language, his
compositions for the concert hall, and his movie scores for Hollywood in the
light of his Broadway experience.

Mozart and the Nazis Erik Levi is reader in music, Royal Holloway
How the Third Reich Abused a Cultural Icon University of London, and author of Music in
the Third Reich. He lives in Surrey, UK.
Erik Levi
Despite the apparent incompatibility between Mozart’s humanitarian and
cosmopolitan outlook and Nazi ideology, the Third Reich tenaciously pro-
moted the great composer’s music to further the goals of the fascist regime.
In this revelatory book, Erik Levi draws on period articles, diaries, speeches,
and other archival materials to provide a new understanding of how the
Nazis shamelessly manipulated Mozart for their own political advantage.
The book also explores the continued Jewish veneration of the composer
during this period while also highlighting some of the disturbing legacies
of Mozart reception that resulted from Nazi appropriation of his work.
Augmented by rare contemporary illustrations, Mozart and the Nazis will
be widely welcomed by readers with interests in music, German history,
Holocaust studies, propaganda, and politics in the twentieth century.

R avel Roger Nichols is the author of The Life

A Life of Debussy and The Harlequin Years: Music in
Paris 1917–1929. He has edited most of Ravel’s
Roger Nichols piano music for Peters Edition of London.
This new biography of Maurice Ravel (1875–1937), by one of the lead-
ing scholars of nineteenth- and twentieth-century French music, is based
on a wealth of written and oral evidence, some newly translated and some
derived from interviews with the composer’s friends and associates. As well as
describing the circumstances in which Ravel composed, the book explores
new evidence to present radical views of the composer’s background and
upbringing, his notorious failure in the Prix de Rome, his incisive and often
combative character, his sexual preferences, and his long final illness. It also
contains the most detailed account so far published of his hugely successful
American tour of 1928. The world of Maurice Ravel—including friendships
(and some fallings-out) with Debussy, Fauré, Diaghilev, Gershwin, and
Toscanini—is deftly uncovered in this sensitive portrait.

study of the topin in sixty years—locates Blake within the broad spectrum
of Christian biblical interpretation and explores the ways in which Blake
engaged with the Bible. Christopher Rowland argues that Blake’s approach
to the Bible was broadly consistent, even though he underwent something
of a religious change in his later years. The author also shows how Blake saw
himself as being in the prophetic tradition and also as somehow continuing
the work of John of Patmos, author of the Book of Revelation.

The Settlers Gadi Taub is assistant professor, Department

Gadi Taub lives in Tel Aviv.
The controversy over settlements in the occupied territories is a far more
intractable problem for Israel than is widely perceived, Gadi Taub observes
in this illuminating book. The clash over settlement is no mere policy dis-
agreement, he maintains, but rather a struggle over the very meaning of
Zionism. The book presents an absorbing study of religious settlers’ ideology
and how it has evolved in response to Israel’s history of wars, peace efforts,
assassination, the pull-out from Gaza, and other tumultuous events.
Taub tracks the efforts of religious settlers to reconcile with mainstream
Zionism but concludes that the project cannot succeed. A new Zionist con-
sensus recognizes that Israel must pull out of the occupied territories or face
an unacceptable alternative: the dissolution of Israel into a binational state
with a Jewish minority.

Mark Totten
Can the use of force first against a less-than-imminent threat be both morally
acceptable and consistent with American values? In this timely book Mark
Totten offers the first in-depth, historical examination of the use of preemp-
tive and preventive force through the lens of the just war tradition.
Although critical of the American incursion into Iraq as a so-called “preemp-
tive war,” Totten argues that the new terrorist threat nonetheless demands
careful consideration of when the first use of force is legitimate. The moral
tradition, he concludes, provides a principled way forward that reconciles
American values and the demands of security.

Laura A. Dickinson
Over the past decade, states and international organizations have shifted a
surprising range of foreign policy functions to private contractors. But who
is accountable when the employees of foreign private firms do violence or
create harm? This timely book describes the services that are now delivered
by private contractors and the threat this trend poses to core public values
of human rights, democratic accountability, and transparency. The author
offers a series of concrete reforms that are necessary to expand traditional
legal accountability, construct better mechanisms of public participation,
and alter the organizational structure and institutional culture of contrac-
tor firms. The result is a pragmatic, nuanced, and comprehensive set of
responses to the problem of foreign affairs privatization.

R epresenting Justice ◆◆ Yale Law Library Series in Legal History

The Creation and Fragility of Courts in Democracies and Reference
Judith Resnik and Dennis E. Curtis Judith Resnik and Dennis Curtis are
law professors at Yale Law School.
By mapping the remarkable run of the icon of Justice, a woman with scales
and sword, and by tracing the development of public spaces dedicated to
justice—courthouses—the authors explore the evolution of adjudication
into its modern form as well as the intimate relationship between the courts
and democracy. The authors analyze how Renaissance “rites” of judgment
turned into democratic “rights,” requiring governments to respect judicial
independence, provide open and public hearings, and accord access and
dignity to “every person.” With over 220 images, readers can see both the
longevity of aspirations for justice and the transformation of courts, as well as
understand that, while venerable, courts are also vulnerable institutions that
should not be taken for granted.

Over the course of five decades, the seventeenth-century naturalist Georgius
Everhardus Rumphius assiduously gathered information on the native
plants of Ambon Island and its archipelago. By presenting descriptions of
the plants and their multiple uses, he succeeded in creating a cultural and

World War I’s Gallipoli campaign was an ill-fated Allied attempt to shorten
the war by eliminating Turkey, creating a Balkan alliance against the Central
Powers, and securing a sea route to Russia. Now in paperback, this definitive

order” (Wall Street Journal).
“A well-written book, complete with a great bibliography and some of the
most outstanding maps to be delivered with any account of war and battle.

A History
Gary A. Anderson
In this sensitive, imaginative, and original work, Gary A. Anderson shows
how changing conceptions of sin and forgiveness lay at the very heart of the
biblical tradition. Spanning nearly two thousand years, the book brilliantly
demonstrates how sin, once conceived of as a physical burden, becomes,
over time, eclipsed by economic metaphors. These changing notions pro-
foundly shaped both Jewish and Christian practices, provided a spur for the
Protestant Reformation, and created a legacy that endures until today.
“An extraordinary piece of detective work  . . .[and] an extremely important,
indeed, mind-changing book for anyone interested in the history of these
two religions.” —James Kugel, Harvard University
“Wonderful and surprising  . . .a significant contribution both to scriptural
interpretation and to theology proper.” —Commonweal
“A most impressive contribution to the recovery of the moral ballast of our
culture.” —George Weigel, Ethics and Public Policy Center
Gary A. Anderson is professor of Old Testament/Hebrew Bible in the Department
of Theology at the University of Notre Dame.

that countered the anti-Judaism not only of his Manichaean oppo-
nents but also of his own church. The Christian Empire, Augustine
held, was right to ban paganism and to coerce heretics. But the
source of ancient Jewish scripture and current Jewish practice, he
argued, was the very same as that of the New Testament and of the
church—namely, God himself. Accordingly, he urged, Jews were to
be left alone. Conceived as a vividly original way to defend Christian
ideas about Jesus and about the Old Testament, Augustine’s theologi-
cal innovation survived the collapse of the Western Roman Empire,
and it ultimately served to protect Jewish lives against the brutality
of medieval crusades.
Augustine and the Jews sheds new light on the origins of Christian
anti-Semitism and, through Augustine, opens a path toward better
understanding between two of the world’s great religions.

The Young Charles Darwin
Keith Thomson
This “stylish, scholarly and entertaining” (Scientific American) look at
Charles Darwin’s early years sheds light on what shaped and prepared the
naturalist for a remarkable career of scientific achievement.
“Thomson delivers a lively account of how this naive young student became
the iconoclastic bearer of ‘the most dangerous idea of the past two hundred
years.’  . . .Drawing on his letters, diary entries and autobiographical work as
well as his public intellectual struggles, Thomson’s angle on Darwin’s early
life is fresh and vivid.” —Publishers Weekly
“Thomson, who manages to be stylish, scholarly and entertaining all at the

Dominion from Sea to Sea

Pacific Ascendancy and American Power
Bruce Cumings
Being bordered by the world’s two largest oceans gives America a competi-
tive advantage that is often overlooked by historians focused primarily on the
Atlantic and the country’s relationship with Europe. Bruce Cumings boldly
challenges this perspective, advocating for a dual approach to American his-
tory that equally incorporates both Atlan­ticist and Pacificist perspectives.
“Bruce Cumings traces American history along its inexorable drive westward,
not merely to California and the limits of the continent’s frontier but all the
way to the Pacific Rim. He argues that such westward outreach has trans-
formed America’s character and helped to write its destiny, if not always for
the good.” —Arthur Herman, Wall Street Journal

Greco-Roman Religion and Christianity

In this fresh inquiry into early Christianity and Greco-Roman paganism,
Luke Timothy Johnson finds multiple points of similarity in religious sensi-
bility between the two traditions.
“Johnson brings alive the religious world in which Christianity originated
and developed. By focusing on specific representatives of Greco-Roman
religious life, he provides well-defined models of what he is talking about.
His typology then allows us to understand better not only Greco-Roman
religions but also Judaism and early Christianity in new ways.” —Daniel J.

A renowned naval historian reexamines the life of Sir John Franklin and his
ill-fated 1845 Arctic voyage, and reveals for the first time that locating the
elusive North West Passage wasn’t the only goal of the expedition.
“Andrew Lambert has written another brilliant piece of research combined
with old-fashioned detective work. [This] is a heart-breaking journey
through unwarranted hope and avoidable despair and yet utterly compel-

Historian, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
“Lambert presents a rigorously researched examination of Franklin’s life and
work as a scientist, naval officer, explorer, and British colonial governor of
Tasmania.  . . .[He] successfully uses extensive historical evidence to reveal
Franklin’s admirable leadership abilities and makes a compelling case for his
view that the main purpose for the Franklin expedition was to further long-
running British scientific research on the earth’s magnetic field, and not just
to attempt to locate the Northwest Passage.” —Ingrid Levin, Library Journal

A Computer in Every Living Cell
Dennis Bray
How is a single-cell creature able to hunt living prey, respond to external
stimuli, and display complex sequences of movements without the benefit
of a nervous system? In colorful, jargon-free language, biologist Dennis Bray
explains how living cells perform computations and what it means function-
ally and evolutionarily.
“Drawing on the similarities between Pac-Man and an amoeba and efforts
to model the human brain, this absorbing read shows that biologists and
engineers have a lot to learn from working together.” —Discover
“Bray has already done a great service.  . . .Wetware will get the reader think-
ing.” —Science
“Elegant and very readable.” —Celia Gitterman, Chemistry World
Dennis Bray is professor emeritus, University of Cambridge, and coauthor of several
influential texts on molecular and cell biology. In 2007, he was awarded the prestigious
European Science Prize in Computational Biology.

Allison Stanger
Utilizing private contractors is essential to American interests, but it must
be done right, asserts international relations scholar Allison Stanger, who
presents a bold vision of what that approach should be.
“As we debate how many more troops to dispatch to Afghanistan, it might
be a good time to also debate just how far we’ve already gone in hiring pri-
vate contractors to do jobs that the State Department, Pentagon and C.I.A.
once did on their own. A good place to start is with . . . One Nation Under
Contract.”—Thomas Friedman, New York Times
“A fascinating book about military contractors and just how big a role they
play in U.S. defense policy.”—Fareed Zakaria, CNN’s GPS (Book of the
“The real strength of this superb book is not what it reveals, as stunning
as that may be, but how well [Stanger] assimilates the changed circum-
stances of modern-day governance and simply addresses what now must be
done. . . . Stanger deserves a gold medal for this book.”—Mickey Edwards,
Boston Globe
“Powerfully argued . . . provocative. . . . By shining a light on what she calls
America’s ‘shadow government,’ [Stanger] does us the great favor of trigger-
ing a long overdue political debate.”—Thomas P.M. Barnett, World Politics

tery and wonder. Fusing house and dream, it probes the relationship
between interior and shell, object and space, and it elaborates “the
marvelous” and “compulsive beauty” as espoused by André Breton.
The haunted house, the cabinet of curiosities, the ruined castle, the
cage, the cave, the box, the labyrinth, the bell jar, and the womb are
among the uniquely surreal habitats explored.
Shaped by the irrational and the subversive, the flip side of the mod-
ernist paradigm of the functional, rational dwelling, The Surreal
House is ripe for discovery. Mirroring the surrealist love of poetic jux-
taposition, the project brings together works by artists such as Edward
Hopper, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio de Chirico, Man Ray, Max
Ernst, René Magritte, Joseph Cornell, and Salvador Dalí. A surreal
legacy is to be found in the interiors of little-known Italian architect
and designer Carlo Mollino, in Frederick Kiesler’s model for “The
Endless House” (1957–59), in sculptures by Louise Bourgeois and
Rebecca Horn, and in installations by Edward Kienholz and Ilya
Kabakov. Contemporary architecture is represented by the work of
Rem Koolhaas and Diller & Scofidio, among others.
A manifesto for a poetic reading of the house, The Surreal House
reflects on the unquestionable importance of the dwelling, the cra-
dle of our being, in the imaginative realm. This richly illustrated
account brings together a host of commentators and historians, and
accompanies a major exhibition.

that his work reached its zenith in the early 1930s, when he was affili-
ated with the Surrealist movement. The forty years of work executed
after 1940—the bulk of his oeuvre—is often seen as repetitious, reac-
tionary, and overly commercialized. Such criticisms mainly arose
from his 1941 reinvention of himself as a “classicist,” his embrace
of Catholicism, and his support for General Franco—postures that
distanced him from notions of modernism and the avant-garde.
This handsomely illustrated volume focuses on Dalí’s work after
1940, presenting it as a multifaceted oeuvre that simultaneously
drew inspiration from the Old Masters and the contemporary world.
Beginning in the late 1930s with the transition from Dalí’s well-
known Surrealist canvases to the classicism he announced in 1941,
the volume traces the artist’s work in illustration, fashion, and the-
atre, predating commercial ventures by such celebrity artists as Andy
Warhol. Essays evaluate the significance of Dalí’s “nuclear mysti-
cism” of the 1950s, his enduring interest in science, optical effects,
and illusionism, his collaborations with photographer Philippe
Halsman (and his brief forays into Hollywood to work with Alfred
Hitchcock and Walt Disney), and visit the two major repositories of
his work—the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres and the Salvador
Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg.

Christen Købke
Danish Master of Light
David Jackson with Kasper Monrad
Christen Købke (1819–1848) was arguably the greatest painter of Denmark’s
“Golden Age,” the period of the nation’s supreme artistic achievement. He
had the remarkable ability to invest the simplest corner of town or country-
side with charm and delicacy, without resorting to the artificial rhetoric of
academic traditions. He endowed ordinary people and places, and simple
motifs, with a universal significance; a world in microcosm.
This beautiful book, written by leading scholars of Scandinavian art, offers
an overview of Købke’s achievement within its cultural context, and also
highlights the most innovative aspects of his work, including outdoor sketch-
ing, his fascination with painterly immediacy in the treatment of light and
atmosphere, his exquisite originality, and his experimental outlook.

Philip de L ászló
His Life and Art
Duff Hart-Davis
in collaboration with Caroline Corbeau-Parsons
Philip de László (1869–1937) was born into a humble Hungarian family
in Budapest and rose to become the preeminent portrait artist working in
Britain between 1907 and 1937. He painted nearly 3,000 portraits, including
those of numerous kings and queens, four American presidents, and count-
less members of the European nobility. “Has any one painter ever before
painted so many interesting and historical personages?” asked his contem-
poraries. There has been no biography of him since 1939, and this new
account of both his life and his work draws on previously untapped material
from the family archive of over 15,000 documents, to which the author has
had unrivaled access. It establishes the intrinsic importance of his art and re-
positions him in his rightful place alongside his great contemporaries John
Singer Sargent, Sir John Lavery, and Giovanni Boldini.
Duff Hart-Davis is the author or editor of over 40 books and the biographer of Peter
Fleming (the elder brother of Ian), Raoul Millais (the grandson of J. E. Millais), J. J.
Audubon, and Eileen Soper (the wildlife photographer).

The Age of French Impressionism
Masterpieces from the Art Institute of Chicago
Gloria Groom and Douglas Druick
With the assistance of Dorota Chudzicka and Jill Shaw
The Art Institute of Chicago houses one of the world’s greatest collections
of late-19th-century French art. This stunning book highlights more than
100 of the museum’s masterpieces, from the bold works of Édouard Manet,
an important figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism, to
Claude Monet’s light-filled paintings—the hallmarks of the period—and
Paul Cézanne’s influential Post-Impressionist canvases.
Each beautifully reproduced work is situated in terms of the memorable
era in which it was created, and collectively they exemplify the diversity
of ideas and extraordinary wealth of talent at work during the remarkable
Impressionist period. The publication also features a chronology—illustrated
with color reproductions, archival photographs, and exhibition shots—that Distributed for the Art Institute of Chicago
documents the history and formation of the Art Institute of Chicago’s

250 Objects of Fashion & Desire
Bianca du Mortier and Ninke Bloemberg
From purses to parasols, spectacles to slippers, wigs to walking sticks, the
Rijksmuseum has a superb collection of fashion accessories that also
includes a rich array of more familiar items: hats, gloves, and shoes for both
men and women. Ranging from the 15th to the 21st century, the objects in
this stylish book are grouped by color, allowing intriguing juxtapositions of
period, material, and type.
Many of these accessories were originally received as gifts on all kinds of
occasions and for all kinds of reasons: a souvenir from a distant country
sent to the family back home; a pair of gloves or a purse embroidered with
symbols of marriage and the couple’s initials; an ivory fan commissioned
in Canton, carved with the initials of a lover or inscribed with an amorous
allusion; an embroidered cap from a wife to a husband to mark the birth of a Distributed for the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
child; a fan for a daughter from her grateful parents for her loyal obedience;
or a gift for wedding guests to take home.
Superb photography and award-winning design make this an exceptionally
desirable book for every follower of fashion with a sense of history.

And whatever his subject matter, his work reveals an unrivalled tal-

During the 18th and 19th centuries, Metsu held a place as one of the

were acquired for noble collections throughout Europe, while his
contemporary Johannes Vermeer was almost unheard of. In the 20th

This enlightening book resituates Metsu as one of the leading genre

and his wide network of contacts and colleagues in Amsterdam, as
well as analysis of Metsu’s technique as a draftsman and as a painter,
and it documents the fashions and fabrics of the time through
his work.

Petah Coyne
Everything That Rises Must Converge
Denise Markonish
With a conversation between Petah Coyne and Rebecca
Solnit and a contribution by A. M. Homes
Unlike many contemporary artists who focus on social or media-related
issues, Petah Coyne (born 1953) imbues her work with a magical quality
to evoke intensely personal associations. Her sculptures convey an inher-
ent tension between vulnerability and aggression, innocence and seduction,
beauty and decadence, and, ultimately, life and death. In her darkly beau-
tiful sculptural installations, she uses unusual and eclectic materials such
as hay, black sand, wax, satin ribbons, artificial flowers, white powder, and
taxidermy animals.

How to R ead Greek Vases

Joan R. Mertens
How is it possible today to gain insight into the culture that flourished in
ancient Greece over 2,500 years ago? Works of art are eloquent interme-
diaries. This generously illustrated volume provides an introduction to the
painted pottery that served specific utilitarian functions and that afforded
outstanding artists a medium for depicting their gods and heroes and the
details of daily existence. The key to understanding the rich language of the
Greek vase is tuning into the interrelation of its function, shape, technique,
and subject matter. Notable examples from the Metropolitan Museum’s
exceptional collection reveal the variety and vitality of the refined forms
and masterfully rendered scenes that characterize these engaging works of
ancient Greek art.

stunning variety of garments. Ranging from the buttoned-up gowns

the dresses reflect the sensibilities and excesses of each era while
providing a vivid picture of how styles have changed—sometimes
radically—over the years. A late 1600s wool dress with a surprising
splash of silver thread; a large-bustled red satin dress from the 1800s;
a short, shimmery 1920s dancing dress; a glamorous 1950s cocktail

and serves as a testament to the enduring ingenuity of the fashion

Specifics the Art Institute of Chicago.
David Raskin
An authoritative and enlightening guide to a
wide array of works in various media by a great
American artist, enhanced by quotations from
the artist’s own writings and interviews
This pioneering book, the first monograph devoted to Donald Judd,
addresses the whole breadth of Judd’s practices. Drawing on docu-
ments found in nearly twenty archives, David Raskin explains why
some of Judd’s works of art seem startlingly ephemeral while others
remain insistently physical. In the process of answering this previ-
ously perplexing question, Raskin traces Judd’s principles from his
beginnings as an art critic through his fabulous installations and
designs in Marfa, Texas. He discusses Judd’s early important paint-
ings and idiosyncratic red objects, as well as the three-dimensional
works that are celebrated throughout the world. He also examines
Judd’s commitment to empirical values and his political activism,
and concludes by considering the importance of Judd’s example for
recent art.
Ultimately, Raskin develops a picture of Judd as never before seen: he
shows us an artist who asserted his individuality with spare designs;
who found spiritual values in plywood, Plexiglas, and industrial pro-
duction; who refused to distinguish between thinking and feeling
while asserting that science marked the limits of knowledge; who
claimed that his art provided not just intuitions of morality but a
specific set of tenets; and who worked for political causes that were
neither left nor right.

The Chinati Foundation is widely considered one of the world’s

most important destinations for experiencing large-scale contempo-
rary art. It was founded by Donald Judd (1928–1994), whose specific
ambition was to preserve and present a select number of permanent
installations that were inextricably linked to the surrounding land-
scape. Chinati is located on 340 acres of desert on the site of former
Fort D.A. Russell in Marfa, Texas. Construction and installation at
the site began in 1979 with help from the Dia Art Foundation, and it
was opened to the public in 1986.
This handsome publication is the first comprehensive presentation
of the Chinati Foundation’s collection in more than twenty years.
The book describes how Judd developed his ideas of the role of art
and museums from the early 1960s onward, culminating in the cre-
ation of Chinati (and including its two predecessors—his buildings
in New York and his residence in Marfa). The individual installa-
tions at Chinati are presented in chronological order with stunning
photography; these include work by John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin,
David Rabinowitch, Roni Horn, Ilya Kabakov, Richard Long, Carl
Andre, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen, as well as Judd
himself. His installations at Marfa include 15 outdoor works in con-
crete and 100 aluminum pieces housed in two carefully renovated
artillery sheds. The book also features writings by Judd relating to
Chinati and Marfa, and a complete catalogue of the collection.

A rts & Crafts Movement
Kevin W. Tucker
With essays by Beverly K. Brandt, David Cathers, Joseph
Cunningham, and Beth Ann and Tommy McPherson
An impressive new look at the iconic designs of
the workshops of the patriarch of the American
Arts and Crafts movement, Gustav Stickley
With its emphasis on social reform and simplicity in design—bold
lines, honest use of materials, and redeeming qualities of handmade
goods—the Arts and Crafts movement offered an antidote to the per-
ceived ills of a rapidly changing world and the ornate and artificial
Victorian aesthetic of the late 19th century. In the first years of the
20th century, the movement was popularized in the United States Gustav Stickley, Electric Lantern No. 777, c. 1909. Copper,

Treasures of Heaven
Saints, Relics, and Devotion in Medieval Europe
Edited by Martina Bagnoli, Holger A. Klein,
C. Griffith Mann, and James Robinson
Drawing together a vast array of treasured objects from collections
throughout Europe and the United States, this beautifully illustrated vol-
ume examines the cult of sacred relics in greater depth and breadth than
ever before. Tracing the making of reliquaries from the earliest days of
Christianity to the apogee of the practice in the 16th century, the book con-
siders the importance of reliquaries as markers of the divine in both Eastern
Christianity (Byzantium) and Western Christendom. The book also tracks
the fate of relics and reliquaries in the wake of the Reformation, anti-clerical
movements, and the French Revolution.
An international group of scholars explores how medieval artists used earthly
materials to construct the heavenly power of sacred objects and sheds fasci- Exhibition Schedule:

Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico
Kathleen Berrin and Virginia M. Fields
A major exploration of one of the most important
early artistic cultures of the ancient Americas
Considered the “mother culture” of Mesoamerica, the Olmec devel-
oped an iconic and sophisticated artistic style as early as the second
millennium b.c. This pre-Columbian civilization, which flourished
in the Mexican states of Veracruz and Tabasco between 1400 and 400
b.c., is best known for the creation of colossal stone portrait heads of
its rulers. Some weighing up to 24 tons, the monumental heads are
among ancient America’s most striking and beautiful masterpieces.
In the fifteen years since the last major study of the Olmec, archae-

Thomas L awrence
Regency Brilliance and Power
Edited by Cassandra Albinson, Peter Funnell,
and Lucy Peltz, with essays by Cassandra
Albinson, Peter Funnell, and Marcia Pointon
Sir Thomas Lawrence (1769–1830) was the pre-eminent portraitist of the
Regency period, depicting monarchs, political leaders, aristocratic fami-
lies, society beauties, and actresses with bravura flair. This important book
explores Lawrence’s political friendships and allegiances along with his
exceptional role as witness to significant historical events, and contrasts these
with his remarkable ability to depict the charm and innocence of childhood.
Elected President of the Royal Academy in 1820, Lawrence was instrumen-
tal in establishing the status of the artist in 19th-century Britain.

With essays by Angelika Wesenberg, Stefan

This beautiful catalogue gathers a magnificent selection of the fin-
est landscape works by Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, and Max
Slevogt—Germany’s three greatest Impressionist painters. Impressionism,
considered a French style of painting, was greeted with hostility in Germany,
where traditionalists opposed all foreign influence in the art of their nation
state. Yet Liebermann, Corinth, and Slevogt, whose works were less rigid
and routine than those of many of their contemporaries, won over a doubtful
domestic audience and inspired a flowering of Impressionism in Germany.

waste—train tickets, newspaper fragments, bits of wire—new life as
compositional elements in his installations, assemblages, sculptures,

objects into his work, this pioneer of installation art came closest to
his ideal with Merzbau, a room-size walk-in sculpture constructed
entirely of found materials.
Alongside images and analysis of a full-scale reconstruction of
Merzbau, this book includes an illustrated chronology and 90 color

on the artist who created poetry from the commonplace.

The Structure of Light

Edited by Dietrich Neumann
With contributions by Michelle Addingon, Howard Brandston,

Maile-Petty, and Matthew Tanteri; Foreword by Robert A. M. Stern
The potential of electric light as a new building “material” was recognized
in the 1920s and became a useful design tool by the mid-century. Skillful
lighting allowed for theatricality, narrative, and a new emphasis on structure
and space. The Structure of Light tells the story of the career of Richard Kelly,
the field’s most influential figure.
Six historians, architects, and practitioners explore Kelly’s unparalleled
influence on modern architecture and his lighting designs for some of the

made their first major incursion into North China and initiated a
period of extraordinary creativity in the arts that was encouraged by
the confluence of many cultures and ethnic groups. This period
lasted approximately 150 years and had its greatest flowering in the
Yuan dynasty, founded by Khubilai in 1271 and lasting until 1368.
Xanadu to Dadu is a groundbreaking study of the art and culture
produced at this time by the Chinese and by the highly skilled
craftsmen from Western and Central Asia, who were selected for
their abilities and brought together in Northern Chinese workshops,
where they exchanged ideas, styles, and art forms. The works they
produced created a new art style that would influence the arts of
China in all subsequent periods. In the 11 essays included in this
volume, art historians discuss the origins of new art forms, daily life
in Yuan China, in particular at the imperial court and in the capital
cities of Xanadu (Shangdu) and Dadu (Beijing), and the impact on
the arts of the religions practiced at this time, including Buddhism,
Daoism, Christianity, Manichaeism, Hinduism, and Islam. The
essays are accompanied by beautifully reproduced color illustrations
of artworks from Chinese and international collections.

rapidly westernizing community he encountered, his works from
this period nonetheless celebrate the myth of an untainted Tahitian
idyll, a myth he continued to perpetuate upon his return to Paris. He
created a travel journal entitled Noa Noa (fragrant scent), a largely
fictionalized account that recalled his immersion into the spiritual
world of the South Seas. To illustrate his text, Gauguin turned
for the first time to the woodcut medium, creating a series of ten
dark and brooding prints that he intended to publish alongside his
journal—a publication that was never realized. The woodcuts crys-
tallized important themes from his work and are the focus of this
major new study.
Gauguin’s Paradise Remembered addresses both the artist’s repre-
sentation of Tahiti in the woodcut medium and the impact these
works had on his artistic practice. Through its combined sense of
immediacy (in the apparent directness of the printing process) and
distance (through the mechanical repetition of motifs), the woodcut
offered Gauguin the ideal medium to depict a paradise whose real
attraction lay in its remaining always unattainable. With two insight-
ful essays, this book posits that Gauguin’s Noa Noa prints allowed
him to convey his deeply Symbolist conception of his Tahitian expe-
rience while continuing his experiments with reproductive processes
and other technical innovations that engaged him at the time.

A rt and Activism
Projects of John and Dominique de Menil
Edited by Laureen Schipsi
Introduction by Josef Helfenstein and Laureen Schipsi
This lavishly illustrated book is the first to examine the significant contribu-
tions of John and Dominique de Menil to art, architecture, film, and the
civil and human rights movements. The de Menils, who moved to Houston
from France in 1941, amassed one of the world’s great private art collections
and became passionately involved in the cause of human rights.
The volume includes a discussion of the building of the de Menils’ art col-
lection; their patronage of modern architecture in Houston; their embrace
of modernism; their leadership in Houston’s civil rights movement and in
human rights projects worldwide; their commissioning of works of art; their
involvement in early film education and documentary filmmaking; and
their establishment of the Rothko Chapel, the Menil Collection, the Cy Distributed for The Menil Collection
Twombly Gallery, the Dan Flavin Installation, and the Byzantine Fresco
Chapel Museum. Vintage photographs, including those taken by Henri
Cartier Bresson and Eve Arnold, previously unpublished correspondence
with artists, and an illustrated chronology all add to this textured tribute to
the de Menils’ extraordinary achievements.

Meet R embrandt
Life and Work of the Master Painter
Gary Schwartz
Rembrandt was a painter and draftsman of undisputed genius, but what was
he like as a person? The mystery of the moody and inspired Rembrandt
continues to fascinate. Gary Schwartz tells the story of Rembrandt the man,
artist, and legend in lively and accessible language. He introduces us to the
people who inspired the artist: patrons, wives, and lovers, and his son Titus,
who died tragically young. And Schwartz recounts the sorrowful and impov-
erished circumstances of the artist’s last years. Rembrandt’s fascinating art
remains, enriching the biographical details of his life through its subject
matter and its development from the polished sophistication of his early
years in Amsterdam to the deep soul-searching of the late works.
This attractive and accessible book is the ideal introduction for students and
all art lovers. Distributed for the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Gary Schwartz is an independent art historian who has published many authorita-
tive works on Rembrandt. He was awarded the 2009 Prince Bernhard Culture Fund Prize.

The Rothko Chapel

Writings on Art and the Threshold of the Divine
Dominique de Menil
Forewords by Christopher Rothko and Fariha de Menil
Friedrich; Introduction by Emilee Dawn Whitehurst
This elegant collection commemorates the timeless words and inspired
thoughts of Dominique de Menil, a woman whose life’s task was to inspire
a better world. With her husband John, Dominique founded the inter-­
religious Rothko Chapel in Houston in 1971. The de Menils’ dream was for
the Chapel to promote interfaith dialogue, human rights, and the arts. They
famously commissioned the artist Mark Rothko to create a suite of paintings
specifically for the Chapel.
Gathered here is a selection of de Menil’s thought-provoking speeches,
interviews, letters, and other commentaries, beginning with her inaugural
address for the Rothko Chapel and concluding with remarks she offered at Distributed for the Rothko Chapel
a human rights award ceremony in 1997. The writings testify to de Menil’s
profound belief in the transcendent dimension of life and in the motivating
power of the principles of truth and justice. More relevant today than ever,
her visionary ideas seem both prescient and deeply important in the strife-
ridden world of the 21st century.
Dominique de Menil (1908–1997), an American heiress to the Schlumberger
Limited oil-equipment fortune, was devoted to art and human rights. Her legacy includes
the Menil Collection Museum and Rothko Chapel in Houston.

Paul Strand (1890–1976) are among the most famous photographers
of the 20th century. This handsome volume showcases for the first
time the Metropolitan Museum’s extraordinarily rich holdings of
works by these diverse and groundbreaking masters.
A passionate advocate for photography and modern art promoted
through his “Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession” (also known
as “291”) and his journal Camera Work, Stieglitz was also a pho-
tographer of supreme accomplishment. Featured works by Stieglitz
include portraits, landscapes, city views, and cloud studies, along
with photographs from his composite portrait of Georgia O’Keeffe
(selected by O’Keeffe herself for the Museum). Steichen—perhaps
best known as a fashion photographer, celebrity portraitist, and
MoMA curator—was Stieglitz’s man in Paris, gallery collaborator,
and most talented exemplar of Photo-Secessionist photography. His
three large variant prints of The Flatiron and his moonlit photographs
of Rodin’s Balzac are highlighted here. Marking a pivotal moment
in the course of photography, the final double issue of Camera Work
(1917) was devoted to the young Paul Strand, whose photographs
from 1915–17 treated three principal themes—movement in the
city, abstractions, and street portraits—and pioneered a shift from
the soft-focus Pictorialist aesthetic to the straight approach and
graphic power of an emerging modernism. Represented are Strand’s
rare large platinum prints—most of them unique exhibition prints of
images popularly known only as Camera Work photogravures.
The rarely exhibited photographs gathered in Stieglitz, Steichen,
Strand are among the crown jewels of the Metropolitan’s collection.

range, of materials. Hicks deliberately and provocatively engages
what are often considered mutually exclusive domains, rethinking
and pushing the limits of generally accepted contexts, conditions,
and frameworks. These include distinct objects and temporal, perfor-
mative actions; studio works and commissions for public buildings;
and textiles made in artisanal workshops as well as for industrial
production in places as different as Chile, France, Germany, India,
Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Sweden, and the United States.
Three essays analyze the progression of Hicks’s art and technique
and her many modes of working. Among other topics, they exam-
ine the artist’s relationship to the “expanded fields” of the “new
sculpture” and the “new tapestry” beginning in the 1960s, the rec-
lamation of craft as subject and technique for artists in many media,
the integrated influences of international cultures, and the aesthetic,
pedagogical, conceptual, and historical framework from which
Hicks’s work has developed. This publication reveals the full extent
of Hicks’s work, from exquisite miniature weavings to major sculp-
tural pieces to such large-scale commissions as The Four Seasons of
Fuji. Exquisitely designed and lavishly illustrated, this book demon-
strates that Hicks’s pioneering work with textiles has embraced yet
reinvented tradition, successfully navigating the terrain between art,
design, and architecture.

creative energies were expressed in new and exciting aesthetic ven-
tures. The young artist moved from Paris to London and successfully
ignited his career as a portrait painter. His first years in England
included a pastoral interlude during which he experimented with
Impressionist techniques, painting en plein air and producing vibrant
landscape, figure, and flower studies.
Sargent’s lush and seductive outdoor scenes and his concern with
the depiction of light—most fully realized in his exquisite Carnation,
Lily, Lily, Rose—are chronicled in this volume. Of special signifi-
cance is the account of Sargent’s relationship with Claude Monet,
the French Impressionist painter. This includes letters from Sargent
to Monet, most published for the first time. In 1890, Sargent began
work on a commission to execute a mural cycle for the Boston Public
Library. This prompted him to travel to Egypt, Greece, Turkey,
Spain, North Africa, and Italy in search of inspiration. The works
he painted are a testament to his intellectual preoccupations, and
underline his versatility and artistic reach.
Following its predecessors in this series, this beautiful book illustrates
nearly all of the paintings in colour. Each work is documented, with
provenance, exhibition history, and bibliography, and accompanied
by relevant studies and drawings.

Contemporary British Studio Ceramics
Annie Carlano
In Britain today the output of excellent ceramics seems more eclectic than
elsewhere. This stylish and wide-ranging survey comprises examples of clay
art by one hundred major artists, covering the period from the late 1980s
through 2009. Drawn from the Diane and Marc Grainer Collection, it
includes works by Allison Britton, Edmund de Waal, Kate Malone, Grayson
Perry, Julian Stair, Steve Dixon, and Nick Arroyave-Portela, among oth-
ers. The selection balances functional objects and sculpture; hand-built,
thrown, and molded techniques; varieties of scale and color; and cerebral
and emotional content.
All the ceramics here are rooted in the materiality of clay. The properties
of the raw material, from its soft, malleable texture to the alchemy of slips
and glazes, are at the core of the artists’ passion. And, as the text reveals, the
younger generation is moving into new directions of art practice. Exhibition Schedule:

One of Europe’s most influential contemporary artists, Michelangelo
Pistoletto (born 1933) has persistently investigated and expanded the role of
the spectator in art since the 1950s through painting, sculpture, and perfor-
mance. His present standing as an inspirational figure among younger artists
is a testament to the innovative vitality that characterizes all his work, from
early paintings and leadership in the Arte Povera movement to his influence
on current participatory artistic practices.

special “in-depth” image sections focusing on key installations, proj-

documentary photographs, many never before published, illuminate
Thek’s artistic aesthetic and production process. With a bibliography,

due acknowledgment of Thek’s brief, but broad-reaching career will
be the authoritative volume on the artist for years to come.

Gloria F. Ross and Modern Tapestry
Ann Lane Hedlund
Foreword by Grace Glueck
Gloria F. Ross (1923–1998) described her work as the translation of paint
into wool. She was deeply committed to reinventing the centuries-old art of
tapestry, particularly championing the handmade in contemporary art. This
remarkable book, written by textile scholar Ann Lane Hedlund, draws from
rare unpublished archives to unravel the evolution of Ross’s modern tapes-
tries and to illuminate the significance of her creative partnerships.
Gloria F. Ross and Modern Tapestry features the collaborative work of 28
acclaimed modernist painters and sculptors, including Helen Frankenthaler
(Ross’s sister), Kenneth Noland, and Louise Nevelson, with several dozen
traditional-yet-innovative weavers in France, Scotland, and the Southwestern
United States. Brief biographies of the artists, letters, notes, sketches, and
photographs illustrate the practical and aesthetic challenges that occupied Distributed for the University of Arizona

can be so identified with an artist and so evocative of his
life’s work that it becomes his single greatest achievement
This deeply engaging book introduces the reader to the creative
chaos of the tiny Parisian studio of the great sculptor Alberto
Giacometti, from the moment he and his brother, Diego, arrived
in 1927, with all their possessions in a wheelbarrow, until Alberto’s
death in 1966. Michael Peppiatt relates how the artist first worked
there as a member of the Surrealist movement and then how he
gradually made his mark on Paris’s artistic, literary, and intellectual
worlds. After an enforced wartime exile in Geneva in a miserable
hotel, he returned to Paris and to the same broken-down little shed
of a studio behind Montparnasse where he struggled to realize his
pared-down vision of mankind and which became a magnet for
many of the great artists and writers of the time (from Picasso and
Braque to Balthus, from Breton and Genet to Beckett). Peppiatt
prefaces his story with a poignant, personal narrative of how as a
young man he arrived in Paris with an introduction from Francis
Bacon to Giacometti; the encounter was forestalled by the artist’s
very recent death, but Peppiatt instead got to know the key people
in Giacometti’s world. He explains how the studio, now dismantled,
seems to be both Giacometti’s most important artwork, encompass-
ing countless complete or unfinished works, and the archive of years
of struggle. With Giacometti’s death, it became his greatest achieve-
ment, containing as it did the traces of a lifetime’s search for truth.
This vivid exploration of one of the most evocative and influential
spaces in 20th-century art connects us with both a unique career and
an entire, outstanding moment in French culture.

captured the city in dazzling pictures that are among the greatest
achievements in 18th-century art. Canaletto may be the artist popu-
larly associated with Venice, but he had many rivals who competed
for commissions, often from foreigners whose patronage was to deter-
mine the later course of Venetian view painting. All the major figures
are represented here—Bellotto, Carlevarijs, Guardi, Joli, Marieschi,
and Vanvitelli—together with fascinating contemporaries such as
Cimaroli and Tironi.
Charles Beddington sets the scene with an overview of the artists

Succinct, lively biographies for each artist are followed by short intro-

From the earliest—a remnant of an Italian altarpiece dating from
around 1265—to the most recent—Paul Cézanne’s great Bathers,
of about 1894–1905—each painting has been carefully chosen for
the unique significance it holds; whether representing a particu-

provides to the viewer. The painters featured here include some of
the most famous names in European art—Duccio, Giotto, Dürer,
Holbein, van Eyck, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael,
Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt, El Greco, Velázquez, Zurbarán, Goya,
Caravaggio, Claude, Poussin, Hogarth, Gainsborough, Reynolds,
Constable, Turner, Courbet, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas,
Rousseau, and Van Gogh—and some of the most iconic paint-
ings in the world—The Wilton Diptych, The Arnolfini Portrait, The
Ambassadors, and Sunflowers.

paintings ever made. The reader can dip in to explore individual
paintings, or read from cover to cover for a full survey.

The Visual World of French
Theory, Volume 1
Sarah Wilson
This revelatory book focuses on a remarkable series of encounters between
the most prominent French philosophers of the 1960s and 1970s—Sartre,
Deleuze, Bourdieu, and Foucault among them—and the artists of their
times, most particularly the protagonists of the Narrative Figuration move-
ment. Each encounter involved either a mutual engagement or the writing
of critical texts or catalogue prefaces—texts that illuminate not only the work
of the artists but also the production of the philosopher-writer concerned.
Although the protagonists of “French theory” are universally known and
studied, their thought is presented without a sense of contiguity, chronol-
ogy, or context in translation, while the artists with whom they engaged are
virtually unknown outside the French-speaking world. This account restores
the lived context of artistic production. What Bourdieu called “cultural com-
petence” is seen to be essential for these particular philosophers, and Sarah
Wilson shows that it is through them that the figurative art of 1970s France
can be introduced to the audience it deserves.
Sarah Wilson is professor of modern art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University
of London.

The Print in Early Modern England

An Historical Oversight
Malcolm Jones
The print repertoire of the 16th and 17th centuries in England has been
neglected historically, and this remarkable book rectifies a major oversight
in the history of English visual art. It provides an iconographic survey of the
single-sheet prints produced during the early modern era and brings to light
significant recent discoveries from this visual storehouse. It publishes many
works for the first time, as well as placing them and those relatively few oth-
ers known to specialists in their cultural context.
This large body of material is treated broadly thematically, and within each
theme, chronologically. Portents and prodigies, the formal moralities and
doctrines of Christianity, the sects of Christianity, visual satire of foreigners
and “others,” domestic political issues, social criticism and gender roles, mar- Published for the Paul Mellon Centre for
riage and sex, as well as numerical series and miscellaneous visual tricks, Studies in British Art
puzzles, and jokes, are all examined. The book concludes by considering
the significance of this wealth of visual material for the cultural history of
England in the early modern era.

Empire Without End
Antiquities Collections in Renaissance Rome, c. 1350–1527
Kathleen Wren Christian
This lucid and coherent account provides a new overview of the collect-
ing of antiquities in early renaissance Rome, from the time of Petrarch to
the Sack of Rome in 1527. In the early 15th century, when Romans dis-
covered ancient marble sculptures and inscriptions in the ruins, they often
melted them into mortar. A hundred years later, however, antique marbles
had assumed their familiar role as works of art displayed in private collec-
tions. In this important book, the author steps back to examine the “long”
15th century, a critical period in the history of antiquities collecting that has
received scant attention. She examines shifts in the response of artists and
writers to spectacular archaeological discoveries and the new role of collect-
ing antiquities in the public life of Roman elites. The book culminates in
a detailed catalogue of the thirty-six most important antiquities collections
formed before the Sack and brings these vanished sites back to life by using
archival documents, drawings, and descriptions by visitors to clarify the his-
tory and appearance of little-studied collections.

Becoming Venetian
Immigrants and the Arts in Early Modern Venice
Blake de Maria
Few, if any, early modern European cities boasted a population as racially,
ethnically, and religiously diverse as Renaissance Venice, from German mer-
chants living in the Fondaco dei Tedeschi to the Jewish inhabitants of the
Ghetto. This fascinating book focuses on the wealthy elite of that immigrant
population. From monumental palaces to pictorial cycles, Blake de Maria
examines the artistic patronage commissioned by and associated with rich
immigrant merchants who relocated to Venice with the aim of becoming
Venetian cittadini, or citizens.
As newcomers to the city, immigrant merchant families had to acquire the
material commodities necessary for everyday life, and the need to establish
an appropriate spiritual identity proved equally pressing. De Maria investi-
gates important aspects of the artistic, commercial, and familial activities of
naturalized citizen families, and considers the communal functions of this
merchant clan, their social identity as naturalized citizens, their contribu-
tions to the fabric of early modern Venice, and their complex relationship
with Venice’s native population. Rich in new material and full of human
interest, the book sheds light on a significant, hitherto little-known sector in
Venetian artistic patronage.
Blake de Maria is assistant professor of art history and director of the Medieval/
Renaissance Studies Program at Santa Clara University.

Ford M adox Brown
A Catalogue Raisonné
Mary Bennett
Ford Madox Brown (1821–1893) is known predominantly for his close asso-
ciation with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and for his masterpiece, The
Last of England (1852–55), with its poignant imagery of a young emigrant
couple aboard ship taking their last sight of home. Admired by the young
Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Brown was introduced by Rossetti to the artists of the
PRB, an association that confirmed Brown’s interests in outdoor light effects
and led to the glowing palette of his great paintings of the 1850s. His interests
embraced decorative design, and in the 1860s he was a founding member of
the now famous decorating firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co.
This fully illustrated catalogue provides the first complete coverage of all of
Madox Brown’s work (including a section on frame designs contributed by
Lynn Roberts). Drawing on the artist’s diary and largely unpublished corre- Published for the Paul Mellon Centre for

Mary Bennett was formerly Keeper of British Art at the Walker Art Gallery,

John Brett
Pre-Raphaelite Landscape Painter
Christiana Payne
Drawing on a wealth of unpublished sketchbooks, journals, and writings,
this essential guide to John Brett (1831–1902) investigates the painter who
was seen as the leader of the Pre-Raphaelite landscape school. In addi-
tion to exploring the familiar early works, including The Val d’Aosta and
Stonebreaker, it provides rich information on his later, less-known coastal
and marine paintings. Brett’s turbulent friendship with John Ruskin is dis-
cussed, as are his relations with his beloved sister, Rosa, and his partner Mary,
with whom he had seven children. His fervent interest in astronomy, his love
of the sea, and his lifelong pursuit of wealth and recognition are all exam-
ined in this reassessment, which concludes with a catalogue raisonné of his
works, prepared by his descendent Charles Brett.

Collector without Walls
Norton Simon and His Hunt for the Best
Sara Campbell
The American art collector Norton Simon assembled his astonishing col-

permanent home for the growing collection, Simon created his “museum

continued until 1974, when his collection was housed in the Norton Simon
Museum in Pasadena, today considered one of the finest museums in the
United States.
This beautiful book gives the history of Simon’s art collection, including the
most interesting acquisitions and deaccessions. It describes Simon’s early life
and business career, chronicles the collection’s development until his last
purchase in 1989, and analyzes the collection and the collector. A fully illus-

Chinese Enamels from the Ming and Qing Dynasties
Edited by Béatrice Quette
The technique of applying brilliant enamel ornament to metalwork, known
as cloisonné, reached its peak in China from the fourteenth century on. This
sumptuously illustrated survey, which accompanies an exhibition at the
Bard Graduate Center, situates these remarkable pieces in their context with
a survey of the historical, political and sociological milieu in China during
the period. Research recently undertaken in China and published here for
the first time has resulted in the redating of a number of objects with signifi-
cant implications for the overview of Chinese cloisonné production. Shapes,
functions, pattern, and symbolism in cloisonné objects are all examined and
explored. And the final section of the book reviews the impact of develop-
ments in China on later production in Europe, as well as the acquisition of
cloisonné pieces by the major American museums and private collectors at
the beginning of the twentieth century.

From Antiquity to the Renaissance
Thomas F. Mathews
With images culled from eleven hundred years of history, this comprehen-
sive survey explores the Byzantine empire’s vast range of artistic splendors that
indelibly informed the art of modern Europe. Renowned scholar Thomas
Mathews emphasizes that the Byzantines’ interest in humanism and paint-
ing the human figure became the essential bridge between classical and

A rts of the Pacific Islands

Anne D’Alleva
In this comprehensive survey of the art of the Pacific Islands, including the
Melanesian, Polynesian, Micronesian, and New Guinean traditions, author
Anne D’Alleva explains the significance of these artworks by contextualiz-
ing them within each island’s unique culture and practices. In the process,
D’Alleva examines the biases of both artists and Western viewers, telling an
important history of both people and ideas through a detailed analysis of
sculpture, paintings, textiles, dance, jewelry, and architecture.
As these nations faced alternating periods of isolation, colonization, and con-
tact with each other and the West, their forms of art were drastically altered
to incorporate foreign influences and to develop autonomous identities and
cultural independence. Therefore, their artistic practices explore the inher-
ent tension between tradition and modernity within these communities.
Ranging from the prehistoric period to the modern era, and accompanied
by a timeline, bibliography, and glossary of terms, this book raises important
questions for continued debate and study of the art of the Pacific Rim.
Anne D’Alleva is associate professor of art history and women’s studies at the
University of Connecticut. Her books include Look!: The Fundamentals of Art History;
How to Write Art History; and Methods and Theories of Art History.

The Waters of Rome
Aqueducts, Fountains, and the Birth of the Baroque City
Katherine Wentworth Rinne
In this pioneering study of the water infrastructure of Renaissance Rome,
urban historian Katherine Rinne offers a new understanding of how techno-
logical and scientific developments in aqueduct and fountain architecture
helped turn a medieval backwater into the preeminent city of early mod-
ern Europe. Supported by the author’s extensive topographical research,
this book presents a unified vision of the city that links improvements to
public and private water systems with political, religious, and social change.
Between 1560 and 1630, in a spectacular burst of urban renewal, Rome’s
religious and civil authorities sponsored the construction of aqueducts,
private and public fountains for drinking, washing, and industry, and the
magnificent ceremonial fountains that are Rome’s glory. Tying together the
technological, sociopolitical, and artistic questions that faced the designers
during an age of turmoil in which the Catholic Church found its authority
threatened and the infrastructure of the city was in a state of decay, Rinne
shows how these public works projects transformed Rome in a successful
marriage of innovative engineering and strategic urban planning.
Katherine Wentworth Rinne is an urban designer and historian of
Renaissance and baroque architecture and urbanism. She is adjunct professor in the
department of architecture at the California College of the Arts and associate fellow at the
Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia.

“The Butcher’s Shop” by Annibale Carracci
C. D. Dickerson III
Born in Bologna, Annibale Carracci (1564–1609) was one of the most rev-
olutionary artists of the late Renaissance. Even before turning twenty, he
rebelled against convention by investing his art with a sense of naturalism
uncommon to paintings of the period. His early painting The Butcher’s Shop,
a cherished work in the Kimbell Art Museum’s collection, marks the begin-
ning of Carracci’s artistic journey and remains one of his most powerfully
naturalistic works.
This fascinating study explores the origins and significance of The Butcher’s
Shop, placing it within the artist’s own career as well as the broader con-
text of Italian painting. Detailing the uniqueness and vitality of Carracci’s
style, C. D. Dickerson emphasizes the remarkable plein-air quality of the
painting and explains how Carracci may have achieved this utterly novel ◆◆ Kimbell Masterpiece Series

Neo -avant- garde and Postmodern
Postwar Architecture in Britain and Beyond
Edited by Mark Crinson and Claire Zimmerman
The neo-avant-garde and postmodern movements have long been under-
stood in terms of their re-working of modernism and a narrative emphasizing
rupture and new beginnings. Compelling continuities between the two,
especially in postwar Britain, suggest that a new account is needed. This
collection of provocative essays discusses the work of architects and their
associates, including Alice and Peter Smithson, Robert Venturi and Denise
Scott Brown, James Stirling, James Gowan, Eduardo Paolozzi, Leon Krier,
Allan Greenberg, Reyner Banham, and Charles Jencks, and explores why
the debate over postwar modernism was especially vocal in Britain.
Essays by sixteen distinguished scholars examine such topics as Brutalism,
pop architecture, 1950s London, the legacy of Mies van der Rohe, housing,
civic architecture, Italian neo-realism, and changing alignments in theory ◆◆ Studies in British Art

Building – in–Time
From Giotto to Alberti and Modern Oblivion
Marvin Trachtenberg
In pre-modern Europe, the architect built not merely with imagination,
brick, and mortar but with time, using vast quantities of duration as the
means to erect monumental buildings that otherwise would have been
impossible to achieve. Virtually all the great cathedrals of Europe were built
under and by this regime, here given the name “Building–in–Time.” It
places in an entirely new light the major works of pre-modern Italy, from the
Pisa cathedral group to the cathedrals of Milan, Venice, and Siena, and from
the monuments of 14th-century Florence to the new St. Peter’s.
In this illuminating book, Marvin Trachtenberg rewrites the history of medi-
eval and Renaissance architecture in Italy and recasts the turn to modernity
in new terms, those of temporality and its role in architectural theory and
practice. Recovering this lost element of the deep architectural past revises
our view of the present: temporality is not a neutral or secondary factor in
modern architecture culture but a condition that affects all production and
experience of the built environment.
Marvin Trachtenberg is Edith Kitzmiller Professor of Art History, Institute of
Fine Arts, New York University. His books include the prize-winning Dominion of the
Eye: Urbanism, Art, and Power in Early Modern Florence and The Campanile of Florence
Cathedral: “Giotto’s Tower.”

Impressionist Children
Childhood, Family, and Modern Identity in French Art
Greg M. Thomas
Images of children and families abound in the works of the French
Impressionists, from Claude Monet’s portraits of his young sons to Mary
Cassatt’s endearing images of mother and child. In Impressionist Children,
Greg M. Thomas offers new perspectives on some of the most famous paint-
ings in art history, explaining how they reflect the dominant social, cultural,
and political aspects of Parisian middle-class life in the late 1800s.
Drawing on letters, children’s books, tourist guidebooks, and 19th-century
texts on child development, parenting, and education, Thomas skillfully
demonstrates how childhood became a crucial theme for its embodiment of
adult ideas about childhood, the family, sexuality, work and leisure, national
culture, and, above all, the formation and reproduction of bourgeois iden-
tity. He discusses paintings, prints, drawings, and sculptures by Impressionist
artists and investigates the influence of popular visual culture—fash-
ion, toys, studio photography, and illustrations in books, magazines, and
park guides—on the Impressionists’ conceptualization of childhood and
family relations.

Tutankhamun’s Funeral
Herbert E. Winlock
Introduction and Appendix by Dorothea Arnold
In 1907, more than a decade before the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb,
archaeologists unearthed remains from the mummification and funeral of
the pharaoh, who ruled ancient Egypt in the 14th century b.c. Now in the
collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, these materials provide
physical evidence of burial rites of the now-legendary king, who is making
headlines once again after new scientific investigations to determine the
cause of his early death.
Tutankhamun’s Funeral includes a classic text written in 1941 by Herbert
E. Winlock, one of the early 20th century’s leading Egyptologists, featuring
in-depth analysis of the objects and their significance. In addition, an intro-
duction and appendix by Dorothea Arnold update the findings with recent

Hendrick Avercamp
Master of the Ice Scene
Edited by Pieter Roelofs
Hendrick Avercamp (1585–1634) was the first artist to specialize in paint-
ing winter landscapes that feature people enjoying themselves on the ice.
Scenes of skating, sleigh rides, and outdoor games on frozen canals and
waterways bring to life the energetic pastimes and day-to-day bustle of the
Golden Age. He made the “ice scene” a genre in its own right. Within these
winter scenes there is also a social narrative: unencumbered by status, all
classes formed one community on the ice, where they went about their daily
business and celebrated the delights of the winter conditions.
For the first time in many years this virtuoso artist receives the attention he
deserves. The authors explore every aspect of Avercamp’s work, from the
weather conditions prevalent at the time to details of the clothes worn by the
figures in his crowded scenes. Avercamp was also an outstanding draftsman Exhibition Schedule:
who made individual figure studies that he utilized not only in his painted National Gallery of Art, Washington
work but also in compositional drawings. 03/21/10
