Contemporary Art: A Very Short Introduction
€ 10.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Contemporary art has never been so popular, but what is its role today and who is controlling its future? Contemporary art is supposed to be a realm of freedom where artists shock, break taboos, flout generally received ideas, and switch between confronting viewers with works of great emotional profundity and jaw-dropping triviality. But away from shock tactics in the gallery, there are many unanswered questions. Who is really running the art world? What effect has America´s growing political and cultural dominance had on art? Here Julian Stallabrass takes us inside the international art world to answer these and other controversial questions, and to argue that behind contemporary art´s variety and apparent unpredictability lies a grim uniformity. Its mysteries are all too easily explained, its depths much shallower than they seem. Contemporary art seeks to bamboozle its viewers while being the willing slave of business and government. This book is your antidote and will change the way you see contemporary art.

Excerpt from Coin Bulletin, Vol. 7: March-April 1929 After arriving in Porto Rico and looking over the City of San Juan, I started after coins. I already knew of a few collectors and met one of them, the manager of the Electric Light Company. As my time was short I did not have an opportunity to see any real collections but by inquiry I learned of a gentleman who had a Pillar Dollar of the Mexico Mint which he thought to be quite valuable. I thanked him for showing it to me and continued my quest. Then I found four three dollar gold pieces dated 1874 for which the owner asked $28; he also had some California gold quarters and halves but I did not buy anything.

John Singer Sargent: The Later Portraits; Compl...
€ 78.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This sumptuous book is the third volume of the definitive catalogue raisonne of the work of the American painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925). Comprising over two hundred portraits and portrait sketches in oil and watercolor painted between 1900 and the artist´s death in 1925, this book completes the trilogy of portrait volumes. The catalogued works have been grouped into two chronological sections, each with an introduction that sets the particular group in context. There is also a section of undated portraits and an appendix listing previously unrecorded works. Each work is documented in depth: entries include traditional data about the painting or watercolor; details of the work´s provenance, exhibition history, and bibliography; a short biography of the sitter; a discussion of the circumstances in which the work was created; and a critical discussion of its subject matter, style, and significance in Sargent´s career. Most of the works are reproduced in color. There is also an illustrated inventory of Sargent´s studio props and accessories and a cross-referenced checklist of the portraits in which they appear.
