The sixth volume in Rizzoli´s best-selling series of monographs on the work of Richard Meier, one of America´s most important and acclaimed architects. Richard Meier Architect: Volume 6 comprehensively documents the architect´s work since 2009. This extensively illustrated presentation, designed by renowned graphic artist Massimo Vignelli, vividly conveys the purity and power of Meier´s unique and celebrated vision. Thirty residential, commercial, and civic projects are featured, including new residential complexes in Italy, Japan, Israel, and Turkey; private homes in the United States, Switzerland, Italy, and Luxembourg; a public plaza in Germany; a U.S. courthouse and a clubhouse in China; and other projects in Mexico, Canada, Brazil, India, South Korea, and France. The development and significance of Meier´s work is discussed in an essay by the distinguished architectural historian Kenneth Frampton. The architect himself contributes a preface that provides a fascinating glimpse into his thought processes and working methods. A biographical chronology and selected bibliography complete this lavish monograph on a modern American master.
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.
