-- Identity colour codes BIS Publishers, 2014. Paperback with flaps, 210x150mm, 304p, English edition, Fine copy. Including an index. ISBN: 9789063693350 Identity Colour Codes is the 100visual result of a thorough study into corporate and social identity. Corporate identities are traditionally based on exclusiveness and their symbols are privately owned. However, in these times of social media, open source and open design, it is the more generic and public domain elements that shape social identities.
In search of the most accessible common denominator in identity, the author selected colour as the vehicle through which people easily and globally connect. This publication collects 100 of these colour-based identity codes, each labelled with a specific name, indicating the values and meanings that the colour transmits.

-- Masterpieces of the Kolowrat picture gallery in Rychnov nad Kn??nou Národní galerie Praha, 2009. Paperback,118 pages illustrated. ISBN: 9788070354322 The Kolowrat-Krakowsky Libsteinsky family collection in Rychnov nad Kn??nou is one of the major assemblages to have been amassed in Bohemia by members of the aristocracy. Painting collections were a typical manifestation of the central European cultural structure in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Kolowrat collection arose in the course of the 18th century. When the Picture Gallery of the Society of Patriotic Friends of Arts (the predecessor of today?s National Gallery in Prague) was established in 1796, the Kolowrats generously loaned their best Rychnov paintings to the Prague-based organisation. They remained on loan to the Picture Gallery of the Society of Patriotic Friends of Arts until 1872, after which all the paintings were returned to Rychnov Chateau. After February 1948, the art collection was nationalized, and the Kolowrats did not get it back until 1992 under the restitution law. The collection, today enriched by targeted acquisitions, consists of almost 400 paintings. The National Gallery in Prague?s selection showcases artworks testifying to the picture gallery?s character and genre composition. The exhibition contains works by Hans von Aachen, Cornelis Norbert Gysbrechts, Georg Hinz or Michael Pacher. The other paintings by Dutch, Flemish, Italian and central European masters remain on display in the chateau in Rychnov nad Kn??nou, which is open to the public.

-- THE TROUBLE WITH WOMEN ARTISTS, Reframing the History of Art Flammarion, 2019. Hardcover, 282 x 212 mm, 160 pages, English edition. ISBN: 9782080203700 Sixty-seven female artists and their work from the sixteenth century to the present demonstrate the evolution of art through a female-empowered lens. The history of art has been forever considered, written, published, and taught by men, primarily for a male audience. For women, the mere possibility of becoming an artist?to have access to the necessary materials, to produce, exhibit, and, against all odds, succeed and sustain the activity?has been an incessant, dangerous, and exhausting fight?physically, mentally, and psychologically. The time has come to reframe the history of art in the context of the brave women who had the courage to defy all rules in order to pursue their vocation and carve out their place in the art world. This book draws the portraits of sixty-seven fascinating woman and their significant artistic achievements, from groundbreaking Renaissance painter Artemisia Gentileschi to the photography of Nan Goldin today. Tracing the painters, sculptors, photographers, and performance artists who shaped modern art, readers discover key figures and their signature works, including Mary Cassatt, Sonia Delaunay, Georgia O'Keefe, Tamara de Lempicka, Frida Kahlo, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington, Yoko Ono, Eva Hesse, Marina Abramovic, Carrie Mae Weems, and Cindy Sherman. Exploring the codes and archetypes of art history, this celebration of women in art analyzes their slow but steady achievement of artistic independence and the hard-won recognition for their creative work in a domain historically reserved for men.

A. A. Jordan; Visualizing Kingship in the Windows of the Sainte-Chapelle, Turnhout, Brepols, 2002. Hardback, approx. 300 p., 87 b/w ill., 215 x 280 mm. ISBN: 9782503511849 Jordan?s work employs medieval understandings of narrative theory and practice to demonstrate a coherent and intertextual story of kingship in the windows? implicit antiphonal invocation of Biblical heroes and Capetian monarchy. This study of the spectacular ensemble of windows of the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris- the first in-depth examination of the glass in nearly half a century- asks the question, "are the scenes depicted in the stained glass comprehensible as story?" Through an exhaustive study of textual and visual restoration records and extant authentic panels, Jordan posits reconstructions of the chapel?s large-scale windows as they would have appeared in the 13th century. Jordan?s work employs medieval understandings of narrative theory and practice to demonstrate a coherent and intertextual story of kingship in the windows? implicit antiphonal invocation of Biblical heroes and Capetian monarchy. Each chapter examines a formal aspect of the narratives depicted in the windows and elucidates it through comparison with similar techniques employed in medieval literature and articulated in the ars poetriae, rhetorical treatises devoted to the theory and practice of medieval storytelling. In the final chapter Jordan draws on both the narrative devices employed in the biblical windows and the evidence of her reconstuctions to argue for a new identification of the so-called Relics window as a "Royal" window chronicling the history of the kings of France. Jordan convincingly demonstrates that, far from a cacophonous assemblage of images, the Sainte-Chapelle glass adeptly employs a variety of fashionable narrative devices, and proposes that the chapel?s Old Testament windows were "manipulated in such a way as to craft from the biblical narratives a visual essay on kingship that articulates the foremost components of French medieval monarchic rule and the specifically Capetian claims to sacral kingship." In both its theoretical scope and the originality of its reconstructions of the windows, Visualizing Kingship provides an important contribution to Art History and intellectual history more generally.

A. Diels The Shadow of Rubens : Print Publishing in 17th-Century Antwerp. Turnhout, Brepols. Hardback, original editor's jacket, english, VIII+271 pp., 279 b/w ill., 225 x 305 mm. ISBN: 9781905375509 The Print Collection of the Royal Library of Belgium (HMPCRLB 2). This book presents resents both an overview of the print production in the 17th century Southern Low Countries and a focused approach to the work of three collaborators of Rubens. Apart from their work as painters, these artists quickly penetrated the world of prints and each dominated a specific market segment. Abraham Van Diepenbeeck was a prolific designer of individual prints and print series. Erasmus Quelinus II often drew models for book-illustrations. Cornelis Schut ran an important workshop which produced many beautiful etchings. The book explores how these artists positioned themselves in an artistic field, operating in a highly competitive field that presented both threats and new opportunities. Their oeuvre is firmly set in a European context, spanning local, regional and international markets. An analysis is made of the relation between prints as reproductions of paintings and prints as autonomous inventions. The book argues that the importance of prints as autonomous creations has been underestimated for the 17th century. The book studies the connections between the three artists and some forty professional engravers who were active in 17th-century Antwerp. Many biographical data on these engravers are presented, and more than 100 prints are published for the first time. Booknumber: 25867 | Price: EUR 129.00 Add to cart

A. Kostenevich. Impressionisme. Sensatie en Inspiratie. Favorieten uit de Hermitage. Amsterdam, De Nieuwe Kerk - Hermitage A'dam, 2012. Paperback, 265pp., 24x28cm., ills. in kleur. Nieuw. ISBN: 9789078653318 Hermitage Museum, Amsterdam Expo: 16/6/2012 - 13/1/2013 - Zouden Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir en Alfred Sisley hebben voorzien hoe beroemd en invloedrijk hun werk zou worden? Dat het impressionisme zou uitgroeien tot een van de meest geliefde kunststromingen aller tijden? De voortekenen waren verre van gunstig. Hun werkwijzen en opvattingen gingen regelrecht in tegen de heersende academische traditie en schokten de starre Franse kunstwereld. De kleurrijke en vaak in de openlucht geschilderde werken werden fel bekritiseerd. Een Parijse kunstcriticus sprak in 1874 spottend van 'les impressionistes'. Het werd hun geuzennaam.Dit boek brengt de impressionisten samen met hun voorgangers, tijdgenoten en navolgers. De rijke collectie van de Hermitage in St.-Petersburg biedt de gelegenheid om meesterwerken van Monet, Renoir en Pissarro te plaatsen naast werk van de gevestigde namen uit hun tijd, zoals Delacroix, Gerome en Corot, en naast dat van navolgers als Gauguin en Cezanne. Gezamenlijk geven de schilderijen, sculpturen en tekeningen een beeld van vijf decennia Franse kunst en van de impressionisten in hun tijd. Tevens schenkt het boek aandacht aan alle schilderijen die de Hermitage bezit van Vincent van Gogh. Deze werken mogen niet reizen en kunnen dus niet in Amsterdam tentoongesteld worden, maar zijn in dit boek alle afgebeeld en beschreven. Booknumber: 36376 | Price: EUR 29.95 Add to cart

A. Massing; Harvey Miller. Painting Restoration before - La Restauration - The Origins of the Profession in France, Turnhout, Brepols, 2012. Hardback, 320 p., 240 b/w ill., 23,8 x 28. ISBN: 9781905375349 During the latter half of the eighteenth century, especially the period around and just after the French Revolution, what was happening in France in the field of painting restoration influenced all of Europe. In 1750 the museum in the Luxembourg Palace in Paris was opened to the public, and it became necessary to display to the public paintings which had been in storage for years. In the following decades King Louis XVI and his advisor, the Comte d'Angiviller, developed and enlarged the national collection of paintings. And with this came the need for painting restorers doing quality work - more than just the quick repairs as done by painters in the past - and several full-time painting restorers were employed. By the time the museum in the Louvre was opened to the public in 1793, in the midst of the French Revolution, the profession had been established. During the latter half of the eighteenth century, painting restoration techniques improved and French restorers began to travel to England and to other European countries more frequently, spreading their practical knowledge - especially about the lining and transfer of paintings. In Paris, a national concours was prepared to choose the most capable from a growing group of candidates, and in 1802 plans were drafted for a school of restoration. In this book the lives and careers of several of the more well-documented painting restorers for the French Royal Collection are traced one-by-one - including as much as possible about their restoration techniques.

A. Stones Gothic Manuscripts: 1260-1320. Part One Brepols - Harvey Miller, 2013. Hardcover. 2 vol., 1130 p., 838 b/w ill. 77 colour ill., 230 x 330 mm, Languages: English, Including an index. Fine copy. ISBN: 9781872501956 This book traces the cultural context of book illustration, its production, owners, and makers in the various regions of France in the last third of the thirteenth and beginning of the fourteenth centuries. The period c. 1260-1320 marks the emergence and the flowering of what has come to be known as the ?courtly style? in French painting, whose dynamic vitality is manifest throughout the region we now call France. By the end of this period French art had assimilated a rich variety of regional works and styles. New texts had been introduced to a range of patrons, and patterns to be played out in the following centuries were in place. This book traces the cultural context of book illustration, its production, owners, and makers in the various regions of France in the last third of the thirteenth and beginning of the fourteenth centuries. While the royal, courtly, academic and ecclesiastical patrons were critical to the cultural and artistic production of the capital, books made in provincial centres manifest an independence and originality that can be attributed to fruitful interaction with neighbouring cultures?the linguistic, literary, and artistic traditions of England in the north and west, Navarre, Aragon, the county of Barcelona and the Kingdom of Majorca in the Pyrenean regions, and the Empire along the eastern borders, from the principalities of North Italy and the Alpine regions to Burgundy, Hainaut and Flanders. Ecclesiastical boundaries cut across political divisions, contributing different sets of allegiances that impacted upon book culture in other ways. The Provinces of Reims and Tarantaise included fiefs of Empire, while Narbonne (to 1317) encompassed dioceses in Aragon, and the Provinces of Bordeaux and Tours lay in part in lands held by the English. The religious orders and the universities offered other sets of governing structures and vehicles of influence and reception. Royal and courtly patrons took their place in this period alongside churchmen and women and layfolk from the burgeoning bourgeois class, many of whom are known from ownership notes or inventories. Yet some of the finest books of the period were made for people whose identity remains obscure. Similarly the names of craftsmen?scribes, decorators, illuminators?are often known from their signatures in the books they made or from payments and other records, yet many distinguished works are the products of anonymous creators. These years witnessed an explosition in the range of texts that were deemed worthy of illustraton, extending far beyond the usual liturgical and devotional material to include works of science, medicine, law, philosophy, history and literature in verse and prose, offering a wealth of material for comparative study which is only beginning to be exploited in modern scholarship. This book is organized according to production in regional centres based on stylistic analysis and by comparative tables of the illustration of liturgical and devotional books, and a selection of romances, legal and historical works. Part 1 comprises the Introduction, the Lists of the Producers (scribes, illuminators and decorators) and Patrons whose names are known, followed by a Catalogue of Manuscripts made in the North (Paris and the Province of Sens, Normandy, the Province of Reims). Part 2 contains the Catalogue of Manuscripts made in the East, South-East, South-West, West and Centre, followed by the Comparative Tables and Index of Manuscripts Cited.

A. V. Gunn The Prints of Paul Sandby (1731-1809): A Catalogue Raisonne The Prints of Paul Sandby Harvey Miller, 2015. Bound, cloth with dustjacket, IV+339 p., 84 b/w ill. + 444 colour ill., 300 x 240 mm.
. ISBN: 9781909400160
Born in Nottingham, Paul Sandby (1731-1809) is best known as a founder member of the Royal Academy and a prominent figure in the development of British watercolour painting. However, he was also one of the most prolific and inventive printmakers in eighteenth-century Britain. From his early years as a draughtsman for the military survey of Scotland, and later from his extensive tours throughout England and Wales, he depicted the people, towns, castles and landscapes of the nation. He provided the public with images of their country which contributed to the emerging appreciation of native landscape, to antiquarian interests, and to the development of picturesque tours within the British Isles. Although he never travelled abroad, he reproduced the work of fellow artists who had, tapping into the Grand Tour market with prints of Ionian antiquities, Neapolitan landscapes and the Roman carnival. But his work encompassed more than landscape; he could move from the pastoral humour of illustrations to Allan Ramsay?s poem The Gentle Shepherd, through the urban realism of his Cries of London to the merciless satire of his attacks on William Hogarth. From the 1740s to the 1780s he made over 380 prints: engravings, etchings, soft ground etchings and finally aquatints, a medium in which he was a pioneer. Aquatint enabled printmakers to reproduce the effects of watercolour paintings; Sandby gave the process its name and developed varied techniques which allowed the exact reproduction of the artist?s brush strokes, producing some of the most beautiful prints ever made in this medium.

Paperback, IV+227 p., 24 b/w ill., 160 x 240 mm. ISBN: 9782503519166 L'imaginaire ne se reduit pas au chimerique, au non-etre. Depuis l'Antiquite, artistes, poetes et philosophes pressentent qu'il procede du desir et appartient en premier lieu au registre de l'individuel : forces pulsionnelles, messages de soi a soi, le reve et bientot la creation n'ont pas attendu le discours de la psychanalyse ou des diverses sciences de la culture pour forger leurs mondes autour de la realite partagee. Les societes a leur tour se sont lancees par cette voie dans la quete de leur identite et ont assigne a leurs mythes le soin d'exprimer leur structure. Pour autant, le lecteur s'apercevra au fil des douze communications assemblees ci-apres que les royautes evoquees ressortissent rarement du pur imaginaire et conservent jalousement un lien organique avec leur referent concret. Il conviendrait davantage de parler de la royaute comme objet d'imagination, en ce qu'elle represente le point de fixation supreme du desir. Languages : French.

Voici une histoire du sang royal au feminin. De 1270 a la fin du XIVe siecle, le statut des princesses royales en France est en cours de normalisation. Les filles du roi sont progressivement exclues du trone, des apanages et de la pairie. Mais la canonisation de Louis IX et la valorisation du lignage royal renforcent leur prestige. Elles obtiennent, sinon un patrimoine, du moins un rang specifique et la reconnaissance d?une qualite. Elles ont aussi un role important dans la construction de la memoire de saint Louis et dans la diffusion de son culte. Au cours de cette periode, la conscience dynastique passe par une celebration des rois defunts, mais aussi de leurs parents, hommes et femmes. C?est un domaine dans lequel la presence feminine est acceptee aux cotes de celle des princes, du fait des liens etroits entre les parentes du roi et le sacre. Languages : French.

Albert Niemeyer, Ingrid de Kruyff Albert Niemeyer (R)evolution Stichting Kunstboek. 24 x 17 cm, 224 p., 150 illustraties,tweetalig Nederlands/Engels, Fine copy. Including an index. ISBN: 9789058564115 Albert Niemeyer timmert al ruim dertig jaar op eigenzinnige wijze aan zijn weg in de Nederlandse kunstwereld. Gefascineerd door de ongelimiteerde vrijheid van expressie in het werk van Van Gogh, Dali, Chagall, Picasso en Karel Appel, schildert Niemeyer zijn personages nu eens met een fotografisch realisme, dan weer abstract expressionistisch of met een hint naar het kubisme en futurisme. Vrijheid is een begrip dat Albert zeer hoog in het vaandel draagt, niet alleen qua stijl en thematiek, maar ook in zijn eigen schilderkunstige ontwikkeling. Toen de vraag naar Niemeyers werken in de jaren ?80 explodeerde en zijn creaties hun weg naar zowel particuliere als bedrijfscollecties vonden, bleef de kunstenaar trouw aan zichzelf en zijn idealen. Tijdloze kwaliteit brengen, dat is zijn doel. Creativiteit primeert. Het typeert Niemeyer als kunstenaar: eigenzinnig, oprecht, indringend, expressief, onderzoekend en altijd in ontwikkeling.
