It's been over a decade since New York City hosted a new Dale Chihuly exhibition. Featuring the artist's latest, dynamic glass sculptures on display at The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG), this book proves that it was worth the wait. Filled with panoramic vistas of garden landscapes transformed by Chihuly glass, this dazzling celebration of the artist's brilliant use of form and color reveals the perfect union between Chihuly's organic shapes and their natural settings. New hand-blown glass sculptures complement the architecture of NYBG's Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, itself considered a work of glass art. In addition to photographs of the site-specific installations, this book features a series of dynamic drawings by Chihuly. As fluid and colorful as the sculptures themselves, these works offer a direct representation of the energy and inspiration behind Chihuly's artistic process. This volume and the exhibition it accompanies show how the Tiffany of our time has brought the art of glass-blowing and sculpting into the forefront of American art, introducing generations of people of all ages to the magic and beauty of glass.Published in association with The New York Botanical Garden.

The years between the Revolution of 1848 and the end of World War II were characterised by profound social, intellectual, and political change in France. The art world, centred in Paris, also witnessed remarkable transformations as artists experimented with bold, expressive styles. Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism...All emerged in and around the French capital during this period, and had profound impacts on the Western artistic canon. This splendid volume featuring 59 works from the Brooklyn Museum's renowned European collection, celebrates France as the artistic centre of international modernism from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. Ranging widely in scale, subject matter, and style, these paintings and sculptures were produced by the era's leading artists, both French-born and others who studied and worked in France. The 47 artists represented include Bonnard, Caillebotte, Cezanne, Chagall, Degas, Matisse, Monet, Redon, Renoir, and Rodin.Organised into four sections, the works in this book exemplify the successive avant-garde movements that defined modern art in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, tracing a shift from naturalism to the rise of abstraction. Chapters on 'Landscape, ' 'Still Life, ' 'Portraits and Figures, ' and 'The Nude, ' invite the reader to discover comparisons and contrasts across time and mediums.

This enlightening and thought-provoking look at New York City's postwar art scene focuses on the galleries and the artists that helped transform American art. While the achievements of New York City's most renowned postwar artists--de Kooning, Pollock, Rothko, Franz Kline-- have been studied in depth, a large cadre of lesser-known but influential artists came of age between 1952 and 1965. Also understudied are the early, experimental works by more well- known figures such as Mark di Suvero, Jim Dine, Dan Flavin, and Claes Oldenburg. Focusing on innovative artist-run galleries, this book invites readers to reevaluate the period--uncovering its diversity, creativity, and nuances, and tracing the spaces' influence during the decades that followed. Inventing Downtown charts the development of artist-run galleries in Lower Manhattan from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s, showing how the area's multicultural spirit played a major role in shaping the artworks exhibited there. The book explores 14 key spaces in which styles such as Pop, Minimalism, and performance and installation art thrived. Excerpts from 33 revealing interviews with artists, critics, and dealers, conducted by Billy KluÌ ver and Julie Martin, offer unique personal insight into the era's creative milieu. Taken together, the book's essays and interviews provide a distinctly new assessment of how downtown New York's fertile environment nurtured an innovative art scene.

Origin: Amsterdam, Netherlands. Recently I met a soldier who is a member of the special sniper unit of the International Criminal Court here in The Netherlands. Questioning the price for my freedom I accepted his offer to join him at the indoor shooting range. I was curious about how to deal with shooting with a rifle and a handgun. I was surprised to experience and enjoy the soberness of a physical workout and the immense respect I felt for the bullet, not the gun. Drawing the parts of an up to its items dismantled revolver with the trigger and the bold looking like bunnies I visualise my confrontation and inner observations during my encounter with the bullet and the gun. By transferring the drawings and text into carefully chosen recycled news prints I put my personal encounter into the context of current threads of social unrest, terrorist attacks and jingoism--Artist's statement, Booklyn Bookseller's website.

New York is a town of more quartiers and arondissements than Paris, more souks and bazaars than Cairo, a place of havens from overwhelming energy and of studios where that energy is generated. Above all else, it is where everyone wants to make a mark. And for a lot of residents the biggest mark of all is the place they live in - no matter where that is in the infinite diversity of the astonishing tumbling ziggurat that is New York. This book looks at a cross-section of these thrilling spaces for living created by New Yorkers. Ranging from the great mansions of the Upper East Side to the Tribeca loft that provides a live-work space for the high-flying architects of MPA, from the glamour of Kenneth Lane's Murray Hill apartment to Susan Sheehan's Arts and Crafts haven in Union Square, from Hamish Bowles's 'tiny Atlantis' in Greenwich Village to James Fenton's fantasy palace in Harlem, from the ivory tower that is the Modulightor Building in Midtown Manhattan to Miranda Brooks's 'garden in the city' in Brooklyn, this is a visual and literary feast of the marvellous houses and apartments of New York.

During the 19th century, New York City's grand mansions on Fifth and Madison Avenues boasted sumptuous interiors, often with each room decorated in a different historic style. Financier, art collector, and philanthropist Henry Gurdon Marquand famously commissioned eminent British painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912) to create the Greco-Pompeian music room for his home. This beautiful publication documents and examines the celebrated design, which included an elaborately decorated Steinway grand piano, a large suite of matching furniture, and an embroidery scheme for the upholstery and coordinated curtains. Alma-Tadema secured Frederic Leighton to create a major painting for the room's ceiling and Sir Edward Poynter to paint the piano's fallboard. One of Alma-Tadema's most famous paintings, A Reading from Homer, was painted for this room. For the first time since Marquand's death in 1902, the contents of this exceptional room have been brought together and considered in light of Marquand's patronage, Alma-Tadema's career, the firm that manufactured the furniture, and the social function of the music room.
