This groundbreaking book, accompanying a major exhibition at the Hirshhorn, tells the story of the evolution of New York s downtown art scene in the 1980s from a DIY counterculture in the East Village to a legitimate gallery business in SoHo. Coinciding with the rise of modern branding and the onset of the information age, artists focus on commodities and consumerism began as satire but came to be much more complex: commodities and associated phenomena, such as advertising, now served as vessels for ideas, politics, and personal relationships in brand-new types of painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and performance. In a book full of visual surprises, newly commissioned essays shed new light on this pivotal period: curator Gianni Jetzer provides a comprehensive overview, while Leah Pires illuminates lesser-known conceptual collaborations, and Bob Nickas offers an eyewitness account of the East Village gallery scene. These texts, together with an illustrated chronology, provide a fresh account of the moment at which contemporary artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Peter Halley, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Sherrie Levine, Richard Prince, and Cindy Sherman grabbed the ball from Andy Warhol and ran with it, changing the rules of the game forever.

The Poetry of Nature offers an in-depth look at more than 40 extraordinary Japanese paintings that represent every major school and movement of the Edo period, including Kano, Rinpa, Nanga, Zen, Maruyama-Shijo, and Ukiyo-e. The unifying theme is a celebration of the natural world, expressed in varied forms, from the bold, graphic manner of Rinpa to the muted sensitivity of Nanga. Among the artists whose works are included are Ike Taiga (1723-1776), Maruyama Okyo (1733-1795), and Sakai Hoitsu (1761-1828). John T. Carpenter looks specifically at the intertwinement of painting and poetry, a Japanese artistic tradition that reached new heights during the Edo period. In addition to new readings and translations of Japanese and Chinese poems, Carpenter sheds light on the ways in which Edo artists used verse to transform their paintings into a hybrid literary and visual art.

Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni recounts her experience working in Andy Warhol's Studio, and explores Warhol's influence - during his life and forever after - on the art world, pop culture, society, and fashion, and how his iconic status gave rise to some of our most influential tastemakers today. From the behind-the-scenes conflict and disagreements over his personal possessions and art inventory, to the record-breaking auction of his belongings and publication of his diaries, Fraser-Cavassoni had a front seat.

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.

Nicole and John Dintenfass collection, well known and whose pieces have been reproduced in many publications, is based on aesthetics.They have collected with passion, diligence, depth and rigor monumental sculptures and wooden miniatures, from most regions of Africa. Focusing on pieces of the highest artistic quality, this book shares the collectors personal point of view about collecting and offers to readers anecdotes that offer an additional insight of this world to future and present collectors in their search for African art. Collecting is a passion that often leads to intimate inner conversations or to emotional experiences with the objects themselves. Moreover many collectors share their unique experience of joy and appreciation with 20th century artists who also collected African art and who generously imparted advice, suggestions and support in responding to the collector's enthusiasm. Thanks to the multiple beautiful and sensitive photographs for each object the viewer has a chance to form an intimate conversation that goes back to contact with those African master carvers that have strongly influenced modern realism, Cubism and Expressionism.

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.
