1. À travers Paris [2018]

Book
173 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 29 cm
"Dans les dernières années de sa vie, Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) travaille à un livre sur Paris, la ville qu'il a choisi d'habiter et dans laquelle il déambule inlassablement. Commande de son ami l'éditeur Tériade, Paris sans fin ne paraîtra qu'après la mort de l'artiste, en 1969. À travers Paris réunit pour la première fois les dessins réalisés en marge de ces planches, sur des motifs identiques et dans les techniques les plus variées: crayon, stylo-bille ou encre. Le Paris que Giacometti explore de jour et de nuit se déploie en cercles concentriques à partir de son atelier, situé dans le quartier de Montparnasse. Ses proches, ses amis intellectuels et artistes, les cafés qu'il fréquente, mais aussi les rues et les passants sont ses sujets de prédilection. Les dessins réunis dans cet ouvrage sont tous issus de la collection de la Fondation Giacometti, Paris, et pour la plupart inédits."--Page 4 of cover.

A major work destined to change how scholars and students look at television and animation With the release of author Thomas Lamarre\u2019s field-defining study The Anime Machine, critics established Lamarre as a leading voice in the field of Japanese animation. He now returns with The Anime Ecology, broadening his insights to give a complete account of anime\u2019s relationship to television while placing it within important historical and global frameworks. Lamarre takes advantage of the overlaps between television, anime, and new media-from console games and video to iOS games and streaming-to show how animation helps us think through television in the contemporary moment. He offers remarkable close readings of individual anime while demonstrating how infrastructures and platforms have transformed anime into emergent media (such as social media and transmedia) and launched it worldwide. Thoughtful, thorough illustrations plus exhaustive research and an impressive scope make The Anime Ecology at once an essential reference book, a valuable resource for scholars, and a foundational textbook for students.

This catalogue accompanies an exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery, which is the first dedicated to the graphic oeuvre of Antoine Caron (1521-1599). Bringing together a core group of drawings centred around the figures and deeds of the French Royal family, the Valois, this display highlights the role played by Catherine de' Medici (1519-1589). Featuring the Valois series, a set of drawings here reunited for the first time, the display showcases the way in which the powerful and influential Catherine promoted the success of her regency and future of her progeny by delivering a series of lavish courtly events that were meant to enhance the power and diplomacy of her family. The drawings represent jousts, tournaments, festivals and a mock naval battle, events that occurred at the French court during the reigns of Catherine's sons Charles IX and Henri III. Preparatory designs for a group of tapestries, these visual documents relate to actual events that were organised by the court, some of which took place at the French castles of Anet, Palace of Fontainebleau, Bayonne and at the Tuileries Gardens in Paris. Minutely designed, they thus allow a reconstruction of the visual testimony of those events, as they were documented in written contemporary sources.

The first book highlighting the historical roots and contemporary implications of the silhouette as an American art form Before the advent of photography in 1839, Americans were consumed by the fashion for silhouette portraits. Economical in every sense, the small, stark profiles cost far less than oil paintings and could be made in minutes. Black Out, the first major publication to focus on the development of silhouettes, gathers leading experts to shed light on the surprisingly complex historical, political, and social underpinnings of this ostensibly simple art form. In its examination of portraits by acclaimed silhouettists, such as Auguste Edouart and William Bache, this richly illustrated volume explores likenesses of everyone from presidents and celebrities to everyday citizens and enslaved people. Ultimately, the book reveals how silhouettes registered the paradoxes of the unstable young nation, roiling with tensions over slavery and political independence. Primarily tracing the rise of the silhouette in the decades leading up to the Civil War, Black Out also considers the ubiquity of the genre today, particularly in contemporary art. Using silhouettes to address such themes as race, identity, and the notion of the digital self, the four featured living artists--Kara Walker, Kristi Malakoff, Kumi Yamashita, and Camille Utterback-all take the silhouette to unique and fascinating new heights. Presenting the distinctly American story behind silhouettes, Black Out vividly delves into the historical roots and contemporary interpretations of this evocative, ever popular form of portraiture. Exhibition Schedule: National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C., May 11, 2018 - March 10, 2019.

This book explores the development of the Chinese animation film industry from the beginning of China's reform process up to the present. It discusses above all the relationship between the communist state's policies to stimulate "creative industries", concepts of creativity and aesthetics, and the creation and maintenance , through changing circumstances, of a national style by Chinese animators. The book also examines the relationship between Chinese animation, changing technologies including the rise first of television and then of digital media, and youth culture, demonstrating the importance of Chinese animation in Chinese youth culture in the digital age.

Known as the master of French Romanticism for his energetic paintings, Eug ne Delacroix (1798-1863) was also a consummate draftsman. This handsome book, one of the few to explore this topic in depth, provides new insight into Delacroix's drawing practice, paying particular attention to his materials and techniques and the ways in which the artist pushed the boundaries of the medium. The remarkable group of nearly 130 drawings featured here, many of which have been rarely seen, include academic and anatomical studies, sketches from nature, and preparatory drawings related to many of Delacroix's most renowned canvases, among them The Massacre at Chios and Liberty Leading the People.

""L'image antijuive fonctionne comme un miroir : l'antisémite accuse sa cible de ses propres ambitions, de sa propre barbarie : alors que les nazis veulent conquérir l'Europe, la propagande se focalise sur le "Juif monde" ; alors que les nazis exterminent les Juifs, ils sont décrits comme voulant détruire l'Allemagne et la civilisation ; alors que les nazis spolient et exproprient les Juifs, le dessinateur prête aux Juifs une richesse et une puissance inégalées ; alors que les nazis assassinent les Juifs, l'image antisémite les montre on ne peut plus vivants... Les images antisémites ne parlent pas des Juifs, mais de ce que sont les antisémites eux-mêmes, de leurs trois grandes obsessions : le pouvoir, l'argent et l'identité (la race). Dans cette période de guerre, la barbarisation graphique du visage du Juif imaginaire traduit cette radicalisation de l'antisémitisme vers la totale déshumanisation des Juifs, vers son absolue négation." Ce livre est publié à l'initiative du Mémorial de Caen et a été coordonné par son directeur général, Stéphane Grimaldi, et Guillaume Doizy, historien de la caricature. Il est le produit de la collaboration de plusieurs historiens avec Arthur Langerman, soucieux de faire connaître sa collection, unique au monde."--Page 4 of cover.

Published in partnership with the Library of Congress, Drawn to Purpose: American Women Illustrators and Cartoonists presents an overarching survey of women in American illustration, from the late nineteenth into the twenty-first century. Martha H. Kennedy brings special attention to forms that have heretofore received scant notice--cover designs, editorial illustrations, and political cartoons--and reveals the contributions of acclaimed cartoonists and illustrators, along with many whose work has been overlooked. Featuring over 250 color illustrations, including eye-catching original art from the collections of the Library of Congress, Drawn to Purpose provides insight into the personal and professional experiences of eighty women who created these works. Included are artists Roz Chast, Lynda Barry, Lynn Johnston, and Jillian Tamaki. The artists' stories, shaped by their access to artistic training, the impact of marriage and children on careers, and experiences of gender bias in the marketplace, serve as vivid reminders of social change during a period in which the roles and interests of women broadened from the private to the public sphere. The vast, often neglected, body of artistic achievement by women remains an important part of our visual culture. The lives and work of the women responsible for it merit much further attention than they have received thus far. For readers who care about cartooning and illustration, Drawn to Purpose provides valuable insight into this rich heritage.

This book is the first history of British animated cartoons, from the earliest period of cinema in the 1890s up to the late 1920s. In this period cartoonists and performers from earlier traditions of print and stage entertainment came to film to expand their artistic practice, bringing with them a range of techniques and ideas that shaped the development of British animation. These were commercial rather than avant-garde artists, but they nevertheless saw the new medium of cinema as offering the potential to engage with modern concerns of the early 20th century, be it the political and human turmoil of the First World War or new freedoms of the 1920s. Cook's examination and reassessment of these films and their histories reveals their close attention and play with the way audiences saw the world. As such, this book offers new insight into the changing understanding of vision at that time as Britain's place in the world was reshaped in the early 20th century.
