Antebellum American Pendant Paintings: New Ways of Looking marks the first sustained study of pendant paintings: discrete images designed as a pair. It opens with a broad overview that anchors the form in the medieval diptych, religious history, and aesthetic theory and explores its cultural and historical resonance in the 19th-century United States. Three case studies examine how antebellum American artists used the pendant format in ways revelatory of their historical moment and the aesthetic and cultural developments in which they partook. The case studies on John Quidor's Rip Van Winkle and His Companions at the Inn Door of Nicholas Vedder (1839) and The Return of Rip Van Winkle (1849) and Thomas Cole's Departure and Return (1837) shed new light on canonical antebellum American artists and their practices. The chapter on Titian Ramsay Peale's Kilauea by Day and Kilauea by Night (1842) presents new material that pushes the geographical boundaries of American art studies toward the Pacific Rim. The book contributes to American art history the study of a characteristic but as yet overlooked format and models for the discipline a new and productive framework of analysis focused on the fundamental yet complex way images work back and forth with one another.

Not rediscovered until the twentieth century, the works of Georges de La Tour retain an aura of mystery. At first sight, his paintings suggest a veritable celebration of light and the visible world, but this is deceptive. The familiarity of visual experience blinds the beholder to a deeper understanding of the meanings associated with vision and the visible in the early modern period. By exploring the representations of light, vision, and the visible in La Tour's works, this interdisciplinary study examines the nature of painting and its artistic, religious, and philosophical implications. In the wake of iconoclastic outbreaks and consequent Catholic call for the revitalization of religious imagery, La Tour paints familiar objects of visible reality that also serve as emblems of an invisible, spiritual reality. Like the books in his paintings, asking to be read, La Tour's paintings ask not just to be seen as visual depictions but to be deciphered as instruments of insight. In figuring faith as spiritual passion and illumination, La Tour's paintings test the bounds of the pictorial image, attempting to depict what painting cannot ultimately show: words, hearing, time, movement, changes of heart. La Tour's emphasis on spiritual insight opens up broader artistic, philosophical, and conceptual reflections on the conditions of possibility of the pictorial medium. By scrutinizing what is seen and how, and by questioning the position of the beholder, his works revitalize critical discussion of the nature of painting and its engagements with the visible world.

The fifteenth-century Italian artist Piero della Francesca painted a familiar world. Roads wind through hilly landscapes, run past farms, sheds, barns, and villages. This is the world in which Piero lived. At the same time, Piero's paintings depict a world that is distant. The subjects of his pictures are often Christian and that means that their setting is the Holy Land, a place Piero had never visited. The Realism of Piero della Francesca studies this paradoxical aspect of Piero's art. It tells the story of an artist who could think of the local churches, palaces, and landscapes in and around his hometown of Sansepolcro as miraculously built replicas of the monuments of Jerusalem. Piero's application of perspective, to which he devoted a long treatise, was meant to convince his contemporaries that his paintings report on things that Piero actually observed. Piero's methodical way of painting seems to have offered no room for his own fantasy. His art looks deliberately style-less. This book uncovers a world in which painting needed to validate itself by cultivating the illusion that it reported on things observed instead of things imagined by the artist. Piero's painting claimed truth in a world of increasing uncertainties. Piero della Francesca tried to introduce a new idea of painting. Based on a methodical application of perspective, his work cultivated the illusion that it reported on things found rather than imagined. Piero's art marked an exception in fifteenth-century culture, with its emphasis on poetic inspiration and the artist's imagination.

"Potok is blind but he makes us see not only the pre-World War Two landscape from which he and his family fled, but also how and why and at what price." --Jay Neugeboren, author of "Max Baer and the Star of David" and "Imagining Robert" "Potok explores the long reach of both his family's 1939 escape from Poland and his own blindness in this thoughtful and elegant memoir." --Elinor Langer, author of "Josephine Herbst" and "A Hundred Little Hitlers." When Andrew Potok was eight he fled with his family from Warsaw, leaving home and business to escape the invading Nazis. The family made it to American, but Andrew's memories of violence, Jew hatred, and betrayal--including that of his father--erupted into nightmares and eventually formed the backdrop of his rich, though at times turbulent, life as an artist and writer. When, late in Andrew's life, a Polish lawyer offers to help him reclaim property in Krakow that was wrongfully inherited by a relative, he and his wife revisit Poland, with its still-virulent anti-Semitism. The visit awakens long-dormant memories and provokes deep reflections on the nature of evil. The ongoing lawsuit becomes emblematic of the book's central theme: There can be no closure for survivors of the Holocaust--no justice for either victims or perpetrators, no compensation, and no forgiveness. Andrew Potok was a successful visual artist until he went blind in his forties. He then turned to writing and published "Ordinary Daylight, Portrait of An Artist Going Blind, " "My Life With Goya, " and "A Matter of Dignity." He lives in Vermont.

This is the compelling account of the life and work of Albert Reuss (1889-1975), a Jewish painter and sculptor who developed a uniquely individual style. Born in Vienna, he emigrated to England in 1938 following Hitler's annexation of Austria. In the process, Reuss lost many members of his family, as well as all his possessions, and the reputation he had built up as an artist in Vienna prior to his departure. Many of his artworks were confiscated by the Nazis. He and his wife Rosa were helped to escape from Vienna by Cornishman and Quaker, John Sturge Stephens. Reuss continued to work as an artist in England, but his style changed dramatically, reflecting the trauma he had suffered. Following his exile, Reuss held numerous solo exhibitions in municipal galleries throughout England and in 1948, he and Rosa moved to Mousehole, Cornwall, where they established the ARRA Gallery. From 1953 to 1973 he held regular one-man shows at the renowned O'Hana Gallery in London. Several provincial galleries hold his work, most notably Newlyn Art Gallery in Cornwall, as do the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Belvedere Gallery and the Albertina in Vienna, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Israel. In researching the life of this intriguing man, Susan Soyinka interviewed many people who knew him, and also retrieved a huge archive on Reuss from Vienna, which included much of his lifetime's correspondence. A most fascinating story emerged of this lonely and isolated artist's struggle to develop his art and to survive, a story full of human drama and tragedy, all set against the background of world historic events. The book includes first-hand accounts of the couple's escape from Vienna, and of their experience as refugees in war-time Britain.

"Né en Russie en 1889, Alexandre Zinoview s'installe à Paris en 1908 au coeur du Montparnasse bohème, côtoyant Picasso, Foujita ou Diego Rivera. Il participe au bouillonnement artistique de l'époque, expose aux Salons, mais est aussi au service de la police secrète tsariste, pour qui il espionne les révolutionnaires russes en exil. Quand éclate la Première Guerre mondiale, Zinoview répond à l'appel de Blaise Cendrars et s'engage comme volontaire. Versé à la Légion étrangère, il part sur le front de Champagne, où il intègrera en 1915 l'Ambulance russe. Son séjour au Corps expéditionnaire russe (1916-1917) bascule avec la révolution en Russie et la mutinerie de La Courtine. Fin 1918, après de longs mois à l'hôpital, Zinoview part aux États-Unis avec une délégation de la Légion promouvoir le dernier emprunt de guerre.' L'armistice le trouve au Canada, angoissé par le retour à la vie civile alors que sa double vie d'agent a été révélée. Artiste éclectique dans ses inspirations, Zinoview s'empare de nombreuses techniques, utilise de multiples supports. Par son art de la composition et les postures de ses personnages, il fait de son expérience de la guerre un authentique théâtre un théâtre personnel où il met en scène sa vision de l'humanité et ses fantasmes, mais aussi le théâtre des opérations, des nationalismes et des passions politiques, celui des souffrances collectives, des émotions singulières et des destins individuels. Ce livre retrace pour la première fois ce destin hors norme et met en lumière un parcours artistique singulier."--Page 4 of cover.

"Alfredo Müller est né à Livourne en 1869 et mort à Paris en 1939. Sa peinture suit les méandres de sa vie, alternativement toscane et parisienne. Après avoir suivi l'enseignement du portraitiste florentin Michele Gordigiani, il découvre la peinture de Monet, avant de connaître Pissarro, Cézanne et Renoir à Paris, où Ambroise Vollard, puis Georges Thomas, Louis Libaude et Paul Rosenberg vendent ses toiles. Ces rencontres, mais aussi son expérience de graveur parisien, marquent sa peinture toscane ultérieure. Puisse le lecteur découvrir la cohérence et l'originalité de l'oeuvre d'un artiste hanté par ses thèmes de prédilection, la théâtralité de l'espace, l'harmonie des corps et de la nature, les faux-semblants dévoilés avec une feinte désinvolture par des masques mélancoliques de Commedia dell'Arte ! Trois ans après le catalogue raisonné de l'oeuvre graphique, ce second volume répertorie les cinq cent vingt peintures à l'huile, sur toile, sur bois, carton ou isorel dénombrées à ce jour. L'introduction des quinze chapitres en trois langues est complétée par le courrier et-la presse. Édition limitée numérotée. H. K."--Page 4 of cover.
