Madonna of the Apes
Fred Taylor, a veteran of unspecified clandestine services that have caused him to spend hard times in Southeast Asia, finds himself at loose ends in Boston. A late-night chance encounter in the city's Beacon Hill area throws his lot in with eccentric art collector Clayton Reed. Reed has been tricked by a young man as unscrupulous as he is ignorant into examining and considering for purchase a collection of paintings whose presence in the U.S. seems, at best, informal. Fred, sensing Reed's navet in matters of personal security, volunteers to guarantee that security. At the same time, Reed's acumen as a connoisseur astounds Fred. How could Reed just walk away from the situation with what he later gloatingly describes as a prize worth more than the gross domestic product of Bulgaria? What Reed has purchased appears to be a painting by one of the most important artists of the Italian Renaissance. But is it what it seems? Can The Madonna of the Apes be a forgery? How did it come to be, so quietly, in Boston? These questions propel Reed and Fred into an increasingly murderous tangle, guided only by the assurances of a sequence of art dealers who lie as easily as they withhold the truth about the painting, its true nature, and its history.

A Butterfly in Flame: A Fred Taylor Art Mystery (Fred Taylor Art Mysteries)
Stillton Academy on the coast north of Boston is in trouble. The academy's days are numbered unless extraordinary help arrives. Worse, a Stillton instructor has purportedly dis - appeared with a female first - year student, daughter of the Academy's only significant donor. Two of the trustees travel to Boston where they ask wealthy, intensely secretive art collector Clayton Reed for the services of his employee, Fred Taylor. Fred goes undercover as a member of the faculty and soon discovers conflicting motives and designs among faculty and students, as well as a board of trustees whose interest in the long - term survival of the operation seems lazy, misguided or - perhaps - a good deal more sinister. Meanwhile, the motives of Taylor's employer remain obscure. What is it that whets his acute acquisitive instincts? He will only say, Trust no one. Look at everything. In sleepy Stillton, a town suspiciously backward, un - exploited, and ripe for development, what hidden treasure is Clayton hoping for? And can Fred find it before the college goes up in flames?

Frederick Carl Frieseke: The Evolution of an American Impressionist
The color-drenched gardens and sun-dappled nudes by Frederick Carl Frieseke (1874-1939) have long been loved by admirers of American Impressionism, and his paintings are treasured in museum collections across the country. This beautiful and comprehensive volume--with more than one hundred color and almost eighty black-and-white plates--is the most ambitious ever devoted to his work. It is being published in conjunction with a major retrospective of the artist's work. A biographical overview and a detailed chronology by the artist's grandson, including charming vintage photographs, provide much new information and correct several misconceptions about Frieseke's life and career. Three invaluable essays by leading scholars discuss the diverse stages of his work and place it in art historical context, detailing his experience as a student at Whistler's atelier in Paris and as a central member of the group of American expatriates who settled in Giverny, France, near the French master Monet. The book's groundbreaking scholarship casts new light on Frieseke, American Impressionism, and the art world at the turn of the last century. The contributors are Nicholas Kilmer, guest curator of the exhibition and the artist's grandson; Virginia M. Mecklenburg, senior curator of painting and sculpture at the Smithsonian American Art Museum; David Sellin, art historian and author of American Painters in Brittany and Normandy; and H. Barbara Weinberg, curator of American painting and sculpture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. EXHIBITION SCHEDULE: The Telfair Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia March 20-June 3, 2001 The Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis June 23-August 19, 2001 San Diego Museum of Art September 8-November 11, 2001 Terra Museum of American Art, Chicago December 8, 2001-February 3, 2002
