Alice Trumbull Mason
A groundbreaking artist, Alice Trumbull Mason (1904-1971) was one of the earliest painters of the twentieth century to embrace abstract painting in America. Mason's early paintings have been compared to those of Gorky, Kandinsky, and Miro, and in 1936 she became a founding member of the American Abstract Artists (AAA) and one of its leaders in the promotion of abstract work by artists such as Josef Albers, Ad Reinhardt, Piet Mondrian, and many others. Mason was a true artist's artist whose efforts helped lead to the great movements of later twentieth-century art, such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Post-Modernism, and Conceptual Art. Alice Trumbull Mason features essays that illuminate and contextualize the artist's multifaceted work and personal life through her paintings, prints, poetry, and letters. The book reveals the full life story of a seminal abstractionist, making a sound argument for adding her to the annals of great twentieth-century artists.

Kurt Schwitters: Merzkunst
Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948) is one of the most influential protagonists of the avant-garde, both as an artist and an author. With his utopia of the total Merz vision of the world he aimed at the unification of art and non-art . The art of assemblage and material art reached its first high point in his work; his Merzbau is regarded as a forerunner of present-day installations. Everything was in ruins in any case, and it was a matter of rebuilding something new from the fragments. But that is MERZ. One hundred years ago, after the end of the First World War, Kurt Schwitters declared the syllable Merz to be a word mark for his one-man movement and thereby propagated his wide-ranging creative work in almost all areas of art, literature and typography. The expression stands for a concept of the greatest possible unreservedness and artistic freedom in the choice of forms of expression. In Schwitters's compositions, apparently worthless things are resurrected and open up rich fields of association in new interactions. Merz art is abstract and characterised by the way it crosses borders within the media. For example, the Merzbau was created in Hannover between Dada and Constructivism,. This total work of art originally extended across a number of rooms and has been reconstructed in the Sprengel Museum inHannover. The publication provides an introduction to the Merz art of Kurt Schwitters and draws on the wealth of material to be found in the artist's estate, which is the subject of recent research. Designed by the award-winning graphic artist Marion Blomeyer.

A Visual Protest: The Art of Banksy
Decades before he blew the lid off the high-stakes art world by shredding a work immediately following its purchase at an auction, Banksy was committing acts of artistic protest on the streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. We still don't know who Banksy is, but thanks to this book we have a greater sense of how he works. This book features approximately eighty works from the start of his street art career to today, most photographed in situ and presented in vibrant illustrations. This book guides readers through Banksy's artistic processes and explains his influences, such as the Situationism movement and the May 1968 uprising in Paris. It delves into key works such as Love Is in the Air, a stencilled graffiti that subverts the idea of violent protest; Flag, in which the iconic American photograph at Iwo Jima is altered to reflect a group of Harlem children atop a burnt-out car; and the slyly titled Turf War, in which Winston Churchill sports a grassy Mohawk. The book also pays tribute to Banksy's rats, a reviled symbol of urban decay that the artist reimagines as rappers, violin players, and painters. As Banksy continues to challenge the political, economic, and racial oppression that takes place every day in cities around the world, this book offers a timely appreciation of just how the artist has embedded himself into the psyche of the powerful as well as the voiceless-without ever revealing his own identity.

Monet
Claude Monet (1840-1926) is one of the most admired and famous painters of all time, and the architect of Impressionism: a revolution that gave birth to modern art. His technique - painting out of doors, at the seashore or in the city streets - was as radically new as his subject matter, the landscapes and middle-class pastimes of a newly industrialized Paris. Painting with an unprecedented immediacy and authenticity, Monet claimed that his work was something new: both natural and true. In this new introductory study, James H. Rubin - one of the world's foremost specialists in 19th-century French art - traces the development of Monet's practice, from his early work as a caricaturist to the late paintings of waterlilies and his garden at Giverny. Rubin explores the cultural currents that helped to shape Monet's work: the utopian thought that gave rise to his politics; his interest in Japanese prints, gardening, and trends in the decorative arts; and his relationship with earlier French landscape painters as well as such contemporaries as Manet and Renoir.

Written Matter
Selections from Gabriel Orozco's notebooks: sketches, photographs, and texts that offer a rare look inside his art-making process. Written Matter presents selections from the notebooks of the prolific and celebrated artist Gabriel Orozco. These texts, sketches, and images from notebooks spanning 1992 to 2012 offer insights into Orozco's artmaking process, revealing his thinking, methods, and rationales. The texts, translated from the original handwritten Spanish, offer personal truisms, compelling insights, observations, and notes on process and method, forming a subterranean stream that runs parallel to his artwork. Art is the opposite of spectacle, he writes. Art does not try to convince anyone, that's why it's shocking. The notebooks are fundamental to Orozco's work, serving as a travelogue and personal dictionary that, when consulted, allow him to resume the trajectory of his thought anywhere. Because Orozco chooses not to work in a studio, his notebooks act as a different kind of studio space, on paper and bound between covers. Orozco works in a variety of media-drawing, installation, photography, sculpture, video. His notebooks reveal and revel in the style and substance of his art. Profusely illustrated and designed under Orozco's art direction, Written Matter offers an unusually intimate look at an artist's process and practice.

Turner
Few British artists have ever achieved such a wide range of style in oil painting, watercolour, drawing and engraving as J. M. W. Turner. He had a precocious gift that was developed over a lifetime of experiment and innovation. This classic book in the World of Art series traces the artist's career - from youthful pictureseque views and watercolours of 'Gothic' ruins to the romantic landscape and historical compositions of his maturity, and the astonishing art of his later years. In these late paintings Turner's tragic sense of life is stated most profoundly and the work was unintelligible to his contemporaries - but his reputation as the greatest British painter now rests on our understanding of these as pioneering explorations of abstraction, prefiguring the art of the 20th century. Graham Reynolds weaves together the artist's biography with sensitive criticism of his work, through all phases of his career, in this classic work - first published in 1969 - that has long served as an outstanding introduction to Turner's life and art. It has now been revised and updated by the curator of the Turner Bequest at Tate, David Blayney Brown, to reflect recent discoveries and interpretations, and the illustrations are in full colour for the first time. It will serve as the best available study of this perennially popular artist for a new generation of readers.

Yoshitomo Nara
Thirty years after Yoshitomo Nara rocketed to fame with his Neo-Pop paintings of sinister childlike figures, the artist has deepened his practice. This book presents the full range of Nara's work. Along with his most recognisable pieces, such as his ceramic figurines and ubiquitous portraits of wide-eyed children, readers will discover his earliest works-illustrations on paper that reflect Nara's passion for punk and rock music and popular culture, as well as early versions of his figures, roughly painted on surfaces ranging from envelopes to cardboard. His most recent works are represented as well, including his impressive twenty-six-foot-high outdoor sculpture, Miss Forest, plus large-scale bronze and smaller ceramic works. These and other pieces celebrate Nara's Northern Japanese heritage and confront the 2011 earthquake that devastated Japan. Comparing and contrasting these pieces through Nara's distinctive musical lens, viewers will come to recognise an artist who has become more contemplative with age, and who has grown to be more in touch with his ancestry.

Black Mountain Chamberlain: John Chamberlain's Writings at Black Mountain College, 1955
The first publication of the unknown poetry of a major twentieth-century sculptor In 1955, long before he became famous for his abstract metal sculptures, John Chamberlain lived at Black Mountain College, writing poetry alongside Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, and Charles Olson. By the time he moved to New York City in 1956 and began to develop his unique sculptural style, Chamberlain had completed a series of poems with marginal comments by Olson and himself, but the work remained unpublished and unknown-until now. In Black Mountain Chamberlain, Julie Sylvester presents a facsimile of this fascinating typescript along with an introduction based on interviews conducted with Chamberlain in the 1980s, conversations in which he described the strong connections between the poems and his later work. At first glance, Chamberlain's delicate and quiet poems appear to be the antithesis of his bold and brash sculpture. But in the introduction Chamberlain says that in fact the way he made poems at Black Mountain influenced the way he made sculptures throughout his career: It's actually doing things in the same way, with words or with metal. It's all in the fit. Beautifully produced, Black Mountain Chamberlain reveals a remarkable and unexpected new side of an important twentieth-century artist. Distributed for Editions Julie Sylvester

Amongst the pioneering exponents of Californian Abstract Expressionism was Frank Lobdell (b. 1921) - peer to painters such as Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko and Richard Diebenkorn and a significant artist in his own right, who takes centre-stage in this groundbreaking book. Centred around Lobdell's career, the narrative's scope is ambitious, charting the events during those crucial and revolutionary years in California so helping to define the role and participation of each of its protagonists. For Lobdell, the early training and exposure to these artists helped to shape his remaining career as a painter, draughtsman and printmaker. Unrivalled, Frank Lobdell makes an important contribution to the scholarship available on this fascinating slice of American art history, while shedding light on the career of an important artist of the period.

Paul Resika
This new monograph is the most comprehensive book on the work of Paul Resika (b. 1928) to date, highlighting his landscapes, portraits, and still lifes from the 1940s to the present. Resika s most important teacher was Hans Hofmann, with whom he studied on Cape Cod and in New York City in the mid-forties. Resika's subjects are drawn from nature and reflect his surroundings, which change with the seasons: in winter, he lives in New York; in summer, Cape Cod; in spring he spends time painting in the south of France and in Italy. Provincetown piers, fishing boats in the harbor, figures on the beach, and French farmhouses in the countryside emanate a dreamlike serenity and make up the rich visual vocabulary for which Resika is best known. Produced in a large format with more than 220 color illustrations, this book reflects over eight decades of Resika's output, with scholarly essays that reveal his ongoing dialogue with Hofmann's sophisticated ideas about color and pictorial structure.

'For millions of children, Dick Bruna's books are the first they will encounter. They don't know how lucky they are' Michael Bond This latest instalment in The Illustrators on Dutch artist Dick Bruna (1927-2017) takes readers behind the scenes of the creation of some of the world's most endearing children's characters. Offering a deeper appreciation of the artistry and skills behind the international icon Miffy, fellow illustrator Bruce Ingman also reveals Bruna's lesser-known work, including his striking book and poster designs. A glimpse into his studio in Utrecht reveals a man of many media, including drawing, painting, collage and photography. All the elements of Bruna's extensive body of work, spanning book covers, posters, stamps and merchandise, are given due significance in this illuminating study of his reputation and success. By the time of Bruna's retirement, Miffy had become an industry in her own right and Bruna an international star far beyond the sphere of children's books. Ingman shows us how the simple complexity of Bruna's work appeals to children, artists and designers alike, capturing the imagination across ages and artistic disciplines.

Donald Judd Spaces: Judd Foundation New York & Texas
Filled with newly commissioned and previously unpublished archival photographs alongside five essays by the artist, this book provides a unique opportunity to explore Judd's personal spaces, which are a crucial part of this revered artist's oeuvre. From a 19th-century cast-iron building in Manhattan to an extensive ranch in the mountains of western Texas, this book details the interiors, exteriors, and lands surrounding the buildings that comprise Judd's extant living and working spaces. Readers will discover how Judd first developed the concept of permanent installation at Spring Street in NYC, with artworks, furniture, and decorative objects striking a balance between the building's historic qualities and his own architectural innovations. His buildings in Marfa, Texas, demonstrate how Judd reiterated his concept of integrative living on a much larger scale, extending to the reaches of the Chinati Mountains at Ayala de Chinati, his 33,000-acre ranch south of the town. Each of the spaces was thoroughly considered by Judd with resolute attention to function and design. From furniture to utilitarian structures that Judd designed himself, these residences reflect Judd's consistent aesthetic. His spaces underscore his deep interest in the preservation of buildings and his deliberate interventions within existing architecture.

Transcendence
Transcendence is the long-awaited, career-spanning monograph of American landscape painter Richard Mayhew. For over half a century, Richard Mayhew has been reinventing the genre of landscape painting. His luminous work evokes not only physical vistas but also emotions, sounds, and the pure experience of color. He's known for his masterful use of color and for his unique creative process, inspired by improvisational jazz, which involves pouring paint directly onto the canvas and shaping it into lush, emotional moodscapes. * This monograph features 70+ of his most striking works. * Includes an exclusive interview with the artist, an introduction by his gallerist Mikaela Sardo Lamarche, and an essay by Andrew Walker, director of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art * Through engaging with his work, readers are invited into deep explorations of their own inner landscapes. Transcendence is a richly rewarding celebration of an iconic artist that will make you rethink everything you know about landscape painting. Mayhew's distinctive style emerges from his roots as a jazz musician, his immersion in the Abstract Expressionist movement, his African American, Cherokee, and Shinnecock heritage, and his unique affinity for the landscapes of the American West-but his paintings transcend boundaries of location and identity. * Great for lovers of fine art, landscape painting, Abstract Expressionism, as well as those who are interested in the intersection of art, music, and emotion * A lush celebration of Richard Mayhew's work, and an ideal introductory book for new fans * Add it to the collection of books like Abstract Expressionism by Carter Ratcliff, Jeremy Lewison, Susan Davidson, and David Anfam; California Landscapes: Richard Diebenkorn / Wayne Thiebaud by John Yau; and The Art of Richard Mayhew: A Critical Analysis with Interviews by Janet Berry Hess.

Aubrey Beardsley: Decadence & Desire
Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898) was only 25 when he died from tuberculosis, but in his short life he established a reputation as one of the most accomplished - and controversial - illustrators of his day, whose contribution to the visual language of Art Nouveau was profound. Astonishingly, all his work was created in the course of only six years, and is today instantly recognizable for its use of black ink and flowing lines on white paper - and its erotically charged subject matter. Not all his work was lubricious - some of it was political, poking fun at the decadent mores of the time - but much of it was, taking its stylistic inspiration from Japanese shunga and Greek vase painting and its thematic inspiration from mythology, history, poetry and drama. This beautifully designed, accessibly priced gift book offers a wealth of illustrations by Beardsley, and introduces his exquisitely wrought drawings and prints to a new audience. With a text by Jan Marsh and around 110 illustrations from the extensive collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, this book brings together a carefully curated selection of works from Beardsley's tragically short but highly productive life.

Elizabeth Peyton: Aire and Angels
Peyton is one of the world's leading contemporary artists. Internationally celebrated, her work has been at the forefront of a re-evaluation of figurative art and the tradition of portrait painting since the 1990s. Curated by Lucy Dahlsen in close discussion with the artist herself, the exhibition and publication comprise around 50 key works which will tour internationally. Known for her psychologically acute portraits, Peyton treats her subjects with a distinctiveintimacy, whether they are friends, historical figures, or cultural icons. Her diverse and ever-expanding repertoire of recurring subjects includes Kurt Cobain, Frida Kahlo, Napoleon, Queen Elizabeth II, and David Hockney, among many others. Painted from life, memory and found imagery, her highly stylised portraits combine exquisite technical ability with a sensibility predicated on a sincere emotional connection to her subjects. Beginning with key portraits from the first two decades of her career, the exhibition, which will be the artist's first museum retrospective in the UK for ten years, will investigate the expan-sions in her work that have unfolded since 2009 and include new works. Peyton's recent works, derived both from life and from a wide range of secondary sources, including film, literature, painting and opera, offer an increasingly complex exploration of portraiture in which the relationship between artist and subject becomes explicit.

Piranesi drawings: visions of antiquity
The Venetian-born artist Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) is best known for his dramatic etchings of the architecture and antiquities of his adopted city, Rome, and for his extraordinary flights of spatial fancy, such as Le Carceri ('Prisons'). Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, this original volume explores Piranesi's skill as a draughtsman. While many studies focus on Piranesi's activities as a printmaker, this beautifully illustrated book examines the many unanswered questions about his drawings. It will establish a clear relationship between his drawings and his prints, discuss the involvement of studio hands in his late works, and examine how his style as a draughtsman evolved. Piranesi Drawings reveals the quality and impact of the pen and chalk studies of a remarkably talented artist, as shown by the British Museum's superb collection.
