John Van Alstine: Sculpture 1971-2018
For nearly forty years, John Van Alstine has created abstract sculptures forged from steel and stone. In John Van Alstine: Sculpture, 1971-2018, three notable essayists explore the sculptor's abstract landscapes that reveal the complex synergy between natural forces and man-made elements; by grappling with the challenges of balancing stone and steel, Van Alstine's indoor, outdoor, and site-specific sculptures are measured and calculated, yet simultaneously poetic; their swooping angular lines create expansive spaces beyond the limits of their steel and stone frames to unveil our collective history and imagination, illuminating a deft interplay of natural energies and the human experience. The artist weaves into his works elements of mythology, celestial navigation, implements, human figures, movement, urban forms, and found objects, while using motion, balance, and inertia to incorporate the eternal forces of gravity, tension, and erosion. In an essay on his drawings, Van Alstine details the critical role they play in the initiation and planning of his projects, offering the reader a firsthand perspective on the artist's creative process. Van Alstine's works have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions and are found in the permanent collections of the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art, and the Phillips Collection, to name but a few. His works are also found in numerous public and private collections. The Artist Book Foundation is gratified to announce the publication of this lavishly illustrated monograph on an esteemed and prolific contemporary artist.

June Schwarcz: Artist in Glass and Metal
- First book to chronicle the life and artwork of June Schwarcz, a pioneer craftsperson in the enamel and decorative arts fieldJune Schwarcz (1918-2015) was among the most innovative artists working in the contemporary enamels field. Best known for her electroplated metal sculpture embellished with rich enamel color, she produced an extensive body of work that, while linked to long-standing vessel-making traditions, defied convention. In a field known for visual opulence, preciousness, and adherence to traditional craft practices, Schwarcz was a renegade. She learned enameling on her own and adopted a highly experimental approach to process, inventing new ways of creating sculptural objects in metal and unorthodox strategies for their embellishment. Believing in the power of opposing principles, she created forms that were at once raw and elemental, elegantly composed, and lushly beautiful. A seminal figure in the American craft field, Schwarcz led enameling workshops across the country and influenced several generations of young and emerging artists. She also played a central role in the craft community of the San Francisco Bay Area, where she lived and worked for more than fifty years. June Schwarcz: Artist in Glass and Metal is the first publication to investigate Schwarcz's work in depth. It explores the rich trajectory of her career along with the sources and influences that helped shape and define her singular vision. It also investigates the themes and subjects that intrigued her as it examines the role she played in advancing enameling in America in the late twentieth century. This lavishly illustrated publication celebrates the extraordinary body of work Schwarcz created over a period of sixty years.

About Watercolour
Watercolour paintng is one of the most popular - and most challenging - of art forms. About Watercolours by leading artist Mike Jeffries aims to bring this technique to life with passion and excitement, and an original approach that offers something `different' to the existing watercolour instruction books that exist. Bringing to bear the author's extensive experience and skill - particularly working with artists such as John Yardley, Alvaro Castagnet, David Howell, and Herman Pekel amongst others - the book is not intended as another tome on technique, but an accessible encouragement to engage with the author's work and personal views on watercolour painting. The basic premise is that it is very difficult to teach someone to paint and many existing titles, with their emphasis on demonstrations and techniques, can be very intimidating for the amateur painter coming to watercolours for the first time. About Watercolours offers a visual pathway through the author's own journey into watercolour painting, showcasing a broad range of the author's work and avoiding banal technique to focus instead on `learning by doing' and giving valuable real advice to the budding amateur. This is not just an essential entry point to watercolours for the amateur artist, but showcases Mike's unique talent as a leading watercolourist and instructor.

Facture: Conservation, Science, Art History: Volume 4: Series, Multiples, Replicas
A rigorous and wide-ranging investigation of the techniques and reasons behind the artistic practice of replication Volume 4 of the National Gallery of Art's biennial conservation research journal Facture examines the complex themes of series, multiples, and replicas. With a broad historical purview that spans from the Renaissance to the 20th century, this publication considers various modes of replication-by the artist's own hand or workshop, as a posthumous creation, or as a preferred practice-and their motivations. Drawing on new research into materials and techniques, nine essays focus on works in diverse media by artists such as Sandro Botticelli, Auguste Rodin, and Robert Rauschenberg and present intriguing conclusions about the nature of serialization and the relationships among multiple versions of a composition. Filled with spectacularly detailed photographs and fresh discoveries, this volume provides exceptional insight into these extraordinary works of art and offers the possibility of exciting new avenues of inquiry.

Knifed Watercolors: The New Revolution
This is the stunning story of how Divine Intervention quietly stepped in and shattered the classic boundaries of watercolours. It happened to one artist in one magnificent flash, in one inconsequential basement studio, in one precise magical stroke. Without looking, Christy reached for a brush and, instead, a deity plunked a clumsy old palette knife in her right hand. Without thinking, and because she was exasperated with the easel work staring back at her, she x'd out the still-wet painting, turning it into trash. Frustration quickly turned to awe. Quivering squiggles of watercolours played among themselves, creating mesmerising shapes and scapes of their own making. One thundering thought suddenly grabbed her imagination: What if I took control of the knife and painted a whole watercolour with palette knives and a puddle? A decade of trials and errors, of failures and successes, has catapulted her distinctive watercolours to a new, original, contemporary 21st-century style called Knifed Watercolors (R).

Anatomy for the Artist
Unlock your inner artist and learn how to draw the human body in this beautifully illustrated art book by celebrated artist and teacher Sarah Simblet. In Anatomy for the Artist, Sarah reveals the extraordinary structure of the human body. Combining specially-commissioned photographs of models with historical and contemporary works of art and her own dynamic ?life drawing, she leads us inside the human body to map its skeleton, muscle groups, and body systems. Detailed line drawings superimposed over photographs reveal the links between what the body looks like and its internal construction. Six drawing classes show how to observe different parts of the body - from top to toe - and give expert guidance on how to draw them. Inspirational master classes on famous works, ranging from a Michelangelo study to a Degas painting, show how artists have depicted the human body over the centuries. Each master class includes a photograph of a model holding the same pose as in the painting, to highlight details of anatomy and show how the artist has interpreted them. Understanding anatomy is the key to drawing the human body successfully. As well as being the perfect reference, Anatomy for the Artist will inspire you to find a model, reach for your pencil, and start drawing.
