Just as Picassos Guernica or Gericaults Raft of the Medusa survive as powerful cultural documents of their time, there will be works from our own era that will endure for generations to come. But which ones? Which contemporary artworks best capture the zeitgeist of the late 20th and early 21st centuries? This bold and engaging book, written by one of the freshest and most exciting new voices in cultural criticism, predicts which artists and artworks from the past two decades will come to define our age through their power to question, provoke and inspire. This is essential and enjoyable reading for all those working with and studying contemporary culture, as well as for the general art-lover keen to find a clear path through the maze of global contemporary art.
A Catalogue of works by Polish artists and Jewish artists from Poland in museums in Israel : paintings, sculptures, drawings was compiled from 1987. The authors stayed many times in Israel conducting research in Israeli museums.

In all, the present catalogue records 2367 works by 198 artists. The works from the museums in Israel contained in this catalogue constitute a precious heritage of the art and the spirituality of Polish Jews, which belong to the culture of Poland and Central-Eastern Europe and to the tradition of international artistic centres, especially Paris.

Alexander McQueen (British, 1969–2010) was one of the most influential, imaginative, and provocative designers of his generation. His clothing both challenged and expanded the conventional parameters of fashion to express ideas about culture, politics, and identity. Rare among designers, McQueen saw beyond clothing’s physical constraints to its ideological and conceptual possibilities, addressing questions related to race, class, gender, religion, sexuality, and the environment.
Featuring the most iconic and radical designs of his prolific career, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty examines the designer’s evolution from the start of his fledgling label, to his years as creative director at Givenchy in Paris, and finally to the collections of his own world-renowned London house. It reveals how McQueen adapted and combined the fundamentals of Savile Row tailoring, the specialized techniques of haute couture—such as lacework, embroidery, and featherwork—and technological innovation to achieve his distinctive aesthetic. It also focuses on the highly sophisticated narrative structures found in McQueen’s collections and in his extravagant runway presentations, which suggested the most avant-garde installation and performance art.
Published on the occasion of an exhibition organized by the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, this stunning book includes a preface by curator Andrew Bolton; an introduction by Susannah Frankel; an interview with Sarah Burton, creative director of the house of Alexander McQueen, conducted by Tim Blanks; and illuminating commentary from the designer himself. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty celebrates the astounding creativity and originality of a designer who relentlessly questioned and confronted the requisites of fashion.

This is the first book to catalog comparative maps and tableaux that visualize the heights and lengths of the world's mountains and rivers. Produced predominantly in the nineteenth century, these beautifully rendered maps emerged out of the tide of exploration and scientific developments in measuring techniques. Beginning with the work of explorer Alexander von Humboldt, these historic drawings reveal a world of artistic and imaginative difference.
Many of them give way-and with visible joy-to the power of fantasy in a mesmerizing array of realistic and imaginary forms. Most of the maps are from the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection at Stanford University.
Andy Warhol "Giant" Size is the definitive document of this remarkable creative force, and a telling look at late twentieth-century pop culture. A must-have for Warhol fans and pop culture enthusiasts, this in-depth and comprehensive overview of Warhol's extraordinary career is packed with more than 2,000 illustrations culled from rarely seen archival material, documentary photography, and artwork.
In 1484, the beautiful Stoat decided to charge the best painter of Florence, and probably the world, with a portrait. A penguin of aristocratic origin is pleased to be painted as the proud renaissance animal showing all its power. But, in reality, who was that person? Had he coincided in the painter’s study with Federico de Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino? In the self portrait of the Lion, may we deduce that Durero was his master? A game between fantasy and reality, an exceptional gallery where the animals take on the leading role, up to now, unknown in art.
Opening windows on art, sharing pleasure in painting, challenging a classical portrait… are the aims OQO brings closer to the world of art in the first issue of its new collection OQart.
The great book of animal portraits was conceived by Svjetian Junakovic and OQO to give documentary proof that, throughout history, animals, in their best dress, posed for the most famous portrait painters.
Svjetlan Junakovic made the selection responding to theoretical and practical requirements of the era (norms of animal beauty, social customs, and construction condition of the image in the space…), and with a ludic and suggestive proposal, advises us that any resemblance to any of the most famous portraits of the human type will be quite by chance…
But in the elusive, impenetrable countenance of Stoat, don’t we recognize the Dama… by Leonardo? What is hidden behind the crime of the chicken in the bath? Who is the letter addressed to? Does this animal have anything to do with the revolutionary Marat, killed under similar circumstances? Death and beauty in the same tunic of enigma and mystery…
These and other questions, never completely resolved, shall rouse the curiosity in the observer, in an exceptional gallery unknown to the world of art. It’s enough to know that one day they existed…

Now available in a new format, this lavishly illustrated volume explores Art Deco art and design from its origin to its present day influences. The Art Deco style is so recognizable and widespread that its original impact on the culture in which it emerged has been all but lost in the clutter of imitation. This book draws our attention back to the birth of Art Deco—a period between two devastating world wars when industrialization was flourishing, interest in archaeology was peaking, and movements such as Cubism, Constructivism, Futurism, and Modernism were turning the art world on its head. Brilliantly designed to reflect the style it celebrates, Art Deco is filled with hundreds of examples of painting, architecture, interiors, jewelry, crafts, furniture, and fashion.
Great works of art cannot be fully understood in a single encounter: to get the most out of modern art, it pays to revisit and reconsider, to reflect and to scrutinize in detail. It is also helpful to understand a work’s context: what has gone before, what it may be reacting against or extending, how it embraces new technologies, and how it relates to contemporary thinking on such subjects as politics, sexuality, identity and the role of the artist.
Modern Art in Detail: 75 Masterpieces spotlights the finer points that even those in the know may miss, casting light upon minutiae that a quick glance will almost certainly fail to reveal. Expert commentary reveals the subtle internal details and technical tricks employed by the artist to achieve particular effects. The book also looks at the themes and external and personal factors influencing the creation of an artwork – everything from global political events, to groundbreaking movements such as Cubism, Abstract Expressionism and Pop, and even scientific and mathematical theories, which are often of great relevance. The book examines 75 works of modern art, from Vincent van Gogh’s The Church at Auvers-sur-Oise, through Marcel Duchamp’s The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even and Francis Bacon’s Three Studies for a Crucifixion, to Jeff Koons’s Triple Elvis and Theaster Gates’s Face Over Time.
Approaching each work as part of a tradition that links the oldest work of art to the most recent, it deftly charts the shift from the supremacy of artistic technique to the more recent dominance of the idea behind the artwork itself, as well as being an enlightening, entertaining and accessible guide to a wide range of modern art.
