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.
The largest collections of works by artists from Poland is that in the possession of the Ein Harod Museum of Art. Many important works are located in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Paintings by Maurycy Gottlieb are in the collection
of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot. Works by artists who were killed or were persecuted in the Holocaust, are located in the Lohamei Haghetaot (The Ghetto Fighters’ House) near Haifa, the Yad Vashem Museum of Art in Jerusalem, and in the Oskar Ghez Collection at the University of Haifa.
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.
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.

The artists featured in Black Refractions, including Kerry James Marshall, Faith Ringgold, Nari Ward, Norman Lewis, Wangechi Mutu, and Lorna Simpson, are drawn from the renowned collection of the Studio Museum in Harlem. Through exhibitions, public programs, artist-in-residencies, and bold acquisitions, this pioneering institution has served as a nexus for artists of African descent locally, nationally, and internationally since its founding in 1968. Rather than aim to construct a single history of black art, Black Refractions emphasizes a plurality of narratives and approaches, traced through 125 works in all media from the 1930s to the present.
An essay by Connie Choi and entries by Eliza A. Butler, Akili Tommasino, Taylor Aldridge, Larry Ossei Mensah, Daniela Fifi , and other luminaries contextualize the works and provide detailed commentary. A dialogue between Thelma Golden, Connie Choi, and Kellie Jones draws out themes and challenges in collecting and exhibiting modern and contemporary art by artists of African descent.
More than a document of a particular institution s trailblazing path, or catalytic role in the development of American appreciation for art of the African diaspora, this volume is a compendium of a vital art tradition.
