  • Fremmed og moderneby Peter Fibiger Bang; Jørn Erslev Andersen; Ole Høiris

    Aarhus University Press 2005; US$ 28.54

    Fremmed og moderne søger at ændre vores syn på den antikke kulturs efterliv i europæisk civilisation. I dag betragter vi antikken som stivnet tradition, en forbigangen fortid. Men antikken har ikke primært fungeret som udtryk for det etablerede. Derimod har antikken inspireret generationer af europæere, fordi den repræsenterede noget fremmedartet og... more...

  • The Avant Garde: A Very Short Introductionby David Cottington

    OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 7.99

    For over a hundred years 'the avant-garde' has been the most influential concept in modern art; its impact on the history of modern culture has been profound. In this Very Short Introduction, David Cottington explores why the avant-garde carries so much authority, and places it within the context of western modernity and capitalist culture. more...

  • The Chinese Literati on Paintingby Susan Bush

    Hong Kong University Press, HKU 2012; US$ 25.00

    This classic work, first published in 1971, explores the transition in painting styles from the late Sung period to the art of Yuan dynasty literati. Building on the pioneering work of Oswald Siren and James Cahill, Susan Bush’s investigations of painting done under the Chin dynasty confirmed the dominance of scholar-artists in the north and their... more...

  • The Museum Is Openby Andrea Meyer; Benedicte Savoy

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    Mobility - in the broad sense and use of the term - is a major theme in the reflection on art and history today. With its emphasis on processes of influx and reciprocity, it suggests an interpretative approach new to traditional thinking on art history, most often concerned with art in its static state. The Contact Zone series encourages... more...

  • Art on the Blockby Ann Fensterstock

    St. Martin's Press 2013; US$ 19.60

    An informative tour of the last four decades of contemporary art in New York City, showing how artists were the unwitting footsoldiers of gentrification and how neighbhorhoods in turn shaped their art—with special attention to artists such as Basquiat, Cindy Sherman, and Jeff Koons more...

  • Church Woodwork in the British Isles, 1100-1535by Robert A. Faleer

  • The Art of Gamanby Delphine Hirasuna; Terry Heffernan; Kit Hinrichs

    Potter/TenSpeed/Harmony 2013; US$ 35.00

    In 1942, Executive Order 9066 mandated the incarceration of 110,000 Japanese Americans, including men, women, children, the elderly, and the infirm, for the duration of the war. Allowed only what they could carry, they were given just a few days to settle their affairs and report to assembly centers. Businesses were lost, personal property was stolen... more...

  • Elements of Art Historiography in Medieval Textsby D. Aalders; E.F. van der Grinten

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.82

    The attitude of medieval men of letters towards plastic arts, architecture and applied art has so far been studied from a primarily aesthetic point of view. The cause of this may be found, I offer no opinion on it, in the conceptions of the authors who have been publishing on this during the last seventy-five years or in the fact that most medieval... more...

  • Dutch Silverby J.W. Frederiks

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.65

    This third volume on Dutch Silver does not need a lengthy introduction, since it is a continuation of the second volume, describing and reproducing the wrought plate of the other provinces of the Netherlands, i. e. Zeeland, Utrecht, North-Brabant, Limburg, Gelderland, Overijsel, Friesland and Groningen. The province of Drenthe, until recent years a... more...

  • Dutch Silverby J.W. Frederiks

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.65

    Prosperity generally brings with it a desire for luxury, which finds its expression in man's endeavour to surround himself with objects of beauty. Artists of all kinds are always being attracted to the centres of wealth, which thus develop into centres of art. We observe this through the whole of history; in antiquity, in the Middle Ages and, above... more...
