  • Brooks's 1764-2014

    One of the many aspects of London that never failed to attract comment from foreign visitors in the late 18th and early nineteenth 19th was the Clubland that sprouted along Pall Mall and St James's. Paris and Vienna had nothing like it. From its foundation in 1764, Brooks's was accepted as one of the most important manifestations of this new form of London living. From its inception, its membership drew on some of England's wealthiest and most influential families. From its inception, too, the Club had a distinct political flavour. Although Brooks's was never exclusively... Learn More

    Exploring aspects of Romanticn landscape drawing in Britain and Germany from its origins in the 1760s to its final flowering in the 1840s, this exhibition catalogue consiers 26 major drawings, watercolours and oil... Learn More

    A masterpiece of medieval Arab metalwork revealed, shedding light on courtly life in northern Iraq under the Mongol governorship. Accompanying a major scholarly exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery, this book explores one of the most beautiful and enigmatic objects in The Courtauld's collection: the so-called ‘Courtauld wallet', a brass container richly inlaid with gold and silver, imitating a lady's textile or leather bag, and probably made in Mosul in northern Iraq around 1300. No other object of this kind is known. Decorated all round with courtly figures

  • John Ruskin: Artist and Observer

    A celebration of the creative genius of John Ruskin (1819-1900) as represented in his distinctive draughtsmanship. Ruskin's drawings and watercolours will also be read as indicators of periods of euphoria and intellectual engagement, as well as moods of bleak despair and his eventual descent into insanity. The drawings of John Ruskin are exhilarating to look at, they express his own sense of exhilaration as he observed landscape and nature, buildings and artifacts, and deserve to be appreciated afresh by audiences anew. Accompanying a landmark exhibition at the National Galleries of... Learn More

  • Deaf, Dumb & Brilliant

    Until recently, the Dutch draughtsman Johan Thopas, who was born in 1626 both deaf and dumb, was only known to a small group of connoisseurs, dealers and collectors. However, his remarkable, subtle and technically refined portrait drawings on parchment deserve a wider audience. This handsome publication, the first devoted to his work, will prove to be an eye opener for many art lovers.

    Beginning with his earliest works (two beautiful miniatures of 1646 in the Fondation Custodia in Paris), Thopas produced incredibly refined drawings, usually with lead point on parchment. He had an... Learn More

  • Fame and Friendship

    • An examination of the portraits of Alexander Pope and in particular the compelling busts, originally made for Pope's closest friends but then multiplied and reproduced throughout the 18th century, by the groundbreaking sculptor Louis François Roubiliac.

    No literary figure of the 18th century was more esteemed than the poet Alexander Pope, and his sculpted portraits exemplify the celebration of literary fame at a period when authorship was being newly conceived and the portrait bust was enjoying new popularity. Accompanying an exhibition at Waddesdon Manor (The Rothschild... Learn More

  • Meditations On A Heritage

    That Ernst Gombrich was one of the most important art historians of the 20th century would seem to go without saying. And so one might expect him to feature prominently in the numerous surveys, guides and introductions to the history and methods of art history produced during the past two decades. Precisely the opposite, however, is the case. One reason for this certainly was that Gombrich was an avowed enemy of 'big ideas', interested not in generalizations but in the specifics of individual cases. Avoiding jargon or rhetoric, standing for 'common sense', he always... Learn More

  • From Donatello to Bernini

    • Focusing on the draughtsmanship of Italian sculptor Baccio Bandinelli as well as that of Michelangelo Buonarotti, Benvenuto Cellini, Maso Finiguerra, Giambologna, Antonio Pollaiuolo and Andrea del Verrocchio, this book is an examination of how and why cer

    The self-portrait of Baccio Bandinelli in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, shows the scupltor pointing not to a work of marble or bronze, but to a drawing. Bandinelli was particularly proud of his skills as a draughtsman, and he was prolific in his production of works on paper. This set him apart from contemporaries... Learn More
