The loft, which is essentially an urban construction, is an ideal way of converting one’s own home to a unique space that reflects and extends the personality of those who dwell there. The intention of this book is to demonstrate that not only is it possible, but also that often these compact solutions can stand on their own in comparison with the enormous lofts of London or Manhattan. And even though most of them are small, all of them demonstrate how it is possible to convert what could be a small apartment into a spacious loft. This is achieved by using great care in the design.

Alice was created by British mathematician, photographer and writer Lewis Carroll, inspired by the daughter of some friends. Carroll fantasised about taking the child to a parallel-reality world which he called “Wonderland”. Alice has inspired movies, songs, video games and all kinds of books. The book is a tribute to this fanciful girl and all the friends she meets along the way, including the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter. Each character shines in its own right and reveals its unique personality in each encounter with Alice. 28 illustrators offer us a personal version of each character, revealing something more of their art and trend. Have a happy, creative journey to wonderland!

Sweet & Bizarre is a way of describing works of art from the Lowbrow - also called Pop Surrealism - movement. The “Lowbrow” movement arose in 1979, led by artist Robert Williams after various art analysts struggled with categorising his works. Many artists are now associate with this new concept, including Mark Ryden, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Gary Baseman, Takashi Murakami, Xue Wang, Sara Sanz, etc. In the following pages you will find fantastic works that will make you feel something sweet and bizarre at the same time, artists like Kazuhiro Hori, Xue Wang, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Marion Peck, Brandi Milne and Dilka Bear. Each artist tells us about their trajectory and their more personal styles.

From soup cans to car crashes, the early work of Andy Warhol is reconsidered in this illustrated collection of essays from a wide variety of scholars, writers, and artists. Andy Warhol embodied many of the paradoxes of postwar America. Emerging as a successful commercial artist during the heyday of Madison Avenue, Warhol was obsessed with consumer objects and the production of fame. His early work reveals his fascination with Hollywood stars, everyday household products, disasters, car crashes, and the Kennedy assassination. In this provocative and stimulating collection of essays, Warhol and his art illuminate the utopian promise and the dark side of what Henry Luce called “the American Century.” Stuart Morgan considers the public and private Andy Warhol; Barbara Kruger looks at the polarized responses to his work; Richard Prince offers a wry comparison between himself and his more famous predecessor; and other writers, artists, and scholars contribute their own thoughts and reactions to Warhol the man and artist. Illustrated throughout with a wide ranging series of illustrations of Warhol’s famed and lesser known works, this collection brings into clearer focus the artist’s personal struggles to make sense of the world he inhabited.

Rarely seen outside the United States, The Phillips Collection's American masterworks trace the development and diversity of modern art in America from the end of the nineteenth century through the post-war decades after World War II. Organised into thematic sections, the story unfolds chronologically from the great romantic realist painters, like Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer, to the psychological insights of Edward Hopper, the abstract landscapes of Arthur Dove and Georgia O'Keefe, and finally, to the heroic triumphs of the abstract expressionists, like Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko. Assembled over half a century by Duncan Phillips, the collection is not only a reflection of one man's personal taste, but also a continuous snapshot of the changing character of American art in the twentieth century, including essays by European and American scholars, this publication of 68 works by 50 artists tells the story of nearly a century of dynamic vision and innovation in American modern art.

Like many artists, Paul Cezanne started his great paintings by sketching his ideas on paper. This book recreates some of Cezanne's sketchbooks as it delves into the Kunstmuseum Basel's collection of drawings by Cezanne-the most comprehensive and significant collection of the artist's drawings in the world. Rarely presented in exhibitions, these works introduce readers to the nucleus of Cezanne's creative thinking, allowing us to observe his everyday practice as a draftsman. Scenes of violence appear side by side with portrait sketches; copies after Eugene Delacroix or ancient sculptures alternate with landscapes and bathers. Repeated studies varying only slightly in perspective and angle help us understand how Cezanne strove to find the right approach to his subject. Featuring his drawings as well as his great paintings and accompanied by a series of essays that explore how Cezanne used his sketchbooks as preparation for landscapes, portraits, and still lifes, this book offers fascinating insights into the creative process of a master.

Illuminated by Dale Chihuly’s mesmerising glass sculptures, this beautiful book presents the artist’s most recent nature-inspired work. It’s been over a decade since New York City hosted a new Dale Chihuly exhibition. Featuring the artist’s latest, dynamic glass sculptures on display at The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG), this book proves that it was worth the wait. Filled with panoramic vistas of garden landscapes transformed by Chihuly glass, this dazzling celebration of the artist’s brilliant use of form and colour reveals the perfect union between Chihuly’s organic shapes and their natural settings. New hand-blown glass sculptures complement the architecture of NYBG’s Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, itself considered a work of glass art. In addition to photographs of the site-specific installations, this book features a series of dynamic drawings by Chihuly. As fluid and colourful as the sculptures themselves, these works offer a direct representation of the energy and inspiration behind Chihuly’s artistic process. This volume and the exhibition it accompanies show how the Tiffany of our time has brought the art of glass-blowing and sculpting into the forefront of American art, introducing generations of people of all ages to the magic and beauty of glass.
