♥ Book Title : Chalk
☯ Full Synopsis : "The first book to explore the life and work of painter Cy Twombly, one of the most important and influential artists of the Twentieth Century Cy Twombly was a man obsessed with myth and history—including his own. Shuttling between stunning homes in Italy and the United States where he perfected his room-size canvases, he managed his public image carefully and rarely gave interviews. Upon first seeing Twombly’s remarkable paintings, writer Joshua Rivkin became obsessed himself with the mysterious artist, and began chasing every lead, big or small—anything that might illuminate those works, or who Twombly really was. Now, after unprecedented archival research and years of interviews, Rivkin has reconstructed Twombly’s life, from his time at the legendary Black Mountain College to his canonization in a 1994 MoMA retrospective; from his heady explorations of Rome in the 1950s with Robert Rauschenberg to the ongoing efforts to shape his legacy after his death. Including previously unpublished photographs, Chalk presents a more personal and searching type of biography than we’ve ever encountered, and brings to life a more complex Twombly than we’ve ever known."Article| Joshua Rivkin| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Born Under Saturn
☯ Full Synopsis : "A rare art history classic that The New York Times calls a “delightful, scholarly and gossipy romp through the character and conduct of artists from antiquity to the French Revolution.” “This book is fascinating to read because of the abundant quotations which bring to life so many remarkable individuals.”–The New York Review of Books Born Under Saturn is a classic work of scholarship that presents, in the words of the great art historian Meyer Schapiro, “an enthralling story of the changing behavior of artists through the centuries.” Here Rudolf and Margot Wittkower explore the idea of artistic madness. It is an idea, as the Wittkowers demonstrate, that comes into its own in the Renaissance, as part of the new bid by visual artists to distinguish themselves from the mere craftsmen with whom they had been lumped together in the past. The alienated artist, the Wittkowers show, is very much a creation of the modern era. Of course, not all artists have been mad, and what makes the Wittkowers’ book so much fun to read is that it’s crammed with anecdotes about all kinds of artists, famous, infamous, and utterly obscure. Suicide, celibacy, weird hobbies, crime, brawling, miserliness, licentiousness, and much more illustrate a book that is a comprehensive, quirky, and endlessly stimulating resource for every student and lover of the arts."Article| Rudolf Wittkower| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The New York Stories of Edith Wharton
☯ Full Synopsis : "A New York Review Books Original Edith Wharton wrote about New York as only a native can. Her Manhattan is a city of well-appointed drawing rooms, hansoms and broughams, all-night cotillions, and resplendent Fifth Avenue flats. Bishops’ nieces mingle with bachelor industrialists; respectable wives turn into excellent mistresses. All are governed by a code of behavior as rigid as it is precarious. What fascinates Wharton are the points of weakness in the structure of Old New York: the artists and writers at its fringes, the free-love advocates testing its limits, widows and divorcées struggling to hold their own. The New York Stories of Edith Wharton gathers twenty stories of the city, written over the course of Wharton’s career. From her first published story, “Mrs. Manstey’s View,” to one of her last and most celebrated, “Roman Fever,” this new collection charts the growth of an American master and enriches our understanding of the central themes of her work, among them the meaning of marriage, the struggle for artistic integrity, the bonds between parent and child, and the plight of the aged. Illuminated by Roxana Robinson’s Introduction, these stories showcase Wharton’s astonishing insight into the turbulent inner lives of the men and women caught up in a rapidly changing society."Article| Edith Wharton| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : No Art Without Craft
☯ Full Synopsis : ""But it is his skill as a historian as well as a printer that endears his name to the student of typography. His four volumes on the practice of typography are considered classics. In an age when few American scholars were examining early printed books, he made significant scholarly contributions to the study of incunables. When the Grolier Club was founded in 1884, it was not surprising that, as New York's most illustrious printer, he was asked to be one of the founding members and to provide much the Club's early printing."--BOOK JACKET."Article| Irene Tichenor| Statement ..."
