Painting and Photography
"This comprehensive study offers detailed analysis of how classical painting challenged, resisted, and was influenced by the emergence of photography. Photography divided opinion since its invention; some saw it as an invaluable tool in the enhancement of artistic production, for others it was too mechanical to ever represent the grand concept of 'art.' This volume examines the fraught yet rich relationship that developed between them, from portraiture and landscapes to still lifes, nudes, and tableaux vivants. Accompanied by a rich selection of illustrations, the text charts this fascinating history from photography's first forays into the public domain and the organizations set up to defend it against criticism, to the influence of figures such as Daguerre, whose daguerreotype invention raised the possibility of being able to accurately replicate images. This volume explores not only photography's fight for recognition, but also its impact on painters of the day, as it challenged them to devise new ways to capture the human form, and forever changed the face of art."--Publisher description.

Hiding Making Showing Creation
The artist, at least according to Honoré de Balzac, is at work when he seems to be at rest; his labor is not labor but repose. This observation provides a model for modern artists and their relationship to both their place of work—the studio—and what they do there. Examining the complex relationship between process, product, artistic identity, and the artist’s studio—in all its various manifestations—the contributors to this volume consider the dichotomy between conceptual and material aspects of art production. The essays here also explore the studio as a form of inspiration, meaning, function, and medium, from the nineteenth century up to the present.

The Original Copy
Since its birth in the first half of the 19th century, photography has offered extraordinary possibilities of isolating works of art for study and pleasure. Through cropping, focus, angle of view, distance and lighting as well as the ex post facto techniques of dark room manipulation, collage, montage and assemblage, photographers not only interpret the artworks they record but create stunning reinventions. The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1939 to Today presents a critical examination of the intersections between photography and sculpture. Through a selection of nearly 300 outstanding pictures by more than 100 artists from the 19th century to the present, The Original Copy explores how one medium has become implicated in the understanding of the other. Photographs reproduced in this richly illustrated volume range in subject from inanimate objects to performing bodies, and include major works by mediums most influential artists, from early modernism to the present.
From Marie Antoinette s Garden
"So you like flowers?" Louis XIV said to his young queen, "Well, I've got a bouquet for you–the Petit-Trianon." And so Marie Antoinette took over the splendid former residence of Madame de Pompadour, transforming the gardens into an enchanted landscape. Using archival documents and architect Richard Mique's original plans from 1777, Elisabeth de Feydeau recreates the fanciful herbarium, taking the reader on a journey through Marie Antoinette's estate. The reader is invited to proceed from the French Gardens, with their beds of hyacinth, buttercups, and anemones, via the winding paths of the Anglo-Chinese Gardens, through the conifers of the Belvedere Gardens, where fabulous late night parties were hosted, and past the entrancing aromas of the shrubs surrounding the Temple of Love, to the wildflowers of the Garden of Solitude. Elisabeth de Feydeau's fascinating reconstruction plunges the reader into the eighteenth century, showcasing newlydiscovered species and the cosmetic uses of many of the garden's plants, alongside anecdotes from the royal court. The volume is brought to life by delicate watercolors of the herbarium by Pierre-Joseph Redouté, a designer and painter for Marie Antoinette's Cabinet.
