Francesco Clemente - India
Francesco Clemente
This catalogue of recent works by renowned Italian painter Francesco Clemente proves that his oeuvre has only grown richer and more complex over the years. The sumptuous,  transcendent works presented here are driven in particular by Clemente's instincts about the use of color-in some he limits himself to warm oranges and greens, creating a soft, sensuous atmosphere that reflects his lifelong love of India and tantrism.

Philip Guston: Paintings 1947-1979
by Philip Guston, Michael Auping, Martin Hentschel, Christoph Schreier
Book Description
Philip Guston belongs to the generation of American postwar artists who were the first to free themselves from the great example of European art. But unlike his Abstract Expressionist colleagues, Guston did not remain faithful to just one style, but developed a variety of different forms of expression. In the 1930s he began under the banner of socially committed surrealism, and by the end of the 40s he had arrived at abstraction. From that time on, he created the large-format, powerful color paintings that established his international reputation. But in the mid-60s, Guston returned to a kind of symbolic realism with disturbing power. His late works are dominated by mysterious imagery of great intensity, and have had a major influence on younger artists. In this book, well-known experts focus not only on his early works, but also on the late, realistic Guston, revealing his artistic development from the late 40s to the end of the 70s.

Harry N Abrams; ISBN: 0810965534

by Richard Shone, Alfred Sisley
A survey of the life and work of Alfred Sisley, one of the leading exponents of the Impressionist movement. The text examines how Sisley's painting life was devoted to the landscape. The author examines the tonal balance of such celebrated paintings as the snow-scenes of the Paris suburbs, views of the flooded Seine at Port-Marly and the colourful regattas on the Thames. Shone demonstrates that full recognition for the artist and his work only began after his relatively early death and argues that even now, his work is unjustifiably neglected. In studying Sisley's artistic development, the artist's English nationality, early career, struggle to earn a living, and secluded later years are examined. The Publisher
