40 Academy Building Classical A Vision of Europe and America
John Wiley & Sons 1993 1854902881 Hardcover 
Copy is new. The year 1992 was a milestone in the long debate between the Classical and Modernist camps, as it witnessed the unprecedented coincidence of two major classical exhibitions on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean: 'A Vision of Europe', which was inaugurated by HRH The Prince of Wales on 29th September at the appropriately classical setting of San Giorgio in Poggiale in the heart of Bologna; and 'Building America - Conference on the work of Emerging Classical Architects', held on 30th October, organised by the newly-formed Classical Architecture League at the stately Greek Revival Lyceum in Alexandria, Virginia. This book features the compiled work from the exhibitions, together with the symposium transcripts. The material makes it clear that the new classicism has moved beyond the realm of the esquisse - everywhere, classical and traditional buildings are being erected. Comparative study of the American and British interpretations of classicism. Introduced by well-known theorist and practitioner Demetri Porphyries. Foreword for The 'Vision of Europe' by HRH The Prince of Wales. Highlights the latest projects by leading figures in New Classicism including Robert Stern, John Simpson, Rob Krier and Allan Greenberg. Essays by David Watkin, Carroll William Westfall, and Thomas Gordon Smith lay out the new directions charted by this book. ; 12.50 X 10.50 X 1.25 inches; 1 pages

61 Armstrong, Tom A Singular Vision Architecture/Art/Landscape
W. W. Norton & Company 2012 1593720432 Hardcover 
New Book. After a fire destroyed his colonial revival house on Fisher's Island, Tom Armstrong and his wife commissioned Thomas Phifer and Partners to design a spectacular modernist steel and glass house on the same site, fulfilling Mr. Armstrong's dream of living in a garden surrounded by art. Beginning with the first house, this book takes us through the fire, the selection of an architect, the building of the new house, and the acquisition of furnishings and art. Throughout we encounter designs and artwork by such notables as Marcel Breuer, Frank Gehry, Mies van der Rohe, Eero Sarrinen, Mark di Suvero, Isamu Noguchi, Betty Woodman, Alfred Leslie, Leon Polk Smith, Terry Winters, and a host of others. We also become privy to the thinking of an inventive gardener whose meticulous planning has resulted in an extraordinary setting for architecture and art and is open to the public during the summer months. ; 11.30 X 10.40 X 1.10 inches; 256 pages

68 Aslet, Clive An Exuberant Catalogue of Dreams The Americans who Revived the Country House in Britain
London Aurum Press Ltd 2013 1781310947 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Biblio, index. To a modern visitor nothing will seem more British than a classic country house like Cliveden or Leeds Castle. But the truth is actually very different. That such fabulous places exist in their present form - or in the case of, say, Blenheim, survive in the ownership of the family - is as much as anything down to American money and taste. Now, for the first time, Clive Aslet's magnificent book reveals the extent of this remarkable phenomenon. Covering eighteen Americans and their houses - from the captivating May Goelet and Floors Castle in Scotland to the big game hunter Willie James and West Dean Park on the south coast - he illustrates the varied destinies by which stupendously wealthy Americans ended up owning great stately piles, and the variety of transformations they wrought upon them. Some of the marriages between aristocrats and heiresses were happy, others distinctly less so. Dowries went on new roofs to keep the rain out and electric lighting and central heating to modernise dwellings that could be as wintry as the hearts of their ancestral owners. For self-made magnates like William Randolph Hearst or Gordon Selfridge a country house was a rich man's folly - Hearst filled St Donat's castle in Wales with untold fittings and trophies but hardly ever visited it, Selfridge's pharaonic vision for Hengistbury Head never escaped the drawing board. For others, like Andrew Carnegie at Skibo or Sir Paul Getty at Wormsley, it was the chance to out-do the natives by creating idylls of baronial splendour or arcadian cricket fields. But the American influence, as Clive Aslet shows, was lasting, and profound beyond architecture and design. What became known as the 'country house look' was codified by an American - Nancy Lancaster. The greatest of early twentieth-century gardens, Hidcote, was created by an American, Lawrence Johnston. It was an American romance - with Wallis Simpson at Fort Belvedere - that caused Edward VIII to abdicate. Illustrated throughout with magnificent photographs, An Exuberant Catalogue of Dreams is a fascinating chronicle of how it happened that, as Gladstone's Chancellor of the Exchequer remarked in 1898, 'We are all Americans now'. ; Colour Illustrations; 11.34 X 9.21 X 0.94 inches; 208 pages

71 Audubon, John James & John Knott & Daniel Patterson John James Audubon's Journal of 1826 The Voyage to the Birds of America
University of Nebraska Press 2011 0803225318 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Copy is new. Dust jacket protected. John James Audubon, an early American naturalist and painter, produced one of the greatest works of natural history and art of the nineteenth century, The Birds of America. As the record of the interior story of the making of this monumental work, his journal of 1826 is one of the richest documents in the history of American culture. The first accurate transcription of Audubon’s 1826 journal, this edition corrects many of the errors, both intentional and unintentional, found in previous editions. Such errors have obscured the figure of Audubon as a man struggling to realize his professional and artistic dreams. When Audubon embarked for Liverpool from New Orleans in 1826, he carried with him more than 250 of his watercolor drawings in a heavy case, a packet of letters of introduction, and many a good reason to believe that he was a fool to be gambling his family’s fortunes on so risky and grandiose a venture. These journal entries, conveying with energy and emotion Udubon’s experience of risking everything on a dream—“Oh, America, Wife, Children and acquaintances, Farewell! ”—document an American icon’s transformation from a beleaguered backwoods artist and naturalist to the man who would become America’s premier ornithologist, illustrator of birds, and nature essayist. ; 9.10 X 5.90 X 1.90 inches; 504 pages

79 Baldassari, F. Seicento fiorentino. Sacred and profane allegories
Centro Di 2012 8870385043 Hardcover New in New dust jacket 
New book. Due to the weight this book is only for sale in the UK. Centro Di / Moretti, Florence, 2012. Hardcover. From gallery website: One of the highlights of the exhibition, Susanna at the Bath with Maids by Ottavio Vannini (1585-1644) , is a glorious example of the work of this iconic Florentine artist. Born in Florence, he trained in Rome under Anastasio Fuontebuoni and in Florence under Domenico Passignani. This picture presents Susanna at a well, bathing with the help of her handmaidens while the two elders in the background are plotting to falsely accuse her of adultery. The large marble fountain is reminiscent of the Ferrucci fountain at Palazzo Pitti. (price €350,000) This date of the painting corresponds to the artist’s return to Florence for the execution of the fresco at the Villa of the Imperial Hill (Villa del Poggio Imperiale) and that of his well-known work Rebecca and Eliezer at the Well, c.1626-27, now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Madonna and Child with the Infant St John the Baptist by Lorenzo Lippi (Florence, 1606-1656) portrays the Virgin seated with the Christ Child on her lap, reaching out to the cross held by the infant St John. Lippi trained in the early 1620s in the workshop of Matteo Rosselli. As Rosselli’s most faithful pupil, he assisted the master for over a decade, imitating his vividly pictorial style until the 1640s when he sought inspiration elsewhere. This work, dating from the early 1630s, demonstrates Lippi’s clear preference for religious themes in the early part of his career. The narrative character of the scene and the soft rendering of the draperies reflect the style of his teacher while showing his pictorial grasp of reality and naturalism. The sacredness of the iconography, expressed by the large haloes over the heads of the Madonna and St John, does not prevent the painter from emphasising the group’s affectionate and human character. Lippi’s reputation is undoubtedly destined to grow. Documents confirm that, by around 1655, Lippi was considered among the greatest of living Florentine painters and yet with the passing years his star has rather waned. However, paintings attributed to him that have recently come to light only serve to underline his talent. (price €150,000) The exhibition will be curated by Francesca Baldassari, an independent scholar in Florence who has achieved international recognition for her expertise on Florentine painting of the 17th and 18th centuries. She is the author of monographs on Tuscan artists of the period, Carlo Dolci, Cristoforo Munari, Giovanni Domenico Ferretti and Simone Pignoni as well as two important books on the period, in both English and Italian, La collezione Piero ed Elena Bigongiari. Il Seicento fiorentino tra favola e dramma and La Pittura del Seicento a Firenze. Indice degli artisti e delle loro opera. In addition she has contributed significant studies to artists working outside the Florentine Seicento and Settecento such as the Emilian artist Guercino and Amedeo Laini and Giacinto Gimignani, both from Pistoia. Seicento Fiorentino will be the fourth exhibition Dr Baldassari has curated for the Moretti Gallery, having previously curated exhibitions staged in the gallery in Florence. Navy cloth.

96 Barrow, Rosemary Lawrence Alma-Tadema
Phaidon Press 2003 071484358X Softcover As New 
Softcover in as new condition. Appears unread: spine unbent. Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912) was one of the finest and most distinctive of the Victorian painters. Dutch-born, he moved to London in 1870, and became famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean sea and sky. In this original and penetrating study, Rosemary Barrow presents an absorbing and often amusing portrait of an exuberant personality who carved out a brilliant career for himself at the heart of London s artistic and cultural elite. Most uniquely, she subjects the paintings to a fresh scrutiny, to reveal that Alma-Tadema, a knowledgeable student of antiquity, repeatedly used literary and archaeological allusions in his paintings to subvert their apparently innocent meaning. Neglected after his death, Alma-Tadema s paintings are once again admired for their exquisite beauty and their remarkable mastery of light, colour and texture. With its fresh and intriguing new insights into his personality and intentions as well as his works, this book now provides a challenging reassessment of a major artist and fascinating person. ; 11.42 X 9.84 X 0.94 inches; 208 pages
