Vermeer. The Complete Works. Karl Schütz. Directed and produced by Benedict Taschen. 2017.
Just 35 works make up the complete known oeuvre of Johannes Vermeer (1632–1675) but in their combination of mimesis and mystery, they have secured his place as one of the most admired artists in history. This book brings together the complete catalogue of Johannes Vermeer, presenting the calm yet compelling scenes so treasured in galleries across Europe and the United States into one monograph of utmost reproduction quality. With new photography of many works, Vermeer’s restrained but richly evocative repertoire of domestic actions—ranging from letter writing to music making to preparations in the kitchen—unfolds in generous format.
Art Deco. Norbert Wolf. Prestel; 2017.
Virtually no style has left its mark on the image of an age as profoundly as Art Deco. From its origins in Paris, it asserted its influence throughout the world. This book draws our attention back to the birth of Art Deco―a period between two devastating world wars when industrialization was flourishing, interest in archaeology was peaking, and movements such as Cubism, Constructivism, Futurism, and Modernism were turning the art world on its head. Author Norbert Wolf traces the chronology of the Art Deco style by looking at the politics and culture of Europe in the 1920s and early 1930s, and the artistic movements that paralleled its popularity. He follows Art Deco’s influence in Europe and its immigration to the Americas and Asia. Most importantly, this wide-ranging volume looks beyond the era of Art Deco’s origination to the present day.
