Pierre-Joseph Redouté: Botanical Artist to the Court of FrancePierre-Joseph Redouté: Botanical Artist to the Court of France

Published by nai010 publishers.
Text by Pieter Baas, Terry van Druten, Pascale Heurtel, Alain Pougetoux, et al.

Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759–1840) is the undisputed master of botanical art. His illustrations of flowers represent a unique fusion of botanical precision with artistic elegance. As court artist to Queen Marie-Antoinette and Empress Joséphine, Redouté drew extraordinary flowers and plants from the Jardin des plantes and the gardens of Malmaison, which made him the darling of Parisian society. Napoleon presented his books as gifts to the crowned heads of Europe, and Redouté’s images illustrated the works of the most eminent scientists of his day. His most famous books, Les Liliacées and Les Roses, are among the milestones of botanical literature. Accompanying a survey of his works at the Teylers Museum in the Netherlands, this richly illustrated publication presents a wide selection of Redouté’s books, drawings and watercolors. Several short essays by Dutch and French specialists offer a comprehensive overview of the key aspects of his art.

Odilon RedonOdilon Redon

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Raphaël Bouvier, Jodi Hauptman, Margret Stuffmann.

Odilon Redon’s oeuvre marks the threshold between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries, and thus also represents the interplay between tradition and innovation. Fractures and contrasts characterize his artistic development, from the black-and-white of his early, dark lithographs and works in charcoal to the veritable explosions of color in his bright pastels and oils. Bizarre monsters appear alongside heavenly creatures in a blend of dream and nightmare, nature and vision. Tending toward internalization, the mythic, sacred and biological motifs in Redon’s works underwent a turn toward the mystical, not only on account of his subject matter, but also through the aesthetic aspects of color and form. Greatly admired by contemporaries such as Paul Cézanne and Edgar Degas, Redon influenced artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Marcel Duchamp, as well as the Surrealists. The artist’s brilliant ideas and his contextually, technically and materially multifaceted body of work are presented in this catalogue.
Born in France to a prosperous family, Odilon Redon (1840–1916) began drawing at an early age and moved to Paris after unsuccessful forays into architecture and sculpture. Redon began his career working primarily in charcoal and lithography, before transitioning to oils and pastels in the 1890s. With his keen interest in literature, Redon found champions and collaborators in Joris-Karl Huysmans, Emile Hennequin and, most significantly, the Symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé. Redon’s work achieved international renown after being exhibited at the American Armory Show in 1913.

The Arthur and Hedy Hahnloser CollectionThe Arthur and Hedy Hahnloser Collection

An Eye for Art Shared with Artists

Published by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers.
Text by Angelika Affentranger-Kirchrath, Margrit Hahnloser-Ingold, Rudolf Koella, Henriette Hahnloser, Ursula Perucchi-Petri, Lukas Gloor.

As the last embers of Impressionism flickered out amid the early stirrings of the modernist avant garde, the collector couple Arthur and Hedy Hahnloser were on hand to speed French painting's transition into the twentieth century. Between 1905 and 1936, the Hahnlosers assembled a small but breathtaking collection of works by the leaders of the Nabi and Fauve movements, and their precursors Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne and Auguste Renoir. Buying directly at modest prewar rates from artists that were still making their names, such as Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, Odilon Redon, Georges Rouault, Aristide Maillol, Félix Vallotton and Edouard Vuillard, the Hahnlosers nursed French painting of the nineteenth century into the twentieth century. During the First World War, their house, the Villa Flora in Wintherthur, Switzerland, provided refuge for many of these artists, and Bonnard and Vallotton in particular developed close friendships with the couple. (Félix Vallotton's critical judgment informed their acquisition of works by Van Gogh and Cézanne, and after the artist's death Hedy Hahnloser wrote Vallotton's biography.) Now, in this volume authored by the art historian Margrit Hahnloser-Ingold, also the couple's granddaughter, the story of this legendary collection is told for the first time. Alongside 250 color plates, The Hahnloser Collection offers a chronology detailing the couple's purchases, their travels and their relationships with artists, in an unprecedented insider peek into the world of the Nabis, the Fauves and turn-of-the-century French painting.

Emil Nolde: My Garden Full of FlowersEmil Nolde: My Garden Full of Flowers

Published by DuMont.
Edited by Manfred Reuther.

This new title in DuMont's themed Emil Nolde series is devoted to the painter's garden and flower pictures. Wherever he settled, Nolde always planted a flower garden. Nolde's garden at Seebüll is a particular focus of this volume, and one of the artist's most marvelous creations, designed as it is around motifs using the initials A and E (for his wife Ada and his own name). A sumptuous compilation, this new edition of My Garden Full of Flowers includes larger plates.

Sanna Kannisto: FieldworkSanna Kannisto: Fieldwork

Published by Aperture.
Text by Steve Baker.

The first major monograph by Finnish rising star Sanna Kannisto, Fieldwork explores the dialectics of nature and culture in both artistic and scientific contexts. Since 1997, Kannisto has spent several months per year living alongside biologists in the rainforests of Latin America. Adopting elements of her companions' scientific methods, she developed her own form of visual research, extending her depictions of flora and fauna beyond the confines of the natural sciences. Breaking away from the conventions of nature photography, which typically presents specimens in isolation, devoid of context, Kannisto's work addresses the acts of staging and image-making. Her photographs, with their biologically correct titles, show not only the breathtaking beauty of her subjects, but also the tools used to achieve the would-be image at center--the black drapes, the difficult "neutral" lighting rig, the seamless white background. Signs of a scientifically standardized process--graph paper, rulers, test field markings--are also included, appearing strangely out of place amid the lush green foliage of the rainforest. The core practice of the natural sciences is to collect in order to inspect closely in the service of public knowledge. Collecting implies taming and containment, traits shared to some extent by photography. With her gentle humor, Kannisto recognizes and utilizes the constraints of science and art alike, investigating the concept of truth in photography to challenge how we view and "know" the natural world.

Claude Monet: Water LiliesClaude Monet: Water Lilies

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Ann Temkin, Nora Lawrence.

Claude Monet (1840-1926) devoted the last 25 years of his career to paintings of the Japanese-style pond and gardens of his house in Giverny, France. Two of these luminous panels--"Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond," a mural-sized triptych, and "Water Lilies," a single canvas--are among the most well-known and beloved works in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. The aim of these paintings, according to the artist, was to supply "the illusion of an endless whole, of water without horizon or bank." These late works were for many years less appreciated than Monet's classic Impressionist works, oftentimes seen as unstructured, even unfinished. But with the emergence of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s, Monet became an extraordinarily relevant predecessor. In 1955, The Museum of Modern Art became the first American museum to acquire one of Monet's large-scale water lily compositions. In 1958, when a fire destroyed this and another water lily painting, the public's widespread expression of loss led to the acquisition of the works currently in the collection. This lively volume recounts the history of Monet's water lilies at the Museum underscores the resonance of these paintings with the art and artists of the last half-century.

Sarah JonesSarah Jones

Published by Violette Editions.
Text by Brian Dillon, David Campany. Interview by A.M. Homes.

The photographs of Sarah Jones address established pictorial genres and our associated expectations by paring back space, subject and gesture. This book--the first major monograph on this young British artist--brings together work from an 18-year period, including many photographs never previously published, and looks at the themes and concerns that have remained constants in her work. The sequence of images chosen and arranged by the artist specifically for this publication is informed by Jones’ interest in how we see and represent her chosen subjects, using tropes from the stereograph, the double, the still life and portraiture. Jones first gained notice in the late 1990s for her photographs taken in psychoanalysts’ consulting rooms. These provocative sites have been explored through her practice over the years, in particular the couches that, in Jones’s images, show visible signs of the imprint of the patients who had reclined upon them during consultation. Her well-known later studies of adolescent girls uncomfortably caught in the flash of the camera in domestic settings draw attention to the staged relationship between model, photographer and location. Recent diptychs of horses and rose bushes refer to the viewing of early stereographic prints and explore the potential for photography to reveal uncanny perspectives on a subject. In The Rose Gardens series, Jones photographs the front and back of rose bushes in public gardens so that viewers can contemplate both viewpoints simultaneously. Jones’ overarching imperative is to look at subjects stripped back to an emotional truth. The imprints on the couches, the view of the roses that are beginning to wilt and the glazed look in the eyes of her models all investigate ideas of beauty and ritualized everyday gesture.

Published by Dallas Museum of Art/Walker Art Center.
Text by Jeffrey Grove, Olga Viso, Bill Arning, Susan Griffin, Helen Molesworth.

Since the late 1980s, Jim Hodges’ poetic reconsiderations of the material world have inspired a body of multimedia work in which the manmade and artificial are invested with emotion and authenticity.

Born in 1957 in Spokane, Washington, New York-based artist Jim Hodges has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and in Europe, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial and a solo exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Hodges’ work is included in the collections of notable institutions, among them the Dallas Museum of Art; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
