Restored by Venetian Heritage With The Support of Bulgari

Published by Marsilio Editori.

A new undertaking by Venetian Heritage and Bulgari for Venetian art offers the occasion to rediscover two paintings by Paolo Veronese, a great master of Venetian Renaissance art.

Two paintings by Paolo Veronese, Saint Jerome in the Desert and Saint Agatha in Prison, dating to 1566 and located in the church of San Pietro Martire in Murano, have been recently restored, together with their seventeenth-century gilded frames. Before the restoration, the paintings were in bad condition, very dark and scarcely readable, due to the application of varnishes that had oxidized over the years. The rich and unusual seventeenth-century frames, sculpted and gilded, were also in bad condition. Both works are relatively unknown because of their position in a lesser-known location and the poor condition they were in before the current restoration. The restoration has brought back to life the brilliant colors of the canvases and the vigorous gilded carvings of the frames, giving also the occasion to study their provenance and commission as well as their conservation history.

South American Paintings 1600-1825 from the Thoma Collection

Published by Skira.
By Suzanne L. Stratton-Pruitt.

There is astonishingly little literature in English on painting in the Viceroyalty of Peru. Published in association with the Cantor Center for Visual Arts, this exhibition catalogue explores a little known aspect of the history of art that is increasingly appreciated for its energy and originality.Although the initial impetus for paintings in South America was provided by artists who came from Europe, they were soon outnumbered by natives who become proficient in decorating churches and public buildings. The 56 paintings—never previously published—in the Thoma Collection offer an accurate and compelling survey of the diverse schools of painting that developed in the vast regions of the Viceroyalty which yielded the present day countries of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina.Exhibition schedule: Cantor Center for Visual Arts, Stanford University September 20-December 31, 2006.



Suzanne L. Stratton-Pruitt is Curator of the Thoma Collection and author of several volumes including The Immaculate Conception in Spanish Art (1994).

Andres Serrano: SalvationAndres Serrano: Salvation

Published by Hatje Cantz.

Andres Serrano (born 1950), one of the most celebrated representatives of contemporary photography and art, achieved major prominence for his work “Piss Christ,” which to this day has not lost any of its unsettling impact. Religion, sexuality and death are pervasive elements of his oeuvre.

Raised as a Catholic in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Serrano became curious about the Hasidic community there from an early age. An invitation to Israel expanded his artistic repertoire: using a Mamiya RB67, he approached the subject of religious faith via the landscape and the people. He visited sacred sites in Bethlehem, Ramallah, Galilee and the Dead Sea; came closer to people step by step, picture by picture, following them through their everyday lives and to celebrations, ultimately depicting the traces of the identity of an entire nation in their faces, in intense studio photographs.

ZurbaránZurbarán

A New Perspective

Published by Fundación Colección Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Text by Odile Delenda, Mar Borobia, Almudena Ros, José Fernández, Enrique Valdivieso, Benito Navarrete.

This volume offers the most comprehensive overview in print--and the first substantial English-language monograph in decades--on the great 17th-century Spanish painter Zurbarán. It spans his entire career, from his earliest commissions to key works from his mature period, plus works recently rediscovered over the past few years.
A contemporary of Velázquez, Zurbarán developed an austere vision that combined exacting realism with a palpable mysticism. Though he was sometimes known as "the Spanish Caravaggio" for his harsh use of chiaroscuro, Zurbarán's particular achievement was his creation of a more austere quietism, and a less foreboding if more melancholy atmosphere--qualities which lent themselves ideally to such genres as still lifes and his portraits of monks and martyrs, and which also ensured his importance for early modernism (especially Cubism).
Examining this beloved painter's oeuvre across six themed sections, Zurbarán: A New Perspective includes work by a selection of his most talented pupils, and by his son Juan de Zurbarán, also a superb still-life painter.
Francisco Zurbarán (1598-1664) is closely associated with the city of Seville, where he served his apprenticeship, and where his most famous painting, the ca. 1631 "Apotheosis of Saint Thomas Aquinas," now resides, at the Seville Museum. Zurbarán served as court painter to Philip IV, who is said to have revered him as "painter to the king, king of painters."

The Christian Year in PaintingThe Christian Year in Painting

Published by Art / Books.
Text by John S. Dixon.

The stories of Christianity and painting have been intertwined since at least the Middle Ages. The painters of the early, high and late Renaissance in Italy, Spain and northern Europe learned their art and craft while working in the service of both the Church and devout patrons, producing depictions of scenes from the Bible and the lives of the saints for the benefit and instruction of clergy and worshippers alike.

This book follows a course through the Christian year—from Advent and the Christmas season, through Holy Week and Easter and the periods of Ordinary Time—to present 30 works celebrating the key events and festivals of the liturgical calendar by some of the best-known names from art history. Velázquez, Piero della Francesca, Rembrandt, Raphael, Giotto, Titian and Caravaggio are just some of the many celebrated artists included in the book with their representations of feasts such as the Immaculate Conception, the Annunciation, the Nativity, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, Pentecost and All Saints.

Historian John S. Dixon guides the reader by offering detailed analysis of the formal qualities and symbolism of each painting, while outlining the biblical stories that inspired their creation and explaining their religious and art historical significance. Full illustrations and close-up details of the featured works are accompanied by comparative illustrations of paintings and sculptures of the subjects by other masters. This beautiful book will enable all lovers of painting, both Christian and non-Christian, to expand their appreciation of these magnificent works of art.
