Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to MatissePainting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse

Published by Royal Academy Publications.
Text by Monty Don, Ann Dumas, Heather Lemonedes, Jamies Priest, William Robinson.

While depictions of gardens are found throughout history, the impressionists were among the first to portray gardens directly from life, focusing on their color and form rather than using them as a background. This volume explores the close, symbiotic relationship between artists and gardens that developed during the latter part of the 19th and first part of the 20th centuries, centering on Monet, a great horticulturalist as well as a great artist who cultivated gardens wherever he lived, and the creation of his masterpiece garden at Giverny, where he painted his renowned water-lilies series.
Beautifully illustrated with masterpieces by Monet and later painters—Renoir, Bonnard, Sargent, Klee, Kandinsky and Matisse, among others—Painting the Modern Garden traces the evolution of the garden theme from impressionist visions of light and atmosphere to retreats for reverie, sites for bold experimentation, sanctuaries, and, ultimately, signifiers of a world restored to order—a paradise regained.

Cecily Brown & Jim Lewis: The English GardenCecily Brown & Jim Lewis: The English Garden

Published by Karma, New York.

Like nature, only better. Nature with all the awkward bits smoothed out. And then picturesque, like a landscape painting, states Jim Lewis' protagonist, defining an English garden in Cecily Brown's newest book of paintings. An imaginative pas de deux, The English Garden sees British painter Brown (born 1969) and American writer Lewis (born 1963) contribute acutely detailed and darkly sensuous allusions to the traditional 18th-century English landscape garden.
Thirty-nine of Brown's paintings are interspersed throughout this compact hardcover publication as tipped-in images. The largely abstract works, with glimpses of figurative elements, are a dichotomy of warm and subdued strokes of color, each containing an expansive landscape unto itself. Novelist and critic Jim Lewis' story transports the reader to the English countryside and investigates the seductive pull of the natural world in tandem with Brown's paintings. Combining two major voices in contemporary literature and painting, this volume is a truly gorgeous production.

The Wirtz GardensThe Wirtz Gardens

Part III

Published by Wirtz International.
Photographs by Bertrand Limbour.

“[Jacques Wirtz's] painterly handling of light and shadow, like that of 17th-century Flemish painters, gives him 'a great power to evoke space . . . '” —Pilar Viladas, The New York Times

The third installment in the acclaimed, gorgeously designed Wirtz Gardens publications presents 32 gardens designed by the Belgian landscape-design virtuosos Peter Wirtz, Martin Wirtz and Jacques Wirtz—a mixture of private, public and corporate projects in Belgium, Switzerland, Japan, the US, France and England. For the first time, private projects in the US and Switzerland are shown, alongside more unusual projects such as the cloister gardens of the Hauterive Abbey in Switzerland; Wirtz's 2012 stage set for a Dior fashion show; and a secluded Japanese garden with a view of Mount Fuji. Every garden is accompanied, as it was before, by its plan and a brief text.

Jacques Wirtz founded his practice in Schoten, Belgium, in 1950. The company has since become a thriving family business, with Wirtz’s two sons, Martin and Peter, joining the firm. Gardens in Belgium and all its neighboring countries, plus Italy, Switzerland and the US, are underway; past work has been undertaken in Japan, Spain and Portugal.

Wirtz International’s private projects range from small courtyards to large estates, corporate headquarters, business parks and housing developments; public projects consist of parks, boulevards, city squares, university campuses, museums and streetscapes.

Gardens in Perpetual BloomGardens in Perpetual Bloom

Botanical Illustration in Europe and America 1600-1850

Published by MFA Publications.
Text by Nancy Keeler.

Originally developed as an aid to professional herbalists, botanical illustration quickly blossomed into an art form in its own right. The first flower books were intended as medicinal guides, or else illustrated volumes that catalogued the elaborate and extensive gardens of the well-to-do. But when Carl Linnaeus first classified the plant kingdom in 1735, the botanical book quickly took on a more scientific cast. By the nineteenth century, the flourishing of botanical publications reflected both the rapid rise of gardening as an amateur hobby and the desire of artists and decorators for new visual resources. Gardens in Perpetual Bloom: Botanical Illustration in Europe and America 1600–1850 traces the appreciation of flowers and their depiction, from the studious world of monks and princes to the era of the gardening enthusiast. The book's 110 prints and drawings—which include masterful engravings by Georg Dionysus Ehret, the eighteenth century's most accomplished botanical artist, and hand-colored prints by Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the premier draftsman of flowers for Marie Antoinette and Josephine Bonaparte—are remarkable for their technical virtuosity, delicate tonalities, scientific accuracy and seemingly infinite variety. Gardens in Perpetual Bloom is both a valuable historical survey and an affordable, attractively designed volume of jewel-like beauty.

Hannah Höch: Picture BookHannah Höch: Picture Book

Published by The Green Box.
Afterword by Gunda Luyken. Translated by Brian Currid.

A central figure in the Berlin Dada circle, friend to Kurt Schwitters and Piet Mondrian and lover of Raoul Hausmann, Hannah Höch (1889-1972) is probably the most important female artist from the German modernist period. She is best known for her pioneering works of photomontage, which briskly juxtapose mechanical and organic forms, ancient and contemporary bodies, symbols and text drawn from brands and headlines, also edging feminism, commodity critique and other political concerns into the mix. "It is striking how contemporary to us much of Höch's work feels," Luc Sante wrote recently, "in its sexual politics, its humor, its gleeful appropriation of anything and everything at hand." In 1945, Höch made this fantastical full-color children's book, which chronicles the adventures of the four mythical creatures Runfast, Dumblet, Snifty and Meyer in an enchanted garden, combining photomontage with the hallucinatory plant imagery she had come to favor. It is published here for the first time.

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.

Anna ZemánkováAnna Zemánková

Published by Kant.
Edited by Anežka Šimková, Terezie Zemánková. Preface by Roger Cardinal. Text by Eva Ko?átková, Terezie Zemánková, Manuel Anceau, Pascale Jeanneret, Bruno Decharme. Interview by Pavel Konecný.

“I am growing flowers that are not grown anywhere else”: the fantastical botanica of an Art Brut genius

The work of Czech painter, draftsman and pastel artist Anna Zemánková (1908–86) defies easy definition and categorization. As a self-taught artist, Zemánková tends to be described as Art Brut, but her Art Brut is of a mysterious and magical strain. Her work gives the viewer the impression of entering a herbarium of fantastical extraterrestrial plants or a unique, imaginary world, always created by the artist using newly discovered and often surprising techniques.

This extraordinary new publication presents a representative selection of Zemánková’s drawings, collages, objects and assemblages, accompanied by texts written by experts and researchers including Roger Cardinal, Eva Kotátková, Terezie Zemánková, Manuel Anceau, Pascale Jeanneret and Bruno Decharme. These are not staid scholarly essays; each contributor tries in their own way to understand the inherent mystery of Zemánková’s art. Readers are invited to join them on a journey through Zemánková’s visionary work.
