Greek yiayia cooking for the next generation in Mina Stone's 'Cooking for Artists'

Featured spreads are from Mina Stone's best-selling cookbook, Cooking for Artists—inspired by the food she grew up cooking with her Greek yiayia. One of our favorite Holiday Gift Books for Food Lovers, 2019, this volume presents the dishes Stone developed as chef to galleries and artists including Gavin Brown's Enterprise and Urs Fischer, among many others. "I was twenty-four years old and had no idea what I was getting into," Stone writes in her Introduction. "I was freshly out of art school with a BFA in fashion and my own small line of dresses. I started cooking to support myself while I tried to build my label, and—long story short—I realized I crawled into bed with cookbooks much more often than with Vogue. I was never formally trained. I learned mostly on my own, mostly from cooking shows (yes!), and mostly from my eighty-six-year-old Greek yiayia, who cooks every single day the most delicious food you've ever had. She taught me to boil potatoes before roasting them, to make them extra-crispy and soft. She taught me to add the bulk of the olive oil after the food was cooked for full flavor and health. She taught me how to make chickpeas meltingly tender and transform them into the best stew with only four ingredients. She taught me how to cook in order to please people—figuring out what they like and incorporating it into the dish at hand, making more than you need, and going the extra mile."

Arthur Elgort celebrates the women he's loved

Photographer Arthur Elgort loves women. Certainly it's apparent in the title of his new book, but it's just as clear in the photographs themselves. Models, ballet dancers, painters and fashion insiders glow for Elgort's camera, emanating power and playfulness. One of our Staff Pick Holiday Gift Books for the fashion crowd, 2019, this sunny, chunky, sometimes risqué compendium was designed by Steve Hiett, designer of Elgort's best-selling and now highly collectible 1994 photobook, Arthur Elgort’s Models Manual. If you're in the market for 208 pages of new sass from one of America's great fashion photographers, this is the book for you.

Ken Price: Drawings

“Around 1970–71 Ken Price and I drove across country from Los Angeles to New York in my wife’s 1961 Mercedes Benz 190 SL hard- top coupe with red leather interior. Kenny smoked big cigars constantly the entire distance. In Oklahoma we saw several motorcycle races and went to a circus with a sideshow featuring a tiny trailer that was home to a midget lady named ‘Princess Marguerita.’ We paid for our tickets to see her and saw that we were her only audience. Everything was in miniature, and our heads touched the ceiling. She came out and said, ‘Hello, I am Princess Marguerita, do you like my home?’ We were awestruck, and time stood still. We nodded, smiled and headed for the door. Neither of us had ever seen anything quite like the princess. Even in the noise of New York City, where we saw lots of art and artists, we would continually reference our experience with Princess Marguerita. Years later, with the heavy smell of cigars never leaving the car, the experience with the princess never left our minds.” —Ed Ruscha, quoted by Jean-Pierre Criqui, in Ken Price: Drawings. Featured image is "The Beautiful West" (2005).

Poetry, prose, observations and dreams in 'Cobalt Blue: Writings from the Papers of Sam Francis'

Featured image is reproduced from Cobalt Blue, the Sam Francis Foundation's beautiful new clothbound collection of selected writings by the west coast abstract expressionist, whom we honor today on Veteran's Day. "Dear R," one entry reads, "What we want is to make something that fills utterly the sight and can't be used only to make life bearable. If the arts of the past were, in a way, a means of making the unbearable bearable, or the visible sumptuous, then let us now strip away from the yellow that intention. This painting is for the greatest cloud that ever soared over the inlaid sea.
Do you lie dreaming under the huge canvas?"

Surprising 'Félix Vallotton' is on view at The Met

Along with Roberta Smith at the New York Times and Brenda Cronin at the Wall Street Journal, we've eagerly awaited the opening of Félix Vallotton at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, en route from the Royal Academy of Arts, London. The first Vallotton retrospective in the United States in almost three decades, it's a sharp revelation, for the artist was one of the nineteenth century's greatest satirists of bourgeois mores. Cronin quotes curator Ann Dumas, who likens "Vallotton’s psychologically charged sensibility to that of director Alfred Hitchcock, who built mystery and suspense in his films." In regards to The Lie (Le Mensonge) (1897), featured here, Dumas notes Vallotton's ability to play with "ideas of deceit, betrayal, the darker side of social conventions, particularly of the Parisian bourgeoisie at the time… Clearly one of the protagonists is lying, but who is lying to whom and what about will always remain an enigma."

Long lost NYC photos by Magnum master, Bruce Gilden

"To make a long story short, I’m not a very organized person and when I moved from the loft where I had been living for thirty-five years in New York City, I piled up thousands of negatives in cardboard boxes and never opened them for three years. Last year in the summer, I was home with someone who worked for me and in a cleaning frenzy, we started looking at all the old New York prints that I had in my studio in Beacon where I live now. I remembered some of them and others not, so I decided to go through my old negatives and contact sheets. I spent practically the whole summer of 2018 looking through more than two thousand rolls. It was an anthropologist’s job and when I discovered these images, I was very surprised because I didn’t think that I had anything on these rolls. There are no clinkers. When I say 'clinkers' I’m being hard on myself. So I mean that there are very few mediocre pictures: I’ve looked at them numerous times now and they’re good through and through. I had found a gold mine!
Right away I thought this is going to be a fantastic New York book! It’s even tighter than my two other books and there will hardly be any flash photos in this book. So what was interesting about the whole story is that it felt like I had created a whole new body of work, and if I had died this work would never have seen the light of day. Nobody has my eye or my patience to go through it all, so it would have been lost forever. And that’s why we gave it the title of Lost and Found. — Bruce Gilden

Art in the age of Black Power. 'Soul of a Nation' opens at de Young

“I feel it is my moral obligation as a black artist to try to graphically document what I feel socially,” David Hammons said in 1969, one year before he made this haunting double self-portrait. Titled “Black First, America Second” (1970), this body print and silkscreen on paper presents one version of the self that “clings to the stars of the national flag,” according to Soul of a Nation originating curators Mark Godfrey and Zoé Whitley, “while the other self appears almost painfully cleaved by its stripes… [It] is an image both timely and resolutely of its time.” This work and 235 others are featured in Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, the exhibition catalog of the decade, published to accompany the international traveling survey that opens today at the de Young Museum in San Francisco.

"This book is a tool for women whose rising expectations are running into the wall of patriarchal privilege: the women who are aggrieved at the discrepancy between their expectations of expanded choice and room to grow and the reality of male resistance. Whether women wish to file job discrimination complaints, equal pay suits or start their own separatist venture, this catalog presents answers, aids, tools produced by the feminist movement in battle against sexism," authors Kirsten Grimstad and Susan Rennie write in the Introduction.

'Black Lives 1900: W.E.B. Du Bois at the Paris Exposition' is a book for every art or history bookshelf

Featured spread—juxtaposing W.E.B. Du Bois' graph showing the "Proportion of Freemen and Slaves among American Negroes" from 1790 through 1870 with a portrait captioned "Young woman, head and shoulders portrait"—is from Black Lives 1900: W.E.B. Du Bois at the Paris Exposition, a beautifully designed, oversized book of supreme intrinsic power that belongs on every art or American history bookshelf. Combining the photographs and hand-drawn infographics documenting the state and statistics of black lives in America that Du Bois presented at the Paris Exposition of 1900, it contains writing by Jacqueline Francis, Stephen G. Hall, David Adjaye and Henry Louis Gates Jr.. "I find this lush and exquisitely produced book essential to my understanding of a historical event that did much to change my perception of DuBois, and his brilliant expansiveness," Hilton Als writes. "It's marvelous to have this 'lost' material between covers now, and forever."

'The Art of Film Projection' is both manifesto and how-to guide

Some day, analog film projection may be a thing of the past, a distant romantic memory akin to phone calls made via rotary phone or transport by way of horse drawn carriage. And yet, film projection is an art, a human intervention, inseparable from the creation of the medium itself, and so far, the results are superior to anything available in the digital sphere. The people at George Eastman Museum know this, and they've put together a book that is basically perfect, even as it cites its own willingness to morph over future iterations. A beautifully designed hardcover with classic stamping and ribbon, this supremely giftable "beginners guide" is at once manifesto, time-capsule of connoisseurship and how-to manual. "Cinema will always be an art form that exists in three dimensions," Tacita Dean and Christopher Nolan write, "it requires a projector and projectionist, as much as it needs the physical volume of the theatre and an audience to watch it. Knowledge of changeover cues, aspect ratios and loop sizes is not the arcane information of a lost era but the expertise necessary to project a film correctly today. To disrespect the role of the projectionist is to disrespect cinema itself."

Edited by Todd Bradway with primary texts by Barry Schwabsky and contributions by Susan A. Van Scoy, Robert R.

We are proud to say it's been a critic's pick at a wide diversity of publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Library Journal, New Criterion, New York Magazine and Hyperallergic, where Peter Malone writes, "above and beyond the volume’s intelligence and visual sumptuousness, I believe Landscape Painting Now, could play a significant role in our conversations about contemporary painting and its meaning."

JR: Chronicles, reinventing photography for the 21st century

Featured image is a detail from The Chronicles of New York City (2019), an epic mural featuring more than 1,000 New Yorkers, reproduced from JR: Chronicles. This bright, beautifully designed clothbound volume with custom tipped-on cover image was published to accompany the artist's first major exhibition in North America, on view now at the Brooklyn Museum, where the monumental collage serves as the centerpiece. "In the summer of 2018, JR and his team spent a month roaming all five boroughs of New York City, parking their 53-foot-long trailer truck in numerous locations and taking photographs of passersby who wished to participate," curators Drew Sawyer and Sharon Matt Atkins explain. They conclude, "from his early documentation of graffiti artists as a teenager in Paris to his large-scale architectural interventions in cities worldwide to his more recent digitally collaged murals that create collective portraits of diverse publics, his projects have always sought to bring people together. Along with the Internet and social media, JR has reinvented the medium of photography and its relationship to global citizenry in the twenty-first century."

Launching tonight at the Strand, it was singled out by Roberta Smith in The New York Times. Sugimoto's photographs, she writes, "have stretched and reshaped the concepts of time, space and light endemic to the medium, and in the process they have altered our grasp of history, visual perception and existence itself. He has anointed fossils 'the pre-photography time-recording device' and called photography 'a process of making fossils out of the present.'"

Staff favorite "Séance" documents Shannon Taggart's quest for Spiritualist ectoplasm

The story of Kate and Margaret Fox (pictured in Shannon Taggart's remarkable new photography book, Séance, here photographed before the headstone of Anna Leah (Fox) Underhill, Kate and Margaret's sister and manager) "is a Spiritualist microcosm," Taggart writes. "Every topic tackled in this book traces back to their lives, including table-tipping, spirit materialization, automatic writing, communication with dead celebrities, technology's spiritual shadow, the scientific scrutiny paid to mediumistic bodies and the specter of fraud that haunts it all. My own initiation experience even echoes theirs—pubescent girl learns of a wrongful death from a restless spirit. The sisters' strange saga illustrates just how deeply intertwined fact and fiction are in Spiritualism. Their biography is a head-spinning tale of confusion—phenomenal feats of mediumship and displays of verifiable evidence, admissions of fraud, demonstrations of trickery and a series of recanted confessions. Even after their deaths in the 1890s, the story continued. In 1904, an incomplete human skeleton was unearthed from the Foxes' cellar, near a peddler's tin box. In 1905, Margaret Fox's doctor publicly testified that an immobilized Margaret produced hundreds of loud knocks in the walls, ceiling and floor of her room in the hours before her death. Today, historian Paul Gaunt is using primary sources to propose that the sisters' story is even weirder than it stands on record. In his retelling, the adults started communicating with the noisy spirit by using coded knocking and the young girls caught it like a virus. The phenomenon followed them wherever they went."
