NEW Architectural Space in Eighteenth-Century Europe Constructing Identities and Interiors
Edited by Denise Amy Baxter, University of North Texas, USA and Meredith Martin, Wellesley College, USA
This ne collection of essays makes an important contribution to the literature on 18th-century architectural space as it was constructed and experienced across Europe...the essays uniformly move beyond questions of individual architects and period styles to consider issues of patronage and politics, class and gender. Laura Auricchio, Parsons New School for Design, author of Adlade Labille-Guiard: Artist in the Age of Revolution This volume explores how a diverse, pan-European group of eighteenth-century patrons among them bankers, bishops, bluestockings, and courtesans used architectural space and dcor to shape and express identity. Representing the work of scholars from several disciplines, the book links contemporary critical theory with a historically specic approach, grounding ideas of space and the self within the visual and material remains of interiors in eighteenthcentury Europe Contents: Introduction: constructing space and identity in the 18th-century interior, Denise Amy Baxter; Section I Crossing Boundaries, Making Space: The ascendancy of the interior in 18th-century French architectural theory, Meredith Martin; Trs belle, agrable, et bien meuble: the Electoral palace at Saint-Cloud in the early 18th century, Max Tillman; In the right place at the right time: political propaganda in the Archiepiscopal palace of Wrzburg, Csongor Kis; Getting plastered: ornamentation, iconography, and the desperate faction, Katherine R.P. Clark.

The Borghese Collections and the Display of Art in the Age of the Grand Tour
Carole Paul, University of California, USA
(a) meticulous account of the display of the Borghese collection of paintings and antiquities in eighteenthcentury Rome Times Literary Supplement This is a work of tremendous distinction and is a vital key to our growing understanding of the art and culture of the eighteenth century. Christopher Johns, Vanderbilt University, USA This is a comprehensive study of the late-eighteenth-century redecoration of the exhibition spaces at the Borghese palace and villa in Rome and the reinstallation of the familys vast art collection.

Craft, Space and Interior Design, 18552005

Edited by Sandra Alfoldy, NSCAD University, Halifax, Canada, and Janice Helland, Queens University, Kingston, Canada
The collected essays in Craft, Space and Interior Design, 1855-2005 make a pioneering contribution to the eld of crafted space, a term used to dene the symbiotic relationship between architectural space and the objects that animate it.

The book unravels the complex ways in which craft controls, manipulates, organises and denes space, to highlight how the relationship between craft and space can be understood as a form of communication between related parts that combine to form a unied whole.

The Idol in the Age of Art Objects, Devotions and the Early Modern World
Edited by Michael W. Cole, University of Pennsylvania, USA and Rebecca Zorach, University of Chicago, USA
St Andrews Studies in Reformation History both convincing and well illustrated this book deserves to be commended as a highly creative stimulus to our thinking on the period. Art and Christianity Conicting attitudes towards devotional art was a major factor in the confessional divisions that split Reformation Europe. Approaching the Reformation idol as an essentially international problem, and placing particular emphasis on cultural encounters, it provides fresh perspectives on the very nature of Renaissance art, and underscores how colonial issues came to be often framed in terms of European religious conicts.

Material Culture
Material Cultures, 17401920 The Meanings and Pleasures of Collecting
Edited by John Potvin and Alla Myzelev, both at the University of Guelph, Canada
Interweaving considerations of identity and subjectivity, spatial contexts, materiality and meaning, this collection addresses the status and interpretation of visual and material culture. It argues that objects are conduits or signs of meanings, pleasures, and desires that are deeply subjective; more often than not, they reveal racial, gendered, and sexual identities. Through case studies, contributors demonstrate material and visual cultures to be less separate than current disciplinary ethos indicates.

The Netherlandish Image after Iconoclasm, 15661672 Material Religion in the Dutch Golden Age
Mia M. Mochizuki, Jesuit School of Theology, and Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California, USA
Winner of the ACE/Mercers International Book Award 2009 a beautiful book, illustrated with lots of wonderful images, all in colour The authors commitment and thorough engagement with her materials is also evidenced in generous footnotes and wide reading a remarkable contribution to the developing eld of early-modern religious art history. Art Newspaper Highly recommended. Choice Debunking the myth of the stark white Protestant church interior, this innovative book draws on art history, reformation history and theology to explain the impact of iconoclasm on the cultural topography of the Dutch Golden Age. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs of many objects never before published, this study identies a previously overlooked aspect of iconoclasm: while acknowledging its destructive force, Mochizuki also discloses its generative power and the remarkable creativity it unleashed.

Negotiating Secular and Sacred in Medieval Art Christian, Islamic, and Buddhist
Edited by Alicia Walker, Washington University in St. Louis, USA and Amanda Luyster, College of the Holy Cross, USA
Essays in this collection analyse the convergence between sacred and secular in medieval works of art and architecture, questioning the adequacy of those categories to describe medieval attitudes. Sacred and secular are shown to reect largely modern cultural frameworks, which can be useful as scholarly tools, but which risk imposing false dichotomies. This volume complicates and enriches our understanding of social realities across a broad spectrum of medieval worlds.

Material Culture in Art and Visual Studies 2010/11

Material Culture
General Editor: Michael Yonan, University of Missouri, USA

The Histories of Material Culture and Collecting, 17001950 provides a forum for the broad study of

object acquisition and collecting practices in their global dimensions from the eighteenth through the mid-twentieth centuries. The series seeks to illuminate the intersections between material culture studies, art history, and the history of collecting. HMCC takes as its starting point the idea that objects both contributed to the formation of knowledge in the past and likewise contribute to our understanding of the past today. The human relationship to objects has proven a rich eld of scholarly inquiry, with much recent scholarship either anthropological or sociological rather than art historical in perspective. Underpinning this series is the idea that the physical nature of objects contributes substantially to their social meanings, and therefore that the visual, tactile and sensual dimensions of objects are critical to their interpretation. HMCC therefore seeks to bridge anthropology and art history, sociology and aesthetics. For more details on submitting a book proposal for this new series, please contact Meredith Norwich, Commissioning Editor, mnorwich@ashgate.com

The Printed Image in Early Modern London Urban Space, Visual Representation, and Social Exchange
Joseph Monteyne, State University of New York, USA
Monteyne has read widely in social, religious and political history; in art history, literary theory and urban sociology; and employs a wide range of visual and textual sources to good effect. The result is a fantastic book that guides the reader from one interesting idea to the next through a series of insightful connections, much like a tourist navigating the metropolis by its landmarks. I hope this book will become a classic text for all scholars of early modern London. Journal of the Printing Historical Society Presenting an inventive body of research that explores the connections between urban movements, space and visual representation, this study offers the rst sustained analysis of the vital interrelationship between printed images and urban life in early modern London. It is distinguished by its close and sustained readings of individual prints, complemented with a thorough examination of the dynamics of print production as a commercial exchange.

Re-framing Representations of Women Figuring, Fashioning, Portraiting and Telling in the Picturing Women Project
Edited by Susan Shifrin, The Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art and Ursinus College, USA
Re-Framing Representations of Women is nothing short of exhilarating a cultural collaboration on a grand scale among scholars, artists, curators, and storytellers. The feminist images and essays assembled by editor Susan Shifrin provide the most comprehensive and nuanced picture to date of women in art, literature, fashion history, and material culture. Wendy Steiner, University of Pennsylvania, USA thoughtfully designed and well-illustrated volume Recommended. Choice Crossing disciplinary and chronological boundaries, this volume integrates text and image, essays and object pages to explore the processes inherent in gender representation, rather than resituating women in particular categories or spheres as other scholarly publications and exhibitions have done. It offers new and stimulating scholarship that confronts historical patterns of representation that have dened what women were and are seen to be.

Material Culture
The Religious Patronage of the Duke of Lerma, 15981621
Lisa A. Banner
Banners sound research, clear presentation of the material, and new conclusions make it a valuable contribution to a period that is nally receiving the scholarly attention it so richly deserves. Renaissance Quarterly This is an admirable and important book. Banners study will be fundamental to all future assessments of Lerma and will help to reassert the importance of religion in the life of early-modern Europe; she is to be congratulated on her achievement. Catholic Historical Review Introducing fresh archival evidence, author Lisa Banner here demonstrates how Francisco Gmez de Sandoval y Rojas, rst Duke of Lerma, served as a vital link in Habsburg architectural patronage. She traces how Lerma embarked on a career of renovating or building religious foundations in seventeenth-century Spain; and shows how his architectural patronage and involvement connected the foundations of Lerma indelibly with the traditions of noble patronage in Habsburg Spain.

NEW Rethinking the Interior, c. 18671896 Aestheticism and Arts and Crafts
Edited by Jason Edwards, University of York, UK and Imogen Hart, Yale Center for British Art, USA
This is an extremely important book that renegotiates and rewrites the somewhat conservative terrain of arts and crafts literature, and entices the pre-eminent scholarship on aestheticism away from literature into the areas of visual and material culture. Janice Helland, Queens University, Canada, author of British and Irish Home Art and- Industries 18801914: Marketing Craft, Making Fashion From Aesthetes in Africa to the cultural history of the teapot, this collection addresses the topic of eclectic relationships in Victorian decorative art. Rethinking the Interior, c. 1867-1896 argues that no rm demarcation exists between Aestheticism and Arts and Crafts, the two movements examined here.

Sample contents: Introduction. Re-reading the green dining room, Sally-Anne Huxtable; Superabundance and disorder: Ruskins two great evils and the church of St Mary, Studley Royal, Jane Hawkes; An enchanted interior: William Morris at Kelmscott House, Imogen Hart; Fearful consequences of living up to ones teapot: men, women and cultchah in the aesthetic movement, Anne Anderson; Of things both old and new: the work of Richard Coad and James MacLaren, Paul Holden; Paintings from nowhere: Walter Crane, socialism, and the aesthetic interior, Morna ONeill; The aesthetics of the community: queer interiors and the desire for intimacy, John Potvin; Bafing arrangements: Vernon Lee and John Singer Sargent in queer Tangier, Diana Maltz; Sculpture and aesthetic intent in the late Victorian interior, Martina Droth; Timeline; Bibliography; Index.

NEW The Sculpture of Reform in North Italy, ca 1095-1130 History and Patronage of Romanesque Faades
Dorothy F. Glass
Professor Glass has succeeded in writing the most important book on Italian Romanesque sculpture in decades. It is a brilliant study. She has done it with a superbly clear and spare style of writing, with effective visual analysis, and with supremely well informed argumentation based on the visual material and relevant textual sources. This is one of the most signicant art history studies I have read on Italian medieval art. Jaroslav Folda, University of North Carolina, USA Entirely fresh and original in its methodology, this monograph offers a new approach to the study of Romanesque faade sculpture, focused on such monuments as the Benedictine monasteries at Nonantola and San Benedetto Po and the cathedral at Modena. This study moves scholarship beyond well covered issues of style and connoisseurship, instead opening new and fruitful lines of inquiry into the patronage and historical signicance of these extraordinary monuments. Contents: Introduction; Papal politics, Papal culture; The geography of power, the power of geography: Mantua and San Benedetto Po; The Benedictine abbey of Nonantola: reframing history, debating theology; The cathedral at Modena: history and historiography; The reform programme at the cathedral of Modena; Beyond the centre: the cathedrals of Cremona and Piacenza; Conclusion; Bibliography; Index.

NEW The Viewer and the Printed Image in Late Medieval Europe
David S. Areford, University of Massachusetts, USA
Visual Culture in Early Modernity This is a splendid book, copiously illustrated and clearly and engagingly argued. While medievalists will relish it, anyone with an interest in prints or religious art will learn a great deal from it. The Art Newspaper Arefords compelling study restores to early prints, Italian as well as northern European, the urgency, vitality and interest that they commanded of their late medieval viewers. Learned, yet lively, his book breaks down barriers between high and low, and, most of all, for the modern viewer schooled to disregard popular printed imagery, between past and present ways of seeing. Jeffrey F. Hamburger, Harvard University, USA Structured around in-depth and interconnected case studies and driven by a methodology of material, contextual and iconographic analysis, this book argues that early European single-sheet prints, north and south, are best understood as highly accessible objects shaped and framed by individual viewers. David Areford offers a synthetic historical narrative of early prints that stresses their unusual material nature, as well as their accessibility to a variety of viewers. Contents: Introduction: the aura of the printed image; The materiality of the printed image; Acts of viewing; The ship and the skeleton: the prints of Jacopo Rubieri; Little Simons body; Printing the side wound of Christ; Epilogue; Bibliography; Index.

Katherine A. McIver, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA
Women and Gender in the Early Modern World Prize: Co-winner of the Society for the Study of Early Modern Women Book Award for a work published in 2006 The book cleverly lls in some of the lack of sources in English and aptly testies to the depth and liveliness of the cultural debate about women in Renaissance Italy between the 14th and 17th centuries The superb peculiarity of McIvers work consists in giving a new historical perspective on womens power, displayed in different manners and strategies in order to maintain and increase family properties, or even to advance their social status.
