Women painters, 1780 - 1830 The birth of a battle - Exhibition catalogue

In 1765, for the first time, the Nouvelles de la République des Lettres et des Arts, in the Revue du Salon de la correspondance pour les sciences et les arts, published a section entitled “women painters”.

This catalogue brings together works and documents that make it possible to understand how – i.e. under what conditions and according to what strategies – painters, because they are women, have had to learn the trade, enter the art scene, build their careers and forge their public figure.

Beata Heuman: Every Room Should Sing

Swedish-born, London-based interior designer Beata Heuman founded her eponymous studio in 2013 after working for Nicky Haslam for nine years. In a short amount of time her lively interiors and custom furnishings have made her one of today’s most in-demand creatives. Heuman’s rooms, colorful spaces enlivened by exuberant elements and poetic inspirations, capture her signature quirkiness and Scandinavian attention to detail while staying rooted in practicality. Lauded for international residential and commercial projects, Heuman has also garnered praise for her growing collection of bespoke fabrics, wallpaper, lighting, homewares, and furniture.
This beautifully crafted volume presents Heuman’s innovative approach in book form for the very first time. Organized according to design principle, each chapter offers fresh ways to think about decorating a home, finding your voice, making ordinary details extraordinary, and forging a truly unique space. Vibrant photographs showcase standout properties–including several London town houses and a Nantucket vacation residence–that are brought to life by cheerful color palettes, unexpected contrasts, and a dégagé use of bold patterns and texture. With original drawings and whimsical graphic details, this new tome is a dynamic look into the ethos and work of one of the most exciting names in interior design today.

J. C. Volkamer. The Book of Citrus Fruits

Have you ever thought of citrus fruits as celestial bodies, angelically suspended in the sky? Perhaps not, but J. C. Volkamer (1644–1720) did—commissioning an extravagant and breathtaking series of large-sized copperplates representing citrons, lemons, and bitter oranges in surreal scenes of majesty and wonder.

Ordering plants by post mostly from Italy, Germany, North Africa, and even the Cape of Good Hope, the Nuremberg merchant Volkamer was a devotee of the fragrant and exotic citrus at a time when such fruits were still largely unknown north of the Alps. His garden came to contain a wide variety of specimens, and he became so obsessed with the fruits that he commissioned a team of copperplate engravers to create 256 plates of 170 varieties of citrus fruits, many depicted life size, published in a two-volume work. The first volume appeared in 1708, with the impressively lengthy title The Nuremberg Hesperides, or: A detailed description of the noble fruits of the citron, lemon and bitter orange; how these may be correctly planted, cared for and propagated in that and neighboring regions.

In both volumes, Volkamer draws on years of hands-on experience to present a far-reaching account of citrus fruits and how to tend them—from a meticulous walk-through of how to construct temporary orangeries, glasshouses, and hothouses for growing pineapples to commentary on each fruit variety, including its size, shape, color, scent, tree or shrub, leaves, and country of origin.

Un château sur la Riviera - L'art de vivre par Oitoemponto

Discover a luxurious wine château and private residence in the south of France designed by the innovative architecture firm OITOEMPONTO.

Near the glittering coast of the French Riviera, surrounded by a luscious cru classé vineyard, OITOEMPONTO architects oversaw the renaissance of Château Saint-Maur de Cogolin through an assiduous, four-year renovation. Using refined materials, they created a sumptuous and relaxing oasis that combines art, signature design pieces, and a sense of harmony both inside and outside the château.

This volume traces the renovation, from initial watercolor sketches and photographs–reproduced here on offset paper–through to the finished private family residence. This exquisitely illustrated volume takes readers on an intimate tour of the immense reception rooms, bedrooms and suites, entertainment areas, and secret chambers in the vast 17,000-square-foot château. This reinvention into a splendid reception space of incomparable charm is the residence’s most luxurious incarnation to date.

Le Muse inquiete

In presenting the exhibition, Roberto Cicutto, President of La Biennale di Venezia, expressed his gratitude “for the generous support that the directors and staff of the Historical Archives and the entire Biennale have given to this project, parallel to their work on the exhibitions and festivals. It is one that bolsters La Biennale’s role as a hub of research in the contemporary arts, a fundamental driving force for investigating the present and future, and a strategic tool for development, even in terms of economic growth.”

For this exhibition, the directors have selected rare footage, first-hand accounts, and a range of artworks, following various lines of research to examine the many times when the history of La Biennale has overlapped with the history of the world—revealing or generating institutional rifts and political and ethical crises, but also new creative languages.

The exhibition is laid out in the rooms of the Central Pavilion and weaves its way through all six disciplines: from Fascism (1928-1945) to the Cold War and new world order (1948-1964), to the unrest of ’68 and the Biennales chaired by Carlo Ripa di Meana (1974-78), then from the postmodernism to the first Architecture Biennale and until the 1990s, and the beginning of globalization (see attached document “The Rooms” with details).

In a period of global instability that over the course of just a few months has brought a succession of environmental disasters, new pandemics, and social revolutions, La Biennale di Venezia serves as a wellspring and channel for the most innovative currents in the artistic disciplines of our era—but also continues to bear witness to the many shifts and crises that have supervened from the late nineteenth century to the present, like a seismometer recording the tremors of history.

MOM

The book’s title reveals the identity of its protagonist: Kathleen McCain Engman has been posing for her son Charlie since 2009. And yet MOM shows us a face we never really get to know: while we soon become acquainted with her freckled complexion and intense gaze, her position in the images becomes increasingly unclear. Engman first began shooting his mother because she was available, ever-willing to meet the demands of one of her children. But what began as a casual, organic process evolved into an intense collaboration. The result is neither a family album nor a filial tribute but a much deeper and far more complex interaction: one that raises questions about the limits of familiarity, the rules and boundaries of roles and representation, vulnerability and control, and what it means to look and to be seen.

Dune (Limited Edition)

Frank Herbert

Illustrated and signed by Sam Weber

Essays by Michael Dirda and Brian Herbert

Frank Herbert’s phenomenal tale of far-future desert warriors, fallible messiahs and interplanetary intrigue is newly crafted as a magnificent limited edition. Signed by Sam Weber, and encased in a spectacular presentation box, only 500 hand-numbered copies of Dune will ever be made.

An epic adventure of political subterfuge and messianic deliverance, Dune has become the best-selling science-fiction novel of all time, and is considered by many to be the genre’s greatest work. This exceptionally crafted new limited edition is a celebration of the novel’s literary magnitude and will be treasured by collectors for a lifetime. Limited to just 500 hand-numbered and signed copies, the lavishly illustrated edition is accompanied by a print and commentary volume, and is housed in a beautiful cloth-bound presentation box. The extraordinary treatment befits Frank Herbert’s epic story, which is played out on Arrakis, or Dune – a planet of nothingness, its torched wastelands home to a fierce nomadic people who stalk gargantuan sandworms the size of starships. It is a place where water is sacred and where to shed a tear is the most taboo of all sacrifices. And yet the planet is also humanity’s sole source of ‘spice’, the mysterious, addictive substance that underpins the workings of the galaxy-wide Padishah Empire. To control Arrakis is to control all.
