12 MATTUSCH, CAROL C. Enduring Bronze: Ancient Art, Modern Views
Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2014. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Ancient bronze statuary provides a sense of immediacy, a window directly back to the classical world. The wistful expression of a young Roman woman, the fixed jaw of a politician, and the tensed muscles of a Greek athlete appear startlingly lifelike, transfixing the viewer with their striking realism. Incredibly durable yet frequently destroyed for their valuable materials, ancient bronzes are comparatively rare discoveries. This book, richly illustrated with works from the J. Paul Getty Museum and other important collections, provides an engaging overview of classical bronzes. Enduring Bronze considers bronze throughout its long history, exploring its enormous appeal from antiquity to the present day. The book discusses the many roles bronze objects played in ancient Greece and Rome and analyzes discoveries made at ancient foundries and by contemporary scientists. It also examines references to bronze in mythology, Pliny's histories, and other classical texts, as well as representations on vases and other artworks. 99 color and 14 black and white illustrations. Carol C. Mattusch is Mathy Professor of Art History at George Mason University. She was guest curator of the exhibition Pompeii and the Roman Villa: Art and Culture around the Bay of Naples (National Gallery of Art, 2008-9) and is the author of Pompeii and the Roman Villa (National Gallery of Art, 2009), The Victorious Youth (Getty Publications, 1997), and The Villa dei Papiri at Herculaneum (Getty Publications, 2005), among many others.

Two Little Girls Publishing: 2013. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Within the pages of this book is the story of sculptor Michael Naranjo, and if a picture is worth a thousand words, the reader will see he has quite a story to tell. In the 164 images portrayed lies the story of a man who did what he was told he couldn't do: succeed in his career as a sculptor after being blinded by a grenade explosion while serving in the U.S. Army in Vietnam in 1968. The book reveals the development of a compelling style and the growth of Naranjo's career as an artist - a lifetime of work in bronze. His complete collection of limited edition bronzes, created from 1970 through 2010, are represented here. Scattered throughout the book are short vignettes wherein Naranjo tells stories in his own words touching on many different aspects of his life and his art and the growth of his career to become one of the leading sculptors in America today. 10 x 13 in., 162 color photos, 2 black-and-white photos.

14 PAYNE, MICHELLE. David Nash At Kew Gardens.
Kew Botanic Gardens, Kew: 2012. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
David Nash is one of the United Kingdom's most prolific sculptors, known for his work with wood, trees, and the natural environment. In a career spanning forty years, he has created more than two thousand sculptures out of wood, many of them monumental in scale. These sculptures are carved using a chainsaw or axe, or sometimes partially burned to produce a charred surface. Through his work, Nash has gained a deep understanding of the properties of trees and has come to see the artistic process as collaborativeŃdrawing from the material and the natural world as well as from the artist himself. David Nash at Kew Gardens will be published to commemorate the major exhibition David Nash - A Natural Gallery, opening in June 2012 and running through April 2013, for which the artist will produce and exhibit his sculptures, installations, drawings, and film throughout Kew's remarkable botanical gardens and green spaces, glasshouses, and galleries. Beginning in April 2012, Nash will be in residence at Kew creating new pieces for the exhibition using trees that have come to the end of their natural life. Beautifully illustrated, this book catalogs the exhibition's outdoor and indoor sculptures and includes a map detailing where they can be found throughout the grounds. An opening essay provides additional background and context. David Nash at Kew Gardens will offer unique insight into this accomplished artist's work and life and encourage readers to engage with the sculptures and their relation to nature as well as the beautiful setting of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. 150 color plates | 6 3/4 x 9 5/8.

17 SCHEIDEGGER, ERNST. Alberto Giacometti: Traces Of A Friendship.
Scheidegger & Spiess: 2012. Revised and Expanded Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Verlag Scheidegger & Spiess, Alberto Giacometti: Traces of a Friendship is being published in a revised and expanded edition, which includes over forty previously unpublished photographs and an intimate new chapter. Alberto Giacometti (1901-66) is inarguably one of the greatest sculptors of the twentieth century. Despite his canonical position in the history of art and the reams of scholarship produced about him, Giacometti remains the elusive master artist, distant and remote on the Olympus of creative endeavor. Ernst Scheidegger, a friend of the sculptor, knew a very different Giacometti.

Getty Conservation Institute, Los Angeles: 2015. First English Language Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In the decades since its initial publication in German in 1978, Polychrome Sculpture has come to be widely regarded as a watershed text on the making and meaning of European medieval and Baroque painted wood sculpture. An early proponent of interdisciplinary research, Johannes Taubert played a pioneering role in combining the rigorous scientific analysis of materials with a fuller understanding of form and function, an approach that has led to the development of technical art history as practiced today. Many of the essays in this volume apply such scientific techniques as microscopic analysis to an art-historical understanding of Romanesque and late Gothic wood sculpture, revealing that, far from serving a merely decorative function, the painted surface of these works was intricately connected to their meaning. The paint layers on the sculptures, for example, which the author spent years documenting through close examination and analysis, were intended to impart a heightened sense of reality to the life-sized sculptures, thereby enhancing the viewer's experience of worship. Taubert believed it was crucial for conservators to understand this context before undertaking any treatments. No other book offers such a focused, subtle, and interdisciplinary examination of the subject as Polychrome Sculpture. This influential work is now available in English for the first time, in a meticulous translation enhanced and updated by new color illustrations, annotations to the original text, and a new introduction. Johannes Taubert (1922-1975), a prominent art historian and conservator, was head of the Bayerisches Landesamt fŸr Denkmalpflege (Bavarian State Department for the Preservation of Monuments). Michele D. Marincola is Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Professor of Conservation at the Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and the conservator at The Cloisters, Metropolitan Museum of Art 216 pages, 8 1/8 x 10 1/4 inches, 240 color illustrations.
