8 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.

10 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 collaborative—drawing 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.

11 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.

14 WOOD, JON; HULKS, DAVID & POTTS, ALEX (EDITORS). Modern Sculpture Reader.
Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2012. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In many anthologies of art, sculpture is given short shrift in relation to other media, if it is treated at all. Modern Sculpture Reader aims to rectify this situation by presenting a collection of important texts that have defined sculpture's radically changing status and role since the end of the nineteenth century, a time marked by a general reappraisal of the forms and functions of art. From the rigorously theoretical to the experimental and poetic, Modern Sculpture Reader offers a lively discourse on the medium by a range of artists, writers, critics, and poets—Marcel Duchamp, Louise Bourgeois, Claes Oldenberg, Andr Breton, Ezra Pound, and Clement Greenberg—in a variety of genres: poems, lectures, transcribed interviews, newspaper and magazine articles, and artists' statements. These diverse text selections offer valuable insight into the development of the critical language of sculpture and its connections to other media in an era of increasingly conceptual artistic practice. Many of the essays highlight key ongoing concerns such as sculpture's physical properties and conditions of display, both of which have important implications for the viewer's tactile and emotional interaction with sculptural works. Jon Wood is research curator at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, and coauthor of Articulate Objects: Sculpture, Voice and Performance (Peter Lang, 2009). David Hulks is a teacher and researcher in world art studies with an interest in psychoanalytical theory and the conceptual aspects of three-dimensional art since the post-war era. Alex Potts is Max Loehr Collegiate Professor in the Department of History of Art at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and the author of The Sculptural Imagination: Figurative, Modernist, Minimalist (Yale University Press, 2001).
