Robert Parkin's book gives a reading of each of these texts before going on to show their subsequent influence on anthropologists in particular. Hertz's activities as reviewer and phamphleteer are also covered. The introductory biographical chapter drawing on Hertz's surviving papers in the College de France, shows his own ambivalence towards his academic career and it also attempts to clarify the circumstances leading up to his apparently gratuitous death in the First World War. Two further chapters attempt to situate his work in the broader context of Durkheimian sociology."

"Throughout his long career, Henri Matisse (1869-1954) continually expanded the boundaries of his art. By repeating images in pairs, trios, and series, he conducted an ongoing dialogue with his earlier works in order to, as he put it, "push further and deeper into true painting." In this fresh approach to a much-studied artist, prominent scholars from the United States and Europe examine more than sixty works in concise chapters that focus on this aspect of Matisse's working process. From early pairs such as Young Sailor I and II (1906) and Le Lexe I and II (1907-8) through a series of late studio scenes from Vence (1946-48), Matisse is shown revisiting a given theme with the aim of devising innovative, often radical, solutions to such problems as how to portray light, handle paint, select colors, and manipulate perspective. New technical studies of the early paired works and photographs documenting the evolution of his later paintings help to elucidate Matisse's complex evolution. In numerous excerpts from letters and interviews, he is revealed as an artist who regularly questioned himself and his methods, a man of powerful intellect who regarded each new painting as an adventure. A significant addition to art historical literature, Matisse: In Search of True Painting is a revelatory study of a seminal figure in 20th-century modernism."--Page 4 of cover.

Summary: Although Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) sold relatively few of his landscape paintings he regarded them as his most important work. When not occupied with his lucrative portrait business the artist devoted much of his time to the creation of landscapes 'of his own Brain' (as he termed them). The English countryside, its forms, textures and colours, and the people and animals that lived and worked in it, inspired a lifetime's work in many media, from oils to etching. This new book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Holburne Museum (24/09/2011-04/01/2012), brings together some of Gainsborough's finest landscape oils and works on paper and examines them not through a chronological survey of his career but by looking at 'themes and variations' within his landscape oeuvre.

This book celebrates the Gechts' gift of over thirty works to The Art Institute of Chicago, joining what has long been one of the most distinguished public collections of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century graphic arts in America. Showcasing the couple's bequest, Graphic Modernism is augmented by one hundred other examples from the family's important holdings. The Art Institute's staff worked closely with the Gechts in making selections for the museum that will fill lacunae and add strength to strength. In an informative introduction, Art Institute curator Suzanne Folds McCullagh relates the collection to the context in which it was formed. Each of the over 130 works included here is reproduced in full color, and is accompanied by an informative and accessible entry prepared by Art Institute staff and the Gechts' curator, Mark Krisco.
