Despite the fact that Max Ernst has long been regarded by his peers as a major trailblazer in research into the subconscious, a pioneer of oneiric art, and a prince of the kingdom of the bizarre, neither in France nor in the United States has he received the general public acclaim he deserves. Only in the past decade has this unfortunate lack of understanding finally evaporated, and his work, which has always been appreciated by a few friends and faithful collectors, is now enjoying a universal vogue, as is evidenced by numerous international exhibitions.

Michelangelo Merisi (or Amerighi) da Caravaggio (29 September 1571? 18 July? 1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta, and Sicily between 1592 (1595?) and 1610. His paintings, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, had a formative influence on Baro

Maurice Wertheim, a graduate of Harvard College (Class of 1906), approached the collecting of art with disciplined enthusiasm. Although he did not purchase a major painting until 1956, when he had already turned fifty, within two or three years he had made himself a major contender in the field. In the next decade and a half he succeeded in assembling one of the most remarkable and focused collections of modern European art in this country. At his death in 1950, Maurice Wertheim bequeathed his collection to Harvard for "the benefit and use of the Fogg Art Museum." Since 1974 the collection has been permanently installed in the museum, where it has given pleasure and instruction to numerous students and scholars as well as to many visitors. In recognition of the importance of the extraordinary paintings and sculptures in the collection, the galleries where they are installed were completely redesigned in 1986 to provide a more spacious and congenial setting in which to be seen.

The Painted Photograph 1839-1914 - Origins, Techniques, Aspirations: Heinz K. Henisch, Bridget Ann Henisch

Very little information about the practice of painting (as opposed to tinting; there is a difference) photography has been available. This book covers incredible ground, pulling together material from advertisements, photography texts, archives and collections in order to present an overview of the climate, practice, and production of painted photography. Most other material extant focuses on individual artists who happened to overpaint their photographs, or of particular artworks which are photographs that have been painted on. Henisch shows the existence of a trend in early photography which seems to have been relegated to the sidelines as an analomy or as an isolated practice. This is an incredible work, well - written, and evocative of Henisch's broad scope of scholarship.

Donato di Niccolo di Betto Bardi (circa 1386 December 13, 1466), better known as Donatello, was an early Renaissance Italian sculptor from Florence. He is, in part, known for his work in bas-relief, a form of shallow relief sculpture that, in Donatellos case, incorporated significant 15th-century developments in perspectival illusionism.

The idea for this book took shape at some time in 1968. While teaching at two London art colleges, the author was disturbed by the fact that new work in any particular field of the visual arts was documented and considered in isolation. He felt that it was desirable to correlate many apparently disparate activities. He was aware that the student of graphic design, for instance, might have little knowledge of 'conceptual' or 'minimal' art, and that, on the other hand, the fine-art student could be equally ignorant of developments in 'autonomous typography' or 'ideative design'. By the same token, innovation in audio-visual techniques might elude both groups of students.
