Cezanne in Provence: The great Neo-Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne spent most of his life working in the beautiful surroundings of Aix-en-Provence, where he was born in 1839. Today, the Jas de Bouffan, the Bibemus quarry, the Chateau-Noir, the Mont Sainte-Victoire, and the Estaque are all famous as motifs in the master's most triumphant works. The settings are more than mere sceneries, encapsulating Cezanne's belief that the essence of nature is first and foremost revealed by color. Only rarely has a landscape been so perfectly linked with an artist; this superb book uncovers this connection, and how it gave birth to a new pictorial style. Peggy Guggenheim: This is the true story of a twenty-year friendship between the author (a Venetian nobleman) and the famous art collector Peggy Guggenheim. Paolo Barozzi recounts the great lady's life, and the reader learns not only about her invaluable collection, but also her relationships with the greatest artists and writers of the time: Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, and Robert Rauschenberg. Recreating the enchanting atmosphere of the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal, Peggy Guggenheim is an homage to the extraordinary woman who became an incarnation of Venice. Miro's Studio: In 1956, Miro settled into a large white atelier in Palma de Mallorca where he worked unrelentingly until his death in 1985. In this book, the photographs of Jean-Marie del Moral re-create the poetic universe of that grand atelier, crowded with the objets trouv's and household items that fired Miro's imagination. Juan Teodoro Punyet Miro recalls his grandfather, the old man with large blue eyes, who taught him as a child to listen to silence. Picasso, The Objects: "The most everyday object is a vessel, a vehicle of my thoughts." In Picasso's hands, cardboard, paper and rope metamorphose into a guitar, a goat, a woman. His friend, the great photographer Edward Quinn, a privileged witness to Picasso's creative moments, recreates them here in 80 pages of everyday objects given new life in an imaginary world.
