  • The Women Who Inspired London Art

    This is the story of women caught up in the tumultuous art scene of the early twentieth century, some famous and others lost to time.

    By 1910 the patina of the belle époque was wearing thin in London. Artists were on the hunt for modern women who could hold them in thrall. A chance encounter on the street could turn an artless child into an artist’s model, and a model into a muse. Most were accidental beauties, plucked from obscurity to pose in the great art schools and studios. Many returned home to... Learn More

  • Whistler and Nature

    The Anglo-American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834 – 1903) is a household name – a man who inspired and astonished the Victorian world. Less well known, though, is the influence of nature on Whistler’s work. This innovative and compelling study reconsiders Whistler’s work from the context of his military service and his relationship with ‘nature at the margins,' showing how Whistler’s observation of nature and its moods underpinned his haunting visions of nineteenth-century life.

    This innovative and compelling study reconsi... Learn More
  • Maman

    Madame Vuillard is a particular focus of the work produced during the initial decade of Édouard Vuillard’s (1868 - 1940) career, the 1890s, when Vuillard was a member of the Nabis and forging an artistic identity as part of the Parisian avant-garde. During this period Vuillard and his widowed mother shared a series of modest rented apartments in central Paris in which the artist sustained a works-on-paper and (from 1897) amateur photographic practice out of his ‘studio-bedroom,' whilst in the dining room Madame Vuillard ran the corsetry business...

  • Mesrop of Xizan

    Illuminator, painter, scribe, clerk, teacher, doctor of theology, restorer and binder, Mesrop was one of the greatest Armenian artists of his and following generations.

It includes an extraordinary series of illuminatio... Learn More
  • Break Boundary

    “Break Boundary” refers to the transformative point at which any system suddenly and irrevocably changes from its original state into something new. Coined by Kenneth E. Boulding in 1963, the term serves as the underlying metaphor for the photographs of Jenee Mateer. In her original works of art, the horizon that divides land, water, and sky shifts and multiplies producing bands of varied colors and luminosity that transform the natural landscape into imaginative “waterscapes” and challenge our understanding of photography. Reminiscent of the abstrac... Learn More
  • Drawing in Tintoretto’s Venice

    Jacopo Tintoretto (1518–1594) was among the most distinctive artists of the Italian Renaissance. Yet, although his bold paintings are immediately recognizable, his drawings remain unfamiliar even to many scholars. Drawing in Tintoretto’s Venice offers a complete overview of Tintoretto as a draftsman. It begins with a look at drawings by Tintoretto’s precedents and contemporaries, a discussion intended to illuminate Tintoretto’s sources as well as his originality, and also to explore the historiographical and critical questions that have framed all...
