"From 1874 to 1882, John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) produced more than 200 paintings and water-colours aside from portraiture that chart his development as an artist. The breadth of his achievement includes figures in landscape settings, architectural studies, seascapes, subject paintings, and studies after old masters. From his powerful studies of models in Paris in the mid-1870s to his compelling paintings set in Venice in the early 1880s, the works published in this volume of the catalogue raisonne show the variety of his aesthetic responses." "Working in the studio and en plein air, Sargent travelled widely during the eight years covered in this volume, painting in Paris, Brittany, Capri, Spain, North Africa and Venice." "This is the first time that Sargent's early work has been mapped so comprehensively. With very few exceptions, this book illustrates all the pictures under discussion in colour. Each painting, including several which have never been published before, is documented in depth with full provenance, exhibition history and bibliography. Original research of primary documents and on-site investigations uncovered much new information, presented in critical discussions of subject matter, dating, style, and significance in the artist's career. The volume reproduces a wealth of Sargent's preliminary and related drawings and of comparative works by other artists." --Book Jacket.

Though the eminent nineteenth-century British critic and watercolorist John Ruskin never set foot in the United States, his writings were widely read here. American artists eagerly took up his call for the meticulous depiction of nature and the preservation through copying of some of the finest works of civilization before time or misguided restoration overtook them. His influence was disseminated by the legendary Charles Eliot Norton, the nation's first professor of art history, who taught at Harvard from 1874 to 1898, and by Norton's protege Charles Herbert Moore. The Last Ruskinians is the catalogue of an exhibition that traces Ruskin's impact on these teachers, their students, and many other artists and collectors. The works represented here include floral studies, landscapes, architectural details, views of Venice, and copies after ancient, medieval, and Renaissance art. Most are in watercolor, Ruskin's favorite medium. Included are ten works by Ruskin himself, all drawn from the Harvard collections, and twice as many by his friend Moore, a Harvard drawing instructor and the Fogg Art Museum's first director.

Architecture and Armed Conflict is the first multi-authored scholarly book to address this theme from a comparative, interdisciplinary perspective. By bringing together specialists from a range of relevant fields, and with knowledge of case studies across time and space, it provides the first synthetic body of research on the complex, multifaceted subject of architectural destruction in the context of conflict. The book addresses several specific research questions: How has the destruction of buildings and landscapes figured in recent historical conflicts, and how have people and states responded to it? How has the destruction of architecture been represented in different historical periods, and to what ends? What are the relationships between the destruction of architecture and the destruction of art, particularly iconoclasm? If architectural destruction is a salient feature of many armed conflicts, how does it feature in post-conflict environments? What are the relationships between architectural destruction and processes of restoration, recreation or replacement? Considering multiple conflicts, multiple time periods, and multiple locations allows this international cohort of authors to provide an essential primer for this crucial topic.
