Felice Beato:
A Photographer on the Eastern Road
Anne Lacoste
With an essay by Fred Ritchin
Felice Beato

This abundantly illustrated book accompanies an exhibition—the first devoted to Beato's entire oeuvre—on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum until April 3, 2011. The text includes an engaging narrative of his life and entrepreneurial career and a thought-provoking essay on Beato and the photography of war. There is a generous selection of his photographs, including panoramas and hand-colored Japanese studies, along with captivating period ephemera, lithographs based on his work, and humorous caricatures of the artist.

Photography as Fiction
Erin C. Garcia

Photography as Fiction includes seventy-six color plates illustrating works from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection that embrace theatricality and are unconcerned with documenting the world as it exists. The book showcases works by both widely known and less prominent artists, including Julia Margaret Cameron, Lewis Carroll, Jo Ann Callis, Eileen Cowin, Roger Fenton, Man Ray, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Yasumasa Morimura, Paul Outerbridge, Henry Peach Robinson, Lucas Samaras, Alfred Stieglitz, Andy Warhol, and Carrie Mae Weems.

The Tree in Photographs
Françoise Reynaud
The Tree in Photographs

This selection of eighty-one images carefully culled from the J. Paul Getty Museum's permanent collection of photographs and reproduced in color presents the tree in various contexts: the single tree; trees in the urban landscape; uses of trees; tree reflections and shadows; and details, abstractions, and conceptual views of trees as conceived by contemporary artists. This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition In Focus: The Tree, to be held at the J. Paul Getty Museum from February 15 to June 3, 2011.

Sacred Possessions:
Collecting Italian Religious Art, 1500-1900
Edited by Gail Feigenbaum and Sybille Ebert-Schifferer

When works of art created for religious purposes outlive their original function, they often take on new meanings as they move from sacred spaces to secular collections. Religious art embodies a complicated amalgam of the aesthetic and the numinous, and the fourteen essays in this volume explore how the admixture changes—often radically—with changes of function, setting, audience, and the passage of time.
