Gardens of the Renaissance

Gardens of the Renaissance

Whether part of a grand villa or an extension of a common kitchen, gardens in the Renaissance were planted and treasured in all reaches of society. Illuminated manuscripts of the period offer a glimpse into how people at the time pictured, used, and enjoyed these idyllic green spaces. This handsomely designed book is published on the occasion of an exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum on view until August 11, 2013.

American Painters on Technique: 1860-1945
Lance Mayer and Gay Myers
American Painters on Technique: 1860-1945

This book, like the authors' previous volume on American painting materials and techniques from the colonial period to 1860, is the first overview of an important but largely unknown aspect of American art from 1860 to 1945. The study is based primarily on firsthand descriptions of the materials and techniques that artists used to make paintings. It is written to be accessible and interesting to curators, art historians, and painters, as well as conservators.
