Looking East
Rubens's Encounter with Asia
Edited by Stephanie Schrader
With contributions by Burglind Jungmann, Kim Young-Jae, and Christine Göttler
Looking East

Published to accompany an exhibition of Rubens's Man in Korean Costume at the J. Paul Getty Museum, and available in both print and as an enhanced e-book through Apple, Looking East explores the various facets of Rubens's compelling drawing of a man wearing a Korean costume. This large drawing was copied in Rubens's studio during his own time and circulated as a reproductive print in the eighteenth century. Despite the drawings renown, however, the reasons why it was made and whether it actually depicts a specific Asian person remain a mystery. The intriguing story that develops involves a shipwreck, an unusual hat, the earliest trade between Europe and Asia, the trafficking of Asian slaves, and the role of Jesuit missionaries in Asia.

Futures & Ruins
Eighteenth-Century Paris and the Art of Hubert Robert
Nina L. Dubin

In this timely and provocative study, Hubert Robert's paintings of urban ruins are interpreted as manifestations of a new consciousness of time, one shaped by the uncertainties of an economy characterized by the dread-inducing expansion of credit, frenzied speculation on the stock exchange, and bold ventures in real estate. As the favored artist of an enterprising Parisian elite, Robert is a prophetic case study of the intersections between aesthetics and modernity's dawning business culture.
