Curtis (a writer, he's the former editor of Texas Monthly ) has written a savvy and engaging tale of the famous statue's discovery; the haggling that procured it for the Louvre; the scholarly discussion it fostered between such intellectual greats of the time as Winckelmann, Heinrich Heine and Adolf Furtwängler; evidence of the early 19th-century taste seen in its treatment by Louvre director August Forbin; and the history of the statue's restorations and de-restorations.

97 Contemporary and Traditional Artists
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 1440303142
In a 9x12.5") format, the editors of Southwest Art present 25 artists of the Rocky Mountain states: Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming. For each we see a two-page spread comprising a full-page color image, a brief biography, and the artists' answers to five questions regarding the inspiration for the piece, prep work and techniques, greatest challenge in creating the piece, the final results--those anticipated and surprises, and the personal meaning of the piece for the artist. The sculptures range from conventional to highly innovative; many are bronze, but other materials (wire, stone, stainless steel) are lightly represented.

Cellini: Artist, Genius Fugitive
Cellini
Artist, Genius Fugitive
Hardcover      ISBN: 075092957x
The life of Cellini is a romping good story which at present exists only in the form of a memoir, read by students and specialists. Derek Parker retells Cellini's life, setting it in the context of the turbulent world of Renaissance Europe. Cellini, famous as sculptor and goldsmith, and patronized by both Francis I of France and the Medici courts of Tuscany, was one of the most picturesque figures of the Renaissance. His adventures, hot temper and tendency to fight, his escapes from prison and amorous escapades among the Florentine and Roman nobility, and his interest in magic, made him a figure of renown in his own time, and beyond.
