Hogarth: The Modern Moral Subject, 1697-1732
Hogarth
The Modern Moral Subject, 1697-1732
Paperback      ISBN: 0813516951
In 1971, Ronald Paulson published his monumental two-volume critical biography of William Hogarth, thus establishing his own reputation as a major critic on art and literature of the eighteenth century and gaining recognition for Hogarth as a central figure in British art and culture. In the twenty years since the book's original publication, Paulson's viewpoint on his subject has changed and his knowledge of the period has grown and been refined. In the same two decades, there has been a general growth of knowledge and interest in the eighteenth century in general and in major figures such as Defoe, Fielding, Poe, and Swift. This is the first of three volumes of a fully revised work on Hogarth, which will make the books available at affordable prices to a new and wider audience of readers.

Sara Midda's South of France: A Sketch Book
Sara Midda's South of France
A Sketch Book
Hardcover      ISBN: 0894807633
From Sara Midda, the artist whose first book, In and Out of the Garden, evoked all the pleasures of the English garden and received international acclaim, comes a wondrous sketchbook from a year spent in the South of France--an artist's personal journal carried everywhere and crammed with drawings and notions and thoughts surprising and whimsical. Sara Midda captures the land, the people, the shimmering air--the whole feeling of Provence and the Cote d' Azur and the spell they cast over even those who haven't been. Describing her own work, Sara Midda says: "It is an evocation, an interpretation of the everyday. It is making discoveries about ordinary things. It is not merely landscapes and buildings, but the artifacts that are the bricks and mortar of a culture." The entire volume is printed on uncoated stock to convey the feeling and texture of an artist's sketchbook.
