In addition to his achievements in abstract painting and sculpture, Frank Stella has also made major contributions to the history of the modern print. An exploration of the artist's innovative use of the medium, Frank Stella: Prints reveals the intimate relationships between Stella's prints and his works in other mediums, demonstrating how Stella blasted a hole in the traditional tools and aesthetics of printmaking with works of compelling complexity and beauty.

Frank Stella: Prints registers in chronological sequence more than 300 editioned prints, reproduced in full color, including works in series and portfolios. Related works in other mediums--paintings, metal reliefs, maquettes and sculpture--are also illustrated for comparison. Complete documentation of each print offers a privileged insight into the creative process behind these works of art. An introductory essay, prefaces to each series and comments on individual prints provide background information, analysis and interpretation. Frank Stella: Prints also features an illustrated chronology, a glossary tailored to Stella's practice, a bibliography and an index.

Soon after arriving in New York in the late 1950s, Frank Stella (born 1936) came to prominence with his striped Black Paintings and shaped canvases. His early painting project reduced the medium to its most fundamental elements and introduced a key concept of Minimalism at an early date: "What you see is what you see." But it was not long before Stella, a restlessly experimental worker, abandoned austerity for brighter colors, irregular shapes, rougher textures and gestural brushstrokes.

Henri Matisse: Matisse and Engraving
The Other Instrument
French    Paperback      ISBN: 8836632459

Matisse and Engraving explores all of the engraving techniques used by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) from 1900 until the end of his life. Though Matisse is known primarily for his mastery of color, engraving was essential to his overall practice. The artist placed equal importance on engraving, drawing, painting and sculpture, with the representation of the human figure essential across all these mediums. This catalogue finally makes accessible this important aspect of her father's work. For the very first time, the matrices--woodcut, lithograph, drypoint, etching, linocut and more--accompany the works, allowing readers to glimpse the process behind the resulting prints.

Invaluable as a guide for ukiyo-e enthusiasts looking for detailed information about their favorite Japanese woodblock print artists and prints, it is also an ideal introduction for newcomers to the world of the woodblock print.

Lest We Forget
The Great War
Hardcover      ISBN: 0998968900

As the United States commemorates the centennial of World War I, one of the nation's premier military history institutions pays tribute to the Americans who served and the allies they fought beside to defeat a resourceful enemy with a lavishly illustrated book published in partnership with the Unites States World War One Centennial Commission. The story of WWI is told through the memorable art it spawned―including posters from nations involved in the conflict―and a taut narrative account of the war's signal events, its major personalities and its tragic consequences; and the timely period photographs that illustrate the awful realities of this revolutionary conflict. Most importantly, this book is a tribute to those who served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and what would become the Air Force. It serves as a lasting reminder that our world ignores the history of World War I (and the ensuing WWII) at its peril―lest we forget. Proceeds from the sale of this book help build the WWI Memorial in Washington D.C.
