Art Books
We suggest titles for your very own art library with reviews of the latest releases from the niche to the grand, prestigious coffee table versions, covering all aspects of international art, craft and design.

The Graphic Design Sourcebook

Graphic design surrounds us wherever we go and has done ever since printing was invented. Yet graphics have mostly been ignored as an art form.

Monet: The Restless Vision

Named Art Book of the Year by The Times, thisnew biography of the founder of Impressionism traces how, over the course of a long and exceptionally creative life, Claude Monet revolutionised painting and made some of the most iconic images in western art.

Chasing Beauty: The Life of Isabella Stewart Gardner

Creator of the eponymous art museum in Boston (and scene of the most notorious – and unsolved – art thefts in history), Gardner was an ambitious and innovative American original, a complex and singular woman of grit and self-invention whose own life was remade through art.

Discovering Degas

The first Impressionist exhibition in Paris, in 1874, shocked the art world with a radical new style of painting focused on how light, colour and shape constantly change.

Sofonisba Anguissola

Part of the Illuminating Women Artists series, this biography sheds new light on the Renaissance painter, one of the first women European artists to establish an international reputation during her lifetime.

Caspar David Friedrich: Infinite Landscapes

Marking the 250th anniversary of the painter’s birth, this luxurious exhibition catalogue offers glimpses into the mystery of Friedrich’s largely posthumous popularity as well as the latest research into his training and techniques.
