A jeweler's eye : Islamic arts of the book from the Vever Collection by Arthur M. Sackler Gallery (Smithsonian Institution)( Book )
6 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This sumptuous volume, based on an exhibit at the Smithsonian's new Sackler Gallery, perceptively describes the Islamic art holdings of the late Parisian jeweler and pioneering collector of Asian art, Henri Vever. The legendary collection of Persian and Arabic miniatures was thought lost during the Nazi occupation of France. A series of serendipitous events, dramatically told here, led to its recent discovery in New York and its subsequent acquisition by the Smithsonian. The 77 paintings, all of which were originally illustrations for Islamic manuscripts, are reproduced in brilliant color. Despite their great devotion to Asian art, Vever and his fellow collectors, illiterate in Persian and Arabic, were unable to appreciate the cultural context from which this art emerged. The authors (Lowry is a curator at the Sackler Gallery and Nemazee is a curatorial assistant) have restored the texts to their illustrations, thus returning these small masterpieces to the context from which they were torn. For both the connoisseur and the newcomer, poems, stories and scriptural references will further enhance the enjoyment of the splendid book."--PW

The new Museum of Modern Art by Glenn D Lowry( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For the past few years, The Museum of Modern Art has been in the midst of the largest building project in its history. Designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, the new museum will open in midtown Manhattan in November 2004 - 2005 to coincide with MoMA's 75th anniversary. The 630,000-square-foot complex is nearly twice the size of the former facility, with dramatically expanded and redesigned spaces for exhibitions, public programming, educational outreach, and scholarly research. In his initial proposal, Taniguchi explained that his goal was "to create an ideal environment for art and people through the imaginative and disciplined use of light, materials, and space." His stated vision of "a museum that preserves and reinforces MoMA's unique character as the repository of an incomparable collection of modern and contemporary art, as a pioneer of museums of modern art with a unique historical inheritance, and as an urban institution in a midtown Manhattan location" has been resoundingly implemented

Labrouste, 1801-1875, architecte la structure mise en lumière : [exposition, Paris, Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine, 11 octobre 2012-7 janvier 2013 ; New York, Museum of Modern Art, 10 mars-24 juin 2013 by Martin Bressani( Book )

Catalogue de l'exposition présentée du 10 octobre 2012 octobre 2012 au 7 janvier 2013 à la Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine, Paris et du 010 mars 2013 au 24 juin 2013 au MoMA, New-York. La bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève (place du Panthéon) et la salle de lecture de la bibliothèque Richelieu sont les deux chef-d'oeuvres d'Henri Labrouste (1801-1875). Ils révèlent l'essence de cette architecture du fer et de la fonte : simplicité dans la monumentalité, intelligence constructive, renouveau de l'ornementation, recours aux inscriptions et fascination pour les jeux d'ombre et de lumière. 0La mise en valeur du métal, inventive et audacieuse, a retenu l'attention des historiens du XXe siècle qui, à l'instar de Siegfried Giedion, ont vu en Labrouste un pionnier de la modernité

"This anthology of modern and contemporary art, unique in its comprehensiveness and quality, covers over a century of painting and sculpture, design and architecture. photography and books by artists. It is arranged in strictly chronological order so as to offer readers a perspective that will allow them to look at a work and compare different approaches and intuitions in others that were produced that same year and over the course of time. This makes it possible not only to follow the continual process of experimentation that is a specific characteristic of art but also to observe the different attitudes that art has taken to our era, assuming the guise of an account, a commentary, a protest or the proposal of an alternative vision or new values. A "timeline" of modern and contemporary art drawing on the most authoritative and famous collection in the world, that of The Museum of Modern Art, New York."--Jacket
