Dosso Dossi : court painter in Renaissance Ferrara by Peter Humfrey( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 570 libraries worldwide
"For this exhibition, almost all the surviving paintings have been brought together; in the catalogue entries each one receives a fresh and comprehensive scholarly discussion. The catalogue also contains essays that describe Dosso's artistic career and the highly charged world of the court at Ferrara and that probe the visual poetry and subtle wit of his work. The illuminating results of an extensive campaign of technical examination, undertaken in connection with the exhibition, are discussed and illustrated in additional essays and in observations that accompany the catalogue entries throughout."--BOOK JACKET
Athenian vase construction : a potter's analysis by Toby Schreiber( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 563 libraries worldwide
"Based on her study of Greek pottery sherds and vases and on her profound hands-on knowledge of pottery construction techniques, including experiments with the potting of Attic shapes, Toby Schreiber describes how ancient Greek potters constructed their vases. Drawn in large part from vases and fragments in the collection of the Getty Museum, the many photographs that accompany the text show how much even seemingly insignificant sherds may reveal about technique when studied by someone knowledgeable about potting. The drawings - all done by the author - demonstrate step by step with admirable clarity how the potter executed his craft." "Written by a master potter, this is a book both for those who know little or nothing about potting techniques and for those who already have an understanding of these matters."--BOOK JACKET

Holy image, hallowed ground : icons from Sinai by Robert S Nelson( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 533 libraries worldwide
"Isolated in the remote Egyptian desert, at the base of Mount Sinai, sits the oldest continuously inhabited monastery in the Christian world. The Holy Monastery of Saint Catherine at Sinai holds the most important collection of Byzantine icons remaining today. This catalogue, published in conjuction with the exhibition Holy Image, Hallowed Ground: Icons from Sinai, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from November 14, 2006, to March 4, 2007, features forty-three of the monastery's extremely rare--and rarely exhibited--icons and six manuscripts still little-known to the world at large. -- The exhibition and catalogue bring to life the central role of the icon in Byzantine religious practices. Themes include the icon's status as holy object, the ways in which the icon sanctified the place of worship, and the monks' quest for the holy. The Greek Orthodox monastery at Mount Sinai not only functioned as a major pilgrimage site for centuries but was also a cultural crossroads at the center of the shifting sands of ecclesiastical and secular politics. The accompanying essays explore how the monastery's contact with the outside world, through pilgrimage, resulted in aesthetic exchanges between the monastery and Coptic, Crusader, and Islamic art; and between the Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic communities in Europe.

Concise and readable explanations of the technical terms most frequently encountered by the museum-goer, accompanied by numerous illustrations of works from the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum and the British Museum, are presented in an easily portable volume"--Publisher's description
The colors of clay : special techniques in Athenian vases by Beth Cohen( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 520 libraries worldwide
"This catalogue documents a major exhibition at the Getty Villa that was the first ever to focus on ancient Athenian terracotta vases made by techniques other than the well-known black- and red-figure styles. The exhibition comprised vases executed in bilingual, coral-red gloss, outline, Kerch-style, white ground, and Six's technique, as well as examples with added clay and gilding, and plastic vases and additions. The Colors of Clay opens with an introductory essay that integrates the diverse themes of the exhibition and sets them within the context of vase making in general; a second essay discusses conservation issues related to several of the techniques. A detailed discussion of the techniques featured in the exhibition precedes each section of the catalogue. More than a hundred vases from museums in the United States and Europe are described in depth."--Publisher's description
Rubens & Brueghel : a working friendship by Anne T Woollett( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 504 libraries worldwide
"Rubens and Brueghel: A Working Friendship is the first international loan exhibition devoted to the artists' collaborative works and an investigation of their working methods. Assembled here are some of the most important works of Brueghel and Rubens's partnership - from the early war themes, to mythological landscapes and allegories, to iconic paintings of the Madonna and Child surrounded by garlands of fruit and flowers - as well as a select group of works executed with other collaborators, including Hans Rottenhammer, Hendrick de Clerck, Hendrick van Balen, and Frans Snyders. Together, these paintings reveal the nature of collaboration as practiced in the Netherlands in this period. What also emerges is the unique character of Brueghel and Rubens's conceptual alliance - a rare partnership of equals, a complex and reciprocal relationship, that gave rise to works of unparalleled delight."--BOOK JACKET

The Getty Villa by Marion True( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 416 libraries worldwide
"The original Getty Museum, housed in a replica of a Roman Villa on a site overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is one of Los Angeles's most treasured landmarks. Closed for almost ten years while renovations were made to the building and the site itself was transformed into a center for the study of antiquities and conservation, the Getty Villa is now set to open late in 2005. This book is a lively history of the Getty that chronicles its growth from a small museum in a ranch house in Malibu to an organization that now comprises not only the renown Museum but also the Research Institute, Conservation Institute, and Foundation." "But most engagingly, this book records the architectural adventure in reconfiguring a beautiful but topographically challenging site into one that could continue to accommodate the splendid Museum building and could also provide for an outdoor theater, laboratories for conservation work and research, offices for staff and visiting scholars, and an education program for adults and children. And while this story may be of only one project in one place, to anyone interested in architecture and in the difficulties of building on a grand scale in the twenty-first century, the story is an enlightening and rewarding one - illustrated with more than 300 reproductions of works of art, photographs of the old and the new Villa, site plans, and architectural elevations."--BOOK JACKET
