Image and text taken from here
"This group of 40 prints from the exceptional Daniel Cowin Collection captures the tumultuous aesthetic and political climate of the years surrounding World Wars I and II. An essay by Jonathan Black addresses the impact of World War I on two notable British printmakers, Edward Wadsworth and C. R. W. Nevinson."

The Self-Aware Image
750/STOI

Image and text taken from here
"The notion of the painting as an art object is a relatively recent invention. The Self-Aware Image offers an impressive and complex account of the origins and development of this invention from the late Renaissance through the end of the baroque age. In comparison to the old image characterized by its preeminently liturgical function and its display in a predetermined space, the painting as the new image is increasingly autonomous and movable."

Maggi Hambling: Touch
741.092/HAMB
9781848222076: Maggi Hambling: Touch: Works on Paper
Image and text taken from here
"One of Britain's foremost figurative artists, Maggi Hambling is celebrated for her portrait paintings and controversial sculptures. Less familiar, however, are her lively drawings and sensuous Monotype prints."

Patrick Pound: The Great Exhibition
709.2/POUN
Patrick Pound: The Great Exhibition

Image and text taken from here
"Patrick Pound: The Great Exhibition is the first comprehensive exhibition of the New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based artist. An avid collector, Patrick Pound is equally interested in systems and the ordering of objects: an attempt, perhaps, to make things coherent. As Pound says, ‘to collect is to gather your thoughts through things’."

Painting After Postmodernism
759.06/ROSE
9789401437646: Painting After Postmodernism: Belgium - USA
Image and text taken from here
"Painting after Postmodernism: Belgium - USA investigates why so many believed Marcel Duchamp when he made his infamous statement of 1918: that painting was dead. After all, as this book goes on to show, Duchamp was wrong. In the decades before and after World War II, Picasso, Matisse, Miro and the New York School continued to make monumental mural scale paintings on the level of the greatest art of the past."

Practice as Research: Approaches to Creative Arts Enquiry
707/BARR

Image and text taken from here
"Practice-led research is a burgeoning area across the creative arts, with studio-based doctorates frequently favored over traditional research. Yet until now there has been little published guidance for students embarking on such research."
