The Oskar Reinhart Collection ‘Am Römerholz’, Winterthur: Complete Catalogue

When Oskar Reinhart (1885–1965) bequeathed a significant part of his remarkable art collection – chiefly of French nineteenth-century painting but also containing a number of outstanding Old Masters – to the Swiss nation, he did so on condition that the works of art would never be loaned. As a consequence the many very important works in the collection have not received the scholarly attention they deserve. Artists represented in the collection that Reinhart made his monument include: Cézanne, Chardin, Corot, Courbet, Daumier, Delacroix, Géricault, Van Gogh, Maillol, Manet, Picasso, Pissarro, Renoir.

Pistrucci's Capriccio

This fully illustrated catalogue brings to light a forgotten masterpiece of Regency sculpture - the beautiful and mysterious Capriccio by the Italian gem-engraver and medallist Benedetto Pistrucci (1783-1855). Thought lost since 1855, the Capriccio is an enigmatic composition of heaped-up fragments brilliantly carved from a single block of white marble. More

Richard Parkes Bonington

The Wallace Collection is fortunate to own probably the finest collection in the world of paintings by Richard Parkes Bonington (1802–1828) – ten oils and twenty-five watercolours. They represent most of his major areas of interest, ranging from richly costumed historical scenes to views in France and northern Italy, particularly Venice. More

Renoir at the Theatre: Looking at La Loge - OUT OF PRINT

This book accompanied an exhibition which united La Loge for the first time with Renoir's other treatments of the subject and with loge paintings by contemporaries, including Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas. Concentrating on the early years of Impressionism during the 1870s, the book explores how these artists used the loge to capture the excitement and changing nature of fashionable Parisian society.

De László in Holland

Philip Alexius de László (1869–1937) was one of the most important portraitists of the early 20th century. Born in Hungary, he was trained in Munich and Paris and was soon receiving commissions from noble and royal families throughout Europe. Having married Lucy Guinness in 1900, in 1907 he moved from Vienna to England, where he had enormous success. More

George Scharf: From Regency Street to the Modern Metropolis

Although the life of George Scharf has not been well documented, he has left a remarkable legacy of drawings, watercolours and lithographs, which, in a most vivid and detailed manner, describe the life of London in the first half of the 19th Century. In many ways, his work can be compared to that of other great chronicler of early Victorian London – Charles Dickens. The characters that populate The Pickwick Papers or Little Dorrit can all be glimpsed in Scharf’s sketches and prints. More

De László: A Brush with Grandeur HARDBACK

This is the revised and updated edition of a book that originally accompanied the first retrospective exhibition of de László since his death in 1937. It illustrates a rich and representative selection of his work, drawn from a range of private collections, and, aided by stunning colour plates, re-introduces this well-known but little studied artist to a wider public.

William Stott of Oldham 1857–1900: "A Comet rushing to the Sun"

William Stott, son of an Oldham mill owner, left for Paris in 1878, at the age of twenty, to train with the classical French painter Jean-Léon Gérôme. Adopting a Realist style of painting, Stott achieved rapid success, being medalled at the Paris Salon in 1882 for his painting The Bathing Place. More

Anders Zorn: A European Artist Seduces America

Accompanying a major exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston (28 February – 13 May 2013), this book re-evaluates the artistic achievement of Anders Zorn (1860–1920), one of the most significant artists of the Belle Époque but one who is still remarkably understudied. Bringing his subjects to life with broad, quick brushstrokes, Zorn experimented with different subjects and styles, absorbing and developing the latest trends, pushing them further. More

Brooks's 1764–2014: The Story of a Whig Club

To celebrate Brooks’s 250th anniversary, this beautiful commemorative volume looks afresh at some historical aspects and the architecture of the Whig club, and presents much original research, including essays on the club’s archives – among the most complete in Clubland – and an illustrated catalogue of the important collection of paintings, drawings, sculpture and prints, including the pictures on loan from the Society of Dilettanti.
