The first definitive biography of the master painter in more than a century, <em>Titian: His Life</em> is being hailed as a "landmark achievement" for critically acclaimed author Sheila Hale (<em>Publishers Weekly</em>). Brilliant in its interpretation of the 16th-century master's paintings, this monumental biography of Titian draws on contemporary accounts and recent art historical research and scholarship, some of it previously unpublished, providing an unparalleled portrait of the artist, as well as a fascinating rendering of Venice as a center of culture, commerce, and power. Sheila Hale's <em>Titian</em> is destined to be this century's authoritative text on the life of greatest painter of the Italian High Renaissance.

<b><b><i>NEW YORK TIMES聽</i>BESTSELLER 鈥⒙犫€淭he definitive biography for decades to come.鈥?lt;b>鈥擫eo Jansen, curator, the Van Gogh Museum, and co-editor of聽</b><i><b>Vincent van Gogh: The Complete Letters</b></i></b><br /></b><br />Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, who galvanized readers with their Pulitzer Prize鈥搘inning biography of Jackson Pollock, have written another tour de force鈥攁n exquisitely detailed, compellingly readable portrait of Vincent van Gogh. Working with the full cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Naifeh and Smith have accessed a wealth of previously untapped materials to bring a crucial understanding to the larger-than-life mythology of this great artist: his early struggles to find his place in the world; his intense relationship with his brother Theo; and his move to Provence, where he painted some of the best-loved works in Western art. The authors also shed new light on many unexplored aspects of Van Gogh鈥檚 inner world: his erratic and tumultuous romantic life; his bouts of depression and mental illness; and the cloudy circumstances surrounding his death at the age of thirty-seven.<br /> 聽<br /> Though countless books have been written about Van Gogh, no serious, ambitious examination of his life has been attempted in more than seventy years. Naifeh and Smith have re-created Van Gogh鈥檚 life with an astounding vividness and psychological acuity that bring a completely new and sympathetic understanding to this unique artistic genius.<br /><b><br />NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY聽<i>The New York Times Book Review聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>The Washington Post聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>The Wall Street Journal聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>San Francisco Chronicle聽</i>鈥?NPR 鈥⒙?lt;i>The Economist聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>Newsday聽</i>鈥?BookReporter聽</b><br /><br />鈥淚n their magisterial new biography,聽<i>Van Gogh: The Life,聽</i>Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith provide a guided tour through the personal world and work of that Dutch painter, shining a bright light on the evolution of his art. . . .

Pushcart Prize Nominee, two-time National Poetry Slam Individual Champion, and winner of the World Cup Poetry Slam, Anis Mojgani captivates with The Pocketknife Bible, which builds the bridge between a grown-up book for children and a children's picture book for adults, seeking to answer these questions through the author's poems and pictures:<br />What if your future life came to you as a child in dreams? What if you wrote down those dreams in words and pictures, in the language we spoke as children but forgot once grown? What if as an adult you unearthed this book of dreams and prophecy from your past and translated them out of that long lost tongue into poems that those now grown could understand?

<b>Fran莽oise Gilot's candid memoir remains the most revealing portrait of Picasso written, and gives fascinating insight into the intense and creative life shared by two modern artists.</b><br /><br />Fran莽oise Gilot was in her early twenties when she met the sixty-one-year-old Pablo Picasso in 1943. Brought up in a well-to-do upper-middle-class family, who had sent her to Cambridge and the Sorbonne and hoped that she would go into law, the young woman defied their wishes and set her sights on being an artist. Her introduction to Picasso led to a friendship, a love affair, and a relationship of ten years, during which Gilot gave birth to Picasso鈥檚 two children, Paloma and Claude. Gilot was one of Picasso鈥檚 muses; she was also very much her own woman, determined to make herself into the remarkable painter she did indeed become.<br /><br /><i>Life with Picasso</i>, written with Carlton Lake and published in 1961, is about Picasso the artist and Picasso the man. We hear him talking about painting and sculpture, his life, his career, as well as other artists, both contemporaries and old masters. We glimpse Picasso in his many and volatile moods, dismissing his work, exultant over his work, entertaining his various superstitions, being an anxious father. But聽Life with Picasso聽is not only a portrait of a great artist at the height of his fame; it is also a picture of a talented young woman of exacting intelligence at the outset of her own notable career.

<b>Catherine O鈥橲ullivan Shorr sheds light on the infamous Silver Factory鈥檚 final years in the conclusion of this exhilarating, uncensored oral history</b><br /><br /> The late 1960s brought seismic shifts to Andy Warhol and life at the Silver Factory. The hub of his avant-garde scene shifted from the Factory on Manhattan鈥檚 47th Street to the downtown bar Max鈥檚 Kansas City; new stars like drag queens Jackie Curtis, Holly Woodlawn, and Candy Darling began to replace Warhol鈥檚 old favorites; and a shocking act of violence left him paranoid and mistrusting of even his closest friends. Told by the actors, artists, writers, and hangers-on who populated and defined the Factory,聽<i>Your Fifteen Minutes Are Up聽</i>is an unprecedented expos茅 of these tumultuous times.<br /> 聽<br /> By 1967, it seemed to many that the Factory had outlived its 15 minutes of fame. Superstars like Edie Sedgwick, who had reached the height of fame only the year before, were now running out of money and falling victim to drug addiction. Some Factory dwellers had falling-outs with Warhol, while others, like Lou Reed and John Cale of the Velvet Underground, got caught up in disputes of their own. When radical feminist Valerie Solanas shot and nearly killed Warhol, the artist had already relocated to the White Factory in Union Square, leading to further rifts within the group. Intimate interviews with scene insiders and candid photos from Billy Name portray the true stories behind the legends and mystique of the Silver Factory.<br /><br /><br />

Master Carver Grinling Gibbons (1648鈥?721) is famous for his breathtakingly delicate, intricate and realistic carvings, both in wood and stone. Tantalising cascades of fruit and flowers, puffy-cheeked cherubs, crowds of figures and flourishes of architecture are all trademark features of his energetic, animated carvings that grace stately homes, palaces, churches and colleges across the country. His work can be found in some of Britain's most beloved buildings, including St Paul's Cathedral and Hampton Court Palace. From his early work in the Low Countries to his 'discovery' by the diarist John Evelyn in London, and his appointment as the king's Master Carver, this book celebrates Grinling Gibbons' unequalled talent, his visionary genius, and his ability to transform humble pieces of wood into some of the most exquisite artworks of his day.
