François Boucher: Seductive Visions

The first monograph to appear on Boucher in English for nearly twenty years, this book is an invaluable contribution to the study of eighteenth-century art. Boucher has cried out for reassessment, and here at last, following the tercentenary year of his birth, his work is seen at its very best in numerous beautiful reproductions. More

Frank Auerbach: The London Building Sites 1952–62

This catalogue accompanied the first exhibition to bring together the seminal group of paintings of London building sites by Frank Auerbach (born 1931). Produced between 1952 and 1962, the paintings are among the most profound responses made by any artist to the post-war urban landscape. These works chart the early development of Auerbach’s remarkable approach to painting, for which he is celebrated as one of Britain’s greatest living artists. More

French Bronzes in the Wallace Collection

OUT OF STOCK: The group of about one hundred French bronzes in the Wallace Collection is justly considered one of the finest such collections in the world. Fifty-one of the best are featured in this book, the first in-depth study of the subject in English. More

Gabriel Münter: The Search for Expressionism - OUT OF PRINT

This is the first book to consider Lewis’s drawing as a distinct contribution to his art, despite the importance he attributed to draughtsmanship. Lewis wrote that the line in drawing was nothing less than “the bone beneath the pulp”. “It is more difficult upon a piece of white paper ... to deceive the expert spectator than it is with a lot of oil paint upon a canvas.” This book traces his drawing from youthful figure studies and portraits to the surreal abstractions and dreamscapes of his later years.

Gainsborough at Gainsborough's House

Thomas Gainsborough (1727–1788), for some the greatest English artists, was born in the small town of Sudbury on the river Stour in Suffolk in East Anglia. In his house in Sudbury, mainly during the time under the curatorship of Hugh Belsey, the Gainsborough's House Society has built an outstanding collection of paintings, drawings, prints, books and memorabilia relating to the artist and his time. More

Gainsborough's Cottage Doors: An Insight into the Artist’s Last Decade

Inspired by the recent identification of a third autograph version of Gainsborough's masterpiece The Cottage Door, this book examines the significance of the multiple versions of designs that the artist produced during the 1780s. It demonstrates that without the pressure of exhibiting his work annually at the Academy and without a string of sitters waiting for their finished portraits, Gainsborough’s work became more personal, more thoughtful. This study of the last phase of the artist’s work is a totally fresh interpretation of not only The Cottage Door but other key works such as Mrs Sheridan and Diana and Acteon. More

Geometry in Gold: An Illuminated Mamlk Qu'ran Section

This book is devoted to a monumental and superbly illuminated very large early fourteenth-century Mamluk Qur’an in muhaqqaq script. It constitutes the final part (Juz’ 30) of a superb two-volume Qur’an of which the first volume is preserved in the National Museum in Damascus while the second volume, from which the present section originates, is widely dispersed. 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

Georgiana Houghton: Spirit Drawings

An astonishing series of largely abstract Victorian watercolours produced by the long-forgotten spiritualist artist Georgiana Houghton (1814–1884). This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition of these remarkable works in the UK for nearly 150 years. More

In late 2007 the National Gallery of Art, Washington, acquired one of the finest private European holdings of Old Master drawings – the Wolfgang Ratjen Collection – including 120 German drawings. This unique survey of drawings includes work by many of the most important artists from the German-speaking areas of Europe, including Switzerland and Austria. More
