Laffanour, Francois; CHARLOTTE PERRIAND Laffanour, Francois. Living with CHARLOTTE PERRIAND. 352 pages, illustrated throughout in color. Folio, boards. Paris, Skira, 2019. Living with Charlotte Perriand presents a catalog of the designer's work, object by object. Her chairs, tables and bookshelves in all their different iterations are seen here both up close and "at home," as installed in the living spaces of collectors. Photographs of both historical and contemporary settings show how Perriand's furniture stands the test of time and taste. Essays by François Laffanour and Cynthia Fleury provide a deeper insight into Perriand's work and retrace her life and collaboration with other great artists, designers and architects of her time, such as Le Corbusier and Jean Prouvé. Additionally, quotes from Perriand and the collectors who live with her designs are interpersed throughout the book.

Landau, Ellen G.; Marter, Joan M.; GRACE HARTIGAN; Landau, Ellen G. Abstract Expressionists: The Women. 256 pages with 170Lon,don color and b&w plates. Folio, boards. New York, Merrell, 2023. The dominant movement of the New York and San Francisco art scenes of the mid-20th century, Abstract Expressionism is celebrated as being the first major development in American art to gain international status. Although the movement is synonymous with the work of men like Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning, this new and exciting title highlights the remarkable women who have only recently recieved the recognition they deserve. This book will focus on the women who remained largely in the shadows of their male counterparts during this era - Claire Falkenstein, Perle Fine, Grace Hartigan, Lee Krasner and Joan Mitchell - and will consider the ways in which their contributions were vital to the development of Abstract Expressionism.
Stein, Susan Alyson; VINCENT VAN GOGH Stein, Susan Alyson. VAN GOGH's Cypresses. 272 pages, including 150 color plates. Folio, cloth. New Haven, Yale University Press, 2023. This groundbreaking study of paintings and drawings of cypress trees by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is the first to focus on the artist's unique treatment of this subject.
