Born in Vienna in 1938, Alex Wengraf moved to England before he was a year old. After studying dental surgery in Bryanston, he earned a Fellowship at the Royal College of Surgeons in the UK. He studied on at the Postgraduate Medical School of London until his parents died in a car accident in 1965. He then gave it all up to follow his family profession and became one of London's most famous art dealers. Memories of a London Art Dealer is the distillation of a lifetime's worth of experience and expertise in the fine art world. Neither an autobiography nor a traditional memoir, the book consists of reflections, anecdotes, telling conversations, encounters, touches of humor, and a choice selection of the triumphs and disasters, heroes and villains encountered by an accidental art dealer.

This book bridges theoretical gaps that exist between the meta-concepts of memory, place and identity by positioning its lens on the emplaced practices of commemoration and the remembrance of war and conflict. This book examines how diverse publics relate to their wartime histories through engagements with everyday collective memories, in differing places. Specifically addressing questions of place-making, displacement and identity, contributions shed new light on the processes of commemoration of war in everyday urban façades and within generations of families and national communities. Contributions seek to clarify how we connect with memories and places of war and conflict. The spatial and narrative manifestations of attempts to contextualise wartime memories of loss, trauma, conflict, victory and suffering are refracted through the roles played by emotion and identity construction in the shaping of post-war remembrances. This book offers a multidisciplinary perspective, with insights from history, memory studies, social psychology, cultural and urban geography, to contextualise memories of war and their ‘use’ by national governments, perpetrators, victims and in family histories.

Mining various archives and newspaper repositories, Elizabeth Robins Pennell, Nineteenth-Century Pioneer of Modern Art Criticism provides the first full-length study of a remarkable woman and heretofore neglected art critic. Pennell, a prolific 'New Art Critic', helped formulate and develop formalist methodology in Britain at the end of the nineteenth century, which she applied to her mostly anonymous or pseudonymous reviews published in numerous American and British newspapers and periodicals between 1883 and 1923. A bibliography of her art criticism is included as an appendix. In addition to advocating an advanced way in which to view art, Pennell used her platform to promote the work of ?new? artists, including ?ouard Manet and Edgar Degas, which had only recently been introduced to British audiences. In particular, Pennell championed the work of James McNeill Whistler for whom she, along with her husband, the artist Joseph Pennell, wrote a biography. Examination of her contributions to the late Victorian art world also highlights the pivotal role of criticism in the production and consumption of art in general, a point which is often ignored.

Hwo did the rise of metropolitan art institutions influence modernism and the modernisation of art in England? This volume explores the artist as creator, notions of class and taste, and the power of institutions to affect creativity and artistic expression. Topics discussed include the radicalism of engravers and how their claim to be artists is an important and negkected aspect of the nineteenth-century art world; and how the aesthetic dispute over the Chantrey Bequest epitomized conflicts of taste, cultural independence, and interdependence between opposed art institutions and the Treasury.

How is it that some established artists but not others come to be considered worth remembering? For answers, Etched in Memory looks at how history interacts with personal biography. The authors dig deeply into the archives for material on the careers and posthumous fates of nearly 300 British and American printmakers, half of them women, active during the Etching Revival of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The authors examine the effects of changing taste on artistic productivity, on building a reputation, and on the selective survival of artists within the collective memory. They document the influence on careers of family milieu, of acces to art education, of sponsorship and networks, of having (or lacking) money, and of being in the right place at the right time. Being remembered requires, at minimum, that the artist's work be preserved and deposited in the cultural archives. It is here that demographics and other circumstances put women at a cumulative disadvantage.
