Author: Martin Hammer
Combining the traditional genres of the nude and portraiture, the naked portrait represents a fascinating phenomenon in art and photography of the past one hundred years. Martin Hammer makes sense of such a rich vein of visual material by examining works in many different media by diverse artists. This study seeks to explain naked portraiture as a symptom of the wider contemporary cultural impulse to reveal what is hidden beneath the surface facade, and addresses how and why the genre of portraiture has been radically extended and reinvented within the art of the last hundred years.

One of the foremost artists working today, Lucian Freud had redefined portraiture and the nude through his frank scrutiny of the human form. Although he is best known as a painter, etching is integral to Freud's practice. This volume accompanies a major Museum of Modern Art exhibition presenting the full scope of Freud's etchings, along with a critical selection of related paintings and drawings. Organized by Starr Figura, Lucian Freud: The Painter's Etchings includes seventy etchings - from the artist's rare early experiments of the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions he has created since rediscovering the medium in the early 1980s - juxtaposed with some twenty-two paintings and seven drawings. Figura's essay in this catalogue examines the dramatic dialogue among mediums in Freud's practice, and explores the crucial cross-pollinating relationship between his etchings and his works on canvas. Pared down to essentials of line, often depicting figures cropped or isolated against empty backgrounds, Freud's prints achieve a startling degree of psychological tension and formal abstraction. Etching is here revealed as a medium uniquely suited to Freud's distinct artistic goals.

The revolutionary 'photocrome' process was unveiled at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900. This unique new approach permitted the first-ever colour images of the world's most famous sites and landmarks, and elicited unprecedented admiration on both sides of the Atlantic. The process remained in vogue until the 1920s, before being superseded by more modern colour photography methods. This book offers a richly varied collection of over 300 such images from 47 countries. They continue to astonish not only by virtue of their freshness and naivet�, but also because of their remarkable realism. As such, they represent a mute yet vivid testament to a forgotten era.

Ernst Kirchner, seminal expressionist painter and founding member of the influential artists' collective Die Brücke, came to the Swiss mountains during World War I to recuperate from a nervous breakdown. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and his Friends is the first book to explore how Kirchner became a role model, teacher, and mentor for younger artists during his time in Davos. The momentous artistic exchange between Kirchner and his young admirers—whose ranks included the German Philipp Bauknecht, the Dutch Jan Wiegers, and the members of the Swiss Gruppe Rot-Blau—established a dialogue that had a formative influence on the direction of European art in the twentieth century. This matchless volume provides a record of the extraordinary bond that developed between a legendary—yet ailing—artist and the up-and-coming Gruppe Rot-Blaue in Switzerland.
