From 1874 to 1882, John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) produced more than 200 paintings and water-colors aside from portraiture, including figures in landscape settings, architectural studies, seascapes, subject paintings, and studies after old masters. From powerful studies of models in Paris in the mid-1870s to compelling paintings set in Venice in the early 1880s, the works published in this volume of the catalog raisonné show the variety of his aesthetic responses. He worked in the studio and en plein air, traveling widely during the eight years covered in this volume and painting in Paris, Brittany, Capri, Spain, North Africa, and Venice. This is the first time that Sargent's early work has been mapped so comprehensively. With very few exceptions, this beautifully produced book illustrates all the pictures under discussion in color. Each painting, including several which have never been published before, is documented in depth with full provenance, exhibition history, and bibliography, and in many cases new information is provided. The volume also reproduces a wealth of Sargent's preliminary and related drawings and of comparative works by other artists.

Here is an updated and enlarged edition of the sumptuously produced book, first published in 2003, that reproduces in colour and tritone all the lithographs and etchings by the distinguished Portuguese artist Paula Rego from across her whole career. This edition has some sixty new works, including five new series produced in the last ten years. Critic and personal friend of the artist Tom Rosenthal writes in absorbing detail on the iconography of each print, drawing on his extensive conversations with Rego. There is also a new chapter on the influence of the work of Irish playwright Martin McDonagh on Rego, as well as an updated section of Works Out of Series and a new introduction based on an interview by the author with Rego on her 76th birthday. This book includes a complete catalogue raisonne in which all the prints are again reproduced but this time in chronological sequence with detailed descriptions. Printmaker and artist Paul Coldwell contributes an essay on Paula Rego's graphic techniques. The chronology, list of public collections, list of solo exhibitions and select bibliography have all been updated.

The first catalogue raisonné in English, this 800-page volume documents all 1,120 works by French painter Nicolas de Staël (1914-55) in full color. Expanded and updated from the French catalogue raisonné of 1997, it is augmented with classic texts on de Stael's work, exhibition histories, provenance for each work and essays by, among others, former chief curator of the Phillips Collection, Eliza Rathbone. Made (and exhibited) contemporaneously with American abstract expressionism, de Staël's works are characterized by thick impastoed bricks of color that oscillate between landscape and abstraction, compact composition and a singularly intense sense of light. A major influence on American painters such as Richard Diebenkorn and Etel Adnan, de Staël's earliest American champion and collector, Duncan Phillips, founder of the Phillips Collection, called de Staël "the most gifted, the most influential and the most painterly" of modern European painters.
