Christmas at Hatchards: Art

John Nash

Andy Friend

£30

Re-introducing us to John Nash, Friend interweaves his renowned paintings, wood-engravings and botanical illustration work with art-world friendships (Walter Sickert, Edward Bawden) and married life with Christine Kuhlenthal. A brilliant, and long overdue biography.

 

Matisse: The Books

Louise Rogers Lalaurie

£65

Created in the turbulent 1930s and 40s, these “livres d’artiste” reveal Matisse’s profound creativity: the interplay of word and image, poetry and paper cut-outs. In turn, they tell us about his life, philosophy, faith and resistance as Lalaurie explores in this stunningly beautiful edition.

 

Spirit of Place: Artists, Writers and the British Landscape

Susan Owens

£25

A magnificent panoramic view of the British landscape as seen through the eyes of writers and artists from Bede and the Gawain-poet to Gainsborough, Austen, Turner and Constable; from Paul Nash and Barbara Hepworth to Robert Macfarlane.

 

Artemisia

Letizia Treves et al.

£35

The paintings of Artemisia Gentileschi are internationally recognised as great masterpieces of the Italian Baroque. Full of dramatic power, they tell the stories of heroic women such as Judith, St Catherine of Alexandria and, indeed, Artemisia herself.

 

Goya: A Portrait of the Artist

Janis Tomlinson

£30

A monumental account of the great Spanish artist Francisco Goya, the painter and printmaker whose work defines a society in upheaval and war. Tomlinson reveals Goya’s family life, extensive travels and re-views his late years of disillusion as a time of liberation and experiment.
