A memoir of the twentieth-century art world, from the famed Art Institute of Chicago curator, critic, and historian. Katharine Kuh made it her personal mission to bring modern art to the people of America. In 1935, in the midst of the Great Depression, she opened Chicago’s first commercial avant-garde art gallery, exhibiting Paul Klee, Marc Chagall, Ansel Adams, Alexander Calder, and Joan Miró. She went on to serve as the Art Institute of Chicago’s first curator of modern painting and sculpture. Her long career also took her to New York, where she was an art critic for the Saturday Review. Kuh traveled extensively, developing close friendships with many of the artists she championed and admired, including Mark Rothko, Edward Hopper, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Fernand Léger. In this “scintillating collection of incisive essays,” Kuh takes you on a personal tour of the art world she loved. With her keen wit and insight, she shares personal remembrances of the artists she knew, from their personal lives to their creative influences and working methods. Kuh also elaborates on what inspired her most, the difference between looking and seeing, and the adventurous thrill of curatorial sleuthing (Chicago Tribune). Also included is a preface by Kuh’s close friend, art historian Avis Berman, sharing details of Kuh’s personal life that make her story even more compelling. “Kuh focuses a sharp, critical eye on the art, the artists, and the small, extraordinary world in which they all struggled and triumphed.” —ARTnews

The career of the German-American painter and educator Hans Hofmann (1880–1966) describes the arc of artistic modernism from pre–World War I Munich and Paris to mid twentieth-century Greenwich Village. His career also traces the transatlantic engagement of modern painting with the materials of its own making, a relationship that is perhaps still not completely understood. In these interrelated narratives, Hofmann is a central protagonist, providing a vital link between nineteenth- and twentieth-century art practice and between European and American modernism. The remarkable vitality of his later work affords insight not only into the style but also the literal substance of this formative period of artistic and material innovation. This richly illustrated book, the fourth in the Getty Conservation Institute’s Artist’s Materials series, presents a thorough examination of Hofmann’s late-career materials. Initial chapters present an informative overview of Hofmann’s life and work in Europe and America and discuss his crucial role in the development of Abstract Expressionism. Subsequent chapters present a detailed analysis of Hofmann’s materials and techniques and explore the relationship of the artist’s mature palette to shifts in the style and aging characteristics of his paintings. The book concludes with lessons for the conservation of modernist paintings generally, and particularly those that incorporate both traditional and modern paint media. This book will be of value to conservators, art historians, conservation scientists, and general readers with an interest in modern art.

Art/Museums takes the study of international relations to the art museum. It seeks to persuade those who study international relations to take art/museums seriously and museum studies to take up the insights of international relations. And it does so at a time when both international relations and art are said to be at an end-that is, out of control and beyond sight of their usual constituencies. The book focuses on the British Museum, the National Gallery of London, the Museum of Iraq, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Getty museums, the Guggenheim museums, and "museum" spaces instantly created by the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. The art includes works over which museums might struggle, acquire through questionable means, hoard and possibly lose, such as the Parthenon sculptures, Raphael's Madonna of the Pinks, the ancient art of Babylon, modern art, and the art/museum itself in an era of rapid museum expansion. Bringing art, museums, and international relations together draws on the art technique of collage, which combines disparate objects, themes, and time periods in one work to juxtapose unexpected elements, leaving the viewer to relate objects that are not where they are expected to be.
