Russian Portraits In Watercolour 1825 1855 . As early as the eighteenth century, portrait painting as a genre was unusually advanced in Russia. Among the many foreign artists who were invited there during the period architects, sculptors and goldsmiths as well as painters the majority of painters specialized in portraits. Under their influence a Russian school of portrait painting grew up, counting among its numbers artists such as Nikitin, Argunov and Rokotov, and later Levitzky and Borovikovsky. From that time, court portraiture in Russia was to eclipse in importance all other genres, whether seascapes, landscapes or still lives.This work reveals for the first time a large number of paintings - chiefly portraits of contemporaries of Pushkin - taken from one of the most significant and important private collections of Russian watercolor portraits of the nineteenth century. It is of exceptional interest not only for the quality of the works reproduced, but also for the great variety of both artists and subjects represented.

The Portraits Of Madame De Pompadour. "An immensely eloquent tour de force, demonstrating the complex and often contradictory position of women in both intellectual and visual culture. Goodman examines Pompadour as an icon of court culture who simultaneously represents sexuality and the life of the mind. The paintings are the visual record of a remarkable and self-conscious fashioning of femininity." --Dympna Callaghan, "author of Feminist Companion to Shakespeare" "Elise goodman's stimulating and richly illustrated study recovers the visual record of women's place in the French Enlightenment. She traces a trend, engineered as much by the women themselves as by the artists who painted them, in which learning joins beauty to create a new iconography of female portraiture." --Susan S Lanser, author of "Fictions of Authority: Women Writers and Narrative Voice."

Portraits. For artist Wolfgang Tillmans, portraiture is a collaborative process between photographer and accomplice. While Tillmans' photographs are often referred to as casual, they are actually the result of a carefully constructed process of engagement with his models. Each sitter, be they a world-famous rock star or a family member, projects both vulnerability and dignity. Presented here are a selection of some of the best of these portraits, taken between 1988 to 2001, and chosen by Tillmans himself. Subjects include filmmaker John Waters, architect Rem Koolhaas, musicians Moby and Michael Stipe, actresses Irm Hermann and Chloe Sevigny, as well as the artist's family and friends.
