    New Acquisitions

    Lots of new titles have been arriving at the Meader Fine Arts Library and we have something for everyone.

    2017 The Unfinshed Palazzo Book Cover Rothko: The Color Field Paintings Book Cover Wolfgang Tillmans 2017 Book Cover
  • "The story of Venice's "Unfinished Palazzo" told through the lives of three of its most unconventional, passionate, and fascinating residents: Luisa Casati, Doris Castlerosse, and Peggy Guggenheim" The Unfinished Palazzo: Life, Love and Art in Venice by Judith Mackrell.
  • "Mark Rothko's iconic paintings are some of the most profound works of twentieth-century Abstract Expressionism. This collection presents fifty large-scale artworks from the American master's color field period (1949-1970) alongside essays by Rothko's son, Christopher Rothko, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art curator of painting and sculpture Janet Bishop."- Rothko: The Color Field Paintings by Christopher Rothko and Janet Bishop
  • "Since the early 1990s, Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968) has established himself as one of the most exciting and innovative artists working today. The first photographer to win the Turner Prize (in 2000), his work is characterized by constant investigation into the boundaries of the photographic medium and a preoccupation with the process of photography itself. This new book, which accompanied an exhibition at Tate Modern, examines Tillmans's evolving practice, showcasing his photography but also his video, digital slide projections, publications, and recorded music." Wolfgang Tillmans by Chris Dercon (Editor), Helen Sainsbury (Editor), Wolfgang Tillmans (Contributor)
