WINTER
WINTER
A selection of the most beautiful, touching, transformative and amusing expressions of the winter season drawn from Tate's collection. Divided into key themes - 'Seasonal Views & Landscapes', 'Religious Imagery', 'Celebration & Festivity' and 'Friends & Family/Journeying' - each of the works of art included has been individually selected for the particular way in which the artist has attempted to capture this special time of year.

Works of art - including paintings, drawings, sculptures, illustrations and installations - are punctuated by brief captions adding background detail or additional information about the art, artists and their subjects.

Featured artists: J.M.W Turner, Ruskin Spear, Norbert Goeneutte, Marie-Louise Von Motesiczky, Paul Nash, Carel Weight, Ben Nicholson, Lucien Pissarro, L.S. Lowry, Richard Hamilton, Peter Doig, Grayson Perry and David Shrigley.

Sometimes traditional, sometimes contemporary, often beautiful and occasionally telling, placed together these beautiful images create a fascinating and enlightening journey through the visual portrayal of winter and the holiday season in Western art.

Wonderland
Wonderland
A superb tribute to the New Zealand landscape photography of Whites Aviation. Many of New Zealand's best hand-coloured photos were produced by Whites Aviation between the 1950s and 1970s and changed the way we saw our country. These glorious scenic vistas were a sensation, adorning offices and lounges throughout the land. Now, despite massive changes in society and photography, these images remain sought-after collectors' items, a charming reminder of gentler, quieter times.
The photos in this book were first presented in Peter Alsop's book 'Hand-Coloured New Zealand: The Photographs of Whites Aviation', which was published in large format in 2016 by Potton & Burton, and which was an immediate hit, quickly selling out.
'Wonderland' collects the best of these images in a more condensed edition, presented in the style of a New Zealand pictorial and geographically organised from Northland and Auckland, down to the deep south. The introduction tells the story of Whites Aviation, with profiles of the key personalities behind this company's success.

Yayoi Kusama
Yayoi Kusama
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (b.1929) is arguably Japan's most famous living artist. Her originality, innovation and powerful desire to communicate have propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades. During this time, Kusama has explored painting, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance and installation, as well as product design.

From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city. Returning to Japan in her forties, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition she has recently achieved. In her ninth decade her imagination remains richly creative and she continues to extend the range of her practice.

Having accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist's work to be staged in the UK, this lavishly illustrated book features an introductory essay by Director of Tate Modern, Frances Morris, as well as four other substantial essays by leading international critics. Topics covered included Kusama's time in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works and an exploration of her art from a psychoanalytical point of view."

Year in the Art World
Year in the Art World
In the last few decades, the world of contemporary art has become more globalized and visible than ever before. And yet this world has long been perceived as closed and obscure, provoking in the uninitiated a range of responses from reverence to bafflement and rage. Taking the reader on a cross-continental journey through a notional calendar year in the field of art, Matthew Israel lifts the veil on a world that emerges from his narrative as diverse, adventurous, nuanced and meaningful to all. From Los Angeles to Hong Kong via Paris and New York, the author travels among the world's best-known artists, curators, critics, gallerists and institutions as they work towards some of the art world's most defining international events.

A Year in the Art World relates the exploits of a curious insider, who ventures deep into the workings of the art industry to ask: what is it that people in the art world actually do? What drives an interest in working with art? How do artworks acquire value? And how has technology transformed the art world of today? Israel combines in-depth personal profiles with expert context to reveal both new and longstanding artworld realities. From biennials in summer to auctions in the fall, this fascinating narrative reveals how 'the art world' describes a realm that is both surprisingly vast and deeply interconnected.
