      Description
      Art lovers can list history’s most important art objects, but what many don’t know are the dramatic, funny, and sometimes bizarre stories behind these most famous works. Spanning the last 500 years of art history, this book revisits fifty momentous events that changed the course of art—days when now world-famous works like Michelangelo’s David or Marcel Duchamp’s urinal were unveiled for the first time. In Key Moments in Art, chance meetings spur artists to create exciting new styles such as Impressionism or Cubism, landmark performances take place, and revolutionary exhibitions open. The book also looks at fights, lawsuits, auctions, and crime–from the theft of the Mona Lisa to the day van Gogh’s Sunflowers become the most expensive painting ever sold.

      Working chronologically, this addition to the Art Essentials series gives readers fifty bite-sized stories from the art world. Art historian Lee Cheshire breathes new life into favorite works of art by giving them context and sharing the gossip they created. Complete with Art Essentials’ signature sidebars, featuring key artists, collections, and events related to each moment, this book is perfect for the art devotee as well as the occasional museum visitor.

      Lee Cheshire is Senior Editor and Copywriter at Tate and is the author of London in Paint, a survey of painting in London since the 17th-century.

      Description
      David Gessner had always known of John Hay. A nature-writing legend, author of fifteen books, Hay was something of a hero to the younger Gessner. But it wasn’t until he returned to his childhood home on Cape Cod that Gessner befriended the older man. At first, Gessner thought he might write a biography of a writer he admired, but Hay became more friend than subject, and Gessner’s book became a dramatic record of what the young man learned from his elder.The Prophet of Dry Hill is the beautifully written and compelling story of their year together. But more than just a book about friendship, it’s a lyrical testament to the importance of living a life connected to the wild. John Hay lived deeply on one piece of land on Cape Cod for sixty years. As a consequence, he has much to tell Gessner, and us, about the importance of cultivating deep connections to the land we live on. His words speak to our forgotten need for space and for reaching beyond ourselves to the world outside. In our increasingly frenetic world, a life like John Hay’s—rooted, connected to the natural world, wild—provides a radical counterpoint to our screen-filled existence.
      Bio
      David Gessner is the author of ten books, including The Return of the Osprey and All the Wild That Remains. Gessner is the editor of Ecotone and teaches at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

      “This book is an enormous gift, an act of preservation as important as any chunk of land purchased by the Nature Conservancy.”
      —Bill McKibben

      “For people who truly live there, Cape Cod is not a place but a religion. And for many, the environmentalist John Hay is its prophet.”
      —Amanda Heller, Boston Globe

      “A tender, luminous book…a picture of the young writer as pilgrim, seeking to connect with a living tradition even as it slips away, and in the process, discovering a new story of his own.”

      Description
      A kaleidoscopic overview of the influential artist and art director, cataloging thirty years of his work and his quest through the world of imagery.
      Beginning in the early 1980s, artist Gianluigi Colin began to delve into the daily newspapers to extract words, images, and signs that caught his attention. With an eye on the world around him, Colin assembled a complex, varied, and layered vision, documenting daily life as it unfolded and became history. The mission he has set for himself is to “clothe” the news headlines and events, while systematically devising his own newspaper, creating an ongoing dialogue with the international press. This visual autobiography reveals the artist’s evolving confrontation between the two worlds of imagery and words, while offering a visual account of the graphic projects that Colin realized through his role as art director for the leading newspaper Corriere della Sera.
      Bio
      Gianluigi Colin is a multifaceted artist. During his years as art director of the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, he was also a lecturer and university professor, writing news items and essays on photography and on visual communication in general. He has exhibited around the world, and his artwork is in private collections, museums, and public institutions in Italy and abroad.

      Description
      A warm, insightful memoir by an acclaimed historian that explores the struggles of twentieth-century Europe through the lives and hopes of a single family—his own
       
      Following his relatives’ remarkable stories, Mark Mazower recounts the sacrifices and silences that marked a generation and their descendants. With a rich array of letters, photographs, interviews, and archives, he creates a moving portrait of a family that fate drove into the siege of Stalingrad, the Vilna ghetto, occupied Paris, and even the ranks of the Wehrmacht. His British father was the lucky one, the son of Russian Jewish emigrants who settled in London after escaping civil war and revolution. Max, the grandfather, had started out as a member of the socialist Bund organization and manned the barricades against tsarist troops, but never spoke of it. His wife, Frouma, came from a family ravaged by the Great Terror yet somehow making their way in Soviet society.

      In the centenary of the Russian Revolution, What You Did Not Tell recalls a brand of socialism erased from memory: humanistic, impassioned, and broad-ranging in its sympathies. But it also examines the unexpected happiness that may await history’s losers, the power of friendship, and the love of place that allowed Max and Frouma’s son to call England home.
      Bio

      Reviews
      “Mark Mazower is a great historian and a subtle writer always attentive to humane detail.” —Orhan Pamuk, recipient of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature 

      “Within the experience of a single family can be seen the forces that shaped whole nations and peoples…Mark Mazower, a distinguished British-born historian, explores the story of his own family, especially that of his paternal grandparents, Jews who emerged at the turn of the twentieth century from the poverty and backwardness of the Russian provinces into the ferment of socialist struggle and, eventually, into the turmoil of the wider world.”—Wall Street Journal
       
      “Unusual and exceptionally interesting…[Mazower] excavates, through rigorous research and tenacious sleuthing, the history of a family whose lives spanned the entire twentieth century, and whose fates were closely interwoven with its many ideological terrors and violent upheavals.” —New York Review of Books
       
      “A fascinating and scholarly reconstruction of a family’s life and the myriad relations, friends, acquaintances, places, houses, and adventures that spin out from it…What You Did Not Tell is proof of what historical research can yield, providing you have the determination, skill and boundless curiosity to pursue it to the bitter end.” —The Guardian
       
      “‘How is it that the places we live in come to feel that they are ours?’ a noted historian asks in this exacting memoir…Mazower, plowing through letters, diaries, and archives, finds that his grandfather’s story encompasses many of the horrors of twentieth-century Europe.” —The New Yorker

      “Many families have stories that are passed down to the next generation, but Mazower has gone beyond storytelling and legend. He has repaid the debt to those who went before him.” —Jerusalem Post

      “An enchanting, beautifully written memoir…There are few historians who can write as grippingly as Mazower about secrets and the painstaking work of revealing them.” —Financial Times
