WILLIAM HEATH ROBINSON., Hamilton, James.
45 Hamilton, James. WILLIAM HEATH ROBINSON.
London Pavilion 1992 1851457194 / 9781851457199 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine William Heath Robinson. 
151 pp, 12 1/8" H. B&w and colour reproductions, photographs. "In this first fully illustrated monograph of William Heath Robinson's life and work, James Hamilton makes a refreshingly new exploration of the personality of this convivial family man and deeply serious artist. Through fascinating new insights, he traces the influences on his art, the development of his uniquely individual humorous style, and the unexpected path that his career followed: the switch from landscapes to book illustration, and early success as illustrator of Poe, Cervantes and Hans Andersen; the creation of his engaging character Uncle Lubin, his cartoons for magazines, and the First World War anti-German satires which earned him an enthusiastic following. Only after he had submitted his illustrations for a 'Complete Works of Shakespeare' in 1922, promptly cancelled, did Heath Robinson turn away from literary illustration. Then came the immensely popular books on golf and railways and motoring, murals and decorations for a liner, gadgets for the Ideal Home Exhibition of 1934, and a wealth of inspired magazine and commercial work. Hamilton rounds off his account of Heath Robinson's life and career with detailed appendices, including a chronology of his life, an important discussion of his sources, comprehensive bibliographies, and lists of his exhibitions, advertising work and ephemera. Published here for the first time are examples of the recently discovered Shakespeare illustrations." Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling.

"The Flemish artist Francois Balthazar Solvyns (1760-1824) is little known, but his series of etchings of the Hindus provides a rich and compelling portrait of India two hundred years ago. With commitment to faithful representation and with the sensi-bilities of an astutely observant artist, Solvyns portrays the people of India in their occupations, festi-vals and cultural life with immediacy and sympathy. Solvyns' life is itself fascinating, and his portrayal of India constitutes an unrivalled visual account of the people of Bengal in the late eighteenth century."

Bristol Classical Press, London, 1999. 
99 pp, 8 1/2" H, soft cover. ISBN 1853995584 B&w photographs, drawings. "This survey for the general student looks at the art created for and by the Romans and what they wanted from it. In place of the usual historical outline approach, (it) look s at the subject by genre; the Romans' appreciation of painting, sculpture and the decorative arts, in a society where the majority of work was commissioned, was different from that of the present day. Art for a world without printing or p h o t o g r a p h y to spread visual images meant much more direct contact with the artist and influence by the patron. Drawing on literary sources as well as illustrations from many parts of the Roman world, this survey up to the time of Constan ti ne c on si de rs w ha t Romans hoped to achieve and how far they were successful. Included are suggestions for further study, a bibliography and recommended sites to view the art discussed."

JAPANESE PORTRAIT SCULPTURE., Hisashi Mori.  Translated and adapted by W. Chie Ishibashi.

Kodansha, Tokyo, 1977, first English language edition. 
150 pp, small 4to (10 5/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0870112864 Profusely illustrated with b&w and color photographs. "A vital, rich tradition for over eight centuries, Japanese portrait sculpture is an art that has been unjustly ignor ed by the West. This book, the first in a Western language devoted solely to the subject, constitutes a major step in the transition from indifference to appreciation....(it) illuminates the principal characteristics and eccentricities of t h i s a r t , concisely delineating its social setting and historical and stylistic development. An intelligent discussion of individual works completes the picture, allowing the reader to evaluate, for the first time, the range and depth of th is l on g- n eg le ct ed art. Many of the obscurities of Japanese portrait sculpture are derived from its birth and development within the traditions of Buddhist sculpture. The use of statues as objects of worship, the depositing within them of com mem ora tiv e and vo tiv e o bjects, and their placement in 'portrait halls' - all these aspects of the Buddhist background are clarified in this book, giving the reader a full, insightful understanding of Japanese portrait sculpture....Lay scu lptu re d iver ged fr om t he m ains trea m of Buddhist sculpture in the thirteenth century, and though it is more easily understood than Buddhist portraiture, this books' knowlegeable description of its origins and development will greatly facilita te it s app recia tion ."

J. W. WATERHOUSE.  (J W), Hobson, Anthony.  (John W. Waterhouse.)

Phaidon, Oxford, (1989). 
126 pp + index, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with color and b&w reproductions. "John W. Waterhouse (1849-1917) was acclaimed during his lifetime as one of England's finest painters. This judgment has been endorsed in recent years as the painter's reputation - and the value of his work - have reached new heights...He began to exhitit in the 1870s and from then on his career unfolded steadily; he was elected a full Royal Academician in 1895, and his Diploma painting, 'The Mermaid', remains one of the best-loved of all Victorian paintings. Waterhouse was a master of narrative painting, and in his historical and mythological works he displayed an unerring feeling for the dramatic moment, combined with a fine sense of composition and superb painting technique. But above all it is the haunting beauty of his wistful female models that has ensured his lasting popularity...Anthony Hobson brings a painter's eye to the appreciation of Waterhouse, and with its outstanding colour reproductions this new study will finally establish the artist as one of the great masters of Victorian painting." Faint erased pencil mark on free front endpaper, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light rubbing, light edge wrinkling, very light edge wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. VG/VG-

In tracing the lives and careers of over eighty of these women, it shows that New Zealand women painters, sculptors and other art makers have achieved vital and significant imagery.
