Product Description & Reviews
The first monograph on the popular New York-based artist Will Cotton, best known for his large-scale portraits of female nudes in candy-coated dreamlike landscapes. Will Cotton is best known for his depictions of “landscapes” composed of sweets: fondant frostings, peppermint sticks, marshmallows, and cotton-candy clouds often inhabited by languidly posed females. Executed with flawless skill and technique, Cotton’s work is an optical delight and is formally resonant with the influences of seventeenth-century rococo paintings, the nudes of Bouguereau and Cabanel, and the classic American pin-ups of George Petty and Alberto Vargas. Cotton’s figures are often inspired by models such as burlesque performers and fellow artists from the art, film, and music worlds.This book-the artist’s first monograph-is a celebration of Cotton’s work in all mediums: prints, drawings, canvases, and public events. In addition to this elegantly designed trade volume, a limited edition of one hundred copies accompanied by a signed and numbered print will be available through Pace Prints.

They provide glimpses of lost late antique luxury gospel books and art of the fifth to seventh centuries, in the Aksumite kingdom of Ethiopia as well as in the Christian East. As this work shows, their artwork is closely related to Syriac, Armenian, Greek, and Georgian gospel books and to the art of late antique (Coptic) Egypt, Nubia, and Himyar (Yemen).

During the Ming Dynasty numerous new animal themes were created to convey political and ethical messages current at court. As the result a sophisticated language of Chinese animal painting was developed, employing both the animals’ symbolic associations and homonymic puns. Hou-mei Sung’s exciting rediscovery of some of these lost meanings has led to a full-scale investigation of the evolving history of Chinese animal painting. Distinct symbolic meanings were associated with individual
