The Professor and the Siren

New to the Collection - Tue, 05/27/2014 - 11:00pm
Title: The Professor and the Siren
Author: Tomasi di Lampedusa, Giuseppe
Imprint: New York : : New York Review Books
Call #: ON ORDER
Format: Book
Series: New York Review Books Classics
Description:

"In the last two years of his life, the Sicilian aristocrat Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, in addition to his internationally celebrated novel, The Leopard, also composed three shorter pieces of fiction that confirm and expand our picture of his brilliant late-blooming talent. In the parable-like "Joy and the Law," a mediocre clerk in receipt of an unexpected supplement to his Christmas bonus (an awkwardly outsize version of the traditional panettone) finds his visions of domestic bliss upset by unwritten rules of honor and obligation. At the heart of the collection stands "The Siren" and its redoubtable hero, Professor La Ciura, the only Hellenist scholar to claim firsthand experience of ancient Greek--from the mouth of the beautiful half-human sea creature he loved in his youth. The volume closes with the last piece of writing completed by the author, "The Blind Kittens," a story originally conceived as the first chapter of a follow-up to The Leopard, a novel that would have traced the post-unification emergence of a new agrarian ruling class in Sicily, coarser than its predecessor but equally blind to the inexorable march of change. This elegant new translation of Lampedusa's complete short fiction, the first by a single hand, updates and corrects previously available English versions"--

John Singer Sargent Watercolors

New to the Collection - Tue, 05/20/2014 - 11:00pm
Title: John Singer Sargent Watercolors
Author: Sargent, John Singer
Imprint: Boston, Mass. : Brooklyn, N.Y. : : MFA Publications Brooklyn Museum
Call #: 759.13 Sa24hirs
Format: Book
Series:
Description:

John Singer Sargent's approach to watercolor was unconventional. Disregarding contemporary aesthetic standards that called for carefully delineated and composed landscapes filled with transparent washes, his confidently bold, dense strokes, loosely defined forms, and unexpected vantage points startled critics and fellow practitioners alike. One reviewer of an exhibition in London proclaimed him "an eagle in a dove-cote"; another called his work "swagger" watercolors. For Sargent, watercolors were not so much about swagger as about a renewed and liberated approach to painting. His vision became more personal and his works began to interconnect as he considered the way one image--often of friends or favorite places--enhanced another. Sargent chose to participate in only two major watercolor exhibitions in the United States during his lifetime. John Singer Sargent Watercolors reunites nearly one hundred works from these two collections for the first time.
