New Books at the Bailey/Howe

Out in the Open, Jesús Carrasco

Carrasco’s debut novel offers a vague, terrifying, and violent tale told in sparse, taut prose reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy. An unnamed boy is on the run from his harsh father and a sadistic bailiff…The violence will make some readers balk, but passages of lovely writing coupled with the jaw-clenching tension and moments of hope make this a welcome introduction a new voice. – Publishers Weekly

 

Face and Mask: a Double History, Hans Belting

This fascinating book presents the first cultural history and anthropology of the face across centuries, continents, and media. Ranging from funerary masks and masks in drama to the figural work of contemporary artists including Cindy Sherman and Nam June Paik, renowned art historian Hans Belting emphasizes that while the face plays a critical role in human communication, it defies attempts at visual representation…From creations by Van Eyck and August Sander to works by Francis Bacon, Ingmar Bergman, and Chuck Close, Face and Mask takes a remarkable look at how, through the centuries, the physical visage has inspired and evaded artistic interpretation. – Princeton University Press

 

Deanna Petherbridge: Drawing and Dialogue, Deanna Petherbridge, Gill Perry, Roger Malbert, Martin Clayton, Angela Weight

Since the 1960s, Deanna Petherbridge’s practice has moved between making drawings and writing critically about art and architecture. She has designed murals and stage-sets, curated exhibitions, taught in the studio and lectured internationally – a career trajectory that has anticipated the multiple practices of younger conceptual artists…This new monograph, published to coincide with a retrospective at the Whitworth Art Gallery, celebrates the vitality and originality of an extraordinary body of work. – Circa Press

 

Weird Dinosaurs, John Pickrell

From the outback of Australia to the Gobi Desert of Mongolia and the savanna of Madagascar, the award-winning science writer and dinosaur enthusiast John Pickrell embarks on a world tour of new finds, meeting the fossil hunters who work at the frontier of discovery…The stuff of adventure movies and scientific revolutions, Weird Dinosaurs examines the latest breakthroughs and new technologies that are radically transforming our understanding of the distant past. Pickrell opens a vivid portal to a brand-new age of fossil discovery, in which fossil hunters are routinely redefining what we know and how we think about prehistory's most iconic and fascinating creatures. – Columbia University Press

 

Bosch: 5th Centenary Exhibition, Pilar Silva Maroto

This book, published for the exhibition at the Museo del Prado to mark the 500th anniversary of Bosch’s death, provides up-to-date information on the artist’s life and family, examines the data available regarding his patrons, surveys his status as painter and draftsman, and investigates his visual and textual sources as well as his values and ideology, with particular reference to The Garden of Earthly Delights and his depictions of Hell. The catalogue entries for the paintings belonging to the Prado collection discuss the findings of recent technical research carried out specifically for this exhibition. – Thames and Hudson
