A sweeping survey of the arts of Ireland spanning 150 years and an astonishing range of artists and media This groundbreaking book captures a period in Ireland's history when countless foreign architects, artisans, and artists worked side by side with their native counterparts. Nearly all of the works within this remarkable volume-many of them never published before-have been drawn from North American collections. This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition to celebrate the Irish as artists, collectors, and patrons over 150 years of Ireland's sometimes turbulent history. Featuring the work of a wide range of artists-known and unknown-and a diverse array of media, the catalogue also includes an impressive assembly of essays by a pre-eminent group of international experts working on the art and cultural history of Ireland. Major essays discuss the subjects of the Irish landscape and tourism, Irish country houses, and Dublin's role as a center of culture and commerce. Also included are numerous shorter essays covering a full spectrum of topics and artworks, including bookbinding, ceramics, furniture, glass, mezzotints, miniatures, musical instruments, pastels, silver, and textiles.
Published to commemorate an exhibition presented by Gagosian in partnership with English Heritage, this stunning volume centers on Rembrandt s masterpiece Self-Portrait with Two Circles (c. 1665), from the collection of Kenwood House in London. The painting is considered to be Rembrandt s greatest late self-portrait and is accompanied here by examples of the genre from leading artists of the past one hundred years. These include works by Francis Bacon, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lucian Freud, and Pablo Picasso, as well as contemporary artists such as Georg Baselitz, Glenn Brown, Urs Fischer, Damien Hirst, Howard Hodgkin, Giuseppe Penone, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, and Rudolf Stingel, among others. Also featured is a new work by Jenny Saville, created in response to Rembrandt s masterpiece. Full-color plates of the works, generous details, and installation views of the exhibition accompany an expansive essay by art historian David Freedberg that provides a close look at the self-portraits created by Rembrandt throughout his life and considers the role of the Dutch master as the precursor of all modern painting.

Gastric Band and Beyond: Maximise your weight loss is a unique book designed to be a motivator, a comforter and an inspiration for those struggling with their weight. It is a modern-day survival guide that will allow you to shed the pounds and maintain your weight loss, giving you energy and a new lease of life. There is a wealth of literature out there in the medical world about the details and outcomes of weight loss surgery but actually the operation is only a small junction on the long, tortuous road to successful weight loss. The complication rates, excess percentage weight loss and various techniques may be of interest to you but are actually less important than the questions like, "how will I cope without comfort eating?", "what will my partner think of me when I physically change?", "how will I cope with increased interest from the opposite sex?" and "what do I do about excess skin post operatively?". These are the questions that you probably want to know but are too afraid to ask your busy doctors. How do we know this? Well, the main author is a patient, has received a gastric band, has battled with the ups and downs of post operative life and is a full time obesity nurse specialist and counsellor. She is uniquely placed to give an insight into the thoughts and feelings of patients from her own experiences and from the wealth of information from her clients that she has built up over the years. This approach and writing style is synergized with the experience of the second author who is a surgical registrar with a specialist interest in weight loss surgery. The two writing styles and approaches compliment each other and provide an excellent balance between empathy, compassion and fact. The book takes the reader on a well sign-posted journey. The book begins with a chapter that will be of enormous comfort to anyone who has battled with the social isolation and emotional turmoil that goes hand- in- hand with being overweight. The feelings of self-loathing, guilt and fear are all explored in an empathic way and Sharon recalls her own very personal experience. The book then proceeds to explore the processes of seeking help and the trials and tribulations that this brings. Preparation for surgery is then explored. Surgery is demystified and this should relax any potential candidate. The very important long term post-operative guide to living with a band is detailed and this is where Sharon's experience shines through. The band is a tool to aid weight loss not the solution but with this book and its advice, excellent sustainable weight loss can be achieved. In summary, this book is a must for anyone considering weight loss surgery and will be essential reading for those who have already had surgery.
