Books : Iznik: The Artistry of Ottoman Ceramics (Hardcover)
By the time Vivienne Eliot was committed to an asylum for what would be the final nine years of her life, she had been abandoned by her husband T.S. Eliot and shunned by …literary London. Yet Vivienne was neither insane nor insignificant. She generously collaborated in her husbands literary efforts, taking dictation, editing his drafts, and writing articles for his magazine, Criterion. Her distinctive voice can be heard in his poetry. And paradoxically, it was the unhappiness of the Eliots marriage that inspired some of the poets most distinguished work, from The Family Reunion to The Waste Land. This first biography ever written about Vivienne draws on hundreds of previously unpublished papers, journals and letters to portray a spontaneous, loving, but fragile woman who had an important influence on her husbands work, as well as a great poet whose behavior was hampered by psychological and sexual impulses he could not fully acknowledge.Intriguing and provocative, Painted Shadow gracefully rescues Vivienne Eliot from undeserved obscurity, and is indispensable for anyone wishing to understand T.S. Eliot, Vivienne, or the world in which they traveled. read more

Papunya Paintingexplores the lost chapter of the Papunya Tula western desert art movement. Beautifully illustrated it includes essays from experts in the field and also p…rovides readers with interpretation of the iconography in the artworks. The 30 works that will feature in the book fall between the period 1972, when Geoffrey Bardon, the art teacher credited with initiating the Papunya movement, left Papunya and the early to mid 1980s, when the first desert canvases were being included in art galleries. This period has been overlooked in all Papunya Tula exhibitions and publications and most of the works have not been seen by Australian audiences in the three decades since they were painted. The book will introduce and explore these canvases as cultural documents in the social milieu of the Papunya settlement and in the wider history of Aboriginal art and social change. read more
