            Art in Britain 1660-1815 presents the first social history of British art from the period known as the long 18th century, and offers a fresh and challenging look at the major developments in painting, drawing, and printmaking that took place during this period. It describes how a...n embryonic London art world metamorphosed into a flourishing community of native and immigrant practitioners, whose efforts ultimately led to the rise of a British School deemed worthy of comparison with its European counterparts. Within this larger narrative are authoritative accounts of the achievements of celebrated artists such as Peter Lely, William Hogarth, Thomas Gainsborough, and J.M.W. Turner. David H. Solkin has interwoven their stories and many others into a critical analysis of how visual culture reinforced, and on occasion challenged, established social hierarchies and prevailing notions of gender, class, and race as Britain entered the modern age. More than 300 artworks, accompanied by detailed analysis, beautifully illustrate how Britain's transformation into the world's foremost commercial and imperial power found expression in the visual arts, and how the arts shaped the nation in return.

            This publication documents the exhibition "United States of Latin America," held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), in collaboration with the Kadist Art Foundation. Bringing together their shared and ongoing engagement with artistic practices from Latin America, J...ens Hoffmann and Pablo Leon de la Barra have assembled one of the most significant contemporary survey's of recent art from the region. Hoffmann and de la Barra's project draws attention not only to the geographic territories of Latin America itself, but also to its relation within the wider scope of the Americas, and its position in a global artistic context. This book offers a framework for critical insight into artworks dealing with crucial social, industrial, or ecological concerns, and also for interrogating the very categories and terminologies used to construct the notion of Latin America. This catalogue includes a conversation between Stefan Benchoam, Fernanda Brenner, Eduardo Carrera, Camila Marambio, and Marina Reyes Franco (moderated by Heidi Rabben), a glossary, a reflective essay by Hoffmann "after the fact," and images from the exhibition.

            Traditional post-colonial scholarship on art and imperialism emphasizes tensions between colonizing cores and subjugated peripheries, while the ties between London and British white settler colonies have been comparatively neglected. Artworks not only reveal the controlling inten...tions of imperialist artists but also in their afterlives were used by others to contest cultural identity within the British ranks frequently assumed to be homogeneous. British Art for Australia, 1860-1953: The Acquisition of Artworks from the United Kingdom by Australian National Galleries represents the first systematic and comparative study of collecting British art in Australia between 1860 and 1953 using the archives of the Australian National Galleries and key British institutions. Multiple readerships in the disciplines of art history, cultural history and museology are addressed by analyzing how Australians used British art to carve a distinct identity, which artworks were desirable, economically attainable, and why, and how the acquisition of British art fits into a broader cultural context of the British world. It considers the often competing roles of the British Old Masters (e.g. Romney and Constable), Victorian (e.g. Madox Brown and Millais) and Modern artists (e.g. Nash and Spencer) alongside political and economic factors, including the developing global art market, imperial commerce, Australian Federation, the First World War and the coming of age of the Commonwealth.
