Résumé: Il volume raccoglie una selezione di opere d'arte relative alla produzione artistica dell'occidente americano appartenenti alla collezione del Petrie Institute of Western American Art conservata presso il Denver Art Museum. Tale collezione risulta essere una delle più ricche e significative al mondo intorno a questo tema grazie alla rilevanza delle sue sculture bronzee, delle opere della prima modernità nonché delle testimonianze date dalle comunità artistiche di Tao e Santa Fe. Il tema cardine del libro è declinato nel periodo compreso tra l'inizio del XIX secolo e la metà del XX. L'eterogeneità della collezione emerge qualora il lettore sfogli le oltre duecento pagine dedicate a ritratti, scene di genere, paesaggi e dipinti di luoghi ancora selvaggi... La narrazione procede in modo cronologico e presenta anzitutto le prime figure di luminari (Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Remington e Charles M. Russell), ma anche uomini influenti (Robert Henri e gli artisti della comunità TAO) così come pittori modernisti particolarmente importanti (tra gli altri Maynard Dixon, Marsden Hartley e Raymond Jonson). Emerge chiaramente osservando le illustrazioni e leggendo i testi scritti da specialisti il clima artistico, culturale e identitario dell'America occidentale nel tempo. Il prologo a cura dello storico Dan Flores, così come l'epilogo della storica dell'arte Erika Doss mettono in luce il contesto più ampio nel quale si inserisce la storia dell'arte dell'occidente americano. Il presente volume viene pubblicato in occasione del tour di mostre che avrà inizio nel 2020 e dell'apertura della nuova sezione dedicata alla produzione artistica dell'America occidentale presso il Denver Art Museum nel 2021.

Résumé: No introduction can be more appropriate to the work than some account of the singular character whose name is given to the title-page, and who, through good report and bad report, has maintained a wonderful degree of importance in popular recollection. This cannot be ascribed to the distinction of his birth, which, though that of a gentleman, had in it nothing of high destination, and gave him little right to command in his clan. Neither, though he lived a busy, restless, and enterprising life, were his feats equal to those of other freebooters, who have been less distinguished. He owed his fame in a great measure to his residing on the very verge of the Highlands, and playing such pranks in the beginning of the 18th century, as are usually ascribed to Robin Hood in the middle ages,-and that within forty miles of Glasgow, a great commercial city, the seat of a learned university. Thus a character like his, blending the wild virtues, the subtle policy, and unrestrained license of an American Indian, was flourishing in Scotland during the Augustan age of Queen Anne and George I. Addison, it is probable, or Pope, would have been considerably surprised if they had known that there existed in the same island with them a personage of Rob Roy's peculiar habits and profession.

Résumé: In a colony struggling for survival, in a mysterious new world where infant mortality is high and sin is to blame, Samuel Sewall is committed to being a loving family man, a good citizen, and a fair-minded judge. Like any believing Puritan, he agonizes over what others think of him, while striving to act morally correct, keep the peace, and, when possible, enjoy a hefty slice of pie. His one regret is that months earlier, he didn’t sentence a group of pirates to death. What begins as a touching story of a bumbling man tasked with making judgments in a society where reason is often ephemeral quickly becomes the chilling narrative we know too well. And when public opinion wavers, Sewall learns that what has been done cannot be undone. Crane Pond explores the inner life of a well-meaning man who compromised with evil and went on to regret it. At once a searing view of the Trials, an empathetic portrait of one of the period’s most tragic figures, and an indictment of the malevolent power of idealism, it is a thrilling new telling of one of America’s founding stories.

Résumé: The Golden Age is an immensely satisfying and generous-hearted story about displacement, recovery, resilience, and love. Thirteen-year-old Frank Gold’s family has escaped from Hungary and the perils of World War II to the safety of Australia, but not long after their arrival Frank is diagnosed with polio. He is sent to a sprawling children’s hospital called The Golden Age, where he meets Elsa, the most beautiful girl he has ever seen, a girl who radiates pure light. Frank and Elsa fall in love, fueling one another’s rehabilitation, facing the perils of polio and adolescence hand in hand, and scandalizing the prudish staff of The Golden Age. Meanwhile, Frank and Elsa’s parents must cope with their changing realities. Elsa’s mother Margaret, who has given up everything to be a perfect mother, must reconcile her hopes and dreams with her daughter’s sickness. Frank’s parents, transplants to Australia from a war-torn Europe, are isolated newcomers in a country that they do not love and that does not seem to love them. Frank’s mother Ida, a renowned pianist in Hungary, refuses to allow the western deserts of Australia to become her home. But her husband, Meyer, slowly begins to free himself from the past and integrate into a new society.With tenderness and humor, The Golden Age tells a deeply moving story about illness and recovery. It is a book about learning to navigate the unfamiliar, about embracing music, poetry, death, and, most importantly, life.

Résumé: n 1919, in a small town in the province of Berry, France, under the crushing heat of summer, a war hero is being held prisoner in an abandoned barracks. In front of the door to his prison, a mangy dog barks night and day. Miles from where he is being held, in the French countryside, a young extraordinarily intelligent woman works the land, waiting and hoping. A judge whose principles have been sorely shaken by the war is traveling to an unknown location to sort out certain affairs of which it is better not to speak. Three characters. In their midst, a dog who holds the key both to their destinies and to this intriguing plot. Full of poetry and life, The Red Collar is at once a delightfully simple narrative about the human spirit and a profound work about loyalty and love.
