POUSSIN,NICOLAS: THE MASTER OF COLOR
By Yuri Zolotov & Natalia Serebriannata
8 1/2 x 11 3/4 in. 192 pages. Hardcover. Over 150 reproductions. The fifteen paintings and forty-one drawings by the great French artist Nicolas Poussin featured in this volume are from the collections of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. All of the paintings arrived in Russia in the second half of the eighteenth century when Catherine the Great established the renowned Hermitage Picture Gallery, an art-filled salon dedicated to conversation and relaxation for the tsarina and her court. Each artwork is accompanied by descriptive text, critical analysis, and complete known provenance compiled by two of Russia's most-noted art historians. The paintings are reproduced in full-color, along with a number of details highlighting the most significant aspects of each composition.

DECORATIVE ARTIST, THE
By Yvonne Reese
8 1/2 x 1 in. 160 pages. Hardcover. Over 200 full-color illustrations. This useful and practical volume is designed for those who wish to give their homes a truly personal touch. The decorative skills explained and demonstrated in this book have been influenced by craftsmen of the past, including folk artists, housewives, canal boatmen, and others, who led busy lives and had no specific artistic training. With modern paints, the traditional techniques these people developed and mastered can be used to decorate any surface-including plaster, timber, metal, ceramics, glass, or fabric-with simple but charming and elegant motifs. After an introduction explaining basic skills and offering advice on preparing surfaces and choosing materials, instructions are given on the creation of an array of decorations using various designs. With easy-to-use patterns and step-by-step instructions and photographs, this book provides the ability to transform almost any object in the home into a thing of beauty that will be enjoyed and treasured for years to come.
