Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stood serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence was damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity, and the means to administer the fatal poison. Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, only one man still presumed Elinor was innocent until proven guilty. Hercule Poirot was all that stood between Elinor and the gallows.…

Malvasia's life of Marcantonio Raimondi includes Malvasia's critical catalogue of prints by or after Bolognese artists, from Giulio Bonasone to Giovan Battista Pasqualini. A great connoisseur and avid collector of prints, Malvasia recognizes the intelligence and novelty inherent in Giorgio Vasari's life of Marcantonio with its list of prints produced by the Bolognese engraver. In republishing Vasari's life, Malvasia not only adds valuable new information, but also completes Vasari's list by cataloguing all the prints unnoticed by his Florentine predecessor. Aware of the interest of amateurs and collectors in identifying old and new prints, establishing their states, and building up an exhaustive collection, Malvasia undertakes the groundbreaking task of describing, one by one or by coherent series, the whole corpus of prints executed by or after Bolognese masters as far as he could determine. He describes the subjects of these works accurately, transcribes their inscriptions, specifies their techniques (whether engraving, etching, or woodcut), supplying their measurements in Bolognese once. In listing the works of Bonasone, the Carracci, Giovan Luigi Valesio, Guido Reni, and Simone Cantarini, among others, Malvasia often comments on their technical and aesthetic qualities, resorting to a refined and complex terminology that reveals his profound knowledge of printmaking. In her introductory essay, Naoko Takahate explains the historical significance of Malvasia's innovative production of the first extensive print catalogue, shedding new light on the unique context of Bolognese printmaking in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In her notes, Takahatake identifies over eight hundred prints mentioned by Malvasia, almost all of which are reproduced in color in a separate volume. Underscoring the importance of Malvasia's critical catalogue for amateurs and collectors, Carlo Alberto Girotto offers a critical edition of the annotations made by the French art theorist Roger de Piles to his own copy of the Felsina pittrice (now in the library of the Institut National d'Histoire de l'Art, Paris). At the end of the translation and notes, Lorenzo Pericolo publishes the sections of Malvasia's Scritti originali (Ms. B16, Biblioteca Comunale dell'Archiginnasio, Bologna) relating to Bonasone.

“Extraordinary for its craft and emotional effect . . . [Ethan Canin is] a writer of enormous talent and charm.” –The Washington Post “Character is destiny,” wrote Heraclitus–and in this collection of four unforgettable stories, we meet people struggling to understand themselves and the unexpected turns their lives have taken. In “Accountant,” a quintessential company man becomes obsessed with the phenomenal success of a reckless childhood friend. “Batorsag and Szerelem” tells the story of a boy’s fascination with the mysterious life and invented language of his brother, a math prodigy. In “City of Broken Hearts,” a divorced father tries to fathom the patterns of modern relationships. And in “The Palace Thief,” a history teacher at an exclusive boarding school reflects on the vicissitudes of a lifetime connection with a student scoundrel. A remarkable achievement by one of America’s finest writers, this brilliant volume reveals the moments of insight that illuminate everyday lives. “Captivating . . . a heartening tribute to the form . . . an exquisite performance.” –The Boston Sunday Globe “A model of wit, wisdom, and empathy. Chekhov would have appreciated its frank renderings and quirky ironies.” –Chicago Tribune

Technical research into tempera as an historical phenomenon The use of tempera paints in easel painting around 1900 has gradually evolved in recent years to become a field of art technological research in its own right at SIK-ISEA. It emerged that the usage of this extremely heterogeneous paint type was not confined to one region around 1900, but was popular all over Europe. Clearly, therefore, research needed to reflect this in a broad approach. In the autumn of 2010, SIK-ISEA worked with a London institution, Art Analysis and Research, to set up an international network of art technologists known as the "Tempera group." In the last four years, the group has investigated a number of hitherto unexplored aspects of "tempera" as a historical phenomenon, meeting regularly for colloquia. The findings of this joint research are now to be published as Volume 4 in SIK-ISEA's series KUNSTmaterial.
