This book marks a new, original and authoritative re-examination of a major turning point in late twentieth-century art.

991. Gibbons, Joan.
Contemporary art and memory. London ; New York : I. B. Tauris, 2007.
This is the first accessible survey book to explore the subject of memory as it appears in multiple guises in contemporary art.

994. Peill, James.
The English country house. London: Thomas & Hudson, 2013.
This beautifully illustrated book showcases ten outstanding British country houses all still in the hands of descendents of the original owners. James Peill recounts the ups and downs of such deep-rooted clans as the Cracrofts, landowners in Lincolnshire since the twelfth century, whose late 18th-century Hackthorn Hall is a perfect example of the kind of house Jane Austen describes in her novels (indeed, she appears on their family tree), as well as the relatively newly arrived Biddulphs, who constructed Rodmarton, an Arts & Crafts masterpiece, in the first decades of the last century.
995. Campbell, James W. P.
The Library. London : Thames & Hudson, 2013.
This spectacular book is the first single volume to tell the story of the library as a distinct building type, all around the world. Throughout the ages, book collections have served to symbolize their owners culture and learning, and the wealthy and powerful have spent lavishly on buildings to house them. In its highest form the library became a total work of art, combining painting, sculpture, furniture and architecture into seamless, dramatic spaces. The finest libraries are repositories not just of books, but of learning, creativity and contemplation; they embody some of the highest achievements of humankind. This book recounts that history in text and images of truly outstanding quality.

998. Бергер, Джоню
Искусство видеть. Санкт-Петербург : Клаудберри, 2012
На примере общеизвестных произведений изобразительного искусства и типичных рекламных изображений Бергер показывает, что наряду с непосредственным сообщением практически каждая картина, каждый визуальный объект массовой культуры несет в себе идеологический заряд. Книга состоит из семи эссе, из которых четыре посвящены отдельным аспектам оригинальной бергерской концепции, а три представляют собой подборки изображений без комментариев, цель которых - заострить внимание читателя на затрагиваемых проблемах. Based on the BBC television series, John Berger's Ways of Seeing is a unique look at the way we view art, published as part of the Penguin on Design series in Penguin Modern Classics.
