The books that shaped art history : from Gombrich and Greenberg to Alpers and Krauss. - London : Thames & Hudson, 2013.
Written by some of today’s leading art historians and curators, this new collection provides an invaluable road map of the field by comparing and reexamining canonical works of art history. From Émile Mâle’s magisterial study of thirteenth-century French art, first published in 1898, to Hans Belting’s provocative Likeness and Presence: A History of the Image before the Era of Art, the book provides a concise and insightful overview of the history of art, told through its most enduring literature. Each of the essays looks at the impact of a single major book of art history, mapping the intellectual development of the writer under review, setting out the premises and argument of the book, considering its position within the broader field of art history, and analyzing its significance in the context of both its initial reception and its afterlife. An introduction by John-Paul Stonard explores how art history has been forged by outstanding contributions to scholarship, and by the dialogues and ruptures between them.

Stairs. - Barcelona : Monsa, 2011.
The stairs are usually loaded with symbolism, and the fact that they are seen as a child while necessary, should not hamper the idea that they are elements that can show something more than just functional mechanism inherent in its use, should represent the expressiveness of the dialogue established between adjacent spaces and strengthen the concept of transition element that stands out for being different or that is integrated to be equal.

Goya : order & disorder. - Boston : Boston Museum of Fine Arts, 2014.
Francisco Goya has been widely celebrated as the most important Spanish artist of the late-eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the last of the old masters and the first of the moderns, and an astute observer of the human condition in all its complexity. The many-layered and shifting meanings of his work have made him one of the most studied artists in the world. Few, however, have made the ambitious attempt to explore his work as a painter, printmaker and draftsman across media and the timeline of his life. This book does just that, presenting a comprehensive and integrated view of Goya's most important paintings, prints, and drawings through the themes and imagery that continually challenged or preoccupied the artist. They reveal how he strove relentlessly to understand and describe human behavior and emotional states, even at their most orderly or disorderly extremes, in elegant and incisive portraits, dramatic and monumental history paintings, and series of prints and drawings of a satirical, disturbing and surreal nature. Derived from the research for the largest Goya art exhibition in North America in a quarter-century, this book takes a fresh look at one of the greatest artists in history by examining the fertile territory between the two poles that defined the range of his boundlessly creative personality.

Gustave Dore (1832-1883) : master of imagination. - Paris : Paris Musée d'Orsay Flammarion, 2014.
The diverse oeuvre of Gustave Doré—illustrations, paintings, sculpture—combines with biography and critical essays and attests to the artist’s enduring impact on contemporary culture. Proclaimed "the most illustrious of illustrators," Gustave Doré is best known for his engravings, which appeared in editions of the Bible, Dante’s Inferno, Poe’s The Raven, The Adventures of Don Quixote, and even in Hollywood, from King Kong to Seven. Yet the extent of his genius remains largely unknown. Here, along with his renowned illustrations, his paintings and sculptures are also examined, bringing to light the rich diversity of his talent. Using watercolor, vivid oil paint, or sculpture, he demonstrated mastery in a vast scope of media, and in treatments ranging from monumental historical tableaux to landscapes to modest compositions. His work transcended techniques and eras, covering an inexhaustible range of subjects from Europe to the United States to Russia and revealing his insatiable curiosity.

Российская архитектура : на краю. - Москва : Журнал "Архитектурный Вестник", 2015.
Постоянное слежение за архитектурным процессом, выявление возникающих трендов, встраивание их в широкую геополитическую / геоэкономическую / геокультурную перспективу позволило автору выйти на высший уровень научно-теоретического знания, а именно — прогнозирование и конструирование будущего. Д.Фесенко ставит вопрос об очертаниях и особенностях архитектурного ландшафта в послекризисную эпоху, образ которой будет решительно отличаться от мира, к которому мы привыкли. И предлагает свой опыт, в том числе вполне формализованный, сведенный в табличную форму и принимающий графический вид, относительно будущего российской архитектуры и градостроительства.

Vitruvius Scoticus : plans, elevations, and sections of public buildings, noblemen's and gentlemen's houses in Scotland . - Originally published: Edinburgh: A. & C. Black, 1812. - Mineola, N.Y. : Dover Publications, 2011.
This classic portfolio uses elevations, floor plans, and other line drawings by Scotland's first great classical architect to document the high Scottish style of the eighteenth century. It was assembled by William Adam (1689–1748), whose sons were the developers of the "Adam style," and published posthumously in 1812. The elder Adam designed, extended, and remodeled numerous country homes and undertook many public contracts. Vitruvius Scoticus's 160 plates include 100 of his own designs.
Unlike the Vitruvius Britannicus books, this volume features plans for many smaller buildings that served as models for American builders and architects of the nineteenth century. Its engravings include images of such stately homes as Mavisbank House, Haddo House, and Fasque House; Hamilton Palace, one of the nation's grandest homes, and Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the monarch in Scotland; and a series of bridges at Inveraray in the county of Argyll. Never before available in an affordable edition, this volume is an essential reference for architectural historians and students. It includes an Introduction and Notes to the Plates by James Simpson.
