William Merritt Chase: Portraits in oil

The great American artist William Merritt Chase (1849–1916) completed a wide variety of portraits over his long career. Among his subjects were presidents, businessmen, celebrities, New York luminaries, and members of his family as well as a number of self-portraits. Chase’s ability to capture a likeness was renowned, yet it was his dashing and bravura brushwork that truly set his portraits apart. This highly anticipated book presents the entire collection of Chase’s known portraits in oil. Each is gorgeously reproduced, and many are published in color for the first time. This is the second of four volumes cataloguing the complete works of William Merritt Chase. The catalogue raisonné project has presented immense challenges, for Chase kept no records at all, and staggering numbers of forgeries of his work appeared soon after he died. Finding many of his portraits was especially difficult, as no log book of sitters has been located and no other records exist for those works that were not publicly exhibited. Nevertheless, Ronald G. Pisano’s meticulous research has uncovered more than six hundred portraits in private and public collections. Among the most notable are Chase’s penetrating portrait of James Abbott McNeill Whistler (The Metropolitan Museum of Art), a commanding portrait of Dora Wheeler (Cleveland Museum of Art), The Feather Fan featuring Chase’s oldest daughter, Alice (Musée d’Orsay, Paris), and a 1908 self-portrait (Uffizi Gallery, Florence).

El autor de La materia oscura reinterpreta la historia más influyente de todos los tiempos y construye una versión ingeniosa y polémica de la vida de Jesús. «Esta es la historia de Jesús y su hermano Cristo, de cómo nacieron, de cómo vivieron y de cómo murió uno de ellos. La muerte del otro no forma parte de esta historia.» Así comienza esta novela ingeniosa y polémica que revisita la historia más influyente de todos los tiempos: la vida de Jesús. Todo comienza cuando la virgen María da a luz a gemelos a los que llama Jesús y Cristo. Los hermanos son muy diferentes entre sí. Mientras que Jesús es carismático, predica la compasión incondicional y condena la hipocresía religiosa, Cristo es un intelectual apocado pero con una determinación: hacer que la palabra de su hermano pase a la historia. El buen Jesús y Cristo el malvado plantea interrogantes al lector que siguen resonando mucho después de su lectura y reflexiona acerca de cómo la verdad se convierte en historia. La crítica ha dicho... «Narrado en una prosa sencilla y sin artificios y, sin embargo, hermosamente eficaz.» Sunday Times «Uno de los mejores escritores británicos de su generación.» Newsweek «A partir de estos dos personajes en conflicto -una especie de Jekyll y Hyde galileos-, Pullman reinterpreta y reconstruye provocativamente (los cristianos ya hablan de blasfemia) el más importante texto de referencia de la cristiandad.» Manuel Rodríguez Rivero, El País
