  • Chagall: A Biography


    Wullschlager explores in detail Chagall’s complex relationship with Russia and makes clear the Russian dimension he brought to Western modernism. She shows how, as André Breton put it, “under his sole impulse, metaphor made its triumphal entry into modern painting,” and helped shape the new surrealist movement. As art critic of the Financial Times, she provides a breadth of knowledge on Chagall’s work, and at the same time as an experienced biographer she brings Chagall the man fully to life—ambitious, charming, suspicious, funny, contradictory, dependent, but above all obsessively determined to produce art of singular beauty and emotional depth.

  • Das Bauhaus verfehlen / Missing the Bauhaus.


    It is 2022, just over a century since the founding of arguably the world’s most widely celebrated art and design school. In 2019, on the occasion of the Bauhaus’ centenary, the world’s media focused on the various ‘legacies’ of this school. Such retrospective appraisals of Bauhaus moment(s), movement(s) and model(s) demonstrate that the school has certainly not gone missing. Using the notion of verfehlen/missing as a point of departure, these time-travelling and varied contributions from the Global South posit different ways in which the word missing may be applied to the Bauhaus: Contributors from arts, architecture and design backgrounds raise and critique a range of problematic aspects attached to a nostalgic position of longing for the Bauhaus and reveal numerous instances of how the school’s mythologised model, freighted with Western confidence and hardheadedness, often simply misses, and continues to miss the point.

  • Fallen Idols : Twelve Statues That Made History


    Statues are one of the most visible – and controversial – forms of historical storytelling. The stories we tell about history are vital to how we, as societies, understand our past and create our future. So whose stories do we tell? Who or what defines us? What if we don’t all agree? How is history made, and why?  FALLEN IDOLS looks at twelve statues in modern history. It looks at why they were put up; the stories they were supposed to tell; why those stories were challenged; and how they came down. History is not erased when statues are pulled down. If anything, it is made.

  • Flemish Paintings


    This is a catalogue of Flemish paintings housed in South African public collections. It offers a unique and interesting account of the many important paintings overlooked in international scholarship through lack of exposure

    Prof Bernadette Van Haute is Professor in Art History at the University of South Africa in the Department of Art and Music.
    She studied Ethnic Art in Belgium and wrote her Master’s dissertation on selected art of Central Africa. After moving to South Africa in 1983, she redirected her research interest to Flemish Art of the 17th century. Her Doctoral thesis focused on a monograph and catalogue raisonné of the Flemish artist David III Ryckaert (2000, Turnhout: Brepols).
    Because of the early Dutch presence in South Africa, she researched 17th century Flemish paintings in public collections in South Africa. This study project culminated in the richly illustrated book of Flemish Paintings (2006, Pretoria: Unisa Press).
    Prof Van Haute joined Unisa in 1983 in the then Department of History of Art and Fine Arts. She was Chief Editor of the accredited journal de arte from 1996 to 2017.

  • Glitter and Doom: German Portraits from the 1920s


    In the 1920s Germany was in the grip of social and political turmoil: its citizens were disillusioned by defeat in World War I, the failure of revolution, the disintegration of their social system, and inflation of rampant proportions. Curiously, as this important book shows, these years of upheaval were also a time of creative ferment and innovative accomplishment in literature, theater, film, and art.
