AMSHEWITZ, SARAH BRIANA
The Paintings of J.H. Amshewitz R.B. A.
(London: B. T. Batsford, 1951). . 4to; original red cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; printed dustwrapper with pictorial onlay to upper panel; pp. xiv + 66; plates, some of which in colour.

Good condition. "The numerous colour and black and white illustrations to this book give a representative selection from Amshewitz's life work. Ten of the plates are in full colour and there are more than 80 monochrome reproductions of murals, portraits, drawings, water-colours and paintings. These reproductions form a particularly impressive record of Amshewitz's work in South Africa, an aspect of his oeuvre which is comparatively little known in England. The text, by the painter's wife, gives an intimate and fascinating account of J. H. Amshewitz's life, his struggles and successes, and his many friends. The whole book will provide a valued record of Amshewitz's work for the many admirers of his art.".

ARNOLD, MARION
Irma Stern: A Feast for the Eye
(Cape Town: Rembrandt van Rijn Art Foundation, in association with Fernwood Press, 1995) 0620190140. . 4to; original grey boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 156; lavishly illustrated with examples of the artist's work, some photographs of Stern and her studio. Dustwrapper ever so slightly rubbed, with trace of crease to lower panel; a little spotting to top edge; faint foxing to endpapers. Very good condition. "Irma Stern, a major South African artist, is a woman whose personality, life and work cannot easily be separated. In this lavishly illustrated volume, Dr Marion Arnold explores Stern's fifty-year career and evaluates its significance... Controversial in her lifetime, Stern is one of the most interesting South African painters to consider from a late twentieth-century perspective. Her extensive oeuvre encapsulates the white South African dilemma of acknowledging a European cultural heritage and an African environment. She saw Africa through a lens of expectation and romanticized the people and places she encountered in her extensive travels... Stern's paintings offer a feast for the eye in their luxuriant colour and energetic brushwork. They also speak eloquently of an artistic quest for connections between the self and an external world shaped by the artist's restless wanderings in both Africa and Europe. Irma Stern: A Feast for the Eye is a glowing tribute to a great artist. Here, beautifully reproduced, are familiar paintings, as well as less well-known ones from private collections, which have not been seen publicly.".

BRETT, MICHAEL (TEXT), AND WERNER FORMAN (PHOTOGRAPHS)
The Moors. Islam in the West
(London: Orbis Publishing, 1980) 0856132799. . 4to; original black boards, lettered in gilt on spine; price-clipped laminated pictorial dustwrapper; endpaper map; pp. 128, incl. index; lavishly illustrated in full colour.

For over five hundred years Islam was to remain a dominating force in the Iberian peninsula as well as North Africa... The author's insight into the workings of the Arab mind and the complexity of Muslim society is complemented by the evocative photography of Werner Forman which perfectly captures the beauty of the landscape as well as the magnificence of the Moorish artistic legacy.".
