Beauty and Art by Elizabeth Prettejohn
Book DescriptionWhat do we mean when we call a work of art 'beautiful'? How have artists responded to changing notions of the beautiful? Which works of art have been called beautiful, and why? Fundamental and intriguing questions to artists and art lovers, but ones that are all too often ignored in discussions of art today. Prettejohn argues that we simply cannot afford to ignore these questions. Charting over two hundred years of western art, she illuminates the vital relationship between our changing notions of beauty and specific works of art, from the works of Kauffman to Whistler, Ingres to Rossetti, Cezanne to Jackson Pollock, and concludes with a challenging question for the future: why should we care about beauty in the twenty-first century?

Pater the Classicist, Hardback (March 2017)
Pater the Classicist is the first book to address in detail Walter Pater's important contribution to the study of classical antiquity. The contributions presented here discuss his classicism generally, his fiction set in classical antiquity, his writings on Greek art and culture, and those on ancient philosophy.
Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Hardback (October 2016)
This important re-evaluation of the Dutch- born painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema traces his personal and artistic journey towards international fame and success in London and investigates how this exceptionally creative artist used his own houses and studios as laboratories to produce vivid paintings of life in ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt.
Modernity of Ancient Sculpture, Paperback (July 2012)» View all books by Elizabeth Prettejohn
What can modern art have to do with ancient sculpture? Surely the excitement of modern art lies in its repudiation of classical example? Elizabeth Prettejohn's important and revisionist new book argues otherwise: that ancient sculpture and modern art have been in constant dialogue since Johann Joachim Winckelmann invented art history.
