Court Culture in Dresden by Helen Watanabe-O'Kelly
Book DescriptionThis is the first cultural history of Baroque Dresden, the capital of Saxony and the most important Protestant territory in the Empire from the mid-sixteenth to the early eighteenth century. Helen Watanabe-O'Kelly shows how the art patronage of the Electors fits into the intellectual climate of the age and investigates its political and religious context. Lutheran church music and architecture, the influence of Italy, the cabinet of curiosities and the culture of collecting, alchemy, mining and early technology, official image-making and court theatre are some of the wealth of colourful subjects dealt with during the period 1553 to 1733.

Beauty or Beast?, Hardback (June 2010)
A regiment of women warriors strides across the battlefield of German culture - on the stage, in the opera house, on the page, in paintings and prints. This book examines representations of the transgressive figure of the woman warrior from Cranach's painting of Judith, to Schiller's Joan of Arc, Wagner's Brunnhilde, and Fritz Lang's Brunhild.
