The Visualization of a Nation

release date: Aug 30, 2021
The Visualization of a Nation
On 23 March 1981, Jordi Pujol, President of the Catalan regional government, gave a speech about an art exhibition, Catalunya Avui. Embracing the artistic wealth of Catalonia, Pujol reminded the audience that when they hear of Tàpies, Miró, Dalí, and even Picasso they ought to remember their Catalan heritage. Pujol''s inclusion of Antoni Tàpies (1923-2012) in this company shows the mark Tàpies had already made as a celebrated artist. In a very different Presidential address, as Artur Mas spoke to the press about the 2014 independence referendum, Tàpies''s enormous painting Les quatre cròniques (1990) loomed in the background - an image that took on new meanings under very different sociopolitical circumstances. In this fascinating and thought-provoking investigation, Emily Jenkins explores both Tàpies''s extraordinary style and his journey through Catalonia''s turbulent modern history. Despite his complex relationship with the Spanish state, and having shown bold acts of political protest through his art, Tàpies has been fêted as one of Spain''s most successful modern artists. With support from both local and regional governments, the artist opened a museum dedicated to his work in Barcelona in 1990, helping to establish Tàpies as a major visual artist in a resurgent Catalonia. Emily Jenkins studied art history at Rhodes College and history at Universidad de Santiago de Compostela. She is now an independent scholar in Cantabria.

All-of-a-Kind Family Hanukkah
The beloved characters from Sydney Taylor''s All-of-a-Kind Family return in this heartwarming picture book from the acclaimed author and Caldecott Award-winning artist. A Kirkus Reviews best book of the year that is perfect for Hanukkah gift-giving! "Share this joyous holiday tale of a Jewish immigrant family all year long." -- Kirkus Review, starred review The beloved All-of-a-Kind Family comes to life in a new format perfect for younger readers. Join the five sisters back in 1912, on the Lower East Side of NYC, and watch as preparations for Hanukkah are made. When Gertie, the youngest, is not allowed to help prepare latkes, she throws a tantrum. Banished to the girls'' bedroom, she can still hear the sounds and smell the smells of a family getting ready to celebrate. But when Papa comes home she is given the best job of all: lighting the first candle on the menorah. First published in 1951, Taylor''s chapter books have become time-honored favorites, selling over a million copies and touching generations of readers. In this time when immigrants often do not feel accepted, the All-of-a-Kind Family gives a heartwarming glimpse of a Jewish immigrant family and their customs that is as relevant--and necessary--today as when it was first written. Jenkins and Zelinsky''s charming compliment to Taylor''s series perfectly captures the warmth and family values that made the original titles classics.
