The Hare with Amber Eyes:  A Family's Century of Art and Loss, De Waal, Edmund
2 De Waal, Edmund The Hare with Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss
New York Picador 2010 0312569378 / 9780312569372 Paperback Good 
Edmund de Waal is a world-famous ceramicist. Having spent thirty years making beautiful pots? Which are then sold, collected, and handed on? He has a particular sense of the secret lives of objects. When he inherited a collection of 264 tiny Japanese wood and ivory carvings, called netsuke, he wanted to know who had touched and held them, and how the collection had managed to survive.

And so begins this extraordinarily moving memoir and detective story as de Waal discovers both the story of the netsuke and of his family, the Ephrussis, over five generations. A nineteenth-century banking dynasty in Paris and Vienna, the Ephrussis were as rich and respected as the Rothchilds. Yet by the end of the World War II, when the netsuke were hidden from the Nazis in Vienna, this collection of very small carvings was all that remained of their vast empire.

The Picasso Papers, Krauss, Rosalind E.
5 Krauss, Rosalind E. The Picasso Papers
New York Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1 1998 0374232091 / 9780374232092 Paperback Very Good 
Was Picasso a modern Midas who not only turned the trash of everyday life into the gold of Cubist collage but also gave new value to the work of Old Masters? Or was he a monster counterfeiter who mercilessly raided the styles of others? In The Picasso Papers, Rosalind Krauss suggests that the reason we still ask these questions is that modernism itself is a hall of mirrors in which "counterfeit" and "genuine" both reflect the same condition. Krauss brings Picasso's pastiche of other artists brilliantly into focus as the "sublimated" underbelly of Cubism, refashioned in the bright, clean style of Picasso's neoclassicism—a defense that is its own form of practicing the forbidden.
