"The international award-winning, bestselling phenomenon, now available in English for the first time. Tomorrow, the sun will rise for the first time in 40 days. Thirty minutes of daylight will herald the end of the polar night in Kautokeino, a small village in northern Norway, home to the indigenous Sami people. But in the last hours of darkness, a precious artifact is stolen: an ancient Sami drum. The most important piece in the museum's collection, it was due to go on tour with a UN exhibition in a few short weeks. Hours later, a man is murdered. Mattis, one of the last Sami reindeer herders, is found dead in his gumpy. Are the two crimes connected? In a town fraught with tension--between the indigenous Samis fighting to keep their culture alive, the ultra-Lutheran Scandinavian colonists concerned with propagating their own religion, and the greedy geologists eager to mine the region's ore deposits--it falls to two local police officers to solve the crimes. Klemet Nango, an experienced Sami officer, and Nina Nansen, his much younger partner from the south of Norway, must find the perpetrators before it's too late ... THIS EDITION INCLUDES A READING GROUP GUIDE"--

Berthe Morisot by Jean Dominique Rey( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berthe Morisot was Fragonard's descendant, Corot's student, Manet's model. But above all, Morisot was the foremost female painter of the impressionist movement and, to quote Apollinaire, "one of the most complete artists of her day." While she belongs to the finest tradition of French oil painting, her pastels are as brilliant as those of her friend Degas and her delicate watercolors are undisputed masterpieces. This book showcases the life and works of the influential artist, focusing on the key stages of her career, from her role in the "realist" avant-garde to the advent of impressionism, to the birth of her only child, Julie, who would quite literally grow up under her mother's paintbrush. An anthology of citations from the writers in her entourage--including Stéphane Mallarmé and Paul Valéry--as well as personal correspondence between Morisot and other important artists of the late nineteenth century provide further insight into a unique talent and a fascinating period in the history of art

Matisse : the books by Louise Rogers Lalaurie( Book )

13 editions published in 2020 in English and Italian and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lavish book is the first full treatment of the stunning artist books created by Henri Matisse in the mid-20th century. Matisse would select a text (or texts) by an author he admired and create an entire production of visual art around it. Matisse created books around the work of French poets like Baudelaire, Mallarmé, and Ronsard. He made a fascinating edition of the French version of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnets from the Portuguese. And then there was his radically modern book-so popular in the US-that visualized the themes and patterns of American Jazz (Jazz, 1941-47)."
