Art of the Baltics: The Struggle for Freedom of Artistic Expression under the Soviets, 1945-1991 (Dodge Soviet Nonconformist Art Publication Series)
Art of the Baltics is the first major survey of the development of modernist art in Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia during the post-World War II Soviet period. The contributors discuss and reappraise the art of Baltic artists working in modernist styles. They argue that Estonian, Lithuanian, and Latvian art did not develop in similar ways. Estonia, for example, had closer contact with Scandinavian countries, while Lithuania clearly was part of Central Europe, and was more influenced by Poland.
This book contains nearly three hundred illustrations—many in color—that serve to visually compare the art of the three Baltic countries. It also has three useful historical timelines that contextualize the art presented. In addition to historical overviews of each country, Art of the Baltics contains essays on the art of the region, written by both Baltic and American scholars. The articles extensively cover the Baltic art of the 1960s through the 1980s, which reflect the Zimmerli Art Museum’s holdings of the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union. To round out the scope of this work, contributors also discuss the pre-Soviet art of the region, as well as the recent creative developments that resulted from these small countries gaining independence in 1991.
A Century of Professional Lithuanian Glass Art
The book introduces a research on Lithuanian professional glass art development, analysis of various glass works, and a presentation of the most famous Lithuanian glass artists’ creation starting with 1930s until nowadays. The situation of decorative art in interwar Lithuania was insufficiently favourable to glass art development, although in the second half of the 20th century Lithuanian glass art school has begun to form in the two major cities of Lithuania – Vilnius and Kaunas. A tradition of training stained-glass artists has developed in Vilnius, while in Kaunas glass art studios were established, where artists are still taught today. The emergence of professional academic school gradually expanded the circle of Lithuanian glass authors. The before mentioned processes are properly analyzed in the book. Moreover, the book also discusses the development of different types of glass objects. Quite late, in the end of the 20th century, a studio glass movement came to Lithuania. Afterwards, conceptual art was also introduced into Lithuanian glass, represented by the artists of young generation, who have graduated at the beginning of the 21st century.

The Art of Identity and Memory: Toward a Cultural History of the Two World Wars in Lithuania (Lithuanian Studies)
This evocative and wide-ranging set of articles is a forceful demonstration of how much the experience of East-Central and Eastern Europe, largely neglected until now, needs to be integrated into evolving scholarship on the era of the world wars. The collection diagnoses the challenge of achieving an enlarged historical and artistic perspective, and then goes on to meet it. Themes that are universal (exile, loss, trauma, survival, memory) and the undying subjects of art and artistic efforts at representation, here find specific expression. The case of Lithuania and its diverse populations is revealed in its full significance for a modern European history of the impact of the age of the world wars.

Sacred Art: Catholic Saints and Candomble Gods in Modern Brazil
Sacred art flourishes today in northeastern Brazil, where European and African religious traditions have intersected for centuries. Professional artists create images of both the Catholic saints and the African gods of Candomblé to meet the needs of a vast market of believers and art collectors.
Over the past decade, Henry Glassie and Pravina Shukla conducted intense research in the states of Bahia and Pernambuco, interviewing the artists at length, photographing their processes and products, attending Catholic and Candomblé services, and finally creating a comprehensive book, governed by a deep understanding of the artists themselves.
Beginning with Edival Rosas, who carves monumental baroque statues for churches, and ending with Francisco Santos, who paints images of the gods for Candomblé terreiros, the book displays the diversity of Brazilian artistic techniques and religious interpretations. Glassie and Shukla enhance their findings with comparisons from art and religion in the United States, Nigeria, Portugal, Turkey, India, Bangladesh, and Japan and gesture toward an encompassing theology of power and beauty that brings unity into the spiritual art of the world.
