Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper -- Case Closed

From Publishers Weekly
"I knew the identity of a murderer and couldn't possibly avert my gaze," declares bestselling author and Virginia Institute of Forensic Science and Medicine chairman of the board Cornwell (The Last Precinct). Claiming to have cracked the unsolved case of Jack the Ripper, the author, combining superb investigative skills and meticulous research with modern technology, presents strong, albeit largely circumstantial, evidence as to the true culprit in this uncharacteristic work of nonfiction. Cornwell's man is the handsome, educated actor-cum-artist Walter Richard Sickert, and she delves into his life, probing the psychological pain and sexual deformity which led to his "impotent fury." Screen, stage and TV actress Burton's splendid, professional narration deserves much of the credit for the book's smooth...

The New York Times Book Review
"Bromberg's book is a comprehensive survey of one aspect of [Sickert's] appealing art."

Book Description

This catalogue raisonné brings together for the first time Sickert's 226 prints, many in rare or unique impressions, and discusses the artist's unorthodox techniques, the influences on his work, and the evolution of his printmaking career.

Sisley

From Publishers Weekly
Using unpublished letters and archival documents, Shone ( The Post-Impressionists ) sheds new light on impressionist painter Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) in this engrossing, meticulously researched critical biography. It illuminates the artist's personal estrangement from his English parents who settled in Paris and embraced French bourgeois life. The evidence suggests that the penurious painter was cut off financially by his father, who apparently died insane after suffering business reversals. Sisley emerges here as a resourceful, proud, solitary figure. Shone also provides valuable details on Sisley's genteel poverty, his relations with dealers and fellow impressionists and his secluded later years in northern France. One can follow the distinct phases of Sisley's style in the 130 high-quality color plates and 40...

Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) was a leading artist in what is often referred to as the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.
