As Above, So Below, an exhibition of recent work by Scherer & Ouporov at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University, offers an intimate look at their compelling art. Borrowing its title from an ancient dictum that describes in part a mirroring of macrocosms with in the microscopic, the exhibition and accompanying catalogue address the many dichotomies that take form, and are dispelled, within the artists' work. Since meeting at the Surikov Moscow State Academic Art Institute in 1989, Suzanne Scherer and Pavel Ouporov have worked together as a team in the production of their diverse art.

The Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky Collections
480 pages, illustrated
Edited by Renee Price
9 1/2 x 11 1/2 in.
This publication accompanies the exhibition Gustav Klimt: The Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky Collections, which presents paintings and drawings from the collections of the co-founders of Neue Galerie New York. Together, these collections comprise the finest gathering of works by Klimt in the United States.
Essays examine Klimt's earliest patrons; his studios; the role of photography in his erotic work; profiles of the most important women in Klimt's life; his relationship with Gustav Mahler and Auguste Rodin; his never-before-published 1917 notebook; and an interview by Neue Galerie director Renee Price with Maria Altmann, heir to the five Klimt paintings stolen by the Nazis that were recently returned to her by the Austrian government. This lavish volume on Klimt's life and art also includes an exploration of the influence Klimt has had on popular culture.
