Though born into a fiercely traditional wine-growing family in the Bordeaux region of France, the author learned the meaning of independence at a tender age. Her mother, rebelling against the rigors of provincial life, left for Paris in search of a new career - and a divorce. Ilian's grandparents, not knowing quite what to do, placed her in a nearby convent. The nuns were kind, but as there were no other children her age, Ilian, then 4, spent her days playing by herself in the convent courtyard. Then life changed dramatically, when her mother re-married. Ilian's new step-father, a brilliant Hungarian-born intellectual, was to have a profound effect on her life. Together with her siblings, she began to experience the life of affluent Parisian society. Her parents were very much a part of the intellectual life of Montparnasse, while simultaneously creating a publishing empire. Unusual for those days, Ilian was sent for an interlude of schooling in England. Back in Paris, this protected teen-ager had only a brief time, however, before the war clouds began gathering over Europe. When the German invasion of France finally came, Ilian's step-father, Paul, having published derogatory material about the Nazi leadership, was high on the Gestapo list. It became urgent for the family to escape. They joined a massive exodus, on congested roads, toward the south of France, being strafed by Italian warplanes on the way. They succeeded in escaping from France with the help of a courageous American vice-consul in Marseille. In the U.S. Paul, with renewed energy, set up an office ce in New York and wrote a regular column for The Washington Post. During their flight from France, the family had become confirmed Gaullists. This was reflected in Paul's writing - and in Ilian's decision three years later (after she had graduated from Barnard College) to join the Free French Air Force. She became a liaison officer between the French Air Force and the U.S. First Tactical Air Force, headquartered in Vittel and later in Heidelberg. Before being de-commissioned, she was assigned to the French Air Mission in Washington, where she dated an American naval officer whom she would eventually marry. In these memoirs she tells also of other suitors who came and went. But somehow, during all of these personal dramas and the upheaval of a World War, she and her contemporaries retained a quality of "innocence" which protected them throughout.

When Jeffrey Lawler inherits a pair of masterworks by two famous European painters, he discovers unexplained gaps in their records of prior ownership. Determined to find the reason, he decides to investigate. He draws up a list of art dealers and gallery owners through whom the artworks may have passed. But just as he is getting closer to solving the mystery, he is killed by a hit-and-run driver—and the list turns up missing. Anxious to avenge Jeffrey’s death, his beautiful widow, Rebecca, enlists the help of two experts, Georges Lartigue, a provenance specialist from Paris, and David Neville, an old friend and former lover. The trail leads them from the port of Balboa to the art galleries in Madrid, through the salons of Lisbon and Paris, to the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. There Georges finds the key to the missing piece in the puzzle, but not before Rebecca suddenly realizes that the same people who killed her husband have targeted her for death too.

Acquired in avarice, hidden in lies. . . What happens when a Leonardo da Vinci canvas, lost for centuries, mysteriously appears in a New York City gallery and becomes the center of controversy among New York’s elite? With echoes of "The Da Vinci Code" and "I Bought Andy Warhol", "Provenance" is an art history suspense novel that follows Sam Driscoll, an art expert and advisor to the massively wealthy and powerful, as he navigates a world where huge egos clash and everyone is looking for the next big deal. His journey takes the reader behind the scenes of auction houses, elegant parties, and on a quest to the Italian countryside, doggedly pursuing the truth through the murky story of how this painting surfaced in New York City---and whether it really is a Leonardo at all. Greed, power, deceit, and crime nearly eclipse the beauty and magnitude of this rare painting. Ultimately, Sam must decide whether to stay in the game of buying and selling art for millions of dollars, or go against his clients’ wishes and fight for the integrity of this work of art, its original owners, and its fate to the end---wherever that may take him.

The World Wide Web is now deeply intertwined with our lives, and has become a catalyst for a data deluge, making vast amounts of data available online, at a click of a button. With Web 2.0, users are no longer passive consumers, but active publishers and curators of data. Hence, from science to food manufacturing, from data journalism to personal well-being, from social media to art, there is a strong interest in provenance, a description of what influenced an artifact, a data set, a document, a blog, or any resource on the Web and beyond. Provenance is a crucial piece of information that can help a consumer make a judgment as to whether something can be trusted. Provenance is no longer seen as a curiosity in art circles, but it is regarded as pragmatically, ethically, and methodologically crucial for our day-to-day data manipulation and curation activities on the Web. Following the recent publication of the PROV standard for provenance on the Web, which the two authors actively help shape in the Provenance Working Group at the World Wide Web Consortium, this Synthesis lecture is a hands-on introduction to PROV aimed at Web and linked data professionals. By means of recipes, illustrations, a website at www.provbook.org, and tools, it guides practitioners through a variety of issues related to provenance: how to generate provenance, publish it on the Web, make it discoverable, and how to utilize it. Equipped with this knowledge, practictioners will be in a position to develop novel applications that can bring open-ness, trust, and accountability.

A lute of exquisite workmanship and beauty is crafted in Italy in the dark age of the mid 15th century by a master luthier, Francesco Ippolito da Cremona the Renaissance musician fated to play it to great acclaim, the bulk of his musical legacy composed upon it. But this lute is more than mere musical instrument; it is a memorial to love lost in a brutal tragedy. By the passion invested in it by its maker, and its embodiment of the relics of tormented love, it is imbued with the power to enchant, its enchantment released by the hands of its destined player. Against the evidence of history, the lute survives to the present day and along with a rare manuscript of Francesco Ippolito lute tablature, falls into the hands of Bob Roberts, an incurably romantic middle-class professional whose escape from a deeply unromantic life is to immerse himself in the lute music of the Renaissance. The lute is an unexceptional wreck when Bob acquires it, but he commissions its restoration and gradually its provenance is unveiled, the final revelation astonishing. The lute and Ippolito’s music exert a powerful influence upon Bob’s life that hints of deep unrest and a vague connection with lives long gone, as if lute and tablature combine in a conduit through which spiritual energy moves from past to present. This is a story of music across the ages, of obsession and betrayal, of destiny and, above all, of true love.
