The Season's Outstanding Art Books By turns awkward and graceful, these images dodge nostalgia but not the aching pleasure found in, among other things, the clotted light of a bunch of buttercups.

The comprehensive book is special because it includes many color reproductions of paintings otherwise seen only in black-and-white (and small) in the artist's catalogue raisonne from 2001. The spare elegance of the realist Fairfield Porter (1907-1975) never gets old. A monograph on the artist and his work, recently published by Rizzoli, provides an intense exploration of the intriguing and complex life of this important painter.
