Gustave Moreau, the watercolors by Pierre-Louis Mathieu( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty-four plates of excellent quality, 40 in color and 8 of these enlarged a bit beyond the original, reproduce a sampling of the 400 or so little-known watercolors by the Symbolist Moreau (1826-98). An expert on the artist, Mathieu here writes for the casual reader, covering mostly generalities in a two-chapter essay and so-so commentaries on the plates. Themes include Moreau's relation to Romanticism, Symbolism, poetry, and the erotic. Mathieu, who inscrutably confuses any implied chronology with several early dated works placed at the end of the book, finally agrees that Moreau developed his own nonfigurative style prior to Kandinsky's first abstract watercolor. One wishes this book were better organized and less repetitious, and that it spoke in more detail of the works themselves. For large collections. Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Art Dept., Goucher College, Md.

"Gustave Moreau was one of the most influential painters of the 19th century, yet he is little known today. Teacher of Henri Matisse and Georges Rouault, he created a world of glittering, bejeweled illusion and mystery in his art. His complex, decorative style united a passion for mythology and mysticism with exquisite craftsmanship, and inspired a generation of Symbolist painters, poets, and writers, among them Proust, Mallarme, and the English Pre-Raphaelites. In his elusive, shadowed universe, compounded of dreams, memories, fragments of poetry, and ancient myths, Salome dances, Oedipus confronts the Sphinx, and Orpheus, master of music, sets his lyre singing

La Sulamite dévoilée : genèse du Cantique des Cantiques de Gustave Moreau by Gustave Moreau( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue de l'exposition présentée au Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon du 15 octobre 2011 au 16 janvier 2012. Commandé en 1852 à Gustave Moreau, la Sulamite dévoilée fut exposé au salon de 1853 aux côtés des Baigneuses de Courbet et du Tépidarium de son ami Chassériau dont l'influence est manifeste dans cette oeuvre. Moreau a réalisé de très nombreuses études préparatoires - gouaches, huiles, aquarelles, dessins au crayon - conservées pour la plupart au musée Gustave Moreau à Paris, dans une filiation encore très proche de ses maîtres romantiques. L'artiste puise son inspiration dans l'un des fameux livres de la bible, Le Cantique des Cantiques suite de poèmes et de chants d'amour, dont la Sulamite est l'héroine. Accompagnant l'exposition, l'ouvrage présente ce chef-d'oeuvre de jeunesse de Gustave Moreau en le resituant par rapport à l'héritage romantique de Chassériau et en explorant la vision de l'Orient de Moreau et de ses contemporains
