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

3 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 411 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 : magic and symbols by Geneviève Lacambre( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trained in Renaissance art traditions, Moreau helped to open the way for modern art, and was especially fascinating to the later Surrealists, themselves drunk on dreams. Genevieve Lacambre takes us into the heart of this man's unique creativity, exploring his life and artistic sources. More than 120 paintings, drawings, and watercolors and a wealth of documents, letters, and photographs illustrate the life and work of this singular artist."--Jacket
Gustave Moreau by Pierre-Louis Mathieu( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in French and English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moreau's life, although the painter himself did not believe so, casts a singular light on a work in which he was far more involved personally that he imagined: he is one of the forerunners and leading exponents of the symbolist trend that prevailed in the late nineteenth century. This movement actually defined itself by the projection onto the canvas of inner sentiments, often those of the artist himself, and which an accurate knowledge of his biography allows us to better understand, a century after his death, now that the restrictions he imposed on his first biographers have given way to time and that the private apartments conserved in the heart of his museum he had so carefully arranged for posterity have been opened to the public. It is now permitted and possible to present what is known and after all quite a lot is known about the life of the one who called himself the worker assembler of dreams."--Publisher description
