Cézanne by Paul Cézanne( Book )

The veneration surrounding the French painter Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) for nearly a century has, paradoxically, contributed to the mystery of his genius. His work has been extensively analyzed, but in fundamental respects it remains incompletely understood. As such it is ripe for the reexamination provided by this volume, published on the centenary of the artist's first one-man exhibition, which was mounted in Paris by Ambroise Vollard. More than 240 large colorplates, illuminated by thoughtful commentaries, and 262 black-and-white illustrations of paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sketchbook pages represent all aspects of Cezanne's oeuvre. The book traces the full range of his stylistic evolution: dark and violent canvases of his early period, luminous works in which he came to grips with Impressionism, and the paintings of his maturity that broke entirely new ground. Also explored here is the artist's preoccupation with several themes and motifs - Mont Sainte-Victoire, bathers, and still lifes. Unprecedented in the literature on Cezanne is this volume's comprehensive review of the critical response that the artist's work has evoked, both in his lifetime and afterward. Francoise Cachin, Director of the Musees de France, discusses the years from 1865 to the artist's death in 1906, and Joseph J. Rishel, Curator of European Painting before 1900 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, writes on the years from 1907 to the present. Their extensive quotations from newspaper reviews, monographs, and journal articles by writers from Emile Zola to Meyer Schapiro offer readers the means to evaluate for themselves the many contradictory interpretations of Cezanne's legacy that have been put forth over the last century. Representing the latest scholarship on Cezanne, the book provides a concordance to the numbering system of John Rewald's forthcoming catalogue raisonne of the paintings. Cezanne also includes the painter's own statements about art and other artists, a fully documented, illustrated chronology by Isabelle Cahn, and an annotated glossary of the collectors who acquired the work of Cezanne, prepared by Walter Feilchenfeldt

Arts of the 19th century by William Vaughan( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revolution and profusion -- these are the hallmarks of Western art from 1780 to 1850. The astonishingly rapid changes wrought by the industrial -- and American and French -- revolutions led to a wealth of artistic production. This profusely illustrated guide to the arts of the early 19th century on both sides of the Atlantic is the most comprehensive volume available on the subject. Through both famous and obscure works, William Vaughan explores a stunning variety of artistic achievement, including landscape, still life, and figure painting by Gericault, Ingres, Delacroix, Turner, Blake, Constable, Goya, and Friedrich. Vaughan also treats sculpture, architecture, town planning, and photography, and offers an in-depth survey of the decorative arts: furniture, ceramics, glass, metalwork, and more. Drawing on the most up-to-date research, the author brings this exciting period and its inexhaustible artistic production to life

Gauguin by Françoise Cachin( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this illustrated volume, Francoise Cachin traces the evolution of Gauguin's theories on art and the technique of painting step by step, from his earliest days as a self-taught Sunday painter to his last masterpieces painted in the South Seas, underlining their importance for the development of modern art. She places the artist's work in the context of his life, quoting from his copious correspondence and other writings to show how his painting was affected by what was going on around him - from the artistic and intellectual effervescence of his contemporaries to his personal tragedies. Analyses of the works that marked important stages in the progress of Gauguin's art complement the main text." "This study of Gauguin's life-long search for the primitive, which led him from Brittany to the Marquesas Islands, recounts his break with the Impressionists, which was a profession of faith in the pre-eminence of intellectual associations in art over to the passive receptivity of the eye, his involvement with the Neo-Impressionists, the development of Cloisonnism, which resulted in Gauguin's treatment of forms in flat areas of colour, his associations with the young Symbolist writers of the day, and finally his rejection of any intellectual influence whatsoever at the end of his life. His source of inspiration in other painters (Degas, Cezanne, Puvis de Chavannes) and other cultures (Egyptian, pre-Colombian, Japanese) is carefully traced and copiously illustrated."--Jacket
