The setting of a Roman gallery brings together four characters in van Eyck's The Virgin of Chancellor Rolin. Nicolas Rolin, the Duke of Burgundy's minister of finance, is on his knees before the Madonna, who is being crowned by an angel. Rolin is being blessed by the infant Jesus. Outside, a rich landscape is peopled with a number of unknown characters. The work is analyzed as a complex painting, difficult to decipher
Lascaux, préhistoire de l'art : Grotte de Lascaux, Dordogne, France, (vers 18000 avant le présent)( Visual )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and French and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the world's most fascinating museums is by far one of the oldest. But can the paintings there really be called art? This program goes inside the Lascaux cave complex to examine the richest and most beautiful collection of Paleolithic cave drawings in France. Who were the artisans who rendered those arresting images, and how exactly did they do it? Different theories are presented as the cameras capture a site that never ceases to amaze and intrigue
Memory of Arcady : Pastoral concert (c.1510) : Tiziano Vecellio called Titian (Pieve di Cadore, c.1488-Venice, 1576) : the Louvre Museum, Paris( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giorgione or Titian? The identity of the artist who painted one of the world's most famous paintings, Le Concert champetre, remains uncertain to this day. What does this pastoral scene represent? Why do two nude women appear next to two clothed men? What music are they playing? This program attempts to answer these and other questions by delving into 16th-century Venetian culture, and by examining its more recent counterparts, such as Manet's Partie de campagne
The texture of light : the astronomer (1668) : Johannes Vermeer, Delft 1632-1675 : Louvre Museum, Paris( Visual )

5 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vermeer, born in 1632, lived in Delft all of his life and was influenced by Rembrandt. His work consisted of a series of variations on enigmatic interiors. Only 34 of his paintings are known to exist. In this program, video graphics are used to focus on the key elements of The Astronomer for the purpose of analyzing its structure and composition
Dream of the diagonal : the flagellation of Christ : Piero della Francesca, Borgo San Sepolcor ca. 1420-1492 : Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Urbino( Visual )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Flagellation is considered one of the most mysterious paintings in the history of art. Although approximately thirty hypotheses have been formulated to try to explain its political meaning, the painting by this scholarly Renaissance artist defies all attempts. This program makes one more attempt, and reveals its overall identity as a manifesto of a new school of art and Renaissance thought
Pictures beneath the cobblestones : July 28, 1830, Liberty leading the people (1830) : Eugène Delacroix (Charenton 1798-Paris 1863) : the Louvre Museum, Paris( Visual )

4 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alain Jaubert flushes out the details, interprets the symbols, and analyzes the composition of Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People. Why such polemics when the painting was unveiled in 1831? Was it the nudity of the armed woman? Or was it the triumphant people in this realistic setting? Since the painting did not come to the Louvre until well after Delacroix's death, we will never know for certain. But this program makes some educated guesses from a firm, artistic standpoint
The mirror of paradoxes : self-portraits : Rembrandt van Rijn, 1606-1669 : the Louvre Museum, Paris( Visual )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even in his first paintings, Rembrandt positioned himself in the scene. In the following years, at least 100 times he used his face as the only subject in engravings, drawings, and paintings. Such single-mindedness, unique in the history of art, was very widely interpreted. This program explores his self-portraits and attempts to determine the secret meanings hidden in the various versions of Rembrandt's face
Spiral time : Nude descending a staircase (1912) ; Marcel Duchamp (Blainville 1887 - Neuilly sun Seine 1968), Philadelphia Museum of Art.( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase is, with Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon, an essential step in the 20th-century artistic revolution. But in spite of its worldwide reputation, the painting has never been commented on in-depth. This program is the first to completely dedicate itself to Duchamp's masterpiece. It asks what exactly the painting represents, and to what extent it is possible to analyze the work and dissect its symbolism
The colors of passion : Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) : The Crucifixion (February 7, 1930), Picasso Museum, Paris( Visual )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crucifixion is a rather surprising painting coming from Picasso, a man who had little interest in religion or religious themes. This program explores the reasons why he might have placed a number of strange, indecipherable figures within this classical representation of Calvary. Many allusions found in the work's enigmatic composition seem to indicate that the painting may have been created during a personal crisis
La gloire de la chair : portraits d'Hélène Fourment : Pierre-Paul Rubens (Siegen, 1577-Anvers, 1640)( Visual )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and French and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At age 53, Rubens married the young Helene Fourment, who had already served as the model for several of his works. In the two paintings at the Louvre, she appears in superb apparel, which suggestively hides the splendor of her voluptuous figure. This program examines two portraits of Helene Fourment, and projects from the two paintings what the others, the nudes which she destroyed, might have looked like
A fin de siěcle legend : decoration of the booth of La Goulue (1895), Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (Albi 1864-Malromé 1901), Museum d'Orsay, Paris( Visual )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Goulue, the celebrated can-can dancer, asked Toulouse-Lautrec to paint two panels to decorate her carnival booth. These canvases, Décoration pour la baraque de La Goulue, are the subject of this film
The smile and the interweave : Saint Anne, the Virgin and the infant Jesus : circa 1500-1515 : Leonardo da Vinci (Vinci 1452 - Amboise 1519)( Visual )

3 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo da Vinci began his career around 1472 in Florence as a portrait painter. This program examines ten elements in da Vinci's The Virgin, the Infant Jesus, and Saint Anne: darkness and light, volume and color, figure and setting, distance, proximity, movement, and rest. In this painting, Saint Anne wears her hair braided. Her eyes are lowered and she is smiling. On her knees, the Virgin Mary is shown in a low-neck dress, leaning toward the infant Jesus. The program refers to the first sketches of this painting to explore its hidden meanings

La naissance de l'impressionnisme Manet, Monet, Renoir( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1er film: "Une femme nue couchée sur un lit. Le sujet appartient depuis fort longtemps à l'histoire de la peinture. Et pourtant Olympia provoque un violent scandale au Salon de 1865. Cette femme impudique qui regarde le spectateur droit dans les yeux ne correspond à aucun des canons classiques. Manet, déjà célèbre pour Déjeuner sur l'herbe, présenté au 'Salon des refusés' deux ans plus tôt, devient le héros de la jeune génération qui inventera l'impressionnisme."--Verso du conteneur
Du romantisme au réalisme Delacroix, Ingres, Courbet( Visual )

3 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1er film: "Le 26 juillet 1830, Charles X suspend la liberté de la presse et dissout la Chambre. Trois journées d'émeutes s'ensuivent. Eugène Delacroix assiste aux combats et s'inspire des 'Trois glorieuses' pour réaliser 'La liberté guidant le peuple'. L'oeuvre choque et suscite une vive polémique. Alain Jaubert débusque les détails, interprète les symboles, analyse la composition du tableau. Des informations précieuses qui permettent de donner son sens à l'oeuvre et d'en apprécier toute la beauté."--Verso du conteneur
Le Grand siècle français La Tour, Le Lorrain, Poussin by Alain Jaubert( Visual )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Tour, 'Le dessous des cartes'. Trois cartes en main, de l'or, nous sommes au milieu d'une partie de prime, un ancêtre du poker. Restée dans l'ombre pendant plus de deux siècles, l'œuvre de Georges de La Tour fut longtemps attribuée à d'autres. C'est en 1915, grâce à un critique allemand, que l'on découvrit réellement le peintre. Si certains croient que 'Le tricheur' est un faux, c'est peut-être parce qu'il s'agit d'une image improbable, excessive. Trop de couleur, trop de lumière, trop de romanesque !" - "Le Lorrain, 'Les théâtres du soleil'. Un port éclairé par le soleil couchant dans une ville de style italien. Couleurs, espacement des objets, éclairage rasant et perspectives des architectures, tout concourt à produire une puissante illusion de profondeur. Claude Gellée, dit Le Lorrain, peignait en superposant de nombreux glacis jusqu'à l'obtention de tons pâles ou opalescents caractéristiques de l'éclairage crépusculaire." - "Poussin, 'Admirable tremblement du temps'. Au cours de ses dernières années à Rome, Nicolas Poussin exécute pour le duc de Richelieu quatre tableaux évoquant les saisons. Considérée comme le testament pictural du peintre, cette série est l'aboutissement d'un art techniquement maîtrisé, véritable synthèse de tous les éléments du style tardif de l'artiste, mais où pointent les symptômes de l'âge et de la maladie, visibles dans la touche tremblée et minuscule."

Les grands modernes Bonnard, Matisse, Picasso by Alain Jaubert( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1er film: "Derrière une fenêtre, un paysage de la Côte d'Azur. En peignant ce qu'il voit depuis son atelier, Pierre Bonnard compose entre 1939 et 1946, une image d'une apparente simplicité. Mais le découpage de l'espace, la gymnastique du regard à laquelle le peintre force le spectateur, les indices déposés ça et là, l'étonnante gamme des couleurs, conduisent à lire dans ce tableau tout un scénario secret et surprenant."--Verso du conteneur
