Matisse : a second life by Henri Matisse( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue devoted to Matisse's late work--a period he described as his 'second life'--sheds exceptional new light on the artist through his correspondence with the writer André Rouveyre. Beginning with Matisse's serious operation in 1941 and ending with his death in 1954, these last years saw an extraordinary blossoming of his art. His correspondence with André Rouveyre--a novelist and artist dreaded for his cruel portraits, who was also Matisse's old friend from their student days at Gustave Moreau's studio--testifies almost daily to this autumn triumph. The voluminous written exchange (nearly 1,200 letters, many of which are covered with drawings or decorations by the artist), with its wealth of fertile observation, offers a unique look at Matisse's creative process and aspirations during a period when he was redefining his modes of artistic expression. For the first time, this catalogue, like the exhibition it accompanies, relates a selection of these letters and their drawings to works produced during the same years: oils on canvas, drawings, illustrated books along with their studies, tapestries, stained-glass window maquettes, preparatory studies for the wall decorations of the chapel at Vence and a number of dazzling large and small paper cut outs, representing the culmination of a half-century's work and Matisse's radical creative renewal.--Book jacket
Arcimboldo : 1526-1593 by Musée national du Luxembourg (France)( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in 5 languages and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous all over the world for his portraits (illustrated composites of plants, fruit, and animals combined to create the illusion of a human form) Arcimboldo still remains, paradoxically, a painter shrouded in mystery. This important monograph reveals the eclecticism of one of the most fertile and lively minds of the Mannerist period, placing him in the cultural context in which he lived and worked. Admired during his life, Arcimboldo fell into oblivion after his death in 1593. His original, eccentric works have been little understood, but were rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century by the Surrealists, who considered him a precursor of Modern art. His work has enjoyed a particular revival of interest again over the last twenty years. In addition to the artist's anamorphic portraits, this volume includes an important selection of Arcimboldo's paintings (many previously unpublished), tapestries, drawings, and illustrations created throughout his life, from his training in Lombardy to his time at the Hapsburg court. This volume will enable readers to discover and appreciate the scope of the great Arcimboldo's extraordinary work. - Publisher

Cézanne and Paris by Paul Cézanne( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A native of Aix-en-Provence by birth, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) went to Paris for the first time in 1861, at the insistence of his childhood friend Émile Zola. Cézanne decided to become a painter, against his family's advice, determined to make his mark on the Parisian scene that was then intrinsic to any successful artistic career. Paradoxically, Cézanne did not use Paris as a theme for his paintings: he did not represent its streets, its monuments, life in the area, or the great urban transformations taking place, unlike many of his contemporaries, including Caillebotte, Guillaumin, and Pissarro. So was the painter indifferent to this city? Throughout his life, he would make over twenty return trips to Paris from Aix, without ever setting down in the capital, even though some of his stays there were lengthy. So what was Cézanne looking for in Paris? What kind of influence did the capital have on his painting? He had contacts with artistic and intellectual circles that were liberal in both thought and lifestyle, and was he determined at all costs to resist their temptation? Was he drawn by the city's vibrant creative buzz, seeing it as something essential to the development of his art? From a range of viewpoints and using extensive illustrations, this book explores these questions by following the painter's career in Paris and the surrounding area, as well as the motifs he used and pictorial choices he made."--Jacket

Fantin-Latour : à fleur de peau by Henri Fantin-Latour( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Célèbre dans l'histoire de l'art pour ses somptueuses natures mortes et pour les portraits de figures illustres de son temps (Manet, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Verlaine ...), Henri Fantin-Latour est un artiste complexe, profondément indépendant dans un siècle marqué par les aventures collectives. Son oeuvre multiple, qui s'articule durant un demi-siècle entre portraits, natures mortes et compositions d'imagination, reste à la fois synonyme de classicisme et de modernité. Guidé par une conception très élevée de sa mission d'artiste, Fantin se dérobe à toutes les étiquettes: venu à la peinture sous la bannière réaliste, il apparaît comme le dernier des romantiques pour les uns, le premier des symbolistes pour les autres. Dans tous les cas, un artiste intense et délicat cachant sous les glacis d'une peinture austère une sensibilité à fleur de peau
Fragonard amoureux : galant et libertin by Jean-Honoré Fragonard( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Selon l'un de ses premiers biographes, le peintre Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806) "s'adonna au genre érotique dans lequel il réussit parfaitement". Artiste éminent de la scène parisienne de la seconde moitié du XVIIIe siècle, Fragonard aborda tous les genres avec bonheur, mais on a très vite considéré que la thématique amoureuse tenait une importance particulière dans son oeuvre. Sa production dans cette veine a souvent été réduite à la formidable énergie sensuelle de ses oeuvres licencieuses des années 1765-1775. Dès le XIXe siècle, Jules Renouvier rapportait en effet cette formule caractéristique du peintre qui "disait dans un langage qu'on doit lui laisser sans périphrase parce qu'il est de lui "je peindrais avec mon cul"". Mais l'inspiration amoureuse qui parcourt l'oeuvre protéiforme et généreuse du "divin Frago" apparaît infiniment plus riche et subtile. Alors que les Lumières accordent une place nouvelle aux sens et à la subjectivité et que le jeune genre romanesque en plein essor (entre Crébillon, Rousseau et Choderlos de Laclos) place l'amour au coeur des fictions, Fragonard va décliner sur sa toile ou sous ses crayons les mille variations du sentiment à l'unisson de son époque. C'est son parcours que l'on va suivre entre les derniers feux de l'amour galant et le triomphe du libertinage jusqu'à l'essor d'un amour sincère et sensible, déjà "romantique"."--Page 4 of cover

Rubens : portraits princiers by Peter Paul Rubens( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rubens was, no doubt a little in spite of himself, an immense court portraitist. If he wanted first to paint great historical subjects, he excelled in the field of the ceremonial portrait, visiting the most brilliant courts of Europe. Prized for his erudition and conversation, he also played an important diplomatic role, enjoying an unparalleled social position among the artists of his time. Around the portraits of Philip IV, Louis XIII or Marie de Medici made by Rubens and some famous contemporaries (Pourbus, Champaigne, Velázquez, Van Dyck ...), the exhibition plunges the visitor into a palatial atmosphere at the heart of the diplomatic intrigues of Seventeenth century.--Musée du Luxembourg
