Art Nouveau Bing : Paris style 1900 by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

14 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The literature on Art Nouveau is extensive but little mention has been made of the man who created the name, Siegfried Bing, a leading figure in fin de siecle decorative arts and a moving force in the style that swept through Western Europe and the United States. Weisberg, along with SITES, has produced a visually delightful, detailed tribute to this elusive but effective artist-entrepreneur. The catalog traces Bing's life, involvement in Japanese arts, the creation of the gallery "L'Art Nouveau" and the atelier that flourished under his supervision. It was a union of art and industry aimed at design reform with an international style and no distinction between major or minor, fine or applied arts. Useful for art libraries."--Metropolitan Museum Library staff

The European realist tradition by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

12 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibition of 250 paintings and drawings by 70 artists recreates a panorama of l9th-century French society--a faithful rendition of daily events, of human lives and environment. Dr. Gabriel P. Weisberg, Curator of Art History and Education at The Cleveland Museum of Art and Curator of the Exhibition, based his study and comparison of the distinctive qualities of Realism on the categories used by 19th-century art critics and the Salon juries: genre, still life, portrait, and landscape. The organization of this encyclopedic exhibition was an awesome task. Much of the material was passed down through the painters' families and subsequently hidden or lost. The work that had been collected by museums and private collectors was among the least studied of all the artistic traditions of 19th-century France. The work of numerous neglected painters is compared to the work of well-known masters as a means of assessing the range and depth of the Realist tradition during this period. Artists represented include Edgar Degas, Jean Francois Millet, and Gustave Courbet together with such rediscovered figures as Victor Gabriel Gilbert, François Bonvin, and Norbert Goeneutte
Japonisme comes to America : the Japanese impact on the graphic arts, 1876-1925 by Julia Meech( Book )

18 editions published in 1990 in English and Japanese and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japonisme in American Graphic Art, 1880-1920 explores the myriad manifestations of Japonisme in a selection of rarely seen American works on paper from the Brooklyn Museum's permanent collection. Concurrent with the so-called "Japan craze" in America was a renewed interest in graphic arts: as watercolor, pastel, etching, and other graphic media came to be appreciated for their artistry and expressivity, they also reflected the impact of Japanese art. Color woodcuts by late-eighteenth- and nineteenth-century masters such Hiroshige, Hokusai, and Kuniyoshi were avidly collected in the West and served as particularly influential models of stylistic and technical innovation for American artists. Inspired by their encounters with the arts of Japan, the artists featured in Japonisme in American Graphic Art, 1880-1920 adopted Japanese subjects and design elements, embraced Eastern aesthetic principles, and sometimes even traveled to Japan to study its cultural traditions firsthand. Their resulting works demonstrate the variety and breadth of Japanese influence on American graphic arts at the turn of the twentieth century
Overcoming all obstacles : the women of the Académie Julian by N.Y.) Dahesh Museum of Art (New York( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Academie Julian is the first book to examine late nineteenth-century Paris's most famous training ground for the leading women artists of the period. The Academie Julian was founded in Paris in 1868, initially to prepare students for entry to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the nineteenth century's preeminent art school. Because women could not study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts until 1897, Julian itself became an international equivalent for many of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century's most important women artists." "Not only does Overcoming All Obstacles introduce the reader to many works by women artists - both famous and lesser known - but the essays offer a cultural and historical context in which to appreciate their art."--Jacket
The origins of l'art nouveau : the Bing empire by The origins of L'Art Nouveau( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was on 26 December 1895 that art dealer Siegfried Bing (1838-1905) opened the doors of his Paris shop L'Art Nouveau. This long-awaited event represented the birth of a new movement in art." "The Origins of L'Art Nouveau is more than a monograph on Siegfried Bing, his shop and his national and international influence. It also analyses the development of Art Nouveau, and explores the fusion of applied and fine art into an all-embracing new stylistic form. Numerous previously unpublished photographs and works of art further elucidate the narrative."--Jacket
Chardin and the still-life tradition in France by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

10 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The popularization of images : visual culture under the July Monarchy( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The portentous, eighteen-year period (1830-1848) in the history of French revolutions known as the July Monarchy was circumscribed by the rule of Louis Philippe d'Orleans and was characterized by the political and social ascendancy of the bourgeoisie. Accompanying this brief and transitional stage was a phenomenal increase in printed media, especially in all forms of culture with a visual component. The nine essays that constitute this collection, gathered from social historians and art historians, address the formation and consequences of the emergence of a popular culture. They significantly reframe the mental picture of the July Monarchy, calling into account traditional ideas of social order during this formative period of demographic change. While the expanded availability of images and words, together with an elevated literacy rate, enhanced political awareness among lower classes, the rule of Louis Philippe inaugurated hegemonic social agendas. This was the period that saw the rise of class consciousness, the concept of "dangerous" classes, police surveillance, and the identification of "criminal" types. The pandemic medium of caricature was at once a vehicle for critiquing government and social mores and an effective tool for determining and controlling class distinctions

Against the modern : Dagnan-Bouveret and the transformation of the academic tradition by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pascal-Adolphe-Jean-Dagnan-Bouveret (1852-1929) was among a group of the most creative students of Jean-Leon Gerome, the leading French academic painter of his day. A well-established naturalist painter and an artist acknowledged worldwide during the latter half of the nineteenth century, Dagnan-Bouveret used contemporary themes and techniques to modernized the academic tradition in an attempt to meet the aesthetic changes initiated by the impressionists. Displaying real diversity, he created photographically accurate compositions inspired by daily life. His best-known pieces were mesmerizing mystical-religious compositions. Accolades at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle and induction into the French Institute not only assured the status of his work, but also furthered his position as the upholder of the academic tradition at a time when it was coming under renewed attack by the modernists." "The exhibition at the Dahesh Museum that the publication of this book celebrates is the first in a century to feature Dagnan Bouveret's work. Against the Modern pays special attention to the evolution of this artist's style and subject matter and brings to the public gaze the real diversity, accessibility - and surprising modernity - that has made Dagnan-Bouveret worthy of our attention today."--Jacket
