Manet and the painters of contemporary life by Alan Krell( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet he did not ally himself with the other painters of contemporary life, the Impressionists, preferring to engage with a Realist tradition, and at the same time drawing on the art of the past - Raphael, Titian, Velazquez, Goya - to confront his own age. In this freshly researched study Alan Krell examines the artist's known intentions and the critical, sometimes bitterly hostile reception that he encountered

Manet's silence and the poetics of bouquets by James Henry Rubin( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sense of stillness and silence pervades Manet's painting. His flattened, sometimes fragmented forms appear to exist absentmindedly in a world removed from speech. It is this silence that James Rubin explores in a book that shows us Manet as we see him - naturally, in pictures that articulated their own purely visual terms. In such a sense, this book is about the restoration of the visual to its primacy in art through Manet's painting. While insisting that Manet's pictures must be given the first and final say in any interpretation, Rubin uses contradictory views of the painter's works - from the present and past - as a context for approaching them. Applying J.L. Austin's notion of the performative, which bridges the gap between language and action or between the painted image and its social effect, Rubin goes beyond past theorists to describe the curious ways in which Manet's paintings act upon us. With these ideas as his guide, he takes us through Manet's work, pointing out the elements that are distinctive and consistent, particularly the painter's reliance on a pattern of gazes and the "unique state of undecidability" that this strategy produces. Rubin also examines Manet's relationship to three of the leading critics of his day - Baudelaire, Zola, and Mallarme - giving special attention to Mallarme's appreciation, and eventual use in his own poetry, of the paradox between immersion and externality in Manet's oeuvre. Finally, the book uses the image of the bouquet to exemplify Manet's creative poetics through an exploration of his still life. Filled with revealing insights into Manet's achievement, this sensitive, informed, and clearly written book goes a long way toward explaining why Manet's paintings continue to fascinate and elude us more than one hundred years after the artist's death

Manet by Kathleen Adler( Book )

11 editions published in 1986 in 5 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his lifetime Édouard Manet (1832-83) insisted that his paintings were to be seen 'as a whole'. The major exhibitions of his work in Paris and New York in 1983 went some way towards achieving this aim, and the same intention lies behind Kathleen Adler's new monograph, for it is only when the paintings are juxtaposed that the artist's continuing preoccupations and explorations become apparent. There has been an upsurge of interest in Manet in recent years, and the recent scholarship which this has generated is duly appraised in Kathleen Adler's wide-ranging text. The major themes of Manet studies are fully discussed: his concern to express visually what Charles Baudelaire had termed 'the heroism of modern life'; his continual struggle for acceptance at the Paris Salons and his interest in other ways of exhibiting; his absorption and reinterpretation of the work of earlier artists; his experimentation with complex composition; and his attempts to engage the spectator as an active participant in his work. The views of critics of Manet's day and of our own are also considered and new propositions made for a better understanding of his intentions and of the measure of his success. The cleaning of many of the major paintings for the exhibitions was itself a major contribution to Manet studies, and the book's carefully selected colour plates allow readers to assess for themselves the tremendous impact paintings such as Olympia and A Bar at the Folies Bergére must have had on the visitors to the Paris Salons. They also demonstrate clearly why the artist's work continues to impress and challenge. -- Inside jacket flap

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manet and the American Civil War : the Battle of U.S.S. Kearsarge and C.S.S. Alabama by Juliet Wilson-Bareau( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most celebrated naval engagements of the American Civil War took place on June 19, 1864, when the United States warship Kearsarge sank the Confederate raider Alabama off the coast of Cherbourg, France. The Kearsarge later anchored off the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer where throngs of curious people flocked to see it, one of whom was the artist Édouard Manet (French, 1832{u2013}1883). Although he was not a witness to the battle, Manet painted the scene in an attempt to regain the respect of his colleagues after being ridiculed for his work in the 1864 Salon. Accompanying the Museum's exhibition, this publication takes a closer look at Manet's early experience of the sea, as well as provides a detailed narrative of the historic episode and the background of the two ships. In addition to Manet's paintings and watercolors, numerous prints, photographs, letters, and newspaper archives illuminate the stirring event. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website

Manet : initial M, hand and eye by James Henry Rubin( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An authoritative work on Edouard Manet, viewed by many as the father of modern painting. Few artists have created as much controversy as Manet: his avant-garde work not only challenged the traditions of art, but also addressed society as a whole. With his painting Olympia (1869), he was to become, to quote Degas, "as famous as Garibaldi." Yet how the diffident son of a bourgeois family became the father of both realism and impressionism is a complex story that has too often been overlooked. As Manet has rightly become recognized as a touchstone for historical change, his personal story has become all the more relevant to the study of art history."--Publisher description
