From Pissarro to Picasso : color etching in France : works from the Bibliothèque nationale and the Zimmerli Art Museum by Phillip Dennis Cate( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Color etching flowered in France in the years 1885 to 1910, breaking the centuries-long tradition of artistic printmaking as an exclusively black and white medium. Its development was encouraged primarily by a renewed interest in eighteenth-century printmaking techniques and by the discovery of Japanese woodblock prints whose methods of composition and juxtaposition of unmixed areas of color demonstrated the dramatic and highly decorative effects that could be achieved by the superimposition of colored inked plates on a single sheet of paper. Although color etching began as an art form restricted to a small circle of artists working in Paris who were attracted to its intimacy and technical demands, its great aesthetic potential spawned a movement of considerable consequence by the turn of the century, especially for the circle of young, avant-garde artists including Jacques Villon, Joaquin Sunyer, Francis Jourdain, and Theophile Steinlen, who gathered around the master printmaker Eugene Delatre in Montmartre during the 1890s. By depicting life in the streets, cabarets and cafes of Paris, these artists fully exploited the creative possibilities of the color etching technique, producing subtly colored prints that were charged with atmosphere. Through a selection of works drawn from the collections in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris and the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University. Phillip Dennis Cate and Marianne Grivel explore the origin and expansion of color etching in France, tracing its development within the nineteenth-century renaissance of printmaking in France and analyze its aesthetic evolution in relation to major artistic movements such as Impressionism and Symbolism. Extensive artists' biographies and a complete list of the works of art illustrated make this an essential study for collectors, students, and for all those interested in late nineteenth-century French art

Atget Paris by Eugène Atget( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1897 until his death in 1927 Atget was photographer of Paris par excellence. This book brings together 840 of his images arranged district by district, neighborhood by neighborhood-it is the most prolific collection of his work ever published. To turn the pages is to take an unforgettable stroll through the eerie, empty streets of Paris 70 years ago. It is a strange, largely unpeopled world where objects project an uncanny density: shoes dangling in a shop window, or the milk cart laden with cans and equipped with whip and reins but no driver. This is Atget's Paris and in typical Atget style those humans that do appear are the humble tradespeople, the ragpickers, the prostitutes. Although hailed by the surrealists for the poetic quality of his images, Atget refused to accept that he was an artist, claiming that the pictures he took were simply documents. He has become known as the first modern photographer and had the unique ability to inject a tragic quality into ordinary things. As a special tribute this book has been formatted in the shape of a Parisian cobblestone."--Amazon
