Nicolas Poussin, 1594-1665 by Richard Verdi( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) was the greatest French painter of the 17th century, and one of the greatest painters of all time. His profound understanding of the art of antiquity and of the Italian Renaissance led him to create works of such sophistication, clarity and discipline that they remained the model for all classicising artists up to Cezanne and even into our own century. Although Poussin's subject-matter was largely religious and mythological, Richard Verdi shows in his illuminating introductory essay that it derived from themes and preoccupations that were intensely personal in origin. At the same time, Poussin's study of the countryside around Rome laid the foundations for landscape paintings of heroic grandeur and lyrical beauty. This catalogue accompanies the first comprehensive exhibition of Poussin's paintings in Britain, staged to mark the 400th anniversary of the artist's birth. Some ninety paintings have been assembled from public and private collections throughout the world for an exhibition of the highest scholarly importance, as well as one of great popular appeal. The works have been selected by Pierre Rosenberg, Director of the Louvre, who contributes a distinguished essay to this catalogue, and by Neil MacGregor, Director of the National Gallery in London. This lavish and beautifully illustrated volume encompasses much recent research on Poussin, and as such will be of vital interest to art historians. It also explores and clarifies an art that is fundamental to the Western classical tradition, and presents it in all its splendour. As a study of the artist and the genesis of his major works, it is unlikely to be superseded for some time
Poussin and nature : arcadian visions by Pierre Rosenberg( Book )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French master Nicolas Poussin (15941665) painted some of the most influential landscapes in Western art, endowing them with a poetic quality that has been admired by artists as different as John Constable, J.M.W. Turner, and Paul Cezanne. This volume is the first in-depth examination of the landscapes in Poussins work. The artists pictorial imagination and intelligence are affirmed in 45 canvases, ranging from early Venetian-inspired pastorals to grandly structured scenes in which the artist meditated upon nature, its transformations, and its renewals. Nearly 50 of the artists drawings provide fascinating insight into Poussins thematic interests and working methods. Essays by internationally renowned scholars, including Museum curator Keith Christiansen, examine the visual, literary, and philosophical influences on Poussin as well as his relationships with his patrons and his place in the art-historical canon. Comparative paintings, drawings, and engravings by Poussin and others illuminate the essays, and a detailed catalogue of 113 of Poussins works explore questions of authorship, dating, interpretation, and execution, often righting earlier mistakes and raising new questions. This groundbreaking book gives the fullest possible representation of Poussin as a painter of landscapes, and provides a unique occasion to explore the personal side of this great artists creative achievement. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website

Watteau : the drawings by Pierre Rosenberg( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antoine Watteau (1684 1721) produced some of the most seductive drawings in Western art. This book, published to accompany an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, reproduces his finest examples, revealing the delicacy and freedom of execution that so impressed early commentators and had such a profound effect on subsequent generations of artists, notably François Boucher and Jean Honore; Fragonard. Well known art historians Pierre Rosenberg and Louis Antoine Prat examine these masterly studies, focusing on the artist's development as a draftsman, the techniques that he perfected, and the fascinating role that drawing played in his work. The illustrations, which include recently discovered works, are superbly reproduced

Only in America : one hundred paintings in American museums unmatched in European collections by Pierre Rosenberg( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gathers together 100 paintings from every school from the 1400s to the early 1900s selected by the prominent art historian, ex-Director and current President of the Muse;e du Louvre, Pierre Rosenberg. American museums often have a work in their collections that has no equivalent in any European museum except in its country of origin. Rosenberg's selection of paintings is a personal, subjective and passionate one. In certain cases, his choice upholds that which is already time-honored and universally celebrated, and in others it draws attention to an exceptional work by an artist who is not. The author justifies his choices in the notes accompanying each of the paintings presented. As well as providing name of artist, title of work, dimensions and date, he addresses the provenance and conditions of its purchase and of its entry into the museum concerned. Quite apart from a selection that may prove debatable, this book aims to stimulate thought on the part of those who believe in the museum's dual function--educational and contemplative--and those who are inebriated by the scent of museums
