Faust, a tragedy: by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

20 editions published between 1932 and 1980 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend. He is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, so he makes a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. Faust and the adjective Faustian imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term. The Faust of early books - as well as the ballads, dramas, movies, and puppet-plays which grew out of them - is irrevocably damned because he prefers human to divine knowledge; "he laid the Holy Scriptures behind the door and under the bench, refused to be called doctor of Theology, but preferred to be styled doctor of Medicine". Plays and comic puppet theatre loosely based on this legend were popular throughout Germany in the 16th century, often reducing Faust and Mephistopheles to figures of vulgar fun. The story was popularised in England by Christopher Marlowe, who gave it a classic treatment in his play, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus. In Goethe's reworking of the story two hundred years later, Faust becomes a dissatisfied intellectual who yearns for "more than earthly meat and drink" in his life. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)
Painting and the Journal of Eugène Delacroix by Michele Hannoosh( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Journal of Eugene Delacroix is one of the most important works in the literature of art history: the record of a life at once public and private, it is also one of the richest and most fascinating aesthetic documents of the nineteenth century, as Delacroix reflects throughout on the relations between the arts, especially painting and writing. Indeed, he approaches the question from a unique perspective, that of a painter who wrote extensively and theorized his own writing in the Journal, a painter who had a passion for literature and a powerful literary imagination, a narrative painter whose work is rooted in literature and the literary. This book is the first to explore the crucial importance of this relation for Delacroix's aesthetic theory and artistic practice. Countering the long critical tradition which sees his writing as the inverse of his painting, it argues that, through his diary and art criticism, he sought to develop a painter's writing, proper to painting itself, and that such a writing is closely related to his conception of pictorial art

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive introduction to and ... reappraisal of the life and works of one of the most influential artists of the nineteenth century. Delacroix was regarded from the outset of his career as the leader of the French Romantic school ... Lee considers Delacroix's life and art within the context of his fascinating and tumultuous age in the years following the French Revolution and the rise of the British Empire, analyzing and explaining his artistic processes. All [his] major works ... are illustrated generously and explored in depth"--Publisher's description
Delacroix by Arlette Sérullaz( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Delacroix drew incessantly throughout his life. The importance the artist attached to this aspect of his work is born out by the thousands of sheets that were dispersed at the time of the sale following his death. The Louvre collection, featuring over three thousand drawings owing particularly to the generosity of a great collector, Etienne Moreau-Nelaton, illustrates by itself the complexity of a versatile genius whose style evolved over the years toward an ever more intense lyricism and a clear synthesis of forms refashioned by his imagination. Whether he would call upon the inexhaustible "dictionary" nature offered him, draw from memory or sheer invention or again, as was often the case, respond to a literary text, Delacroix was a paradoxical draughtsman, heedful of tradition but constantly overstepping it. He made use of almost every graphic technique alternately or combined: charcoal, red chalk, pastel, graphite pencil, pen, watercolour or wash, carrying them to the height of achievement or even to their breaking point."--Jacket
