Cabinets of curiosities by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

39 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this erudite survey Patrick Mauries traces the amazing history of these 'rooms of wonders'. Not many survive, though there are pictorial records. But their contents still exist and are among the treasures of museums all over the world." "Once the concern only of scholars and art-historians, the cabinet of curiosities has, since the Surrealists, undergone an astonishing revival as an object of aesthetic pleasure, as well as emerging as a source of inspiration for interior decorators and contemporary artists." "This is one of those rare books that rescues a visually exciting but apparently abstruse subject from the distant past and shows its considerable resonant power to interest, excite and move us today."--Jacket

Jewelry by Chanel by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

31 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores one of the many sides of Coco Chanel, a creature of contrasts whose legacy continues to intrigue her admirers. There was the Chanel of the most sumptuous baroque, of dazzling, playful, unrestrained jewelry, of diamonds and emeralds shimmering like stars, and there was the Chanel of the tailored suit and the little black dress, of the severe cut, the strand of pearls, of classicism à la française. Out of this dialogue between hyperbole and understatement, and in counterpoint to the costume jewelry that she gave to the world, she created jewelry that was unparalleled in its insistence on luxury and refinement and unfettered in its imagination. Her jewelry presents one of the least known aspects of her work. With more than 120 illustrations and based on archival research and interviews with Chanel's colleagues and other witnesses to her life and career.--From publisher description

Jean Cocteau by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtuoso of the word and the drawn line, Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) did not reduce art to an aesthetic, but raised living to the level of art. Influenced by forces as diverse as surrealism, psychoanalysis, cubism, Catholicism, and opium, Cocteau made his name in poetry, fiction, film, ballet, painting, theater, and opera. Patrick Mauriès gives us an intimate look into the life of this prince of poets revealing the unique magic that inhabits each of his creations. A wave of the magic wand, and books are written, films are made, plays are acted, and the pen draws

Shellshock : conchological curiosities by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the wittiest and most artful decorative creations of all have been crafted from nature's miniature masterpiece: the shell. Its myriad forms and colours display a beauty and an intricacy that defy the mind and hand of man. Now Patrick Mauries takes us through the history of man's delight in and decorative use of the shell. From ancient times, the shell has been the focus of fantasy and fascination, playing a significant role in myth and religion. Gradually, as the age of exploration brought ever more exotic examples to European shores, it became an object of curiosity and ornament. Cabinets of rarities gave pride of place to conchological collections; fine books were filled with exquisite engravings of every type of mollusc; grottoes and architectural interiors encrusted with products of the sea became the rage; and finally the shell motif was carried into every branch of decoration and design. From Rococo and Rocaille, through Victorian kitsch to 20th-century refinement, in paintings and porcelain, furniture and fashion, the shell is everywhere. Contemporary artists have "rediscovered" the shell, exploiting its elegance, its variety, its patterns and its polish, to delight and surprise in sometimes unexpected ways
