Art in Paris, 1845-1862 by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and Undetermined and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume are assembled all of Baudelaire's important accounts of art-exhibitions held in Paris between 1845 and 1862 : the three Salons, of which we wrote extended reviews; the Exposition Universalle, on which only three of a projected set of articles were written and published, owing to some kind of dispute with his editor - the first of these however contains a major statement of his critical method; a special exhibition held at the Bazar Bonne-Nouvelle in 1846, which gave him the opportunity to expound his views on David and his School; and the article 'Painters and Etchers', of 1862, which includes the only reference to Manet published by Baudelaire, as well as an enthusiastic welcome to Whistler. Taken together with it's companion-volume, The Painter of Modern Life (Phaidon, 1964), Art in Paris 1845-1862 covers the whole of Baudelaire's preoccupation with the visual arts of his time. His greatness as a power has long been acknowledged in this country. His rights to the title of 'first aesthetician of his age', which has often been accorded him, are now available for our consideration
Memoirs of the life of John Constable, composed chiefly of his letters by Charles Robert Leslie( Book )

20 editions published between 1951 and 1995 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C.R. Leslie's memoir of his friend John Constable was first published in 1843 (with an expanded second edition in 1845) and has remained the standard biography of Constable ever since. The book is chiefly compiled from Constable's own correspondence and conversation; indeed its great authority arises from the fact that the story is told almost throughout in the subject's own words. Constable wrote as he painted, with an acute and serious eye on the subject, and with a spontaneous presentation of imagery; he also showed over and over again a robust wit and a taste for gossip. Leslie's memoir is thus still valuable on two counts: it is a classic biography, in which the author's warm and engaging personality is portrayed as freshly as on the first day of publication, and it is a art-historical source-book for the life and opinions of England's greatest landscape painter. This edition contains Leslie's complete and unabridged text. The preface and explanatory notes are by Jonathan Mayne, who also selected and annotated the 72 illustrations

Art in Paris, 1845-1862 : salons and other exhibitions by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

29 editions published between 1965 and 1981 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Charles Baudelaire, one of the greatest French poets of the nineteenth century, has been described as "the father of modern art criticism." Rejecting a cold, mathematical, heartless approach, Baudelaire demanded instead a criticism that was "partial, passionate and political" and, he added, "amusing and poetic." His starting point was always the shock of pleasure experienced on the first visual encounter with a work of art. Eloquent, original, his writing conveys the excitement of personal involvement. This new paperback version of the highly praised earlier edition contains Baudelaire's accounts of the art exhibitions held in Paris between 1845 and 1862. There are extended reviews of the Salons of 1845, 1846, and 1859; three articles on the Exposition Universelle of 1855 (the first containing a major statement of Baudelaire's critical method); an essay on the special exhibition held at the Bazar Bonne-Nouvelle in 1846, in which Baudelaire gives his views on David and his School; and the article "Painters and Etchers" of 1862, which includes Baudelaire's only published reference to Manet and an enthusiastic welcome to Whistler. Jonathan Mayne's translation captures all the artist's spontaneity, and Mayne's extensive notes will help English-speaking readers to discover for themselves the ideas and insights of Baudelaire."--Amazon
