Van Gogh and Gauguin : the studio of the south by Douglas W Druick ( Book )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and German and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The friendship of Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin - including an intense, two-month collaboration in Aries, in the south of France - is one of the most revealing and dynamic relationships in the history of modern art. When they first met in Paris in late 1887, they were two of a number of artists seeking a way to move beyond impressionism. They found common ground in the belief that progressive art should be created at a distance from urban decadence, a conviction that led Gauguin to Brittany and van Gogh to Aries in the early months of 1888." "Published on the occasion of a landmark exhibition organized by The Art Institute of Chicago and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, the book is a provocative study of influence and innovation. With a wealth of illustrations, it offers a new perspective on some of the best-known masterpieces of modern art, as well as fresh insight into two of its central personalities."--BOOK JACKET

Gustave Moreau : between epic and dream by Gustave Moreau ( Book )
9 editions published in 1999 in English and French and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) was one of the most influential and idiosyncratic painters of the nineteenth century. He developed a reputation as an artistic hermit, committed to a highly personal vision of painting that combined myth, mysticism, history, and a fascination with the bizarre and exotic. Yet Moreau was also a prominent public figure in the Paris art world, winning praise for exhibits at the Salon, becoming a respected teacher at the Ecole des beaux-arts, and exerting a powerful influence on Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault, and the schools of Symbolism and Surrealism. This book, published to coincide with a spectacular international exhibition that marks the centenary of Moreau's death, presents a wide range of the artist's most famous and beautiful works along with penetrating essays and catalogue entries that explain his unique achievements in all their intellectual complexity and visual richness."--BOOK JACKET

Renoir by Douglas W Druick ( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and French and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) is one of the best-loved artists of the French Impressionist circle. During his long and highly productive career, he created works ranging in subject matter from scenes of modern life to portraits, nudes, landscapes, and still lifes. The collections of The Art Institute of Chicago embrace every aspect of his art, including such masterpieces as Lunch at the Restaurant Fournaise, Acrobats at the Cirque Fernando, and Two Sisters (On the Terrace). This book represents twenty-six works by Renoir in full color, highlighting his activities as painter, draftsman, printmaker, and sculptor. Douglas W. Druick's essay on the artist's life and achievements provides insight into the historical significance and visual appeal of his imagery."--BOOK JACKET
