American art : 1908-1947, from Winslow Homer to Jackson Pollock by Eric de Chassey( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering a fresh perspective on American art from the first half of the twentieth century, this elegant book presents approximately two hundred paintings, works on paper, sculptures, and photographs by artists such as Ansel Adams, Walker Evans, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe, Ben Shahn, Paul Strand, and Grant Wood. Works by other well-known and less-familiar artists are also included, each with an individual commentary. All the works are reproduced in stunning full-color and duotone plates. The history of American art has been told almost exclusively by American writers. This new book, written mainly by French scholars, brings a new point of view to the painting, sculpture, graphic arts, and photography of the period, which begins with the scandals of the Eight and the Armory Show and ends with the advent of Abstract Expressionism. How did artists as diverse as Arthur Dove, Jacob Lawrence, and finally Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman struggle with the opposing notions of what it was to be an American artist and what it was to be part of the international history of modern art? The artists who succeeded were those who found ways to reconcile these issues, and who understood that the twentieth century was the century of Americanism. Beginning with the realist tradition, this lavish book looks at the different manifestations of the period's various movements and schools in the United States, ultimately offering a unique look at American art -- from outside America
Alphonse Mucha by Alphonse Mucha( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfonse Mucha is known largely for having originated Art Nouveau, when his poster of the actress Sarah Bernhardt became a legendary icon of the movement. Mucha went on to design hundreds of pieces in the decorative arts field, but later distanced himself from the style he pioneered, devoting his time and energy to painting. This book presents the full array of Mucha's artistic contributions-not only his posters and jewelry designs but also his design for the pavilion of Bosnia and Herzegovina at the 1900 World's Fair. The book also includes his works on canvas, which include pastels and frescoes, and his magnum opus, The Slavic Epic, a series of 20 paintings depicting the history of his native people. A stunning selection of 700 color illustrations is accompanied with essays that explore Mucha's style and inspirations, his transition away from the decorative arts, and his forays into photography..."--Publisher description
Frédéric Bazille : prophet of impressionism by Frédéric Bazille( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caravaggio and his legacy by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They were known as the "Caravaggisti"--Artists who imitated the 16th-century master's earthy, realistic style or subject matter. Caravaggio's impact on his contemporaries was immediate, but in the decades that followed his brief career, hundreds of artists drew inspiration from his innovative use of intense light and shadow, the distinctly theatrical atmosphere of his paintings, his use of religious imagery, and his preference for painting directly from life. This companion volume to an exhibition features works by Caravaggio and more than 30 other artists. The book displays an amazing cross section of genre, portraiture, historical subjects, and religious scenes. Bringing together previously unconnected painters from Italy, Northern Europe, France, and Spain, this remarkable collection brilliantly illustrates Caravaggio's enormous effect on the development of 17th-century European painting"--
Frédéric Bazille (1841-1870) and the birth of impressionism by Frédéric Bazille( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and French and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paintings of Frederic Bazille (1841-1870) were rediscovered after the turn of the century by art critics and curators who accredited the artist as an important pioneer in the development of impressionism. Tracing his artistic career from its inception-including his links to Manet, Monet, Renoir, and Cezanne-this book unveils Bazille's complete painted works and reveals the artist's devotion to the principles of avant-garde art in the 1860s. Organized thematically and chronologically, his work is placed into the context of nineteenth-century art and history: from landscape paintings influenced by Monet, to his still lifes, portraits, and singular technique, and from his departure for war to his posthumous renown. Presented as in a catalogue raisonne, sixty-five of Bazille's paintings are accompanied by a detailed technical caption and an explanatory notice. Facsimiles of the artist's personal letters are interspersed throughout the book, providing intimate insight on his life. Bazille is a major artist who contributed to the advent of impressionism, and this monograph is completed with a comprehensive bibliography, a list of works, and two maps detailing his life in Montpellier and Paris

Le goût de Diderot : Greuze, Chardin, Falconet, David ... by Musée Fabre (Montpellier)( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En 1759, sur la sollicitation de son ami Grimm, Diderot se voit confier la tâche de rédiger les comptes rendus des Salons, expositions organisées par l'Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture dans le palais du Louvre. Ces écrits, publiés dans la Correspondance littéraire, feront l'admiration de nombreux écrivains et critiques du XIXe siècle. À l'occasion de la commémoration du tricentenaire de la naissance du philosophe, cet ouvrage propose une synthèse des récentes recherches sur les liens entretenus par Diderot avec les Arts et sur ses critères de jugement du Beau : la Vérité, la Poésie, la Magie. À travers la présentation d'oeuvres admirées ou décriées par l'écrivain sont mis à l'honneur certains des plus grands maîtres du XVIIIe siècle : Boucher, Chardin, David, Falconet, Greuze, Houdon, Pigalle, Robert, Vernet, Vien, etc. Le partenariat entre le musée Fabre de Montpellier Agglomération et la Fondation de l'Hermitage à Lausanne a permis de réunir un corpus exceptionnel de peintures, sculptures, dessins et gravures qui composent un remarquable panorama de la création française au temps de Diderot."--Page 4 of cover

Signac : les couleurs de l'eau by Paul Signac( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is published on the occasion of the exhibition "Signac, les couleurs de l'eau" presented the musée des impressionnismes in Giverny, from March 29 to July 2, 2013. The description of the water and sky offered by Paul Signac (1863-1935) was an inexhaustible excuse to multiply the color variations. Like Monet, Signac indeed is a constant source of inspiration in the evocation of water and colors. The reflection of light on the surface of the river and the sea are the real fragments, and the artist, ardent defender of pure color, found in this pattern a natural illustration of neo-Impressionist theory of the division of tones
