Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt by Emile Michel( )

5 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A painting by Rembrandt is a living entity that exists according to its own laws, which reflects the multiplicity of the thoughts and emotions in the painter's mind. Men and their mental condition: that is the fundamental issue the artist tries to solve throughout his life. Tormented by family problems, he took shelter in painting, which became even better as things got worse, as if depicted by a visionary. Hiding his anxiety in the optimism of his themes and in the strength of dark colors, he was ultimately victorious
Great masters of landscape painting by Emile Michel( )

35 editions published between 1906 and 2015 in English and French and held by 1,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although considered a minor genre for a long time, the art of landscape has risen above its forebears - religious and historic painting - to become a genre of its own. Giorgione in Italy, the Brueghels of the Flemish School, Claude Lorrain and Poussain of the French School, the Dutch landscape painters and Turner and Constable of England are just a few of the great landscapists who have left their indelible mark on the history of landscape and the art of painting as a whole. After serving for a long time as a backdrop for paintings and as a skill-practising exercise for artists, nature came to be observed for its own sake and was incorporated into works of art as an illustration of an enlightened and scientific study of the world. Through continual change, it has inspired the greatest painters and has allowed some others, like Turner, to transcend the relentless search for mere realism in pictorial representation. Through this study, Émile Michel offers an exceptional panorama, from the 15th century to the present, of art and the way artists portray the world in all its splendour
The Brueghels by Emile Michel( )

20 editions published between 1892 and 2012 in English and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Brueghels, Pieter the Elder, Pieter Brueghel the Younger ("Hell Brueghel") and Jan Brueghel the Elder ("Velvet Brueghel"), embody one of the largest dynasties of Flemish painting. Beyond their history, their masterworks bear witness to the priceless contribution of this family in the evolution of northern European painting. Refusing the canons of Italian mannerism, the masterworks printed here illustrate the artistic independence of the Brueghels and the Flemish Renaissance. In popular and allegorical scenes, Pieter the Elder and his heirs denounce the daily preoccupations of the people and the general unrest due to the Spanish occupation. In this splendid, richly documented work, the authors, Emile Michel and Victoria Charles, shed new light on Flemish painting from the 15th to the 17th century."--Publisher's website
Landschaftsmalerei by Emile Michel( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Obwohl die Landschaftsmalerei lange Zeit als Untergenre angesehen wurde, ist sie doch über ihre Vorgänger - die religiöseund historische Malerei - hinausgewachsen und hat sich zu einem eigenen Genre entwickelt. Giorgione in Italien, dieBrueghels der Flämischen Schule, Claude Lorrain und Poussain der Französischen Schule und Turner und Constable inEngland sind nur einige wenige großartige Landschaftsmaler, die die Geschichte der Landschaft und die Kunst der Malereigeprägt haben. Nachdem sie lange Zeit nur als Hintergrund oder als Zeichenübung gedient hatte, wurde die Natur als eigenerGegenstand

Bruegel : cca 1525-1569 by Émile Michel( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and Czech and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Bruegels - allen voran Pieter der Ältere, zusammen mit seinen Söhnen Pieter ('Höllenbruegel') und Jan ('Samt- oder Blumenbruegel') - sind die bedeutendste flämische Malerfamilie. Ihre Werke sind Zeugnisse des unschätzbaren Beitrags, den diese Familie in der Entwicklung der Malerei des nördlichen Europa geleistet hat. Sie entzogen sich bewusst dem Einfluss des italienischen Manierismus und schufen damit einen ganz eigenen, unabhängigen und tief im originellen Charakter der Flamen verwurzelten Stil. In teils volkstümlichen, teils allegorischen Szenen schildern Pieter Bruegel und seine Nachfolger auf unnachahmliche Weise den Alltag der bäuerlichen und der städtischen Bevölkerung zur Zeit der spanischen Herrschaft über die Niederlande. In diesem opulent bebilderten Werk zeichnen die Autoren, Emile Michel und Victoria Charles, ein lebendiges Bild, anhand dessen wir die Entwicklung der niederländischen und flämischen Kunst in der Zeit zwischen dem 15. und dem 17. Jahrhundert nachvollziehen können
Les Brueghel by Emile Michel( Book )

32 editions published between 1892 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pieter Bruegel, l'Ancien (près de Breda, 1525 - Bruxelles, 1569) Pieter Bruegel fut le premier membre important d'une famille d'artistes, actifs durant quatre générations. D'abord dessinateur avant de devenir peintre, il peignit des thèmes religieux, comme la Tour de Babel, avec des couleurs extrêmement vives. Influencé par Jérôme Bosch, il s'attela à de vastes scènes complexes décrivant la vie paysanne et des allégories bibliques ou spirituelles, souvent peuplées de sujets plongés dans des actions très variées. Pourtant, ces scènes ont en commun une intégrité informelle et un certain humour. A travers son oeuvre, il introduisit un nouvel esprit d'humanité. Ami des humanistes, Bruegel composa de véritables paysages philosophiques au coeur desquels l'Homme accepte passivement son destin, prisonnier du temps qui passe

Rembrandt{u2019}s work was in high demand in Amsterdam during his lifetime.

From portraits to biblical scenes, landscapes to self-portraits, Rembrandt was diverse in his subjects and themes. Here, both his paintings and his engravings are brought together in this two-volume set
