Great French paintings from the Barnes Foundation : Impressionist, Post-impressionist, and Early Modern by Barnes Foundation( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most eagerly awaited set of reproductions in art-book history: more than one hundred masterpieces of modern French painting from one of the world's fabled repositories of great art - the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania - are here published in full color for the first time. These paintings are the crown jewels of the extraordinary collection assembled in the early twentieth century by Dr. Albert C. Barnes, the bold and original collector who established the Foundation in 1922 as a school for the study of art and philosophy. Now, after six decades of limited access to visitors and a ban on color reproduction, the Barnes Foundation welcomes a wider audience through the publication of this magnificent volume. Manet, Renoir, Monet, Cezanne, van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rousseau, Soutine, La Fresnaye, Modigliani, Picasso, Braque, and Matisse - the list of artists gives only a hint of the splendors this book contains. Here are major landmarks of modern art that many know of but few have seen, including twenty-four Renoirs encompassing the entire span of his career ... thirty monumental Cezannes, including bather groups, landscapes, still lifes, and portraits ... Matisse's pivotal Bonheur de vivre, Three Sisters Triptych, and world-famous Dance mural (and eighteen other paintings and oil studies) ... the finest of van Gogh's six paintings of Joseph-Etienne Roulin ... Seurat's celebrated Models ... the Douanier Rousseau's strange, unsettling Unpleasant Surprise ... the tender portrait of young M. Loulou by Gauguin ... a spectacular cluster of seven early Picassos. And this is only a sampling of the exhilarating visual banquet offered in these pages. Great French Paintings from The Barnes Foundation is the companion volume to an unprecedented exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. To describe the paintings and relate the achievements of Dr. Barnes as a collector and an educator, commentaries and essays have been provided by a dozen notable American and French art historians and curators: Francoise Cachin, Anne Distel, and Anne Roquebert of the Musee d'Orsay; Jack Flam, Distinguished Professor of Art History. Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York; Michel Hoog of the Musee de l'Orangerie; Charles S. Moffett of the Phillips Collection; Marla Prather and Jeffrey S. Weiss of the National Gallery of Art; Joseph J. Rishel and Christopher Riopelle of the Philadelphia Museum of Art; Helene Seckel of the Musee Picasso (Paris); and Richard J. Wattenmaker of the Archives of American Art. For everyone to whom the paintings in the Barnes Foundation have been a legend - unattainable - and for every devotee of great art and beautiful books, this volume will be a joy and a treasure

A 328-page hardcover overflowing with 500 illustrations, 117 in color, Cžanne to Van Gogh is both the fascinating story of a unique collection and a major contribution to the study of postimpressionist art in late-19th-century France
Renoir by Anne Distel( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this elegant readable monograph, noted art historian Anne Distel offers an illuminating new account of the life of Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). She deftly narrates Renoir's rise from apprentice porcelain painter to celebrated artist, quoting judiciously from the painter's own vivid letters from reviews by contemporary critics. In addition, she offers keen analyses of Renoir's style at each stage of his sixty-year career. And Distel does not consider that career in isolation, but uses the latest discoveries in the documentary evidence - some of them her own - to re-create the artistic and social milieus in which Renoir worked. She traces his relationships with other artists, both Manet and his fellow Impressionists and older contemporaries like Corot, Diaz, Courbet and Daubigny, as well as the younger Bonnard, Matisse, and Picasso; with writers like Zola, Mallarme, and Mirbeau; with his dealers, like Paul Durand-Ruel, Ambroise Vollard and the Bernheim brothers; and not least, with the patrons who were so important to his career, like the Charpentiers, the Berards, Charles Ephrussi, Maurice Gangnat and Dr. Barnes." "Distel's insightful text is illustrated throughout with some three hundred splendid color reproductions of the artist's finest and most representative works plus important archival photographs. This is the definitive monograph on one of the world's best-loved artists."--Jacket

Renoir's portraits : impressions of an age by Colin B Bailey( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the Impressionists, only Pierre-Auguste Renoir earned distinction as a professional portrait painter. For more than fifty years Renoir explored the genre of portraiture, experimenting and pressing forward in his determination to become -- as he explained to Monet in January 1884 - "a painter of figures." This sumptuously illustrated book is the first devoted exclusively to Renoir's portraiture, bringing together the finest examplesof the portraits he painted during each period of his prolific career. In these delightful paintings Renoir created uniquely endearing and enduring images of pleasure, comfort, and prosperity."--Amazon
