Origins of impressionism by Gary Tinterow( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handsome publication, which accompanies a major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a lively and engaging account of the artistic scene in Paris in the 1860s, the years that witnessed the beginnings of Impressionism. For the first time the interactions and relationships among the group of painters who became known as the Impressionists are examined without the overworn art historical polarities commonly evoked: academic versus avant-garde, classicist versus romantic, realist versus impressionist. A host of strong personalities contributed to this history, and their style evolved into a new way of looking at the world. These artists wanted above all to give an impression of truth and to have an impact on or even to shock the public. And they wanted to measure up to or surpass their elders. This complex and rich environment is presented here - the grand old men and the young turks encounter each other, the Salon pontificates, and the new generation moves fitfully ahead, benignly but always with determination. Origins of Impressionism gives a day-by-day, year-by-year study of the genesis of an epoch-making style. Bibliographies and provenances are provided for each of the almost two hundred works in the exhibition, and there is an illustrated chronology. With more than two hundred superb colorplates, this informative survey is an essential work for both the general reader and the scholar

The Steins collect : Matisse, Picasso, and the Parisian avant-garde by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As American expatriates living in Paris, the writer Gertrude Stein, her brothers Leo and Michael, and Michael's wife Sarah were absolutely pivotal in shaping the city's vibrant cultural life in the early 20th century. They hosted Saturday evening salons at which the brightest artists, writers, musicians, and collectors convened to discuss the latest developments. They aggressively promoted and collected emerging painters and sculptors, particularly their close friends Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. And along the way they developed unparalleled holdings in modernist work by such figures as Paul Cézanne, Juan Gris, Francis Picabia, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Lavishly produced and featuring more than 600 images, The Steins Collect is the first comprehensive exploration of the Steins' extraordinary collections and their enduring cultural influence. The book explores the Steins' impact on art-making and collecting practices in Europe and the United States; the intense sibling rivalries that developed around key artists and ideas; the roots of Leo's aesthetic theories in the thought of William James and Bernard Berenson; Sarah and Michael's role in founding the Académie Matisse; Gertrude's complex relationship with Picasso and their artistic influence on each other; Le Corbusier's radical villa design for the family; and much more. The Steins Collect not only reveals the artistic prescience of this innovative family and their important patronage, but also traces how they created a new international standard of taste for modern art."--Publisher's description

This volume includes informative essays by both French and American curators as well as a wealth of new information, including the detailed results of new technical studies using macrophotography and x-radiography. 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

Lucian Freud on John Constable by Lucian Freud( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" 'All Constable's work is erotic in the true sense' says Lucian Freud in a conversation with William Feaver about what Constable's work means to him. This conversation took place while Freud was selecting work for the Constable exhibition shown at the Grand Palais, Paris, from October 2002-January 2003. Due to the huge success of the exhibition, the catalogue (in which Freud's conversation was published in French only) sold out during the run of the exhibition, and is now no onger in print. This conversation has never before been published in English, and the British Council is now making it available in its entirity, in English, in a beautifully designed hard-back book. Sixty-one full-colour illustrations of work by Constable and Freud accompany the conversation. Lucian Freud has made a new etching 'Elm Tree after Constable' specially for this book, which is featured in detail on the cover, and in full inside the book" -- Press release by British Council ([1] leaf ; 30 cm.), loosely inserted

Bohèmes : de Léonard de Vinci à Picasso : Paris, Grand Palais, 26 septembre 2012-14 janvier 2013 ; Madrid, Fundación Mapfre, 6 février 2013-5 mai 2013( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le bohémien exclu et l'artiste miséreux fascinent et effrayent l'Europe depuis la Renaissance. Le premier incarne une liberté sauvage, secrète et mystérieuse et le second glorifie le vagabondage, la vie sans règles ni attaches, intense et sensuelle. Utilisé comme modèle par les peintres de la Renaissance, le bohémien devient au XIXe siècle un sujet de fascination pour des artistes qui, à l'instar de Courbet, se revendiquent bohémiens. Ils se croisent, se toisent, se mêlent et deviennent indissociablement liés par une vision commune d'une vie hors des sentiers battus. De la curiosité à la fascination il n'y a qu'un pas ou plutôt qu'un chemin. C'est ce chemin historique que parcourt l'exposition afin de comprendre l'assimilation faite à l'époque moderne entre l'artiste bohème et le bohémien. Un nouvel axe d'étude pluridisciplinaire, embrassant les beaux-arts, la littérature, la musique, la photographie et le cinéma explore quatre siècles d'histoire européenne pour éclairer cette période courte mais marquante: la bohème que ales moins de vingt ans ne peuvent pas connaître". Qu'elle mène vers de nouvelles contrées ou de la misère à la gloire, la route est cependant bien dure, car comme l'écrit Henry Murger: "Ce n'est point gai tous les jours, la bohème. Plus de 180 oeuvres sont reproduites dans ce catalogue, illustrant cette histoire commune, l'une des plus anciennes d'Europe."--P. [4] of cover
