Manet : the still-life paintings by George L Mauner( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Still-life painting offers everything from pure sensual pleasure to a challenge for rigorous aesthetic analysis. A bowl of luscious fruit, a vase of exquisite flowers, an arrangement of food on a table - all can be enjoyed on many levels." "Manet's still-life paintings are among the finest ever created, and account for almost one-fifth of all his works. The full range of these oils, watercolors, and prints is discussed in this study and beautifully reproduced in color."--Jacket
Manet/Velázquez : the French taste for Spanish painting by Gary Tinterow( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated book accompanies a groundbreaking exhibition - the first of such scale and depth to be organized around this subject - that traces the roots of Modernism in mid-nineteenth-century French Realism. In 1804, at the dawn of the French Empire, there were no more than a handful of Spanish paintings in public collections in France. During the course of the nineteenth century, however, French collectors and museums assembled substantial holdings of works by such Spanish masters as El Greco, Zurbaran, Velazquez, Murillo, and Goya, while French writers and artists - among them Hugo and Baudelaire, Gericault, Delacroix, Millet, Courbet, Degas, and especially Manet - came to understand, appreciate, and even emulate Spanish painting of the Golden Age. Here approximately two hundred works by French and Spanish artists chart the development of this cultural influence and map a fascinating shift in the paradigm of painting, from Idealism to Realism, from Italy to Spain, from Renaissance to Baroque. Above all, these images demonstrate how direct contact with Spanish painting fired the imagination of nineteenth-century French artists and brought about the triumph of Realism in the 1860s, and with it a foundation for modern art."--Jacket

Alfred Sisley by Richard Shone( Book )

14 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has never before been a major retrospective exhibition in Europe or America of Sisley's work, and there have been few serious publications. He remains therefore the least known of the Major Impressionists. Although a prolific artist, the uneven quality of his output has made it difficult to establish his particular place within the history of Impressionism. An important international exhibition (of which this is the catalogue) has been organised by the Royal Academy in London, the Musee d'Orsay in Paris and The Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore. By concentrating on only the highest quality pictures from throughout Sisley's career, his contribution to the forging of Impressionism in the 1860s, his mastery of style in the 1870s and his resolution of the problems of technique in the 1880s are all surveyed and illustrated. In addition, his individual exploration of the idea of serial painting in the 1890s is examined. The influence of earlier painters, both French and English, as well as of his contemporaries, is studied in Christopher Lloyd's essay on Sisley's stylistic development. Caroline Durand-Ruel Godfroy, great-granddaughter of the dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, discusses the relationship between the artist and his dealer. The impact of Impressionism in America and the history of early exhibitions and collectors there have been researched by William Johnston, who publishes his findings. Written by an international team of scholars, this book is a richly illustrated complement to the exhibition, exploring all its themes in detail

Gauguin Tahiti by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life of Paul Gauguin is one of the richest and most mythic in the history of Western art. A banker and "Sunday painter," he left behind family and homeland and sailed to the South Seas, seeking a life "in ecstasy, in peace, and for art." Gauguin Tahiti, the first major retrospective of the artists work in fifteen years, offers an in-depth study of the fabled Polynesian years that have so defined our image of the painter. Alongside essays by leading American and French critics on every aspect of Gauguins art, from the legendary canvases to his sculptures, ceramics, and innovative graphic works, are discussions of the Polynesian society, culture, and religion that helped shape them; an in-depth biographical narrative of the artists life, with the many epiphanies, frustrations, and discoveries that make his time in the South Seas one of the most mythologically potent episodes in the history of Western art; and a chronicle of his changing fortunes in the century since his death. At the center of it all is Gauguins 1897 masterpiece, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, the summation and crowning glory of his mature career, presented with unprecedented depth and authority. Over one hundred years later, Gauguin remains one of the most enigmatic and attractive figures of 19th-century art, the very pivot of modernism, and Gauguin Tahiti finally portrays this crucial period of his life in all its color and drama

Nadar by Maria Morris Hambourg( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in German and English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nadar, whose real name was Felix Tournachon (1820-1910), was a conspicuous, even astonishing presence in nineteenth-century France. Engaging and quick-witted, he invented himself over and over as a bohemian writer, a journalist, a romantic utopian, a caricaturist, a portrait photographer, a balloonist, an entrepreneur, a prophet of aeronautics. The name "Nadar" was on everyone's lips. Today, it is Nadar's photography that is remembered. His sitters, who were often his friends, included the great men and women of his time: Dumas, Rossini, Baudelaire, Sarah Bernhardt, Daumier, Berlioz, George Sand, Delacroix. Nadar's legendary name has been attached not only to his original photographs but to reprints, copies and a great deal of studio work. For that reason, this volume exactingly reproduces some one hundred photographs from the years 1854-60, the period of his earliest and finest photography, allowing viewers to become familiar with the subtle light and balanced, velvety tones that distinguish Nadar's original work. Accompanying the photographs are essays that shed new light on the many facets of Nadar
Edward Burne-Jones, Victorian artist-dreamer by Stephen Wildman( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pupil of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and a protege of John Ruskin, Burne-Jones belonged to the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, creating a narrative style of romantic symbolism steeped in medieval legend and fused with the influence of Italian Renaissance masters that was to have widespread influence on both British and European art. Within the sophisticated culture of the late Victorian period, Burne-Jones's star rose rapidly, and by the 1880s he had become the establishment artist par excellence, one of the most admired and sought-after painters in Europe

Adolph Menzel, 1815-1905 : between romanticism and impressionism by Adolph Menzel( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famous across Europe and America, recipient of the highest possible honours in Germany including the order of the Black Eagle and elevation to nobility, admired by Degas as 'the greatest living master', Adolph Menzel was perhaps the greatest German painter of the late nineteenth century. In this splendidly illustrated book--the only comprehensive volume on Menzel in English--photographs of the artist and contemporary Berlin accompany reproductions of hundreds of his paintings and drawings. Menzel specialists and art historians contribute chapters on his life and art, his visits to France, his critical reception, relevant social and historical background, and different approaches to his work. ... Until recently, Menzel's many paintings and drawings were separated from one another in collections on either side of the Berlin Wall. Now, in the wake of reunification, the Berlin Museums have put together the most extensive Menzel exhibit since the retrospective that followed his death in 1905"--Page 4 of cover
The cult of beauty : the Victorian avant-garde 1860-1900 by Esmé Whittaker( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book "focuses on a period in the nineteenth century when a group of artists, architects and designers found themselves united in the search for a new Beauty. The Aesthetic Movement, as it came to be known, sought nothing less than the creation of a new kind of art, an art freed from outworn establishment ideas and Victorian notions of morality. This was to be "Art for Art's sake" -- art that did not tell stories of make moral points,art that dared simply to offer visual delight and hint at sensuous pleasure. This new and exciting "Cult of Beauty" joined, for a while at least, romantic bohemians such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, along with maverick figures such as James McNeill Whistler and painters of grand classical subjects who belonged to the circle of Frederic Leighton. ... The book also reveals how artists' houses, their collections of beautiful things and their extravagant lifestyles became the object of public fascination. the influence of the "Palaces of Art" created by Rossetti and Morris, Lord Leighton and others led to a widespread revolution in architecture and interior decoration. Oscar Wilde made his name promoting the idea of "The House Beautiful" and the styles favoured by Aesthetic designers were among the very first to be widely exploited commercially in Britain."

The Pre-Raphaelite lens : British photography and painting, 1848-1875 by Diane Waggoner( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As photography steadily gained a foothold in the 1840s, a group of British painters calling themselves the Pre-Raphaelites came of age. Answering John Ruskin's call to study nature, 'rejecting nothing, selecting nothing, and scorning nothing,' these young painters were also spurred on by the possibilities of the new medium (introduced in 1839), particularly its ability to capture every nuance, every detail... This volume explores the rich dialogue between photography and painting through the themes of landscape, portraiture, literary and historical narratives and modern-life subjects. These artists - from photographers Lewis Carroll, Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, Henry Peach Robinson and Oscar Gustave Rejlander, to such painters as John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John William Inchbold - not only had much in common, but also upended traditional approaches to making pictures."--Publisher's description
