Manet/Velázquez : the French taste for Spanish painting by Gary Tinterow( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 889 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

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

16 editions published between 1966 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 709 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."--Cover p. [4]

Nadar by Maria Morris Hambourg( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in German and English and held by 648 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

The cult of beauty : the Victorian avant-garde 1860-1900 by Stephen Calloway( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 521 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 432 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. And yet, the Pre-Raphaelites' debt to photography has barely been acknowledged. From photography, painters learned to see anew: adapting such radical qualities as abrupt cropping, planar recession, and a lack of modulation between forms, painters made their art modern, sometimes shockingly so. Photographers in turn looked to Pre-Raphaelite visual strategies and subject matter - mined from literature, history, religion - to secure, as Julia Margaret Cameron wrote, 'the character and uses of High Art.' These artists developed a shared vocabulary - featuring light and minute detail as an emblem of visual truth - which helped launch realism as the century's dominant visual mode. 'Exactness, ' a critic affirmed in 1856, 'is the tendency of the age.' 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
Pierre Bonnard : photographs and paintings by Françoise Heilbrun( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in 3 languages and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first collection of the photographs of master Impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard, this work of scholarship documents the existing oeuvre of Bonnard's work, from delicate nature studies and landscapes in his native France and elsewhere in Euriope, to striking portraiture and intimate images of lovers, friends and family. The more than 276 photographs and illustrations, demonstrate the range and genius of Bonnard's work, and offer insights into his process as an artist. Bonnard's photographs wre the inspiration for several of his well-known works, among them the illustrations fro Parallèlemnt by Verlaine (1900) and Daphnis and Chloé by Longus (1902). The texts and critical annotations make important connections between Bonnard's photographs and his drawings and paintings
