Looks at the Max Ernst exhibition, "Inside the Sight", at Rice University Museum in 1973. The exhibit was organized, and all the art supplied by patron, collector, and curator Dominique de Menil. She and her husband John had been friends with Ernst for decades, and were leading patrons of the arts in Houston, thus the exhibit.

Visionary architects: Boullée, Ledoux, Lequeu by Jean-Claude Lemagny( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The drawings and engravings of the French visionary architects Boullee, Ledoux, and Lequeu lie on the nervous cusp of Neoclassicism and hallucination. The three designed vast, impractical monuments, villas and temples, cathedrals and libraries, incorporating motifs from the classical era informed by the new intellectual freedoms of the Enlightenment. The resulting drawings and plans are like nothing done before or since, and their daring has reverberated through to us in the work of such architects as Speer, Graves, Sant'Elia, and Stirling

2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the material in this book is drawn from the Couturier Archives. The bulk of the archive consists of the notes of Brother Louis-Bertrand Rayssiguer, the young Dominican monk who drew the plan of the Chapel and worked closely with Matisse on all phases of its building and decorating. From December 1947 to June 1951, Rayssiguier met frequently with the artist and recorded their conversations verbatim

"The Menil Collection: A Selection from the Paleolithic to the Modern Era presents works of art from the extraordinary private collection of Dominique and John de Menil, which was assembled over the last forty years. This book, and the new museum built to house the collection in Houston, Texas, for the first time make available to the public the content of The Menil Collection.

"The Collection has particular concentration in four areas: antiquities from the European, Mediterranean, and Near Eastern worlds, such as the paleolithic Bone with Incised Reindeer, and the Violin Idol from the Cycladic Islands, Greece; Byzantine objects, such as the magnificent gold reliquary; art of tribal cultures, particularly African art but also artifacts from Oceania and the Americas, including headdresses and figures from Mali and Nigeria, effigies and masks from Polynesia and Melanesia, and a splendid Curtain with Thunderbird and Whale (Nitinat people) from western Canada; and modern art."--Jacket
