Edouard Vuillard by Guy Cogeval( Book )

38 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The long and illustrious career of Edouard Vuillard spans the fin-de-siecle and the first four decades of the twentieth century, during which time the French painter, printmaker, and photographer created an extraordinary body of work. This is the first volume to explore Vuillard's rich and varied career in its totality, presenting nearly 350 works that demonstrate the full range of his subject matter and reveal both the public and private sides of this quintessentially Parisian artist." "In a series of illustrated essays and catalogue entries, the authors explore Vuillard's complex and diverse artistic development, beginning with his academic training in Paris in the late 1880s and the innovative Nabi paintings of the 1890s for which he is best known, including his provocative, disquieting middle-class interiors and his work associated with the avant-garde theatre. The authors also examine Vuillard's splendid but lesser known large-scale decorations, his luminous landscapes, and the elegant portraits from the last decades of his career. In addition to paintings, the volume includes a substantial selection of drawings and graphics, together with a large group of striking photographs by the artist, many of which are published here for the first time." "This illustrated catalogue accompanies the most comprehensive exhibition ever devoted to the work of Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940). The exhibition opens at the National Gallery of Art in Washington and travels to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais in Paris, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London."--Jacket
Renoir in the 20th century by Auguste Renoir( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a biography of Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). Renoir was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. This work dedicates itself to the final three decades of Renoir's career in which the painter turned away from Impressionism and toward a more decorative approach informed by his own idiosyncratic interpretation of art history. During this period, Renoir was initially looking at painters such as Rubens, Titian and Raphael, and dedicating himself to cheery subjects such as bathers, domestic idylls and landscapes that were influenced by both classical mythology and by his relocation to the South of France
Gauguin and the origins of symbolism by Paul Gauguin( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the mid-1880s until his departure for Tahiti in 1891, Gauguin moved beyond Impressionism to become the leading figure of the Symbolist movement in painting. This departure from Impressionism led him to question the entire 'naturalist' tradition of European art from the Renaissance onwards. He sacrificed all of painting's descriptive devices in favour of line and flat colour. His path towards Symbolism can also be characterised as a 'primitive' quest, developed both in iconography and style. On the iconographic level, this tendency starts from the use of a number of pastoral themes representing scenes of rural life. This spiritual return was accompanied by a stylistic regression, a leap from naturalism towards archaic modes of representation. The volume follows this process through a series of encounters between Gauguin and his masters, his contemporaries and his pupils."--Jacket

Right under the sun : landscape in Provence from classicism to modernism (1750-1920) by Guy Cogeval( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To trace the history of landscape painting in Provence from 1750 to 1920 is to reveal the vital role of the Midi in the development of a genre that proved to be of major importance and cleared the way for the most innovative experiments." "As this catalogue demonstrates, the history of landscape painting in Provence began in the eighteenth century. One of the finest pages in the history of landscapes opens to Joseph Vernet. His seascapes, storms and, above all, famous series of French ports - broad, spectacular views, veritable topographical descriptions combining the demands for realism with a study of variations in light - served as a model for many artists, including Lacroix de Marseille and Henry d'Arles. The works of lesser-known artists, such as Jean-Joseph-Xavier Bidauld and Jean-Antoine Constantin, who taught Granet and Loubon, testify to the fondness for the simple poetry of elegiac nature, which in Provence offered a foretaste of Italy."--Jacket
Drama and desire : art and theatre from the French Revolution to the First World War by Musée Cantini( Book )

Post-impressionists by Guy Cogeval( Book )

13 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this work we are introduced to a world in which 112 artists from 16 countries were active in the century after 1860, particularly in France. It deals with individual artists and with successive schools -- Pointillism, Pont-Aven, Nabis, Symbolists, Realists, Expressionists. The author tells the story of how Sensation, Challenge, and Disorientation in the arts reflected violent changes in society and culture in the entire period of Post-Impressionism. At a time when many of its members expressed themselves as suffocating in the mediocre climate of their surroundings, Post-Impressionism released complex, fresh, and vital energies in the arts. Whistler affirmed that "complete artistic freedom clearly went above and beyond the conventions of craft." Cézanne carried forward the exuberant romanticism of Delacroix by depicting fierce aspects of nature that transcended the forms of the leading Impressionists and led to cubism and other experiments of Picasso. Gauguin chose to emphasize basic forms and colors of a savage non-western civilization free from conventions imposed by the Impressionists in order to define his world, thus leading to the Fauves. Van Gogh, as a portraitist, landscapist, and still life painter, created a powerful French Expressionism whose immediate influence has been world-wide. Hypnotizingly disciplined, the achievement of Seurat was a neo-impressionism in the form of Pointillism, an art more precise and structural than the narrative tendency of the Impressionists. With few set theories and rare direct use of models, Toulouse-Lautrec recorded his own individual life-style, largely through the human figure, giving personal freedom of color and composition sensitive and Expressionist lines. Together, these artists and their contemporaries helped prepare the way for increased use of novelty in color and imaginative combination of realism and abstraction, leading to the formulation of rather permissive aesthetic values, which are so prevalent today. -- Inside jacket flaps

Hitchcock and art : fatal coincidences by Dominique Païni( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Italian and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Movies are unquestionably one of the cutting-edge media in 20th-century artistic production, a discipline that has contributed more than any other to fashioning the visual culture of our contemporaries and of the artists of our day and age. The Center Pompidou continues its policy of publicizing trail-blazing references to cinematographic culture by presenting the exhibition Hitchcock and Art which first went on show in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and whose Paris debut is marked by an adaptation and some significant additions, primarily by the arrival of works from the collections held in the Musee' National d'Art Moderne. Keeping faith with the Centre's multidisciplinary vocation of exploring and valorizing relationships between the different fields of modern and contemporary artistic creation, the exhibition aims at establishing a dialogue and revealing correlations between a leading, complex and universally known opus of cinematography work on the one hand and artistic movements on the other, from Romanticism to Surrealism, as well as architecture or graphic design, which left such a profound mark as they nourished Alfred Hitchcock's imagery and aesthetic. Hitchcock and Art provides the Centre with a chance to offer the public not only the exhibition, but also Hitchcock's complete repertoire of films

Spectaculaire Second Empire by Musée d'Orsay( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Régime décrié en son temps et honni après sa chute, le Second Empire fut longtemps marqué du sceau décadent et superficiel de la "fête impériale". Sur fond de bouleversements sociaux, cette époque de prospérité fut pourtant un temps de fastes et d'euphorie économique, d'ostentation et de célébrations multiples qu'il convient aujourd'hui de réexaminer. Des décors éphémères aux mutations haussmanniennes de Paris, des joyaux impériaux à l'éclectisme des arts décoratifs, de Cabanel à Manet, cet ouvrage brosse le portrait d'une époque foisonnante, brillante et riche de contradictions aux sources de notre modernité."--Page 4 de couverture
