Most widely held works by Guy Cogeval
Edouard Vuillard by Guy Cogeval( Book )
28 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,226 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 365 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 )
7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 282 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."--BOOK JACKET
Right under the sun : landscape in Provence from classicism to modernism (1750-1920) by Guy Cogeval( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 207 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."--BOOK JACKET
