Augustin Pajou : royal sculptor, 1730-1809 by James David Draper( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is the first major study of the French Neoclassical sculptor Augustin Pajou (1730-1809) in almost a century, and it is the only work about him in English. Here the artist's work is discussed and illustrated in depth, and the artistic, courtly, and aristocratic circles in which he worked are considered in detail. This examination concentrates on the beginnings of Neoclassicism and explores the philosophical and scientific underpinnings of the Enlightenment, in which Pajou played an important part. This publication, which accompanies a major exhibition at the Musee du Louvre, Paris, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, presents to both the scholar and the general reader a great artist who has at last received his due. The volume is lavishly illustrated and contains a detailed chronology, a short history of the artist's critical reputation, an exhaustive bibliography, and a complete index
Playing with fire : European terracotta models, 1740-1840 by James David Draper( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication offers the first comprehensive overview of Neoclassical modeling in the years from 1740 to 1840. The catalogue, numbering 142 objects, analyzes modeling at every stage, from the brusque preliminary impulse of the artist to the highly finished statuettes that were regarded as works of art in their own right. Many of the greatest names are represented here: from France, Bouchardon, Pigalle, Pajou, Houdon, Roland, Clodion, Stouf, and Chinard; from Germany, Dannecker and Schadow; from Italy, Canova and Pacetti; from Sweden, the magnificent Sergel. Some artists are examined in considerable depth, with as many as nine works. Lesser-known talents who merit greater attention and emerge heroically are the Swiss Sonnenschein and the Russians Kozlovsky and Martos." "The sections of the catalogue, each preceded by an introductory essay, examine the sculptors' techniques and training and explore prominent themes, such as terracotta's role in the statuary of Great Men and in tomb sculpture, depictions of Arcadia and the loves of the gods, and scenes from the Iliad and Ovid's Metamorphoses. Special attention is paid to the ancient visual and literary sources that motivated these generations of discerning and erudite sculptors. Short biographies of all of the artists are included."--Jacket

L'antiquité rêvée : innovations et résistances au XVIIIe siècle by Musée du Louvre( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'art du XVIIIe siècle est souvent perçu comme une marche progressive du petit goût rocaille vers un grand goût classique. Cette exposition et l'ouvrage .qui l'accompagne souhaite, au contraire, mettre en lumière les expériences diverses qui ont été menées pour renouveler au contact du modèle antique les formes et les thèmes artistiques, entre 1720 et 1790. Peintures, sculptures, dessins, gravures, arts décoratifs : quelque cent cinquante oeuvres majeures illustrent ces processus d'innovation, d'émulation, voire de résistance à l'antique dans l'Europe du XVIIIe siècle, qui éclairent les tensions au coeur même de la démarche créatrice."

Bouchardon : royal artist of the enlightenment by Juliette Trey( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most imaginative and fascinating artists of eighteenth-century France, Edme 'Bouchardon' (1698 1762) was instrumental in the transition from Rococo to Neoclassicism and in the artistic rediscovery of classical antiquity. Much celebrated in his time, 'Bouchardon' created some of the most iconic images of the age of Louis XV. His oeuvre demonstrates a remarkable variety of themes (from copies after the antique to subjects of history and mythology, portraiture, anatomical studies, ornament, fountains and tombs), media (drawings, sculptures, medals, prints), and techniques (chalk, plaster, wax, terracotta, marble, bronze). With five essays by experts on Bouchardon's sculpture and graphic arts, more than 140 catalogue entries, and a detailed chronology, this book aims to demonstrate the originality of Bouchardon's art within the cultural and social context of the period, while suggesting the subtle relationship between, as well as the relative autonomy of, the artist s two careers as a sculptor and a draftsman. This lavishly illustrated publication represents an unprecedented and thorough survey on this major and unique artist from the Age of Enlightenment, offering indepth scholarship based on unpublished material
