Masterpieces of the J. Paul Getty Museum by J. Paul Getty Museum( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This illustrated work brings together more than one hundred objects from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of European decorative arts. Included here is a generous selection of French and Italian furniture from the mid-sixteenth to the early nineteenth century. Masterpieces by Andre-Charles Boulle, Bernard(II) van Risenburgh, and others reveal the virtuoso craftsmanship that makes these objects such compelling examples of the furnituremaker's art. Many of the Museum's finest pieces of porcelain, glass, and tin-glazed earthenware are also represented. Tapestries from Gobelins and Beauvais, bronze firedogs from Fontainbleau, and a lathe-turned ivory goblet of astonishing complexity from Saxony are among the other highlights of this volume

Paris : life & luxury in the eighteenth century by Charissa Bremer-David( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luxury items from centuries past are most often seen within museum settings, devoid of their connotations in time and space. This groundbreaking book seeks to reimagine objects from eighteenth-century Paris within their original context, showing how they were used in the daily routines of elite members of society. Against the background of the reign of Louis XV (r. 1723-1774), the chapters move chronologically from morning to night, covering such topics as temporal literacy and technological advances in timekeeping; innovations in domestic architecture and design for privacy; fashion and self-identity as expressed in the ritual of the morning toilette; reading and discussion of literary texts as influences on the collecting of art; and sociability and politesse during nocturnal entertainments. The book reflects current scholarship in social history and material culture, but rather than being an exploration of the vernacular, it investigates the emergence of the luxury trade in eighteenth-century Paris, whose products survive in great quantity due to their superior materials and craftsmanship. The essays reveal many of the considerations -- practical, social, and aesthetic -- that inspired their production. By connecting the purposes, function, and beauty of these works of art, the volume makes a fascinating and important contribution to the study and enjoyment of a great period in French culture."--Publisher's description

A sampling of decorative art objects from all over the world
Woven gold : tapestries of Louis XIV by J. Paul Getty Museum( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meticulously woven by hand with wool, silk, and gilt-metal thread, the tapestry collection of the Sun King,Louis XIV of France, represents the highest achievements of the art form. Intended to enhance the king’s reputation by visualizing his manifest glory and to promote the kingdom’s nascent mercantile economy,the royal collection of tapestries included antique and contemporary sets that followed the designs of the greatest artists of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, including Raphael, Giulio Romano, Rubens, Vouet,and Le Brun. Ranging in date from about 1540 to 1715 and coming from weaving workshops across northern Europe, these remarkable works portray scenes from the bible, history, and mythology. As treasured textiles, the works were traditionally displayed in the royal palaces when the court was in residence and in public on special occasions and feast days. They are still little known, even in France, as they are mostly reserved for the decoration of elite state residences and ministerial offices.00Exhibition: Getty Center, Los Angeles, USA (15.12.2015-01.05.2016)
French furniture and gilt bronzes : Baroque and Régence : catalogue of the J. Paul Getty Museum collection by J. Paul Getty Museum( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The collection of French decorative arts in the J. Paul Getty Museum contains more than four hundred objects, most of them dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This lavishly illustrated volume brings together forty-four objects from the Baroque and Regence periods, roughly corresponding to the reign of Louis XIV and the years immediately following his death in 1715. The selection includes veneered cabinets, commodes, and desks, carved tables and chairs, and gilt-bronze light fixtures and firedogs that exemplify the superior craftsmanship and elaborate design characteristic of the Baroque style." "Each object is described and analyzed in terms of its provenance and published history, as well as its construction, materials, and conservation. With its painstaking attention to detail, this volume is the definitive catalogue of the Getty Museum's collection of French Baroque furniture and will be of interest to scholars, conservators, and all students of French decorative arts."--BOOK JACKET
Conundrum : puzzles in the Grotesques tapestry series by Charissa Bremer-David( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The whimsical imagery of four tapestries in the permanent collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum and currently on display at the Getty Center is perplexing. Created in France at the Beauvais manufactory between 1690 and 1730, these charming hangings, unlike most French tapestries of the period, appear to be purely decorative, with no narrative thread, no theological moral, and no allegorical symbolism. They belong to a series called the Grotesques, inspired by ancient frescos discovered during the excavation of the Roman emperor Nero’s Domus Aurea, or Golden House, but the origins of their mysterious subject matter have long eluded art historians. Based on seven years of research, Conundrum: Puzzles in the Grotesques Tapestry Series reveals for the first time that the artist responsible for these designs, Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer (1636– 1699), actually incorporated dozens of motifs and vignettes from a surprising range of sources: antique statuary, Renaissance prints, Mannerist tapestry, and Baroque art, as well as contemporary seventeenth-century urban festivals, court spectacle, and theater
