Birth of Impressionism : masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay by Guy Cogeval( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a collection of one hundred works by the masters of nineteenth-century French painting telling the story of the Impressionist movement that changed the way artists view the world and the way the world views art. This book tells the story of the beloved Impressionist movement, focusing on the tumultuous period of the 1860s and 1870s and the emergence of the New Painting out of the Paris Salon. Reproductions of French painting masterpieces from the canvases of Bouguereau to the landscapes and peasant scenes of Millet and Courbet set the stage for a rich visual narrative that recounts the incubation and evolution of the Impressionist movement. The range of subject matter and techniques reflects the stylistic diversity of the artists who were part of this revolution. This work includes paintings by Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Cezanne, Morisot, and Degas, among others. The paintings have been selected and thematically grouped to prompt discussion of Impressionism's many facets, including France's turbulent social and political climate at the time, the state-run Salon system and the artistic rivalries it fostered, and aspects of daily life during the Belle Epoque
Théodore Chassériau, 1819-1856 : the unknown romantic by Stéphane Guégan( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theodore Chasseriau was one of the most sensual and intellectual painters of his time. A pupil and precocious disciple of Ingres, he also fell under the influence of Delacroix, and he left his mark on both the second generation of Romantic artists and their Symbolist successors. Although his works fuse Ingres's linear precision with the lush colour and Romantic exoticism of Delacroix, they escape easy stylistic classification. His oeuvre includes Orientalist and religious paintings, scenes from Antiquity, and portraits, but he is best known for his ambitious decorative compositions for the churches of Paris and for the Cour des Comptes in the Palais d'Orsay. This volume presents more than 250 of Chasseriau's paintings, drawings and prints. The texts of the essays and entries, as well as the extensive chronology, focus on the artist's personality, his professional and social milieu, and on the works themselves, thus providing an in-depth view of the state of the arts in France in the mid-19th century."
Vigée Le Brun by Louise-Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elisabeth Louise Vigee Le Brun (1755-1842) was one of the greatest 18th-century French painters and among the most important women artists of all time. Celebrated for her expressive portraits of French royalty and aristocracy, especially of her patron and friend Marie Antoinette, she exemplified artistic success and personal resourcefulness in an age when women were rarely allowed either. Forced to flee France during the Revolution, Le Brun traveled throughout Europe for sixteen years, painting royal and noble sitters in the courts of Naples, Russia, Austria, Poland, and Germany. She returned to France in 1805, under the reign of Emperor Napoleon I, where her artistic career continued to flourish. Alongside 85 of her finest paintings and drawings from international museums and collections, this handsome volume details Vigee Le Brun's story, portraying a talented and intelligent artist who was able to negotiate a shifting political and geographic landscape. Providing further context for the life of this extraordinary individual, essays by international experts address topics such as her travels in exile and the position of women artists in the Salons

In this volume, examples of Post-Impressionism from one of the world's premier art museums provide an overview of innovations ushered in by the popular movement.

Focusing on the decades around 1900, this publication presents late Impressionist landmarks by Monet and Renoir; early modern masterpieces by Cezanne, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Van Gogh; and avant-garde canvases by the Nabis painters Denis, Bonnard, and Vuillard.

Toulouse-Lautrec : Paris & the Moulin Rouge by Jane Kinsman( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toulouse-Lautrec will examine the artist's abilities as an acute observer of Parisian life, his skill as a draughtsman, his experimentation in composition and the brilliance of his technical execution in all media. The exhibition will shed new light on Toulouse-Lautrec through an examination of his involvement in Parisian culture; the high life and the low life. The exhibition will trace Toulouse-Lautrec's career from his earliest works to his extraordinary depictions of the Paris social scene, the dance halls, the café-concerts, the brothels and theatres. This he did in an insightful way, capturing the essence of his Parisian characters and haunts. Toulouse-Lautrec's subject matter was to become thoroughly modern and he became an influential figure in the evolution of the art of the twentieth century."--Gallery website
Théophile Gautier by Stéphane Guégan( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ingres : erotic drawings by Stéphane Guégan( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ingres, described by Baudelaire as a painter of "profound sensual delights," has not always been acknowledged as such by the art world. Ingres was also an artist of great erotic intensity and raw sexuality - and these unsuspected facets of his oeuvre are explored here in depth and in detail." "This handful of hidden treasures, shocking enough in their time to be banished from polite society, today reward a thorough examination that opens our eyes to a new and enlightening perspective on Ingres."--Jacket
Manet : the man who invented modernity by Édouard Manet( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Obviously unique, erotic and political, highly autobiographical, at times ironic, and always turned toward the public space, Manet's art was also playful. To gamble, to take risks, and to collect the winnings if possible, all three things were vital to this man of great ambition. The former sailor navigated by sight, always in open waters. No retreat, no safe haven, no evasion. Manet feared his doubts less than he feared failure and routine. To become tied down to some formula or particular genre would have been, for him, the worst way of giving up. A revolutionary, certainly, a history painter in his own way, he was above all a Salon painter, ready to do battle with the jury and the public so as to impose the Modern into great art."--Page 4 of cover

Fantin-Latour, Manet, Baudelaire : l'hommage à Delacroix by Stéphane Guégan( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in French and English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was 1863: the year Manet sparked a scandal with his Déjeuner sur l'herbe, and the year of Delacroix's death. Shocked by the lack of official recognition, for the next Salon, Fantin-Latour created his Hommage à Delacroix. This seminal painting brought together a generation of innovative artists and critics, such as Baudelaire, around a portrait of the dead master. The exhibition traces the journey of the painting and tells the story of the artistic fraternity through other portraits of the artists shown in the painting and the works tying them to Delacroix's legacy

Portraitiste de Lacordaire et de Tocqueville, peintre de l'Algérie, Théodore Chassériau se distingue des peintres romantiques de son temps. Souvent catalogué parmi les indécis de l'école moderne regroupant les artistes se situant entre Ingres et Delacroix, il possède pourtant sa poétique propre, un intérêt prononcé pour l'autre et pour les questions politiques et sociales
