Edouard Vuillard : painter-decorator : patrons and projects, 1892-1912 by Gloria Lynn Groom( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edouard Vuillard, one of the great post-impressionists, is especially loved for his small easel paintings that capture the charm and mystery of everyday life. Yet at the same time that he was making his name as an "intimist" artist, he was also creating a number of large-scale canvases, panels, and screens commissioned to decorate the homes of his patrons and friends. Infrequently exhibited, these works were separated from their original settings during Vuillard's lifetime, and they have remained a relatively unknown aspect of his oeuvre. In this lavishly illustrated study of Vuillard as decorator, Gloria Groom examines the two earliest decades of his career, a period when he produced fifty daring and important large-scale paintings as decoration. Groom discusses these early works and recreates and re-evaluates their original context, providing valuable new information about Vuillard's career, a fresh perspective on his thinking about art, and an entertaining social history of fin-de-siecle Paris. She describes not only Vuillard's large decorative projects but also the industrialists, bankers, doctors, financiers, journalists, playwrights, and foreign aristocrats who commissioned them, wealthy individuals who came from a social and economic milieu decidedly different from Vuillard's own. Drawing on his patrons' archives and memoirs, and on interviews with their surviving family members, as well as on Vuillard's own private journals, Groom evokes the circumstances and setting of each of these ambitious projects. She situates Vuillard's decorative works within the evolution of his other easel paintings, discusses the notion of "decoration" as a new painting style as well as a complement to the aesthetics of the art nouveau movement, and compares Vuillard's works as a painter-decorator to similar projects undertaken by his contemporaries
Impressionism, fashion, & modernity by Dr Gloria Groom( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the first to explore fashion as a critical aspect of modernity, one that paralleled and many times converged with the development of Impressionism, starting in the 1860s and continuing through the next two decades, when fashion attracted the foremost writers and artists of the day. Although fashionable subjects have been depicted throughout history, for many artists and writers, including Charles Baudelaire, Sté́phane Mallarmé, Émile Zola, Gustave Caillebotte, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, fashion became integral to the search for new literary and visual expression."--Jacket
Beyond the easel : decorative paintings by Bonnard, Vuillard, Denis, and Roussel, 1890-1930 by Gloria Lynn Groom( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Contributions of Artists Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Maurice Denis, and Ker Xavier Roussel to the French avant-garde of the 1890s, as members of the Nabis, are widely recognized. What is less known about these artists' careers is their extraordinary work in decorative painting - work on a large or unusual scale for private interiors. This illustrated book focuses on the many decorative works carried out by the four artists between 1890 and 1930. During these years, they moved beyond the narrow parameters of easel painting and applied their wholly untraditional aesthetic of decoration to a wide range of works for domestic interiors, from wall-size ensembles to folding screens. The cosmopolitan group of patrons who made this work possible ranged from the avant-garde circle of La Revue Blanche to prominent members of the French establishment. An examination of their role and tastes is another fascinating feature of this publication." "The book and accompanying exhibition reunite paintings that have long been dispersed, introducing contemporary viewers to a group of bold and evocative works, which had a wide-ranging, though little-recognized, influence on modern art. As the book's authors argue, the aesthetic embodied by these works indeed helped set the stage for the large, non-narrative paintings by artists as diverse as Rothko and Lichtenstein that came to dominate the avant-garde after World War II."--Jacket

Gauguin : artist as alchemist by Gloria Lynn Groom( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a creative force above and beyond his legendary work as a painter. Surveying the full scope of his career-spanning experiments in different media and formats--clay, works on paper, wood, and paint, as well as furniture and decorative friezes--this volume delves into his enduring interest in craft and applied arts, reflecting on their significance to his creative process. Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist draws on extensive new research into the artist's working methods, presenting him as a consummate craftsman--one whose transmutations of the ordinary yielded new and remarkable forms. Beautifully designed and illustrated, this book includes essays by an international team of scholars who offer a rich analysis of Gauguin's oeuvre beyond painting. By embracing other art forms, which offered fewer dominant models to guide his work, Gauguin freed himself from the burden of artistic precedent. In turn, these groundbreaking creative forays, especially in ceramics, gave new direction to his paintings. The authors' insightful emphasis on craftsmanship deepens our understanding of Gauguin's considerable achievements as a painter, draftsman, sculptor, ceramist, and printmaker within the history of modern art"--

The age of French impressionism : masterpieces from the Art Institute of Chicago by Art Institute of Chicago( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume highlights more than 100 of the Art Institute of Chicago's masterpieces, from the bold works of Édouard Manet, an important figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism, to Claude Monet's light-filled paintings, and Paul Cézanne's influential Post-Impressionist canvases. Each reproduced work is situated in terms of the era in which it was created, and collectively they exemplify the diversity of ideas and wealth of talent at work during the Impressionist period. The publication also features a chronology -- illustrated with color reproductions, archival photographs, and exhibition shots -- that documents the history and formation of the Art Institute of Chicago's collection
Pierre Bonnard : observing nature by Pierre Bonnard( Book )

Van Gogh's Bedrooms by Vincent van Gogh( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of his life, Van Gogh lived in thirty-seven different homes. In 1888 the artist moved into the only place he considered his own: his beloved "Yellow House" in Arles, France. His second-floor bedroom became a sanctuary, and it inspired him to record it in paint. Van Gogh so prized The Bedroom, which he deemed one of his best canvases, that he created two similar but distinct versions of it almost a year later, after being forced to leave his Yellow House following a nervous breakdown. In this reunion at the Art Institute of Chicago, the public has the extraordinary opportunity to see these three paintings hanging together as they did in Van Gogh's asylum studio. Presented only in Chicago, Van Gogh's Bedrooms is a momentous occasion that, along with this accompanying catalogue, sheds new light on these iconic compositions and the circumstances of their making. The exhibition is groundbreaking also because it is the first to consider the theme of home in the artist's work"--
