Artists and amateurs : etching in 18th-century France by Perrin Stein( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the eighteenth century, a large number of artists-painters, sculptors, draftsmen, and amateurs-experimented with etching, a highly accessible printmaking technique akin to drawing. Some, like Antoine Watteau and François Boucher, encountered the process within the thriving commerce of the Paris print market. Others, like Jean-Honoré Fragonard and Hubert Robert, experimented with the technique during their student years in Rome. Over the course of the century, the free and improvisational aesthetic of the etching process increasingly was embraced, and French artists looked to seventeenth-century masters, such as Rembrandt in the north, and Salvator Rosa and Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione to the south, for inspiration. The expressive potential of the technique was also explored in a more experimental manner by artists like Gabriel de Saint-Aubin and Louis Jean Desprez, who harnessed the inky tonalities of the medium to their personal and idiosyncratic vision"--The Metropolitan Museum of Art website

Fragonard : drawing triumphant : works from New York collections by Perrin Stein( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806) was a virtuoso draftsman whose works on paper count among the significant achievements of his time. This book focuses on the role of drawing in Fragonard's creative process and provides a modern reevaluation of his graphic work, while showcasing his mastery and experimentation with drawing in a range of media. Unlike many old master painters, who used drawings primarily as preparatory tools, Fragonard explored their potential as works of art in their own right. The 100 works featured in this publication include well-loved masterpieces, new discoveries, and works that have been long out of the public eye, illuminating the career of a ceaselessly inventive artist whose draftsmanship was at the core of his remarkable body of work."--Publisher's description
French drawings from the British Museum : Clouet to Seurat by Perrin Stein( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michelangelo was one of the most creative and admired artists of the Italian Renaissance, famous for his work as a sculptor, painter, architect and poet. But his genius can only truly be appreciated outside Italy through his work as a draughtsman. This book, written to accompany a major exhibition, combines the finest works from three outstanding collections of his drawings in the British Museum, London, the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and the Teyler Museum, Haarlem, to tell the story of Michelangelo's extraordinarily long and active life." "An introductory chapter discusses Michelangelo's contemporary fame, his training and choice of drawing technique, and the role of drawing in the genesis of his works. The following chapters move chronologically through the important projects that dominated his long career, illustrating how his ideas evolved in the creation of his most celebrated works, including the Sistine Chapel ceiling, the Last Judgement and the Medici chapel in Florence. The sequences of drawings that he developed give an unparalleled insight into Michelangelo's creative process, revealing how the perfection of the finished piece was arrived at only after detailed preparation. Through these accompanying drawings - from sketchy first ideas to exquisitely refined and sensual studies of individual figures - the full spectrum of his artistic activities is revealed." "From pen studies made when Michelangelo was in his early twenties to the visionary Crucifixion scenes carried out shortly before his death over six decades later, this book testifies to the fundamental importance of drawing in the work of this great Renaissance master."--Jacket
Exoticism as metaphor : "turquerie" in eighteenth-century French art by Perrin Stein( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first concentration of Turkish subject works were produced at the time of the 1721 Ottoman embassy to Paris. Images created around the time of the visit by Charles Parrocel and others are read in the context of French foreign policy and evolving attitudes towards colonialism. The turquerie as a true genre subject emerged in the mid 1730s with Carle Van Loo's ambitious portrait pendants of himself and his wife "a la turque". Feeding the taste for portraits in Turkish dress, Madame de Pompadour's commission of her own portrait as sultana uses the analogy of Ottoman court structure to publicize and strengthen her position in the court of Louis XV. Such associations proved short-lived, however, in the unstable political environment of the late ancien regime. Twenty years later, critics used Amedee Van Loo's immense Costume Turc tapestry cartoons to critique the idle luxury of the court and of Madame du Barry, their alleged patron, in particular. By the last quarter of the century, the harem was seen less as a setting for romantic fantasy and increasingly as a site of commerce in unwilling female slaves, casting light on tensions and anxieties within contemporary French society relating both to debates on slavery and colonialism as well as to inequities of power closer to home
