La belle noiseuse by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

39 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A painter suffering artistic burnout is inspired by his meeting with Marianne at his Languedoc villa. She is persuaded to pose for him as he attempts to recover the 'masterpiece' he had abandoned ten years earlier. The film becomes a playing out of the process of creation (of a painting/a film), a battle of wills between the artist and his model, the artist's wife (who has been his model) and Marianne's lover. This package contains two versions of the film both prepared by Rivette - the four-hour version more in the nature of a performance piece, which explains the process in exhaustive detail (including the hand of an actual artist, Bernhard Dufour, at work) while the two-hour version (minus Dufour's hand) is brisker, more in the nature of a short story, which provides a different perspective on the relationships

L'épopée de la famille Vilmorin commence avant la Révolution française. Philippe de Vilmorin, fils d agriculteur, se passionne pour les plantes et invente en plein Paris le commerce scientifique des graines. Pendant plus de 200 ans et sur six générations, la famille est à la pointe de la recherche agronomique et horticole en France. Pour leurs travaux et par passion pour les végétaux, les Vilmorin constituent un herbier étonnant, le seul du genre arrivé jusqu'à nous. Cet herbier témoigne de l activité industrielle et scientifique des Vilmorin autour de la sélection des semences.Il a bien failli disparaître à la fin du siècle dernier mais l'enthousiasme des Verriérois l'a sorti de l anonymat. La commune de Verrières-le-Buisson, terre des Vilmorin de 1815 à 1966, s est attachée à valoriser ce patrimoine exceptionnel. En 2006, « l'herbier Roger de Vilmorin » qui comprend quelque 50 000 planches botaniques - dont un herbier dédié à Parmentier, une importante collection de blés, des aquarelles du Japon, un album d'iconographie de légumes...a été classé Monument historique. Ce livre raconte la contribution exceptionnelle des Vilmorin à l amélioration des plantes comestibles et d'ornement. Il s appuie sur la richesse de cet herbier dont les planches ont, pour la première fois, été photographiées. Sa sortie coïncide avec le 200e anniversaire de l installation de la famille de Vilmorin à Verrièresle-Buisson et avec le 10e anniversaire de son classement Monument historique
