Most widely held works by Laurence Des Cars
Edward Burne-Jones, Victorian artist-dreamer by Stephen Wildman( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pupil of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and a protege of John Ruskin, Burne-Jones belonged to the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, creating a narrative style of romantic symbolism steeped in medieval legend and fused with the influence of Italian Renaissance masters that was to have widespread influence on both British and European art. Within the sophisticated culture of the late Victorian period, Burne-Jones's star rose rapidly, and by the 1880s he had become the establishment artist par excellence, one of the most admired and sought-after painters in Europe
Nineteenth century French art : from Romanticism to Impressionism, post-Impressionism and Art Nouveau by Sébastien Allard( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the nineteenth century, France experienced an unprecedented growth in the visual arts, and Paris was its center. French art became a universally accepted benchmark, spreading its many ground-breaking developments -- the radicalism of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, the daring of Art Nouveau, and the innovations of Haussman's new urban landscape -- far beyond its borders, and in return receiving numerous influences from broad. During this extraordinary rich and productive period, French art also benefited from the synthesis of the past with the innovations of the present, resulting in an artistic output whose legacy is still being felt today. This chronological history, richly illustrated and recounted by experts from France's preeminent museums, charts the growth of this fruitful -- and revolutionary -- period in the history of world art. -- From publisher's description
The pre-Raphaelites : romance and realism by Laurence Des Cars( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spectacular art of Jean-Léon Gérôme : 1824-1904 by Jean Léon Gérôme( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gérôme was one of the most famous artists of his day, yet throughout his career he was the object of polemical debate and harsh criticism. Long stigmatized as the embodiment of sterile academicism, he is now considered to be one of the greatest painters of the nineteenth century. Gérôme's interest in Antiquity, his theatrical approach to history painting, and his complex relationships with the Orient and with the new medium of photography all contributed to his highly inventive imagery. Acquired by American collectors at an early date, Gérôme's oeuvre fired the new world's historical imagination and even inspired its favorite medium, the movies. This catalogue traces Gérôme's unique career and features his major works--from history paintings to polychrome sculptures--thereby casting the nineteenth century in a new light."--Page 4 of cover

Apollinaire : le regard du poète by Laurence Des Cars( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in French and Undetermined and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guillaume Apollinaire fut actif comme critique d'art essentiellement entre 1902 et 1918. Cette large quinzaine d'années, qui peut sembler réduite dans ses bornes chronologiques, va cependant concentrer un foisonnement prodigieux d'écoles, de manifestes, de tentatives et de découvertes dans le domaine des arts. La personnalité d'Apollinaire, sa sensibilité artistique, son insatiable curiosité, font de lui un témoin, un acteur et un passeur privilégié des bouleversements du début du XXe siècle. Grand découvreur de l'art de son temps, Apollinaire avait «situé une fois pour toutes la démarche d'un Matisse, d'un Derain, d'un Picasso, d'un Chirico (...) au moyen d'instruments d'arpentage mental comme on en avait plus vu depuis Baudelaire», déclarait Breton en 1952

Louvre-Abu Dhabi : naissance d'un musée by Laurence Des Cars( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in French and Italian and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Appelé à lever un coin du voile sur ses collections en avril 2013, le musée du Louvre Abu Dhabi suscite déjà une grande curiosité. Si l'architecture imaginée par Jean Nouvel pour l'abriter est connue, ce livre, première publication à lui être consacrée, permet de découvrir l'esprit universel qui préside à la naissance de ce nouveau musée. C'est notamment à travers la collection qui se constitue aujourd'hui qu'on peut le mieux sentir et saisir cet esprit, grâce aux premières acquisitions réunies et présentées de façon inédite dans cet ouvrage. En effet, les 300 oeuvres reproduites, d'une qualité exceptionnelle, font dialoguer les différentes civilisations du monde et leurs expressions artistiques, des plus immémoriales aux plus actuelles, de l'archéologie à l'art contemporain. Ainsi l'Égypte ancienne et l'art gréco-romain côtoient-ils des ensembles d'art islamique et la grande statuaire d'Asie, des oeuvres de Bellini, Murillo, Manet ou encore Mondrian, ainsi que des objets d'art de la Renaissance européenne."
Jean-Léon Gérôme, 1824-1904 : l'histoire en spectacle : [exposition, Los Angeles, The J. Paul Getty Museum, 15 juin-12 septembre 2010 ; Paris, Musée d'Orsay, 19 octobre 2010-23 janvier 2011 ; Madrid, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, 1er mars-22 mai 2011] by Musée d'Orsay( Book )

Edouard Vuillard by Guy Cogeval( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and French and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The long and illustrious career of Edouard Vuillard spans the fin-de-siecle and the first four decades of the twentieth century, during which time the French painter, printmaker, and photographer created an extraordinary body of work. This is the first volume to explore Vuillard's rich and varied career in its totality, presenting nearly 350 works that demonstrate the full range of his subject matter and reveal both the public and private sides of this quintessentially Parisian artist." "In a series of illustrated essays and catalogue entries, the authors explore Vuillard's complex and diverse artistic development, beginning with his academic training in Paris in the late 1880s and the innovative Nabi paintings of the 1890s for which he is best known, including his provocative, disquieting middle-class interiors and his work associated with the avant-garde theatre. The authors also examine Vuillard's splendid but lesser known large-scale decorations, his luminous landscapes, and the elegant portraits from the last decades of his career. In addition to paintings, the volume includes a substantial selection of drawings and graphics, together with a large group of striking photographs by the artist, many of which are published here for the first time." "This illustrated catalogue accompanies the most comprehensive exhibition ever devoted to the work of Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940). The exhibition opens at the National Gallery of Art in Washington and travels to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais in Paris, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London."--Jacket
Gut - wahr - schön : Meisterwerke des Pariser Salons aus dem Musée d’Orsay by Musée d'Orsay( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im 19. Jahrhundert war der jährliche 'Salon de Paris' die bedeutendste Ausstellung des internationalen Kunbstbetriebs und ein gesellschaftliches Ereignis par excellence. Akademie und Publikum fanden sich auf dieser Leistungsschau des verfeinerten Geschmacks zusammen und feierten ein Schönheitsideal, das der Menschheit den Weg zum Wahren, Schönen und Guten weisen sollte.0Der 'Salon' hatte in Frankreich bereits eine lange Tradition, bevor er sich um die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts als Institution etablieren konnte, die mit Alleinanspruch über alles gebot, was für Kunst, Künstler und ihr Publikum wichtig sein musste. Die Historienmalerei mit ihren mythologischen, biblischen und Geschichte und Geschichten erzählenden Sujets war das Faszinosum der Zeit und das riesige 'Palais de l?Industrie' in Paris der Ort, an dem die Projektionen von Schönheit und Moral die Reize des Sehens zur Sensation werden ließen. Der Band lässt mit Opulenz und Einfühlungsvermögen eine Zeit auferstehen, die ihre Orientierung im Bewußtsein kultureller Überlegenheit zu finden hoffte.00Exhibition: Kunsthalle München, Germany (22.09.2017-28.01.2018)

Le Louvre Abu Dhabi, nouveau musée universel? by Charlotte Chastel-Rousseau( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in French and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Résumé éditeur : "Fondé en mars 2007 par la signature d'un accord intergouvernemental liant la France et les Émirats Arabes Unis, le Louvre Abu Dhabi se conçoit, en écho à la fondation du Louvre, comme le premier musée universel dans le monde arabe. Ce geste culturel et diplomatique fort et singulier appelle à interroger la notion même d'universalisme, marquée par l'esprit des Lumières qui avait présidé à la création du Museum central au Louvre et teintée d'un occidentalisme conquérant. La volonté de créer un Louvre Abu Dhabi étant venue des Émirats eux-mêmes, sa naissance permet une analyse nouvelle. Issu de la réflexion initiée lors de la journée d'études organisée au musée du Louvre le 15 octobre 2011, cet ouvrage réunit des essais historiques et prospectifs sur un sujet historique qui connaît aujourd'hui une actualité manifeste."
