Paris in the age of Impressionism : masterworks from the Musée d'Orsay by David A Brenneman( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris in the Age of Impressionism captures the excitement of late nineteenth-century Paris as an explosion of new ideas made the city the capital of the art world. Paris was home not only to the Impressionists but also to radical colorists, innovative designers, and thoughtful painters who recorded modern life in painstaking detail. Paris in the Age of Impressionism includes more than a hundred superb objects from all areas of the Musée d'Orsay's vast collections, including paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, works on paper, and photographs. Paris becomes a great modern city in paintings by Monet and Caillebotte and in outstanding turn-of-the-century photographs. Portraits and scenes by Manet, Monet, Renoir, Tissot, and Fantin-Latour give a glimpse of Parisian high society. Fascinating designs for the Opéra and other historic performance spaces show Paris as a city of grand theaters. The dark side of the City of Light is revealed in paintings by Degas, Caillebotte, and Lautrec and in sculpture by Dalou. The construction and celebration of the Eiffel Tower is recalled in vintage photographs, designs, lithographs, and memorabilia. The stylistic revolution of Art Nouveau is evoked in the designs of Lalique and Gallé. The great surge of the avant-garde is signaled in works by van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, Rodin, and Rousseau. Paris in the Age of Impressionism was on view at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, from November 23, 2002, through March 16, 2003, and at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, from April 6 through June 29, 2003. -- from dust jacket

Degas and America : the early collectors by Ann Dumas( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Degas and America: The Early Collectors is organized by Ann Dumas and David Brenneman. The catalogue includes several illustrated essays. Ann Dumas details the early awareness of Degas in America ... the first exhibitions and purchases, the movement of works around the country, the first collectors, the development of the American taste for the Frenchman's art. Rebecca Rabinow writes of Louisine Havemeyer, the first great American collector of Degas, who was led by her friend Mary Cassatt to begin amassing a collection that was bequeathed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. David Brenneman surveys the critical response to first appearances of art by Degas in the United States, noting the generally warm acceptance and admiring attention earned by Degas. Richard Kendall contributes an essay on the impact of Degas's art and sensibility upon American artists, especially painters of the Ashcan generation and members of The Eight. Valerie Fletcher writes a short overview of the problematic subject of Degas's sculpture; almost none of the sculpture was intended for public viewing, yet it was warmly embraced by American collectors and museums, whose holdings now form the best representation of Degas's work in this medium."--Jacket

Salvador Dalí : the late work by Salvador Dalí( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handsomely illustrated volume focuses on Dali's output after 1940, which drew inspiration from both the Old Masters and the contemporary world. Beginning in the late 1930s with the transition from Dali's well-known Surrealist canvases to the classicism he announced in 1941, the volume traces the artist's development of "nuclear mysticism" in the 1950s, his enduring interest in science, optical effects, and illusionism, his commercial ventures (which predate and inspired such efforts by Andy Warhol), his collaborations with photographer Philippe Halsman (and his brief forays into Hollywood), and visits the two major repositories of his work--the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Spain, and the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. --Book Jacket
