Portraits by Ingres : image of an epoch by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Portraits by Ingres: Image of an Epoch, published in conjunction with an exhibition at The National Gallery, London, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, is the first comprehensive study of these nineteenth-century masterpieces." "This volume unites texts by American and European scholars with the most complete visual presentation ever of Ingres's portraits. The biographical essays and the catalogue entries provide fresh insights based on examination and interpretation of original correspondence, contemporary reviews, and newly discovered documents; supplementing these are an introduction that discusses Ingres's sources of inspiration, essays on the critical reception of the portraits and on the artist's use of assistants, and a detailed illustrated chronology."--BOOK JACKET

Courbet by Charles Léger( Book )

18 editions published in 1947 in 4 languages and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the great French realist painter Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) began his career in the 1840s, grand historical, mythological, and biblical themes were still felt to be the most fitting subjects for ambitious painting. Yet Courbet, a dynamic and boundlessly self-confident man, proud of his rural origins and guided by his strong republican beliefs, rejected these subjects as too remote from actual experience. Instead, he depicted scenes of everyday life, particularly among the peasants and the working class, with a naturalism then considered shocking. His paint handling was correspondingly direct: disdaining the "licked finish" of the academic painters, he laid on his colors boldly, often with a palette knife as well as a brush. And Courbet's vision was as expansive as it was daring: while his reputation is founded on the heroically scaled realist masterworks A Burial at Ornans and The Painter's Studio, he also executed many excellent nudes (including the notoriously explicit Origin of the World), portraits and self-portraits, landscapes, marines, and even still lifes. This lucidly written monograph from noted art historian Ségolène Le Men provides a new understanding of how Courbet's life and milieu shaped his art. Le Men organizes her text both chronologically and thematically: while the five chapters correspond to the successive phases of Courbet's career, each comprises several subsections that discuss individual aspects of his oeuvre. This hybrid approach allows Le Men to present a multifaceted view of Courbet's artistic achievements, exploring their relation to the politics, the literature, the popular imagery, and even the music of his time. With more than three hundred stunning color illustrations, including all of Courbet's most important paintings and many fine examples of his draftsmanship, this is the definitive study of a painter whose spirited pursuit of an independent aesthetic path has led many critics to call him "the first modern artist."
