Antoine Watteau (1684 1721) produced some of the most seductive drawings in Western art. This book, published to accompany an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, reproduces his finest examples, revealing the delicacy and freedom of execution that so impressed early commentators and had such a profound effect on subsequent generations of artists, notably François Boucher and Jean Honore; Fragonard. Well known art historians Pierre Rosenberg and Louis Antoine Prat examine these masterly studies, focusing on the artist's development as a draftsman, the techniques that he perfected, and the fascinating role that drawing played in his work. The illustrations, which include recently discovered works, are superbly reproduced

"The work of Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825), along with that of Nicolas Poussin and Paul Cezanne, probably represents one of the three great turning points in the evolution of French art. A man of the Enlightenment but equally nurtured by the moral examples of classical literature, he altered the course of the pictorial school of his day, and more than any other stands for the particular form of a "return to order" that characterises French Neoclassicism." "Draughtsmanship was instrumental in that evolution; beholding antique ruins for the first time during his two stays in Rome, David constantly drew in his sketchbooks and albums, inventing an original graphic style, accurate and sharp. He was equally rigorous in the preparatory drawings for his great pre-Revolutionary compositions (The Oath of the Horatii, Brutus), as, subsequently, in the huge scenographies dedicated to Napoleon's epic exploits." "The Louvre holds the most important collection of David's drawings in the world, with two of the twelve Roman albums, in which the artist assembled his travel recollections, as well as eight sketchbooks, where, page after page, we can follow the genesis of such famous compositions as The Sacre or The Distribution of the Eagle Standards. Outstanding among the individual drawings is the most famous icon of the Revolutionary period, the large drawing for The Oath of the Jeu de Paume, a valuable testimony of a project that was never carried out, along with utterly candid studies for portraits and figures that are evidence of the political evolution of a painter who was also a committed actor in the history of his time."--BOOK JACKET

Le dessin français au XIXe siècle by Louis-Antoine Prat( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette synthèse recouvre l'ensemble d'une époque qui est sans doute la plus brillante de l'histoire du dessin français. C'est le temps où les génies de l'art graphique semblent se succéder naturellement. David, Ingres, Delacroix, Seurat, Cézanne font du XIXe siècle un véritable âge d'or du dessin français. L'ouvrage, qui comprend 1500 reproductions, est destiné autant aux étudiants en histoire de l'art qu'aux amateurs, collectionneurs et simples curieux. Il permet de suivre l'évolution d'une pratique, celle du dessin, qui commande les autres arts : peinture, sculpture, architecture ; il évoque aussi bien les artistes voyageurs que les décorateurs des palais et des églises, s'attache aux problèmes particuliers que sont l'histoire des collections, les attributions, les faux

Le dessin français au XVIIe siècle by Louis-Antoine Prat( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Après l'ouvrage retraçant l'évolution du dessin français au XIXe siècle (publié en 2011), cette nouvelle synthèse du même auteur, professeur à l'École du Louvre, est consacrée à l'histoire du dessin français au XVIIe siècle, une période qui peut être comparée au Siècle d'or espagnol ou hollandais. En effet, la variété des artistes, la multiplicité des tendances, ainsi que celle des foyers, parisiens comme provinciaux, concourent à rendre passionnant un examen étendu de l'activité graphique des maîtres français, de Jacques Callot à Charles Le Brun et au-delà, en une approche spécifique d'une époque de l'histoire du dessin dont il n'existait jusqu'alors aucune synthèse. Nourri des plus récentes découvertes, qu'il s'agisse de publications, de réapparitions ou de réattributions d'œuvres (continuelles à mesure que les connaissances progressent), ce texte de près de sept cents pages illustré de mille cinq cents dessins devrait rencontrer un large public de passionnés et de connaisseurs, d'étudiants et de simples amateurs
Théodore Chassériau 1819-1856 : dessins conservés en dehors du Louvre by Louis-Antoine Prat( Book )

Chassériau, 1819-1856, un autre romantisme : actes du colloque organisé par le Musée du Louvre le 16 mars 2002( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in French and English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Portraitiste de Lacordaire et de Tocqueville, peintre de l'Algérie, Théodore Chassériau se distingue des peintres romantiques de son temps. Souvent catalogué parmi les indécis de l'école moderne regroupant les artistes se situant entre Ingres et Delacroix, il possède pourtant sa poétique propre, un intérêt prononcé pour l'autre et pour les questions politiques et sociales
