Most widely held works by Isabelle Cahn
Alfred Sisley by Alfred Sisley( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has never before been a major retrospective exhibition in Europe or America of Sisley's work, and there have been few serious publications. He remains therefore the least known of the Major Impressionists. Although a prolific artist, the uneven quality of his output has made it difficult to establish his particular place within the history of Impressionism. An important international exhibition (of which this is the catalogue) has been organised by the Royal Academy in London, the Musee d'Orsay in Paris and The Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore. By concentrating on only the highest quality pictures from throughout Sisley's career, his contribution to the forging of Impressionism in the 1860s, his mastery of style in the 1870s and his resolution of the problems of technique in the 1880s are all surveyed and illustrated. In addition, his individual exploration of the idea of serial painting in the 1890s is examined. The influence of earlier painters, both French and English, as well as of his contemporaries, is studied in Christopher Lloyd's essay on Sisley's stylistic development. Caroline Durand-Ruel Godfroy, great-granddaughter of the dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, discusses the relationship between the artist and his dealer. The impact of Impressionism in America and the history of early exhibitions and collectors there have been researched by William Johnston, who publishes his findings. Written by an international team of scholars, this book is a richly illustrated complement to the exhibition, exploring all its themes in detail

Pierre Bonnard : painting Arcadia by Guy Cogeval( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Bonnard is often considered a painter of idyllic scenes, replete with colour and serenity, however, this view overlooks many of the most striking aspects of Bonnard's oeuvre. Over the course of his career, Bonnard worked within - often expanding and challenging - many genres and techniqeus. Alternating between the traditions of Impressionism and the abstract visual modes of modernism, Bonnard addressed elements present within many movements in order to synthesize a world worthy of his utopian vision. As this volume reveals, Bonnard's work evolved radically over the course of his career. Includes in its pages are illustrations of well-known examples alongside rarely exhibited pieces, which represent the many thematic and stylistic compositions of Bonnard's work

Pierre Bonnard : painting Arcadia by Pierre Bonnard( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lavishly illustrated volume examines the genius of Pierre Bonnard, whose utopian vision bridged both Impressionism and modernism. Pierre Bonnard is often considered a painter of idyllic scenes, replete with color and serenity, however, this view overlooks many of the most striking aspects of Bonnard's oeuvre. Over the course of his career, Bonnard worked within--often expanding and challenging--many genres and techniques. Alternating between the traditions of Impressionism and the abstract visual modes of modernism, Bonnard addressed elements present within many movements in order to synthesize a world worthy of his utopian vision. As this exquisitely produced volume reveals, Bonnard's work evolved radically over the course of his career. Included in its pages are illustrations of well-known examples alongside rarely exhibited pieces, which represent the many thematic and stylistic compositions of Bonnard's work. The book features the murals and tapestries he created with the Nabis; his lush interiors and depictions of his wife, Marthe; his extraordinary use of rich color, brush strokes, and perspective; and his contemplative portraits. Interwoven throughout these dazzling reproductions are illuminating texts by acclaimed critics who draw on the latest research to present a multi-dimensional account of the artist. Readers of this gorgeous, authoritative book can look forward to a visual and intellectual treat in which Bonnard's status is elevated from a forerunner of modernism to one of the greatest painters of the 19th and 20th centuries."--Provided by publisher

7 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Misia Godebska (1872-1950), figure de légende de la vie artistique de la Belle Époque aux Années folles, commence à se faire connaître par son talent de pianiste. Son premier mariage en 1893 avec Thadée Natanson, le directeur de La Revue blanche, la propulse au centre d'un groupe de créateurs défendant un art symboliste et décoratif. Au sommet de son influence, elle devient l'une des femmes les plus portraiturées de son temps, posant pour Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir. Amie de Diaghilev, Nijinski, Stravinski, Cocteau, Chanel, elle finance, grâce à la fortune de son deuxième époux, Alfred Edwards, un magnat de la presse, les Ballets russes pendant plus d'une décennie. Son troisième mari, le peintre catalan José María Sert, créera de nombreux décors, en particulier pour cette compagnie. Tombant peu à peu dans l'oubli, elle disparaît en 1950. Coco Chanel la maquille et l'habille alors pour la dernière fois."--Page 4 of cover
