Mind's eye : masterworks on paper from David to Cézanne by O Meslay( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of European art from the French Revolution to the First World War, Mind's Eye encompasses 116 works on paper in various media by seventy artists. These works range from quick sketches and working drawings to cartoons for large murals and highly finished masterpieces. Among the featured artists are such recognizable names as Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cezanne, Jacques-Louis David, Edgar Degas, Eugene Delacroix, Theodore Gericault, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Georges Seurat. Also included are never-before-published works by accomplished yet lesser-known artists, such as Albert Anker, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Adolf Hiremy-Hirschl, Fernand Khnopff, Frantisek Kupka, and Simeon Solomon. Noted international specialists in the field address the working methods of these artists and the aesthetic beauty of their drawings and watercolours, and offer focused studies on artists, regions, schools and themes. By simultaneously drawing attention to overlooked works and reexamining those produced by famous artists, this catalogue examines the overall effect of their cumulative contributions from a fresh, modern perspective.0Exhibition: Dallas Museum of Art, USA (29.6.-26.10.2014)
Hotel Texas : an art exhibition for the President and Mrs. John F. Kennedy by Olivier Meslay( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The events associated with John F. Kennedy's death are etched into our nation's memory. This fascinating book tells a less familiar part of the story, about a special art exhibition organized by a group of Fort Worth citizens. On November 21, 1963, the Kennedys arrived in Fort Worth around midnight, making their way to Suite 850 of the Hotel Texas. There, installed in their honor, was an intimate exhibition that included works by Monet, Van Gogh, Marin, Eakins, Feininger, and Picasso. Due to the late hour, it was not until the following morning that the couple viewed the exhibition and phoned one of the principal organizers, Ruth Carter Johnson, to offer thanks. Mrs. Kennedy indicated that she wished she could stay longer to admire the beautiful works. The couple was due to depart for Dallas, and the rest is history. This volume reunites the works in this exhibition for the first time and features some previously unpublished images of the hotel room. Essays examine this exhibition from several angles: anecdotal, analytical, cultural, and historical, and include discussions of what the local citizens wished to convey to their distinguished viewers"

Un jeu d'index (noms d'artistes, titres des œuvres et provenances : commanditaires, collectionneurs, marchands et donateurs) fait de cet ouvrage un instrument indispensable pour la recherche, en particulier pour ce qui concerne l'histoire des ventes, des collections et du goût

Marc Chagall : l'épaisseur des rêves by Marc Chagall( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marc Chagall (1887-1985) a développé essentiellement son expérimentation de la céramique et de la sculpture dans les années du retour en France, après la Libération. À cette époque, l'inscription de l'oeuvre dans la terre "si lumineuse" de Vallauris à partir de 1949 et l'attention portée à l'art roman, support formel du riche travail de la pierre entrepris alors par l'artiste, sont des signes importants d'une remise en question. Plus largement, la problématique du volume semble être une question fondamentale et récurrente chez Chagall, que ce soit dans ses compositions peintes si complexes qu'elles en sont plus idéales que réalistes, que dans l'expérience très riche et marquante des arts de la scène dès l'aventure du Théâtre d'art juif de Moscou en 1919-1921. La troisième dimension est aussi présente dans le traitement sculptural des silhouettes, premières oeuvres marquées par le cubisme, dans la construction de volumes pétris dans la terre ou dégagés de la pierre et, à la fin de sa vie, dans les collages puissants de l'oeuvre ultime."--Page 4 of cover
