Vigée Le Brun by Louise-Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elisabeth Louise Vigee Le Brun (1755-1842) was one of the greatest 18th-century French painters and among the most important women artists of all time. Celebrated for her expressive portraits of French royalty and aristocracy, especially of her patron and friend Marie Antoinette, she exemplified artistic success and personal resourcefulness in an age when women were rarely allowed either. Forced to flee France during the Revolution, Le Brun traveled throughout Europe for sixteen years, painting royal and noble sitters in the courts of Naples, Russia, Austria, Poland, and Germany. She returned to France in 1805, under the reign of Emperor Napoleon I, where her artistic career continued to flourish. Alongside 85 of her finest paintings and drawings from international museums and collections, this handsome volume details Vigee Le Brun's story, portraying a talented and intelligent artist who was able to negotiate a shifting political and geographic landscape. Providing further context for the life of this extraordinary individual, essays by international experts address topics such as her travels in exile and the position of women artists in the Salons

Among the artists represented are many of the major figures of this magnificent period of French art, including Le Brun, Lemoine, Cochin, Claude-Joseph, Horace Vernet, Jean-Baptiste Isabey, Paul Delaroche, and Jacques-Louis David, whose splendid compositional study for his Oath of the Tennis Court, the event that marked the beginning of the French Revolution, is of particular interest"--Publisher

Ce catalogue est publié à l'occasion de l'exposition rétrospective présentée au Grand Palais, Paris, du 23 septembre 2015 au 11 janvier 2016.00Du règne de Louis XV à celui de Louis-Philippe, Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun s'est imposée comme l'une des artistes majeures de sa génération. Pour la première fois, elle fait l'objet d'une rétrospective dans son pays natal. L'exposition et son catalogue mettent en évidence les multiples facettes de sa personnalité et de son parcours. À travers toute l'Europe, pendant l'une des périodes les plus mouvementées et orageuses de l'histoire européenne, l'artiste a affiché non seulement son ambition professionnelle et sociale et sa personnalité foncièrement optimiste, mais également sa volonté d'outrepasser les contraintes imposées aux femmes artistes, le dialogue qu'elle sut entretenir avec les maîtres anciens et modernes, sa maîtrise de la science des couleurs et son invention d'un répertoire de poses et de costumes qui assura son succès. Réunissant plus de cent cinquante oeuvres, techniques, supports et dimensions confondus, cet hommage permet de découvrir une quintessence de l'oeuvre de Vigée Le Brun

Pastels in the Musée du Louvre : 17th and 18th centuries by Xavier Salmon( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Musée du Louvre boasts an exceptional collection of 17th- and 18th-century European pastels. Due to their fragility, there have been scant opportunities to view and learn from these spectacular artworks. This in-depth examination of the collection, reproduced here for the first time in color, delves into their history and how they were created. Produced primarily during the reigns of Louis XV and Louis XVI, the works--whose beautiful delicacy has been likened to the powder covering the wings of a butterfly--offer insights into society during the period of the Enlightenment. Featured artists include Rosalba Carriera, Maurice Quentin de La Tour, Jean-Baptiste Perronneau, Jean tienne Liotard, Jean-Marc Nattier, and lisabeth Louise Vigee Le Brun, as well as lesser-known masters such as Marie-Suzanne Giroust, Ad la de Labille-Guirard, Joseph Bose, and Joseph Ducreux.
