David to Delacroix : the rise of romantic mythology by Dorothy Johnson( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this illustrated study of intellectual and art history, the author explores the representation of classical myths by renowned French artists in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, demonstrating the extraordinary influence of the natural sciences and psychology on artistic depiction of myth. Highlighting the work of major painters such as David, Girodet, Gerard, Ingres, and Delacroix and sculptors such as Houdon and Pajou, this book reveals how these artists offered innovative reinterpretations of myth while incorporating contemporaneous and revolutionary discoveries in the disciplines of anatomy, biology, physiology, psychology, and medicine. The interplay among these disciplines, the author argues, led to a re-examination by visual artists of the historical and intellectual structures of myth, its social and psychological dimensions, and its construction as a vital means of understanding the self and the individual's role in society. This confluence is studied here, and each chapter includes examples chosen from the vast number of mythological representations of the period. While focused on mythical subjects, French Romantic artists, the author argues, were creating increasingly modern modes of interpreting and meditating on culture and the human condition.-- From publisher's description

Jacques-Louis David's painting of a theme related to the Odyssey is one of his last brilliant mythological works.

David d'Angers : sculptural communication in the age of romanticism by Jacques De Caso( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his pediment for the Pantheon, a sculptural work depicting the many citizens who advanced the revolutionary cause in France, Pierre-Jean David d'Angers (1788-1856) celebrated the heroism of the individual while perpetuating a mythology of the modern world. Reassessing the art of David d'Angers, Jacques de Caso not only presents him as a central figure of French Romanticism, but also explores his role in shaping the artistic and social directions of French sculpture during this period. The author shows how David's ardent Republicanism, which resulted from profound reflections on political, social and cultural realities as well as personal ideals, was expressed in monumental sculpted works that often created scandal and controversy. A prolific writer, David maintained ties with famous Romantic poets, novelists, critics, and philosophers and was praised by Delacroix for his literary production. De Caso offers the first English translations of his writings, including the newly discovered correspondence between David and the German physician and painter Carl Gustav Carus, to elucidate the sculptor's complex ideas concerning artistic expression and political responsibility. While examining groups of David's sculpted works within their intellectual, aesthetic, and cultural contexts, he reveals how the system of signs inherent in public sculpture enabled it to become a primary mode of communication during the Romantic period

David after David : essays on the later work by Valérie Bajou-Charpentreau( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825), the most celebrated painter of his era, was appointed court painter to Napoleon in 1804 and exiled to Brussels in 1816. This important book - based on the proceedings of an international symposium - explores David's grand projects of the Empire period and the often mysterious works produced in his last years as a political exile. David after David features twenty-one essays by leading art historians that discuss these later works - which include innovative portraits as well as paintings and drawings that address the opposing themes of the antique and modern - in the aesthetic, political, and social contexts of their production and reception. The book also draws upon recently discovered letters the artist wrote in exile and provides fascinating new perspectives into his life and art
