David to Delacroix : the rise of romantic mythology by Dorothy Johnson ( Book )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 728 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. His exploration of the complexities and ambiguities of the psychology of love is central to his treatment of the subject. In addition to a history of David's career and his influence on the French school of painting, this study provides an analysis of the innovative iconography of the painting and the context in which it was created, as well as its contemporary reception

David d'Angers : sculptural communication in the age of romanticism by Jacques De Caso ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 4 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, architecture, and the dichotomy of art by Heidi Elizabeth Kraus ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In recent decades, the art and life of Jacques-Louis David have sparked a renewed surge of interest in the academic community. It is startling, however, that the often prevalent and imposing elements of architecture found in David's paintings have received little scholarly attention. This study fills a lacuna in David studies by providing a new perspective on his passionate engagement with architecture and its impact on his art. I begin by demonstrating that, following his trips to Rome early in his career, architecture became central to many of the artist's most celebrated compositions. Focusing chronologically on an approximately thirty-year period of the artist's career, I explore key paintings by David that serve as principal examples of the emphasis he placed on architecture and its ability to reaffirm, complement, intensify, and contribute layers of meaning to the central themes of his paintings. Throughout the dissertation, I identify principal architectural elements contained within these works and seek to determine their significance. David's engagement with architecture began at a young age. He was born into a family of architects and throughout his adolescence was surrounded by some of the most important thinkers, artists, and architects of the eighteenth-century. This unique upbringing and inclusion within Paris's elite cultural milieu had a tremendous impact on how David would come to understand architecture as an aesthetic vehicle capable of enhancing his works with added narrative and metaphorical meanings. The dissertation takes as its starting point an investigation into David's period as a pensionnaire at the French Academy in Rome where he became profoundly inspired by the Antique. David recorded the impact of the Roman experience on his artistic development within the pages of a dozen albums, which contain a vast number of drawings depicting the Italian landscape, ancient buildings and monuments, and antique sculpture
