The Odes by Horace( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Les guerres civiles terminées, Horace, dans ses "Odes", fait l'éloge de la vie tranquille devenue enfin possible grâce à Auguste et à ses réformes. S'il chante Rome et sa grandeur, s'il constate les bénéfices de la politique d'Auguste et loue la pacification de l'Italie, il chante aussi la douceur de l'amitié, le bonheur d'une vie simple, à l'abri des tentations de l'ambition ou de la richesse
Le nez de Rembrandt by Michael E Taylor( Book )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Même un bref coup d'oeil aux portraits de Rembrandt laisse voir une étonnante gamme de traitements du nez. Le nez de l'artiste lui-même et ceux des visages qu'il a peints, qu'il s'agisse de mendiants ou de bourgmestres, apparaissent comme acteurs sur la scène du visage : ils sont au premier plan, captent la lumière et crient leur présence parmi les ombres et demi-teintes dans lesquels les autres traits se réfugient. On ne peut pas ne pas les voir. Leur volume presque palpable joue un rôle central dans les compositions de l'artiste. Pourquoi cette obsession nasale? Exprime-t-elle une déviance psychologique ou une stratégie artistique, ou bien les deux? Dans cet essai sérieux, inventif et non conventionnel, l'auteur jette un regard nouveau sur le travail du peintre et dessinateur qui donna à l'art du portrait un poids et un rôle central inconnu jusqu'alors dans l'art occidental. Michael Taylor, dans cet essi inédit, mène le lecteur au coeur de l'art de Rembrandt. Accompagné d'un cahier inséré avec 50 illustrations en couleur

Rembrandt's nose : of flesh & spirit in the master's portraits by Michael R Taylor( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"For nearly four hundred years, art patrons, art historians, and art lovers have studied the work of the seventeenth-century Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn and wondered at the dramatic, almost impossible vitality of his portraits. What is it that makes them so startlingly, vividly alive across each new generation? How was it that the artist managed to paint his sitters - including himself - so that they would always appear to be breathing the very same air as ourselves? How was the flawed, brilliant, mysterious man able to convey even the most imperceptible gestures - from the slightest quiver of the lips to a momentary tremor of the nostrils - with nothing more than ground pigment, ink, or humble etching tools?" "In Rembrandt's Nose, the respected American-born, Paris based author and translator Michael Taylor endeavors to answer these enduring questions - and comes up with an astonishingly original conclusion. Chronicling Rembrandt's life and artistic evolution from his arrival in Amsterdam as a brash young artist, through his years of fame and extravagance, to the penury and grief of his final years in bankruptcy, Taylor takes us into Rembrandt's studio and right up to his easel, so that we feel we can almost touch the rich mounds of paint upon his palette and smell the fat tang of linseed oil over the pitchy salt air that drifts in through the open window. He describes precisely how our eyes take in the paintings so that we begin to see more in each image, right up to the last defining highlight on the tip of a nose. With careful, elegant, and inquisitive prose, Taylor probes the mysteries of Rembrandt's legacy and offers u an immensely pleasurable read that is as light and witty as it is illuminating."--BOOK JACKET
