Gustave Moreau, the watercolors by Pierre-Louis Mathieu( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty-four plates of excellent quality, 40 in color and 8 of these enlarged a bit beyond the original, reproduce a sampling of the 400 or so little-known watercolors by the Symbolist Moreau (1826-98). An expert on the artist, Mathieu here writes for the casual reader, covering mostly generalities in a two-chapter essay and so-so commentaries on the plates. Themes include Moreau's relation to Romanticism, Symbolism, poetry, and the erotic. Mathieu, who inscrutably confuses any implied chronology with several early dated works placed at the end of the book, finally agrees that Moreau developed his own nonfigurative style prior to Kandinsky's first abstract watercolor. One wishes this book were better organized and less repetitious, and that it spoke in more detail of the works themselves. For large collections. Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Art Dept., Goucher College, Md.

Gustave Moreau : magic and symbols by Geneviève Lacambre( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trained in Renaissance art traditions, Moreau helped to open the way for modern art, and was especially fascinating to the later Surrealists, themselves drunk on dreams. Genevieve Lacambre takes us into the heart of this man's unique creativity, exploring his life and artistic sources. More than 120 paintings, drawings, and watercolors and a wealth of documents, letters, and photographs illustrate the life and work of this singular artist."--Jacket

La Sulamite dévoilée : genèse du Cantique des Cantiques de Gustave Moreau by Gustave Moreau( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue de l'exposition présentée au Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon du 15 octobre 2011 au 16 janvier 2012. Commandé en 1852 à Gustave Moreau, la Sulamite dévoilée fut exposé au salon de 1853 aux côtés des Baigneuses de Courbet et du Tépidarium de son ami Chassériau dont l'influence est manifeste dans cette oeuvre. Moreau a réalisé de très nombreuses études préparatoires - gouaches, huiles, aquarelles, dessins au crayon - conservées pour la plupart au musée Gustave Moreau à Paris, dans une filiation encore très proche de ses maîtres romantiques. L'artiste puise son inspiration dans l'un des fameux livres de la bible, Le Cantique des Cantiques suite de poèmes et de chants d'amour, dont la Sulamite est l'héroine. Accompagnant l'exposition, l'ouvrage présente ce chef-d'oeuvre de jeunesse de Gustave Moreau en le resituant par rapport à l'héritage romantique de Chassériau et en explorant la vision de l'Orient de Moreau et de ses contemporains
Gustave Moreau : between epic and dream by Gustave Moreau( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) was one of the most influential and idiosyncratic painters of the nineteenth century. He developed a reputation as an artistic hermit, committed to a highly personal vision of painting that combined myth, mysticism, history, and a fascination with the bizarre and exotic. Yet Moreau was also a prominent public figure in the Paris art world, winning praise for exhibits at the Salon, becoming a respected teacher at the Ecole des beaux-arts, and exerting a powerful influence on Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault, and the schools of Symbolism and Surrealism. This book, published to coincide with a spectacular international exhibition that marks the centenary of Moreau's death, presents a wide range of the artist's most famous and beautiful works along with penetrating essays and catalogue entries that explain his unique achievements in all their intellectual complexity and visual richness."--Jacket
